Having just passed another birthday, I thought that it was a good time to evaluate who I am and how I bill myself to the world. On my art blog, I posted today about calling myself an artist, so I thought that here on my healing blog, I would proclaim that yeah, I see myself as a healer, too.
When I first started on this spiritual path eight years ago, it took a lot of self-talk for me to believe that the results that I was getting for myself and my clients was real. I would have these amazing results happen like watching horrible poison ivy blisters go down in 15 minutes, or connecting a client with her dead grandfather via a bunny rabbit he had always wanted to give her. Things that I would have no reasonable way of knowing I would know, and things that western medicine says can’t happen, did. Gradually, over time, I would just learn to trust that what I was perceiving was at least a metaphor for “truth” and I leaned to just go with what I was being shown.
This path has taken me through a lot of ups and downs. Sacrifices have had to have been made, such as time spent at healing my own issues, things I’ve had to face about myself, and people I’ve had to leave behind because they’re on different paths. However, I’ve been rewarded with amazing insights into my own inner workings, I don’t feel helpless and tossed about by the things beyond my control, and the peace that I’ve found is overwhelming.
I keep talking about the need to surrender the illusion of control that we as human beings think that we have in our lives, and that for me, has been, and continues to be my major issue. Having given up trying to control X,Y, and Z, I am constantly bemused by new things that I’m asked to surrender. However, a very wise man and much better healer than I am, is constantly pointing out to me, surrender is not about holding your hands up as if you’re in a robbery. Surrender is about opening your hands in order to receive the gifts that the Universe is just waiting to give you bountifully and beyond your wildest dreams.
It’s sometimes hard to come up with photos and graphics for these postings without paying a fortune for professional shots from stock photo sites. So, I thought it was rather clever of me to use my head shot and add these little graphics on top of my face. While I don’t take myself very seriously, I am passionate about what I’m being shown by the Divine every day. I then use my skills honed as a public school teacher, and research with colleagues to figure out ways to then turn my insights into benefits for my clients. So, here I am, wishing myself Happy Birthday, thanking the Divine for my insights, and I’m filled with excitement with regard as to what another year of gifts will bring.
Should you wish to schedule a strategy session so that we could talk about how you can implement some of the concepts that I talk about in your own life, please contact me at… firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you feel that you have intuitive qualities, yet don’t know what to do with them? I had no idea when I started this process that I had any “special” abilities, so it’s taken hours of mentor ship to trust that what I was perceiving was real.
