A synchronicity occurs when one of life’s little meaningful coincidences that are placed in your path. I remember once I needed to find someone to come and repair a few shingles on my roof. I had no idea who to call. While driving I had to stop at an intersection and stopped just to my right was a truck with an advertising magnet on the side with the name and phone number of an independent contractor who did roof repair. I just smiled, grabbed my phone and stored the number, grateful that what I needed was placed in my path. When we are aware enough to see them, we see our lives are filled with meaningful coincidences, or synchronicity, we have created in the spiritual realm to manifest in the physical.
A synchronicity is created when people, places or events are brought into our lives to help us evolve. A synchronicity can highlight something going on in your life where you may need assistance. And I needed help with my roof and I trusted that they Universe people put the right person in my path at the right time. He fixed the roof for a reasonable rate and I have never had a problem with it. Was he a soulmate? No. He was just placed in my path at the right time to take care of a need I had expressed to the Universe and the delivered.
There are times though when someone could confuse a synchronicity or as a soulmate relationship. For example, lets say you meet someone who really touches your soul. You have a lot in common, like the same music and have some other things unique to your relationship. This person is in and out of your life like one giant boomerang. There is no contact for a year or so, then BAM! you cross paths again at Starbucks, the grocery store, the local flea market, or wherever.
This person seems to keep coming back into your life over and over again. You being to feel a destiny with them, of course you would, because they keep coming back like a bad weed in the garden. But is this a soulmate relationship? Or just one synchronicity after another to keep you stuck on the karma wheel? More than likely it is just a string of meetings brought together by synchronicity. Your paths keep crossing because you do have something to resolve with this person who keeps disappearing from your life. Do you let them cross your boundaries when they reappear in your life? Are you so happy to see them you ignore the fact they disappeared numerous times without reason, explanation or closure? If so, perhaps it is time to shut the roller coaster down. Perhaps the reason they keep reappearing is because you have allowed them but the lesson is to shut the door once and for all so you can grow and evolve in a new direction and make yourself truly available for a soulmate relationship to enter your life.
For example – you meet someone who interests you and touches your soul. Through synchronicity – that person seems to come into your life over and over again. You begin to feel a destiny with that person. You begin to think with your heart instead of your head as you imagine a connection to them because you keep crossing paths. You connect with that person on some level, certainly, but not at the soulmate level, even though there is karma there. There is a karmic lesson to be realized certainly but not one that will involve your heart, mind and soul to the depth a soulmate life lesson will.
In some cases the karma between the two people is positive – but in many cases you have attracted that person into your life for a learning lesson whether you are aware of it or not. You may not have a soulmate contract or soulmate agreement with that person, and therefore not officially soulmates, but you have them in your life for a reason.
