Coincidences are startling when they happen to us because they are so unexpected and give us the feeling of something that is "meant to be." Have you (or someone you know) had an experience with a remarkable coincidence or instance of synchronicity? Tell us about it. Share your story


I went home to visit family in May just over a year and a half ago, i had been thinking a lot about my grandpa, he died when i was almost 3, i mentioned this to my mom, she ended up giving me his old watch, i noticed the time was 5:45 on it , when i spoke with my hubby i mentioned it to him ..we both had been noticing that time stand out in recent months, 4 months later my grandma had a stroke, i rushed home to be with her she died at 5:45 with my sister and i by her side. I ended up driving home with my mom back to my province, the day after we got there we decided to go shopping, we were in a 3 car accident, i exchanged info and i noticed that the guy that hit me his licence plate was 545 and his phone number was 545. Before my grandma passed i lost a friend to a tragic accident she died at 4:45 but with the time difference it was 5:45 also. There were more odd things what came along with my grandma's passing, there just isn't enough space to mention .

Was proud of the first bloomed Avocado's

I am a new tenant living @ this place for 7 mos. Avocado's started blooming for 2 1/2 mos.I was proud..One fell that I was proud of fell shortly after a few weeks on the tree. Eventually I focused on 2 avocado's that was growing near our back porch. Everyday I dotted on how well it was growing, and I looked forward on the day it would be matured enough to pick..Yesterday, I showed my neighbor whom I've known many years the baby avocado, and he was happy to finally see it. He and I both left separately to drive to do our errands. I was gone for 3 hrs. I also learned that my daughter also showed the baby avocado's to my neighbor's wife within that time I was gone and my daughter 26, came home with my neighbor's wife, then after the neighbor's wife went home. Her husband saw the avocado earlier, then an hour or so the wife saw the avocado's. All this time the avocado's were growing fine. I come home 3 hrs. Later and the 2 baby avocado's were laying on the grass below the porch. I di

newspaper new

This story happened to my grandfather some years ago. He was a farmer, he was watering the lands one windy night. While he was waitting the lands to be watered, a page of newspaper was being blown away by the wind and stopped near by him. He took the page so that he could read something and entertain himself and here come the coincidence, he was shocked when the page was carrying a picture of his friend, from the military service, that had just killed someone with a stone... Bear in mind, that his lands were miles away from the nearest town... How the hell that page of newspaper got to him???

weird lotto coincidence

A few days back I attempted to post an ad on craigslist yes my name is Craig as well. For some reason the ad would not post ad in the mean time I received a text message from craigslist giving me my secret access code. A still small voice told me to play the five digit number but my mother called me telling me that she was going to bed soon and if I wanted dinner then I had better get there soon. So I left and did not stop at the lottery stand to play the five digit code. Later on that night I checked the lottery website and lord behold to my horror the five digit number that I did not play was a winner! I was already in a bind which caused me to post the ads in the first place and I lost out on 425 dollars the money I needed. So I say to you all slow down and pay attention!

Well much later that day many hours after waking up and going about my day a friend gave me a ride to drop something off at the post office a few miles from my house. I came out of the post office it just got dark like 5pmand walking out the door I saw this tiny shiny washer looking thing on the ground it looked like maybe part of a pin I picked it up got a better look at it and it was a tiny diamond ring exactly like I the one I saw in my dream and I mean exactly so much I became confused and weirded out like first of all I am a 40 yr old lady the dream I had was weird in that I never saw a tiny ring like that I just dreamed it up and even if I may have seen one and subconsciously didn't take any real notice to it I never thought about it ever.
