“I am he, and he is me, and we are all together”.
Is this what the great masters and teachers such as Jesus, Buddha, and Muhammad have been implying for centuries? If so, I was beginning to understand it. The spirits fondly expressed to me that when we have real attachments to things, such as to a particular writer, poet, artist, or sculptor, and are drawn to his or her work, it is probably because we were actually the creator of that piece of work. If we read something from history that profoundly teaches us, we may have been part of the actual event. Even if we are extremely attached or moved to help someone, perhaps to support a child in a Third World country, then we are probably that child in a different lifetime expression. Do unto others as you would do unto yourself; the other might actually be you! Now there’s a thought.
I am still processing this information and probably will be for several years to come. It is amazing. The spirits have since taught me to journey to my other lifetimes and to remember the wisdom I gained from each lifetime expression. I have also learned to journey to souls I would like to learn more about. The possibilities available through journeying are unlimited. Journeys to other lifetimes can be extremely informative, but also lots of fun. I highly recommend them for anyone practicing their journey skills.
We need to understand that lifetimes are both experiences of the soul and an exchange of energy. We also need to remember that everything is energy. Lifetimes are energy, and thoughts, words, and actions are energy. Everything is energy and everything affects and is affected by everything else. Energy used in a directive way is power.
The universe is in a constant state of motion striving to keep energy in balance. Even if we are not consciously aware of our energy and how it affects the whole universe, the universe is aware of it. We are all very powerful beings.
The actions of every person on the planet affect the lives of us all; one never does anything that is isolated from others. We are all interconnected in a divine sphere relating, interrelating, and exchanging energy in a holographic and profound way. These interrelationships are extremely complex, coloring every experience we have.
I understand that this is a difficult concept because it is so vast, so I will describe it metaphorically: A butterfly hatches out of its cocoon 2,000 years ago. It sits in the sun in a far away country to dry its wings. It then begins to flap its wings, moving the air around its body. That movement of air alters the surrounding nature and the influences expand ever outward. That continuing effect of change creates our weather patterns today!
This metaphor is, in truth, an expression of the scientific principle of complexity. Quantum theory recognizes the complex association of interdependence as fundamental to reality. All of existence self-orders into a purposeful, yet unpredictable pattern. Science, however, “discovered” this reality long after it was known to mystics. In the study of spirituality, the manipulation of energy is fundamental. Directing energy in a powerful way through intention can be used for both good and evil. People can be harmed or healed through words that carry powerful intentions.

- Life Experiences – Choice – Karma – Unconditional Love – Part 2 (mediumsworld.wordpress.com)
The first time you really experience a synchronistic event in your life, you feel a real sense of wonder and awe. It can be difficult quite simply because you get so excited about it that you want to tell everyone, and more often than not, you’ll get blown off and people will discount it as a coincidence.
As synchronicity keeps happening you begin to get that sense of destiny I love to talk about so much. You begin to see the order that lies beneath the surface of what we think is a chaotic and random world. You begin to feel a sense of safety and your faith strengthens.
You ride the wave and wonderful unexpected things happen, life clicks into place at all the right moments. You find yourself in the right place at the right time and you start loving the simple act of living.
Then one day you wake up, expecting the trend to continue and wham, there it goes. Your winning streak runs out.
You look around at things suddenly taking the opposite momentum. Your tire blows. Your boss hands you the pink slip. Life gets tough again. You wonder, “gee, did I do something wrong?”
Sometimes the answer is yes, you just took a big step in the wrong direction. You made a choice that was out of alignment with your destiny. When you do that, rebalancing is going to happen. You’ll receive as much displeasure as it takes to provoke you back along the straight and narrow. This isn’t a punishment. It is really nothing personal at all. It is simply a predictable way to get you back on track.
There are a few things I can assure you will cause this to happen with certainty. It may take awhile to show up, but it certainly will if you continue in these actions.
The most certain way to stop synchronicity is to dwell in thoughts of anger, judgement or fear.
If you’re paying too much attention to the news and your obsessing over the fine job our president has made of ruining our economy, or you’re worried about the gas climbing to 5.00 a gallon, or if you just can’t get over an argument you had with your spouse and you brood about it, it will take you out of the flow.
Anger is the fear of not getting what you want, fear is the belief that something awful will happen, judgement is when you have to be right. All of these things impede the flow. The reason is you are taking yourself out of the now and either harping on the past or fretting about the future.
Synchronicity occurs when you are living in the NOW.
By accepting exactly where you are in this moment, you embrace the now. So if you are currently laid out with the flu, think, “This is wonderful, my body is telling me I need to relax for awhile. I must have ignored it too long. No matter, I’ll rest and take this time to enjoy my bed.” If you find yourself in the unemployment line, say, “This is a wonderful new opportunity to explore new avenues of expressing my talents.” By taking this positive attitude about where you are now, you allow the flow to carry you to the next step.
This is one the biggest secrets I used to survive cancer, bankruptcy and divorce. Trust me, this really works.
The Buddha said it is only the things we resist that cause us to suffer.
