Today I went to watch the sunrise from the beach, and have breakfast with my lovely friend Julie Cross. Like me, Julie is a widow with young sons – and like me, she talks to a lot of other young widows. We feel it’s important to share the light and pass the torch to those of us still struggling with this weird world of widowhood. (Yes even a dozen or so years on and it’s still a weird world).
We were blessed to see dolphins just a few metres offshore today – that was a blessing, but for me a particularly big deal. You see, I’d been working through some thoughts about what to do with my gifts, and having had a firm nudge lately to share more of my psychic gifts with others, I had specially asked my guides this morning as I wa driving up to the beach to please give me a sign to help with some clarity and intentions about this issue, and I asked for the sign to be a sighting of dolphins. I specifically said, please send me dolphins today.
I later found out from another friend – a newly widowed lady named Tessa – that in the 2+ years since she moved to live in that particular spot, right on the beach, that she’s never seen dolphins there before. Wow! I was feeling very blessed indeed when I learned that.
I mentioned Julie, not just because she is a lovely friend who also happens to be a widow, but because Julie is a lady who is big on signs. Feathers are her ‘thing’. Mine too, but perhaps to a lesser extent. Julie finds feathers on a daily basis, and always at times and in places where she knows for sure they are sent to her by either her late husband and/or her guides. As we were talking about ‘things’ it finally dawned on me that helping other widows is how I most want to use my gifts. And there it was. The words fell out of my mouth, the signs were there, and the people present were all perfectly aligned with my intentions at the start of the day. And it felt right.
The thing with signs is that they are truly everywhere if you know how to spot them. From the song on the radio, to the feathers at your feet, to the people who come into your life – these are all far from co-incidence. The guidance sought is often sent to you as signs. Signs as physical manifestations, ideas in your head that seem to come out of ‘nowhere’ but are ‘perfect’ at the time, and in many cases we may find a guardian angel in our path with a comment, helpfulness, or special care for us on any given day, in any given moment, and always just exactly when we need it.
Next time you are unsure about signs, and have a decision to make or something to work through, as for a sign. Then look for it. Be aware that sometimes it may even be a little more subtle than dolphins or feathers. But you’ll know it for what it is when you are tuned into to see/hear/feel it.
