Six Unconventional Ways to Find Guidance

Screen Shot 2013-07-08 at 3.31.22 PMThey say that if we can count our friends on one hand, we’re lucky. Having just one best bud who brings on the sunshine when the going gets tough can feel like a big enough blessing. Sure, we hope to have a handful of people to call on when we need to, but when it comes to our nearests and dearests, I find it’s really about quality over quantity.

But whether or not we have one sole BFF, a whole handful of them, or the Motley Crue at our side, there’s no denying that most of our days are spent without those partners in crime.  No matter who is in our life and how close we are with them, the 9-5 is often filled with clients, paperwork and no compadres to speak of.

Here are six ways to find guidance and inspiration when the Monday blues start kicking in and your trusted confidants are out of sight:

1. Touch the clock, it’s 11:11. Yes, just like you did when you were a kid. It’s said that when you see a clock at 11:11, it’s a sign that the angels are watching over you, or that they’re reminding you you’re a “lightworker.” Others believe it’s a sign of synchronicity, or that the angels are trying to get your attention so they can tell you something even bigger. I’m not kidding when I tell you that almost every day, I look up at the clock right at 11:11 (both AM and PM.) Now that you know this little trick, I bet you’ll see 11:11 a whole lot more often.

2. Turn up the radio. No, not to drown out the sounds of your boss still yacking in your head, though that’s a good idea too. A song can tell us just what we need to hear, right when we need to hear it. Try it next time you’re in the car or listening to Pandora at your desk. It works.

3. Meditate. Yeah, yeah, I know, there’s a reason why this isn’t at the top of my list – I’m not the biggest fan of getting quiet either. But I must say, even if I can’t hear guidance when I’ve quieted all of the other voices in my head, I still find a certain calm within myself that cannot be replaced when I meditate. That serenity can carry me through my day.

4. Open your eyes to what’s in front of you. How often have I needed a pep talk and not even known it? I’ll look ahead of me only to see some quote on the wall or Facebook status that says exactly what I need to hear. Guidance doesn’t have to come in the ways we expect it to: it’s often right in front of us if we’re willing to let go of our expectation of what it should look like.

5. Listen closely. Sure, your crazy co-worker who drives you up the wall isn’t exactly your guru, but they might have something to say that, when taken out of the context, is really valuable within the context of your life.

6. Look up. If all else fails, that’s often all it takes

The Power of Intention: How Miracles Happen

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KBbNAqtPcNU]

 

 

‘There is a light,

A certain kind of light,

That is shone on me”

 

Every passage of time has a song.

This has been it.

The song.

The song that got played a thousand times, as a thousand suns rose golden, and a thousand suns set pink and when a thousand stars flooded the night sky – and a thousand tears fell down my face as I myself fell deeper and deeper into knowing. I’ve been listening to it for nine months now. As we’ve been apart because of work or because of a time for more understanding.  In those aching moments of distance between us. Distance that has always in the end, brought us even closer together when it’s finally over. Distance that I so want to end forever now. Now that I finally get it.

This song might have been one of the ways in which I was given the miracle that I prayed so hard for; because there’s a line:

‘Wanted my whole life to be lived with you. Lived with You.’

It’s so simple. It said everything to me. Whenever I heard this one line, I would once again know our commitment to one another, and remember that to create a lifetime of togetherness you have to have infinite patience and unending understanding. I was discovering that somehow I am capable of more of either of those qualities than I had ever even imagined.  Me!

‘You don’t know what it’s like to love somebody the way I love you’.

So it’s the song that defined 40 days and 40 nights of separation and awareness, love and patience, devotion and faith – faith that these are prayers that are being heard, and that angels are whispering answers.

 ***

I’ve been making my Dreamboard all week.

It’s all about our life together. Mr and Mrs L.  I’ve decided that I want to stop work, and be at home. Focusing on us. Building our life. Writing. Preparing for a wedding and for bringing a baby into the world. I’m so clear. We brought in the New Year together. We talked. We’re both so clear that that’s what we both want.

 I posted a request to the Universe yesterday:

“Dear 2013, It’s only 1 week in and you’re hitting me with a hard thing. After spending NYE with L, I want to go home and get on with a 2013 gameplan, even if it means giving up work for a year. But I have a job 90 miles away from Newport Beach and debts to pay – and believe me they have to be paid. All i want is to be in a teepee, taking a break from clients and projects for the next 12 months, building my life with L, writing, getting ready to have a baby. I can’t commute 180 miles every day because it wrecks my body so I’m staying in a town 90 miles away from him so we can’t get on with our life together. I also can’t financially afford to give up work because no debt in the Universe goes unpaid. Everything has to be paid otherwise karma bites you in the ass. So-please provide crystal clear, workable, rewarding and immediate solution. I know you can show me. Thanks so much, Rakhi xxx P.S. For my part, I am working on my dreamboard. You’ll have it by the end of this week. You’ll know from that what kind of solution will work. The angels will tell you.”

 But an old friend said to me:  ‘You do know a made up year can’t hear you, don’t you ?

 I thought he was joking.

But then I remembered that not everyone believes in miracles because not everyone is listening.

So I thought if I told him about the extraordinary things that happened today, and he saw the video I shot when it happened, then he might understand, as I do that 2013 can hear me – I know that it hears me very clearly.

***

When I woke up this morning the first thing that flashed up on my screen was a short and simple message. I felt it’s truth in every cell of my body. ‘I know this,’ I said, ‘I’m so ready.’

 

An hour later this morning my sweet L – who doesn’t know what I posted – texted me spontaneously to say there’s a project up there I can step in to right away. And that’s no small miracle in itself because for the last 7 weeks solid he’s told me he doesn’t believe he can cope with the overwhelm he’s going through if I am working – and has wanted me to stop work and be at home with him for a little bit instead.

 And now this morning, within 12 hrs of making my request, I get this:

 ‘How soon can you stop what you’re doing and start in this new project? You can work here, and be here with me Love – not away anymore. When will you come home Love? I believe you can start here right away. You can come home now Love.’

The Universe is listening.

 ***

I told him that I’d have a think about how soon I can exit the project I am on.

I’ve been unwell all day, but decided to go for a walk to get some air and sun. And to think.

As I walked I thought about how the client would be disappointed by my exit. They had plans and they want me to execute them. I wondered if I ought to stay here, 90 miles away from the life that I want to have, till the end of the month.

 But why would I stay, I wondered when I just asked for an immediate solution to be given to me?

L needs support. He needs me now. Not in a month.

He’s overwhelmed and disoriented and sends me texts all throughout the day telling me what he’s doing, always saying  ‘I miss you deeply Love. When will you come home?’

 Suddenly I had clarity:

I can’t stay a month.

I need to go now.

Maybe this week.

I’m ready.

I’m just ready.

It’s NOW.

 I remembered the image that had greeted me this morning when I woke:

I found myself outside of a cafe that I go to around here. I decided I’d go in. Maybe some tea would calm this madness. I don’t like changing significant direction suddenly. Leave now – right now? Really?

There’s a piano there. There’s always the same guy playing the piano. He’s suitably bohemian: hipster – beard and  glasses, tight jeans and white vest and beret. He was playing when I got in.

 I wasn’t well today and the noise hurt. ‘It’s too noisy’ I thought. ‘Everything hurts I need to go back to bed…’ I decided I’d leave again. I was about to leave when I stopped for a second just to think for a moment before the sunlight would hit my eyes again.

‘Really?’ I asked myself, ‘Really?  You’re going to tell the client you have to leave this week, and that you just won’t be available to develop those ideas for them after all – when you’ve been preparing the 2013 strategy materials. Really?’

I saw my Dreamboard flash up on the screen of my mind.

The client isn’t on it.

This town isn’t on it.

Those projects aren’t on it.

 ***

It’s OK for you to go, ‘  – I thought I could hear those words loudly from somewhere.

 The room around me seemed to go quiet:

 ‘You wanted to go and now it’s hereyour solution.

 I could hear everything around me yet somehow I could hear this even clearer:

 ‘You can go now. Go now and get on with your life together.’

 ***

A feeling of deep calm washed over me.
And then it started.

There was music coming from the piano. And I knew this music.  And it’s never been played there in 5 years of my visiting that place. Not once. I looked up.

And it wasn’t the hipster. It was a man who had looked me directly in the eye when I had walked in. He was a tech guy. He was on his cell phone when our eyes had met for a second. In front of a Macbook Air, and with an i-pad next to him, all his files spread out on the table. He was wearing a blue shirt and blue jeans. He was in his 50s. A straight shooting tech type.

 And now he was at the piano playing an intro I have heard a thousand times. A thousand times.

 I couldn’t believe it as he broke the first line:

 

‘There is a light.

A certain kind of light

A light that is shone on me…’

 

 Just as I had made a decision to go – to go NOW.

 Just after me asking for a solution yesterday.

 Just after L having a change of heart this morning, and not only accepting that I should work, but also lining up a project for me to walk in to.

Just as I was feeling that this is it – it’s time to go, but my heart was having such a hard time convincing my intellect that it’s really OK to do this –

 The tech man started singing the song:

‘Wanted my whole life to be, lived with You. Lived with You’

My song of separation and awareness, love and patience, devotion and faith – and knowing.

***

 We live in an intelligent Universe. Everything is listening. All of the time.

And sometimes answers are delivered by angels who look like a casual tech business man that I have never seen before in a cafe that I have been going to for four years; playing a piano that is usually only ever played by one particular guy; playing a song that I have been praying to through tears and tears and tears.

***

I filmed him because I was so stunned. Tears fell continuously. When he finished, no one clapped – as if they hadn’t even heard him play. He turned around, smiled directly at me, put his jacket on and went back to his laptop.

I remembered again the image that had greeted me when I woke up this morning:

 

 

I turned and walked out into the afternoon sun.

Knowing that I am going to leave town this week.

Knowing that I am going home.

Now.

‘You don’t know what it’s like to love somebody, the way I love you’

Pennies From Heaven

They say when an angel misses you, they toss a penny down from heaven. Sadly, not everyone knows how much truth there is in this old adage.

Spirit has many interesting ways to communicate with us, and always on a very personal level. Your spiritual signs and signals can range from the truly spectacular to the very mundane. And sometimes they can be found in the most unusual places, or when they are least expected. Two of the most commonly sighted phenomena are coins or ‘pennies’, as well as feathers. Depending on your personal belief system, these items are left around for us by loved ones, angels, or animal and spirit guides.

No matter where you believe your signs may be coming from, they are most certainly meant especially for you, and they always have a sincere and personal meaning, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant they may appear to be.

 

So, don’t pass by that penny, When you’re feeling blue. It may be a penny from heaven, that an Angel’s tossed to you – Charles Marshburn

 

Of course, many skeptics doubt that these phenomena exist, and it is often discounted as mere superstition or urban myth. I have, however, had several powerful personal experiences of such signs over the years, and I also hear frequent reports from friends and clients who experience the same thing. Spirit has indeed taught me some very valuable lessons through different signs and signals, and these personal, first-hand experiences contradict the most one-dimensional or misguided opinion of any skeptic.

A dear friend and client recently received very compelling confirmation of the signs she had been questioning for years.* She is currently in the midst of a major life transition and a personal transformation. For quite some time now we have been discussing the signs she has been receiving in the form of popular songs. She keeps hearing them: over the radio, in the gym and in the shopping mall. Once she even heard it on the phone, after she was placed on hold by a call centre. The signs keep coming consistently; every time she asks for them, she receives them. But the doubt secretly creeps back into her mind soon after. What if it was just her imagination?

Two days ago she messaged me, wanting to know if the latest incident was another sign. There is a specific song she has always associated with a certain special person in her life, for a very particular reason. She had now heard this song on three separate occasions at very significant moments. Each time it happened she was either with this person, or she was specifically thinking of him, or she was asking for a sign about him.

 

When suffering comes, we yearn for some sign from God, forgetting we have just had one – Mignon McLaughlin

 

I explained to her that we sometimes receive the same signs more than once, in order to overcome our doubt or fear. In her case she was getting her signs in three’s. But I also knew that she had to see proof of this for herself, before she would feel truly content. I therefore suggested she ask for a confirmation of the fact that important signs come to her in three’s.

The answer came sooner than anticipated. She was in a public place when she received my response. She did not even have to ask for confirmation. The minute she opened my text message on her cellphone, even before she had finished reading all of it, she discovered three pennies on a seat she was about to sit down on.

She immediately sent me the news and I then assured her that pennies are a well-known sign for many people all over the world. I also urged her to keep the pennies in a safe place and have another look at them later, because sometimes the dates or other engravings on them also have special meanings.

The next day I received a follow-up: “Thanks Anthon! You wouldn’t believe this, but later yesterday I saw three feathers. Well, actually four, I saw one at first and did a double take – but dismissed it, then an hour or so later saw a cluster of three feathers together on the floor.”

 

The angels are so enamored of the language that is spoken in heaven that they will not distort their lips with the hissing and unmusical dialects of men, but speak their own, whether there be any who understand it or not – Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Messages from the spiritual realm are potentially life-changing, but they so often pass us by, unnoticed, mostly because of our lack of awareness. In fact, some of us are so stubborn or oblivious to our metaphysical reality that we first have to receive a pebble, then a rock and finally a ton of bricks, before we eventually sit up and pay attention! First there is a message, then a lesson and finally comes the crisis.

If you have never experienced the wonder of witnessing the effect of such miraculous signs and signals in your life, I highly recommend that you consider giving it a shot. What do you stand to lose? All you need to do is heighten your awareness and increase your consciousness. Don’t allow yourself to let your mystical reminders and spiritual signposts pass you by forever.

Signs and signals from the spiritual realm always have a purpose. Most often they are important guideposts or ‘traffic signs’ along our life path, confirming our choices, decisions and actions. Sometimes we receive these messages to console us in times of distress or sadness, while at other times they come as warnings, urging us to proceed with caution.

Reading your special signs and signals is your divine right, and a basic skill that anyone can develop. Some gurus would have you believe that this is a complex art or science, or that it requires special psychic abilities or years of study and practice. The truth is that this is a blessing freely available to all of us, regardless of whom we are or what we believe in. All you need to do is ask, and it will be given.

 

The whole visible universe is but a storehouse of images and signs to which the imagination will give a relative place and value; it is a sort of pasture which the imagination must digest and transform – Charles Baudelaire

 

The best way to start reading signs is by simply becoming more aware. Take more notice of the small wonders that happen in the world around you every day. Look out for patterns and synchronicities, because there are no ‘coincidences’ in life. Everything happens for a reason; there are no windfalls, only godsends.

Soon you will begin to discover your unique set of personal symbols and patterns. Your special signs could come in the form of dreams, colors, words, numbers, sounds, songs, computer messages, clouds, images, animals, people, places or specific objects, like coins and feathers. They could also come in a certain order or they may be repeated a certain number of times. The list of possibilities and combinations is truly endless. It is also very different for each individual, depending on your belief system, as well as your cultural background and your unique personality and interests.

Always keep your expectations simple and don’t expect weird riddles or complex messages. The message is always very clear and direct. The intention is after all to communicate and guide, not to confuse, frighten or mislead you. Also, use some common sense. If you never listen to the radio, you certainly cannot expect it to become a conduit for spiritual communication. Your signs will show up in accessible ways that complement your lifestyle, or match your personal outlook. All you need to do is become more aware and be open to the process.

 

Look after the pennies, and the pounds will take care of themselves – English Proverb

 

Finally, we need to be thankful for every sign or message we receive. Express your gratitude by being kind to yourself and others, and show your appreciation by caring for all living creatures, as well as our magnificent planet. Count each and every blessing.

The Universe is an abundant and interactive place of wonder and magic; it is ready and waiting to respond to your needs. You can heal your life and make all your wishes come true. Spirit wants the opportunity to guide you and protect you on your journey through life.

Acknowledge your higher self and learn to trust your intuition. You have inside of you a deep well of wisdom and you are connected to everything in the Universe. You are part of an infinite and ever-expanding grid of spiritual consciousness.

Use your signs and godsends to re-design your life and create the destiny you truly want; learn to apply your divine ‘early warning system’ to avoid unnecessary obstacles and setbacks along the way. All you need to do is ask. Reclaim what is rightfully yours.

I Tell You This: Every Person Who Has Ever Come To You

 

 

 

 

Sunday, May 1st

“I tell you this:  every person who has ever come to you has come to receive a gift from you.  In so doing, he gives a gift to you – the gift of your experiencing and fulfilling Who You Are.  When you see this simple truth, when you understand it, you see the greatest truth of all:  I HAVE SENT YOU NOTHING BUT ANGELS.”  Conversations with God Book 2 by Neale Donald Walsch as posted on: www.newspirituality.org

Ol’ Boogeyman Still Comin’ To Getcha?

BoogeymanIn my line of work there is often an unhealthy obsession with the concept of evil. It appears we are simply not able to rid ourselves of this ‘thing’ we seem to have for the boogeyman (here in my country known as the tokoloshe).

Just the other day I was listening to a radio psychic scaring the living daylights out of his unsuspecting caller. She just wanted some career advice, but instead he was hell-bent on convincing her that her home was infested with evil entities. His charming co-host also jumped in to offer some old-wives’ cures for getting rid of all the demonic forces. Truth be told, the only disturbance I was picking up on was the fact that the poor, freaked out woman would not be getting much sleep for weeks!

Now, don’t get me wrong. The struggle between good and evil is very, very real. It is a fundamental component of the human condition. It is also the basis of all Creation. It stems from the duality found in every important aspect of our expanding Universe: dark versus light, life versus death, night versus day. Light needs the presence of darkness to be truly visible and meaningful.

 

A belief in a supernatural source of evil is not necessary; men alone are quite capable of every wickedness –  Joseph Conrad

 

The co-existence of good and evil is also the basis for an inner conflict that each of us have to resolve in this lifetime. It is part of the reason why we are here. Both good and evil therefore do serve a purpose in the greater scheme of things. No doubt about that. But blaming the spiritual realm for the darkness of men is my idea of heresy and blasphemy.

Our morbid fascination with all things dark is as old as the hills, but it is still very much de rigueur. Just the fact that psychics and mediums are today still being accused of doing the devil’s work is sufficient proof in itself. In many religious circles ‘fire and brimstone’ remains the height of fashion. Not to mention the latest 2012 doomsday prophecies, conspiracy theories and apocalyptic visions of evil forces, undercover aliens and secret societies; all hype eagerly spread by fear-mongers, spin doctors and social entrepreneurs.

But those are the most obvious kinds of evil mania. What truly amazes me about our obsession with all things evil is that it is not something you only find in traditional churches or conservative circles. No, some truly gifted, spiritually aware and highly intuitive people, with whom I share many beliefs and blessings, are also fanatic about finding evil spirits, curses and dark entities under their beds, inside their closets …and deep-down in the purses and wallets of their clients.

 

The only good is knowledge and the only evil is ignorance – Socrates

 

Yesterday a wonderful client called me, devastated and in tears. She had been persuaded by a well-meaning friend to “try out” another psychic she knows of… just for fun. The self-proclaimed ’spiritual advisor’ had a field day predicting doom and gloom for her current relationship and warned her that another woman was doing magick to steal her man away. She also offered to do spell work for her to fix the problem, to the tune of $400! Meanwhile my client’s love life is perfectly on track and they are in fact a very happy couple. How dare someone mess with the lives of others out of sheer greed? It truly disgusts me. May God have mercy on her soul.

It is deeply disappointing that many who share in the collective consciousness appear to be obsessing about evil entities and dark forces all of the time. In fact, they are so busy doing this that they hardly have any time or energy left to be co-creators in our spiritual evolution. They seem to miss the point that evil is about regression, destruction and reversing into the past. Evil is the antithesis of creation and expansion, and they seem to forget that what they focus on, sadly, does become their reality.

The good versus evil ‘battle’ has been waged one way or another since the dawn of civilization. It is an ancient archetype that is one of the most recognizable themes in literature and the arts. Let’s face it; ‘good guys versus bad guys’ is the stuff that bestsellers and box office hits are made of.

 

Eternal good is eternal becoming or eternally moving forward to greater life. Eternal evil is to cease becoming and “to be” that which was in the past – JJ Dewey

 

I guess it therefore comes as no surprise that some spiritual seekers are forever obsessing about the evil they fear may be creeping up on them. One only has to tune in to a few podcasts, or watch the latest online videos, to witness the spiritual community’s fixation on everything evil. Indeed, fundamentalism is not only found among the religious and the dogmatic. Some of the ‘spiritually enlightened’ and ‘intuitively evolved’ seem to insist on clinging to medieval concepts and out-dated superstitions.

Instead of being fully devoted to unconditional love, kindness, generosity, selflessness and the greater good, much energy, time and money is being spent every day fighting evil entities and keeping the ‘darkness’ and its ‘extremely powerful forces’ at bay. Potions, spells and candles are actually the very products that keep scam psychics and fake mediums in business. All this while the true battle of Armageddon is being fought right here under our noses, in the streets in front of our houses.

There is no dominating source of evil, because if there was, we would not exist, nature would not exist and neither would the Universe. It is counter-productive to assign so much influence and power to something that is in fact just vast emptiness, non-entity and anti-matter.

 

To rid ourselves of our shadows – who we are – we must step into either total light or total darkness. Goodness and evil – Jeremy P. Johnson

 

I have often said, and will say it again, if you want to know true evil just switch on the evening news. If you are curious to see the real face of Satan, you will find him lurking on the cover of celebrity magazines, in newspapers and on political campaign posters. The battle between good and evil is not being fought in the spiritual realm. Spirit knows no anger, envy, fear, violence or hatred. The real war is happening in mundane places, like the television set in your parlor or at your child’s school.

If you want to find demons, shadow people or anti-Christs, look for them in our educational institutions, communities, churches and governments. If you truly want to find evil incarnate, seek it among the school bullies in our midst, those who drive their peers to suicide or post vile online jokes about their deaths.

Stop hunting ghosts, witches, psychic vampires and energy thieves, and rather expose the narcissists among us who dominate, dictate and destroy so many relationships, families, careers and lives – devoid of empathy and compassion. Search also the boardrooms, public offices and parliaments. There you will find among our leaders and kings many ego-maniacs who abuse their power, corrupt their economy and violate the basic human rights of their people, while they wage senseless wars on their critics and each other.

 

It is a man’s own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways – Buddha

 

Evil, darkness, threat and fear are not spiritual forces… they are the evil creations of man. JJ Dewey writes that “all forces, powers, and energies are neither good nor evil in themselves. They are completely neutral, but only become good or evil when they are intelligently directed.” He also states that “all energies and creations vibrating in their pure state are good.” And that is the whole point. Focusing so much of our thoughts, feelings and intentions on evil, instead of that which is good, is counter-productive and contrary to our Divine Purpose. We are here to serve each other and grow, expand and become, not to cast an exaggerated, ominous shadow over all that is potentially good in the world.

The spiritual realm is much like the natural world. It is in essence breathtakingly perfect, completely harmonious and utterly flawless. I have yet to meet an evil animal or discover a satanic plant. The only evil I have ever witnessed among plants and animals are the scars left on them by the inhumane, dark deeds of men. It is certainly not the devil who is trashing the environment, abusing the animal kingdom or trampling the hearts of loving women and breaking the spirits of brave men.

The Divine Light that you and I come from, and will return to one day, knows no evil and does not recognize the power of these shadows that some so willingly fear and follow. Believing in the supremacy of evil entities and dark beings implies that we all come from a spiritual place of imperfection. It suggests that the Divine Source is somehow diseased, that Creation is riddled with flaws and falsehoods that dwell among us. And, worst of all, that we are so far superior in our human state that we alone are capable of fixing this broken, dysfunctional or chaotic spiritual mess.

 

The reason our definition of good and evil changes over the ages is because our capacity to understand and experience freedom changes – JJ Dewey

 

I realize that for some it must be fun to indulge in this paranormal soap opera, but most of us simply don’t have the time, or the inclination. We know we have much work to do, gifts to offer, blessings to share. We are the Wounded Healers, the Empaths, the Shamans, the Indigo Children, the Starseeds, and the Lightworkers. We speak to the Angels, listen to our Spirit Guides and trust in the guidance of our Ancestors, Ascended Masters and Loved Ones. We fight true evil by saving the planet and healing humanity, by drying one tear at a time.

We have no need for spells, talismans or obsessive-compulsive psychic defenses, for we are surrounded by the everlasting and indestructible shields of Love, Peace and Harmony. The phenomenal power of our Spiritual Heritage surges through our being every moment of every day. We are illuminated by the Divine; there is much Light around us.

The spiritual evolution of mankind is our ultimate aim, our Divine duty. As we continue to expand the Universe, this dazzling, bright Light we carry will continue to emanate from us with much Glory. And we know that there shall come a time when there will be no more evil among men. And we shall know that all is Good.

Pennies From Heaven

They say when an angel misses you, they toss a penny down from heaven. Sadly, not everyone knows how much truth there is in this old adage.

Spirit has many interesting ways to communicate with us, and always on a very personal level. Your spiritual signs and signals can range from the truly spectacular to the very mundane. And sometimes they can be found in the most unusual places, or when they are least expected. Two of the most commonly sighted phenomena are coins or ‘pennies’, as well as feathers. Depending on your personal belief system, these items are left around for us by loved ones, angels, or animal and spirit guides.

No matter where you believe your signs may be coming from, they are most certainly meant especially for you, and they always have a sincere and personal meaning, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant they may appear to be.

 

So, don’t pass by that penny, When you’re feeling blue. It may be a penny from heaven, that an Angel’s tossed to you – Charles Marshburn

 

Of course, many skeptics doubt that these phenomena exist, and it is often discounted as mere superstition or urban myth. I have, however, had several powerful personal experiences of such signs over the years, and I also hear frequent reports from friends and clients who experience the same thing. Spirit has indeed taught me some very valuable lessons through different signs and signals, and these personal, first-hand experiences contradict the most one-dimensional or misguided opinion of any skeptic.

A dear friend and client recently received very compelling confirmation of the signs she had been questioning for years.* She is currently in the midst of a major life transition and a personal transformation. For quite some time now we have been discussing the signs she has been receiving in the form of popular songs. She keeps hearing them: over the radio, in the gym and in the shopping mall. Once she even heard it on the phone, after she was placed on hold by a call centre. The signs keep coming consistently; every time she asks for them, she receives them. But the doubt secretly creeps back into her mind soon after. What if it was just her imagination?

Two days ago she messaged me, wanting to know if the latest incident was another sign. There is a specific song she has always associated with a certain special person in her life, for a very particular reason. She had now heard this song on three separate occasions at very significant moments. Each time it happened she was either with this person, or she was specifically thinking of him, or she was asking for a sign about him.

 

When suffering comes, we yearn for some sign from God, forgetting we have just had one – Mignon McLaughlin

 

I explained to her that we sometimes receive the same signs more than once, in order to overcome our doubt or fear. In her case she was getting her signs in three’s. But I also knew that she had to see proof of this for herself, before she would feel truly content. I therefore suggested she ask for a confirmation of the fact that important signs come to her in three’s.

The answer came sooner than anticipated. She was in a public place when she received my response. She did not even have to ask for confirmation. The minute she opened my text message on her cellphone, even before she had finished reading all of it, she discovered three pennies on a seat she was about to sit down on.

She immediately sent me the news and I then assured her that pennies are a well-known sign for many people all over the world. I also urged her to keep the pennies in a safe place and have another look at them later, because sometimes the dates or other engravings on them also have special meanings.

The next day I received a follow-up: “Thanks Anthon! You wouldn’t believe this, but later yesterday I saw three feathers. Well, actually four, I saw one at first and did a double take – but dismissed it, then an hour or so later saw a cluster of three feathers together on the floor.”

 

The angels are so enamored of the language that is spoken in heaven that they will not distort their lips with the hissing and unmusical dialects of men, but speak their own, whether there be any who understand it or not – Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Messages from the spiritual realm are potentially life-changing, but they so often pass us by, unnoticed, mostly because of our lack of awareness. In fact, some of us are so stubborn or oblivious to our metaphysical reality that we first have to receive a pebble, then a rock and finally a ton of bricks, before we eventually sit up and pay attention! First there is a message, then a lesson and finally comes the crisis.

If you have never experienced the wonder of witnessing the effect of such miraculous signs and signals in your life, I highly recommend that you consider giving it a shot. What do you stand to lose? All you need to do is heighten your awareness and increase your consciousness. Don’t allow yourself to let your mystical reminders and spiritual signposts pass you by forever.

Signs and signals from the spiritual realm always have a purpose. Most often they are important guideposts or ‘traffic signs’ along our life path, confirming our choices, decisions and actions. Sometimes we receive these messages to console us in times of distress or sadness, while at other times they come as warnings, urging us to proceed with caution.

Reading your special signs and signals is your divine right, and a basic skill that anyone can develop. Some gurus would have you believe that this is a complex art or science, or that it requires special psychic abilities or years of study and practice. The truth is that this is a blessing freely available to all of us, regardless of whom we are or what we believe in. All you need to do is ask, and it will be given.

 

The whole visible universe is but a storehouse of images and signs to which the imagination will give a relative place and value; it is a sort of pasture which the imagination must digest and transform – Charles Baudelaire

 

The best way to start reading signs is by simply becoming more aware. Take more notice of the small wonders that happen in the world around you every day. Look out for patterns and synchronicities, because there are no ‘coincidences’ in life. Everything happens for a reason; there are no windfalls, only godsends.

Soon you will begin to discover your unique set of personal symbols and patterns. Your special signs could come in the form of dreams, colors, words, numbers, sounds, songs, computer messages, clouds, images, animals, people, places or specific objects, like coins and feathers. They could also come in a certain order or they may be repeated a certain number of times. The list of possibilities and combinations is truly endless. It is also very different for each individual, depending on your belief system, as well as your cultural background and your unique personality and interests.

Always keep your expectations simple and don’t expect weird riddles or complex messages. The message is always very clear and direct. The intention is after all to communicate and guide, not to confuse, frighten or mislead you. Also, use some common sense. If you never listen to the radio, you certainly cannot expect it to become a conduit for spiritual communication. Your signs will show up in accessible ways that complement your lifestyle, or match your personal outlook. All you need to do is become more aware and be open to the process.

 

Look after the pennies, and the pounds will take care of themselves – English Proverb

 

Finally, we need to be thankful for every sign or message we receive. Express your gratitude by being kind to yourself and others, and show your appreciation by caring for all living creatures, as well as our magnificent planet. Count each and every blessing.

The Universe is an abundant and interactive place of wonder and magic; it is ready and waiting to respond to your needs. You can heal your life and make all your wishes come true. Spirit wants the opportunity to guide you and protect you on your journey through life.

Acknowledge your higher self and learn to trust your intuition. You have inside of you a deep well of wisdom and you are connected to everything in the Universe. You are part of an infinite and ever-expanding grid of spiritual consciousness.

Use your signs and godsends to re-design your life and create the destiny you truly want; learn to apply your divine ‘early warning system’ to avoid unnecessary obstacles and setbacks along the way. All you need to do is ask. Reclaim what is rightfully yours.

* Dedicated to my friend ‘Ms C’. Thank you for allowing me to share your story with the world.

Ol’ Boogeyman Still Comin’ To Getcha?

In my line of work there is often an unhealthy obsession with the concept of evil. It appears we are simply not able to rid ourselves of this ‘thing’ we seem to have for the boogeyman (here in my country known as the tokoloshe).

Just the other day I was listening to a radio psychic scaring the living daylights out of his unsuspecting caller. She just wanted some career advice, but instead he was hell-bent on convincing her that her home was infested with evil entities. His charming co-host also jumped in to offer some old-wives’ cures for getting rid of all the demonic forces. Truth be told, the only disturbance I was picking up on was the fact that the poor, freaked out woman would not be getting much sleep for weeks!

Now, don’t get me wrong. The struggle between good and evil is very, very real. It is a fundamental component of the human condition. It is also the basis of all Creation. It stems from the duality found in every important aspect of our expanding Universe: dark versus light, life versus death, night versus day. Light needs the presence of darkness to be truly visible and meaningful.

 

A belief in a supernatural source of evil is not necessary; men alone are quite capable of every wickedness –  Joseph Conrad

 

The co-existence of good and evil is also the basis for an inner conflict that each of us have to resolve in this lifetime. It is part of the reason why we are here. Both good and evil therefore do serve a purpose in the greater scheme of things. No doubt about that. But blaming the spiritual realm for the darkness of men is my idea of heresy and blasphemy.

Our morbid fascination with all things dark is as old as the hills, but it is still very much de rigueur. Just the fact that psychics and mediums are today still being accused of doing the devil’s work is sufficient proof in itself. In many religious circles ‘fire and brimstone’ remains the height of fashion. Not to mention the latest 2012 doomsday prophecies, conspiracy theories and apocalyptic visions of evil forces, undercover aliens and secret societies; all hype eagerly spread by fear-mongers, spin doctors and social entrepreneurs.

But those are the most obvious kinds of evil mania. What truly amazes me about our obsession with all things evil is that it is not something you only find in traditional churches or conservative circles. No, some truly gifted, spiritually aware and highly intuitive people, with whom I share many beliefs and blessings, are also fanatic about finding evil spirits, curses and dark entities under their beds, inside their closets …and deep-down in the purses and wallets of their clients.

 

The only good is knowledge and the only evil is ignorance – Socrates

 

Yesterday a wonderful client called me, devastated and in tears. She had been persuaded by a well-meaning friend to “try out” another psychic she knows of… just for fun. The self-proclaimed ’spiritual advisor’ had a field day predicting doom and gloom for her current relationship and warned her that another woman was doing magick to steal her man away. She also offered to do spell work for her to fix the problem, to the tune of $400! Meanwhile my client’s love life is perfectly on track and they are in fact a very happy couple. How dare someone mess with the lives of others out of sheer greed? It truly disgusts me. May God have mercy on her soul.

It is deeply disappointing that many who share in the collective consciousness appear to be obsessing about evil entities and dark forces all of the time. In fact, they are so busy doing this that they hardly have any time or energy left to be co-creators in our spiritual evolution. They seem to miss the point that evil is about regression, destruction and reversing into the past. Evil is the antithesis of creation and expansion, and they seem to forget that what they focus on, sadly, does become their reality.

The good versus evil ‘battle’ has been waged one way or another since the dawn of civilization. It is an ancient archetype that is one of the most recognizable themes in literature and the arts. Let’s face it; ‘good guys versus bad guys’ is the stuff that bestsellers and box office hits are made of.

Holiday Angels

Whichever name you cherish for this beautiful season of giving and receiving, Main Street Angel wishes you Noticeable Blessings throughout.  Each of you everywhere, and of every background, have Angels all around at you every moment of every day.  And did you know that angels work by  occupation as well as by name?  It’s absolutely true!  So, as you shop, decorate, or prepare special meals, allow your angels to help you with the season’s tasks.  For a start, invite the "shopping angels" and the "parking angels" along on your holiday adventures.  I also invite the "wardrobe angels" when I am getting ready for a party or event  (you’ll be amazed how quickly your closet shows up just the right thing).  There is no limit to the occupations the angels work with.  There are "joy angels," "comfort angels," "career angels," and "money angels," to name a few.  There is no order of difficulty for the angels and nothing we ask is too great or too small. 

As an angel communicator, one of the questions I’m often asked is, "How can I hear my angels?"  Here’s the first step.  Consider the word "Angel" itself.  The "A," stands for "Ask."  The last letter, "L," stands for "Listen."  The angels have very quiet, soothing voices, much like the whisper of a leaf moved by a slight breeze.  Listening for angel-speak takes practice.  Set aside a few quiet moments from day to day to "ask" and to "listen."  Five or 10 minutes in the morning works for me.  The trick is T.R.U.S.T. (To Receive U Stop Thinking).  Make the commitment.  Once you become a regular angel friend, messages will come thru more frequently and clearly.  Next you’ll see that the "NGE" in the word "Angel" really does stand for "No Great Effort."

If you ‘d like to learn more abour your angels or are thinking about an Angel Reading for a future date, visit www.MainStreetAngel.com or email Nancine@MainStreetAngel.com.  We have great holiday specials for you!  In the meantime, I am caroling-caroling my deepest gratitude to each of you for another beautiful year of angel connections which you have allowed me to facilitate. 

Merry Christmas and Noticeable Miracles In Your Day!  Nancine Meyer,  Nancine@MainStreetAngel.com

 

Do You Believe in Guidance?

I’m not just talking about intuitive guidance. I’m talking about angels and spirit guides. Yes, I’m going there.

In getting ready to attend the I Can Do It! conference in San Diego in a couple of weeks, I spoke with Sonia Choquette, Ph.D, one of the conference presenters. Sonia is world-renowned author, healer, intuitive guide and spiritual teacher. She is best known for her workshops and books on connecting people with their guidance systems, including angels and spirit guides. She defines angels as “light beings that meet you at the first breath, assist you and walk with you throughout life, and walk you back to heaven at your last breath.”

Sonia told me that 30 years ago most people perceived her as a nut, a kook, a weirdo, and a deviant. Now, she says, she is being invited to speak at business conferences, at universities, in hospital groups, and church groups.

 

Could angel guidance be moving from marginalization to mainstream?

In my own case, I feel confident now to admit that I have dabbled in spirit and angel guidance over the years. This is something that I have kept mostly to myself because of not wanting to be marginalized. As a non-religious person, but a very spiritually-oriented one, I have relied upon my intuition and occasional assistance from my “helpers” to guide the way. I have noticed that the more I tune into and acknowledge my guides, the more assistance they provide.

“We are now beginning to recognize and even hear from people that we have great respect for – scientists and doctors and philosophers — that say that there really is actually more consciousness to be accessed and to tune into than just our strict intellectual dialogue,”  says Sonia.

 

So how do you open up to guidance if you’ve never done it before? (Or if you already have, how do you open up more?)

Sonia suggests a four-step plan.

Step one. Be open to it. This is the most important step. Most people who aren’t receiving guidance aren’t open to the idea that it’s available. Being open to it is like turning on the radio. Being open to it accesses a part of your consciousness that is receptive … your right brain.

Step two. Expect guidance. Take a little more definitive and risky choice and actually expect that guidance will come.

Step three. Invite guidance in. Guidance will come through your heart. When you want guidance, take a deep breath and let out the sound “HA” because it opens the heart. You can literally feel the opening.  It also opens the throat, and it relaxes the mind. Put your hand right on your heart. Pose the question that you are seeking guidance on. Then, without hesitation, answer out loud: “My heart says …”  Just be curious about what pops out. There’s your guidance.

Step four. Act on it. Then your life will transform.

Tip: When you receive guidance or synchronicity in your life, instead of treating it as something peculiar or bizarre, talk about it positively. Try saying: “The most beautiful thing came through today. I can’t explain it, but I’ll take it.”

While angel and spirit guidance may still sound marginal to some, you can think of it this way: “We have our national guards, our policemen, our volunteer crew, our army, and our navy. We have many levels of support in the human experience, and we have that same pantheon of support in the Divine realm as well,” says Sonia.

It may be fun to give the four-step guidance plan a try. Why not see what happens?

Sonia Choquette will be teaching at the I Can Do It! 2010 conference in San Diego, May 14 – 16. Click here for more information.
