Synchronicities are defined as the simultaneous occurrence of events which appear significantly related but have no discernible causal connection. There is scientific thought that we live in a multi-dimensional universe, where we are connected to one another and our mind is the commander in chief of all we experience. My research revealed the importance of paying attention to synchronicites that surface in your life as these can be significant to experiences you are having. I have always had a keen interest in “so called coincidences” and synchronicities. In the following post, I have taken the liberty to use direct quotes from the book The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot.
To quote from page 3 in the introduction of THE HOLOGRAPHIC UNIVERSE, David Peat in his book entitled “Synchronicity: The Bridge Between Matter and Mind”, asserted that coincidences that are so unusual and so psychologically meaningful they don’t seem to be the result of chance alone, can be explained by the holographic model. Peat believes such coincidences are actually “flaws in the fabric of reality.” Synchronicities reveal that our thought processes are much more intimately connected to the physical world than has been hitherto suspected .
Carl Jung encountered many meaningful coincidences in his work. He noticed that synchronicities almost always accompanied periods of emotional intensity and transformation: fundamental changes in belief, sudden and new insights, deaths, births, even changes in profession. Jung also noticed that they tended to peak when the new realization of insight was just about to surface in a patient’s consciousness. page 78
Other therapists also have reported experiences with synchronicity. According to Bohm the apparent separateness of consciousness and matter is an illusion which occurs only after both have unfolded into the explicate world of objects and sequential time. page 79
Peat believes that synchronicities are therefore “flaws” in the fabric of reality, momentary fissures that allow us brief glimples of the immense and unitary order underlying all of nature. Peat believes the extent we have fragmented ourselves from the field of consciousness is a basic cause for the relative scarcity of our synchronous experiences. Peat is convinced that when we experience a synchronicity, what we are really experiencing is the human mind experiencing for a moment in its true orders of increasing subtlety reaching past the sourcer of mind and matter into creativity itself. page 79
Physicist Tiller believes the reason illnesses often recur is that medicine currently treats only at the physical level. He feels that if doctors could treat the energy field as well, they would bring about longer laster cures. Tiller suggests that each of us are a universe in miniature. In the subtle energetic levels of reality itself synchronicities may be explained. Our thoughts are constantly affecting subtle energetic levels of the holographic universe. It is interesting that there is evidence that only emotionally powerful thoughts are potent enough to manifest a series of coincidences in physical reality. page 189
The majority of the above information involves direct quotes from the book, The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot. This is the current book we are studying with Quantum Leap Book Club .
Synchronicities are of great interest to me. The information shared in this book reveal possible explanations as well as the value of increasing our experience with synchronicities. The information I have included has allowed me to recognize the importance of connecting with the unitary experiences of our lives and to move from the fragmented existence we have created in our world. I believe we can contribute to the experience of interconnectedness by contemplating information similar to what I have shared in this post.
