A few days ago I received a link to a mind-blowing account of synchronicity reported by Dean Radin on YouTube. Dean Radin is an amazing parapsychologist who is the author of three books including the award-winning The Conscious Universe (HarperOne, 1997), Entangled Minds (Simon & Schuster, 2006), and the 2014 Silver Nautilus Book Award winner, Supernormal (Random House, 2013). I am a great admirer of his work.
After sharing this video on FaceBook I received this wonderful account of a somewhat similar synchronicity from a friend, Jon Decker, a retired educator and chiropractic doctor. He has kindly allowed me to share it with you, dear reader:
“I graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in June of 1988 and received my Pa license to practice in September of same year. I went to work with my former Chiropractor, who had a very successful practice in Philadelphia. Although I was a 38 year old man with a B.S., M.Ed. and now a D.C. (Doctor of Chiropractic degree) I was being paid $300.00 per week. Needless to say, I was very unhappy. I was contemplating what to do when I remembered a week-long seminar I had taken in the mid-70s called Silva Mind Control in which we had learned to do “creative fantasy”.
“I must inject some Philadelphia geography here for my story to have its fullest impact. Philadelphia was very well planned and laid out in grid fashion. Dividing the city is Broad Street (which would be 14th St. if not named Broad) which runs North and South, dividing downtown West and East. The East side of Broad St. runs from Broad in declining numbers to 2nd St. then Front St., then the Delaware River. I was working on the West side of Broad Street and had a gentleman’s agreement that if I left the office I was working in, I would not practice Chiropractic on the West side of Broad.
“Having remembered Silva Mind Control, I sat down, relaxed and using techniques from Silva went to my alpha level. I imagined a practice for sale, immediately, somewhere between Broad St. going East to 7th Street (about 7 blocks) and from Market St. (North) to South St. (South) (about 7 blocks). So we have a square 7 blocks by 7 blocks. I imagined that this practice would be for sale for $10,000.00.
“I then came out of my alpha level and laughed at myself. A practice for $10,000 would be so ridiculously low priced, let alone my very specific parameters.
About an hour later a good friend called and knowing how bummed I had been wanted to take me out for a drink to a bar called Uncles to cheer me up. I declined, but he was persistent so I agreed to go. While ordering our drinks at the bar, the bartender asked Jerry (my friend) if he knew of any good Chiropractors in town. Of course Jerry told him I had just become one. I asked the bartender if he already had a Chiropractor and he said he did, but that the guy was leaving town in a couple of weeks. I asked if the Chiropractor had sold his practice and the bartender responded that he had tried, but that no one had shown interest. I got the name of the Chiropractor and his address and went there the next day. He had an office with x-ray, computer, billing software and was seeing about 30 patients per week. He had purchased a practice in Virginia and was taking over in 2 weeks down there. I asked him what he was asking for the practice and he responded that he had given up trying to sell it, so he would settle for $10,000.
“This practice, which I bought that day was located in the middle of the block on 11th St. between Spruce and Locust Streets, which was almost at the middle of the parameters of the square I had imagined.
“As I finish this testimony, my arms and legs are covered in goosebumps as they always are when I relate this true story.”
Thank you Dean and Jon, for sharing your stories. I have written other posts on this blog about synchronicity including Ilene Weiss’s Strange Synchonicity, Holotropic Synchronicity and More Than Co-Incidence. For more simply press the tag “synchronicity” in the word cloud to the right.
