I was recently interviewed by Thanatos TV, a YouTube channel that specializes in documentaries and interviews on near-death experiences (NDEs) as well as more general research into consciousness and death. I not only wanted to share with you a link to my own interview on Thanatos but also let you know about some of the… Continue reading A wealth of after-death research on Thanatos TV
I recently had the great pleasure of being interviewed by Trish and Rob MacGregor on their podcast The Mystical Underground. Trish and Rob are both prolific authors, writing both fiction and nonfiction on paranormal topics. It was a lot of fun discussing coincidences with two people who have so much experience on the subject! Here's… Continue reading My interview on The Mystical Underground
I've written a lot about coincidence and synchronicity in the past couple of years--from my "Coincidence or psi?" article in the Journal of Scientific Exploration to my 618-page book The Source and Significance of Coincidences to my Psychology Today blog Mysteries of Consciousness. And while, in each of those places, I've briefly described some of… Continue reading Publication day! My memoir on love, loss, and synchronicity is out.
Coincidences aren't all fun and games.

I am… Continue reading Watch for my memoir The Supreme Victory of the Heart in May 2020
Do certain words seem to follow you no matter where you look? Psychologist William Braud actually conducted experiments to figure out whether the word coincidences he was experiencing were actually due to more than chance or selective attention. I describe his method--and his results--in today's Psychology Today post.
My interview with Mike Clelland on his podcast The Unknown is now available. Mike is himself the author of books about coincidence and synchronicity, especially as this phenomenon relates to owls and UFOs, and this makes for a deep, engrossing conversation. While I'm coming at things from quite a different starting point, what's amazing is how… Continue reading Synchronicity and Personal Transformation: My Interview with Mike Clelland
