I try not to have such long breaks from blogging, but sometimes life is more important than writing. Heresy! But truth. My son graduated from college (in 3 years!), so somehow that has made me busy. Not sure how that works.
This is the first post that I am going to link to Twitter AND Facebook. Most of my friends on Facebook have no idea that I do this, but it's time to put it out there - hopefully very subtly and without fanfare. I am a Medium, an Energy Reader, and Akashic Records Reader. Tah Dah!
After I retired from nursing, when friends would ask what I was doing, I could tell them I was writing. But when I quit writing to allow space for something I was really good at (and because I was actively talking to dead people) - I started saying I wasn't doing anything, which wasn't true. I was learning and practicing and doubting that this all was real, and being run over by the truth of what I was experiencing. I was afraid to tell people I was a Medium.
Somehow, it was easier to tell strangers, and so I started with that. I was pleasantly surprised by the reception I got. I don't know what I expected, but I got more kindness and interest than I let myself believe I would, and I am now comfortable and content with my weirdness. But some of my friends have no idea. So I'm ready for that to change.
The funny thing is - I doubt many of my friends will be surprised. I've always been a little "woo," and some have been the recipients of my "don't do that" admonitions. It's just exhausting to keep it straight who knows and who doesn't and who will be offended or horrified and who will think it's interesting. So - phew.
Feel free to ask questions, give me your opinion, or ignore this declaration altogether because it's not a big deal. I feel a little like Dobby. Hopefully, I won't look like him anytime soon.
