Over the Last week

Just an update for everyone. I’ve done some readings over the last week, but haven’t been able to accommodate everyone. Its been a rather interesting time for me.

I got back from my trip to Phoenix and decided that I needed to try and fit everyone in ~ preferably all within a two week period.

I am thinking that the Universe had other plans for me. Last Friday, while at the barn I hurt my knee, quite badly actually. I was walking out of the barn, and someone tugged a hose that I was walking over and I went flying. Landing right on my knee. I spent three days just reading books on my recliner with my leg up. That was fine. I had bought a couple of books in Phoenix that I wanted to read anyway so it was nice to have a “forced” couple of days off to do just that.

Once my leg felt good enough to be able to sit at my PC, (on Sunday/Monday) I started to get back to some people about readings, doing what I could to book people in. I was well on my way to having some things booked when my PC got a virus. A very unusual occurrence for me because I have my PC set up like Fort Knox. I worked on it myself for a day, all day Monday, but just couldn’t get rid of it. The next morning I called my Anti-Virus provider and they helped clear everything up. Apparently there was something wrong with their software, a glitch that they are working on. I won’t mention them here, because I really like their product, have used it for years, and don’t want to give them any bad press. They were super helpful and had me back up and running quickly (once I got into an online chat with them).

Then we got to later in the day on Tuesday. We are going through a cold snap at the moment. Very cold. I don’t do well in the cold so I had been thinking that I would get a bunch of stuff (and phone readings), done through this week. I could stay home, work, avoid going to the barn where its freezing, and still feel like I was being productive. It was a great plan (or so I thought). That’s when the power started going off. I consider us very lucky because it didn’t go off and stay off for days or anything. Our house is staying reasonable warm, we haven’t had to pull out the generators and none of our food has spoiled. On Monday evening, we even just played board games as a family by flashlight which proved to be quite a bit of fun!

However, the power has been going off quite regularly for about 45 hours or so. So while trying to be productive, I’ve had the power go off in the middle of sending an email, in the middle of trying to get rid of a computer virus, in the middle of blog posts, phone calls, you name it. Pretty much everything I have “planned” to do over the last week or so has been completely shut down.

YOU THINK I WOULD LEARN!!! I’m not a big believer in coincidences. I’ve had lots of Angels around me for about a month too. I know they are there to help me through something, I just haven’t figured out what yet. Apparently though, it has very little to do with work. I say this, because every time I try to work something happens. I’m even saving this blog post every couple of sentences just in case the power goes out again ~ I don’t want to lose it all. I am sure if I write something that I’m not supposed to the power will go out and I’ll lose it anyway. 🙂

Another interesting thing is that I am not the only one who fell down last week. In less than a 24 hour period me, my mom, and my sister all took a dive. My sister first, the night before me (she lives in Alberta and I didn’t even know until yesterday that she fell), and my mom slipped on ice about 8 hours after I had my fall (she is okay too). I should also say that the three of us are VERY close.

I toyed with the idea that “stuff happens”, and that maybe it was a coincidence. However, we all ‘see things’, get ‘signs’ regularly, and none of us believe in coincidences. We decided that we would each meditate on it and see if anything came up.

In the meantime, I decided to just draw a Rune out of my Rune bag…not something I do very often, just once in a while on a whim. I drew “Perth”, the Rune of Initiation, reversed. I read what it said but wasn’t certain it applied so I just left it for a bit. A few hours later I decided that I’d pop onto this divination website I know of and see what it would say if I just drew a Rune there. The question I asked both times was “What is it that all three of us need to know, what were the ‘falls’ trying to tell us”.

Anyway, guess what? I got the exact same Rune, Reversed. This is what my Rune book says:

A counsel against expecting too much, or expecting in the ordinary way, for the old way has come to an end: You simply cannot repeat the old and not suffer. Reversed, this rune puts you on notice to call in your scattered energies and concentrate on your own life at this moment, your own requirements for growth. More important “Perth” counsels you not to focus on outcomes, not to bind yourself with the memory of past achievements; in so doing, you rob yourself of a true present, which is the only time in which self-change can be realized.
You may feel overwhelmed with exhaustion from meeting obstruction upon obstruction in your passage. Yet you always have a choice: you can see all the apparent negativity as “bad luck” or you an recognize it as an obstacle course, a challenge specific to the initiation you are presently undergoing. Then each setback, each humiliation, becomes a test of character. When your inner being is shifting and reforming on a deep level, patience, constancy and perseverance are called for. So stay centred, see the humor, and carry on regardless.

I think this is pretty cool. Seems to apply to this past week quite well. So here is where I stand. I am taking a few days off. Almost completely. Hopefully “almost” will be good enough. I do have some things that I need to do and I will take care of those. I have some people that I really need to email back because they’ve been waiting for a while (you know who you are). I will give it a shot, however I am not prepared to make any promises at this point.

I am going to Vegas at the beginning of December with a group of women from the barn. Its the National Rodeo Finals and I expect it will be a lot of fun. There’s only a week left in this month, so it could very well be after my return that I actually get readings booked. I give up trying to control it. I hand it over to God and my Angels to take care of, I am sure they will let me know when I’ve got the “all clear” to fit in some more readings. Whether its next week, or December, or January, all I know for certain, is that it will happen for me (and for you), if and when the time is right.

Thanks for reading, with love, Tamara

I got back from the “Celebrate Your Life” Conference in Phoenix yesterday.  I met some of the most amazing people.  One of the souls I had the pleasure to connect with was Shawn Gallaway.  Hearing him in person and feeling his energy was quite the experience!

I share one of his uplifting and inspiring songs here.  Give it a listen, open your heart and choose Love for yourself.
