What am I rambling about? Messages and Signs...Same thing, right?
Hi! My last two blogs were about signs and messages. Since those blogs a couple of good friends have pointed something out to me. "Messages, signs, are the same they said. It's all a communication to you, so hence a message."
Ok, duh. But to be honest, I have never truly thought about putting these beliefs into words. And obviously this is all very new to me... because, you know, you read!
So I am going to try to clarify, and would love any feedback you are willing to give, as long as it's not hate. Cause again, you know, that kinda sucks!
So here goes: A sign is an answer or a direct statement to let you know in no uncertain terms that, yes, I am talking to you and here is what I am telling you.
So in other words, the outcome will be this, or the answer you are looking for is this.. It's strong and it if you trust it, it's a pure answer.
A message, is more a lesson. So I think I should call it "Divine Teaching". You need to figure out what it means to assist you in your growth. Because the process of figuring out the message will show you different aspects of a situation, so you will grow spiritually. It's always about spiritual growth. If you practice mindfulness, you will notice it more, too!
Does this make sense?
You know, I just believe this stuff for myself, and I am sharing because I have found great peace in my life because of my beliefs! And I also think the reason I wanted to share it, is because sometimes, signs and messages are so obvious, and people ignore them. It makes me nuts!
"They complain about being stuck. And I see a moment that without a doubt, is a moment when there is definitely a divine intervention. And I want to scream, do you realize what that was? But I have to accept that coming from me, it won't work. They won't listen. For a multitude of reasons. So I just kinda sigh and let it go! "
Sometimes, you may not like the message. It may seem critical. Never mean, always with a loving intent, but you know, sometimes we all need to learn something about ourselves that isn't pleasant. And we tend to fight that!
My humble advice to anyone that does experience a not so pleasing "ah ha moment", is to remember that Spirit, Holy Spirit, God, Goddess, whatever your belief, that guidance is always sending love.
"Like a good parent gently reprimands a child. The overall outcome is always positive. "Do no harm" comes to mind. Something I try to live by!"
So embrace the Spirit in you. It is real. You are special. And if you aren't sure, go to a space that brings you peace. Light a scented candle, (keep it a pure wax), place your favorite crystals around you, or an angel figurine, Spirit Animal representation, anything that helps you connect. Your personal ritual. Even church, if that's your thing. It's all good.
Once you are in your space, meditate, think about what you think you learned. It will come to you. Or ask for a teaching moment or sign. If you ask, you will get an answer. I may not be immediate, but it will come!
The next blog is going to be about ritual. It just popped into my mind so yay! Because ritual is important. It helps you focus, come to peace with your Soul Lessons. Even your cup of coffee is a cleansing ritual, did you know that? So be a little mindful of that, when you take your first sip!
