Do you notice the signs that are being placed before you?
Are you aware of the messages that are being given?
In the past week I have received wonderful gifts from many sources.
Taking the time to enjoy the beauty that surrounds you, can be joyous, revealing and enlightening.

A message in the clouds:

I have enjoyed cloud watching all of my life. I remember as a child, laying, looking up for hours at the sky, finding familiar shapes in the clouds, thinking about who was sending me these wonderful messages and pictures. Well this week, a few weeks before my 53rd birthday, I received my answer. I was in for a spectacular gift in the sky that I will never forget.

My husband and I were taking a walk along the waterfront at a local park. We came to our favorite bench where we sit to watch the Osprey and water birds. Today my husband decided to do some sky watching, he laid out across the bench gazing up at the clouds. Some time had passed and he mentioned to me to look up at the wispy, feather like formation that was now floating above us. It was indeed beautiful but what happened next was incredible. A formation was shifting to take the shape of a phoenix, this was lovely in itself but then it began to illuminate, an intense brilliant rainbow only within this part of the cloud formation now danced before our eyes. I was so overwhelmed by its beauty that I had tears of wonder and joy flood forth. We sat in awe of this amazing sight unable to look away as we may miss any part of this event. A message then came forward to me "your prayers have been heard and answered" and the rainbow faded away. I thanked the Creator of this amazing event for the unconditional love and continued guidance, as this was for me a confirmation of my chosen path.

A visit from a caterpillar:

Sitting, gently swaying as I read a book on my backyard swing, a fluffy white caterpillar began to climb up my leg. I said hello and gently placed him out on the grass, some distance away to continue his journey. 45 minutes later still reading and swaying I felt a familiar tickle on my leg. There he was once again climbing up to visit. This time I took the time to listen .... I am still climbing no matter how many times I am put down, I came to visit to deliver a message, "keep climbing, as one day you will reach your destination, and then as I, you will be transformed, follow and come fly with me." I smiled and thanked him, I looked around for signs of where he may have first come from. All over the deck were signs of caterpillars in the tree above me, so I reached up and let him walk of my outstretched hand into the leaves above. It was not until later that I realized I had also assisted him upon his journey by giving him a hand up. We can all assist others by offering an outstreched hand, to give them the assistance in that moment to move forward upon their journeys. May we all join each other as we reach our destination, transform and take flight.

Much Love and Blessings
