How a timely phone message prompted a calling to create
THE SYNC BLOG
Today I had an epiphany!
That’s what happens for me when synchronicity strikes.
I’d been out in my garden after a long and arduous marathon session on the computer – writing, producing shows, answering emails…the usual daily duties.
Eyes tired, mentally drained, and longing for a ray of sun (rare it seems these days) to kiss my face and touch my soul.
So, I answered the call and treated myself to a few moments of solitude and contemplation outdoors.
And then hit hit me!
“I’ll create a synchronicity blog!
Here’s what prompted it…
Early in the morning I’d been thinking of a friend. Actually, her mother, who’d just celebrated her 85th birthday a few weeks previous. We’d been invited to attend the birthday celebration, and unfortunately we couldn’t attend due to a previous commitment.
As I was readying myself for the day, my friend and her mom popped into my mind, seemingly out of nowhere. As my mind wandered; thinking about the fact that I knew I needed to call in to wish a belated happy birthday to my friend’s mother, I resolved to phone her at some point in the day and make good on my mental promise.
As I’m relaxing in the afternoon sun, I return to see a voicemail. That friend (and her mother) whom had been on my mind only hours before had decided to phone me. “We haven’t connected for a while,” she said. “Just thought I’d check in.”
We’ve all heard of these classic cases of synchronicity. The occasional thinking of a friend and the friend calls. This is what philosopher Terence McKenna called “a curious juxtaposition of a psychic event [that] gives the impression that psyche and world are somehow contiguous with each other.”
Though synchronicity has been a phenomenon ubiquitous within the human experience probably since time immemorial, I am completely convinced that cases of synchronicity are on the rise! I’m hearing it from all corners of the globe, all ages, all cultures and backgrounds. And as I am particularly curious as to why this uptick is in play at this time, I am equally curious about your stories of synchronicity. I want to know if they’ve increased for you and what role they’ve played in your life.
That’s what this brand new synchronicity blog is all about!
Sure, I will be documenting my own upward trajectory on the synchronous journey, but I definitely want to hear about yours! So this isn’t just my blog, it’s yours too!
Bring on the stories – those little winks and nods from the universe I know we all have.
And as much as we always love to hear those classic syncs about how you heard from your friend whom you haven’t seen or heard from in years and then they reached out, I know there are some really deep and profound stories that I bet you’d love to share. Whether whimsical or weighty, nothing is off limits, so don’t be shy. Share your stories with us. Simply add your syncs in the comments section below each post. In the meantime, we’ll also be working on ways in which you can post your own sync stories on our website.
As for the blog itself and musings about my own synchronistic journey, I’ll only be posting when the sync occurs. But I have a funny feeling that just by virtue of creating this brand new sync portal, I’ll be priming the pump for more synchronicity to pour forth!
So welcome everyone to the official Higher Journeys Sync Blog. We hope you enjoy your stay here!
