I woke up this morning wrestling with a sore throat and trying to decipher the meaning of two omens. I went into the garden to quiet my mind and listen for the answer. Most of us have forgotten how to read signs and omens. We tend to treat out of the ordinary occurrences as coincidences. But I firmly believe there are no coincidences. And yes there is always the danger of assigning the wrong meaning to an event; however, if you are truly in touch with your intuition, you will be right more often than not. Where we go astray is when we try to rationalise the experience – to deny what we know to be true.
