Dear Sara: My question has to do with finding the best source or reading material for certain topics. Can you recommend any info about the meanings of numbers, letters, sounds, sacred geometry, astrology? What would you recommend as helpful? Same question regarding the elements (fire, earth, etc.) They keep popping up in my meditations and I’d like to learn more. — Laura
From Sara: There’s obviously a wealth of information on all the subjects you’ve mentioned. And, of course it’s great to want to learn more. However, I would suggest that if the Universe is providing you with visions or messages about fire, earth or whatever it is that you are receiving, it’s important to remember that the Universe communicates with each of us in the most personal way—these messages are not generic. They are personal to you. So while it may feel natural to want to find a source to “unlock the key” to the message, in truth, you are the key. You already understand your answer. This can take some getting used to if you are new to the practice of spiritual intuition—of going inward and working with the guides and all the beings of the Universe to receive guidance. However, once you understand that you have the answer—it will come from within you instead of an outside source—you can begin to work with the information more easily. For example, if you continually received the message of fire, as you mentioned, I would begin to muse upon the qualities of fire, on your own memories or experiences with fire in this and any past lives you are aware of, and simply allow that to sink into your awareness. The Universe may be asking you to put out pesky fires in your life, or to burn through karma, or to become more or less fiery—the thing to know, is that you already know what this relates to. Trust yourself! This may take a few tries and some getting used to, but when you commit to the journey of soul inquiry, rather than relying on outside sources, all understanding will become available to you.
