5 Ways to Attract Synchronicity

5 Ways to Attract Synchronicity

Do you believe in coincidences? You know when you’re thinking about someone, and then the phone rings and it’s that person? That’s synchronicity, which can be explained as a meaningful coincidence.

    This principal occurs on a much larger scale in daily life, and I’m going to share how you can recognise and utilise it to benefit you.

    These five steps have helped me transform my life in amazing ways. I went from Struggle Street, to millionaire and beyond. I finally found a way I could play the game of life, and win!

    Here’s what you can to do to open yourself and attract synchronistic events into your life:

    Form a Clear Intention

    Become absolutely clear of your goal. Be as specific as possible. Write it down. Visualize it! Give as much detail as possible. When I first did this step my motivation was 100% financial. I decided I wanted to be wealthy, but more specifically, I wanted to earn $50K/month.

      I was a time poor, grumpy, financially challenged mechanic, and the idea of earning $50K/month was beyond my reality. But I stuck with my intention and my specific dollar amount, and this change of mindset opened me up to a chain of synchronistic events that brought me to my goal.

      Once you are crystal clear on what you wish to create, aligned ‘coincidences’ will start presenting to you. For me, it was meeting three separate men, who shared their success stories with me, who all earned exactly $50K/month.

      Stay firm in the belief that you can do it. The only limit is your imagination. Accept that your life can change for the better, you don’t need to know how at this point, you just have to believe it.

      Stop Resisting Outcomes

      You set the clear intention, great. What happens next? The ‘what ifs’ drift in. It’s a self-survival tool our mind utilizes to guard against negative outcomes. You must resist.

      When something happens to take you off track, it makes you think you can’t achieve the goal and you give up a little bit of hope on that clear intention. You’re no longer suspending disbelief of your pie-in-the-sky ideal and you slip back into your linear reality. This can happen easily during a conversation with a friend or family member, just trying to protect you. You’ve got to keep suspending the belief. The synchronistic events will follow.

      Be Playful with Your Perceptions

      Find the opportunity in every event as it pertains to your vision. See any setback as though it was supposed to happen. Instead of being grim and wallowing in current circumstances, stand by your decision and follow through.

      Be playful with this, start perceiving everything as though it was meant to be, as if it’s leading you closer to your goal. Synchronicity will start playing out in front of you just follow it.

      Trust Your Snap Judgement

      You have to start trusting in your gut, your intuition, which supports your snap judgements. Those initial instincts that set you on this path were there for a reason.

      When things start going bad, people have a tendency to say – it’s an omen, get out! Refuse to believe the negative hype, back yourself and jump in with both feet. Before long you’ll be following one synchronistic breadcrumb after another delivering you to everything you’ve envisaged.

      Follow the Breadcrumbs

        Two weeks into my entrepreneurial adventure, I hadn’t received any wins. This was the date I was supposed to be returning to my job after my holidays, but the boss fired me when he found out I was launching a new business venture.

        Because I had no job to return to, I kept going. By that fourth week, I had a huge surge in results and started earning more money per week than I was previous banking per month. If I had not been fired, this wouldn’t have occurred.

        That was the final breadcrumb in a line of meaningful coincidences that all equated to one struggling mechanic’s rise to successful entrepreneurship, and his first pie-in-the-sky achievement of $50K/month.

        This, of course, can apply to absolutely anything your life. Weight loss, health, relationships, and lifestyle goals. Each one must start with a clear intention, steadfast focus, the ability to see events from your chosen perception, and trusting your gut!

        Beliefs are self-fulfilling prophecies. Beliefs create reality, for everyone! Coincidence is one thing, but when it happens a hundred times in a row, to people around you, and to yourself, that’s beyond coincidence. That’s the Universe sending you breadcrumbs. That’s synchronicity working for you.

        How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

        How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

        Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

        You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

        Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

        1. Work on the small tasks.

        When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

        Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

        2. Take a break from your work desk.

        Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

        Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

        3. Upgrade yourself

        Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

        The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

        4. Talk to a friend.

        Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

        Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

        5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

        If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

        Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

        Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

        6. Paint a vision to work towards.

        If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

        Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

        Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

        7. Read a book (or blog).

        The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

        Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

        Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

        8. Have a quick nap.

        If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

        9. Remember why you are doing this.

        Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

        What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

        10. Find some competition.

        Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

        Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

        11. Go exercise.

        Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

        Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

        As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

        Here’re 15 Tips to Restart the Exercise Habit (and How to Keep It).

        12. Take a good break.

        Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

        Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

        Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
