Enhance your mental health and empower your life with the power of coincidence.
Synchronicity is meaningful coincidence that connects our inner and outer worlds. This book reveals how it can guide us along our life path, helping us through challenging times and nudging us toward self-fulfilment.
Psychologist Chris Mackey writes from personal experience, not only as a practitioner but also as a patient who has suffered serious mental illness. Formerly a rationalist with little time for non-scientific approaches, his own experiences and those of his patients have convinced him that synchronicity has a key role to play in helping us to tap into our intuitive and spiritual selves and guiding us through life. This exciting new approach to synchronicity and the treatment of depression and other mental disorders will be of great interest to practitioners and patients alike, as well as to anyone interested in the opportunities offered by altered states of consciousness.

great narrative and insight
I found this book to be inspiring of a new wave of positive psychology that breaks out from the trappings of the scientific paradigm

Superlative in Every Sense
The incidence of mental illness has gone up exponentially in the past 50 years. The author explains how it is less due to changing environment and more due to our acceptance of pessimist explanations provided by researchers funded by the drug industry that has no motivation to publicize the self-healing nature of brain chemistry. Additionally, nature provides healing in the form of synchronicity that one would recognize if one is open to receiving it. The optimism in this book is based on science. I would describe this book as being illuminating in that it describes transcendental and transpersonal experiences as being transformative, and refers to them as 'luminous experiences' that advance our evolution. Being a Muslim, I found that this book validates my belief that human beings are the best of God's creation and that we are architects of our own destiny. It is empowering and faith-affirming. I would love to know the author's opinion of 'Way of the Seekers,' english translation of the 1925 Urdu speech by Mirza Basheer-ud-Din Mahmood Ahmad (1889-1965), that speaks of the evolution of the soul along with the evolution of the body. And of 'My Mother,' by Sir Muhammad Zafrulla Khan, that outlines a life shaped by synchronistic experiences.
