Happy New Year! It is a time of opportunity, fun and amazing transformation. Last year feels like it had all the awkward growing pains for what is going to set sail this new decade.
I have had my own personal transformation. . . in the last 8 weeks, I lost my 90 year old father. He was such an inspiration to many and while I know that he is with my mom and many other great animal companions, relatives and friends, it is still fresh and painful. I so hear the pain in my clients voice as they call either about an animal that they recently lost or about to lose.
For some reason the holidays accentuate that, whether it is that we love memories around this type of year so the loss feels greater than say a random day in June or the mere fact that it is literally the darkest time of the year. No matter as to the origin of the pain, the pain is there and deserves attention – being brought to the light.
I’m also writing because on the otherside of the holidays, here in the new year, I don’t remember a time I felt more hopeful. There are so many exciting things in the wings that I will slowly reveal as they come to fruition.
For me – it is also a time of tranformation in my career. In the worst economy, I started Communication with all Life University and in March – I have my first graduating class. I’m blogging – I don’t even text regularly, yet I love this. Lots of other things are transforming before my eyes that are so positive, so amazing……the reason I’m writing this is I know it is for you as well. Sometimes we just can’t see it.
I found a video from my past – I used to be an actress for those that don’t know my history or haven’t read my book, “Communication with all Life”. I’m actually posting it because talk about a transformation!! The video below is just a fun reminder of the world I came from – acting!! I loved acting, I loved the whole world of it. I educated myself in the best possible situations, I knew all the right people and yet………well the video is great – it was my dream to act and yet I followed another big passion – animals and I don’t look back (except to view various productions I was in):
Then this life of being an Animal Communicator totally took over my life!! I’m happy to say that this is definitely the work I’m supposed to be doing. I have been busy since about the day I said I’d do it…..unlike life in my acting world. I will say I was always getting some sort of play, little film, etc. I always joked with my Dad that I finally got a steady job when I became a pet psychic.
Clearly I didn’t love the acting world enough to endure the actor’s lifestyle. Or there was a better divine plan for me. Either way – this work, this life has brought us together even if just through these words on a screen. My wish for you is that you follow your dream and find your divine plan!
Now my work and my lifestyle are congruant. I love that. On the days that I’m home doing phone sessions, I’m here with my own animals. If I go away from my home to talk to an animal – funny how that works, I’m with animals!
I know I’m very lucky and I want to take this time to thank all of my clients and students and even readers who are what make this life possible.
