You miss your plane by five minutes, but on the next flight you find a book in the seat pocket that ends up changing your life. You order a red dress, but a black one arrives. Just as you're about to send it back, the phone rings and you learn that your aunt has died. Meaningful coincidences and surprising connections occur all the time, explains psychologist David Richo, yet we often ignore them, failing to appreciate how they can guide us, warn us, and confirm us on our life's path.
Drawing on Jung's concept of synchronicity - and combining insights from psychology, religion, and poetry - THE POWER OF COINCIDENCE explores how meaningful coincidences operate in our daily lives, in dreams, in relationships, and in our creative endeavors. Filled with stories and insights, THE POWER OF COINCIDENCE includes practical exercises to help readers to appreciate the power of coincidence in their daily lives.
Written with Richo's signature warmth, encouragement, and simplicity, THE POWER OF COINCIDENCE will help readers to:
* Interpret a series of similar happenings
* Open up to assisting forces around us
* Understand how dreams can guide us through life events
* Use the creative imagination in life choices
This book was originally published under the title UNEXPECTED MIRACLES: THE GIFT OF SYNCHRONICITY and HOW TO OPEN IT (Crossroad, 1998). The author has revised and updated the text for this edition.
