Swallowed by a Whale
I am so filled with gratefulness…for a warm house, electricity – lights and a refrigerator – running water and friends.
It has been a rough and deeply reflective last several months.
We all knew it was coming if you paid attention to any astrologer. A total of six planets – five of them all at once – were in retrograde over the course of this summer, meaning that for the last few months we have had more twists and turns than a rollercoaster ride.
As Forever Conscious wrote, "It has been an intense time of self-reflection, and a time where the Universe has really allowed all the muck to rise to the surface in order to be cleared. The August Solar Eclipse was the last point in this cycle. It represented the rebirth, the end of one chapter and the start of a new one."
Thank heavens, it is time for rebirth! And of course, it is the Universal 11 “Master” year that is helping us surrender to the greater vision and version of ourselves. I’ve been there with you these last months, caught in the spin cycle of the washing machine… or swallowed by the whale as in the mythic story of Jonah and the Whale, where Jonah was helped forward in his divine mission by a whale.
When I moved to Oregon, our home was previously rented for eight weeks from July to September. I thought it would be “fine,” and that it would give me a chance to travel to Alaska to explore and spend some time with my husband… and work. I could actually see myself in front of the computer in some cute little RV.
Sounded great in January, but as we all know sometimes the universe has other plans for us.
Long story short, I never made it to Alaska or the RV image….but I did spend time with my husband, kids, dogs and friends…. As well as weeks and weeks of sleeping on a cot, eating on picnic tables, in the sun and the heat and dirt and experiencing fully the mother earth. I came home so very, very grateful for the simple luxuries I’d forgotten to appreciate – running water to wash my hands, warmth out of the wind and electricity at the touch of a switch.
I also have had to work with the guilt over not connecting with you or creating the classes I had planned to – and am again humbled when I realize the depths this journey took me on. I now have so much more compassion for others and their struggles. I explored the gamut of emotions up and down of being human and in awe and gratitude … that I can be just like you ….. loving and wanting to be loved … and wanting to live with passion, be of service by sharing my gifts and make an impact in the world… “our” divine purpose with spirit.
I also realized how much I love doing client work and seeing the shifts. I so appreciate each of you who trust me to help guide your journey and apologize to anyone who may have slipped through the cracks while I was without cell phone or wi-fi service.
Now that I am settled in back home, and stepping back into a more normal rhythm and flow, I have opened up my session calendar through the end of the year. If you'd like to book a private session with me, visit my booking page to see available dates and then contact me via email.
I hope your whale was sweet and easy and spit you out right on the path with Spirit.
