Do you want to discover some of the important signs that tell you your soul is trying to guide you?
Shamans, medicine people, mystics and sages throughout the ages have always known that the soul doesn’t speak the human language.
Instead, our souls communicate with us through symbols, metaphors, archetypes, poetry, deep feelings and magic. The human language is far too limiting to express the full spectrum of profound knowledge, insight, and revelation that the soul has to share.
As such, most of us were never taught to tune into the dancing rhythms of our deepest selves. Instead, due to our social conditioning, we have come to heavily rely on the mind only and its interpretation of reality. Unfortunately, our emphasis on hard data, facts and linear logic has left a gaping hole inside of us. We fill this empty hole with consumerism, addictions, violence and endless distractions.
Sometimes, a traumatic or extreme event in our lives shakes us out of our habitual way of perceiving existence. But usually, most of us tend to miss the big, glaring daily signs that the soul within us is trying to communicate with us. Not only that, but we tend to actively mistrust, ignore or doubt any sacred form of communication that we receive.
How can we begin to tune into the subtle voice of the soul and rewire our conditioned brains? How can we listen to our soul’s vital messages and nourish ourselves with its life-changing wisdom?
Soul Communication: 7 Important Signs to Look Out For
Soul communication isn’t just reserved for medicine men or women, or enlightened people; it is a birthright of every man, woman, and child. It is a vital part of soul work.
For years I lived without the guidance of my soul, actively ignoring it or numbing myself out from its voice. Since reconnecting with my soul, I have discovered that it offers endless gifts, insights, teachings, and direction that helps me to connect with my innate wholeness and life purpose.
Observing the people in our society, I’m saddened to see how soulfully emaciated we are. I can immediately tell whether a person has got in touch with their soul or not by the luster in their skin, the glow in their eyes and the type of energy they transmit. Unfortunately, most people are shells of what they could truly become. It’s almost like we are living our lives grabbing at whatever source of warmth we can scavenge when in truth, we are the fire and warmth we’re seeking for.
If you’d like to learn soul communication, you must first pay attention to the signs that your soul is whispering.
There are many types of signs out there, but below I have compiled some of the main ones you should look out for:
1. Dream signs
In the West, psychologists believe that dreams are the unconscious mind’s way of making sense of reality. But in ancient cultures, such as in Egypt and Greece, dreams were messages from the spirits, gods, or divine realm. Many indigenous cultures have also used dreams as a gateway to higher consciousness and revelation (e.g. native Americans).
These days, most healers agree that dreams express important messages and truths about our lives and destinies. In my experience, dreams can serve as doorways to new insight, reflections of true inner feelings, and even portals to interacting with spirit guides.
Pay attention to your dreams and the images, symbols, and scenarios within them. What stands out to you? You might like to keep a dream journal and record your immediate impressions. Please note that dream dictionaries can sometimes help you out, but they rarely convey the true message your dream is trying to transmit to you. Why? Dreams and the archetypes/symbology within them are highly contextual and personal. A snake, for instance, could be a positive sign for one person, and a negative sign for another. This is one of the most important signs that tell you that your soul is trying to guide you.
2. Lucid dreams
Spontaneous lucid dreams involve suddenly becoming aware that you’re dreaming while asleep. Becoming conscious within your dream world is not only spiritually symbolic (literally of “waking up”), but it is also an opportunity to explore the hidden realm of your unconscious mind. This opportunity from your soul is rare, or it could be constant without any effort on your behalf.
Regardless, it is possible to actively practice lucid dreaming. You might like to learn more about lucid dreaming here.
If you’re in the habit of having spontaneous lucid dreams, treat it as a sacred gift. Very few people have access to the depths of the unconscious realms. Treat this as an opportunity to ask yourself questions and find the direction that you wouldn’t be able to otherwise access in waking life.
3. Repetitive words or numbers
How many times have you looked at the clock and seen “11:11,” “12:12,” “13:13”? Many skeptics say that putting importance into repetitive words and numbers is a reflection of something called “confirmation bias,” but I personally don’t believe this is the case. It’s easy to be cynical and use the left-brained approach, but much harder to explore the personal meaning of these experiences.
Regardless of the meaning, we assign to repetitive words and numbers, the function of them is to momentarily “wake us up.” Otherwise, why would we give them so much significance? Whenever I see a repeated number or hear a name/word said constantly, I take it as a sign of soul communication.
So whenever you hear a picture, word or number repeated, ask yourself, what is the hidden message?
4. Animal omens and guides
Most of us come across animals every day. When you pay attention to these different animals, you realize that each one has a specific teaching, message or energy type.
However, it’s important to keep in mind that the meaning you assign to different animals is highly personal and not necessarily the “orthodox” meaning already established out there. So don’t feel the need to go by the “textbook” definition. Go with your gut.
One way of discovering your own unique meanings is to observe what animals you constantly come across every day. Watch them and try to understand what their teaching is. What are they revealing? How do they behave, move or sound? This is a powerful form of soul communication.
For example, you might constantly come across crows. Watching these crows, you might realize that they are always very loud and agitated. The message you might assign to these animal messengers could be that you need to pay more attention to the emotions you have suppressed so that they can be released.
