Look what I dropped into

Drop In…Expand Out? What in the HEC does that mean? My original intent was to talk about this Tarot spread reading a group I am in did that really struck me deep- and now I know why-it talks about what I talk about all the time that Drop in…Expand out stuff. Whoa! Super cool, interesting coincidence (do you believe coincidences and synchronicities are teachers? I do) So dropping IN. What I mean when I say this is that you drop your awareness down into your belly and really truly feel (feel in your body and soul) how you feel about something. The truth of what is being presented whether it is an inner thing or something outside of you. Is it your intuition? Possibly. Is it your soul? Possibly. Is it your higher self? Possibly. Or all of the above? I don’t really care what you call it. I call it your inner drop. And I want you to connect to it, to live your life from this place in your being. Feel whole, integrated and on track because you know the truth of what is true for you. And you are strong and powerful in that truth. And it is yours and yours only, baby! Check in with it. Drop down inside. Feel. Listen. Ask a question out loud of it. Wait and feel the response- the answer- the feeling and the truth that comes.     And it will come.    It may take practice.    Keep practicing.    Develop ways to hear the answer. (Writing, meditation and oracles are great tools) Okay, so that’s the dropping in (in a nut shell). SO now…what is this expanding OUT stuff? The expanding out stuff IS… what are you going to do with the information that you got from your inner drop? What are you [...]

What losing my cat taught me

Josephine is a shelter cat (I have 3 adopted fur babies).  She is an inside cat, so when she went missing a few weeks ago I was worried, scared and untethered.  I felt like part of my life was gone.  I was supposed to protect and care for her—that’s what I signed up for when I adopted her.  I pictured her out there in the pouring spring rain-hiding, wet, hungry and lonely. This was on top of some other major WTFs in my world.Well, not too major, but things usually go pretty smoothly for me, especially lately.  I am the type of person that likes it when things work and go smoothly without a bunch of snafus, stress and wasted energy.  SO when I got a call from a post office in Pennsylvania that my passport (getting it renewed) was loose there…I was thinking, “OH, s@#*! What is going on???”Besides Josephine and the passport issues, many things (cups, buttons, and plates) were breaking (always an attention getter), a flat tire (there’s a communication story here too-You need to tell the guys the correct tire to fix or you have to go back the next day-oops!!), and other lost mail.  I began to wonder and question. What’s the lesson?  What am I to learn from all this? There were many: ask for help communication techniques be specific There is a vast community and special angels of people who want to help you find your lost cat.  Ask them for help. (It’s not my norm to ask for help BTW—hmm? that’s interesting-see below [another lesson?])  Many went above and beyond what I ever would have dreamed of; to offer advice, lend me a trap, canvas the neighborhood, make me posters and sincerely care about Josephine being returned home. My heart was so [...]
