This video gives an intro to synchronicities.
In this introduction to synchronicity we explore the following: One of the most common ways to dismiss an idea, is to say “it’s just a coincidence.” But how do we know if something really IS a coincidence? We explore the question of coincidence, synchronicity, and numerology in this video.
This is something even scientists have struggled with. We can see this in the example of geologist Alfred Wegener’s theory of continental drift. We also see it in the real life story of Paul and Esther Grachan. These examples tell us that we should b skeptical whenever so-called experts dismiss something as ‘just a coincidence.” In the words of Nobel Prize winning physicist, Percy Williams Bridgman: “coincidence is what you have left over after you’ve applied a bad theory.”
Gregg Levoy once said: “When you’re on the right path, the universe winks and nods at you from time to time, just to let you know. And once you start noticing these little cosmic clues. Once you understand that you’re on a path at all, you’ll begin to see them everywhere.’
These clues are what Swiss Psychologist Carl Jung called “Synchronicity.” In 1952, Jung published a paper explaining that, in the same way that we can connect events by cause and effect, we can also connect them with meaning. Synchronicity happens when there’s a meaningful coincidence. Jung believed that life is not a series of random events, but rather an expression of a deeper order, which he called “Unus mundus.” In fact, Jung’s concept of Unus Mundus bears a striking similarity to Pythagoras’ idea that everything in the universe is connected by a fundamental mathematical structure. In a much broader sense, our whole universe can be thought of as an almost impossible coincidence. Many scientists have pointed out that the physicals laws we see all around us, seem to be perfectly arranged, in just the right way, in order to support life as we know it. An idea known as the “fine tuned universe.”
And if we go even deeper, we find another type of synchronicity that shows up in relation to numbers. According to Numerology, when you see numbers that keep appearing in your life over and over again, in different situations, and in different ways, it’s not an accident. It’s happening for a reason.
