## Somehow positive sign

Lockdown gave me the opportunity to follow a childhood dream. I start painting again doing a serious dedicated to mental health. It’s shows the three steps of depression I went through after my partners suicide it culminates on a fourth painting about him, what aggravated his mental health and it shows on his own words how he was afraid to end the way it did. What motivated me to start painting again was/is to voice my discontent and disgust of how he was ignored. The coincidence is that six years ago, to this day he was thanking me on Facebook for the support I gave him to find the job he dreamed. Unfortunately, in the end it didn’t work out as it was a zero hours contract. Coincidence or not I see it as a sign of appreciation. So much for my atheism…

## Card trick

I have no experience in doing tricks, but wanting to be funny at my own expence, I took a pack of cards, shuffled them and handed the pack to a friend. I told her to cut anywhere but don;t let me see. She cut the cards, I told her to look at the exposed face card, and said 'seven of hearts'. It was a shock to her, but more of a shock to me as sure enough there was the seven of hearts. I was asked how I did the trick, but said I couldn't divulge my secret. No secret, just an amazing coincidence

## Mysterious 7's

I'll keep this short and only post my most memorable synchronicity since I have a lot of them daily with license plates. This event is what led me to learn of them. One morning on my way to work, I stopped at Walgreens to get a drink and a snack. The receipt came out to \$7.77. The same day, on my way home from work, I grabbed a meal from Burger King and the receipt came out to \$7.77. I believe I still have the receipts somewhere. Things like this are a common occurrence for me, but never have I had anything that was as convincing as this.

## Soulmates

I truly believe I’ve met my twin flame/ soulmate and the coincidence we discovered together convinced me of it. He’s ten years older than me and we met 4 years after we figured out we had first met. We both worked for a grocery store. I was 19 and it was my first job. I happened to ask the manager for help and unknowing to me he answered my call since he was training to be a manager in the store I worked at. I didn’t even remember I had met him until we tried to figure out if our lives had ever overlapped after we both ended up in the same store 4 years after this chance encounter. We also discovered that we lived in the same town at the same time, his other home was minutes away from my sisters house that I visited numerous times. Another strange coincidence was that my sister years later bought his old house. I had never told her where he had lived and she ended up putting in an offer. I realized it was his house when she sent me the listing. His wife also has the exact same car as me.

## Taiyaki

It was valentines day. I went over to a friend's and gave her some chocolate. She made me some taiyaki. I didn't finish it because I was full. I drove two hours to meet up with another group of unconnected friends. One of them announced they were craving taiyaki. I got the extras out of my car and offered it to him.

## Receiving 2 letters with the same number

A few years ago on holiday I was inconvenienced by forgetting the PIN for my credit card. When I got home I applied for a new number which was sent to me by post. On the same day that I received this I received an electricity bill. The amount due on the bill was the same as the credit card number. I never had trouble with my credit card PIN again - I took the electricity bill on holiday with me to remind me.

## Palindromes

How is it possible that EVERY random time I look at a clock it is a Palindrome number? I realize there are 114 possible palindromes in a 24 hour period. But if EVERY time I look it IS a palindrome, how is that possible?
