We are shown signs and symbols every day. It is up to us to notice and interpret the meanings of the signs. You can go out and spend a fortune on books which give meanings to these things but why not create your own little record book as these things are very personal and what means ‘this’ to one person will mean ‘that’ to another.
While out and about take notice of sounds, smells, feelings, note them down in your psyche and log them there (and in a book if you wish) for future use… ie, I hear a squeal of car brakes, I log this in my mind as a danger signal. If just before leaving home I hear the squeal of brakes in my mind, I may choose to travel a different way that day.
Signs and symbols are very individual so it is important to work with what things mean to you. My dad hated freesia flowers as the smell made him think of funerals… me; I love the smell of these flowers – probably as they make me think of my dad.
When you think you are being presented with a sign, sit quietly for a while and ask, “what does this mean to me?” “Does this make me feel joyful”? Jot the idea’s that come to you in a little book, just go with the flow of thoughts that drift in. If you are more of a seer that a feeler try visualising traffic lights, what colour are they? Pretty obvious that you can go full steam ahead if the light is green, be somewhat cautious if amber and rethink the situation if the light is red.
As always, keep it light and have fun.
