All About The Truth, Wherever You May Find It

Churchill said:

A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on. 

The truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end; there it is.

What is the truth?  Does it depend on your perspective?  Or is there one truth in all things?

I have to be honest, I tried hard to find something funny to write about this week to lighten the mood.  All I could come up with was a few funny (or inscrutable) search terms that people used to find A Clear Sign:

2 (???)

Signs of mediumship (ACS: this would be when dead people show up!)

Geisha silence

Veil thinning creatures

Ant bite penis enlargement

Speaking goat in dreams

Goat won’t eat my pants

What questions can I ask when interviewing Confucius

Why does chocolate keep you grounded

Back To The Moody Truth

It was a very busy week full of earthly stuff like taxes and accounting.  

It seemed like everywhere I turned people were mentioning that old issues from childhood were coming up to be cleared.  Now that they mentioned it, I noticed some old memories popping in here and there as well.

The energy seemed off, and I had no ideas.  No epiphanies, either.  The oddness was enough to have everyone in one of my intuitive groups ask each other what was up, because things suddenly seemed so uncharacteristically quiet.  We were getting uneasy in general, waiting for the pop or the shift to come along.

It felt like a big Pause through the weekend.  Good thinking weather.  Somewhere in the wonky energy where truth wanted to pop its head through, it felt like there might be a tide pool which contained some answers…but we were all too busy to put our finger on it just then.

“I Should Have Known” Moments

It occurred to me that it was the three-year anniversary of when the universe set me free from the 9-6  work world and said,”Get a clue.”  I had forgotten all about it.

You know those,”I should have known,” moments?  You look back and realize that all the information was available to you, to warn you or prepare you, but you either didn’t see it or you saw it but didn’t realize what it meant.

If you’d asked me three years ago,”Did you see it coming?” I probably would have said,”Yes, but.”  Yes but, it doesn’t make any sense.  Yes but, it’s not fair.  Yes but, I tried to get out but I couldn’t.

All of those things are flashing warning signs that you are about to get a giant kick in the ass from the universe.  You can look at it like a disaster and flail about, failing to understand.  Or, you can move along.  Some of us move quickly and some of us move slowly, but the one thing we must do is move.

If you don’t learn your lessons then you will continue to flail until you learn them, period.  It might be an easy lesson or it might not, but usually when something massively huge shifts in our lives and there is no success at recovery, it means you are in it for the duration.  For the most part, it’s up to you how much of it has to look like suffering and how much can be fun.

For me it was when I started to discover my intuition.

What Am I Doing Here? A Precursor To A Shift

History will be kind to me because I intend to write it.  – Churchill

Now it feels like things are turning for many people.  There is a major shift afoot.

I know there is something huge looming on the horizon.  I know it because my mind won’t settle enough for me to hear it yet.  I know it because the feedback and participation I have here has changed recently.  I know it because the moment I am about to speak my peace the other party has said the same exact thing I was just about to say to them, to me. I know it because I have seven (seven!) destiny points coming up around my profession.  When I was but an insurance agent and expected to die (or retire) there, I could not imagine what those could be.

Lots of truths waiting to come out and be examined in the light of day.  They don’t feel like easy ones.  All of the truths we’ve been processing are actually easy compared to what is about to hit, it seems, but on the other hand this also feels like a white canvas – ready for what we’re going to do next.

The interesting part about viewing the past when it’s in preparation to move forward is that we need to access the information in the correct way in order to see what it is we need to release.  Problem is, sometimes we just see truth through our very own lens.  Usually we’re prejudicial in our own favor, liking to remember where we were wronged, or perceiving an event or another person’s actions the way we took it at the time.  It can be difficult to get honest and see both sides of the equation.

Do Not Waste A Single Second More

God grant me the courage not to give up what I think is right even though I think it is hopeless. – Chester Nimitz

I do feel like something is changing but I don’t know what it is yet.

When I think about it, it seems that part of the reason why I have landed here is to help you before you get smacked in the head with a brick like I did, so you have some coping skills and some sense that what looks really ugly is sometimes a giant leg up.  That’s why I teach about forming a relationship with your spirit guides, angels and the rest of your spiritual team.  It’s also why I teach about the many ways your intuition can come through for you, so you know it when you see it and don’t dismiss it.

That’s why I share the absurdities of my daily life with you all.  Sharing it with you is better than thinking it over or writing it in a journal.  Knowing there is someone at the other end of the line who is smart and insightful just makes life so much easier to take.

The message I am getting is,”Do not waste time.  No room for nonsense, chit-chat, and people who can’t hear you.”

Last year someone asked me to weigh in on a philosophical question they were struggling with, and I spent a lot of time and energy with him.  The other day I noticed he had written a comment on another blog and it was the exact same iteration of the question.  He was STILL asking,”Why?”  He learned and heard exactly nothing, which was kind of disheartening.  So I’m not bothering anymore with things that are a waste of my time and energy, and neither should you.  

Likewise, if I’ve already told you something ten times and you refuse to listen, I will move on when the eleventh rolls around.

I will not intentionally write about things that everyone else is interested in and writing about, even if it’s been on my mind.  If someone else has covered it and covered it well, so be it.

I am here to do something…and it will unfold as it should, I’m sure.  Commentary on the world’s events is probably not one of the things.

How Do You Know What Your Truth Is?

I am one of those people who knows my truth.  That is probably the most reliable information that I have.  When I’m doing a reading, or if a friend asks for my advice, it just pops out like I knew it all along.  Sometimes they tell me,”Julie, that is a great idea!” and it surprises me, because I thought I was stating the obvious and they’d say,”Oh, I already thought of that.”

I think some people are born truth tellers.  It’s part of their soul contract, part of how they popped out.

Now when I meet someone who creates confusion for me, that’s one sure-fire way to know that I’ve met someone I have a soul contract with.  When you think,”Wait a second, was that me?  Or him?  Who’s right here?  Did he just turn that right around on me?” then you know you’re going to do a dance with him.

Having truth (usually) come easily to me doesn’t mean that I always understand or see the truth, or that I never lie to myself…we all do that sometimes.  Some truths just like to hide in the darkness.  Some people like to obfuscate.  Other people are your dance partners, and you might need a third-party honest opinion on what is really going on.  Choose wisely.

I had someone near and dear call A Clear Sign a name this week.  I am still feeling angry about it.  I was told what I should be doing with my time.  Sure it’s possible that they’re right and I’m wrong.  Undoubtedly I don’t see the truth in this matter clearly.  However I do know exactly how I feel about this place and I’m having my doubts about that person.  When someone triggers you, get really clear on your truth.

At Least Try To Listen…And Keep Your Opinions To Yourself

I find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest.  I do not judge the universe. – Dalai Lama

Any time there is a major world event, a disaster, a massive loss of life, it seems like the world will not shut off their televisions and radios.  Then everyone is exposed to the same news that takes a minute to tell, and days worth of conjecture from talking heads.

The thing is, there is always something awful going on somewhere in the world.  If you say how awful it was that one event happened, then someone is sure to pop up to say,”And that’s not all.  Maybe you haven’t heard about this much worse thing happening in some small corner of Africa…”

Then others take the opportunity to get political.

People talk about shutting off their televisions and someone else argues with them that it’s better not to be ignorant.

There is always something rotten in Denmark.  There is always someone hurting someone, somewhere in the world…and there always has been.

Everyone has their own truth.

My truth anyway is that you do not espouse spiritual or political platitudes to those who have just suffered an enormous loss.  If I were directly involved, I would not want to hear even my identical philosophy thrown back in my face.  It might be true, or it might not, but it feels grievously invasive to offer opinions to others in a moment of loss.

Sometimes I get all set to write something during a time of crisis because I feel like I should, but frankly, until the day comes when I have something to say that no one else has said, I will remain silent.

What Are YOU Doing Lately?

Have you felt the energy shifting?  Have memories been popping up for you to clear and heal them?  Have you been gunning for something, for change, full steam ahead?

I figure that Life is inherently risky.  We are here to give it all we’ve got.  It’s probably a good idea not to rest in a lazy way, at least not so often that it’s all you do.

Something about you makes you unique and outstanding – do you know what it is yet?  If yes, do it.  Be it.  Emanate it.  Let it ooze out of all your pores.  They say,”There’s no time like the present,” but this feels most urgent to me, like “the” moment is upon us, or around the next bend, and our thoughts and actions and way of being in the world are about to change.

Be the unique creator that you were born to be.  Find your truth.
