Synchronicity, meaningful coincidences, law of attraction, manifestation.. whatever you want to call it, there really are no random coincidences. Everything happens for a reason, including those we come across during our lifetime.
We may not even be aware of it at the time, but a random stranger may very well be the stimulus leading up to a chain of events. I’m always astonished at the synchronicities and interconnectedess of people and events that happen in life, but then I stop to wonder why I’m even surprised. We often take charge by making conscious decisions. However, sometimes there’s so much manifestation happening that the universe has already conspired to make things happen before we’re even aware that we’ve made a decision.
This may sound a bit like psychobabble or some new age mumbo jumbo, but the science behind it is quite simple. Know what you want, why you want it, say your ideas out loud, surround yourself with like-minded individuals, put it all into action, and make it happen. When you have an idea or thoughts that you believe in, your consciousness can make it happen. Saying it out loud articulates your belief to yourself and can also plant the seed in those around you as well.
“Once we’re thrown off our habitual paths, we think all is lost, but it’s only here that the new and the good begins.” -Leo Tolstoy
