You can listen here to our lively discussion with Bernard Beitman, MD, on his radio show Connecting with Coincidence.
We recently experienced a cluster synchronicity involving Bernard Beitman, a visiting psychiatrist at the University of Virginia and author of Connecting with Coincidence. He’s the first psychiatrist since Jung to undertake a serious study of coincidence/synchronicity. We got to know Bernard when he was writing his book and looking for an agent. Once the book found a home, Bernard landed his own radio show on synchronicity and we’ve been guests several times. His knowledge on the topic is vast and profound.
Here’s the cluster. On February 5, Trish emailed Bernard about a reference to him she had run across on an Australian friend’s blog – Brizzdaz – who also writes about synchronicity.
Happy new year! Hope all is well with you!
Your name came up twice today – an Aussie friend mentioned a listening binge to all 48 of your broadcasts and loved them. Then I was looking at our stat counter and found that the DOD information network went to a post about you. Info listed below. The post they went to is here.
The DOD has come to our blog before, but usually related to posts on UFOs, aliens etc. Anyway, you’re now on their radar!
This email led to an invitation to appear on Bernard’s radio show. I should have known then that something more would develop from this. When we correspond with others who research synchronicity, there’s often a cluster involved.
On February 22, Rob wrote a post on a New York Times piece entitled The ‘Simpson’s’ Have Predicted a Lot. Most of It Can Be Explained. The title alone gives you an idea about the perspective they took on the subject.
As Rob notes in his post, “To balance the brilliant minds and large numbers explainations the article quoted our friend and author Bernard Beitman, who said: ‘Under the right conditions, we can know things that we don’t know we know, and we can sometimes predict events or attract what we are thinking.’”
The night before, Trish started teaching an astrology workshop in a closed Facebook group and on February 26, one of the women in the workshop, Stephanie, left the following comment on the post:
I have a synchro that just happened with this post! I just received an email from the Rhine Research Center telling me about Dr. Bernard Beitman (who I’d never heard of until now) about an upcoming event he’s holding on coincidence. This made me think of you guys, so I popped over to your website and you mentioned the same Dr. Bernard Beitman. I can’t make this stuff up…
The next day, February 27, Rob suddenly called out from his office, “Hey, a Facebook things just came up. Today is Bernard’s birthday.”
We’ll be on his show tomorrow, March 8. So far, I think the cluster has 7 synchros involved since February 5. Will they continue?
