Premonitions/Intuition … Whispers of Spirit

I was 14 years old when I had my first experience with premonitions or huge intuitive insight.  I remember the exact moment it happened.  I was playing on a hill by the lakeside with my little sister, Anna.  I remember the bump in the hill, the dress and sweater she was wearing and her laughter.  She was 20 months old, and after 4 brothers … it was such joy to have a little sister!  In a flash there was a knowing … she was going to drown … and the flash was gone.  Her smiling face and twinkling eyes at that moment, are embedded in my heart forever.  It scared me.  I held her close.  It was not going to happen – I was going to make sure she would always be safe.  We were mindful of living on the lake and would give a shout out to Mom – “Heading down to the lake!”  “Heading to the dock!”  “Tossing a line out – gonna catch some sunnies!”  “Going to jump in and cool off!”  It was part of lake life, keeping in touch with heading down to the lake.

Anna did drown.  Less than a month later.  No matter how attentive I was, how I watched her like a hawk … it didn’t matter, she was gone.  The pain felt, was devastating.  Even writing this … all the emotions, the smells, the air, the sounds of wailing, come back in an instant.  I felt responsible.  No matter the compassion and understanding my folks gave me, trying to explain it was an accident, nobody’s fault – no blame.  I loved my folks for that, although it took a long time for me to see it their way.

What I came to realize … is there is a bigger plan.  Anna’s plan was 20 months.  Pure joy and love given to all of us.  Then, because of Anna dying,  our sister, Kyung, came into our lives.  We adopted her from Korea at nearly one year of age, with the last of the siblings, little brother Jake, born a month later.  Here I share a bit about the amazing woman she is!

What I believe about premonitions and intuition … For me, they are a way for Spirit/God to give me a ‘heads-up’.  I think subconsciously, having this premonition or intuitive insight, helped me to survive.  It has also let me know, there are only certain things in life we have control over.  I did not have control over Anna dying.  I only have control over how I choose to see this event – her life – in my life.  I choose to see her as a gift.  And her gift to us … Kyung!

I am open to the ‘heads-up’, quiet knowing Spirit/God is willing to share with me.  Sometimes, it is fun … I’ll share more next time!

As an Energy Worker, the 6th Chakra is your Intuition, the center of your forehead sometimes referred to as your 3rd Eye, your 6th Sense.  Meditation, prayer, listening is a way to hear the “Whispers of Spirit/God”, guiding  and supporting you in love …

What have been some premonitions or intuitive knowings you have experienced?

Wishing you gentle ‘Whispers of Spirit’.

Here’s the Thing … Collage Wisdom #2

20181104_070635_HDR

Welcome to this Mini-Series on the

Unfolding Collage Wisdom of Life & Changes 

You don’t always need a plan … That’s easier said than done!  How about you?  Maybe it was the way I was raised, because, there was always a plan.  Life wasn’t in order if there wasn’t a plan.  Then, there was a back-up plan for just in case, right?  Wrapping my brain around not always having a plan has been a decades-long exercise in … breathing and allowing.  If it was exercise in the physical sense, I’d be buffed and toned beyond belief !  ‘Don’t/Always’, are key here … because sometimes plans are necessary = Life. Reality.  I’m encouraging the realization in not having a plan, is being open to possibilities that perhaps haven’t been thought of or imagined yet.

Sometimes you just need to breathe … I’ve noticed, breathing is a theme in my collage.  It’s been a word I’ve used over and over with clients.  Because, it’s so important.  Many would get gold stars for shallow breathing … it’s the deep breaths that make a difference.  That oxygen into our cells, is a bit of a miracle in itself.   I practice mindful breathing, it’s amazing how my body softens and worries melt when I consciously pay attention to my breath.  The long-term effects, for me … mellower in my response to negative events going on in life.  I’m focused on the present, this moment. Now.  So grateful.

A recent gift from a friend … Thanks, Karen!

Let go and see what happens …  Wheee ….  Yikes … BREATHE … This is where I acknowledge how grateful I am for the gift of faith.  Letting go of the plans.  Trusting and believing Spirit/God and I are ok.  There is a time, a connection, a place greater than I can even imagine, all coming into place.   Surrendering and accepting what is right now, is a relief and also a sense of excitement.  Allowing life to surprise me in most amazing ways.  And when I let go with ease and grace and nothing is happening … in whatever I deem is a reasonable time … then I’m ok with making a move to do something.  It’s usually in-line with the whisper/nudge/tap I talked about in Collage Wisdom #1.

You don’t always need a plan.  Sometimes you just need to breathe.  Let go and see what happens.

More to come!

Blessings and Love,

Namaste

Dancing to the beat of my heart …

Life doesn’t always play out like I think it will.  After a whirlwind romance, reality started its dance.  It’s hard when the rhythm and the beat aren’t synchronized.  No matter what my head and the heart wanted to say, my body was like an opposing magnet, saying “pay attention”.  The body has an uncanny sense of truth.  It doesn’t lie … “trust your gut” is what I tell clients … it just took me a while to practice what I preach.

The whirlwind romance is over.  I’ve learned alot about myself. I’ve had to think about what my life purpose is at this point in my life … and honor it.  Being true to myself, has opened a stream of music, that has me dancing and my feet tapping to the beat of my heart!  I love it!  Ideas are flowing, get-togethers are planned, energy is clear and bright as sunlight sparkles in the autumn air.

Someday, perhaps, I’ll have a partner to dance with …

For now, Life has me encircled with incredible people, dancing, clapping and holding each other up, celebrating the gift we are to each other.
