Is There Such a Thing as Coincidence? A Law of Attraction Perspective…
When the unlikely or unexpected happens, people can often put it down to being a ‘coincidence’.
You’re thinking about the friend you haven’t seen in years, when suddenly they phone. You learn the name of somewhere new for the first time and suddenly the name is popping up everywhere that you go – on the front of magazines, on the radio, in overheard conversations…
Perhaps you connect with a stranger with the same interests as yours, in the most wildly unlikely of places? Or maybe only just this morning you were asking a friend about whether or not they believed in coincidences…and then you stumble across this post?
Major or minor, ‘coincidences’ seem to crop up on a regular basis. But the question is – is there really such a thing as a coincidence, or are these just examples of the Law of Attraction at work in our lives?
You Create Your Reality
Everyday encounters are rarely an accident. Whilst there are undoubtedly aspects of our lives that are outside of our control, our realities are largely the result of our unconscious wants and energies manifesting into the physical.
We are all the creators of our own lives. Consider yourself a mirror on legs…your life a perfect, ever-changing reflection of your most dominate thoughts and energies.
The point is that everything you attract into your life – every person, every object and every experience –has all been drawn into your reality by none other than YOU.
A lot of people will be asking, ‘so, everything happening in my life – even the really bad stuff – is my fault?’ No, of course not… it is important to remember that there will always be elements of our lives outside of our control. But it still remains that the vast majority of what’s happening in your life and how you feel about it is happening in response to YOUR vibrations.
This includes so-called ‘coincidences’.
We are all continually emitting a ‘frequency’, created by our thoughts, words and emotions. The universe is constantly responding to this frequency, orchestrating events and experiences to show up in your reality that match it…so when something ‘strange’ or ‘coincidental’ happens to you, ask yourself – is it really so strange that you’ve attracted this thing, person or experience into your reality? Or is this a perfect match to the energies you’ve been emitting of late?
It would be too drastic an oversimplification to say that literally every thing, person and event that we attract into our lives is solely the result of our thoughts and energies alone. There are other considerations to keep in mind; whilst we’re creating our reality, others are also creating theirs. We are all collectively working to manifest the lives we lead. You and a total stranger could be walking around with similar intent and energies, attracting you into one another’s reality – no matter how unlikely the circumstances. Alternatively, somebody else’s intention might require that the Universe puts you in their path to help their intent to manifest. There are endless possibilities, but there is no denying that in some way, they all stem from you.
Coincidence? I Don’t Think So…
It can be scary to think that everything in your life is happening in response to what you're putting out there. But choose to take this what way you will. One positive way of looking at it would be to recognize that everything is exactly as you’ve made it. So ask yourself…am I happy with the experiences coming my way? Yes? Then keep doing what you’re doing! Or am I fed up with the way things have been going in my life? Because if that is the case, know that you can do something about it – starting with a simple change in attitude and with thoughts that support your dreams, rather than resist them.
Do you have any examples of events or situations that others would describe as ‘coincidences’ but that you recognized to be the Law of Attraction in action?
