"You have an amazing ability. Synchronistic events, (SE) happen when your inner and outer worlds seem to mirror each other. Your thoughts and feelings, your memories and experiences, are reproduced in the events around you as coincidences.
"It’s not just you with this ability, it’s everyone. This is not some world of science fiction or fantasy, you are doing it at this very moment. This seemingly magical ability goes largely unnoticed, unexplained and misunderstood. This ability is real. It’s not magic, but it is the core of most myths about magic."

About the Book: Synchronicity
An interesting mix of mythology, neuroscience, and common sense, this book takes a serious, but light-hearted, look at the way synchronicity works and the degree to which it can be controlled. Going well beyond the ideas of Jung, synchronicity’s discoverer, psychotherapist Dr. Kirby Surprise draws on anthropology, String theory, and Walt Disney to make the case that our internal states do effect external events, if only a small percentage of the time. He is trying to take the “magic” out of synchronicity, but he is also offering to make it a more useful tool in exchange. His premise is that we can all learn to have more control over the functioning of our brains, even the unconscious parts. He takes into account the laws of nature that many of us now take for granted, i.e. the Law of Gratitude. Say “Thank You!” to a synchronistic event and your brain will create more such events in your environment. It demonstrates that the person who perceives them causes these events, based on the activity of the mind. This book is loaded with science, but not weighed down by it. Surprise tells his tale in a conversational tone, illustrating his ideas with examples rather than lectures.
Dr. Kirby Surprise
Everyone wants to be happy. But somehow our happiness seems transient and dependent on what's happening in our daily lives. Acupuncturist and healer Peter Fairfield re-examines happiness and how we find it, in his new book, DEEP HAPPY: How to Get There and Always Find Your Way Back (Weiser Books, March 2012)
DEEP HAPPY offers a mystical, yet practical, approach to achieving everyday happiness. "Everybody wants to be happy, nobody wants to be in pain, and everybody suffers," says Fairfield. "Whether you call it stress reduction or pain management, we need to begin to feel our emotions, not be disconnected from them.”
DEEP HAPPY shows how anyone can drop beneath the noise of everyday life to feel calm and happy on the inside, even while weathering the inevitable storms that life brings.
