Messages from the Universe

Picture of the Universe and Infant Stars by Seven PortraitsHi All,

Last week I had some cool things happen. A string of what some would call coincidences and others would call fate. Me, I call them listening to what the Universe is telling me.

It started with a quote I came across by Alex Osborne, he is the guy that coined the term brainstorming.

“Creative ideas reside in people’s minds but are trapped by fear of rejection. Create a judgment-free environment and you’ll unleash a torrent of creativity.”

Those words really spoke to me. I have not done many things out of fear of rejection and I tend to judge others and myself way too much.

The next thing in my string of message from the Universe was a post I attempted to make on I wrote a nice plane factual ad about wanting to find other musicians interested in playing together with me and my Native American Flutes.

Just as I was about done with the add I click a link I had put in it to make sure the link worked and POOF… I lost the whole add. Some how when I hit the back button the form data was gone. All my work lost! I have done this very thing many many times and never once lost an ad.

Now I would normally have gotten mad, cussed Craig and his website for losing my work, told myself that the ad probably would not have gotten any response anyway given up and gone and done something else.

Instead I remembered the above quote, an in that instance realized that I should not judge harshly what had just happened. That the Universe was sending another message, telling me I should not post the ad I had just written. That it was not the right ad. Not that it was bad, or wouldn’t have worked, just that it was not the right ad.

So I listened and came back later to write a new ad. Here is that ad:

Native American Flute Player in search of…

My name is Ron and I play the Native American Flute.

I love this instrument. Its sound can be playful, joyous, or haunting. It grounds us; centers us. It lets us soar with the eagles. It speaks to our souls.

I have been playing for about four years now and have learned much about myself through my playing.

I am now being called to share with others. To play and explore the healing power of music. Share my wisdom and learn your wisdom.

I am looking for people to play with. People who want to explore new sounds. People who want to create music that speaks to the soul.

Style is not a major concern. It might be traditional native, new age mystic, good old country, down home blues, or improvisational jazz.

What does matter is wanting to do something amazing, wanting to touch people, wanting to share in the wonder of it all.

Are you such a person?

I await your reply.


P.S. If you are not familiar with the Native American Flute click this link to hear a song of mine, Under Tofino’s Spell

Now the above is nothing like my first lost ad. This ad speaks from my soul, it comes from a place of non-judgement. I was not thinking of what the response would be. I was not thinking of what people would think. I was just expressing who I am and what I want from the Universe.

I found my place of sacred non-judgement. This is a powerful place. You can do anything from this place. You can be anything you want. You can dream dreams that will amaze the world.

Oh and by the way the above link, to Under Tofino’s Spell, is the exact same link I lost my first post with, with this ad no POOF!

The next item in my string of messages from the Universe was a post on my Facebook Wall from my coach and good friend Molly Burke, The Queen of Confidence. She posted a note about a Native American Flute player named Mary Youngblood.

And as the Universe would have it, I had been reading about Mary just the day before.

Turns out Molly has a close friend that is related to Mary Youngblood. Small world? Or is the Universe really talking to me?

I choose the later. So since I have the Universe’s attention and it has mine. Here is a request from my sacred non-judgement place. I want to meet and play NAF with Mary Youngblood.

I will end this post with a question for you. What will happen when you find your sacred non-judgement place and open yourself to the messages the Universe is sending you?

I would love to hear about it.

    Hey Ron, how strange is the Universe. And how life changes for the better when we suddenly drop the human cloak and listen to our intuition. So much is happening suddenly to all of us that are paying attention, it is magical & empowering. I too am going through incredible change and opening up my heart to the Universe. The list is too long to write, suffice to say, I feel joy in my heart and see light in my soul. I have rediscovered my inner child. I am so happy for you. Embrace your abundance!

      Thank you so much Jen. Tis a wondrous place and time to be alive. To see the dawn of a new age where so many are waking up and seeing the possibilities.

  • Atticus Uncensored

    Love this (and giving me chills!)! I’ve been experiencing a lot of serendipity lately and I know it’s the universe leading me where I need to go…

    Letting go of the judgement (towards self, not usually to others) is a tough one for me, but something I’m working on. Atticus must interject to say that he has no issues with self-judgement!

    I’m going to take your advice and continue working towards that “sacred place of non-judgement”.

      Ooh chills, now that’s a compliment, thank you very much! :o )

    Hi Ron,
    so many things happen that we don’t understand but when time passes everything starts making sense. I am dreaming a lot of seemingly stupid things, I grind my teeth and I wake up all confused. I know now that I still have some unfinished things from the past that I still need to deal with.
    At the moment it feels weird because all I want is get past it but I know I have to listen!

    Your new ad sounds beautiful,

      Franziska I believe that when we come to this physical plane we consciously choose all that we will experience. The kicker is we forget we made our choices the moment we are born. We do this so that we can truly experience that which we choose to. So in everything there is a lesson to be learned. It can be hard to see the lesson at the moment but eventually, if we give ourselves permission and do not judge ourselves to harshly we will come to understand.

    Oh Love this, Ron! This is so true in so many ways. The universe is always speaking to us and helping us out. Sometimes I have a hard time trusting, but it is something I work on everyday of just letting go. I like the affirmation “I am safe in the universe as all of life loves and supports me.” It helps me every time to just trust. Thank you for this.

      Thank you Alara and I really like your affirmation, might just make use of that. And I am a Capricorn/Metal Rat so talk about having issues with trust and letting go, been there, still doing that! But I do see progress being made. The last couple years things have finally started to open up for me. I listen to the Universe and the cool thing… It listens back.
