One of the most common entry points into Jung’s analytical psychology is his work on synchronicity, the principle of meaningful acausality. This uncanny phenomenon can be very disorienting: events suddenly take place in a manner that appears connected to our own internal psychological state but we’re at a loss to explain how that could be the case.
For this purpose, I have written a one-page summary (Synchronicity Guide), as well as a 30-page document detailing how I have extracted self-knowledge from some of my own synchronistic experiences (Synchronicity: Examples of Meaningful Acausality).
I hope these two documents can help people get a handle on this ‘new’ phenomenological space, as it is not obvious to know what form of participation it wants from us. I also hope it brings some comfort to those who think they are alone in this process or are struggling to keep their sanity.
