The Books I Picked & Why

Synchronicity: The Bridge Between Matter and Mind

By David Peat

Synchronicity: The Bridge Between Matter and Mind

Why this book?

This is a brilliant book by a physicist and highly creative thinker. David Peat worked personally with David Bohm in coming to understand the universe as a deep holographic process, one in which the meaning of real events is hidden and enfolded in the “implicate order” beyond time and space. Peat’s literary touch makes this book a must for those who love the study of synchronicity.

Synchrodestiny : Harnessing the Infinite Power of Coincidence to Create Miracles

By Deepak Chopra

Synchrodestiny : Harnessing the Infinite Power of Coincidence to Create Miracles

Why this book?

Deepak Chopra gives us a lovingly personal and spiritual perspective of synchronicity. On the practical side, it offers a variety of exercises to help the reader discover the power of synchronicity in his or her own life. In essence, however, it is simply about noticing the organizing intelligence seen through synchronistic events and inviting it into your life. In Chopra’s own words, “You don’t have to assign a specific meaning or interpretation to the coincidences, just … gently appreciate the cosmic coordination of your life with everything else.” This is a book that has changed the lives of its readers.

Synchronicity: An Acausal Connecting Principle

By C. G. Jung, R. F. C. Hull

Synchronicity: An Acausal Connecting Principle

Why this book?

Carl Jung is the person who actually coined the term “synchronicity” and was the first to recognize it as an important connecting principle between the unconscious and the outer world. He observed that such events occur when the archetypal processes of the collective and personal unconscious correspond to objective events in the real world. Here, for example, he reports the now-famous case of the patient who dreamed of a scarab beetle, a creature that represented transformation to the ancient Egyptians, only to find a similar beetle tapping on Jung’s consultation room window the next day, as the patient described the dream to him.

For Jung, virtually all authentic instances of synchronicity involve the archetypal unconscious and reflect mythic themes. This book includes a number of the first and best examples in synchronicity literature.

Synchronicity: The Art of Coincidence, Choice, and Unlocking Your Mind

By Kirby Surprise

Synchronicity: The Art of Coincidence, Choice, and Unlocking Your Mind

Why this book?

This book is a rich introduction to the topic of synchronicity, thoughtfully simplifying Carl Jung's original ideas. In the words of Gary Schwartz, PhD., this work “is teeming with delightful and compelling surprises about the nature of meaningful coincidences in contemporary life. The author's prose is playful, provocative, and profound.” From the foreword, which the present writer (Allan Combs) wrote himself, “If you are looking for answers to the profound enigma of the meaning and nature of meaningful coincidences in your own life, answers that bring psychological insight and spiritual understanding, then you have come to the right place.

Professor Surprise has given us the finest book of its kind: a clear and delightfully readable account of the nature of chance in the lives of ordinary people; and he has flavored his offering with a perfect sauce of delicious examples.” Here is an excellent first, and even last book on the mystery of synchronicity.
