Life is hard. I don’t think anybody would disagree with me on that. But, sometimes, I think it’s hard only because we make it so. It is really easy to focus on what’s not working – unsatisfying job, unfulfilling relationship, wasted time/dreams….never mind car troubles, bills – taxes! The list can go on and on. Many of us think that the deck is stacked against us. And the more that we focus on all of our worries, the more they seem to pile up! Is that all that there really is to life?
Have you ever had “one of those days”? You wake up late for work. When you jump out of bed, you stub your toe. You spill your coffee as you’re trying to get ready, only to realize that you’re out of milk! Your shower is cold, the traffic is worse than usual, and you can’t find a parking space. Naturally, your day is shot. One thing after another goes wrong.
The only thing that was truly wrong in this scenario was the perspective. When we focus only on the negative, that becomes the only thing that we can perceive. When I find myself in that cycle of negative thinking, I immediately stop myself and try to think of something positive. By turning my thoughts to something that IS good, I am able to get a little perspective.
As soon as I wake up in the morning, I lay in my bed and think of something that I’m grateful for. Sometimes it’s too early to even be that positive! In that case, I think of something good that happened the day before – or even just something that I was able to accomplish that day. I don’t get out of bed until I have a positive thought. That helps me set the tone for the day.
Of course, as the day goes on, other fears, worries and resentments pop up. When that happens, I do it again – think of something positive. It’s a constant process. It takes work. The more you practice thinking positive, the easier it gets. I just recently did a gig that wasn’t as profitable as I had hoped. It was a lot of work to prepare for it and it was a long day. Inevitably, I started to get frustrated and depressed. I was able to recognize where that train of thought was going. So, instead I focused on the fact that the day of the event was beautiful and I got to be outside. I was in the company of friends and we made each other laugh all day. It was a great atmosphere with a lot to see. By looking at my day that way, I could see that it wasn’t a loss. I didn’t make a lot of money, but I had a fantastic experience.
So, what do you want your life to be? Do you want a life filled with fear and frustration or one with peace and joy? You get to decide. Nothing is perfect and life is rarely easy, but there is beauty and light everywhere. All you have to do is look for it.
If you still need a little help finding the blessings in your life, come by Cafe Tu Tu Tango this Friday or Sunday night to get a reading from me. Maybe I can help you find a new perspective!
I have been going through some pretty major changes in my life lately. I have made some decisions that may appear a little risky to others. One of those changes was to quit my day job and become a full time artist and reader. Now, let me let you in on a little secret – not that long ago, if you suggested that I quit my job for that reason, I would have told you that you were crazy. But, that’s exactly what I did.
I won’t lie – it hasn’t been a totally easy transition. There has been a lot of hard work and quite a few sacrifices. Regardless, I know it was the right decision. I followed my heart. Sounds easy, right? Of course it isn’t! Most of us don’t have faith in ourselves. We don’t believe that we can deal with the challenges we may face or the setbacks. And many don’t even know what their higher self sounds like.
For me, the key is joy. As I looked at my life – what was working and what wasn’t – I focused on finding the joy. In the beginning, all I could see was the negative (naturally :-P) so decided to remove the things from my life that brought me pain. That has been quite a process in itself! There were many things in my life that made me uncomfortable, but I was used to them. I very much believed that the devil you know is way better than the one you don’t know. But, I soon started to realize that my expectations that change brought more hardship were preventing me from moving forward. And so I discovered that the unknown wasn’t so scary after all.
As I was banishing negativity from my life, I found that there really were things that brought me joy! When new opportunities arose that could showcase my talents, I became excited. I no longer worried about whether or not they would be successful. I didn’t succumb to the fear of “can I do it?”. I was just happy. I began to realize that, because I wasn’t holding on the the fear and the doubt, I could just experience joy.
To me, the joy that I felt when I was asked to show my work – joy that was no longer hampered by fear that no one would come or doubt that I could handle the amount of work – was my heart talking to me. Joy is the language of my heart. Because I started listening to what my heart was saying, it’s started talking to me more. 😉 Now I know, that no matter what setbacks may occur, I will always get up and dust myself off. I have figured out the language of my heart and will listen to whatever it has to tell me ❤
Come see me this Friday, Saturday and Sunday for a reading at Cafe Tu Tu Tango if you think that you need a little help interpreting the language of your heart!
Where it all began:
In my home growing up in the 60’s it was common to commune with loved ones who have passed, or lend guidance to those in need using divination tools. I was fortunate in that my grandmother was very good at this, and as a result had most of our neighborhood at her door. I learned a lot more about energy work when I realized, and awakened my kundalini. My spiritual journey continued in my 20’s and I found myself in the ashram in southern California staying all of 3 years. It was the 70’s after all. When I spiritually was able to blend what my childhood had shown me with my newly found techniques of raising my inner consciousness I returned home. I began to use the skills I had learned as a child, and on my journey at the ashram. I began “reading” for all my friends!
I soon began doing physical mediumship as well. It just kind of happened most unexpectedly. I love table-tipping, and all types of physical mediumship. I love spirit communication in all it’s wondrous forms. I regularly attend hunted cemeteries with various groups as this is a wonderful environment for anyone sensitive to the spirit world. My table-tipping has proven not only to be fun for me, but for all that participate. For the next several years I would do the physical mediumship, and table-tipping demonstrations at the end of the 6 week physic development courses given at a spiritual bookstore “Avalon” in Orlando. I would also participate in the psychic fairs there. I have been reading, and doing mediumship “professionally” for 25 years.
I received my hypnosis certification in 2008 I am certified in Ericksonian hypnosis which will enable you to unlock “your secret power. I do work with de-stressing, weight loss, smoking, anxiety, and much more.
I have read all over the country from New York to California and all states in between. I’ve also have had the privilege of reading in Glastonbury England, and Cardiff Wales.
Currently I am doing private readings by appointment. I schedule private parties, as well as corporate events.
For the quicker spur of the moment personalities who love the energy of the outdoors, I can be found at the Lake Eola farmers marker in downtown Orlando. You can also come by Cafe Tu Tu Tango’s on friday nights if you prefer a fun, and exciting environment.
Remember always let your heart be your guide for tucked deep within lies all the answers we could ever desire. Even the answers that we may not yet have asked the questions to!
I look forward to meeting each, and every one of you.
Enjoy your journey, always seek the truth…
Be Honorable and Blessed
