Someone recently asked me, “What’s the most common reason people come to see you?
Without thinking twice, I rattled off, “They’re at odds with someone in their lives (living, dead… or both) and they want resolution.” They want to understand what guidance is trying to tell them, so they can act accordingly and stop second guessing themselves.
That’s what they say out loud.
Inside their heart, they want to be free to change their mind. They want to remove their doubt or shame because they’re tired of feeling lost.
That’s ultimately what they want and what I hope to provide; the ability to know what to do with every moment of our time here on Earth. Because really, that’s all we have.
When someone dies, we reflect on times they had with them and how they made us feel. When I speak to those on the other side, they reflect on how their time was spent with others. In both cases, there’s often regret.
They wish they would have:
- Put down their cell phones more.
- Said how they really felt.
- Given attention those who matter most.
In our January group, our topic will be: TIME: How to Use It Wisely & Know When to Say No
With the holidays in full swing, consider this, “We actually harm others when we do things out of obligation.”
People often have agenda’s with us. It’s hard to recognize at first because we want to be open and kind. When this happens, we start playing out roles we think we have to play. We march to the beat of someone else’s drum and lose pace with our own.
It’s time for us to get clear about the TIME we put into things; how it’s spent and with whom? Who we chose to invest our time with is more important than ever. In the end, it’s all we have.
Having discernment is one thing. Yet in that discernment, we’re taught to make others wrong or to invoke drama in order to “get our way.” Carefully choosing our words and actions is skill each of us can sharpen.
You can always count on me to help you hone this skill because I practice it every day. And I believe ultimate happiness resides in those clear words and actions.
I also want to say, we’ve never been in a time where there’s so much distraction. Just a few years ago, we used clocks and watches to find the time.
Now, we’re given the option of checking emails, texts and Facebook while keeping track of the day. This ups our chances of separation from those we love. We can’t let technology widen the gap between hearts.
Let’s keep this conversation going.
Let’s keep this awareness growing.
Living a “no-regrets” life is worth it!
