Or listen to an audio version HERE on Anchor.FM


Your coincidences may begin with older and younger relatives as you tap into your family’s collective unconscious. Seeing coincidences brings you more coincidences, if you want to look for them. Anne Helene began as a teenager learning that we exist in the web of life. Coincidences illuminate the invisible currents that connect and unify us.

Dr. Anne Heleen Bijl, owner of Creatieve Consultancy, works for 35 years as an inspiring trainer and consultant in many organizations all over the world. Her approach is very professional and personal. She likes to connect: people, teams and ideas. She facilitates companies to achieve their goals and beyond, in a pleasant way. She loves meeting people, discovering countries and cultures. Working in Africa grew into a passion and she is president of the Flow & Go Foundation to empower communities. She creates movement, commitment and creativity: results are achieved effectively and opportunities discovered and picked up. She won several prizes for her concepts and approach. Coincidence and synchronicity occur often in her life; now she likes to share some extraordinary stories to make people think about it and arouse curiosity.

Our host Dr. Bernard Beitman is the first psychiatrist since Carl Jung to attempt to systematize the study of coincidences. He is Founding Director of The Coincidence Project. His book, and his Psychology Today blog, are both titled Connecting with Coincidence. He has developed the first valid and reliable scale to measure coincidence sensitivity, and has written and edited coincidence articles for Psychiatric Annals. He is a visiting professor at the University of Virginia and former chair of the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Missouri-Columbia. He attended Yale Medical School and completed a psychiatric residency at Stanford. Dr. Beitman has received two national awards for his psychotherapy training program and is internationally known for his research into the relationship between chest pain and panic disorder.
