leap of faith

one thing i have learned by doing readings for others, is that frequently - mostly - i will hear myself say something that i need to hear as well. it is a phenomenon that i've discussed with other readers, as well. the person who sits down with me for a reading brings me a gift of insight as well. i'm not sure if people who come for readings understand that.

another thing i've noticed is that themes will emerge if you do a lot of readings in a short period of time... say 18 in 6 hours.

the theme for the readings i did at the expo last sunday was about following one's path. how will i know if i'm on the right path? wondered one querant after another. am i on the right path? am i doing what Spirit/Goddess/God wants me to do?

and time after time, i gently as possible said, life doesn't come with an instruction book, you know. even once we figure out what it is we're supposed to be doing, we're in a conversation with Spirit, not a classroom. we don't get given all the directions all at once the way we expect we should because that's what we're used to. finding out a glimmer of one's true Self is like a gift, and like a gift we expect it to come with instructions. but life's not something we assemble, though at least, the batteries ARE included.

i think that Spirit understands how scared we are, how intrinsically like children we must coaxed into the wonder of all that we are. because the Light blinds us the closer we get to it, the more we hesitate, as if we stumble on the edge of a precipice. if we can't see it, we think, how can it be There?

the only way to Know, is to leap.

and furthermore, the war must end. blessed be.

I am intrigued by readings and readers - and all that goes along with it.

profound, your insights are so powerful, I always ask myself, am I on the right path? am I doing what God wants me to do? Basically I am a scared little girl who whines alot.
