5. Synchronicity or serendipity
Have you ever had a string of events happen in a way that seemed special or out of the ordinary? You might refer to these events as “serendipity” when in fact they may have been something known as “synchronicity.”
What is synchronicity? Synchronicities are moments of meaningful coincidence, where our inner and outer worlds align. Often synchronicity is a good way to tell that you are on the right soul path because everything feels as though it is unfolding without your conscious effort. You might even have the sensation that Life/God is playing an active hand in making your dreams or aspirations come true.
It is my personal belief that nothing happens by chance, and coincidence is an illusion. I believe, at a core soul and spirit level, everything is interconnected. Science attests to the fact that everything is energy. So what is synchronicity? In my mind it is when the vibration of our thoughts matches with the vibration of our personal destinies. Picture a funnel of water: you don’t need to force the water to go through, the water goes through effortlessly.
So watch out for moments of synchronicity — they are powerful reflections that you’re on the right path.
6. Gut feelings
A gut feeling is an unexplainable sensation that tells you to do (or not do) something. Another synonym for this phrase is the word intuition. We all know what intuition is, but most of us have trouble listening to it.
Intuition is different from the inner voice of fear because it is subtle, calm and centered, as opposed to being frantic or aggressive. This is a very important distinction to make. Many people believe they are being guided by intuition when in fact they are being guided by their fearful inner talk.
Intuition, or gut feelings, can be thought of as the voice of our souls communicating to us. Whenever you feel drawn towards something or someone (without a fearful motive), you can be sure that this is your soul trying to guide you.
7. Visions during meditation
Meditation is another way to contact your soul. That calm, spacious, infinitely loving space you have entered before (even for just for a few seconds)? That is your soul space.
Meditating for long periods of time (30 minutes or more) is a powerful way to experience what has been referred to as the mystical experience. One common mystical experience involves tuning into visions or spontaneous names while you’re meditating. These visions or names might be of your current spirit guide, or could directly be a message from your soul.
I’ve even had people tell me that they’ve received unknown songs or melodies during meditation. Personally, I have experienced spontaneous visions and words.
But how can you tell apart from normal mental chatter from visions, names or songs from your soul? Typically, the images you see or words you hear will have a specific theme that seems foreign (e.g. it could be from an ancient culture), and they will be very repetitive. You will also have the sensation that somehow they are important for you to pay attention to.
