Shared Messages from the Universe - Live in the Moment

It is my belief that messages from the universe speak to me and remind me of something that is inside of me. When I first see them, I often don't even know what is really being advertised. Instead, the message conjures emotions or thoughts relating to something that is going on within me; in my heart, in my mind, in my soul. I see them on billboards, in magazines, store windows, church plaques...everywhere.

I secretly call them soul whispers.

The messages are all around us


On the subway after a particularly long day...this was above my head.  

See, I didn't notice it, I was (in zombie mode) totally focused on getting home, and not paying attention to the world around me.

This is often a sign that I need a break.

 I was, however, playing with the camera on my phone. 
I captured this and laughed out loud.
And, thought to myself, 
yes, universe, 
my apologies for being a zombie, 
thanks for slapping me in the face.
I smiled as I walked home from my stop.

See, I really do believe that the universe sends us messages, the messages with the words are easier to see, at least for me to see, most of the time.  I am getting better at noticing the non-word messages (I'm still seeing feathers everywhere and the occasional dragonfly). 

Live in the Moment

be present, 
fully embrace where you are,
pause once in a while and truly - be...

turn off the planning mind, 
the worry about everything else thoughts, 
the where do I want to live ideas,
what do I want to be when I grow up dreams, 
and just enjoy where I am.

This is my plan during the next 2 weeks. 
This also requires a pause from here...
I am going to pause from blogging.

I, instead, am going to pick my camera up a little more, paint more, sketch, create, nap, snuggle with cats, work the day job, finish a post for a friends class, write more, work on my e-e-course, I am just going to be without the pull of having to blog.

So, I'll be back at the end of the month to link up with Urban Muser's monthly self-portrait prompt Perspective (9/28), Louise Gale's Creative Color Challenge, and then on the 1st for Kat Sloma's photo heart connection...

Shared Message of the Universe will return on 10/8, I know it seems so far away...meanwhile scroll back through and check-out my past Monday posts for the messages that have touched my heart.

Oh, and do me a favor, 
pause every one in a while, notice the wind that blows, 
the crickets at night, the smile on your loved one's face, 
nap, embrace where you are and...

Live in the Moment.


  1. I look forward to reading your blog again when you return next month. In the meantime, I intend to "Live in the Moment" with you!
