The 9 Keys of Synchronicity: Open the doors to possibilities that are all around you, hidden in plain view
- About the Author
A synchronicity is an event in your life when things fall into place; a time when, without rhyme or reason, answers to life's questions appear out of the blue, in the form of coincidences. The 9 Keys of Synchronicity is an inspirational guide by global team consultant Dr Philip Merry introducing new research to help facilitate the occurrence of synchronicity on your journey of life. All of us have had times when things fall into place, when answers to life’s questions come from out of the blue without rhyme or reason. These fortuitous events, called synchronicity by psychiatrist Carl Jung, are the focus of this book by global team consultant Dr Philip Merry. Based on Dr Merry’s PhD research with global leaders and his 40 years consulting experience in 63 countries the 9 Keys of Synchronicity is an inspirational guide on how to benefit from life’s coincidences. Written with heart and head and integrating science with new and original stories, the 9 Keys reveal a unique and comprehensive model which will help you set the stage for synchronicity to come calling. Three keys identify how to manifest synchronicity in day-to-day life; three keys help you understand how to integrate synchronicity into your life and three mindset keys help to develop a life of synchronicity. A practical new tool called Synchronistic Inquiry is introduced. Synchronicity happens to all the time to all of us, but we often don’t see it even though it may be staring us in the face. Dr Merry’s unique and brand-new groundbreaking model based on PhD research and the latest science will help you recognize and harness the power of synchronicity to build a meaningful and successful life, and in the process become more of your authentic self by doing what you were put on this earth to do.
Behind every synchronicity is a miracle waiting to happen.

"Philip Merry has been a close colleague of mine for a few decades and has developed the Belbin team profiling business in Singapore and the region. It was Carl Jung the father of psychology who dubbed amazing coincidences as synchronicities, and Philip has always succeeded in turning coincidences into advantageous synchronicities. In The 9 Keys of Synchronicity, he combines Ph.D. field research, cutting edge scientific ideas and authentic stories, which make synchronicity abundantly clear and worthwhile to anyone who reads it, enabling them to thrive by taking advantage of life's divine coincidences."
