Unit 3 DB: Weird Unexplainable Coincidence

Have you ever dreamt of someone that you hadnt seen for a long time and they call you out of the blue?  Have you ever had an uncanny coincidence that you cannot explain?  Maybe you hurt yourself and your mother jumped out of bed feeling like something had happened to you?  Carl Jung developed a controversial idea of a part of the mind called the “collective unconscious” where he believed that we are all connected to each-others thoughts and experiences.  He stated that because of this, people sometimes experience something he called moments of synchronicity or strange coincidence.  These often happen in dreams but not always.
Please describe in detail a strange coincidence that you cannot explain and that might best be explained by Jungs ideas.  Note: your book doesn’t talk too much about synchronicity, so refer to the Token Rock website.

******Just for reference, I am a white 30-year-old female with two kids (boys) living in California with my boyfriend in the military. This is just to help you come up with a story for this board.
