My intention for today was to find clarity in regards to my path or what Divine has in store for me.
I have been asking a lot lately what is my true purpose. I have gained a lot of skills over the past year which I will combine with all my foundation skills and experience and am wondering how it is all going to tie up together in order to truly step into my path. I want to be working, creating and living what I am truly meant to be doing on this earth. I know that everything is perfect for me right now, but I also want to be moving towards a deeper connection, a deeper and even more purposeful way of living including how I can truly assist others in their healing.
My work currently brings me so much awe inspiring connection though I feel I am not able to reach who I need to reach and so have been asking for clear signs and messages.
So I set my intention to go out for the day to photograph any signs and symbols with trees being my subject matter (I have a thing for trees). I would then read those photographs as a journey or story for my path. Before I set out I meditated, I asked for my guides and Guardian Angels, for the Higher Energies and the spirits of love ones to assist me in finding and photographing my messages and guidance.
Before leaving I happened to glimpse out the front window and saw the answer to what was making all the noise in our usually quiet street. There was a tree lopping service cutting down trees and dumping the stumps in a truck across the road. Mmmm that’s interesting – I thought.
I got my camera, tripod and writing pad together and walked out of my door with the intention of jumping in the car to start my journey. Only to realise 1 minute later I had locked myself out of the house without the keys to the car. My partner had taken our eldest to the movies and wasn’t due back for a couple of hours.
I knew immediately what I needed to photograph though I tried to ignore it and instead, tried to break into my home – back into my comfort zone. After a few minutes of checking windows, I became determined to get into our locked bedroom window. When I realised I couldn’t break in, I tried to sit it out. I sent a text to my partner asking if they could come home straight after the movie and telling him what had happened.
I sat and decided to wait… and I soon got bored.
Then I heard the machines start up the street again and knew that this is where I needed to go. As trees have been a reocurring theme for me and knowing that this was my subject matter for guidance, I knew this was what I needed to photograph… right away! Damn it, there was no escaping it… the guidance was loudly calling me.
I tried so much to avoid going down my street. I thought my journey would take me further from my home, a journey of adventures into areas unknown. Though I realised and saw that this was a sign that I have all the tools and skills I needed to step onto my path, they are right there, right on my doorstep.
Funny how when we know where we need to go, our fears pop up almost immediately. I instantly began the mental chatter of ‘What if the neighbours thought I was strange?’, ‘What if the tree loppers told me to leave?’, ‘What if they thought I was weird?’
Bugger it. I had to do it. I asked for signs and I had to honour the process and Higher Spirits guidance.
As soon as I approached the area…. there, literally, was my sign. ‘Caution. Tree work ahead’. [See above image]
You can’t get more clearer than that, it was even in writing, right in front of me. I know that connecting to trees is where my work is headed though I wasn’t confident about this particular venture until I saw that sign. Don’t you love how when we simply ask, we can receive such blatant signs that it becomes comical. I laughed outloud when I saw this roadwork caution and thought what a great sense of humour my Guides have.
Whilst taking photos of the cut trees the messages and guidance became clearer. I even noticed my courage strengthen when I became brave enough to ask one of the tree loppers if it was ok to photograph their machines. Once I had finished photographing the trees I then looked over them and edited them on my computer. As I chose the photos I wished to publish the messages again became even more clearer and many layered.
‘Caution. Tree work ahead’ photo is a clear sign I will be working with trees in regards to the strength and energy they can provide us humans with our healing.
The death, dying, grief and transition theme is yet another powerful message that has been reoccuring for me recently…
Photo 1. – I could see and feel the grief within the tree, the blood and tears it shed once it was cut. A message that is reassuring me that I can assist healing for others through the grief of their loved ones.
Photo 2. – This photo feels as if the tree is waiting for their passing. A sign I can also assist others in their passing and coming to terms with their transition.
Photo 3. – The death of the tree at it’s residential home. I have been wondering how all this would tie up with my Feng Shui, Geomancy and space clearing services I will be launching soon and feel that this photograph represents not only working in peoples place of residence (symbolise by the letter box and number) using Feng Shui and geomancy but also assisting the release of spirits from homes.
All of these signs I already had experience with and skills for, though up until I read these photos did I truly value them, that I could possibly ‘advertise’ them as true services.
Once I ‘got’ this, once I really got this and all of the layers of the messages I saw in the photographs… another sign appeared.
As I was writing this blog post my partner returned from the neighbours house with the neighbour, who was coming over to offer us a young tree which they have to remove from their yard due to renovations. And instead of cutting it down they wanted us to have it and to plant it in our garden.
Of course we said yes!
Do you ask for guidance?
Do you actively look for signs and symbols that represents the energy? your message?
