I received a request for a Life Reading from J.J., who asked the following question:
I am here on a mission and I wonder if you get any impressions on that. I feel unsure as to what I am here to do. I do so many different things, I can’t seem to pick just one. I survived a near death experience, at which time I was told that I was here on a mission. I wonder if you can help me to more clearly define the mission. I have many natural talents, including the fact that I am psychic.
Will I find a man who will love and be loved? Someone who cares about the spiritual aspects of existence like myself? Someone to laugh with and teach with?
The Ferris Wheel
Throughout our evolution we’ve become experts at wrapping ourselves around belief structures, socially constructed concepts and patterns of behavior. Some people are born with the gift of seeing beyond these rigid structures to a more expansive, evolved point of view. These are known as our shamans, our healers, our psychics. We are attuned to a more expansive energy that goes beyond our limited egos and we perceive time-space as a complex, interconnected matrix in which all possibilities exist at once, because we are multidimensional beings. The select few of us who incarnate with the gift of psychic perception are endowed with the capacity to uplift humanity at a time of urgent need for everyone to open their hearts and recognize universal love, compassion and forgiveness. This can often “feel” like an impossible mission, maybe too overwhelming, because so many people are in need.
The mission is realized each and every day in the way that presents itself effortlessly. You do not need to “look” for how to realize your mission, because life naturally presents it to you in each and every moment, through the people you meet, your daily interactions, right down to the conversations you have with yourself in your own head.
Imagine yourself as the center point of an enormous ferris wheel. Each cart holds one aspect of your personality, like a holographic self, that keeps going around and around this wheel of life—your life cycle on this earthly plane. All your little selves, all the parts of you, combine to form a whole and your real self is always at the center, observing it all from a place of full realization, without judgment, just simply there. Each aspect of you keeps going around – sometimes enjoying the ride, sometimes fearful, frustrated, or bored… All ages of you from infant to adolescent to adult to elder: Each one has its time and place on the ferris wheel and each one has a different perspective at each moment. The center point sees and knows all. This is who you are. Pure consciousness.
When your soul was ready to incarnate into this life, you signed up for your own ferris wheel ride and so the best thing you can do is enjoy it. Love it. Self-love is essential for the ones who wish to experience life fully without imposing limitations in the form of judgments, negative thoughts, and even so far as harboring a rigid opinion about oneself or someone else. A healer can help people move beyond self-limitation by facilitating an awakening into a more expansive consciousness.
You will attract your partner to you when your soul is ready to share your unique gifts. There is no need to go “looking” or to feel pressure to find that special someone, because he or she will appear when the timing is right in your life. In the meantime, enjoy your life and find richness deep within yourself.
“Grow a Beard”
Wizards grew long beards because they wanted their words—their wisdom—to tumble out of their mouths across their hearts and down into the earth, where the vibrational frequency of their words would be grounded into manifest reality. This is the same reason for long dresses and skirts—to allow this wisdom to flow through and around oneself, to receive from the earth and allow it to flow down as a giving back.
Accept and honor yourself as a healer in your community. Allow your style of clothing to be an expression of your gifts: Find one that is all your own; your favorite colors, fabrics, patterns and textures. Take time every day to sit quietly in nature and receive. Find a balance between alone time and social time. Do not sacrifice yourself to social pressures or expectations of others. Take time for yourself to find your voice.
Be a story teller. Find people you can sit with in a sacred circle—a campfire—not a party atmosphere, but rather, a kind of ceremony where the intention is to listen and express oneself authentically from the heart. Tell your story. Let it flow freely and try not to censor what you say. Don’t be afraid of other peoples’ reactions: surprise, tears, laughter… because they are on their own ferris wheel ride and can only understand your ferris wheel relative to their own. So, their reactions should not deter you from telling your story and letting it flow like the words of a wizard tumbling down to the earth.
We need your story.
If telling stories heals you, then it will heal the world. It is a possible mission, simple, really. Just keep showing up. Don’t hide. Your minor health problems will subside because you will stop repressing yourself out of concern for other peoples’ opinions and reactions. This has been holding you back and this has been the source of your discomfort.
Grow a beard and let it flow.
