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.

        7 Morning Rituals to Empower Your Day And Change Your Life

        7 Morning Rituals to Empower Your Day And Change Your Life

        Most of your reality is not a given. It is shaped by your expectations, beliefs and thoughts you have formed about it. A big chunk of these beliefs and expectations are encoded into habits you integrate in your daily life.

        Yes, some of these habits are formed unconsciously and can be counter-productive or limiting but conversely, you can consciously form positive habits that will transform and empower your life significantly.

        This is a powerful point of departure that more and more people are becoming aware of. The most common trait of highly successful people is the recognition of the power they have in co-creating their reality through changing the way they think, believe or expect their reality to be.

        One of the most effective ways of changing our belief patterns is through practising and maintaining daily rituals. Ancient traditions had clearly understood the power of rituals in reinforcing habits and changing the way we see and create our reality a long, long time ago.

        Once again, if you look into the life history of any highly successful individual, you will find some form of ritual in their daily routine. Some of these rituals may seem banal or eccentric but don’t be deceived by appearances. Rituals are one of the most effective self-empowering tools freely available at the practitioner’s disposal – that is, you!

        Below are some the easiest yet life-changing morning rituals you can do every day. Of course, you can have your own afternoon or bed-time rituals but morning rituals are extremely effective in empowering your day since they help you charge yourself before it all starts.

        1. Gratitude

        Feeling gratitude and appreciation for those little signs and moments of joy happening in your life is probably one of the most overlooked or underestimated rituals. It is a perfect morning ritual to start your day on a very positive key.

        Advertising

        The real power of gratitude is that it makes you pick out and focus on what is working in your life – what is in tune with your being as a whole. It is selectively positive. It reinforces happiness and positivity by shedding light on those awesome things, small or big, that grace your everyday living.

        Quite often, we just pick out the pain points, the problems, the bottle necks, whatever it is that is not working in our life and causing friction, anxiety and unhappiness. This is like constantly rewriting the script of your life with a negative or tragic overtone. Your subconscious mind follows faithfully that script you write whether it is a negative or positive one.

        So feeling gratitude is undoubtedly an immensely empowering ritual. Start your day by being thankful for those positive things that happened the previous day or throughout the week. It could be something really petty and small. It doesn’t matter. You might be grateful for an unexpected visit from an old friend, a beautiful encounter with a kind stranger, a new opportunity or whatever it is that shines your way. Do it every morning and see what happens during the day.

          2. Writing Down Your Most Important Tasks

          This is a very practical ritual. Start your day by identifying and writing down from one to three of the most important tasks you need to complete during that day. These tasks are ones which support important long term goals that are aligned to your purpose, passion or general direction in life.

          For example, if writing a book or building an online community are important long term goals which are aligned to your personal growth, then an important task for the day might be finishing off a particular page or two of the book or coming up with fresh content ideas for the online community.

          What is important with this ritual is that you identify these tasks and complete them as early in the day as possible. Of course, you will have other tasks apart from the ones you will write down but, these are tasks which can be tackled later or batched up and carried out in one go.

          Writing down your most important tasks in the morning helps you focus your day and life according to what is essential. It helps you prioritize and manage your time better. As a result, you simplify your life by applying your focus and energy on what really counts for your overall life progress.

          3. Affirm Your Goals in Writing or Drawing

          This is similar to the previous idea but different in its application and purpose. Writing down your most important tasks of the day is a way to have a concrete structure of action to follow. Affirming your goals, on the other hand, is a very powerful way of crystallizing your vision and goals in life into your everyday mental space.

          Writing down or doodling your goals on a piece of paper helps you externalize those goals by giving them form. In return, they are reflected back in your subconscious mind and thus, reinforcing them and integrating them more wholly.

          An example of this would be writing down “I am achieving greater success in my career” or “I am becoming healthier and stronger through my exercise.” Notice the present tense being used as a way to tell yourself you are in the process already. Remember the life script we subconsciously follow? You are basically modifying the script to be applied now in the present.

          Drawing or doodling can be equally, or even more, effective  (if you are more of a visual person) as it summarizes a graphical representation of your goals. For example, if your goal is to build a new house or live in another country, you can draw the house or draw things that symbolise the country you want to live in.

            4. Practice Qi Gong Exercises

            According to Chinese philosophy, Qi (pronounced ‘Chee’) means the life force or energy inherent in all things;[1] and Qi Gong is the practice to cultivate and circulate that energy in your body. This may sound esoteric or complicated but actually, Qi Gong is really a set of simple exercises aimed at increasing your health and vitality.

            Advertising

            There are numerous forms and practices available for free through the online media. As a morning ritual, I recommend following these simple exercises by Qi Gong master Lee Holden:

            5. Drink Hot Water with Lemon

            Simply add a slice of lemon in a glass of hot water and drink one every morning. This is a very simple ritual I follow faithfully every morning.

            Apart from being a good source of vitamin C and a great way of flushing out toxins in the morning, it balances and maintains the PH levels in the body, reduces pain and inflammation in joints and knees and helps nourishing brain and nerve cells. Here are some more benefits of drinking hot water with lemon.

            6. Rise Earlier

            The practical advantages of waking up early are obvious.

            For example, you gain more time for doing exercise such as walking, cycling or Qi Gong as suggested above. You gain more time to be with yourself to reflect, meditate or, more importantly, carry out the other morning rituals.

            So rising early can be seen as a foundation for all the other morning rituals. Many, like myself, find that they are more productive in the early hours of the day.

            Also, various studies have shown that there are many other benefits from waking up an hour or two earlier in the morning. Sleeping early and waking up early helps the body attune with the earth’s circadian rhythms thus, promoting more restorative sleep. Other curious results from such studies show, for instance, that early risers tend to be more optimistic and can anticipate and solve problems more efficiently than the norm.[2]

            7. Listen to Uplifting Music

            Uplifting music can have a direct impact on our mood, especially in the morning. It charges us emotionally and tunes us into a more positive outlook of the day ahead.

            Most people wake up to music or listen to music as they commute to work. Very often, however, they tune in to a radio or randomly pick a playlist from their device. Being more selective and conscious of the music you listen to in the morning can have a great impact on your day and life in general.

            It’s funny how we try to choose music according to our mood. For example if you are feeling down or disappointed by something, you are more prone to listen to music that reflects that mood – for instance blues, sad songs or downtempo music. This has the effect of reinforcing that mood. What you need to do is the exact opposite and retune your mood by listening to music that beats to a different tune than that mood.

            Try to listen to more uplifting music in the morning even if, or especially if, your mood does not dictate so.
