Psychics do not have a monopoly on insight. There are many signs that we can read to make sense of any life situation at any moment. Signs are everywhere. The Divine delights in sending us messages 24 hours a day. The Divine is earnest and responsive to your concerns.
The unfolding of each day holds meaning and significance. Each day is a personal movie before your eyes, yet you may not know how to find the meaning or the answer to your question. Remember those childhood pictures where the challenge is to find twenty-eight hidden objects? Listen and watch for those keys and you will find an answer.
You must train your heart as well as your eyes. You must recognize that there are little miracles popping up in your day, special messages to be opened. Opening the heart opens your eyes to these messages from the Divine. The magic will return to your life as you begin to recognize that you are in constant dialogue with the Divine Intelligence.
Our dream world is filled with metaphor. Few of us recognize that daily events are also imbued with meaning. The following are signs to look for during the day that you can draw insight from. Every activity in life is a living metaphor containing guidance and insight that is available to you right now. The next time you need guidance, call on the flow of your daily life for answers. The more the Divine knows you're paying attention, the more these letters to your soul will start appearing in your daily life.
1. Highways And Byways
Pay attention to what you see while you are driving. What you find in the road may be an indication of what's in your life's path. You might see a pillow in the road which can mean you need more rest. A dead deer on the side of the road might say that you are neglecting your inner power that comes from gentleness. Also, accidents usually are way of telling you to slow your life down. Pay more attention to the road.
Walking down the sidewalk is an excellent way to receive messages. Suppose you are feeling alone with no one to talk to about the ups and downs in your relationship. If you just had someone to talk to, all might seem better. While walking through the park, you find a single blue glove on a grassy slope. You return home to find a phone message that a friend has called to say "just wondering how you are." Gloves are often a sign that help is coming, a helping hand.
2. Overhearing A Conversation
What you hear in a particular conversation can be a divine broadcast meant for you. Let's say you want to change jobs soon, but you are uncertain about such a drastic change. You are sitting in a local coffee shop reading the local newspaper and you hear two men talking about their work frustrations. One says he's had it. He's going to open up his own business, finally, after dreaming about it for sixteen years. You can hear the excitement, enthusiasm, and determination in his voice. The Divine is fanning the fires of your own enthusiasm.
Events that we witness also give us a preview of what's coming around the corner. You are riding your bike home and you see two women on the corner yelling at each other. You hear from your college-aged sister that evening. She sounds upset because a girlfriend of hers is dating her ex-boyfriend.
3. Déjà Vu
There are some people we meet where there is an immediate connection, the groundwork has already been done. You talk like you've known each other for eons (and you probably have).
Also, when you see someone who reminds you of someone else, even if there are some distinct physical differences, it is significant. This could mean you are thinking of each other, you can feel it, even if you are in California and he is in Massachusetts. Distance is not a factor. Thought knows no distance.
Parallel events are another way to experience this. You have an old friend in St. Louis who said she was thinking about moving back to your area. You are making a turn back to your house and you see a moving truck backing into a driveway. The woman who steps out of the truck looks just like her. As you get closer, you realize it's not her. That night (surprise!) she calls giving you her new local phone number and address.
4. Songs In Your Head
Ever wake up with a tune playing in your head? Let's say it's "Amazing Grace." You wonder why it's playing over and over in your head. Then, you hear it on the radio, twice, and two different renditions. You are sweating over finances, the rent is due in several weeks. You don't have the whole amount and you don't know how you'll come up with it either. Carpentry jobs are at a lull, it's at the end of the season and winter is approaching. You've been lucky to bring in even part-time income. In the mail, you receive a notice from an old boss, that he's directing a building project and is recruiting quality carpenters for the job. Amazing grace, indeed.
5. Animals Are Teachers Too
Watch animals and you'll know you have a divine teacher near you to learn from. Ever spend an afternoon with cats and watch them play with yarn? Can you play like that? How much joy is there in playing fetch? A lot.
If an owl appears in your backyard (like one did in my backyard), take notice. A wise visionary teacher has just appeared. (See Dreams, Signs and Symbols in the June/July edition.)
And squirrels aren't silly gatherers either. Learn how to save up for winter from the squirrels while still finding time for a game of chase among the branches.
6. What's The Condition Of Your Inner House?
Did your bathroom just flood? Water refers to your emotional state. Check in on your emotions. You may be on emotional overload. Time to rebalance.
Cracks in your roof. Maybe it's time to repair the roof and look at some of your attitudes in your mental roof. Does your frame-of-mind work for you or against you?
Junk in your backyard. How long has it been since you've reviewed your family history or done a personal evaluation? Is it time to examine and throw out what's unused and overused in your personal life?
7. Out Of The Blue
These are signs that seem especially out of place. These events have no rational reason for occurring, but they happen just the same. They have a true signature of a Universal message because they stick out in some way.
You receive a letter addressed to you at your current address. But you don't know the senders at all. They are traveling around Europe and want you to send them your new address since they are under the impression you are moving. Six weeks later you find yourself moving to a new location.
You retrieve your voicemail messages like you always do. One of your messages is a recording of a conversation between two people. You don't know them. You don't understand how your phone could have recorded this message, but it is about money owed. Come to think of it, a friend of yours does owe you some money. You've wondered if your friend would be able to pay you. In the conversation on your voicemail, money is exchanged, paid up with interest. You later receive notice that the person who owes you money will be able to pay you after all.
You are trying to decide whether or not to take a certain job. It might not be as secure because it's by contract and you're used to a steady paycheck. You're driving and you spot a bumper sticker saying "Wrong way Safeway." The conflict over whether Safeway should be able to build a store in the neighborhood has found expression in a bumper sticker. So too has a personal message from the Divine: The safe way is the wrong way.
These are only a few keys to look for when you need guidance or a preview of the near future. They are free, but they do require your attention. There are many forms of insight. Start practicing paying attention to some of these. See what fits. And ask for more signs.
