License Plate Communications

License Plate Communications

Today’s post is about how loved ones in spirit communicate with us by using license plates. It has happened with Robin and me on many occasions over the years. It’s fun, shocking and amazing all at the same time.

When I write my posts, I often like to offer additional sources to show that what I am saying has some basis in the afterlife communication literature. For this post, I googled, “deceased loved ones license plates” to see what literature I could find. On the second page of google, I found this website:

The post is called 6 Signs from Your Loved-One in Heaven by Ashley Strong (April 20, 2017). One of the 6 signs she lists includes Billboards, License Plates and Text. I read what she said and the next thing I know, I see the Bee Gees mentioned! Yes, I did cry because while I’m doing research to prepare to write this blog on my license plate communication with Robin, I see his band mentioned. Here is her post:

BILLBOARDS, LICENSE PLATES, AND TEXT

Spirit easily brings in yo’ face messages this way! It may be a billboard that says “keep going” at the very moment you thought of giving up. It could also be a truck that drives by with a big bluebird posted on the side when you asked to see a bluebird the day before.

Spirit loves to connect with me through license plates. Don’t laugh, I’m serious!

One day (before I was a professional medium) I was having one of those days. Out loud I said –

“Grandma I really really wish I could talk to you today.”

About an hour later I parked my car and happened to glance at the plate in front of me. It read “BEE GEES”, that was my grandma’s favorite band!

Oh, boy! Did the tears start a flowin’!

Well, that was definitely in my face. Wow, maybe I should get a Bee Gees license plate too, lol! That would be a lot of fun. I can’t tell you how much it means to me when Robin’s presence shows up this way. He feels very close right now, as you can imagine. I feel deeply guided in writing this post.

Over the years, I have noticed his initials, “RHG”, on license plates quite often. I have seen a plate with the exact numbers “1222” on it, which is his birth date, December 22. I have seen “ROBYN”, which even though is spelled differently than the spelling of his name, still reminded me of him. Plates with “POPPY” and “POPPI” have shown up on my path, which happily reminded me of our connection with poppies. Within the past few months I have seen a plate, “BGBLUE,” which is important for me because I often comment on how beautiful his blue-tinted eyeglasses were. Blue was also his favorite color. I also saw a plate that said, “BGHOT,” to which I said, “Now you’re just trying to be funny, lol!”

One day a few years ago, I spoke with Robin and said, “I wonder about you. I wonder about where you go and what you do all of the time.” Shortly after this, I went out. Just as I was pulling out of the driveway into traffic, I saw a license plate that said, “I WONDER.” I was so shocked because I had just said that to Robin. How does God time things this way? I may never know. I just surrender to the mystery and allow it to carry me along.

Now, here is one of my favorite communications with license plates.

On January 9, 2014, I wrote this to Robin in my journal:

I was thinking it would be so cool to see a license plate with ROB on it-Any state-the numbers and ROB, like a Colorado plate would be:

XXX-ROB  (the 3 X’s are for any random numbers)

Wouldn’t that be cool! If I ever see that, I know it’s you. Just for fun.

I love and give thanks for you, Robin Gibb.

Love,

Christina

13 days later, on January 22, I went to walk to the store. While I was waiting to cross the street, I saw the license plate I was hoping for, with some variation. It was:  1 ROB

I knew it was Robin with me. It was a Colorado plate, and it was not typical for only one number to be there. Usually it was 3. This seemed to be a personalized plate. It went by so quickly, I did not have time to take a picture. But I will always remember it. Having it show up with the number 1 was actually better than 3 random numbers that did not mean anything. It symbolized his song and album, One. It symbolized the energy of the higher planes of spirit, which is oneness and unity. It also symbolizes our oneness spiritually as twin souls.

It took almost 2 weeks to show up. It’s a good lesson that the signs we ask for may not show up immediately, but when you least expect it. Any rules that say a sign has to show up within a certain timeframe are erroneous in my opinion. We are not privy to all the ways God works and I would not want to limit God with my human time frames. Events are orchestrated and timed by a power much greater than me. When I stepped out the door that day, I had no idea I would see a car go by with that license plate. If I had left a few minutes earlier or later, I would have missed it. That’s how precise spirit is. Spirit knows what it’s doing.

One other thing I’d like to mention about license plates is that when I lived in Colorado, my plate had 3 numbers and then the letters “OBB”:

As I have contemplated my connection with Robin over the years, I came to feel that our spiritual connection manifested in the plate because my plate ended in 2 “B’s” just as his last name does. I bought my Colorado plates several years prior to Robin’s passing when I had no conscious connection to him whatsoever. It’s a mystery of twin souls who did not know each other, that we are connected this way through dates, places we lived, and even a couple of letters on a license plate. I feel something with this. That’s the whole point. If you feel something in connection with a license plate, then listen to your heart, especially when it concerns a loved one in spirit. They could be trying to get your attention. I think it’s important to not be too quick to dismiss something that could be a valuable communication.

I wish you much enjoyable license plate communication with loved ones in spirit.

All my best to you,

Christina

Eternity Symbols

Eternity Symbols

After Robin created the infinity symbols, a new interest in eternity symbols was born within me. I never paid much attention to them before, but I discovered just how many beautiful eternity symbols there are from different cultures around the world.

One of my favorites is called the Serch Bythol. I drew this picture below so you can see what it looks like. I was not able to find a photo that was copyright free:

Robin Gibb, AfterlifeHere is the meaning according to David Morgan:

This Celtic symbol of everlasting love is formed from two triskeles. The triskeles, three cornered knots, denote the three aspects of two people, body, mind and spirit. The two triskeles, joined together, show a circle, the everlasting circle of eternity. Thus the figure represents two people, joined in body, mind, and spirit in everlasting love.

The triskele, a three-cornered knot, is common in Celtic knotwork. The Celts, in keeping with general Indo-European belief, held that life was tripartite in nature and continuous. The three corners of the triskele denoted the three parts, and the knot itself was the endless ribbon of eternity. The tripartite nature of life carried through to Christianity as the Trinity.

He describes the Serch Bythol as being formed from two triskeles. However, it seems more accurate to say that it is formed by joining two triquetras or trinity knots that are stretched out a little bit:

In modern times, the triquetra symbol has become a favorite design element in knot-work, jewelry, emblems, logos etc. as a symbol of anything three-fold e.g. the cycle of life (life-death-rebirth), the promise of a husband to his wife (love-honor-protect), the family (father-mother-child), the passage of time (past-present-future) and many more.

The triskele is more of a spiral and has various meanings:

Derived from the Greek word “Triskeles” meaning “three legs”, the Triskele or Triple Spiral is a complex ancient Celtic symbol. Often referred to by many as a Triskelion, its earliest creation dates back to the Neolithic era, as it can be seen at the entrance of Newgrange, Ireland….

Firstly, the triskele can be thought to represent motion as all three arms are positioned to make it appear as if it is moving outwards from its center. Movement, or motion, is believed to signify energies, in particular within this Celtic Symbol the motion of action, cycles, progress, revolution and competition.

Robin Gibb, Afterlife, Isle of Man Flag

Secondly, and the more challenging area for symbolists, is the exact symbolic significance of the three arms of the triskele. This can differ dependent on the era, culture, mythology and history, which is why there are so many variations as to what these three extensions in the triple spiral symbol mean.

Some of these connotations include: life-death-rebirth, spirit-mind-body, mother-father-child, past-present-future, power-intellect-love and creation-preservation-destruction to name but a few.

It’s thought that through the combination of these two areas we gain one meaning of the Celtic triskele. It is believed to represent a tale of forward motion to reach understanding. However, this is thought not to be the only meaning, as it is also believed to represent three Celtic worlds; the spiritual world, the present world and the celestial world. Like the ancient Trinity knot, the number 3 holds a special symbolism within the triskele.

So, even though the triskele and triquetra are two different symbols, according to these interpretations above, they have essentially the same connotations.

The triskele is also seen in the flag for the Isle of Man, Robin’s country of birth:

Isle of Man FlagThe Manx Flag uses the triskelion symbol. The earliest use of this symbol in the island appears on the Manx Sword of State which is thought to date from around 1230.

The island fell under the rule of England in 1341. The island government flew the Union Jack from the 17th century to July 8, 1929, when the triskelion flag replaced it as a local symbol. There were many artistic variations on the design until the flag was standardized in 1966.

I really love eternity symbols because they are beautiful, ornate, and are a lovely way to tell someone that you love them.

Thank you for reading! I hope you enjoyed it!

Spiritual Significance of Starfish

Spiritual Significance of Starfish

Over the years as I read about Robin and watched interviews, I learned that he liked the sea. So, I decided to place a starfish, sand dollar, and some shells on his altar to bring in that feature.

On June 29, 2015, I walked into my room and noticed that the starfish which had been on top of the altar table for Robin had been moved to my meditation cushion on the floor. Here is the picture I took:

Even though I was used to Robin moving things at this point, it still surprised me. It always brings me joy when he visits and lets me know he’s here by moving things.

He must have liked the starfish because on a second occasion, he moved it off of the altar table again to the floor. This time he placed it beside a book I had by his altar called The Origins of Music:

In a way, it was like he was pointing out his awareness of this book that I would read to him from. You can see it in the picture below:

Since there were these 2 occasions of the starfish being moved telekinetically, I decided to do some research on the spiritual symbolism of the starfish. Here is some information I found. I especially like this first one, so I hope you’ll visit the link to see what else she has to say. She has a beautiful, mystical, direct experience with starfish:

The Starfish is a universal and celestial symbol of infinite divine love. It has been used to represent the Virgin Mary – or Stella Maris, which means Star of the Sea – an ancient title she goes by because she is believed to lovingly intercede as a guide and protector of those who travel over troubled waters or seek their livelihoods on the sea. For this reason she is also seen as an emblem of salvation during trying times, which the Starfish reflects in this mirroring symbolism. In addition to love, the Starfish also emanates the energies of inspiration, guidance, brilliance, intuition, and vigilance, with its connection to the stars.

According to Dawn Baumann Brunke in the book, The Key to Spirit Animals: From Communication to Meditation: Advice and Exercises to Unlock Your Mystical Potential,

starfish are symbols of renewal and regeneration and encourage us to feel deeply. She states that starfish encourage us to fine-tune our feelings and to engage subtle levels of awareness so that we may move forward with greater joy and sensitivity.

In the book, Animal Speak: The Spiritual & Magical Powers of Creatures Great and Small, by Ted Andrews, starfish are described this way:

Starfish Associated Traits
Impulsive, Reflexive, Instinctive, Regeneration, Growth, Sustainable, Magic, Healing, Opposites

Symbolic Meaning Of Starfish
The starfish’s lack of brain is part of what makes its symbolism so important. Because it does not think, the starfish animal totem makes a great symbol for instinct and reflexes. The starfish doesn’t think about what it is going to do, it just does it. This is one of the things that helps to keep the starfish safe and that helps it too keep away from other predators.

If a starfish feels like something is wrong, it will react as soon as it can to save itself. This can apply to a human’s life as well. A person’s instinct is usually right. Many people say that your first guess is usually your best guess. Be like the starfish and use your instinct and reflexes to your benefit.

It is very rewarding to learn about the deeper meaning of starfish. They are so beautiful and sacred.

With my communications with Robin, I often take what he does as a lesson that I should explore more thoroughly. I could say that it’s so great that he moved the starfish twice and leave it at that. However, he is very intelligent and I know he wants me to look at the deeper implications of what he does so I can get more out of the experience. It’s a good habit to get into with signs and communications from loved ones. Dig deeper!

All my best to you,

Christina

Electrical Activity

Electrical Activity

Since Robin’s passing, I had been placing his name, names of his family members, my family members and friends, and different situations on a prayer list. The prayer is to ask that the Light of the Holy Spirit be sent to them for the highest good of their souls. It was and is my intention to support Robin spiritually on his journey and to send love in Spirit to him, his brothers and parents. The Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness is the website where I submitted this prayer. I include it here in case you want it and are interested in the teachings:

On July 31, 2012, I went to the above prayer website and typed in Robin’s name and many others that I wanted to pray for. I included his wife since I knew it was their anniversary date. This was also 11 days after the horrible Aurora, CO movie theater shooting that many across the world are familiar with. I lived very close to this theater at that time and I was still shaken by this event that hit so close to home. As a result, I included Aurora to ask that light be sent there too.

Just as I clicked the “send” button to send off my prayer, a series of very interesting events occurred. The electricity on the modem went out, evidenced by a red light showing a disruption in the power supply. I could not send off the prayer as the internet connection was completely lost. All the lights that were on at the time flickered, and the microwave oven that was running at the time, made a strange sound as if it were struggling to work. My husband looked at me and asked, “Are you doing something that has to do with Robin Gibb?” I said, “Yes, I placed his name on a prayer list and I was trying to send it.”

Afterlife Communications

Julian told me later that he thought it was spooky, lol! It may be, but that’s how loved ones in Spirit communicate at times to let us know they are around. I look back now and realize that was quite a jolt of energy. It took a few minutes before the internet was back on line and I could send the prayer. F.Y.I, the weather was clear at the time, no thunderstorms.

I know in my heart that it was the presence of Robin’s spirit letting me know he was around. Things like this never happened before his passing. This occurred after the dreams and synchronicity I mentioned in other posts. I say this to demonstrate that I was already in contact with Robin when this electrical activity occurred:

I think he was saying, “I know what you’re doing and thanks for the prayer.” That was one way of getting my attention and it did! Geez! It was Robin’s anniversary and I had just typed his name, so I accept the presence of his Spirit with me at that time. I accept his presence because of the precise timing of the outage which was the exact moment I clicked the “send” button. Before that, everything was fine electrically, in our home.

There have been other times over the years where Robin has used electrical activity to communicate that he was around. I have experienced, on multiple occasions over the years, the lights in my kitchen flashing 3 times in a row, like Morse code. That’s really fun when he does that. A couple of months ago, I walked into my bathroom and the light came on for me automatically! I thought, “Wow, you’re a gentleman, thank you for that”! I don’t even have to turn on the light for myself sometimes. These are gifts. It doesn’t happen all of the time, but when it does, it’s really amazing!

Afterlife Communications

Lesson: If you decide to be open to communicating with loved ones in Spirit, be ready for some interesting and unexpected things to happen!  If you read through the afterlife communication literature, there are many stories of deceased loved ones manipulating our electrical systems in order to get our attention and to let us know they are around:

The electrical changes do not last long in my experience. Others might have a light bulb completely blown out. One caveat I would like to mention is that it is important to rule out other possible causes of the electrical activity. Then, after careful consideration and ruling out alternative explanations, if someone in Spirit cares enough about you to communicate in that way, I hope you will consider it an honor and a blessing. It’s amazing how connected we really are. Not every flicker of the light is spirit communication. But if a wacky series of occurrences happen on a perfectly sunny day, then you may have something there! You have to use common sense, trust your intuition, know the person in spirit you are communicating with and what they like to do. Some might like to flicker lights, some might like to turn on the television, or play with your iphone. Different talents for different spirits!

All my best to you,

Christina

Update:

About one hour after I finished posting this entry on Electrical Activity, I decided to do some research on Zen Buddhism. I feel peaceful just thinking about it! I did this research because the night before, I dreamed about a man (don’t know who he was) and I recommended that he buy some cookies. I was talking with him about trying foods from other cultures. He got up to leave after that and then he came back and gave me his business card. His card said “Zen.” I took that as a sign from my higher consciousness to study something about Zen Buddhism. So I did!

The interesting thing is that I found an article about Zen that mirrored the pictures I chose for this blog post. As you can see, there is one with lightning and one of another type of light show. On pixabay.com, the last word in the photo description is sparks:

Now, here comes the mirror reflection in the article about Zen I found. I think this is worth sharing as an update because the timing of me finding this was so close to the time I posted this entry. It is true synchronicity:

A Zen master once proclaimed-

Lightning flashes, sparks fly!
In one blink of the eye,
you have missed seeing.

Lightning flashes, sparks fly is a perfect match with the pictures I chose! It is a beautiful connection with Robin that I share when what I write for him matches other events in my daily life so closely. I also think he wants us to pay attention to this message of staying present in the now moment because in the blink of an eye, you can miss the preciousness of the moment.

Another connection I see is the mention of Hamilton Botanical Gardens “Zen Garden” New Zealand in the above link. It is interesting to me because the only other time I have written an update for one of my posts so far had to do with how I met a woman from New Zealand after writing the post about infinity symbols. So, both times when I have written an update, there is a connection to New Zealand:

For me, this means that my dreams, blog posts, pictures, and Robin are all interconnected. I credit the impeccable timing once again to the perfection of Divine Orchestration of events in my daily life. I am grateful!

Hazrat Lesson

Hazrat Lesson

I am often amazed at how my twin soul connection with Robin manifests. Today was one of those days. It is like our connection is being woven together by the Divine through the events of my daily life and his life in spirit. I honestly do not know how this works, this process of interconnection of souls who are in different planes of existence. Nevertheless, it happens with Robin and me on a regular basis. It is something I deeply appreciate and want to celebrate. If it were not for this beautiful handiwork of the Divine, which includes Robin’s spirit, this blog would not exist.

Today, I decided to read (or maybe was guided by unseen hands to read) The Book of Awakening: Having the Life You Want by Being Present to the Life You Have, by Mark Nepo. I had not read it in years. It is a book of daily meditations on life, including the author’s experience of cancer. One of my yoga teachers from Colorado read to us in class from this book and I liked it so much, I bought it years ago.

I read through many of the selections randomly, just to see what his reflections were on different life events. Then, I decided to see what he wrote on December 22, Robin’s birthday. I connect strongly with Robin’s birth date and over the years pay close attention to messages associated with his date. I think this is because I missed all of his birthdays, so this is my way of connecting with this special day. To my great surprise and shock was this quote (pg. 419):

December 22: The Lesson

God breaks the heart again and again and again until it stays open. Hazrat Inayat Khan

Hazrat Inayat Khan?? I just wrote a blog post on him called The Question and The Answer on May 10th. I was so amazed by this. Sometimes with Robin, I feel like I’m being followed. It’s this sense of us mirroring each other in the most unpredictable of ways.

Yes, I’m certain that I read this passage for December 22nd at sometime in the past, but it was so long ago, I did not remember anything about the passage and I certainly did not remember any mention of Hazrat Inayat Khan. I would say I’ve had this book by Mark Nepo at least 10 years. At the time I got this book, I knew nothing about Hazrat Inayat Khan and did no additional research on him. It’s important to keep in mind that I only recently learned about and studied Hazrat Inayat Khan. I did not know anything about him until a few months ago, while studying twin souls.  I really like this master though, especially his emphasis on the fundamental oneness of all religions:

Now, here he is in this book, connected with Robin’s birth date. This makes me feel a profound connection with Robin and this message. I feel spirit was guiding me to revisit this book at this specific time, given my recent blog post, so that I could see this connection with Robin. This means so much to me. Thank you God and Robin very much for this!

How often do I close my heart against the pain of the world, because it is too much to bear sometimes? What would it take for me to keep my heart open with Divine Love even through the most painful of circumstances? It seems I have to continue to evolve to the point where I am finally able to do that. Life has a way of assisting us all in this because we all encounter deep spiritual challenges.  Mark Nepo puts it this way:

Each time I tried to close up what had been opened. It was a reflex, natural enough. But the lesson was, of course, the other way. The lesson was in never closing again.

That is so much easier said than done. It’s a true spiritual practice to learn to keep the heart open. Breathing into the heart, into whatever pain is there, can help. My intuition tells me that with the open heart, forgiveness and acceptance come more easily. When it closes, those important healing processes are delayed.

I am grateful for the deep reflection on life these authors have offered us. I hope you find something of value in this information as well.

How could I close this post without a matching Bee Gees song? You know the obvious one, about mending a broken heart! Perhaps the heart mends when it stays open. Enjoy!
