Observationally Times Two

            It’s been a while since we talked about signs arriving and messages received, seemingly, out of the blue.  Those “random” but meaningful symbols are what I was shown this morning.  Twice.

Doubling Up

             My own personal example was a dream within a dream. (Not as confusing as it sounds.)

            We’re being reminded to watch (and listen) for pairs, multiples of two.  Anything occurring twice, in an obvious and glaring fashion.  This is how we’ll know that here is our sign, that is our message.

             (Don’t forget, they can be subtle, so stay alert and pay attention.)  When we DO recognize a sign, get quiet.  It will tell us who sent it, and why.

             I was directed (very strongly and loudly) to leave our regular rotation around the card altar for this exactly perfect, and complimentary, daily draw.

“Wizard of Awareness  ~  3  ~

‘Your soul knows best;

be still and observe.’

Mindfulness is about being observant, and remaining neutral about what goes on in the world around you.  This applies to the environment within you, too.  

If you struggle inside yourself, stepping into an observer position gives you a new, powerful perspective that neutralizes any discomfort or overexcitement.  You have the capacity to see things clearly now, unencumbered by opinion or desire.

Wearing the world as a loose garment requires you to adopt a sense that nothing that happens to you is personal.  People come and go; experiences evolve from one state to another in a continual shifting and change no matter how much you want things to stay the same.

The Wizard of Awareness asks you to give up your need to define or limit what you’re experiencing now.  It’s all good!

Let it be, and watch the miracle unfold without any direct influence from you.”

Today’s Sharing:

will be this Instagram view from earlier in my day.

I was literally less than five feet away.

I was literally less than five feet away.

             Dan got one-out-of-two carvings done last night, and he did what he always does, sets the guts and seeds on that back table (until he can deal with it all later, during daylight/not working hours).   Only this time, (many!) bluejays found it, and we watched the scene unfold before our very eyes.

             Highly entertaining.  Add in Fat Squirrel (who frequents the deck on a regular basis, pawing through the lettuce planters trying to remember where s/he hid [chronically misplaced] winter stores) and we had some up-close-and-personal wildlife excitement.

            (I got this shot by opening the glass slider and positioning a kitchen chair right on the edge of the doorway, then, being entirely still.  And waiting.)

             And yes, that’s a clever, pumpkiny depiction of Flipper.  So it’s obviously MY selection this year.  (He hasn’t chosen his yet.)

  1. That is a gorgeous photo. I often try to get one of my hummingbirds, or the bunnies, but it’s always through a window or a sliding glass door and then not so good. Might have to use your technique. : )

    By the time I get up, everyone is usually gone, so this was a treat! But yeah, the key is to open the door, and just sit there/don’t move, have your camera ready.

  2. How wonderful that you could get that picture! It’s always amazing how willing jays are to get in close if there’s a treat available. And how sharp of them to check out that bowl (‘course I probably would have fought them for the seeds 🙂 )

    I envy you your lettuce planters. I just spent 3 hours outside moving plants and stands into the basement and garage. It’s going down to 28 degrees tomorrow night. Possible flurries by dawn. *sniffle*

    Not much is happening in the lettuce planters right now….
