Synchronicities are meaningful “coincidences” that can bring you closer to a life of abundance. Their occurrence often sends a message or teaches a lesson. If you ask the Universe to manifest something, and a seemingly unrelated synchronicity occurs, often it is the Universe showing you it is working behind the scenes. Acknowledge when the Universe sends you a sign or message, whether or not you understand it. I usually just say a silent “Thank you.”
I used to be skeptical about the existence of synchronicities sent from he Universe. It just sounded too unscientific, and too good to be true. Since then, many experiences have occurred in my life to prove that there are no such thing as coincidences.
One of these "coincidences" happened after l was listening to the audiobook The Universe Has Your Back by Gabrielle Bernstein. In the book, Gabby tells a story about how she looked for a sign to guide her while she was buying a house. The sign she chose was an owl. When I got home later that day, I was loading the dishwasher at the kitchen window; I looked out, and in an old tree behind my house was an owl. I had never seen an owl around here before, and I have never seen one since. Seeing that sign made me feel secure and supported in the Universe. It was like looking up at the stars on a clear night, in awe and wonder, with the sense that there are things much bigger than myself, but that I am part of it, too.
I have been experiencing synchronicities every day since I committed to believing in them. Last night I pulled an oracle card from my Crystal Spirits deck. It was Chrysocolla, which represents speaking my truth. Then, today, everything that I encountered was about finding and speaking one’s truth. The podcast I listened to, the book I flipped open, everything. I take this as a sign to continue speaking my truth while knowing that doing so brings me closer to my best life.
I now expect that when we are ready and open, the Universe will send us the messages, teachers, and opportunities we need. I can clearly see how this has been going on for my whole life, but I only recently chose to notice and believe it.
Just this morning, I realized that I have wanted to learn to play guitar my whole life, and I now live in a house with thirty guitars (they belong to my partner, and he has invited me to use them). It is as if the Universe has given me every opportunity to learn, but I haven’t taken it. You ask, and the Universe delivers. You still have to participate, though. The Universe can send you thirty guitars, but if you don’t have the self-worth to know that your interests deserve exploration and the confidence to be a beginner, you will never pick one up.
I think everything in my physical world represents something in the spirit world. I don’t believe we manifest everything that happens to us because we are only co-creators, and sometimes the Universe has very different plans for our lives. We can, however, consciously decide what we focus on, what we move toward, and what we believe.
Looking back over the past five years, I can see that I have manifested abundance in many areas of my life. I focused on and brought into my life the exact things that I wanted and thought I deserved. My goals were to write more and have more time to explore my interests. I now write every day, and I still spend quality time with my kids. I meditate, live near the beach, and feel much happier and more peaceful (most of the time.) I have cultivated the habit of doing the things that are important to me daily. I am now adding guitar lessons twice a week!
Remain open over the next couple of weeks, and try to recognize the synchronicities in your life.
Live Your Magical Life 😊
