(The future is a mystery to me… and I kind of like it that way.)
So I was reading a medium article talking about a Chinese energy healer who can create custom make healing potions out of thin air. They look like colorful plumes floating in the air. So, of course, I contacted her and asked if I could apprentice. I expected a no. For one she doesn’t speak English and I don’t speak Chinese.
But a few weeks after I emailed her I received a response from her translator that I was welcome to come visit her for a healing (between $300-500) and that maybe by the end of the year she would be holding some training classes. She’s in California, not clear around the world. But for now….. it’s just something I threw out into the universe. I’m not giving it any more thought.
I was talking to my daughter about this subject. She has very natural psychic abilities and I think she is more powerful than she will ever realize. She asked me how to find out where her strengths lie and how to expand on them. I told her it takes exploration, time, practice and a lot of trial and error. Everyone has some natural ability. Most people are really gifted with one specific talent, it’s just that most people aren’t fully aware of it, let alone working on it.
Some people are good at talking to spirits, some can see the future, some can move objects, put ideas or images in people’s minds, read people’s minds, talk to animals, on and on. These energetic abilities we are capable of are truly so vast and seemingly wild. It’s really that we simply aren’t taught to understand, appreciate and work on them, let alone master them.
I remember in college a psychology professor was telling us of a school in New Orleans that teaches people “occult” sciences, like intuition, skull reading, etc. He was looking right at me when he was telling us about it. I liked him a lot but when he wanted to hypnotize the class I became anxious and he let students opt out. I sat in the hallway waiting for him to finish.
as I was telling my daughter my own natural talents that I am aware of it struck me that I have never truly tried working on it. I mean yes, I’ve attended classes and learned a few things and tried hands on application a few times but….. I’ve not truly attended to it and given it the thought and effort to really open up to it fully. I’d really love to be able to do that.
Paul called me again yesterday. Trying to convince me that I need to do whatever it takes to survive and keep my house, even if that means working 16 hour days. He makes me feel anxious and guilty. Like I’m not doing enough. I know he means well but he looks at things in a very staunch way and I look at things much more fluidly.
This is me being me. Doing my life my own way, the best I can. The only way I really know how. Within the confines I am given I am trying to do things on my own terms, as much as possible. I stand ever grateful to be alive, to have my children to love, a whole big beautiful world to explore and countless, wonderful human beings to meet and learn from. But……
let’s see what life brings.
