Synchcronicity was first defined by Jung as a simultaneous occurence of events which were linked, but couldn't be explained by the usual laws of cause and effect. When two or more events come together at a significant time in your life they often seem to have significance, although you might not be able to explain why. Maybe there is a change in the psychic energy at that moment that allows you to connect with the flow. As long as you are open to the idea that events have significance you can experience synchronicity. This book will have an accessible feel, very easy to pick up, while still keeping the concept of synchronicity grounded within an authentic Jungian context. It includes: an introduction to Jung's invention of the term and idea of meaningful coincidence; the zig-zag path through life - why synchronicities are our signposts through the wilderness; how synchronicity flirts with us to get our attention; and the ideas of purpose, right timing, chance, promise, and providence.

Review: Synchronicity

User Review  - Karla - Goodreads

Hope to do more reading on the subject but this book is great as an overview of Jung's theories. The chapter on astrology was particularly meaningful and I plan to read it over and over. Going to read Rob and Trish Macgregor's book next and maybe Jung's again to drive the points home. Read full review
