We've all experienced or heard of surprising events and unexplainable coincidences - money that seems to come from nowhere, a spontaneous idea that turns into a life-changing solution, meeting your soul mate on a flight you weren't supposed to take, or families being reunited by accident after years of separation.
Often these coincidences are explained as being controlled by a higher power or pure chance. But for the first time since Carl Jung's work comes bold new research that explains scientifically how we can identify, understand, and perhaps even control the frequency of coincidences in our everyday lives.
Bernard Beitman, a leading expert on coincidence studies, proposes a greater personal responsibility that depends partly upon newly discovered "grid cells" located in the brain, near the hippocampus. But neuroscience cannot complete the entire puzzle, and in this fascinating guide, Beitman provides the missing piece. While analyzing true stories of synchronicity from around the globe and throughout history, he shares key personality characteristics and situational factors that contribute to the occurrence of meaningful coincidences in our lives. Where other books on coincidences tend to be theoretical, inspirational, or story collections only, Beitman's book is the first to provide a scientific understanding and practical ways in which listeners can use them in their own lives. He reveals:
- How to activate your observing, self so you don't miss synchronistic moments
- How serendipity can offer insights into solving problems or making difficult decisions
- Why stress activates meaningful coincidences
- Which states of mind impede our ability to experience synchronicity
- How to interpret the meaning of a coincidence
- Why being attuned to coincidences is a learned skill - and how to hone your sensitivity

How to suck the fun out of synchronicity
I find coincidences fun and sometimes fascinating but this book takes all the fun out of it. It takes something almost magical and over analyses it and so it becomes boring and mundane. A very disappointing listen . 😕
this is not about synchronicity
this is not a book about synchronicity! it is more about the religious and magical believe in co-incidence and utter nonsense up to ghost stories. It has nothing to do with the effects of two synchronized events that change or indicate something... Disappointing stuff.

This is pseudoscience posing as science. Don’t bother with it. I want my money back.
