I've been hearing a lot lately about this word: Synchronicity. I first began hearing about it in Julia Cameron's book, "The Artist's Way" and then of course further it has been discussed in The Artist's Way class I am taking. Each week we check in with each other and discuss our moments of synchronicity, what we learned in the past week and some of our small or big creative successes. I have also begun to hear some of my friends mention this same topic of "synchronicity" and all at once I started to think that I may or may not truly understand the concept at all!
So, I looked it up. It appears that the term was coined by Carl Jung and can be defined as:
"... an apparently meaningful coincidence in time of two or more similar or identical events that are causally unrelated..."
I guess sometimes synchronicity can be eye-opening, opportunity giving or simply encouraging. Such as needing something in a moment and it comes your way in an unexpected manner. An interesting concept to explore. Perhaps, just taking note of such things as your needs and your desires for opportunities and keeping your eyes open, becoming aware to what is really going on, causes synchronicity itself to occur. If we are not aware, we cannot experience these moments.
Anyhow, I was on my way back from a short "maintenance run" today and checked the mailbox on the way home. In it I received a card from an address I did not know and I open it up to find a beautiful note from a friend I have not spoken to or seen in years! It turns out she has been training for marathons and pursuing her own creative endeavors and had heard recently from her sister that I had been doing the same! Super encouraging moment of synchronicity. Definitely feeling like (at least sometimes) the road may actually rise to meet you.
