Whenever I hit a block and feel as if I don’t know what to do next, I always ask the Universe for help. I ask for a sign. Something to remind me that I’m not crazy. I ask for a sign of reassurance that I am infinitely supported. I don’t ask often, and sometimes when I do ask, I immediately tell myself to be quiet because I know better and I already have the utmost faith that I am infinitely supported, but still there are times when I feel that a gentle reminder wouldn’t go amiss.
After I had been on my own for a while a few years back, I was walking along the beach and was wondering whether I would find a partner to love again. I asked my angels for a sign, just something small to reassure me that love would come my way again. I continued my walk and after a while began to make my way back to my car, still asking in my head for a sign. As I neared the car park I received a message to keep walking on the beach, on beyond the car park. “Just keep going.” was the message. I had already been walking for a few hours and I paused, wondering whether to go on or not. I decided to act on the message I had received and kept walking. About ten minutes further along the beach I stopped dead in my tracks and laughed. On a completely deserted part of the beach, right in the middle of my path was a massive love heart made from large beach rocks. “Okay” I said aloud, “You got me, thank you that was one hell of a sign.” My faith was one hundred percent restored.
On another occasion, I was again walking along the beach, a different beach this time. I had been thinking about my dad as the anniversary of his death had just passed. As I walked, I asked him for a sign that he was still around me. It was a beautiful day and I thought perhaps the sign may come from a pod of dolphins appearing in the water beside me, or in the form of another piece of rock art. The beach was once again deserted as I walked to the far end and began my return. On my return, I was forced to stop as my path was being blocked by the local surf club who were in the middle of launching a boat. I stood there waiting to pass, looking at the ocean searching for dolphins and enjoying the beautiful sun. As I turned around to see how much longer the launch would take, I received the biggest sign I have ever had in my life to date. The boat on the back of the trailer, right in front of me, was called “The James ‘Jimmy’ Miller.” My dad’s name was James Miller, and he was always known as Jimmy. I couldn’t believe it. I was completely stunned and in complete awe of the magic of the Universe. Never again have I ever doubted for a second that my dad is anywhere other than around me, always.
My latest sign was a prompt to share these miraculous notes from the Universe. Last week I had been feeling blocked in a particular area and so I asked for a sign that everything would work out. In my head, I had the same old fight with myself. I didn’t need a sign because I had faith that everything would work out well and all in good time, while at the same time I felt the need for just a tiny bit of reassurance.
As I meditated on this block, I had a vivid visualisation of a large green emerald. It was a beautifully cut stone, large in size and the deepest emerald green. The image had remained in my head but was known to no-one but me. Then just yesterday I met up with a friend that I had not seen since Christmas. She handed me the Christmas present she had saved for me, still in the lovely Christmas wrapping paper. Excitedly I tore open the wrap, and then opened a box. Image my surprise and utter delight when I saw before me a beautiful pair of the deepest emerald green cut glass earrings! “You’re not going to believe this.” I said…
