There have been any different sayings and predictions as to why people come into our lives, as well as why we may, eventually, head our separate ways. Some people subscribe to the ‘A Reason, A Season or A Lifetime’ belief, defining why someone enters in your life by how long they will remain there. While there is some truth to the way it is broken down, it misses the real ‘reason’ that we have met these specific people, and the impact they will have on our lives long-term.

With 7.5 billion people walking the planet, it begs the question why do we meet specific people. Is it a random occurrence, or are they destined to impact our lives?

It has been said that there are no coincidences and no accidents, everything that happens in the Universe, it can all be explained by synchronicity. The idea of spiritual synchronicity is best described as a mirror. Whatever you commit your life to and truly believe in will, in turn, be reflected back to you. If for example, you believe that you have been blessed with the gift of empathy and are charged with healing those that you encounter in life, you will find yourself meeting those that are in need of your healing, and individuals who can assist you in this journey.

Each person that we meet has been sent to play a specific role in our Universal journey, with the power to impact our lives, influence our decisions and guide us along our destined path. As you are interacting with people, it is important to remember this. Don’t take the people you meet for granted but rather embrace all that they bring into our life.


The people who come into your life can be explained by these 6 Cosmic Reasons:

#1 – They are sent to remind us.

Have you ever lost sight of a goal or dream only to have someone remind you of it later? These people are specifically sent to help us recall why we were travelling the path that we had chosen, and where we intend on going in this life.

#2 – They are sent to hold space for us.

While some people in our lives are sent with big, life-changing roles before them, others are far more subtle. These people may only be in our lives for a short moment, providing companionship before moving on such as the person you sit next to on the bus, or the woman you have a conversation with while waiting in line at the grocery store. While their role in our life is short, they still hold meaning.

#3 – They are sent to awaken us.

We all fall for this trip at one time or another in our lives – we become so comfortable with where our life is currently at that we fall into autopilot. Once actively engaged in where our life is heading, we now sit back and just ‘let it happen.’ At this time the Universe sends people into our lives to help encourage change, opening our eyes to new possibilities.

#4 – They are sent to encourage us.

There are times in this journey that you may find yourself feeling discouraged, faced with challenges that may feel insurmountable or impossible. At these times, the Universe sends people to us to encourage us, motivate us and help us to find our footing. They may not be in our lives for long, but their encouragement is felt for years to come.

#5 – They are sent to help us grow.

In order to reach our goals in life, we are going to have to experience times of growth and change, leaving old versions of ourselves behind and becoming the person we ultimately need to be. This growth can sometimes come from an internal trigger, but often it starts with the influence of a third-party sent into our lives to start the process.

#6 – They are sent to stay, holding a long-term role in our lives.

Not everyone that is sent to us in this life is sent to stick with us for the long haul. Those that do, however, are a rare and precious gift that should never be taken for granted. This includes your life-long best friend, your immediate family members and even your soulmate. Their impact on your life will be significant and ongoing as they not only help to guide you but also join you on your universal path.
