Follow the Guidance of the Universe
Living Our Deeper Song
The Creative in me honors the Creative in you!
The wise universe gives us nudges all day long. We just don’t always pay attention. Notice what you have been doing and pay attention to what is working and what is not. Did something unexpected show up? Or is your path unfolding in the direction you want to go? What surprises have you received that make you want to explore in a new direction? All those unfolding nudges from the Universe will certainly influence the form your day takes.
When a major change is unfolding, I get a feeling and that’s pretty much all I get to work with. So my job is to pay attention to the continual nudges I get from the universe and interpret them. It might be an idea. It might be an opportunity. It might be something someone says. It often is a complete thought that pops into my head with an urgency to be explored. I need to pay attention because that is the universe talking to me, giving me the signs of what is next.
Go exploring when an idea appeals to you. Check it out a little further and figure out whether it’s a really good thing to do or just a maybe thing to do. Notice what is yours to do and what someone else has to do. Make your choice accordingly.
Some signs are subtle and some pop you in the head. Pay attention to both – and everything in between.
When an idea calls to you, explore it a little bit to see whether it’s an actual door opening to a new adventure or just a small insight you need to help you on your current path. Carry with you an overall picture of where you are choosing to go. And then follow the nudges both large and small that take you there.
Notice the signs. Make your choice. And change directions as you are called to do. Follow the ever-present guidance of the universe.
DEEPER SONG AFFIRMATION
I pay attention to the insights and nudges and openings the universe provides me and I explore until I know where the idea fits into my life.
DEEPER SONG PROCESS
- Perhaps use your meditation time as a moment in your day in which you explore and notice both large and small nudges the universe has provided you.
- Take time to consider how they feel and what they look like and where they might take you. Use your imagination and go exploring to see what calls to you.
- Learn to interpret the signs and signals and nudges from the universe.
Write A Song For Your Meditation Practice
When I first began to journey I always drummed to the directions. Then I used drumming as a catalyst for writing a small song to each of the directions. I simply let them evolve. I sang what showed up and I sang what I remembered and gradually ended up with a series of songs that open and close my drumming meditation and also honor the directions. What kind of songs will you compose and what will you compose them for?
Filter Your Choices
I love to learn so I am tempted by many more classes than I possibly could and should take. How do you filter your choices when you are an enthusiastic learner?
Sometimes it is as easy as being full up. I could not take another class if I wanted to because I’m already taking whatever number seems to fill me up.
Attending Summit Sessions is a good way to get to know the topic and some of the teachers. I have attended many Shamanic Summits and Qigong Summits and whatever ones call to me and allow me to explore the topic. They are free on the Shift Network and Sounds True and other platforms and it’s a good way to explore a topic that peaks your curiosity.
Learn to know if you are full up but most of all learn to know if a particular course or a teacher or a book will take you in the direction you have chosen to go. I read an entire book on astrology because my friend likes astrology. I am not a detail person and it was so out of my league it was unbelievable. So I know not to go exploring in that direction except if someone wants to interpret it for me. But I’m not gonna be the one interpreting it.
On the other hand, I’m into self-healing. So I’m on my sixth Qigong class. Taking a class is not the same as doing the work. So when you go exploring, do the work and apply it and explore it enough to know if it is a direction you want to go.
I attended a Sound Healing Summit enough to understand it a bit and add a small bit to my daily self-healing practice but I also know that it is not something I am going to pursue. It’s important to keep learning. The world changes so rapidly, it can be a bit hard for us to keep up.
What do you need to learn right now that will enrich your life experience on any level – physical, emotional, spiritual? Who is the teacher you want to learn fromright now and where do you find his or her courses? The Shift Network and Sounds True are two places that I know that offer really good classes. You might get on their lists. There are a lot of free offerings by many people, free talks, free meditations, free experiences. When a topic interests you, take time to go exploring and see how and if and when it will fit into your life. Then do that.

More Things Than Surfaces
I have a new altar bowl and rattle coming that a friend made for me out of clay and I have to do some thoughtful and major rearranging because I definitely have more things than surfaces.
One of the ideas I had a long time ago was to have seasonal boxes of things that I put out. Sort of like putting up holiday decorations except changing the surfaces to honor the seasons or whatever purpose you thought to change them for so you get to use everything fully at some point during the year. So I have this very full altar space and I have two major pieces coming to go on it and I have to rethink things. What do you do when you have more things than surfaces?
===HOW TO BE A STRONG CONTRIBUTING MEMBER OF THE DIVERSE CIRCLE OF LIGHT BEINGS===
I have wonderful friends. They are online and we talk regularly on Zoom and it is very fulfilling. One of my friends mentioned her interest in perhaps starting a small shamanic journey group like one the two of us had experienced before. And I realize how that would enrich my life. I would join in a minute. And I would meet people that she knows and has relationships with. It’s a possibility. Who would you gather together and for what purpose?
As we refine our interest, we have to look further afield for people who are at our level on a topic we actively pursue or people who want to learn new things that we want to learn. We may have to go searching for them. Who would you gather together for a monthly call to exchange ideas? To support each other? I have a small group like that and we take turns leading a segment as well as have the opportunity to have in-depth conversations with like-minded people. This is not an accountability group, it is a group of friends going in the same direction. Who would you invite into your group and will you do it?

The Power of Aligned Energy
All four of us were healers on the Zoom call. We each shared and then one member began to lead us in a healing. It was very powerful.
What I came to understand was that the experience was magnified by the presence of each of us as focused experienced healers. We were each contributing to the overall energy of the experience.
I have individual relationships with each of these women but it was interesting to have our collective energy focused in one direction and feel the power of that collective alignment. The increased power we experienced was because we were fully engaged and we were all experienced focused and active healers.
Next time you’re with someone you are close to, notice what changes with the combined energy. What it amplifies. What it magnifies. All because the two of you are focused in the same direction, on one particular topic. It’s like brainstorming an idea where the creativity flows and the ideas get bigger and more imaginative and more expensive.
Who do you have in your life who helps you expand the reach of your energy and intention? Spend more time with them. Find others walking a path similar to yours and join together to make it a deeper experience for each of you.

The Power Of Intention
We were four powerful healers focused on self-healing.
We were four powerful healers focused on self-healing. As we worked, the energy expanded. It deepened and grew more powerful.
