New FAVE Book

I was just outside with our Chloe, most excellent black cat. She was munching tender grass tips and I was spinning some Bluefaced Leicester wool on my Golding "spider" spindle, gifted to me by the Golding's themselves a few years ago. All of a sudden I got the strange urgency to come upstairs, sit myself down at the computer, and write a blog post. About what? My fave new book, that's what!

Now it's not like I've read this entire book through or anything. However, something tells me this is going to be one of those books I'll refer to so much it's going to get dog-eared...or is that cat-eared?... I'll back up a moment and explain why I think this is so.

A dear friend and mentor, Ravenstar, author of The Healing Room, has been introducing me over the years to the wonders of many metaphysical topics, numerology included. In fact, we 'met' now years ago on a wonderful Tarot site, Aeclectic Tarot. You know when you KNOW that someone is going to be important in your life? Well, I KNEW that was the case with Ravenstar. She is one of the most generous (especially with her time), caring, and loving people I know.
We've been delving into numerology a bit more of late, especially with regards to folks who are in my life that are not having an easy time of it. Ravenstar is a patient teacher who never fails to get my thinking juices flowing. She mentioned a book, Dan Millman's, "The Life You Were Born To Live," and I remembered she had quoted from this same book before. That alone sent me to Amazon (one recommendation for a book is one thing; a second recommendation for the same book sets me into action...) and I found what appears to be a decent copy for the tidy sum of .22 cents plus the $3.99 shipping. So I ordered it. Among other things the book focuses on numerology and I'm looking forward to when it arrives in my mailbox.

An 'aside' thought...What on earth did I do before Amazon and Alibris offered used books for sale?????? I cannot imagine life without them. And as much as I love libraries, sometimes ya just have to have a book that resides in your own house.

And yes, I know I haven't told you what my newest FAVE book is yet. Consider that I'm giving a necessary, climactic, build-up to the name... Don't mind me, Sagittarius Suns are like that.

Not content to wait for the book that Ravenstar recommended, my current numerology interest was piqued enough to send me to my own home library for a book on the same topic. Hmmmm. Didn't I purchase a numerology book when I was at school at FOTS at some point? I ALWAYS try to purchase at least one book at FOTS as my way of 'giving back.' But let's face it, I don't need much of a reason to purchase a book that has caught my eye! LOL! So I searched through my books and found, "Numerology and The Divine Triangle," by Faith Javane and Dusty Bunker, Whitford Press, 1979. I had indeed purchased this a few months back at FOTS and was planning to delve when the mood struck.

THE MOOD HAS STRUCK. Oh my goodness! What on earth was I waiting for? This book has received fabulous reviews on Amazon AND deals with three of my favorite topics: Astrology, Tarot, and now, Numerology. I sat down with it this morning and couldn't tear myself away to even get dressed. Now that's a good book. BTW, I'm still in my jammies.

One of the things I did was figure out my 4 personal numbers: the Life Lesson Number, the Soul Number, the Outer Personality Number, and the Path of Destiny Number. Even me, with a math disability, can do these calculations easily. So what was so profound? This was the first time that the entire journey I'm on now, as well as what led up to this journey, was spelled out for me. And I mean spelled out like a neon, flashing sign. I was so moved I started to cry with intense emotion as I was reading.

I can only imagine how helpful this book will be in my work as a Minister and Spiritual Medium. I have a feeling the book will be equally important to anyone who is reading this post and finds themselves drawn to it. After all, it's no mistake when a book falls out of the bookshelf and hits you on the foot. Consider this post just that, except you won't have to ice your foot!

Minister-In-Residence At Lily Dale

Last week I was Minister-In-Residence for Fellowships Of The Spirit (FOTS), where I go to school, on the grounds of Lily Dale. Happily, Chris joined me for the entire week and was, as always, loving and supportive. We stayed in the comfortable apartment above the FOTS' office in the Dale. My adopted brother, friend, and fellow classmate, Jeff Dragon Star stayed in second bedroom of the apartment during our first night but after that we had the whole apartment to ourselves. Hands down, it was the BEST working vacation we have ever had!!! Chris had done some cooking prior to us leaving on our trip, so we enjoyed oodles of vegetables, rice, and other dishes that made us feel right at home even tho' we were away from home.

FOTS hosts the morning meditation in Lily Dale's Healing Temple all through the active summer season, and one of my duties as M-I-R was to lead this meditation. On the first morning I was a bit anxious...after all, I had never led meditation for anyone but myself! The folks who showed up each morning were delightful, patient, and helpful. They even put their chairs back once meditation was over. I met many wonderful visitors, including a friendly ginger cat who made its way nearly every morning over to the Temple as I was setting up. I started to call him the 'Healing Temple Cat,' and never did learn his given name. Chris commented that what I called him would make a dandy title for a children's book. Indeed, it would!!! May have to act on that sometime down the line... One such morning this spunky, orange cat sat on my lap as I recited my morning rosary on the bench outside the Temple. He literally fell asleep on the rosary for over a half hour. I had one hand gently laying on his back. I think he was truly enjoying the Reiki healing energy being sent!!

BTW, each morning I would get up at 4 am, as I usually do at home, and have my own personal meditation session. Then I'd get to the Temple around 7 am, set up, say my rosary, hang out with the Healing Temple Cat, and lead group meditation. Not a bad way to start a day if you ask me!

Other jobs performed as M-I-R included making sure the FOTS' brochures were distributed all over Lily Dale. Chris said he didn't mind at all helping me deliver the brochures. I told him there was no paper boy more handsome than he! Ha!

On the Sunday evening I was in Lily Dale, I was to be chairperson for a Spiritualist service at the FOTS' Lakeside Learning Center. This, too, in addition to leading meditation, was a 'first' for me. I was so excited I giggled as I began. Geesh...like a little kid! Once again the folks present were patient and kind, even unto helping me when I got into a bit of a jam. For some unknown reason I called the names of the mediums to come up all at once, instead of one at a time. What was I thinking, for goodness sakes? In unison the congregation corrected me and thankfully no havoc of mediums tripping over each other ensued! LOL!

Wednesday evening found me helping out with the Home Circle at FOTS. According to the FOTS' brochure, a Home Circle is where you can: "Learn to meditate and/or deepen the process and experience the silence for yourself; Unfold and develop your gifts of mediumship and healing; Experience the rewards of spiritual community when praying and meditating with others." During the summer, Rev. Greg Kehn runs the Home Circle. The FOTS' brochure lists Rev. Kehn as "...an acclaimed 4th generation Spiritualist medium and compassionate counselor. He has dedicated himself to spiritual work since his ordination in 1980. Greg's highly detailed and accurate work has made him a regular guest throughout the U.S. on radio and TV. He maintains offices in Lily Dale, NY and Ft. Myers, FL." I had great fun in this Home Circle and gave several messages myself. Plus, I received a spot-on message from Tony, who brought through my Ma. I knew my Ma had been visiting me when I was at the Healing Temple for meditation each morning, but apparently she followed me to other places around Lily Dale, as well. Nice!

I also attended Lily Dale's Thursday Development Class run by Rev. Patricia Price. Wonderful! The theme for that evening was nature spirits and elementals. Patricia is a lovely, sincere, and caring woman, with a great sense of humor and beautiful, twinkling eyes. I enjoyed being in the fabulous energy that flowed in and around our class.

Now all the above was truly memorable but the icing on the cake had to be that I had the chance to do platform readings in front of very large audiences for 5 of the days I was M-I-R. All in all, I read at least once during those days...sometimes at a second session...and sometimes I gave more than one reading per session. I read at the Auditorium, Assembly Hall, Forest Temple, and at the beloved Inspiration Stump. These experiences were worth no less than GOLD to me. Amazing things happened at each one, but they were of such a personal nature, both for me and the people I read for, that I cannot relay them here on the blog. However I think it would be correct to call what I experienced a LEAP in my psychic mediumship development. Also, I carefully watched, studied, and inhaled the varied ways each incredible medium relayed information, be they registered Lily Dale mediums or visiting mediums, learning more than I ever could have from just reading books. It was EXHILARATING!

Add to all the above the fact that Chris and I took regular walks each day and evening (stopping to chat with the various Dale cats), swung daily on the swing set, had fun sipping excellent coffee and tea at Cup-a-Joes (where the conversation is always excellent), unwound by watching old videos left for our enjoyment in the apartment, and truly appreciated each other's company. Yes, it was a vacation both of us treasured and neither of us shall ever forget.

Five FREE Skype Or Phone Readings - August

It's August! Time again for my offer of 5 free Skype or phone readings. I've been away for most of the first two weeks of August and so this month's offer is occurring later than usual. The first 5 people to respond to this offer will get a free 30-minute reading during the month of August. PLUS, I can...for no extra charge...send a MP3 recording of your reading to you via e-mail. Send your request with the type of reading you prefer to my e-mail address: spinningjenny57@hotmail. If you have a webcam and are signed up with Skype, this is as close to an in-person reading as we can presently get. Skype-to-Skype does not cost anything for either of us. If you do not have a webcam, a phone reading is instead offered. In either case, we simply agree on a day/time that is convenient for each of us. With regards to phone readings, if you are one of the 5, you will be required to call me on the day and at the time we agree upon.

I will list the first names of the first five people who respond to this offer on this post. Once the five people are listed, that's it for the FREE readings for that particular month. I'll re-post this offer at the beginning of each month and the process will begin again. One free reading per year, per individual, please. However, do tell your friends and family about the offer.

Please note that now that I am in seminary (see My First Week Of School), I can count my Skype/phone readings for my homework reading requirement. I will send a brief questionnaire t0 each person who requests a reading to kindly fill out and send back to me after they receive their reading. These questionnaires are then handed in to my teachers as proof that a reading has been completed.

An additional service of free distance healing energy work (distance Reiki) is offered to all who request a Skype/phone reading. This is optional on your part but hopefully something that you will desire. Once your reading is done and the questionnaire is filled out, just let me know if you're interested in the distance healing energy work and we'll schedule it. Please note that it only requires that we are in touch via e-mail (not phone or Skype as in the reading). Again, I can use this energy work for my healing homework assignment and so will ask that you fill out a brief questionnaire relating to it.

#1. Mark ~ completed
#2. Shirley ~ completed
#3. Tabbie
#4. Judy ~ completed
#5. Erin ~ completed

Thank you! I look forward to doing a reading and healing energy work for YOU!

The Nudge

It's not usual for me to write two posts on the same day, but rather than overloading the first post today (as I often did when I wrote the 'Spinning Spider Jenny' blog), I have chosen to relate in today's second post something important and rather unusual that happened to me at the Ft. Wayne, Indiana airport on the way home after my Life Between Lives Regression Therapy Session with Tina Zion.

I had just gotten through security at the tiny Ft. Wayne International Airport, where for the first time in my life I experienced a 'pat down.' A bit discombobulated after that, I settled into my seat, ready to while away the time with book in hand until my plane departure. I found myself nodding off here and there, but soon became acutely aware that there were some problems at the service desk of the gate I was at.

An employee of the airport was paging, over and over again, two people who were about to miss their flight. I watched with one eye on my book and one eye at the service desk. Soon the employee left and a woman toting her luggage arrived at the desk. A while later a man showed up at the desk, as well, and clearly they were together. When the employee returned, she told the couple that they had, indeed, missed their flight (even tho' their plane was standing there; still attached to the tunnel thingy that makes it possible for passengers to get from the terminal to the plane).

The woman who missed her plane burst out crying. The man tried to comfort her. I overheard her saying how it was all her fault...something about misconstruing that the time the plane was boarding was instead the time the plane was taking off. I tried not to eavesdrop but it became clear that the couple had just had their wedding ceremony and this was just another thing that didn't go right on their trip. The employee made things worse by saying they both may be charged a fee for this whole mishap (thankfully, that did not happen...whew!).

Next thing I knew I had this STRONG...and I mean strong...feeling that this couple was supposed to miss their flight. They were NOT meant to get on that airplane. I was not told why, and it didn't mean that the plane would necessarily encounter anything dire, however...this couple was NOT to get on that plane. I had the strong feeling it had to do with timing...perhaps as they headed home to their final destination from the airport via car or whatever...

Now let me just say that I've never gone up to anyone I don't know and give them a reading/message. But that's just what I was nudged to do. By this time the couple had gone to another gate (just a few gates down from me...there's only like 4 or 5 gates total in this wee airport anyways! lol!). I argued with Ken, my Guide. I told him I cannot just go up to these people who don't know me and I don't know them. I said telepathically to Ken, "If I'm supposed to tell them that no mistake was made, I need a sign, please." Well, I just about fell off my chair when I immediately saw the sign in the form of a butterfly, flying around the plane that still hadn't left...the plane which the folks who missed their flight were not get on to. Let's just say that in my just-facilitated Life Between Lives Regression Session, I was shown that the butterfly is my sign for me to trust and follow my intuition. Still I argued with Ken. I told him I'd be embarrassed to just go up to them. His reply came in the form of the butterfly going right up to the window that was in front of me. I think I mumbled something out loud like, "Bloody hell..." (I may be a Reverend, but I'm no Saint!) I grabbed my stuff and walked over to the couple.

The woman was still crying. I carefully sat down by them and told them that I was the woman sitting near the service desk. I introduced myself, told them I was a psychic medium, and reassured them both that they were NOT to get on that particular plane. I told the woman that she did not make a mistake and has no need to feel bad. I told them that this was not a coincidence; that it was important they didn't take that plane. I added that I didn't know exactly why, but it was so. I congratulated them on their recent wedding. They both thanked me and I walked back over to my original gate.

"Oh my goodness," I thought. Did I just do what I think I just did? I couldn't help but worry that Chris was going to think I've gone off my rocker. It took me awhile to settle down again.

A little while later the woman walked over to me. She said how very thankful she was that I...a complete stranger...came up to her to comfort her. She said her husband warned her not to get involved but she felt compelled to come over and thank me. We talked awhile. I was nudged to give her my contact card (good ol' Ken again!).

Soon I was getting ready to board my plane. What a blessing of a day. Perhaps little did this woman know what a gift she had bestowed on ME. Indeed, blessings all around!

Turning Point

I am now home after having traveled to Ft. Wayne, Indiana for a whirlwind overnight trip. I had a Life Between Lives Regression Therapy Session with Tina Zion. I thought I might be able to share this incredible journey here on the blog, but it was sooooo personal and sooooo sacred that words, at least at this time, won't be able to do it justice. I can say that Tina is one of the most loving and caring individuals I have ever met. She said more than once that it felt like we already knew each other and I agree wholeheartedly. If you are even thinking about having a Past Life or a Life Between Lives Regression Therapy Session, consider looking no further than Tina. Being with Tina is like being held in some of the most capable, loving arms you could imagine. I felt safe and honored. Thank you, dear Tina. Oh, and btw, you may want to consider purchasing any of her excellent CD's and books. I highly recommend her book, The Reiki Teacher's Manual: A Guide For Teachers, Students, and Practitioners...it is my FAVORITE Reiki book! Also, Past Life Regression - Entering into Your Own History (CD Version), with Tina's beautiful voice guiding you all the way.

From my friend and mentor, Janice, comes a parable. Janice wrote, "...something my dad loved to tell years ago. I'm getting shivers as I think of it." Janice said, "It had me in tears when I re-read it and it definitely made me think of you." The original parable was written by James Aggrey, "The Parable of the Eagle," in the 1920's. Janice added, "I like the way my dad told it. :))" Thank you, dear Janice.

"Once upon a time, while walking through the forest, a certain man found a young eagle. He took it home and put it in his barnyard where it soon learned to eat chicken feed and to behave as chickens behave. One day a naturalist who was passing by inquired of the owner why it was that an eagle, king of all birds, should be confined to live in the barnyard with chickens. 'Since I have given it chicken feed and trained it to be a chicken, it has never learned to fly.' replied the owner. 'It behaves a chickens behave, as it is no longer an eagle.' 'Still,' insisted the naturalist, 'it has the heart of an eagle and can surely be taught to fly.' After talking it over, the two men agreed to find out where this was possible. Gently the naturalist took the eagle in his arms and said, 'You belong to the sky and not the earth. Stretch forth your wings and fly.' The eagle, however, was confused, he did not know who he was and, and seeing the chickens eating their food, he jumped down to be with them again. Undismayed the naturalist took the eagle on the following day, up on the roof of the house and urged him again, saying, "You are an eagle, stretch forth your wings and fly.' But the eagle was afraid of his unknown self and world and jumped down once more for the chicken food. On the third day the naturalist rose early and took the eagle out of the barnyard to a high mountain. There he held the king of birds high above him and encouraged him again by saying, 'You are an eagle. You belong to the sky as well as the earth. Stretch forth your wings now and fly.' The eagle looked around, back towards the barnyard and up to the sky. Still he did not fly. Then the naturalist lifted him straight towards the sun and it happened that the eagle began to tremble, slowly he stretched his wings. At last with a triumphant cry, he soared away into the heavens. It may be that the eagle still remembers the chickens with nostalgia, it may even be that he occasionally revisits the barnyard. But as far as anyone knows, he has never returned to lead the life of a chicken. He was an eagle though he had been kept and tamed as a chicken. Just like the eagle, a person can become aware and discover their own life plan....for many this isn't easy...it can be painful and involves much work. Sometimes this is when we need the help of a rescuer to show us the way to our true potential."
