I need new spirit guidance to come to me from many different sources before I’ll go with it. I prefer to have strong confirmation that I’m on the right track!

Synchronicity, signs, symbols, numbers, patterns and information are all ways for spirit guides to communicate with us in our world. Synchronicity is a great way to describe these occurrences. Synchronicity was first explained as a concept by psychiatrist Carl Jung, as early as the 1920’s. Jung maintained that events are “meaningful coincidences” if they occur with no causal relationship, yet seem to be meaningfully related.

I believe there’s no such thing as coincidence or chance. So when a coincidence occurs in my life I know it’s really synchronicity. I know there’s more going on than meets the eye so I pay attention and observe to try to understand what my Spirit Guides are trying to tell me.

Synchronicity occurs when your inner and outer worlds align. I believe everything is interconnected; we live in a web of life that creates ease and flow for all those living in oneness. Everything is energy.

When you experience synchronicity in your life it is validation and confirmation you are on the right path. Everything feels like it’s unfolding without conscious effort on your part. You may feel like you’re held in the hand of universe/Source/God who is actively assisting you.

Synchronicity in my Life

When I met my future husband, I knew. It had not felt significant – I was on my way home to New Zealand to a new life. I wasn’t looking for a Tasmanian! I knew something was going on when where ever my girlfriend and I went, there was this guy coming in the opposite direction. We’re strolling around the point, he’s walking towards us. We’re going into the movies, he’s coming out.

The Universe was compelling and determined for us to meet and get to know each other. I had no choice but to respond to the call.

It became ridiculous and an obvious nudge from the universe so I invited him for dinner. We had spent a few days together in the Byron Bay area, enjoying a swim at Protester Falls and a game of pool at the Great Northern Hotel.

We exchanged email addresses and corresponded for a year until I moved to Melbourne, Australia. Within 4 days we knew this was it. I just knew. He felt so familiar. Being with him was like putting on a much-loved jumper that was missed. I remember describing the feeling as if I was on a train that was rushing full tilt towards a destination. I had absolutely no control. All I could do was sit down, get comfortable and strap myself in for the ride!

I moved in with him in Tasmania 2 months later and we were married a year later in 2001. Unbeknownst to me, his family took one look at the photos he had taken way back when we first met – on the trip to Protester Falls – and predicted: “You’ll marry that girl”!! So basically, his family knew years before I did!

Spirit Guides love to be creative

Your Spirit Guides will use creative and imaginative ways to contact you, to give you nudges in the right direction and give you confirmation when you’re on the right track.

Your Spirit Guides want to speak volumes and so they tend to use methods that push you beyond the surface meaning. They love to surprise with imaginative signs and symbols that make us pause and consider in order to unravel the full meaning.

Your Spirit Guides will only teach one step at a time. We receive this information in the form of repetitive thoughts, feelings, visions or words, depending upon your spiritual orientation.

Sometimes spirit guidance is subtle and easily missed if you aren’t paying attention but when it really matters, it’s repetitive and obvious – they don’t want you to miss it! Your Spirit Guides have your highest and best good in kind so if it’s important they will not rest until you have understood the message.

I’ve been known to stop in my tracks to witness birds flying in formation overhead over and over again, the same information coming to me through different sources: radio, TV and snippets of other people’s conversations!! It’s all meaningful and insightful within the context of what’s going on for you at the time.

Learn to see your life in broad strokes with a level of detachment so you can read your life as symbols without labeling experiences. Seeing in symbols without attaching or labeling an emotional response or judgement (that was bad, that was good) enables you to reclaim your energy with aspects of yourself buried beneath layers of judgment and criticism. This leads to emotional, spiritual and physical healing. This allows you to redefine your expectations, dropping control over your future and surrendering to the adventure that is life!
