I am by no means an expert on analytical psychology, but I do dabble a little bit and Jung's theory of Synchronicity is fascinating. Put very simply: it suggests that the coincidence of thinking about something and having an experience which suggests your thoughts caused it can explain some paranormal activity. It is a lot more involved than that of course, and Jung's beliefs about it kept evolving throughout his career.
I think it's an interesting concept and it got me wondering if there is such a thing as bringing on an experience just by actively trying to avoid something similar.
In this anecdote, Loki is thinking about Erika just before she appears - my blunt attempt at using Synchronicity - but later on, Erika experiences something that is the complete opposite of an experience she was consciously trying to avoid.

Peter Parker meets Loki Friggason.

“Come on, Bruce. You know I have to try.”
“But Thor! No! You can’t go around messing with the past like that. We only did it because there was no other way!”
“This is a situation in which there is no other way as well. I’ll just go back, grab Loki’s arm, and come.”
“But you’ll create another reality.”
“Is it not worth it, though? Would you not do it to save Stark, for example? And bring that man back to his wife and child?”
“He can’t be saved, Thor. It was either him or everyone else.”
“But what if…”
“Just hear me out, Banner. I have an infallible plan.”
All fallible plans start with that sentence.
