Moonlight beams down

Softening hard edges

And clean lines

Mystery rules the night

 

The sky

Alive

With its own brand of light

Offers solace

In which to release

The harsher realities of the day

 

Gazing out over the ocean

The full moon

A jewel among the stars

Invites reflection

Offers comfort

At a time when I feel so alone

 

Why am I here?

I ask

Why is this so hard?

What happened

To all those dreams

That once drew me forth?

 

Like art

On an enchanted canvas

Stars twinkle in reply

I see my questions

Are small matters

In the big scheme of things

 

The answers lie

In this moment

In witnessing the magnificence

In holding this holy moment

Communion with the sky

In not only eyes and mind

But Heart and Soul

 

Life is a mystery

Living the mystery

With open Heart and Mind

Offers magic

Unseen

When we think

We already know

One Size Never Fit All

This is not a ‘one size fits all’ world. Human beings are wired to be unique. The better we know ourselves, the more we realize that what works for others does not and will not ever work for us. You are here to express something specific by way of your Presence and Creative Self Expression. All the wisdom tools in the world are no replacement for self awareness and conscious interaction with your environment.

As the famous quote from Goethe says, As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live. Trust is an inside job. It develops over time and comes from life experience and awareness. The better we know ourselves, the more easily we can find our way.

I was rewriting the About page of this site, today, again… Why is it so difficult to say what I do in my work with clients? Maybe because each session truly is unique. I show up never really knowing what we will be covering or where it will take us. I have learned to do this over many years. I used to have a pretty heavy and specific agenda for how a reading was supposed to look and sound. People are more complicated than that, though. Some need a lot of information. Some just need to be seen and heard. Others are undergoing a challenging life transition and are looking for tools to help them get through it.

When I show up with my heart open and willing to assist in the way that is of greatest service to the client, amazing things can happen. We have space in which to explore the most valuable direction to go in our time together. Breakthroughs occur; sometimes breakdowns happen, that open the emotional floodgates to reveal answers they could not see before.

I have had some excellent readings in my time, from gifted psychics and healers. The ones that served me best went at the speed and intensity I was ready for and offered information I could use. It took me a long time to get to the point where I had the experience and information I needed, to trust myself. And it was well worth everything it took to get here.

Developing a relationship with the inner self opens the doors to a much richer and rewarding life. Trust begins to occur, organically, once we establish that connection.

Love, always,

Jodi


Sacred G and The Way of the Heart

I wrote the first passage in October 2008 on a call with a group of women writers with whom I have written, off and on, for many years.

My heart has taken command of my life, of late. After years of being ignored and pushed aside like a nagging, insistent child by a mother who is too busy to listen to one more word, my heart is having her say.

“Stop!” she said. “If you don’t, I will. I’m hurting and sad and angry. Can you feel me now?”

Yes, I feel you. I get the message. It is time to come clean. It is time to let go of all the trappings and mindless, heartless distractions and come home. It is time to sit quietly with you and give you the reins. We both know I’ve always wanted to follow you.

Fear has had his reign; his day in the sun. Now is the time for the heart to shine.

At the time I wrote that, my heart was literally aching and I didn’t know why. I felt my life contracting around me and nothing I did seemed to make any difference. The tide was out, a major cycle in my life was completing and I had no clue how to make it different than it was. Something in me knew though, that my desire to feel more vital and alive would somehow prevail and I would get to the other side. I was aware that a lot of the things I had been doing were not working for me anymore. I also knew that I was the only one who could change it. And since I didn’t know how to move forward I did the only thing I knew to do; I start letting go of the situations and things and ideas that I knew weren’t right for me anymore. I purged and cleaned and purged some more.

Fast forward to March 2009. Someone I know through an online group sent me a link to a site about Sacred Geometry called WISH FOR LOVE. (The WISH FOR LOVE–LOVE is an acronym for Laws Of Vibrational Energy–website has been replaced by the new CORY HERTER website.) I started watching videos of webinars and reading what I could find on the site that explained what it was about. I kept thinking, REALLY? Sacred Geometry can help change a person’s life? REALLY? I joined the WISH FOR LOVE online community and started meeting and reading about the experiences of others who had been using the Sacred G technology. I kept feeling drawn to learn more and experience the effects of using Sacred G for myself.

I started with a couple of cases of Sacred G posters and saw changes in my sleep and dreams immediately. Beyond that, I started to have insights about how to solve problems, my intuition was sharper and answers came more quickly. Before long, I had some undeniable experiences of my own. And my heart stopped aching. And I started to make remarkable discoveries about myself–what was true for me and who I am beyond all the stuff I have or haven’t done or been or had.

It has been almost eleven months since I was introduced to Sacred G and Cory Herter, the brilliant creator of Sacred G Technology. So much has happened in that time it feels like it’s been eleven lifetimes. In a good way. I’m happy to say that my heart does have her say today. I feel more vibrant and alive and truly myself than ever before. I have a phenomenal network of friends, creative projects and work I enjoy, my relationships with those I am closest to have improved and I am finally at home in my own body.

As I mentioned in a previous post, at the beginning of last year the message from my Inner Guidance was that 2009 would be The Year of Miracles. I can say without a doubt that it was indeed a miraculous year. And in 2010 it keeps getting better.

What is your heart telling you?
