You’ve shared some interesting stories with me about getting signs from your Spirit Guides. Did you know that passed loved ones in spirit can also give you signs?
I have one client who tells me she finds dimes in the laundry all the time. This is from a dear spirit who was very much like her mother to her. It’s the spirit’s way of saying that she is around and supporting her.
Other people find feathers and often in odd places. Sometimes it isn’t a physical object at all, but a song that is connected to that person.
I remember when a coworker died. His favourite song was Over the Rainbow. When his manager was driving home from his funeral, she wondered if he was around in spirit. She turned on the radio and guess what was playing?
My mom died when I was eleven. It’s been thirty years since her death. When she was alive, she used to do Japanese embroidery. I had two of her pieces on the wall in my bedroom.
It used to drive me nuts. I’d go into my room and the pictures were crooked. I’d straighten them, and then a few days later, they would be crooked again!
This was in my early thirties. Although it had been many years that had passed, my emotions were still too strong about her death and I could not connect with her spirit directly without feeling overwhelmed.
I did not clue into the fact that she was doing this until I went for a reading for myself and the medium told me that it was her tipping the pictures. She was trying to tell me – that she was still around me.
Because I’ve always wanted to connect with my mom’s spirit, I did lots of work on myself. In fact, I’ve been doing work on myself ever since my early twenties around this. Recently, I’ve been in a pretty good place, or so I thought until I realized it has been 30 years this year.
It seems like it was out of the blue, but I know this is part of the shift (bringing up all sorts of old unhealed parts of us so we can truly heal). All sorts of old emotions started to come up and show itself in different ways.
But then something happened this morning that changed everything for me.
I decided to do a meditation that activates the light body. When I was sitting in this beautiful light, I saw my mom standing in spirit just to the side of me.
She came at a younger age than when she passed and I was struck by her beauty and her happiness. She reached out, and in my mind’s eye I took her hand. I expected that we would go out travelling into the universe as this is what the light body meditation is for.
To my surprise, she dove right into my heart space. There she showed me a single flower growing. It was a daisy, a small white daisy. This was me.
Then she took my hand again and we went high up into the universe. I looked at her and she turned into an exquisite flower, complex and exotic. Then she changed back. I was sad.
I thought, wow, I’m just this little white daisy and mom is this amazing exotic flower. I felt so small. But my mom smiled at me and turned me around where I saw an enormous bouquet of flowers with all sorts of flowers and colours.
What drew me was one flower that stood out. It was a white daisy. It was shining and pure. I felt that the bouquet would not be complete without this small unassuming flower. I saw the beauty of it. And I knew then, that I was just as important and loved as all the other flowers.
My mom then said that I could be any flower I liked. She showed me inside her heart and I saw three or four white daisies growing in her heart! I understood. We have the free will to grow into anything we want to, but at the heart of us is the true essence.
So I tried. I turned myself into several different types of flowers, and you know what? None of them felt like me.
I came back from my meditation and thought maybe I should go buy a white daisy to meditate on so I could see it’s beauty. Then I thought, maybe someone will give me one.
I put everything out of my head and got ready for my first client. He came and sat down in front of me and said he had brought some things with him so I could do a prayer for him – some camphor, paan leaves, incense, flowers, and coconut.
Flowers? I began to smile. No, it couldn’t be, could it? He reached into the bag and pulled out four white daisies! Oh I laughed! I knew this was a sign from my mom. It was confirmation for me of her message.
Your spirit guides give you signs to let you know that you are on the right track or that they are around you. Your family in spirit can also give you signs. All you need to do is be open and ask.
