Callous and crude as the title seems, it got your attention. To put it nicely, we humans are control freaks. Our egos tell us to take charge, to be in control. Look back on the most befuddled times in your life. Were they caused by being blindsided by life, when you thought you had all your ducks in a row?
Each of us has been assigned guides and/or guardian angels. Our blueprints for soul growth are drawn before incarnation, but we are not abandoned to fumble through planet Earth’s lessons. We are never alone, although we may experience loneliness. Our guides cannot interfere because we have free will, but they are ready to assist, if we ask. My guides help me find lost articles, parking spaces and give guidance on life altering decisions.
Six years ago, I was directed to my current home and city. Because it felt right, I moved 500 miles to a place where I knew no one. I never doubted or regretted that decision. Most recently, I went to the post office to mail a letter. After I had parked the car, a thought popped into my head to go to the drive-in mailbox, which I never use. As the letter dropped into the box, a cloud burst. Had I not listened, I would have been drenched, while walking back to the car.
We rush through our lifetimes, striving for the next goal, without enjoying here and now. No one is guaranteed tomorrow and yesterday is gone. Slow down, ask for help and quiet the chatter. Your spirit team will answer. Some people hear voices, others see images in their minds. My guidance comes in the form of feeling. If something does not feel right, I head for the hills.
Start communicating with your guides, by asking for help with little things, for example, finding a parking space. Trust the answer and express your gratitude. Assistance is at your fingertips, just ask, shut-up and listen.
When I was a child, I thought adults knew everything, especially grandparents. I was wrong. The older I become, the more questions I ask. Magic is everywhere, but we are too blind to see it. I marvel that we are all unique. There are no two snowflakes alike. It has been discovered that trees communicate. Mother trees help seedlings to grow. I marvel at nature’s coding. Seeds contain instructions. With the proper soil, light and water, they flourish.
Humans struggle for balance between freedom and government. Bees and ants have complex societies, which provide food, shelter and protection. Worker bees can carry half their weight of pollen in hairy receptacles on their hind legs. Ants carry loads much larger than themselves.
Look at yourself to see an awesome creation. Think of the complex systems that keep you alive without your direction. Bones mend and antibodies attack illness. Food breaks down to usable nutrients, cells grow, blood flows, waste excretes, oxygen and carbon dioxide exchange. The brain is the command center for our ability to think, talk, feel, see, hear, remember, walk, breathing.
Stopping to smell the roses taught me to look beyond what I took for granted. Creation is magic, more mysterious than coincidence, accident or human creation. Explore the unseen, for it is more than the seen. The joy is in the discovery journey.
With age I thought I’d know
The answers of the universe
Instead I am in awe
More questions, all is mystery
Each one of us unique
With systems of complexity
The miracle of birth
Who doubts the hand is heavenly?
I look around my world
Observing plants and animals
How do they know the drill?
Forever marching to the beat
Life’s cycle has a plan
From now until eternity
All creatures play their roles
There is no end, infinity.
