Does anyone here have any experience with a "rampage" of amazing coincidences (such as what Carl Jung dubbed "synchronicity"), sometimes directly related to a sudden thought, but which do not seem to be a vibrational match with anything you have asked for, or know that you desire? And which do not seem to have any connection or correlation with one another?
Is this an indication of something deeper or more universal that is occurring, rather than a manifestation of desire or a request? Or does it have to do with something else?
One thing that I can say is that this does not seem to happen to everybody (several people have told me I was crazy when I tried to discuss it with them), and that I can never remember it happening to me before the age of 28.
Many thanks for considering my question.
Everything is connected to everything else. Nothing comes out of nowhere. There are no vibrational discontinuities in this universe.
But the connection is not necessarily a physical connection that we can observe with our physical senses, but a vibrational connection.
It's easy enough to prove this to yourself.
At the end of the day, you'll find that you probably have done a collection of seemingly-unconnected things. But actually they were not unconnected at all :)
All those things you did were vibrationally connected to each other, not necessary physically connected.
And if you did follow those instructions and always did the most "exciting" thing in the moment, you'll just have had your most vibrationally productive day ever :)
Regardless of what your logical, goal-setting, analytical mind tells you, those seemingly-unconnected things will have moved you further towards your desires than anything else you could have physically done today. (For further information on these ideas, see: How can I become more disciplined and consistent in whatever I do?)
So, similarly, nothing that happens to you can come out of nowhere. You may not physically comprehend, from your limited mental perspective, where it came from but it is always vibrationally connected to what has gone before.
Regarding the examples you've added, have a read through this snippet from Abraham and it might give you some ideas about how these meaningful "coincidences" work.

Based upon the limited information you've provided, here is my reply:
When you initiate change in yourself, your higher self you may bring experiences to you which don't seem relevant or related to your desires or what's currently on your mind.
Many people, who’re on the path of self awakening, suspect or believe that they’re being tested in some way by life or the Universe. And while that’s true it’s probably not true in the way most people think it is.
Similar experiences as you had before might be presented to you, in order that the physical you can test to see if you’ve really changed or not :)
Edit: added everything below this line:
Hello lozenge123, I’ll illustrate with an example of ‘how’ and ‘why’ we test ourselves.
Previously I eagerly jumped on board with a group of people who were involved with ‘real estate sales,’ because I wanted to make a lot of money quickly. Even though I had strong feelings which told me NO, this is not a direction that will best serve me; I did it anyway and consequently lost ALL of my money over a two year period. So in a sense I wasted both time and money.
Five years later I put out a request for opportunities to make more money. Within two weeks I bumped into a friend whom I hadn’t seen for five years or more. Within five minutes of talking to him, he offered me a position as director of sales for a ‘real estate development’ that he was in the process of starting. Based upon my request, I was excited by the synchronicity :)
However, due to my previous bad experience, I didn’t jump on board without first doing due diligence regarding my friend and his project. During the course of the following two weeks my friend demonstrated several things through his behavior.
He failed to return several calls or reply to text messages and emails. He changed every appointment to meet me at the very last minute, even though he’d made those appointments. He often seemed vague and even asked me to wear different clothes when meeting with his clients. Overall he’d demonstrated many of the traits of the people I’d worked with five years ago.
Each time he acted in ways that were out of alignment with who I am, I almost disappointed myself from him and his project. But at the same time, I thought wait a minute: I asked and this is what came to me, so it must be a part of my path. However, eventually I realized that this was a test that I’d set up for myself to see if I’d really changed during the past five years.
The truth is that it really was a part of my path, but not in the way I’d first thought. The lesson I’d learned here was to do with discernment. I realized, through his actions, that he would continue to keep me waiting, not respect my time and continue to change things, even things he’d implemented. My feelings told me that that’s not the path that will best serve me.
I emailed my friend and thanked him for showing me what I don’t want. The moment I got the lesson and passed the test, inspiration and ideas started flooding my mind pointing out a new direction that will serve me best. I knew by how I felt that I really have changed and that I have a deeper or more solid connection to my higher self. And that’s wonder-full :)
I am also a bit unclear on the OP question, but will give my interpretation.
We can have focused desires, i.e., we want a new red sports car. The LOA goes into swing and we draw red sports cars (not green, or blue sedans) into our experience. When we find a great deal it can seem like a coincidence. And we get the red sports car.
But if we are sending out a desire for a better lifestyle, or greater happiness, we attract a much broader field. As the LOA brings us events, manifestations, people, whatever, that can contribute to a better lifestyle, it seems like synchronicity. Seems like goodies have come to us without our specifically asking for a particular, specific goody.
Personally I am asking and allowing Source to bring me happiness/connection with Source. I don't care about how this happens! Asking for specific manifestations may limit Source.
Years ago I wanted a car, I asked for something cheap, reliable, could be a bit rough, I might need to do a little maintenance, but it would get me around. My conditions were limiting Source!
I seemed to hear Source say, "Oh well, ok, let me move the new, beautiful cars I had waiting for you to the back row and dig out that old clunker you are asking about, so you can have fun working on it!" So I changed my "ask" to a car that I would be very happy to own. A much better car appeared at an incredibly good price.

Just had to share another experience...last night, coming into my apartment, I passed a neighbor who had just dyed her hair completely purple, which I thought was unusual, and mentioned it to my fiance. About two hours later, we were watching "Flight of the Navigator" on DVD, and there was a conversation in the movie about Sarah Jessica Parker's character dying her hair purple. Another example of synchronicity that is meaningless to me, beyond the fact of the connection between the two occurring phenomena. (I have made no manifestation requests relating to "Flight of the Navigator" or purple hair.

Welcome to the wierd and wonderful world of synchronicity. Dont you just love it when things like that happen.
You will find that once they start they will carry on as long as you pay attention and expect them to happen. Because a person experianced synchronicity one looks and pays closer attention albeit unconsciously. In fact one is somehow aware of things one would normaly miss.
In my own experiance if I see a car with numberplates 777 for the next few weeks I will see 777 all over the place. It doesnt mean that this wasnt happening before but simply that now my attention was hightend and and I would notice this where as before I simply didnt.
Than there are those coinsidences that have special meaning. In otherwords messages especialy meant to help. When this happens it is almost as if there is an invisible something or someone helping. I love these the most. Your communication with source can also come in coincidances so pay attantion and try to figure out what they are trying to tell you.
