Along with the family changes with my son moving out-of-state, my parents buying a condo in Florida and my husband and I adopting a new puppy, there has also been a push to move in new directions with my work.
In September, I led my very first spiritual retreat to Sedona, AZ with twelve other sensitive souls. This was quite a feat for someone who used to find a half hour in Wal-Mart to be entirely too much stimulation. In November, I started working more actively with Subtle Energy Beings, Nature Angels, and Crystals which led to my work with attuning crystals as a means to connect with the Spiritual helpers around us.
And now, in two days, I will be sitting at my very own booth doing readings at the Great Conjunction Expo in Hudson, Ohio where my name alone will be on the booth sign.
My introvert self is climbing under the bed right now.
I’ll let her hang out there for a little bit, but then I’ll coax her back out.
Why you ask (knowing of course that I am the one doing the asking – note the emphasis on WHY!)?
Because I know deep in my heart that every time I push myself to move into new circumstances and connect with new people, I am always glad I did. Looking back, I see that is how so many wonderful people are now in my life. If I’d stayed under the bed, I never would have met them. Nor, frankly, would I be doing this work that I love so much (because stepping out as someone with intuitive abilities was another thing that sent me under the bed for a good long while!).
I’m sharing this because I feel we are all getting the nudge to move into new waters in some form or another. I have several clients who find themselves looking for a new job or having a long-term relationship end. Many of my colleagues are exploring new avenues in their work too. Some friends and loved ones are even relocating to new cities, states or even countries.
All of this tells me that I am probably not alone in feeling like climbing under the bed sometimes. After all, change can be a challenge for even the most hardy of us. For those of us who are sensitive, even the slightest ripples have an effect.
So how do we navigate the shifting going on in our lives? For me, it has become a matter of doing my very best to surrender – to trust that my Spirit and Divine helpers will keep me on the path of my highest good, even if my intellect has no idea what that path is.
I am also finding being kind to myself helps. As much as I would like to just stroll through life shifts without batting an eye, that just doesn’t seem to be how I’m wired. Accepting that, and being kind to myself through the process, seems to make things a little easier.
Reaching out helps too. Thank you to Polly and Debbie who so kindly offered to help out this weekend at my booth. Just knowing they will be there to support me has made a huge difference! Thank you also to those in my community who have promised to come see me, those who have helped me figure out all the details for having a booth, and those who have sent me encouraging messages! I am very grateful for you all. I am also grateful to my Spiritual Support Team (my Angels and Spirit Guides) who keep assuring me they have this all under control. I am so glad that someone does. They also promise that I will be meeting many new and wonderful friends while I’m there. I hope you are one of them!
So, in closing, I’m glad you are joining me on this journey of branching out. So nice to know there will be other “branches” to bump into out there!
Sending much love to you all!
