Time passages

Looking through some older photos the other day, I came across some older snaps of Frankie the dog:

and with youngest:

He’s been a source of hilarity and a source of comfort, too.

See the smile on Frank's face?

And always, he continues to do what he does best … stay close.

Time passages.

13 years since he came home with us from the pound.

And always, ever faithful.

There is no faith which has never yet been broken, except that of a truly faithful dog.  ~Konrad Lorenz

Signs, signs everywhere signs

Driving to a workshop a few weeks ago, I enjoyed the morning sunshine and some Elvis tunes – it was his birthday that day, after all. Nothing like a little “Burning Love” to get me ramped up for a new adventure!

Introducing the course materials, the instructor explained how she does her work (she’s a Reiki healer and a spiritual medium) when she added, “but it’s not like I can channel Elvis or anything” I smiled and knew that comment was for me.

Before I committed to the  class, I had to wrap my head around the fact that I used to work where the class was being held.  We had reorganized and didn’t need that much office space; the building and surrounding acreage sold easily. The new owners invested a lot to convert it from office space to a spa/healing center and what a beautiful center it is now.  At the time of the sale, I served as the legal contact and while I couldn’t remember the new owner’s names, I definitely remembered their personalities: she was headstrong and driven, he was quiet and meticulous. I remembering wondering if I could ever work for a woman with a personality so defined (think: her way or the highway).  Probably, but it would not be without its challenges, I thought.

Back to the class … it began, I took notes, and felt myself relax into the materials.  Then, I found myself distracted by Salisbury steak.  Now I love to cook and I enjoy food, but I’m not a fan. In fact, I’ve never even cooked it!

I know you’re probably wondering where this is going .. please bear with me.

When the instructor referenced the work she does and and how the Spa owner’s personality is a “red” – someone who is pragmatic, organized and defined and she’s more of a “green” – creative, light and carefree, I asked, “Do you have to speak another language just so she can understand you?”  She looked me right in the eye and said, “Yes, that’s it, exactly.” And suddenly that steak image popped up again and I recalled the name:  Julie  Salisbury – the buyer from so many years ago…

Signs are everywhere. We all get them and we all have an intuitive voice that speaks to us:    Do we heed the signs?

“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant.  We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.” – Albert Einstein.
