Soul Planning Is In Everything
In all the ways my love for Scott has pushed me to grow… whether I wanted to grow, or did not care about growing… it came. Yes. It could not be stopped. I now know everything is soul planned…including that growth and seeing more…in our grief…during our grief…and beyond our grief.
As an example I share this…with love…because it is about growth…and Scott.
My love for Scott has brought me the knowing that he never really left. His body, yes…that part of him I cuddled, nurtured, loved unconditionally as a baby, toddler, a pre-schooler…and yes…forever hugs and kisses throughout every year of his life. I have cards and notes from Scott that are covered in his hand written XOX’s. Precious gifts… Oh yes. Our love to one another in XOX’s is imprinted on my heart.
And so when I saw a jet creating an X one evening in a clear blue sky as I walked on our wonderful bike and hike trail, I was stunned to see what it became. The sun was ever so bright and as I looked up following the jet trail, vapor trail, as I call it now….the sun and the X were now side by side. I gasped! Yes, I was watching a sign being created in the sky, right before my eyes! The X…and with the sun as the O…were brilliantly being shown to me.
I literally had to stand there and take it all in. An XO in the sky! Scott, Nature (one of his loves), and ME. Was anyone else seeing this?? Did anyone need it like I did? Was it just for me? At that point all that mattered was it was happening! I knew it was a sign…a profound connection with Scott on the most personal level. It was mine. Yep. Mine. XO! I reveled in my own happy, excited, “This is crazy!” way.
As I neared my car I saw the most astonishing part of this experience. On the last leg of my walk I could not see the XO in the sky because of the trees, so I hurried to get to the parking lot to take it all in. GASP! When I got to the lot I witnessed a jet making the last downward stroke to cross the second X. What I saw then was complete… XOX
So clearly a sign from Scott. Absolutely unforgettable…and perfectly perfect in all ways!
Why do I share this with you?
It was, in fact, also a lesson. A lesson from Scott that clearly said…”I am here. I see you. I know where you are. I love you. You are not alone.”
It was soul planned.
Planned before Scott and I were born? Yes.
If you’ve been reading our blogs at Death Teaches, you know this summer our writing has concentrated on teaching you about soul planning. Because your understanding about this planning can help you see more in your own grief, in your love for your child, your loved ones….and their love for you.
We share that nothing is random…even death. We all will leave this earth…and we cannot not know when or even how (much of the time).
We are born…and unknown to us in the body…the life as we planned it before we were born begins.
The XOX’s we share are a part of this too…the signs, vivid dreams, messages, feeling a presence, seeing more…are all soul planned too. They are specific to us and our loved ones, our children…to guide us into greater knowing.
My eyes were opened widely through the signs and all from Scott….opened into the knowing that he was here in ways I could never have imagined. And even in quieter moments, through epiphanies, what I learned were not coincidences (because there are none), in trusting I was being guided, and being shown more. All soul planned to take me on this spiritual journey. Who best to do this with me, for me? Scott.
Your child too? Your children? Your spouse, mother, father, sibling, friend…others?
They, in Spirit, have brought you here to this blog, that I write WITH Scott. They want us here…we need to be here. We are learning…and growing…stretching our minds with the greater knowing of a much BIGGER picture of life and death.
Trusting the words of Scott as I do…and wanting you to feel the inner peace I feel with his connection, I ask you to do one thing today… Open your heart up and speak to your loved one…ask for their guidance…even if you did that this morning…
Can it be different today…because it is meant to be? Can you ask for a sign and get one just like that? Maybe…or maybe you need to just be open today and WAIT for your loved one, child in Spirit to bring you what you need, when you need it. That is the beauty of the new relationship we have…it is up to them…because they KNOW what we need. Can you trust them? Be patient and trust they will come? No matter how long it has been…since you heard from them?
So what is your part in this? Trust, patience, opening up to the soul planned life you share, accepting that this is really out of our control…
Scott shares this…
The love and guidance we bring is to help you on your journey… If you are reading still…you must feel we might help you see or understand more. Sara/ Mom learned this years ago…as she looked for guidance from those knowing more than she…and the teachers were there for her. Look for that in everyone around you and ask yourself…What are you teaching me? Whether it comes from a book, a friend, an online class, a Facebook post, a counselor, a sign, a dream, or us. The teachers are all around you. Open your heart, your mind, your eyes to the possibilities and see what may come.
Til next time,
Sara and Scott
