Things just keep happening. So many things that I want to write about! But by the time I sit down to do it, I don’t even know where to start because there is so much!!
You might just have to wait until I write my first book. Although I have not been writing all that much, I have come up with a working title for this future book:
“A Recovering TVaholic Finally Discovers her True Piscean Nature”
This working title was inspired by the astrology class I am taking. I was reminded that Pisceans are supposed to have the deepest connection to spirit and are usually healers, poets, dreamers, musicians, and visionaries. I studied computer science and got an MBA. My feet are solidly on the ground. I live inside the box. I get shit done. I am practical. I am the opposite of a visionary. I am the one who pokes holes in the crazy visionary ideas people come up with!!
I have learned that astrology is complicated and it’s not all about your sun sign. There was a lot happening in the sky when we popped into the world and it all contributes to who we are. (or it’s all nonsense, but let’s assume it’s not because that’s way more fun!)
But I also know that all of this Pisces stuff is inside me and it’s part of my purpose to tap into it more.
Let’s not forget that I did play bass guitar in an all-women rock band (briefly) with my friends from college (MUSICIAN!) And I also recently wrote this kick-ass poem (POET!)
And…… THE UNIVERSE HAS ACTUALLY STARTED TALKING TO ME!!! This might sound a little crazy but here is the story.
This week, I was reading The Universe Has Your Back (which is the kind of thing people on a spiritual journey do) and Gabby said that I can choose a sign for the Universe to use to send me a message. When I want to confirm that I am on the right path or making the right decision, I can just ask the Universe to show me this sign.
I knew immediately when I read this that my sign was an elephant. I have no special relationship with elephants. I saw quite a few on safari last year, and they were beautiful and amazing, but they had no deep impact on me (that I was aware of.) But LAST week, I did ask my spirit guides to talk to me for the first time ever and they sent me the image of an elephant. I still don’t know why. (It’s kind of like the journeying pickle.) But they showed me an elephant. They also sent me on a mission to find a Fleetwood Mac song sung by Christine McVie. True story. I really wanted it to be “You Make Lovin’ Fun,” but I think they were sending me “Sweet Little Lies.” And I think that meant that someone in my life was not being completely truthful. This has yet to be confirmed, but I can assure you I am paying close attention!
My spirit guides have been silent since the elephant/Fleetwood Mac incident, but after a rough week, struggling with a difficult decision, I decided to ask the Universe if I was making the right call. I said, “Universe, if I am doing the right thing, please show me an elephant.”
Then I went shopping. And I bought a dress with rainbows and unicorns on it. And it was a fun day of shopping, but there were no elephants. And I was wishing I had picked the unicorn as my sign, but I hadn’t.
When I got home, I hung up my rainbow unicorn dress and went online to find a new lamp because mine had died earlier that day and I was in the dark. I was scrolling through Amazon, checking out lamps, and there it was.
An elephant night light.
An elephant night light is not a “thing”. One does not run into elephants while searching for lamps. But there it was. My elephant.
And in less than 24 hours after that, I saw two more elephants! I stumbled on an elephant charm while browsing necklaces online and then I saw an elephant birthday card at Papyrus!
The Universe has my Back!!!
The Universe (and all of the elephants) have confirmed that I made the right decision this week and that I am on the right path. And this is good news for you if you are looking forward to my book because my Pisces is starting to show!
PS: OK, so it’s possible that elephants might just be everywhere and I never noticed it before, but I choose to believe that the Universe has my back. You can believe whatever you want.
PSS: What’s also super weird is that when I went to find the specific elephant night light that the Universe sent me to include a nice picture with this post, I could not find it anywhere on Amazon. It no longer exists on the internet!!!! Weird a.f.!!! I did snap a picture of the O.E. (original elephant.) Here he is. Spiritual proof on my phone.
