The word synchronicity comes from Carl Jung. I got to see the house where he lived when a client flew me to Switzerland.
Synchronicity is similar to serendipity. It means perfect timing. In other words, things happening in such unison that it seems like a miracle.
Synchronicity is how I came to believe in God. The circumstances that led to my recovery were so synchronistic that I felt some divine guidance in my life. One day I was an agnostic and then suddenly I felt as if some benevolent force in the universe had saved me. This opened up the flood gates. What had saved me? Who had saved? Thus began my great adventure searching for God.
My partner, Frank and I, are working hard on our relationship. Recently, after my most recent spiritual awakening, I began to change. I began work on not being controlling. I started trying to live in the moment which Frank is really good at.
I also started listening. The following is an email I sent to my son Karl about the synchronistic experience I experienced with Frank. It is May 2016 and Franks brother has just been put in hospice. God is helping us cope and also putting in motion some events that are bringing closer during this time.
Frank is having a hard time so I am trying to help him by being a supportive companion. As you know, I am a compulsive talker so I decided to listen as Frank is talking obsessively to cope with his brother's death. I am learning so much about the man God chose for me. It seems like a miracle. It is only recently that God has given me the power to to this. Remember I told you about my most recent spiritual awakening. God's timing is perfect.
God has been preparing us for this so all is in order. I have always had an emergency fund and now I don't. But the state will pay for the cremation and and our minister will give a church for free. All is well.
I never buy films. Never. But I shelled out money for the series the Bible. We already own it and Frank is watching now, finding comfort from this television series. If I had not bought it already I could not afford to buy it now.
I just found out that hospice has a aftercare program for the family. Up to a year. We will both need this. Frank and his brother are very close.
So all is in order. We feel God working in our lives. All this synchronicity makes us feel loved and taken care. What a blessing. God is good. So good.

As I have explained synchronicity is part of my belief in miracles. Here is another story of this. . .
Thank you for your generosity. I want you to know that it was not only a very kind thing of you to do, it was a sign from God. Let me explain . . .
After I posted this call for help that you saw, a member on the message board slapped me in the face. She sent me a long email about how she was turned off by me playing the victim to get money. I was so horrified that I deleted the post and had a good cry.
God, not wanting me to feel bad, inspired you to send me some money and when I got home from church your email was waiting for me. I considered it a miracle by way of synchronicity.
So, once again, my faith has won out over my fear of poverty.
I have come to realize that I need to work the steps again because I have had a serious relapse when it comes to my shortcomings. Here I write a book about change and proceed to relapse. Still I have my own book as a guideline. I just wrote in my blog about tackling one of my character defects (stealing). Years ago, I was in college and the professor asked, "Is it a sin to steal?" Of course I said "no" to rationalize my own stealing. So I asked God to solve this riddle and tell me whether or not it is a sin to steal. He answered me rather quickly this time. Sometimes he takes years. Anyway, I was sitting in church with my partner Frank and God told me (through my intuition) that stealing was a sin because it showed a lack of faith in God to sustain us. So I got my answer which made me feel so close to God and then just to make sure I knew he was watching out for me he had you send me all this money. I love sunchronicity and all this. I digress . . .
I would be interested in any kind of collaboration that you want. When God uses someone to talk to me I know he is meant to be in my life in a very profound way.
Do Not Worry
Matthew 6:25-34 New International Version (NIV) “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life. “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you; you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
