The Universe is so clearly interconnected and energetic, it’s absolutely crazy. In fact ever since making the choice to “be happy” and stop moping over my ex and go to Montreal, I’ve been experiencing new connections, surprises, and TONS of synchronicity.
When I came back from Montreal, I immediately purchased a one-way flight to Bali, Indonesia.
Since then about DAILY I’ve experienced a new synchronicity or strange coincidence. I am super upbeat and energized writing this for a new one literally JUST happened!
In this post, I will share with you some of my life synchronicity recently. Keep in mind this is happening to you too- you just have to open your eyes and be aware. Living authentically will help aid the process as well because when you’re on your “true path” things will start aligning in strange ways.
Wild Universal Synchronicity – Stories & Meanings
In Montreal I met a girl and we became good friends for the duration of the stay. We met with her randomly sitting across from me in a coffee shop.
We connected then, and when I went to add her on Facebook we were both utterly surprised to find out we were friends- but we didn’t remember each other! We had no chat history either.
Upon trying to figure out how we could’ve met (as we both were traveling frequently in the past year), we realized that 9 months prior we met on the street in Montreal randomly and she was going to give me some advice on moving to Germany as an American.
I traveled the world from there, and she around Europe. When we met in Montreal I was there for 2 weeks and her for 2 months. We both left to travel. When we met again in Montreal, I was there for 2 weeks and her for 3 weeks- again we were in the same time period. Strange, huh?
Other synchronicistic events happened in Montreal, but it got especially juicy upon returning to Phoenix. I immediately purchased my one-way to Bali, and that’s when shit gets weird…
A day or two after returning, a random guy asked if he knew me, much similar to how me and the girl in Montreal met. Turns out we had crossed paths 3 years prior in Phoenix, and had several mutual friends.
We connected, chatted for a bit, and we both learned stuff from each other. He now may refer a potential client or two over to me, and I’ve offered up any travel help I possibly could as he wishes to live a lifestyle similar to me.
The day after, in the same restaurant, I met a girl from over 2 years ago from Phoenix. This story is especially crazy.
One day me & a friend were going to the mall to try meet some girls. He wanted to meet this girl but was nervous, so I pushed him to meet her. They met, then met randomly later at some epic party event. He then invited her to his New Year’s Party from 2017 to 2018.
Me and the girl met, we instantly connected and had a deep connection for about a week before going our own paths.
We then met 1 day after she broke up with her ex, and just a few days after I returned back from Montreal. That week we kept “coincidentally” meeting ALL OVER THE PLACE that week, and one time we met 2 or 3 times just in one day.
We decided we needed to hangout- the Universe was clearly connecting us! In fact, the way we reconnected was funny- I overheard her on the phone saying “I want a tattoo,” and after her call I told her I wanted one also. We then realized we knew each other…
Instantly our meeting had synchronicity because I wanted a tattoo, she was talking about getting a tattoo, and then we reconnected. Oh but it gets crazier…
We’ve been connecting a lot- she’s become a wonderful friend very quickly. She uplifts me quite a bit and she says I do the same for her. We’ve also been teaching each other a lot about relationships, spirituality, etc. especially as we are both getting over our exes.
Yesterday while hanging out, we were talking about travel. She was considering doing a travel trip somewhere- perhaps Asia & Europe.
She told me of a place she had always wanted to go to, where they teach something very particular. It was somewhere in Thailand. We looked up the location and… it was in the one place in Thailand I haven’t been to but really want to go to!
I’ve always wanted to go to Koh Phangan, Thailand, but haven’t gone yet. Suddenly she is free to travel, and she also wants to go to that island (but didn’t even know which island…). We are now currently planning to meet in Thailand and explore that island together.
Oh but it gets even crazier. This girl loves “Acro” yoga (am I misspelling this?) which is basically where 2 people work together to make one person fly or something like that.
Tonight I was invited to an event where they do this, and I decided to go. I will meet her and her friends and this community.
Of course first I must work- so I am currently in my favorite Phoenix coffee shop, and the barista I always see “randomly” asks what my travel plans are. I tell him that I’m moving to Indonesia next week. He says, “where, Bali?” I respond with “yes, Canggu!”
He tells me he has some friends there that practice.. can you guess it..? ACRO YOGA! He will now give me their contact information. I just texted my friend interested in Acro that I feel she will have to make a Bali trip too…
With no effort of my own, I already have 2+ acquaintances that I can meet in Bali. One is successful in business, so I’ll be plugged into that. The other practices yoga & spirituality stuff, so I’ll be plugged into that. I also randomly started messaging with a guy from Reddit who is surfing in Bali, so we may hit up some surf together.
Before I knew I was going to Canggu (famous for surf), I couldn’t decide between there or Ubud, which is more-so in the mountains. I asked my heart what I was feeling, and it leaned towards Canggu. That day I went to yoga, and my yoga instructor told me “a restless mind is like waves, and you need to learn to surf them” (or something close to that). Coincidence?
To make this all a bit more humorous, I randomly decided to read “The Celestine Prophecy.”
Guess what the first part of the fictional book is all about? Synchronicity and coincidences, of course! It’s just so hilarious how with all of this synchronicity I randomly pick up a book that is… about synchronicity!
The synchronicity goes on and on, my friends. The Universe is beautifully connected, and it wants what’s best for all. The Universe is working through all of us. If you pay attention to it and live authentically, you’ll notice all of the strange coincidences.
In fact the last time I wrote a post about synchronicity in this coffee shop 2 people behind me started talking about synchronicity in the Universe at the same time…
You can’t deny that there’s something “more” going on in this world. I used to not believe in such things, but now the evidence can’t be denied! The Universe is truly mystical and beautiful, and energy permeates through each of us and all things.
Pay attention to the synchronicity. It is everywhere. It is always. Everything is happening for a reason, IF you open your eyes to it and go with the right flow.
Every day recently I’ve been experiencing synchronicity to some degree. It’s truly beautiful to witness. Live authentically and pay attention and you’ll observe the same mystery (:
Recently a friend/reader responded to my “Follow Your Heart” post, specifically the parts about Universal Synchronicity & strange coincidences when you’re following your heart because the Universe is actually energetically connected. I also wrote a post completely about Universal Synchronicity which was referenced.
SIDENOTE: WHAT THE F*** THE PEOPLE BEHIND ME STARTED TALKING ABOUT SYNCHRONICITY IN THE WORLD, IMMEDIATELY WHEN I STARTED WRITING THIS!
Okay, I wish I had a damn recorder on me. For the past few weeks to month of my life, I’ve been living a lot more authentically, and Universal Synchronicity has been happening on the daily to the point that it’s not even surprising me anymore!
I could write a huge essay on every synchronicity that has happened, but I’ll save you the details. A short example would be just now, I decide to write this article and BAM! The people behind me in this coffee shop start going on about synchronicity in the world.
It’s happening so often it’s not even surprising anymore. But, what does it mean?
My friend/reader told me she just bought a one-way abroad from her country to be happy because she’s struggling to get over her ex. We both experienced break ups in the same month.
She was later scrolling her Facebook feed, and saw her ex was going to the same city abroad she was going to! This all happened after she read my posts on “Following Your Heart” (authenticity creating synchronicity) and “Universal Synchronicity.”
Coincidence? Step 1, decide to be happy. Buy ticket abroad. Step 2, read my blog posts on authenticity & synchronicity. Step 3, realize that your ex is going to the same place.
What does it mean? Well, I gave her a long response (as I always like to do) and thought that others could benefit from the long response to her.
The question was essentially, “what is the meaning of synchronicity?” For the sake of time, I’ll write my answers now, and then you can also read my response to her Email, which will be the section beneath this next one.
What is the Meaning of Synchronicity?
I feel like the meaning of synchronicity is open to interpretation in the moment, but the real answer always reveals itself in the end. Because we can’t always know what’s going on we sometimes just have to observe & continue with the flow.
Like many things in life, we don’t know the answer until it reveals itself. During the act, we are clueless. That’s part of the joy & beauty of life.
Sometimes the meaning of a synchronicity will be abundantly clear, whereas in other times it will be quite vague.
An example of a clear synchronicity would be me struggling to decide whether to stay on the beach or in the mountains in Bali. I was leaning towards the beach because I love surf. Then when I was feeling that, my yoga instructor told me “a restless mind is like the waves, and you must learn to surf the waves” (or something like that, not exact).
It instantly became clear that Canggu (the surf village on the beach) was definitely the right, most authentic and aligned choice for me.
Other synchronicity in my life has been less clear, but became clear later on. For example I noticed when I arrived back in Phoenix I instantly connected with a new friend who also was struggling with a break up.
Now I’ve realized just how much he’s helped me grown, and I’ve also helped answer questions about his own life which he never realized as well (such as personality theory & chronic pain healing).
I also have synchronicity in my life which I can’t make certain of, such as coincidences involving my ex, or meeting a girl I went out with over 2 years ago, who also strangely is getting over a recent break up also!
All that we can say certainly is that we indeed live in an energetic, ever-connected world. Any world traveler will tell you that because the degree of which I’ve traveled makes coincidences like what I’ve experienced too impossible to account for statistics. The energetic truth of this world becomes more apparent the more intent you get in your actions (authenticity) too.
When it comes to interpreting synchronicity, if the answer is not abundantly clear (and it should feel calm, not like you need to prove anything) then you should just let it be and not try to ascribe too much meaning to it prematurely. You don’t want to give false meaning to something which will later end up meaning something else!
At any rate, you can enjoy the synchronicity for what it is: energetic connection. In the case of my ex, as well as my friend’s ex, it could mean that we are meant to com back together, or that perhaps me & my reader are connected in some way because we are experiencing this thing together, OR in my opinion, which could very well be wrong, it means that we are still energetically connected to our exes.
Whether more or less is supposed to happen with our exes as a result of this energetic connection is up for time to reveal, but in the meantime we can all enjoy the dance of life.
In short, synchronicity is the proof of the world being energetic. It may also exist to help us realize that we can use “law of attraction” or visualize to harness these energies to manifest what we want.
Sometimes the meaning is abundantly clear. Sometimes it isn’t, but then you must have faith that it will show itself eventually. Be careful not to be too quick to come to a conclusion- take your time and the answer will reveal itself. Synchronicity does happen for a reason!
My Email Response
My email response is mostly the same but has some different examples / explanations. Note: some edits have been made to preserve confidentiality. Note 2: I did not fix typos.
Hey [name], thanks for your response as always! (: I love getting responses like these. I didn’t respond so soon because I wanted some time to respond to it with more depth, to actually read everything. A half-assed response is no response!
Honestly I don’t know what to say. My ex actually reached out to me yesterday. She ended up listening to me and my side, which is all I ever wanted in the relationship- was to feel heard. Now that she’s given me exactly what I needed, I don’t know how I feel about things entirely yet. It was also rather strange timing for her to reach out to me [reasons undisclosed even to reader].
So you must be kind of feeling the same way, trapped and confused. Uncertain of what all this means. Honestly I can’t say that I know what it means, I could only hypothesize and even then it could be wrong.
It could mean that you two will find your way back to each other, but I don’t want to give you false hope. It’s better to assume the latter, which is simply that you two are energetically connected still, and that energy is fading out. It could be some test of the Universe. It could mean that spiritually you are both connected and so both felt compelled to take a trip to [city] (nothing we ever do is really by our own design, we are all influenced by all others all at the same time).
That being said your motive for going was really fascinating- what I find crazy & synchronistic here is how you made a decision to be happy, and then you observed a synchronicstic experience with your ex (he also shall be traveling to the Netherlands). I also have recently made a decision to be happy, by traveling to Bali, and then my ex decided to reach out to me and give me the 1 thing which I always wanted from the relationship.
Now we both feel conflicted. It is meaning for sure, there is definitely something going on, but be careful not to ascribe to it any meaning [prematurely]. For example, it could mean that “you and I are meant to be” (don’t take this literally, it’s just a very figurative example), as we are both experiencing a break up. It could also mean that “you and I are meant to re-unite with our exes.” Or it could also just mean “you and I are energetically and synchronicstically connected, while also still energetically connected to our exes, and so attracting strange coincidences and circumstances in our life to confuse us.”
Note: I want to make very clear I don’t actually mean that me and the reader are “meant to be” together, I was just giving an absurd example of how many interpretations there are to any synchronicity. Generally speaking the answer is the most obvious one, or answer of least effort required to obtain- simplicity is golden, however in any case when unclear give it more time for the truth to reveal.
I also have 2 friends here in Phoenix that are struggling to get over break ups- one near the same time period, and another which happened a couple weeks ago, and me and that girl actually went out over 2 years ago here in Phoenix! We met all by chance, in very strange & coincidental ways. The girl I went out with “back then” I synchronistically met something like 4 or 5 times in one week. However [undisclosed, basically I can’t figure out the meaning of meeting that girl again].
Or, perhaps all of this is happening to remind us that the law of attraction is real, and that there are strange energies occurring. It just occurred to me that these synchronistic things could have inherently no meaning, yet have meaning as a result of having no meaning. What I mean is that we are simply energetically connected, and that’s why these things happen, but they don’t happen for us to reunite with our ex but rather to remind us of the energetic forces in life.
Wow, that was much longer than I thought it would be. I wish I could say more about your situation, but I felt I could only help you by sharing my situation a bit to reveal just that synchronicity is a strange and unpredictable phenomenon that leaves the meaning open for interpretation. While I do believe that there is inherent meaning in almost every “coincidence,” and that it is Universal synchronicity, I would also advise against ascribing it too much meaning (unless the meaning is clear) and let things play out as they may- and then in the end things will make sense.
One final example of this would be me undecided of whether I should stay in Canggu (surfing) or Ubud (mountains) in Bali. My heart leaned towards Canggu, then I went to yoga and the instructor told me that “when the mind is rough it is like waves, and we need to learn to surf the waves.” They have never met a water/surf reference EVER before. In this case it was quite apparent that Canggu was indeed the right choice, and I should follow-through with it.
In the cases of our exes, and what strange happenings may be with that, I can’t comment on what they mean, though I do have my suspects, but enjoy the dance and let it play out as it may.
