Let life meet you

Looking back on so many of the strange and surprising lessons of last year—learning I had not consciously called in but which came to me loud and clear anyway—I see how few of my external 2019 “goals” turned out because my energy took a sharp turn inward at the start of summer. Just when the...

Leveling up you gratitude practice

There truly is something magical about gratitude practice. Years ago I survived a particularly bleak period in grad school just by writing down one positive thing I experienced every day for 30 days. Some days I really had to reach for that thing. I am most humbled by the entry noting that somebody ...

What do you do with worry?

Here’s an interesting exercise from the Akashic Records that came through last fall when some folks started talking to me about managing anxiety. I held back from sharing it more widely because the timing didn’t feel right, but now with the trees talking about worry and fear, the timing feels be...

What comes after ambition

You might recall how I’ve been sitting with the question “What comes after ambition?” At the time of asking, I honestly had no idea. I was simply befuddled by its absence and wondering at my so-called indifference to all the things that used to preoccupy me, some of which I was happy to lose, ...

Roominess

I’ve been sitting with a bit of a mystery this week, where words / images / feelings related to “cocoon” or “birth canal” will pop into my consciousness during meditation or daily life, as if I needed reminding that I’m in a hermit phase. I go into these phases periodically, but there’...

Attachment

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I’m gripped by the drama of my tomato patch. I’ve been watching this dynamic between hornworm and braconid wasp eggs all summer and it only hit me today that there is a connection to my Akashic Records work of late. Sometimes in my practice I rece...

Who feels the love?

Someone asked me for an Akashic Records reading on a relationship recently and at the very start, when I sent the other person’s name out into the akash, nothing pinged back. As a novice reader this used to freak me out, but I eventually learned that this simply meant we were running the less inte...

Ask to see your light

As I was working through my “stuff” a few years ago, I would periodically ask to see my Shadow. It’s a good skill to hone, being a shadow whisperer. As with feral cats, the shadow must be coaxed persistently yet gently. It always appears of my asking, but in its own timing. And no matter [&hel...
The more I know, the more I don’t know20190512100729

The more I know, the more I don’t know

Here’s another paradox that started rearing its head in grad school. Back then it was dispiriting. It was more like, “The more I learn, the more my ignorance becomes apparent to me.” I was trying to fill myself up with knowledge because not knowing felt like the worst thing in the world. I fel...

Akashic Learning 27: Vague questions

Yesterday I mentioned some of the challenges that arise when a client’s verbal unloading (which is distinct from an energetic unburdening) returns a sense of clutter or staleness from their Akashic Records: a sign they are stuck in confusion and old patterns. It’s more unusual, but the o...
