Why wouldn’t you be? It’s not like there’s much to do on a Friday evening or Saturday morning.
Pick your day and time. It all depends on where you are in the world right now.
Well, how about you live your life and maybe have some fun? Not everyone’s inclined to loser tendencies.
Okay! Let me start again. I think the moment has passed.
Deep breaths. Small Steps. Eyes closed. Relaxed mind.
Wow! Now I can’t see what I’m writing. Does this happen to everyone? Or am I the chosen one?
Okayyyy. I’m not Luke. And I already have a dear father. Don’t need another one.
YES! I am a STAR WARS fan. So what?!
Alright. Let me dive right in. Are you in the habit of looking for signs?
Not the ones on roads or on the fronts of buildings. But signs that might have some divine significance. Direct from the Big Guy up there. He’s called God and has many other names. Let’s just go with Infinite Power. Isn’t that what one feels when reaching out in faith? Letting go of your worries and trusting that someone has your back.
Like a silent, trustworthy partner who won’t let you slip and might even clean up your mess.
That’s not a pretty picture. Sorry…
But we all hope and pray that the Infinite Power is nothing like that. And all our flaws and misdeeds will be swept away with noble grace and a gentle pat on the back.
Don’t worry. Go ahead and mess up again.
Not that we need any encouragement for that. The ‘mess up’ switch is already embedded in our brains. And when life doesn’t seem to be going our way because of the messes around us, we tend to resort to looking for something bigger and better.
When will things get better? Will I get what I want? How is it going to happen?
Might take a few days to loosen up. OUCH!
I’m a big sign searcher. I won’t look for lost objects, but signs will get me going. And it’s not just events or happenings, but tiny things that many won’t even think of.
I have a thing for numbers. And their sequences. Ever heard of angel numbers?
That’s what I see. On clocks and watches, license plate numbers, and even on bills and receipts. I’ve been seeing ‘1111’ ever since I can remember. And ‘444’ and ‘777’.
These numbers act as guides and have their own unique meanings and significance. It’s equivalent to a guardian angel looking out for you.
An acknowledgement of your thoughts and feelings, a divine message from the Universe.
It depends on you how you decipher it and relate it to your own life and its instances.
Yeah sure! Make fun of me. You know what? I even see ‘911’. So there!
And how about small things like a random phone call or an unexpected email. Even if it doesn’t amount to anything in the present, I might take this as a sign of something better in the future. I once got a rejection email for a novel manuscript I had submitted. Let me tell you, I was over the moon.
No, I’m not crazy. I have my reasons.
First, I wasn’t expecting a reply.
Second, this felt like the acceptance and acknowledgement of me sharing my hard work.
Third, it gave me the feeling that the Universe had set the ball rolling for my novel and its publication journey.
Wow! That’s mighty nice of you.
I am high. But on optimism and the hope of grander prospects.
Signs for me are always good. Never bad. That’s my personal interpretation. And it gives me hope to look for more and find meaning in the life I am leading.
Strong bursts of emotions have also been signs for me.
I’ve been through rough times like so many of you. And sometimes a good cry or a loud outburst relieves the pressure that’s been building up. And often during such moments, I’ve reached out to the Infinite Power and asked for a tiny ray of hope or maybe a small sign that will make me not give up and succumb to negativity.
You’ve been there too.
Remember, the abundant despair and the unrelenting tears that threaten to drown you. And the screams stopping short of your mouth, burning your insides, tearing apart your composure. You just want that last straw of courage to hold on to.
WHOA! That’s raw emotion. A tad bit scary…
Prayers never go in vain. And sure enough, there has always been a small token of my devotion presented to me. It could be a snippet of good news, an unexpected turn of events, or an uplifting conversation that changed my downward spiraling thinking.
Or maybe me just taking stock of the situation and changing my viewing angle. The mind will listen if you speak to it sincerely.
These may seem like small things, but their occurrences at the time were very much needed. An interlude to a monotonous movie. A powerful potion to break the evil spell of self-misery.
And finally, there are the signs that spring from within me. You have them too.
Let’s just give them space. Thanks.
Thoughts and feeling are signs too. You may call them intuition, reasoning, or better judgment.
But for me, they are signs that need to be recognized and acted upon. Have you ever been in a situation where everyone was telling you to go north but you went south? And there was no justified reason for it.
Some call that a gut feeling. I call that a sign that the mind, heart, and spirit conspire to create and shoot off into the brain space, and the signals don’t stop radiating till a decision is taken.
It’s a leap of faith, a shot in the dark, a gamble that could go either way.
That’s a little rude. But I get the message.
Signs are all around you and within you. Are they real? Or is it just a person’s perspective?
I’ve been seeing them for years and deducing only positive notions. It keeps me going.
What about you? Do you see signs? How about sharing some with me.
I’ll take this as a sign of positive belief and persistent determination.
May the Infinite Power always be with you.
Does your mouth need to be washed out with soap? Looking at the way people swear, all I can say is HELL!! What’s with all the Foul Language?!!
