Does anyone have any interesting stories about synchronicity or coincidence? It seems to me that being aware of coincidences, even little ones, can give us glimpses into the deeper intelligence which is, in some sense, directing things. I've had a few lately, although haven't managed to find much meaning to them (yet).

Well,mere minutes ago I wrapped up work on a pic I hope to eventually sell, only to have an e-pal who knows nothing of it tell me she was going to work on the near-identical subject!

Oh God, my entire life is full of these.
I had always been fascinated with Italy and just started reading Casanova's biography, then realized my school had a study abroad trip to Italy, which was the only trip they held in years, I went and had a blast.
Also went to another country I had always admired. When I went there I had no plans as to where I was going to stay. Found a mutual friend there and lived at his place for half the trip then I had to find a new place. I was worried. Then I found another mutual friend who lived there and I stayed with the rest of the trip. It was awesome. I would have been homeless! Or at least spent a lot of money staying in crappy hostels or expensive hotels.
Recently, I've met experts and befriended them, experts in fields that I'd like to be good at as well.
It seems every time I set a goal, the world helps me with it.
I am training to be a competition power lifter. I am personal friends with competition level guys and personal trainers who I go to the gym with regularly, this has helped me immensely. And saved me a lot of money, now I can go by myself and don't really need help in the gym, but they really helped me off my feet.
Looking into becoming a certified personal trainer soon as well, but I need a better understanding of things, just because I'm fit doesn't mean anybody can just copy what I do. Nor does it mean everybody has the same extreme goals that I have.
I also have other examples of this which are a bit random lol. If I listed them all out it would almost seem like I had a genie following me around lol. Maybe I do?

First one that came to mind--walking home from school, I used to make random turns, following my intuition. Numerous times I ran into an interesting person I hadn't seen or spoken to a while. Not much came of it - just learning to listen to my intuition.
I thought . . . I'll start a band if I meet another guitarist and someone who can sing my lyrics. Then I met two guys I can easily refer to as "soul-brothers."
I've recently re-exerienced a few dreams, in reality, that occurred years ago.
Dreams, dreams, dreams.
I recently met a great person who cultivates my creativity and works to heal others - - the type of person I would call "ideal."
