Signs are all around us, like the stop sign or yield sign but more than telling us what to do there are signs that are symbolic… IF we are aware! If you hit every stop light on your way to work for a week could that mean something more symbolically? Would you start to think that the Universe is trying to send you a sign because it is feeling like more than just a random event? We get individual signs everyday yet when we get the same sign repeatedly we need to look at the underlying symbolism and how that might inform our life and decision making. Here are some examples of how people have symbolically interpreted the signs in their lives and taken action.
The Dog Whisperer
Jamie, a CFO for a Boston Corporation kept seeing stories on the TV about the adjustment difficulties rescued dogs had when brought to shelters. Paying attention to the signs she started volunteering at a local shelter where she found that dogs that were seemingly aggressive and unapproachable she could calm and have asleep in her lap in minutes. This has now become her life’s work.
Past Life Signs
Lynn developed a sudden and totally unexpected infatuation with a man she just met that she could not shake no matter how hard she tried. She sensed there had to be another connection and through a past life regression experience she uncovered the deep, significant connection she felt they had experienced. Once she understood the connection her infatuation ended and life went back to normal (Note: experiences shared with permission, names have been changed).
Finding a New Home – 2 Different Signs
I was looking for a home to buy, 3 years ago and nothing on the market worked. Every house needed so much work and renovation and I did not have the time or energy for that and was giving up my search. Out of the blue I got a call from an old friend asking me to consider a new condo that was being built in his complex…this was my sign. The location, size and neighbors, everything felt right. On top of that the name, Wiltshire Place, is the name of the town in England where Stonehenge is located, the mysteries of which have always fascinated me.
