This is my first post, but I've been reading this forum for a very long time and I learned so many things. Thanks to everybody for sharing!

I'm shocked because something extremely unlikely just happen to me and I would like to know if anybody can give me a clue of what it could possibly mean.

About 7 years ago, I created a fictitious name out of thin air to represent a virtual assistant for a software my company uses. Let's say the name is Michaela P. Masterson. Today, my son's kindergarten teacher invited the parents to join a Facebook group for that particular class (about 15 kids) and guess what's the name of one of the moms? Michaela Masterson Purcell. What are the odds? I guess tiny...

I know it sounds stupid to ask what a personal synchronistic event might mean to total strangers, but since the average "enlightenment" level of this forum is probably much higher than mine and than that of my circle of friends, I'm hope someone might tell me what I need to hear. I'm not new to interesting synchronicities, but this event is probably the most unlikely of my life and I can't just leave it there...

Thanks for reading this!

If it's not immediately clear what it means (if anything) then just don't worry about it and get on with your life.

If it's something important, the Universe will find another way to tell you to make it clearer even if it has to do it time and time again in different ways until you get it.

Speaking generally, the worst attitude of mind for anyone to hold is that of fear or scarcity that someone's only chance at something will vanish forever if one isn't paying attention. Physical reality just doesn't work like that. But holding that attitude of mind can keep one out of vibrational range of noticing future "chances" for longer.

Somewhere on IQ I've previously mentioned how my wife and I got seemed like a series of amazing and unique coincidences to make it happen. And yet, even years after we'd been together, I suddenly realized one day that we had actually bumped into each other briefly several months earlier also (before we officially "met") but we had both completely forgotten about it and neither of us had "clicked" at the time. Clearly the Universe's Plan A didn't work out so it rolled out Plan B :)

The universe always has backup plan after backup plan to get the message across to you...if there is any message at all :)

Thank you, it makes a lot of sense. I'll start a small chat with the lady as Pankaj has suggested, to see if something comes up... I know usually it doesn't work if we push it, but it's worth trying!

@Stingray- Nice answer Stingray. Reminds me of the movie When Harry met Sally

I guess the message if there is one, is with that woman. You should meet her to find out. You'll find your answer.

Seth talks about the spiritual nature of synchronicities in his new books. He might say that the universe is trying to tell you that you ARE the Universe. You are All That Is. You are the creator and the created simultaneously. He gives experiments to prove that to yourself so that you begin to have these little awakenings to your connections to everything in your personal reality field. Over time, synchronicities become the rule rather than the exception.

One experiment: In a light trance state, with your eyes open, focus on a pleasant scene in your world, one that includes nature, trees, birds, and so on. Then create a positive expectation that you will perceive a particular event in front of you. Then when you prove your prediction by witnessing it, endorse yourself and make another prediction and witness that. Synchronicity creating, reality creating, proving to yourself that you are a part of everything and everything is a part of you.
