Just a quick update on my symbolquest ~ While no one has been pinning my German chocolate cake pins lately, I found some new ones and added them to pinterest.
There were a few cool seashell developments worth mentioning. Mercurial trick-stress Gneiss over at GMA shared here cool seashell oracle cards with me for a reading here. She does for astrology what Odie of eyesofOdyssseus does for photography and satire. Check her out please! My pal Julie over at peacockseyes was inspired and wrote a starfish article here. Then I attracted a cool new follower Jamie and decided to follow her back. Guess what her gravatar is? To see the blue cosmic sea spiral in its glory, visit her site here . We discovered more than one synchronicity between us and her blog is wonderful!
Then my awesome Gemini moon sister Amanda at dreamly.com reminded me today that she sent me her beautiful starfish photo via email not too long ago.
It isn’t a shell but a few shells are included in the shot. This photo definitely seems linked with the starfish prominently displayed in my original photo on my initial post. Gorgeous shot, don’t ya think? Please check out her scrumptiously surreal articles here.
Clearly the sea creatures are making their presence known :)
This is not a blogging challenge, but that does not mean you cannot blog about your chosen symbols and how they are lighting up your path.
Here’s the original post:
The past few days I have felt led to go through some old training material and reread part of my journal. Some very cool stuff has been resurrected and this feels good!
I found an idea in my journal to designate two symbols as my own signs of being on the “right path.” This idea is not original. I found it on Laurali Star’s former WordPress blog which sadly is no more. Anyway, I identified the two symbols and quickly forgot about the whole thing. Like myself, they are both sweet and salty. Can you guess which is sweet and which is salty?
Drum roll please…….
This is my first symbol. Many readers know I love German chocolate cake. What is very interesting is that my German chocolate cake picture on pinterest has been blowing up lately. I have no idea why it has become so popular, but it did get my attention.
This is my second symbol. I love seashells and once collected them as a hobby.I even have jewelry containing shells. My abalone shell earrings are among my favorites and since I am an earring fanatic, that counts for something.
So what does this mean? I am committed to looking for these signs anywhere and everywhere and I invite you to try this exercise as well. For my blog buddies, if I see these symbols on your blogs, I will point them out. Acknowledgement gives more energy to the process.
I am at a point in my journey where I want to use more of the tools at my disposal. And have fun while doing it. I believe that I “rediscovered” this idea so I could give it another try.
Are You With Me??
