A Message Through Leaves


I am down at my parent's home in Sunset Beach, NC, helping my father, who has been diagnosed with dementia. A couple of days ago, I was standing outside in a parking lot, and a leaf fell right into my hand. I thought that was pretty neat, as this rarely happens.

Later that day, I was bending over to adjust the faucet in the tub, and I looked down, and right in the middle of the tub there was a leaf. It was similar in size and shape to the first one. I don't know where it came from. Coincidental enough, right? So yesterday, I go into the ocean, and as I'm walking out meeting the waves, something in the water catches my eye. A small yellow-colored object. I reach down to pick it up - and miss. And a wave comes. But then I see it again, floating right in front of me. And I grab out of the ocean a small yellow piece of vinyl, shaped perfectly like a leaf - with a stem.

Well, now, I am a believer. And whatever spirit it is that I am now a believer in, is obviously trying to tell me something. I'm not sure I know what that is, but I do believe. Maybe that is is the message, to believe as in, "be leaf."

Any thoughts you have would be welcome.

It is funny how things work in this universe of ours, before I read your passage I had posted the following story on my Facebook page. It just literally flowed through me as I typed.

Then I came across this posting of yours...

Caught In the Whirlpool of Life:

One day I sat by a stream and just watched as the leaves were swept downstream. A brilliant red maple leaf was caught in a small whirlpool and everytime it would just about make it out of the pool and continue it's journey, the current would snatch it back again.

You could almost feel the struggle as the magnificent leaf tried desperatly to continue its' journey but only to held back by the pressure of its' surroundings.

Along came a man with a broad smile, he simply said, " precious one, continue your journey and show the world WHO YOU ARE..."

With that he reached in, guided the leaf out of the maelstrom and it continued on its' way. I could almost hear the faint whisper of "thank you" as the leaf passed me by.

When I looked back the man was nowhere to be seen, " you have guided another on their way, thank you..."

Anyway, just thought I would paste the story here

"...My peace I leave you..."

Yes James, I understand. I was just wondering who maybe the little sign could be from. At any rate, these little birds can come to me anytime and I will feel blessed. Sometimes I forget that you don't have all this information for strangers, as it feels like you are a friend of mine that already knows me, and I forget, and think that you should automatically know everything there is to know about me. Sorry Dave for walking into your posting. I hope you are continuing to find those leaves, or anything else symbolic that brings a smile to your face, and peace to your heart.

It came from a source of Love, pure love, the Divine.
You made a comment about your mother, so I asked if that was the only way she has communicated and they answer you have already seen. It must mean something to you, most of the time I can't make heads or tails when it is for another person because it does not relate to me.

Sorry Dave

The methods and form of communication from the Divine are different for everybody and how we see and interpret the dialogue is very different as well. For some it is the next song on the radio, for others it is a leaf floating by and for sme it is a dove that lands next to them.

The Divine is communicating with us all the time, just most people are still fast asleep spiritually and do not hear, see or feel what the answers are.

Enjoy your life with whatever you deem the Spirit to be, for the experience of the Divine is also different for each of us. Open your heart, mind and soul and let the love that is from the Source of ALL life, source of ALL love embrace you and I can promise you will never feel alone again.

Namaste to you our wonderful Brother and welcome to this spiritual ride we call "Awakened Life"

James, I haven't seen the little guy, but I listened on youtube, and that is the sound that was outside my window this morning. I was enjoying the sound this morning. Who is it that sends this to me?

I have just been asked to pass this along:

"...Do you see a little black and yellow bird around you frequently (a chickadee I believe)?..."

Every now and then I spy heart-shaped rocks, and somehow I feel that they are a little sign from my mom, just saying, "here I am." Just a little symbol that you can call your own, a little sign of peace and love I think.

We are always receiving guidance Dave, either from the Angels, our Guides or from the Higher Force itself, but as Aga says its important for us to recognize these signs. About a week ago I was going through a "down" phase and there was this particular hindi song that kept playing everywhere I went. In fact even on the radio station I was tuned to, it played twice in about 20 mins, how weird is that. When I did consiously turn my attention to that song - it said (translated) wherever you go, Ill follow you, I love you my Angel, I will never abandon you. It gave me goosbumps, I was being given a message from the Divine PERSONALLY. My mood lifted instantly. So ya, keep the eyes and ears open... One never knows where the next sign comes from.

Thank you for sharing your experience Dave. I like your interpretation of the coincidence. I think it's very important that we learned to recognize the subtle signs given to us by God.
