Have you ever sat back and noticed how many different facets of life there are? Let me explain. So my guilty pleasure at this moment is watching "The Long Island Medium" on TLC. There, I said it. I put it out there. I bet there are many other people that can relate to this as well. It gives me an hour of brevity while I eat my lunch. Since I work out of my house, it's nice to get out amongst the "real" world for an hour or so and see what's going on. Theresa Caputo is your typical Long Island resident. Well, perhaps I shouldn't stereotype folks like that. I'm sure they are not all walking around with long nails and big hair. However, since I left the East Coast 15 years ago, I kind of still have that stereotype in my head. Heck, I had the big hair myself. Never quite understood the nails though.
I digress. As I was watching an episode On Demand today, it became very clear to me that although we all come different backgrounds, cultures, family size, family style, geographical location, etc., the themes of life run the same throughout all different types of people. In my life's work, I would love to be able to heal people to the point that they can get out of their ruts and move into their best selves. After watching today's episode, it dawned on me that that is just what the Long Island Medium wants as well. You can literally see the folks she is doing readings for lift up in spirit and body. It sometimes looks as if they have gained back years of their lives. What a gift to get.
I lost both of my parents to a heart attack and Alzheimer's respectively. One I never got to say goodbye to and the other the goodbye was too long. What I mean is that my mom suffered with this disease for a long time. It would have been nice to know that she passed over sooner and got to a peaceful place. There are days where I know their souls are around me. In fact, just the other day I distinctly smelled cigarette smoke around my house. I went out and no one was anywhere around. In fact, I know none of my neighbors smoked. A ha, I thought, Dad must be coming in for a visit. He smoked like there was no tomorrow. Unfortunately because he smoked so much, there was no tomorrow.
In each of the readings that Theresa does, you can see the different themes of life: loss, love, regret, gratitude, joy, relief, etc. Loved ones get the answers they have been looking for. Thus they can begin the long process of healing and moving on with their lives. That's what I want for my clients, myself and my family members as well. Take that first step and the others will follow. Step out of your need to be right and step into saying yes to your soul!
So now that I have outed myself as a fan of a reality show, I feel like a weight has been lifted off of me. Why do I sit in the basement and hide this? Why don't I put myself out there with the other fans of her show, why, why??? So this is probably the subject of another blog post to come!!
