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.

Four Misunderstood Intuitive Signals

10405683_10154294606595247_7741343829002372226_nWhen we listen to our intuition something magical happens. Despite the conditions and difficulties that confront us, a way is made, a door is opened and the wisdom and grace of the universe flows into our lives. We are so accustomed to using our logic and reason to make choices and decisions, we all too often, disregard subtle intuitive guidance.

When we listen to and act on our intuition, unexpected and often surprisingly useful help comes our way. Yet, intuitive insight gives us even more than practical and concrete guidance and direction. It reminds us that we are more than we believe ourselves to be. There is a subtle and often mysterious transcendent presence that moves through our heart, mind and spirit. It connects us to one another and to a greater wisdom than our thinking minds can fathom. Intuitive awareness gives us insight about ourselves and the universe. It is the doorway through which the soul’s wisdom and love surfaces.

Our intuition continually sends us signs and signals, some we notice but many we disregard and are oblivious to. We are inclined to believe that receiving intuitive guidance is markedly  different then the way that we receive information through our other senses. Yet intuitive insight and awareness is intertwined throughout our moment to moment thoughts, feelings and experiences. 

Here are some often Misunderstood ways that your Intuition surfaces.

Your Thoughts: 

Although there often seems to be a discernible difference between thinking and intuiting, intuitive messages often emerge through our thoughts. Intuitive thoughts come into our awareness complete and as a cohesive whole. Finite mind chatter thoughts stream into our consciousness in a more linear way, one thought leads to another, then  another. They may cause confusion and doubt or leave us with more questions. Intuitive thoughts are ahha moments that assure us with a flash of knowing of their accuracy and truth.

For example: While driving the car or doing another repetitive task, the sudden surprising awareness of the solution to a pressing problem, is likely an intuitive thought.

Your Feelings and Emotions:

With a little awareness and focus you can become aware of the difference between an intuitive emotion and one that is being generated through biological and physiological responses. Most of our emotions and feelings originate in what we think and believe or are prompted by physical or mental unconscious triggers. Intuitive messages that emerge through your emotions are often sudden, all consuming and may seem inappropriate to the situation. They quickly shift us into unexpected feelings and emotions that are unrelated to our current thoughts.

Intuitive energy information may move through you as unexpected feelings of comfort, love and compassion that seem to contradict your current situation or emotional state of being.

For instance: In the midst of grief and loss, the sudden comforting feeling of peace and love that heals our heart and soul, is most likely an intuitive emotion.

Emotions such as fear and stress may also be intuitive messages that come to alert you to be cautious and extra aware of your environment or other conditions.

For instance: Feeling surprising stress about driving your usual route to work one morning despite no recent issues or problems, is likely an intuitive message.

Physical Sensations:

Physical sensations can be triggered by intuitive energy information. A tingling up your spine, the hair on your arms standing up, a feeling in the pit of your stomach or a buzzing in your head are common intuitive signals. They differ from physical sensations derived from normal biological processes like digestion or muscle twinges, in that intuitive physical sensations usually come with an instantaneous awareness, knowing or feeling.

For instance: The gut feeling in the pit of your stomach that something is not right about the contract that you are about to sign, is likely an intuitive message.

Unexpected Changes:

Intuitive messages often show up in our lives through events and conditions that unexpectedly fall apart or bring us good fortunate and positive benefits.

For example: Have you have done everything that you can to organize and execute a plan or project and something seems to come out of nowhere to put an end to it or to divert the expected outcome? Has a spontaneous opportunity or a surprising success ever easily and unexpectedly come your way?

These kinds of situations are a type of intuitive message that come into our lives to inspire and align us with our true soul path. They differ from plans that fall apart through lack of hard work and preparation or opportunities that come to us that steer us away from our highest good through wishful thinking and empty illusion. Outer intuitive messages that emerge through changes in our current plans and direction, transform us on a deep level. We inwardly sense that what has occurred in not an accident or lucky chance. Recognizing this as a call to a new path we are given the choice to trust our inner knowing or continue to ignore the signs. When we choose to pay attention and accept the wisdom of the message, we are never sorry. Good things come, even if we are initially frustrated or resistant.

Intuitive messages come to you from the core of your authentic self. They are the voice of your heart and soul. As subtle as they may appear to be, trust the little voice inside of you that alway recognizes truth.

Intuition and Your Authentic Self

644538_10152080331722702_925238413_n Intuitive awareness encompasses a broad range of possibilities and far-reaching perception. We often use our intuition to understand and tune into the practical and everyday issues of life, such as our finances, relationships and health. Yet, your intuition is also the key to knowing who you are. Intuitive awareness penetrates deep into your heart and soul where the authentic you resides.
Dharma is a Hindu word meaning one’s duty or purpose in life. In Buddhism dharma is the eternal truth of life, nature and the universe. You are here to discover and live your dharma. Your intuition is your inner compass guiding you into the heart of your authentic self where this truth resides.

Here are a few ways to get started.
Listen to your dreams
Pay attention to synchronicities
Spend time alone and ask your authentic self to speak to you
What opens your heart?
What truth about you are you resisting?
What are you Naturally Good at?
Act on what you know is true for you.

Intuiting Solo

??????????????????????????????? Have you had moments of crystal clear intuitive awareness? Do you sometimes feel that there is an inner presence that is leading and guiding you and acting in your best interest? Have you ever felt a shiver of excitement move through you when a spontaneous intuitive insight is proven true and correct? These are a just a few of the natural intuitive occurrences that motivate many to further develop their intuitive awareness.
One of the great gifts of intuition is that it enables us to feel closer to others. When you feel what another feels, tune into another’s thoughts or experience their aches and pains in your body, you become aware of your innate connection to others. In a similar way feeling the presence of a loved one on the other side or experiencing the intervention of an angel or spirit guide, assures you that there is life beyond the physical and it is loving wise and comforting.
The paradox of developing intuition is that although it provides us with a unique connection to others, we often develop it in isolation. If you are not fortunate enough to have supportive and interested family and friends or live in an area where you have access to intuitive development classes and group psi activities you likely are developing your intuition on your own. Although intuitive awareness opens new doors of possibilities and connection to all of life, it is initially a process of looking deeper within self. I write books about intuitive and medium development to give others the tools that I have learned and to help bridge the gap of loneliness that can accompany intuitive development. Still even though books serve an important role, practicing, developing and interpreting intuitive insights requires direct experience. Having another or a group to discuss and practice with is helpful. Yet, there can be hidden benefits to developing intuition, psychic and medium abilities on your own.
Spiritual Calling
Without the benefit of a class and teacher to lead you through intuitive exercises and help you to interpret what you receive, you may feel alone in a sea of chaotic intuitive phenomenon. But, you are not as alone as you may believe. You are being guided and supported by loving and wise spiritual guides and angels. When spirit comes knocking on your door with intuitive gifts, know that you are being called into a closer connection with the spirit realm.
Here are some suggestions for solo intuitive development.
• Trust yourself and release your fear of the unknown. The unseen is safe, reliable and is inherently positive and life-giving. Trust that you can communicate and receive its direction and blessing. The universe will respond to your intent to develop your intuition. Notice the magic all around you. The intangible is not as elusive as what it may seem. It will guide you, respond and support your efforts. There are many ways that the unseen communicates with you. Trust it when it does.
• Ask your angels and spirit guides for signs and synchroncities that will confirm when you are on the right track. Then trust what happens. The spirit realm communicates in unlimited ways.
For instance: Has a bird ever seemed to perch on your window sill soon after questioning an intuitive insight and it seemed to be more than a coincidence? Have you ever found coins or feathers, noticed repeating numbers or heard a meaningful verse of a song that seemed to give you a message. These and other similar synchronicities are common signs that you are in the flow of a greater knowing and awareness.
• Take time every day to listen. Relish the quiet and practice sitting silently in meditation. Take time to be in nature, live in the now and listen to the quiet inner voice.
• Find creative ways in your everyday life to take advantage of simple intuitive opportunities. For example: hold mail in your hands or intuitively focus on an email before you open it. Pay attention to any thoughts, emotions, words, numbers or awareness and knowing that surface.
• Notice the energy glow around others or surrounding events. Pay attention to whom or what feels energetically stronger or more compelling. In time you will find that those that seem to glow are often lucky, win, and have good health and generally experience events and situations that work to their benefit.
• Write down your dreams. Even if it seems that they are silly and make no sense, in time patterns and intuitive insights will emerge from them.
• Look at the circumstances of your life symbolically. Use your intuition to see the deeper message within the events, people, circumstances, relationships and conditions of your life. Approach all that you experience as an interactive dialogue between yourself and the universe. What is life attempting to teach you? Where are you experiencing discomfort, frustration or lack? Notice how changes in your thoughts, emotions and actions affect your outer and external experiences. Listen within for insight into the meaning and significance behind your day-to-day experiences.
Developing your intuitive abilities on your own can accelerate your spiritual-intuitive growth and strengthen your connection with the unseen. If you feel you have no support or that your friends and family do not understand your interest in psychic and intuitive awareness, know that you are strong enough to go it alone. There is an invisible presence that assists and guides you. As the Buddha said, Be a light unto yourself.

Three Ways to Make the Most of Women’s Intuition

     For generations the term “women’s intuition” has been used to describe the unexplainable, non-logical, sometimes quirky wisdom that women often possess. No one quite knows how or why intuition works. But it does. 

Intuition has been defined as simply knowing something without any reasonable and logical way of knowing it. Associated with the right side of the brain, intuition resides in the elusive realm of emotions, creativity and imagination, the domain of the feminine.

Everyday in ways that normally go unnoticed, our intuition is at work. We intuit the unspoken feelings and emotions of our partner, co-workers, children and even the check-out worker at the grocery store. We know when a loved one in the other part of the house or even miles away is struggling or having difficulties and we can sense the honesty or dishonesty of our children’s excuses and the car mechanic’s estimate with surprising ease.

Although we don’t always know how we know these things, when we listen to our inner voice and follow through with our gut feelings we are almost always right.

There are many ways that you can employ your intuition to make your life easier and frankly more fun.

Try these:

 Intuitive Listening

      Your intuition is telling you that there is something that your partner, who is slumped in his chair, needs to talk about. When you ask him he tells you there is nothing wrong.  Although this is frustrating it may be that he is unable to put into words what he is feeling. Give him the benefit of the doubt. He may not be intentionally withholding information. 

Instead of pushing him to talk, take a seat near him and sit quietly.  Take a long deep breath and relax. Come into an open hearted receptive state and listen within.  When you feel moved to talk, express from the heart what you are receiving. Do not lecture, push or tell him how he feels, instead use “I” statements and talk about what you are experiencing.

This simple practice will help your partner to relax, open up and communicate.

Open hearted intuitive listening is also affective with your children, other family members, friends and even co-workers.  It creates a calm intuitive environment of safety and love.

Intuitive Eating

      It’s been a long day.  You finally have a few minutes to relax. Before making your way to the couch or bed, you scan the refrigerator and cabinets for a special treat. A little chocolate, a piece of left over fried chicken, and some popcorn never hurt anyone, right? 

Before you grab the bag of tortilla chips, sit down, take a deep breath and listen within.  Imagine that your body can intuitively communicate with you. 

Ask within if you are hungry? If the answer is no, ask your body to reveal to you what is prompting the desire to eat.

There is a message behind the hunger, listen to it. You might find that emotions like loneliness, frustration or stress surface. You may be bored or want to fill an inner feeling of emptiness.

Instead of eating to dull the feelings, spend some time in inner listening.

Eating is a way to nurture ourselves, but there are other more affective ways. What is the best way to nurture and take care of you? 

Listen to your intuition and commit to those actions that will empower you with self care. Often times just listening within and acknowledging how you feel will help you to release the feelings and dissipate the gnawing hunger. Acknowledge all that you accomplished during the day and have loving compassion for you.

Intuitive Career Decisions

     Something feels off at work. You can’t quite put your finger on it, but you feel restless and find yourself scanning job boards for other employment possibilities. You talk to your manager and he tries to assure you that your job is secure. As much as you would like to believe this, that little inner voice keeps telling you to start looking.

At this point you have a choice. You can convince yourself that this is just your insecurity and caution speaking or you can without any outside evidence, listen and act on your intuitive impressions.

In these kinds of situations, I often advise people to pay attention to outer synchronicities that may reinforce your intuition. Synchronicity is the random occurrence of unlikely coincidence and a form of intuition. In this situation, you might for instance receive a call from a friend who randomly lets you know that the company she works for is hiring. While exercising at the gym you overhear a couple of people discussing a new division about to open in an exciting and innovative company. You have dreams of being in interesting places involved in new activity and wake feeling more sure and ready to pursue other career options. I have a friend who woke up at 2:00 in the morning, spontaneously went to her computer and looked at the job postings of a company that she had always wanted to work for. There was a job listed that was perfect for her. Two weeks later she was hired.

     Your intuition is like a muscle that must be exercised. Be creative and explore the many ways throughout the day that your intuition can guide you. As you do this you will become more adept at recognizing and confidently following through with intuitive messages. You will more often than not be glad that you did.

Grace and the Universal Law of Attraction

    

     The universal law of attraction states that to attract something into your life you must embody this same energy. Simply stated, likes attract likes. Supported by recent advances in science, this is more than a new-age belief. But here is the rub. To receive abundance, love, prosperity and all the good that we so much desire, we must know this experience. It must be our strongest magnetic energy. Otherwise we can only attract our illusive hopes or best assumption of what we desire.

Unfortunately many people do not have a strong enough inner experience of what they want to attract. This has been true for me, especially in the area of love. My father left when I was young and my mother was emotionally, spiritually and often physically absent. My desire for love and partnership was built on hopeful wishes and false expectations and this is what I attracted.

It has been through my connection with the spiritual realm that I have been able to shift this deficit. I have leaned on spirit like a lost child making her way through the dark woods.

As most of you know, I am almost the opposite of organized religion. Yet, Mother Mary has been a constant source of love and guidance. Mary is a spiritual being for all people, regardless of spiritual or religious orientation. She is the divine feminine most evolved expression of love and miracles.

Grace transcends the law of attraction. Whatever your circumstances, however spiritual or not you consider yourself, whatever your wounds, mistakes, background or choices have been. Grace fills, heals, replenishes, makes whole and completes. Mary activates grace in your heart, soul, body, mind and spirit. She empowers you to attract and co-create your goodness and abundance despite the conditions of your past and present.

I hope that you will consider learning more about Mary’s powerful message. The events of her life are a paradigm for living in the ascended energy of grace, synchronicity, intuitive communication with the spiritual realm and miracles.
