I love synchronicity.
Not just because it’s fun when it happens but because it serves as a clue to the fact that there is something more going on here than the story we’ve been told about reality.
The answer to what causes synchronicity will vary depending on who you ask.
I have my own ideas, but I wanted to see who out there has done extensive research on the topic.
This is how I came across today’s guest, Dr. Bernard Beitman. After studying at Yale and Stanford, Dr. Beitman went on to become the chair of the psychology and neuroscience program at The University of Missouri. He has also published multiple books including Meaningful Coincidences and started a non-profit called the Coincidence Project which seeks to better understand and educate the world on why and how coincidences occur.
In this conversation, we get into the various explanatory theories of why coincidences happen and how they can point us to a more expansive truth to the nature of reality.
Interesting parts of the conversation include:
Why do some people notice coincidences more than others?
How we can develop more agency in working with coincidences and synchronicity
How coincidences point to more expansive human capacities than what we have been told
An introduction of the psychosphere with supporting examples such as the simultaneous spontaneous discovery phenomenon
How we can work with coincidences to improve our experience
I’m passionate about synchronicity and coincidences because they point to the hidden currents that connect and unite us all, as well as our greater potential as beings.
I hope you enjoy this conversation with Dr. Beitman and encourage you to explore his work!
