June first - thoughts

Tomorrow will be June 1st.  Seems only a short while ago we were welcoming the New Year. January 1st. I remember I was wondering if I was going to make my trip to New Zealand and fulfil what I had set up there. Then on Feb 3rd I was on the plane flying away. March 18th saw me return back home having fulfilled what I had set out to do, but I returned not physically well at all. Now it is nearly three months later and I'm only now beginning to feel ready to begin my Wednesday night groups, plus consider doing more than one thing per day. Its been a long journey and its not completed but I'm getting there.
Interestingly in the Fall three people told me my whole life would be different come the end of May. You can imagine where my thoughts went!  Well here is the end of May and yes my life is different. I have not been able to go and complete my activities this Spring, I'm still having to rest quite a lot. My regime has changed and I certainly am having to consider I'm not 45 or even 55 anymore. I'm not sure how this will look when its totally completed, but the journey I have been on has certainly made some changes to my outlook and considerations.
Before sitting down to type, I went to my Tarot Cards and asked what to consider for June 1st, the the symbology I picked was The Tower, King of Swords and King of Pentacles. Wow, I thought what am I going to do with those three so here goes:
"No matter what life brings you, when it comes in unexpectedly you will need to let go of your preconceived ideas and concepts and not hang onto them for dear life. Be open to embrace remembering that life is always wanting you to succeed. It want you to grow and become all of who you are. It is the restriction of hanging on and not free flowing which can be difficult and create more bumps in the road. Free flow, that's the key, knowing you are in command of your life and can recreate all that you want."
As I wrote this it reminded me of a client I recently had whose reading looked really good. Yes there was a transition, but it was close to the end. Everything looked upward, free flowing. But something was blocking. It was my client, herself not wanting to let go. She had been in an accident and the results were that she would not be the 'same' as she was before. As our conversation went on, I said "have patience, let go and know it will come to an end. If I did not see that I would be speaking to you differently." She was the issue, not life. Life was continuing at the pace it needed to. She didn't want it that way though, she wanted it like it was and it wasn't going to be.
This was a reminder for me to know my life would not be like it has been. I have to watch myself so I do not over schedule etc, but also I need to be looking ahead knowing life is full of surprises which can be great, and no matter the circumstances, one can overcome and be happy and fulfilled. 
All I can say in relation to June 1st....bring it on. I will accept, let go and go forward.

Are you using your mind, or are you on auto pilot

Recently I have had several clients who due to the amount of releasing work with me, do not have a lot to clear any more. Instead what we are working on is their conscious minds. Having their conscious minds begin to take command instead of being on auto pilot.
What does that mean? Well, when teaching my intensive "Plug Into Your Power" after learning the Tarot and the philosophy it tells us, I teach about consciousness. How important it is to know what you are thinking, as that is how the universe responds. Of course it is much more than just thinking, (the wand symbology of the Tarot) it is how much energy you put behind your thoughts (the cup symbology) and how you respond to situations (the sword symbology).
Most of us are on auto pilot. The habits of thinking, feeling and responding are not thought about. We just respond in the same old way.  You know the saying "if you do the same old thing, you will get the same result". Yes, we need to change our response to situations, we need to become aware of what we are thinking. We need to be sure our thoughts are reflecting what it is we want.
We have all heard this, we think we understand and know it. As you are aware I have not been well these last few months and I discovered when you are not well, your thinking begins to slip. You forget your goals, you forget what it is you want to feel in relation to you life. I guess I had to be brought back to zero in order to remember some basics.
Interestingly at the same time, several clients were needing to get their consciousness to work. Some to move beyond anxiety, some to create a new life, and some just to remember they can go for it.
I would suggest you look at your life and see if there are any areas in which you are gliding along on auto pilot, just accepting what ever is coming your way. It does not have to be like that.
For those of you who have my book Secrets for Living Happily, reread it. It has lots of goodies about becoming conscious and getting back on top of the 'thinking process'.

Getting Back to Blogging

Here it is over two months since I returned from New Zealand.  I'm finally well enough to sit here and write on my blog. Its been a long two months and its not totally over. But, I'm feeling better and can now expend the energy to type a few words bringing you up todate.
When I arrived back from NZ I was in quite a bit of pain in my arm muscles, leg muscles and unable to lift my arms over my head. I was also just tired out. Through a visit to my Dr and examining how I was with my massage therapist, we came to the conclusion that when I had some hot stone massages while in NZ, they released toxins into my body (which it is meant to do), but because of my travelling I did not drink enough water to help my body clear the toxins and they got stuck in my muscles.  So far that is still the best explanation I have had, which makes sense to me.
I have spent time with the Chiropractor, who helped a lot, and my massage therapist who is 1 hour away from me (so a good friend drove me there and back). One of the reasons for this is because I have not been able to sit for very long. Long enough to service my clients. Long enough to check my emails every day, but mostly I have spent the days lying down. Sleeping was difficult because of the aches and pains, pains especially in my shoulders. But since last Monday I visited a friends massage therapist here in Penticton and she worked with my shoulders in a different way and the pain subsided. Thank goodness, as it helped with my sleep.
During this two months it was also discovered that I was anemic and even with a course of iron pills from the last blood test I still am. So still on iron and other vitamins and minerals. These seem to help me feel a lot better, but not clear the aches and pains. It seemed every time I got to feeling well and had some energy everything came back and it was like I was back in the beginning. The last few days I have been feeling better so let's hope this time it lasts.
Oh yes, seeing I'm going on about my health, three weeks ago the aches and pains in my arms moved down into my wrists and then hands, especially my left one. This meant when I awoke my hands were almost useless for quite a few hours and then as the day went by they got stronger. The last two days my right one seems almost normal, and my left one is sore.  Typing this is certainly a strain for it. I'm sure you can imagine the panic that put into me - my hands - handling tarot cards etc. But I managed.
I thought it was time I began once more to post. For those of you who follow the movie blog I have not been able to sit long enough to go to a movie. I may try one this afternoon - will have to see.
But thanks to many friends who have been sending healing, my health practitioners, hopefully I will be fully mended soon. As it was I have had to cancel everything I had planned. Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver all had to be cancelled I just could no get there plus I did not have the energy to do what I had planned on doing. The only thing I have been doing, as stated is attend to my clients. When the phone rings I'm there. Usually one maybe two clients a day.
I have had some interesting clearing sessions and thoughts lately, so before my left hand totally ceases on me I will stop until next time.
See you soon
