The Hidden Meaning Of Coincidences & Synchronicity

The Hidden Meaning Of Coincidences & Synchronicity

When you experience a coincidence, what do you do? Do you shrug it off and think it’s no big deal? Next time a coincidence happens, pay attention. It could be a message from your loved ones in Heaven. Meaningful coincidences, synchronicities, come in a lot of different forms. If you pay attention, I bet you’ll see a lot of these. A friend of mine keeps a little notebook to write them down when she notices synchronicities. She calls them miracles. Here are a few ways these meaningful coincidences show up in our lives.

Have you ever had the same number show up over and over again? Sometimes a number will seem to randomly show up everywhere you look. But it’s not random. Noticing the same numbers on a clock is one example of a meaningful coincidence. Dates are another way numbers can show up to help us know our loved ones are helping us. A friend of mine lost her father at an early age. She says that sometimes things happen on her father’s birthday. It always seems like a coincidence at first, but now my friend sees that there is a message in that date. One year, she was laid off on her dad’s birthday. Because it happened on that day, my friend knew her dad was looking out for her and everything was going to be okay. Sure enough, within two weeks, she had an even better job that took her career in a whole new and exciting direction.

You hear the same song in the grocery store, on the radio, on the speakers at work. Such a coincidence! But is it? When you hear the same song over and over again, your loved ones in Heaven just might be trying to connect with you. Keep in mind that this song caught your attention for a reason! Listen closely to the lyrics, especially if they are repeated a lot. There’s probably a message in there. Maybe an answer to a big question.

There are a lot of symbols with special significance, and we see them everywhere. Sometimes seeing a symbol is a sign of a connection, or a message from one of your loved ones in Heaven. Maybe you are trying to decide whether to take a trip or move and you look up in the sky to see a cloud in the shape of an airplane. Or you are having a bad day, missing your loved one, and you see the symbol of something that was very important to that person, or something that was meaningful between the two of you. That’s your loved one saying “Hello, I’m here. You are not alone.”

Street names, place names, people’s names can all seem like coincidences but are really messages. A woman I met at one of my events told me that after her father died, she had to travel out of town to make a big presentation. She was still so sad about losing him and didn’t know how she was going to be able to do what she needed to do. When she arrived at her destination, she saw her father’s name, Joseph, on street signs, convention centers, restaurants and even in the name of the ballroom where she was making her presentation. It turned out that one of the founders of this particular city had the same first name as her dad. Coincidence? Not to her. To her, this was a message from her dad letting her know that he was with her and watching out for her. It gave her the courage she needed to do a great job. During her trip, every time she saw the name Joseph, she said, “Thanks, Dad!”

If you want to start noticing the coincidences, synchronicities, keep an open heart. Take some quiet time to clear your head from all the messiness of life. Maybe keep a small notebook and write down coincidences. At first, it is sometimes hard to notice these coincidences or think of them as meaningful. When you pay attention, you will start to see patterns, and then you will start to see them more and more. Your loved ones want to stay connected. Make sure you pay attention, and they will keep connecting with you.

Synchronicity from the Spirit Realm

Synchronicity from the Spirit Realm

Have you ever experienced a coincidence so unique and perfectly timed that you’re convinced Spirit orchestrated the whole thing, just to send you a message?

A woman came up to me after an event wanting to share a story. She felt that as a medium I could validate her belief that she had received guidance from beyond. She had been in a difficult, emotionally abusive marriage and had reached a breaking point. “I knew it was killing me to stay, but I thought I should keep trying. I didn’t know what to do.” That evening, she checked her voicemail and heard her husband’s voice. Somehow, she was overhearing a conversation he was having. About her. “He was talking about diary entries I had written. Private things I had never shared with another person. He had read my diary and was mocking me.” Painful as it was to experience this betrayal, she listened to the whole message. “He must have had this conversation from his office phone,” she told me, “but his cell phone somehow called the house number at just the right time.” She looked at me with a pained expression. “I felt like my late grandmother had pressed talk on his cell phone, so it would call the house. As though she wanted me to hear what he said and see the kind of person he really is. That Message let me have the courage to leave. She found a way to reach me.” Tears welled in her eyes. “Am I crazy to believe that?”

To feel her grandmother’s presence, to believe she was being helped from the other side by a woman who had loved and nurtured her is not crazy. Not at all.

I have heard so many stories of perfectly timed voicemails, people who appear in our lives just when we need them, a song with just the right lyrics that help answer a difficult question. These experiences are too powerful to be mere coincidence. They are moments of synchronicity that bring comfort in times of pain and guidance in times of uncertainty. They are the signposts that help us know we are on the right path or help steer us onto a new one. We just need to open our eyes, and our hearts, to hear the message and receive the gift.

A friend once shared her own experience with learning to see and appreciate synchronicity in her own life. She started a practice of writing down three miracles a day. “When I first heard this suggestion, I thought it was crazy,” she told me. “Miracles were things that happen to saints, not to ordinary people.” She mocked the exercise at first. “I got the great parking spot right in front of Walmart,” she said. Miracle. But even that simple example helped open her eyes. In a sad moment, she saw a butterfly flit by. “It felt as though the universe were saying hello.” Miracle. Then, she had an unexpected expense followed immediately by an unexpected opportunity for extra money. Miracle. “Now, I see miracles everywhere,” she said.

Many people would dismiss these experiences as coincidence and miss the opportunity to feel the connectedness. Our loved ones are there, and they want to help us. Miracle, synchronicity, the touch of a hand from the other side. When our hearts are open, and we are willing to change our perspective, the universe conspires to help us along the journey.

If you want to work on changing your perspective, so you can start seeing coincidence as loving guidance, I encourage you to try my friend’s exercise. Write down three miracles a day and see what happens.
