It Comes In Many Forms

Intuition comes from the outside. Trusting it comes from within.

I love intuition. I especially love the way it speaks to me. Messages come from the radio, overheard conversations, and even from bus drivers.

In 2012 I was accepted into a mentorship for healers in Seattle, Wa. I had been living in Santa Fe, Nm for 12 years at the time. It was my home and I thought I would live there forever. But, when I received the invitation letter for the mentorship, something in me excitedly said, “Maybe I’ll move to Seattle?!” All the while, my mind told me all the reasons I didn’t want to move there.

The only way on and off the island is by ferry.

As I spent the next year making monthly trips to Seattle people would ask me if I was moving there. Lots of people, strangers in the airport, friends, my very intuitive cohorts. Every time I turned on the radio there would be a commercial that somehow referenced Seattle. It became humorous. One day driving around town I saw a truck that said, Seattle Fish Company of New Mexico. Really? My mind still said “No way Jose”.

Then on one of my weekends in Seattle I got another big message. As I was getting on the bus downtown with my suitcase in the evening, the bus driver says to me in a sweet southern accent, “You just getting home now? Welcome home!” I looked around me. Was this a joke. Who put this guy up this?

I’ve had amazing experiences that I could have never imagined.

Now I live surrounded by water and trees on a magical island in the Puget Sound. I love the mystery and magic of how my intuition led me here.

Looking back the answer seems clear. These were signs both large and small. Even so, my mind kept saying “Whatever, I’m staying put”. It can be hard to really hear and follow your intuition.

The intuition that comes through on a daily basis is often not as glaring as in my story. Intuition is not always obvious. It’s usually a quiet subtle voice.

We are all born with this skill. All it takes is a little weight lifting to build this muscle. Join me in my online class, for a little muscle building fun.

January 11th is just around the corner. Register now to enter the fun magical world of your intuition!

Vulnerability Hangover

I’m having a vulnerability hangover. It’s been lingering for a few weeks. I noticed it the day after posting one of my photo haiku blogs on Facebook. I didn’t just post the photo haiku. I had to say that I was going to continue writing haiku or some form of poetry. Here’s what I said:

Back in October I started writing haiku instead of doing sun salutations. Sounds weird but it’s true. A haiku a day- I wrote them daily for a month or two and now I write one or two a week. Kinda like the evolution of the sun salutation routine. I plan to continue writing haiku or some form of poetry. It’s been a fun and challenging way to express my feelings and observations. With encouragement from my sweetie, I started connecting the words to my photos and “blogging”. Check out my website when you click the blog link. My work has expanded from healing into the psychic and mediumship realm. All sessions can be done at a distance. If you are curious and have questions about the work please post questions on my face book business page, my blog, or website. I love talking about the work!

Egads, what did I say? I started questioning my declaration of continuing to write poetry with the implication of weekly posting. Why the heck did I feel the need to share that? Would I be able to write a haiku every week?-Never mind that it be interesting or meaningful or fun or gosh darn it, Good Enough. Would I continue to be inspired? Could I write something that I haven’t already written? How many times can I use the word expanding? Would my haiku writing evolve the way the sun salutations did? (I haven’t done one since the beginning of 2015!)

Help, what have I done. Do you ever have these feelings? I used to keep all of my ideas to myself so as not to set myself up for failure (If no one knows about all the things I didn’t do then I haven’t failed). I still think it’s a good idea to keep dreams to yourself while you are manifesting them. Once you start telling people your hearts desires the energy becomes dispersed. All of a sudden the dream is no longer yours. The hopes and fears of those you have shared with become interspersed with your own desires. Unless you’re a master, it becomes challenging to maintain the focus.

“Pretty shot. I feel a haiku post.”, he said.

My dream really is to just be in the creative flow, whatever the creation might be. So, last week while on the ferry I snapped a photo and sent it off to my sweetie. “Pretty shot. I feel a haiku post.” was his response. I felt my body relax a bit. Oh yeah, there is a haiku post here. If I don’t let my mind take over with all the doubt, I can step into the flow and see what’s there.
