My guest for Life on Purpose Episode #93 is Sky Nelson-Isaacs. Sky is a physics educator, speaker, author, and musician who has dedicated his life to finding his own sense of purpose, bringing together the connection between synchronicity, physics, and real life using research and his original ideas.
I’m a big fan of Sky’s work — which shows how cultivating FLOW can empower us individually and help make our world a better place — and earlier this year took his Living In Flow course, which was great!
Sky joined me for a deep-dive conversation in which we discussed:
- His book Living in Flow: The Science of Synchronicity and How Your Choices Shape Your World;
- The responsiveness of the Universe;
- How he believes synchronicities give us the opportunity to heal;
- How is my life reflecting my choices and collectively how are our lives reflecting our choices?
- Connecting the dots looking backwards AND forward and how desire plays a part in that;
- Authentic power;
- Tools he’s created to help us cultivate flow, like the LORRAX process;
- His upcoming book Leap to Wholeness;
- Grief and connection;
- His new album Stand For Me featuring 13-original songs; and
- Much more!
“When we live in ‘flow,’ a state of activity in which we align with our purpose and values, balancing our personal good with the greater good, we make choices that invite synchronicity,” says Nelson-Isaacs.
About Sky Nelson-Isaacs:
Sky Nelson-Isaacs is a physics educator, speaker, author, and musician. He has a masters degree in physics from San Francisco State University, with a thesis in String Theory, and a BS in physics from UC Berkeley.
Nelson-Isaacs has dedicated his life to finding his own sense of purpose, beginning as a student of the Yogic master Sri Swami Satchidananda when he was less than five years old.
His writing on topics like flow comes from integrating this experience into his life. He brings together the connection between synchronicity, physics, and real life using research and original ideas.
As an active researcher in quantum foundations, his research is supported through grant funding from a private foundation. An educator with nine years of classroom experience, with experience in industry as a software engineer, Nelson-Isaacs is also a multi-instrumentalist and professional performer of award-winning original musical compositions.

About Living in Flow:
Synchronicity or meaningful coincidence has been something philosophers and scientists have wondered about for decades. Most of us have experienced it at least once.
You are on a much anticipated road trip and your vehicle breaks down. As you’re waiting by the side of the road a mechanic who specializes in just that type of car drives up and lends a hand.
Is this just chance? Can two events be related in a meaningful way without one causing the other?
If so, what does this tell us about the cosmos? Can we live in such a way and make choices that encourage synchronicity? Is that something we should strive for?
In LIVING IN FLOW: THE SCIENCE OF SYNCHRONICITY AND HOW YOUR CHOICES SHAPE YOUR WORLD (North Atlantic Books, March 2019, paperback) physicist Sky Nelson-Isaacs turns to quantum mechanics to seek answers.
Adhering to what we know from science, while offering a provocative new hypothesis, Nelson-Isaacs proposes that the cosmos may be designed to bring us meaningful, synchronistic experiences in response to the choices we make.
When we live in “flow,” a state of activity in which we align with our purpose and values, balancing our personal good with the greater good, we make choices that invite synchronicity.
In addition to a layperson’s explanation of the possible physics behind synchronicity, Nelson-Isaacs shows how cultivating flow can empower us individually and help make our world a better place.
