Is the Universe trying to tell me something?

A friend and I was having a conversation one day about considences and how everything is connected and ever since that day I've been experiencing multiple considences. I don't remember all of them but here is one. I was on Facebook one day and a post for a missing person came up , was someone I knew. A comment was written that he been found two days before. Later that day I went to work then at some point I turn around and hes standing there , not knowing I work there etc.

Wedding lost ring on beach reappears two days later

In 1964 my family went on holiday to Lloret del Mar in Spain. I was seven years old and we spent many days on the beach, interspersed with day trips around the area. One afternoon we were getting ready to leave the beach when my father noticed he had misplaced his wedding ring, he would take it off before going swimming. We all spent a long time sifting through the sand to no avail, eventually giving up and returning to the hotel. Every evening the beach was raked by the hotel staff to keep it free of rubbish. The next day we went on a day trip to Barcelona.

Shared friends

Grade 7 and 8 I was friends with a group of people at my school and in grade 9 I moved away and thus lost contact with them. First year of university, I befriended this girl who, as it turns out, had started going to the school in grade 9 and had become with the exact same group of people I was friends with.

Last night I decided to watch the 1952 Sica film "Umberto D." I happened upon a thread earlier in the week which suggested watching the film, and so I did. Today was the first day of my Film Theory class. The first film we're watching: Umbert D.

Bavarian Relatives meet in Rome

When I was a child, my parents and I visited Rome for holidays and sightseeing. Close to the Vatican, we sat in a restaurant and our relatives - whom we meet quite frequently at home in southern Bavaria - passed by and we spotted them through the window and went out to ask them in. As far as I remember, we spent the afternoon together and had Italian ice cream.

Distant past

When I was a young child of nine and ten, in 1976, my Father had a Girlfriend whom he was on the verge of marrying. I became very close and connected with this woman. They had broken up shortly after my Father had lost visitation rights with me for lack of support, and I'd never saw her again. Though I didn't thoroughly understand it, I was devastated. 13 long years later, in 1989, at age 22 or 23, I was working at a Men's Shoe Salon in a Sopping Mall in Garden City Long Island. I sold a pair of Florsheims to an older Gentleman.

Chills/goosebumps experienced by two people at the same time in a conversation

My friend and I were having this conversation about life and our new found faith in spirituality and were pretty excited about how we had connected so well even though we just met a few months back. We'd just finished breakfast and crossed the road, while doing that my friend saw a car number 1212 and showed me. Now we've both been seeing synchronicities (repeating numbers) recently and the seen the spiritual meaning of those numbers actually be a 100% on point in our lives, some more sooner than others.

Wrong Name, Right Place, Right Time

At the age of 18, one week after high school graduation, I boarded a bus from Pasadena, CA, to Daytona Beach, FL, hoping to find a childhood buddy of mine, Doug. I wore Dolphin shorts, a tank top, high top shoes, and a headband onto the bus. I stowed my backpack with the luggage. The bus broke down in the South (Louisiana, I think), and we were transferred to another bus. When I arrived in Daytona, my luggage didn't arrive with me.
