I have been doing a lot of reading lately about the difference between a message from spirit and a thought. It became really clear to me this morning. When I get a message from spirit, it’s got a feeling attached to it instantly. When you are aligned with your soul, these can happen instantly.
Here’s an example. Last night I saw a rainbow out the window as I was painting. I took a picture because I thought it was pretty. At bedtime, it occurred to me that the last time I saw a rainbow was the day my sister and I took our trip to get the last of the things from her apartment. I instantly knew that rainbow was a message from my mom.
This morning I was speaking to a friend about the significance of rainbows. Not ten minutes after this conversation, I was listening to the radio and the Fleetwood Mac song, Seven Wonders, came on and in the chorus there’s a line about following the path to the rainbow’s edge. I felt warm and loved, and I knew that it was confirmation that indeed the rainbow was sent by mom.
Side note: My guides know that they can send me messages in song, so I get a lot of messages that way, but there are so many ways they send messages.
As I always tell people that want to connect with their loved ones. The more you are open to the messages, the more you will receive. Spirits figure out what works and keep doing it.
Everyday, I feel more in awe of the magic of the universe, God, and our planet.
