Synchronisities: Dance with the Cosmic Flow

10479723_862760080419881_4030678774362004685_n

We are being led. There is a presence moving through our heart, mind and soul that guides and directs us. Meaningful coincidences or synchronisities, open us to new insights and help us to understand ourselves and what is happening around us in new ways. Synchronicity is intuition expressed in the outer world.

Synchronisities are no accident. The universe has carefully orchestrated the seemingly impossible convergences of things, people, events and conditions. It does not matter how great or small the coincidence may be. We immediately recognize when we intersect with the cosmic. Although others may not always be able to feel and see it, when we are touched by the transcendent, we know it. The heart smiles, the mind opens and like an olympian gymnast, the soul joyously flips and leaps.

Synchronisities provide us with a glimpse into a reality that we have forgotten. They speak to the authentic self that is comfortable and at home in the realm of cosmic truth. Yet, despite the powerful affect that a synchronicity can have on us, we all too soon attempt to dumb it down by rationalization. We want to creep back into the logical and rational, as if the cosmic doors had not flung open. The thinking mind wants to take charge and explain away the magic and unexplainable, Don’t let it. Live with the mystery and allow it to flow through the mind, body and spirit like a healing balm. Synchronisities invite us to experience life through the cosmic portal of connection and oneness. Soak in the deep rays of the universal life force current and allow it to promote and support aspects of self that we may not always have the courage to know. Here are some suggestions that can help to increase the flow of synchronisities.

Ask

Simple, but true, when we ask for synchronisities, we experience them. As we let go of our expectations of how and when they occur, they naturally flow into our life in surprising ways. Just make the intent and allow the universe to manifest it. 

Notice

How ever big, small or insignificant they may seem to be, the effect that a synchronicity  has on our heart and soul is what matter. When we notice synchronisities and embrace for them, they multiply.

Communicate

Imagine synchronisities as a form or communication with the universe. We don’t always notice when divine presence is answering and responding to our needs and requests. Synchronisities let us know that we are known and heard. They are a calling card informing us that we are being watched over and that we are in the flow of our soul’s current.

Act

Synchronisities alert us to possibilities and open us to higher wisdom and love. Noticing and acting on them strengthens our soul energy and guides us into the positive. Even though life can at times, be challenging, synchronisities remind us that unexpected good fortune can come to us to in surprising ways.

Have Gratitude

Live with the awareness that a wonderful personally crafted surprise is on its way. Say, thank you, blow a big kiss and dance with the cosmic flow of the all that is. The positive and abundant energy of  universal divine joy and creativity is available, wherever we are and in whatever we are doing.

Are You Intuitively Sensitive?

imagesYour intuition is an integral aspect of your core self. Along the journey of uncovering and claiming your authentic self, your intuition will increase. To varying degrees you may experience some of the common characteristics of intuitively sensitive people. These include, feeling other’s emotions as your own, knowing what others are thinking and having spontaneous insight into other’s health, issues and problems.

Here are a few other shared intuitive tendencies.   

Feel and See Spirit Presence

Do you ever see orbs, a glow of energy around another or streaks of light? Do you ever feel that you are not alone? Have you ever felt a touch on your shoulder or hand, a warm embrace or waves of coolness or warmth? These are often signs that you are in the presence of a loving spirit. Trust your intuition. If you feel as if a family member, angel or spirit presence is with you offering love and support, try not to get caught up in doubt and questioning yourself. Feel the presence and listen and tune into any messages your may receive.

Have Premonitions of Personal and Global Events

Have you ever known when something was going to happen? Can you look at another and know their character? Have you ever felt feelings of fear, stress or grief and a day or so later a natural disaster or large scale tragedy has occurred?

Intuitively sensitive people are precognitive. You may not always know what, when and where an event will take place, but you may feel and know that something is off or is going to happen. Quite often, the emergence of sudden and intense emotions, only make sense several days later when a positive or tragic event takes place.

Intuitive Dreaming

Oftentimes your intuition will first surface through your dreams. Because dreams are usually metaphoric and symbolic in nature, it is not always clear which dreams contain intuitive insight. If you suspect that you are having dreams that foretell future events or provide you with previously unknown information about others or events, write them down. Keep a journal of your dreams and be alert to events and experiences that confirm a dream’s content.

Heightened Awareness with all Five Senses.

Bright lights, noise, smells and even tactical sensations can be irritating and over stimulating. For instance: Artificial lighting might give you a headache. While others might enjoy the scent of a fragrance or perfume, you may feel overwhelmed and lightheaded or dizzy from it. You become anxious at the sound constant or loud noise. You need periods of silence and quiet to relax and unwind. You prefer wearing all cotton or other natural fibers. Polyester and other man-made fiber clothing can cause you to itch, scratch or break out. 

Sensitive to Others Needs

You know when others are in pain, sad, depressed, struggling and what will help them. You are often drawn to those who are in need and have the knack of saying exactly what they need to hear. You are caring, warmhearted and sensitive to the needs of others. Oftentimes you would rather suffer than see those around you in pain.

Feel tired, Exhausted and May Have Trouble Sleeping

Sometimes it all becomes too much. You may feel overwhelmed by this chaotic, overstimulating and demanding world, but you do not always know how to take care of yourself. When you should be resting and recharging during sleep, you may instead be restless and toss and turn. If you are an open intuitive receptacle, other’s thoughts and feelings, may pour in while you sleep.  In an effort to shut out the demands of others and decrease your sensitivity to your environment, you may try to shut down and cut yourself off from your innate sensitivities. Unfortunately, this may only increase your feelings of exhaustion and inner stress.

Have Spiritual Depth

You may not be religious or follow a particular spiritual path, yet you have a sense of knowing and connection to a greater force of love and wisdom. While others may discuss and theorize about the existence of a God or spiritual force, you may not want to join in. Your sense of spirituality is lived and experienced. You are likely to notice opportunities to act in kind and loving ways to others. You give more than you ask for and expect from others. In your heart and soul you know that your life has purpose. You may not always know what it is, but you know that you are here to be of service to others and the world.

If you are intuitively sensitive it is important to acknowledge, accept and learn how to use this innate gift for your highest good. Instead of being intuitively bombarded by the energy of others and the environment, you can instead, personally benefit and be a light of insight and service to others.

When Things Fall Apart

images-1Things fall apart. No matter how hard we try, not everything goes the way we hoped and planned. Even when we know that disaster is looming, we cannot always prevent it. People disappoint us and do things that we do not like. We may be comfortable, feel safe and secure in the day to day ups and downs that come our way and still a surprising and unexpected event can occur and turn everything upside down. Sometimes it is not a personal problem or issue of our own that causes us distress. A friend, partner, family member, co-worker, neighbor or your community or nation, confronts a misfortunate or challenge. Yet, we find ourselves as stressed and worried as if this problem was our own. Not being able to control or effectively change a situation for another can generate feelings of powerless.

Try not to blame yourself or others or become bitter when things fall apart. This is a part of life that we will never escape. No matter what you do, how safe you play it and how intelligent and competent you are, you will at one time or another experience unexpected change. Problems get solved, but only temporarily. Other or similar ones will crop up.

When misfortune knocks on our door and rattles us to the core, there may be little left of the life that we have known. Loss of a job, a devastating health condition, divorce, financial bankruptcy or the death of a loved one, not only changes our circumstances, they can also change the way we perceive ourselves. If we recoil in fear, we feel defensive and at the mercy of a cruel fate. However, if we make space in our lives to accommodate the inevitable, we can gain a sense of mastery and strength from our challenges.

When change comes your way, you can close down in fear or you can feel the depths of your emotions and allow them to soften you. Your safety and serenity does not come about by avoiding and controlling the flow of life. Instead, you can discover calmness in the midst of the storm by accepting what is happening and embracing your feelings.

Be in present time. When you find yourself, stressing and troubled by problems and challenges, breathe and acknowledge the good that is present and be open to perceiving what is happening with a new awareness and perspective. Don’t let your concerns for the future and pain from the past, cause you to imagine the worst. Take it one step at a time, being ever mindful that challenges call forward hidden, but potent aspects of your authentic self. Even though problems may initially seem overwhelming, you can discover a strength and compassion that you did not know you had. Distressing turn of events are often a calling card from your authentic self letting you know that you are capable of so much more than you may think.

How to Help A Lost Soul

soultoheavenDo you ever feel as if you are not alone? You sense that there is an unseen spirit being close, but it does not feel as if this is a loved one or anyone familiar who has passed over. Do you have a desire to be of service and help others? Open-hearted, intuitive and spiritual individuals who are willing to serve and assist others may unknowingly attract lost souls.

Sometimes people die and pass out of the physical body, but do not go to what we call the other side. A vibration of all love, forgiveness and peace, the other side is often referred to as the light, heaven, Elysium, nirvana, paradise or the summerland. It is the soul’s home in the afterlife where we encounter the divine presence and complete love. For various reasons there are times when a soul does not ascend into this higher vibration and instead clings to the physical world after passing out of the body.

This may happen when an individual passes over when they are confused, suffering from an illness such as dementia, under the influence of drugs or alcohol or anesthesia, die in an accident or experience an unexpected death. While some may simply not feel worthy to be going to heaven or do not believe in an afterlife and attempt to stay as close to the physical world. These are not ghosts who wish to frighten us and they are not powerful demonic spirits who can cause us harm, they are simply souls who have lost their way and need help. Because they are still focused in the physical world, they often do not recognize the many angels and their own loved ones in the spirit realm that may be trying to help them. Instead they are often attracted to loving spiritual and intuitive people in the physical world who can sense their presence and be able to help them.

It is likely that you will at some point encounter a lost or wandering spirit or ghost. There are many and they need assistance. When in the presence of a lost or wandering soul you will not feel frightened or scared. Instead you may feel their presence and their feelings of confusion or sadness and you will likely feel a desire to help. If you intuitively sense or feel that a lost soul needs your help it is best to go through the process of helping them over. Your efforts are never wasted. Even if there is not a spirit close by, you may unknowingly help an undetected lost soul miles away.

If you feel that there is a lost soul that is in need of help and this is not someone that you personally knew in the physical world, it is not necessary or even advisable for you to personally connect with whoever you are helping over. Because earthbound spirits are already focused in the physical realm, a personal connection with them only further confuses and keeps them bound here.

Your job in helping a lost soul over to the light is to act as a medium between the realms. It is important that you do not get personally involved with the lost soul. Instead, focus your efforts in invoking the presence of an angel, guide or a spirit in the light who knows and can influence them.

  • Do not ask for signs or phenomena to confirm the presence of a lost or wandering soul. This only makes crossing over more difficult. It is enough confirmation that you or another has felt or sensed a presence. There is never any harm with this process.
  • Imagine that you are surrounded by the white light of protection and ask for angels and beings from the light to be present to assist you and the lost soul.
  • Ask for a divine loving presence from the light to draw close to the lost soul. I ask for Mother Mary or Archangel Michael and their angels. However, ask for the presence of whatever divine being you feel most comfortable with. As you invoke their presence imagine that the lost soul is surrounded by unconditional love.
  • You can send the lost soul a message through your thoughts and feelings and though seeing an image in your mind’s eye. Project the message to him or her that there is a place where they can feel the presence of unconditional love all of the time and that they can be in the company of their loved ones who have passed over. Let them know that the physical realm is no longer their home and that they cannot stay here any longer. Be firm but loving. Give him or her the assurance that there is a place of love and peace waiting for them.
  • Ask for a loved one in the light who knows the lost soul to come close. Spirit loved ones can be very clever and convince even the most confused souls to go with them.
  • Ask the divine being who you invoked and the spirit’s loved ones to take them directly into the light. In your mind’s eye imagine the lost soul going with their loved one, an angel or other divine being into the heavens. 
  • When you feel the energy begin to fade or if you receive an intuitive message that the soul has successfully made their transition into the light, imagine yourself surrounded by light. You may feel a sense of peace and joy and a bit lighter after this process. Ask your angels and guides to clear your energy field of anything that is not in your highest good. Thank all those who helped your guides, angels, divine beings and those from the other side.

During this process you may not receive any confirmation or evidence that you are connecting with the lost soul or that angels and divine beings are present. Trust that you are making a difference even if you do not receive the kind of evidence that you would like. You can do this process whenever and wherever you sense a lost or wandering soul. You are liberating and freeing lost and wandering souls into perfect love and peace and contributing to the ascension of the planet.
