Synchronicity (sīng“kre-nīs“ī-tź, sīn“-) noun

1. The state or fact of being synchronous or simultaneous; synchronism.

2. Coincidence of events that seem to be meaningfully related, conceived in the theory of Carl Jung as an explanatory principle on the same order as causality.


Introduced by Carl Jung and Wolfgang Pauli, this term is used to refer to what could be described as meaningful coincidence; an obvious connection between two apparently (in terms of cause and effect) non-related events.

The concept of synchronicity - when seen in a wider and "esoteric-magical" context - raises strong questions concerning the existence of "coincidence" at all. Before the concept was known by this name, people often referred to such synchronistic events as portents or omens.

India and Tibet know a similar concept, called auspicious coincidence (Sanskrit., pratitya-samutpada) and/or interdependent co-origination (Tib., rten-'brel); strongly hinting at the basic definition of synchronicity as a coming together of several factors which, in concert, give rise to a certain situation.


The term "synchronicity" is otherwise viewed as the term "coincidence" by those who do not find themselves perceptually within its flow. With the basic frequency of the environment of the universe increasing, the concept of synchronicity is very important, because the ongoing perception of it is a "marker" of the relationship between your consciousness and the subjective reality you perceive. As most of you have no doubt noticed, the rate and perception of synchronicity is increasing, as is the perception that the linear time flow is speeding up. Perhaps the best overall composite commentary on synchronicity that we have so far seen is as follows:

"Synchronicity is the conscious perception in a physiological time track of the simultaneous manifestation of the multi-dimensional universe. It is the conscious recognition that all events, objects, relationships, points of view, perceptions and interactions are ONE thing viewed from different perspectives. As the basic resonant vibration of the system increases, synchronicity becomes more easily perceptible within experiential reality. Synchronicity is also a reflection of what you believe you reality to be. Synchronicity, relative to reality, IS what reality IS, and it is the WAY it is. Now, many people have discussed the subject of synchronicity, all the way from Carl Jung to Bashar. However, it is from Bashar, representing the Essassani, that we get further clarification: " Recognize that you are all functioning completely within synchronicity, but many of you choose to function within negative synchronicity, choosing a perception of a negative reality, rather than positive synchronicity and a positive perception of reality. Should you choose a negative reality, then those situations will be negative reflections."


"One way of thinking of this is to suppose that the waking world and the world of the dream have begun to merge. In a certain sense the school of UFO criticism that has said flying saucers are hallucinations was correct, but the laws that operate in the dream, can at times operate in three-dimensional space when the barrier between the two modes become weak. Then one gets these curious experiences, sometimes called psychotic breaks, that always have a tremendous impact on the experient because there seems to be an exterior component that could not possibly be subjective. At such times coincidences begin to build and build until one must finally admit that one does not know what is going on.

One cannot claim that there is simply a psychological model of it, it is really an alternative physics beginning to impinge on local reality."
