Big Life Questions & Divination via Synchronicity
When we have one of those BIG LIFE QUESTIONS, it helps to begin collecting information gleaned from more than one source.
I’d think that many of us would do that. We may start by asking our friends their opinions, perhaps even turn to a parent or someone else (hopefully older and wiser) that we trust to see what they think about our plans or decisions. All of that is fine, and well and good.
But what if we want to know if that big decision that we’re about to make is in alignment with our soul’s purpose? And more importantly for the good of all concerned. What if we wanted to seek answers from (waht could be called) a higher authority? What if we wanted to ask our higher self or seek the wisdom of same universal intelligence that causes the stars to come out at night and the sun to rise in the morning? Well, you get the idea, right?
I wish I would have known 15 years ago what I know now; but at the time I did the best I could. I turned to several psychics for readings. And I also asked for some intuitive impressions from my fellow psychic development classmates at the time. This decision was going to affect not only my own life, but the life of my youngest daughter. I didn’t know any other way to seek higher guidance at the time in my life. And so I did the only thing I knew how to do.
Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with turning to psychics. In fact, it
was quite validating because I kept getting the same answer–I trusted (with
fingers crossed–so, mostly trusted) the guidance I received, applied
the information, and made the decision. I’m pretty certain, looking back well
over 15 years now, that it was the right one. But getting a psychic reading is only one form of divination–BIG DECISIONS really deserve more of our own personal intuitive involvement.
Synchronicity is a term originally created by Carl Jung to describe the meaningful coincidences that occur in one’s life and this is an awesome source of spiritual guidance–highly underestimated.
When we toss out a question to the universe by simply asking it telepathically
and really (with a deep heartfelt emotion) want that answer; it does
come. We just have to remember not to be picky about how the answer is
given and be awake and aware enough to recognize it in it’s many forms.
I’m having to giggle here for a moment remembering something from earlier today–xcuse me! I’ll let you in on it… I don’t think my sister will mind. She called me from work to ask my opinion about a letter that she was writing to someone. Obviously, she had some mis-givings or doubt about it in the first place or she wouldn’t have asked my opinion. (She’s pretty self-assured most of the time.) Anyway, she starts reading me the letter and then groans a bit and says, “Ouch! I did it again. I’ve been doing that allot for the past few hours!” I asked her what she was talking about. She replied, “I keep biting my tongue!” As she began to read me the letter, I could see the connection (even if she didn’t). I pointed it out–is the universe maybe trying to tell you to bite your tongue (an expression meaning: to keep quiet) about this letter? After she decided not to send the letter, we talked a while longer. She said that she realized after she decided not to send the letter, she’d quit biting her own tongue when she talked. In this case, the universe wouldn’t have to send her repeating messages–she got it the first time (with my help pointing out the obvious). Usually, we look for repeating events or circumstances when using synchronicity as a divination tool however.
Anyway, I digress…. back to that BIG LIFE DECISION from 15 years ago. It would have given me more comfort if I’d also worked with some other divination tools on my own and correlated those with the psychic readings that I received. Other divination tools that I could have used myself (had I known about them at the time) such as:
- Visions or messages received during our MEDITATION
- Observing dreams; asking for a dream insight
- Observing synchronicities; repeating patterns in life (see movie Celestine Prophecies)
- I-Ching coins or sticks; you know, the hexagram from The Book of Change
- Tarot or Angel Cards
… things like that. Had I consulted some additional forms of divination on my own, I then would have been tuning into my own intuition and correlating that with the psychic readings which would have been more validating and comforting.
We usually have time to consult various other divination tools and observe sychronistic messages when we’re making big life decisions; we usually don’t make those kinds of decisions overnight anyway. It helps to journal these things; seeing it all in black and white (or whatever color font or pen you use 🙂 can correlate all the information quite nicely for you.
Its also much more empowering when we consult our own personal divination
ability. That’s not to say that receiving a psychic reading from someone
else is dis-empowering; it’s just one added tool in the tool
Help is available; we just have to be wise enough and discerning enough to turn to it, recognize it, and then the MOST IMPORTANT PART–apply it. What good is the information we receive if we don’t apply it? (You’d be surprised by how many people don’t–based on my own experience as a psychic advisor.)
Anyway, this could end up being a whole book… but its all I have time for today. I know this isn’t fully inclusive and probably pretty incomplete; I wrote this in a bit of a rush. However, I hope this post has given someone who really needs it right now, enough food for thought if they’re on the threshhold of making a big life decision! Don’t underestimate synchronistic occurances and messages.
