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,
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
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.
