My exploration into the paranormal began with experiencing Synchronicity, a term coined by Jung. It's something widely accepted or at least perceived to be true conceptually, but many get caught up on what synchronicities are. Some say they are a glimpse into the spirit world, some think of it lightly as "you're on the right track." (Small fact) Synchronicity isn't a word you're computer recognizes until it is "Added to Dictionary." It's being covered up, just like Larson = gives it reason to suspect it may be true universally. But I digress.I have noticed that... not just ghosts, but paranormal phenomena in general. When I was a kid, weird things happened all the time, and you'd see reports on the news and in magazines. There were whole magazines dedicated to the paranormal, like FATE. And they were never short on articles. Nowadays... most of the paranormal is faked for views on YouTube, and simple events are inflated out of proportion, just to get that weirdness back--but it doesn't work.
I recall reading somewhere that Carl Jung stated that people NEED the paranormal in their life, as it makes them question their values and grow spiritually. Now... no paranormal, no spiritual growth.
Synchronicities are simply when energetic matches meet in real "waking life" 3Dspace/1Dtime perceived environments. Those energetic matches can be between people, a person and an event, or circumstance or thing. Anything mostly. The recognition of Synchronicity is really the "taking of the bait" that the Universe is responsive to Self, or Mind, which is the primary foundation to the study of Magick.
This reminded me of the TV show Stranger Things. They kids at the beginning of the series were playing the game Dungeons and Dragons. A game not displayed in a TV, but a board game that everyone cooperated with and rolled with "a luck of the di" the success of each imaginary decision they make in an adventure as they played ... or so I think that's what it's like. I'll probably never play one in my life time. Sounds fun though. Creating as your playing.Heck, people text each other eating a meal at the same table. Even when they ARE "together," they aren't.
Big difference from my younger days, when we'd "get together" every free moment. Of course, people had ethics and you could trust them back then--not something you can chance, now.
