Home and Business Transitions

It has been 6 weeks since we moved into our new home, and I still have not processed enough to create a really coherent post on the subject. At some point, I want to share all the synchronicities and happy accidents that surrounded our move, all the energetic uplevelling that took place (and is still taking place!) for me and my husband, and the impact of a couple of significant losses.

I also began working with The Morrigan just before we moved, and she has made it clear to me that one of the things I am required to do under her tutelage is stop hiding and treat my business like the significant entity it is.  I have spent enough time dipping my toe in and backing back out of the business world. It’s time to follow my own advice and uncover my light. So, there will be an official announcement soon regarding the name of the business and my offerings.

Lastly, I wanted to take a moment to thank you all for reading and for supporting me along my journey. My intention for every post is to share my own experiences so that others who are experiencing something similar will know they are not alone.  I hope to offer encouragement, and maybe even some guidance, but at the very least, some reassurance that there is light in the dark, and that some sense of order may be found even in chaos.

 

I will leave you today with this photo from our moving day. It was taken in the parking lot of Wal-Mart, where I had gone to get some necessities for our first night in our beautiful new home. It had rained really hard as I went in, and when I came out, there was this:

…and I knew everything was, is, and always will be just right.

Timothy Glenn ~ Patience: Still the Prime Virtue

Found this lovely gem on Laura Bruno’s blog this morning and knew it needed to be shared as widely as possible. I have nothing to add to Timothy Glenn’s brilliant piece, but I did especially appreciate the reference to The Hitchhiker’s Guide at the end 🙂

Laura Bruno's Blog

Here’s a very “timely” one from my good friend, Timothy Glenn.

Patience: Still the Prime Virtue

By Timothy Glenn

We’ve heard it throughout the ages, in various cultures and languages: Patience is the prime virtue. The issue of impatience has been popping up in lots of sessions with clients this year, and has raised its head in online chatter.

If you haven’t read it (or don’t remember the essence of it) you might reflect on Laura Bruno’s response to a classic case of mass impatience:

“Incremental and Lasting Change: Create New Systems and Safety Nets Before Summoning Destruction.”

The gist: some people wanted us to coalesce our energies to collapse the global economy so as to speed up our planetary transformation by “starving the beast”. Laura wisely counseled that it would be kinder and wiser to allow time for the unprepared to get prepared:

“A true, positive, lasting, sovereign change…

Hello, August! and, Kari Samuels’ Monthly Forecast

Here we are looking toward Autumn from the late summer glory of August. July was a challenging month for many, including me, what with Jason’s knee injury, getting settled into our new home, and adjusting to the massive energy uplevel that came with the move. I’m looking forward to August being a time of continued integration of new, higher frequencies, gardening, and breathing life into my infant business (more on that later).

I look forward every month to Kari Samuels’ forecast, in which she blends astrology, numerology, tarot, and spiritual guidance. I am sharing her forecast for August here, and it looks to be a time of intense clearing and seed-planting.

That’s all I’ve got for today. Enjoy the video!

Sharing: The Gnomist from Great Big Story

I found this wonderful video a few weekends ago, and I have not been able to stop smiling about it.

In Overland Park, KS, someone was creating little Gnome homes in a park, to the delight of all who visited.

Watch, if you are so inclined, and be enchanted…

Planting Paradise

Sharing this beautiful post from my friend, Laura. Thanks in large part to her and her awesome husband, as well as several other friends, Jason and I will be making this place our home at the end of this month!
To say that this place is a dream come true for us just doesn’t do justice to our journey. I will write more about that once we get settled in to the new place, but for now, I leave you with Laura’s gorgeous photos.

Laura Bruno's Blog

The first summer we lived here — 2013 — this median facing an ugly view required a date with two batteries worth of weed whackers at least three times per week. We’re talking fast growing, out of control weeds on a strip of land with giant holes and rock hard, uneven soil, and an often flooded driveway. It crushed my soul to see this median as we approached our house.

I can barely believe the difference four years makes! This same strip is now a rain garden, bird and butterfly paradise, with serviceberry trees, Robinhood roses, sunflowers, lilies, milkweed, bachelor’s buttons, love in a mist, cosmos, and more. The fragrance alone is worth the trip. Last year, those roses bloomed from late May through the end of November with barely any care. Birds ate the hips this winter and spring.

Don’t ever doubt that you can change the world, one…

Unfiltered Thoughts on Creating Your Reality

Creating your own reality does not mean that you decide what you want, imagine every detail, wave your magic wand, and BANG! You wake up to the world you created, whole and complete.

At least it doesn’t mean that for me. And I suspect it doesn’t mean that for a lot…dare I say, most….people.

Instead, creating your own reality really happens in the small choices you make every day, moment to moment, about what you will and won’t believe, what you will and won’t give your attention and focus to, what you will and won’t allow into your life.

A shift happened inside me at some point in the last two years. I decided to just believe whatever I want to. A big, ole F you to anyone who thought I was nuts, stupid, gullible, or childish. I had long been drawn to “magickal” things and ideas…energy manipulation, manifestation, moving sideways along alternate realities, faeries, tree beings, and on and on. I was afraid to surrender to what I feared some would view as a child-like indulgence of imagination, especially since I was heavily invested in being the smart, studious girl I had earned a reputation for being. Smart girls and faeries did not go together in my world. But, little by little, I began to see that I could re-write the story of myself. I wasn’t stuck being the character I had created for myself. Just like a figure in a story, I could erase parts and change them. So, that’s what I have been doing.

It all really started with learning to accept certain things about myself, and peel away things that I had taken on, but that no longer suited me. For example, I have always loved knowing how things work. It’s a near-biological need to understand why this happens when I pull, push, twist, or throw that. That part of me has helped me begin to understand how to get what I want, how to manipulate the laws that govern our physical plane to move myself in the direction I want to go. For me, it is truly no different from understanding why my car goes when I push on the gas pedal (although some things are more important for me to retain than others…lol) Accepting my need to understand meant that I could strip away my feelings of nosiness, guilt, even shame, for probing into things that some considered none of my business, or that led me to information that was not always backed up by scientific research.  I do dearly love research, but I found that only accepting things that had a scientific backing no longer served me. So I let it go.

The work of accepting myself and stripping away things that are not myself led to moments of being allowed to glimpse the Mystery. I had what I have since called a Waterfall moment, when it felt like my head opened up and pure loving energy flowed in. The experience last for about 15 minutes, and it changed me. I started to see things out of the corner of my eye. I found Reiki and my friend Laura, who has mentored me and loved me as friend, sister, and child for lifetimes. I began to hear music in the still dark. I began to notice things about others that were different from my memory of them.  I began to find that if I sent loving energy to someone who was being rude or mean to me, they often came back either entirely changed or changed toward me. And I began to believe my eyes and ears and intuition.

In each moment that I see, hear, or sense something that is outside the norm, I find that I have a split-second decision to make: do I trust this or do I not trust this. Do I accept this as real or do I not accept this as real. It comes down to an almost subconscious choice to trust myself and the Universe.  But I can make that choice because I did all the other work, all the small, slow steps leading up to this. The Veil is parting wider for me because I chose each time the opportunity presented itself to look to the other side and not turn my back. When I heard the voice and felt the waves of energy from my Tree friends, I opened my heart and hugged them with my arms, even though I felt silly the first few times and wondered if I was losing my mind. I did not turn my back on Them and pretend I didn’t hear. And the first time I felt that an animal had a message for me, I accepted it for truth and went about trying to figure out what the message was. And when I saw a flit of iridescent wings and an echo of giggles, I stood in wonder and thanks for the gift of having seen my first faery since childhood. For every new Mystery glimpsed, I offer thanks, and I refuse to turn my back any more. This is how I create my reality. This is how you will create your reality, too.

Acknowledge what you want. Devote your attention to looking for the things you want. Be aware of what is reality for others, for it could impact you, too, especially in the beginning, but do not allow yourself to be drawn into their version of what is true. It’s like being aware that there are other tv channels playing other things, but since you don’t want to watch those other channels, they cease to mean anything significant to you.

You will find whatever you look for. I promise.

What Happens After I Agree to Work With a Goddess? 9 Suggestions for Where to Start

During last nights’s New Moon meditation, I began to wonder how to work with my new Goddess friend now that I had connected with her, and she kindly offered some suggestions. They seem useful no matter which Goddess you work with, so I wanted to share them here.  (For help connecting with your patron Goddess, or a temporary guide Goddess, please see my offering, here.)

  1. Write a letter to her introducing yourself and explaining what you hope to accomplish with her help.  She can’t help or guide you if she doesn’t know what direction you would like to go. Write it in the same spirit with which you would explain to a teach er or therapist what you hoped to accomplish by working with them.
  2. Ask her what she would like to teach you. Perhaps there is something your Higher Self wants to learn and that part of you contacted this Goddess for that specific purpose.
  3. Ask her what she would like in return. This is not a one-way street. She will want something in return for her time and effort, whether it is simple friendship and an acknowledgement of her presence and influence, or something more material, like offerings, poetry, or some other physical action. Ask in meditation, and listen for the answers.
  4. Read about her history and culture.  What pantheon is she associated with? Greek? Roman? Egyptian? Find out what her native people believed about her.
  5. Then, tune in to her in meditation and ask her if the stories are true.  You may find that they are often exaggerated or skewed to fit the prevailing attitudes of the people she is associated with.  Ask her what she wants you to know about her.
  6. Read and learn about any totem animals or other symbols she is associated with, and learn to watch for those signs.
  7. Ask her if there are other signs you can watch for to know that she is near or has her hand in the current situation.
  8. Find out if she is fond of certain crystals, or loves particular places (such as bodies of water, forests, or mountains) and incorporate those into your life, as much as possible.
  9. Figure out which chakra(s) she is associated with.  That will tell you a lot about how to work with her, what lessons are in store, and how to proceed with learning them.

Approach your new friendship exactly as you would friendship with a human, physical person… go slowly, show respect, offer the benefit of the doubt, and make every effort to understand.  These are the foundations of a healthy, vibrant relationship that will be beneficial to you both!

Welcome, The Morrigan

morrigan21

I am not usually a fan of poetry which is too sing-song-y, but this one popped into my head almost fully formed and begged to be used as a prayer for the new moon ritual I am planning tomorrow night in honor of a renewed friendship and lessons to come.

Welcome, The Morrigan

The Raven wings, they suit her,
because the birds are quick and smart
Feared by ancients when her legend formed,
She took their spirit to heart.
Softly borne on blackened feathers,
She now wings into my life
to guide me deeper into my truth
and help me shine my light.
The Bear could be her totem, too,
for her ferocious guard of the land
and her gentle, nurturing other face,
her firm but loving hand.
And then, there’s the playful maiden form,
dancing in on faery winds!
She catches me up in her arms
and we giggle as we spin.
This goddess guide, The Morrigan,
a new and ancient friend,
your faces I remember now
from other wheres and whens.
I honor you and welcome you-
I’ve missed our moonlit meetings!
To my friend and teacher once again,
I offer love and warmest greetings.

Connecting with the Goddess: Reiki and Akashic Records Specials

What a wonderful weekend this past one was! So much magick and synchronicity packed into just two days! One of the things that happened was a new connection with a patron Goddess, who is leading me in new directions of growth, both in my internal landscape and in my business. She (and my sweet friend, Laura) has suggested that I offer these two specials for the last part of May and the month of June.  These prices are good if paid through June 30.

Image from SageGoddess.com, my favorite place for crystals and magickal tools. 

The first is a new offering called Connecting with Your Patron Goddess.
This is for anyone who feels the desire to connect with a patron Goddess either temporarily or on a more permanent basis. I will go into the Akashic Records and request for the client that a willing Goddess most suited to her (or his) current needs and energy present herself for partnership. The session will last about an hour and will include an introduction and answers to any questions the client wishes to ask about how to work with the Goddess who comes forward.  The cost for this session is $77. 

The second is my standard distance Reiki session with chakra reading, but at a discounted price of $55.
During your distance Reiki session, I will tune in to each chakra center and relay the dream-like images I receive at each point. As well as providing extra healing at those centers which need it most, knowing what blocks you may be experiencing at each chakra center will help you focus your own energy and mindset work to maximum benefit.  This session includes an email follow-up summarizing all the information I receive.  For more information on what Reiki is and how a distance session works, please see my Reiki FAQ, here.

Please contact me at linettecchance@gmail.com for more information or to set a time for your session.
