An Unnecessary Situation

Earlier today, I was asked by a colleague to follow-up to see if so and so was attending this evening’s meet-up. Sure, no problem! I called and found that the voicemail was full, so I sent a brief to the point email.

A little while later, the response I received had me scratching my head.  I was shocked because the response was accusatory and angry.  This rattled and confused me. How did this response come from the simple request of are you attending and if so, please register here?

Of course, I went back and re-read my email. Was I clear? Did I unknowingly provoke this unwarranted response?  The email was actually upbeat and friendly, hey looking forward to seeing you at tonight’s event.  Being clear, I sent the response I received to my colleague, as in the moment, I was unsure of the best way to respond to this upsetting email.

My colleague was shocked and apologetic, as never in a million years did she expect the response that was received.  She felt badly that a simple email triggered such an accusatory reaction.  Me being me, I felt there was no apology necessary, as she at any given time can and should ask others for help if she needs it.  Secondly, how on earth was she to know (unless of course she checked her crystal ball first) that this would have transpired.  She decided that it would be best if she responded to the email.

I really admire my colleague for many reasons, one is that she has an incredible amount of tact and diplomacy.  As for myself, this isn’t always my strong point (yes, I am owning this part of me).  Actually, I have learned over time, with experience and wisdom, that if I am triggered by something someone has said in an email or verbally, I need to step back and let the initial reaction settle before responding.  In just a few minutes, she sent a response, which was clear, concise and apologetic for any confusion.  Great right?

Unfortunately that would be a big fat NO!  So and so felt it necessary to tear into her, and me, as well as creating these off the wall accusations that obviously this person felt we had made, yet were completely untrue.  Then so and so continued by sending additional responses that were crazier and crazier. **Ding Ding – nut job alert!

Finally, my extremely diplomatic friend reached her breaking point.  She sent a final email, still tactful, keeping to the facts saying, you know what, forget it.  You’re no longer welcome to join us and your check will be returned to you.

Later on before our meeting, we had an opportunity to discuss the events that had taken place earlier.  Neither of us could identify what it was that obviously set this person off, so we came to the only conclusion that we could which is this person has issues. While we were both disturbed, we were grateful to learn this about this person, before any damage could be done.

How would you handle a situation like this?  How would you respond? Would you stick to the facts? Or would you get caught into the drama of the accusations? How would you react to someone accusing you of saying something that you never said?

I have two major take-aways from this experience.  First is that I will always work with women who support and back each other. Being there for each other made all the difference.  Also, that no matter how many professional credentials a person may have, it doesn’t exclude them from being an asshole or to have issues.

Making of a drum…

Earlier this year the drum I use for Shammanic Healing, was sadly damaged in a drive from the southeast to the northeast.  When I discovered the drum was damaged, I immediately was sad.  Truth is I burst into tears.  The drum had come to me 9 years ago and it became one of the tools I connected with the most. As I was in this moment of sadness, I also started to feel joy.  This tool had been in service for healing for the entire time. It touched many lives, mine included and I realized just how grateful I was.

I was hopeful I might be able to repair the drum, yet was unsure how.  I reached out to a friend who as hosted drum making workshops to see if she might be able to repair it for me. Intuitively she echoed the message that I had received, which was it was time to let go. That it had served it’s purpose. This friend is a wise soul and I knew what she said to be true.  She suggested that I make my own drum, that it was an experience I should consider.

After a few months, I finally ordered a drum kit from Cedar Mountain Drums in Portland, OR.  It arrived two days before embarking on our journey to England. While I had wanted to create the drum under the influence of the total solar eclipse, unfortunately with the soaking time, it had to wait for my return.

While in England, we attended the Conference on Consciousness and Human Evolution in London, which was highly educational and intense. After, we visited Avebury & Glastonbury – visiting the Chalice Well, Glastonbury Tor and the Abbey.  I meditated in the peaceful, loving chalice well garden, then climbed Glastonbury Tor to meditate inside the the tower. While sitting at the top with the Tor, I felt as though I was vibrating.  Combined that with the peace I had experienced in the garden and I felt that my heart chakra was wide open.  I was filled with love and gratitude and was feeling so blessed and peaceful in the moment.  Later I learned that these sacred places are on a “ley line” that is considered the heart chakra of the world!

After we returned from our epic journey, I felt it was time to make the drum.  The drum came with written instructions as well as links to watch videos that were of the drum maker, Patrick Pinson giving step by step instructions while he made a drum. I watched all the videos and found them to be an invaluable tool!

Before making the drum, I created sacred space and smudged the space, hide, hoop and ties.  Making a drum is a sacred ceremony, it was important to be clear to infuse only the best, most positive, loving intentions into the drum.

As I did this, I documented the process some…

Starting to make the drum

All prepped and ready to go!

Lacing the drum

Lacing the drum was next, giving thanks to Father Sky and Mother Earth, breathing into my heart and breathing out of my heart, I continued clockwise, as Patrick had advised.

Lacing and stretching complete

Once the lacing was complete, next was wrapping the four quadrants or four directions, creating a cross, which will serve as the drum handle.

Up high to dry

Having a 5 month old kitten means, if there is something she shouldn’t be into, it has to go higher than she can go.  See the heart? How cool!

Dry and ready to be awakened

It took a solid 2 days to completely dry.  I was so excited to take the drum down and hear it’s sound for the first time.  I created sacred space again, smudging the space, the drum, the beater, and myself, then calling in each direction, one by one. Once the awakening was complete, I continued drumming for as long as I felt moved to.

Consciously making and awakening the drum is an experience I am most grateful for.  I now look forward to sharing the medicine of the drum with others.

Feel free to visit Cedar Mountain Drums if you wish to make or purchase a drum of your own.  Their products and service is exceptional! Please tell Patrick I sent you.  www.cedarmountaindrums.com

*Note: My kit was a 20″ inch cedar hoop with Elk hide.

 

Creating the drum brought me back to my drum circle days. I am grateful to my teacher of the drum, Ray Spirit Wolf.  Ray is the drum keep of an amazing drum.  He shared his knowledge, wisdom and medicine of the drum with several of us, teaching us the ways that he had learned and the songs.  Our drum circle met regularly for almost 3 years. We participated at several Pow-Wow’s in the RI/MA area.  Below is the one group picture of our drum members, taken at a Pow Wow in Lincoln, RI.  We were called Hawk Song Drum.   It was an absolute joy and honor to be a part of this loving circle. I am so grateful for the experience!

Today’s Reading Results 12/9/15

As promised, here’s today’s reading.

How does your choice resonate with you?  Does it apply to something currently present in your life?  How does it feel when you read your card?

FullSizeRender

A = Osiris = Father, Husband, Brother, Son – This has to do with the first person who popped into your head. Your present relationships improve as you heal feelings about your father. A deceased male loved one (Father, Husband, Brother, Son) is sending Love from Heaven.   You have recently or are about to meet a significant male partner. Practice both giving and receiving daily to help balance your male and female energy.

B = Lugh = Persistence – Keep going!  Stick with it!  Your effort  will be rewarded. Visualize your dreams already manifested. Stay positive! Overcome procrastination tendencies and take inspired action today. Commit to your dream/goals.

C = Oshun = Drink More Water – This comes as a reminder to drink more water, you body is thirsty for pure water.  Buy a water purifier. Avoid drinking soda, coffee or alcohol.  Sweat out the toxins in your body either through exercise, sweat lodge or steam bath.  Spend time near the ocean, a lake or other water element.

Notes:

If you felt resistance to the result,  you may choose to meditate or ask yourself questions as to what the resistance is? Often times our resistance is something subconscious.

If the result resonated for you, how did you experience this?

 

 

 

 

Message from the soul…

Sunburst beach

 

When we stop searching outside ourselves for the answers and for our faith and start searching within ourselves, we realize that GOD/SPIRIT is inside each and every one of us.  Once we consciously accept this as the truth, we experience a powerful shift in consciousness.  When this happens our lives transform quickly, as long as we continue to grow.

Things that seemed impossible become a reality, dreams come true.  When our lives align with GOD/SPIRIT within, our SOUL understanding becomes the driving force.  When we open ourselves to LOVE, both to give and receive, it has profound effect on our lives.

By learning to forgive and let go of what no longer serves our highest good, we open ourselves even further.  As this happens, we are often at battle with ourselves, with the ingrained beliefs put upon us by others and ourselves. Learning to recognize  these beliefs, we are able to easily and quickly make adjustments.  Not judging others or ourselves is very freeing.  Our thoughts, which are pure energy change to a higher frequency, one that once experienced, you yearn for more.  Our flesh makes us human and often we must experience pain before we can feel and know joy at it’s fullest.

Learning to keep our thoughts and intentions focused on positive, enlightening, affirming goals and outcomes, one starts to ascend to higher energy levels, attracting like-minded people who surround and embrace the journey with you, understanding that it is not about one, or in this case me, it’s about being a part of the “ONE” in pure LOVE.

 

One Love!

Sherry

 

 

 

Change…

transformationIt is my understanding  and knowing that change is inevitable and constant evolution.  I can choose to  embrace change or resist it. Ever hear the saying, what I resist is what persists? It is so true!  Think about it for a moment… go back in your mind to a time you were in the midst of change, maybe it was exciting, or scary, or even something in between.  You may find that when you were resistant, things didn’t go as smoothly as you’d liked.  Yet the moment you surrendered and let go, things magically fell into place and everything just flowed.

While I know this and understand this, I realize that while in the midst of change, its important to remind myself to let go, to trust in the process and know, really know that no matter what, everything is going to be fine.  Easy to say, yet it can be hard to do, of course, if I so choose.

See I also realize that I have CHOICE.  We all make choices from the moment we are awake until the time we go to sleep.  How so?  Well we choose what we eat, what we wear, where we go, etc.  In fact, we are always making choices.  Are we making the choices that are best for us? Are we in alignment with our choices?

A few months ago, I was in a position to make a choice, in a moment, in this case, to stay or go.  As I mentally checked in with myself, I asked myself, what is best for me?  What feels right to me?  Once I reached a decision on what I would do, I felt peaceful inside, which was my sign I was in alignment with the choice I was about to make. In this case, it felt good and was the right thing to do for myself. This feeling lasted for several hours, then anxiety (which is fear in disguise) made its presence known.

Fortunately, I am blessed to have very loving, encouraging and supportive people in my life.  When the fear surfaced, I immediately reached out to a dear friend who happens to also be an amazing coach.  She quickly helped me to see the reality of the situation and helped me to strategize on what I needed to do next.  She listened and gave sage advice on allowing myself to just be.  Just talking with her  calmed me allowing me to see what was, not what I perceived it to be.

That night as I reflected and checked in with myself, I realized, that I had manifested this solution.  For several years, I have desired to be a full-time entrepreneur again, yet through obligations and unconscious self sabotage, I was unable to make the leap, until, that moment three months ago.  The Universe responded to my requests and removed all perceived obstacles from my path, clearing the way for me to serve my soul purpose of helping others heal.

We are all spiritual beings having a human experience and I’ve experienced the gamut of emotions that come with change. Yet I continue to choose to embrace each emotion as it comes, sometimes I resist, and when I catch myself, I ask myself what is it that you need to learn that once you learn it you can let go?  Once I know what the learning is, I am able to let go and get back into the flow.  Which allows me to focus on what I want, rather than what I don’t want.

Do you know what you want? Upon reading this question, where does your mind go? Does it go to what you want?  Or does it go to what you don’t want? Which is it?

Next time, we we go a step further with this, bringing in the Law of Attraction.

 

**When you are looking for a coach who is an excellent model of excellence, I highly recommend Terry Wildemann  at www.awakenthepossibilities.com and www.attractionpreneur.com. Her wisdom and insights have been incredibly helpful to me and she has the skills and experience that makes the difference!
