The Magic of Saying Yes

An interesting development I have noticed is that my spirit guides are prompting me more and more to say yes to unusual requests.As a result, the results are usually very beneficial.

One example is that for many years, my past life sessions were mostly regressions. This process just takes a while, and must be done in quiet, thus requiring a private session lasting one and a half to two hours in length.

However, many clients kept asking for a shorter faster method. They wanted to know more about their past lives but they wanted to find out something within shorter time frames. So I began doing clairvoyant past life readings within the confines of the metaphysical fairs that I do and also shorter clairvoyant readings at my home office or via Skype. I need the visual contact in order for the clairvoyance to show me pertinent information for each person. And I am getting confirmation from the clients that these are very effective and helpful. For those of you unfamiliar with the term, clairvoyance is simply clear seeing, using psychic vision and no other tools. My spirit guides are helping me bring through excellent readings for my clients.

Recently another unusual choice was when the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art invited me to participate in a special program this summer doing readings with a poet whom they assigned. I have never done anything like this before, and the performances turned out fantastic. The museum and the clients were thrilled with the results. The assistant curator described our collaboration as amazing and we were invited to do this not once, but three times. The poet and I are open to doing more of this and are looking for more opportunities of this nature.

A third request seemed very odd yet, I immediately felt my spirit guides to say yes. I was at a business expo a couple of years ago and a woman was manning a table to recruit help for the home health care service she was working for. I was set up as usual to do tarot readings. So this woman came over and got a reading, and remarked that she thought that maybe some of her co-workers might also be interested in getting readings. So the following week she called me and I thought this is what she was calling about. But her reason for calling was much different. She told me that she had two male patients who needed a male caregiver and all of her staff was female. She asked me if I had ever thought of doing that kind of work. I said no, I had never thought about it. I did not know why, but I felt certain that spirit had sent her to me and wanted me to help her. So I said yes, and for a year I took care of these two men. I did it part time in addition to my readings. The pay was awful, which is why caregivers are always needed, but that was not my reason for doing the work. I also did not tell most people that I was doing this. I did it for one year and it was an unusual learning experience.

I have a few more experiences that I will share in another post, but the key point is this. Often when we are presented with an unusual request, spirit is behind it. There is some life lesson that they want us to learn. Even when we may say no at first, the question may be asked again. Spirit may be presenting these opportunities because we needed some other stimulus for opening our awareness and raising our perception. Saying yes to even the odd or at first unappealing requests may open doors that yield psychic treasures, amazing real life developments and gratifying discoveries.

Saying yes keeps our energies flowing.

Death as a Gift

Earlier this year, a new neighbor moved into the apartment next to mine. He was a polite and pleasant person, so we would get together and chat a couple of times a week. 

Then Saturday morning, just as I was heading off to work, a stranger stopped me and asked if the dumpster by the parking lot is the one we are supposed to use. I answered his question and then told him that I didn't recognize him and wondered who he was. He then told me that his brother had just died two days before of a heart attack. He said that he had called 911 but that he was gone by the time the ambulance got there. He was talking about my neighbor. 

I was shocked because he did not look like he was struggling with physical health. In fact, he had just gotten a bicycle a month ago and was enjoying riding it. 

How odd it seems when a person a good bit younger than myself, about a dozen years younger, was just hanging out and talking with me just a few days ago suddenly dropped dead. Sudden deaths and young deaths are always the ones that jolt our consciousness the most, compared to a person who we know has been struggling with a serious disease for a long time.

A quote that I have found helpful in these types of circumstances is one by the groundbreaking and influential author Carlos Castaneda.

“Death is the only wise advisor that we have. Whenever you feel, as you always do, that everything is going wrong and you're about to be annihilated, turn to your death and ask if that is so. Your death will tell you that you're wrong; that nothing really matters outside its touch. Your death will tell you, 'I haven't touched you yet.”

Carlos Castaneda, Journey to Ixtlan

When we are jolted by the unexpected death of someone near us, I keep my perspective by knowing that I am still alive because it is not my time to die yet. This awareness wipes out the fear that a person may carry around for a while when they think thoughts like "I wonder how much time I have left?"

Knowing that it is not our time yet, we can get up every day and embrace the fact that we still have more time and more to do, and take a look at what those things are that we most want to do. This helps us make the important choices and silences the question that some people ask when they ask "I wonder what I am supposed to be doing?" You are supposed to be doing whatever you feel is most important to do. Amazing how the answers change when we tell ourselves that it is important to act decisively and shake off lethargy and clarify our visions for ourselves.

In this way, death can be a gift reminding us to be more conscious in appreciating and fully living this day we are in.
