Hi All,

Here’s an interesting event that occurred to me many years ago. When I was perhaps 7 or 8 years old, my Dad stopped at a 7-11 convenience store and went inside to buy something. While he was inside, I started a conversation with my Mom, who was in the front seat, sitting on the passenger side. I was sitting in the back seat.

In this conversation with my Mom, we talked about what we would do if a man got into the car and started to drive away, while my Dad was inside the 7-11. I don’t believe that my Mom and I had ever discussed this before.   

In this conversation, I told my Mom that if a man actually did this, while my Dad was inside, I would beat him up and make sure that he didn’t go anywhere.

Now here’s the interesting thing, while we were in the mist of this conversation, an older gentleman, who was probably in his 70’s, came out of the 7 -11 store, came over to the drivers side of our car, opened the door, got into the car and proceeded to attempt to put his car key into our cars ignition switch. Once he did this and realized that his key didn’t fit, he realized that he had gotten into the wrong car. By this time my Mom who was somewhat started by this, leaned over and said to him, “Hey, what do you think you’re doing?” Me, I was so completely dumbfounded that I didn’t do a thing.

The car right next to us was an exact duplicate of our car. This man simply made a mistake. He got into our car thinking that it was his.


Here’s the thing. I always considered this to be an odd “synchronistic” event. However, just recently it occurred to me that perhaps I started this conversation because I had, had a precognitive insight that this event was about to occur.

Unfortunately, this happened so long ago, that I really don’t remember much more about it than what I just told you.

What do you think, was this a synchronistic event (whatever that means) or was my conversation perhaps based upon a precognitive insight from me?

Have you ever had something like this occur in your life?

jbseth,

Thanks for sharing this. I assume that it was not your mom who started this topic. It seems to me that it was a rather odd idea for a 7 or 8 year-old to bring up. It could have been precognition, or it could have been that you created the reality of what happened.

I was thinking about my many synchronicities this morning before I saw this new thread. I will be sharing several of mine soon. For now, here's an example:

I don’t know if I had even heard of the term ‘synchronicity’ in 1974, but I was about to experience it. I had just bought my first property, a condo in Southern California. I had gotten word that it was ready for me to move in – that the carpet had been installed, including clean-up afterward. I moved out of my apartment and arrived with all my personal possessions in a borrowed van. I unlocked the door only to find that the carpet installers had left a horrendous mess of shreds and remnants all over the floor. There was no way that I could move in on top of that mess. I had a $20 cannister vacuum cleaner that I knew was not up to the job. But I had no choice. I had just begun to gather up at least the larger debris by hand when the doorbell rang. It was a Kirby vacuum cleaner salesman. He asked if he could demonstrate his product by vacuuming my whole house. I said, “First, I just spent all of my money buying this house, so I am not buying a vacuum cleaner from you. Second, look at what you are getting yourself into,” and I showed him the floor. He said, “I don’t care if you don’t buy the vacuum cleaner; I get paid for demonstrating it.” He worked for two hours, lining the walls with napkins filled with copper-colored carpet remnants, each removed from the cleaner after doing about a square yard of carpet. I have since had only one other vacuum cleaner salesman knock on my door, and there was no synchronicity tied to that one. But at the one moment in my entire life that I desperately needed a high-end vacuum cleaner, the universe obliged. Or in Sethian terms, Framework 2 obliged.

Hi LarryH,

It sounds to me like you got a Kirby salesman who was willing to "demonstrate" his vacuum cleaner just at the exact right moment.  :)

My wife had a Kirby vacuum when I first met her many years ago and we still have it. These were really incredible vacuum cleaners, which had many attachments that could be used for many purposes.

I'm really interested in hearing your other stories.

When I was in college in Detroit, I had an illustration instructor, Syd Mead, who was already famous for his design illustration abilities. He later got the attention of Hollywood and started doing set and vehicle design for science fiction movies like Star Trek Voyager, Bladerunner, and 2010.  I was working at a design consulting office in Southern California when I discovered that Mead had come out with a book of his illustrations. I thought that I would order one for myself and two more as Christmas gifts for my brothers. I knew that Mead had moved to Southern California and thought that perhaps I would see him at some design event, and then I could ask him to autograph the books. I received them and kept them at the office, so they would be handy. I had them there for perhaps two months, but Christmas was fast approaching. I needed to get them in the mail if they were to arrive by Christmas. As I was leaving the office with the illustration books under my arm, I passed our temp secretary who had moved from S. Carolina, and she exclaimed, “Oh, I see you have Syd Mead’s Illustration book!”

I replied, “Gifts for my brothers. Wait, you know about Syd Mead?”

She responded, “Oh, yes, he’s a friend of the family! He used to stay with us in Charleston when he was there on business! As a matter of fact, he’s coming over for dinner tonight! Say, would you like me to take those books and get them autographed for you?”

What were the chances? How perfectly did that outcome match my intention, though in a completely unexpected way?

Hi LarryH,

Wow. That's a neat story. What are the chances that a temp secretary would know Syd Mead, much less that he would be a friend of her families. 

I'm curious, did you know about Seth and his ideas regarding you create your reality at the time.

Yes, I started reading Seth before either of those events above, probably in '73 or '74. By the way, a few days ago I was listening to a sci/fi book, and the story mentioned Syd Mead as an inspiration for the design of some high-tech military installation.

Here's a link to his site: http://sydmead.com/

Hi LarryH,

I really like the Syd Mead, info. I remember thinking that the movie "Tron" was really awesome.  I thought the concept was very interesting and at the time, I thought those computer generated motorcycles were awesome. I still think they're kind of cool, even given todays computer generated capability.

I didn't start reading Seth until 78' or 79'. I discovered "Seth Speaks" in a local bookstore, and was absolutely blown away by Seth's concepts.

I know there were several other synchronistic events that have occurred to me, but at the moment, I can't think of them.  I'll post them here on this site, when I remember them.

Do you have any others. So far they've really been quite amazing.  :)

Here's another one: Maybe just coincidence? Several years ago, my daughter and I were watching Shutter Island (with Leonardo DeCaprio). It is about an FBI agent who visits an island hospital for the criminally insane. Before we started watching it, I shared with Rachel that I suspected that it would remind us of the old silent movie The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. I said that something in the previews that I had seen gave me that impression. She had never heard of it, though. I just told her that I would explain later after my suspicion was either confirmed or denied. We watched about half of the movie the first night. The next day, she announced that her Art History and Appreciation class assignment was to write a critique on a movie. I asked her what movie she was supposed to watch. She went and got her notes as I went to the Netflix website. Then she read me the name of the movie: "The Cabinet of..." and I said, "Dr. Caligari." She hadn't remembered the name of the movie that I had mentioned the day before. We were able to watch it online on Netflix before finishing Shutter Island. By the way, my suspicion about the similarities was confirmed. She even compared the two movies in her school assignment. I will not go into detail about the key similarity so as not to spoil it for anyone who has not seen either but may someday.

Hi LarryH,

Hey that's another great synchronicity. How you knew about the Dr. Caligari movie and how your daughter had it for a class assignment. That's neat. Thanks for sharing.

I've recalled of 2 these types of episodes for myself yesterday, and I'll post them both today. One of them however is possibly more along the lines of a reality creation event.

Hi Larry H, Hi All,

One of the most bizarre synchronistic experiences I’ve ever had, occurred indirectly as a result of the fact that when I was in my early to middle teen years, on several occasions, the idea came to me that I would not live much longer than about 35 years. At the time, I thought this experience was rather odd; where did that idea come from, but I didn’t concern myself with it too much.

Then, when I was 35 years old, I had a dream one night that I was working on something and suddenly I had a heart attack. This dream experience really startled me and I woke up quite shaken as you can probably imagine. After I woke up, and got my bearings about me, I noticed that my wife, who was lying next to me, was crying. I didn’t know whether she was sleeping or awake and so I shook her and asked her what was wrong.  It turns out that she was awake and she told me that she was crying because she just had a dream that I had died. 

Wow.

To be honest, I have often wondered whether a probable me actually did die that night and in some way, I was able to transfer over from that reality into a probable reality, this one, where I got to experience continuing on with my life.

Hi Larry H, Hi All,

Here’s another one of my synchronistic experiences, although I suppose that perhaps this could be classified as inadvertent reality creation as well.

In 1979, before I had discovered any of the Seth books, I had purchased a book written by Harry Homewood, called “Thavis is Here” (see Amazom website below). In this book, Harry, who is a trained journalist, writer and editor, talks about how he made contact with a spirit guide, “Thavis”, using automatic writing. The majority of this book is about Thavis’s communications with Harry, where Thavis shares his insights on many topics. These include concepts such as: 1) the Soul is immortal, 2) reincarnation does occur, 3) every living creature has a soul, 4) there is no such thing as time, all time is no time and no time is all time, 5) God is light; God is All, All is God, 6) there is no Satan, and 7) the greatest lesson, you will not die.

https://www.amazon.com/Thavis-Here-Harry-Homewood/dp/0449139913/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1534956762&sr=8-1&keywords=thavis+is+here



After reading this book I was really excited; finally I had found a book that feels right to me.

Then, I started to investigate the local libraries and bookstores, to see if Harry had written a sequel. Once I realized that he hadn’t and perhaps maybe never would, then I began to search in earnest for something similar to this. I couldn’t and wouldn’t believe that someone had written something so close to what I believed to be true and then never wrote any more on the topic. I searched all the libraries and bookstores as much as I could, as often as I could, looking for something similar. After about 2 months of doing this, one day I walked into a small local bookstore and found a book that seemed, very interesting. I was a book by Jane Roberts and it was titled, “Seth Speaks, the Eternal Validity of the Soul”.

Of all the books that Jane had written and published by 1979, the one I found that day was “Seth Speaks”.  What was the main point that Seth attempts to get across in Seth Speaks? You do not die.
And what was the main message of Thavis is Here”?  You do not die.

Again, I don’t know if this was a synchronistic event or perhaps an inadvertent reality creation; perhaps it was a little of both.  :)

I'm loving all of these stories but while I feel like synchronicity happens in my life all the time (usually around thinking of someone I haven't had contact with for a long time and they call or email me, or I run into them in the most unlikely places), for some reason I can't come up with anything exciting to share. Maybe later.

In the meantime, will precognition do?

I was maybe around 15 or 16 years old, living in NJ. I had a brief dream that I was looking at a mountain in the distance. A train was coming around the mountain (just like the song, lol), and suddenly it derailed and was tumbling down the side of the mountain. I could hear people screaming. Then my alarm went off and I had to get ready for school. Turning on the news, I found there had been an Amtrak derailment in PA. I don't think it was on a mountain, but that sort of thing doesn't happen every day.

Around the same age, I had this weird dream that I was dressed like an oldtime cowgirl-- the clothes, hat, gun in a holster around my hips. I was swaggering through half-size swinging doors, into a saloon of all things. Suddenly someone threw a bar stool at my head. I jerked and that woke me up. I was sitting upright in bed. At the same moment, a heavy large picture laminated to wood (my mom's wedding portrait) had fallen off the wall above my pillow. The hanger on the back had come off because the glue was old and dried out. It would have landed smack in the middle of my forehead if I hadn't sat up when I did. I would have had a couple of shiners at least, maybe more.

Telepathy?: One day I was with some co-workers at lunch, and I was telling them about a very cool elderly inventor for whom I had done some development work about 7 years before. I had not been in touch with him since. The next day, on the front page of the paper was an article about his death. Evidently, his funeral was occurring while I was telling my companions these stories about him.

Whoa, that's too cool. How can anyone deny there is something going on outside of our "normal" communication?

A teensy story: Back to when I was a teen again. 17 or 18, I had my own car at this point and was driving down a highway with my best friend. She started singing a popular song and in an attempt to get her to stop singing  ;) I turned on the radio. The same exact song was playing on the radio and was completely in sync with where she was in the lyrics. She thought it was hysterically funny.

Hi All,

Oh these stories are all very interesting.  Thanks for sharing.

Deb's, last story about her best friend singing in her car, reminded me of a sync event that occurred me many years ago (is what's going on here, what Seth referred to as association? I think so.)

In 1979, was going to a local community college taking courses in electronics. That particular quarter, I was taking a course on televisions.  The back of a TV picture tube contains a large electromagnetic coil called a "yoke".  The changing electromagnetic field that is built up by the current flowing through the yoke,  changes the direction of the electron beam which is aimed at the inside front of the picture tube. This action is performed in such a way that this electron beam very quickly scans across the back side of the front of the picture tube, and in this way is able to draw the image on the front of the TV screen.

After a TV is turned on, if you move the yoke back on the picture tube, the entire image that's displayed on the TV screen will appear as a small round circle. If you then move the yoke forward, the entire image on the screen becomes a larger and larger circle until finally the image completely covers the entire screen.

One day, during a lab session, after we turned the TV on, my lab partner and I noticed that the image displayed on the picture tube was a small circle that looked like an ocean scene.   At this point, we tried to figure out what was wrong with the TV we were using because the yoke was placed forward where the TV image should have been displaying on the entire screen.  After scratching our heads for a few moments, we noticed that the image on the screen started working and everything was alright.

What happened was this, at the moment we turned on our TV set, the local TV station was playing a pirate movie. It just so happened that at the instant that our TV first came on, the pirate in the movie was looking out of his telescope for enemy ships on the horizon.

Talk about timing.  :)

Hi All,

Here are two more possibly related synchronous events that occurred to me and my family many years ago. Certainly it appears that maybe there’s more going on in life, than we may realize.

My wife and I were spending 3 days visiting Victoria, British Columbia, and had been staying at a hotel in town. While we were there, in town looking around, I got a call from my sister Pat telling me that my Mom had just passed away. This wasn’t entirely unexpected since she was living in a nursing home, close to Pat’s after having suffered a major stroke several months earlier. My wife and I went back to the hotel and started packing up and making arrangements to travel down to Prescott, Arizona, where Pat and my Mom lived. Shortly after we arrived in our hotel room, a seagull appeared on the window ledge looking out the backside of the room. These windows were oddly placed about 10 feet high and I didn’t think that it would have been possible for even a smaller bird, like a pigeon, to land on this very narrow ledge and stand on it. 

I’ve always loved birds, all kinds; I think because they can fly; and my Mom knew this very well.  This seagull stood on this ledge and looked in on us for probably about 15 minutes. Then it flew away. The entire time that we were there, this is the only bird that ever landed on this extremely narrow ledge and looked into our hotel room.

Was this a messenger, sent to us from my Mom?


When we got to Arizona, we started to look for funeral parlors to help us make the arrangements. I looked in the local yellow pages and contacted a funeral parlor that used a moth/butterfly as a symbol of their business. Then that evening after spending the day and evening with Pat, Bart, her husband, and family, my wife and I went back to our hotel in Prescott and went to bed. 

Shortly after we left, Bart went to bed but Pat stayed up for a while longer. After Bart, got into bed, he said that he felt something poking him in the back and it seemed to be moving. As a result, he got up and turned on the light to see what was going on and a large moth, was crawling around in the bed, and then took off, flew around the room and then out the window.  The next day, after telling us this story both Pat and Bart said that almost never have any moths in their house, much less in their bed.     

Was this also another messenger, sent to us from my Mom?

Possibly. Also, birds appearing in an unusual way have been viewed as an omen of death. But I think also that a departed loved one can take control of animals and insects to visit or send a subtle message. After an aunt who loved cardinals died, I was taking a walk, and I saw eight cardinals. One allowed me to get within about 5 feet away without flying away. Another swooped close to my head. After my step-father died, I thought I would like him to visit as a butterfly. Even though I never saw any butterfly-related unusual events, I was walking with my daughter one evening about two weeks ago. A butterfly flew past, and I said, "Hi, dad!" Then, I explained to her why I said it. The next day, as I was bringing groceries to the car, I noticed a beautiful dragonfly on a shopping cart nearby. I reached out to it, and it crawled onto my finger. It stayed there for about a minute as I held it up to the sky and brought it close to my face. When I finally went to open the car door, it flew away. As I thought about it, I realized that a dragonfly would be more dad's style.

My understanding of Seth's Frameworks 1 and 2 is that Framework 1 is the world of space and time in which we live, while Framework 2 is the level of reality that “contains all the dreams, plans, and thoughts of all human beings of any time.” It may be what is also referred to as the Akashic Field, also possibly related to the implicate order referred to in quantum physics (where Framework 1 would be the explicate order, that which manifests in time and space).

Here's a little from Seth regarding Framework 2 as it relates to coincidence, from TPS4:

“The ordinary events of each day are overloaded with coincidences and significances that are nearly invisible because they are so taken for granted, and they are so multitudinous in number, and fit so perfectly into the framework of the days. These coincidences do indeed hint at another kind of organization and throw a different perspective indeed on the nature of events.

“Those coincidences and significances are indeed giving hints of the actual organization behind the facts of your world. This organization is personally, intimately tuned, in that it gives evidence of a spectacular psychology on another scale that organizes events in a manner that is for each individual personally significant.

“It hints at the most precise and powerful focus, so that amid an infinity of data, events can be arranged at times so that two particular people, for example, separated in childhood, could, 30 years later, find themselves living next door to each other. In the meantime, they might have hired detectives, and all objective avenues may have yielded no results, until by chance they meet at the corner grocery.

“Until our hypothetical friends met each other at the corner grocery, it seemed that all of their efforts and searches brought no success. They might even have been living on the same street for a year before the meeting. They had no idea of faith in the terms of which we are speaking, yet in Framework 2 their desires came about – and not as a result of detective work.

“Your intents in Framework 2 will automatically attract those whose own intents will correspond with your own plans in whatever way. The same is obviously true for others from their standpoint—loose lines, so to speak, or loose maps for action, or patterns for action, begin to form. This kind of interweaving occurs constantly, so that no relationship of the minutest kind exists without it.”

So in a similar manner, my examples regarding Syd Mead or the vacuum cleaner had nothing to do with anything that I did in space and time - the desired outcomes simply manifested in a 'magical' fashion, apparently driven simply by intention.

In your last sentence, you said:

"So in a similar manner, my examples regarding Syd Mead or the vacuum cleaner had nothing to do with anything that I did in space and time - the desired outcomes simply manifested in a 'magical' fashion, apparently driven simply by intention."



I'm curious, who's intention do you think created these events.

It was the intentions of all involved in cooperation. As I quoted from Seth, "Your intents in Framework 2 will automatically attract those whose own intents will correspond with your own plans in whatever way." The vacuum cleaner salesman and I both were served by the synchronicity. In the Mead synchronicity, it was mostly my intention (with no idea how the desire would be fulfilled), but my intent in Framework 2 "automatically attracted" the synchronicity with the temp secretary.

Hi LarryH, Hi All,

I agree. It has to do with everyone's intentions, including our own.

Although in some of these event's I'm not really sure that we are necessarily "consciously aware" that we are attracting them.



In "The Nature of Mass Events" Chapter 4, Session 825, Seth says:

"The coincidences that seem to happen, the chance encounters, the unexpected events — all of these come into your experience because in one way or another you have attracted them, even though their occurrences might seem to have insurmountable odds against them. Those odds — those impediments — do not exist in Framework 2."

Yes, our intents do not have to be conscious. Our intents may be embedded in the arc of life that we planned before we were born. Meeting someone at the right time to fulfill a life purpose may not be recognized as a synchronicity, just a serendipitous coincidence. It would not be clear in many cases that Framework 2 was at work. Synchronicity may give us a message that we needed to hear, but not related to conscious intent. Here's an example, seeming to drive home the importance of paying attention to our dreams:

On a trip to Scotland, I spent two days in Findhorn, the alternative community that gained some notoriety in the '60's - and it is still going strong. I was sharing a B&B with my younger daughter, and while waiting for her to take her morning shower, I popped in my MP3 player to listen to a downloaded C2C show ('Surgery & the Supernatural' with guest Dr. Allen J. Hamilton). He was speaking about a time when he and an African guide purposely crashed a boat onto shore to keep from flowing to their deaths. When they got up, an old man was standing there smiling at them. The doctor told him who they were, what they were doing, and how they got there. With each comment, the man said, "I know."

The Dr. asked, "How do you know?"

The old man said, "Because I dreamed it. But what I don't understand is why I was told to come here to this spot and wait yesterday and not today."

What he did not know was that the doctor had been delayed on his journey just the day before for exactly one day. This was a pivotal experience for the doctor who was so impressed that a man would not only follow through with instructions received in a dream but would trust it so much that when nothing happened, he would wait another day. And the doctor's life and mission depended on this happening.

When Rachel came back to the room, she wanted to tell me about her dream, which was long and detailed, and this was the only time over the ten days that she told me a dream.

Immediately after discussing her dream, we went downstairs for breakfast. I asked the B&B owner how long she had been living in Findhorn, and she proceeded to tell her story, finishing with the fact that she built the B&B four years before because she was told to...in a dream.

Hi LarryH,

Awesome story.

The Findhorn experience must have been interesting.

The story about the old man who pays attention to his dreams and was there when the Dr. and his guide crashed their boat onto the shore. Wow.

I agree with everything you said about dreams. They can give us useful insights into our reality.

I have been writing down my synchronicities shortly after they occur. This is to ensure accuracy, as memory can sometimes change the details. Here's one from about a year or so ago:

One morning, as I was preparing to go to a Unitarian Universalist service, an old favorite quote popped into my head: “Life begins at the edge of your comfort zone.” I got in the car, and on my way to the service, I was listening to a book on CD, The Untethered Soul by Mickey Singer. Within a few minutes, the book is talking about getting past your comfort zone. I arrive at the UU, and that day’s talk was being delivered by the president of the congregation. He relayed the story of when he was first attending and the minister asked him, “What do you want from this fellowship?” He didn’t have an answer at the time. But after a few days of pondering that question, he came up with this: “I want to be made as uncomfortable as I can stand it.” Thus, I received--within less than an hour--three reminders of the importance of challenging one’s comfort zone.

Hi LarryH, Hi All,

That’s really neat how a quote, just “popped” into your head, and then the same sort of message shows up in the CD and then when you get to the service, the president of the congregation says that he wants to be made as uncomfortable as he can stand it.

Years ago, when things like this happened to me, I just thought of it as a mere “coincidence”.  However, after reading Seth for so many years, I now believe that when these types of things occur, this is really a method that my inner self uses to communicate with me.

I’d had many experiences where something occurred in my external environment that got my attention.

Once, about 2 months ago, while driving home from the swim center where I go to swim laps every day, I got an internal nudge to get off the main road that I usually take and take the back roads home.  In the last 20 years or so, I’ve begun to recognize these nudges much more often than I use to. In this case however, I was curious as to what this was all about.  As I continued down the main road, I positioned myself so that I could make the very last remaining left turn, about ¼ mile before taking the left turn that I usually take. As I looked ahead, I saw a significant amount of emergency vehicle red and blue lights flashing. Suffice it to say, I took that last remaining left turn and saved myself a long wait in traffic. Thank you inner self.  :)

I don’t think that a lot of people, outside of some Seth readers and some others, really understand the concept that a portion of you can and does regularly communicate with you via your external environment. It took me quite a few years before I actually recognized this.


About a year ago, I purchased a copy of the Michael Singer book, “The Untethered Soul”. I like the way that he approaches the question, “Who Are You.” And while I don’t agree with him that you are your consciousness, as he seems to indicate, I do like a lot of what he’s written in that book.

My wife and I occasionally attend a “New Thought” church here in town. As I understand it, New Thought Churches like Unity and Religious Science (now called International Centers for Spiritual Living) are very similar to the Unitarian Universalist churches.  All of these churches seem to be inclusive and very open to other religious ideas and concepts like the “Seth” information.

Speaking of Michael (Mickey) Singer, perhaps my largest collection of related synchronicities tie to him and/or a neighbor. My written account is a little scattered, as it spans many years. Before I share them here, I have to organize them better.

Meanwhile, here's a little one: As mentioned before, I download some of the Coast-to-Coast shows and listen to them on my MP3 during my walks. One day, I was listening to a show hosted by Dave Shrader called Time Anomalies. When I was nearly home, he listed his five all-time favorite time-travel themed movies in reverse order. His number one favorite was what he called a sleeper, not very well-known, called About Time. I had never heard of it - I thought. When I got home, I found that I had an email from Netflix telling me that the next movie in my queue, About Time, would soon arrive. I don't even remember putting it on the list.

Hi LarryH,

Well, it sounds like it was "About Time" that you did.   :)

(I'm sorry, I just couldn't help myself.)

What a neat sync event.


That movie title sounded familiar to me and so I went and Googled it; its the one with Bill Nighy and Rachel McAdams.  My wife and I saw that movie several years ago, and I've got to say, it's definitely one of the best movies (time travel or not) I've ever seen. What an awesome movie, we loved it.

I'm really interested in hearing about your Michael Singer sync experiences. In the mean time, I'll keep thinking about mine because I know I have several more.

In 2014, I went into my box of old books that I could not bring myself to give away and re-read a book that I had first read decades ago. The book was an autobiography, The Scientist, by John Lilly. In it, he writes in the 3rd person about his life, including his childhood, his education, his relationships, his professional challenges, his interest in consciousness, experiments with dolphins, his development and use of the isolation tank, his drug experiments, his participation in workshops at the Esalen Institute, and his many encounters during altered states with (what he calls) extra-terrestrial beings, who oversee, among other things, "coincidence control". Hold that thought.

I had become acquainted with a little hunched-over bearded guy named Marcus, a member of the Unitarian Universalist fellowship. Over the months, I had struck up conversations with him after the service, since I found out that he was an officer in Patton's 3rd Infantry Division in the same outfit as Audie Murphy. Since my step-father was in the same division, they both went all the same places during the war. Later, I learned that Marcus had a background in physics, was a patent lawyer, and a Zen practitioner. Many of his stories were filled with synchronicities.

Shortly after finishing Lilly’s autobiography, I asked Marcus on impulse, "Read any good books lately?"
He responded, "My own!"
"What, you wrote a book?"
"Yes, it's about to be printed. I had to proof-read the galleys."
What's it called?"
"Evolve or Perish."
He gave me a synopsis, which was essentially a philosophical autobiography: https://www.amazon.com/Evolve-Perish-Marcus-Dodd/dp/1936634279
Soon after, I got a copy and finished it in a few days. Among the subjects that he wrote about was his encounter with John Lilly at Esalen and his visit with him many years later. So, to sum up, I read two autobiographies back-to-back that were full of synchronicities, and the second author wrote about his personal friendship with the first author. Marcus spent the last two years at a senior care facility and recently passed away at age 97. I am waiting for word of his memorial service at this writing. But before he passed, I was browsing in the UU used bookstore and noticed a copy of The Nature of Personal Reality. I looked inside and found that it had belonged to Marcus.

Hi LarryH,

Wow what an interesting series of sync events.

I'm also finding it interesting that many of your and my situations in this life, seem to be related. This probably is no surprise, given that we are both here at a Seth forum.  :)

I'm a person who has spent much time for very many years in the "New Age / occult" sections of the local bookstores, just to see what's new and interesting. I find a lot of the books in this section of the bookstores to be fascinating.  I also like anything to do with science, birds and flight, the ocean including dolphins and whales, and history. I love almost all aspects of all of these topics.


I came across John Lilly many years ago and purchased a copy of his book.  At the time, I was looking into the "New Age" section of a bookstore, in a section about animal communication.  I thought his book was fascinating.

Here about 2 years ago, I had to literally get rid of many of the books that I owned. I love books, have a library, but they are starting to overrun our space. I'm pretty sure I sold John Lilly's book off or gave it away.

I don't specifically remember him talking about Esalen, though I'm sure he probably did.  I thought that some of his ideas may have been applicable to alternate realities but I was really intrigued with them. He seemed very creative.


I'm a big fan of history. I especially find WW2 fascinating but I also like ancient Roman and Greek history as well as biblical historical scholarship.

I'm sure you probably know that Audie Murphy was the most decorated American Soldier during WW2.
I've read his book along with the book by Jimmy Doolittle and "Band of Brothers" by Stephen Ambrose. I like a lot of Stephen Ambrose's books.


How interesting to find out that Marcus was in Patton's 3rd Infantry Division and that he met John Lilly at Esalen. Wow.

And then to find Marcus's copy of "The Nature of Reality" in the UU bookstore. That's incredible.

Now I've got a new book, Marcus's, to look forward to. I'm going to go find it so I can read it. It sounds great. Thanks for the heads up.  :)


Speaking of books, I've got an incredible story to share about finding a book in a "New Thought" Church bookstore, and while it's more of "creation" event than a sync event, I'll go ahead and post it here soon.

Hi LarryH, Hi All,

Here’s probably one of the most amazing events that has ever happened to me. I actually think that this may be a “creation” event, but it is also a synchronistic event as well.

Over the years I have read many books about peoples past life regression stories. In a past life regression, a therapist will typically hypnotize a client and take them back to a time in one of their previous lives. Then, the therapist will talk to their clients about the situations that occurred in that life. In some of these past life regressions, events in a previous life will occasionally somehow correlate with events in the present life and this past life therapy is sometimes used to help clients with healing in regards to certain situations.

In early 1996, I discovered and read a book by Dolores Cannon, titled “They Walked with Jesus”. This book is about various people’s experiences with Jesus, which occurred during their past life regressions.  At that time, I had been a Seth reader for about 18 years and so I was well aware of what Seth had to say about reincarnation, karma, peoples past lives and Jesus. Given what Seth had to say about Jesus, I found this book very interesting.

Then, after reading this book, I discovered that Dolores had previously written another similar book called, “Jesus and the Essenes”, which was also about various people’s experiences with Jesus, that occurred during their past life regressions. Because I was so intrigued with this subject, I wanted to find a copy of this book and read it as well. This is where I ran into problems.

Nobody seemed to have had a copy of this book. First I looked at our local library system and discovered that nobody had a copy of it. Then I went to all the local bookstores in the area, with no luck. 

Now this was the mid 1990’s. To be clear, there was no “useful” internet at the time and there also wasn’t any Amazon.com. In addition to this, there was no Barnes & Noble Bookstores at that time either. Trying to find a book that nobody had, was not an easy thing to do, but I was determined and so I kept at it and tried to figure out where I should look next.  Along the way, somebody told me that this book was no longer in circulation, which was discouraging to say the least.





After about 2 months of doing this, on March 24, 1996, after attending a service at “The Living Enrichment Center”, a “New Thought” Church that we were going to at that time, I decided check out the bookstore to see if there were any new books on their bookshelves. My wife who was with me, knew that I had been looking all over for this one particular book.

As I was looking at the books, in the LEC Bookstore, to my surprise, I found one, single, new copy, of this book, “Jesus and the Essenes”, sitting on a book shelf.

Suffice it to say I immediately picked it up off the shelf went over and showed it to my wife. We were both very surprised that I was able to find this book in the LEC bookstore. Then, my wife and I took this book to the bookstore teller, so that I could purchase the book and we could leave.

When I got to the teller, I explained to her how I had searched everywhere for this book and I couldn’t find it anywhere. Out of curiosity, I asked her, “Where did you find it?”  After spending a moment looking for a price tag on the book, she said to me, “You know, I’m not really sure; let me go check our records.” 

Then after spending probably about 5 minutes looking through their records, she came back and told me and my wife that she could find no records that anyone at LEC had ever placed any orders for this book. Furthermore, she said that she was also looking through all the records that she could find, because she was trying to figure out how much she should charge me for the book.

As it turned out, the only price on the book, was the price that was printed on its back cover, £6.95, which I believe must be in British pounds, because the book publisher, Gateway Books, was a British company. As a result of this she decided to sell it to me for $6.95, and I more than gladly paid her this price for this book.


Now, here’s the thing, while looking for this book, I used all of the methods that Seth tells us to use to create your reality. I focused on the book with excited emotion and with the expectation that I would find it. I also used my imagination and visualized seeing and reading this book many times. Furthermore, I kept on focusing on it, being determined that I was going to find it.

Given this then, and the interesting way that this book showed up in the LEC bookstore, do you think I created it?   I do.  :)

Yes, I do. This reminds me that about a year ago, I heard that Michael Talbot had written a book called Beyond the Quantum prior to his classic The Holographic Universe (one of my favorite non-Seth books). I thought that it might be interesting, but just put it in the back of my mind. The following week, a friend suggested that we visit a massive used bookstore in Jacksonville, FL that I had never been to. We spent hours there browsing an acre of used books. I was not looking for anything in particular, but was glossing over the physics section, and there was the book. Of course, I bought it. I was surprised to find that it had an entire chapter on Jane Roberts and Seth.

Two anecdotes re: the earlier mention of Audie Murphy: When I was 5 (1955), my mother took me to California on vacation. We went on a bus tour of the homes of the stars. I don't remember this, but much later my mom told me that we stopped at Audie Murphy's home, and he came on the bus and shook hands with all of us. Then, in 2014, I was on a bus tour of France with my parents and oldest daughter. It was a 60th anniversary tour of the route through France that  the 3rd Infantry Division had taken as part of the liberation. We stopped at the site where Audie Murphy had displayed his heroism. My daughter was somehow chosen by the French contingent to assist with laying a wreath at the memorial.

Hi LarryH,

Thanks for the info about the Michael Talbot book, "Beyond the Quantum". I checked out Amazon, and it sure appears to be a rather "rare" book. I've got it on my laptop now under a list of "Interesting Books" that I want to read. 

I've always been intrigued with the "Holographic Universe" concept, though oddly, as much as I enjoy physics and philosophical ideas, I've never actually read that book. I think that this has just been an issue of so many awesome books, and so little time.  :)

I checked on Amazon, to see if Michael Talbot had written any recent books but it says that he died of leukemia in 1992. I think the Holographic Universe book was his last one. That's too bad. :( 

I had no idea that Mr. Talbot knew anything about Seth and Jane.  I think that Seth and Jane have probably made a much bigger impact on the world and any of us actually realize.


That's really neat that you got to meet Audie Murphy, though its too bad, you don't remember this.
I know how that goes, there are several things my older sisters tell me that I did when I was little, and I don't recall any of them.  Some of them, probably for the better. :)

I like the sync event where your daughter got to assist in the laying of the wreath at the memorial.

On a visit to my parents’ home, I noticed that whenever my mom would read the paper or use her computer, she would always hold her bifocals up with one hand to see clearly. I suggested that she get prescription reading glasses. She seemed non-committal about the idea. Later that evening, we were watching a DVD, and I had the remote with me on a La-Z-Boy type chair. I got up once during the movie. When the movie was over, we couldn't find the remote. I reached around the seat to see if it had slipped between the seat and the armrests or the back, with no luck. Later, it occurred to me that I had reclined the seat, so I reclined it again and was able to reach much deeper between the seat and the back. Sure enough, I could feel the controller - but every time I touched it, it moved deeper until I couldn't reach it at all. I went around the back and was able to splay open the back cover and reach the DVD remote. I also found a golf tee, a pen, and a pair of glasses. They were my mom's prescription reading glasses that she had lost years ago - and they were still good.

Hi LarryH, Hi All,

Yes, I can definitely relate to the lost item in the recliner situation.

My wife and I both have a recliner and it seems like every time I move them around when I've vacuuming the floor, I find something that we've misplaced (pens, remote controllers, change, etc.).

That's great that you found your Moms glasses and that they were still in good shape.

I finally got the remarkable series of synchronicities related to Mickey Singer organized in chronological order:

Around 2004, I was living in Gainesville, FL working on contract for a company in Maryland. After a visit there, I was driving to Dulles Airport in my rental car when I passed a tan Chevy that had been stopped by the police. I returned the rental car and was on the shuttle bus leaving for the airport when a guy frantically pounded on the door. The driver let him in, and he sat next to me. It turned out that he was the guy stopped by the police for speeding. He excitedly asked where I was headed, and I told him I was returning to my home in Gainesville, FL. He said, "Oh, I went to University of Florida! Do you know Michael Singer?" I replied "No". "Well, you should really look him up! He's a great guy! We were roommates and best friends in college! He founded a successful tech company and recently sold it! He's a multimillionaire! He also founded an ashram in Alachua! You have to look him up!" Well, I wasn't going to look him up. But the next morning, the newspaper had a front-page article about Michael Singer.

Fast forward to 2015: I had moved to Alachua, and I was going to buy a book for an acquaintance at a used book store. It was Insights for the Age of Aquarius by Gina Cerminara, whom I had met 40 years before. It had been on the shelf for months, but it wasn't there anymore.

But on the same shelf was a book called Sai Baba The Holy Man and The Psychiatrist by Samuel H. Sandweiss, MD. I bought it because I had also met the author 40 years before. A mutual acquaintance had invited me to "Dr. Sam's" home, a beautiful modern wood and glass structure near the ocean in San Diego. It was an informal gathering of 8-10 people, most of whom were devotees of Sai Baba. The elderly woman with a thick Russian accent and wearing Indian garb who sat next to me that night was world-renowned yoga instructor Indra Devi. It turns out from the book that I bought that she was the one who first introduced Dr. Sam to the teachings of Sai Baba.

Having filed in the back of my mind the prior synchronicity regarding Mickey singer, another book that I bought that night, also from the same shelf, was his book The Untethered Soul. In summary, I went into the bookstore looking for a book by someone I had met 40 years ago and walked out with a different book by someone I had met 40 years before and a second book whose best friend I had met 11 years before.

I finished the Singer book, and it spoke to me unlike any I had read in some time. Then after I finished it, there was an article in the paper about the owner of the bookstore where I had bought it. In the article, she said that her favorite book was The Untethered Soul. So, with the Universe screaming at me, I finally decided to go to this guy's audaciously-named "Temple of the Universe", which it turned out was only 5 miles from my home. Then I would finally tell him his old college buddy said 'Hi' 11 years before.

Over the prior few months, I had gotten to know Bill, the guy who lives across the street. In our earliest conversation, I learned that he used to live next door to the founding family of the company that I was then working for. He watched their kids grow up, including the company's current CEO. I later learned that he once lived in Oceanside, CA, where I had moved from in 2003. Both of his children were born in the same hospital in Oceanside where my younger daughter was born.

So I finally went to the Temple of the Universe, and as I walked up to the entrance, I noticed two people ahead of me, and I recognized the man's voice. I asked, "Bill?" It was my neighbor. He asked if I had followed him there. I said, "No, long story."

We went into the 70's modern wood and glass structure. Most of the 50-plus people who eventually arrived sat on pillows. Bill and I sat on some of the few chairs. The walls had many pictures of Hindu gods and gurus as well as Buddhist and Christian images. Everyone was quietly meditating. Then some people started to play instruments and sing. After a while, I started to wonder if this was really going to work out for me. Finally, Michael Singer came in. He sat cross-legged on the floor and started to play an electronic keyboard and sing. Most others joined in. I would later find out that Singer wrote the music that he was playing. After the singing was over, he spoke without notes for at least an hour, and it was as amazing as I had found his book to be. Afterwards, a lady announced that she would soon have 72 copies of Singer's newest book, The Surrender Experiment at her book store (of course, she was the lady in the newspaper article). Later, we all gathered in the middle of a field, and Bill introduced me to Singer. Bill also introduced me to the owner of my daughter's favorite yogurt shop. Then, he took me on a tour of the grounds.

I later read The Surrender Experiment, which was, by the way, full of examples of synchronicity.

I only went to the temple a few more times, carpooling with Bill. But as we got to know each other, we discovered that not only had we  both lived in Oceanside, CA, and the same two cities in Florida, we had also lived about 5 miles apart in Orange County, CA and had also lived in Dearborn Heights, MI. Furthermore, he had been brought up in Hamtramck, MI, which is surrounded by Detroit, and I lived in Detroit for a year. So we had both lived in the same six metropolitan areas in three different states. Then in 2017, I went to a cousin’s wedding in Detroit. It had been a Polish Catholic Church but was now only used for weddings. I texted Bill with a pic of the interior, and he immediately replied that the church was where he attended as a kid.

Last year, my former wife, a professor at Goddard College in Vermont, was meeting with several colleagues, and one of those in her department started talking about Mickey Singer. She mentioned that I knew him, and he said that he and Mickey were "best friends". The next time I saw Mickey, he confirmed that he has known her colleague for many years. So this series of synchronicities starts and ends with two people who claimed to be “best friends” of Mickey Singer’s.

Hi LarryH,

Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow.

I wouldn't have thought that this many sync events could all occur and be so interestingly interrelated.

Wow. :)


I went to the University of Florida (Go Gators) in the fall of 1976, directly after getting out of the Air Force.
I lived on the 3rd floor of the Murphy Hall Dormitory for that 1 quarter, which as directly across from the UF football stadium. After this, I decided I wasn't quite ready for another 4 year commitment, but I stayed in Gainesville until the summer of 1977 when I travelled across the country and ended up in Oregon.  I sure had a lot of fun in Gainesville.  :)

Sometime in the early 1980's I saw a documentary on television about the various guru's of India. In this documentary, they talked about Sai Baba and mentioned that many people have claimed that he could materialize various items like rings, out of the air.  More recently I purchased a book title, "Sai Baba, Man of Miracles" by Howard Murphet, who was a follow of his. Howard definitely seems to believe that Sai Baba could actually materialize objects from nothing.

I've always wondered whether Sai Baba was the man that Seth was referring to when he said: "One such man has already been born in India, in a small province near Calcutta, but his ministry will seem to remain comparatively local for his lifetime."

This quote comes from "Seth Speaks" Chapter 21, Session 586, where Seth was talking about the men of miracles who will be born prior to the second coming of Christ.  As I understand it, Sai Baba lived in Puttaparti, which is not near Calcutta.

Most of those who were present at Dr. Sam's home that one night had been to India and had seen alleged miracles. The first time I had ever heard of him was in a yoga book in which this story is told: A woman comes to visit Sai Baba, and he asks her why she is wearing only one earring. She explains that her husband had given her this pair of earrings, but she had lost one of them. Her husband had since passed, but she wore the one earring to honor his memory. Sai Baba then asked, "Do you love me enough to give me your earring?" She replies that she does and hands him her earring. He hands it back along with the one that she had lost.

Interesting that you also lived in Gainesville and recently purchased a book on Sai Baba. From my perspective, the jury is out on him. There is a YouTube that suggests he used slight of hand, but if so, manifesting a specific earring is pretty good slight of hand. In Dr. Sam's book, he was quoted as saying that chakras don't exist. Food for thought.

Hi LarryH,

I've known about Sai Baba for probably about 40 years now. I recently learned about the Howard Murphet book and decided to get a copy because Howard takes a more "Western" approach to things and wasn't just another one of Sai's local disciples (see link to Howard Murphet book below).

I don't know if Sai actually materialized things or not, but I do believe that it may be possible for a man to do such things. Seth's teachings make me think that often, the only thing that limit us is our beliefs.


On the other hand, (I know, this is going to sound strange now that I've just stated what I did in the last sentence) I've never really been sure that the "chakra" concept is valid. I've always kind of felt like this concept was some past gurus explanation for how the energy field works and it was and has been accepted as valid without question for perhaps many thousands of years.  For some people, this chakra system is accepted without question.

From the writings of the critical historical scholars of both the Hebrew bible and the  Christian bible, I have come to question many of the accepted beliefs of many of the worlds religions. 

To me this accepted belief that chakra's are valid is kind of like the accepted belief in the caste system or in the belief that you must find a Master teacher, or Guru, and follow him.  I believe that participating in a Guru / disciple relationship, can be risky and potentially be very unhealthy or dangerous such as with Charles Manson or Scientology.

I don't think that a belief in chakra's is unhealthy, but it may not be valid and just like many things, those who people who "believe" in chakras, just like those people who don't "believe" in synchronistic events, generally experience their belief systems, because they create there own reality.

For me, I like Seth's inner sense idea of the energy field tissue capsule.

I've always taken the Western stance that chakras are somewhat correlated to the endocrine system, though I don't believe there is a 100% correlation in location and function. It may be that there is some distortion in the original intuitive concept. Regardless, as you say, if one believes in the validity of how one deals with and interprets chakras, they become real for the purposes of that individual. I was just surprised that a spiritual teacher from a Hindu culture would say that. Then again, the Christ story, from Seth or the bible, upset conventional thinking of the time and place.

Hi LarryH,

Yeah, I agree.

From what I've learned about Sai Baba, he messages seemed to be much more aligned with love and helping each other. There didn't seem to be much of a Hindu influence in his teachings, unlike many of the other teachers from that part of the world.

If you don't mind me prying too much, I was wondering why was that?

jbseth, I found the chanting and singing in a language that I didn't understand to be boring and repetitive; if I didn't get one of the few chairs, I had to sit on the floor for about 2 hours, which I found painful; I enjoyed when Mickey finally talked, but it was essentially just like reading The Untethered Soul with different ways of saying the same things; I had other options that I found more to my liking. I think I went 5 or 6 times total. I will always value having gone, but it had diminishing returns for me. I may or may not go again.

Hi LarryH,

Thanks for your reply.

I was just wondering if you didn't go back because you moved out of state or something like that. 

Yeah, I'm no longer comfortable sitting on the floor for more than about 20 minutes, much less 2 hours. That would never work for me. Plus I'm really a big Seth fan; something would have to be very good to make me want to sit on the floor for 2 hours.   :)

I think there is some truth in the chakras, linked to hormones in the body:

Hi Sena,

I used the Seth search engine to take a look at what Seth has to say about chakras. I thought that this would give us something interesting to talk about. To my surprise, it appears that Seth never said anything at all, about the chakras, which I find really hard to believe.  The only statement made about the chakras from the search engine, I've copied below.

This statement comes from "The Unknown Reality, Book 2,  Appendix 19, Note 5. 

In this statement, Rob is referring to a comment that was made by Jane made prior to a Seth session, where Jane was talking about rubbing her eyes in a circular motion, where the third eye would be.

Then, in Note 5, Rob explains how in this comment made by Jane, the third eye is related to the chakras.  Below is this statement from Note 5 made by Rob.
 


UR2 Appendix 19: (For Session 712)

[... 69 paragraphs ...]

Many are familiar with the Hindu discipline of Yoga. In that ascetic system of breathing, meditation, and postures, the third eye corresponds to the sixth chakra, as one starts counting the positions of those seven nonphysical wheels of psychic energy from the base of the spine to the brain’s cerebrum.

Seth actually has very little to say about Eastern philosophies. This I take as a mark of his genuineness. Suppose there was a fake channeler, he/she would tend to spout New Age stuff, much of which is from Eastern philosophies.

Hi Jbseth,

I'm starting to wonder if Seth knew if he spoke about certain topics then the books never would have been published.
Maybe that's why he didn't mention much on the chakras.
I'm kinda surprised at times Seth even got published. There is a control structure on this planet that doesn't like to be challenged.

Hi Sena, Hi T.M., Hi All,

The more I think about this issue of Seth having never said anything about the "chakras", the more I believe that this was probably just not a high priority discussion item for him, and it just never came up.

In addition to this, it appears that Seth never spoke said anything about "Chi", the Chinese concept of the vital force behind all of life, or the related Hindu concept of "Prana" either.

Again, maybe this was probably just not a high priority discussion item for him, and it just never came up.


Hi T.M.

I don't think that Seth ever worried about certain topics being to "hot" to publish.  On the other hand, I do think that Jane was concerned that some these topics were too "hot" for her personally, and as a result of this, she did block Seth on occasion.  Along with this, she also never for example took the time to gather the information from Seth for the "Christ" book and I'm pretty sure that this was very much intentional on Jane's part.

I don't personally believe however, that this had anything to do with why Seth didn't discuss the chakras.
