“Breathe and be
She whispers to me,
Fall back from your thoughts
And you may see,
Surrender and open your heart
You are filled and flowing with
Love and light energy,
We are all connected in oneness
Breathe and be
She whispers to me."
- Angela O'Brien-Greywitt
Upon waking yesterday morning, everything is right with my soul and the numbers 534 were in my head. This was a powerful message from my dreams. I needed to dig deeper for meaning. The message is a warm embrace from the universe and my angels. After a restless night. I did not sleep well the night before. Our beloved Vizsla, Rosie, our canine angel, has an incredible habit of waking us up in the middle of the night and wants to go outside. She has trained us well...we oblige her wishes and one of us will sleepwalk our way down the stairs to let her out. Once I wake up and let her out and climb back into bed, sleep eludes me.
We all know nights where the mental chatter is available and ready to offer up anything and everything that has ever happened to you. You know what I am talking about. The incessant thought patterns, the ruminating, what meditators refer to as the “monkey mind”. Have you ever stopped and listened to your mind? It is having a conversation from both sides. It is the observer and the observed. When I have trouble getting back to sleep I try a myriad of things. I read something inspiring. I pray. I meditate. I breathe deeply and count backwards from 100. Inhale 100, exhale 99, inhale 98, exhale 97...and with a little luck, I will be asleep before I reach 0.
I glance at the clock to see what time it is. I believe our spirit guides or our guardian angels, try to get our attention when we are the quietest...usually in the wee hours of the night. I look up the meaning of the angel numbers from the time on the clock. There are several sites with messages and number meanings from angels at your fingertips. That is, if you have a smartphone within reach...I am betting most of you do. Step into the unlimited possibilities and trust the unknown mysteries in the unseen world of the angels and their clever ways of getting our attention.
Begin to notice the messages from your angels. It might be a vanity license plate that grabs your attention. It could be finding a white feather you happen upon out of nowhere. If you keep seeing the same numbers over and over...or you wake up at the same time in the middle of the night...or you wake up with numbers in your mind as I did, 534, look up the meanings and see if there is a message for you. You might be pleasantly surprised to know that there is a message just for you. We are not separate from the source of existence. You are never alone. You always have your guardian angels with you. They are trying very hard to get your attention. Remember humans don’t like to be told what to do. You have free will. Angels need to be asked for their help they will not step in to help you, unless you ask. Keep asking. Believe me. They are there. There are signs everywhere. It's up to us to pay attention to the subtle signs all around.
Hmmmm, 534. I type angel numbers 534 into Google search and messages pop up. This is an abbreviated version. ..the number 5 resonates with the message to be true to myself, personal freedom, and life lessons. The number 3 resonates with courage, forgiveness, manifesting skills, talents and guidance from ascended masters. The number 4 has the energies of the Archangels, goals, and hard work. The angels give me the green light to pursue my heart and soul’s desires. Each number has a certain vibration and meaning and the numbers 534 resonate with my soul’s desire.
I started searching for spiritual guidance in my teenage years. I read many spiritual books. I attended classes. I became a yoga and meditation teacher in my 40’s. I have had readings by mediums, astrologers, channeled messages of divine wisdom and guidance from the 12 Archangels. The messages they shared were similar. You are an old soul. Share your wisdom with humanity. Teach. I was told that I have been an open channel to the angelic realm and spirit world my whole life. The angels ask...have you considered writing? Write a blog. I am willing. I am listening. I am writing a blog.
I have been slowly heeding their insights and my inner knowing. I am writing and learning to open up to the vulnerability of sharing my journey. My personal story of listening to my inner voice and to ask my angels, guides, ascended masters for continued guidance and support, works. Believe me, it has taken years to listen to those murmurs deep within my soul. The voice is tiny. A nudge to go this way or that way. I urge you to honor those murmurs. Get quiet and listen to what ignites your soul. The heart is the voice of the soul.
This year with Covid, the opportunity to go “within” has been an invitation to do just that. We do not always look at the most challenging experiences in our lives as gifts. All of the things that have preoccupied my life, my attention, have been taken away one by one. The ability to gather anywhere with anyone…working, attending classes, going to restaurants, meeting family or friends for meals, coffee or cocktails, shopping, getting hair cut, yoga classes, volunteering, concerts, traveling, all gatherings, ended. There were many businesses closed...my husband and son’s included. I was caring for my grandchildren...that stopped. I have had grandchildren born during this time in my life that I have yet to meet. I was not visiting with friends or family. Life has changed dramatically. If ever there was a time for allowing things to unfold, that time is now. The timing was ripe for change. Meditation. A summons if you will, to get to know myself by journeying inward.
I joined a daily group meditation. It has enriched my life and deepened my meditation practice. It has opened me up in a way I have only read about and never fully experienced. Up until the Covid pandemic and quarantine, meditation had not been as consistent of a practice in my life as I wanted. I would practice yoga. I would practice meditation. I understand their healing powers. I was now saying, “YES” to practicing daily. Breathing deeply together with a group has allowed me heartfelt access to my soul. I have experienced a deeper sense of calm, peace, love and connection to all life, during Covid.
There are many unknowns during this time and challenges to face. Meditation is a gift to yourself to tap into the vastness inside of you. Find what ignites your soul. You will never regret listening to that inner guidance. You are not alone. The angelic realm and all of the mysteries of the universe are supporting you. Breath is our spirit. Breath is life. It is an opening and a connection to life and all there is. Breath is a prayer. Breathe into your life and see what unfolds.
