FROM THE ETHERS
Hysterical! I have to say we could all use a good laugh each and every day.
Instead of going to the gym, which closed last week, I’m walking the hills of Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp, and let me tell you there are some brutal hills here. Afterward, I do my ab work, and continue to rotate exercises for arms, chest, back and legs.
I walk with a friend. I told her my Animal Totem workshop on Sunday was announced at Wednesday Night Message Service in the Camp. On the way home from service, I had a vision of a palmetto bug. We chuckled at the thought because we both know it means survivor. Once in my apartment and in the kitchen, a palmetto was shown to me again. Sure enough a palmetto crawled up through the drain. And I missed it. We laughed.
Backstory: It took me a while to realize the palmetto was one of my animal totems. I do live in Florida. Spirit showed me palmettos in the 3D world when I needed reassurance. For a three year period, I went through some health issues. The palmetto was always there for me. One time after a surgery, Spirit showed me a palmetto in a vision. I was thankful to see it there since there was no way I’d be able to catch up to one and squash it.
The other night I was grateful to see the little critter. Yes, everything will be OK. I worked diligently to clean off the countertop, hoping to find it. Of course, nowhere to be seen. Good thing my bedroom is on the other end of my apartment. LOL
Interestingly enough, because I am a Spiritualist, I believe everything will be OK. I will survive. We do not end here. There’s much more for us on the higher side of life.
Some of you are probably thinking yuck, a palmetto for an animal totem. Trust me I’ve been there. I have learned to love them. I posted on Facebook early this week what a visiting medium in the Camp recently said, “Everything comes from either Love or Fear.” Think about it. It’s true.
There was a time I feared palmettos. I thought they would fly into my natural curly hair and get stuck. LOL. I now realize that the palmetto is much more about Love than Fear. We are all survivors including those palmettos that have crossed my path.
Many Blessings of Peace and Love!
P.S. My workshop has been cancelled as well as Wednesday Night Message Service. Check cassadaga.org for more information.
