It Was There All Along

Somehow there is theme music to our lives.  Have you noticed?

A song comes on the radio in a transition time, and we fall in love with it for what it feels like, catapulting our lives into a new phase.

Before I went back to work I was listening to Kashmir.  Before Kashmir it was Carry On My Wayward Son.  Before that it was Can’t Find My Way Home.

I can’t always tell you what it means when “the” song shows up.  It’s more like a signal that everything will be different soon.


Lately I feel like I transitioned into a transition.  The “next step” doesn’t feel very permanent.

Sometimes there is an astrological event that explains big transitions.  Other times a dream will foretell it.  Occasionally there is someone who mentions shifts in other dimensions, or releasing of energies, that I couldn’t tell you are true.  I could tell you that the event gets reported as if it belongs on the nightly news in lieu of the horrors that normally get reported there, because as crazy as it sounds that’s precisely how true it feels.

While I was home on my porch every day I could see a transition coming a mile off.  They were often vague.

Lately it is more like an old locomotive train, just chugging along,  but every time the whistle blows I jump a little.

When your days lose their joy and anticipation, you know there is an essential element missing, a void that has to be filled since nature abhors a void.

Mother, Wife, Employee, Partner, Maid, Cook, and Driver Just Wasn’t Enough!

Unexpectedly, the universe seemed to be sending me a new role.  I know some of you are experiencing the same thing.

It feels like a 50s restaurant where cars pull up and I come out on roller skates to take the order slip the universe gave them to bring to me.

I read the slip, fill the order, and skate on to the next car.  I’m not sure exactly how many people did this for me in the beginning but I have a firm sense that I will do service for exactly the same number of people who provided service to me.

How Do You Know When You’re Being Asked To Transition?

It’s nothing I control, I am just receptive because I am shown who’s who and what’s what.  Some kind of unconscious knowledge tells me what’s going on with the people who are sent to me.  When they start talking or write a comment, I know instantly it’s one of my orders up, I don’t know how.

Some of these folks have been around for a year or more and I communicate with them often, kind of like a guide on their trip.  Others are just a phone call and a,”Good luck.”  It’s all the new ones showing up that tip you off.

Your life may not outwardly, significantly change.  You don’t have to move, get a new job, get married or have a baby.

The Obvious Becomes Known To You

It’s kind of like the time when I realized how spirit guides show up.  I was expecting a full apparition or something obvious to appear right in front of my eyes.  Of course that’s not how it happens.  Most of the time you see them in your mind’s eye or you become aware of them through your senses.  It’s a subtle shift in energy and each one is different.

I can tell you when a ghost is walking through the house on it’s way somewhere else, or if a nasty spirit is sitting in my living room and has to be dispatched.

Likewise I know when an angel is near when they allow me to feel them.  I can tell the difference between the support of my own near angels by the dial up of the intensity, as compared to a visit from a powerful entity whose energy fills the room and then leaves, it’s like a jolt.

A guide feels different from an angel and I can tell you the difference not so much by the way they appear or what they communicate but because they feel different.

It must be some type of energy variance that I can’t explain to you except to say,”Oh that’s an angel, did you feel that love?” versus, “Your guide is here and says this, did you sense the support?”  It’s subtle and at the same time it’s plain as the nose on your face, if you know what you’re feeling for (since looking usually doesn’t do it, unless you’re walking around with your eyes closed or you are super tuned-in).

Are You In Training Or Transition?

I feel like I am training and have been for a long while.  Some things are skills you learn along the way.  Others are things you are meant to become, at the right time.

There is a feeling that I’d like to uphold.  You might equate it to the euphoria of endorphin release when you get done working out.  It feels like joy, I suppose, a “rightness” in being.

I know I am meant to feel that way more and more, because I have asked for it, and it just makes a lot more sense than how I was feeling before.

We don’t get compelled to ask for the impossible, we get hints of what is possible.  When we say yes to it, it comes on line more and more.

So that’s what I am shooting for.

How about you?

  1. Hi Julie

    So more food for thought…not sure at times if I am just waiting around for something big to ignite or is it just restlessness crying for a change. I feel as at times I am on the threshold of real enormous, make a difference breakthrough. One that could quickly relocate me and provide huge advantages to all whom we can help. I do believe anything is possible. But previous limiting believes is throwing up those days of doubt.

    Logic says it can happen and is possible, but then there is all those years of high hopes that lead to disappointments. The big difference now it is not all about me, it is about the impact I can make to others. That was never part of the equation before…so that is what now feels right.

    Is it when you give up the me, it becomes something that the universe will let happen?

    • Mary, I think when you realize you’re there in service, that is the beginning. I don’t think things usually happen overnight, like BOOM, here it is, you are deserving. It’s more like you need to start to believe that you are loved and deserving, and offer yourself in service – HOWEVER that comes – and things begin to chug out from the station…

  2. I was at my cabin last weekend and while sitting by the creek, I heard such a strong message of “trust” and “wait.” Since I’ve been feeling a bit antsy and impatient and even a little anxious lately, this was a clear message to me to sit back and chill. Not sure of the source, but the message is clear.

    • Galen, Sounds like that was one of your spirit guides – probably your primary guide – and your clairaudience is working just fine. Quite the energy you have going on at that cabin retreat!

  3. Trying to take it a day at a time 🙂 When I wonder about the where or what I keep getting some variation of ” It’s not time; your not ready yet; wait”. Some times it’s more frustrating than others, but I’m trying to see what lessons I’m collecting. Also, I’m noticing that I have many moments of joy and rightness in my days so that is always a good thing!

    • Stacie, It sure is! In fact, that’s mainly what it’s about. Interesting both you and Galen mentioned “wait”…maybe you’re waiting for the same thing. Wouldn’t surprise me. Not a bit.

  4. Julie, I was drawn like a magnet to this post when I read that bit about theme songs of our lives. I always have a song playing in the back of my mind but it’s more like a message of the moment than a long-term theme song. Sometimes, though, I choose one and deliberately play it to encourage me and keep my energy positive (like the old Mary Tyler Moore song’ You’re gonna make it after all.”)
    But that’s not what you’re talking about, really.
    I’m not sure if I’m in training or transition but if I had to guess I’d say the latter. My life has been moving so much faster since my son transitioned. I wish it would stop sometimes (and sometimes want to leave altogether) but I feel his support – energy that is specifically his, and it keeps me going.
    My intuition is picking up and even while at times I want to curl up in a ball and let the world go by, my energy continues to evolve. Strange.
    These are tumultuous times, aren’t they? 😮
    Lori Gosselin recently posted..Are You in Pain?My Profile

    • Hi Lori, Yes, tumultuous times indeed, and we haven’t seen the half of it yet. It’s just considering getting going.

      The fact is, you wouldn’t still be here if you didn’t have work yet to do. Based on the announcement you made today and the joy it gives you, I’d say you’re right where you are supposed to be (moving that way) and just remember – all is well.

  5. It’s mostly in dreams for me Julie. I meet beings in strange clothes, driving very odd vehicles and they talk about me as though I weren’t there. The last one I had was three people two women and a man and the women in white robes with hoods on were saying to the man, but she’s not ready yet and the man, dressed in grey and equally hooded so I couldn’t see any faces told them it was okay he’d prepare me!

    All I can say is I hope its for something flipping good.

    Other than that I come to a place in life where it feels as if it’s all at a standstill, there’s a sort of hush a quiet over everything and over the years I’ve learned not to feel frustrated with this stillness but recognize it as me about to take a leap of consciousness. It’s pretty cool.

    Love this topic.

    • Elle, You made me laugh out loud and snort at work! I am SURE it’s for something flipping good 🙂

      The only time I remember having a “they’re talking about me” dream was when I knew for sure it was my guides visiting me in my dream. It’s so interesting when we get visited in dreams AND let in on the discussion! You will have to let us in on it when you find out what you’re being prepared for 🙂

  6. Hi Julie,
    Normally, I’m just lurking and read your posts but this one struck me so I wanted to comment. I’m recently going through a transition – my work is taking off to a new level (getting ready to launch my first product!) and last month, I broke off a 5 year relationship.

    So I’m moving along with everything and then on the side of the road, I saw a deer that had been hit. It was so odd, I live deep in suburban land so how could a deer get near me. And then when I saw it, it looked so peaceful, no blood or anything, just like it was sleeping on the side of the road. I had this overwhelming feeling to pull over and sit with it until the county folks came along to take it away. I obviously didn’t as they would have taken me with them but that vision and the deer has stayed with me for a couple of weeks.

    Do you have any idea what that means? Why a deer and why can’t I shake this image? Is this a message about my transitions?

  7. Hi Julie,

    “Unexpectedly, the universe seemed to be sending me a new role. I know some of you are experiencing the same thing.” It is really interesting that I was led to this post from Mary Stephenson’s!

    I planned to write a book some time next year but somehow embarked on it earlier! It does seem like the Universe is sending me a new role. From a personal experience, I feel that the more relaxed and in the flow I become, the more fascinating things happen to me!

    Glad to be connected here, Julie!
