A Woman with Soul: Diana Brunson
Hi. My name is Diana Brunson. I have two blogs. One is Spiritually Speaking. I mostly write about synchronicity, which includes numerology. It is about my spirittual journey, but it is also to help others understand synchroncity better from another perspective. There are many. While it’s wise to look within yourself, sometimes it can help to see things from another point of view. My other blog is about the arts. It includes synchronicity as well. I think a better way to to describe it would be cosmic arts. Please take a look. I think it’ll help explain what I mean: Diana’s Divine Diversity.
I hope that you feel the energy of love that I poured into this.
Describe one of the most soul-opening moments of your life.
One of the most soul-opening moments of my life, and a deep soul connection, was sometime after listening to Jason Mraz’s song I’m Yours. When I first heard it, I immediately liked it. I thought of it as a happy hippy song. And that was before I knew all the lyrics.
I think it was about a week or two later when I’m Yours became more than what I ever expected. Jason sings the words “divine intervention”, which I didn’t realize until much later. This was divine intervention preparing me for what was to come next.
Jason hums a little in this song. It was the frequency of that hum which touched my soul so deeply, that it caused the floodgates to be completely broken open. My soul felt the vibrations of his voice. Tears flowed every time I heard it. Heart-wrenching cries that happened no matter what mood I was in came bursting out.
I could have stopped listening to the song. But I didn’t want to. I wanted to hear the happy parts. I also had a deep desire to hear him hum. Not so I could cry again. But because I knew the longing of my soul was to feel the vibrations that matched her own at the time. This lasted maybe two or three weeks.
I was completely flabbergasted by these powerful emotions that were only felt when hearing that hum and yet I knew, intuitively that it was spiritual. I wrote about other experiences I had that pertained to this. It may help to understand better by reading it. Once in awhile, my soul lets go when I hear that sweet soulful sound that she connected with. And it’s still my happy hippy song.
Tell us about a deep soul connection that you’ve experienced.
I didn’t think it could get any deeper than that. Here is another divine intervention and the deepest soul connection yet. And who better to be the catalyst of such a spiritual event than someone who is considered a spiritual guru to so many? Many call him Master. Many others, including myself, call him Deepak, which, I wasn’t sure I should do at first. I’ve never met him, but he seems so down-to-earth!
I began noticing synchronicities in the 90s. Butterflies and the ocean is how this confusing, strange, soulful, beautiful, synchronistic journey began. The number 22 has been very significant throughout my synchronistic journey since 1997. I wrote several articles about it last year on my spiritual blog. I mention this because Deepak’s birthday is October 22. Experiencing synchronicities with someone who teaches about synchronicity is so amazing. Having that someone be the one and only Deepak Chopra, mind-blowing.
I didn’t know who Deepak Chopra in the 90s. I saw a few quotes of his on the internet. Perhaps one or two were about synchronicity. Blogging didn’t even exist yet and I don’t believe he had a web presence at the time.
In the meantime, the synchronicities continued and I continued learning more of what they could mean. I believed I had a soul, but I didn’t think about myself as being a soul having a human experience. I did, however, connect synchronicities with the soul. I just didn’t understand the hows or whys of my experiences.
I felt like I was living in the Twilight Zone. It was driving me crazy, but I wanted it to continue because it also raised my vibrations and I was feeling closer to God.
Then four years ago I had a dream. Where the divine intervention occurred. That was a turning point in my life. I wasn’t consciously seeking spiritual answers or asking the question, “Who am I?” My life was far from perfect, but for the most part, I was happy and content.
I was already following him on Twitter, but I didn’t have much interest in Twitter. I was asked to sign up for work, which became unnecessary. Deepak wasn’t following me until I asked him a question about his latest book at that time. That was in 2010 and when the magic journey really began to take flight.
My first connection with him on Twitter occurred a year before. I had retweeted this quote by Rumi: “Let the waters settle, you will see stars & moon mirrored in your being.” His reply was so unexpected. “Just be with her.” As simple as that was, coming from Deepak Chopra left me speechless and highly emotional. I’m an emotional gal anyway, but this intensified it.
I love reading the reactions other people give when he tweets to them for the first time. Those that want him to connect with them get so excited it seems like they can hardly contain themselves. I laugh it tickles me so. My reaction was different. I didn’t respond directly to him. I just cried while sitting at my desk. I did a lot of crying during this journey. It was a soul-cleansing experience. Most of those tears were so full of pure love, though. Something I still don’t understand..
Thanks to Deepak, I began meditating, synchronicities increased and telepathy became a daily occurrence. Many of them with Deepak. Sometimes, all of the mystical, magical, mysterious phenomena of the universe still leaves me breathless.
Deepak has taught me a lot about consciousness, the soul, the universe, and another way of seeing synchronicities. Not everything he teaches resonates with me. But what does is what I will take with me and use for a higher purpose, if that’s what I’m called to do. I am so grateful.
Love. He tweets about it a lot. He writes about it. The best way for me to understand love is to experience it. A soul connection is a way for this to happen. This has only happened to me a few times. Because of Deepak, I know that when it comes from soul, I love, whether it’s recipricated or not. With or without romance, the soul loves.
Deepak is the closest one to God that I know. He is the reason I am closer to God than I have ever been in my life. To experience God, is to experience pure love from the soul.
When do you feel your most soulful?
I feel my most soulful when I am either talking to like-minded people or when I am alone and focused on writing about spirituality, the soul, and (mostly) synchronicity.
It is usually more intense being within the experience of a synchronicity when it is with someone I love or from the first moment that I feel a soul connection with someone, whether I know them or not. It’s more thrilling when the connection is felt by the both of us..
Who is one of the most soulful people you’ve ever known?
One of the most soulful people I know is my beautiful granddaughter, Kailyn. When she was three years old, I was talking to her on the phone. Or rather I was listening to her as she told me a story.
I didn’t understand her enough to know what she was talking about, but the tone in her voice told me of such passion, it was as though I was listening to someone who was stuck inside a little body aching to come out and speak, but couldn’t.
I am sure it was my granddaughter’s soul wanting to deeply share that story. The more she spoke, the more passionate she became and then suddenly, her emotions became so intense that she burst into tears. Kailyn is now four and her passionate soul is heard through the words she speaks. A beautiful, grownup soul in a little body. She is so amazing.
What qualities do you feel a soulful relationship has?
It’s been about 12 years since I’ve been in a romantic relationship. And none that I have had were soulful. Excluding synchronicity, I didn’t pay attention to my spiritual journey until the divine interventions. So, I didn’t make having a spiritual partner a necessary part of my life. Nor did I when I considered myself a Christian years before. I didn’t grow much as a Christian. There were too many questions and not enough answers. Now I consider myself “spiritual not religious”. I still have questions, but now I listen to my intuition a lot more often (sometimes I still falter in that area) and follow signs I receive from God through synchronicities.
This is what I would like to have: In soul relationships there should be the freedom to just be. To be who we are. To have trust in ourselves and in each other. To be vulnerable, open and honest with each other. To be comfortable in our skin and with each other enough while being together in silence. To be supportive of each other in good times and bad.
I don’t know about anyone else, but I think passion, laughter, playfulness and silliness are wonderful qualities to have in a soulful relationship. I don’t believe that soul wants us to live a humdrum life of boredom. Spontaneity can add spice to the relationship as well.
I believe that my soul purpose is to be doing whatever it is I am doing in the moment, with synchronicity at the heart of whatever it is. Right now that is blogging about journey. Synchronicity keeps me connected to my soul and therefore to God (or whatever word you choose). For whoever is open to it, synchronicity can show that we are all connected to everyone and to everything. And that ultimately, God is at the helm.
I don’t always live from soul. My ego does take control. That’s where the lessons are. I’d rather it not be that way, but I have a lot of learning to do. With each lesson I learn, I am aware that I am growing through each one and becoming more aware of who I am and of my soul’s purpose.
Is there anything else you’d like to share with us?
Thank you Mali and Joe for allowing me to share my story with you and your readers. Synchronicities are usually unexpected surprises while, for those who pay attention may expect to have them. For me it’s more about when and how they come that is the mystery. They can come in whispers or come with a big bang. It depends on the urgency of the message and whether the recipient has been paying attention. Our synchronicity was in the middle. And in Divine timing.
I am not a seeker of attention. I’m perfectly fine remaining in the background. Even as a blogger, I don’t expect to become well known. So, having these experiences with two famous people and to share my story for anyone in the world to read is uncharacteristic of me. Following synchronicities can change that. I am going with the flow, not knowing the outcome. Thank you for inspiring me to do so.
Deepak and Jason, I don’t know if you realize how deeply you both have affected my life. Thank you for reaching my soul with your words, your voice, your essence. My soul wanted my attention and wanted me to not just believe God exists, but to experience God. Anyone could have been the catalysts. But it was you. Look how the universe work it’s magic. How crazy beautiful it is that you two know each other. Soul Divine.
Diana, we appreciate you more than you know. Love, Mali & Joe
