Even though I often write about the challenges of healing
during my spiritual awakening, there is also magic. Some days the magic is what
reinvigorates me and keeps me going on the path. Some days are truly magical
all on their own.
A Magical Morning.
Being in nature is very healing for me. On a recent morning,
I was wrestling with some spiritual growth and decided I needed a dose of
nature. It was a warm, late spring morning. The grass was as green as it gets,
trees and shrubs were blooming. The park was alive with children and parents,
dogs playing fetch, and walkers like me. The energy was as vibrant as the day.
As I was walking the path around the park and mulling over my
current energy, a crow hopped by me and cawed at me several times. I greeted
the bird knowing that it was a message from spirit. I watched the loud bundle
of black, high-gloss feathers hop away.
A few steps further on the path, I stopped. A woodpecker was
in front of me excavating a crack in the sidewalk. I watched it for a moment. I
had never seen a woodpecker work on the ground, it was fascinating. Eventually,
it stopped and flew to a nearby tree. As I walked by that part of the sidewalk,
I noticed the crack was full of panicked ants. I made a mental note to look up woodpeckers
for the symbolism and continued walking around the park.
A short while later and while still in the park, a butterfly
fluttered close to and around me. I giggled out loud and watched it flutter
away. It was magical. Butterflies are a known symbol of transformation. It was
then that I got curious about all the animals I had seen that morning.
When I got home, I started researching the symbolic meaning
of the crow, the woodpecker, and the butterfly. While they all have many
meanings, each one is also a symbol of transformation. During that morning walk
I was surrounded by signs and messages of transformation. It gave me hope to
keep going on my spiritual path. It was a magical morning.
There is also magic in the support I receive from my angels
and spirit guides. I have been visited and guided by both Archangel Michael and
Archangel Gabriel. During the deepest healing and most challenging days, my
spirit guide “mom spirit” visits for one-on-one guidance. They all bring their
own brand of magic.
When I am working my way through a healing cycle, doing my
version of “the work”, I am supported. This
is new, just within the past couple of weeks. To have someone answer when
you’re calling on angels is the most amazing and magical experience of my life.
The archangels bring wisdom, love, and peace into my soul.
Their visits are infrequent and very powerful. When I channel archangels, I begin
to cry and release. Their energy is pure love and light. I have wondered if I’m
crying from release or from the beautiful energy that they shower me with. It is that beautiful and magical.
Mom spirit’s “voice” comes through with sage and spicy
advice. She helps me laugh through the pain. Her spiritual wisdom and sharp wit
are balm to my soul when I’m in the crying and releasing phase of my healing
cycle. Her guidance has been critical in the moments I become lost. Her magic
is love and support.
Synchronicities are a Kind of Magic.
When I’m able to turn my thinking around and focus on the
spiritual aspects of the situation, I am showered with synchronicities. Mid-way
through my spiritual awakening they started as number sequences but have since
developed into physical manifestations. I receive guidance through all sorts of
synchronicities. They are a kind of magic all their own.
When I am processing emotion and doing the work, my
vibration dips as I feel it to heal it. It is then that my angels and spirit
guides hold back and wait for me to learn and grow, unable to pierce the low
vibrational energy. Then I remember the lessons they have taught me and I to
surrender doubts and fears to the angels and spirit guides. It’s then that shower
me with synchronicities, support, and encouragement.
I guess this is what happens when you follow through on your
spiritual awakening, magic happens. I didn’t expect it, but I did ask for guidance.
I just didn’t realize that the guidance would be so hands on and personal. I am
fully supported by angels and spirit guides, and I am grateful for it. May the
magic find you one day.
