The art of interpreting signs from Spirit

When we first begin to converse with Spirit, it is easy to dismiss the things we receive as coincidence or imagination.  We are taught to believe what we see with our physical eyes, and can prove in the physical world. Spirit communication, however, is not the same as one physical being having a conversation with another. The unseen world, although it is all around us, can feel like a fantasy.  This blog will help dispel some of your doubts and preconceived notions about how Spirit communication comes across– as always, using my own personal experiences as examples.

Spirit is persistent, and will not give up until you receive the message that is coming through to you.  You may think you heard something that sounded like it pertained to you, for example, while watching a movie, then later, overhear a conversation while in line at the grocery store that sounds oddly like the answer to your question. You may see various symbols that appear over and over, everywhere you find yourself.  Because we ask so many questions in our minds on a daily basis, we may be unaware that our energies are not only being perceived by Spirit, but are a bit scattered, which can result in receiving messages that appear to be confusing.

Throughout my life, Bear has been one of my most sacred symbols.  I have come to understand that Bear is one of my Totem Animals.  I have had many experiences with Animal Spirits who have appeared to me in dreams, or have shown up as signs in my life when I’ve asked for help in how to handle a situation at hand.  Each animal has its own ‘Medicine.’  There have been several instances where I have had very lucid dreams, in which I’m on a path in the woods and am joined by Wolf, a powerful spirit animal that represents the highest Teacher in the animal spirit kingdom.  I would walk alongside with Wolf, and suddenly understand things instantly that up until that point made no sense to my waking mind, waking up with clarity, and a sense of calm.  Recently, though, I began a course in animal communication that requires me to complete a series of exercises, one of which, is to discover your ‘Power Animal.’   I didn’t really think too much about this, because I had so many experiences with powerful animals like Bear, Wolf, Panther and Hawk.  I thought, ‘one of these must fit that description.’  In the following couple of weeks, I got busy, unable to really sit and focus on these exercises, yet still keeping the thought in mind- ‘Who is my Power Animal?’

NOTE:  Because signs and symbols often appear over a longer length of time in the beginning of your development, it is crucial for you to document anything you notice in your journal, as suggested in my previous post.

The answer came in an interesting sequence of experiences that all pointed to the same, surprising answer.    Over a period of about a month, the Lion made himself known.

   I was nudged to notice images everywhere I went, ranging from architecture, to business logos, Internet memes, and clothing/accessories.  Then, there were the dreams.  They were recurring.  I would be in a dorm, a house, or apartment, and the Lion would be following me.  In one instance, no matter how hard I tried, Lion found me.  I was behind a locked door, and saw his powerful paws, reaching for me from underneath the door!  I was confused because I didn’t feel he would hurt me, but something else told me, ‘hey, this is a lion, and they are dangerous, so you might want to run!’

At this point, I knew the Lion was reaching out to me- literally!   The next step was, ‘why?’  I didn’t understand what this meant.  I looked it up in various resources, but as you know, it’s not always in someone else’s research that you find YOUR answer.  So last night, before I went to sleep, I asked for a sign in a dream.  I also asked that I be awoken from the dream, so I would remember it.  Sure enough, I dreamed of the Lion, but this time he wasn’t chasing me  He simply appeared in all of his majesty.  In a flash, I saw him as a sculpture outside a building.  I woke up instantly, and said out loud, ‘Lion is guarding me.’  I knew at that point, that not only was Lion working with me to guard me through the powerful medicine of his roar, he is my Power Animal.  The qualities that I’ve been guided to exhibit, particularly leadership, are all part of this Medicine.  I got my answer, and now my real work begins.

So as you can see, intuitive work and receiving answers is definitely not the same as a traditional conversation.  You have to have the patience and openness to listen with different senses, and the faith of a child to trust that they are real.  Your journey is your own, and no one else will have the exact same experience with the Divine that you have.   If, however, you would like a little guidance in your development, you may reach out to me at healingstarspirit@yahoo.com to schedule a Personal Development session with me.  I love hearing how Spirit reaches out to people, and I am always happy to be a part of another’s journey back to Spirit.

  1. […] We all have recurring themes in our lives that we chalk up to coincidence, bad luck, or blame on outside influences.  The truth is, they are none of those.  They are forms of communication from that place of knowing inside of us and if we take the time to work with them, they transform us.  One of my biggest personal lessons in this life has been to have the courage to use the power of my voice.   The most recent symbol from Spirit for this specific lesson was written about in a previous post, which you can find here.
