"Possibly the Most Interesting Woman in the World"

Molly, Lakshmi, Saint Hildegard and Dr. Strange

    I did not intend to write my second blog so quickly, but I was pressed to write some more on fears and limiting beliefs. I had done my Wednesday Live@3 show and told a story about Molly.

    Molly is the dog next door. She spends most of her day on the side of her owner’s house locked in a dog run. My back fence is my neighbors side fence, so we see a lot of Molly peering through the fence when we are on the patio. She’s a big yellow lab. Duke is my little Silver Schnauzer and then my son has Brody a French Bulldog with the personality of Stitch 626.

Throughout the day there would be meeting of the dogs at a particular point of fencing. They all would bark, play and run along the fence line. Duke has chewed up the railing of the fence like a termite. On Molly’s side of the fence she has scratched and pawed so much at two pickets that they have deteriorated. Molly also has pushed on the fencing so much that those two pickets had become loose.

I knew that it was a matter of time before the dogs realized they were loose and that they could actually have contact with one another. About a week ago Brody was able to push the picket forward and peek his head through. Molly would do the same. Duke is reluctant to put his head in the picket opening, but would sniff Molly’s snout.

A few days after these dogs made contact, it got a little more exciting to watch. Molly was actually trying to put her paws through that hole. It took a few more days but Molly realized that she wasn’t limited by her fears and beliefs - she was in our backyard. She had finally broken on through to the other side.

So that’s a little anecdotal story on fears and limiting beliefs. What fence pickets (or fears) can you break through and discover that only you have limited yourself with your beliefs?

Lakshmi is a goddess that is associated with Buddhism, Hinduism as well as other religious and spiritual practices. I came upon her in Doreen Virtue’s book “Archangels and Ascended Masters” just before my weekly facebook live show “Wednesday’s Live@3”. Lakshmi’s purpose is to help people find careers that will fill us with a sense of completeness and satisfaction. Lakshmi’s intent is to basically connect us with our life purpose.

I have only recently found the beginning of the path to my life purpose. The path is before me and I have a lot to learn and practice. I am supposed to be an author, musician and a spiritual healer.

I have had many reservations about becoming a spiritual healer. What does that mean, right? It’s a calling from God to help others. If God is calling me to do this work shouldn’t I do it for free? I struggled with that for a while. I have never seen myself as a person that had a drive for money and riches. I have always been interested in digging deep into things that are mystical, spiritual and are not monetarily attained.

I always wanted and desired to be financial stable and secure with a roof over my head, bills paid, functioning electricity, gas, plumbing and surrounded by loving people. I have been blessed - I have been provided for. Luxuries are nice and very much appreciated as well, but they are not necessity. I am grateful for what I have and what is given to me.

I came across the spiritual law of reciprocity. I more freely accept the fact that I would have to charge for my services, because give and take would be out of balance.

There has been so much involved in making this decision to take this path. Am I good enough to serve this calling? Apparently, God thinks so. Is my heart and head pure enough and in the right place to help others? What are my motives? What is my agenda?

This is where Dr. Strange comes into this where he is faced with exercising his “free will” to choose the path he wanted to take. It was still huge and intimating calling. Who wants to disappoint God? I know God and he wants me to exercise my “free will” and choose for myself what path I want to take. I had options and other paths to take. I have chosen the path to become a healer. I have a lot of standards and parameters of my practice to work out. I do know that if when I heal that it should always be guided and directed by “God’s will” and the “free will” of the person that I am working with. More importantly MY "will" and "ego" should not be a part of working with others in this capacity.

That leads me to the words “healer” and “healing” - I have issues with these terms. “Spiritual healing” is not a cure all, therefore “healer” seems to be inappropriate term to use. Not only that, but the fact that it is truly the “person being healed” in all circumstances is the true “healer”. I view a Spiritual healer as an energy mover that assists people to remove negativity and make space for the positive. And Spiritual healing is never a stand alone method of becoming well. Spiritual healing is to be used in conjunction with as a companion to modern medicine.

Finally my most recent interest has been Saint Hildegard. To me she represents belief. To believe in oneself. She is a true visionary and a strong female power for her time. She was an author, a musician and a spiritual healer. Hmm? Who does that sound like? Anybody you know?

    So at the end of the day we each have the ability to heal ourselves by breaking through our fears and limiting beliefs. We all have the ability to exercise our “free will” to guide us to the career or life that we want. We must make the decision to do so and once we do we must continue to believe in what we are doing and feel rewarded for it. If you always see life as the glass half empty that is your belief and therefore that is what you will receive.
