I was looking forward to an unscheduled evening – lots of work to do on my website, getting out my March newsletter, catching up on emails – or perhaps just watching the new moon climb the sky.
I unloaded the car (there’s always something to carry up, isn’t there?), fed the birds and changed the birdbath water, tried to carry up a 50 pound deer salt block and decided that would wait for some assistance, brought up a rake, thinking about the pleasure of raking out the day lily and peppermint beds over the next few days since shoots are popping up, and was just considering supper when the phone rang.
It was an old client – who hadn’t called in nearly 20 years. His voice / attitude was different – his listening was different. After hearing his story, I invited him to come over, and offered to do a reading for free. On condition that, when he is able, he will pay it forward.
Forty five minutes later he was on my doorstep (I had tofu scrambler with my favorite salsa in the meantime). And I realized I had the helper I needed to get the deer block up the stairs and out onto the upper patio. Which he did before we started the reading.
Actually, we started with Reiki healing, since there was an unexplained pain in his side, and he had just recovered from pneumonia. After the pain was gone, he could relax more easily into really hearing the reading. And I believe he’ll hear even more when he listens to the recording after I email it to him.
Able for the first time to accept that life is step by step, that we don’t have to know this minute how a relationship will be in 6 months, that we can be grateful for the joy now, he asked good questions.
Big questions were about the shortfall between the income from his new job (and his second job of pizza delivery) and the actual bills to be paid each month. Old patterns of anxiety there, the hamster running wheel syndrome – none of which has ever improved income by so much as a penny. So we talked about strategies for changing the tape in his mind about there not being enough money – and the reading verified strongly that in about 5 months there will be enough money – not more than enough, but enough.
And it was far easier for him than it would have been years ago to just know the situation is definitely improving, without knowing the exact day and where specifically the money is coming from. We do have to allow the Universe room to make miracles, after all!
It was great to watch the exponential spiritual growth spurt he’s in really speed up during our work together. He was getting ideas he would have had to logically argue about in prior readings – so he has learned a lot about getting out of his own way.
And I re-learned that guys – just like women (who seem to be pretty far ahead of men these days) – can make shifts in their thinking, opening themselves to self-love and healing, and moving toward joy and gratitude. Which is what brings about real prosperity of mind, body and spirit.
Thank you, Spirit, for a blessed and unexpected evening!
