It was bound to happen …
… some criticism of my woo-work, that is. Had a session with someone yesterday and knew from the first question that it felt “off” somehow. When I shared what I got, my client pretty much told me “nope. Not it at all.” I knew from that point on that no matter what I said or did, it wouldn’t resonate. I hung up the phone and went upstairs and cried because I was already having a poo-filled day and that just was the icing on the cake. Even a chocolate milkshake from Dairy Queen didn’t make it better.
Today, I received an email from this person asking for a refund in a hyper polite but chilly manner wherein they elucidated all the ways I did not deliver what I said I would and further, how they were shocked at the quality of the session.
Yikes! That was definitely a first for me but something I know I will run into time and again as I do this work. It stung, yes. I won’t lie. Still, I have to remind myself that I did what I always do – open up, allow the information to flow and detach from it. I really do want to bring through guidance that people can put into place right away and most times, I think I succeed. Otherwise, I’d have no business putting myself out there as a practical intuitive, right?(heh) And yes, I gave the refund. I don’t know that I’ll make that a habit should this come up again but it felt like the right thing to do in this situation. Quibbling over $30 is so not my style, you know?
Lots of weirdness coming up lately: people disappearing (again!), letting go of some mentors because it’s time to move on my own, dredging up past life crap that needed to be cleared and a lot of inner sadness and loneliness. The pot is definitely being stirred. Lessons are indeed all around me.
I’d say “Bring ’em on” but I know the Universe can and will “bring ’em on” and I’ve been there, done that, crumpled under the weight of the request. For now, I’ll just keep moving (as my coach Jaelin reminds me) and trust it will all fall into place.
