Spiritual Signs, Symbols, and Synchronicities

"Our lives are not our own. From womb to tomb, we are bound to others, past and present. And by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future. I believe there is another world waiting for us, a better one. And I'll be waiting for you there." - Robert Frobisher, from the movie, Cloud Atlas.

What path are we on? Is life just a nine to five treadmill that we run on every day? Are we just meant to wake up, work, and then die? Are we really paying attention to our lives? The spirit world is! The spirit world is always there, always present, and always sending us many signs, symbols, and synchronicities. The spiritual path is simply the journey of our lives. Everyone in life is on a spiritual path, it's just most people don't know it! When you have a spiritual awakening, spirit becomes aware of the shift in their vibration, energy, and frequency and when the person becomes awakened and aware with a willingness to step into the knowledge that has always been.
 
There is more to us, the universe, the human experience, and what our belief system is of "God." That moment of awakening is coterminous when we realize that there is more to our lives than just paying the bills, competing in the daily rate race to advance our careers, make more money, and we start asking the bigger, more important questions of life. It is at this point that spirit shows up to us, meeting us half way as we begin our transformation from the ground perspective of the caterpillar to the higher perspective of the butterfly. Something within calls us to prospect, explore, and discover the deeper meaning of the mind, body and soul. This is when spiritual signs begin to show up and guide us on our spiritual path.
 
There are signs everywhere for us to witness and observe that is if we are paying attention and we are aware of spirit's presence, energy, and vibration. So for those who are in the 'incarnate' form or the physical, flesh suit, how do we interpret the meaning of signs that we are being shown from those who are 'discarnate' or not having a physical body in the spirit world? Some of the signs come in "loud and clear," or that direct slap to the face when pain makes us pay attention through the loss of a loved one, a personal tragedy, or health scare. Subtle signs from spirit usually leave a nice little bread crumb trail for us to follow and can be metaphorical or symbolic in nature.
 
Symbols throughout history have always spoke and connected to the subconscious mind and have great potency and power depending on your perception in that moment of our lives, where we are at physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. Oftentimes, our perspective needs time and several adjustments as the analytical mind works to decode the messages in real time or "now" when we receive symbols, signs, or synchronicities, when in fact it may take seconds, minutes, hours, days, months, or even years for the moment of illumination to reveal itself. Timing and "feeling" plays an important part in this process and this is a big reason why many in life miss the subtle signs of spirit as they want answers now, don't feel into the situation, and are not willing to wait and be patient for everything to unfold. "We think to much and feel to little." -Charlie Chaplin
 
Conversations, dreams, life experiences, movies, music, books can all be triggers that start to put the pieces of life's puzzle together. Even though it is human nature and the power of the mind to seek and understand all of life's answers through signs, symbols, and synchronicities, we must also surrender to the fact that some things will remain a mystery and can take time to come into fruition. Gracefully accept with gratitude that when the student is ready, the teacher will appear...

Hi Marc,

I went ahead and corrected the "2nd person" mentions - as well as a few sentences that were running on a bit too long. I broke those down so our readers can digest them easier. Also, there were one or two instances where I trimmed down a few words to make it more concise, without changing the meaning or the concept. This is the version I'll send to publishers if that's OK:



Spiritual Signs, Symbols, and Synchronicities

By Marc Lainhart

"Our lives are not our own. From womb to tomb, we are bound to others, past and present. And by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future. I believe there is another world waiting for us, a better one. And I'll be waiting for you there." - Robert Frobisher, from the movie, Cloud Atlas.

The spirit world is! The spirit world is always there, always present, and always sending us many signs, symbols, and synchronicities. The spiritual path is simply the journey of our lives. Everyone in life is on a spiritual path, it is just that most people don't know it! When we have a spiritual awakening, spirit becomes aware of the shift in our vibration, energy, and frequency.  It becomes aware when a person is awakened with a willingness to step into the knowledge that has always been.

 

There is more to us, to the universe, the human experience, and what our belief system is of "God." That moment of awakening is coterminous when we realize that there is more to our lives than just paying the bills, competing in the daily rat race to advance our careers, and make more money. We start asking the bigger, more important questions of life. It is at this point that spirit shows up, meeting us half way as we begin our transformation from the ground perspective of the caterpillar to the higher perspective of the butterfly.

ps ... nevermind - just saw the bio =)

Comment by Marc Lainhart on April 22, 2016 at 5:28pm

Hi Regina,

I edited per your feedback for better 3rd person perspectives and added my bio at the end of the article. Thanks!

~M

Comment by Regina Chouza on April 22, 2016 at 5:27pm

Hi Marc - the word count is actually OK

We have new directives coming out soon and this will fit in length wise.

The article can be written in 3rd person or in first person plural - We,  not I or My - The reasoning behind this is that we want to stay away from personal anecdotes (I). The thinking is that you can be problematic if it implies that the writer is correct and the reader isn't "in the know" - we don't want to create a divide.

If you'd like to tack on the bio I wouldn't mind correcting this one myself and posting it in the comments so that you can see what I mean =)

Thanks!

Regina

HI Marc, Thanks for submitting this article =) My name is Regina, I am one of the editors at OM Times. I have two small comments on your submission:

- In her latest guidelines, our senior editor asked that we stay away from first person singular narratives completely and 2nd person as much as possible. Would you be OK with adapting this into third person, or perhaps "first person plural" as that might be easier and it's more inclusive?

So for ex, when you say "your perspective" we would say "our perspective" etc.

- Please include an author bio at the end - up to 60 words =)

Thanks again!

Regina
