The Healing Power of Synchronicity: Christine Clawley, EP 256

Or listen to an audio version HERE on Anchor.fm!

Filmmaker Christine Clawley entered into the reality hiding in plain sight through a life threatening disease. Like many healers, she emerged empowered with greater resources for helping others. She widened her ability through an uncanny connection with a woman she had never physically met who knew Christine’s hidden life story.

Christine Clawley is a therapist and film maker living in Tucson Arizona. With a Master’s of Arts in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. After overcoming the life-threatening Necrotizing Fasciitis in 2008, she embarked on her own journey of healing and self-understanding through exploring various modalities and techniques and wishes to share what she has learned with others and assist in their healing.

Prior to contracting this illness, she received many dreams and messages that something was out of balance within her life and body and eventually foreshadowed her illness. She spent about a month suspended in a medically-induced coma during which time she had many dreams that mirrored what was happening to her on a physical, emotional, and spiritual level. www.lucidawakening.com

Precognition- A Better Way to Explain Synchronicity: Eric Wargo, EP 253

Or listen to an audio version HERE on Anchor.fm!

According to Eric Wargo, dreams are disguised presentations of the future. Eric describes three steps for increasing precognition: 1) record your dreams, 2) In the morning, free associate to what your wrote–what is the first thing you think about when you read the dream? 3) That night read your dream diary for that morning and some previous mornings and their associations. You will likely find connections between daily life events and the associations. With practice you will become more able to see future events.

NDEs, Transformation, and Apocalypse: Bruce Greyson, EP 247

Or listen to an audio version HERE on Anchor.fm

Bruce Greyson, MD, a world leader in Near Death Experience (NDE) research, has systemically described the patterns of NDEs. His research shows that experiencers report tunnel-like travel, seeing the light, feeling immense love and reduced fear of death. They also report an increased frequency of meaningful coincidences afterward. The experiencers return to tell us that we are embodied here on Earth to attend Earth University to learn from the prevailing polarities of our earth bound existence.

Bruce Greyson, M.D., is the Chester Carlson Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry & Neurobehavioral Sciences and Director Emeritus of the Division of Perceptual Studies at the University of Virginia. He co-founded the International Association for Near-Death Studies, for 26 years edited the Journal of Near-Death Studies, and has published extensively on near-death experiences.

Surprise! Here comes the Trickster!: David Strabala. EP 246

Or listen to an audio version HERE on Anchor.fm

It isn’t surprising that my guest today, David Strabala (STRAY ba la), identifies with the archetype of the trickster in stories, or that this energy called him to make the award-winning feature documentary, “What Is Synchronicity?” He carried a trickster role from birth, as the surprising 13th child of parents who were 50 and 46. As tricksters often do, he has crossed many boundaries in his life, starting with the two generations he straddled — those of his siblings and of his nieces and nephews, five of whom are older than he is. On the way to making his synchronicity film, he threaded career boundaries as a journalist, clinical social worker and storyteller. He brings both personal and professional stories of the trickster today for healing our world. www.whatissynchronicity.com
