Earlier today I shared on Facebook a Swedish song called “Goliat” of an artist I admire very much. Goliat by Laleh I found these lyrics were very meaningful to me at this time and I thought about them a lot on this day for I was reflecting a few things from some sessions and conversations with different people. For many of us when we were young kids, we had big dreams, hearts full of hope and our trust was made of gold. This enthusiasm for life in the early years is so present, for then we are much more connected with our beloved soul (and the plans the soul has for this life). We say things when we are young that sound very bold. I remember one time at school a teacher asked us during a lesson what we are going to do when we have grown up. When it was my turn, I said: “I am going to change the world.” I had no idea why I said it, it just came out of my mouth. I only remember this incident because of the response of my teacher. My teacher laughed out loud at me and said: “First you have to change yourself.” Now as an adult, I fully agree of course that all change begins with ourselves. I realized this actually quite early, I learned about it from one of my childhood favorite musicians: Michael Jackson, through the song “Man in the mirror”. But at that time in the classroom I did not understand what my teacher said, why and the whole reaction. I did not know myself and my weakness enough yet back then, to realize that there is something to improve. I was pretty optimistic and had big visions for the earth. The answer of my teacher was challenging in many ways. But I moved on with life and found my path, which I truly believe, I was meant to walk. When we are small and more connected to our soul, we have a natural courage that comes from deep inside and that helps us to master many lessons on the way. We sometimes say things to people or make promises that truly guide our way. When we grow up, we seem to lose many of these qualities. I often hear people talking about their dreams, hopes, goals and visions and watch them NOT following them. And I wonder... What is it, that comes between us and our soul vision? What is it, that causes that constant battle between the mind and soul? Why do we sometimes lose it all and forget even the promises we made? What happens to us on earth that we truly completely forget what we came for, what we planned when we were in the Akashic Records designing our next clue? The only response is that we carry Soul, Heart, Mind and body Blockages (karma) from the past, negative information or programs that can activate at any time and create a hurdle as large as a Goliath. The thing is that we are at the same time actually completely equipped to take exactly that hurdle and win the battle. We truly have it all. All the power, the wisdom, the skills are within us and we all have remarkable capabilities to master any challenge in life. We will be always confronted with Goliaths but only at that size we can cope with. We all can do it and no matter what it is, we have to deal with, the power is within. We also have to remember the universe is NOT cruel. It’s not punishing us or presenting us with something we did not chose. We chose it all. We create everything. It’s us. This sounds like a lot of responsibility and of course it is ...and the beauty is: we have freedom to chose. Our mind and especially the ego often believe different things and create fear and worries, desires and attachments which make us suffer. While our souls and the entire universe only want the best for us, for everyone involved and entire planet earth. So when we are in a situation where we feel stuck, maybe we are in great pain or in a place where we don’t feel at all... It’s important to know, that we are the ones who can change it all, anytime. Our life can completely transform with one single decision, step, choice we take at a single moment in life. Just knowing this, is a huge motivator itself. I personally found, that we can mobilize incredible resources within ourselves and take mind blowing steps, when we remember something (one single thing) that it’s worth fighting for. It could be a very high goal like achieving something significant on the spiritual journey, or the knowing that we have to build something unique in the material world, the knowing that we have to contribute to a major humanitarian project with our skills or manifest a flourishing company that will serve in many ways...one goal could be to create a full filing relationship with a beautiful person we dreamed of when we were a kid. What ever it is, we have to remember this vision and hold it in our hearts, like a compass to guide our way. The vision, courage, trust and heavens grace will always empower us to move on. When we wish to remove the hurdle we can apply spiritual tools which efficiently take care of blockages of any kind like for example the universal meditation for forgiveness. Please enjoy a guided practice here... Universal Meditation For Forgiveness There is much more we can do to stay on track and I will share shortly. For now may you enjoy another meaningful song that I will explain another time... Somewhere only we know Thank you. With Love Magdalena https://instagram.com/thecitymonkmk?igshid=17v2hdqvr3q1a
Somewhere only we know what is the very best for us and which way to go but sometimes we have doubts and we refuse to believe our own knowing. We are stuck in our illusions, programming, fears and false beliefs about ourselves and our life. We could be clinging to the past (experiences) for many good reasons and trying to ignore all signs in a new direction. When a soul gets off the course a lot of things happen in the soul realm and the spiritual guides, protectors, ancestors and most likely a very special companion called "Tian Ming" in the TAO SCIENCE, become very active to alert us, awaken our mind and help us to get back on track. They do this, because they love us and because we have asked them for that before we came into our human embodiment. We have agreements with them and especially Tian Ming, who is a saint assigned to us to help us to accomplish our life tasks, is very committed to help us to do what we came for. These agreements for support are truly for our greatest best, for our protection and our growth. As souls we sit in the soul realm in a place called AKASHA RECORDS for a while and make our plans for our future life on earth, or somewhere else. We make them with the help of the heavens team according to our soul standing, our frequency and vibration and the amount of HEAVENS VIRTUE on our heavens bank account, which was offered to us for our previous services. All our services are recorded in the Akashic Records. These records are also called karma. When our souls come to earth they have plans, sometimes really huge ones and they have the best intentions for growth and the best service they can offer. They also have free will and as human we have a mind that actually functions like a hard disk on a computer and needs to be programmed first. Our human mind does not know in the beginning about all the plans our souls have. Most likely it does not remember who we truly are, where we came from and what for... The mind needs to learn and be filled with information and educated by the soul about the steps to take in life. Some minds and souls of people work pretty well together. They are aligned and in great harmony. The soul makes a request, provides an idea or inspiration and the mind follows. It sends the impulse to our body to do what is needed: move the fingers or the legs, pick up the phone and make a call, get dressed or go to sleep. When minds and bodies follow what the soul wants, all is good. We might feel a deep sense of happiness and joy, peace, harmony and great fulfillment in the things we do and the ways we live. This is a wonderful place to be and I like to call it the "real comfort zone". Internally we might experience a real balance between security and excitement: yin yang balance and we don't really think about changing anything. Then there is also what is called "fake comfort zone". This condition is a pretty common thing and people tend to mistake it for the real comfort zone as the human beings are programmed in this way at this time on earth. In this zone people feel actually not really fulfilled for example with what they do for living , where they live, with the friends they have or with whom they are in a relationship. They feel desires for other things, constantly dream about an other job or have phantasies about a partnership with someone else. They might feel a deep yearning for education or spiritual growth and input, for more inspiration, creativity or excitement. They might feel bored and trapped or too stressed and overwhelmed with everything that happens in their life. These feelings are already clear signs from the soul world. They feel this way, cause the soul feels this way. The soul has decided to move on, to change something, to improve or to accomplish a major next step on the soul journey and tries to awaken the mind to gain new understanding and clarity about the next steps. When the mind does not respond fast enough, this is when heavens teams respond and offer support in all ways. This is when they begin to send signs, which are truly heavenly directed and mind blowing. They have to be mind blowing, to hit and awaken the mind. There is an infinite number of possible signs and they are actually individually designed, so that the individual might really comprehend them with the unique mind as everyone is truly very different. Signs could be gentle, soft and kind, have "yin-character" and they could be strong and truly forceful, more yang, like for example an accident or mishap. There could be very clear warning signs and those who shaken objects or others in front of us, so we get the message. Signs are really a very common way how the universe communicates with earthly beings. Not all are aware of this and respond to the signs and message from the soul realm. Some minds are really deeply asleep and like to reject things like that, put it down, make fun of it or simply deny to have been experiencing signs. TYPES OF SIGNS There are signs that are for the individual people as well as those for the global consciousness which could happen publicly or not but are meant to inform huge masses about something. I have been personally receiving and experiencing all kinds of signs probably since my early childhood. I have been experiencing how well the universe knows me and how it operates to give me all kinds of signs that I will comprehend and follow. I am also very sure that I have missed countless of them and that the universe must have been repeating many of them constantly until I finally listened. When we get signs and ignore them or misinterpret them, we will receive other and stronger signs. Signs can be also given when we actually consciously request for them. We can ask simply the universe or our guides, we can ask souls of beloved ones in the soul realm or on earth and we can ask our own soul. We can ask the souls of other people we know and wish to have an answer from to deliver it to us through signs. You will find a link below how to make a request for signs. REPEATERS In the past few weeks I have been constantly receiving very significant signs to help me to heal from the past, to put me on my new path and to empower me to serve in my field in the very best way I can at this time. I have been receiving many sweet and gentle reminders that made my heart dance and some a little more intense ones. In last December for example, I was sitting in a café for lunch in a village about an hour from my home and doing some soul communication there and asking for guidance for certain things related to my service. I was picking some Tarot cards and reflecting upon them. I picked a card that was very clearly pointing to what I should do next but my mind started to argue and wonder. I had huge resistance coming up when I was told to focus on that in the near future and negative thoughts like: why should I do that…, people don't want to hear about that...and more... In the moment when I was just questioning everything, I got the message directly through my spiritual channels, that I have to do it, because I would bring a lot of hope, healing and light to the ones who need it...Right in that moment the big grocery store down on the street, that I could see from above, just lit on all their lights and advertisements outside. This was a clear sign in my view and the end of my arguments with the soul world. A few days after I simply stood up in the morning and did what heaven asked me to do, which was to record videos about my healing path of the condition I suffer from called "endometriosis" and to post it on a new channel. Other signs related to my task of bringing the wisdom and knowledge and spiritual perspective about healing of trauma and codependency were offered to me "on repeat" over a longer period of time. Until the day where I was doing a bigger cleaning before Christmas, which included the windows, when I broke a very beautiful birthday gift from a dear friend. It was a crystal bird that stood for my soul mate and our connection. The moment the bird felt to the ground, my heart stood still and my mind did not like the cracking sound at all. Luckily when I picked it up, I saw that I could fix it again. At the same time I clearly knew, this was a significant message from my soul mate and he told me that he really needs my help at this time,he needs to understand co-dependency deeper. He said he broke his wings a while ago and does not know how to get himself together and out of the struggle he is. He said, he wants to fly again but one can spread a broken wing. I again felt some blockages coming up within me and I had doubts about what to do with this request. Things have not been easy at all in the recent past for us, so I was concerned to make mistakes. Heaven did not give up on us and the very next day, when I went on my Instagram account, the first thing I saw, was a beautiful painting of one of my favorite artists, which you can see below… It confirmed my previous messages in a mind blowing way…so I went on and on the same day, which was December 24th and I accomplished what I was asked for to do. Signs are a very powerful way for communication between heaven and earth and amongst souls. Sometimes something in the house will fall down or apart or disappear, so we hear what heaven or other souls want to express to us. One of my very recent experiences this week was that the cover of the lamp on the ceiling in my bathroom felt down while I was in the shower. I was not even close to it. Luckily it felt on a thick carpet and did not break but this incident was a clear message to me, while I was thinking about a certain task I was postponing for very long... When this happened, I knew it was a kind reminder to get it done and I knew why. HOW TO KNOW IF WE ARE RECEIVING A SIGN From my personal experience, when we are receiving a sign, we simply know it. We could have a feeling like something "hit" us. I often feel actually a strong energy that hits me in my heart center or crown and moves through me in a moment of a sign. When we are not so sensitive to energy, we might still have a sensation, a feeling or a physical response like a relief (of tension). On the mental level we might have a beam of clarity, an epiphany and deep understanding of a matter we did not have before. We could really sense stress or burden leaving us as well feel excitement, joy, love and peace. For me, I mostly feel a very profound peace, followed by gratitude which really often comes faster than my mind can think. I feel the peace also when "negative" messages are revealed and for me this peace is an indicator that I am on the right path or that everything is going to be alright no matter what challenge is showing up now. Often just in the moment of the realization of a sign it seems like the time and the universe stands still and all is very sharp and present. I also feel inspired and filled with hope when I receive signs. Its important to know that the message of the signs is always determined by the recipient. Like the lyrics of songs. They might have meant something very different to the artist when they wrote it but when we listen to it, we might have our own very personal experience and meaning of it. This is the beauty of art. Two people could receive exactly the same sign but it could mean something completely different to each one of them. We can not really argue or discuss the meaning of the signs. We simply know it in our hearts. We can share with others and ask for their opinion but the experience is ours, no matter what they say. Some signs from heaven are also very physical like a feather or for example a stone in a certain shape. Some signs can be taken literally, like a heart shape stone stands for love. For others we have associations, which are the actual messages we should think of or be reminded of. Some signs could be very consistently offered for one issue and some signs only appear ones in a life time. I often tend to pick up the physical signs and keep them in special places where they will continue to remind me of the particular message or lesson. Most of the signs I simply keep in my heart...and for the very big ones, I take notes about them in my diary. IF YOU WISH TO ASK FOR SIGNS Below you will find a short practice how to connect with the soul world and request for signs as well as some basic guidelines. Please take notes of the guidelines if you have to. This is a formula I learned from my beloved teacher Dr. Master Zhi Gang Sha and that I apply for everything in life. Its called SOUL POWER. Applying this even though its very simple, is very scared to me and I believe we should always communicate with greatest respect with other people as well as with souls and the soul realm, especially saints and our guides. Sometimes we ask for a sign cause we are challenged and feel imbalanced, in a moment when we have a great need for a sign. Its still important to show courtesy as well as be aware that when we are too emotional, we might not see the sign, even its right in front of us. Its important to request help and at the same time to release all attachments to the answer... When, how and if the sign will be given, is up to heaven. All we have to do is to stay open and trust. PRACTICE How to make requests for signs I was recently in a very sad place after experiencing something very unpleasant regarding the love journey. I connected with the soul of my true love soul mate and picked a card. The message was that I should go out in the nature...it made sense to me, I knew I could get relief by moving and breathing fresh air. Even it was very late in the evening, I got dressed and went out into the cold. I went on a walk to the lake. Being there instantly uplifted me. It became peaceful in my mind around that topic and what happened between the two of us. I felt inspired to do an universal meditation for forgiveness. First I did it basically with all souls and later I decided to do the same with just his soul. I chanted for a while and felt his soul was present and very loving. So I opened my heart and started a soul conversation with him. I asked his soul, when there is still hope for the two of us, when I should continue to trust and move on with the process, he should please give me a vey clear sign in the physical realm. Then I will continue to have faith and do what is asked of me. I thanked him and I went back towards home. I was already feeling much better. I was exhausted from the negative thoughts and feelings of the day and decided to leave it all behind. I was grateful for the advice to go out. I walked down the pathway and on the crossing where I would usually turn right, I felt, I should keep going straight and instead take the little path between the trees to my home. I walked and still chanted mantras in my heart. Just when my home appeared behind the trees, I looked up and then I saw an unbelievable shooting star, just in that moment falling from the right side all across the road I walked to the left. This was the longest fall I have ever witnessed. I was literally in shock. I instantly knew this was the sign I have just asked for. I felt incredible joy and was moved to tears. I just stood there and starred at the sky an cried. I thanked his soul and the entire universe for the gift and the very fast answer. It was one of the most beautiful experiences with signs of my entire life. Sometimes the signs come instantly. Sometimes not. Sometimes we have even forgotten that we have asked for them...and they still come out of the blue...but we instantly know that´s it. This is how it works. What comes in my mind is: you ask and you shall receive. We just have to dare to request... I hope you enjoy the universal play too. If you have any questions or experiences to share, please feel free to write in the comments below. Please enjoy one of my currently favorite songs, which was also a sign when it came to me but this I will share another time...Maybe Sign of the times by Harry Style With Love Magdalena The City Monk is now also on Instagram ART With my deepest love and gratitude for the painting “Bird Heaven” to Natalia Kukunet
A sign of the times could be that we will see more and more people standing out from the crowd and humbly taking the lead to new directions in many areas. With this year that just has started and will also begin in the Chinese Calander on January 25th truly a new era begun and we are all kindly invited to show up and to participate in it with our full heart. The year 2020 is going to be one of the most remarkable ones in the history of man kind. It is a year written with two zeros, two "O" or circles and they represent a few things. A circle stands for Tao, the Source or the creation power out in the universe an within every single being. It stands for completion, making it through the whole cycle or arriving at point zero. It stands for endings and new beginnings. We might see a lot of things that are not in alignment with the source coming to an end this year. We will also see stunning beginnings. Most of all, we will all feel the creation power moving through us and this raw power of source pushing us into areas of growth and accomplishments, we never knew we were capable of. In the year of 2020 many magnificent new inventions for planet earth and the greater good will manifest. People will show up out of nowhere and present solutions for all kinds of human destructions and pollutions to us, that are too good to be true. Very smart and brave individuals will also come out of the shadows of leaders, rulers and players and point us towards a new truth. This year contains the "two" twice and the sum of it is the number "four". Four stands for solid foundations and building the base in every aspect of life. It is also the lucky number for the Soul Light Era, which begun on August 8th 2003 and will last for at least 15 000 years. Great luck will be especially bestowed upon those who live in alignment with the source, embody high qualities of love, forgiveness, compassion and care and focus on service for others and Mother Earth. Two represents the law of Yin and Yang and the balance between these two energies on earth that the universe wants us to achieve in this year. It asks us to create more ying yang harmony within us, within our relationships, in companies, organizations, communities, between countries and beyond. Two also is heaven and earth. Heaven and earth are melting together in the new decade and awaken souls in human bodies to consciously collaborate with the ones from above. Those who pair up this year in new ways will contribute to the universal plan of balancing in huge waves in the next few month. Two stands also for healthy judgement and discernment, when we are deciding between two options. It stands for reasoning that represents a balance between the logical and intuitive mind. It stands for fair sollutions that can be found, when we approach things with a balance between the mind and heart. Our heart will be acknowledged much more in the upcoming years as the playground and center for expressions of our soul. Two is also a number of justice that will be brought to many areas and stands for the justice that can enfold when we open up to see the real truth with a heart-mind-harmony. The number two is a sign for the unification of opposites and we will see many parties who were in disagreement, finding their ways to work with each other instead of against. This number of course represents partnership. Partnership with our own self (our higher self), which is our soul and the partnership with others around us. In 2020 many people will join together in order to move things forward and accomplish big goals for the greater good. Its also the number for union of soul mates. Many of the soul mates who are on their True Love journey will be united this year. Their unification is also a part of the global plan to bring healing in the area of unhealthy, abusive, manipulative and co-dependent relationships in all aspects of life. Deals which are based on taking advantages of an other or contribute to harm to Mother Earth, will come to an end and for some its going to happen with a big boom, so others become aware of it and feel inspired to finish what does not serve them either. Many people will truly awaken and stop living an anxiety driven life and overcome long time issues like for example addictions. Healing of addictions in all forms will be a big topic for 2020 and this includes the unhealthy attachments to not only substances, food, games and social media but also people. The focus of 2020 is more harmony and there is no balance within a human who tends to kling on to something unhealthily and imbalanced individuals tend to create more chaos in the world, as we all know from history. In 2020 we can all expect an increased awareness, more empathy and people who are connected to the source, trusting their inner voice more than the increased noise out in the world. Men and women will honor their feelings much more and openly share their mastery path for long time or tabu issues. As there will be many karmic cycles coming to an end this year, there will be also a lot of desolation and misfortune and hardship to face in the area of business, finances and material in general. We have all already witnessed great losses and destruction in the start of the year all around the world due to fires, storms, volcanos and more. These kind of course correcting universal endeavours will continue to take place and shake us all more awake. It will be a time of coming closer together with the soul family much much more often and really a time of following the call to unknown territories. This planet and all the people will be releasing soul patterns, contracts and agreements from the past (lives) that don´t serve anymore to bring more love, peace and harmony to anyone´s life. Many of those who already went through great losses and challenges, disappointements and failures in the past years, will overcome their past regrets, heal their trauma, reset and truly move on. They will share their lessons with others, as two is also the number for mirroring. Mirroring is not always the way we think. Its not only always to recognize what is triggering us by others but also to recognize what beauty and devotion we can see in them and take it as inspiration for our own path. Many of us will truly discover, unlock and apply their greatest gifts and of course share them with others to serve them to find theirs. Right now we might still go through a time of great cleansing or even stagnation for the new is not fully there yet and the old is way to heavy to hold. We are releasing the fear to break and the anxiety to let go. We are learning to surrender and to connect with the power within. Its truly time to ask ourselves some sincere questions which will bring some ease to the process. Are we still lost in the translation of our gut-feelings, our insights and intuition? Are we afraid to make a move and to leave the past behind? Well, here is a little Gut-Glossary for those who are looking for more clarity: When we enter a room/place and suddenly feel discomfort all over he body, it´s most likely our soul telling us: " I wanna get out here". When we spend time with people we love but feel drained, empty and unfull filled after, it means there could be a huge frequency gap between us, the relationship is not balanced or there is past life karma between us active that is looking for some work out. When we sit at the desk at our job and have the sense of unpleasent nothingness, total lack of inspiration and motivation , when we think our occupation is pointless (beside the pay check) and we feel a huge calling to contribute to the transformation in the world in new ways, its a calling from our soul and a gentle reminder about our life task. When we come home from workday feeling exhausted and with the desire to only shut off from the world, we most likely are stuck in a job that does not fulfill us and steals our life force to a degree where we long isolation. It´s important to fix the situatin before we lose all our energy to do so. When we sit in projects meetings without enthusiasm and our minds keep wondering about other ideas, when we dream of other approaches and ways of moving projects forward, most likely this is either not the project that we should be investing our time and energy in, or this is not the right team to do it with. When we are lying in bed next to our lovely partner and we fantasize about being with someone else, or we spend every minute our soul mate looks away to have a chat with someone else, we probably should take some alone-time for real introspection. This year will also be the year of truth. There will be many out-comings and some real bombshells shaking the global mind. Those who dare to share and step forward to live their truth will take many others with them and we know, no one really was impressed by bought followers. In 2020 we have to clearly decide, if we wish to be the ones who continue to pollute, abuse, burden this planet, who continue to maintain the illusions, or if we belong to those who will be providing the real Medicine to the people and the environment. Who will stand up, take charge to lead the way and take responsibility for the own thoughts, words and actions including everything that is expressed in the modern media. Every like or comment has the power to uplift ourselves and others or to do the other way. This is how powerful each one of us is. In 2020 many of us will come to this conclusion. This year many of us will also apply the tools we know and have and practicing meditation, yoga, calligraphy art and more, will be as welcomed in all facilities around the globe as fresh air is.
