Messages, Moments and Mother Mary

Very often we get messages from our Higher Power, whether we call it God, the Universe, or something else. And very often the difficulty or confusion for us lies in the fact we do not pay attention to them.

Or, we over analyze them.

I've been paying more attention to my instinct lately. I realized I needed to start living my life, or at least having one. I've also been trying to live more in the moment and act accordingly. I've opened myself up to being more receptive to dating and joined a more spiritual dating community.

I've been getting some messages lately, confirming I've done the right thing.

One of the first signs I received after making this decision, came from a friend, and this sign reminded me I often sell myself short. So, in this new phase of my life, this is to remind me I can handle what ever happens. I am in control of myself.

I also like to use different sources for daily meditative thoughts and affirmations. I also like to tune in to messages from animal totems. I have an app that has different messages on virtual cards picturing different animals and their messages, comparable to a tarot deck. Sometimes I will use one of the messages as a meditation for the day. The day after I received the above sign, I opened the app, cleared my mind, and randomly selected a card.

I drew the Squirrel card.

And Squirrel's message is: PREPARATION-Get ready for big changes. As the squirrel anticipates the changes of winter, he prepares and gets everything ready and in place. For me, this change could mean a new job (not likely in the middle of a school year), a new relationship (possible, but I'm not holding my breath especially so soon after deciding to be more active) or a major move (again, not likely). While I can't anticipate what change is coming, I can prepare my mind to be open to the nuances of the change itself. With change comes the potential for worry, which in turn makes the change a lot harder. I need to rely on family and friends for support during this time. And, above all, I need to BREATHE.

This morning, three hours before my alarm was to go off, I woke up to this thought stampeding through my head: "When the soul is ready..." and that was it. That was the entire thought that disturbed my sleep. Yet, I immediately finished the thought with the words "he will appear." It was automatic, a knee-jerk reaction in the daze of interrupted sleep. It all sounded so familiar, but where had I heard it before? I'd actually read it in an article on soul mates.

Is this the change that is coming? Will my soul mate soon appear? Has the Universe decided I am ready whether I think I am or not?

Time will tell....

So, the messages are telling me:
  • I'm braver, smarter and stronger than I give myself credit for; 
  • a change is coming, so I need to prepare my mind (and my heart), rely on others for support and not worry about it; 
  • and my soul is ready to meet a possible soul mate, at least according to my subconscious, which woke me up to tell me this. 
Trouble is, I've over analyzed messages before.

As, I'm working on just being in the moment, and following my instinct as I open myself up to the possibilities of dating, I will follow those words of wisdom from Mother Mary,

Let it be.

  1. "joined a more spiritual dating community"

    -- Does that mean you have joined a gay-oriented church and intend to pick up your partner from its batch of members?

    1. Nope, it's an online community with a more spiritual side, appealing to those who are looking to have more of a spiritual connection, whether they are looking for friends, some casual dates or something more long term. It's very inclusive of all orientations and gender-identifications.

  2. Online community? Is that on Facebook or do they have a website? I'd like to check that out. So link, please.

    1. It's not on Facebook, and it goes by several names. I log on to

    1. You're welcome! Hope it works for you!

  4. OMG! Can you believe I've just opened the website and YOUR profile appeared under "featured members"? Wow!! I've screen shot it. XD

    1. I was surprised when I first saw it! Thanks!
