Synchronicities, spirit guides, and the universe.

And when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you achieve it.

Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

Over the past two months, I’ve experienced things that have left me speechless. I’ve always felt like I’ve had a sixth sense. Often I am very sensitive and receptive of the unknown, but I’m constantly in denial. 

After the experiences I’m about to describe, I can no longer ignore or deny that a greater power is at work. There are signs everywhere the universe is speaking to me, and I’m finally ready to listen. 

When deciding to move abroad, I had many goals in mind. The most important one was getting right with myself. In doing so, I picked up several books that I wanted to read. I had those books on my desk snd kept telling myself I’ll start on it tomorrow, but tomorrow never came.

In January, I picked up a book written by a friend of mine titled “when the universe speaks.” After reading the foreword and first couple of pages, I was hooked. I can’t remember what happened, but I had to put the book down, and since then, I never picked it back up until I moved. 

When I purchased the book, I purchased a bundle. It included vegan hot cocoa, a chakra realignment session, and the book. Coincidentally, my friend and author of the book reached out to schedule the chakra rebalancing session. I had intended to book it before moving but did not plan accordingly. 

What was interesting about her timing was I was halfway through her book. I was experiencing a lot of synchronicities, and I had different people pushing me and pulling me in the same direction. 

This is my second time having my chakras rebalanced, but my first time doing so virtually. When I joined the zoom call, just hearing Nina’s voice and being in her presence put me at ease. 

I began explaining to her all the weird things that were happening. I was having lucid dreams and kept waking at odd hours between 1-4am. On tik tok I kept receiving tarot readings that were scarily accurate to what was happening in my life. Last but not least, I kept seeing Angel numbers and felt this intense energy around me that was just unexplainable. 

As we began our session, we could not believe this was the longest distance ever for a session. Excited and nervous, I began to meditate and relax. As Nina worked off-screen, I let my mind wander as I heard the sound baths. At certain intervals, I could also see colors vividly. This occurs when people are in tune with their mind, body, and spirit and have a strong third eye.

I kept seeing waves of green, I saw Waves of violet with hints of indigo, and toward the end, I saw an orange and yellow flame. Before I knew it, the realignment was complete, and Nina came back on. She mentioned that my heart chakra was blocked (hence why I saw green). Then she explained my crown chakra and throat chakra were out of balance (the purple and indigo). Last but not least, she mentioned my sacral was also blocked when we started discussing this; Nina said that she envisioned a candle as she cleansed that area, and I got chills. I had seen the flame. 

Later we began discussing other synchronicities. One of them is that whenever I visited my dad’s grave, I always encountered white butterflies. It had been more than one occasion that one landed on my hand. 

The last time I visited I wore green pants and a black top. We drove by a village, and my sister and I spotted some cool chairs and took some pictures. Later that night, I came across a video that I will link below. I cried. I could not believe the timing of everything. 

I messaged Nina, and she has been the very best at hearing me and encouraging me to listen and be unafraid of the universe and its plans for me. 

When the universe speaks- listen. 

A little back story Bruce came into my life last year. My job had him reach out for mental health reasons. I was going through a traumatic experience and loss. Granted, I did not want to talk to this man because I’ve never needed to talk to anyone. I just go through what I go through and keep it moving. When he began to speak, I felt like I knew him. I was no longer on guard but very receptive. There was a connectedness that I could not explain. Instead of focusing on me and my pain, he led the conversation gracefully. He avoided asking, “how do you feel?” instead explained how my feelings were valid and he too had suffered significant losses. He gave me a message that resonated so much, and I decided to keep in touch.

Fast forward to this week- I had a rough day at work and had just wrapped up my workday when I get a call. I put down the knife and stopped chopping- it was Bruce. 

Back to the present day- The last time Bruce and I spoke was on New Years’. This time He called a week after my birthday and just wanted to see how I was doing. Let me tell you, I believe God or the universe used this man as an Angel or messenger because his timing is always Devine. 

He called me and said he heard a “great shift in my voice.” I told him I had moved, and the first thing he said was, “I know deep in my heart being closer to home, and your ancestors will help give you more clarity and help you find your life’s purpose.” The crazy thing about his statement was Nina and my cousin had also said this in the previous months. 

He began to tell me about organizations I should look at, and when he described them, I was in shock because I had recently applied to a program exactly like the one he was describing. Then he mentioned an organization by name, and I realized a month prior I had applied to it on my own. 

This Interaction was extremely cathartic, and I cannot even express how I know it was Devine intervention. Something overcame me, and I asked him to do something I have NEVER asked anyone to do for me before. I asked him to pray for me and he did. I had chills and broke down in a way I cannot explain. Towards the end, he asked me if I had someone in my life, and I was taken aback. Truthfully I don’t have anyone, but there’s always that one person who comes to mind when you’re asked about a special someone. 

Then he said, “I want to tell you what I would tell my kids… don’t settle. You are a beacon in light, and you should not let anyone dull your light. What is for you will always be for you. Trust and believe that God will help you find someone who will appreciate you and let you shine without holding you back.” 

I was speechless. I NEEDED to hear that. Mind you, I have never met Bruce in person. For him to just know this and say these things was almost like God telling me, “since you want to miss all the signs you ask for, here is an explicit sign you can choose to ignore- or not.”

These past couple of months have been so damn emotional, but I know in my heart I am where I need to be. I know my angels are watching over me and pushing me in the path I am destined to embark on. I have become more receptive to the messages being sent my way, and now I can say thank you, Nina, Bruce, and Chalo. 

When the universe speaks- listen.
