When events appear to fit together perfectly in our lives, it may seem at first that they are random occurrences that result from coincidence. These synchronous happenings, though, are much more than that, for if we look at them more closely, they can show us that the universe is listening to us and gently communicating with us. Learning to pay attention to and link the things that occur daily can be a way for us to become more attuned to the fact that most everything happens for a reason — even when that reason is unclear.
When we realize that things often go more smoothly than we can ever imagine, it allows us to take the time to reflect on the patterns in our lives. Even events that might not initially seem to be related to each other are indicators that the universe is working with, not against, us. This idea of synchronicity means that we have to trust there is more to our lives than what we experience on a physical level. We need to be willing to look more closely at the bigger picture, accepting and having confidence that there is more to our experiences than immediately meets the eye. Being open to synchronicity also means that we must understand that our lives are filled with positive and negative events. Once we can recognize that one event is neither more desirable nor better than the other — they all have an overall purpose in our lives — then we are truly ready to listen to the messages the universe gives us.
While we may not be able to see everything in our lives as being synchronous, we can certainly use hindsight to be more aware of how the universe guides us. This sense of wonder at the mysteries of the universe and the interconnectedness present in our lives will help us see our overall ways of being and will, in turn, make it easier to work more consciously toward our spiritual evolution.
