The Different Levels of Communication through Omens



When looking around your world and searching for divine signs, guidance, and messages, things are never just what they seem. The world is not flat, the universe is not flat; therefore, the world around us is not one sided. This is the beauty of seeing the world through a spiritual lens; it is being able to see the rainbow both as individual colors and as a united manifestation of various things (water, heat, light, color). So, whenever trying to decipher what feels like a message from the universe, whether you feel it is from angels, Gods, God, your higher self, spirit guides, be aware that there are different aspects to what is being presented to you.

Because communication between the different spheres of existence is difficult and even forbidden to a certain extent, symbols and signs are commonly employed. An omen is something that has prophetic weight, meaning that it signifies or shows what will be coming in the future. An omen can be anything from numbers to symbols, to animals, song lyrics catching your attention at a precise moment to make you think something, and so on. The great amount of variations that can be omens makes the deciphering of the message all the more difficult. But that does not mean it is not possible. Also, for someone who is only just becoming aware of the messages or omens, the communication is kept at a basic level.

Basic signs and omens are usually numbers and symbols. The symbols most commonly used because of their simplicity and universality are animals. If communication is first established through the use of animal symbols, then the representation of the omen will be inanimate; meaning that it could be a figurine, a drawing that calls to you and then you see other images of the same animal, and so on.

A more complex and advanced level of communication would be through omens as living animals. This is more difficult because then not only does it matter what animal it is but also what the animal is doing, how it is behaving, and how it makes you feel. Furthermore, on even a more complex level, on a level where telepathy now begins to be used, the animal omen is able to communicate on behalf of Spirit. For example, you are walking down the street and suddenly a black cat jumps out in front of you. Most would think black cats are negative omens, but in the moment you do not feel the cat is being aggressive or that it brings with it negativity. The cat hisses at you, makes eye contact, and you know it is communicating with you. Something inside you urges you to watch the cat, to hone in on it as much as your human capabilities allow you to. And then the cat does a strange gesture, quite humanistic in its movement; it moves its head as if beckoning you to follow it. And you do. This is the stuff of science fiction novels yet it is real. Communication like this is rare because of the fragility of the human mind, but it is one way the Universe relays messages.

The other basic signs are numbers. Repeating numbers is the most common. For example, seeing the same number everywhere, on license plates, shirts, billboards, and so on. You may like the number three. Why? I don’t know. Let’s just say you do. So, you go for a job interview and turns out the office is on the third floor. By the time you are done with the whole interview process it is three in the afternoon. What does this mean? It can mean that you are not alone, that your spirit guides are trying to comfort you, that they have led you to a safe place, and so on. It depends heavily on the associations you make with the number.

A more complex level of numerical communication is time. We tell time using four digits and if one number has various meanings, coupling those possibilities times four and the variations beneath each four, amounts to multiple interpretations. The exception to this would be 11:11, 12:12, and so on. When numbers are coupled their singular meanings are strengthened, meaning that what 11 normally means is amplified when it becomes 11 11. To read more about 11 11 go to sacredscribesangelnumbers. The author of that blog is Joanne Walmsley and her information, in my experience, is accurate and extremely useful. Her explanations are approachable and direct, making the whole process of learning how to interpret these types of messages less foreboding.

On top of the communication that happens when we look at our watches and become aware of the sun’s position in sky, there is another form of communication that also uses time, except it does so in a cosmic way. This is probably the most ominous yet most exciting form of synchronicity and divine communication there is. A simple example of this type of synchronicity/coincidence and communication is birthdays. Sharing the same birthday with someone is always surprising and joyful. A more complex form of communication through time is the amount of time lapsed between certain meaningful events, or the repetition of unrelated life events around the same time of year, and so on. Deciphering this type of communication has to be done case by case. But one brief example is this: You broke up with your partner in September and spend weeks without seeing him or her. Then you are in an on and off again relationship with them. January comes around and again you are in a relationship with them. But come September and you break up again. And the relationship feels inevitable, like no matter how hard you try, you can’t get away. Why does this keep happening? In this case it is because the universe is waiting for you to learn your lesson, for you to become aware of something, and it keeps repeating until the possibility of learning from this relationship is spent. And if you do not learn from this and move on, later on in life, the relationship will repeat itself somehow with someone else. This is a bit of a tangent, but this is also one of the principles of reincarnation.

Perhaps even less common than all but still on a basic level, colors are used to communicate. It really shouldn’t be so surprising as artists are the biggest voices in this communication medium. Artists use colors and at the subconscious level, there is some sort of communication, they are relaying something from within them to the world. But I digress, Spirit may use colors to communicate with you to provide comfort more than anything else. This type of omen is not so heavy on predictions. I think of this type of communication as gifts, when Spirit decides to give you gifts and wrap you in celestial love.




Energy through the Body and Alignment with the Higher Self


What is alignment with the Higher Self? What does it even mean?

Think of yourself as a temple; a temple lined with white columns, where your arms and legs are the columns, upholding the infinite and star shinning universe. Think of yourself as an obelisk with hieroglyphs on and all around your sides, glowing gold and white and whatever other colors you like. Think of yourself as a tower or a pillar where the foundations of this structure you embody are your feet. And your base, your foundations, your feet are planted firmly on the soft dirt of the Earth. And now, imagine that your feet glow with light. When your feet are healthy and you feel secure in every step you take it is because you are taking care of your foundations, you are planning and thinking about what you need to keep moving forward and upwards. In this way, you are aligned with your higher self.

Moving up in the structure that your Soul inhabits, this body that you use to perceive the world around you, are your legs. The support that your structure needs to maintain itself upright and reaching for the heavens. The support beams of your legs may not be so steady. Your legs may be weak. Your legs may be toned and muscular. Your legs may be more fat over muscle. In whatever state your legs are physically in, think of how you move about through the world. Not only the way you walk or run but how you support yourself physically and financially.  When you are aligned with your higher self, light and energy from the base of your body, of your structure, flows up your legs and further up. But when there is an energetic blockage, that energy is stopped, or it is lost, or it is redirected. So when there is a blockage of energy in your legs you might fall, trip, feel out of balance, buckle at the knees suddenly (if deprived of energy there). The legs depend on the core of your body and your mind/head to move and so depending on your mental state and how you feel (core/ego) about yourself, your walk is affected. When you are aligned with your higher self you will walk comfortably, unconsciously moving your muscles and feeling comfortable in those movements. Your shoes will feel like they fit you right and you will feel comfortable to run and jump or simply leave when necessary.

If there is a blockage anywhere in your body it is very common and normal. For women, during menstruation, certain energetic centers will close more and others will open more. For everybody, energy is constantly moving about throughout the body and thoughts affect is vibrancy and strength. When you have a cold or allergies certain energetic centers become weakened. Love opens up the heart center, the heart chakra, and that is when that warm glow envelops you. Just the same, pain can close the heart center, blocking love from entering your heart and soul or it can open the heart center and bleed more pain, making it agonizing for someone. When energy is blocked for long periods of time in the same area problems arise, both psychological and physical.

Continuing up the body, the pillar of flowing light and love that it is at its best, we reach the pelvic area. This area is one of the most beautiful and vital areas of the body. Here lies your sexuality, your sexual drive, your ability to create life, and one of your greatest pleasure centers. When you are aligned with your higher self this area is vibrant and you have sex. You have sex with your partner or you masturbate. You enjoy the pleasures of sexual activity, whether it is kissing, fantasizing, touching, or intercourse itself without regret or guilt. But when there is a blockage in this area you may feel the need to hide your sexuality or your sexual orientation. You may fear doing the wrong thing during sex. The sacral chakra, like everything else, is interconnected with the heart and mind chakras. And so, if your mind is troubled or focused on something else, then the energy flowing up and then back down to the sexual area may be blocked or disrupted, causing negative feelings to arise.

Then there is the middle of your body. The core of your body is where your ego rests. Your ego is where your concern for yourself is dominant. This is the place where you feel hungry. The core of your body is also where your wants are. It is the ego that wants that new cellphone or that new car. It is the ego that feels jealousy/envy. When you feel jealousy or when you really want something you do not need, it is because there is an abundance of energy given to the ego. The more you focus on satiating that jealousy or making yourself superior to others, the more energy the ego receives and the bigger it gets and the more it craves and the more you are inclined to feed it. It is a circle. And so, in the pillar of growing lights that is your body, when the core of your energy source is overfed, it glows brighter than the other energy centers/chakras. But when you are aligned with your higher self, the ego is calm and content and it receives and puts out energy. It is then that you feel satisfied. When I say that you feel satisfied I mean that you will feel you have everything you need and you will be content with that. You will also be able to see the things you had previously wanted and not feel a loss because you cannot or do not presently have them. And even though you may not be satisfied with your body, maybe you’re out of shape, or even if you are not satisfied with something you are working on, you will feel that your needs are met. And if you are struggling to make ends meet then you will feel calm in the face of the scarcity that threatens you. Energy is always in motion and even through the course of a day it can change, causing you to feel differently. But when you reach the level of balance I’ve just described to you, the energy tends to be more stable.

The heart chakra is where love circles. In the center of your chest is where you feel the love for your partner, your pet, your family, your friends, and for God or the Gods or the Goddess, and so on. As energy flows through your body, from the foundations that are your feet up to your heart, there is an exchange of energy between the energy centers/chakras. And so light moves through the turning energetic centers , going up from your feet illuminating your legs, and going through your sacral chakra up to your belly, to your heart, and then you feel love. Where the energy moves and when it moves varies from person to person. Some have blockages in certain areas and the energy that would normally pass through there bypasses it (the blockage). But when you are aligned with your higher self the heart if full of love, both for yourself and others. If you are in a relationship, the ideal state of the heart is loving yourself as much as you love your partner. How much you love your partner is great and incalculable and it is as much as you are capable of loving yourself. Though that may not be the case, an equal love between yourself and your partner, it is rare, the heart center is healthy when it emanates love regardless. When the heart center is out of balance and there is too much energy focused there, the person is always and constantly falling in love with everything and everyone. There is almost an attachment and neediness to the love that is felt. It is a strange mixture of a lack of energy and an overabundance of energy.

When you are aligned with your higher self you will be able to express yourself freely. You’ll be able to say what you want in a manner that is not selfish or offensive. But if there is an energetic blockage in your throat then you may not be able to say what you want how you want, you may be speechless more than you like. If you are of a silent disposition then the energy here is low and it does not shine as brightly as it can. Everyone is different and because one energy center is brighter and stronger than the others does not necessarily mean that the person is out of balance. If there is too much energy or an abundance of energy in the throat chakra, then you like to talk a lot and it really doesn’t matter about what. When both the ego/center/solar plexus chakra and the throat chakra have too much energy the two connect to create someone who likes to talk a lot about himself or herself.

The third eye, near the top of your human pillar of light and energy, is the one most people have with low energy or completely closed off. The higher self perceives what is physically and spiritual extant. When the third eye is filled with energy you are able to perceive what is beyond the physical. But when there is an overabundance of energy in the third eye chakra you might see ghosts and the physical reality collides with the spiritual reality to the point that they are difficult to distinguish.

The crown chakra is the top of your energetic structure. When energy flows from the base all the way up to the top and out through crown chakra enlightenment is achieved. With the circle of energy complete and established, allowing for the flow of energy, it finally beams out through the top of your head into the heavens. You become a beacon of light.
