    Default Synchronicity

    Thought I would post before I go work out and hunker down for South Louisiana's coldest blast, continuously, since I can remember. Single digits with the wind chill and more snow. Unbelievable.

    My Aunt Honey passed away and we had her memorial service last Wednesday. The next day her brother, my Dad, and her son-in-law went to the race track in New Orleans.

    My aunt's given name was Lois.

    In the first race they had a horse named "Aunt Lois". Naturally my father and cousin's husband bet on that horse.

    She came in dead last.

    My Aunt Honey always did have a sense of humor.

    My favorite synchronicity story: it was discussed for quite a few days on the British media about 15 years ago, in the days before everyone had a cellphone.

    A man was walking down the street, and was just passing by a public phone box. Suddenly, it started ringing.

    Bemused, he figured he should stop and answer it.

    It was his own wife, who'd dialed completely the wrong number trying to find him.

    Just within the last few days I decided to start reading up on America's founding fathers. I chose a documentary called The Hidden Faith of Our Founding Fathers as a starting point. It explores the anti-Christian words and actions of Paine, Adams, Jefferson, Franklin and Washington as well as their involvement in the Freemasons and other secret societies.

    I try to share what I learn with my 77 year-old mother, who lives in Connecticut. She's open-minded but tends to jump into debunk mode when I show her info that opposes her beliefs. We debate and have fun with it, so all is good.

    Over a span of three days (that's how long it took me to watch this 3 hr documentary), I would email her findings from the film, and she would send me a debunking response. She did not want to believe that the Freemasons and the Founding Fathers were anti-Christian.

    On the third morning, when I was ready to back away and not send her anything more, she emails me images of a big article published that morning in her local paper. It was on the history of the Freemasons in her area, Waterbury.

    The synchronicity caught her attention. In her email to me, she said, "A coincidence?" I told her, "No, Mom. There are no coincidences."

    And now she is bombarding me with articles about the Freemasons, Illuminati and the Jesuits.

    In the late 90's I went to an alternative Spanish resort to do some Gestalt-ish group therapy. The place was a sort of retreat resort for arts, crafts typically introspective, and some therapy. There were four of us in the group not including the therapist. None of us knew each other before this.

    A week after it ended I was walking through Covent Garden, London and I saw one of the people from the holiday retreat group. We were both surprised at the chance meeting since neither of us lived in London. After this a week later at London Waterloo train station as I was going down the escalators I met another from the group coming the other way. Turns out she was on her way to see the other final member. I don't bump into people I know in London very often. I can remember one or two times beyond this case in my 45 years. Add into this the close timing of the first chance meeting and the synchronicity of meeting another on her way to meet another ..the coincidence is baffling.

    Some of the timing is staggered by a week but still it has always struck me as strange synchronicity. The group therapy with those three was profound and somewhat enlightening. The whole week at the retreat I had vivid dreams.

    One bit of the therapy at the very end involved going on a mental journey and getting a gift from a wise one. Feels like it might be relevant. But I have no idea. It's the strongest memory I have of the week

    ***POST UPDATE***
    Just to clarify the gifts we got from our respective wise ones were known to us at the time, for example I got a bottle of courage (attribute not the stout). It wasn't like the gift was an unknown future surprise. I think the way I wrote it might have implied that

    That's a great story bill.

    how do you view that, as a totally wild fluke? (Trillions to 1 odds)
    OR
    Something like a possible connection to a higher ability, his wife going into higher self without realising?

    Wonderful story, YoYoYo!! If we stop to think about our lives I'm sure we can all remember many happenings, that when we look back on them, didn't really just "happen"! There was some purpose & "someone" guiding things from above!

    I can't remember if I've posted this here before, but this happened about 20 or so years ago.

    My dad was the manager of the Royal York Hotel on the Isle of Wight at the time.

    One day he received a phone call from his friend in London. He said "I know this sounds strange but could you please just check room number 135 for me as quick as you can, there might be a lady who needs your help"

    So he rushed up to room 135 and knocked on the door, there was no answer so he unlocked the door and went in. On the floor was an old lady laying unconscious. So he rang for an ambulance, the paramedics managed to revive her a took her off to hospital. She'd had a heart attack.

    My dad then rang his friend back in London, to find out how he knew about it. He said that he was in his office at work when his phone rang, on the other end of the line was a lady who said she needed help urgently and was at room 135 York hotel, the phone then went dead. The only York hotel he could think of was the Royal York Hotel so not knowing what else to do he rang my dad.

    They where both completely blown away with the situation as to get an outside call from the rooms phone she would have to have known the correct code to bypass the reception, and the place where my dads friend worked she would have not only got the works number, but also the extension to get direct to his office!!

    Anyway when the lady was well enough for visitors at the hospital, my dad paid her a visit.

    When he asked her how she knew what to do, she just replied I just pressed the buttons on the phone randomly until she got an answer, but knew she would get help from somewhere.

    Amazing story, and if it wasn't 100% true i wouldn't believe it!


    Love and Truth,

    Those stories are amazing and remind me of how magical and ordered the universe really is. I'm sure the people on Avalon have more than the average of these. I know I do. I could go on and on.

    After I lost my son, I went to Fort Meyers, Florida to take a break. I got there through the most amazing set of synchronicities and divine guidance I have ever seen. However, I'll stick to one part.

    I was laying awake, outside, crying and asked my son to send a shooting star if he was okay. I couldn't believe my eyes when a blue shooting star appeared and arced high across the night sky.

    The next morning I walked out to the beach and said "I wish I would find a sand dollar." When I got to the water's edge, there on the edge of the surf were three perfect sand dollars. I still have one of them.

    Several years ago I had a whim to buy a crystal point and had been browsing both Amazon and Ebay but never reached a decision to buy.
    The very next morning walking my youngest to school a glint drew my eye on the pavement and I looked down to see a crystal point about 1.75" long. It felt like the universe just stopped for a second.
    To this day it lies on the unit next to my bed less than 12" from my pillow.

    Once when I was on Uni holidays, I went with a friend, cross country skiing and snow camping for 2 weeks. We went in the snow, to the top of the highest mountain in Australia. As it was snow covered and a white out, it was off limits to the general public, they simply could not get up there. When we got to the summit, there were another 5 people up there. Two were my next door neighbors and the other 3 I had slept side by side with on an expedition into the Queensland rainforests over a thousand miles away several years before. Neither group already there, knew each other. It was like a reunion.

    When I was living in the U.K., in Scotland and a friend was living in London, she asked if we could meet in Spain as we discovered out holidays there overlapped. As she was staying in a different village, and we only overlapped by a day, I thought it would be just too difficult. As soon as we got off the plane and took the bus into the village, we found a place to stay and went down to the beach for a cool drink and a walk. We were only on the beach (me and my boyfriend) for 5 minutes and we bumped into her, also walking on the beach.

    I saw a ufo on Saturday night. It went over the center of town and changed direction by 90 degrees after I noticed it. It was very bright and red. I tried to ring my friend to tell her but could not get through. I rang her the next day. I said that I had had a major ufo sighting the night before. She said that she had too. She was inside when her nephew called her out of her house to look over at the town center where they could see a red ufo. She then went back in and talked to her nephew about it. As yet, no one reported any sightings.

    Dad always loved doing a random weekly Favourite Numbers Coupon which is a bit like lotto but with horses and jockeys instead. During Dad’s final days [terminal cancer] he had a preoccupation with the time and what day it was.

    There were quite a few noticeable number 5 synchronicities around his last week including him repeatedly asking several of us if it was 5 o’clock yet. One day he asked if we could put a clock on the wall in front of his bed.

    The next day we put a clock on his wall and later that afternoon when the clock showed 5 o’clock he took his last breath. It was the 8th day of the month. He was born on the 8th day of the month.

    Because of these synchronicities we decided to check the Races to place a $5 bet in Dad’s memory on something 5-ish.

    We were stunned to not only find a Race starting at 5:05pm but that horse number 5 in that race was called FINAL SALUTE and it was jumping from Barrier 8. The jockey also happened to be one of Dad’s Favourite Numbers jockeys.

    We listened to the race on the radio and were emotionally touched to hear the race commentator say in the last 5 seconds, “. . . but FINAL SALUTE is just too good for ‘em”. I would’ve sworn that he was riding the horse with a huge grin on his face

    I love these fascinating stories, thanks all for posting them. Ewan your description of 'the universe stopping' is perfectly apt. I felt exactly that when this impossible coincidence happened to me:

    The carpark at work is pretty large. But as a creature of habit, I parked each day in almost the same spot – at the far end of one particular rank. There it would sit, my silver Audi A4, day after day for the five years I had it.

    In the summer of 2009 I sold it to a used car dealer approximately 20 miles away, and exchanged it for a newer model.

    Then about 6 months later, I pull into the carpark at work and head for my usual spot. As I drive round the corner, I see nearly the entire rank is occupied. In the end spot, where I normally park...my heart skips. I see a silver Audi A4. I look once, twice. Because to my amazement, with a dash horror, the registration number IS THE SAME as the car I sold 6 months previous. WTF is going on?! The universe stopped.

    I later found out that a new employee started that day. He parked his car in my spot – an Audi A4 he'd bought a few months ago. The very same that I sold. Even funnier, when I starting talking to him about his car, he asked me if I wanted to buy it off him!!

    Now the odds of this happening are very, very slim. If I worked and lived in a small community, there's a chance you might see a car you previously owned driving down the road one day. But I sold that Audi to a dealership on the other side of a large city, population approx. 500,000. Add to that all the surrounding towns and villages it's ~750,000 metro. Not a small community. The chances therefore of seeing your old car anywhere around is pretty small. The chances of it turning up in the hands of new owner in the same place you work, smaller still. And then sitting in the very same spot you parked it in for 5 years...wow. To this day, that coincidence (there are none) still gives me goosebumps.

    When a meaningful coincidence happens, against impossible odds, there HAS to be some other factor operating.

    It seems to me that this absolutely supports the idea that consciousness is senior to 'hard physical reality' — at least some of the time.

    And, potentially — this is the exciting part, that these little signs all point to — ALL of the time.

    I've seen so many of these co-incidences that it's so clear to me now that we're living in a realm pure magic. I'll give a few examples to start with that illustrates...

    A few years ago I was realizing that our thoughts create 'reality' and I was experimenting with visualizing different things that came to mind. This particular time envisioned 3 unrelated items i thought would be fun to find very cheap at a thrift shop. A few days later i was with a friend and we decided to go browse through a thrift store briefly. As i took 2 steps into the store i glanced to my right to see all 3 items sitting next to each other on the same small shelf in a multi-level display rack!

    Another time i was with a different friend hiking around looking for edible mushrooms in the wild. I had the thought that there could be a variety of mushroom that we never saw before because it was well camouflaged...about 1 to 2 seconds later i looked down to see a strange-looking black 'blob' which turned out to be one of the most bizarre mushrooms we'd never seen before. It looked like a small black pile of dung from the top...what a perfect disguise. (Image attached) ...We searched around that area a little and found around 100 more of these little morsels I researched it later and found that they were also quite edible.

    I'd say we're all players in our own game. And part of the game is to wake up within the game.

    Yep! It has been so weird for me to "wake up" at the latter end of my life & look back on all that has happened! As long as one remains in a "brainwashed" type of mentality, there seems to be no hope of ever "waking up". I can only speak from my own experiences & the observations of those around me.

    Here are two of mine. On reflection the odds must be pretty astronomical as to justify that there must some 'hidden hand' at work or the world is much smaller than I think it is.

    One was during the summer of 1999 when I was on industrial placement when doing my PhD in the Harlow, Essex area of the UK, a 200 mile, 3-4 hour drive away from my normal residence. Some colleagues and I travelled by car to the centre of 'new' Harlow, a stupefyingly unattractive concrete jungle. It was while walking through the shopping area I came across a former college friend "just doing a bit of work".

    Another was when I'd finished working as a contractor in the Chippenham, Wiltshire area in April 2015. Soon afterwards discovered that a former manager of mine at a software company I used to work for based in Penicuick, Scotland - 400 + miles away, and whom I had last seen some 8 years ago, had started work the following Monday at the very same Chippenham-based company. Incredible!

    Happyyuk,

    "stupefying unattractive concrete jungle"

    What a hilarious, brilliant summation.

    And the synchroncity was awesome too. I love these. It reminds us of a bigger picture.
