Many of my clients are at the beginning or in the midst of an awakening — and since I’m a believer in reincarnation, a return to what they’ve known or practiced before.
It’s an exciting, nerve-wracking time when weird shit starts to happen. Maybe it was happening all along, but you just started to take credence in the signs. What I’ve found is that the Universe/Divine/Goddess is gentle, for the most part. I mean, we’ve got the pressure of these mortal bodies but eternity is the real timeframe. No one is judging how fast you get to an imagined finish line that says “Congrats. You have found yourself!”
Still, it’s easy to want to know WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON. You want blueprints and coordinates and a 5 year plan. Hell, I wanted angels to blow a trumpet in my ear and announce my LIFE PURPOSE. If you’ve read “The Reluctant Tarot Reader”, you know how rough the road as I uncovered my gifts. The last thing I wanted to be was woo because it was corny, dismissed by society and renounced by the church (though you’d be surprised at how many intellectuals and religious folk quietly come see me). It is especially difficult if your family/community does not understand why you are pursuing a path that is different from the one they imagined for you.
Exploring what is true for your life isn’t selfish. In fact, discovering who you are at this moment in time – and allowing yourself to change — is extremely brave. If you are a healer, be a healer (or whatever term suits you). I had no idea what “healer” meant when people labeled me as such — and went on the thrilling and arduous quest to become one. And I’m still becoming who I am and changing and seeking. That will never stop, no matter how many bodies I try on.
Clients will say, “I just want to get there, you know?” as their path appears dark and I reply, “Yeah, I understand — but the good news is that there is no there.”
Be gentle with yourself like the Universe is gentle with you. There is no there. Just now — and forever. 🙂
