Where Did My Synchronicity Go?
The first time you really experience a synchronistic event in your life, you feel a real sense of wonder and awe. It can be difficult quite simply because you get so excited about it that you want to tell everyone, and more often than not, you’ll get blown off and people will discount it as a coincidence.
As synchronicity keeps happening you begin to get that sense of destiny I love to talk about so much. You begin to see the order that lies beneath the surface of what we think is a chaotic and random world. You begin to feel a sense of safety and your faith strengthens.
You ride the wave and wonderful unexpected things happen, life clicks into place at all the right moments. You find yourself in the right place at the right time and you start loving the simple act of living.
Then one day you wake up, expecting the trend to continue and wham, there it goes. Your winning streak runs out.
You look around at things suddenly taking the opposite momentum. Your tire blows. Your boss hands you the pink slip. Life gets tough again. You wonder, “gee, did I do something wrong?”
Sometimes the answer is yes, you just took a big step in the wrong direction. You made a choice that was out of alignment with your destiny. When you do that, rebalancing is going to happen. You’ll receive as much displeasure as it takes to provoke you back along the straight and narrow. This isn’t a punishment. It is really nothing personal at all. It is simply a predictable way to get you back on track.
There are a few things I can assure you will cause this to happen with certainty. It may take awhile to show up, but it certainly will if you continue in these actions.
The most certain way to stop synchronicity is to dwell in thoughts of anger, judgement or fear.
If you’re paying too much attention to the news and your obsessing over the fine job our president has made of ruining our economy, or you’re worried about the gas climbing to 5.00 a gallon, or if you just can’t get over an argument you had with your spouse and you brood about it, it will take you out of the flow.
Anger is the fear of not getting what you want, fear is the belief that something awful will happen, judgement is when you have to be right. All of these things impede the flow. The reason is you are taking yourself out of the now and either harping on the past or fretting about the future.
Synchronicity occurs when you are living in the NOW.
By accepting exactly where you are in this moment, you embrace the now. So if you are currently laid out with the flu, think, “This is wonderful, my body is telling me I need to relax for awhile. I must have ignored it too long. No matter, I’ll rest and take this time to enjoy my bed.” If you find yourself in the unemployment line, say, “This is a wonderful new opportunity to explore new avenues of expressing my talents.” By taking this positive attitude about where you are now, you allow the flow to carry you to the next step.
This is one the biggest secrets I used to survive cancer, bankruptcy and divorce. Trust me, this really works.
The Buddha said it is only the things we resist that cause us to suffer.
