“It is probably true to say that all world religions believe that life-changing meaningful coincidences, or synchronicities, are signs that our lives are somehow mapped out, predestined in the world of Spirit. When we experience such meaningful connections we feel good, as if our actions are in harmony with “God’s Will” and that our lives are somehow on the right track.
“The will of God” does have deep meaning, and the long synchronistic episodes described in this book will help us explore some of it. Those involved had their understanding of reality turned upside down. In our case, conversations with the spirit of the Martyr Stephen, documented in Afterlife Teaching of Stephen the Martyr were surrounded with multiple synchronicities with UFO’s, Trojan horses, stainless steel, several themes from the Book of Revelation, “dead and not-dead”, “philosopher’s stone”, “the five wounds of Jesus” and many more. The stream of synchronicities continued for ten years and more, and in our case, seemed to give us personal experience of the truth of what Stephen happened to be teaching at the time.
The experiences compelled us to ask, “Are we and these events being dreamed up by - by a Mind that encloses all of us? Does this Mind dream ourselves up, as well as some of these strange events where we can trace no possible cause and effect?” That theory made some sort of sense, and that is why I name my book, Into the Wider Dream. Some people might argue that it can also help to enrich our understanding of what it means to be “In Christ.”
