What Is Synchronicity?
Are synchronicities signs from the Universe or coincidence? The coincidental occurrence of events, especially psychic events, seem related but are not explained by conventional mechanisms of causality – used mostly in C. G. Jung’s psychology. Let’s look at the synchronicity definition found on Wikipedia, which defines Synchronicity as “a concept, first introduced by analytical psychologist Carl Jung, which holds that events are ‘meaningful coincidences’ if they occur with no causal relationship yet seem to be meaningfully related.” Mostly you think of our world as a conglomeration of events and occurrences brought forth through a state of cause and effect. Something happens that then causes something else to happen as for synchronicity. That is not the case.

How To Interpret Synchronicities
There are related things that show up in your reality with Synchronicities, but one didn’t cause the other. So if you look at the word synchronicity itself, you can break it up into halves. These halves being taken from ancient greek, from the greek Syn meaning “together,” and Khronos, referring to “time.”
Let’s take a look at Sync first. As human beings, we talk about being in sync. Synchronized is also a widespread word generally depicting things that are in tune with each other such as synchronized swimmers. They are in harmony with one another. They all make the same movements at the same time.
Another example is fish as they swim. A school of fish will all move what seems to be simultaneous. They turn in the same direction at almost the same time.
In our new digital age, you would sync all your devices so that the information in all of your equipment matches up.
Basically, being in sync with someone or synchronizing with them means being on the same page to be in alignment. You would have synchronicity with another person.
Asynchronous may refer to an event that corresponds to another, the two similar events occurring simultaneously. They coincide in time or their subject.
On a more spiritual note, a synchronistic event can happen in a specific time sequence, and that makes corresponding events seem significant in some unique way, thus being called Synchronicity. For example, if you saw a butterfly today and the next time you noticed a butterfly was next year, you would not say that there was anything Synchronicitis.
However, if you woke up this morning and saw a butterfly, you recall you dreamed about a butterfly the previous night. Then you went on a walk and saw three more butterflies; at this point, you might say that that’s synchronicity. This is because you see all these butterflies, and they have a meaning for you within a time frame that allows for that meaning to register.
Are Coincidences Signs From God?
Other synchronicity examples that are being more noticed in our time are what I call awakening codes. It is prevalent for people at this time of mass awakening to see strings of numbers such as 1 1 1 or 2 2 2 2?

Regardless of the string of numbers you see, there is probably some meaning for you. The fact is that it is not just the numbers but how they show up. For instance, just glancing at a clock and the time is 1:11. That is something that is showing up that has meaning for you within your reality. Just like this idea of synchronicities events, it’s telling you something.
Asking for a sign from God is quite normal for people and receiving answers is as well. The only real issue is interpreting signs from the Universe. Again concerning strings of numbers, they may mean that you are in the right place at the right time, or maybe it is validating you. One particular thing is that your energy is aligned with your higher path, also known as your life purpose, reflecting at you, or the very least. You’re being urged to pay attention and orient yourself in a particular direction. Another typical example is people who see feathers all the time, which one may interpret as a sign of their guardian angel is wanting to communicate with them.
Experiencing Multiple Coincidences May Be Called Synchronicity
What is happening energetically when these synchronicity numbers or feathers or any other set of multiple coincidences can be considered synchronistic? If your energy is clear and high and you are in alignment with the highest and greatest good, the Universe will line up for you. Then your reality will show up in a synchronicity way. In a way, as if it is saying you are managing your energy well, and you get to manifest what you need whenever you need it, completely effortlessly.
When you are in sync, you are in alignment, and you will be given feedback from the Universe. You will be prompted to move in the direction of greater alignment.
So How Can Synchronicity Show In Your Life To Help You?
A simple example is you are trying to decide whether to say yes or no to something. You are struggling with your decision. Let’s say you’re driving along the highway. All of a sudden, you see a bumper sticker on the car in front of you. It says, do it. Or maybe while you’re trying to make the decision, you turn the radio on. The song that is playing in some way gives you the answer to which choice to take.
Synchronicity Vs. Coincidence
Synchronicity usually has a personal meaning for the person who is experiencing the event. It’s different than a coincidence. For example, a coincidence might be that you are in the doctor’s waiting room and reading a magazine. It’s about someone with a particular surname. Let’s use Tom Hanks.
Then the receptionist comes out and asks for Mr. Hanks. Well, that’s a coincidence. There’s no personal meaning for you necessarily in that event. For it to be considered a synchronicity, it must have a particular purpose for you.
Now you go home, and you hear water running only to find you have a burst pipe on entering the house. So need to find a plumber and fast. You check out the internet, and the first plumber you encounter is called Hanks Plumbing. Instantly, you know this is related to you and your reality, so this has now become synchronictic.
Regardless of the signs, the key is to learn how to pay attention and interpret them. This is where your intuition comes into play. You, too, can learn how to translate these messages.

Questions and comments from listeners during the broadcast of Are Synchronicities Signs From The Universe Or Coincidence:
- Could you talk about how to clear and protect your home from negative energies or entities and what to do if you encounter something like that? Is there a prayer or spell that would help protect me?
- I meditate regularly and totally am open to signs, signals, and so on; how can I make it stronger? I listen to it, I act on it, but I want to take the next step? What do you suggest?
- Also, would you do a Psychic Blue Print on a Sunday?
- My 2 siblings had synchronized dreams on Dec 2, 2017. Both of them were living in different countries and in different time zones. They both had a dream about our youngest brother, who was hugged by our dad, who already passed away. Everything they both described was the same as if they were both in each other dreams. The scenario there was there were people in our home-country crying about our brother. Later on Nov 4, 2018, our youngest brother died from a tragic motorbike accident. My question is: if this kind of dream appears as a warning, could it be prevented if we/they have paid attention to it?
- Can you actually create synchronicity, or is it random?
- Hello! I am enjoying the show. I used to dream a lot and remember my dreams. That no longer happens. I have asked for it, but it has not happened. Do you have any insight?
