most woowoo comes with a warning. when i learned how to communicate telepathically with animals the woman who was leading the workshop gave us a “code of ethics” to follow (when i taught i did the same). when i was learning how journey i was given several such warnings about using these practices in a smart ways – ways that fit into your life in reality. i remember distinctly when sandra ingerman said during a workshop “don’t drive and journey.” obviously, if you are doing something that requires all your attention in the here and now you shouldn’t be leaving your body and heading elsewhere.
recently it could be said that i have been trying to drive and journey. i kept a loose eye on the here and now and i traveled into the world of my computer, the internet, people i have never met in reality, with increasing frequency. and my driving got to be pretty bad. a loose eye does not make for good driving.
i am deeply embarrassed by it all. really, i should know better. i am a smart girl with a good head on my shoulders plus the help of all kind of seen and unseen friends. but i don’t feel very smart or good at anything right about now.
in the most difficult moments i call out to my spirits and i just ask for them to sit with me. in the fog, and pain and darkness, please don’t make me be all alone. please let me feel like i have some company. they always answer. they sit with me. and if i can focus outwardly enough i can sense that they love me and respect me and accept me just as i am – flawed, broken, breaking, senseless, damaged, lost, learning, a work in progress. those few seconds of relief can get me up off my bottom and back to the laundry folding, or the vacuuming, or to bouncing my very very very crabby sick baby.
and then next time i feel bad i eat a chocolate chip cookie. somehow, between the spirits and the cookies i am hoping to find some moments of okayness.
meanwhile, if anyone out there is listening please let me remind you not to journey while you drive. don’t float off into other worlds when you life is in this one. strike a healthy balance. follow a code of ethics. try not to get yourself into any nasty messes.
if you find yourself feeling lost and terrible call out to your guides and they will hold your hand and walk through the darkness with you. god bless them.
