Telling the Story With a Life Path Reading
I have been doing life path readings since 2008 and I still remember the hopes and fears I had going into the first one. My client had relationship problems and I learned an important lesson that day, to always go with what my intuition tells me despite appearances.
The cards showed me the abusive patterns of the relationship and I was about to tell my client that she might be happier exploring a different path. I glanced at the cards one more time, breathed deeply and gave it a few more seconds before I spoke. The words that came out of my mouth told the story of two people with growing pains and much to be hopeful about.
I know now to wait for the real story, the one that tells itself in that flowing manner I have learned to trust completely. I actually met with the same woman a while ago. She had come to Zion to marry the man from way back and she thanked me for encouraging her to be patient. It made no sense at the time, but it was the most inclusive path. Being intuitive means seeing the truth, as it is, with no filters.
I am given a short window of time, usually with a stranger, to channel a message from spirit. I know it is coming from spirit because it is one of hope. Messages from spirit ALWAYS come with some lasting light. I love helping clients find the openings that invite movement and flow back in their lives. That is what it is all about for me and there is always a door. We may have a hard time seeing it through the mist of our fear and doubt, but it is there.
I activate my altar a half hour before a reading, sing healing songs, meditate, and say a special prayer to ground and open up the channel for assistance. There is a tickle at this point, a slight flutter in my chest. Will my guides come through for me? Will I be able to communicate to the client what they need to hear, and will they be able to receive this guidance? I pray that I will I be able to build trust and create an atmosphere that facilitates healing.
A Life Path Reading is a heart to heart talk. Healing does not happen unless the client becomes involved. I have made many wonderful friends along this path and I have learned more about myself with each client. The struggles and victories we go through are universal by nature. The ways we deal with them are unique and inspiring to witness.
The candle is lit and the card decks are laid out to my right. Soon, the purple fabric before me will be covered with vivid imagery and ancient symbols that tell the story of another hero on the journey.
