I have wanted to write this blog for a while, because it is so unique. You see, I see hearts everywhere. They just appear in front of me out of common everyday things. But lately these hearts have been showing up with increasing frequency. So I’ve started taking pictures with my phone so I could document them.
All the hearts you see below have appeared before me within the last five weeks. The first one occurred April 20th, and all the rest occurred this month, the most recent one just yesterday. None of these were contrived. I simply happened upon them. Also, none of these were upside down; they all appeared upright to me, the way a heart would appear to anyone. (An upside down heart would have a completely different meaning for me.) I didn’t go looking for any of these, nor did I do anything to make them appear. They just did. (I apologize for the spacing issues, but I was tired of trying to make WordPress do things logically, to no avail.)
I found a heart in an egg…
a carrot on my plate…
a splash of water on my jacket…
a firework burn mark on the pavement…
even bird poop.
And finally, yesterday, a hole in the leaf of one of my houseplants.
There had been a hole in this leaf for a while, but yesterday was the first time it appeared as a heart.
The big question you’re probably wondering is…what does it all mean?
You would think I would have the answer to that, but I really don’t. Is it significant to me? Yes. But I’m not sure what it means just yet.
I used to see hearts primarily in rubber bands…you know, a rubber band falls on the counter and makes the shape of a heart…and I noticed it, but thought it was just a fluke, because it didn’t happen that often. I actually tried to put a rubber band into the shape of a heart to take a photo of it for this blog as an example, but apparently I can’t make it happen, it has to happen naturally.
When I used to see rubber bands form into hearts, I thought maybe the Universe was telling me I was going to meet the great love of my life. When that didn’t happen, I thought well, maybe it just means the Universe is telling me that I am loved, and that I shouldn’t forget it.
But now that hearts have been appearing before me with increasing frequency (and interestingly, never as rubber bands anymore), I know that it means something. And I am paying attention.
For a sign from the Universe to mean something, it has to be 1. Something you notice and 2. Something that is significant to you. Someone else could see all these hearts and think nothing of it. But it means something to me.
I can’t be the only one this happens to. Somebody, somewhere, must see diamonds, or knots, or smiley faces, or feathers, or butterflies, or some other symbol that is significant to them. And maybe they know what it means for them.
As for me…I know full well the significance of symbolism in general. I know the Universe is trying to tell me something, and it knows that I am listening. And because these are happening now with increasing frequency, I am on alert. Do I have a theory? Yes, because the timing is curious as well. But I’m not prepared to divulge that just yet.
If I ever get to a point where I feel I know what it means…I’ll be sure to let you know. In the meantime…
Be aware of signs in your life. They are not random. The Universe is trying to tell you something.
What signs have you seen in your life?
Update: After I wrote this but before I posted it, just after I said that I never saw rubber band hearts anymore, the Universe gave me this:
