A short piece from my new book on synchronicity...
"The etymological root of the word synchronicity is the Greek word, Chronos, who is the Greek God of time. The common definition of words such as synchronicity or synchronism is ‘a coincidence in time’. To me, however, there are no coincidences in life. Everything that happens ‘down here’ in the valley of the physical realm is being precisely orchestrated by the cosmic composer, our higher self, thus our source in God. There’s always a bigger picture to everything that manifests, no matter how turbulent or tumultuous the storms of life may become at times. Trust in this, trust in your life and allow the higher self to guide you to the fulfilment of your soul’s desires through the synchronicity that appears in your life.
Always follow synchronicity, as it’s truly the yellow brick road that will take you to the Wizard of Oz, the only one capable of taking you ‘home’ to the Promised Land. When you have a particular desire and set an intention, you must let go of the thinking minds need to know how things will come about. Don’t concern yourself with this; train yourself on a daily basis to let go and let God. When you successfully achieve such a state, you will behold the synchronistic bridge of incidents that appear before you to take you to where you desire to go.
Never look for synchronicity, allow it to find you. Looking for signs will keep you stuck in a repetitive loop that actually prevents you from shifting you to the reality adjacent unto your fulfilled desire. Because, if you’re on the lookout for signs, then you have yet to truly let go of the need to know how it will come about. Follow the yellow brick road by befriending the unknown! Allow the wizard of your higher self to guide you to where you need to go, step by step, lane by lane, this is the art of living on the physical plane."
