Many experts describe synchronicity by saying it’s what happens when you think about a certain person and a moment later they call you on the phone. Or, you’re driving to work and you have the sudden urge to slow down and put your hands on 10 and 2, then suddenly you see a cop appear ahead of you… or more seriously, maybe your sudden alertness is followed by an almost accident. Ring a bell? Maybe, just maybe, you were thinking about Synchronicity before you found this post? Face it… you reading my blog was meant to be. 🙂
Many people would argue that this is just coincidence or an accident. Dr. Kirby Surprise tells us this is not true in his book Synchronicity: The Art Coincidence, Choice, and Unlocking Your Mind.
From the author’s website…
- Learn to use your amazing ability to create synchronistic events.
- Discover how your mind creates the reality you experience.
- Unlock your brain’s vast resources of connectivity and creativity.
- Change from living as a separate being to living as a part of the unified whole.
Today I listened to Dr. Surprise being interviewed on my favorite podcast, Jim Harold’s The Paranormal Podcast. I’ve heard and read about synchronicity from various mediums and experts, but from what I heard today it seems like Dr. Surprise views things a bit differently than the average spiritualist or medium… or at least the ones I follow. He mentions being inspired by the psychiatrist Carl Jung, who was the first to propose the concept of synchronicity.
I haven’t read the book but I think I’m going to add it to my queue. Hopefully my head won’t explode… Wait! Thoughts… positive thoughts…
