The Science of Synchronicity and Living in Flow

In this episode, Sky Nelson-Isaacs discusses living in flow and how your choices shape your world. Sky is a physicist, educator, speaker, musician, and author. Sky wrote the book Living in Flow: The Science of Synchronicity and How Your Choices Change Your World. First Sky talks about his work, bringing together synchronicity, physics, and real-life. To do this, Sky relies on research and original ideas. Next, Sky uses real life examples to show how your choices shape your world. In summary, listen and learn how you can start living in flow instead of just going with the flow. 

Episode Highlights: 

  • First, Emily Harman introduces Sky Nelson-Isaacs.
  • Then Sky talks about the meaning behind his book Living in Flow: The Science of Synchronicity and How Your Choices Shape Your World. 
  • Next Sky explains how physics relates to synchronicity.
  • Why do more ‘meaningful’ outcomes take place in our lives? 
  • Later on, Emily shares her retirement story.
  • Next, Sky analyzes Emily’s retirement story. 
  • What does ‘living in flow’ mean to Sky?
  • Flow is about letting go of worry and getting in sync with life.
  • Sky discusses the L-O-R-R-A-X process (Listen, Open, Reflect, Release, Act, Repeat).
  • First listen.
  • Then open up your mind.
  • After that, reflect.
  • Then Sky tells us how to release and act.
  • Finally, the last step in the process is to repeat.
  • Intuitions are assisted by life and adversities are assisting our intuitions.  
  • Towards the end, Sky shares a mind exercise to recharge our mental data. 
  • How do your choices shape your world?
  • How can living in flow help organizations function better? 
  • When we see that life is on our side, we can become more effective. 
  • How does his work of synchronicity link to Sky’s social justice community work? 
  • In summary, you can learn how to live in flow instead of going with the flow.

3 Key Points about the Living in Flow:

First: Synchronicity is when certain events show up which are meaningful and if we pay attention and follow them effectively, they lead us to situations that we wouldn’t have expected.

Second: Sky describes a scientifically based method of understanding and using life experience—the obstacles and synchronicities that show up in daily life—as a reliable guide for knowing how to move forward in areas where you are stuck.

Third: The L-O-R-R-A-X process involves: listening to life, opening our minds, reflecting on the situations which are happening, releasing our attachment to how we thought things were supposed to be, then acting on our instincts. 

Tweetable Quotes:

1. “I started trying to understand synchronicity through the lens of physics, which is my training, and in the past 12 years or so I have developed some academic theories on how that works.” – Sky Nelson-Isaacs

2. “Quantum mechanics is the study of what the world is doing when we are not watching.” – Sky Nelson-Isaacs

3. “The idea here from quantum mechanics is that when we interact with the world outside of us, we collapse it in some sense, into a definite state. But until that point, it was just a collection of possibilities.” – Sky Nelson-Isaacs
