In my first post on this new site, I talked a little about how being a writer lead me to discover that I was a Medium.
I seem to get lots of clients who have successfully navigated the big goals of life - family, career, success in all its various forms, but who now search for a Purpose. I resonate with this searching because I did it not so long ago. And yet, I didn't put the path together until recently when friends and family started asking me how I found out about this Mediumship thing.
I knew I always had experiences - many of them frightening - so I "turned it off" for years. I knew that in 2013 I had to leave traditional medicine - I couldn't do it anymore. I knew that I loved writing and tried gallantly for six years to be a writer.
A moment of some clarity in 2016 led me to the realization that I had arrived at "average" after all those years of writing and that I wanted to be good at something, not just average.
So, I stopped writing and made space for something else. And I made space, and I held space (translation - didn't do anything this culture would call productive) for about a year.
But I knew that the thing I would be good at was out there - I just didn't know what it was. So I continued to hold space.
Even now, I don't remember what the push was - what the catalyst was that got me to see a Medium speak (Suzanne Giesemann) which in turn got me to go to a Mediumship Development group (Hillary Michaels).
As I look back, I realize that the last book I was working on was aided entirely by my connection to the two protagonists in my story. I was communicating with them. All the time. I even channeled them sometimes. It still took me over a year to identify with any conscious thought what I was doing.
And that is why I spent six years writing and learning to write - so that I could discover I was a Medium. Huh.
For those of you seeking purpose - you get to choose. Instead of looking at your search with the question, "What am I supposed to do?" ask instead, "What do I want to do?" I wanted to write, so I did. It lead me to the most stunning discovery of my life.
