“Synchronicity is an ever-present reality for those who have eyes to see.”

Carl Jung

What is synchronicity?

It is an acausal connecting principle that explains the relationship between phenomena not connected by a cause-and-effect link but by time and meaning. 

For example, when you suddenly think about a person that you have not heard from in years, and then shortly after you meet them unexpectedly. If this happens, ask yourself if there is any deeper meaning behind meeting that particular person at that very moment. 

Maybe you have some unfinished business with that person that prevents you from developing further. Or you have projected some of your unconscious onto that person, and meeting them might help you become aware of some of your flaws or hidden talents.

You might wonder if there is any difference between synchronicity and coincidence.

The difference lies in detecting a meaning. In the latter case, two or more events happen simultaneously, but they neither have a subjective sense of being connected, nor have a special meaning to you.

Why is synchronicity relevant to you? 

Because it gives you different perspectives and meanings of events, profound insights into your life, and a sense of purpose and peace even during difficult times.

Your current worldview is determined by three essential categories: causation, time, and space. 

Once you start recognizing synchronicity, a complete understanding of your entire reality answers four questions: when did something happen, where did it happen, why did it happen, and what does it mean.

Only then can you fully understand an event.

What is a psychological explanation for this phenomenon? 

Synchronicity connects the mental (inner world) with the physical (outer world) and wipes out the subject-object polarity. It connects subjective (psychological) events with physical (external) events to form a whole.

Therefore, the external and internal “worlds” are connected and influence each other.
