The Baal Shem Tov, or Besht —  the founder of Chasidism — 
met the soul of the Messiah during an ascent to heaven. 
The Besht asked him, "When will the Master come?" 
The Messiah answered, "When your wellsprings break forth to the outside!" 
(from a letter written by the Besht to his brother-in-law about one of his soul ascents)

Yedid Nefesh

Most siddurim include Yedid Nefesh, but if yours doesn't, you can open and print this one page .pdf based on Siddur Chaverim Kol Yisrael. You can also listen to Emilia Cataldo's lovely two-part harmony of the well-known waltz tune for Yedid Nefesh here.
