I identified them first, years ago.
The few special friends (Souls) that seem to stand out, and light up my way in Life.
Like a lamp. Like a lighthouse.
Illuminating beacons — like the bright sparkling lights alongside the landing strips of Life.
Reminding me that I haven’t lost my way.
We may not have spoken in months. Years. Nothing lost. Still connected. Welcoming. Loved.
We pick up where we left off. Seamless. They GET me. Cut me slack. Wish me well.
How many of these Beacon Friends might you have? Who are you set up to meet right now that might become one? What would you need to do, in reciprocation, to allow that special Beacon Bond to mature?
Looking back now, I didn’t always know it when I met them. Oftentimes, they caught me off guard.
Sometimes we drifted way, way apart.
Even, perhaps, they appeared seemingly unwelcome at the time.
But a Beacon Friend will stitch, with serendipity, back into your Life. Often in unexpected ways.
And over time they prove themselves. Solid. True.
And over the decades you come to respect them. Love them. Find encouragement and serendipity in their light :))
Yet, like a magical, whimsical Sprite, they cannot be forced. Coerced. They choose who they will, and arise of their own accord.
Sometimes, someone we have high hopes for, who we think would become a Beacon, fizzles. Fades away into the distance. Not to be seen or heard from again.
Sometimes, too, they will by surprise re-appear, seemingly on a larger trajectory. (Not all planetary bodies orbit at the same rate. Some are closer. Others farther out . . . )
So when your Beacon Friends re-appear on the stage of your Life, take note. The Stars are trying to tell you something.
Listen. Look. Be ready.
They were put here to bring you a sign.
Don’t miss it!
Remain grateful. Gracious. Open.
Their coming could save you from running aground on some sharp reef. Or crashing into the abyss by missing some important runway.
