Waking up everyday is an opportunity to communicate with Spirit, and to connect with your higher self. As a spiritual being you are linked into the pulse of the Universe, it moves through you, and all around you. This affirms that you are in constant contact with Spirit, sending and receiving signs, messages and intentions.
As you move through life more aware of this dialogue, a type of awakening happens, you come closer to your center, and as some like to say, your authentic self. Spirit will prompt you in ways that move you closer to, or further from people and situations depending on how they will affect your well-being, and your personal growth. This is a powerful catalyst for change.
Reestablishing this communication with Spirit is simple, rather than learning something, you are remembering something. This is a natural experiences that is a the foundation of who you are, and what you’re made of.
First Things First
Establish your place as an observer. Each moment of each day, be open, and aware of what is happening around you. Explore, and observe what seems to be unfolding. This is a matter of noticing what stands out, pulling at the thread, and seeing where it takes you.
Some people will cry coincidence in most cases, but we must remember that Spirit works as a type of law, like gravity, moving, shaping and organizing everything in a seamlessly exquisite orchestra. There are no coincidences, or accidents. Each event, good or bad is part of a very deliberate cycle.
Your Universal Rhythm
I tend to avoid the notion that every thing is cause and effect because it can feel really scary, and restricting for people. But if you look at the world is one event prompting the other, you will begin to see a beautiful rhythm pulsing through everything.
This rhythm is detectable. When you look at things closely you will see signs, dots that can be traced and connected. From there you find meaning. We call these signs and symbols oracles. Oracles are everywhere. I like to use the world oracles, rather than omens because it doesn’t come across as sinister. But they are the same thing.
It comes down to the simple truth that Spirit uses the world around us to communicate. Paying attention moment to moment will bestow upon you wonderful insight into the dance of the Universe. You will see invisible threads connecting everything together. And you will be moved in a way to fulfill your highest good!
4 Ways Spirit Is Communicating With You:
These four ways of communication follow our natural senses, and can manifest in a variety of ways. Each person is unique, and will gravitate toward a particular channel of communication. Some people experience more than one way of communicating, either separately, or at the same time.
Spirit establishes a language to communicate with you personally. This is actually the heart of divination, and oracles. When you use a tool for divination, such as tealeaf reading, you are establishing a way for Spirit to communicative with you, and you are giving spirit a specific medium to give you messages.
As I said before, this is the heart of divination. Ancient people saw signs, and patterns in nature, they paid attention to them, recording their sightings, and pulling at the threads for meaning. Over time they created their own system, portable oracles, as a way to directly connect with spirit. Born from this idea are all forms of divination!
Whether you are using a tool for communicating with Spirit, or paying attention to what is naturally occurring, the process is the same. You are paying attention to what stands out to you. Anything that catches your attention has significance. Something in you was prompted to hear, feel, see or even know that bit of information.
Common Ways People Experience Messages
Goosebumps are the body’s natural response to intense, and foreign energy. When you get goosebumps this is an “aha” moment, and serves as a warning or a “hit” that you are on to something. Always pay attention to this. When you receive a message that triggers a physical response it is very powerful, and hard to deny!
Dreams also create a wonderful canvas for messages, and communication to occur. We work through many types of dreams. Some are more problem solving dreams, others are purging dreams where we are releasing the junk we’ve accumulated throughout the day, and then there are prophetic dreams.
Prophetic dreams are those dreams that foretell of something, or dreams that give us a deeper insight into the nature of a situation. These types of dreams tend to have a distinct tone. When I have a prophetic dream it feels as though I am having déjà vu, as if I am there, participating, yet I am only observing.
Hearing Your Name
Hearing your name being called when no one is there is an experience that everyone has at one point or another. It’s something that a lot of people stay quiet about for fear that they will be ridiculed, but if you dig deeper you will find this is very common. It has been observed in many cultures, some see it as a negative sign, and others see it as a positive.
My personal experience with hearing my name being called is often that I need to pay attention. Pay attention for something that is happening around me, or something that will happen. Sometimes hearing my name being called is a reminder to me that a bigger message is about to come through and I need to tap into the moment.
Going to the right places at the right time happens all the time, without any explanation. For most people it is a matter of losing time, or focus, and then ending up somewhere unintended. This can be taking a wrong turn, or changing plans on a whim. When you find yourself in the perfect situation without knowing why, pat yourself on the back because you have just ridden the wave of Spirit!
The Rule of 3
In my experience I’ve found what I call the, Rule of 3. The Rule of 3 is the occurrence of something distinct at least three times. When this happens I know that there is something to be learned. I begin to pay closer attention, and explore whatever else is happening around me.
Try recording your experiences in a journal. Record anything peculiar that happens throughout your day, or any “coincidences” you may have. Recording your experiences, especially things that stand out at least three times, will help you connect the dots for meaning in everyday occurrences. This will give you clues into Spirit’s most dominant form of personal communication.
Message from Spirit can be put into three categories:
This is a simple way of understanding the tone of your message. As you connect the dots, and make note of whatever you’re experiencing you will find that each message affords you a certain type of insight.
Opportunities are messages that push, or pull you into a certain situation that ultimately brings you closer to a big break or the opportunity to do something amazing. Spirit works in big, and small ways, so never down play the significance of an opportunity. You may find a message leads you to the right career path, or maybe just a good cup of coffee!
Warnings tend to be just that, messages that warn against some type of choice or action. I find that warnings are a little louder, and more dramatic than the other messages. This reaffirms that Spirit has our best interest in mind. Always pay attention when things stand out. These messages can lead you away from physical danger, heartache, or just general disappointment.
Confirmation messages are those messages that validate something for you. This validation could lead you to an opportunity, or a warning, but generally speaking confirmation messages are just moments when you feel like someone “gets you”.
I see confirmation messages very often when I am reading for a client. You’ve probably experienced this yourself… something comes through in the reading that just confirms everything you were feeling!
Personally, Spirit tends to give me warnings in the form of premonitions. When something majorly bad is going to happen I am usually met with a vision, either in waking life, or dream state. Messages of opportunity usually come to me in the form of feelings. Something prompts me to take an action that leads me to a powerful discovery!
Finding Your Rhythm
It bears repeating that Spirit, The Universe follows a certain rhythm. I guess it could be said that there are many beats, and layers making up this overall rhythm. When you find your feet, and learn to move with the pulse of the Universe, you will ride this wave of discovery.
Taking time daily to ground, and center will help you notice the Universal rhythm. Grounding and centering will slough off negative, and stray accumulated throughout daily life. Once you are in alignment you are at an ample state to receive messages from Spirit!
Meditation and prayer are your way of linking into, and actually moving to the beat of Spirit! This is the act of observing, and participating. When you create time for meditation and prayer, you are acknowledging your spiritual nature, shifting from the left-brain, and moving into the right-brain. Your right-brain is where you intuition, imagination and creativity originate.
Don’t forget, you can ask Spirit for an answer. In daily life if you are confused or stuck, send a request into the Universe for some type of answer or validation. This can be a silent prayer, a spoken request, or even a written letter placed under your pillow. Send then intention into the either, and allow Spirit to respond however seems fit!
