Coincidence or Synchronicity, What’s the Difference?

Coincidence and synchronicity are different but it’s very easy to confuse the two. All of us have extraordinary, timely experiences. We may even refer to them as accidents created at some point in time.

There are only two ways to perceive an event in your life – either as a coincidence or synchronicity.

The difference is that coincidence is a result chance or luck. But synchronicity implies the presence of the Universe at work in your life.

A coincidence is an concurrence of events that have no meaningful connection between them. On the other hand, we can define a synchronicity as a meaningful event. In other words, an event that comes with much deeper meaning or spiritual undertones.


When we consider coincidences two things are randomly happening at the same time. For example, you’re thinking about one of your favorite songs and BOOM, it’s playing on the radio. Another example is you’re in the middle of brushing your teeth and the water stops working. Yet another is you’re going on an outing with a friend and you wear the same color shirt. There is nothing that ties the events together, but they both happen at the same time.

And while twin flames may experience many coincidences in their daily lives, it’s really more about synchronicity within their connection. Twin flames may both want the same thing for dinner, but through their telepathic connection, what’s for dinner brings deeper meaning.


On the other hand a synchronicity is a series of events that are extraordinary. According to psychologist Carl Jung they refer to events that mysteriously occur in your life. These experiences are too significant to be mere day-to-day serendipitous encounters. They will occur more often when we’re living our soul blueprint and following our soul path.

All twin flames experience synchronicity in their lives. The reunion with a twin flame occurs through a series of events put in place by the universe. When twin flames meet it’s through a series of cosmic events ordered by the universe. There’s nothing random or coincidental about it. It’s all about a shared destiny, so nothing is left to chance.

The universe may move many things around to encourage your initial meeting with your twin flame. You may find yourself in a different place than you planned. But this is the very thing that has to happen to allow you and your twin to cross paths. Although it may appear to be a random event on the outside, something much more significant is at play here.

You need to be at that place, at that time, to encounter your twin flame. This is where the deeper meaning comes in. If you’re at your original destination, the meeting may not occur or be delayed months or even years.
