The spirit world is alive and buzzing around us whether we’re aware of it, skeptical, tuned in, or strongly opposed to the thought of life beyond the physical world. Spirit is here, there, and everywhere, it is the ether – the space between particles; the glue that shapes the physical form, the breath of life that sustains our biorhythms. It is constantly communicating with us, in fact it sustains us, and it also brings us messages from beyond.
Many messages of love, comfort, support, or warning pass through us daily, yet most of them go unnoticed. One reason for this is that in our modern materialistic world we have lost touch with nature, spirit, and soul. In the west we are no longer raised to tune into our inner awareness, nor are we educated in the ways of awaking, growing, and nurturing our intuition. Most of us aren’t even exactly sure what intuition is! It is an inner sense we all possess that acts as a bridge between the physical and other realms, i.e, the astral plane, the ethereal plane, the heavens, or by whatever name we wish to call life beyond, this bridge leads us to the world of angels. Our intuition, our inner sense, this bridge we must learn to cross is our birthright; it is our soul.
Though our inner guide (our intuition, our soul) may be dulled down, faint, or asleep we can learn to awaken and develop it. With daily practice we can open up to this self awareness, which will slowly but surely bring us to the understanding that the language of creation is not a language of words, that rather it is subtle in nature. It comes in a whisper, a symbol, a feeling, an image, a song… and it manifests in the present. Understanding this is something we will learn by experience, trial, and error.
Paying attention to our environment and making the conscious effort to notice life unfold around us as we go about our day helps us tune into these messages. The present is where magic happens, but if our present is a place of chaos, the angels won’t be heard. So keeping our minds still and free of mental chatter is a vital ingredient.
To share from one of my personal epiphanies here is a story…
I started seeing feathers last summer, they appeared before me everywhere I walked, right in front of my feet, I’d never noticed them before and I had walked up and down the same streets for years.
That same summer I had started questioning my purpose and the new direction I wanted to take in life. I became open, not coincidentally, to the spirit realm. When I looked into the meaning of feathers I found several articles that said seeing feathers on our path is one way angels communicate with us. So I decided to pay attention to the thoughts that were crossing my mind at the time I’d spot a feather. They were generally thoughts of what to do next; what my next step should be, what direction I should take, etc. Seeing the feather was a confirmation that I was on the right track.
I then began paying attention to any new thoughts that popped into my awareness immediately after spotting a feather, I also made a conscious effort to notice the feelings that came over me at the time of finding it. I noticed that the messages varied slightly so I gave myself permission to trust and further explore this ever evolving phenomenon, allowing my imagination and intuition to guide me through the ever growing maze of thoughts and feelings that got louder and louder as I continued following them.
Generally, the thoughts ranged from ‘that was a good idea’, ‘your on the right track’, ‘don’t worry’, and ‘trust’. With each thought there always came the feeling of calm and relief, as well as this intense sense of knowing that everything was going to be alright. Allowing this experience to play out opened the door to conversations with a buzzing world of thoughts and feeling that were not my own, but existed within my inner world. The more I allowed myself to trust and run with my intuition, the more I learned to understand this new language; the language of the angels. I am now fully aware that they are my constant companions.
Angels are everywhere and in everything, their voices blow in the wind; their force directs and guides our every action, whether or not we are aware of their influence.
So, if you start seeing feathers pay attention to your thoughts, if a song repeats everywhere you go listen to the words, if the same numbers pop up in your line of vision look into their significance. Pay attention to your environment in general, what do you spot? what stands out? Feathers, shiny new pennies, numbers… There are many ways in which the angels may be trying to communicate with us, look for patterns, ask for signs, and trust. Be open to how the answers may manifest, they will most likely reveal themselves in unexpected ways.
And finally, always follow your heart and trust in the guidance of your higher self; your soul. Allow your heavenly guardians and the spirit world to support you on your journey, allow them to help you open up to your inner world.
With Love & Light,
