Spirit is always watching

Tuning into your loved ones in Spirit is as easy as thinking of them.  People always ask me, “do they hear me when I talk to them?”  The answer is YES!  Your loved ones are always listening. Your thoughts send out a sort of ‘bat signal’ to them, and they do respond.  Talking to Spirit is easy, but listening is another story!

Spirit is always watching!

Spirit is always watching!

Sometimes when our loved ones reach out to us, it’s subtle- almost too subtle. It’s easy to write it off as imagination or coincidence. I’ll give an example from my own life to sort of illustrate this.

On one particular day while I was still living in San Antonio, I had been driving around talking to my Spirit People (so yes, if you see me talking while I’m alone in my car, I’m not talking to myself…well, not always!) My time there was rough and I had many challenges. As I put out my own ‘bat signal,’ I pulled into the parking lot of a local strip mall. Once I was out of my car, of course, I had to stop talking out loud, but my thoughts were still emitting a signal.  As we all do, I asked Spirit for guidance and support through the rough patch I was going through. As I wandered through the aisles, sliding the hangers back and forth looking for something pretty to cheer me up, it happened. I hadn’t noticed there was any music playing in the store at all, when suddenly I heard, “I need a sign to let me know you’re here.”  It was “Calling All Angels,” by Train. I smiled to myself and thought, ‘are you kidding me?’  That was my sign. I had, in fact, been calling in all of my Angels.  The song continued, “I need to know that things are gonna look up.”  That, my friends, was Spirit at work.

Spirit knows what you pay attention to, and they work with your subconscious mind to draw your attention to things. Many times, my eyes will be drawn toward a particular object, photo or a particular area of a room.  Sometimes it’s because an actual Spirit person is trying to manifest in a specific spot.  Other times it’s super obvious, like the actual photo of the person who is trying to communicate.

The key to receiving communication from Spirit is

to be in the habit of  ‘noticing.’

When I use the term, ‘noticing,’ I am referring to the practice of letting go of your conscious thought patterns and simply allowing yourself to be drawn to things. In order to become used to allowing that unconscious part of your mind to communicate with you, you must master the art of meditation.  If you never have a moment during your waking hours that is free of all noise, you will undoubtedly miss out on the subtleties of Spirit communication.

Meditation doesn’t have to be serious. It can happen when you are doing something that is fairly routine and mundane, requiring very little of your focus. Many times I will slip into a meditative state during my outdoor walks, or doing the dishes! The task occupies your ‘busy mind,’ allowing your unconscious mind to become more open and aware.

Your unconscious mind is like a meek, little child,

waiting for the chance to be heard,

but somehow always standing in line

behind the noisier parts of us,

hence it very rarely gets the chance to be heard.

Sitting quietly for just a few minutes a day and allowing yourself to just ‘be’ in the moment is the first step to giving that little child a chance to speak. It is really important that you do not try to distinguish between what is real and what is imagined. That is a function of the conscious mind, which is supposed to be taking a back seat during this process. That’s not to say you’re going to be in a trance, more like instead of being so active in the ‘conversation,’ you’re simply listening without analyzing.

I love to share the experiences I have, involving my grandmother, because over the years she’s become very good at playing with me, and surprising me with her cleverness. One night before bed, as is my custom, I was speaking to her and telling her about my day.  Some odd things had happened, and my analytical mind was racing. After I was finished with my rant, I quieted my thoughts and took a few deep breaths. In my mind’s eye, I saw an image of a little bunch of hydrangea flowers. I didn’t know what it meant, but as with all communication from Spirit, it is not always a logical process. I saw her face in my mind’s eye, smiling and nodding, which told me that it was simply a message to take with me, without interpretation.

The next day, I felt the urge to go to the cemetery. As I was driving, I felt this strong pull to visit my great-grandmother’s grave first. It was subtle. I simply saw the headstone in my mind and from experience, I knew I needed to go there first. I walked over and said my hello’s and goodbye’s, and on the way back to the car, eyes on the ground wiping away some tears of love, I saw a little bunch of hydrangea flowers. It was from an artificial arrangement that somehow found itself blown directly in my path, right?  If that’s what you think, you haven’t been reading!  I laughed and the tears stopped. I bent down to pick it up, thinking to myself, “I’ll bring this over to her and lay it on her grave, but it would be nice to have something for my grandfather too.”  No sooner had the thought arose in my mind, that I looked about a foot further and saw another bunch of hydrangea. Now I was really laughing.

I walked over to the grave and placed the two bunches in front of the headstone with a smirk, and said, “So you think you’re pretty smart, don’t you?”

Yes, she does. She really does. 🙂
