The wisdom of a weedy garden

July 2014 092 (2)

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 :-).

My words 3 years ago and yet I think I am still in the same place, a good place to be…

I can feel it. My soul wanting to jump out and go in every different direction and simultaneously just sitting there centered in my being. As I open myself to the flow I see myself again, my soul purpose like the body of a spider. Different arms reaching out to the world experiencing different gifts. A mother, a writer, a link to peace. A healer, a seer, and a light of love to others. But at the body of all of that threading and spinning of life is me, just simply me. That’s where my deepest purpose lies.

With good heart and good deed it seems that’s where anyone’s purpose lies, because the truest purpose anyone came here to fulfill… is life. My multifaceted purpose is clear at different times and in different ways as my life unfolds, but the central purpose is always the same. I know that I am at home anywhere, when I am at home within myself. From that divine inner space three things are decided: I am to know me, to be me, and to share me. It doesn’t have to get any more complicated than that. In being myself in the truest sense possible I will teach others to be expressions of their soul as well. Oh the webs we will weave together, if I could only see them now in their highest potential. A true sight of the intricate masterpiece that is life, glistening in the light of God’s divine hand.

Countdown to AcuEnergetics®

I am so super excited because in about a week and a half I will be in training for Level 2 AcuEnergetics®! And there is also talk of Level 3 and 4 coming to the U.S. for the first time ever in 2015. This is truly a dream coming true for me. I know I have a distance to go yet with becoming a fully certified AcuEnergetics® Practitioner but it IS happening and I could not be more excited to be a part of this truly groundbreaking modality!

To learn more listen to this interview with Denise from Healing Waters Health Center in Hudson, WI, which is the only host site for AcuEnergetics® USA. http://www.stillwateracupuncturenutrition.com/reviewpage.html

Six months later after taking Level 1 AcuEnergetics® ‘Skills for Living’ and I cannot believe how much this weekend course has changed my life. I literally use something learned from this class every day whether it is a meditation for myself, a first-aid technique on one of my kids, or helping my husband de-stress. I wish every household had these valuable tools and maybe someday they will, one can dream ;-).

 

 

Yay! My Article was Electronically Published

Last month I submitted an article to the Edge Magazine on the topic of nature and spirituality. It is titled Fighting Kids and Frazzled Mother soothed by Mother Nature and speaks of one such occurrence where the challenges of my day were made better by connecting with nature. The article was not printed in the paper version of the Edge Magazine but it was published electronically. I am thrilled as this is my second article to be published!

Animals and Dreams

I often get images of animals as spiritual communication. There’s a whole language that the animal world carries that can come through in the sighting of any particular animal. Take the bald eagle for example, it is often marked as a sign of spirit being with you and divinity at work.

A few weeks ago I had a dream about fuzzy black spiders with white markings across their legs and on their bodies. Again last night one came to me in my dream showing itself so vividly that I could not help but wonder what message it had for me. Sometimes I find if I watch the animal it will express its message to me. I think I will call in the fuzzy white and black spider now and ask it what it wishes to share.

As I do this I feel an overlay of the spider, its arms moving like fingers. This feels like an expression that I have been busy at work. Then my eyes are drawn to the unique markings upon its body. It feels like all of the work I have been doing has been feeding the body and more deeply, feeding the body of my divinity as the markings are white an expression of the presence of divinity. So, through my work I have been feeding the divinity within me. I would agree with this statement.

After processing the information just as you have read it I bring my attention back to this fascinating being speaking to me through vision and un-auditory sound. I next see the fuzzy spider with two knitting needles and a project in progress. White yarn, or perhaps its web, is hanging down from the metal knitting needles. To me in this moment the needles symbolize or stand out as being man-made and the thread-like webbing as more natural material. This tells me that in my work I am using man-made tools to create something of natural essence. I am weaving, as spiders do, a great sign of creation. But what is the spider speaking of that I am creating? I ask…

“A tapestry of life.” is the reply. I am in the man-made world but what I create has essence of spirit… of my spirit. I am weaving through my spirit and into the world and what is being created is of real and lasting substance. I have a huge smile on my face with this beautiful feeling. I know I will keep on creating and weaving my spirit into being whether through service or prayer, writing or drawing, reading or experiencing. The creation of my life is endless and contains many facets that in turn create the whole being of who I am. And I am still being created… by me.

I will have to process this message further. It feels like it contains more than what my conscious mind can understand in this moment at 9:47 a.m. on a Tuesday with my daughter waiting patiently for me upstairs being entertained by cartoons.

In the meantime here is a link you might like to browse if you have had an animal that too has been coming to you.

——————–

Chakras are spiritual centers of your body and are likened as spinning wheels of light. This is where the energy of your soul filters into the energy of your physical self. It is ideal for your chakras to be open and balanced although sometimes these centers can shut-down which in turn can shut-down aspects of yourself. Maybe you are having issues with your root chakra and have not been feeling secure, perhaps you find it hard to keep your throat chakra open and speak your truth, or maybe your sense of yourself is dulled at the center of the solar plexus chakra. There is so much to be explored and communicated through the chakra system and insights to the state of your being are only a session away.

My Guardian Angel

Last week I had an appointment with a woman who paints Guardian Angels. This was the second time I had tried making an appointment with her and I was very excited to see what would come through from my Guardian Angel. Unfortunately the appointment had to be cancelled.  This was the second time our appointment had been cancelled so I took a hint from the Universe and let it go. Maybe there was a reason that I wasn’t supposed to have her create an image of my Guardian Angel for me.

Leading up to the cancellation every time I would think of my Guardian Angel I would get the same visual of him. I could see him with blondish-brown hair and wearing bright green. It was a consistent and beautiful image so afterwards I reasoned that I guess I didn’t need someone to paint me a picture to know what my angel looked like, I could see him myself.  Then yesterday I got the inspiration to create my own image.

I got out some paper and colored pencils and I went downstairs to my healing room. I sat on my healing table with all of my materials and I called on my Guardian Angel to guide me. I closed my eyes and asked him to show me what to draw. First, I could see the outline of his head and a ball held about center to his heart. It felt like he was holding out this little globe of energy to me. I selected my color, bronze, and began outlining his face and the ball of light on the page. Soon I was coloring in his hair and almost too perfectly finding the same color of green that I saw in my image to color in his clothing. Next, I was guided to use the color white and outline big finger-like wings that stretched up to the sky. I continued to create the image moving as I felt to and selecting the colors as I could see them pop-up in my head. Every once in a while I would pause and ask my angel directly, “What next?” Getting images of birds, an eye, and a star in the sky, I added these elements to our creation as well. By the end of the picture I noticed that it wasn’t just my Guardian Angel in the picture it was me too. The flower, the star, the sky, these are things that mean something to me. Elements of myself expressed through our creation. Through my hands, through my life, it is not just me, it could never be. My Guardian Angel perhaps is a bigger part of my life, and who I am, than what I realize. We are all blessed in this way as it is with great purpose that we all have a Guardian Angel in our life. They bring many blessings- some seen and some unseen- and are always right there for us.

“Thank you for being in my life and helping me, my dear, sweet Guardian Angel.”
