Yeah, I guess you are real special. I guess you are in "contact with the universe", or, atleast, "higher beeings". They focus all their "astral energy" to provide you with correct answers.

It happens to me ALL the time. One year I had a student teacher in my classroom, and he was AMAZED at how often it happened to me. So I guess this isn't the experience everyone has. But for me, synchronicity is the rule, not the exception.
Baader-Meinhof is the phenomenon where one happens upon some obscure piece of information– often an unfamiliar word or name– and soon afterwards encounters the same subject again, often repeatedly. Anytime the phrase “That’s so weird, I just heard about that the other day” would be appropriate, the utterer is hip-deep in Baader-Meinhof.

Why are you acting like that? Why even waste your valuable time just to come onto a forum and belittle everybody's comments? Let me guess your a common sense thinker? Please. The greatest minds of history all though outside the box. Stop being so 1-dimensional. If you think we are crackpots for simply believing in a phenomenon that obviously does exist, then you can kick rocks. Intelligent responses only you ignorant child. I don't play like that, and I really don't appreciate it. If you have nothing to contribute to the conversation other than negative BS, then bounce, get to stepping. We don't want nor need you hear right now.
Now go find a corner to cry in.

Yes I too have noticed, and came to the same conclusion that it couldn't just be coincidence. One time comes to mind, I heard the phrase "theres no such thing as a free lunch" in highschool for the first time. The next two weeks I heard that phrase in commercials, radio talk, people talking around me, having conversations with people, it was weird, and then it kind of faded away. The examples I have go on and on. My explanation is that we are all connected sub consciously, and we have way more influence on others than we know of. Just the act of us thinking affects everything around us. For example me and my friend were driving to this patient faclility. While on the way he was telling me about a kid that we knew of that hung himself in his closet. His father found him after he returned from work, and there was a blink 182 song on repeat playing over and over again. Our conversation subject lead us to something else and we forgot about it. Later at the patient facility we had one of those long silences, not the awkward kind, and we both suddenly had the realization that the blink 182 song we were talking about earlier was now playing over the speakers in the waiting room we were in. This was not the usual type of music, this particular place played, and coming back to this place I have never heard the song again, but I do here some of the same songs I have heard there before playing. My explanation for this is the act of us thinking about that song, caused somebody at the patient facility to put this cd in the player instead of that cd, for a reason that they may not be aware of.
