Years and years ago I had a walk with a friend and told her that I had a remarkable series of coincidences. Every time I had a question, something turned up to give me an answer and the right opportunity came up when I needed it. My friend said "Oh you are talking about synchronicity or meaningful coincidence. That is more common than you think" she said and she gave me a book to read about it.
Synchronicity comes and goes in my life. I think when it doesn't happen for a while this is because I am not open to it as I am too caught up with daily life. The following happenings are my two favourite examples of synchronicity in my life.
I hardly ever remember my dreams but one I remember very clearly is the following;
I am floating in the air and enjoy the sensation of being weightless. Suddenly I am lying down next to a balcony. The balcony surrounds a black square hole. I know I have to go back into that hole. That is were my life is but at the moment all is white and light. A few people are standing at the opposite site. I recognise one face clearly. The rest is vague. Suddenly a bold man, with glasses appears next to me. He wears a white gown. He says "we need you" I haven no idea what he is talking about.. At the same time I look to the other side and know that the people I see at the opposite side are there to help me. Then I wake up.
This dream appeared when I was in a very difficult period in my life. A short time after this dream the person I recognised in my dream had a huge, life changing effect on my life.
The second experience was during a time when I felt stuck. I worked at that time with children and enjoyed it.
I also wrote articles and 3 of them got published in a short period of time. It was all very time consuming and I felt I had to make a choice and decide which path to follow. I couldn't. Just then my eye fell on an add. There was a workshop in town about "finding your purpose in life" and thought "just what I need". I went and came into a small hall with about 60 people. We had to ask the person sitting next to us questions to work out our purpose and I figured I had to become a writer but felt edgy about it.
After that a young woman was called on stage as she was stuck. The interviewer said that there are two dimension to your purpose. She worked out that the primary purpose of the woman, who was stuck was to love. She continued that a number of people are destined to express the primary purpose in a certain role. This role is the secondary purpose.
She continued that it didn't matter in this case how this woman expressed her purpose whether it was by writing articles for magazines or working with children. The woman on stage said "I haven't done either of them" The interviewer mumbled "I know" The woman sitting next to me poked me excitingly saying "she is talking about you." I said "It sure is a coincidence!". . I felt I didn't have to choose anymore. I found my answer.
