answering questions from the comment on yesterdays post in here:
So, how did the interchage btw your spirit guides and victory go?
i thought it was good and fun and typical spirit guides there were times when after their answer my reply was “sorry.” they always have to be like that don’t they? my guides are not big on saying things in the gentlest possible ways. they are pretty direct and sometimes even wise in a wiseass kind of way. i am going to try to think of a good example but of course, i can’t remember specifics. whenever i go to the place i need to be to do this stuff and do it direct like that i can’t remember it well.
did she feel forced upon?
luckily for me victory does not seem to have felt like i opened my mouth and puked woowoo all over her. phew.
was victory open to it?
unbeknownst to me victory has a little woowoo in her history – just not so much her present. so this didn’t feel like a huge stretch into freakyville for her after all. one nice thing that has come out of all this, on my end, is feeling less compartmentalized in this relationship. i tend to have people fit into little sections of my life my “mommy” friends, my “woowoo” friends, my “ap” friends, and so on. victory was an “ap” friend and now she sees the woowoo me too. maybe this is all a part of the blogging experience for me in part. because i bring it all to the table with this blog in ways i usually don’t. and then, anyone can read it and meet the whole me. not just the part i would tend to present to them. i know victory reads the blog, so i know she has read the woowoo posts, which helped me be willing to try this. but enough about me, no one asked about me…
was what was said significantly diferent than what you had been saying??
i am not sure if the double questions marks was a typo or like a “hey i am really interested in this question here so i am putting in two questions marks!” to me, it read like the latter. in my experience, it felt like what was said was different. my “helping” victory had been much more focused on helping her stay positive about the chance to be the at home parent in the future. the spirits were encouraging her to stop being so afraid and to make major changes in her life right now. not necessarily ones that meant she would be the at home parent but to look larger.
also, she took the experience as a chance to ask more direct questions which, much as she may love my advice, she hasn’t done with me. so instead of just supporting there was a feeling of guiding going on. and, from my perspective…there was less “but” involved. when i have thrown ideas out to victory she has generally had a reason why my idea won’t work. a “but.” for some reason she didn’t want to talk to the spirits that way?
i invited victory to answer these same questions from her own perspective as well. so i am going to put her answer up her now. i am guessing it is of much more interest then my own.
“i did not feel at all forced upon! and i did feel that the replies were not from woowoo mama but just being relayed through her. i “think” i know her well enough to tell they were not hers. it was insightful and it also encouraged my to connect with my own guides. hopefully more is to come. i think we’re on to something here.”
there you have it. straight from victory’s mouth. or, fingers, which in the land of blog is basically mouth. right? and of course, she is short and sweet while i am all kinds of rambling on.
oh well, peace out from woowoo.
