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.
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 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.
