Inner Growth Word of the Day: Coincidence
Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition: (n.) 2. the occurrence of events that happen at the same time by accident but seem to have some connection.
Coincidence in a sentence: Sometimes a coincidence reveals itself to be a lot more than just pure chance.
Coincidence in action: When something happens to you that seems to be an accident, but at the same time you had been thinking about that thing; that is a coincidence.
Coincidence and inner growth: Looking at the coincidences that have happened in your life and how you feel about coincidences overall pursues inner growth because it gets you to explore those situations where your intuition played a role into something that came to be in a physical form. The two together bring your intuitive feelings to a level of awareness that enables you to identify and tune in to those feelings more.
Coincidence and inner growth action steps:
- In-depth self-exploration questions: What does it mean to me when a coincidence happens? How do coincidences affect me? Do I think about coincidences? What have I learned about life through the coincidences I’ve experienced? How have coincidences affected my relationships? What things have I learned about myself through the coincidences that I’ve experienced so far?
- List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with coincidence at the center and then list or put around it all the words that come to mind associated with it. From those words what coincidences that have happened to you come to mind? Write about the one that stands out the most in how it makes you feel and use the words from your list to write about the situation.
- Bring your awareness to your feelings about coincidences and take note of the ones that standout first. Why do those emotions standout, how do they flow, what do they say, and what other feelings do you feel, why do they standout less? As you go through these questions by focusing on the feelings, visualize a stream of water in one of your favorite lake areas. Watch the water and notice how it changes flow, current, even color, as you allow your emotions to come about and be as water in the stream.
