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

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…

And I felt like I stepped into a totally new way of being… me as a career woman doing Energy Medicine.

Freedom is what I feel!

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 :-).

Do you see me?

Sometimes what a child’s soul says to their parent:

“I see you, do you see me?”

Take time to be still and to watch your children free from judgment, criticism, or the need to correct.

Take time to see them for who they are.

Perfect and imperfect. Beautiful and learning, just like you.

Being a parent is a challenge for a reason. Children are a blessing and come with much to teach us. They come with just the right combination of knowing how to melt our hearts and also what buttons to push so that we may grow into better human beings. They provide us with plenty of opportunities to practice love, kindness, patience, and compassion. And in return they give us their open mind and open heart to make our impression on. It can be tough being a parent, but remember it can be tough being a kid sometimes too.

In your journey as a parent keep in mind that at any time you can ask God to help you in your parenting. Sometimes this is the strength we need to know we are not alone.

God please help me to be a good parent and to honor who my children are as they grow wholly into themselves.

Thank you God for my beloved children.

Amen.

Dare You song

Good song. Good lyrics. Just sharing. :-)

Dare You

by Hardwell

We’re a million lonely people
All together on this needle in the sky
Afraid of heights
And your dreams were made illegal
By the laws of lesser evil we call life
But not tonight

I dare you to love
I dare you to cry
I dare you to run
I dare you to try
I dare you to fall
And lay on the ground
I dare you to feel
I dare you to be here now

You’re an outline of a vision
That you had when we were children yesterday
You watch it fade
Let your heart be your religion
Let it break you out of this prison you became
It’s not too late

I dare you to love
I dare you to cry
I dare you to run
I dare you to try
I dare you to fall
And lay on the ground
I dare you to feel
I dare you to be here now

I dare you
I dare you

Cemetery kiss blowing

My kids and I just returned from an AWESOME 10 day vacation! We traveled from Wisconsin across Lake Michigan on the Lake Express Ferry and drove inland to Morrice, Michigan where I am from. We got to enjoy family and friends and make new memories. It was priceless!

We also got to go and visit Nama, my Mom, at the cemetery where she is buried. We brought a gift for her, a hummingbird wind chime to hang on the hook behind her gravestone. It was a special way for us to include her on this trip and to make a memory of her for my children. Little did I know she would show up.

After my son hung the wind chime and we spent some time at her gravesite we piled into the car and drove through the cemetery towards the exit. As we approached the exit I prompted my kids to say goodbye by saying, “Goodbye Nama, we love you.” They repeated it without missing a beat, “Goodbye Nama, we love you.” But then in that very moment something unexpected happened. My Mom spontaneously appeared to me through my mind’s eye and I could hear her say “I love you too.” Then she also blew a kiss to my children and without missing a beat Gavin turned around, aimed back at her gravesite, and blew her a kiss too. Unbeknownst to himself he returned the favor to her and also melted my heart.

It goes to show that the connection with lost loved one’s, even those we’ve never met, have a special place in our life. Even if the connections are never revealed to us they still take place and a special communication is shared. <3
