In shamanistic cultures, synchronicities are considered to be teachings as well as sign indicating where one should focus one’s attention, such correspondences demonstrate the usually hidden links between the individual psyche and the larger world. Synchronicities express themselves through chance meetings and natural events as well as in dreams and supernatural episodes – for instance, among the Secoya shamans, a dream of seeing yourself in the mirror suggests that you will soon encounter a jaguar in the rain forest. Shamans see such temporal conjunctions as essential aspects of reality, revealing its ultimately dreamlike and magical qualities.
