Visionary entrepreneur and spiritual teacher Paul O’Brien is a living example of an individual who walks the path of success. But not just because of his great decisions and perfect timing, both of which led him to build a multi-million dollar company – Paul is man who has dared to live his passion and to allow intuitive intelligence and spiritual selfhood to lead him on his journey.

In his new book, which recently hit best-seller status, Great Decisions Perfect timing, Paul shares what he has learned through his personal sojourn and now shares with so many others, that we are connected to an infinite intelligence and all it takes to walk the path of success, in whatever form it may come, is to ignite that connection. We had an amazing exchange that could have gone on for hours in which we talk about his own personal journey, the importance of creative imagination and how both synchronicity and intuition are key to making great decisions at the perfect time!


In this episode we discuss:

  • Self knowledge as key to personal success.
  • Three critical stages for visionary decision making.
  • How the I Ching can be used to “stimulate” intuition and assist decision making.
  • The importance of upgrading belief systems throughout life.
  • Learn to take risks that grow you.
  • The importance of creative freedom.
  • Belief vs. Faith (Is there a difference?)
  • How to “re-write” your life at any age using a visionary decision making approach.
  • Living the “synchronistic lifestyle.”
  • Two main components for making great decisions at the perfect time.
  • How perfect timing comes from a state of “no time.”
  • The paradox of intuition and synchronicity.
  • How to know the difference between the voice of your head and your heart.


Paul O’Brien is a visionary entrepreneur who invented a new category of software in 1989, which evolved to become the world’s largest astrology and divination website. He sold the company in 2007 and has since authored three books. Paul is a sought-after speaker, philanthropist and founder of the educational Divination Foundation ( For 30 years, he has also hosted the Pathways radio show, an interview program focused on personal and cultural transformation.

Paul’s book Visionary I Ching, The Book of Changes for the 21st Century, (Visionary Networks Press, October 2012) is a beautifully illustrated eBook that offers the reader insights into current conditions in their lives, and tools for managing change. The Visionary I Ching is a non-sexist, non-militarist interpretation of the oldest of humanity’s classical divination systems. The book is illustrated with inspirational art for each of the I Ching hexagrams. This modern version renders this ancient divination system truly useful as an enlightened decision-making tool for modern times and forms the backbone of’s online I-Ching features.

Paul’s first book Divination: Sacred Tools for Reading the Mind of God (Visionary Networks Press, July 2007) showed how authentic divination systems (like the I Ching) can help people make better decisions for better relationships, greater success and less stress. Paul teaches how you can use divination tools to stimulate your intuition to think outside the box around problems that logic can’t handle — especially strategic personal and professional decisions we now have to make more quickly than ever. The book illustrates how divination systems work, their history, psychology, and how to apply these tools for optimal results.
