Universal Winks: Divine Guidance

Do you often experience synchronicity in your life? Maybe you think of someone and then they call, or the song you were singing in your mind begins to play on the stereo. I experience this awesomeness on a daily basis. As a Spirit Junkie, I’ve made it my mission to release the blocks to the energetic support around me. The more I believe in divine guidance the more miracles I experience.

A super groovy way I receive guidance is through repeating numbers. For years I’ve witnessed 1111 show up in many unique ways, such as on computer screens, digital clocks, addresses, etc. Intuitively I see these moments as sweet winks from the Universe, reminding me that I am being guided. I am not alone in this philosophy. Many other Spirit Junkies believe that when you frequently see 1111 youíre receiving a message to recalibrate your consciousness and intuition.

Itís super neat to receive these messages but itís far cooler to respond to them. Rather than just chalk up these moments to a groovy coincidence Iíve chosen to witness the guidance and respond. Each day when I have an encounter with 1111, I recite a prayer. I say out loud to my internal guide (aka my ~ing), “Thank you for your message. I am present to your guidance. Show me what you got.” I could easily breeze past these moments of divine guidance, but I choose to use them as spiritual cues to tune in and connect to the energy around me. When Iím in tune and connected, I expect miracles.

Divine guidance is available to you, too. All the time, in fact! The first step is to stop questioning the synchronicity in your life. When you question it you weaken the power in the moment. Rather than flip out about the “coincidence,” choose to honor the miracle. Pay attention to moments of synchronicity.

I do believe in this synchronicity but the loud and authoritative inner dialogue I dont buy.

2:34AM PST on Dec 21, 2011

I have a vital livng relationship with my Higher Power. It seems he delights in giving me whatever I want. I'm careful to remind my HP that I want him to choose because he has proven he loves me more than I love myself. He wants better things for me than I want for myself. He can see so much more than I can see as a human being.

"Don't give me what I ask for unless you deem it best for me."

There was a saying among the Greeks that he whom the gods would destroy, they answer his prayers. I ask that my HP to censor my prayers.

I have learned to be still and listen. Ask a queston and wait for an answer, often with a full lecture explaining to me concepts that I never imagined.

Always my attention is on him. It's as if you go shopping or exercising or just for a scenic walk together with a lover. You may be comparing prices, or looking for wildlife or even composing a poem but you're always aware your lover is by your side.

That's the way it is with me and my Higher Power.....always gentle on my mind.

And the miracles flow.

OOPS ... in my rush to comment, yet another typo.

Make that world, not wowrld. Sorry 'bout that.

In our wowrld of fast-tracking and multi-tasking, who has time for a few peaceful moments of thought in a quiet place, right?

Over time and with age comes a gradual slowdown, like it or not, allowing you to regain your openness and awareness of all the gifts around you ... which have always been there, but gone unnoticed until now. A wonderful discovery at any age.
