Those signs, true or not, actually hold no power or meaning except that which we place upon it – (i.e. the signs themselves do not change the course that you’re travelling on). That is, until you take action based on what you think they mean.
If the power is not in the sign, then where is it?
And likewise, these two aspects of ourselves have very different outlooks and behaviours. In the same situation, in whichever aspect you choose (consciously or unconsciously) to be in at any given moment, will relate to ‘a sign’ in very different ways.
Both sides of us hold creative power.
The ego functions based on perceptions. It has pre-set ideas and concepts about life – about yourself, others and the world. Then, it looks for signs to prove that your notions are true. “See! I knew it!” you say when someone you didn’t trust betrays you or you see yourself fail at another mammothly unreasonable task. You might notice a slight twitch in a person’s eye and you are sure they are telling you that you don’t belong here.
“That person is a quack, flake, untrustworthy, useless.”
“I am rejected, shameful, incapable, unloveable.”
“The world is unsupportive, dog eat dog, boring, violent.”
The ego is always looking to confirm what it believes is reality – and it believes deep down that you are limited and incomplete. Unfortunately, it only sees just this small slice of life. It will want to use ‘signs’ to prove your deep-seated belief in how it is and place the power over to those signs. Then, it latches onto them like a dog with a bone.
Take for example a recent youtube video I was most unfortunate to watch. If I could, I would like to have those 3 minutes of my life back (I didn’t even finish the whole thing). The video was trying to show me proof that Beyonce was a part of the Illuminati. She may be or not, I don’t care – and I don’t know how I found myself watching it – but the ‘proof’ in this video was so obviously not.
It was filled with looking out for the signs – from the bodice that she was wearing, to a hand gesture to a ‘symbol’ created by a backup dancer’s lace straps. I bet the person felt they were really smart in finding any little thing that proved her alliance to the Illuminati and the devil.
It reminds me of the people who look for sexual references in Disney cartoons.
People find what they want to find. Our ego minds make judgements about how it is, ourselves, others – then takes action based on those judgements, which often times creates the very judgement it believed in the first place. With a whole bunch of pain.
“See! There’s proof that I was right!”... I admit I’ve done it to others and I’ve had it done to me.
On the other hand, the soul functions based on intuition. Intuition meaning a mode of functioning that is founded on a deep and inherent connection to everything.
Your ability to use intuition is available anywhere, anytime. Even if you believe it or not, whether you access it or not, this is available to you. The soul side of you is inherently connected.
When in this space, signs are not used for guarantees and certainty, but instead a reflection of your inherent connection. You have a deeper, more expanded understanding. Life itself shows you the very things you need answers for. A timeless, vibrant essence that is always there comes into your awareness, bringing you a sense of awe, wonder and stillness.
Your awareness goes beyond the ‘signs’.
From your soul vantage point, the power is not seen in the symbols or signs. But anything is a channel to connect you back in. Beautiful sunsets and magnificent clouds, washing the dishes, emotionally charged conflicts with others – everything forms a symbol for you to have a more expanded awareness about yourself.
It is, in fact, you and your inherent connectedness that holds the power.
Another recent example. In the past year, I have been playing with a new type of medical intuition. I was blessed to receive this via Spirit or my soul.
In this type of intuition, your body provides the greatest symbol in itself. I have trialled and tested these readings on others for free in 2014, and found that their current body issue provided a profound symbol to potential realisations of where they are in life.
I don’t quite mean this in the same way as those references books that tell you a disease &/or body part and you gain a predetermined definition of what that means and possibly an affirmation. I have those books – they serve their purpose, but these readings are different.
These are readings that are ongoing on a monthly to 6-weekly basis in your journey towards health, whatever your body issue might be. They work in a very “wholistic” way – meaning that they provide information not only about the physical body, but also emotions, thoughts, beliefs & definitions as well as root causes, linking them to your symptoms experienced.
Recently, I have been quite overdue for a reading on myself. When I finally sat down and gave myself the space to do it, I was so profoundly aware of how it reflected where I am at in my life right now. So different from the very first one. My life in that first week of January 2014, when I first received inspiration on how to do these readings, is very different to now. And my recent reading reflected that.
In the layers of my current state of health, my reproductive system, gall-bladder in collaboration with my liver and urinary system all reflected a common message about my unconscious egoic ideas of lack of abundance & support. And my potential of health showed me what I really am like when in health - my true frame and outlook towards life, how my body health really could be.
I found it a rather enlightening process, yet again.
At any moment, you can see which side of you is playing out (ego or soul) by how you choose to place meaning on the ‘signs’.
Are you choosing to use the signs to re-confirm your egoic beliefs & ideas about yourself, others & the world – putting the power outside yourself onto conditions, events and circumstances (i.e. signs)? Or are you choosing to use the signs to remind you of your inherent knowing, power and connection – letting those signs bring you to a higher state of realisation on your journey?
