We Don’t Meet Anyone By Coincidence – 5 Types Of Synchronistic Encounters

We don’t meet people by chance. They’re meant to cross our path for a reason. They can either be our blessing or lesson.

They say every encounter in our lives happens accidentally. Well, I couldn’t disagree more. In this world, nothing happens by sheer coincidence. It’s like a phenomenon that defies any rational or scientific explanation.

Throughout our life, we meet people from different backgrounds.  Some of them stay with us forever and influence our lives to an extent that we could have never  imagined. Others cross our paths barely noticed and we hardly remember them.

Yet, each one of them has a purpose in our lives. For example, there are those who encourage us to pursue our goals and dreams and teach us how to improve ourselves both personally and professionally.

On the other hand, there are those who teach us that life is hard and that it takes a lot of mental strength and courage to withstand all the obstacles and problems life throws our way.

The people we meet can embark us on both wonderful and unpleasant adventures. Yet, both of them are important because they equally contribute to the beauty of the journey we call life.

Here are the 5 synchronistic encounters you’ll have with people in your life:

1. The ones that remind you.

Have you ever felt like you’ve lost the purpose of your life? Well, these people come into your life to help you return to the right path to your success and happiness. They remind and encourage you to work hard towards your goals and avoid all distractions that could make you deviate from the right path.

They usually share the same interests with you and they’re always there to remind you of your abilities and strength and to motivate you to keep progressing. These people usually stay with you for a temporary period, but their effect on your life lasts forever.

2. The ones that push you to grow.

These people are like teachers who come into your life to teach you things you’ve never thought about before. Oftentimes, they teach you difficult lessons so as to help you further your personal and professional growth. They help you choose the right direction to become the best version of yourself.

3. The ones who awaken you.

There are people who don’t stay long in your life but they still have a deep impact on you. This kind of people helps you to fulfill your passions and dreams. They motivate you to never give up. 

They encourage you to find new ways and take steps to reach your goals, no matter how high they are. They inspire you to never stop dreaming.

4. The ones who hold space.

These people stay the shortest in your life. You meet them every day and as soon as they cross your path, you forget about them. These are the people you meet at parties, on the bus, in the mall, or simply on the streets. You can have a small talk with them about everyday stuff, but you never make a deep and meaningful connection with them.

5. The ones who stay.

Whether it’s a family member, a friend, or your partner, these people are difficult to find, but they’re the most valuable people you’ll ever meet. These are the people who stay by your side and lift you up when you’re at your lowest.

They encourage you to do things you never thought you would be able to do. They usually share the same interests and goals with you and they always want the best for you.

In order for you to find these people, you have to be patient. But, once you find them, they’ll stay with you for good and you’ll see that they are definitely worth every second of the time you spent waiting for them.
