October 2016 Specials

Today is the last day to sign up for September 2016 Specials, but since I know them already, I thought I’d go ahead and post the October Specials now. As always, I base each month’s offerings on what I’ve seen in the past month, combined with what I sense needing support in the upcoming days and weeks.

I’ve decided to offer another Timeline Tune-In and Tune-Up Special because so many people contacted me in a panic in September wondering how they had suddenly begun a rapid downward spiral. Clients were crying, judging themselves for their “horrible luck” or “unevolved failure,” inquiring if someone had cursed them, and told me they were about to give up on life, Law of Attraction and any hope for their future. Dire, indeed!

In every instance, these people had — amidst the current chaotic energies — somehow gotten jostled onto a negative timeline. Because of the intensity right now, trajectories can shift very, very fast, thus the confusion of how a blessed life suddenly seemed cursed. As I told one client, “Railing against the chaotic energies right now won’t get you anywhere but stuck. The energies will remain chaotic for quite some time. If you learn how to deal with these energies, then you can use them as opportunities.”

This particular client experienced an $11,000 turnaround in her urgent finances within 18 hours of our conversation. Learning to acknowledge competing timelines encourages you to stop wallowing in self pity, confusion and grief and instead to recognize openings to preferred realities. This key energy shift brings a present moment consciousness that allows you to surf the chaotic waves instead of getting knocked over by them.

Having had so many similar conversations just this week, I realize that it’s “time” to bring out the Timeline Tune-In and Tune-Up Special again. I’ve also brought back the 3 hours/$333 multiple session discount, because I feel called to offer extra support and strategy for people in process of creating and fostering a life they truly love. Without further delay, here are the details:

OCTOBER 2016 SPECIALS

Timeline Tune-In and Tune-Up

This type of reading seems so important and helpful right now with so many people experiencing breaks from “normal” reality.

This hour session helps you to recognize your likely trajectory based on current energy patterns, intentions, and habits … and then, I search for the closest parallel reality versions of “you” with very slight differences that lead to more preferred (and more varied/greater opportunities for) positive outcomes. The scan and download are actually easier for me to do than to explain here, but if you’ve ever seen the movie “Sliding Doors” with its alternate reality story lines that intersect at certain points throughout the film, I’ll be scanning you for the stickiest intersection points.

I have found that these crossover points – i.e., parallel Universe bleed-throughs – can act like portals into alternate realities, preferred or not. That’s why you want to approach them consciously and respectfully, so that you recognize the power of the moment and choose wisely. The initial shift can look subtle, because if there weren’t enough similarities between the timelines/alternate realities, then the bleed-through moments wouldn’t happen so easily; however, in retrospect, such moments or decisions often seem “Fated.”

This reading gives you a heads up regarding the types of feelings, thoughts and experiences to watch for if you’re looking to sidestep onto a more positive timeline without needing to slog through linear time to get your desired life. In some cases, the preferred outcome even requires a sidestep, because the laws of cause and effect already set in motion on the current timeline are barreling you toward their “inevitable” end result. Fortunately, linear time’s not all it’s cracked up to be! These “timeline hops,” “portal points,” “reality jumps” – whatever you want to call them – are not only possible but powerful, and with awareness and practice, you can learn to surf such opportunities, charting your own course from current to next closest to preferred realities.

$133/hour if prepaid on or before 10/31/2016. Please contact me to sign up.

$333 Intuitive Coaching Three-Pack

With regular intuitive or life coaching sessions running $175/hour, this special offers major savings at $333/three hours. I’ve found that even people who normally process things on their own feel challenged by the increased intensity and “sorting” of the Universe these days. As we continue with Earth changes, internal and galactic shifts, I feel called to offer a short burst of support to those in need. These sessions can be used close together or saved for a future need. You can use them in hour or half-hour segments. The entire package can be gifted to someone else, but (for simplicity of paperwork) these three-packs cannot be divided and shared among multiple individuals. Offer valid if prepaid on or before October 31, 2016. To schedule your first session or purchase the package, please contact me here.

Possible Reiki 2 Class this Fall

Several people have recently inquired about the next Reiki Level 2 Certification Class. I had not planned to offer this training until next Spring; however, if a few more people express interest, I will reconsider the timing. Details below:

Reiki Level 2 Certification Class in Goshen, IN

This interactive class includes:

• Reiki Level 2 Attunement.

Please contact me to discuss dates in October or November 2016.

Tania Marie and Me: Equinox Visit and Cosmic Adventures with Our D’s ~ Part 2

Continuing on from where we left off in Part 1, Tania Marie, our Dave/David’s and I found ourselves at Cave of the Mounds — a stunning, prehistoric, subterranean world, carefully preserved since its discovery in 1939. You can see just a small selection of David’s photos from our guided tour below:

Someone kindly managed to snap a photo of the four of us, quite the feat with everything either pitch black or brilliantly highlighted:

Above ground we found butterfly and herb gardens, the top of a huge sinkhole we saw from below, and various trails “through time.” David caught Tania and me hamming it up as we “stopped to smell the roses.”

After Cave of the Mounds, we faeries couldn’t resist going to nearby Mount Horeb, “the troll capital of the world!” Here we are on Trollcam, showing off Tania’s matching key tattoo:

Since he missed our prehistoric peeps photo, we asked David to rest with us awhile on this kindly troll’s bench:

Afterwards, we did some shopping, and then look who we saw on our way back home:

img_5585

We returned to their “Magick Bus” RV, where the guys took a Wisconsin brew break with New Glarus Indigenous IPA, while Tania and I enjoyed Live soda flavored kombuchas. Who knew cola and root beer could be so healthy?! Vegan pizza and salads followed at Roman Candle Pizzeria.

With our time together winding to a close, we realized we had not gotten any photos of baby Cosmo with “Auntie Laura,” so we all gathered again at the Magick Bus the next morning. Tania made smoothies from the greens I’d harvested from our garden, and we spent quality time with the world’s snuggliest rabbit. You could call this photo T.L.C.:

img_5558

Our 11 a.m. checkout time loomed near, so we said our goodbye’s and headed our separate ways — Tania and Dave West to Iowa, and David and me to meet our Madison friends for lunch before heading East to Goshen. We’ve already got some ideas in the works for the next trip, but with the four of us very much in flux and synchronicity so obviously at play in our lives, time and sync winks will tell where and when we meet again. I was telling David on the way home just how grateful and lucky I feel to have such a loving romantic partnership with him and such a deep, beautiful friendship with Tania … and now we both know and love Tania’s Dave, as well. So much laughter and love:

Tania Marie and Me: Equinox Visit and Cosmic Adventures with Our D’s ~ Part 1

Best friend and faery twin Tania Marie and I are never apart in spirit. We keep in nearly constant touch via anything from texts to telepathy, and even if we have longer times without contact, we find our lives have either synchronously paralleled or gone into exactly opposite complementary experiences. Our own mothers have mixed us up in photographs, and our lives really do seem like those stories of twins separated at birth.

We both have our North Nodes (Destiny) in Capricorn, and we both have David’s/Dave’s with Cancer North Nodes. We’re roughly the same size and height, and our haircuts seem to parallel each other. Tania’s a two-fish Pisces, and I’m a twin Gemini. Tania has a special needs bunny, and I have a special needs yard. When Tania and her Dave downsized last year to start full time RV living, I simultaneously upsized by renting the house next door as an office/classroom/guesthouse filled with my David’s parents’ furniture they needed to move out of their old house. Despite the miles between Tania and me, we often giggle to discover we’ve made the exact same thing for dinner, or that one of us is out shopping for the very ingredient the other one just chopped.

garden-fun-3

All these long distance connections and synchronicities go into life-changing hyperdrive whenever life permits a fun and magickal in-person adventure. We went to the San Francisco Veg Fest Together in 2008 carrying bunny Nestor’s ashes and then learned about a bunny rescue that eventually led to Tania adopting Joy; I picked up her Joy with Tania and held her on their first road trip together; we’ve had many Cafe Gratitude binge fests where the waitresses actually looked under the table to see where we’d hidden all our food; we braved a spooky and synchronous Halloween 2008 in Bodega Bay with our friend Karen; have enjoyed multiple vegan Thanksgiving’s together; took a crazy, wild, and life-altering visit to Mendocino in 2009; did a silly, but potent faery reclamation of Chicago in 2010; and had a joyful reunion and birthday celebration in Goshen in 2015 when Tania first got to meet my David.

We’ve been planning this year’s gathering with “both our D’s” pretty much since Tania and her D took off in the RV. As timing and plans coalesced, we originally thought we’d meet over Samhain/Halloween as they drove East through Canada and then down through Michigan to Goshen, IN then wintering South and continuing their East Coast travels next Spring and Summer. These plans morphed all over the place until we finally decided to meet in Viroqua, WI on Autumn Equinox.

Yes, Wisconsin, the land of giant mice, cheese and brats:

land-of-cheese-and-brats

Readers of this blog might remember The Sunflower Saga, Synchronicity and the NAPC, the first time tried to go to Viroqua amidst massive redirection, dreams and another head injury. I tried a second time for David’s birthday this year, but life strongly rearranged itself to send us to Turkey Run State Park instead. Apparently, I have a “thing” with Viroqua — a strong pull accompanied by a major block. When making plans with Tania, I mentioned that I was still a little nervous about that location, even though I’ve always wanted to go there, but we reasoned that since I’d be there with both Tania and my David, I’d be fine.

And so we made our respective reservations. While I harvested and prepped food for an Equinox Feast, we all gathered and prepared various gifts for one another. The afternoon before our trip, just as Tania and Dave neared Viroqua, I felt a sudden “flood” of energy. It was so strong that it knocked me back onto the couch, even when I tried to get up. Whenever I thought of our trip, I felt this powerful force field of energy so strong that it felt like a rush of water pulling me deeper and deeper. I texted Tania to say, “Wow, really potent energy for our trip in Viroqua. Almost knocked me out.” Then I checked the weather there, only to find a “Flood Warning.”

Hmmm …. I texted her not to set up camp too close to the Kickapoo River, as it might overflow, but we continued with our plans. We figured the potent energy came more from the intentional ceremony we had planned for that evening, the first time all four of us would be together, with Tania’s bunny Cosmo anchoring the center of our Circle. I had copied, modified and highlighted an OBOD Alban Elfed ritual, so that the five of us could personify the four directions and “the cosmos.”

All proceeded according to plan until …

…what I’ve come to consider “my Viroqua hex” reared its powerful head again.

Early Equinox morning, I received hurried texts from Tania that she and Dave were being evacuated from their camp site. A flurry of texts and phone calls followed as I tried to see if they could stay in the parking lot by our hotel, but people on their end urged them to get out of town while they still could. “Mudslides and flash floods would make it impossible” for David and me to reach Viroqua, and the Sheriff advised Tania and Dave to go to Madison. I knew she had little signal, so I located a KOA in De Forest, WI, just north of Madison, and it turned out they had trailers for rent, as well as a site for T and D.

Originally, we would have been staying about twenty minutes apart since we could not find any accommodations capable of housing both parties. Our trailer option meant a very different sort of packing, but it also meant we would be about twenty yards instead of twenty minutes away from each other! It meant we could hang out with Tania and Dave in their “home on the road,” while David and I shared our homecoming to the place he and I first lived together. A place with loads of vegan food options. A place we both love and had planned to drive through on our way home anyway to have lunch with dear friends there. A place which increasingly seems to be some kind of Wheel of the Year vortex portal for us, as demonstrated further by our potent Winter Solstice 2015 in Madison.

In any case, our plans rapidly morphed, and the synchronicities suddenly catapulted into crazy high gear. All of us dodged potential injury or death that day, between the rising floods on T and D’s end, and a rogue white van suddenly crossing and stopping right in front of us on the highway. As the day continued, Tania and I began to feel forces strongly opposing our visit, while even stronger forces protected and redirected us to safe communion. We eventually arrived, quickly got settled and then gathered in their “Magick Bus,” where we did introductions, hugged, changed into fun “Equinox costumes,” held our little ceremony and then feasted on the garden fresh white scallop squash “faux”lenta, pesto, tomatoes, leafy greens, raspberries and Sun Oven Lammas brownies, I had brought. It was so yummy and love filled that we forgot to take any photos that night.

Tania and I noticed that we “floated for hours” in some kind of altered state as our guys slept. The next day, Tania received word from our friend Dawn that she also felt floaty and interdimensional that night. We all felt we crossed onto a different timeline or alternate reality, as things eerily fell into perfect alignment, despite all the sudden twists and turns. I received texts from others confirming similar sense of shifts the night of Autumn Equinox, so we’re curious if anyone has other info to share in the comments below.

On Friday, we toured some of our favorite spots in Madison, including Willy Street Co-Op, of special interest to my D and me for green juice, and to T’s D for … vegan scones and donuts! Oh, yes, Dave is not only a vegan author, speaker, and animal rights advocate but also quite the junk food vegan connoisseur! He kept us well supplied with goodies throughout our trip, a bit of a shock to my “just harvested from the garden” norm, but also a fun and welcome treat! We enjoyed chocolate bark, donuts, scones and lots of wonderful teas from his extensive collection. We took them to our much missed restaurants Himal Chuli and The Green Owl Cafe, as well as to Roman Candle Pizzeria for vegan pizza. Here we are below on our first full, crazy windy day there, overlooking Lake Mendota, on the UW Madison campus. The wind was so strong it started blowing off my jacket and shirt, but we did manage to snap this selfie before wandering into more sheltered woods:

the-gang

The whole trip continued to evolve moment-by-moment, and it seemed impossible to plan anything. Between road detours, missing emails, very specific weather guidelines, and more, we had no choice but to go with the flow. Saturday brought us to Cave of the Mounds, where we picnicked and then went on an amazing underground tour. I experienced such powerful and unshakeable déjà vu when we got there that I kept trying to explain it away by my early childhood visits to Pennsylvania’s Crystal Cave. The avalanche of synchronicities and slow motion time experience of our pre-tour time there convinced Tania and me that some other important time nexus or circular time event had arranged for us to be there right then. My David kept mentioning “the importance of getting you ladies deep inside the Earth so you can do whatever you need to do there.”

It truly was magical inside that ancient cave, but I’ll continue our adventure in Part 2.

As promised, here’s the photo version of ‘Twas the Weekend ‘Fore Autumn:

The Weekend ‘Fore Autumn

 

‘Twas the weekend ‘fore Autumn and all through the yard,

All the plants were a’thriving, including the chard.

The bees dined on asters; the cushaw had grown.

The mums nearly bursting, the yard freshly mown.

 

Thai basil hummed purple; eggplants danced in the breeze–

The garden so fragrant, it drew many a sneeze!

 

Sweet potato vines covered the sides of the trough,

And on sedum and zinnias, butterflies sipped on and off.

 

For the first time in years, the holly had berries.

Boltonia blossoms delighted the faeries.

 

As Fall Equinox split the light and the dark,

Those flowers all giggled at anything stark.

Today I Begin Anew

One of my most powerfully insightful and healing moments occurred in 2002 right after I had totally lost a personal injury lawsuit for my brain injury — a lawsuit I had not begun, but which at the time seemed like my only way to support myself as I remained almost totally unable to work enough to support myself. As a consolation, a friend flew me from Seattle down to Northern California and we stopped at a bookstore in Santa Cruz.

I could not read more than five minutes without migraines at that time, but I opened a book to a page suggesting I imagine myself as having complete amnesia. In that moment, I forgot about the law suit, the injury, the witch hunts from workers comp, discouraging comments from doctors, family and friends. I forgot about lifelong programming and manipulation, and I allowed myself to forget about all my former plans for life. In that moment, I was free.

As we walked down the street, people kept staring at me and smiling, telling me I was glowing. I could read the menu at the restaurant with no problems, and I was able to eat foods to which I normally had allergic reactions. I did not manage to maintain the total amnesia and spontaneous healing, but I never forgot the feeling. Eventually, I restructured my life so that it matches much closer to the amnesiac me. There is great power when we “begin anew.” Thank you, Jamie, for this message, which is much needed by many right now — individually and collectively.

Sophia's Children

Over the last week or so, I found that message – Begin Anew – arising within and around me more than once.

First it simply arose in my awareness. Begin anew.

Then, as I was walking, I noticed a bumper sticker on a car that passed: Begin Anew.

Amazing, right?

Having a more focused Muse Walk on Friday (“Walking the Muse” as I call it), once again it arose clearly in my awareness.

Today I begin anew.

Yesterday morning, as I sat in my morning practice that bridges Dreamtime with waking into the new day, I was moved to pull a book from my bookshelf and opened it to the first chapter.

Can you guess what the title of the first chapter was?

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse

By Ruby

September 2016

The “Full Moon – Lunar Eclipse” in Pisces is on Friday, September 16th at 3pm EST and 2pm CST. This Eclipse is going to be quite intense due to its involvement with Mercury in Retrograde in Virgo, and Mars in Sagittarius, and then “wounded healer” Chiron, which is also Retrograde in Pisces. Whew that’s a mouthful huh, well actually in Astrology it really is, so let me break this down for you and make sense of it all.

Eclipses cause crisis and bring strong endings and new beginnings. This Eclipse is in Pisces which can help us to release something, and Full Moon’s are all about letting go! Pisces is also the sign of goodbyes, releasing or letting go. So you know what you need to do during this Eclipse! This Eclipse Season started back on July 29th, and a lot has…

SEPTEMBER 2016 SPECIALS

I’ve been having so many 44, 444 and 144 synchronicities that it’s time to resurrect the $44 Tarot Special. I’m also feeling led to offer Intuitive Life Path Assessments for $144 this month. Please see details below:

$44 Tarot Readings

Half hour tarot readings at 20% off the usual rate. Tarot readings offer an energetic check-in, the chance to ask questions about pending decisions or intentions, and represent a fun, yet powerful way to gain new perspective on relationships and challenges.

Tarot readings are particularly good for people who don’t know what kinds of questions to ask me; they just want some kind of guidance because they feel unsure of what’s coming or what to focus upon. Tarot also seems to benefit those people who have exceptionally good things coming their way, yet wonder if I might be “padding the reading” or “just saying what they want…

Dramatic Visual of Why Frequency Matters

The topics of “resonance,” “harmony” and “frequency” have become especially common in phone sessions as people continue to get more sensitive to the energies in and around themselves. Many people feel unexpected and tremendous relief when they remove themselves from disharmonious influences that they considered either minor irritations or “must have’s” in their lives. In fact, they feel so much better that the sense of relief practically shouts itself from the rooftops.

They then feel a combination of guilt and elation that they “feel so much better with this person or situation out of my life. How is this possible? I can’t deny it, but they’re my ____[parent/sibling/spouse/job/best friend/random person I run into]. I feel bad for not hanging out with them, but I just can’t do it anymore. My body won’t let me. Should I feel bad? What’s going on?!”

What’s going on is what I call “frequency sorting,” and although it can seem surprising, it’s not a bad thing. It doesn’t mean one person is “evil” and the other “good.” It doesn’t mean one person is “right” and the other “totally wrong.” It just means, these people or situations are “not a match” or “not a match right now.”

But why is it such a big deal, and why does the body care so much?

The easiest illustration I can show is this video of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge Collapse, which shows how disharmonious frequency affects physical structures. There’s nothing inherently wrong with the wind that causes the bridge to sway; however, the continued frequency of that wind eventually causes the bridge to buckle and fall apart. The wind and the bridge are not compatible, and if the bridge had been able to remove itself from the wind or to create a buffer from that wind, then it would not now be “one of the world’s largest manmade reefs.”

Can this kind of resonance that destroys serve a larger purpose? Sure. In this case, “Gallopin’ Gertie” inspired the complete redesign of bridges across the world, because no one wanted a repeat of this level of destruction. But if your body is the bridge, or you’re on the bridge, and someone’s or something’s presence starts rocking your heart rate, hormones and any semblance of inner peace, self preservation strongly advises getting out of the way of that frequency. In the beginning, not much damage occurs, but with sustained exposure, look what happens:

Be gentle with yourself. Perhaps the frequencies between you two just happen to create highly destructive resonance waves right now. It might not mean forever. Frequencies do change, but if you notice, the wind sustains no damage. Only the bridge. The bridge is rockin’ and rollin’ and going all topsy turvy. If the wind said to the bridge, “I don’t know what you’re talking about! I’m just blowing. It’s your problem.” Well, yeah, in this case, it is the bridge’s problem, but that doesn’t mean there’s not a very real problem. The bridge collapsed with sustained exposure.

Sometimes, you’re not the bridge, but you find yourself in a highly non-resonant situation of someone else’s drama. You’re like the person in the car on the swaying bridge. A bridge can’t easily walk away from a situation, but the person in the car on the topsy turvy Tacoma Narrows Bridge needed to make some fast, courageous decisions if they didn’t want to go down in Puget Sound.

In the bigger picture, good things can come of these situations, even if the bridge  collapses, but do you want to risk collapse? The design of future bridges created safer suspension and buffers to prevent this sort of thing from happening as easily again. Perhaps your body’s just warning you to remove yourself from destructive resonance until you can change your own frequency so that you become less vulnerable to that specific frequency of wind. Perhaps, your body’s increasing malfunctions order you to walk away from abuse or negativity or falsehood. Maybe you’ve developed a hypersensitivity to narcissists or sociopaths, in which case, you can save yourself a lot of trouble by proceeding with high alert caution  or — more often than not — getting out of the car and carefully running for your life.

A lot of people have recently developed extreme sensitivity to denial. Generally, coming out of denial leads to awakening, but it also destroys illusions and weak foundations in the process. Depending on how fully invested people feel in the denial, premature awakening could trigger a nervous breakdown or equivalent “collapse.” Once someone has awakened from denial, though, continuing to hang around people who live and breathe the lie, who embody the lie takes a huge toll on the body. Mismatched, disharmonious frequency sometimes feels horrible to both parties, but sometimes only one person needs to get away. No judgment here, really: think of the wind and the bridge. The wind didn’t feel a problem, but the bridge sure did! Again, the need to remove yourself from disharmonious frequency does not necessarily indicate who is right or wrong. It just “is” a need to remove yourself in order to avoid collapse.

Yes, sometimes positive new things come from a needed collapse, but often, we can embrace equally or even more positive new things by sidestepping collapse. You decide. In these chaotic times, learning to trust your body can help determine who or what to include in your life experience. What frequencies do you wish to engage? What frequencies feel supportive and strong? Which ones dis-integrate you? If you’re on what I call an Integration Lifetime, then you have a soul imperative to integrate. Choose wisely.

All the layers of your being matter. If you need to “see it to believe it,” then you might get to witness your own, personal “Gallopin’ Gertie.” If you can trust your feelings and act on those, then life can bring what David calls “Ease ‘n’ Please” instead of “Trauma Drama.” Bridges can get you from point a to point b, but the journey becomes far more interesting and difficult if the bridge collapses. You might still reach point b — perhaps your soul will insist upon it! But if you’re too afraid to address issues of frequency, resonance and harmony now, then it becomes ironic to call this “the safe choice.”

Listen to your body; cultivate your soul. If you need a stabilizing force in the wind so that you have the presence of mind and heart to decide, just ask. Just like the person in the car caught on the buckling bridge, you are not as alone as you feel right now. Help can arrive, but if you find yourself on a swaying, buckling bridge when help arrives, you might want to get out of the car!

Wishing you discernment, courage and strength in these chaotic times… find the right frequency for you, and all this chaos begins to feel empowering and good! But frequency is key.

Quick Medical Intuitive Insights to Common Issues

This is a repost of a 2009 article, but these issues continue to resurface. I receive so many of the same questions from people that I thought I might share a few general tidbits here. These aren’t meant to replace medical advice, of course; they’re meant to give you pause and reflection on what your body might want to tell you through your symptoms. If these don’t resonate with you, there may be a deeper soul issue wanting to come through. Please feel free to contact me for a personalized reading. ‘Til then, enjoy!

Hip Pain/Hip Issues: People rarely call me for this issue on its own, but I notice it a lot when I do general energy reads in coaching sessions. People are always amazed when I ask out of the blue how their hips feel!

Hips represent where our steps begin and where our legs connect to the rest of our body. As such, they often blow out, get stiff, dislocate, ache, or even break when people begin to contemplate a major life change. I find it interesting to note if it’s the hip of the dominant leg (the one you first step with) or the non-dominant one, as this can tell you where you are in the process of your decision to change.

Skin Flare-Ups These often have to do with visibility issues and the “face” you show the world. I’ve written more extensively on skin issues here.

Lack of Motivation: i.e. wanting to change, but not feeling focused enough or engaged enough to follow through with a course of action. This often occurs in conjunction with Candida Overgrowth. Candida vibrates to the type of victim that feels oppressed or overburdened by all the worlds concerns, be they family, job, or other “one-way” relationship. (For an in-depth discussion of Candida, you might enjoy this interview between colleague Elicia Miller and myself.)

I also find that motivation struggles arise when the supposed goal really does not reflect the deepest longings of the soul. In this case, the “prize” is simply not enticing enough to move through the required work. In some cases, the so-called prize might even represent a kind of prison. I recommend writing an uncensored list of 101 Wishes to see what comes up. Any patterns? Any surprises? Life coaching and/or Intuitive Life Path Assessments can also help to clarify goals and deeper longings.

A fair number of people have a mortal fear of achieving their soul’s dream. Yes, I said “mortal fear” as in fear of death. On some level, they associate this dream with the stoppage of time into permanent bliss. Doesn’t that sound a bit like, um, heaven? Death?

Souls are like little children who believe everything we say and take it literally. Sometimes we need to unpack the symbols, words and metaphors we use to describe or envision our “goals.” Sometimes we need to shake them out and iron them flat, remove any wrinkles lest our souls see boogie men or monsters in ordinary wishes.

Time does not freeze-frame when the soul steps into its life purpose. Yes, sometimes souls choose to leave the body when they’ve finished their goals or when it’s clear they will never finish them in this incarnation; however, that does not mean that yours will. Finding your life path is a road to liberation IN the body. It’s a means of experiencing “the kingdom of heaven within you.” By allowing your soul to receive what it came here to receive, you help to reconnect the spirit and earthly realms. You can give yourself permission to do this in body. If you had wanted to bliss out in the heavenly realms without experiencing any of the 3D effects, then you wouldn’t have bothered to take on a body. You have one now; have fun in it!

Thyroid/Neck/Throat Problems: Most people recognize that the throat chakra represents how they share their voice in the world. Many people do not know that the ears and the throat are part of the same chakra: how you hear and how you’re heard. If you have examined and re-examined the ways you speak your truth yet still have imbalances in the throat/neck/thyroid region, you might want to look at how you hear. Do you talk over others? Interrupt them? Do you shut out clairaudient awareness, explaining it away as “just a silly thought”? Since nature craves balance, a lack of listening will sometimes present itself in the same way as too much silence. In macrobiotics they say that everything eventually becomes its opposite: something overly yin eventually becomes yang; something overly yang eventually becomes yin. If you can’t figure out what’s happening with your throat, check your ears.
