Throughout my life, whenever I’ve been presented with a challenge or a fork in the road, Spirit has placed someone in my path to help me move forward in my journey. Each of these amazing people has made an immortal imprint on my soul, and I will forever be grateful for their appearance at just the right time.
This is a soul lesson that is of vital importance, especially in times when we are certain we are alone in our struggles. For most of us, the little gifts that Spirit places carefully on our path are not evident until long after the experience has passed. Aging has a way of showing us what was important in the past, and hopefully helps us to be mindful of this wisdom in our future. Hindsight is 20/20, but wouldn’t it be nice to have just a little bit of foresight now and again? With a little practice, we can come to recognize these signs, symbols, and people sent by Spirit as our experiences are unfolding.
So how does one come to recognize those that step in at just the right time, or a sign that appears to speak solely to us in that moment of need? The first step is building awareness. If we are too focused on our drama, or the bleakness of the situation at hand, we cannot possibly be aware of the little things happening that tell us it’s okay and to grow!
Mediumship- your conversation with Spirit- starts with awareness. Meditation is the best way to experience a shift in your awareness, which is why it is emphasized by so many schools of new age thought. In the absence of the chaos and outside distractions, clarity becomes much easier. Once you have cultivated a relationship with your inner silence, you will begin to feel more grounded, less scattered, and your conversation with Spirit begins. This is where you begin your real work. You see, no matter how many signs Spirit sends your way, it will always be up to you to acknowledge it or ignore, to use the information or toss it to the wind. True messages from Spirit will always guide you, never push you. This is for a very good reason. Spirit gave us free will, and therefore cannot interfere without your consent. Guidance will be available to you when you ask, but whether or not you act on it is entirely up to you. This means that in order for something to happen as a result of this guidance, YOU have to do something!
They say someone steps into your life for a Reason, a Season or a Lifetime. This is true, especially when it comes to divine guidance on your path. Some people you meet will serve one purpose only– to deliver a message, or to get you from one stepping stone to another, hence they appear for a Reason. During the periods of time when you are in a state of suspension on your journey you may meet someone who will remain with you until you find your footing. They come for only a Season. If you love deeply, and keep an open heart you will have many who fit the last description of those who step into your life and remain with you until the end of your Lifetime. They move with you through your cycles, and hardships, always making sure to be your safety net if /when the time comes that you need one. These people are true treasures. Keep in mind that throughout your travels, you will also be the Reason, Season, or Lifetime gift for others you encounter on your path. You will be THEIR gift. :)
Here’s a little tip – those who are sent to save you, will sometimes come in the guise of someone who, themselves, needs saving! Do not be fooled. The simple act of caring for another can be the most therapeutic thing for our own selves. This is a very special way that Spirit guides us, because sometimes we ask for help but aren’t open to receiving it directly as guidance. So Spirit finds a way to help you while you’re not looking. ;) Spirit never gives up on us.
Count your blessings, for they are many.
