Welcome to the Synchronicity blog, a site about all things related to synchronistic events (SE) and thoughts about them. This site, and the book associated with it, has been created as a gift to you and a tribute to the amazing ability of all people to create their own SE. A full model of how this is possible and how to work with SE is presented in the book Synchronicity, and that model is the basis for the commentary and advice this blog will be offering. This blog will present any and all information on SE and what people have experienced and speculated about them. I will commenting on current reports of SE, theories about the causes of SE both contemporary and historical, and will be trolling the web for related sites, blogs, news and generally related information I hope you will find interesting and entertaining. The goal of this site is to make SE accessible to everyone, and to create a grounded and fun context for you to explore an astonishing power you are already using, and to shamelessly promote and plug my own book and views on the subject.
I will do my best throughout this blog and site to demystify and simplify the various ideas about SE. I’m going to try to make SE understandable and useable for you. Hopefully, over time, this site will become a central clearing house for information on SE, presenting and discussing every model, theory and reported experience on the subject.

“An interesting mix of mythology, neuroscience, and common sense, this book takes a serious, but light-hearted look at the way synchronicity works and the degree to which it can be controlled. Going well beyond the ideas of Jung, synchronicity’s discoverer, psychotherapist Surprise draws on anthropology, String Theory, and Walt Disney to make the case that our internal states do effect external events....”
