Trust And Timing

I've found myself saying more than once, especially over this last year, that I could never have guessed in my younger days that I'd be doing what I'm doing, studying what I'm studying, and finding interesting what I'm finding interesting. I feel so blessed to be what I am and where I am right now at this very minute.

"Learning is movement from moment to moment." ~ J Krishnamurti

I'm about 3/4's through with reading John Edward's, "Crossing Over - The Stories Behind The Stories." It's excellent. Tho' ANYTHING by John is wonderful reading. In fact, I believe I've mentioned in a past post how important his book, "Practical Praying - Using The Rosary To Enhance Your Life," has personally been for me...thankfully responsible for my happy saying-of-the-rosary on a daily basis.

I've noticed that a book often comes into my life when I most need it. This same thought can extend to a person entering OR leaving my personal realm of life, not to mention an event/situation taking place at a particular point in time...things happen for a reason and once the bigger picture can be seen it becomes evident that what has happened is often for the highest and best for all concerned. And let's face it, the big pic is sometimes not always immediately known up-front.

Right now, I couldn't imagine a book being more important to me than "Crossing Over." Why? Because as a Spiritual Medium it's gives me a 'behind-the-scenes' peek into John's life as a professional. The abundant info in this book's pages have literally addressed countless situations I've already encountered when I do readings and energy work/healing and is even heading future questions off at the if John knew I'd be having questions and here is the possible answer to them for my consideration. I KNOW that this book wasn't written personally for me, but that's what it feels like. Now THAT'S a good book...well, at least for!

Timing and trust are so important. A good friend of mine recently said that the years of work I put into my spinning/dyeing/knitting book, with all the ups and dowwwnnnnnssss, have prepared me for what I'm doing now and what's to come. My friend has added more than once, "You haven't seen nothin' yet...!" It's become increasingly clear that I HAD to write the book and go through all that I went through over the 5 years spanning from the original lightbulb-moment of what the book would entail to riding the rollercoaster all the way to actual publication. I HAD to do this to be emotionally and mentally strong enough for my work as a Spiritual Medium.

The easily-bruised Jenny of even a few years ago could not have handled the 'misses' (as in hits and misses) that inevitably occur when readings are given. After all, only Spirit/Mother God - Father God/Divine/Universe/I AM/One/etc. is correct 100% of the time. Another way to say it is that Spirit is never incorrect, but my interpretation of the information could be off John points out, all sorts of other reasons could be responsible for the information not hitting a home-run. In fact, John listed five reasons on why a client might not acknowledge/understand information given by a psychic medium, such as myself, in a reading: 1) As the psychic medium, I might be misinterpreting what I saw clairvoyantly and/or heard clairaudiently and/or felt clairsentiently/empathically; 2) If there's more than one person in the room, the info given might be meant for the person I'm not reading for; 3) The client might be unfamiliar with their own family tree or just might not be aware of what was being discussed in the reading, even tho' it may be true; 4) There may be personal reasons the client does not want to acknowledge something; and 5) John suggests the client might have a form of what he calls temporary "psychic amnesia" when being read for. This makes it hard for clients to remember their own middle name let alone the names of people and pets in their own family,

As a psychic medium I'm happy when the info I relay in readings is 75% correct and above, with my average in the 85-90%+ range on good days when the readings are spot-on and the information flowing freely. I was too much of a control freak for much of my life to have handled when the 'misses' occurred in readings before now, however this last year I have been consciously practicing my wise Aunt Loraine's "Let Go; Let God" advice. Add to that the important encouragement that's reinforced at FOTS, time and time again: to trust that Spirit will never let us down and to get out of our own way so we can be simply a clear and compassionate conduit for readings that are loving, healing, and helpful to the client.

Would a person who is not a professional or aspiring professional psychic medium like John's book, "Crossing Over?" I think so. However, for practicing psychic mediums, the book is GOLDEN.

Symbolic or Literal?

I love stories. Chris and I often read passages to each other from the books we're reading. Yesterday he read to me from "The Oldest Story In The World," by Phil Cousineau. Chris read a chapter called, "The Mountain Man." The story was wonderful but the quote that caught my attention was by Carl Jung, "Never say just a symbol."

When I heard this quote my head perked up because I've been knee-deep in symbolism and metaphors as I do my work as a Spiritual Psychic Medium. Often, when I've begun a reading for a client I see a clairvoyant visual, which could be a single picture or it could be moving like on a movie screen. Sometimes the visual is accompanied by clairaudient words and/or clairsentient feelings. Often when I begin a reading these days, I simply explain, as clearly as possible, what Spirit has given me to relay to the client. I tell them that what I'm relaying could be symbolic or it could be literal...or it could be a bit of both. Whether the client can relate to what I'm saying or not, I ask Spirit for more information and delve deeper into the 'story.' Thankfully, I get a power surge of Kundalini energy up my spine when what I've presented is on-target, letting me know to continue down that path. Otherwise, I continue to ask for help from Spirit to put us on the path that is for the best and highest good of the client.

So anyways, hearing Jung's quote read by Chris got me thinking about how Spirit gives me a story-of-sorts to gift the client who has trusted me to read for them. I have come to the conclusion that symbols are no less important than literal facts. That which is symbolic and that which is literal intertwine to tell a person's story. In that story there are many, many chapters already well as chapters happening right now...and chapters yet to unfold in the future. Each person who encounters a story, be it their own or that of someone else, may interpret the story in any variety of ways. We all have free will to play out the chapters. We all have free will to decide how we will respond.

Here's another 2 quotes that caught my eye in Mr. Cousineau's excellent book:

"There are only two or three human stories,
and they go on repeating themselves as fiercely
as if they had never happened before;
like the larks in this country,
that have been singing the same five notes
over for thousands of years."
~Willa Cather, O Pioneers!

"If you miss the story, you miss your life."
~ Phil Cousineau, The Oldest Story In The World

If someone had mentioned back when I was a kid, or a teen, or even during much of my adulthood, that I'd be interested in learning how to properly breathe, I would have thought they were pulling my leg. However, learning to breathe is exactly what one of my interests are these days.

For much of last year, whenever I had a session at school (FOTS), a small group of my classmates and I would go early (6:30 am) to class for a wonderful yoga session, led by Rev. Don Scott. For a bit about Rev. Don, scroll to his name on this page. So much has been positively life changing over this last year, and my introduction to yoga via Rev. Don is right up there at the top of the list. I would always leave FOTS after each school session determined to fit yoga into my life at home and for months I wasn't exactly successful at doing so. Well, I can finally say that yoga practice is now firmly ensconced into my daily ritual. Presently, I'm using DVDs to help with my yoga sessions, but down the line I'd like to go to local classes and study under a teacher, when finances permit. DVDs are particularly nice, however, in that you can use them at whatever time is most convenient for you...something not always the case with a live-person class.

Some of the really beneficial exercises that Rev. Don includes in his yoga sessions have to do with breathing. On the first day back of each school session, I would have a hard time holding my breath and even attempting what was suggested. If we were at school for a weekend tho', by the last day such breathing exercises were most definitely easier. This rightfully led me to believe that if I practiced breathing, I would get better at the exercises. And the benefits of such exercises include a calm, focused energy that's almost hard to describe unless you've felt it before.

I went a'searching on Amazon for breathing DVDs. I found only one where its primary goal was to teach correct breathing. What a wonderful DVD it is: "Max Strom - Learn To Breath." I had never heard of this Yoga Master who I have already come to respect. The breathing exercises are fabulous and do-able. Each day I practice, I get better and better at doing the techniques. I've now settled in to first working through Max's practice session (which takes less than 1/2 hour) and then moving on to one of my other yoga DVDs. Beginning with the breathing and moving on to yoga positions/stretching is a combo that works really well together. Eventually, when finances permit, I want to get Max's yoga 2-DVD set, "Max Strom Yoga - Strength, Grace, Healing," because I'm sure it's equally as good as his breathing DVD. He's also recently published a book that's getting great reviews entitled, "A Life Worth Breathing - A Yoga Master's Handbook of Strength, Grace, and Healing."

Now when I go back to school in September, perhaps I won't be struggling as much with Rev. Don's excellent breathing exercises. Here's hoping we can nudge Rev. Don into getting a breathing/yoga DVD collection ready and available for his groupies and to-be-groupies to purchase!

My friend and teacher, ravenstar, wrote a wonderful past post on breathing: . Please do check it out!!!

My New Business Card

My new business cards arrived in the mail today. I'm quite pleased with them. I like the black 'n white photos and the taddy bit of blue lettering. It's wonderful that the cards have all the pertinent info...all my cards prior to this were usually missing something important...not these...they're just right. Nice!

Five FREE Skype Or Phone Readings - July

It's July! Time again for my offer of 5 free Skype or phone readings. The first 5 people to respond to this offer will get a free 30-minute reading during the month of July. 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) will be 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, I will set up a 1/2 hour time slot with you to facilitate the distance healing energy work. 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. Nic - completed
#2. Anna - completed
#3. Melanie - completed
#4. Tina - completed
#5. Michelle

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