Hi All,

I really like the phrase, "When the student is ready, the master appears." because I have experienced this several times in my life.

From my personal experience, I've found that, "the master", isn't always necessarily a person either.

Hi LarryH, Hi All,

My wife and I have recently watched several episodes of a new show on TV called "God Friended Me".

This show may not be for everyone, but it's really pretty awesome. Its about a young man, who is somewhat of an atheist, who has an internet talk show. This young man, who's father is the minister of a church, get's friended by God on his smart phone. The stories are all about the people that this young man ultimately ends up helping out because of all the synchronous events that occur as a result of this.

It's very upbeat and positive.

Now that's a synchronous event.  :)

I'll have to look into that show. I don't have cable TV any more, just internet, so hopefully I can find it somewhere.

OK, here's something that could at least be considered a coincidence.

When I was getting ready to leave for this trip I decided to get some small gifts for the family we'd be staying with in Austria. Business partner/friend of my hubby, his wife, two teen daughters. I bought the older girl (17) a journal and on a whim decided to buy her a set of colorful fountain pens to write and draw in it. Pilot makes a set of 7 in really fun, bright colors. I have always loved fountain pens, have a small collection, and most people don't even know what fountain pens are these days.

Before we'd gotten to the presents, the older daughter was doing math homework at the kitchen table. With a fountain pen. She said she loves them and showed me her small collection. Needless to say the gift was a hit.

Oh, the younger girl (15) is into ballet and I'd bought her a sterling silver ballet slipper necklace. I added a Swarovsky crystal in her birthstone. Of course she loved it, no surprises there. She's still wearing it 4 days later. But her mother was the surprised one — she said she had been looking for the slipper pendant forever and couldn't find one anywhere. Amazon is my best friend. :)

This might better a better story of synchronicity:

Quote from: Deb
One little story, which could be written off as coincidence: When I was debating whether I should make this forum or not, I went out to run an errand. Within a couple of minutes a car I was next to at a traffic light had a sticker  for Elmira College on the back. A while later, at another intersection, a different car had an Elmira, NY dealership sticker on the back. Later on, Elmira showed up on something else. Keep in mind I live near Denver, 1500+ miles away from New York. I finally decided it was Jane giving me the go-ahead nod. Am I delusional? Could be. But, to see Elmira not once, but three different times on one local outing is quite the coincidence to me.

Delightful stories, Deb! The "Elmira" coincidences nudging you to start this discussion group are a great example of synchronicities related to spiritual guidance/life path.

Hi Deb,

Those, "on a whim" moments, like the one you had where you decided to buy this young woman a set of colorful pens, can be powerful intuitional nudges.

Love the story about the 3 incidences occurring in one outing, having to do with Elmira.

Hi All,

Recently, on Oct. 15, 2018, in the topic, titled “Thavis is Here”, I referenced a quote that I have sometimes heard, “There are no “atheists” in foxholes.”

Today, Oct. 21, 2018, while my wife and I were catching up on the recent TV episodes of the show, NCIS, one of the characters on the show said, “There are no “atheists” in foxholes.”, I just had to smile.  

I suspect that these types of things probably occur much more often than we realize.

Nice one!

I just had one. I'm back in Prague, was supposed to fly home tomorrow but the flight was cancelled without warning, so we have an extra day here.

It's night, dark out, just had dinner, walked around a bit, crossed the Charles Bridge and took some photos with my iPhone which turned out pretty nice.

FYI my son is moving back home for a few weeks at the end of October, until his next housing situation is available. He's 23, often ignores our texts and rarely initiates contact. To his credit he's a sous chef, works long hours, but he still thinks his parents are nerds.

I just decided to send my son one of my photos with a text asking if he wants to move some things into the house ahead of time, and to let him know we'll be getting home a day late. As soon as I pressed Send I got a text from him asking if we were back home yet and how the trip was. I looked at my Sent message and saw it was still sending -- Internet is slow here and the photo delayed my message a few seconds.

While my original text was still being sent, I wrote back asking if we had texted at exactly the same time. Yes, we did. Considering my son's low contact rate, for me this was definitely a synchronistic event.  ;D

A little story of synchronicity and also precognition.

My 23 year old son moved back home Nov 1. A temporary arrangement as he was waiting for his friend W's lease to expire in 2 months. There is a saying that a grown baby bird does not fit so well back in the nest. Truth.

Three adults in one house, two cars. My son works about a 30 minute drive from my house, and as a prep cook sometimes works 12-14 hour shifts. He normally takes the 4 wheel drive vehicle to work (public transportation from here would make the trip 1.5 hours one way). On Nov. 24 unknown to me he decided to take my 2006 Prius to work. Gas mileage was his reason. We were expecting light snow that night, and that car is not the best in deep snow or on ice. I've driven it here for 12 years of summer and winter and everything in between, with no problem. But I am a seasoned driver.

The evening of the 24th, a Saturday, and at home, I had a bad feeling. I can't express it other than texting my son, "It looks bad out there." That was about 10:45 pm. His shift was to end at 11:00 pm. I didn't get a response. Typical.

True confessions: lately I head up to bed about 9 pm. I read and surf the net for as long as I can stay awake. That night, I was still awake around 11:30 pm. In bed, but still fully dressed. I had the strongest feeling that I should not sleep, or relax, or change my clothes. That is unusual for me.

At 11:27 pm I got a call from him, that he'd been in a bad (single vehicle) accident. He had refused ambulance service and we were on the scene within 10-15 minutes. He tried to pass a truck that was traveling at a low speed in front of him. He moved to the right lane, and spun out on ice. Hit a large sign, mowed down a tree, came to rest nose to nose with a street lamp. Ended up with a broken right wrist, recently increasing right rib pain which we will examine tomorrow. Could have been much worse. My car was old but in perfect condition, was a total loss. I loved that car.

The synchronicity part: The friend he is planning to roommate with had a 2008 Prius. He came to visit my son several days ago, after the accident. W told me he'd had a similar weather-related accident in the past, in a Jeep. Four days ago he also had an accident... in his 2008 Prius. Not weather related. The car is totaled. And he has a few fractured ribs.

Hi Deb,

I’m so sorry to hear about your son and his accident.  I hope everything turns out OK with him. Sometimes in an accident, our bodies go into shock and a day or so later, we discover aches and pains that we weren’t aware of at first. I’ll visualize healing energy for him.

As far as the car, that’s really too bad. My wife and I had a similar experience years ago. We had a 10 year old Toyota Corolla and it was a great car. It got totaled in an accident and while the insurance gave us some money back for it, it was not nearly as much as this car was worth to us. I think it could have easily gone on for at least another 100,000 miles.

Thanks jbseth. X-rays today show no rib fractures, so maybe just bruised bones. He'll recovery quickly.

As is typical for my "luck" -- the insurance company has been amazing and is actually sending a check that is double what research said my car was worth, because it was in excellent condition other than a little hail damage. But at 12 years old with 155,000+ miles on it, the car was the most reliable one I've ever had and could have gone another 100,000 miles. Other than a few tricky headlamp bulb changes that required some contortion and the use of inner senses (lol), everything still worked. I'm amazed at how safe the car ended up in being in such a crash. Drawers, visors and armrests having been flipped open tell me how hard the impact was.

I always feel things happen for a reason, and have been pondering the timing of this event and how it served as value fulfillment for several people all at once. I've got a little Seth in me. :)

The 2006 Prius has been replaced with a 2018 Prius of the same color. The new car is so smart I don't even have to think any more, it does it for me. This recent story is not far off from some of the abilities of my new car. And what was really amazing for me is that the new car was priced similarly to what I paid for the 2006 model.

Hi All,

I was just looking at the site below: "116 Amazing Facts for People who like Amazing Facts (see site below)

http://www.msn.com/en-us/lifestyle/smart-living/116-amazing-facts-for-people-who-like-amazing-facts/ss-AAnzXBJ?li=BBnb7Kz&ocid=DELLDHP#image=61


and I literally just paged forward to item 61, which says that Brenda Lee was 13 years old when she recorded "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree".

At the very instant I paged forward to this item, the radio I was listening to started to play, "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree", by Brenda Lee.

I'd say that was a synchronous event. :)

Good one!

Wow, 13, that's amazing. She sounds older.

I was surprised when I found out that Arlo Guthrie was 19 when his Alice's Restaurant album was produced. I was listening to the song on Thanksgiving while I was cooking, our local radio station plays it throughout the day every year. It still makes me laugh.

A small event that I almost missed today.

I went to the local Floyd's to get a haircut this morning. My stylist was behind on her schedule, so I decided to pick a magazine off the rack to kill some time. Of the two dozen or so magazines with impossibly young and beautiful models and starlets on the cover, I settled for a tattered National Geographic dated Oct 2018. About half way though there was an article on jellyfish. That's when I remembered a dream from last night. I was walking somewhere near what I thought was a lake or stream. Washed up on a rock near the shore was a small jellyfish, maybe 2" in diameter. It looked just like a Moon jelly in the article. I didn't see tentacles, just the top, as it was lying flat on the rock. But I knew what it was. I can't say I've EVER dreamed about jellyfish, so while this was a small matter it was significant enough for me.

Oh, there was also an article about flowers being viewed under ultraviolet light. Gorgeous. Talk about the senses being lovely liars (planning a response to that topic). There is much outside of our perceptible EMF range of vision and sound. There are insects and animals that have the ability to sense things outside of the human range, and yet most people only believe in what they can see, hear or feel.

Hi Deb,

That's awesome when that occurs (remembered that you dreamed about something last night, after you saw the dream symbol or experienced the dream event, the following day). This happens to me on occasion.

Sometimes, I'll also remember the dream the next morning, and then after this, I'll see the dream symbol or experience the dream event, later on in the same day or within a few days. 

Does this happen to you too?  :)

Hi Deb,

I just took a look at those flowers photographed under UV light.

Wow, those pictures are beautiful. I especially liked the Bee Balm and the floral bouquet.  Like the Nat. Geo. article says, it does seem to make you think that you are on Pandora, from James Cameron's movie "Avatar".

I wonder if this is where he got the idea for that???

Thanks for sharing.

I can't say that I've noticed that happening, I tend to be a little thick about that stuff. But since this last experience I'm going to be paying more attention!

Great question, I don't know. I do love the bee balm as well. I went to his web site but it didn't explain how he got into the UV photography, although he does explain the process a little. I have a special interest in it because I used to have African Grey parrots and I'd read they see into the UV spectrum. Bees as well. Plus I'm a certified botanical illustrator although I haven't done any of that for too many years. His flowers would be a lot of fun to paint. When I was a kid I used to try to imagine what I was seeing in different colors because at some point I realized that people probably see colors differently. Such as, what I see as blue may what you see as my orange, but we both agree to label the color "blue." I'd try to imagine a yellow sky, pink grass, etc. I think part of the charm of these photos for me is that they provide such a different color spectrum from what I'm used to.

It happened again, another dream connection!

I'm starting an art class tomorrow. Many years ago I was teaching him and a couple of his little friends how to draw. I had bought them all art supplies, we didn't get too far, and about a year ago I gave my son all the supplies we hadn't used. He was storing them in a closet.

This morning I asked if he still had some sketch pads. He pulled out 5 sketch pads and gave them all to me. I picked one, put it aside. I just now opened it and there, on the first page, written in little boy printing:

[heart] to mom.
I love you alot its hard
to explain I wish could
do it but it not that
plain. I love mr. blue
I
like that mr. blue
is blue. I think
he does too. How about you?


Mr. Blue is a stuffed bear that I was given at my baby shower. He was my son's favorite stuffed animal and I still have him somewhere in the house.

Seeing this reminded me that I had a very brief dream about Mr. Blue last night. In it, my son was with a friend, who was holding Mr. Blue. I was explaining to the friend about Mr. Blue and that the toy is actually a little older than my son, who is 23.

I have NEVER dreamed about this toy before, and no reason to have dreamed about it last night, I haven't thought about the toy in years.

Yesterday I gave a talk Synchronicity - A Wink from the Hidden Domain at a local spiritual center. Most of the synchronistic events, all of the quotes from Seth and others, and my accompanying opinions are already in this thread. I think I shared about 10 synchronicities, and the talk lasted about 1/2-hour. It was very well-received with many positive comments afterwards and requests to speak again. Maybe my next topic will be Seth. This forum and the Seth search engine will be great tools if I choose to do that.
