Dorothy has been a big inspiration for my spiritual growth and journey. She is the one who introduced me to the likes of Louise Hay (You Can Heal Your Life), Deepak Chopra and Wayne Dyer. It is funny because in a recent conversation a friend she told me that she felt like she was channeling Wayne Dyer. I laughed because I feel like we all do (at least the people that I choose to surround myself with seem to have a Wayne Dyer consciousness leading their way).
Wayne was Love and Light, Curiosity and presence...he was an earth angel, and I believe that he was an ascended master, and leader of a heart revolution, of our time.
Back in the summer of 2015 I had signed up to go to a Hay House Writer's Workshop on the beautiful island of Maui...Wayne Dyer's home. Wayne was one of the facilitators of that workshop. While my husband and I were eating a snack waiting to board the plane, I got a call requesting that I come home. The friend who was watching our elder pug thought she was too ill to care for her. I respectfully, and without feelings of resentment (honestly), collected our already checked bags, and we returned home. Later that summer Wayne died. I was extremely sad and did not get the cruelty of the irony. It had been a dream of mine to get to see him. I just felt like it was something I was supposed to experience.
A friend contacted me shortly afterwards and said she was going to a Hay House Writer's Workshop in New York the following October, and wondered if I wanted to join her. We were moving that weekend but my husband really wanted me to go and decided to do the move without me. So I set off to NY all by myself (which was honestly the first real trip I have done by myself. I had to figure out how to get from the airport to the AirBnB apartment in Manhattan). I overcome a lot of fears during that trip, and through it, I have experienced so many synchronicities - synchroncities that lead me to meet a couple dear friends who are very important in my life today. Because of THAT trip, and the subsequent growth that has resulted from the people I serendipitously met there, I feel like Wayne Dyer was indeed looking out for me.
So, where am I going with all of this? During the last week, as a result of my coaching groups with Nancy Levin who was one of those people that I met in New York (you gotta give yourself the gift of doing coaching with her. She is like the fairy god-mother...magic follows her wherever she goes), combined with my passion for spiritual studies, has lead me to the realization of what it takes to be able to do a card reading. I always thought one had to possess special talents and powers to be able to do a reading. I loved oracle cards - the art and stories - and dreamt that one day I would, as if by magic, be able to read them myself. But I had an epiphany. WE CAN ALL read cards if we are able to become present to our heart and intuition in the moment - if we are able to see that our pasts are merely illusions of our social imprinting, we can begin to hear the Truths available to us in each moment through our hearts. and intuition
The secret to reading cards is to read ourselves! I am not sure if this makes any sense to you, but know this - YOU have this ability. too - we all do. If you can get to know and honour the voice of your intuition - your True Self, and begin to live a life full of self- love, joy, beauty, and peace, as a result - you will no longer have to feel alone and/or insecure. BUT...you gotta get to know yourself ,and to be able to honour and respect your truth and feelings first.
Anyway...here is the reading I did this week. I asked the question, "Am on the right track for my dreams?"
