Warning Signs
Paying Attention To Red Flags
Just as the universe wants to provide for our needs, it also seeks to protect us from dangerous situations, destructive relationships, and even minor inconveniences. Frequently in our lives, perhaps everyday, we encou*nter psychic red flags warning us of potential problems or accidents. We may not always recognize the signs. However, more often than not, we may choose to ignore our intuition when it tells us that "something just isn't right."

Red flags often come in the form of feelings urging us to pause for a moment, listen to our intuition, and reconsider. We may even experience a "bad" feeling in our bellies. This is a red flag letting us know that there may be a problem. We may not even know what the red flag is about. All we know is that the universe is trying to wave us in a different direction. We just have to pay attention and go another way. We may even wonder whether we are paranoid or imagining things. However, when we look back at a situation or relationship where there were red flags, it becomes easy to understand exactly what those warning signs meant. More often than not, a red flag is not a false warning. Rather, it is the universe's way of informing us, through our own innate guidance system, that our path best lies elsewhere.

We may try to ignore the red flags waving our way, dismissing our unease as illogical. Yet it is always in our best interest to pay attention to them. For example, we may meet someone who outwardly seems perfect. They are intelligent, attractive, and charming. Yet, for some reason, being around them makes us feel uneasy. Any interactions we have with them are awkward and leave us feeling like there is something "off" about the situation. This is not necessarily a bad person. But, for some reason, the universe is directing us away from them. Red flags are intended with our best interests at heart. No harm can ever come from stopping long enough to heed a red flag. Pay attention to any red flags that pop up. The universe is always looking out for you.

What do you think?

....I was made aware of my lack of listening to 'red flags" after 10 years of marriege with a very evil man...

Now I listen to everything...and at times men think I am a snob...but i am listening to my newly found awareness of these feelings...I no longer dismiss those "red flags" no matter what you think me...i will not ignore those rf ever again....

Cweet Char,

Great post-red flags, omens, sense, intuition what ever you call it you have to listen regardless of the cost or how it affects your plans or desires.

It reminds me of the lesson my 63 microbus taught me once. I am going to leave my driveway and I hear a loud snap and pop coming from the engine area. Well it still shifted and it still ran so it must be nothing. 15 miles away from home a grenade goes off in the engine compartment and nothing is working. Now I am stranded and need a tow truck to get home.
Turns out the first pop I heard was one spring in the clutch. God gave me a warning but I didn't listen. 15 miles later the whole clutch disintegrates and I am stranded.

Everything in life to me has warnings like that. The early your heed them the less painful in the long run it will be.
It may not be easy or desirable to confront things when you hear the first spring pop, but it is the key to valuing yourself and listening to what the universe is trying to tell you.
God speaks to us all the time. We have free will and will get ourselves in to trouble but he always trys to warn us or suggest that we may want to choose a different course. Remember what ever you have to go through to listen to that "red flag", God is there to help you get back on course and you are never alone. The Great Mystery wants you to flourish and thrive. You can mix anything reasonably but not all chemical reactions are good ones.

Thank you Char--Awesome post!
May the Angels give ease to your breathing and burdens.
SS

I like to think that those "red flags"or intuitions or bad feelings are my Guardian angels way of warning me. Someone up there must be looking out for me. My whole life I've felt like I have a Guardian Angel on one shoulder and the Angel of Death on the other. One day Death is gonna get me when the Guardian is looking the other way. If I ever decide to get tattooed that's what it would be. Grim Reaper on left shoulder and Guardian angel on right

My guides had been giving me messages to get out of my neighborhood (shootings all summer = lots of red flags) and I didn't listen--I didn't wanna go thru all that work, etc. and I loved my apartment. So then someone broke in while I was there (in November) and had to chase him out with a butcher knife! That was like shoving the red flag down my throat! I bought 20 totes the next day and now I move on Saturday.


Well, thank the good lord for that....so glad you are moving


for sure Witchy---i would hate to thing of the world and our lifes without you--once you are settled we need to meet--you are close to me--right now i'm waitressing a few nights but we will!!!!!

Thank you Char, for sharing. Yep, I try to listen to my gut feelings about different things & I'm always glad that I did. But then there are those times when you're feeling them but you choose not to listen to them & then afterwards you think...& why didn't I listen? Life lessons...Hugs Char...

Char........I believe that what you are saying is totally true. I've been called 'too sensitive' when I've backed away from things/situations/people that caused the red flags to fly for me.........and then later on my friends would say "WOW, it's a good thing you didn't go there, or do that, etc......." The red flags have never let me down.

Awwwww, Sweet Char, the red flag syndrome, if we all only listened when it was being waved right in front of our nose's. Sometimes we do, sometimes we don't. A lot of the times it depends on what our hearts and minds are wanting at that time. If I had really listening to the warning bells and red flags the day I got married, I would never have done it, but, then again, I wouldn't have my Matthew. Some good things come out of our not heeding these warnings, they are "life's lessons". As I get older, (working on dirt time) I pay more and more attention to these warnings.

It's so true Char that red flags are everywhere! I follow the red flags a lot when it comes to answering a man on the site...One way is I look at the names they use. If his name is "Red"...forget it!!!

I like to think of it as God whispering to me.

If I don't listen to the whisper, I always seem to regret it.
