Is it time for a visit to the darkroom?
It’s been over a month since my last post but it was time for a visit to the “darkroom”. You’re probably asking yourself “what is the darkroom”? For me, the “darkroom” is an opportunity to catch a vision, a new image for my life very similar to what it’s like when film is developed in the darkroom. An image is captured on film, the negative is processed in the darkroom using only a pinhole of light to develop. You’re not quite sure what that image is going to look like yet through this pinhole of light the image begins to reveal itself the longer it’s exposed to the light. Eventually, the image becomes a fully realized photograph. A visit to the darkroom is the same thing, we sit in stillness knowing that in this nothingness comes something that wants to emerge and it always will as we keep our thoughts focused in the light. This can take a few hours, to a few days, to a few months and for some can even be a few years.
Some mystics call it the “dark night of the soul” but I like to call it the darkroom knowing that there is always that pinhole of LIGHT guiding my path to my next evolution. In the darkroom we can acquire more clarity, focus, intention and a new vision for our life. So I rest in this stillness and when I capture the vision, I can move forward fearlessly and there is nothing more powerful than a focused intention! A visit to the darkroom is especially important during this time of the year as we end the current year and embark on the new one. Be sure to take the time to reflect, regenerate, rejuvenate and refine your goals for the coming year. Don’t be afraid of the darkroom, as there is always a pinhole of light guiding your path and lighting the way.
Lately, I’ve been seeing 555 and 999 a lot! The number sequence of 555 means to “tighten your seat belt, big changes are coming” and 999 means “completion of a cycle”. I’ve also been seeing the numbers 888 which is an auspicious number for abundance. I’m grateful for that! I am elated that I finally finished my book this year and it has been released. I did a book fair, my first book signing and have sold quite a few books. It’s been very exciting to say the least! The most rewarding part is the feedback from those who have read the book and have been inspired by its message. After all, that’s why I wrote it. I’m now working with a book coach to help me do a big release in 2015 and I know that the universe is already taking care of the details. In case you haven’t had a chance to read it you can click here to purchase a signed copy.
On the other hand, I have also been overwhelmed with all the changes happening too. As a matter of fact, just days before releasing the book, I had to take a loved one to the emergency hospital. Thank God everything turned out okay. That’s a story in itself because if I hadn’t been at the right place at the right time, things may not have turned out so favorable. Yet, as I was surrounded by what appeared to be utter chaos, there was this peace within assuring me that everything was going to be okay and there seemed to be a divine order to everything that was happening. So even while your dreams are coming to fruition, like releasing a book, you may be faced with a challenge. Are you going to let that challenge get in the way or are you going to stick with your vision and move forward? I chose to hold steadfast to my vision and affirm that all my needs were being met despite the outward appearance and circumstances.
So here we are at the end of this year 2014. I’m reflecting on all the blessings and insights I’ve learned this past year. I’m also launching “seeds of desire” for next year as I step into being a published author. Yes, big changes are coming and the angels have been sending signs everywhere I look. Just the other day, my husband and I were walking out of a very important meeting that’s going to change our lives dramatically. I stopped to visit the lady’s room and my husband continued ahead of me. As he was walking to the car, he bumps into a well dressed, gentleman with a tie on that said “through the breath of God, all things are possible”! He and my husband had a wonderful chat and I chimed in when I got to the car. We chatted about life, I gave him a copy of my book, he blessed us and off he went. When we took off in the same direction, we noticed he was nowhere to be found, he just disappeared. Was he an angel in disguise? Then when we went to get our Jamba Juice, we parked in a parking lot where we would have to walk a block or two to get there. As we were walking, I see a license plate with the numbers 000 which means that “you are one with the Universe and a powerful being with the ability to manifest all that you desire into your life”. Then we continue walking and I see another license plate with the numbers 444 which means “you are surrounded and protected by angels”! So if that’s not the universe communicating with us, then I don’t know what is!
The purpose for my sharing this with you is to awaken you to the constant divine communication that is happening all around you, answering your questions, relieving you of worry doubt and fear and assuring you that you are truly being guided and protected along your path. All you have to do is look, listen and acknowledge that you are aware that the universe is communicating with you. When you ask for help, the angels quickly take action to assure you that they have heard your prayer and will validate it by showing you a sign. When you listen, you will receive the insight and guidance on what steps to take next in order to experience the best outcome. When you give love, you will be immersed in an energy that only keeps giving the same from your divine source.
I know it’s been difficult for those of you who have suffered the loss of a loved one or facing a challenge or crisis at this time. I lost my mother 7 years ago while she was in my arms so believe me, I know how you feel. But what I also know for sure is that we are truly always connected to our divine source and the more we say “yes” to it, the more it gives in ways that we can’t even imagine for ourselves. When those ways are revealed, we call them miracles.
My wish for all of you who read my blog is that you fully experience all that you desire this coming year and know that it is truly possible! Start your meditation and visioning practice now as that is where all seeds of desire are cultivated. Nurture them everyday and they will grow. There will be challenges along the way which may cloud your vision but these are the times you are being carried despite the outward appearance. Eventually your vision will take on a life of its own and you will get to participate in something wonderful and exciting that was once…just a dream!
Much love and angel blessings,
