In October of 2012, a good friend of mine passed away. His birthday was the day before Halloween and all month his birthday reminder was marked on my calendar. However, two days prior to the date the notification disappeared. This reminder was a feature of Facebook and I assumed he took the date off his profile and I sent him a birthday hello anyway. However, much to my sadness he would never receive my greeting. The day of his birthday, I was scrolling through the social media news feed when I learned that my friend had died the day before his birthday. Curiously, his birth information was still active on Facebook but for some reason it was not showing up on my calendar like all the other notifications – as if someone or something was trying to alert me to what was happening. The universe is always communicating with us but we have to be willing to see and be aware in order to get the messages and taking advantage of the opportunities they bring like sending a birthday hello a day earlier than originally intended.
Over the many years that I have studied and practiced metaphysics, I have become very adept at recognizing how universal spirit energy interacts with my daily mundane world to bring me the information I need to stay conscious and aware of the reality unfolding in my life. As a matter of fact, I am very much in the habit of asking to be given a “heads up” in regards to the status of my loved ones or the circumstances unfolding in my life so that I am aware of what I can, or cannot, do about what is transpiring for good or bad. As a result, I often have lucid dreams in which I receive information about people and their status, I’ll hear songs on the radio that validate my choices, and I even experience difficulties with my electronic devices (such as my phone) telling me that what I am experiencing in the moment is highly significant and I should not ignore what needs to be done.
With our shift into 2013 and the dawning of a new world age, it is becoming increasingly more important that we become aware of the events taking place around us and learn to discern their symbolic messages so we can work with spirit toward creating the greater realities we wish to experience today. If you don’t know how to discern the symbolism around you, seek a higher or clairvoyant education and what truth means to you. If you already know how to discern the symbolism of your life, heed the messages and act without delay taking advantage of the vast opportunities for change and growth you have today.
