What is Synchronicity?
The term synchronicity is coined by Jung to express a concept that belongs to him. It is about a causal connection of two or more psycho-physic phenomena.
This concept was inspired by a patient's case that was in a situation of impasse in treatment. Her exaggerate rationalism (animus inflation) was holding her back from assimilating unconscious materials. One night, the patient dreamt a golden scarab - cetonia aurata. The next day, during the psychotherapy session, a real insect this time, hit against the Jung's cabinet window. Jung caught it and discovered surprisingly that it was a golden scarab; a very rare presence for that climate.
The unknown is interacting with us and we are interacting with the unknown... through EVENTS.
Synchronicity is the experience of two or more events that are apparently unrelated and are unlikely to occur together by chance, yet the two apparently unrelated events create an experience of connecting and occurring together in a way that is meaningful to the observer.
2013 The Year of The Water Snake
I have never been so aware of the psychic effects / manifestations within the Chinese geomantic sciences / alchemy behind the cycles of what could be called "the collective psyche of mankind". This year is blowing my mind in terms of awareness, observation and a deeper understanding .. far beyond the events we now see unfolding in the world.
I am just going to explain this in my own words...
Since my last post on April 8th .. Europe Is The Sum of Its Parts .. I have been observing and watching with no overview of the chaos I see present in this world. Therefore, I have been very quiet and with tremendous inner energy only of observing (like a snake). I have been watching myself even as I observe the world around me.
I have this visual artistic mind, where I understand things in terms of a visual Spiritual Mandala. One aspect is that usually I see events from above, like an eagle .. and now I see events from ground level, like a snake.
This does not mean restricted awareness, as the snake has been a symbol for higher-awareness and deeper alchemy for over thousands of years. For me, this change in inner perception translates to deeper understanding and a withdrawal from the mundane physical world. For example, I can see that we humans are ONE HUMANITY regardless of state of mind of each individual human.
Translated, this means that each faction and each opposing segment with their own personal, political and spiritual ideology .. opposing and struggling against each other is a complete and total illusion in terms of the totality of the unified human MIND. What I mean by that is, we all are part of and are connected to the Operating System of the human consciousness as a complete whole.
Whether we like it or not we humans = all of us .. are all on the same boat .. sharing the same Planet Earth .. sharing the same resources and needs .. sharing the same physical / spirit journey. You see the two opposites of the selfish and the greedy versus those who work for the balance of greater compassion and equality (sharing). The fact is, that the service-to-self greedy humans are part of the undivided whole.
Humans Inside Events Inside Humans
Now we come to "synchronicity" and the strange world of physical man (matter) interconnected to the mysterious .. the unknown .. some primordial force that has existed long before physical humans came to Planet Earth. Basically, we are spirit (life) inside physical matter (human body) experiencing a journey currently on Earth. The physical human is PSYCHE / MIND interacting with REALITY.
The human body is like a living biological computer, where the incarnate spirit is the mind (intelligence) using the interactive physical computer. The spirit fits into the body in the same way a pilot fits into the cockpit of a flying machine. The physical body is the vehicle, the spirit is the incarnate pilot .. and the Operating System is the psychic interface navigated through the mind / psyche.
Some individuals use their physical incarnation to take out others and fly around like fighter pilots ready to kill, while other individuals use their physical incarnation to rescue, protect or aid others. The way I see it right now .. most humans do not get off the ground .. we have very few pilots in the air. Too many people are grounded .. perhaps out of fear ?? Perhaps also out of selfishness or lack of spiritual strength / confidence.
Here, we have this totally incredible life .. spirit-beings [energy] incarnate within neat fitting physical bodies, to experience virtual reality on Earth .. and the majority of humans do not have any idea of who they are .. why they are here .. and what an extraordinary gift life is = not to be wasted nor corrupted.
We human beings experience events outside our control [humans inside events] .. but at the same time - in the same moment - the events are simultaneously inside the humans [psyche]. For example, you may surf the Internet / the Web (external) .. but your relationship to the Internet is INTERNAL !!
How do you react to what you see and read? You react internally !!
In a similar and more complex way human beings are connected to LIFE .. where life means = the Planet, resources, food, air, water, nature, physical location, family, friends, animals, birds, trees, plants, weeds .. and also how we react to physical reality .. our moods, attitudes, opinions, our fears, joy of life, sorrow, suffering and personal self-interest.
Who is the captain, navigator or pilot of the physical body experience?
Clearly! You are the pilot of your own existence.
The set-up is brilliant beyond belief. Here you have sovereign unique life forms, who have the space to be who they are lifetime after lifetime .. until each unique life form decides to manifest change, inner-enlightenment, transformation, compassion, synchronicity with the ONE .. the wholeness of life.
The wholeness of life is not some weak intellectual Esoteric idea... The wholeness of life is the point of origin. Something so real that it is beyond transient physical human or biological existence. This is where the mysterious inner life / psyche of humans comes to meet physical existence .. the point where spirit meets matter meets psyche.
We currently live in a three dimensional world. A world where spirit meets physical matter meets psyche [mind]. Spirit gives life to physical matter! The psyche is the interface between spirit and matter.
It may surprise you to know that there is psyche within the leaf of a tree .. there is psyche within a seed .. there is psyche within the scales of a fish or within the feathers of a bird. Everything is interconnected. The scales of a fish understand water. The feathers of a bird understand air. The atmospheres of space understand the magnetic fields of Sun and Earth... Soil understands a plants roots and a plants roots understands soil.
Water understands land, rock, soil, air, roots, skin, cells, brain, blood, feathers, fire... Fish cannot breath outside of water, river, oceans .. and humans cannot breath outside of Earth's atmosphere.
Everything is inter-related...
