According to Vedanta, there are only two symptoms of enlightenment, just two indications that a transformation is taking place within you toward a higher consciousness. The first symptom is that you stop worrying. Things don’t bother you anymore. You become light-hearted and full of joy. The second symptom is that you encounter more and more meaningful coincidences in your life, more and more synchronicities. And this accelerates to the point where you actually experience the miraculous. (Deepak Chopra, Synchrodestiny: Harnessing the Infinite Power of Coincidence to Create Miracles)

Inspired by Mr. Gérard Henri Loiseau, Associate Director at Oxford Leadership Academy, who gave me valuable feedback upon one of my previous posts, I started doing some research upon the term “synchronicity”, the meaning of which is well explained in the following short YouTube video:

After having watched the video, spend a moment to reflect upon synchronicity. Have you had any similar experiences in your life? If yes, I would very much like to hear about them/read your comments. If not, make it a regular practice to focus in your mind upon expanding it, making space for synchronic events to occur – and see what starts to happen as you shift your thoughts and your way of thinking. Our minds work in miraculous ways, and there is a tendency for miracles to happen as soon as we make space for them to manifest in our lives.

Synchronicity, the roots of which are grounded in primitive magic, has always existed. Although a suspect concept to “scientific minds”, synchronicity has been widely practiced and researched across the world, not only in primitive cultures having a firm belief in sympathetic connection comparable to modern-day telepathy – in fact, Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961), a Swiss psychiatrist, psychotherapist and founder of analytical psychology, created a concept out of synchronicity in addition to his work upon collective unconscious, archetypes, extra-version, and introversion (part of his psychometric instrument The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator).

Pythagorean sympathy of all things, Taoism, ESP, and iChing give additional insight into synchronicity and synchronous leadership practices.
