Signs That Smack Ya Over the Head

Inspired by my Twitter and Facebook friend Amy Oscar, I started asking the angels for signs. Signs that would knock me over with bluntness, signs I could easily recognize. You see, life has been a little crazy as of late. My article writing job that I've had steady assignments from for two years has abruptly ended after the transfer of the articles to another company. The new company isn't adding content. So the writers and editors have all been dismissed. Time to find new supplemental sources of regular I feel more in need of guidance than ever. As most of you know, my husband recently started a new job after nearly 8 months of being unemployed. We have lots of recovery to do, bit by bit. The income I bring in is essential. So although it comes from many different sources, when one drops, another needs to fill in where that came from. And I need to find it.

So interestingly enough, nearly two weeks ago I had an idea for a business and I approached three companies about it. They signed on immediately. It's a side thing, but could get bigger. I know I need a website, one that looks more professional than one I could do myself. And last night I was chatting with my sister online and I told her about it. She immediately volunteered her boyfriend's services. I had no idea about this, but apparently he is a graphic designer who designs websites and logos, and he will do this for me free of charge. Good timing, seems like. Okay, perfect timing.

Last night I was driving to do a Reiki demonstration at the local wellness center where I teach Reiki courses, CHEMAM and as I drove I was again asking for guidance. When I got home, I went on Twitter and my friend Krystal who does Oracle readings, said out of the blue that the angels were telling her to do a reading for me and she'll email me this weekend. I was surprised (read - knocked over the head), and told her I had just been asking for guidance. She said that's why they contacted her to email me. I'm eagerly awaiting the message, but felt like I had been responded to already.

Although I can't hear whispered guidance (yet), and really need to schedule in daily meditation time, I do think that Amy is right. Ask, keep asking, and things will happen. I seem to be landing in the right place at the right time lately, so I'm taking these events as signs that I'm getting where I need to be. It's a journey for sure.

If you have experiences to share, please do. I'll keep posting as events unfold for me.

I laughed as I read this post today. Yes, you certainly got a sign! Might want to soften the request to signs I can't miss- LOL. (Just looking out for your precious tender head! Ouch!

I think I need the big obvious signs - they make me amazed, and I need that right now. But I think you are right - I'd better be careful what I ask for or something might really fall on my head! Eek! LOL. Thanks for the inspiration you always provide in abundance.
Love and light,

The Angels always deliver, if you're clear with what you ask it will happen. Seems like you're doing just fine. You're watched over very nicely. You should have your reading tonight doll!!

I am constantly amazed by the signs that come even when we think there are none there! I keep reminding myself everyday to be open to the messages, both obvious and subtle ones - don't want to miss anything! :) As I tweeted, I'm really really excited for you about this, Alice.
With love

Dear Alice,
The signs have always been there for you, so be careful about asking for them to be more blunt! :) Sometimes, it's when we are so busy with all the jobs we do, that we miss those blunt signs. I feel that the abrupt end to your writing assignments has opened up the room for you to see the signs. It has opened up the way for you to move forward with your new business idea. Also, sometimes, you have to let things fall into place instead of looking too hard for the pieces to fit into the empty holes.
Love & Light,
Caryl ♥

Thank you Caryl!

I truly appreciate your wisdom and insight. I'm trying to go with the flow and follow the opportunistic leads where they fall, while juggling all of the things I need to do besides. I'm sure I miss plenty of signs but I'm trying to make time to be attentive and open. I'm certainly ready and willing to receive guidance! I thank those who have come forward to help steer me and pass along messages. Including you, my dear friend!

Love and light,
