“Unexpected Miracles: The Gift of Synchronicity and How to Open it”, by David Richo, Ph.D., is high on my list of books to recommend for reading (even though it was written in 1999). I just finished it, and am very happy that it caught my eye (this was a Mondazzi purchase – thank you Buddy!).
This is not a review – just a few thoughts on the book. Most of us understand how synchronicity works, even if we don’t know the “why” of it. Richo, in a very down to earth fashion, takes insights from psychology, religion and poetry and shows how synchronicity – which he terms meaningful coincidence – works in daily life, in dreams, an in our imagination.
The first thing that Richo says, in his prologue, is that whenever synchronicity happens, something else is about to happen in our life. From my own personal experience, this is so very true! And those things that follow synchronicity are generally very, very important happenings!
He also talks about what the reader can get from this book, such as (1) when to hold on, and when to let go, (2) how to tell when people are for you or against you, (3) how to open yourself to the assisting forces around you, (4) how to get past the fears that can stop you frm being you, and much more.
Richo talks about compassion, and the part that it plays in our lives. Synchronicity, as he puts it, is a moment in time that summons us to move forward.
I give thanks for synchronicity – it has always brought wonders into my life – and continues to do so. This is a great book for those that want to encourage synchronicity, and put it to use in their lives.
