Our intuition leads us in every facet of our lives if we let it. It guides us to see our world with clarity and perspective. It informs us of the steps to take or not to take on a given path at a given time and moment. If we allow ourselves to be open to its gifts, we flow in its harmony. We begin to see the synchronicities – the signs and the messages that the universe has for us.
And there are signs everywhere. I see them in the sky when the clouds form streaks and shapes that morph into some extraordinary form. I see them on the beach with heart and wishing stones, or other precious beach gems that call out my name or deliberately catch my eye. I see them in the coincidences in the world around me.
If we are open and look with clarity, we will see the intended messages from the universe. We marvel at how the same quote comes across our news feed time and time again, the same image continually finds its way to us, the same situation or person keeps coming our way… we are surprised by the frequency and sometimes intensity of these seemingly chance occurrences.
Yet we want to see all these signs. We want to know and feel that there is something greater at work, that something has our best interest at heart, and instructs us as our own divine sense of guidance and intuition makes itself clear.
It is no wonder that as I was feeling burnt out and wondering what exactly is my true purpose, that on the cliff staring me in the face on my beach walk was a mermaid. There she was… lying in the clay of the cliff as if she were in the water. Her hair flowing down her back, her fish tail clearly outlined in the sand… She was surely meant to be there as some sign for me, wasn’t she? And all of the sudden I had renewed energy for my creative work and my intuitive nature.
Synchronicity is nothing more than your openness to the messages of the universe and finally seeing how it all really does happen for you.
In an instant, it all becomes crystal clear. A dream that you had, that you can’t quite figure out what it means and what its message is to you, all at once resonates. A phone call or note at a specific time sheds light on something that has been troubling you. A walk in nature reveals something beautiful and meaningful, reinforcing your sense of self and purpose.
The signs, messages, synchronicities, coincidences, surprises, miracles, and wonders of life are everywhere. Receive them with an open mind, body, and heart.
