A Remarkable Woman

gift box

I was afforded the gift of meeting a remarkable woman on Saturday.

I’d say she found me by chance, but there are no chance meetings — life planned this I’m sure, just as life has moved me about like a chess piece making sure I’m in the right place at the right time.  Even on those occasions when I manipulated the direction thinking, of course, that life didn’t know what it was doing, I find myself exactly where and with whom I need to be — most of this recognized in hindsight. My intuition however is being honed.

It’s actually pretty magical.  No, I don’t just sit around waiting for life to tell me what I need to do — I am in action, I’m doing AND being.  I remember oh so well my next door neighbor where I grew up coming home from school and announcing “I am a noun verbing.”  That was what…50 years ago?…but it stuck with me because she’s right.  I am a noun verbing. And I’m rarely disappointed.

So this meeting with a remarkable woman…I’m still not quite sure how she found me but she scheduled a Reiki appointment with me. We had only spoken on the phone and then via a text message so I had no idea what she looked like.  I had evidently left the front of the office for a moment and when I returned, she was standing at the cash register paying for her Reiki session.  The moment she looked up from the cash register I sensed that she and I were connected at some level beyond time and space. I find it curiously exuberant when I recognize spirit incarnate.

The Reiki session alone was extraordinary.  Afterwards we chatted as I do with all my Reiki clients — about the session, about life and work…yet underneath, around, above and through it all was this intense sensation of familiarity, of connection. We both acknowledged it without much ado.  And I think we both left with the certainty that we would meet again.

I’ve thought about this connection all weekend.  It is a gift that keeps on giving.

 

Living the Truth

I’ve come to the conclusion that this banquet of sensations that are roiling about in my body, mind and heart are my spirit’s invitation to expand…to be more of who I say I am…to stop hiding my greatness.  All of my astrological charts, my Tarot readings, and in particular my own intuition, are pointing to “expansion”.

I had a phenomenal phone conversation with a good friend the other day.  Expansion became the topic.  Of particular interest was what is happening currently in my life that is allowing for this expansion and what obstacles or issues have kept me from experiencing it up to now.  

Interestingly enough, through just a bit of prompting from my friend, I was able to pretty much pinpoint an event that occurred where I was able to release a long-held belief/judgment that instantly created the sensation of breathing deeply, expanding my heart realm, opening my arms to opportunity, a clarity that blossomed forth from my solar plexus.  A weight was lifted.  Magical stuff.

So now I’m resting with that yummy sensation of expansion and realizing all the opportunities that are available to me — specifically in the area of conscious movement.  There’s Nia (which I love and have been teaching for 12 years) and there’s also many other venues available to consider.  

Presence.  Expansion.  Magic.  

I’m moving with it…and it feels exciting.  It feels risky.  It feels good.  

Look out world….
