“If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if the simplest things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive.”
~ Eleanora Duse
Most of us like to think we’re aware, to a degree. For those attuned to their awareness, isn’t it odd that the more aware you become, the more you are aware of what you have been missing? This is evident with the messages we receive for directing, choosing, and guiding our lives.
So ponder this…how do you know what choices to make, direction to take, or things to change? The answer: you ask questions, often through your thoughts. Sometimes it’s a seemingly endless stream of questions, all in search of answers. Yet think about it…you have never asked a question, said a prayer, or made a wish that wasn’t answered through countless messages surrounding you each day.
How many times have you been listening to a song, reading a billboard, running into the same person, or had a totally unrelated thought pop into your mind – only to have it or them create clarity or inspiration for you? They seem to frequently materialize, don’t they? At least the ones we notice. That begs the question: What messages am I missing?
Here are two tips for receiving messages and knowing what to do with them:
Don’t look for the messages and especially the meanings or an understanding. The messages are always there or soon will be. All that is required is to slow down and pay attention to what is around you. Be curious and interested, then…
- Do look for resonance. Do the messages resonate (feel a connection) with you and feel right and sensible? If they don’t, it doesn’t mean the message is the “wrong” message, it may be part of a bigger message that hasn’t been totally revealed yet. Keep listening, observing, and accepting the messages. You will know the answer soon enough and the resonance will happen, sometimes like a bolt of lightning.
I’ve witnessed this repeatedly with clients. Clarity comes when we focus on what we want to experience, learn, or know the path for or to. With clear questions we will get complete messages that resonate with us and provide the guidance we need and want. Then all we have to do is openly receive the messages that answer the questions or concerns.
Is this message for you? If yes, what will you do with it?
