Jung at Heart

During a dream, a deep meditation or even an unexpected moment’s thought, your mind centers on someone you
haven’t spoke to or seen or even thought about for a long duration, then— within a short period of time, that person suddenly calls or texts you! The laws of chance permit this to happen from time to time, but it’s merely a fantastic and poignant coincidence, right? Some would disagree.

Carl Jung called such occurrences synchronicity. The revered Swiss psychologist considered coincidences to be “meaningful”, counterintuitive to their generally accepted interpretations.

Perhaps there is more to learn from studying the mind’s role in perceiving familiar occurrences for positivity than from refuting or proving the chances of their possibilities.

The ability to recognize positive similarities in life, Jung theorized, could motivate one to heal or succeed with heightened sensitivity. An “ever-present reality for those who have eyes to see.”

How will you know when you’ve stumbled upon synchronicity? That’s hard to say, as it’s all seemingly dependent on your individual awareness. Is it a “meaningful coincidence of two or more events where something other than the probability of chance is involved?”

It certainly gives one something to ‘sync’ about.
