This could be Carl Jung's century | Andrew Samuels | Opinion | The Guardian
For Jung and for many since, synchronicity has provided a resource for attempting to re-enchant the increasingly disenchanted modern world. Synchronistic events disclose deep interconnections between mind and body, between one person and another, between humans and the natural world; even, it seems to some, between humans and a reality transcending the ordinary empirical world.
For the appearance of corresponding patterns of meaning in contexts that, so far as we are able to discern, are causally unconnected can suggest that there is a superordinate level of reality that in some sense is unitary, what Jung referred to by a term borrowed from alchemy: But if he does, it is always in ways that remain profoundly stimulating.

This could be Carl Jung's century
Because of your uniqueness, you alone decide the final meaning of a coincidence. At the same time, Jung frequently equates his psychological concepts with traditional religious ones in a way which, rather than being straightforwardly reductive, seems genuinely to keep the door open to the possible reality of the transcendent objects of religion.
He is the author of The Rupture of Time: Synchronicity as Spiritual Experience SUNY, , as well as of many articles and book chapters on depth psychology and religion.
