Seeing Red...

Yesterday was a gray, chilly, dreary day in Cleveland, Ohio.  Despite the treat of rain showers, I decided to head out for a walk through the park.  Earlier in the morning I had read a section entitled "Tips For Interpreting The Signs From the Universe" in Get Out Of Your Own Way e-course by Dr. Lissa Rankin of Owning Pink that I am taking.

As I walked, I began to think about signs from the Universe and wondered about their existence.  In the past I believe that there have been signs, here and there, that have pointed me in a direction or steered me clear from a catastrophe.  But, typically, I haven't focused on, or asked for signs on a regular basis.  I hadn't really put much thought into whether there are, or are not, "signs" sent from the Universe.

It was during these thoughts when I, randomly, came upon the little red devil!

That little red devil was incredibly unnerving!  I was even a bit frightened!  Was it a sign?  And, if so, what did this sign mean?  Millions of thoughts ran through my head - most of them negative.

Was I in danger?
Was something awful about to happen?
What was I being warned about?

And, even though, I had an urge to turn and run back to the safety of my car, I continued on my walk.  I tried to "spin" it in my brain and forced happier thoughts - like maybe the sign is about the "devil in the details".  Or that since he was such a cute devil, that it certainly couldn't be an "evil" sign...Right????

Moments later, I rounded a corner and saw, smack dab in the middle of the walking path, was a bright red can of Coke.

And suddenly, I began to see RED everywhere! 

A red post on the side of the road. 

A white plastic bag, with red writing, caught in a tree, blowing in the wind.

A tree with a red trail marking nailed into it's trunk.

And, my favorite, a red-crested woodpecker hopping from tree to tree.

...Just to name a few.

So, obviously, the meaning of little red devil "sign" had something to do with the color red


So, when I got home, I googled "the meaning of the color red" and I found this:
~ Increased enthusiasm and interest
~ More energy
~ Action and confidence to go after your dreams
~ Protection from fears and anxieties

And recently, that is everything that I have been looking for!!!!!

I guess it really is a "sign"!    Right????

So, tell me, do you believe in "signs" from the Universe???
