Nope. Never had a episode of synchronicity, only coincidences and happenstance.

Stories? What happened during those incidents?

i think synchronicity? is the connection of the mind to the outside world.. sometimes there are things that the mind creates in just a second of thinking...making a person not so inclined to his thinking making so many mind creations..
i think its the mind... its always in the mind...

I am not sure what you are asking.

Yes. The mind is adept at taking seemingly related yet separate incidences and trying to make them seem connected even when they are not.

Like thinking casually about, say, a person you seen at a library then seeing them again at a local cafe. Mere coincidence yet the brain, depending on the programming it received, may very well assume it means something.

I just experienced synchronicity today, which lead me to this thread.. lol.. spooky...

But seriously,

I tend to have them a lot more now that I'm more spiritually aware.. A dream that may seem random or plain old bizzare get's scribbled in my dream journal, and something during the day reminds me of the dream, or in today's case, two things. Sometimes the synchronicity seems vague but recognisable, such as dreaming of dead cattle in a field, then learning first thing in the morning that 120 local cows were found dead overnight from poisoned water (this happened this morning). And sometimes it's just in your face, such as a exact words spoken to you in a dream as in real life..

Those two were todays examples in my life.. But I've had others, some that seem to take weeks to unfold, others that come in triplicate or quadupilite within an hour or two and really make the hair stand on end.. actually I think there's a really big one playing out right now that has something to do with the importance of water...

I have a recent example of what I guess might come under as synchronicity.  Maybe just call it.. nice timing.

My son was starting to get bullied at school by two kids. The smaller one would call names and sometimes ask my son to fight him when the bigger one was with him. So it was like the smaller one was the trouble maker. My son said the bigger one wasnt too bad when the smaller one wasnt around. Anyway this went on and off for a few weeks despite the smaller one having to write a letter home to his mother about it(I told my son to let the teachers know).

Anyway I got annoyed and.. wished that the smaller one would stop. I thought if he broke his arm or something then he might not want to fight anymore. I thought this about 3 weeks ago. Anyway I asked my son again only yesterday on how they have been and he said not too bad(I've asked since then but he just says "ok"). He said the smaller one has been ok but probably because he broke his arm at the skate park about 2 weeks ago. He said his arm has been in a cast and a sling for the last 2 weeks.

lol.

I have decided I have to much time on my hands. The kids are in school now, and I don't do anything on Tuesday's or Thursday's except work in my garden.  My business is exactly what it should be I have no desire grow it bigger. I would like to store some extra cash in a big way for the kids college or finish off my mortgage in a few years,, so I was trying to come up with something on the side to do for solid cash, but still would not take away the freedom I enjoy. I used to have a real estate license but I never did any thing with it. I was thinking about contacting an old client and friend who is a real estate broker who has tried for years to get me in the business. I'm sitting waiting for my oldest son to get out of class. When he does we sit down and get out his homework to wait the 40 minutes it takes my other one to get out. To my dismay out of his folder falls my old friends card. It has the Rolodex holes in it from when I used to keep one years ago. It's buried in some drawer somewhere, but Jim's card somehow made it into my sons homework folder.
Nice!!!

Scarf hold... Best thing for physical bullies . Verbal bullies must be ignored.

This past year, I've had many, many things happen to me that all seemed to follow a certain pattern.
I don't know whether you could call it 'synchronicity' - but I found myself amazed after each one of them, usually concluding that "everything's connected". Like a gigantic leitmotif. Some of it might be down to pure coincidence, sure. But then again, I am not really a beliefer in pure coincidence.

This past year, I have also consciously, if slowly, started to go on a spiritual path, carefully dipping into the bigger picture, trying to expand my views and skills. To me, those things that happen are a sign that I am on the right track. I am a fan of the unified field theory - and those pointers strongly hint to me that indeed, everything is interlinked. And if I open my eyes, I can see those connections.

Hope that makes sense.

Yeah the kid was trying to get physical but only when there was two of them. So if my son had fought back the bigger kid wouldve jumped in. They are trying to stamp out bullying so thats why we went down the road of telling the teachers first(he's only 11). I also told him that its better to make the teachers aware so if you do ever fight back you wont look like the bully.

He knows how to look after himself ok though. He's got a junior blue belt in Taijutsu(he started when he was 5) but that place closed down so now he's been doing Jujitsu. He's green belt in that and he also does Brazilian Jujitsu. He's also got a few colours in kickboxing too but we're taking a break from that.  So yeah right now mainly Jujitsu and BJJ. So he has 6 years under his belt from when he started Taijutsu. I tell him its a part of his schooling basically, so when he is out of high school he will be able to really look after himself. So you can tell I worry about him because I've seen what can happen in life.

Anyway I thought it was nice timing with the broken arm. It was just what I was after.

Awesome. Yeah that's the right thing to do. Putting bullies in their place is really a last resort these days.

My oldest is 7. He used the scarf hold on kid in a jump house at a birthday party that would not leave him alone. Held the kid until the kid started to cry then let go like he was taught.

Funny thing talking about synchronicity. No other parents intervened because evidentially this kid is a huge problem and they were happy to see a another kid deal with it. The dad of the other kid was there, but he complete ignores what's happening with a nose in his book. He did not even know that his kid was crying. Towords the end of the party, I engaged him a little bit. Politely of course. Within seconds of talking to him I could tell the dad was on the spectrum. Probably high functioning aspergers. ( im not sure if he had ever been diagnosed)  Most aspergers people cannot tell something is socially wrong unless someone directly tells them. They will completely not understand Somone beating around the bush. This kids behavior was a result of his fathers condition!!!! After informing him of his kids behaviour, what the other parents feel about it, and what just happened in the jump house ( I know that might seem rude, but it's actually exactly exactly how autistic people should be addressed ), he was completely mortified. As I suspected, he had absolutely no idea.

The kid ended up takeing lessons from me for a little while until he went to live with his mother.

Anyway a good story. I also earned ( or rather my son did) some more business from some of the moms at the party.

I also think syncronicity is spirits moving stuff, they can be warnings of danger or of negative energy... This is true in my case I don't know about any of you guys...

Just quoating myself to re-iteratie that Synchronicities sometimes take weeks to show up..
This though i think is bordering on pre-cognition..

I have two instances of synchronicity(that I can remember at the moment; I'm sure there are more).

The first concerns birthday presents I received. On two seperate birthdays I received the same presents from two different people. On both occasions they were items that I hadn't asked for, had never given any indication I liked or would use such an item and had never used such an item before. In other words, these two people chose at the same time to buy the same completely random item for me. On one birthday I actually received three items that appeared to have the same use, although to this day I have no idea what they are for! One was ceramic, one stainless steel and one wooden and they were very similar in design and size. I asked all of the donors(by letter and email because they all live abroad), what the item was to be used for and none of them replied!!!!! I still have no idea what they are for, as I have never seen anything similar since. I've given them all to charity shops as I didn't know what to do with them and they weren't attractive enough to simply put on display.

The second concerns an email I wrote to a someone. It was a very long email telling him about some experiences I'd had long before I met him. While I was recounting these memories, a song from that time was running through my head. This was 45yrs after I had first heard it, and in the interim I had probably heard it two or three times at the most. Although it was a number one when it first came out it hasn't remained popular and is virtually never played.
When I'd finished the email I went to YouTube and guess what was at the top of the list of videos chosen for me? You've guessed it! The tune that had just been running through my head! Apart from the fact(?) that YouTube can't read my emails ..... can they/it? I didn't mention the song in any way in the email. I didn't even mention a date, so it's not as if YouTube could pick up on that and pick the number one from that year. I don't mind admitting I nearly wet myself when it happened! :o

What, in all the world, could I do to earn my living and still live as myself, as I knew myself to be? Temporary masks, I knew, had their place; everyone was wearing them, they were the human rage; but not masks cemented in place until the wearer could not breathe and was eventually suffocated.

My explanation for synchronicity is simple:

Before original sin we were all aware of the algorhythmic frequency that god communicated on. Afterwords, our conscious minds became blind to it's existence, so that every time our unconscious mind tunes into it, it appears as some inconceivably random coincidence... It can happen so often that nothing short of true unwielding faith in god's love will keep you from psychiatric jail. Even if you're rid of physically violent thoughts, synchronicity will turn you into a nihilist if you refuse to accept it as part of a higher plan.

But religious language is *unecessary, it is essentially just a frequential algorhythmic vibration that all living things are tuned into.

*edit: Well, it's necessary because no one has ever converted the symbol architecture into anything near-scientific, and the architecture is in fact what it is. The point is that we understand the morals before we go crazy with science.

Be afraid of what you might lose by abandoning the language of the bible, is probably what I'm trying to say.
