When events appear to fit together perfectly in our lives it may seem at first that they are random occurrences, things that are the result of pure coincidence. The same thing can be said for Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit, who after the death of Prime Minister Pierre Charles gone from being the Minister for Education/sports to the commander-in-chief of our nature isle Dominica. Many people donâ€™t stop and realize these synchronous happenings. What if Prime Minister Pierre Charles was still alive, would he have cut diplomatic ties with Taiwan and go with China, would Dominica be apart of ABBA, and the list goes on. Though they are much more than synchronous happenings, but if we look at these synchronous happenings more closely they can us that the universe is listening.
Learning to pay attention to and linking the things that occur on a daily basis can be a way for us to become more attuned to the fact that most everything happens in our lives for a reason â€“ even when that reason in not clear right away.
When we realize that things often go more smoothly than we can ever imagine, it allows us to take the time to reflect on the patterns presented to us in our daily lives. Even events that might not at first seem to be related to each other are indicators that the universe is working with, not against, us. This idea of synchronicity, then, means that we have to trust there is more to our lives than what we experience on a physical level.
We need to be willing to look more closely at the bigger picture, accepting and having confidence in the fact that there is more to our experiences than immediately meets the eye. Being open to circumstances also means that we have to understand that our lives are filled with both positive and negative events â€“ things canâ€™t always go the way we want it.
While the majority of people in Dominica may not be able to see everything in our lives as being synchronous, we can certainly use the circumstances we are presented with to be more aware of how the universe guides us, and it will in turn make it easier to work more consciously towards our goals by our own action â€“ not of that of any government.
