Listening to the Universe

The universe is always offering us signs to help us, we just need to slow down and pay attention.

“A Taurus New Moon is an especially fertile time to plant a seed of a new thought, a vision, a plan or a goal. Plant a literal seed to symbolize your plans and then nurture them to help them grow strong. “

Dark Moon

This past week I somehow have been drawn to the Be Here Now, Live in the present stance. I have listened to motivation speakers where letting go of ego is of utmost importance.

Truly wanting a change and asking the Universe for it.

The message I heard spoke too me.

So I paid attention. Yesterday afternoon, a sudden urge to stop smoking cigarettes became of much importance too me.

I have not had one cigarette since.

This dissociation from a life of addiction from numerous situations including drugs, alcohol, toxic relationships and now cigarettes is in one sense overwhelming.

“I am Ready” and for Universe to bless me with such optimism and clarity is such an IN THE Face sign too me.

I have tried to stop smoking many times. Now I realize you can want to stop,  but in actuality if you are not ready it just isn’t happening.

Than today’s Daily Om comes in my email box and another sign. It is dated May 20 th 2015 and is called “Dark Night of the Soul” I have written much on this very subject.

“The dark night of the soul invites us to fully recognize the confines of our egos’ identity.”
There’s the synchronicity again.

Egos.

More on this

Dark Night

Addiction grips you in that dark night and the pain is so very real.

Many years ago, I remember sobbing uncontrollably on some one’s shoulder. The kind of sobs and wailing’s that take your breath away.

For me, cigarettes filled a void for me. It was as if I have conquered all these demons, those dark nights and I smoke. So what. My life, my decision.

Now, I am thinking about my life, my grandchildren, my daughter. I want to stick around for great-grandchildren.

I want to be healthy.

I want the freedom of being smoke free.

My animals will love me more.

Such tiny lungs to endure my indiscretions of filling my home with chemicals from cigarette smoke.

A new journey for me.

Day 2.

The signs continue. I was looking up the posts that I had quoted from and up pops this:

2012 Retrogrades and Mutable Zodiac Signs — Daykeeper Journal


Who picks up the plot at this point? None other than the Fixed signs—Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. This group is known for longevity, work ethic and loyalty. They have more endurance than the Energizer Bunny, stubbornly plodding along through force of will or habit. Eventually, though, even the Fixed signs have to hand over the reins to the Mutables, the final sign in any season. Pity the Mutables, whose dual duty it is to integrate the season that is ending, while at the same time prepare for the season that is yet to come. Job qualifications include flexibility and juggling ability.
