Incredible coincidence: the baffling world of synchronicity
A prophetic dream. An answered prayer. A lucky break. A chance encounter that leads to a long-term relationship or an unexpected career opportunity. We have all experienced or heard of incredible coincidences. But what are they really, and what do they mean? Is there a way to prepare for them? Can we prepare for them? Can we use them to our advantage? Synchronicity -- meaningful coincidences that have no apparent cause -- is one of the most thought-provoking concerns in the field of psychic phenomena. Alan Vaughan has compiled more than 150 actual case histories to prove that there is more to incredible coincidence than meets the eye: -- A woman in Berkeley, California, is locked out of her house; the postman walks up, holding a letter from her brother... inside is a spare key. -- A hurricane in Galveston, Texas, sweeps Charles Coghlan's coffin out to sea; eight years and two thousand miles later, the coffin is found just offshore from the town where Coghlan was raised. -- A Londoner takes the wrong bus, not realizing his mistake until he passes the house of a friend he hasn't seen in years; smelling gas at the door, he prevents a suicide. -- Incredible Coincidence A fascinating exploration into the strangest things that can happen every day.
