How to receive messages from the Universe
In the previous instalment, we covered external and internal guidance when interpreting the Universe. Let’s dive a bit deeper into the ways you might receive these messages.
Some of the most common messengers are numbers, symbols, images, words or the actions of others, as well as our internal knowing and feelings.
One voice in many
There are innumerable books and teachings on the subject. This is what I have to say on the subject. Use the books as a guide only, remember that your feelings and interpretation of what images or symbols mean to you is much more significant than someone else’s interpretation of it.
For example, it’s quite common for a dog to represent faithfulness or protection. But if when you see a dog you have a completely different perspective of what a dog means to you, then you need to go with your gut on this.
Essentially, your subconscious, Universe, Creator, God, Spirit, Divine Energy or whatever word you use to identify with the Intelligent consciousness that created the Universe, is speaking to you. It will use symbols and messages in a way that is meant for your interpretation only.
I am often asked, “Anik, I saw a … what do you think that means?”. The best guidance I can offer is 1) how does seeing that make you feel? 2) What does that mean to you?
The internal wisdom that you have on what these messages mean will always trump any outside source like a book. Remembering that this is also their personal interpretations of what these things mean.
For instance, the Western interpretation of numbers is extremely different from the Eastern view on them. That’s why it’s always good to use your own wisdom to decide what it means for you.
Also, something to consider is to identify where your internal wisdom is coming from as there is a big difference between your instinct and your intuition. You can check out my post to help you learn to discern the difference.
The last thing I want to note is simply this; When developing our intuition and tapping into our inner wisdom, just remember spirit speaks softly whereas ego is often loud and paired with a sense of urgency. Be sure to know which voice you are listening to.
When we know how to listen, the Universe’s unlimited wisdom is at our disposal.
