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.

You can pre-order Dr. Beitman’s new book Meaningful Coincidences due out in September here! https://www.innertraditions.com/books…

Eric Wargo has a Ph.D. in anthropology from Emory University and works as a science writer and editor in Washington, DC. He is the author of two books about precognition: Time Loops: Precognition, Retrocausation, and the Unconscious (2018) and Precognitive Dreamwork and the Long Self (2021).

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

Terry Marks-Tarlow: A Deep Dive into Fractals and Synchronicity, EP 243

I needed to know more about fractals so Terry agreed to present the talk she gave at a Yale Consciousness Conference. The slides are beautiful, the ideas penetrating. I became a student of a great teacher!

She is adjunct professor at Pacifica Graduate Institute, Santa Barbara and California Institute of Integral Studies, San Francisco.

Psilocybin, Depression, Synchronicity, Connectedness: Rosalind Watts, EP 241

Or listen to an audio version HERE on Anchor.fm

Psychedelics increase meaningful coincidences as psilocybin researcher Ros Watts tells us. Depressed clients treated with psilocybin experience increases in synchronicities but are sometimes bewildered and frightened by them. Psilocybin therapists also experience increases but are reluctant to talk about them.

These psychonauts discover basic nature codes which include sine waves, the web of human and nature connectedness, and the slow pace of substantial change. Connecting with Coincidence with Bernard Beitman, MD (CCBB) is now offered as both an audio podcast–anywhere that podcasts are available–and in video format on the Connecting with Coincidence YouTube channel.

Our guest, as Clinical Lead of the Psilocybin for Depression Study at Imperial College London, and Clinical Director of Synthesis Institute, Dr. Rosalind Watts recognised the potential of psychedelic therapy, but also its risks and pitfalls, namely that the psychedelic substance can open the door, but real, long-lasting benefits depend on substantial integration support. She is now the founder and director of Twelve Trees Integration, a global community with online and in-person aspects to support people in the months and years after their psychedelic experiences.

Twelve Trees focuses on helping people build their connectedness to self, others and the natural world which is the mechanism that Dr Watts discovered to be underpinning the changes observed in her psilocybin for depression research, leading her to develop a psychometric tool for measuring connectedness (Watts Connectedness Scale (the WCS)’. Dr Watts co-founded the UK’s first psychedelic integration group, and is a consultant psychologist for Small Pharma, investigating DMT as a treatment for depression.

Fractals-The Foundation of Synchronicity: Terry Mark-Tarlow, EP 239

Or listen to an audio version HERE on Anchor.fm

The universe is composed of fractals. From the cells of the body to far away galaxies, fractals move the patterns for patterns. Branching, for example, exists in neurons, lungs, capillaries, tree roots and branches, and snowflakes. Fractals are composed of pattern repetitions across both time and space. They merge our inner world and our outer world, governing intuition. They form the foundations for synchronicities.
