Noticing signs from the universe takes practice, but with training, subtle energy and guidance can be so useful… and awesome!
Throughout my travels, I’ve asked the big questions. What are we (as a species) doing here? Why do I struggle with this or that? What’s the point of it all?
Well, I’ve dedicated 2015 to taking time out from my big adventures, to settle my thoughts and find answers. And some of the things I’m seeing are freaky cool and exciting. The following may be new to many of you, but stick with me here!
A lot of guidance and understanding, for me, comes through meditation. I’ve been meditating off and on for about a year. Some days are easier than others, but I still like it. Recently I’ve started going into meditation with specific questions to ask… a higher power, God, the Universe, my spirit guide… I don’t know what to call it, but I DO feel that something is there, answering back. Yeah, it’s weird and new for me too!
Being unemployed and stressed out about bills constantly, I went into meditation the other day to ask, “What am I supposed to do about money?” It takes some time to relax and settle in, but I had this vision of a picnic with all my family, and we were all seated at this long table with me at the end. In this vision, I looked up and shouted, “Um, yeah how is this supposed to help me? I asked about money, not food!!” Then, someone put a stack of cash in front of me. Then someone else did the same, and another. People were just giving me money!
Frustrated, I snapped out of mediation, pissed that this vision was completely useless and wrote it off as a waste of time. Bummer, right?
So a week later, I’m driving to a family reunion, and that vision dawns on me again. Oh YEAH! I thought to myself, “what dumb advice. It doesn’t mean anything. Although, I am driving to a picnic with my family… the similarities ARE peculiar. How crazy would that be if someone gave me money at this thing?! That would be so nuts, and my vision was right! And I really DID receive a sign from above or wherever!!” Again, I calmed down and realized this was all nonsense. Stop day dreaming Aaron.
I get to the picnic and all my family is there. It was a beautiful day. My uncle walks over and hands me a letter that was sent to his house for me. (I used to live there) It was a check from my University for $80.
I stopped in my tracks. WHAT?! REALLY!? I couldn’t believe it. The more I thought it was just coincidence, the more it didn’t make sense. “I saw this happen in meditation. This can’t be a coincidence!” Cause honestly, what are the chances someone hands me money, just like in my meditation? Astronomical if you ask me. Signs from the Universe are everywhere.

How does this help me? What am I supposed to do with $80, you ask? Not too much obviously, but still pretty awesome that I intuited receiving money at a family picnic. I choose to believe it’s the Universe’s way of saying, “I got your back dude. I’m listening!” I have seen and felt little synchronicities in my life since I’ve started down a spiritual/ intuitive path, but this was a whole different level. It FELT true. I received a sign through meditation and linked it to reality. Is that how to describe it?
Anyway, I’m sure many of you are skeptics, don’t believe in signs or a higher power, but let me tell you, there is definitely something going on. I’m no authority on how to explain this stuff, but I’ve come to accept that the universe is at work, somehow.
This is just one story I have about universal signs and cool synchronicities happening in my life. I mean, the other day I dreamt I was stung by a bee, then the next day I WAS actually stung by a bee!!! COME ON UNIVERSE! I haven’t been stung by a bee in twenty years, I dream about it and then it happens the next day?!? What is that about?! Dunno, but it did frickin’ hurt! Geez! 🙂
Whatever is going on, I’m teaching myself as much as I can. I’m seeing positive growth and change in my life like I’ve never seen before so… that’s gotta be a good thing, right!?
I bring this stuff up because intuition and guidance is how I travel the world and decide what to do. Hopefully I can inspire others to get curious like I did, so they can improve areas of their lives too.
