The Wax Heart Messenger


I am a big believer in signs. In paying attention to your surroundings and getting tuned in to those messages that are being sent directly to you. From where they come, I am still not sure. But I see and hear them all the time. Sometimes I will then look them up in my sign book, research it on the web, or make up a theory that makes sense to me.

Now this might seem to some a stretch, but I received another sign last Friday. My sister and I treated ourselves to an eyebrow waxing. You know, where they apply the hot wax underneath the brow, above the brow and between the brow for those cursed with that most undesirable uni-brow. It has become a cultural beauty necessity ~ hairless and smooth and perfectly arched.

So, while having my brows done, the last region on my face that the esthetician applied the hot wax was between my brows. She then lightly pressed the cloth over the wax and with a little pressure ripped it off, removing those unsightly hairs, only to be astonished when she saw the shape of the wax she removed. It was an obvious little pink heart. "Oh my God, I have never seen anything like this in all the years that I have been doing this!"

Now I don't know this woman well, in fact it was the first time I had gone to her, but I could tell she was the superstitious type, something about her, I'm guessing her mother was probably one of those roadside fortune tellers. I hadn't told this woman any of my personal information, except that I had just moved to the area. Anyway, she looked again at the heart and said with conviction, "Oh I think you are going to find love ~ yes, love is coming your way." I looked at that heart, I looked at her, she didn't have to twist my arm, I believed her. Who was I to second guess the esthetician with the fortune teller mother whom I am sure inherited those same abilities. She took a photo for her own keeping and then gave me the wax heart to take home.

I think it was definitely a sign. I mean, look at that heart. We all believe what we want to believe, and I believe this heart is definitely trying to say something.
