I’m Proud of You
As I was washing my feet in the shower one night, I felt something stuck to the bottom of one of my toes. Upon closer inspection, I discovered that it was a tiny sticker. I picked it off and brought it closer to my face, where I could read it. The sticker was carrying a tiny message: “I’m proud of you!”
I have no idea where the sticker came from, or at what point in my day my foot came in contact with it. I had never seen it before that moment in the shower.
The old, cognitive-thinking me would have said, “It probably fell off one of the boys’ school projects onto the floor, and I stepped on it.” Lots of people would reason that way. After all, it’s the sensible way to think, right?
Practically everything can be explained away. A person can come up with a “logical reason” to explain anything. This is the basis of science. And lots of people live their lives this way. I myself used to look at life in that superficial way, but now I see things so much differently. I see straight into the deepest parts of an experience. I see truth there. I have an internal knowing that it doesn’t matter where the sticker came from, or how it ended up on my foot. That part is insignificant. What really matters is why it was magically put there at that exact moment in time. Who put it there?
When I pulled that sticker off my foot and read it, I immediately smiled. I laughed out loud, in the shower. Tears welled up in my eyes. I was filled with positive emotion because I intuitively knew that message was meant specifically for me. I knew that it came directly from Mother Nature, Herself.
I have such a deep connection with Mother Nature (God) in my life right now, and this is a perfect example of how She speaks to me. I am in constant communication with Her (Nature) throughout my day. Most of the time, I access Her guidance by feeling into it. I think of a situation or problem I have, and my intuition guides me with feeling. That process is all internal–inside my body. But, in other times, Nature will speak to me using things outside of my body.
At the time I was given the message on the sticker, I was struggling a lot in my work. I was unsure of my efforts, and whether or not they were making any sort of difference. I felt really low. This is when Nature spoke to me outside of my body. These external ques sometimes happen when I’m too far gone in my head. It’s like She knows that I need a bigger wake-up call, so She sends something that will really get my attention. And it worked. Nature’s message, “I’m proud of you,” spoke right to my heart. These words immediately wiped away all the negativity in my mind and replaced it with pure love. Mother Nature gave me just what I needed–a gentle reminder of Her love.
