Today I added a video by Tom Lescher, Astrologer extraordinaire to my Face Book page. Love his posts. Watch them every week now and it always seems like he’s talking directly to me, my life, what’s going on in my life. ITS ALL ABOUT ME!! Sorry, a bit of a narcissistic moment there. I am the Goddess and the Center of MY Universe and I’m fine and good with that. But, this is about you all, right!? (another blog I guess) Back on track, really, It’s amazing how he does it. He is no newspaper astrologer that’s for sure. I liked his quote this week and I felt a need to write a little something about it and how it applies to my life as a Reiki teacher and all of our lives as a humans on the healing highway of life.
“I am the bridge between the imagined and the real. When I follow through I truly heal.” Tom Lescher
What does that mean? It speaks to me because I do truly feel like a bridge for people from the “real” to what they think is the imagined life. However, to me it is the other way around. The spiritual world gets more and more real and less and less imagined the more time I spend there. (Have you seen “The Matrix?”) In fact it is just as real as the “real” world. The more time you spend doing Reiki, meditating, praying, dreaming and other activities that take you to your spiritual place, the more you realize that they are real and “reality,” not so much.
Also, the more time I spend in the spiritual world the more neutral I can be to the drama of the Earth plane and the high emotions that go on here. (had no idea I was headed in this direction) Some may feel this is not a good thing, a disconnect from reality. Whatever, they are entitled to their opinions. However, I see it as being able to view the Earth and it’s drama from a higher plane, like the eagle, flying above, looking down from a distance. I always LOVED that Bette Midler song, “From a Distance” for a reason! She’s gently advising us to look at life from a higher outlook and we are getting new information for it. Viewing issues from a higher place can give us new and different perspectives to those problems. It allows us to see even our own drama in a new light, a less emotional light, a less defensive light maybe.
Then, at that point, we can also see solutions. Actions. Things we can DO to change our situation on this planet. When we are so caught up in the emotions only of a situation we have a much harder time of doing this. I’m not saying emotions are bad. I’m all for emotions. They are a fabulous way to release stuff for sure. But, I’m also saying, there is a time and a place for moving past the emotional release and moving into “what can we do about this now” point.
That takes us to Tom’s second half of his quote “When I follow through I truly heal.” This is the grounded, earthy part of the quote, the action, the doing. The follow through of the plan that you conceived while you were looking at your situation from a higher place. Being the eagle. When we are not so embroiled in the turmoil and theatrics going on we are in a much better situation within ourselves to solve an issue rather than just stew in it or “catastrophize” it. Oh I used to be good at all of it, drama, drama, drama!! Ask anyone who knew me before I knew energy. I was a mountain out of a mole hill type of girl. It has taken time, but I have grown, worked, and changed quite a bit.
“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. the slogan “press on” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.” John Calvin Coolidge
One thing that helps me a lot, I’m a DOER. I may get into a pity party for a while, but never for long. I figure out what I can DO to make my situation better and I do it. No fear, no lazing around and waiting for things to get better, no blaming, ok, maybe some blaming, but I do something.
THIS is the time of action. The energy of 2012 is so ramped up, I can feel it daily. I can feel the action it is calling for. I hear the messages Divine is giving me. The energy is requiring us to take action, change, grow and learn more than ever. I keep finding myself taking on new projects, new groups, new websites, new blogs, new writings, etc.
Just knowing, having faith that Divine will be there to support me through it all, I do it all. So far so good. When you have faith you have a nice big safety net. Use it, depend on it. This is the year you are going to need it. Because DOING something new and different is the only way this year is going to work out for us all where we raise our vibrations to a point that the energy is not too difficult to handle. Doing something new and different is the only way, like Tom said, we will truly heal. Follow through! If you have recently started yoga, then DO it. If you are taking a Reiki class, then GO to the circles. If you have recently started with a new therapist, then do not skip your sessions. Whatever it is that is a good new habit to help you learn and grow, DO IT. No excuses. If you need something healthy and new to help you grow, then pick up the phone and call me. I’m here to help you keep moving forward. I’m here to help you on your healing highway. We’ll keep you at a speed limit you can handle but we’ll keep moving forward.
One of the hardest parts of being a healer is having this knowing that you can help people……………………. but only if they show up.
What happens if you don’t show up? Nothing. Nothing at all.
Love and Light to you all,
(I’m climbing off my soap box now. LOL)
