You don’t have to be a religious zealot or tree-hugging, woo-woo nut to acknowledge that GUS is talking to us all the time. Seeing signs is one of the ways Divine Intelligence speaks. Those signs don’t always come in through a bolt of lightning or a puff of smoke, but they sure as shit can […]

Hey Gorgeous, if you want success on your fertility journey, you’ve got to have the mindset for it. It’s time to kick fear, negativity, doubt, shame, jealousy, and the whole clown car of low vibe fertility journey BS to the curb. I’m your host, Roseanne Austin, fertility mindset master, former prosecutor and recovering type A control freak perfectionist.

I use the power of mindset to get pregnant naturally and have my baby boy at 43. Despite years of fertility treatment failure, I help women across the globe beat the odds on their fertility journey, just like I did. Get ready for a quick hit of confidence, joy, feminine badassery, and loads of hell yes for your fertility journey.

It’s time to get fearless, baby. Fearlessly fertile. Let’s do this. Welcome to the Fearlessly Fertile podcast, episode 179, the power of seeing signs, the woodpecker story. Hey loves, this week I wanted to share something that I’ve actually never shared before about my fertility journey. And I decided to share it for two reasons.

One, I honestly think that we as human beings have been hobbled spiritually. I’m not sure if it’s the school system, governments, culture, bad experiences with organized religions, and the pedophilia that runs like a wolf in sheep’s clothing amongst many of the once trusted institutions, personal hubris, or what?

Perhaps it’s a combination of all of those things, but suffice it to say that many of us have a complicated, distant untrusting relationship perhaps with our spiritual side. I want to help you move past all that bullshit and reconnect spiritually. And the second reason why I’m sharing this with you is I want to give you some real non woo woo examples of how there are signs everywhere.

If you’re willing to fucking open your eyes. Drop the stories and see them. It’s simple. All of this started a few days ago when I was out in our backyard, which feels a lot like a park. And if you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know what I mean. And I was in meditation early in the morning before Asher and my husband got up.

And I was asking Gus, God universe source for a sign about where I’m headed next in my work. Basically what Gus wanted me to know, think about as I make plans for expansion, bigger events, more books and so on. And, in the blink of an eye, a woodpecker appeared, plain as day, on the biggest, most arborist manicured tree we have in the yard.

I could see its red plume. He looked at me and started pecking away. It was crazy. I asked and received. There were no other birds, nothing else out there, just out of nowhere, this woodpecker appeared. My fertility journey taught me well, so I immediately researched the spiritual meaning of a woodpecker and was blown away.

I had never looked that up before. The bottom line spiritual meaning, you know, of being visited by a woodpecker based on many different resources that I consulted includes resourcefulness, seeing opportunity, abundance, constant learning, spiritual development, innovation, protection, perseverance, and growth of the home and family.

That that shit blew me away. And later that day, I was telling my husband about the woodpecker and he laughed. He reminded me of something I completely forgot about. He reminded me that we were plagued by a woodpecker at our property in California forever. We had that woodpecker, that woodpecker at our window.

Every morning to wake us up. We fucking hated that thing. We hated him! I begged my husband to shoot him. And it was funny because at the time my husband was a SWAT sergeant and was in charge of the snipers and I was begging him, get a sniper out here to have him pick off this frickin woodpecker. And he would just laugh at me.

But what was interesting is when I thought about this story and my husband and I chatting about it, what was even crazier is that woodpecker showed up and showed up consistently before Asher came. And it was even more insane because My husband reminded me again that the woodpecker came back and would peck at Asher’s door when Asher was a baby.

And my husband would get so pissed ’cause he thought that Woodpecker was gonna wake Asher up. And it was really intriguing to me that one, like I had completely forgotten about all that. And it blew me away that that woodpecker showed up right in in the time before we brought Asher into the world. But also he was there when Asher was born.

And when I was asking for guidance, asking for insight, connecting to my intuition, connecting to God universe source, the woodpecker’s presence has been all around us and is back in our lives again. And so I know that the skeptics listening to this might say, you know, like, ah, that’s not the same woodpecker.

Well, am I under the illusion that this was the same woodpecker? Of course not. Duh. But I’m not under the delusion that it’s all a coincidence. As I said a few moments ago, my journey taught me well. It taught me that what we see with our egoic eyes and through our egoic perspective, it just doesn’t mean shit.

It’s one part of the equation. It’s not all of it. I failed 84 times before Asher arrived. Eighty fucking four. If I let that shit distract me from what I knew in my heart to be true that Asher was coming, I am 100 percent certain that I would have given up. I’d be a bitter bitch right now, quietly hating on every happy woman with a baby.

I saw, telling myself that I didn’t have a choice, Gus hates me, and eventually pushing my husband away, then claiming to be happily child free. What the fuck is that? That, my loves, is what happens when you don’t pull your head out of your ass and connect with a truth that is showing itself to you all the time.

Truth is being revealed to you all the time. Signs are all around you right now. I am certain of it. For everyone, the quote unquote signs are different. They become more and more profound the more that you tune in. So if this conversation is getting under your skin and you’re like, Ah, fuck this. Okay, great.

That’s totally fine. Come back to it. You know, maybe someday you’ll be open to it. But there are going to be those of you listening to this that really get it. That probably have been seeing signs. And this is the loving nudge that you needed to just lean in. Seeing the signs is part of your connection to faith or your higher power.

The belief that this desire in your heart is there because it was meant for you. Now, you hear me say that all the time, but it won’t actually mean shit to you. Until you open your heart up to seeing the signs all around. Now, let me be clear, seeing signs doesn’t mean that you start seeing dead people, smartass.

It means that you open your heart and mind to the intuitive hits and the ways that nature and God Universe Source communicate. Sometimes it’s through other people. Like someone paying for your coffee, holding the door open for you, a smile from a stranger when you really need it. Or the form of the Kenyan woman that I talked about in my first book.

Other times it could be a random call from someone you haven’t talked to in a while but were strangely thinking about. There may be some of you that hear this and will come up with something snarky to say, but don’t worry baby, I’m praying for you. I’m still praying for you. My prayer is that you will get out of your head and into your heart because that is what will lead you to your baby.

Your mind will give out way before your body ever will. Just ask my 52 year old miracle mama who’s now 14 weeks pregnant and didn’t give up for shit. Okay, that’s the power of being open, being willing to see signs, being willing to trust yourself. And being willing to see beyond what ego is going to tell you.

You’re too old. You’ve failed too many times. Who has a baby at this point in your life? Shouldn’t you just hang it all up? Think about that. And it’s really extraordinary to me how somehow being negative and looking at the shitty side of things somehow has more credence in our lives. What if the real magic in your life and the real truth in your life is that you do get to believe in the dream, you do get to pursue that, you are bigger than they tell you that you are, you are more than you have been seduced into thinking, you are way more powerful, and your desires are closer than you think.

What if that was true? Instead of the fake news that fear, negativity, and doubt from the outside world, and more often than not from the inside world that has been conditioned within us, is trying to distract you with. So let me ask you this. What signs are showing up in your life? Are you seeing any? Have you completely closed yourself off to the magic all around you?

Does this conversation nut you up because you think it’s silly? Are you a trust the science person even though that some of the best scientists in the world acknowledge that the more that they learn, the more they believe in divine intelligence and God universe source? And you have to ask, has that quote unquote science earned your trust?

If it requires you to be completely separated from your heart, mind and body work together, and if your soul is screaming, give me a chance. I know this baby can come, but the quote unquote science is telling you you’re too fucking old, you’re too fucking stupid to keep going and that you need a litany of drugs to have any hope of making this dream come true.

Is that something you want to trust, or would you rather put your trust in something that says yes and you can have both, there’s good in both, and you don’t have to be silenced in the process? Just a thought mama. Think about how much more confident, powerful, and resourceful you would be if all you had to do was tune in, see the signs that your baby was coming all around you.

That doesn’t mean that you’re perfect and that you never have a moment of doubt ever again, but shit, you’re gonna have limitless resilience when you’re willing to see the signs. Would you be so fucking afraid to keep trying if you could see the signs? Would you keep beating yourself up? Would you stop punishing yourself for holding out for the right partner?

Would you stop holding back, penny pinching, and affirming lack by cutting corners and forgoing the treatment and support you desire because You’re perpetuating someone else’s lie that it’s too much. What are you missing out on because you can’t see the truth all around you? The idea that your failures are signs that you should stop is fucking preposterous.

All quote unquote failures tell you is that the way That you tried didn’t work this time for the time being. That doesn’t mean it’ll never work. You have to think beyond the confines of the negativity that we’ve been indoctrinated with, love. See through the eyes of your highest vision for yourself.

What God universe source wants for you, even if it feels like, you know, that’s really out there and all, all this shit, like give yourself a chance. So you might be asking yourself, how do I start seeing signs? Well, the good news is it’s actually quite simple. The first step in all of this is being willing to admit.

That you don’t know or see everything you don’t. I don’t. No one does. So rather than just digging in your heels to a negative story, you want to ask from my higher perspective, what could I be shown here? What am I being shown? And, and ask that question from an, a truly open perspective, because look, the, the lazy position.

Is just to accept what the fake news of fear wants to show you and this is coming from a place of true curiosity. What could I be shown here? What am I being shown? What’s the whole picture? Now, you may be surprised. That is just a tiny, tiny little twist. The result can be profound. The shift is, it, it’s just.

Tiny, tiny, but what we do in small increments can have a monumental impact cumulatively. So the first step, as I said, just admit that you don’t know or see everything you don’t. So just ask, what am I being shown here truly from an open place? And look, there’s no question in my mind, there are signs showing up in your life all the time.

The better question is, are you going to be the woman that sees them, heeds them and is obedient to their wisdom? And you know, one of my most beloved Miracle Mamas, and you’ll remember from her, her podcast, I don’t remember what number it is, but beloved. Dr. Lucy. And I don’t recall if she shared this in her podcast, but you know what?

I know that she wouldn’t mind me sharing this with you here. She was seeing beautiful butterflies. Butterflies were her sign. And remember, her FSH was over a hundred! It was crazy! And she conceived her beautiful son naturally. So, that is another tangible. So, you’re not just hearing this from me. You’ll actually, you know, I strongly encourage you go back and listen to other women’s podcasts.

They will all talk about it in various ways, different ways, and sometimes the sign was, you know, getting past a story or, you know, however it showed up in their lives, but the signs always show up. People will talk about it in beautifully different ways, diverse ways, which is amazing. So it’s not just me.

Listen to their stories. And what signs do you take from their stories? Go back through this podcast, listen to those women’s stories, let them inspire you. Let them help you dig deeper and trust yourself more. Because in eight years of doing this work, there’s not a single woman I’ve met who has been successful in this journey that didn’t open her eyes to this.

And no doubt, she will share this goodness with her kids. See the signs, baby. And love, here’s the deal. In times of uncertainty and fear, you’ve gotta be the one mofo in the room that knows where she’s headed. That means having a clear head, steady hands, and a mindset of a woman who isn’t gonna let fear, doubt, or other people’s negativity stand in her fuckin way.

She sees signs, she takes leaps, and she doubles down. My Fearlessly Fertile Method program is for women who intend to get pregnant in the next 12 months and say, hell yes, to covering their bases.
