Shared Messages from the Universe

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.
This always makes me smile.

Imagination changes everything...for me this is true deep within my soul.

According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary:
  1. the act or power of forming a mental image of something not present to the senses or never before wholly perceived in reality
  2. creative ability
  3. a creation of the mind
We all have an imagination. I believe that it is one of our greatest superpowers as humans.

Unfortunately, I also believe that most people don't ever make the things that they have created with their imagination a reality. And that, my friends, is sad.

I'll admit that I dabble in most things creative and honestly will try anything once, whether the results are good or not; if it is art related I have or will attempt it. I find so much pleasure in stretching my imagination.

This reminds me...the next time that you are getting rid of something: yes that old dresser, those old books, the cards that you received during the holidays, those old license plates, egg cartons, that old roll of wallpaper, leftover paint, old 35mm slides, old film, etc... Use your imagination! What could you create with them?

And, please if you don't have the time or the desire, please seek out and give the items to someone that would make something else out of them. Before you add them to a landfill by throwing them away, do me a favor and:
  1. ask an artist if they could use the items,
  2. give them to an art teacher at your local school,
  3. a scout group,
  4. a church youth group,
  5. a nonprofit...
Even better, deliver the items and offer to volunteer your time to help play, create and use your imagination with whomever you share the items with - you will forever be changed. Trust me, it will be amazing to see how many different things get created out of the same objects...all because of imagination.

Imagination changes will you use yours today?

Have you noticed any messages from the universe?

Share your message by joining my flickr group by the same name: Shared Messages from the Universe and post or link your photos. Share those written messages that you walk by most of the time. Those message that all of sudden you notice, you read, you react and they move you forward.

I'd love to see the messages that have inspired you!

  1. I enjoyed your post. As a first grade teacher and hopeless packrat, I am forever re-inventing "junk". The downside....I have a 3 car garage that I can barely squeeze one tiny car into.
