I counted seven smushed snakes on the road this morning. They seemed at peace. Flat, but at peace. Since snakes are one of my animal spirits I wondered if seeing that many deceased bodies was a bad omen, or if the Universe was trying to tell me to get going before it is too late for me as well.
When I had a session with Jeanne Daniels, an integrative healing therapy coach, she told me to see EVERYTHING as a sign. Now that my eyes are newly focused I see signs, but am not sure how to interpret them. Allow me to share a few recent discoveriesâ€¦aka hits between the eyes.
My husband and I went to our financial planner who zeroed in on me immediately. Iâ€™ll spare the details, but in essence he said I need to start making money. Dreams are fine, but money and planning pay the bills. My translation? ACT NOW.
The astrology blogâ€”ElsaElsaâ€”said the stars are aligned for the next three weeks to favor the risk-takers. In particular this is a time for Aries to dare. Guess what sign I am? Yep. No translation needed on that one.
Last night I watched a webinar offered by Christine Kane. What resonated were her five things we â€œwaitâ€ for:
- Discovery (In other words, Iâ€™m waiting for Oprah and Meredith Vieira to discover my talents. Well, I AM!)
Ms. Kane concluded by inviting the attendees to keep this mantraâ€¦ â€œI will no longer allow the energy of indecision to weigh me down.â€ If I liked tattoos Iâ€™d be tempted to get that one put in a noticeable place. Lord knows my butt has enough room for a proclamation of that length.
Her point was well taken. How much energy do I waste as I over-think each action? How much time do I let pass waiting for the perfect alignment of stars to push me forward, or THE person who will show me the way? Iâ€™m relearningâ€¦slowlyâ€¦ that Iâ€™m that person. I know the way if I just trust myself and remain authentic to my core values. How about you? What signs to you follow?

When I was undergoing chemo, I bought a t-shirt that said “survivor.” The period part of it is very important! I waited for MONTHS to wear it because I didn’t ‘know’ if I was a survivor yet. Then one day I WOKE up to the fact that NO ONE was going to give me permission to BE a survivor. I had to give myself permission . . . and I did!!!
