March 4, 2020-
In the newspaper, this morning, my horoscope was a bit on the snarky side: “You have been known to take the smallest hint as a sign from the Universe”.
Yes, and no. Each day, there are hundreds of small hints that come the way of any one of us. As I laid down for an after-breakfast nap, something I have customarily done during the Fast, these past 39 years, a magnet button fell off the refrigerator, hitting the floor. The button’s message: “Follow your dreams”. I re-attached the button to its magnet, and resumed my rest.
The message may, or may not, have been an affirmation. I follow my inner promptings, regardless, after always bouncing them off the reality around me and subtle messages from my spirit guides. Reality can change, from one day to the next, so I am prone to a fair degree of flexibility-as is most anyone else, I’d imagine.
I have met people who are so over-tethered to the sights and sounds around them, that every billboard, bumper sticker and expression on someone’s face is seen as intended just for them. There are times when the connection between self and universe is indeed very intense, and there are times when one is left to own judgment.
I am grateful to items like horoscopes, tarot cards and sightings of heart-shaped objects, for generally offering comfort and affirmation. May they ever be so. I am also supremely grateful for having been given the power of discernment.
