Within us. Just in case though there’s many ways to confirm your thoughts and decisions. I love the whimsical Magic 8 Ball. I asked it if I should write this blog and the answer: ‘Without a Doubt.’
Most of us have had a Magic 8 Ball at one time or another. It came back into my life a couple of years ago.
Backstory: I was working Two Views Message Service with my daughter at Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp. The reverend on duty, now on the higher side of life, was the last to receive a Spirit Greeting. I couldn’t believe it when I saw a Magic 8 Ball around him. I shared. Later, he said I knew you were the real deal when you said that. For years, he kept one on his porch for those who waited for readings.
Other ways to confirm your thoughts include looking for the signs and synchronicities, meditation and then there’s automatic writing. With the latter, it is the only time I tell people to sit in meditation. Have a piece of paper and writing utensil nearby. Mediate on the question. After a few moments, come out of the meditation and start writing. Keep writing until your left brain interferes. Wait a few minutes and then read what you wrote.
Here's a good one: Sleep on it. Have you ever gotten up from a good night sleep and just known the answer to something. Ask that the question be answered while you sleep and that you will know the correct course of action when you awaken.
Weighing in on all the facts will assist in making the decision. Once you make it, go. Don’t stop until you reach the projected outcome. Keep the vision.
Or maybe you just shake that Magic 8 Ball and go with that. When you come to my office, you will be greeted by the Magic 8 Ball on the porch, or at least until someone else needs it.
On a side note, I gave a housewarming gift to the person who now resides in the house of the man on the higher side of life. You guessed it, a Magic 8 Ball. The owner loved the story behind the gift and noted that the previous owner’s birthday was just two days away. I wonder if she’ll keep it on the porch. Perhaps, her answers await.
