Saturday evening I went to teach the third day of my 4-week Animal Communication course at the stables. My students were troupers, as I had us all go out into the pouring rain to communicate with one of the horses. It can be hard to keep your focus with cold rain and wind in your face and horses investigating your umbrella, but they all did amazingly well. It just shows that, although it is preferred, you don't need peace and quiet to do a good reading. It's good to test out your boundaries and see what you're really capable of. I often have to do animal communication readings while being licked in the face (by animals) or with the sound of animals going crazy in the background. I think this is where my experience as a mother of two toddlers comes in handy.
Sunday morning however, I was clearly feeling under the weather again. My back was aching, and my throat was feeling sore. I decided I would power through my day of phone readings, since I wasn't feeling too sick yet. This is typical me, to ignore signs that I should take it slow. I thought that since I did an audience reading just last week with the beginnings of a cold, I would be fine this time too.
I've been very busy doing readings lately. I typically need to take a few days break every few weeks, to refresh and rejuvenate, or else I hit a wall. I also need to get better at listening to how my body is feeling, and instead reschedule any sessions if I am not feeling well.
Taking care of yourself is incredibly important when you do this kind of work, because your body and your energy are your tools of the trade. All the information you get from energy when doing a reading is flowing through your energy and body. If they're not in good shape, it can be challenging to do this work.
This week I will try to take my healing a little more seriously. I hope you all have a wonderful healing week too.
