I Heard The Trump Sound

Easter 2017 I was at a religious retreat for the weekend and I saw someone who I have known socially for over a year. I did not know and she did not know that we both follow our hearts and spiritual paths. We never spoke spiritual about things only warm greetings and she would always touch the amethyst charm that I wear.

She had commented that she does not speak on topic spiritually to others because they are not awakened and does not want to appear ‘crazy’. I told her that I understand that to be true. But we both agree that the world and people in it are awakening like magic in their own space and time and how frustrating it can be to walk the path alone.

And that sometimes just because we ‘know’ that we are humans but still look for signs and signs in the sky. Last night I got that sign when I was awakened by the sounds of trumpets and I thought about the verse that said, ‘the trumpet will sound and the dead shall be raised’ and also the verse about the seven sounding trumpets.

To my friends and others who follow a spiritual path hang in there because I will too.
