There is a game I play as a Spiritual Warrior and Seeker of the Way. It may seem a little silly to some people, however, it is just a game. When I order a cup of coffee (a flat white here in Australia, coffee with cream in the USA), there is generally a little bit of foam on the top of the coffee which is stained with the colour of the coffee. When the Barista has not deliberately designed the top of the coffee, I try to see what shapes appear in the coffee. Sometimes it can be quite engaging and at other times you don’t see anything at all. On 13 April 2010, when I ordered a coffee I got something of a surprise.
When I got my coffee I was thinking about the second part of an article I had written in longhand just yesterday. The article (yet to be published) is the first in a series on meditation techniques to assist you in relaxing and possibly contacting your spirit guides. Imagine my surprise when I looked at my coffee and I saw a Wolf head looking back at me. I was looking into the eyes of one of my animal spirit guides, a wolf spirit. “Sheba” my she-wolf spirit guide was there in my cup looking back at me, reminding me of how slack I have been with writing and posting articles for Timberwolf HQ. I have been busy with craftwork and other things, however, that should not keep me from publishing my articles.
Sheba – My Wolf Spirit
“Sheba’s” appearance was to remind me that I am a Spiritual Warrior and Seeker of the Way who acts as a pathfinder and teacher. How can you reach people and inspire them if you are not publishing articles she was telling me. The message was very clear, “You have chosen to blog your discoveries at Timberwolf HQ and have not done so for a while.” My guide has challenged me to write more.
As the title of my article suggests, I also have a challenge for you, my readers. Next time you order a cup of coffee (with foam on it – a cappuccino, latte or flat white) at your favourite cafe, ask the Barista not to design the top. Then, try to find an image in the foam. Take a photo of this image and either:
- upload it to your photo-sharing social site such as photobucket or flickr
- post a comment at the bottom of this article and include the html code to the image
- send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
- attach the photo
I will then update the comment to include the image or update the article with the details you wish to have published and include the image you have photographed.
Good luck everyone. I look forward to receiving your images. You may also wish to include an interpretation of what you see. 🙂
I was revamping the look of one of my blogs and was considering using a former design – a chameleon mascot. My coffee foam around about that week appeared in the form of a chameleon!
It’s remarkable how our spirit guides remind us they’re always with us.
