One of my favorite spiritual phenomenon to talk about is the cledon. It’s a message from Spirit that is innocently and unknowingly delivered to you by someone or something else. And, once you tune into the cledons all around you, you’ll be truly amazed at the personal and powerful messages Spirit has for you.
Though the word “cledon” sounds a little bit star trek-ish, (I get a kick out of it when people refer to it as a klingon!) it’s a concept that actually originated in ancient Greece. For our ancestors in the Greek civilization, and for 1400 years, it was common practice to pray to the gods for guidance and then go out into the world to get a message- specifically they prayed to the god Apollo for intuitive oracle guidance. People expected to get their insight from Apollo through day-to-day interactions; for example, they’d overhear a conversation between strangers at the local market, or a friend would unknowingly deliver a message over dinner.
The cledon is a way for us to tune into the messages that we need to know about that will be delivered to us through sound, and from an innocent or unwitting source. A cledon grabs our attention as if out of a lot of noise we zero in on just what we needed to hear- something that rises above everything else. We distinctly feel the connection to the message as the synchronicity becomes obvious. It’s also easy to discount once its passed as “ nothing more than coincidence” because our innate connection to the consciousness in the world around us has been conditioned out of us.
We still receive cledons all the time today. You might hear a conversation at the mall in which two random strangers say just what you need to hear. Or, perhaps you’re having lunch with a friend who says something that answers your question on what to do next in your career. You may even be listening to me do a reading with a caller on my radio show or with someone at one of my events and just know that what I told them is also a message for you. (I get many fascinating emails from radio listeners and event attendees who have had this experience. I love hearing them!) Common cledons can come from other people, songs on the radio, the T.V., and billboards.
