I forgot how difficult it can be to be ultra psychic when your world’s topsy-turvy! This past week we were on vacation, in a cabin on a beautiful, peaceful lake in gorgeous, green Michigan. We made dinner on the grill and played in the water and read a lot, and ate ice cream and got bitten by very hungry mosquitos. I didn’t introspect or make a concerted effort to connect with my intuitive side. But I did get to spend time connecting to the earth, which was very healing.

So here’s the first part of the topsy-turvy-ness. The minute we got there my computer fritzed out, as if to say “Enough of me: time for nature!” And it’s still broken. In fact, I’m sneaking on my husband’s computer now; he doesn’t like me to use his because, well, my computers tend to break. Maybe it’s because of my amazingly strong and powerful energy field! Or maybe it’s because I tend to manhandle them. I REALLY don’t like having my computer down, because I have work to do. A LOT of work to do.

The second part of the topsy-turvy-ness is that there was a frenzy of family business/news going on during the trip: upcoming births, some deaths, and one major surgery. The third part was that there was a not-so-great financial thing (other than the computer) that I don’t want to talk about.

The FOURTH part is that when we got back to LA, the afore-mentioned major surgery was top priority, so to the hospital I went. It was the only place in the world I was meant to be, and there was a very present-moment-ness about it. But it was still topsy-turvy, and I wasn’t practicing being all psychic and magical and intuitive. All my energy was focused on my loved one. She doesn’t believe in this stuff so I couldn’t even try to heal her or send her energy in the room because she would not like that one bit and I would never, ever try to do energy work on someone who would not want it. That’s intrusive and unethical. What I did get to do was just be there for her and give her all my love and support.

So, in an attempt to make my point with all this rambling, I think we have to appreciate the time we have to be at peace, and to be still, and to be able to meditate and focus on our quiet intuitive voice. Yes, it’s totally possible to develop your intuitive side when you lead a very busy life; but it’s much harder to do so when life is over the top HECTIC on a daily basis, to the point where you don’t feel like you have time to take proper care of your physical body, much less your spiritual self. For the deep, heavy-duty spirit stuff, you really do have to make room for peace.

Life is all about change, though – there are busy times, slow times, hectic times, holding pattern times, and crazy times. So I guess the most “intuitive” thing to do would be to just go with it, to know that where you are is where you’re supposed to be, and to hopefully navigate yourself through the turbulence as well as you can.
