So almost 20 yrs ago is the first I heard of the importance of this, a powerful time. I usually find to be in gratitude about all that has happened in 2016, addressing even those things that haven’t been as powerful or things that didn’t work out. It is important to be realistic and honest which helps in the manifesting process for the coming year not to re-do those things that weren’t in our best interest. Then the next part is putting down medicine(sage, flowers, candles, ceremony) what is it that you want to create for 2017. I will be doing a family & friend Sweat Lodge taking all this into prayers. I have a wonderful core group that we can be really honest and sincere about our progress in this spiritual world. I have been doing my work since 1975 so I have experienced the twists and turns of the challenges of our being responsible for our continued growth. Yes it is never done including being on the other side heaven does exists however we still have more to do. Being a medium since I was 13 when my girlfriend Jeannie Stone came to me after her passing, from leukemia. I didn’t tell anyone about it till I was 45 because in the old days I would have been on medication if i told how spirits or angels talked to me. So once I started working with people on a more intimate level I feel in deep gratitude. Eve Crane who was on KEST radio wanted me to have my own show, what she appreciated about me was how accessible I am, that has been a gift to my clients. However this week I have had a weird one 3 different clients/friends informed me either they are annoyed thinking we are friends not client, another has now graduated to friend is no longer doing session we have the impasse by his standard we are friends so he no-longer needs to pay me. He want to call at his convenience to chat. I also talked to a client that made major changes a rather long phone call wanting to approach let’s do more however with the we are friends card out I felt how inappropriate it would be to address it. I obviously don’t set strong enough boundary’s to let people know this friendly attitude is still coaching/spiritual advising even though my style is friendly. It actually makes me very sad that I take these folks into my inner world of spirit they disregard how intimate and deep this is for me. I offer ceremony to those that may-not be included in ritual, so my Kusrutam will include this miscommunication, Charlie Thom told me once with my prayers it might do well to live in the forest and do prayers that way. However that is not my Divine destiny being or getting out more is the other part of Kusrutam is now happening not knowing yet what that means. In my sessions my teacher clients know they are rising to new heights needing to jump off the diving board into the New however not have a clear definition of what that is yet……..so prayers will go into the unknown.
