The gift of intuition, of noticing what you notice, and how to benefit and integrate omens, symbols and every day messages from the Universe
The Different Forms Of In-Tuitive Communication
With recent events of the global pandemic, the travel/social restrictions and with the economic uncertainties, life has lost a little bit of its magic. We have been confined or limited of venturing out into the big wide world and it has taught many of us the meaning of value. We have had to have a good look at ourselves and get our value system and beliefs in check. Suddenly, what seemed so valuable previously, has lost in value and those things that we cannot buy, replace or exchange, have taken the top spot for many us, i.e. - people and valuable experiences!
As UK Psychic Medium Clare has recently explained, "Spirit guides value all the things that are free." Although money, finances and materials are part of our earthly experience and therefore also part of our spiritual path, there is no money in the Spirit world.
Life Happens In The Mind!
As earthly beings, we are experiencing life through feelings and emotions, as a consciousness. All of the outside influences, the experiences, the things which we value or not value, the matter of money, possessions, gains or losses, are all part of our journey. They make us feel and behave in a certain way, which is all part of our growth. Our family, friends, acquaintances, work colleagues or even strangers are part of our emotional experiences. Everything come down to experiences.
The Universe Is Talking To You
The Universe talks to us all the time and this is where the magic is. The good, the bad, the symbolic messages, the omens, the signs, the symbols....everything talks to us! This is where the magic lies...
Through the University of Life, the Universe in-tuitions each and one of us with life events and human interactions - it communicates through and with us via our direct and invisible link, intuition. We then have a choice to follow those invisible commands, to listen to them, to ignore them, to understand them and to the learn this universal type of communication just as if we were learning a foreign language. We gradually decipher the symbolic magic and piece together the pieces of the puzzle.
There is no such thing as a coincidence
Sometimes we are left feeling gobsmacked by the immaculate timing of the Universe. Carefully synchronized events can leave us feeling speechless, but also with an intrinsic sense of knowing, that indeed, there is a Mastermind at play. Something huge is spinning the Wheel of Fortune.
In the Tarot the Wheel Of Fortune ultimately and symbolically tells us that sometimes we get swept up by the invisible current of the Universe, the energetic mystical current, the invisible driving force, and we have to go with the flow and deal with what is being thrown at us. The Wheel Of Fortune is in constant motion and so are we. Sometimes we get some good luck thrown at us and we find ourselves on top of the world, on top of the wheel, whilst other times it feels like lady luck has left us and we feel neglected and get thrown off track for a while and there is nothing that we can do, other than to accept the situation that we find ourselves in and use our inner power, strength, faith and in-tuitive guidance to find the best path forward. We have to surrender.
Regardless of which situation or phase of life we find ourselves in, we are blessed with the gift of inner guidance, our intuition and we also have the Universe talk to us through symbols and messages along the way.
Everything Talks To You
Other than being in-tuitioned by the Universe through our intuition, along the way the Universe talks to us all the time through signs, symbols and messages playing out every day through synchronicities, experiences and life events like a theatre play, fine-tuned specifically for us.
Whether it be a feeling, an incling, a knowing, an animal crossing our path, a gadget at home breaking down, a dream, a work situation, our financial situation, a stranger grabbing our attention, a line in a book, a color, a bus driving past, a song, reading the clouds, finding a heart shaped stone, a message on a bottle, an advertisement or switching on the TV at the right time - everything is synchronized to give us messages and to talk to us all the time.
Whilst I was contemplating and wasting time, thinking about whether I should write my book Money, Intuition & The Law Of Attraction I finally got the message when I had gotten off the plane in Germany. The first huge poster Advertisement I noticed on the street was "WRITE YOUR BOOK!". That was it.
Another time I got stung by a wasp under my toe whilst having a summer day's walk in the park. Don't get me wrong, I wanted to 'curse the beast' LOL, but exactly at the point of being stung I had been thinking about a female I was sharing an Apartement with at the time and things had not been quite Kosher. I noted the incident and a mere one year later this individual did indeed 'sting' me! This is what I had noticed well in advance by listening to the Universe.
What we notice matters!
The key to perceive messages, signs and symbols that are meant for us is to notice what we notice. Not everything is designed for out attention, but what we in particular notice is important. We don't go out looking for signs. We let them come to us, that one split second that grabs our attention, that gives us a little shiver or makes our heart jump.
We can ask a direct question to the Universe and wait for a sign, but I have found that the most impactful messages appear at random, when I am walking somewhere or sitting around thinking about something, and suddenly BANG!, something happens in the outside world and there it is, the answer to my question that I didn't even ask, but which had been on my mind in my thoughts.
The Universe aligns to our thoughts, beliefs, desires, the things we want, but also the things we don't want (it always has a little trick up it's sleeve). It responds to us all the time. Always pay attention. If you notice something, inside or in the outside world, pay attention what has been on your mind and what you have been thinking about. Take note and lock it in a journal.
They key is to notice what you notice, because this is tailored and fine tuned for ourselves in particular. This is magic!
Be Honest With Yourself
One of our major downfalls can be that we are not honest with ourselves. You know what it's like, right? We cling on to the positive omens, the good ones, the feel good factor because it gives us hope that in the end all will be ok. However, it is the warning signals which also play a pivotal role in magic. So, listen to the nagging, the repetitive signs, that disturbing feeling or the intuitive thoughts that keep coming back.
It is more important to be honest with yourself than others!
It's more important to be honest with yourself than others. This is not consent that we can go out and lie to others, but it is a message that out of the two, it is more important that we are honest with ourselves and face the truths. This is exactly what the Universe is trying to teach us.
The Universe is signalling us with little red flags to protect us and guide us down the best possible path for the best possible outcome in any situation, because there is always more than one path that we can take. We always have choice and free will. Sometimes we may find solutions to our problems along the way, we may be able to prevent something, we can change our attitude towards an outcome or we are being granted a wish for an upcoming event that cannot be changed. Whatever it is, we have no choice but to surrender.
Take a career or job situation, a financial or trading investment, for example, that may go wrong. Along the path the Universe may give us signs and signal to us of where we are currently heading, but if we are not honest with ourselves, we may be missing that we have been slacking or have not felt motivated at work and need to pick up the pace again. We may need to look at or mindset, habits and our behaviour or we might need to pull out of an investment trade because it's not going the right way.
If we keep ignoring the signs, the messages, we are not likely to act on them to change the path and ultimately the final outcome. Warning signals aren't pleasant, they don't feel good, but they are not given or provided to scare us. They are little helpers to protect us, give us time to do something about it and to minimize the potential negative outcome.
Be grateful, thank the Universe and ask what it is that is important for you to know
Only you know what a message or a sign means to you. Stay away from traditional or old-fashioned superstitions. They are not valid anymore. The Universe and life has changed. Superstitions are rigid and it means that we already have a preconceived notion that if that one particular event happens, it will be followed by another. Of course, if it's a 'good luck' omen, then by all means believe it. It can only help and be positive. However, if I thought that every time a black cat crosses my path, that I am in for some bad luck, crikey!!! The truth is that I love cats and I'm happy when a black cat crosses my path. It's a way to cancel out some old or traditional belief from playing out.
Our personal mindset plays a pivotal role in how we perceive signs and messages. The good news it that the Universe or our intuition already knows how we will perceive or read our tailored signs and messages, depending on where or how we live our life. What means a lot to me, may mean nothing to you, and hence you wouldn't notice or perceive this or it would have no meaning to you. In this case the Universe will throw something else down your path. This is the magic!!!

The more we notice what is relevant for us, the more life becomes magical and meaningful, because suddenly everything talks to us and we live and perceive more consciously. The more we ask questions and pay attention, the more the Universe will talk to us, we automatically become more intuitive. We begin to notice the things that would have previously passed us by. Intuitive thoughts, feelings, visions or experiences become more noticeable, where before we may have dismissed that intuitive thought as just another random thought. Take note.
How To Decipher Messages, Signs And Symbols
Whether we read a message in the clouds, an animal crosses our path, a favourite plant is wilting, the washing machine breaks, it is imperative that we do not over-analyze and drive ourselves crazy.
Don't go looking for signs! Let it happen!
