What Form of Spiritual Messages Do You Receive?
Today I want to talk about the messages we receive from Spirit.
I know a lot of times people think that Spirit isn’t talking to them. (You may call it your Guide or Angels, we all have different words that we’re comfortable with.) Whatever terminology you use, you can feel very alone and isolated if you think you are cut off from them, that is far from the truth.
If you want to receive messages, all you have to do is ask.
It can be as simple as saying “I’m here, I’m listening, what do you want to tell me?” The first time I did this I was in my 20’s. I heard a knock on my wall so loud I almost came unglued.
Sometimes it’s just that simple. When you hear a knock and there’s no physical reason for it (neighbors in an apartment around you, a house that is settling) it’s usually Spirit trying to get your attention.
We’re so busy with our lives we don’t even realize that Spirit is trying to reach us.
What I found after that experience was that all I had to do is ask for a message and try to interact with them. One time, I was in the shower and I heard someone say “Kathy” incredibly loudly. I was alone and naked in the house. I should have been scared to death but I wasn’t. I opened the door and said, “Yes?” That’s when I realized that Spirit was now making an effort to speak to me because I was very genuine in wanting to receive messages.
What I have also found over the years is that we are given messages in different ways.
Sometimes it can be in the formation of a flock of birds. Or, it’s a license plate you see that has a number with a special meaning to you. It can be an encounter with an animal.
When I first moved into my house, I had a raven that kept making noise to tell me he was there. After two weeks, I finally acknowledged him and asked, “What message do you have for me?” He made the “Caw caw caw” that ravens make. I said, “Thank you.” Then he flew away.
I understood then that the raven was holding the space for me to come into that house. He had been waiting for me. After I acknowledged him, I didn’t see him very often but I do occasionally have ravens fly close by. Especially when I’m doing work around the outside of the house. Many times you don’t even think about something as mundane as birds flying around you. But they were trying to tell me how happy they were with the work I was doing.
The natural world can be a huge source for messages from Spirit.
Another example I have is that I’m dealing with a lot of spiders in my backyard. I had to figure out what the spiders were trying to tell me because there were more sizes and shapes of spiders than I ever realized lived in the state of Colorado.
I finally looked up the meaning of spiders. It turned out that it was a message I needed to hear. The spider symbolizes creativity, feminine energy, and balance. It’s also about integrating the past and the future so there is no shame. Realizing that this is who you are and you are in the right place at the right time.
For most of my life, I have been doing spiritual work behind the scenes but that isn’t what Spirit wants from me now. Spirit wants me out there sharing what I know because there is a great need for it now.
So I’m listening to Spirit and sharing my story even though it can be scary at times.
The main message I have for you today is that if you want to hear from Spirit, it’s as simple as asking. Spirit will respond and be very happy that you’re asking. I promise you that. They do want to communicate with us and help us through trying times. They are always with us we just have to listen.
