Messages from Spirit

Happy Birthday Otto

Our guardian angels, guides, loved ones, or whatever you chose call them send us messages all the time (especially when we ask for them).

Yesterday during meditation I asked my guides if the were able to give me a sign when I am not being true to myself, as sometimes I don’t even know when I’m doing it. It’s second nature to me to put others first or have flexible boundaries etc.

They said yes of course and told me how they would let me know. It was actually the word Clover that I heard. I thought, okay that’s weird, but I looked up the meaning and it’s not always luck as you’d expect.

Fast forward a day…I had a doctors appointment this afternoon. When I visit this particular doctor I like to check out the bookstore that is nearby. I had actually talked myself out of it and was in the turn lane to go home and I made a last minute choice to go.

I didn’t find anything at the bookstore, but I figured since the pet store was a few doors down that I would pop over and get my dog Otto a special birthday cookie. He turns 5 today!

When I walked down the dog treat aisle I was struck square in the face by a display of dog treats in the shape of a clover!!! It was even the brands name. I was awestruck!

I hear you!!! I’m truly grateful too!!! Keep the messages coming. You can get messages too. Ask and believe!

Listen

I take my dogs out first thing when I wake up in the morning. The weather was really chilly and I wanted to make this a really quick trip. There’s two routes that I normally go with them, this time I went the short one that doesn’t have anything to look at but a road and a strip mall. As I was standing there waiting on my plot hound to do his business with my teeth chattering I was being urged to walk toward the pond.

Now let me tell you this was the last thing I wanted to do. First it would add time to the walk and I was already frozen and not dressed for more cold. Second, that means open spaces for wind tow come and whip my face and hands. I debated for a moment and then thought to myself. There must be something that God wants me to see.

Sure enough, maybe a dozen steps past where I would have normally turned around I saw this…

This beauty was sitting right in between two pine trees in a long row. The colors were amazing, the picture was taken on my phone and doesn’t do it justice.

Listen to the whispers urging you to take a left instead of a right or take just a few more steps. When you have a feeling that you should phone a friend you haven’t spoken with in a long time. That moment when you turn the radio on and it reminds you of someone.

I have stopped considering these things coincidences. These are messages from God/Universe, or whatever higher power you subscribe to. When we listen to these messages our lives become richer and more abundant. When we trust this guidance, we are tapping into the essence of our creator. It lives in all of us. Whether spiritual or not, it’s here for us as long as we believe.

Coincidence or Synchronicity?

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.
