My colleague Anna Blossom and I were to do a blogtalk radio show last Thursday, and despite both of us having had crazy days we decided to forge ahead. Well, our plan of radio had to switch to a Facebook live instead, but trying to get Anna to join the live with me became a disaster as her computer decided to all sorts of updates right then. Then as I was guiding everyone through a short meditation on the live, my internet decided to go on strike. So we naturally planned to try the next day, but it just wasn't working out then either. I originally decided to try again on my own the day after that, but I had a feeling I needed to conserve my energy for our upcoming audience reading event on Sunday. My old self would have stubbornly tried again, but I am luckily getting better at going with the flow of energy. We all go through cycles of energy, of creation and of rest. Fighting against those cycles just makes everything that much harder for yourself.
On Sunday, we had our audience reading. (I wrote about our last one here). This time we had Joshua-John DeLorenzo with us as well, so we were back to our Spirit-Squad trio. Last time we did an event at Healing Waters and Sacred spaces we had 31 people, and because the space is so small, it got pretty stuffy and a little claustrophobic. So this time we decided to cap our ticket sales to just 25 people. Somehow 28 people managed to buy tickets before I could stop it, and then when we got to our event, an additional 3 people showed up without having pre-purchased tickets, so we ended up with exactly 31 people again.
I love doing audience readings. With a big group like this, we don't get to everyone unfortunately, but it's still a great low-cost way to experience mediumship for those who can't afford a full reading or are just curious about it. We get to demonstrate how mediumship works, and demonstrate that our loved ones are still around and continue to love us from the other side.
Before an audience reading, we generally like to meditate, to help us get centered and ready to connect to the other side. It can take a lot of energy to do readings like this, so I also like to make sure that I eat something first. On the suggestion from Joshua-John, I have also started to drink some caffeine before events, because it helps raise my energy more. I notice a big difference since starting to do this. (I wouldn't necessarily recommend this if you are prone to anxiety though.) I also like to smudge with sage and palo santo. It helps clear the energy and prepares the space.
The event went great, and I am grateful that so many people come out to see us each time. Afterwards, I got a bite to eat with Anna. After a big group reading I am always hungry, even if I ate right before the event. I also will almost always get a low back ache, and physically feel quite tired.
Our next event will be on December 3rd, and you can pre-purchase tickets here. This time it will be just Joshua-John and myself. We are also continuing our plans of doing more blogtalk radio shows with free readings. We have planned our next attempt to be on December 10th, so keep a look out for that. I will post the link on my facebook page a little closer to the date.
I hope you all have a lovely week of thanks-giving and fun!
