September 29, 2017 | eaglespi | Leave a comment Feeling challenged as you continue to answer your soul’s call? I sure have been at points in my life. In fact I can imagine that my guides have rolled their eyes a few times and wanted to drag me out of the “spiritual closet” when I have wished to retreat or play small. I am sure my guides may have wanted to scream, ‘Get out of the “Spiritual Closet” and stay out!’ many times as I was growing up and trying so hard not to hear the voices, not to feel others’ “stuff” and not to know stuff. No Sally the Psychic for me I always said… and frankly continue to say to this day. In fact as a joke, one of my friends has threatened on numerous occasions to stick a blue neon Psychic sign on my lawn just because he knows that would freak me out!!! But with time, comes perspective. Now I understand that these abilities are gifts and I have a choice how to use them. I am not on call 24/7, even though I committed to a life of service in the mid 90s during a deal I made with God to be saved from my bout with Cancer. I have learned that self-care is key to being of best service. And that is part of the reason I return to the southwest regularly. It isn’t, however, always a restful time. There have been dead people, past lives, time with fellow healers that can be an adventure and a half, facing my fear of heights as repeated get guided to hike up crazy things that only more adventurous folks would enjoy, a heck of a lot of driving (including across the Utah desert in the dark on freaking empty… without freaking too much) and on and on it goes. These journeys away are always learning opportunities and a great chance for more growth. Perhaps if I was told as a child… or even as a young woman that several other of my family members had some of these gifts my life’s path would have been different… dare I say probably much easier? I have wasted too many moments fearful of being who I truly am. For the last 20 years since making that deal with God — “Let me live and I will be of service for the rest of my life” — it has been a pretty big adventure. I have had to be ME. And I love sharing it here with you because I imagine that many of you have also wondered if it is ok to come out of some kind of closet. It really can take courage to be who we are! But it’s necessary. Especially now. As you give yourself permission to BE who you are, on an energetic level that permission radiates out to others. You model that it is safe. (And if you do it with a smile on occasion, folks will see how much fun you are having too!) Maybe you have a passion to play music (even though a grade 3 teacher told you to stick to the tambourine). Or perhaps one day you would like to run in a triathlon (even though you were the kid who never got chose by the jocks at camp or in school for the cool kids’ team). No matter what your secret dream is (provided of course it does harm to no one.. including yourself)… LIVE FEARLESSLY and DARE TO DO IT. Have the courage to be YOU! It may feel a bit scary at times, but ooooohhhhh what a ride!!
