How to Know if You're in the Flow with the Universe | Maven Mindset

Synchronicities 

Just thinking of someone and they call. Having a dream about a certain animal or object and they pop up in your waking life. Your intuition is on point without you even realizing it. You may even be experiencing the beautiful synchronicity that is spirit animals and angel numbers. And sometimes the synchronicities are not always awe inspiring. Sometimes the Universe likes to give us (and itself) a laugh or two whether this reminds us of our responsibilities, an item on our To-Do list, or something embarrassing we may have done.

Spirit Animals 

A Spirit Animal is an animal spirit who has a special message for you. You may dream about them, see yourself as this animal, feel a sacred connection to them, or even just run across the animal itself or it's image repeatedly. This is not a coincidence! This animal more than likely has a special and timely message for you. Here you can find more information as to What is a Spirit Animal and how to work with them.

Angel Numbers 

These are number sequences that you see over and over whether it be when looking at the clock, on license plates as your driving to work, phone numbers, lottery numbers - you name it! Examples of these are 11:11, 222, 333, 444, 555, 999, 646, 578, any repeating number sequence. These numbers are messages from your angels, guides, and the Universe. I have found them to be spot on for what I am experiencing in the moment. A message that I personally needed to hear. For example, while testing for my Psychic Medium certification, I was scared, and stressed out. I happened to look out of my hotel window and saw the number 299 on the top of a bus. I thought it quite odd as I caught sight of it just before it disappeared around a corner. I ran to look up the meaning and cried in amazement and gratitude. My favorite go-to site for angel number meanings is Angel Numbers - Joanne Sacred Scribes by Joanne Walmsley.

Easier to Manifest | Timely & Auspicious Opportunities

When you're in the flow with the Universe, you begin to see doors that are open for you which you may have missed before. The job you've been searching for may come your way. Perhaps you've been sending out the vibe to attract your tribe and you begin to meet people of a like vibration in random everyday happenings. Know that these opportunities may not come in the way you expect them to. You need some extra money to pay the bills and you have the chance to make some overtime cash.  You may need extra cash, but that doesn't mean you'll win the lottery, but the Universe does make a way for you to get what is needed. Be open to new experiences.

Raise in Vibration 

You've been realizing the connectedness of all things. You are beginning to feel and work with energy. As your vibration raises, your intuition becomes stronger. You put your focus on positivity, love, joy, and happiness. You're interested in learning more about spirituality and what your spiritual truths are.

Law of Attraction 

This is all about your thinking. Both positive and negative. How do you talk to yourself? Is it in a loving way or is the tone of voice more condescending? Having negative self-talk or thought patterns doesn't mean you are out of the flow. It is a part of the human experience. Be conscious of your thinking. When you see negative though patterns creeping in, re-channel and redirect your thoughts in that moment! It takes some practice, but it is possible. The more positively you think, the more blessings that come your way. Negativity is sticky - negative thoughts, actions, words, and deeds have a tendency to stick to your energy. Thereby, lowering your vibration. Your vibration is tied to the law of attraction. What you put out into the Universe is what you attract to you.

Reaffirming that you've Learned Old Lessons

The Universe may send a few old lessons your way, just to confirm you got the message the first go round. The situation or people may be different, but the lesson the same. Do you recognize this? What didn't work the first time? Now is your chance to correct it. To show the Universe you're serious. You have taken heed. That you've integrated the wisdom from previous happenings. This lets the Universe know that you're ready to move on to the next chapter, the next lesson of your spiritual development.

How do you know you're in the flow with the Universe? What signs have been given to you? What has been your experience thus far and how do you keep the link going?

Gratitude is the Attitude of the season lovely ones! When we show thanks for the many blessings in our lives, seen and unseen, past, present, or future, we open our hearts to possibilities, opportunities, forgiveness, and love. Getting in touch with our sense of gratitude and appreciation helps us to center and ground ourselves as well. In honor of that (and in honor of the gratitude I have for all of you!), here is a list I have created that is chock-full of ideas and journal prompts to help you deepen your sense of, as well as express, an attitude of gratitude this holiday season or any time of the year! Get your journal handy and dive on in! Be sure to use #gratitudeistheattitude on social media if you decide to share any discoveries you make on your journey of deepening your gratitude consciousness.

Ideas for Expressing Gratitude

  1. Keep a Gratitude Journal - take inventory of what you have to be grateful for whether that be daily, weekly, or monthly
  2. Volunteer your time and energy by working in an animal shelter, homeless shelter, soup kitchen, library, hospital, or retirement home. What is close to your heart
  3. Donate your clothes, money, or food to a charity, church, or noble cause
  4. Make a meal for family, friends, or someone going through a rough time with grief
  5. Tutor someone. Use your gifts to help another
  6. Charge a crystal with gratitude or make a gratitude crystal grid
  7. Write a Letter of thanks to yourself or someone who has greatly impacted your life in a positive manner
  8. Pay it Forward
  9. Simply say ‘Thank You’ to the random stranger who smiles, waves, compliments, or holds the door for you. Thank your guides and your angels for all they do!

  11. Light/Charge a Candle
  12. Create a Gratitude Vision Board
  13. Send healing and thanks to Mother Earth

  16. Acknowledge your privileges
  17. Make a gratitude wreath containing items representative of your gratefulness
  18. Don’t be afraid to have a conversation with someone less fortunate to let them know they matter too! A warm smile and a genuine ‘Hello, how are you?’ can work wonders for the spirit of both parties
  19. Do something for Mother Earth. Plant a tree, pick up trash in your local park, recycle
  20. Write affirmations of gratitude and carry them with you to read and say throughout the day
  21. Help children! Play with children. Read to children. Lead by positive example. Invite more pure, non-judgmental, childlike innocence into your soul.

Appreciation for the Journey on the Road to Awakening | Maven Mindset

woman-on-the-road-appreciation-for-journey-cover.jpg

Looking back at your journey thus far, I'm sure you've learned a lot along the way. You may wish you were better prepared before you embarked on this expedition of self-discovery, but you wouldn't trade your unique experience for anything. Here are some things I've learned thus far in my own journey, as well as what I have come to appreciate about the journey of soul and self-discovery, the road of awakening, and the journey of being your most authentic self...

You're learning what is of heartfelt importance to you. You're better at bringing your focus back to the present. To look back and see how far you've come. Don't sweat the small stuff! Let it go. In the grand scheme go things, is it really that big of a deal? Don't stress about all that you have left to do, dream about, and accomplish. You know it will happen when it's meant to, so there is no need to attach to outcomes.

You have an appreciation for the process of letting go. You've gotten better at releasing! YES! Although it is never easy, the more you do it, the better you become at surrendering. You realize that releasing is vital to the health of not only your immortal soul, but also your human body. You can recognize a good release by the way you stand taller, your shoulders relax, your neck muscles aren't as tight. Everything about your energy is just lighter!

You understand the value of slow steady growth. Is a weed that sprouts up over night stronger than a great oak? You take time to stop and smell the flowers. To relish in the experience. To sink-in to the journey. To allow the road, your soul purpose, to become part of the way you walk and talk. You're not in any rush - where is the fun in that? You'd rather savor every moment, every lesson along the way. That way you really learn them- maybe even the first time around! Strong foundations are important to you. You want your knowledge and experience to have a backbone. Something to stand on that speaks all for itself.

You've learned some warning signs - who and who not to trust. You have become a better judge of character (by getting to know yourself), but not judgmental - you just know who you would like to invite into your energy and who you'd rather keep at a bit of a distance. You know to pick your battles wisely. To not feed into another's negative behavior. To not get wrapped up in other people's drama - remember, not my circus, not my monkeys. You understand the insanely crazy value of setting boundaries and how it is a benefit to not only you, but also to others in your life as well.

You're getting better at that little thing called Self-Talk. You've been working on healing thoughts of a comparing nature. You understand that the grass really isn't always greener on the other side, but you are too busy focusing on pulling your own weeds, sowing seeds, and spreading fertilizer to notice your neighbor's lawn.  You've become better at freeing yourself from self-oppressing thoughts, self-sabotage, and lower vibrational patterns of behavior. You truly know the worth of thinking positively and the power of your own manifestation abilities!

You have a ton of excitement and hope for the future! You can over come anything and you know that now! You see all of the remnants of past challenges behind you - in a cloud of smoke, lying in the dust. You tore threw them like a hurricane (even though it may not have felt that way in the moment).  You are more sure of where you want to go, what you're looking for, and have a better idea of how to get it. You know where to look for opportunities. Understand the value and deep worth of self-expression. You're better able to determine when and when not to take action. You're more daring and ready for new adventures!

What have you learned on your journey of awakening thus far? What lessons are you currently grappling with? I'd love to hear your insights!
