Signs of Sadness to Significance

Whenever life’s unexpected obstacles attempt to get in my way and ruin my vibe I will begin to see warning signs. I can either choose to ignore these subtle hints and allow myself to slowly trickle down to a very familiar place that I’d rather not return to or I can pay close attention to what is being shown to me to stay balanced.



I’ve recently let my emotions get the best of me and have allowed certain situations that are out of my control consume my thoughts and behaviors. How did I let this happen? I’ve been in this place one too many times before and never intended to let myself feel this badly ever again. This is what happens when you try to control things that aren’t any of your business. Even the most spiritually driven individuals can have downfalls if they stop paying attention to the signs from the universe.



I started to feel lost and disconnected once again. My mood was off, I was beginning to lose my energy, sense of humor as well as interest in the things I love most. I was losing my way.

I felt my memory begin to slip as I let my depression creep in and get the best of me. Where did this come from? I have no reason to feel sad. Things were going really well in my life. Why was this happening to me?


I then realized why I hadn’t been feeling like myself. I had become complacent and stopped applying the many spiritual lessons learned through the years and just like that, I allowed the energy vampires to rent space in my head and began to fall right back to a place that I did not belong. Old behaviors were starting to resurface and I didn’t like who I was becoming or how I behaving.


After being in this dreadful place for about a month or two I decided to take charge of my emotions and get back to having feelings of peace and serenity once again. The amazing thing about energy work is that you don’t have to start from square one to feel good all over again because once you learn how to work with and charge your energy centers, you’re able to dive right back in and pick up right where you left off. It's kind of like riding a bike. A little shaky at first but it all comes racing right back to you and you’ll be coasting right along in no time.




I applied my favorite essential oil Valor to the back of my neck and took a trip to a very special place to me that always seems to have the power to elevate my mood, Beavertail State Park in Jamestown, Rhode Island. Nothing compares to feeling the intense energies of the ocean. The place that will always bring me back to center. I chose Valor because it is a special blend that was formulated to balance energies and instill courage, confidence, and self esteem. It helps the body self-correct its balance and alignment. Valor is a beautiful synergy of Spruce, Rosewood, Blue Tansy and Frankincense essential oils and it smells absolutely amazing. This has been my go to oil in times of need for quite some time now.



I was starting to feel like myself again and new signs were beginning to appear to me. One day as I was driving on the highway I noticed the speedometer in my car at 22,022 and then shortly after that at 22,222. I also happened to glance over at the clock at 2:22! What was this trying to tell me? I’ve always been a fan of numbers and often turn to the Sacred Scribes Angel Numbers website to seek the meaning behind these types of messages. I read that when you see the recurring Angel number 2 it is a message for you to have faith, trust and courage as your prayers are manifesting in your life, even if it’s not obvious yet and that things are going to turn out for the highest good. This indicates that newly planted ideas were beginning to take form and grow into new reality for me. This was a positive sign letting me know that I was headed in the right direction. Later that evening I had another surprise when a dragonfly appeared on the window screen.

Dragonflies symbolize wisdom, change, transformation, light and adaptability in life. They show up in people’s lives to remind them that they need to bring a lightness and joy back to their life. Every time I see one of these beautiful creatures I think of my Grammy in heaven. It reminds me that she’s looking down and watching over me in times of need, letting me know that I’m never alone.


Having these experiences finally gave me the much needed motivation to open up my laptop once again and begin writing this blog hoping for it to reach the person it was intended for.
