The Hole Punch Theory of Synchronicity

Bill White

What in the world could a common office tool used to create holes in paper have to do with synchronicity? Let’s take a look at what a hole punch is useful for and then I’ll draw my analogy.

The most obvious thing a hole punch does is punch holes. That would seem obvious right? But why do we punch those holes? Primarily we do so in order to gather loose bits of information into a collective whole so that we can bind them together.

Now to my analogy. Synchronicity is most commonly noticeable when we are going through major life transitions. It is during these times that the details of our lives can get out of sorts and the continuity of our lifestyle can get in disarray. When we surrender to the situation, placing our faith in the process, quite often synchronicity will ‘punch a hole’ in our current beliefs and begin to synchronize and gather the elements of change together.

In many traditions we are taught that there is a sort of ‘veil’ between the world we see and the hidden world of the higher intelligence. It is through this veil that the hole gets punched. It is through this hole that we can see a small indication of an omnipotent presence orchestrating events. Funny that we can also equate this to another hole, this one from a popular children’s bedtime story, Alice in Wonderland. So just how far down the rabbit hole do you want to go? It is when you begin to look at the hole itself that you can get that glimpse of the greatness beyond the veil. Often we get so startled and excited by the synchronicity itself that we don’t even think to take a look at the hands that guide it. We have a terrific opportunity in these moments to become acquainted with something much deeper and meaningful than we imagine. Simply taking a moment to reach back through that hole with gratitude and attention can gain us access to a connection with our source. Doing so can greatly increase the interaction.

Synchronicity deals with the realm of time and timing and it is on this ‘track’ of time that synchronicity builds a progressively unified meaning to our lives. This is the discovery and playing out of our purpose in life. It is through these holes that I have built my image of God from the collection of cameo appearances he has made in my life. It is also through these holes that I have constructed the emerging picture of my life’s purpose.

So what if we could begin taking the handles of that hole punch and begin creating our own holes? Could we gain a greater glimpse of our own purpose and the signature of our creator if we simply challenged our own beliefs? For much of our lives we live in a box of our own creation. This box is often imposing and constrains us to run on a linear track whose speed limit and direction are determined by our belief systems. By introducing new beliefs to challenge our old ones, setting aside our presumptions about reality, we can punch a hole into a greater universe. By punching holes in our box we allow the light of divinity to shine through.

When we begin challenging our own assumptions, we find we can do more, be more, have more and most importantly give more. If we are truly made in the image of our maker, is it not our responsibility to do so? Empowering ourselves by modeling the higher intelligence, perhaps we can begin creating synchronicity for one another, just the right things at the right time for everyone we meet. Then perhaps we’ll have a new earth.

Bill White

Bill White was born in 1969, and adopted by the people who became his family in that same year. At the age of ten, his parents separated, and five members of his family died, including his beloved grandmother, who passed away in the presence of 10-year-old Bill on Christmas Day, 1979. At an age when most young people are riding their bikes, playing baseball, and not worrying about much other than their homework, Bill had already come face to face with that question, 'What is the use?' He immersed himself in a study of ancient and modern philosophical, theological and metaphysical traditions from throughout the world, seeking an answer to that question. Bill's study continues to this day. The body of his work provides the seeker with a much needed synthesis of the various traditions available, and more than that, offers very practical applications of a vast amount of esoteric knowledge. It is this combination of learning and living his philosophy, with an appreciation of all cultures and systems, that makes synchronicity an essential topic, and Bill White the teacher for our times. Bill shares his life experiences to motivate and inspire audiences. A somewhat mystical story of overcoming, his keynote and motivational presentations include topics on dreams, synchronicity, power animals, how to turn conflicts into opportunities and how to live out your destiny by decoding life's secret messages. Having a unique ability to teach individuals how to interpret the seeming coincidences that occur in their lives and leverage that insight into a more successful and meaningful life experience, Bill inspires others to take responsibility for choosing their own path and to believe in the guidance available directly to them from the universe. As a true synchronicity expert, Bill is passionate about assisting others to decipher life's secret messages and achieve the greatness they were meant to achieve. Bill is an internationally recognized speaker who captivates his audiences with his stories, weaves in the valuable lessons he has learned from the universe along the way, and warms their hearts with a pastoral style of compassion. He focuses his energy to present action oriented and transformative information in a polished style. Bill's rapidly growing international audience comes from several sources including the following: As a highly successful life coach, Bill has worked with such high profile clients as Mike Litman, bestselling author of Conversations with Millionaires; marketing guru, Stephen Pierce; and virtual marketing pioneer, Johan Mok. Bill's monthly magazine Synchronicity In Your Life reaches an audience of 35,000+ people. Bill joined such well known personalities as Jack Canfield and John Gray as a contributing author of 101 Great Ways to Improve Your Life: Volume 2 as well co-authored Enthusiasm Day by Day with Flemish psychologist, Ineke Van Lint.
