Right now I’m reading a book called The 7 Secrets of Synchronicity. I’ve always been one to pay attention to how the outer world surprisingly mirrors the inner world, but reading this book is really magnifying my awareness of synchronistic events.
Last night I opened the book and there was a sketch of a dandelion. I didn’t think too much of it because I’m aware that the dandelion is a powerful symbol in our collective consciousness right now. But this morning when I came into my office to meditate I noticed – as if for the first time – that the image on my calendar for July is a dandelion. I thought to myself, “Okay, this symbol applies to me right now,” which makes sense because I’m going through some significant changes. To me, the dandelion – in the form above – represents new life due to the beautiful way the seeds are dispersed after the flower dies.
I briefly looked at my bookshelf and around my office to see if I could spot any more dandelions, and then moved on to my morning meditation. Afterward, I checked my email and noticed an unread message that I had received from my sister yesterday. When I clicked on the link contained in the email the above image of a dandelion popped up. Beautiful.
Synchronicity is subjective. Only you recognize when it’s intended for you, and only you can interpret the meanings contained in the various symbols. Of course, there are symbols that have collective meaning as well, which often applies, but the final interpretation is whatever makes sense to you.
For me, these seemingly random events – which are anything but random - help me know that the unseen world is vast and supportive as we move through this sometimes confusing maze called life.I hope your day is full of “The peace which passeth understanding,” and that synchronicities pop up everywhere, whispering that you’re on the right track.Share on Facebook
