Monday, August 1, 2011
But today, Metaphysical Monday that happens to be August 1, and the day that I had committed to announcing to months ago, I want to talk about a new phase of my life. You all know that I have a strange "sixth sense" that allows me to work with my Spirit Guides and communicate with animals. Well, on June 15, 2011 I had sent out some letters to friends and people I have worked with over the years (no family) to let them know that I had been nudged to share my gift on a professional basis.
My letter stated that I feel very strongly that I can help my community by helping those in it. I think there are a lot of souls out there right now who need the help and don't know where to find it. And I am willing to barter. We are a world that has lost it's spirituality and I would like to help bring it back one person at a time.
So anyway, back to the affects of the letter. I got plenty of calls and responses, just like I was hoping. And I did get to work on my "Spiritual dictionary" (I was a bit concerned that my Spirit Guides would not be able to help me enough on a professional basis; read=I was worried about charging people $$$, or bartering for my services), but the most amazing affect was on my confidence.
The letters revolved around the number 7. Our address is 7, of course lucky seven; and then I was doing 7 free Life Readings in the seventh month. My goal had been to send out 7 letters, but when I got to looking at addresses I coincidentally came up with 17. My first free Life Reading decided that she did want me to do a Tarot reading on her when we were done (I am careful not to depend on tools for my readings), and of course a 7 was the first card we pulled!
As the readings progressed and my confidence grew a bit, I found that I was not quite so shy about my gift. Like when we went to the Rivera's place to shear the rescue llamas and their dog had a nice long chat with me while we sheared away. A while later the owner of the dog was telling me about how she was feeling guilty about an accidental breeding that had happened; and I knew why it had happened but was not sure if the people would think I was a nutcase if I told them their dog had told me why.
Being the hesitant soul that I am, I sat on it all for a few days....and remembered how they were with their beloved bird, and how they had been with those llamas that they had lovingly fostered and I took a chance and sent them an e-mail AC (animal communication) consultation. I had written down everything I had learned while I was at their place from all those lovely critters. And you know what? They didn't think I was a nutcase at all, they truly appreciated the insight into their household.
It had all been so cute because the dog (a boston terrier) had won a battle to get to talk to me. The Rivera's have 4 Boston's and they all had come running up to greet me fighting over who got to talk first. Growling and snorting like flat faced dogs do, and then when the chaos was all over the group in general didn't have too much to say, except they sure were proud of their swimming pool! But one of them followed Tom and I when we went back to work and just chatted away, and when she was very adamant about something she would come over and quietly lick my leg and then go back to her corner and sit.
Again, an experience like that was one that I had to share with her owners. Especially knowing that they carried a bit of guilt when actually the whole thing had happened for a reason. I find that so often when I work with Spirit, which is why I have chosen to do this...there is a reason for everything, and we need to have some sort of Sprituality in our lives.
Speaking of spirituality. I had another hunch that I knew I needed to share with a friend. I hardly know this family; actually I really don't know them at all. This gentle man is the man who runs one of the Yahoo groups that I follow; an organic gardening group. He and his family recently suffered a terrible loss in their orchards, not only the loss of their fruit, but the stripping of the trees which of course means their imminent death.
He had been kind enough to help me via e-mail with a few of my very atypical and difficult high altitude gardening questions, but I still felt like some sort of stalker sending him and his wife a note letting them know that I had a very strong vibe that this was just not an orchard or fruit or $ issue like they were talking about on the group. I felt very strongly that it was personal and that he and his family needed to take some precautions.
You can NOT imagine my surprise when I received the story of his lifetime back. It is one I will read again and again. As a matter of fact I asked him if I could repost it here, and he is not comfortable with that. He did say that Creator told him to share the story with me, and I feel that it is because of the upheaval in my life at this time. Needless to say, I was correct in my assumption and they are taking all precautions; and they did appreciate my kind thoughts.
The seventh month has passed, and I had helped people that I didn't even think I might be able too. I will leave it up to the Spirit Guides and Creator, because obviously they have a plan for me. Thank you for the interesting few months; it's been a trip.
