Floundering in Deep Water-Is This You?

Floundering in Deep Water-Is This You?

Life preserver in deep water

Floundering and I need a life preserver

For the last four months I’ve been floundering, or at least that’s what it feels like. I’ve talked about my move to southern California, and the way my guides gave me several big pushes. I took a big step in the healer/teacher direction by signing up to do angel readings at a monthly psychic fair in Irvine, and a few more steps in the same direction, by volunteering to be on a new parenting advisory council at the school where the psychic fairs are held: School for Multidimensional Healing Arts and Sciences. My intention there is to teach some classes to parents of Indigo, Crystal and Rainbow children (the new generations of Lightworkers) about identifying them and supporting them as they grow. I even started a meetup.com group for dolphin and angel lovers in Orange County, so that I could connect with people who want to learn more about angels, who love dolphins and want to receive dolphin energy healing or dolphin reiki. I also found a new spiritual community, a church, where I can go and be with like-minded folks. It’s a Center for Spiritual Living, and the cool thing is that the pastor, Rev. Sandy, after losing a teenage daughter many years ago, started receiving angel messages from her. You may have heard the story on a TV documentary about angels. So this pastor and her family strongly believe in angels! They called their daughter’s story Tara’s Angel. I remember it well and was thrilled to find them! Going to church is a huge deal for me, as I’ve been pretty opposed to organized religions for a long time (recovering Catholic that I am).

Despite these steps in the right direction, and being in the flow, I feel like I’m not! This feeling comes from not making my own way financially (I’ve needed to ask for help-hard!). I have always worked, since I was 13. I’ve always felt the need to work full time, to have a job as a source of income. But now I’m being asked to re-evaluate that idea, that need. I’ve had dreams of being my own boss, working for myself, and played with it as a part-time possibility, doing angel readings and healings for several years on the side. Now that the prospect of supporting myself doing this full time is here, I feel stuck and afraid to step out into the deep! I’ve been working on this belief about needing to work for someone else for about a month now, first recognizing it, then deciding it’s OK to let it go, release it, and create a new paradigm for myself. I’ve done lots of research about locations, resources and people to help me network. And that’s as far as I get. Last night my guides repeated the same message they told me last month: that I can focus on just doing dolphin energy healing work, or dolphin reiki, on people here, people who come to the beach here because they love dolphins. This means finding a location, a healing center or spa where I can do this work, and attracting clients-which my dolphin guides say they will help me do. Once again I’m in a place where I’m being asked to step out into the deep water, and trust that I’m being supported. Big waves of fear come up as I write this.

Have you been here? Are you here now, with me, in the deep water? What are you being guided to do? Let’s ask for some huge life preservers! I’m praying for you, and for myself. I’m asking all of the unemployed angels to throw us life preservers, send their lifeboats and to support us out in the deep unknown. If we can just grab on, take a step into a lifeboat, place a life preserver around us, we can make it to shore safely. And then we can stand with our feet firmly on the land, and know that everything is going to be all right, that we are loved, supported and safe. And for trusting and taking that scary step, we receive an abundance of love, peace and magic. Let’s hold hands and help each other float instead of flounder. I have a feeling that the dolphins will be right there with us, keeping our heads above water.

Are You Ready?

Hello angels. Since I last wrote, we have all been through several changes I’m sure. At times it seemed we were stuck and going no where. At other times things sped up and we could hardly keep our heads above water, treading while we tried to figure out what was happening and where we were going next. For me, this was really personal. Last year, I was laid off from my daytime, contract job. I loved my work and I thought it would last as long as I wanted to work there. I was shocked when I heard the news, and not planning for it all. What I was planning to do was move, and continue to work remotely from my new home. The only part that I got right was moving! I had known for at least 2 years that my guides were calling me to southern California, to the beach, to be closer to the dolphins. Since I visited Laguna Beach for a workshop 2 years ago in June, I knew that Laguna Beach was my destination. I had some wonderful guidance from the dolphins while I was there, and I truly felt “in the flow”.

Penske truck and my Honda CR-V

Journey down the coast

In December, I packed up, filled up a Penske rental truck to overflowing, and with a friend at the wheel of the big truck, we headed south from Seattle, Washington. I wanted to drive along the coast for as long as we could, and it was a wonderful adventure, through Oregon and California.

 

Motel 6 Costa Mesa

Motel 6 Costa Mesa

After arriving in Orange County, I checked into a Motel 6 (pet-friendly by the way) and waited for signs on my next steps to take. I didn’t know where I would live or work. My guides told me to go to The Chakra Shack in Laguna Beach and get a reading, so I did. The reader mentioned some type of housesitting situation that would come up, and an idea of where I was to live. Well the housesitting opportunity came up just 3 days later! An old friend offered to let me stay at her house near the beach while it was on the market. I packed up right away and moved in, camping out there for 3 months while I navigated these big life changes.

When it was time to look for my own place to live, I had no luck getting any response from landlords in the neighborhoods I had chosen, in Costa Mesa. I thought it was a great little city, close to the beach, walkable and convenient, near lots of job possibilities. But every door I knocked on didn’t open. Lots of closed doors means “course correction”! So I asked my guides where they wanted me to live. And of course they told me the same thing I heard in my reading the day after I arrived! I started looking in this sprawling suburban city above the beach, and found an apartment the same day. (Note to self: remember to listen to guidance) I love my new place. It has all the details on my checklist, and even looks like some of the photos on my old vision boards. Isn’t that cool? My angels and guides knew “Exactly” what I wanted, right down to the crown moulding. Of course I was concerned about rent, money, income, etc. And it was time for another leap of faith.

There were several leaps of faith taken on this journey. 1. Packing up and leaving Seattle without a place to go, a new job or a home. 2. Arriving in California and staying at Motel 6 until I received guidance on next steps. 3. Trusting my angels and guides to choose my new city for me. 4. Income-where it’s coming from and how am I to support myself.

For months now, I’ve been applying for and interviewing for jobs like my old one, in web publishing. For months now, with no results. I started hearing whispers and getting nudges about changing what I want to do, and how I work. And I thought, maybe it’s possible to work full time doing what I love, helping my angelic soul tribe, and my dolphin pod-mates, with readings, angel healing, workshops, intuitive coaching and support. I have learned so much in just the last 6 months about trust, faith and intuition, that I want to share it with everyone, and tell you it all works!

If you are ready to transform your life in a big way or even a small one, I am here to support you. Let me guide you, connect you with your own guidance team, help you clear blocks and get out of your own way, so that you can step into your new life and be who you were always meant to be. I’m available for phone readings and clearings, email questions and even a new monthly angelic support circle by teleconference call. I have a new California phone number, but my email addresses stay the same. Please contact me if you have any questions or you are ready for change. I’m offering a new package special on readings/healings in blocks of 3 or 5. The details are on my website, and you can save over $160 by taking advantage of the package of 5.

I look forward to sharing more with you about my journey, and the ways we can accelerate your journey too!

Angel Blessings,
