Meaningful coincidence between the inner world of our thoughts and the outer world of matter suggested to Carl Jung that these two worlds were not as clearly separated as we think.
When we begin to realize that there are other possibilities, and that other realities and experiences of consciousness are possible, it positively activates our own unused potential. Once we accept the possibility, we open not only our mind, we ignite the potential within and we begin to experience these things rather than just reading about them.
The laws of physics maintain that the observer affects the experiment. By being watched, there is a response. It is this same law that operates in synchronicity, coincidence and meaning. If we are watching for it, it will respond. There is no such thing as coincidence. Nothing happens by chance. Life is in a constant process of communication with us. Only most people are too busy to notice.
Synchronicity is real, it is a phenomenon that not only everyone has had, it also feels the same for everyone.
Jung described synchronicity as an ‘acausal connecting principle’, he also maintained that synchronicity is more likely to occur when we are in a highly charged state of emotional and mental awareness, when, in his words; “the archetypes, universal images or themes underlying human behavior, are activated.”
Synchronistic journaler and biologist, Paul Kammerer, in 1919 introduced ‘”The Law of Seriality” which suggested that clusters of coincidence were like ripples on the surface of a pond, the only ‘observable’ evidence of a general connecting principle of nature. He also compared this force of ‘connectedness to the force of gravity, indicating that it is a law of nature. We are to watch for synchronicity in our life because once the first one takes place we can be sure another will follow as sure as an apple will fall to the ground.
Simply put, gravity works with objects of mass, synchronicity works with both matter and consciousness, bringing them together because they are alike.
Affinity is the attraction of matter to what the mind is thinking. Gravity only works with matter and only pulls objects to the earth. Affinity pulls things to mind and mind to things. It is a law. The law reveals that synchronicity affects both matter and consciousness through affinity. They must be alike, that is the ‘pull.’
Like thoughts attract like thoughts, similar to magnetic and gravitational forces. Thoughts are powerful because their origin is in creativity, which is the mode of God.
Metaphysicians have always maintained that the authoritative source of this influence, impact and power that thought has, is our spiritual right. The time is coming when we will be able to fully explore our spiritual nature once again and when the connected ‘collective unconscious’ is awakened; it will surpass all of these hopes.
