The Universe is always finding ways to communicate with us but we very often don’t recognise or understand what is being said. It is constantly sending us messages through signs, warnings, our own intuition in order to help us navigate smoothly through life. To tap into this energy, we need to be open to receiving it and willing to hear it. We need to take note of recurring patterns and accept there is no such thing as coincidence. The more we tune into our intuition and inner world, the more clearly our dialogue with the universe becomes. Our Witch Twitch has worked with our guides to help get you started.
Take 30 to 60 seconds to look over the six images (above). Then close your eyes and relax. One image will stand out for you, emerge in your mind’s eye. This is the one that has a special meaning for you, a message from your guides. Read and take note of what they have to say. Seek and ye shall find...
Boots (top row left)
Now is not the time to bow to pressure. You are being urged to stick to your guns, to fight for what is right, even if it means upsetting your partner, boss, or work colleague. There will be times when you feel beleaguered, that you are climbing a mountain that has no summit. Don’t worry this will eventually pass and those very people who have been non-supportive will come around and listen to your reasoning.
Your integrity will be handsomely rewarded. However, be warned about getting all smug and I-told-you-so as this will backfire and send you back to square one. There’s only so many mountains that someone can climb.
Bottles (top row middle)
You may be feeling that you need to escape from it all. Questioning your very existence and life purpose. You are being urged to open yourself up to new possibilities and experiences, especially any that involve travel.
This is a good time to consider what it is you truly want in your world. Anything is possible right now and your guides will be working with you show the way. Look out for signs from them maybe a popped champagne cork, a forgotten old photo falling from a book, a feather in a strange place, a chance meeting. These will have meaning when they appear so take note of the time, the day, the location. A new path is calling.
Technology (top row right)
You may be feeling you are living a lie or that someone close to you is not revealing their true self. Maybe a relationship is suffering through a lack of trust and truth. It’s time to face up to what is really happening around you, to stop ignoring the niggling feelings that are signalling things are not all they appear.
The universe is giving you permission to snoop. If you think someone is hiding something from you get to work on finding out what it is. Hack their emails, their phone messages, hire a PI to follow them. You’ll either be proved right or wrong. Either way you’ll feel a whole lot better knowing that you know.
Paints (bottom row left)
You are being urged to bring new creativity into your life. This may be through taking up a new pursuit like drawing or painting, joining a writers’ group or signing up for a dance class. Rumba, anyone? Let your imagination be your guide and allow your creative juices to flow. By unlocking that secret space within you will find that your life runs more smoothly. You will feel more alive, more enriched and less bothered by the trivial things that so often nag you.
A sexy, more confident you will emerge, attracting a host of new opportunities, both in business and in love. Who knows you’ll feel that good about yourself you may even decide to become a life model. Nothing venture, nothing gained.
Forest (bottom row middle)
Hanging on to the past is severely damaging the gift that is the present. You are being asked to get out into nature to let these anchoring feelings go. Take a walk in the park, run along a beach, cycle through a woodland - anything to free yourself from urban constraints. The natural elements are waiting to cleanse your thoughts, enabling you to dream a brighter future into being.
Shake off old habits, ditch negative patterns of behaviour and, if needs be, kick to the curb anyone now surplus to your new requirements. There’s a fresh start to be explored. Do not let your own fear or that of others prevent you from moving on.
Theatre (bottom row right)
You may be experiencing plenty of drama in your world to which you may or may not have contributed. The problem is your energy is taking a bashing as a result of it and it could all end in tears, yours. You are being advised to step away from the situation, to release yourself from the conflict. An argument needs at least two players. Take your bow and exit stage left. You’ll feel a whole lot better once you’re in the wings, observing like a pro rather than performing as a diva.
You have a new role to play, one which may not be as dramatic but will certainly win you plaudits. Rise above the rabble and become the true star of the show.
