COLLAGE : SPIRITUAL CONNECTION by DO IT GIRL Sarah Durham Wilson COLLAGE : SPIRITUAL MAPS & SPIRIT GUIDES by DO IT GIRL Sarah Durham Wilson
  Life is a journey. If you're into the work of Joseph Campbell, or if you love a good myth, that is to say, a good adventure story, life is a Hero's Journey. There are caves and dragons, villains and true loves. There is despair and joy; there is the moment you're sure you've finally given up, only to stumble upon the treasure. You're sure it's over for you; you've fallen for the last time-- only to rise again, spectacularly. I have this theory that the Gods just love a good story, so they make our lives as dramatic as they can. But yes, they root for our triumph.

When you consult the Runes, or Tarot, or Astrology, and something resonates or answers the question you've been asking, you get the "So I'm Not Alone… So I’m not Crazy… so I was right”--or the big one- "There's Hope for Me Yet-" feeling. You get the confirmation from the Universe- you're seen and supported. And don't we all just want to be seen and supported? Sometimes it's messages from ancestors, sometimes it's messages from your own heart being reverberated back to you, and sometimes it's from the love you've been calling for. "This way, I'm over here. You're so close. Keep going."
 
Sometimes it says something back to you that only you could have known. Often it's something you already knew was happening or something you knew you had to do but it gets confirmed. It unlocks the internal wisdom waiting for us, or gives us permission to use it, When someone- a witch or a wise person or a psychic or an intuitive anyone- tells you something that you thought was a secret between you and the Universe, you get that zap-zip-zing feeling like – “Oh, we are so not alone.” And thank Goddess for that.
 
You know how they say, “animals can’t talk,” but you converse with your pets all the time, sometimes much more effectively than you do your human acquaintances who speak the same language as you. Once we get past the limitations of a specific language, we are being spoken to in thousands of ways. Emotions, looks, actions, signs, synchronicities.

Shamans say experiencing synchronicities means you are on your right path. Those little –or big- moments you just can’t explain. My friend last night called them “God winks.” Winks from The Universe. Or whatever larger than life force you believe in, that guides you. The Universe can't physically open its mouth and speak, so it does so through signs and symbols and your fellow humans, usually others who are in tune with its forces. It speaks in messages, signs, and through attuned people who serve as its messengers.
