I’m a person who has a deep love for Nature and animals (and people too) and long to connect with beings in all forms in a deep, authentic, soul to soul way. This desire has guided me to be an energy healer and animal communicator, something I truly love doing, but something that truly causes me to feel stressed and insecure like nothing else. The stress comes from feeling I have to “perform”, or be “very good” at delivering results for my clients.
My coaching call with Melody was a request to help me in both deepening that connection that I so desire, AND letting go of the stress that’s draining the joy (and connection) in this amazing work I’m blessed to do.
Well, she got me on quite a ride! She lead me gently (and more poignantly at times) to realize that both my requests came from one thing mainly, my focus on results and a goal to give my clients their healing. Although this may even seem right as we read it, it’s actually not. My focus on delivering what they want makes me feel like their life HAS to change because of what I do, and that’s never how it happens. They have to come to their own healing realizations for themselves and my job is to be the lighthouse that keeps shining and holding their light in my awareness, so they can rediscover and reconnect with it too. That’s how true healing occurs, for people of all species. 🙂
Melody made that very clear to me, and she also helped me realize that by me focusing on and following my FUN, I’d be much more in that place of alignment where I do receive the information that is perfect for my clients (and me) at that particular time, and that alignment is also what facilitates deeper and deeper states of connection and communication with Nature and all Consciousness. I realized, deeper than ever, that I don’t trust fun and think that work should imply “work”, aka, be hard. 🙂 Sounds silly because I do know better than that, but sometimes we need a lighthouse to hold our own light and reflect it back to us, and that’s what Melody did for me with this coaching call. I felt layers of constriction and resistance come up and be dissolved time and again during our call, and I knew, by the end of it, that a lot of little (and big) things had changed.
And I’d love to share what happened to confirm that knowing. 🙂
Shortly after our coaching call the thought crossed my mind “what would bring me the most satisfaction now?” and a specific book popped into my mind (from my favorite shaman author, Serge Kahili King). So I picked up that book, got comfy on my couch, and opened at random.
It got me to a chapter on telepathic communication (of course!) and after reading a bit, it went straight to animal communication. As I was reading the author’s experience with communicating with the wind, I felt inspired to open my balcony window and send love and appreciation for the beautiful warm air outside. I sent appreciation for the lovely warm smells, for the flower and grass smells, for the sounds of the birds that the air carried, and with this, a bird came to my balcony. 🙂
They come say hi on occasion, especially if I’m feeling happy and light, but they only stay for 10/20 seconds, and if they notice me or any movement, they leave. Not this one!
I had the balcony door open, so, with the wind, the curtains were flapping and moving all over the place. He stayed there. And when he started chirping, and then singing more elaborate songs, I knew he was there for me, a beautiful messenger from Nature to reaffirm what we’d talked about in the call. So I tried to keep my mind from projecting anything and just tuned into how he felt. And he felt so patient, calm and loving that I started crying. He truly was there for me, to show me the support that Nature is always giving me, and I just felt so blessed and loved!
He stayed probably for 3-5 minutes, and I even saw him fly away and come back to the same spot, facing my window, reinforcing the message of patience, persistence and support. That Nature is patient and supportive of me I have no doubt, so I also took the message to be patient and supportive of myself, and to know that the beauty of Nature and all that I so love is right here, always available to me.
Thank you SO MUCH for helping facilitate this shift in my perception, Melody. My love and appreciation for you and your work just went to another level. 😀 THANK YOU!
