When God Winks ponders serendipity and coincidence, presenting the view that coincidence is actually a spiritual 'nudge' approving of direction and pointing out courses to follow. When God Winks is more than just a philosophical or spiritual analysis: it tells readers how to locate and consider the crossroads in life which offered new direction and meaning. Highly recommended.
A friend of mine bought me "when god winks" as a birthday gift. I can honestly say it was the best gift i've ever received. It literally changed my life! I always knew there was more to coincidence than meets the eye. It gave me the confidence to follow my instincts. the book taught me to map my coincidences and it is incredible how it works!
ALL of my life I have had the types of coincidences occur that this author talks about in his book. I would describe these things to my friends and ask if they, too, have situations like this. Most would either say "no," or that if they did they were not aware of it. I began to wonder if I was crazy. After reading this book, I know I am not alone! A great book.
I read this book over the course of a few days and then I went back and reread parts of it again. It gave me a lot to think about, just what do coincidences in our lives mean. It really made me think about my past and track all the coincidences so I could see how they've been influencing me all these years and encouraging me to go on. Now I keep a "wink" diary so I can use the coincidences and put myself in a position to get more of them showing me where I'm going or if where I'm going is right for me. The idea really reinforced that I did the right thing resigning my job last year, even though things have been ok on my own I still wondered...I don't wonder any more. I know I did the right thing. Really helpful, loved the stories and the section at the end of the chapters highlighted what the author was saying. Great book, I'm loving re-reading it again and again.
Anyone who has ever wondered if there was something more to coincidence than meets the eye, MUST READ THIS BOOK! Story after compelling story proves that there is something bigger than all of us guiding our paths. Squire Rushnell engagingly makes the case, in simple yet powerful terms, that you have messages of reassurance and hope being sent to you...and you alone...every day. When God Winks is just as the lady in the book store said, "A ground breaking book."
This was an enjoyable book from the first page to the last. We all have moments of coincidence and this book puts into perspective that these moments do not "just happen"...putting the focus on God. I love the imagery of God "winking" at such a moment as if to say, "Hey there kid, I'm thinking about you right now." Now whenever a coincidence happens in my life, I find myself winking back to say, "Thank You, God...I'm thinking about You right now, too!" Very well written. Hats off to SQuire Rushnell for an exceptionally good book!
This book was very mind opening and creative in the ideas of how coincidences are a sign of God leading your life into the right direction. I love how it gives you advice and clues on how to see the coincidences. This book was very interesting, it had a lot of different ideas from financial business to relationships. This book was great and fun to read.
I liked this book simply because it reaffirmed the faith I already have in the power of coincidence and because I've seen it work in my life as well as in other people's lives. If you enjoyed this, but wanted to delve further, I would recommend reading The Celestine Prophecy books. These books, through fictional tales, show you the importance of paying attention to coincidence. More often than not if you feel a connection to something or someone there will or is a reason for it. Just be courageous enough to explore it and keep yourself open to looking for the lessons new introductions and situations can teach you.
