#atozchallenge – S for Synchronicity

Happy Saturday!  It is day 21 of the #atozchallenge and boy are my typing fingers tired. I had a great short list of bizarre S words from which to choose today, but opted instead for a word that I absolutely love:

Synchronicity
/siNGkrəˈnisitē/
Noun:  The experience of two or more events that are apparently causally unrelated or unlikely to occur together by chance and that are observed to occur together in a meaningful manner. The concept of synchronicity was first described in this terminology by Carl Gustav Jung, a Swiss psychologist, in the 1920s. (from wikipedia)

I remember reading The Alchemist by Paul Coelho and being absolutely blown away by the notion that when a person chooses to follow their personal legend, the Universe conspires in their favor.  How awesome is that? To have The Force as a guide when you’re on the right track?

I don’t think it means that you need to find that one single thing that you’re meant to do on this earth and only then will you find this synchronicity. I think it is simpler than that. I think your personal legend can have a billion facets and acting on any one of them can cause “chance” and “God” and “the Universe” to fall into place for you, to bolster you and give you a glimpse of possibility.

I also think it is important to pay attention in order to capture these moments and realize them for what they are.

So, it is all just coincidence, or is there something bigger at work?
