Notice the Signs

Adhemas Batista

Franca Giuliani - Lately, I’ve been wondering if my work really makes a difference to people. I do get positive feedback, but still…I wonder.

I was in Belgium recently at my friend’s house, and the evening was so beautiful, we sat outside in her backyard. We quietly watched brown finches taking turns bathing in a trickling fountain that led into a pond. Both my friend and I were in awe. She said that she had never seen this before.

Last week here at home (I live in New Jersey) there was a tremendous heat wave. I came home late and just wanted to relax. The last thing I wanted to do was be outside. However, I had been feeling guilty not keeping up with my garden, so I did go out to take a peak. The bird bath was completely barren of water. The last thing I wanted to do was to unroll the garden hose, get dirty, and get dirty wet. It really wouldn’t matter anyway if I filled the bird bath that night. Right? Well…

The minute the hose went on, a bird flew straight into the bird bath, and just plopped himself stoically in the shower of the hose. A robin, less brave, waited on the sidelines until I left.

I couldn’t stop laughing!

I got the connection. This was the Universe’s way to tell me, “Yes, Franca, you do make a difference. Just keep on doing it.”

The moral of the story: If something is on your mind, and you happen to see a pattern happening in your path, it’s a sign. Take the hint.

 And for June be very attentive, because it has an innate rapid energy.


  • You might miss something, since things will be moving fast. 
  • Now is a good time to acquire any organizational items or furniture that you have been thinking about. 
  • You may also want to keep a notepad near you at all times and write down the oddities, just so you don't miss anything.

Until next month - enjoy!
