"I learned this, at least, by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his or her dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he or she has imagined, one will meet with a success unexpected in common hours."
--Henry David Thoreau, American Trancendentalist, from the conclusion of Walden
I have two main updates:
Come explore the ethereal influences both blocking and supporting your creations, as well as listen to—and learn from—the curiosities of others. Raise your hand, ask your question, and Heidi will describe the energy around the issue. Readings are public, in front of the group. The gallery supports a cooperative, lively, engaging foray into the ways of spirit!
This event is now happening on the second Friday of each month from 6:00-8:00pm at the Brewing Market in Lafayette (2770 Dagny Way #101, located in the shopping center at the SW corner of Arapahoe Road and 95th Street). The cost is $20, which can be paid at the door by cash or check, or pre-paid by credit card at my website, healings.biz. No reservations are necessary. The upcoming dates are:
February 14—bring your Valentine!
This quiet, peaceful guided meditation opens the imagination and promotes spiritual healing. As you explore different locations astrally, you will meet spiritual beings, learn about yourself, grow personally, and receive healing work.
Come as you are, wear comfortable clothing, and enjoy conscious community!
Heidi will lead a distinct journey each fourth Friday from 6:00-7:00pm at the Boulder Psychic Institute (1332 Pearl Street, upstairs, across from the courthouse on the Pearl Street Mall). This offering is by donation. Everyone is welcome! These journeys are fun for people at all levels of meditation experience or non-experience. The upcoming dates are:
And, of course, Heidi maintains her schedule of private readings/healings, animal speak sessions, as well as house and business healings.
Taking a step forward can feel like taking a step backwards. For instance, upon completion of my first reading, I was overcome by shame. It surprised me! I had not been aware of feeling ashamed before then. I asked myself, “Why do I feel so much shame?” I realized that— until then— I had been around people who were more ashamed than me. Surrounding myself with people who carried shame was comfortable because, in their presence, my shame could hide. Being with my regular crowd did not challenge me to look at myself.
It was not until I began psychic training that my environment was clear enough for me to recognize and experience my shame. At psychic school, I was surrounded by people who had processed (some of) their shame— which allowed me to see my shame. I knew that I had a choice to make. I could surround myself with people who had more shame (and pain, generally), which would enable me to mask— and perhaps accumulate— my own shame and pain, or I could choose to take a step by facing the discomfort of experiencing and acknowledging my imperfections in order to grow.
When we decide to take a step, we must release the energy that holds us back. Discovering my shame did not feel like taking a step forward; however, I had to release it in order to move ahead, and I could not let it go without recognizing it. In this way, moving towards our dreams can feel like heading into our nightmares. It is a strange process: we must clean out what we do not want in order to have what we do want.
Taking steps is not always fun at the time, but it becomes fun eventually. If we avoid facing certain experiences, we never learn to recognize, process, and release them. If they stay with us, they influence our actions and attitudes, usually unconsciously and undesirably. On the other hand, when we learn to navigate something new, life becomes less scary and more enjoyable. The fun increases with the willingness to face whatever is happening.
