Episode 158 – Synchronicity, Serendipity, Meaningful Coincidence w/ Dr. Bernard Beitman 1

Dr. Beitman is a psychiatrist, author and researcher. He is widely regarded as the first psychiatrist since Carl Jung to systematize the study of coincidences and add scientific rigor to the term synchronicity. He developed the first valid scale to measure coincidence sensitivity. Dr. Bernard has written several books, one of which, received two national awards. He is internationally known for his research in panic disorder.   he attended Yale Medical School and completed his residency at the University of Stanford.

We’ve all experienced or heard of surprising events and unexplainable coincidences—money that seems to come from nowhere, a spontaneous idea that turns into a life-changing solution, meeting our soulmate on a flight we weren’t supposed to take, or families being reunited by “accident” after years of separation. Often these coincidences are explained as being controlled by a higher power or pure chance. But for the first time since Carl Jung’s work, comes bold new research that explains scientifically how we can identify, understand, and perhaps even control the frequency of coincidences in our everyday lives.

Bernard Beitman, a leading expert on Coincidence Studies, proposes a greater personal responsibility which depends partly upon newly discovered “grid cells” located in the brain, near the hippocampus. But neuroscience cannot complete the entire puzzle, and in this fascinating guide, Beitman provides the missing piece. From analyzing true stories of synchronicity from around the globe and throughout history, he shares key personality characteristics and situational factors that contribute to the occurrence of meaningful coincidences in our lives. Where other books on coincidences tend to be theoretical, inspirational, or story collections only, Beitman’s book is the first to provide a scientific understanding and practical ways in which readers can use them in their own lives. He reveals:

How to activate your observing self so you don’t miss synchronistic moments

How serendipity can offer insights into solving problems or making difficult decisions

Why stress activates meaningful coincidences

Which states of mind impede our ability to experience synchronicity

How to interpret the meaning of a coincidence

Why being attuned to coincidences is a learned skill—and how to hone your sensitivity.
