No Doubt! (or, why even wimpy requests for signs work too)!

UNIVERSAL ENERGIES VLOG
Hi there special one,
I’m back at the airport at LAX (more TV stuff to share next year, stay tuned) and something really cool happened yesterday I want to share with you. As of late I have been really focused on my dialog with the Divine, asking Spirit for messages that I cannot possibly deny.
Last week (or was it the week before?) I shared about house hunting and the giant dragonfly that showed me my house. Nature is always, for me, the best way to communicate for signs and omens. I have never been disappointed.
So why do I wonder after a while if I’ve run out of signs? I know I know you’d expect that I would always expect a sign, and never doubt but when I’m tired and jet lagged, my mind goes a little wacky and I begin to question.
Maybe this time Spirit ignores me, maybe I’ve had my share and unless I’m in the perfect mental/spiritual/ emotional master manifesting combination of faith, surrender, expectation and calm, nothing is going to happen.
Does that ever happen to you?
I know when my logic and intellect gets over-active and overrides my intuition I’m not using the right toolbox to discern my reality. Too much thinking and analyzing can cut us off from Spirit’s mysteries.
So, recognizing I was behind enemy lines temporarily, I decided to go back to my hotel and have a bath and meditate, as I was truly exhausted and disconnected. I decided to focus on whatever came up for me intuitively as a sign that I was connected to Spirit. As I slid into the hot steamy water an image of a blackbird came into my consciousness.
I have a deep and mystical relationship to ravens and crows, and I always consider them special messengers for me. I have not seen a raven in a long time, other than the two painted on my Harley, as back east it’s mostly crows that fly round the neighborhood.
So, I did ask for the symbol of connection to ask for yet I was nervous about asking for a raven. I had not seen any birds since arriving in Pasadena although I did hear some average twittering.
So with eyes closed I sent out a really limp and wimpy request, with more than a teeny bit of doubt, yet sprinkled with Pollyanna like hope to connect to one. I mean there is no logic in this at all yes? How could a raven possibly send me a sign in a hotel room in a bathtub?
I dismissed my request immediately, allowing my logical mind to lead suggesting “this can’t happen given where I am and what I’m asking for so shut it down”. Then I shrugged it off and figured I would wait until I got outside and instead allowed my mind to ponder all the things I was grateful for tangible and intangible.
I began to smile.
Then it happened. It began with a “krrrrrrrrk krrrrrk”.
I listened eyes wide open stock still in the tub.
Then another “krrrrrrrk krrrrrk” with a companion “krrrrrk”
Only ravens make that sound.
I pull myself out of the tub and run to the window and sure enough 2 ravens catapult themselves into the air from a tree branch outside my window.
I got back in the tub and admittedly ping ponged frantically back and forth from “whoa that was so cool! to “did I just make that up?”
You know I am a believer, a hard -core synchronicity and sign expecting faith- pumping knower! For crying out loud this is stuff I teach! Yet here I was about to dismiss this to a full on exhausted brain cramp of analysis paralysis of how I might have heard them before my request etc.
A few moments go by, and I do a 3 minute forgiveness exercise.
“KRRRRRRK”- “ KRRRRRRRK”.
C’mon right? How many signs do I need?
Then a song came on the radio.
No Doubt…. The song.. Don’t speak.
I got the message!
Yes even those of us who know intimately the dialog of the divine can be doubters. Not today my friends. Not today. Even wimpy requests are answered! Love to hear how you’re doing this week!
So what’s the message for all of us?
Love you all…
