Letter to a Friend: Intuition, Discovery and Cosmic Support on the Path

I hope our chat was beneficial…

A lot of information got downloaded there..
Be kind/ patient with yourself.. as this was, essentially, a form of energetic healing/work…

Think of this as mediation, between what you want/ what you need.. and what the universe has in mind/store for how you fit into its bigger plans/fabric.

And remember, ask with some degree of specificity. asking for “help”, could mean you find a $5.00 bill on the sidewalk.. or someone opens a door for you on the way into a store… “help” is a very vague/generic concept.. the universe doesn’t intuit-guess well… it isn’t a mind-reader that way.. and/ or.. there are constraints.. ask and ye shall receive…

BUT- one caveat….that I always ask clients/ students.. we/ you are about to do some deep clearing and processing.. are you ready for whatever changes the universe might create, or your higher soul chooses…? Because once you’re on your way down the rabbit hole, it is too late to change your mind.. not that it’s a scary trip.. but that you shake the tree.. you don’t know what will shake loose… BUT.. if you are open and “embrace” work WITH the changes that are trying to happen.. the support is usually there to accommodate your journey.

That support can take many forms.. from a totem familiar, which could be either a real or energetic-mythic pet. (my pets, became my totems, after they had died.. so I don’t rule anything out anymore.  Maybe you will start seeing iguanas everywhere.. where you never did before.. hhmmmm? Be aware, tune in and be receptive. think of it like a cosmic mailbox. A package may get delivered.. or it might be a postcard.. but chances are- SOMETHING will be in the box, at some point, before too long.

Support may also come in the form of a real live human mentor.. a nuts and bolts kind of support. Support for the this-world part of the journey and transitions. The ancient saying- when the student is ready, the teacher/mentor appears.

Your dreams may change, both literal and mythic/life goal dreams.. you may find what you thought you wanted has subtly or drastically changed. You may find a slightly different flavour to an old desire. You may have wanted to work with animals, or loved animals. Now you see that it isn’t just animals.. but that it is say, working on a wildlife refuge.. or working with therapeutic animals for troubled kids.

Generally, the path you are best suited to work with and heal, is one you have walked. this is because you already resonate strongly with that dynamic. Why do former addicts make some of the best drug-counselors? Abuse survivors in crisis centers…?  So, one way to get a focus on what your “path” might be.. could be to look back at the path you have walked/ overcome.. and gain insight as to what that journey has been about. Is it about empowerment? education? spiritual growth? all of these things…? Based on that insight and understanding, this can help to get the aha, for how you can best fulfill both your deepest soul-satisfaction, and also serve the higher purposes of the universe..

Whatever unfolds, once you agree to the journey, and step onto the path.. wherever it may lead, know you are never alone and that there are markers, signposts, rest-areas and mentors all along the way. When we lose sight of this, or feel lost- this is just a reminder to stop, find the quiet, and listen/look for the information that will re-align where you are, with where you need/ want to be. it could be the path has shifted underfoot slightly.. or it could be you have wandered off, intentionally, or unintentionally.. and the lack of tranquility is a great reminder that you know what the path feels like.. and you know when you are off of it- just like a path in the woods.. The good part is.. the path is never too far from where you are, no matter how far you wander off of it.. it’s easier to get back on, than it is to wander off.

It’s a great journey and full of discovery and magic and wonder.. when you open up and agree to have the experience. And, the path is also ( most of the time) patient. 🙂



I am an Education Specialist, Health Coach and Author. I work with aspects of the teachings I have learned from Andean shamanic and cosmology, to health, nutrition and education.  Everything is energy. Energy must flow. Like water, when it does not flow, it stagnates and is not healthy. These techniques help your life to flow. I have been initiated into many of the ancient lineages and learned ceremonies, rites of passage and healing techniques.  I have worked as a healer and done workshops and taught some of these aspects – passing the teachings on.
