    once I dreamed my neighbor's daughter was crying only to find out a couple days later from neighbor that her unwed daughter was pregnant
    (the whole family was upset so there was a lot of crying)

    one more:


    these happen to anyone else?

      Maybe this was targeted advertising from your browser history.

        no it's a regular email I subscribe to and the author/scene was mentioned
        and then few min later the exact same author/scene was mentioned in the tv show I was watching

        so it's twice appearing in under 5 min

          you get targeted advertising emails?
          due to browsing? how would they know your email address?

          I don't get any advertising emails but also don't buy online

                Yes, I do. I buy, pay bills and bank online, although most of my paying bills is now automated.

                    maybe I attach meaning to things that I notice or happen

                    such as sit at a table randomly, someone else we know ends up at the same table, right next to us
                    not until sitting down, start talking and say you look familiar and try to remember how know them
                    random places like a play or event for child (nothing like a wedding where someone might put people together)

                    it's cool when that happens
                    of all the seats in the room, you end up with someone you know right next to you, randomly

                    when these happen.....out of town, miles away from where we live
                    so it's not like right around town where chances are increased for that to happen

                      Coincidences happen to all of us.

                      I'm constantly looking for God's hand in things. But, instead of immediately reading spiritual significance into everything, I try to apply logic. If I hear about some product or service in one place then see it somewhere else, is it just because it's new and being advertised? If I have the same thought as someone else and we say the same word together, could it just be that the conversation, environment, or whatever else we have in common triggered the same thought? Could it just be chance? What about all of the times when coincidences didn't occur or I got a "feeling" and nothing happened?
                      "Those sowing seed with tears
                      Will reap with a joyful shout." - Psalm 126

                          there are some days I see it all day long and take part in it as am more open and aware those days
                          but those are more rare because too many days am too busy about my own busyness so therefore miss out on the little miracles and coincidences

                            ever had coins literally pop out of your hands? it's not like I drop them, I feel them pop out of my hand

                            this happens to me and I let them be and one day it happened right outside our drug store when I went in, I turned around to see the delight on a kid's face as they came out of the store with their parent and found the coins

                            so now sometimes, I randomly leave coins in places

                              I agree Stillness. Logic dispells coincidences oftentimes. However, strange things do happen in the world and it can be a weird universe. Science by its very definition explains things but there are unexplained mysteries that have dogged the human race throughout time.
