This is Ep 125 – MANIFESTING THE SYNCHRONICITY YOU NEED. Have you ever wondered if a new direction in life is right for you? And wouldn’t it be great to have a sign to confirm or deny it? You can actually manifest a synchronicity, a sign, a rare coincidence, a serendipitous moment to help you make decisions. Here’s how.
Hi, I’m Carla Rieger, and this is the MindStory speaker podcast.
Now, the concept of synchronicities comes up in my new novel, Helio Tropez, whereby it indicates a shift in timelines. Some people have been interested in where this concept comes from so I wanted to dive into it here. More info on the novel in the shownotes. So, think back to a moment in your life when a bizarre coincidence occurred, and it left you feeling entirely astonished, the odds of its occurrence could have been very low, or even next to impossible. Coincidence and synchronicity are both defined as striking occurrences of two or more events at one time. The difference is that a coincidence is perceived as chance or luck. While synchronicity implies the presence of a deeper intelligence at work. It was Leonardo da Vinci that said, learn how to realize that everything connects to everything else.
Many people have an awareness of what the term synchronicity means in general terms. But in many cases, this can be confused with unusual yet timely coincidences, accidents that seem as though they were by design. So how do we know the difference? A growing number of people believe that to experience a synchronicity is like a powerful nod or a wink from the universe telling us that yes, we’re on the right track. Synchronicity is also believed to be a form of guidance from the higher self, a way of showing you where the path lies. Many traditional or mystic faiths talk about the fundamental connection of all living things within the universe. The concept of synchronicity eliminates the accident. But can you actually help manifest wild and wonderful synchronicities big or small, or do you have to just wait around hope?
Some belief that synchronicity is a manifestation of environmental harmony. So, what if you knew how to create environmental harmony? The term synchronicity came into popular use via psychotherapist Carl Jung, he too often experienced what many would consider as meaningful coincidences in both his life and during sessions with clients. Jung’s original version of synchronicity introduced recurrent images and ideas, archetypes, tying us to other dimensions where dreams come true or where omens accurately predict the future. He also believed that synchronicities mirror deep psychological processes that carry messages the way that dreams do, and take on meaning and provide guidance to a degree. Dr. Jung didn’t define the principle of synchronicity because he was a mystic or psychic, but because after years of working with patients and bearing witness to the events of his own life, it became clear to him that there appeared to be a mysterious underlying kind of field affecting a whole different level of experience.
While many people and educators do recognize the phenomenon of synchronicity, there are many different ways of viewing it. The law of attraction theory states that good and bad events in life are caused by your thoughts and your feelings, what you are manifesting, and because like attracts like — synchronicity occurs. Others attribute the experience of synchronicity to psychic abilities, where we intuitively know that a certain person will call us or a significant event will befall us and then it does. That could also be something of the unconscious mind at work here. Or some people get warning messages in their dreams. Our unconscious mind influences a lot of our behavior and at the same time can also communicate with us. Signs and omens or instances of synchronicity could be the unconscious minds way of guiding us.
Here are a small selection of examples of synchronicity that you may have experienced in your life. Seeing repeated numbers, especially master numbers, 11:11 3:33, and so on. Another one is that you may have been randomly thinking about a person that you hadn’t thought about for a while or even seen for a while. And then later that day you bump into them, or they call or they text, you could simply think about something and then it happens, making you stop in your tracks in astonishment. Or you may overhear someone talking about an event or saying something about something which in fact sounds like answers to the questions that you’ve been asking yourself recently. Or an answer to a deep question stirring inside you comes up in a song, movie, novel, article or video you watch. You might dream about a certain type of animal or place and then see that repeatedly in real life over the next week.
Other types of synchronicity is when you’re in trouble in some way, at an impasse, stuck, down on your luck. Then, Help and Support appear in your life when you least expect it from people you have never met before, or from those you’d never expect it from. Can you think of any other common forms of synchronicity? The best way to recognize your synchronicities is to think less and feel more. Listen to your intuition. By being in tune with your inner voice, you can understand the outer signs easier. And remember, synchronicity only applies if it is spontaneous, waiting for the 11:11 to appear on your clock does not count, you have to be genuinely surprised and to not expect it. Or at least, there needs to be a degree of unpredictability involved. When you’re having a dialogue with someone, you don’t control the other person’s words, reactions of thoughts, and you generally listen when the other person speaks. It’s the same with synchronicity and any other kind of guidance.
All that said, skeptics sometimes call synchronicity apophenia, or the practice of seeing connections and patterns in random and meaningless data. This is because humans are born meaning makers with a fondness for seeking patterns in everything they see around them. This is an unconscious coping mechanism that we use to make sense of the world and sort through the overwhelming amount of data that is thrown at us every second of every day. We notice and analyze patterns everywhere, in an effort to understand our environment, and to a small degree control it. behavioral economists would classify synchronicity as a form of confirmation bias. For example, if you’re told to look for yellow cars, you’ll start seeing yellow cars and realize there was a lot more yellow cars than you initially thought existed. But whatever causes it, an increasing amount of people do believe that synchronicity is far too common, and too intriguing to overlook, or quickly dismiss and forget about.
What follows are a few tips to help you tune into the flow of synchronicity and to understand the sacred experience unfolding all around you. That way you cultivates your capacity to receive, to notice synchronicities all around you more often. I believe the universe always provides you with exactly what you need for your highest growth in any moment, but if you aren’t ready to receive, you won’t. Sometimes growth has it’s own schedule. But, cultivating a greater capacity to receive means having deep courage to face the infinite potentials and possibilities your life might present to you. It means invoking the truth of what you are actually capable of handling at this time in your life. And it requires you to embrace whatever life delivers to your doorstep with an open heart and absolute trust that it’s exactly what is being called for at this time. So, to pay close attention, to simply pay more attention to your experience…is the key.
If you’re going to ask for guidance, you’re going to need to meet the universe halfway, especially during your time of seeking. Watch your environment a little more closely. You may be surprised what presents itself when you pay more attention. Notice patterns and symbols. At the same time, don’t overcomplicate things, sometimes the universe sends us the exact message that we need, but we miss it and go on searching for more. The truth is, the universe expresses a great deal of genius in simplicity. This can be difficult for modern humans to understand as we tend to complicate things. The bottom line is, if the universe tells you to turn right, don’t hinder yourself trying to figure out how and why and at what point to make the turn, just do it.
Give yourself permission to believe. One of the most common questions I get when working with people regarding signs, synchronicities, visions, dreams, or any other form of sacred messages. How do I know that this is real? Is this just coincidence? Is this just my imagination? The answer is simple. Your imagination and your reality are reflections of one another. Everything you are presented with whether it’s logically tangible or ridiculously abstract has meaning. Sometimes it’s overt and sometimes it’s vague. The language of the universe is symbolic. And our intuition is the translator. When we allow ourselves to deeply feel and believe what is being presented to us, the signs become clearer and more compelling. And we further strengthen our ability to Intuit them. In other words, you might need to play with the words, What If. What if I could see more synchronicities, what if could interpret them correctly? It’s like turning on the engine. What most people do is the opposite. They’re thinking – What if I don’t get any synchronicities, what if can’t interpret signs correctly? That’s like turning off the engine, dialling down on your capacity.
But more and more people are becoming aware that there’s this transition that needs to take place where people cross the threshold into another world. And that doesn’t mean that there needs to be a violent revolution, this is a revolution of perception, because from that, everything else comes, we live within a field of potentiality, a field of energy, vibration, which is all possibility. Everything that exists in this reality is a frequency, every thought is a frequency, every emotion is the frequency. And so if you believe that you are little me, and you have no power, then that frequency band that is generated by that perception of self will interact with the field, and you will create a feedback loop that will appear to you to be a self fulfilling prophecy, you think you are insignificant, you have no power, not because it’s true, but because you believe it is.
And when you open your heart and you open your mind, and you give yourself a new label, cast yourself in a new role, take on a new archetype, it’s like you’ve loaded the new software to be a manifestor of synchronicities and signs. That is when your band of frequency explodes, both in its breadth, and scale and in its frequency. And you start interacting with the field of possibility and probability at that level.
Often it requires making the ultimate vision of the life you were meant to live, more important than the fear. The fear is a catalyst, part of the alchemical journey, so don’t’ make the mistake of trying to pretend you don’t have fear. That just suppresses it, and then it can own you instead of you owning it. And so it’s common that during large tumultuous changes in your personal life or in the world are happening, that there are consequences you fear. This blocks your ability to manifest synchronicities, because your interaction with the field is dwindled down. So we are creating our own reality all the time, by our perception, the thoughts we choose to think, the meaning we choose to give to any given circumstance.
Sometimes what you need in the that moment is to ask the universe for a revolution of perception. And be aware that some people and systems around you would like to stop you from having a revolution of perception. It’s part of the school of life. If it were easy, you wouldn’t learn. So, if there are forces in place working to keep us in a state of low vibrational awareness, its also true that we can take that control back whenever we choose. And when we do, we are often shocked at how life changes and how all the consequences we thought would happen don’t actually happen.
Einstein was right when he said, reality is illusion, albeit a persistent one. So are we in a collective dream, or a matrix simulation more than an independent physical construct. The idea that physical reality is somehow its own independent thing is based on outdated science from the 1800s. For over a century now, quantum physics has proven that physical events are ultimately determined by metaphysical factors, meaning, reality is shaped by consciousness. Synchronicities are one manifestation of that fact.
Let’s look at a few. The 1st are forerunners. These synchronicities tend to show up a couple hours or days before a troubling, distressing or precarious event in your life. Almost like Rolling Thunder preceding an impending storm. That’s because the upcoming event is a messy, energetic spot on your timeline, and your corner of reality is becoming unstable in advance of it. Forerunner synchronicities also happen when your future is in flux. Like when you’re going back and forth on a major life decision that greatly affects your future. When the future is indeterminate, and massively fluctuating like that, it’s unstable. And so the present becomes unstable. Unstable conditions mean that improbabilities happen. Why? Well, according to quantum physics, what we call Normal Reality is simply the most stable, probable and predictable path that everyone and everything can take. So when reality becomes unstable, that means it becomes less normal meaning more weird, it becomes less predictable, meaning more surprising, and it becomes less probable meaning more synchronistic. So to recap, forerunner synchronicities are a side effect of an upcoming instability, which tends to be a distressing or precarious situation where the outcome is in flux.
The 2nd are nonconformity synchronicities which happen when you suddenly deviate from your most probable course of action. That means doing something genuinely improbable, something that in most of your immediate probable futures you didn’t do. For example, it can be something that goes against the momentum of your programming, your circumstance, your habits, and your feelings at that moment. You suddenly leave a stable job, you reach out to a person you’d never reach out to before.
Usually life is pushing you towards your most mechanical and probable outcome. So going against that means defying determinism. When you do something unlikely for an extended period, you deviate on to a less probable future. And this produces other improbabilities which we experience as nonconformity synchronicities. So whereas forerunner synchronicities come before an unstable area of your timeline, nonconformity synchronicities typically come during and after.
Now, one of the keys to understanding synchronicity is that probabilities tend to come in clusters. One improbability begets another. If you do something improbable, chances are that you will attract another improbability. That’s because you’re deviating onto an improbable timeline, that due to its probability likely contains other improbable aspects. This brings up an important point, which is that something outside this reality, something beyond linear time is needed, if events are to deviate from their default outcome.
Without that metaphysical factor, everything would be mechanically deterministic. Everything would be simply be cause and effect. It’s like a domino knocking down the next domino from the beginning to the end of time with no surprises or deviations. For the dominoes to change direction and touch off a new chain, a hand must reach down and rotate one so that it falls into a new line. That’s what happens every time we exercise our freewill. So consciousness is the non physical factor that creates some probabilities. Or as quantum physics would say, the conscious observer is what produces synchronicities. What this ultimately means is that the more sentient you are, the more agency you have, the more of an improbability you represent in this world. And since probabilities beget more probabilities, the lives of such walking anomalies are anomalous.
A 3rd type is called expansion synchronicities. These happen when we go through a significant moment of spiritual growth or transformation. That includes going through a period of insight and revelation regarding higher truths about existence or about yourself. The sudden change in your being, your essence acts like a bubble suddenly expanding and sending ripples out in all directions. Not only is that an improbable event, where you’re shifting to a new set of futures that cause a change in your personal characteristics, but your being is expanding and perturbing the very fabric of existence.
These things can induce expansion synchronicities. They tend to be symbolic, linked at the archetypal level to the nature of the transformation. So some people even use a dream dictionary to decode them, as the archetypes exist at the subconscious level, which is also where dreams derive their symbols from related to expansion synchronicities.
A 4th type are message synchronicities, also known as signs or omens. They’re like dream symbols, except they happen while we’re awake. As I talked about earlier, that can be a recurring number you keep seeing, or a certain animal or insect or anything really that fulfills a function of a sign that conveys a meaningful message. Message synchronicities can be encouraging in the sense of confirming a decision you just made, or letting you know that all is good and that you’re going in the right direction. Or they can be foreboding in the sense of giving you a heads up that something bad is about to happen, or that there’s a harmful person or influence in your life, or that you’re treading down a dangerous path.
Now message synchronicities can be decoded like with dream symbols. The meaning may be universal or vary somewhat from person to person. The best way to decode recurring message is to log when they happen and the circumstances surrounding them. After several occurrences, you can connect the dots and guess at a meaning. Then you can test your guess the next time the same message synchronicities arises. Once you decode your recurring message synchronicities, you can use them as reliable indicators of what’s happening, or what’s coming up.
Now, what about times when you’re only getting negative message synchronicities, bad omens. That means either you’re heading in a dark direction, or a darkness is heading towards you. If you’re going in a dark direction due to unwise choices, check yourself and make corrections. If darkness is going towards you, be vigilant and take preventive measures to head off whatever is about to erupt in your life. The fact that message synchronicities can even happen shows that there’s a strong connection between waking reality and dreams. The connection of course, is that both are ultimately generated by consciousness. The difference is that in dreams we are immersed in an environment generated by our own subconscious. While in the waking world, the environment is generated by a collective or universal subconscious, one that the ancient Greeks called the demiurge. If you think of it in terms of video games, dreams are like playing an offline game on your own PC. While reality is using that same PC to connect to an online multiplayer environment. The demiurge is the central server that coordinates the various locally run instances of the game.
So when Einstein said that reality is an illusion, albeit a persistent one, that is saying reality is made of the same stuff as dreams, but functionally, it’s more persistent due to the collective subconscious holding it in place. But since our personal subconscious is plugged into the collective subconscious, it can affect its own corner of this collective dream we call reality.
And so that brings up the 5th type, which is manifestation synchronicities. That’s where something you see or hear is a direct physical manifestation of a thought or subconscious wish you dwelled upon earlier. Of course, whenever that happens, the question is, was the event going to happen all along, and you merely had a psychic moment of precognition, foreshadowing it? Or did your thought literally cause that event to happen through an act of reality creation. Both are possible and both do happen. But the latter is what I mean by manifestation synchronicities.
They happen when you dwell on something in a certain state of mind, which causes your subconscious to influence reality and externally manifest a reflection of that part. The interesting thing about manifestation synchronicities is that the physical events needed to make them happen extend into the past, often prior to the originating thought. It’s as if you somehow influenced the past to shape the present. Sound impossible? Well, as it turns out, that’s completely in line with quantum physics, which has experimentally proven that a choice made in the present can reach back in time and influence the past. It seems the future isn’t the only thing that’s open. The past is open to manifestation synchronicities that don’t violate the laws of physics. Rather, they are a direct consequence of quantum principles. That’s something we put to use in my Memory Imprint Journal Course, which is also on our free tab at MindStoryAcademy.com.
Now let’s get into something we all need to watch out for, or the 6th type. These are artificial synchronicities. They seem like synchronicities, but actually aren’t. They’re staged for the purpose of deception to make you think it’s a sign from the universe. But really, it’s a ploy to negatively influence your beliefs and decisions. Now, I have to go off in a woo woo direction that might not be your cup of tea. If so, no harm no foul. Feel free to sign off here. Thanks for listening so far. But if you’re game, let’s look at this. It’s happened to me many times, and when I learned about artificial synchronicities, it really save my behind by knowing about them.
So they come from Non human entities. You might call them ghosts, demonic or negative entities, maybe even negative aliens. To give an example, a client once told me that an attractive woman bumped into him on the street. He was single and looking. They struck up a conversation and she end up handing him a book that changed her life, and suggests that it will change his, too.
And later that afternoon, he got an email from an old acquaintance that he haven’t heard from in years, mentioning the same book. Weird, hey? And later that evening, he saw a rare plant growing in a park that was featured in the book. He was totally taken in by the magical nature of these improbabilities and took it as a sign to pursue this woman, get involved in a cult that had formed around the author of the book…both of whom turned out to be psychic vampires spreading spiritual disinformation.
Now, believe it or not, this kind of thing happens more often than people realize. Dark entities fish for gullible people all the time by orchestrating and dangling artificial synchronicities like this. The thing to remember is that if both your logic and intuition indicates something doesn’t add up, you get a spidey sense that something is amiss, a nauseous feeling, a trepidation behind the excitement…pay attention. Don’t throw your inner compass and brain out the window because something seems attractive on the outside.
Another thing to note is that the negative entities who orchestrate artificial synchronicities are relatively crude in their abilities compared to the abilities of our own subconscious or higher self, or even higher positive beings on the level of what you might call angels. What negative entities do have in their toolbox is varying degrees of telepathy, and a basic Poltergeist or object materialization phenomena.
These are parlor tricks they use to deceive those who don’t know any better. For them, telepathy is the easiest. So most of the time, they just manipulate the thoughts and urges of people who are being mindless. So we have to be careful of that possibility and not blindly trust every synchronicity. Artificial synchronicities are bold, direct, literal, manipulative, and the biggest sign is that they play to our ego and wishful thinking.
And lastly, on a brighter note, the 7th type are opportunity synchronicities. They’re like artificial synchronicities, except they’re arranged by positive beings, including your own higher self. And they’re orchestrated with far greater elegance, finesse, poetry, and competence than what negative entities can accomplish. They’re the right opportunity at the right time to help advance your destiny, your story, whether to get you out of a tough spot or open up a new pathway in your life. Opportunity synchronicities can be very improbable, but they also seem to fall into place naturally and gracefully. So they are the epitome of serendipity. Opportunity synchronicities or lucky breaks act as a fun plot device to advance the story of your life. The signature of opportunity synchronicities is that they bring you a sense of relief and gladness when you encounter them. And intuitively, you feel frictionless and even enthusiastic about it. There’s a concordance and inner alignment from top to bottom.
Contrast this with an artificial synchronicities, where even when your ego is rubbing its hands with glee, deep down you’ll feel an emptiness or resistance.
Alright, so that covers some of the major types of synchronicities you might have forerunner nonconformity, expansion, message, manifestation, artificial and opportunity synchronicities. Don’t get too hung up on the terminology. What matters are the concepts, the reality, and how to apply this knowledge.
When you encounter a synchronicity, ask yourself these questions. Could it be a forerunner to something coming up soon? Did I just do something improbable that may have induced this?
Did I manifest this by dwelling on it earlier? Is this a message synchronicity – is it an omen? If so, what does it mean? If this is an intentional message, is it trying to steer me down a wrong path? Or is this a serendipitous opportunity that I feel completely at ease with?
And what does it mean when you don’t get any synchronicities for a while. You’ll notice that those are times when you’re moving along in a steady, predictable and unremarkable way in life. Alternatively, you could be so in tune with your higher self and subconscious, that these parts of you don’t need to edit reality to send you a message since they have a direct connection already. the surest way to banish synchronicities is to bury yourself in material mundanity and make no waves. Just keep your head down and stick to routine, which probably describes the majority of people today.
Now, in order to manifest more synchronicities, there are a couple things you can do. The first thing is to think about them more often. Embed this knowledge into your worldview as being natural and expected, and to adopt a childlike attitude of magic and wonder about reality. This neutralizes the effects of skepticism and mundanity that might be keeping them away. It also uses the manifestation principle by attracting whatever you’re resonating with and focusing on. Once you start doing this, you can simply let go and let reality surprise you.
The second thing you can do is grow and transform yourself through the power of insight, Revelation, and discovery. To do that, you have to spend more time being curious, contemplate introspective, fascinated, open minded and eager to learn. That means maybe journal, read, watch, observe, write and contemplate deeply on yourself and the world. That’s the exact opposite of approved of modern lifestyle that tends to encourage keeping so busy night and day that you don’t have time to do that. So it’ll be difficult for some, but it’ll be worth it for more reasons than just synchronicity. Because changes in your inner life, always produce changes in your outer life.
And the third thing you can do is identify what urges impulses feelings and thoughts come from your social and biological programming, and which come from your inner spiritual core and spiritual intelligence. The spiritual core, which is the seat of your sentience, and freewill is the only thing in you that’s not a product of matter, energy, space and time. Therefore, it’s outside linear time, and is capable of defying causality and probability. The more you act from your spiritual intelligence and to true intuition, the less probable the path you walk, the more improbabilities will be found on that path.
Alright, what it all boils down to is this. Millions of people have had genuine synchronicities and many have written about them for centuries. synchronicities are a personal reminder, that reality is something other than what we’re told it is. As time goes on, more and more people will begin waking up to that fact. It’s going to take science another couple 100 years to accept and understand this. But fortunately, you can access and experience that truth right now, by paying attention to your synchronicities.

So, just to let you know, this is my last episode of the MindStory Speaker Podcast. I’ve starting a new podcast called The Golden Age Timeline which will cover some of the same things here, but I am going off into more, what you might call Woo-Woo territory. I feel it’s important at this time in history, to start to acknowledge our intuitive skills to help us navigate these very confusing times. We can’t rely on external sources of information only anymore, we need to tap into our own wisdom, inner truth, and break free of mindsets, attitudes and mindstories that no longer serve, so we can take back sovereign control of our minds, our bodies, and our lives to, create the life we were meant to live…to move into the Golden Age Timeline that’s just on the horizon if we choose it.
I will bring on guests and discuss topics that might be controversial for some, but I feel need to be addressed, about what’s really happening in the world and how to best navigate our way through it in the best possible way for all concerned.
I understand if this is not your cup of tea. And if so, thank you for listening to this episode or any of the others that you have listened to, on the MindStory Speaker Podcast. And maybe we will reconnect at some other point.
If you’re curious about what I will cover, I hope you can join me. You can subscribe or just check out The Golden Age Timeline podcast on Apple podcasts, YouTube, stitcher, Libsyn, or of course our Golden Age Timeline dot com website and several other platforms. You just have to type in Golden Age Timeline and you’ll probably find it.
You’ll find an intersection of personal growth, emotional well-being, spiritual development and creative self expression…where we’ll be exploring many of the concepts found in the novel Helio Tropez. Check it out if you’re interested at GoldenAgeTimeline.com
So that’s it for today. Thank you for listening today and for being a listener on the MindStory Speaker Podcast. I’ve loved offering it and loved connecting with you. I hope we connect again at the right synchronicitic time.
