How is it almost the end of March? My birth month flew by, and seems to be going on, if not quite like a full-grown lion, at least like a cub. It’s rainy today, which is fantastic, and all the trees have burst into bloom in the past week. The crows left, too. Right after the snow last week. Which means it’s time to get another hummingbird feeder and some ant deterrent.
My first hire on retainer (how do you say that a bit more elegantly??) is going really, really well. The client is a cat with diabetes and some other issues. Bloodwork is looking good, and things that were really bad are much better now – this makes my heart sing. The great thing about retaining my services for a month is that we can tweak what the focus of the sessions are, even daily. We began focusing on one thing, and have since switched it up, including even helping calm him when he gets his meds (by needle – ouch). Today I’ll focus on something Cheri just found out, and we’ll see how it goes. I love this work so, so much, and really wish more people would find me so I can help them or their critters, too.
The hardest thing for me, to be honest, is to get online and see tweets or blog posts from people about issues they or their animals are dealing with, and trying very hard not to be that person that raises their hand and yells, Oooh, me, me! I can help!!! As many of you know, I really suck at holding back, though I’m trying harder to do so. Not because it feels unethical or anything like that, but I think when someone offers to help you out of the blue people tend to get wary and suspicious, and I can’t blame them. So I hold my breath and pray that those I’ve sent light to tell others so those in need can be helped.
I’ve been spending time reading quiet blogs, ones that are day-to-day living, and there’s a lot of joy and peace in that. The little things we miss in our attempt to sell ourselves, and everyone else doing the same thing. It’s a cacophony of overwhelm, to say the least. I bookmarked a bunch of these quiet blogs and check in every few days; it’s so calm and stress-free. My mantra of late is, “Too many forks, not enough spoons”, and to be honest, I haven’t checked my voicemail or email in days. They’re two more forks I just can’t deal with right now.
Anyway, I thought I’d check in and say Hi. Some may have noticed that I removed all social media links and deleted linktree, too. More forks that needed to go away. When your dream becomes something that causes you stress, you pull in the net and toss what’s not good for you. Then you can focus on what it is that makes your heart sing, what makes you want to pinch yourself and make sure you’re actually awake…and for me, that’s sending light.
With hope and love,
