Tap into the Power of Synchronicity to Discover your Map of Destiny!

Updated: August 5, 2018

Do you know that paying attention to and tapping into the power of synchronicity is a way to hone in on your partnership with the Universe and create your destiny?

I know it appears I’m repeating myself as I have written about this many times in the past because it’s so important to underline especially these days. With all the turmoil in the world, it’s easy to only believe what appears to be true in that crazy environment where the media reports only the drama and very little of the amazing and good. We are in a time of great change and if we rely on only what we see and are exposed to we will only be responding to a sliver of the whole story. It’s easy to get stuck in the challenges. Yet there is a guiding principle that engages us through meaningful coincidences that Swiss psychologist Carl Jung called synchronicity.
No matter the temporary conditions, your intentions and energy are reflected through this invisible guidance. It’s kind of like the universe working anonymously on your behalf.

We’ve all had those uncanny coincidences at times. You think of someone for the first time in years and then run into her hours later. You hear people say the same seemingly random phrase three times in one day, and that phrase directly relates to a problem you’ve been struggling with. While in the grocery store you run into the guy you dated several years ago while you both lived on the other side of the country. A friend gives you the same book that your coworker recommended to you the day before.
While at first it’s easy to shrug off such mysterious events as eerie coincidences, they’re far more powerful than many of us realize. These synchronicities are meaningful coincidences that your soul attracts into your life to help you grow and evolve.
Synchronicities are confirmation of your limitless connection with Spirit/ Source/ Universe (whatever name you feel comfortable with) and the world around you. Imagine each of us has a unique living map of fate and destiny. You have your own unique path and, just like a road map, your path crosses with other paths. The moment of intersection is where coincidence becomes meaningful, and synchronicities are the signs that help guide you to your ultimate destiny. When you pay attention and intuitively take advantage of synchronistic events, life becomes easier and more purposeful.

I share many examples of synchronicities in all my books and blogs but here’s an example of one that was memorable I experienced. During one week a few years ago, I did readings with three different clients who all had children with the same kind of outer spectrum autism. As you can probably imagine, each client was very frustrated with his/her child’s diagnosis. I’m not very familiar with autism and finished each reading wishing I could offer each of them more guidance about their child. Later in the week, I heard from a popular book editor I’d emailed over a year prior to see if she had space to work with me. She apologized for not getting back to me and said she now had time to take on another client. Just the day before I received her email, I’d decided it was time to hire a new editor and received a message from Spirit to pay attention. Here is where it gets really juicy! In addition to the synchronicity of hearing from her just as I decided to hire a new editor, during our first conversation she mentioned that she had written an award-winning book about sensory integration disorder, which was just what all three of my clients’ children had been struggling with. Because of that synchronicity, I was able to contact my clients and give them more guidance and solutions. Isn’t that amazing? Here is something to do this week to pay attention to this phenomenon.

Synchronicities are happening all the time. You just have to open your eyes and trust. As you notice more synchronicities, more and more will happen in your life.

So, this week, I’d like you to start recording synchronicities in a journal. Take note of even small coincidences such as thinking about having a peanut butter sandwich only to discover your coworker eating one an hour later.
And, meditate! Meditation helps you connect with your intuition and, in turn, helps you tap into the All That Is, where synchronicities abound.
What synchronicities have helped guide you on your path? I’d love to hear your stories. Please share them and join the conversation.

In service and love,


Anything is possible when you open your connection to the Universe

    Thanks Colette

  • Brandy

    Thank you for your wonderful guidance! I see repeating numbers all day, everyday. 111, 333, 1111, 1212 and so on. Is this normal? Are my guides trying to tell me something?

    • Lynne

      Me too!!

    • Autumn

      Thanks for sharing your wisdom❤️
      Looking forward to oracle school.

    • Nicole

      That’s a sign of alignment with your Higher Self and the things you want to manifest in your life, saying to you: “You’re on the right track!”

  • Jaci_Sivley

    Thank you for this confirmation of what I already know. Perfect.

  • Brenda

    It will be good to write this in my journal, I know I can have them but at the end of the day often don’t remember, I remember going oh wow that’s amazing!
    So I will write it as it happens and go over them.
    Thank you 🙏

  • Ivana

    Thank you for your readings and your energy! I love the way you weave stories with the cards you get. Sooo inspiring!

  • Brenda

    Just came across one right now in this reading.
    I said to my grandson who is socially struggling at school
    It’s not your business what other people think of you.
    And there it is in your reading

  • Lee

    Thank you. We can always use a reminder. At least I can. ♡

    I wanted a change in my life, so I decided to go back to school. It’s not as easy as it sounds. I still needed to work and my current job was the same time as the program I wanted to get into. A couple of days later I was talking to my girlfriend and she mentioned that her job ( which I previously worked at) was letting her work from home. She told me I should consider coming back. I told her I’ll think about it and left it at that. Well about 30 mins later she calls my back saying that one of my former coworker was asking her if I would consider coming back. We were floored, because we just talked about that. Just to make sure I was paying attention to spirit, my boyfriend calls me a hour later to tell me he’s driving by my previous place of employment.

  • Elle

    Sharing this with my husband … Just yesterday, we were talking about synchronicity and meditation … and now your blog appeared💕

  • Ann

    Had so.many synchronised events such as i thought of my niece who just died.. Then suddenly the music at her wake was played in a radio statio.

  • Anne

    Baffled. One day last week my daily card was “ not for you”. Problem is, I had only asked “ what do I need to know today to stay to stay in alignment?” I was not asking about a specific situation or thing. How does one interpret that? I was tempted to hide under my blanket and stay there as if this very day was not for me. 😧

    • Colette Baron-Reid

      cards reflect your dominant energy and show you things that are hidden. Next time pull another card to clarify. We teach this in Oracle Schoo. doors open in September!

  • Collette

    Thank you so much once again very insightful as always. Just what I needed today.

  • Kathryn

    Hi Colette! If you didn’t discuss synchronicity today this would have fallen threw the cracks. Just this morning I wrote as an answer to a question: How do I get my spark back. After your forecast I picked 3 cards & the 3rd card was SPARK. I am going to keep a journal now on coincidences.
    Also when I go to your Pick a Card decks they only have a limited number of cards to pick from & not the whole deck. Is this correct?
    Thank you! Love your teachings!

  • Andrea

    I’ve experienced synchronicities that were really cool, but nothing ever came of them and I couldn’t figure out why they happened. What is the reason for this? Is it just telling us we are on the correct path?

  • Marianne Bradley

    I have been at my job for 4 years part time . Lately I ha e not been happy at the direction the company is going . I wondered if it is me or am I expecting too much from something that doesn’t challenge me much any more . I met a woman who was applying for a credit card and she like me so much she wanted me to apply for her job she just got a promotion from . Now I am standing with an application and am wondering if I should . We both admitted we got chills when we talked about this so I will let you know .

    This is about the 10th time Ive seen or heard to meditate. Even though I know this what i supposed to be done Ive been half assing it. Time to listen.

  • Kari

    Here is a wild one for you that had all of us going “That was weird!” I was at my mom-in-law’s house cleaning out a bedroom that was full of 20 years of junk from items my brother inlaw left behind when he moved out to toys my kids used to play with when visiting grandma. Suddenly there’re was a knock on the door and an old friend of my MIL came for a visit, something she had been thinking about for a long time and finally got around to since her sister was also here from her far off home (in another province.) They sat down upstairs to reminisce old times and at the same time I picked up a dusty old postcard from the bedside table in the bedroom. I turned it over and was shocked to read a short note this very same visitor had written over 30 years before and sent to my MIL when she and her new husband were on their honeymoon! Of course we had to take it upstairs and show it to the ladies who were as surprised as we were to find this little memory from the past at the most opportune moment.

  • Tracy

    I love this Blog! I Thank you for the reminder of the importance of synchronicities. In fact this blogs message is part of one chain of happenings I’ve been following in my life at this time. So fun! Thankyou for your part in my stream of synchronicities, for being a part of my story in motion.

    Have a wonderful magical day!

  • Jill

    My husband and I experienced so many synchronicities that we got engaged on our first date. We’ve been together almost 13 years now. With each year that’s passes, it becomes clearer that our souls are meant to be in partnership with each other.

  • Hope

    I recently started a new job. My first day one of my team members asked me if my maiden name was “……………” I was surprised to say the least. turns out we were in home room together through high school. The woman that I report to asked me where my husband worked. Her son works with my husband! Her husband also worked with my husband years ago! Turns out the manager of one of our depts. BIL is my husbands supervisor! Also turns out that I went to middle and high school with one of the drivers on our team. Last but not least, I went to middle school with one of the newest members of our team! I can only think that all of these connections means I am where I am supposed to be!

    Thanks Colette for your timely reminder that again drew my attention to something that happened , another haha Synchronicity ! Two days ago a random quote popped up by ANAIS Anin ” To remain in a tight bud was harder ……..than to risk blossoming ETC . Then a video popped up from a totally different place and after listening to this video I researched this author and then through that led to a book I liked the look of I down loaded it and coudn’t put it down. Inside the book was that exact quote !!!!!

  • Sherry Thodos

    Thank you for your wonderful work and guidance. I wish many more blessings upon you!! I sure enjoy reading your blog and all your writings.

    The most bizarre synchronicity happened to me last week. I joined a dating website in early April. Went on 5 dates and then decided it really wasn’t my thing. Met some great people. However, the dating site continues to populate the latest connections that could possibly work for me and my criteria and I simply ignore this email and delete it every day it appears, without even opening it although my profile is hidden.

    Last week I logged into email, and without paying much attention the first email was the usual dating – blah, blah, blah, but the email opened to show all the candidates this time. The first person was someone who matched me with 92% in common and a guy I met in early January of this year, that I went on a few dates with and nothing much came of this. I was surprised to see he was on the dating site as I had not ever seen him there before and he said he was taking a break from all the dating.

    But he is obviously still searching…. In my effort to figure out the settings to stop the barage of daily match notices, I turned my profile back on, where another former date (from the 5 I had) reconnected with me and said hello again. We started catching up, talking about biz, etc., and although I suspect he is still interested, he offered me the use of an office space to aid my new business, as his company has empty vacant offices sitting unused.

    A total Godsend!! Exactly what I’ve been praying to spirit about. How this is gonna work? I have no clue, but somehow and lo & behold… poof, just like that – an office appeared. I am forever grateful for the use of the space. Not sure if it means for a romance with this kind generous individual or Mr. 92%, but maybe that is/isn’t part of the synchronicity here… who knows?!!!

    I am just soooo thrilled about the office, the forward motion of my business, and that Spirit delivers the answers, in the most humorous ways!!! Now maybe Spirit will deliver that perfect person for a lifetime love partnership next?!!! hee hee….

    My best, with love & hugs,

    My intuition was always on target. I’m referring back to several years ago. I was 19 at the time. I had just moved from my parents home into my first apartment. An old boyfriend from high school was writing to me. Every time I would go to the mailbox thinking there would be a letter from him there always would be. I never missed one time. This went on for a year & a half. To this day, I still think about that. Very nice, but also a little eerie. My intuition is not very great now. Especially with the relationship I am currently involved in. Apparently, it went to sleep for good. Or maybe it took a very long vacation. If that is the case, it needs to come back soon. I’ve also had my share of talking about an individual that I hadn’t seen for quite sometime. All of a sudden I hear from them by phone or in person as well.

  • Bradley

    I could write a book about the synchronicity I have been experiencing lately, so I will start writing down the most meaningful ones. The webinar was great, thank you xo

  • Shar

    How does it work when all doors appear to be closing: life seems to be blocking you from going in a certain direction (appointments not working out; travel arrangements delayed, etc., ) but you feel like you are supposed to go in that direction? In other words, you want to go Route A but there are roadblocks and diversions one after the other. Is Spirit protecting you? Or should you surge through and follow your heart?

    • Colette Baron-Reid

      i’d say you’re being steered in another direction until those other doors open if they are meant to.. could be its not time yet.

    Hi Colette;

    I often get synchronicity and serendipity confused. I’ll share a story that happened. I was at work when I was having a conversation with a client. The topic was about the astronomical price people were paying for tickets for an upcoming concert by Barbra Streisand. It was unbelievable to me that they would be willing to pay over $1000.00. Much to my delight and total shock; the gentleman said he had an extra ticket for the concert and asked me if I would like to attend. It was a single ticket and his company had bought a block of tickets and made a significant profit already. He said that he would prefer to give it to someone that he knew would really enjoy the gift. Well he couldn’t have made a better choice. I had admired Barbra Streisands’ voice since I was a teenager and knew all the lyrics to her musical repertoire. At that point he said that the ticket was on his dashboard and his car was just parked outside, so he would go and get it. Well I didn’t know what to say, except being it the right place at that moment, opened the doorway to receiving the ticket and attending the most memorable concert. I still have the stub. It was a miracle to me that this occurred. Nonetheless, I was so grateful, and enjoyed every moment of the event. I think this is synchronicity. Being in tune with the keys of life.

    Thanks Colette!

    Just when I had decided to start my own creative services business, I saw you were looking for a copywriter and took it as a sign – along with your “you’re already doing it” and “pillar of light” oracle cards. And although it didn’t pan out, it has set me on a new path and set the wheels in motion. I am still in the process of setting things up and plan to launch once Mercury retrograde ends and the energy is more favourable.

  • Veronica Abreu

    Hi! Thank you for sharing the secrets to manifest and I was writing my intentions and ended with: helping others by being a light.
    Then I saw the free oracle and tried it…. the 3rd card was “The queen of the light”… amazing synchronicity!! <3
    Feeling optimist.
    Bless you!

  • Pritti

    I keep on seeing a lot of double numbers especially on the clock: 22.22 22.55 22.11 14.14 16.16 13.13 11.11 …..I see them several times in a day but just don’t know what they mean. I just say thank you.

  • Gigi

    I’ve always experienced synchronicities but recently they’ve been unreal! I said I need to tap into them on a deeper level and came across this read. The synchronicity in that is Colette is my mother’s middle name and Baron is both my father’s middle name and half of my business name.

    Definitely confirmation! I will be starting a synchronicity journal this week and make a point to mediate on each synchronicity when I experience them. Thank you.
