“When angels help us through life, sometimes they do so in ways that may not be immediately recognizable to us. They often deliver answers, hints, messages, and warnings through signs–signals, or anomalies in life, which let us know that they’re with us.”
~ Doreen Virtue
Happy New Year! Now I know it’s the 12th of January already, but better late than never!
It’s been nearly two months since I last posted and quite a lot has happened. Christmas and New Year for two. I’m also engaged!!!
I’m now on my last day of three weeks leave, during which my partner and I took a 5 day vacation that took us from the country to the sea. It was so peaceful and perfect. After day one the build up of stress from the past year and the always hectic Christmas period just melted away, replaced with quiet serenity. Aaaah 🙂 The proposal took place on the last night, high on the balcony of our holiday unit overlooking the twinkling lights of the Gold Coast over the bay in the distance. Magical! I was shocked, but not necessarily from surprise.
Visions of the future…
Well, it’s been an interesting, joyous and somewhat magical start to the year. When I’m away from work and in a relaxed state I find that I can more easily hear/see/feel the important messages that the universe is sending me. I feel change buzzing around me at the moment and the energy is electric. Three nights prior to the proposal I dreamt of diamond rings, lots of them in boxes all around me, and I noticed I had one on my wedding ring finger. When I looked closely I noticed there was no diamond and I was just wearing a silver band. I think I woke up after this. I mentioned it to my partner the next day and he shrugged it off, but I had a feeling he might propose. As is typical of me, I kept pushing the feeling aside with my rational mind. We’re saving to buy a house this year, why in the world would he want to spend money on a ring? Three nights later and what did he present me with, but a silver band and a proposal! A few days after that I found myself surrounded by diamonds, picking out my ideal engagement ring. Dreams really do come true! hehe.
Baby you can drive my car…
We have two cars, both the same make, model and colour, but one is much older than the other. The old car is my first car. It’s 22 years old and I’ve had it for the past ten. It’s reliable and mechanically sound and has never given us a reason to want to let it go. This being said, for the past couple of weeks whenever I would sit in the car I would get an overwhelming feeling of sadness and nostalgia and words like “I don’t think she’ll last much longer” would pop into my head. Now, a couple of days after returning from our vacation, the fiancée headed off to work in the old car, a few minutes later he called me. A truck had run up the back of him while he was sitting at a stop light. Thankfully fiancée wasn’t injured, but the car didn’t fair so well. We’re currently waiting to hear whether the truck’s insurance company will pay for repairs or just pay us out as a write-off. My intuition tells me the latter…
It’s a sign!
A few days ago, at 4 am, the smoke alarm in our lounge room decided to go off. Up I jumped out of bed with the fiancée and dog in toe to investigate. We found no sign of smoke or fire (which was good), but the alarm continued with it’s high pitched BEEP BEEP BEEP (not so good). We have 12 foot ceilings and no ladder so our solution was to slide the dining table under the alarm and put a chair on top of that, the fiancée then had to stand on our structure while holding onto the ceiling fan in order the pull the wretched thing down. In the end we had to pull the battery out to make it stop. Throughout this ordeal, all I could think was, ‘It’s a sign’, and a very bloody loud one at that! The next day I contacted some highly intuitive and fabulous friends of mine to ask for their thoughts on the matter. They said: “Something is brewing that you need to put a stop to.” “The alarm being at such a height indicates a warning from a higher authority or guide… Make sure you listen to your inner voice, it never leads you astray…. I believe it is a message to do with your higher calling spiritually”. Time to sit up and pay attention I think!
It’s in the cards…
This morning after a short meditation I set the intention of giving myself a card reading for the year ahead. I used a deck that I recently purchased from My Spirit called The Nature Speak Oracle. The card I drew from January is pictured above. Very fitting I think. February was ‘Iris – Maintain hope’ which I’ll go into in more depth next month.
Next I asked for help with my immediate future. I drew these cards from my Doreen Virtue, Messages from your Angels Oracle Cards. I was thinking about work and drew these three cards, one after the other. Absolutely perfect! They are all about my higher spiritual calling and life purpose.
I can feel a certain magic brewing. 2013 felt so stagnate at the time, but was perhaps my year of preparation for the big downhill locomotive that is 2014!
