When we are seeking answers, the one thing that a lot of us will do is turn to nature for those answers, and some of us will turn to others, but, for the most part, we should be turning to our own past for those answers, looking only to find those answers nestled in the memories which create the patterns we choose and live as our lives.
Humans…we are a very funny lot in that we will seek our answers to our innermost turmoils via the vehicle called “other people.”
We will, out of habit, need, laziness, anything, really, seek out that which we are looking for from other people. We will do anything at all that we have to do in order to instantaneously gratify whatever it is within us that we cannot also bother to look further for within us, to find the only answers that will be the correct answers.
This is based on trust, this inclination we have toward trusting the instincts of others far and longer before we will trust our own selves to not only make it so that we can deal with our lives, but also so that we can figure some stuff out regarding where it is in our lives that we need to be. Where it is that we need to be is always and only up to us. No one ever gave us a map, and no one ever gives us any directions – this life thing is all we are given, and it is a lot.
It is a lot
It is not an easy thing to deal with for the most part.
There are a lot of people who are also professional weirdos who cannot deal with it, and this writing is meant for those of us who work in the weirdness to remember a few things. One of those few things is that we are meant in this lifetime to be the guides to others in regards to what it is within their lives that they can, themselves, and without further help that is not warranted, without further help that anyone would feel needful of due to human laziness, and without all of the pomp and circumstance involved with any one of us becoming a drama queen and getting people to agree with us about things that would more likely cause the world to think that we are somewhat lazy in the care and feeding of our very own lives.
We are the Sherpas, so to speak, and as such it is our responsibility to teach others how to navigate life when they feel lost or confused because of the dizzying effects of every little thing that we are dealt on a daily basis.
Yet, even the Sherpas in life need help sometimes.
It’s like this
Let’s think about something that I think about all of the time – music and musicians, with our paying particular respect to the instrument known as the electric guitar.
I know for sure that it takes a lot of patience in order to learn how to play this instrument. I know that just like anything else, there is not only the patience involved in learning and practicing, there is also a whole lot of learning and practicing all of the other things entailed in playing the electric guitar. One has to have a pretty good grasp of sound and of tone, must have a pretty good idea of what musical notes are, and hell yes it is always a good idea to know how to read music. All of this entails the need for skills in not just the playing of but also the upkeep of a musical instrument.
Practicing takes time, and in order to be good at anything, it takes time and patience.
In the same manner, those of us whose livelihood is created via means not typical need to remember that, just like a guitarist will follow a certain pattern of playing, so, too, must we all. A guitarist’s fingers, if you have never really bothered to watch the way that any one of them will play, follow a pattern and it is a pattern that is not like that of other guitarist’s. The riffs they create come from somewhere very deep within them, much like the patterns my feet will follow when I choreograph a hula. There are no two hulas that are alike, and no two dancers who will dance that same choreography the same way – it is their own, even as the choreography is not. Just like the dancer’s expression of the dance is not the same as any other dancer’s will be, and just like the way one guitarist will play a tune written by someone else, the way that it is played by the guitarist will not be the same way another guitarist‘s rendition of that music will be.
This same thing is also evident in the manner which every other artisan of any craft at all will go about the pattern of their own life and all of the areas within that life.
You see, everything in life is responsible for creating the patterns within that life, meaning that we, not only as workers in the weird, but also as human beings, have an actual “thing” that we can follow in terms of how we will go about reading anything at all for anyone else. If we would bother to ask people questions, they would know, first of all, that there is no one on this planet who can accurately tell anyone else’s future. In terms of reading the future, each and all of us can only read the energies of the patterns in a person’s life and go from there.
There will be a few people who will say that I am wrong, that there are indeed people who can read the future, but just because that is the truth (yes, I can read the future too…so can you…keep reading…), what is also the truth is that while you might be able to read anyone’s future at all, the bottom line is that you really, even as someone who is psychic, cannot pinpoint the time of that future event.
If you are not also using the things that you, as the reader, normally understand as your own symbol for whatever it is that the person in front of you or on the phone has brought to you, you are not doing either one of you any favors by having forgotten one thing – you are only as good as how willing you are to be incorrect as you are confident in your abilities that you are correct. Reread that last thing and take it all in because it is the very truth. This is, that part where you are too confident, where you can take refuge in the idea that you can come very close to being very close to absolute correctness in taking the time to read the patterns in a person’s life.
I understand…I get it….the majority of the people who you read for are strangers and might well be those sort of people who will not believe you or your gifts as being real until you prove it by telling a fortune for them. There is nothing more insulting than being told that you are not good until you can prove it. The way that you deal with this is remember that the person who you are dealing with is also someone who might not have had to go to someone like you until now, when they are done with doing things in the manner that someone else told them to.
You, as the reader or coach should already be thinking of the questions you will ask them, the ones that will have them think for a moment prior to their answering things for you, and the reason that you would ask the questions is so that you can get a better grasp of the patterns that their lives have run through during the course of their lives and NOT have to take just a “guess” at things.
You would not be the first worker in the light who would ask questions, and anyone who is working as such would also be very wise in telling people that while you are gifted as you are, that you are still human and that since you are still human that you are prone to human fault and frailties, and that you are going to make it known to them that just because you are gifted it does not mean that you are always going to be 100% accurate.
This is the reason for the questions and why you must ask a few – so that you can find out, through their words, the theme of their lives thus far and more, the lesson through knowing what is the theme, which can also be thought of as the karmic energy that must be seen to in order so that they can also know not only where their lives will go next, but how they can differently handle whatever comes their way.
Recognizing your own patterns will ultimately help you recognize other peoples’ patterns before they even tell you their story
Over time, I have become remarkably adept at reading the patterns in the lives of the people who I serve and it is because I have been studying myself all these years, with particular attention having been paid to the last 18 months.
Self- study is the thing that a lot of workers in the light figure out when they also figure out that they are meant to stay in the jobs they have, but that the reason they are there isn’t the reason that they thought they were there in the beginning. The reason that we are where we are at any given time is not an accident – it is because there is something that is a pressing issue in our lives and one that we have to dearly ponder if we should expect to learn anything from it and yes, ply it to our trade.
Those closest to me know that every experience that I call “mine” is eventually seen as a study, seen as something that later on, I will be able to use in my practice as a light worker. When I happened upon the person who I call “the Maestro,” I knew going in that ultimately, the end result would be what it needed to be, not only for me to learn what I would need to learn form him and at that initial point, but also because he would need to learn something from me, no matter what happened.
What happened is nothing short of beautiful, and that is putting it very mildly.
For the last year I have made it a point to study my patterns, the Maestro’s patterns, my two best girlfriends’ patterns, my parents’ patterns, my kids’ patterns, and even their dad’s patterns. I would not know to study their patterns if I had not also chosen, last January, to study my own patterns.
Without my own patterns, I might not have realized, after the fact, that I was meant to happen upon the Maestro’s life at the time that I did, might not have realized that Dannie has worked to this point for the one thing that she wants the most (but did not realize it until she and I uncovered it this morning during a phone call…of course, there still is the free will thing happening, but, my Gator knows that I am behind her every decision, no matter what).
I don’t have to go on and on about the things that I have learned. The only thing that I have to tell you all is that in having paid attention to the patterns in the lives of those who are closest to me and who mean the very most to me, I am better able to see, not only where I fit into their lives, but also where they fit into mine. Included in all of this is the ability to sense things faster and the sharpness that is needed by any person who, like me, chooses to use their tangible talents (writing and dancing) to help others with their intangible life stuff (emotional and spiritual blocks and issues which visit us all).
I have learned when it is that they will each and all go through a lesson, have learned when it is that they, themselves, have exacted the lesson, and most of all, I have also learned, through watching all of their patterns and my patterns and how those patterns interact with each other, when it is that I am able to say something to them each about what they are learning, and more importantly, when I am NOT able, or more appropriately, allowed, by means of Spirit and Karma, to say anything to any of them about what they are learning until after the lesson has been learned or at least presented to them in a manner which prompts them to ask me why they are learning what they are learning right at this time.
If we are to be anything near being as good as we care to be in our trades, then like a guitarist will practice the intricacies of the sounds and notes they create which ultimately produce a song, so, too, is it very important that those whose livelihoods are had via doing work in the weird begin to study the patterns of their own lives so that we can also study the patterns of the lives of those who we help. We can find things out by going backwards to the past, for nothing more than to find out what happened back there that would also be happening now, maybe not with the same people, but surely the same energies surrounding at least one of them.
Truly, in many instances in all of our lives, it is the past that was ours that will tell us the future by helping us to remember the importance of Now. Now is important in relation to what is to happen in the future for us. Our pasts help us to recall the things that hindered or helped us the very most and will allow us to be more aware of what to do and what NOT to do so as to bring about the positive changes needed in order to grow.
It is the reason that, more than most teachers of the weirdness will, this teacher will always make sure that her students never forget where they came from, because where they came from is also ultimately where they need to be, not in the tangible manner, but in the manner that is understanding why it is that who we are has been shaped by who we were in the past, and in that past, there are patterns which created the Now.
Paying attention to our patterns makes it so that we are also able to help others by teaching them that they can release the past, release the hurt, use the energies and the events which happened then and up to now, to create a beautiful future…
