Book Review: I Can See Clearly Now–How Synchronicity Illuminates Our Lives
Win a copy of this book—see details at the end of this review!
Carl Jung calls synchronicity a “meaningful coincidence,” and I must admit that I disagree with him a bit, because while I know that synchronicities are meaningful, I don’t believe for one moment that they are coincidences. I’m much more inclined to agree with Max Lundstrom (Intuition Magazine/May 1996), who says that synchronicity is like “getting a wink from the cosmos.” We’ve all had moments of synchronicity in our lives, for example, and not limited to:
- Those times when we’re thinking of someone and then the phone rings and the person we were just thinking about is on the other end of the line.
- Days and weeks when we hear the same song over and over and realize that an answer to a question we’re pondering is in the song lyrics.
- The times when we’re in a very big rush and a great parking spot opens up for us.
Some attribute these kinds of events to good luck, others (myself included) believe these moments are gentle confirmations, nudges, communication, and/or help from Spirit.
In her eye-opening book, I Can See Clearly Now, author Mary Soliel shares with us that when she woke up to the reality of synchronicity, she “realized we are all constantly graced with meaningful signs, not mere coincidences, through our relationships, nature, numbers, and events.” Mary details twelve years worth of synchronistic experiences in this wonderfully written, make-sense book. She guides us beautifully through the concept of synchronicity, shows us how to recognize and understand the synchronicities we all experience in our daily lives, and, bonus(!), she teaches us how to tap into our own intuition to decipher meanings of synchronicities and how to become conscious creators. I have read I Can See Clearly Now from cover to cover several times, and it has become a reference tool for me that I continue to share with my friends and readers. I Can See Clearly Now is available at http://www.Amazon.com.
