Finding Meaning Every Day

Last night I was up late looking for pink dungarees on Ebay, because, well, I figure a girl can never have enough pairs. I looked at the time, 1.47am to be precise and noticed my phone battery was on 66%. That's weird, I thought to myself, it was on 66% when I looked at it yesterday and the day before that. My phone is brand new, so it's not stuck on 66% battery and I'm not living in some parallel universe where it's permanently Groundhog Day, I just happened to look at the precise moment it was on 66% and noticed it, a few days in a row. (I've just noticed the word count is 566. Spooky) A few of my friends are really into messages from the universe, as am I, so I looked up 'angel numbers 66' and low and behold I received an exceedingly apt message:

Angel number 66 is a message from your angels to put your faith and trust in the benevolence of the Universe as your daily needs are continually met. The angels are assisting, guiding and supporting you with manifesting your goals, desires and wishes. Keep your thoughts positive when the Angel number 66 appears.

Pretty cool huh? You'll be noticing numbers all over the place now! So, onto Angels. I was introduced to Angels and angel cards many years ago by a lovely lady I used to work with. She was very spiritual and wise and had a deck of Diana Cooper's Angels of Light Cards that she kept at work for us to do to set us up for the day ahead. When she left, she gave them to me and I treasure them. They live in a little red velvet bag, which keeps out negative energy. They work like this:

  • Take the deck of cards in your hand and give them a tap. The tap clears the cards of any previous energy, ready for your reading. Make sure you do this whenever anyone else uses your deck, so that your reading isn't clouded by someone else's energy.

  • Put yourself into a calm, hush-like state and try and clear your mind, except for the question, or feeling you want the angels to help you with. (When getting the link to my post 'The Hush', I noticed there had been 66 views! OMG!)

  • Shuffle the cards, or fan them out and take the card you feel most drawn to, or the card that leaps out of the deck, which they quite often do!

  • Turn the card over and read the message; the Angels are sending you a thought, affirmation or mantra for the day. This is a simple, one card reading, but you can do more in depth ones if you feel so inclined.

I'm not somebody who wants to know my future, I don't go to church on the regular, I'm not a fan of organised religion and I don't enjoy being around people with rigid mindsets. I'm not a hippy, or particularly spiritual, I don't meditate and I never got on with Yoga, but messages from the Universe are something I find I can get on board with and embrace. I'm an anxious type of lady, an HSP (highly sensitive person) and empath, an INFP Myers Briggs personality type and I'm into self-development and positivity; angel cards only have positive messages and I've always found them to be a great comfort. There are angels out there looking out for us which is a lovely thing to believe in and I... erm... like, totes believe. My message for the day?

Wisdom; knowledge is learnt, but wisdom is the divine prompting within you. Your angel guidance is to connect to your still, quiet centre and listen to the wisdom of the soul. Then you will take decisions and act from your own infinite self. Affirmation; I listen to my wisdom.

My inner wisdom is telling me to snuggle up in bed and re-read The Secret today. Who am I to argue with Angels? A day of reading in bed it is.

Human beans are constantly searching for meaning. We want to know and be certain about everything. Some people put their faith entirely in science; everything is fact, can be seen, can be proven. Others believe wholeheartedly in God; their faith in a higher being sees them through. Some people like to know what's going to happen and put their trust in readings, Tarot and mediums. Some people, like me, believe in angels and the positivity they invoke. Whatever it is you find meaning in, I hope it brings you comfort and happiness. Which is ultimately what we are all searching for.
