We are five days into the PAD Challenge and yesterday, I experienced a moment of synchronicity that was profound. I am a firm believer in the process of writing. I believe that writing on a regular basis, deeply activates ones creative energies, and those energies attract the element of synchronicity. At least, that is how it works for me.
Synchronicity is when two or more diverse things: elements, thoughts, experiences, etc., come together and bring a light to our understanding that was not present before. There are those who define it as a moment of enlightenment, and I would certainly agree with that.
One of the reasons I continue to write is because that synchronistic energy is present when I do so. So this week, I’d like to hear about what you think of synchronicity, how it works in your experience, and if you have an experience, related to your writing, about such a moment of enlightenment.
I have not been readily present on the prompt circuit of late. The poetry was coming, but often with difficulty. So, I stepped back away and simply did what I could do. Then decided it was time to get back to the poetry, so committed myself to the PAD Challenge, hoping I wouldn’t fall flat on my nose in that attempt.
And yesterday, when several things came together, that would not have if I hadn’t been responding to the Challenge, I was deeply grateful. I had an appointment and during it, something was said that pulled up a deep rush of anger. I didn’t react, but simply acknowledged what was happening inside of me. Then this morning, when I went in search of the day’s prompt, it slipped with ease into that new awareness from the day before. So, I wrote about the experience and learned a great deal more in the process.
That is why writing is a corner stone of my life. And it’s why I will probably never stop doing it. It is a constant source of knowing and learning. Would like to hear how and what you think and feel about synchronicity in your own writing process.
