They can show up anywhere, literally, but it is up to you to notice and recognize their meaning. They may show up in the form of a song on the muzak at the mall that you directly connect to a person who has passed.
Maybe you are routinely plodding through your day and you have an out of the ordinary object placed in your path, or you see a random cloud formation that is only there for moments. It could possibly be in the form of a feeling of comfort that comes over you when you are upset. Seeing a certain image or piece of art may spark a memory of a certain person who has passed and may be a sign.
Perhaps, as in this instance, you may read something randomly.
One day as I was driving on the highway, I was thinking about a former colleague of mine. I had worked with this person and had long, long talks with him. He and I had both been hurt by people who were trying to make a quick buck through deception. We both commiserated about how they lied about credentials and boasted untruthfully about things they had done and the people they had(n’t) worked with. False claims were even made about genealogy.
We were both used and conned, as were many of our friends and aquaintances. We spoke about how truth is so important, especially in the paranormal field, where the truth and your credibility go hand in hand. It is all you have.
After having these therapeutic talks with my former colleague, I was shocked when he started down the exact same path of deceit. This caused me great distress, that I had been deceived, yet again. I was having a hard time wrapping my mind around how passionately he spoke about being truthful, yet he was making claims that are completely false.
Just then, a car passed me on the right hand side at a high rate of speed which grabbed my attention. The license plate on the car read PSALM 37. Really? PSALM 37? When I reached my destination I looked it up using the King James version of the Bible.
Psalm 37 addresses the question of why the wicked prosper while the people who try to do the right thing suffer. It also says that the wicked’s prosperity will only be temporary because God will reverse things by punishing the wicked and rewarding the good.
WOW! This message was the solution to my struggle.
I was thinking about this problem that was troubling me, and the answer appeared. It was right there for me to notice on the bumper of a speeding car.
That, my friends, was a neon sign. I noticed it, I accepted it and I am thankful for it.
Because of this sign I am at peace with what my former colleague is doing, because I know that he will not prosper by telling lies or half-truths. It is on him. His own actions will cause his downfall.
I choose to stay on the righteous path of truth.
Signs can also tell of future events, things to watch out for or be prepared for. I sometimes see images or faces embedded in photographs or in random patterns of ceiling tiles, wallpaper, woodgrain or floor tiles. Sometimes I recognize that they look like things or people I know. Some would put that phenomenon down to Matrixing, where your brain automatically wants to make faces and images out of randomness. Sometimes, maybe it is, but I take note and keep that thing or person in mind and focus on them while I meditate.
A friend recently sent me a picture of a lit Christmas tree. On the wall, in the pattern of the reflection of the lights, stands a little boy and behind him stands an angel. It is from 2 years ago. I believe with all that I am that this was a sign to pay attention to this boy before he started down a dangerous path. Unfortunately, hindsight is 20/20.
Pay attention and listen to you heart. Be aware that there are signs all around you from loved ones who have passed and from the Angelic Realm.
Slow down, take time to notice what you might have just passed by without a second thought. Look for the signs and be receptive of their meanings. Someone may be trying to tell you something!
