Life is becoming stranger and stranger. Fortunately there is a place I can recount my observations and relay any messages I stumble upon. That place is here.
Let’s begin with peach roses. Occasionally I try to contact my spirit guides. I decided that seeing peach roses in person or as an image would indicate spirit contact. Days went by and I began to forget about it. My resolve faded.
Fast forward a few more days and I am in the hospital. I am surveying my hospital room, taking in the decor. The curtains and wall paper was decorated with peach colored flowers. No identifiable roses, but close enough.
Then a few days later peach roses appeared here at WordPress, in my reader. They were featured on Theanne’s blog, Out of My Mind Images . Please check out her uniquely creative artwork and check out the roses too!
According to this site, peach roses can mean gratitude, appreciation, admiration, sympathy, or friendship. I did not know the symbolism when I chose peach roses. I like the unusual color and went with it.
It is interesting to me how spirit confirmation can appear in its own way and on its own timeline. I had tired of waiting and then they appeared. Or one could say that I surrendered and manifested in due time.
Which brings me to a second odd occurrence. I was to attend an astrological lecture by Michael Lutin. I arrived early and took in the beautiful Spring day with a few folks on the porch. As more people began to gather, it became obvious that no one had a key to the front door. Right on cue, Michael arrives. We have met before, but he does not recognize me. That’s okay ; I am quite satisfied that we have had brief exchanges over the years at lectures and conferences.
Michael was quite calm while people shuffled to resolve this missing key problem. The situation seemed surreal. How could this be happening? I am sure you have found yourself here before. I know that I have, and have been known to become angry and frustrated. But the weather could not have been more perfect and I was in the company of a few friends I have not seen in years. I was showered with hugs and plenty of good vibes.
Eventually it was decided that the lecture would be rescheduled. Michael’s main concern was that no one would be uncomfortable or inconvenienced. He did not make it about him. I was quite impressed. We had a short interaction in which I was surprised about his lack of upset about traveling all this way for nothing. He basically stated that things happen, so what are you gonna do? Maybe that was the key we all were in search of, to just allow life to move through us.
I learned more about grace under pressure and that our reactions are everything. Messages from Source can be extremely subtle and often subject to discernment. I was grateful to be outside among like-minded folks on a gorgeous April afternoon. While I do not know when the lecture will take place, perhaps I already received what was needed. The lecture topic is about staying happy during trying times. I find the irony here quite delicious!
