So I’m back from my vacation. I’ve waited 9 years to go to the coast again and it was wonderful and I enjoyed every minute of it. Before my trip I actually had another visit from my grandfather who in life was like my father figure. He passed nearly 20 years ago and I have always grieved that loss. Ironically it was a visit from him several years ago that started me heavily down my current path. He appeared to me in a vision and told me things that were going to happen and long story short I started to develop my Mediumship abilities at that time.
In life, he was the first person to take me to see the ocean. When he visited me before I left it was very funny and very touching. He was sitting with my grandmother in their old living room and I being a vegetarian made him some veggie bacon and he bit into it and made a face and I told him you can’t eat regular bacon every day it isn’t good for you! and he laughed and said like that matters huh? and I was like oh yeah… that lol. so he was tweaking my nose and still wanting his steady diet of crappy food I guess I knew he’d be looking out for me on my trip so it was nice, but even though I know he is still around it is sometimes still hard. He was always my shelter during a very rocky childhood and I turned to him to feel the acceptance and love I didn’t feel in an abusive home/school situation. His loss left me feeling very abandoned and alone as a teen and I had to find my strength to get through a lot of rough spots.
I was reflecting on a lot of my experiences after his visit and on my way down to the coast and I actually realized that I’ve enjoyed my life as a whole, even the difficult parts and that’s why the quote I got in my email today was so serendipitous. Spending time by the ocean tends to make me more reflective. Being a Scorpio I am naturally drawn to the water and the pull of the tides and the ocean is a place of magic, serenity and beauty beyond words to me.
Anyway here is my quote of the day
“How do we nurture the soul? By revering our own life. By treating it as supremely important. By reaching for the best within ourselves. By learning to love it all, not only the joys and the victories, but also the pain and the struggles.”
– Nathaniel Branden
So this trip and that visit have been a wonderful birthday gift to me. My boyfriend and I both have October birthdays his was while we were gone and mine fittingly enough is on Halloween. This year will definitely be memorable
Now that I’m home it’s back to work. Of course with Mercury in retrograde in my sign lol there have been many small upheavals to come home to but I am not going to trip over the trivial . I have two jewelry sales the next couple of weeks to do & Halloween is coming up so there will be lots of fun things to do to prepare for that as well. I’m glad to be home and getting back into the swing of things. I will post some pictures when I have them all sorted/edited.
