Let things be

Posted on January 20, 2015. Filed under: Spiritual Practice | Tags: , , , , , , , |

Can you feel it?  Are you too struggling to find your joy and happiness right now?  Do you feel like part of you has hunkered down and is now in hibernation?  Well, if that’s the case, I want you to know that you’re not alone!

My 2015 started out in the best possible way – connecting with amazing people, having phenomenal experiences, stepping into knowing what I want to leave behind in 2014 and what I want to invite into 2015.  But the first few weeks of this new year have felt all over the board.  Physically, I’ve already had two bouts with cold and flu.  Clearing?  Purging?  I think so – on many levels.  And now my body remains tired.  Overly tired despite getting plenty of sleep.

My mind wants to know what’s going on.  I want to ask myself what it is that I’m doing “wrong,” as if this is somehow wrong.  But I know better than that too.  I KNOW that we are all where we need to be, moving through everything we need to experience.  I trust that it’s all good and that whatever this is, it is happening for my highest good.I will let things be

So I’m left with just one thing:  BE GENTLE.  Those words keep coming to me.  Be gentle – when in the past I might berate myself for “still” being in this space after hours, days, now weeks.

I connect with the people who uplift and support me.  I talk to my friends, many who offer their insights into what they perceive is going on with me.  I balance and weigh their perceptions with what I believe to be true myself.  And underneath it all is the admonition to TRUST myself, to trust the process, my process.  What is right for me isn’t necessarily right for anyone else – but beating myself up definitely won’t make it any easier.

Sometimes the words I offer to my clients during readings are as much for me as they are for them.  Today I am reminded of words that I recently shared with a client – to get out of my own way and stop micro-managing things.  I DO trust that everything is working out.  Some days, the best thing is to just let them be.

I know that in a short time, things will have shifted sufficiently that I will feel completely differently.  So for right now, I vow to just let things be.

Metamorphosis

Posted on May 27, 2011. Filed under: Spiritual Awakening, Spiritual Practice | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Once again, my life has shown me how true it is that treasures rise up out of the ashes.  Through trials and tribulations we are transformed into truer and truer versions of ourselves – which I’m coming to believe is the whole point of our life experiences in the first place.

What on earth am I babbling about, you’re probably asking yourself.  And that would be a very valid question.  Please allow me to explain.

For the past six years, I’ve owned and operated my own scrapbooking business, almost single-handedly.  Certainly, I have had numerous people help me along the way, but the bottom line has been that the weight of the business fell on my shoulders.  Many of you have heard me jokingly refer to Sue in design, Sue in production, Sue in accounts receivable, Sue in shipping and Sue in customer service.  You get the idea.  Business owners wear many hats – and I’ve worn them all at some point or another.

On Monday, my website was taken down by the hosting company because it had been compromised by hackers who were now sending out phishing spam emails from it.  I seriously have no idea how one would accomplish this – but apparently computer hackers aren’t limited by my same lack of knowledge.  And ignorance of the process does not protect oneself from the outcome.  So Albums & Answers’ website was deleted.

*POOF*  With a few keystrokes, evidence of six years of my focus, time, energy and efforts disappeared.  While I’ve been slowly moving in this direction anyway, I was still caught off-guard by the overwhelming grief I felt when the site disappeared.  A myriad of emotions surfaced as I processed through the thoughts, consequences and ramifications of this ending.

Many of you are unaware of the new dream that has been forming and gathering momentum in the background of my running this scrapbook business.  Over the past couple years, I’ve also been pursuing my interest in spiritual growth and psychic development.  You can imagine my surprise as I came to realize they were one in the same pursuits.

In typical Sue fashion, wanting to share what I’m learning and to help people to see life as the amazing adventure that I now recognize it to be, a new business idea began to take shape.  And while I’m saddened at the ending of Albums & Answers, I again see how endings are just the beginning of something new.  So I proudly introduce you to Soul Speaking – my personal growth business to help connect you to your authentic self.

Over the past few years, my understanding of “truth” has undergone a huge transformation.  Truth has come to represent nothing more than those things that align us with our authentic selves.  One person’s truth is not necessarily the same as another’s.  So how do we discern our own truth amid all of the “stories” we’ve been told all of our lives?  The answer is surprisingly simple (not easy, but simple):  we know our truth by how it feels.  When we feel joy, love, excitement, bliss and those types of feelings, we are experiencing those delicious moments of connection to our authentic self, to our Source, to God.

The goal, then, to live in connection with our authentic self can be summed up by a few short words:  Follow your bliss.  It is my goal with Soul Speaking to help you know your Self, embrace your Life and live your Joy.  To accomplish that goal, I now offer several services.

Joy Coaching provides on-going (ideally weekly) support to examine the choices you’re currently making which are shaping your current reality.  By accepting responsibility for everything that shows up in your life, you now have the power to change those things that you don’t like.  Together we find ways to  move your closer and closer to a life filled with joy and bliss.

Reiki Healing, an ancient form of energy healing, helps to restore the natural flow of energy through your body and creates a state of deep relaxation which promotes healing and relieves stress.  Ideally, reiki is performed in person by the practitioner laying their hands on a fully clothed client who is laying on a massage table.  However, reiki can also be sent long-distance as energy is not bound by spatial constraints.  A reiki session leaves the client feeling deeply relaxed, promoting our natural state of well-being.

I also offer Akashic Record Readings to help gain perspective on your life by accessing the vibrational (Akashic) record of your soul’s journey through all of time.  These records contain wisdom and guidance from the broader knowing of our soul.  This broader perspective can give us practical insight into our daily lives that we often miss while we’re embroiled in our personal dramas.

Soul Speaking is about giving voice to the spirit within you, connecting you to the wisdom and guidance of that inner spirit.  Life truly is a magnificent adventure.  Each moment holds the potential for joy.  The choice is ours.  What will you choose?

Contact Sue at sue@soulspeaking.net for more information on any of these services.  Limited appointments are available through June.  What are YOU waiting for to start living a life filled with joy?!

Changes

Posted on January 16, 2011. Filed under: Spiritual Awakening | Tags: , , , |

Change – are we ever without it? Whether we recognize it or not, our Universe is in constant motion, consequently, in constant change. Sometimes the changes are subtle, sometimes not. Sometimes they’re internal, and sometimes they’re external. But however life is proceeding, change is the one constant we can rely on.

2011 brings us a renewed opportunity to focus on the changes we’d LIKE to witness. Something about new beginnings seems to foster a renewed interest in starting over – THIS will be the year to lose that extra weight, to finally start writing that book, to take that trip – just because.

For me, 2011 will be about walking even more boldly onto this path of spiritual growth and service. I will embrace the trinity of Mind, Body and Soul – equally honoring all those parts of myself. I will UNCONDITIONALLY TRUST myself, my intuition and my gifts, as I’ve grown to unconditionally trust the Universe to support me. I will ALLOW and RELEASE those things which no longer serve me on this journey, even when I don’t understand what I’m releasing. I will appreciate my intellect without getting stuck in it. I will believe that I AM WORTHY of these spiritual gifts, and I will willingly offer my service to the world. I ACCEPT who I am. I ACCEPT my WORTHINESS. I ACCEPT all that Life brings my way – the pain, the learning, the joy, the amazing people and the wonderful experiences. I AM WORTHY OF IT ALL!

Yep, 2011 is going to be about stepping even more fully into ME! It’s going to be a phenomenal journey. Where is 2011 going to take you??
