“Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself, and know that everything in life has purpose. There are no mistakes, no coincidences, all events are blessings given to us to learn from.” ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
It’s funny how little signs and messages are thrown at you. Sometimes they are so vague and easy to miss, while other times they stand out and demand your immediate attention.
Just over a week ago I received some very strong signals around Zen Buddhism. First of all I watched a TV show. Just an ordinary, non-spiritual TV show, yet the main storyline of the episode revolved around Zen Buddhism, with the lead character wishing she could be as peaceful as a floating gardenia. Later that day I watched a video about numerology; there was a lady being interviewed and she started talking about how she practices Zen Buddhism as a way to stay detached from other people’s energy. I thought this was very interesting as Zen Buddhism is not something that generally comes up in day to day conversation. I immediately felt there was something important in this ‘coincidence’.
The following day I had to take my car in for repairs and pick up a hire car. It became quite the ordeal, taking much longer than I had planned. After a lot of waiting and having to do a last minute swap as the car I had been assigned did not have a working power socket to plug my GPS, I finally hopped into my new car for the week and headed to work. Walking out of the car park I looked back at the car and had to do a quick double take. The licence plate was ZEN 580! Not only is ZEN a very prominent sign, but 580 in numerology is also very meaningful. I looked up Angel Number 580 at Joanne Sacred Scribes blog and it resonated deeply. I am working towards starting my own business and have just started laying the foundations of this venture by enrolling in some courses of study.
The message I am receiving loud and clear though, is that I need to slow down and look inside. I need to pay more attention to my higher self and less attention to the physical, material aspect of my life. I am going in the right direction and I will always have abundance. I just need to focus on what is important and the rest will fall into place.
I will be looking into Buddhism more deeply also.
