The Synchronicity of Success

I love the idea of synchronicity.

Perhaps it's just part of my need for validation that the universe is orderly and consistent. It's empowering to think that every person, every animal, every plant, every particle of matter... it's all working in grand unison.

It's nice to know that among the 6 billion people on this planet I am no less important than the next soul. Whether they be enthroned or imprisoned, Christian or Muslim, perfumed or soiled, I have equal consideration in the universal mind. I am not only connected to my fellow human beings, I have a connection with the all of everything.

"Wow," you say. "Synchronicity can do all that?"

"By the way, what the heck is it? And do I have to read L. Ron Hubbard to get it?"

Generally speaking, synchronicity can be explained as the appearance of seemingly coincidental events in our lives that go beyond mere chance. By recognizing and acting upon the appearance of these coincidences, a person can create a favorable outcome from any situation or goal. The psychiatrist Carl Jung maintained that an individual's connection to a collective unconscious was the unifying force in this process.

The process works whether you are seeking more success, more prosperity, more happiness, or geared to a more ordinary pursuit, such as finding a new dragonfly for your dragonfly collection.

The trick is to pay attention to the coincidences and act on the opportunities they present. It's quite easy to miss the signs if you're not tuned into the possibility.

How can you tune into synchronicity and let it work for you?

A good starting point is to recognize that physical matter of the universe does not exist in a void. We are living in a universe of interlaced, dynamic energy. It is this energy that animates matter into coordinated, attention-driven synchronicity.

Consider your thoughts. Any time you have a thought you are creating a focus of energy that goes out into the universe, intermingling and interacting with other energy processes. Because like energy is attracted to like energy, your intent directs synchronous energy in your direction.

Think about that! Your thoughts are not contained within the confines of your skull. Rather they are not unlike both a transmitter and receiver. By broadcasting your intent to the universe you are drawing all the energies which will further amplify and create your intent.

Could this explain why some people create lives of abundance and success, while others lament about the crappy hand life has dealt them?

You are what you think. Or, more accurately, you are what you believe yourself to be.

By accepting as fact your belief of who you truly are or what you will unfailingly achieve, then your future self effectively defines your present self. Successful people are successful before they become successful.

This happens instantly in the moment you define and announce your focused, unwavering intent. Success is automatic. And synchronicity plays a key role in obtaining your success.

Let me give you a startling example of how synchronicity unexpectedly paid me a visit. You may find my story hard to believe, or attributable to pure chance, but it is absolutely true. It is a simple account of events with a simple outcome, yet it speaks volumes about the shortest and surest path to success.

On a cold November night last year there was a house fire a few blocks from where I live. Tragically, a thirteen-year-old girl perished in the flames, unable to escape her room on the second story. In small towns such as mine tragedies like this cut deeply into the whole community.

Details of the attempted rescue of the girl further exacerbated a profound and overwhelming sadness in everyone. Naturally, the whole community wondered how this could happen, why it happened, and how to prevent another tragedy such as this from happening again.

It quickly came to light that the smoke alarms in the ill-fated home were not working. Because my own thirteen-year-old son's room is on the second floor of our home, my first reaction was to check the smoke alarms. Sure enough, the one upstairs had a dead battery. And wouldn't you know it, no batteries in the cabinet.

My overriding thought was to get a battery, get it today, and get it before the stores close. Hopefully, the battery supply in town wasn't depleted.

Out the door I go, determined to have a battery before nightfall. As I'm walking around the rear of my vehicle something in the street catches my eye. I walk over for a closer inspection...

Yikes!

A chill goes up my spine and my skin crawls up tighter than William Shatner's fifth face lift.

It's a 9-volt battery! It looks brand spanking new!

Now, I'm not saying the Lord sent a Battery Angel to drop this gift at my feet. I've no doubt that battery arrived by way of very ordinary, everyday means.

But I am saying that my most urgent thought was to get batteries. I am saying that many in my community had the same thought. I am saying that I needed a battery and, coincidentally, I got one.

Perhaps we can call it dumb luck. The same dumb luck that created a star out of Paris Hilton.

Now here's the kicker. I did go to the store to replenish my battery supply and pick up a few other items. Guess what?

No batteries in stock.
