why do so many coincidences happen to me
Chance, coincidence or, in the word of Carl Gustav Jung, Бsynchronicity,Б defined as Бthe simultaneous occurrence of two unrelated or acausal but meaningful events,Б definitely presents a serious challenge to the most fundamental assumptions or principles of science regarding the nature of reality. Newton believes we live in an orderly universe, one that is governed by predictable and immutable laws of physics, such as, БFor every effect, there must be a corresponding cause,Б or his famous Third Law of Motion: БFor every action, there must be an equal and opposite reaction. Б One physicist was quoted as saying, БGod does not play dice with the universe. Б
What is baffling and often leaves scientists scratching their heads are the numerous occurrences of coincidences which cannot be logically explained by any accepted principles of mechanistic Western science. БGeorge D. Bryson, an American businessman, made a trip from St. Louis to New York, stopping at Louisville, Kentucky, a town he had never visited before. At the station, he inquired for somewhere to stay and was directed to the Brown Hotel. He went there, found they had a room No. 307 and registered. Then, just for a joke, and because he had nothing better to do, he idly asked if there was any mail for him. To his astonishment and consternation, the receptionist calmly handed him a letter addressed to Mr. George D. Bryson, Room 307. БOn investigation, it turned out the previous occupant of the room had been another George D. Bryson, who worked with a firm in Montreal. Б (From the Supernatural Series, in the book БMagic, Words and Numbers,Б by Stuart Holroyd, published 1975 by the Danbury Press, a division of Grolier Enterprises, Inc. ) Acceptable explanation There has never been a universally acceptable explanation for the occurrence of coincidences. But several scientists, researchers and scholars have proposed the following theories: Jung believes coincidences happen as a result of the workings of our unconscious mind.
The connection may lie between oneБs psyche and the physical world. When we look at the causal connection from a purely physical standpoint, we face a blank wall. Another researcher and thinker, Arthur Koestler, in his book БRoots of Coincidence,Б proposes a principle well-known to mystics of the East, namely, that everything is connected to everything else; and that coincidences are not chance events but belong to a long series of connections in which we see only the beginning and the end and not the in-between. The Chinese have a saying that when a person opens and waves a fan, a whirlwind takes place in another part of the world. Or when one sneezes, somebody else gets a cold on the other side of the globe. Koestler, quoting Kammerrer, a follower of the Lamarckian theory of evolution, says that Бcoincidences, whether they come singly or in series, are manifestations of a universal principle in nature which operates independently from physical causationБ Single coincidences are merely tips of the iceberg which happen to catch our eye. Б Secret laws of nature Asian mystics and philosophers have long held that there are four secret laws of nature. One of these is the Law of Causality, meaning Бnothing happens without a cause. Б Just because we do not see the causal connection between events A and B does not mean there is no inner or invisible connection between them. The Law of Causality denies the existence of coincidence or synchronicity. According to this law, everything has a cause. Our problem is to find out where the cause of a certain effect lies. Western science has no clue how to answer this logical puzzle. Coincidences are like those Japanese koans or mental puzzles which cannot be explained by logic or reason. Here is a koan: Can you hear the sound of one hand clapping? To understand that seemingly absurd question, one has to bypass the logical mind which creates a barrier between things beyond physical reality.
To understand a koan, one has to embrace the absurd, the ridiculous and the impossible as mere parts or cogs in the wheels of reality. Most scientists dismiss coincidences as mere anomalies of nature which are not worth studying seriously. But Jung says: БI refuse to commit the fashionable stupidity of regarding everything I cannot explain as a fraud. Б Jung tries to explain all phenomena that cannot be accounted for in terms of physical causality as manifestations of the unconscious.

Since I was 13 I always wanted to be psychic tell the future and all the other things that came along the lines of that. Now I'm 17 and for 4 years I tried lucid dreaming (which was successful once) astral projection, telepathy, and telekinesis. Overall I never got anywhere but just continued trying. But recently I been getting a series of coincidences. One day I was at home and I just thought of a friend of my mother thinking, "She hasn't called for so long I wonder what's up? ". So I continued on with my day as usual then around 8 in the evening the woman called my mother saying she hasn't called in so long. My mom told me about it and I wanted to tell her that I was thinking about her today (my mother doesn't believe in anything psychic she thinks its evil or magic and she hates that stuff) but decided I wasn't going to tell her because it was just a coincidence. For almost three months I have been having these coincidences but I ignored them thinking its just a coincidence.
But a few weeks ago I was sitting in my room it was in the afternoon it was a Sunday so the maid didn't come she had to go to church. But she was going to come on Monday so I was just thinking "the maid was working for 2 weeks straight shes probably not going to come tomorrow she needs a break". The next day she didn't come. I was shocked thinking I was having to many coincidences happen. Then a few days ago I thought about another one of my moms friends I thought that woman hasn't called for a while wonder how shes doing, then a few hours passed and she called. I was like "omg" it was unbelievable how many coincidence I had in less than 3 months. Then just yesterday I was in my reading class and I just thought I bet the teacher is going to pick me next" and what do you know he picks me. I was so used to the "coincidences" that just when the thought popped into my head I started reading the next paragraph so I wouldn't make any mistakes because I was so sure I was going to read next. I also have been having so many deja vu's lately. It happened almost 7 times in February alone and before I would have deja vu once every 2 months or so. So does this mean that I have some psychic ability and how can I control it because it just comes anytime. Is being psychic hereditary? Because as much as my mom hates this stuff I think she has precognition because every time something bad happens in our lives she cries and says "I saw that in a dream". My mom believes if you have a bad dream you should never say it or it will come true. She told she has had over 40 something dreams that come true. My mom also has like this sixth sense. She has a feeling of something bad before it happens. Like this one time a relative of ours came to visit and the moment she saw him she said I have a bad feeling about this man. It ended up he put a virus in our computer that nearly shut it down completely. Could some of my moms ability have passed on to me somehow?
