Busy day on Sunday past – I went to the annual Pathways Natural Healing Expo. My wonderful teacher and mentor, Rose Rosetree, asked me to work at her booth while she gave aura and face readings. I, along with three other women, greeted the passers-by, scheduled appointments, sold Rose’s books and answered questions. This expo is a pretty huge deal around these parts. Northern VA (my former hometown) is awash in woo-woo/alternative healing practitioners and this is the once yearly gathering of many of them. People come from all over to get intuitive and psychic readings, experience Reiki healing, learn about new modalities and just wander about. I managed to confine myself to one reading (spot on, not surprisingly), and one jewelery like item. Not too bad. Last year I spent a bit too much on stuff and regretted it later. Much more disciplined this go-round. I managed to navigate the noise and chaos well and even made a new friend (one of the other chicks (wo)manning the booth with me). A good day but an energetically tiring one. (And I wasn’t even doing readings! Rose did them from 11-7 with barely a break. She’s awesome.)
I was debating whether or not to actually go to see Cookie in Charlottesville VA this coming Sunday (I know, right? I’ve gone insane and/or am wicked lazy because I didn’t want to drive 3 hours to C’ville by myself) and planned to see if the chick I was sitting with could sell the ticket to one of her friends. Then I get a twitter from one of my buddies who has front row seats asking if I wanted to take the ticket since another chick dropped out. I was pretty sure that was the Universe offering me encouragement to go. So, I took it. (Because you don’t say no to the Universe, y’all!) Then today, I hear boyfriend has tonsilitis!! OH NOES! I shall have to send some major Reiki to his throat chakra and get him back in tip-top form stat! We’ll see how it goes. If it gets cancelled or rescheduled, that’s okay. I am just thankful that the Universe shows its love for me in such nice ways! heh
Actually, I have to say that the Uni always has my back and it shows me that pretty consistently. There are times when I can’t wrap my head around what’s going on and the message is always “Trust” and I do (after whining a bit, of course). Walking through whatever it is that scares me is always hard (as it is for almost everyone, I suspect). I usually cry my way through it, run away and then hide for a bit. But I come out, take a deep breath and move onward.
So, I declare that I won’t sit at the crossroads any longer. Keep moving and keep going are my watchwords. Those who haven’t quite caught up to me will get there eventually. They always do. This I trust.
Leaving you with a quote from a DC song called (appropriately) Declaration:
It’s my declaration
to anyone whose listening
You’re my inspiration
as i stand alone against the world
’cause you love
and you bleed
and you stole my soul
and set me free
It’s my declaration
So tell me you can hear these words tonight
