Yes, signs are all around us. It's our job to be aware of those signs and then act on those signs. My computer went on the fritz for a couple of days. I have to say I handled it pretty well considering I'm a writer and am on the computer for a good portion of the day. One of my biggest lessons is/was to keep my emotions in check when things aren't going well. I remained calm. I had my phone to look up computer repair. I'm a great problem solver, plus if I don't have my computer I'm not writing my book. I called a computer guy in Deltona and took my laptop to him. He said this, that and the other thing, so I decided to go see about a new computer at Best Buy -- checkout my options. Just three years had went by since my last purchase -- screens were smaller and pricier. I went back to the man in Deltona. By the time I got back there, he had gotten three other computers to repair. There's my sign. Keep looking. I found another person in DeLand and when I got there, I found that he had been in the student program in Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp years ago, something we had in common. What are the chances of that? It made it easy to make the decision. I was in the right place. In the midst of all of this, one of my regular animal totems, the sandhill crane, appeared to me in at least four places on my journey. I loved it. I knew the universe was there with me on my side, getting me through what I thought to be a major struggle. These are times made for spiritual growth to occur or not. How we react to situations are crucial. I kept mostly calm and got my computer back after two full days without. It had been a long, hard two days, There's was a bit of struggle still this morning with the computer. It was a gentle reminder of how and where I need to spend my time. This is the first I have taken the time to write. I still don't have Microsoft Word back up and guess what? It's not the end of the world. I needed a break, obviously.
Some signs may not be so easy to recognize, or maybe you just don't know where to find these signs. Animals are signs. When you see an animal, take note of it and look it up later. Perhaps, an owl has crossed your path. Search owl animal totem and read a few of the results. Owl animal totem is about seeing things that others do not. It is also about wisdom, and/or deception, either with others or of self. Very powerful information. Once you become accustomed to the awareness of animals around you and their meanings, start taking note of what you were thinking about when you saw that animal. See how it fits into your life. It could be a sign. This way of thinking brings you more into the universe as a whole. Everything is connected. Blessings!
