- "A human being is a part of the whole called by us 'the Universe,' a part limited in time and space. He expresses himself, his thoughts and his feelings as something separated from the rest - a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. "This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and affection for a few persons nearest to us." Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty." - Albert Einstein
The topic of synchronicity opens up a can of worms of Biblical proportions for it begins to question some of the Western world’s most basic assumptions and subconscious attachments to our ideas about time, cause-effect and the essential nature of reality and the universe. It also calls into question our notions of God, chance, gender-social roles, destiny, free will, personal responsibility and the concept of culpability among others.

- You may have experienced them yourself-‑those odd “coincidences” that somehow seem to be more than just mere coincidence. They leave you with a strange feeling, as if, perhaps, you have suddenly stumbled into an episode of the Twilight Zone.
I have been observing and studying synchronicities for over three decades now. They have intrigued me and challenged me. Like many people, I have experienced a fair number myself. But as a psychotherapist, I have experienced far more, perhaps hundreds in my therapy office and in workshops.
Synchronicities are the result of a deep and profound connection between consciousness and our world of matter. But this connection defies our normal sense of logic.

- We are being led. There is a presence moving through our heart, mind, and soul that guides and directs us. Meaningful coincidences or synchronicities, open us to new insights and help us to understand ourselves and what is happening around us in new ways. Synchronicity is intuition expressed in the outer world.
Synchronicities are no accident. The universe has carefully orchestrated the seemingly impossible convergences of things, people, events, and conditions. It does not matter how great or small the coincidence may be. We immediately recognize when we intersect with the cosmic. Although others may not always be able to feel and see it, we know when we are touched by the transcendent. The heart smiles, the mind opens, and like an Olympian gymnast, the soul joyously flips and leaps.

- Universal synchronization happens all the time in our lives but the simplest way of explaining it is coincidence. All the incidents that happen in our lives have nothing to do with luck but everything to do with positive energies working for us from sources beyond our control.
People are fond of the word “coincidently” but, in reality, none of the important things in life happen by accident.
The unseen realm has a way of aligning events so that we meet the people we are supposed to meet and learn the lessons that we are destined to master (be it sooner or later).
These events may appear to be utterly coincidental, but, for example, meeting the person that you were just thinking about, even though you haven’t met in years, should make you rethink the theory of “universal synchronization” (a.k.a. synchronicity).

- We humans, in our search for knowledge, have been primarily guided by the scientific method for the last 500 years. We test theories by performing experiments, and then we adjust our experiments and theories based on the results in order to improve understanding.
Yet, in spite of the scientific method, we are always fascinated by various phenomena that fall outside of scientific, repeatable verification such as synchronicities, pure mysteries, anomalies, hoaxes, and the so-called paranormal and extrasensory. Our “reality” is forever on shaky ground as one momentous discovery of a gaping mystery within a body of “proven” scientific knowledge can shake the foundations of our entire worldview.
Synchronicities are often spontaneous, meaningful coincidences of such high a degree of improbability that they appear almost unbelievable.
