I came back to my cousin Anna’s house to find that my last visit had yielded great results. Anna has quit her job that made her miserable. She is turning down job offers to do the same thing again and is searching for what she really wants to do. Jeff, her partner, has also seen the predictions I made in his reading start to come to fruition. His company is being closed and he too will soon be out of work. So they are sitting smack in the middle of breakdown and, to their credit, they are pretty happy about it. I’m happy for them because I know that good things are coming from this.
But it scares me a little. How much did I have to do with this? I did the reading and offered the advice, obviously Anna was ready to take the step because she listened and acted on it. But it still scares me. (Update 2013 – Being scared about this is another example of how I was still taking on responsibility for the world. Anna is an adult. She made her decision based on much more than just my reading. Her decision was never my responsibility, but I was clearly taking on at least part of that. Whew, I’m glad I’ve gotten over that one!)
On another note, I did another reading for Anna before I left, this time with the Fairy Oracle Cards. In it, we came to the point where Anna asked me about the symbology of the Sun. Conveniently, this was the symbol we worked with at SpiRaL this year and I had that information to offer her. I also had the bottle of consecration water that we were given when we left. I passed it along to her with instructions on how she could recreate the ritual of consecration that we did. I suggested that she start with a salt scrub. She remembered that a friend of hers had given her a salt scrub several years ago, but she was sure she had thrown it away. I decided that she hadn’t. Let me be clear here. Anna is the type of person who would remember if she had thrown something away. She probably did throw it away. But I decided it was there, and I overlaid my will on the universe. It was, in fact, there when she went to look for it. My first thought was what Ken always says to me when he pulls this stuff off – don’t look too close. My first job of almost instant physical manifestation. And I’m not even really wigged out by it. My normalization level has really increased over time. Whew. Of course, the obvious question is, now that I know I can do it, what will I choose to do with it? I’ll have to chew on that one.
