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.
I’ve just recently confirmed that I do have Native American heritage, which I am thrilled about. For the past 15 years, since coming in contact with a wolf and looking into its eyes (and its soul), I have been obsessed with wolves and their survival. I’m involved with several organizations and have used my body as a sounding board for discussions by way of tattoos. It still amazes me how little people really know about them. I want to think that the wolf is my spirit animal but just because I dream of them and a little obsessed with them, does that mean that they are my spirit animal? Thank you for any assistance and I look forward to reading more on your website.
I just wanted to stop in and say Hi. I have been reading your website and have been on a journey myself here the last year. I have recently stepped away from Christanity and have been searching. I just kept having this feeling that it was time to step away. To leave the confines of a church building. I could not shake the feeling until I did it. I have been looking for The Way and Truth as well and just felt that I could no longer sit passively and just accept with no critical thought what I was being fed. I walked away. I am a member of the Poarch Band of Creek Indians in Atmore AL and have really been feeling a pull towards being more aware of my heritage and the great wealth of Spirituality that I have been afraid of my whole life because my white grandparents (who was a Baptist preacher) taught me to be afraid of it. I was taught that it was evil in God’s sight but now I am not so sure that is the truth anymore. I really want to feel and KNOW that conncetion to the true Spirit and Creator of ALL. Sometimes I have even felt that maybe there is no God. that we have all beleived a lie but deep inside I just cannot allow myself to beleive this. I feel like I am alone on this journey but I cannot go back to what I had known because I know it would be ultimately a spiritual death for me. I think something is going on though because my daughter Autumn has for some reason now become enamored with anything wolves. she wants wolf stuff for her birthday. And then I “just happened” to come across this website. do you have anything that might be helpful on this journey and that will help me not to be afraid. I have just been feeling this giant push as it were to turn away from everything I have been taught. I can’t explain it! thanks for any insight!
I never cease to be amazed at how many people in the world are finding that their faith is being tested. Well, to quote a show I was watching the other night, “Spirituality is for those seeking understanding…religion is for those seeking reward.” This is the point in your life where you will step away from seeking the reward offered by being a “god-fearing” person and seek knowledge of the Cosmic Consciousness on your own. It is a journey I started on some years ago. I truly believe in Higher Power, Universal Energy or whatever other name you wish to put on that great unknown. My path though is to find understanding. I seek it on behalf of myself and others like you. When I find interest in something that has spiritual meaning I write about it. With your connection to the Poarch Band of Creek Indians, you have access to a great connection with “all-that-is” and should look to finding understanding first in your ancestral roots. When you have followed this path, you will then know what you need to do with that newly acquired knowledge.
I would hope that you will continue to frequent my site and share with my readers and I your learning on your journey.
Little big dreamer
I have a sririt wolf namd kaleb, i just met him and i would like to now more of spirit gides any recomended books or websites?
that just proves that signs can come to one anytime and anywhere.:)
Hi Dawn / Cheyenne
Thank you for stopping by. I too believe that our spirit guides are able to appear to us in all forms and mediums.
Thank you for your warm welcome. You are right…there is no coincidence. I’m sure it was Sheba’s way of letting me know she is always close by too.
Hope you had a lovely weekend. I am in the middle of assignments and moving work premises, so will visit the site you mentioned when I have more time.
I was doing a search to show my mum what my spirit giude Sheba looks like and I came across your website. I have to say the picture you have of Sheba in the top right hand corner took my breath away. I first felt her presence 2 years ago and continue to communicate with her to this day. I have seen her with two young ones and I feel very close to her.
It would be great to hear from you.
Lots of love
It is wonderful to see you drop by Timberwolf HQ. I too have a spirit guide named Sheba. Do you think it was a coincidence that led you here? I’m pretty certain that it was not. Anyway, I dropped by your website, Head2Toe Therapies. I loved it.
Please fee free to drop by again and leave a comment. It would be so wonderful to hear from you again Nisha.
I have been going through rough times but i finally decided to let go. Over the course of time I came across feathers, numbers, and humming birds all to heal and tell me I am on the right path. Thats how i stumbled across this site searching for the meaning of 2:22 because i dont have all the meaning memorize. Also this morning i drank coffee in which i have not had in a long time. So there was a link before i even knew it. So tomorrow i will take this challenge… i also have a wolf spirit guide so this site will be fun..
Namaste pure-remedy. I apologise for the delay in responding to you.
It is wonderful to see that you found a resource in Timberwolf HQ. I have a number of new coffee images to add to this article. I will be doing this over the coming days.
I look forward to seeing the images that you find in your acceptance of this challenge.
Please come back and provide your images soon.
Being of Cherokee Indian blood, I strongly agree with the concept of spirit guides. My own guide, a majestic looking male wolf named Ika, first appeared to me when I dropped a cup of tea and in the pool on the floor I could clearly see his face. It left me speechless for a long time afterward…
Hello and welcome to Timberwolf HQ. Thank you for sharing the story of the image of your spirit guide. It would have been amazing to see a photo of the image. Anyway, if you do happen to see one in your coffee or elsewhere, please come by and provide a link to it.
I just wanted to say that I enjoyed reading your articles on the wolf spirit guides. They were very informative. I would like to share a short story with you of how I discovered my animal guide.
A few years ago while I was going through a troubled time in my life. I tried many different avenues to try and make things better. They didn’t work and I became more agitated and finally ready to give up. Until one night when I was finally getting a restful sleep. My wolf guide came to me in a dream, she was alone. She just sat there with her blue eyes piercing right through me. It was her way of saying, “I’m here to help, you can’t give up.” A feeling of peace washed over me and I was able to become one with my guide. A new journey began with paw and foot on the right path. Honestly I haven’t looked back since.
Hopefully this short story can inspire someone, or maybe help them in a difficult time.
Hello Sherry and welcome. What a wonderful story. Thank you so much for sharing with my readers and myself. Would you be interested in submitting it for my competition? You can find the details here: Timberwolf HQ Article Competition. Please let me know.
It would be wonderful to have you back providing more comments and insights.
I was revamping the look of one of my blogs late last year and was considering using a former design – a chameleon mascot. My coffee foam around about that week appeared in the form of a chameleon! I had this image laying on my computer with no place to go until Timberwolf posted this article. The photo shows my former blog mascot and my coffee foam.
Hi Somone – Thanks for accepting the reader’s challenge. That is an amazing photo. The comparison to your sites mascot is truly incredible. The Chameleon is the master of change. It is sensitive to the environment and its surroundings. This mascot definitely conveys the meaning of your site, ‘Bold, Bright and Beautiful’.
Great post, as usual 🙂 I’m always looking for these types of signs myself! Perhaps it’s time to upgrade my camera phone lol
Thanks Siosi. Don’t forget to send me the images you find and any interpretation you may have.
