In our book 7 Secrets of Synchronicity, the 7th secret is called The Global. Here’s how we defined it: When synchronicities manifest themselves through global events, the universe seems to be addressing us as a collective.
As with any kind of synchro, we still ask, What’s the message? So let’s take a closer look.
On January 21, 2020, the impeachment trial of donald trump begins. As is so often the case, there are some global synchros connected to this. Here they are:
Three years ago to the day, January 20, 2017, trump was inaugurated as the 45th president of the U.S. And today his impeachment trial begins in the senate, marking that three-year anniversary.
The other thing that happens today: the release of A Very Stable Genius by Washington Post journalists Philip Rucker and Carol Leonnig, both Pulitzer Prize winners. They have more than 200 sources, many of them individuals who don’t make appearances on cable TV, who haven’t spoken out publicly.
Now, it’s possible the publisher saw an advantage in releasing the book three years to the day trump was inaugurated. But unless the publisher had some prescient editors who are able to glimpse the future, synchronicity was at work in the timing of this book’s release on day one of trump’s impeachment trial.
“[Rucker and Leonnig] are meticulous journalists, and this taut and terrifying book is among the most closely observed accounts of Donald J. Trump’s shambolic tenure in office to date. . . . Their newspaper’s ominous, love-it-or-hate-it motto is ‘Democracy Dies in Darkness.’ A Very Stable Genius flicks the lights on from its first pages.” —Dwight Garner, New York Times “
“Imagine, for a moment, a high-octane courtroom prosecutor summing up for the jury a case built on the vivid testimony of multiple eye-witnesses…. You could scarcely ask for more capable advocates. Leonnig won a Pulitzer Prize for her reporting on the U.S. Secret Service in 2015, then joined Rucker and others on a team awarded the Pulitzer for stories on Russian interference in the 2016 election. Their new, collaborative account….walks readers step by step through the first 30 months or so of a presidency like no other. They leave little doubt that they and many of their sources regard that presidency as an unmitigated and deepening disaster — a threat to American government as we have known it. Whatever may happen to that impeachment effort in the weeks and months ahead, it creates a moment of intermission in the Trump saga and a chance to consider how the landscape has already been altered by this president. A Very Stable Genius offers a harrowing companion narrative to be read during intermission.” — NPR
The message? We’re a critical juncture in our democracy.
If trump isn’t removed, he will strut through the next year with his usual diatribes about fake news, witch hunts, and wah wah wah, oh poor is me, I was picked on, and will continue to dismantle the constitution and democracy in any way he can. He’ll become more dangerous, will distance us even farther from our allies, and will hammer away to establish himself as a dictator, autocrat, king of the world.
Now I’m waiting for more synchros to surface. And they will.
