Listening to Signs

7 Oct

Should I learn Italian or Spanish? I ask myself.

I love Italian and have already started learning it, but Spanish is much more widely spoken and (therefore?) more useful.

I take an Angel Card.

Ear Chakras: Notice messages that appear as sounds, music, and words, from both external sources and within your mind. These messages are real answers to your prayers.

A few weeks later: I step onto a bus and have the impression of stepping into Italy – the bus is jam-packed with young Italian students, who are all chatting and joking in Italian. I remember the Angel card.

I book an Italian lesson. As I am arranging the lesson with my teacher over the phone, a smile spreads across my face and energy pumps at a crazy pace around my body. I feel like running to the nearest bookshop to buy Italian books and start practicing right here, right now.

I am so excited about taking Italian lessons again and am filled with joy as I think about continuing learning this beautiful language.

How would I have felt had I booked a Spanish lesson instead? I would have felt frustrated and bored, because I would only have picked Spanish because “it is useful”, “it could help my career”, “it is a more logical option”. My heart would not have been in it.

I suddenly understand what Louise Hay meant when she wrote:

I nourish myself by saying no when I mean no, and yes when I mean yes. I know what I want.

My Magical Christmas

22 Dec

What will make a magical Christmas:

A meal made together.

Spending the day with those I love, or spending it doing things I love.

Conversation and activity that includes everyone present.

Gifts given with love.

A kind word to those who have brought something positive, however small, into my life.

A prayer.

Candles and silence.

A thought for those with whom I could not celebrate.

Gratitude for each of the gifts I receive.

Joy for this wonderful day that reunites families, giving us an opportunity to give, receive and share, mindfully, consciously, at least once a year.
