Basically you have a 10% chance of seeing those numbers. You experience confirmation bias, apparently it doesn't stick out to you when you see 2:35,
but 2:33 is shocking!
Synchronicity is bull.
I guess it was a matter of time, huh? (no pun intended
Well, this is the only "synchronicity is bull" post I intend to reply to in this thread, because it has the potential to derail the thread
For me it all began when I started meditating. At first, I started seeing the clock at strange times, like 11:11, 22:22, 3:33, 12:34, etc.. Didn't
make much of it at first, but as I continued to meditate more and more it only got more intense.
Now, at the time for some reason, to this day unknown to me, the clock on my computer kept getting off.. and my phone clock was 1-12am/pm (not 0-24).
I also had a wrist watch. When I was meditating regularly I saw 11:11 3-4 times A DAY. Now.. tell me that's normal. I mean really, what are the
chances of that? And I wasn't always staring at the clock either, although that's what one would expect to do when being baffled by these strange
"coincidences". Only then did I google the thing and learn that many people were experiencing this.
As I started to meditate less and less regularly, the less I saw the 11:11 (or any other weird numbers, for that matter). When I stopped meditating at
all I almost never saw it. In fact, as I randomly saw it was 11:xx (before :11), I gazed at the clock, wondering if I would see it. But, oddly enough,
most of the time my mind drifted away and the next time I took a look it was past 11:11.
This is why I believe there is something weird about the whole phenomenon. Now, I COMPLETELY, TOTALLY understand why someone who hasn't experienced
something like this would have a hard time believing there is something to it. I understand you. Hell, I wouldn't have believed it before. My paradigm
wouldn't have allowed there to be any meaning for such a phenomenon.
Now, the meditation-synchronicity relationship has been pretty consistent for me, personally. And when I did meditation it was rarely for 5-10
minutes.. it was DEEP meditation. Quite overwhelming at times.
Also, later on, other actions have triggered significantly more intense periods of synchronicity for me. In general, it has to do with my state of
I don't feel I really know what the phenomenon is all about, I consider everyone to be full of **** about everything, until my direct experience
confirms something. So I take it with a grain of salt when everyone tries to shove "It's your Higher Mind telling you you're in alignment" stuff.
Could be.. I don't know.. yet.
None the less, I have experienced enough to be quite sure it's not just the "if you look for a number, you'll find it everywhere in nature" ****
either. I didn't find it! It found me!
