I’m not sure how you feel about the Universe and how things work in the world, but does the Universe speak to you?
I can’t tell you if the ‘Universe’ stands alone or if ‘God’ created the ‘Universe’ and runs the show. That’s so far above my pay-grade that it amounts to a pile of cash bigger than Mount Everest.
What I can say is this.
We live and breathe every day in a world that is ganging up on us and trying to get our attention. The question is, are you listening?
While there are many ways people seek to receive messages of guidance as we make life decisions, my favorite has always been events the occur in triplicate. If something happens three times, I pay attention.
Call me hard-headed, distracted, or set in my ways, but life has taught me that wisdom tends to come in whispers – usually when our thoughts are screaming in our head and drowning out our dreams.
Now, let me be clear…
A friend calling three times to go out on the town doesn’t count in my book.
Snoozing your alarm clock three times isn’t a message from the Universe that you should sleep in more.
The grocery store being out of your favorite chips three times is not a sign that you should go on a diet.
All that is what they call the “stuff that happens while you’re alive.”
So what counts?
If I were to describe messages that resonate with me, it would be…
1) Seemingly random situations and people and happen in quick succession or at the same time.
2) They are different in their approach and appearance, yet each delivers a similar message. At first, it may seem disconnected, but in relation to the other messages, you begin to notice
3) The message you receive is likely something that has been on your mind, keeping you awake a night, and speaks to you. Even though you may not immediately recognize its impact, you find yourself slightly redirected in your search for answers. Your path altered.
While this is undoubtedly only my description of how I know it when the Universe is ganging up on me, I have learned to allow space for a message to arrive. Whether I realize the impact or not, I have also learned that it always motivates my decisions, choices, and future actions. In other words, things change with little effort.
My journey this summer is about breaking from the status quo, exploring the possibilities of life, and going with the flow as we seek a new home, lifestyle, and attitude. I don’t know what journey you are on, but I bet the Universe is ganging up on your right now if you’ll only pay attention.
