How do you identify the Holy Spirit? How do you know when the breath of the One who created you is flowing through your being, your thoughts, your decisions? How do you listen louder than you think? Or listen louder than you speak?
And once you identify “it “ as the Holy Spirit speaking and moving, how do you make sense of the message? The stirring? The seemingly endless supply of coincidences?
I would encourage this. Pay close attention to thoughts and happenings. How they correspond. What you learn from them. The key is; what is your learning? As you connect the dots and learn to listen louder than you think, speak or act, the learning will be present in the encounters. It is happening all around, all the time. As we become more aware, more in tune, we will begin to witness the happenings and tap into a deep source that is the very essence of Creation. And in that awareness we participate.
