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


Venus Has Gone Retrograde and the Moon is on the Wane

Gemini Full Moon

Gemini Full Moon

2013 has been a year of tremendous change, the world over. Sometimes it is hard to grasp how quickly things can flip or completely transform. Much has come to light that was held in secrecy for decades. At the same time, amazing new information, technologies and developments have been revealed that offer tremendous promise, reminding us that we are moving through a time like no other. The more we can reconnect to our hearts and follow the guidance they offer, the more easily we will navigate these times.

The last full moon of 2013 lit up the night sky in the sign of Gemini on December 17th. At the Solstice, on December 21/2, Venus entered its retrograde phase, to travel backward in the sign of Capricorn for the entire month of January. Astrology allows us to see the natural cycles of life and their timing: conception, becoming, flowering, peaking, distributing, diminishing, dissolving and renewal. This waning of the moon and retrograde Venus both indicate that between now and the end of the year is prime time for considering what has value (Venus) in your life today, and consciously releasing anything that no longer fits or works for you. Whether there is an old habit you’ve been meaning to change, a relationship you’ve outgrown or a closet full of clothes that you just don’t wear anymore, the stars are aligned to support you in letting go so you can once more be wholeheartedly in the flow of your life.

Freedom, the freedom to be who we really are, comes only when we have let go of all the stuff that we are not. Many of us once gladly laid claim to labels and titles and identities and stuff and nonsense, believing they made us somehow more than we were without them. Today, we want to use our creativity and intelligence and do something that not only makes our hearts sing, but makes a real difference in the world.

Waking up to the fact that nothing outside ourselves can give us any value that we don’t already possess within us can be a challenge. Continuing to do things that we know are no longer right for us, however, can feel like death. So, if you’ve been feeling the urge to let some things go, there’s never been a better time than now. In lightening up now, you create a vacuum that allows you to attract something new that feels just right.

Wishing you all a peaceful late December and beautiful visions for a shiny New Year.

Love, Jodi

2009 ~The Year of Miracles

This article was written for my Light In Motion II newsletter, published January 14, 2009 and is cross-posted on my Random Acts of Truth and Beauty blog.

apophysis-090225-1-21A few days ago I was reading something that mentioned 2008 having been the Year of something or other. I wondered what 2009 would be the year of, and immediately heard, “2009 is The Year of Miracles”. Wow! And not a moment too soon, from the sounds of things, lately.

I had to smile at the thought of a year of miracles. I feel the Divine is already right there for us, awaiting our activation of the potentials before us. I see evidence of the miraculous in our election of Barack Obama, in the sudden plummeting of gas prices, and in the shift of energy in the past few weeks that has me feeling a new optimism about what is now possible. These are all potentials that are miraculous in the fact that they were once unexpected and have shifted reality remarkably. Though we may have hoped for them, none of us by force of will or determination could have created them without a little help from the unseen realms.

I don’t know about you, but I take very little for granted these days. When I see something that speaks to me I make a point of stopping to be with it and appreciate it for what it has to offer. Life itself is a series of miracles when I am present to them.

Miracles are really just realized potentials that we are unaware are possible until they occur. They are always love-based, inspiring and uplifting when we witness them. The miraculous is happening all the time. Our true nature is Divine. Humans are born with a natural ability to do many things that we have been taught to believe are miracles. It is just a matter of being present enough to notice, to see the beauty that is literally everywhere we look. More and more people are ready to Be the Change. And there are quite a few of us who are now embracing our lives whole-heartedly with a real Passion for what we are doing. Enough so that we are willing to step up to living and loving as exactly who we are.

If you would like to reconnect with, or discover your Passion, an Intuitive Astrology reading can help. This year promises to be filled with change for everyone. Self-awareness is empowering and allows you to consciously entertain the potentials before you and proactively make choices based on your preferences. The astrology chart offers a helpful guide to your own best timing and is an excellent tool for discovering the most effective strategies for accomplishing your desires. Insights that arise in a reading often reveal potentials and options that were not apparent before we sat down together.

For more information, or to schedule an Intuitive Astrology reading or Intuitive Consultation, see my website or send me an email.

May miracles abound in your New Year.
