Waiting for a Sign?
Spiritual matters are not what we think they are. At times, we may ask for guidance from a spirit or guide and wait patiently for an answer. In the meantime, life here must go on. People spend too much time waiting for a “sign” to appear to them in bright lights or over a loudspeaker before they make a change in their life. What if the sign appears and you miss it? What if the world of spirits and the universe and God want you to find the confidence to go forward with your decision without the outward sign that you seek? What if the “sign” is really not what motivates you to change, but instead is the feeling you get when you go forward.
I’m not saying that people don’t always get signs. Signs from our loved ones in Spirit give us comfort and love and let us know they are with us. In the case of moving forward, signs can be an outward matter that we do not see. Sometimes it is your perspective that is blocking you. If you are sad or depressed, you may get signs everywhere and still say, “I never get signs.” You don’t feel it. On the other hand, if you are always in contact with Spirit and constantly feel their presence, then everything may seem like a sign to you.
My point is this, if you believe in the spirit world, you know that they are always guiding you. It may not feel like it at times, but they are there looking farther ahead than you could imagine. How many times did something happen in a way that you questioned and understood later that it was the best way for things to happen?
Signs are everywhere. If you are of the mindset that you have to wait until you get a sign to move forward or progress in life, then why not choose believe that you should move ahead knowing your spirits are with you during the journey? If you are not on your path, Spirit will find a way to slow you down or turn you down a different path. Being in tune with Spirit doesn’t mean letting them live your life for you, it means trusting the path and enjoying the journey.
