The Different Levels of Communication through Omens

Standard

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.

Namaste.

Love Can Be Exhausted

Standard

“The Mysterious Girl” by Giuseppe Milo

Love is often described as something that is eternal, something that we cannot touch and exists in everything. When in love, it seems as if the warm and glorious feeling will last forever, as if it will never and cannot possibly be replicated. Often, family love is described as unconditional. None of these things are always true. Love can be exhausted, meaning love can be lost, love can calcify and become hard hatred, until it becomes emptiness.

Can you stop loving someone? Yes, of course. Can you stop loving a family member? Yes. Family love, regardless of culture, is the type of love that is deemed permanent and unconditional. Not all families are the same and not all families are as loving. Abuse, whether physical, sexual, verbal, psychological, thins down the love of a family member. What then happens is hate replaces that love.

Many that experience a negative family life grow to have hatred against family members, and when they express their sentiments they are reprimanded by friends or other family members. The conversation may go something like this, “I hate my father.” and someone responds, “No, don’t hate your father, at the end of the day, he is your father.” These types of responses cause much harm to the person who is going through difficult times, difficult emotions, and does not do anything but propagate a myth about love. Telling someone not to feel something towards an abusive family member causes the person to feel guilty, worthless, evil, harmful, wrong, and confused. Whenever encountering this type of situation, be mindful of your responses, be compassionate before anything else, and listen. Familial love is not always permanent.

What I am saying is that it is okay to feel hate against those who have hurt, or continue to hurt you, regardless of who they may be. But keep in mind that to feel hate is different from acting out of hate. To feel hate is painful. To feel angry is frustrating, almost like you are stuck, or going around in circles. Whether the relationship is romantic or familial, feeling hatred for this loved one is okay.

Hatred and love go hand in hand; they are two sides of the same coin, they are yin and yang. Ying_yang_signYou cannot have hate without love, and vice versa. Think of hatred overcoming your heart and how it feels, how it suffocates that happiness, the light, and the good out of you. Many let this hatred become a permanent part of them. Some women allow their hatred of one man become a hatred for all men and some men allow their hatred for one woman become hatred for all women. Though hatred provides feelings of power and control, those moments of focus and power are based on a faulty and dark place that will never provide what you really need and want. This is because hatred attracts hatred, it attracts negativity, it attracts difficulty. So, life will never seem bright, love will seem a fantasy, and connections will be superficial.

Life is cyclical. Everything is. Here is an example of the love to hate process:

  1. Love
  2. Hurt by significant other, friend, or family member.
  3. Feeling pain, sadness, depression, confusion, anger.
  4. Love turns to hate.
  5. Hatred for the other person, for the world, for the self.
  6. Anger. Anger towards self, towards others.
  7. Emptiness.
  8. Feeling disconnected.
  9. Finding something new.
  10. Growing a new love.

Many people make it to number 8, feeling disconnected from the world, feeling alone. Some stay at number 5 and are in a constant state of hate. It is hard moving to number 9, because it is here where you have finally let go of the pain and anger, and it is here where you have found something new. 9 is where you find something new, not necessarily a new relationship, but something that fulfills you, something that gives you happiness and self-love. Number 10 takes dedication, dedication to this new thing, new way of looking at life. Number 10 is the completion, the end of a cycle, and a new beginning.

Life is really just a constant collision of energy, from atoms against atoms, to people colliding into each other, life is a beautiful chaos. Souls mingle and twist into each other. Souls, from one life to the next, find and lose each other. Sometimes we meet each other only to teach each other, or to hurt each other, or to balance the scale of karma, or to love each other. Whether a family member who causes pain or a partner who becomes a stranger, sometimes life pushes us apart. The only thing constant is change.

Sex as Something More than Sex

Standard

Sex is how humanity has lasted for thousands and thousands of years. Sex is how one expresses love for another. Sex can also be just another sport. Aside from these three functions of sex, there is one more. Sex can function as a bridge to the spiritual world regardless if you are alone are in a relationship. Meaning that sex can help awaken the consciousness to deeper realities and it can connect souls not only on a physical level but a spiritual level too.

For ages religions have condemned sex and repressed sexuality. Why that is is a very hefty topic, filled with arguments and insults, and contradictions. I don’t consider sex as a sin and nothing in this blog will condemn the different aspects of sexuality. There are, however, sexual perversions and that is not what this blog is about. Sex is like everything else in the world; it has a positive side and a negative side. One could say a side of light and a side of darkness. Finding spirituality, comfort, and knowledge in sex is about finding harmony in it. It is about finding balance between the carnal pleasures that sex provides and the wisdom it can bestow.

You cannot remove the sex from the pleasure you extract from it, nor should you do so. It is when sex becomes only about pleasure that it becomes base and not beneficial. Again, a balance needs to be found in order for life to be fulfilling, for sex to feel good and right. This means that it is okay to have sex simply to enjoy its pleasures. ( Personally, I believe that if sex is to be part of a spiritual practice then it should be practiced only with a partner you love or alone. But everyone does as they see fit and I am no judge. In another post I will explain my idea further.) When you go into sex with only the intention of receiving pleasure your consciousness, in other words your mind, is not open to the possibility of finding new knowledge. It all begins with the mind. Revolutionizing sex in your life starts with your perceptions of it.

So, how can sex be something more? And what more can it be? You keep mentioning knowledge but what knowledge is there to be gained? The kind of knowledge and wisdom one can gain through practicing sex as something more than carnal needs is spiritual or metaphysical. It relates to what is beyond technical knowledge, which eventually becomes out dated, and to the big questions of life. Matters of the soul and life can be understood and unraveled through sex. How? Here is when sex starts to become something more. Through a meditative state that is amplified by the intensity of sex, or by the raised sexual energy, certain thoughts begin to enter the mind. When you think of sex as being something more than sex, when you think of it as being more significant than the moment of orgasm, is when it does become something more; that is when your mind begins to bloom and your senses begin to perceive more. Think of it as being a way to connect, to connect to the universe, to your partner, to higher consciousness, and so on. After changing the way you think of sex, either with your partner or with yourself (masturbation), coincidences happen outside of the bedroom that guide you to whatever answer you seek. And so, in this way, you get more out of sex than just a momentary bliss. This happens because the mind affects our reality, our world, and our energies become stronger and attract whatever is needed to achieve the set goal or to answer the posed question. This is also where the boundary between regular sex and sacred sex begins to vanish. Sacred sex is about feeling the motions of the universe within you as you move. It is about feeling the connection between yourself and the world, yourself and your partner, and yourself and divinity.

Love is a powerful force. When love is shared between a couple it creates beauty in the person’s life. Light and positivity surround the couple. It is this goodness that love brings that can be intensified during sex. Sex can connect souls, but only if that is the intention and if the awareness is there. In this way, sex can be more than a physical unifier. This is how a more profound bond can be built with your partner. Here you gain knowledge of each other, you get to know each other more, and you learn more about love.
