Walking Between Two Worlds

Posted on September 19, 2010. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , , , , |

Have you ever been somewhere – for the first time even – and felt an overwhelming connection to the place?  Did you feel your heart swell and your Spirit soar simply from being there?  Did you experience an illogical sense of coming home, of being able to navigate streets with only minimal directions, of being comfortable even though you’ve never been there before?  I have – and that place is Salt Lake City, Utah.

To me, Salt Lake City is a place that fills me up and makes my heart sing.  It is a place filled with magic, discovery and awe.  It is a place that speaks to my Soul, and I love what it’s saying!

My love affair with SLC began a few years ago.  I first visited the city to exhibit at a huge scrapbooking expo.  Immediately, I was struck by the majestic vistas that surround the city.  Everywhere I looked, I saw the magnificent mountains flanking the valley in which SLC quietly sits.  The city itself is laid out on a grid of streets centered on the Temple of the Mormon Church – a beautiful piece of architecture replete with spires and towers reaching towards the heavens with an almost fairy-tale castle appearance.

In the years since my first visit to SLC, I’ve been blessed by the friendship of a very dear woman.  We share a bond and a friendship that transcends the boundaries of time, for certainly we’ve known each other before.  We’re here now together to support the discovery and exploration of an even greater aspect of ourselves.  We’re sharing this pivotal experience of awakening to our true natures, to our intimate connection to Source, to God.

It was in SLC that I experienced my first psychic reading with a man who has played another pivotal role in my relationship to SLC.  Ross is a gifted psychic, tarot card reader and life coach, and it is always a joy for me to see him, as we’ve done each time I return to this beloved place.  From the beginning, Ross supported my interest in my psychic inclinations, confirming my suspicions that I am “one of us,” as he put it.

My last two visits to SLC involved an 18+ hour drive each way.  Instead of being drained and tired by the endless hours behind the wheel, my spirit soared higher and higher the closer I got to SLC.  The terrain gradually became more mountainous the further west I drove.  It looked barren, but only to the casual observer.  On closer inspection, I began to see the wildlife that abounds in the open expanses of Wyoming.  Coyote, pronghorn antelope, even elk, roam freely over the open range.  Each glimpse of wildlife left me feeling like I’d been given a gift – a chance to share in the secrets held dear to Mother Earth.  And my spirit began to expand, just as the vista opened farther and farther until I felt like I was driving across the top of the world.  The magic had begun.

My latest visit to SLC held even more surprises and magic than I’d come to expect from each trip.  As always, my energy was high, my mood joyous.  Arriving at my friend’s house, I announced only half-jokingly, “Honey, I’m home!”  Though we’d not talked much over the past year, our friendship picked up right where we’d left it – the time-lapse was inconsequential.  She opens her home unconditionally to me, including me in her family as if I’ve always been a part of it – as indeed it feels I have.  She is but one part of my strong connection to this wondrous place.

The most amazing part of this trip will always feel magical to me.  Something inside me was ignited – a flame, a passion that has long lain dormant.  This passion burst forth and completely rocked my world.  If I thought I knew a passion for life before, it was pale in comparison to this newfound one!  I’m awed, humbled and amazed by the depth of this feeling.  And while it’s new, it is also familiar – like a part of me that has been locked away for years.

This experience colored all of the rest of my trip with even brighter lights and bolder colors – for surely now anything was truly possible!  What a gift!  And how fitting that it was SLC that offered it to me.

Added to the magic I’d already experienced on this trip were even more surprises as I listened to and participated in an audio training course during my drive home.  The audio course was on accessing the Akashic Records – vibrational records of each soul and its journey through all of time.  Even though part of my attention was occupied by driving, the rest of me was free to cross the boundaries of time and space to experience parts of myself from times long past.  I found answers to questions about horrible events in this lifetime and gained an understanding about integrating these lessons.  I found peace and forgiveness.

Eventually, I returned home, to this place I live and the family I love.  But nothing can ever be the same because my life has been touched, because I returned home a different person.  How does one touch the heavens and then again walk the earth?

So now I endeavor to integrate the magic I experienced in SLC into my everyday life – and I feel as if I’m walking between two worlds.  I still feel the power of this magical experience, this amazing trip to SLC.  I have only to close my eyes to once again relive the power of it all.  Part of me wants to stay there in the magic.  But then I open my eyes and I want to bring that magic into my everyday world.  Somehow I’ll find a way to do just that!

Sue,

Wonderful post. I could feel the expansion you experienced and delight in the connections you encountered.

Soul trips are necessary for us to expand beyond our current realities and demands. Soul work is bringing back the expansion and applying ourselves in a practical manner.

Lovely….ty

Sue,

That sounds like an incredible awakening and I hope it carry’s you far in the journey that you are on! I’m so grateful that our paths crossed the way they have; you’re a remarkable person and I appreciate all that you are and have graciously brought into my life!

Peace & Love,

I felt this way when I went to Switzerland. It was such a cool experience. Thanks for this blog, very heartfelt and nourishing!

Thea, Shelly and Kerry – thanks for your comments! This place is so special and important to me, it seemed like a good idea to try to capture the essence “on paper,” so to speak.

I appreciate the support, encouragement and kind words. Blessings to all of you, my friends!
