My first blog...What is Synchronicity?

Synchronicity. What is it?

So I was at the Law of Attraction event by Patti. You come across some people and they radiate positive energy...absolute positive energy. Patti is one amongst them.

While discussing the ideas on life, law of attraction, and more - a term "synchronicity" was thrown out by a good looking woman. Obviously, I was intrigued by the word AND the woman...more by the word then the woman ;-). So, I ask "What is synchronicity?"....a great city to travel? :D

Her answer in my interpretation: It is something where small events in life...connect the dots...and tell you that you are on the right path. These events may look coincidental (may be eccentric to a few), only they are not. They are God's or 'whatever supreme power you believe in's way of confirmation.

One of the examples she gave was: when she was on the road, talking to her cousin, a car cut her off. She said "What the f..., this car just cut me off." And her cousin said: "Yah, the drivers in Minnesota are bad too. They drive like they are on the race track". And 'coincidentally' she noticed that the tag on the car was from Minnesota and she was passing Race Track gas station.

This was a confirmation of she was where she was supposed to be...

And you only notice these things if you are really awake. Awake not like woken-up-from-your-sleep awake but more on the spiritual level. It's all about being in the moment.

It's amazing the kind of things you would notice when you really are in the moment and not worrying about the bills to be paid, the dinner to be cooked or the lawn to be mowed. Just be in 'this' moment.

One of the most influential movies I have ever seen is "Peaceful Warrior". A M A Z I N G movie. A must see. (Alright Dan, you owe me around 80,970$s now ;-)). No seriously, go and watch it. Choose that over the mind numbing "A+" rated horror movie that you have in mind. You will thank me. Or may be Dan Millman. Although, I think I am a slightly better guy than he is ;-)

The defining moment of that movie (to me) is when Dan and Socrates talk:

Socrates: Where are you?
Dan: Here.
Socrates: What time is it?
Dan: Now.
Socrates: What are you?
Dan: This Moment!

B E A U T I F U L!

That's it from me for now.

Please feel free to leave me your honest opinions, comments, your experiences...anything that you would like to share.

Look forward to hearing from you.
