Join Dr Le Grice to learn more about synchronicity and the Jungian and Archetypal Studies specialization at Pacifica.
“In cases of synchronicity . . . it is as if the cosmos knows what we are thinking and feeling, that the cosmos itself is aware of our personal situation, and seeks, through a symbolic line of communication, to convey a message to us about our life. Consequently, synchronicities are often accompanied by a feeling of numinosity. Moments of synchronicity are pregnant with meaning and with mystery, evoking a sense of a barely conceivable order connecting the events of life. On encountering a synchronicity, the universe seems positively infused with meaning and one gets the sense that one’s own life, far from being inconsequential or random, is actually of tremendous importance. One feels at such times that the universe, or some organizing power behind the universe, cares about us, as it were, and that there is a greater purpose to what we are doing. For this reason synchronicities, on occasion, may come with the force of a spiritual revelation.”
