It's A for Awareness month in the acronym SPARK! To refresh, as your intuition awakens, you have increased awareness and will pay attention to the signs and information around you.
Awareness is really a matter of paying attention to all of the information you are receiving. It is so easy to ignore or discount information that is right in front of you. As usual, I have story to share, because this happens to me like it happens you.
I have the privilege of great friends who trust me. I work up birth path information and look at reinventions cycle with them all the time. I have a new friend who trusted me with their birth information and for the first time I have a friend whose birth path is similar to mine. I say similar because I am a birth path 6 and they are a 6/33, having the master number 33 appear in their calculations.
It's interesting to watch the Laws of Reflection at work. Of course, I didn't recognize this at first. One of the challenges of a birth path 6 is the habit of putting the needs of others in front of their own. So imagine two people trying to do this for each other....it can be frustrating. As I said, I didn't recognize this at first and when I did, I was quick to acknowledge their kindness and say thank you! Gratitude always shifts the energy.
In Dick Sutphen's Book, Lighting the Light Within, he defines 20 universal laws, including the Law of Reflection:
"This Law says that the traits you respond to in others, you recognize in yourself, both positive and negative. It has four primary manifestations:
1.That which you admire in others, you recognize as existing within yourself;
2.That which you resist and react to strongly in others is sure to be found within yourself;
3.That which you resist and react to in others is something which you are afraid exists within you; and,
4.That which you resist in yourself, you will dislike in others."
It's an interesting concept to consider. I believe we learn and become more aware every day and this experience is another example of the Universe helping me grow by reflecting my behavior back to me.
So as we work on becoming more aware of the little things that are happening around us and to us, its really worth it to stop, reflect and most importantly pay attention. There could be a valuable lesson to learn, right in front of you.
As always, pay attention to the signs.

It's Rummage season! In April, I get to go to my happy place several times a week and prepare treasures for shoppers in early May. Rummage is so much more than volunteering my time. My Rummage sisters have become a second family for me and we rely upon and support each other during Rummage and throughout the year.
Several of us are going through challenging times and our team has come together to lift up one another and make this a great Rummage Sale. It's a privilege to volunteer time with such exceptional women, whom I can call my friends. Rummage fills my heart!
Find your volunteer experience, fill your heart and maybe find a new friend! Read on...

The letter A in SPARK stands for Awareness. As your intuition awakens, you have increased awareness and will pay attention to the signs and information around you.
Awaken, Awareness, Attention.
As we live life and get caught up in our daily routines, we lose sight of the little things and become a bit robotic: wake up, breakfast, work, lunch, work, dinner,relax, go to sleep. Rinse and repeat. It's no wonder we need to practice mindfulness, our days are so full of activity and distractions.
Luckily, the Universe is constantly sending us messages. When we work on discovering our purpose, we need to be open and aware to receive these messages and information.
Messages come in many forms. They can be on a billboard while driving to work. They can be in your Facebook feed as a photo or quote shared by a friend. They can be the people you 'coincidentally' run into at the store or gym or restaurant. The signs and messages are literally everywhere.
Has this happened to you? You research an idea on your computer, 'Google' a keyword and then keep going, researching more and more until hours have elapsed and you are now a page you never imagined but it answers your original question! This happens to me all the time. I may start looking for a class to attend at a specific school and end up buying a book on a related topic because that really answered my question. Along the way, a word or an ad caught my idea, generated a new idea and I kept going until I answered my question.
Curiosity? Yes. Coincidence? No. I believe the Universe shows us the information we need, just when we need it. The key is to pay attention and be aware in order to receive it.
The most common advice I give to clients is to 'pay attention'. We work on using their intuition, setting their intention and then paying attention. It's the law of attraction at work. Like attracts like. You need to be awake and aware to notice it.
Your path will rise to meet you. If you are aware of the signs and messages, you will soon discover if you are on your destined path or if a course correction is in order. It's all about awareness and of course, your intuition.
Pay attention and heighten your awareness. You will be glad you did.
Peace, Love and Sparks! Deb
