We do a lot of spiritual/intuitive work on an unconscious level, especially when we’re sleeping. When we sleep, we are very open to hearing messages from our Guardian Angels. Our “Guys” (a pet name Susie used and now I use) want to be able to communicate with us while we’re conscious, too.
I’m reminded of two stories friends have shared with me. One friend really struggled with her spouse’s hurtful decisions throughout their long marriage. They had gone the usual routes to save their marriage, however, her husband’s damaging choices continued. She prayed to God daily (hourly?!). One night she woke, sat straight up in bed and had an epiphany. She had one single thought echoing in her mind. My friend, who is not so much spiritual as she is deeply religious, listened. She KNEW what she heard was true, as it deeply resonated with her. She felt like it was the answer to her prayers. She and her husband divorced and she found (and later married) her true soul mate.
The other friend had lost her beloved mother. She was grieving and wanted to know if her mom was still around her. She asked for a very specific physical sign; she wanted to see a bumblebee. Not a problem in the summer, but this was February, in North Dakota. Low and behold, one frosty morning she opened her bathroom window and a bumblebee flew in. I kid you not. True story.
The signs may come as a single event, recurring numbers, songs or even names. There’s really no limit to what can be taken as a sign. My first numerical sign was the number three. I was seeing threes EVERYWHERE at random times and odd ways. I’d see an infomercial whose phone number would contain 333. I’d glance at a highway marker – 333. My odometer would show 333 or my fuel economy would be 33.3. License plates showed me 333 and I’d often wake; you guessed it, at 3:33.
At the time, this spiritual stuff was new to me. I didn’t know these were signs of communication; I just thought it was really odd. Then the repetitive songs started. The first song I remember repeatedly hearing was U2’s, “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.” I was single at the time and after I caught on I would groan, roll my eyes and say, “Real funny, Guys! Duh!”
Later, a new song replaced U2’s. It was “The Last Worthless Evening” by Don Henley. I’d giggle as I’d figured out the message behind the number three. It meant, I hoped, The One (as in, “He’s The One”) was finally returning to me.
Are you ready to know the correlation between the signs? It’s a doozey!! Ahem. Quiet please! The man who re-entered my life and became my One, has a beautiful first name that literally means, “State of being threefold; three closely related persons or things; Father, Son and Holy Spirit as three persons.” Blink. Blink. BLINK.
Admittedly, that one was a showstopper for me. Prior to that, my logical and highly analytical mind was really slow on the uptake. Sure, I’d ask for signs. I’d ask to hear a particular song and then when I’d hear it, I’d ask for further proof. If I received additional proof, I’d ask for even MORE proof! Jeez! Yes, I was one of ‘those.’ I tested my Guys patience to the point of their exhaustion (and that takes a LOT as they have infinite patience!). At one point, My Guys became so perplexed with my constant neediness they said, “Do you think all we have to do is send you signs?!”
Keep in mind I didn’t always see the signs I’d asked for, but that was an answer as well. Eventually I learned to say, “If this is going to happen, show me xxx. If it isn’t, show me xxx.” And then I’d try really hard to shut my telepathic trap and be satisfied with the response.
The lesson for me was to learn to trust in what I couldn’t physically see, touch, feel, smell or hear. I don’t know why this concept was so difficult other than I was highly analytical at the time. I was well into my Reiki training in which Susie had taught us you couldn’t see, smell, hear, touch or feel air, but you knew it existed.
Through the years I’ve had fun looking up the meaning of numbers I repeatedly see (‘Angel Numbers’ by Doreen Virtue). I smile at how appropriate their translations are. It’s a fun, playful way to open the communication channels with your Guys. Try it! I have it on good authority They get REALLY excited when a new communication channel is established.
