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.

        8 Simple Mindfulness Exercises to Bring Peace and Happiness to Your Life

        In life, we all need to be conscientious of what we are doing. You don’t need to live a life of stress if you don’t want to. You can achieve peace and happiness in life by carefully building mindfulness exercises into your life’s routine.

        Exercising mindfulness isn’t rocket science and as importantly, you can do it. It will, however, take a few tries to get into the groove of things but once you get it, it is like riding a bike, you will never lose it.

        Trust me. It’s in your best interest to learn and put these mindfulness exercises into practice. In this article, I will share with you 8 mindfulness exercises that will help you to boost your energy, vitality and live a more peaceful and happier life.

        Why Is It Hard to Live A Peaceful And Happy Life?

        Our Habitat Has Become Too Technological

        The world has accepted the idea that technology is often the cure for all evil. We have accepted, as a society, that everything technological will make us live a better life without fully investigating the many side effects that modernity brings.

        There are a number of technological side effects that have a tremendous impact on your life that the media rarely tells you about.[1] Some of them include self-harm, economic inequality, having less sex, and even suicide. The global community is becoming less happy because of technology.

        How can anybody live a peaceful and happy life when they are depressed? Technology advancements, ladies and gents, is a major reason for why we are living a poor life because it has infiltrated our lives too much.

        According to my research, Americans spend an average of 8 hours a day looking at the computer screen — The average screen time spent on smartphones alone is about 20 hours per week. That’s a lot! No wonder why living a happy and peaceful life is so difficult these days.

        Too Many People Don’t Want to Unplug

        Americans check their phones an average of 80 times during vacation.[2] Some admit to checking their smartphones 300 times every single day. In countries like Brazil, India and China, the situation is no different.

        The reality is that people are constantly plugged into technological devices and this behavior is literally making people all over the globe fight an inner war with themselves, which consequently makes them very sad. As we know, war is the enemy of peace which won’t make anybody happy.

        Listen carefully:

        We have a global anxiety epidemic because people don’t want to unplug from their smartphones and most people aren’t doing anything to fix it. It is a sad state of affairs but very real. This obsession with technology is turning us into perishable robots who live terrible lives.

        The era of anxiety is here to stay. There is little doubt about it. We can, however, fight back with the best remedy of all — We call it mindfulness!

        Thank God there is an antidote to this whole technological madness. Without further ado, let’s go straight to the mindful exercises.

        8 Mindfulness Exercises to Start Practicing

        There are tons of mindfulness exercises available for you to engage with out there.[3] In the paragraphs below, I will include the best ones I’ve personally tried or have seen my close friends and family members try.

        Are you ready for it? Let’s go!

        1. Pray Daily

        You should pray on a daily basis. Why is that you may ask — Well, because science has told us to do so.

        When people pray, they feel peaceful, almost eliminating anxiety. Worries become secondary, and often gives people energy and hope to cope with the difficulties of life.

        Prayer can make you more confident and focused. Prayer also helps you with self-control, helps to control pain, and can protect you against illnesses and disorders like cancer and high blood pressure. At least, this is what researchers from Harvard Medical School have said.[4]

        Pray. You won’t regret it.[5]

        2. Pay Attention to Your Inner Thoughts

        A lot of people allow themselves to be influenced by their negative thoughts. Be different and resist believing in them. It is a bad habit that can lead to unhappiness.

        By the way, if you do feel this way, chances are high that somebody other than you put these thoughts into your head.

        Here is my secret to combat this cancer — look at things objectively. I bet that if you look at things as they are, you will realize that most if not all of your negative thoughts are only inside of your head.

        If you pay close attention, you will quickly realize that these voices aren’t worth your time. Believe me — Ignoring them and looking at things with objectivity is often the best course of action.

        3. Smile Often

        Smiling will slow down your heart. It will also relax your body because when you smile, your body releases endorphins which in itself has a number of positive benefits for you as a person.

        Smile often! You may want to smile early in the morning, during the day, and late in the evening. It is amazing what happens to you when you decide to smile instead of being grumpy.

        Surrender your problems to a nice smile. You will notice two things. First, most people just don’t which makes them live a miserable life. Second, if you decide to smile often, you will eventually smile unconsciously which is the ideal.

        The moment that you smile unconsciously, you then know that you are truly happy.

        4. Organize Your Working Desk

        A messy desk will make you less productive and can agitate and overstimulate you. You don’t want that.

        When you clear your desk, you engage in deep inner-thinking and your systematic decision making ends up becoming therapeutic.

        Most people realize that they are most creative when their creative space is clean and organized. The former often makes people more aware of what they are doing which lends to less stress and more productivity.

        Organizing your desk will also make you more energetic and focused because order often decreases chaos which is a condition that often slows down daily progress.

        5. Celebrate Your Friend’s Victories

        I love this mindful exercise. One of the best ways to live a happy and peaceful life is to celebrate the victories of others. When you do that, you automatically make your friends in a better mood which makes you in a better mood, as well.

        Happiness is contagious! We might as well celebrate others as much as we can. If you find out that your peer has won an award, celebrate with him! If your friend is the recipient of a local charity award, celebrate with her!

        What is also awesome is that when you celebrate with others, they often celebrate with you in return. This, ladies and gentleman, will make you feel fantastic. You can’t go wrong with this one, period.

        6. Listen to Your Spouse/Partner

        God put someone in your life for a reason. You might as well listen to him or her.

        I listen to my wife everyday. In fact, I often ask the following question to her, “Amanda, what are your thoughts about…” or “What am I missing about…” It is shocking what I hear back from her. Without her having much context and perspective, by the art of observation in my own nonverbal behavior and the behavior of others, she accurately gives me incredible insights which helps me out with living my life to the fullest.

        I’m a firm believer that spouses are supposed to engage in interpersonal communication every day. I most definitely do and will continue doing it. You should do the same.

        7. Give Yourself a Break from Technology

        You can’t be in total equilibrium if your computerized devices control your life. You must get away from technology on a daily basis.[6]

        How do you do that? This is my formula:

        First, take this smartphone control test. It is only ten questions but this test will place you somewhere in the human robot cycle continuum.

        If your score is between 25-30, take a break from the computer (or smartphone, pad, laptop/desktop) every twenty minutes and stop being on a computerized device after 8:00pm.

        If you score between 30-35, still take a break every 20 minutes but stop being on these devices at 5:00pm.

        Advertising

        If you score more than 35, you need to take action immediately.

        Limit computer use as much as possible throughout the day. Give yourself as many breaks from the computer as possible. Are you ready for the challenge?

        8. Go Exercise

        Go exercise at least three times a week. I don’t care if you need to workout early in the morning, late in the evening, on the weekends or during work days. Working out is absolutely imperative for you to live happy and peaceful life.

        The stresses of the modern world are too much for you to neglect this important mindfulness exercise. When you go to the gym, you burn calories, focus on activities one step at a time, your mind relaxes, anxiety decreases, you sweat and often think about topics unrelated to your work place among many other benefits.

        You must exercise at least three hours each week for optimum results. Why? Just take a look at all the benefits of regular exercising:

        The Bottom Line

        It’s in your best interest to learn and put these mindfulness exercises into practice. Now that our habitat has become too technological and many people just don’t want to unplug, engaging in daily prayer, celebrate your friends’ victories, and listening to your spouse are among the best ways to be mindful about what you are doing and how you are living.

        It is possible to live a happy and peaceful life. It only depends on you.

        Go exercise! Take a break from technology and invest in you! Life is too short for distractions.
