The other day I was talking to my friend Charles who writes as a jazz critic for the Metro Times and has a wonderful jazz blog on Blogger. As we were talking about our blogs and he began to give me his opinion about my blog which I could tell he had been reading and knew very well. He said that he really liked the post A Secret To Peace Of Mind. Charles also told me that I had the kind of blog that leaves you wanting more and makes you want to come back every couple days to see what else I have written. He said that my posts were not too long, just long enough, and were like life coaching sessions. He said “the only thing I would change is you need to post more often.” Charles pointed out “I can get away with posting once or twice a week. Mine is just about music, but your content is used to help people’s lives. People need to know they can come back in a day or two and see something new.” I often wondered if I needed to post more often and wondered if this was my answer. I had been reluctant in the past because I didn’t want to put so much out there that when I write new books people would feel like I heard all he has to say in his blog. So I had been debating.
Later that evening, I could not get the conversation out of my head. I turned on the radio and said “maybe I will get my answer as to whether the conversation was a sign on the radio.” I turned on Rosie O’donell’s show and guess what the subject was? They devoted the show to getting listener feedback, and spoke about how they needed it to make the show be all that it can be. I wondered “is this a coincidence or a sign?” The next morning I was still looking for or rather being open to signs when Charles called me. We rarely talk on the phone so I said “this must be more information from the Universe coming through Charles.” I answered and there was only jazz playing in the background. I called him back but got no answer. Then an hour later he called me again. I said “OK now here comes more feedback from Charles or maybe more signs.” Once again jazz playing in the background. I said to myself “I am sure he must be hitting the talk button over and over by mistake.” But I also thought that “this is God reminding me about the conversation and also telling me that the Universe has said all it has to say through Charles already”. Over the next couple days I continued to get more and more signs telling me more posts more often.
My question to you is; What is the Universe trying to tell you? Be open, and as always pay attention to the signs, they are all around you, and will lead you where you need to go.
