You deserve the truth, you deserve to know these things. I feel I must be completely raw with you now.To those that are emerging into the Spiritual World. To those growing in their gifts.
It’s brutal at times. There will be times you may want to give it all up. Dig into your heart and find the inner voice within that will push through the breaking point.
As a child I found comfort in nature. I spoke with the “unseen”. The Rocks and the Stars looked over me. Speaking sweet words of comfort to a child afraid of the world. My voice rang out in song, words of an unspoken language. The flowers called to be mixed with the small pebbles that covered the earth.
There is a spot I still know well. A clearing among the trees where my head would lift to greet the voice of Spirit our Creator. The Wind still to this very day blows and speaks in among the trees as I look up in prayer to the North, The Ancient Ones.
I found peace in the tingle of the Crown, my head as I wrote and spoke with Spirit. Knowing and trusting without a doubt that the hand and Presence of something Greater than I could ever imagine stood and walked with me.
In many moments in life I wanted to give up but the inner voice, the voice of the Divine spoke loudly. “You have a purpose, you have work to do” I was not allowed to quit. My heart would not allow.
In this Healing community I have meant many people and for every single one good and bad I am thankful for. I was given a gift to look past the darkness to find the light in every being and situation. Often this gift keeps me in dangerous waters too long.
There have been times where my gifts have been questioned. There have been times when I have been attacked. The boundaries pushed over beyond repair.
To those who have pushed me, questioned and attacked. I say to you today.
“I owe you nothing, not a damn thing. You do not deserve to know my heart nor my truth.”
I walk this path to be a servant to our Dear Creator. I walk this path to make this world a better place. I walk this path because I know the beauty that exists and every Soul has that right. The right to know love and peace within.
I do not look for fame. I do not look for wealth. All that I do, all that I receive goes back to the Path I choose to walk. The path of service.
“All I do is in the name of love, in name of Great Spirit”
When I close my eyes and sit with my clients, my students, my friends and loved ones. The stories I see. The pictures Spirit paints are the most heavenly visions. Visions of beauty, heart and tears. I can not give you my eyes to see but I can give you my pure honest truth and love.
I will do whatever I can to help you find the beauty, to feel the beauty within your heart.
I say this to you because there will be times you will be questioned, you will be attacked, pushed to your breaking point. Nobody can take your gifts from you and nobody knows your truth or heart.
Dig deep down into your being, find your breath, find your strength and your heart. Listen for that voice, the voice that told you how important you are.
The voice of our Creator that found you and chose you. Remember the moment Spirit moved through your being and spoke through no words and touched your heart..
I am convinced that the jealous, the angry, the bitter and the egotistical are the first to race to the top of mountains. A confident person enjoys the journey, the people they meet along the way and sees life not as a competition. They reach the summit last because they know God isn’t at the top waiting for them. He is down below helping his followers to understand that the view is glorious wherever you stand.
