Just being me and hoping to inspire you, from my light to yours…

Last night I got the unique opportunity to take my children to a sacred drumming ceremony. It was in honor of the 8th Anniversary of the World Drum. The World Drum was created in Norway in 2006 and has been travelling across the world to many countries and many people uniting our sacred tie as human beings with one beat, the heart beat of the Earth. Its focus is on Peace and Environmental Issues.

My night wasn’t going so well. My daughter did not nap at preschool and was very crabby and my son too seemed to not be in a pleasant mood. I had wanted to take them out for a walk somewhere, take them to dinner, and then meet at the location of the World Drum event at 6:00pm for the ceremony. But, as often happens with children in your life, plans changed quickly based on the current condition of the child. I needed to bend to accommodate them and not take them out and about and potentially stretch them even further emotionally. So we stayed home, made dinner at home, and unfortunately the crabbiness continued. There were several points where I felt like just forgetting going to the World Drum event. But there was a piece of me that just wouldn’t let it go, I couldn’t get it out of my mind. So, I took the dare of this being a big mistake and brought my two crabby kids to the event in hopes that it would go well. I am so grateful that I did and was very thankful my children were peaceful for the experience– although who am I kidding, while in the presence of the World Drum how could one not feel peace.

My son Gavin happened to be holding the World Drum when it was time for the reading of the prayer. All other drums were silent as he alone got to beat the heart beat of Mother Earth on the World Drum during this very special moment in ceremony. It was very moving and I was very happy for this special opportunity given to him.

Here are a few pictures from our night: my children playing sacred flutes and Gavin with the World Drum.

Trust and Follow

This morning I dreamt of a Bald Eagle. A symbol of spirit and of freedom. It was at eye level with me flying through the air. Its majestic head was so close as it looked back at me and said, “Follow me.”

There are so many changes going on right now in my life. I have just acquired a new place to work from as an Energy Healing Practitioner. I have been working on a Do It Yourself Energy Medicine class that I am teaching in a of couple weeks and am hoping to also turn it into an online e-course. And I am writing a short story that I will submit as a Kindle Single, with the hopes of it becoming a series. My working title is: Mystic Moments of Your Average Mom.

True to my form, I cannot just have one thing going at a time. This is why I am grateful for Eagle to have shown himself in my dreamscape. Even though yes, I have a lot on my plate, yes I am juggling several things amongst fitting in home life. And, yes it can seem overwhelming; if I let my mind go there. But Eagle is a beautiful messenger that tells me all is indeed in proper positioning and that no matter what challenges, time crunches, or hours needed to be put in I am indeed taking the right steps in securing my future. All I need to do is keep trusting that what I am doing is what is supposed to be done. Just trust and follow spirit.

I love the simplicity that it brings and the feeling that none of this has to be hard. Just trust and follow. I will know the steps to take when it is time to take them.

grasshopper

I have been seeing SO many grasshoppers for like the past three weeks! Seriously just sitting outside on my patio I saw upwards of 10. So hello grasshopper I know you are trying to tell me something. ;-)

While outside in the glorious September sun I quieted my mind, connected to my team of spiritual guidance and asked, “What are the grasshoppers telling me?”

“You’re ready to jump. Jump to your state of being, being higher.” They went on to further lend their always welcome insight and told me, “It’s not about what you have to give up to be a higher stated being. It’s about focusing yourself within these things that already make you exceptional. Finding your flow there and opening the valve to express more of that. Like attracts like, so be like the like.”

I thought about this and thought about how sometimes, or maybe a lot of the time with certain things, I do get stuck focusing on what I need to eliminate in order to be better. A certain food, a certain issue with myself or another person, a certain feeling or emotion. But today I get that currently that’s the wrong perspective and that I can be more of what I want, and actually more of what I already am, by focusing on what is already exceptional and focusing less on eliminating what is not. Yes, of course I have heard this before, as I’m sure so have you, but today as another layer of development peels off, I guess I just get it with deeper understanding.

The grasshopper telling me to jump is not asking me to make any drastic changes. It means jump to a different way of being that is more in alignment with what I want in my life and who I am. And as I watched that quick little creature jump from one part of the patio to another I understood that it’s not that I’m on different ground. It’s just that I need to be able to see from a different perspective on the same ground. So thank you wise grasshopper. I think I will try. :-)

Things Change…

So I know it has been a long time since I last posted a blog. Between my last consistent Tuesday post and today I was halted by an unusable computer due to the hard drive breaking and needing replacement. And then honestly I just totally fell out of the habit of doing it. I feel ok about it all. I know things change and while I have spent a dedicated 2 years writing this weekly blog, and I so treasure your readership and allowing me to share my words with you, I have new ventures that need more of my attention.

As you can see I have finally put up my car magnets and am working hard at building a clientele as an Energy Healing Practitioner. This is awesome! And I can hardly believe this is my life as I love this work I do! I am also working on the content for a Do It Yourself Energy Medicine class I will be teaching in early October and am pulling out my spiritual/paranormal memoir to get that going again. Plus, I think my biggest goal is to separate home life from work life. Up until this point they have been very blended. Working while the children were sleeping, or playing, or sometimes even zoned out on the technology. But what I really really want to establish is set working hours and be able to free up my time to be a totally present Mom with my family. That feels like a happy balance but unfortunately my blog will most likely be at the bottom of my work-list for awhile at least. This blog will most definitely still exist and I will continue to post but now it will just be random and not weekly. I hope you understand.

My “new way of life” started on Tuesday. In celebration of new beginnings I sent my kids off to school…

I put my car magnets up…

I met with a fabulous client and had a great session…

I went and chopped off 11.5 inches of hair and donated to locks of love…

Freedom is what I feel!

Until next time…

Peace to you,

My garden has weeds. And my garden is beautiful.

This is the phrase that comes to me as I sit in my sunroom appreciating the beauty despite the obviously overtaking weeds.

I think deeper about myself.

There are certain physical attributes I posses and could liken to weeds– cellulite, acne, pot-belly, dry rough heels, wrinkles, scars, spider veins, yellowed teeth.

Then I smile to myself and notice the parallel here…

My garden has weeds.

And my garden is beautiful.

Coming Out

There’s a coming out process to being an intuitive and a healer. I didn’t just become who I am over night and I didn’t just go broadcasting these peculiarities about myself to the world. It has been a slow and steady walk with myself. Trying out something new and then shrinking back into myself and asking, “Is this real!?” or telling myself, “I won’t be able do that!” But eventually as I kept practicing to build my intuition and healing skills I began to trust. I learned to trust in those random whisperings that pop out from the world around me and to trust in the greater space held within me that really is connected to all. No, I don’t understand everything quite yet, but I have a good heart and a good base to lead by and I continue to trust in spirit both within myself and around me. You can’t open new doors if you don’t move forward. And I am ready to move forward. Even if the world around me is not ready to accept me, I accept myself.

So here it is my most recent step to coming out is purchasing car magnets. Yes, I will actually be driving around my neighborhood, to my children’s school, in our community, and all the surrounding areas I go to with this plastered on the side of my car for all the world to see. Will I be nervous to do this? Yes! I am fully aware people will think what they will but I will still be me despite it. I am at a point in my development where I can acknowledge to myself that what I have to offer is worthy and that I can help others. This is just another step in that same direction.

You see it here in the box and not on my car yet because it is still summer and I am relishing these day’s with my children. I look forward to putting it up closer to when school starts and will definitely share when that happens.

I hope that you are enjoying your beautiful summer too :-).
