Whenever I am going through a time of turmoil (which often means a time where I need to make a life altering decision–I am a Libra), the Universe uses music to communicate with me. It will usually be a new pop song that speaks to who I am in that moment and what I am going through–my theme song.

There was a point in my life where my theme song was “Not Ready To Make Nice” by the Dixie Chicks but for the past year or so, it has been Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger.” Over the past few weeks, my theme song has changed, filtering out Kelly and replacing “Stronger” with Daughtry’s “Waiting For Superman.”

The Universe uses this song to catch my attention; like tonight, it started playing the minute I started my car while leaving class tonight. I talk to angels, I count the stars, I make wishes and I dance with strangers. I have been knocked down too many times lately and I can honestly say that I am waiting for someone to come and help me back up. I even know who that someone is…it is me. I have always been my own Superman, a self-rescuing princess–I am just waiting for that part of me to return. So the words fit perfectly with my present life situation.

Per usual, the Universe never stops there in regards to musical signs. I often need more clarification and validation so the theme song is always followed by an older song that doesn’t get as much radio play, one you wouldn’t expect to hear on the more popular radio stations. This second song usually tells me what it is that I really need, what my heart is calling out for. Tonight, it was Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now.”

But until my Superman version of myself returns, I am just going to have to continue talking to angels, counting the stars, making wishes on passing cars and dancing with strangers.
