For the past couple years, synchronicity has become a daily occurrence in my life. Whether it's 11:11, or just luck, i've had a lot of it. But, the past few months, synchronicity has become even stranger. For example, a week after buying my first TV for my room, and not even a day after my parents started talking about buying a TV, i won a 32" TV at prom.
Here's something that also happened that was just strange: At high school awards last night, i got the perfect attendance award. The same night, on a new episode of the TV show The Middle, Sue was trying to get the same award, and eventually got it but was absent on October 13. October 13 is my mom's birthday. Isn't that weird?
There's also been a few times where I've had close calls when driving. If i was just going a tad faster, or slower, i would have gotten into an ugly accident. But what makes this strange is that i had an urge to speed up or slow down beforehand.
I'm sure many of you have had synchronistic experiences, but has anybody else had more luck lately and more complex synchronistic events, rather than just seeing 11:11?edit on 27-5-2011 by mossme89 because: (no reason given)

I have had what I would characterize as "weird" BAD luck. And not just lately, but for the last year and a half. As luck does play a significant role in my livelihood (poker player), this has been rather obvious and undeniable. When you are on the bubble (about to make the money in a tournament) and you're 97% to win, and the ONE card that can bust you out (say the 3 of hearts) comes, it is certainly part of the game, and can be dismissed as variance (or an isolated instance of bad luck) but when that happens over and over and over again...you start to wonder.
I've also had bad luck in other areas as well, those are less easy to quantify and prove, as they are subjective. I think the universe doesn't like me very much lately. That's okay. The synchronicity in my life usually has to do with ironic blown opportunity and the like.
But enjoy your wonderful luck previous posters, I'm sure you deserve it.edit on 3-6-2011 by joechip because: clarification
