What Is Synchronicity: Meaning, Theory And Examples


Synchronicity In Numbers

A very good friend of mine always points out when she notices 11:11 on a clock. “Make a wish, she says.”

To be honest, I’ve never really understood why this seems so significant aside from the obvious repetition.

But upon further inspection, boy, this is a loaded topic. There are answers in Numerology and the bible, and many believe that any number of patterns you see will have personal meaning to you.

One thing we can take away from this topic is that since ancient times, people have believed that repeating number patterns are God’s way of communicating with us.

Now, back to the infamous 1111.

A. Biblical meaning —

Those who believe 1111 has biblical meaning believe that the number signals a transition or wake-up call from God. To be honest, I’ve tried to find the 1111 connection in the bible and I’m coming up short. This isn’t to say I think anyone is wrong, but I just want to be clear about what I’m relaying. And I couldn’t find a logical reason for this connection. If you know what it is, please comment below!

B. Numerology meaning —

Numerology is based on the belief that angels, spirits, or other divine beings communicate with us through numbers. And each number has a meaning. The number 1 in numerology relates to independence and self-determination. When it’s repeated in this sequence, those qualities are magnified 4-fold.

If you start seeing number patterns that appear more often than could be a coincidence, it’s a good bet that those numbers have meaning. During this time, remember that thoughts become things, so keep your thoughts positive. You’re likely coming up on a transition.

Real Life Examples Of Synchronicity

Now for the moment, I’ve been waiting to share…

I have a few examples of synchronicity in my life that I think are not-so-coincidental. I’m going to share them here, and you can let me know what you think.

A. Divine Intervention

In one particular interaction with someone, I felt as though someone was screaming at me to pay attention (there was no voice, but that’s the best way I can explain it). I didn’t know why at the time, but there was a definite power at the moment. As it turns out, this moment was instrumental in me figuring out that years of what I thought to be drama was actually a very specific type of emotional abuse.

After realizing it, I explained this moment to someone as divine intervention.” A few days later, a stranger approached me at Starbucks and struck up a short conversation about luck. The last thing she said was, “I don’t know, I like to believe there’s such a thing as divine intervention.”

Could it have been a coincidence? Sure. Do I think it was? Abso-freaking-lutely not.

B. Book of Secrets

When I began my spiritual awakening, I was naturally looking for answers. I realized I needed guidance, so I went on a hunt for an audiobook. Turns out, I had a few Deepak Chopra books in my library and I seemed drawn to one in particular. Partway through the first chapter, I realized I didn’t even look at the book title. As you might have guessed, it was the Book of Secrets.

A few days earlier, as my head was reeling from new discoveries and shedding old beliefs, I had picked up one of my daughter’s books that were sitting on the floor. I held it in my hands for a minute just looking at the cover. It seemed meaningful to me, but again, I had no idea why.

So when I saw the title of the audiobook I was listening to, I jumped up and grabbed my daughter’s book. You already know what it was titled, the Book of Secrets.

Could this have been my subconscious mind making a connection and drawing me towards Deepak Chopra’s book? Certainly. Do I think the subconscious mind plays a large role in spirituality? Most definitely.

On this journey, she learned and healed more than she could have possibly imagined. It left her thankful for the experience and compelled her to start conversations about identifying emotional abuse, spiritual growth that can occur as a result, and healing from it all, by shifting the focus within.View Author posts
