Day 19 of Reverb14 - Signs and Symbols...

Today is Day 19 of Reverb14, hosted by the lovely Kat McNally who blogs at I Saw You Dancing. Check out the Reverb14 page HERE to join along and journal to the amazing prompts as we journal our way out of 2014...it's YOUR CHOICE to journal publicly or privately, as we all journal our way out of 2014 and plan for the new year ahead...

For our consideration, we have an interesting prompt from our hostess, Kat McNally. Here is what she shared with us for today:

 Sometimes I feel like an intrepid explorer through the lush, terrifying, vibrant jungle that is daily life. When I am open, I start to notice clues everywhere; clues which guide me to questions that, in turn, lead to answers. I sense the very real possibility that I am not navigating my way on my own

Recently I realised that I had been gravitating to hot pink. This realisation led me to a photo which, in turn, brought back some memories which then led me to understand something about a burden I'd been carrying for a long time. And in that discovery, I was freed.

Today, I invite you to consider: what sorts of signs and symbols have recurred for you in 2014? Think: repeating colours, shapes, people, sayings, music, images, ideas. Where could they possibly be leading you?

As someone who loves symbols and looks for signs of guidance in her life, this prompt certainly spoke to me!

And I've been seeing some signs recur in my life this past year...

As I've mentioned in a previous post, it feels like I've been trying so hard to make certain things happen in my life and one of them is trying to maintain some old friendships, but it looks more and more as though I am doing most of the work to keep these relationships going and all the work is getting to me.

When I expressed my intention during August Moon to find more like-minded creatives to connect with, opportunities dropped out of the sky and into my lap like so many raindrops for a parched soul!

These connections have begun online and they include mail art, something I enjoy and have been wanting more of in my life. After all, who doesn't enjoy receiving colorful mail in the mailbox instead of tired old advertisements and bills?!?

And these connections feel effortless...and fun...and full of art-full joy...

I have been seeing these signs for awhile now and it's time for me to acknowledge them so I can make more space to allow more of these effortless opportunities to enter my life.

As for other signs and symbols, I can say that the color BLUE has been making it's presence known to me, a color that I don't normally wear or have in my environment often.

Methinks the symbology of BLUE is that I could also use a little more CALM and REST in my life, and THAT is a sign I am willing to heed...and so I shall!

Skirt of recycled t-shirts made in various shades of calm, cool blue - I love wearing this new skirt!
