In this lecture, I show my path to what I call synchronistic living. It was many synchronicities that led me on this path. In other words, they spoke out of themselves and thus showed me that instead of causally, thanks to the will, one can shape one's life based on meaningful coincidences thanks to "preconscious knowledge" (C.G. Jung) and thus grow into one's destiny. The first transformation of consciousness consists is renouncing personal will and thus finding out what destiny wants from one. "Become who you are".

Synchronicities, as meaningful coincidences, and psi at large, are nonlocal processes that contravene the local-causal EM laws in spacetime, as well as the indeterminacy of quantum mechanics since they are driven by meaning. Real-life synchronicities (some analyzed in this paper) can be explained only by a hyperdimensional (beyond spacetime) and tachyonic consciousness-energy infusing and interconnecting all beings and systems, creating their individual hyperdimensional consciousness layer. In the Infinite Spiral Staircase theory (ISST), a person’s consciousness is a hyperdimensional “syg-field” (whose subject is the Self), self-organized by such tachyonic “syg-energy” deeply entwined with the brain/body, via network-connective dynamics. The hyperdimensional Self and syg-energy’s nonlocal properties and parameters offer a coherent theoretical foundation for explaining both synchronicities and psi, given a Retrocausal Attractor and feedback loop at the brain’s sub-quantum scale.

Synchronicity and the limits of re-enchantment

2011 •

Roderick Main

Since C.G. Jung's (1875–1961) death fifty years ago the majority of work on synchronicity has concentrated, like Jung's, either on the connections of the concept to science, religion, and the relationship between science and religion, or, more fully than Jung's, on the clinical implications of the concept. However, Jung also hinted at important social and cultural implications of synchronicity that so far have been little explored. The present paper looks at synchronicity in relation to disenchantment – a theme that connects to both science-religion debates and sociological and cultural debates. Using as a reference point Charles Taylor's characterisation inA secular age(2007) of the transformations that led from the enchanted, pre-modern world to the disenchanted, modern world, the paper considers the extent to which Jung's concept of synchronicity contributes to a re-enchantment of the world. It concludes that the re-enchantment is substantial but avowedly part...

Synchronicity: A Glimpse of the Higher Power?

John Hart Young

Carl Jung’s theory of Synchronicity: An Acausal Connecting Principle is defined as the “…occurrence of a certain psychic state with one or more external events which appear as meaningful parallels to the momentary subjective state…” Fundamental to this proposal, developed with physicist Wolfgang Pauli, is the profound assertion that the acausal nature of synchronicity is “equal in rank to causality as a principle of explanation” (Jung, 1960, pp. 435,441). The epistemology of this concept is explored via literature review. Its healing value in diverse psychotherapeutic modalities ranging from analytical to indigenous is also delineated. Special attention is devoted to the connection between purported healing attributes of synchronicity and spiritual recovery from addictive process disorders and other maladies of post- modern life

Synchronicity: Meaningful Coincidence or Chance

Kim Falconer

Synchronicity is a term originated by the Swiss psychiatrist Carl. G. Jung that attempts to explain the paradoxical occurrence of events that are tied together without obvious cause but have intrinsic meaning to the person experiencing them. Jung said, "(Synchronicity is) the coincidence in time of two or more causally unrelated events which have the same meaning." (Peat, n.d.). An example would be thinking of someone when suddenly the phone rings and it is them, or perhaps considering a new course of action and finding that very endeavor mentioned repeatedly in conversations, on TV or in the news.
