FROM THE ETHERS
It has been a week. I’m sure most of you have felt the energy. We’re in post-shadow Mercury Retrograde and the full moon is today. The energy was so out there I didn’t do readings in my Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp office for two days. I went to the beach one day. I’m not crazy enough to put my feet in the water yet, but it felt good to be there, download the energy.
I finally settled in on Friday to write my story for a local newspaper. It felt good to get it done. I called my older sister later that night. We caught up on things and talked about old times. You know those conversations, remember when? Some good times and not so good times, all the times shaped me to who I am today, same as your times shaped you. It’s been a journey for all of us – some awake, some not, all exactly where we are supposed to be. It felt good to remember times with my sister. We did laugh a lot.
And then synchronicity stepped in. My best friend from the neighborhood all through grade school popped up to chat. She reached out to let me know that she thought another neighborhood friend had graduated to the higher side of life. Isn’t it interesting how death (and rebirth) brings people together?
Backstory: When I saw the short death notice my friend sent me, it made me think of my dad and how he used to read the obituaries in the newspaper every single day. As if to see how much longer he might have or to just remember long ago friends he hadn’t seen in a while.
My friend and I continued chatting. We caught up about other neighborhood friends and then made tentative plans to meet for lunch. She and her husband are ‘snowbirds’ and this is their first winter here. It will be nice to see them again. It has been quite a few years.
Maybe it’s time for you to connect with childhood friends or other family members to reminisce about the old times and maybe make some new times to remember.
I’ll be chatting with my great nephew on Sunday night. It will be our first time ever to meet. He will be 5 years old and I am so excited. My sister says he’s a little chatterbox. Good times!
Peace, Joy, Love and Light
