A meaningful coincidence of two or more events, where something other than the probability of chance is involved. Carl Jung
When we are clear about our intention magic happens. When we know what we want, we can see the doors or the windows of opportunity opening up before us. This is called synchronicity. It is not about luck, and yet it is. It's designed luck!
Inversely, when we don't walk with intention the openings go unnoticed. Being grounded in purpose and intent is key to claiming all that is possible. If I look at life through that lens of clarity, I can notice the openings and then step into the new possibility.
The place I can get stuck is not stepping. Not like I don't forget my purpose and go oblivious to all the doors and windows that are open to me, of course that happens. But what traps me in the land of status-quo, is seeing the opening and doubting that the door before me is my door. Do you remember that old game show where you got to pick your prize behind door number one, two, or three? If the contestant picked the right door there was the prize waiting for them on the other side. If they picked wrong, then off they went empty handed.
Of course life isn't a game show, and the good news is we never go home empty handed when we step toward our passion and purpose. Sometimes what looks like nothing on the other side, is another door off in the distance. We just have to notice it.
