A couple nights ago I had an unusual dream. In the dream I was visiting my hometown in New York State. I don’t remember the details, but I do remember the feeling and the energy of the dream. It was one of the most peaceful dreams I’ve ever had.

The next morning when I checked my email there was a letter from someone I grew up with in my hometown. He and I are about the same age, and our families were good friends when we were kids. But we hadn’t been in touch with each other for many years.

The details are not important, but our reconnection after so many years benefited both of us.

Was that a coincidence?

My spirit guides have often said there are no coincidences. According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, a coincidence is “The occurrence of events that happen at the same time by accident.” In that sense I agree with my guides. Nothing happens by accident. Everything is perfectly orchestrated by the universe.

Yet we all have experiences like the one I just described. So coincidences do happen. But exactly what are they?

I’m away from home this week. So we’re revisiting an article we wrote a while back, Snakes and Synchronicities.
