It used to take me a long time to figure things out. I worried about everything, and I made a lot of mistakes. I still do at times. However, once I get it, it stays with me forever. Here are a few personal stories of how I learned not to let things get to me and to trust and act upon the insights that come to me for guidance—as they do for all of us, in all of life’s decisions and concerns.
Aside from a spontaneous awakening November 1975 to my higher destiny and purpose, one of the first times the inner magic guided me (and I listened) was when it came to me in 1979 that I really needed to quit that job. I was sure. On Friday, I gave notice, after three-and-a-half years as the senior word-processor at ITU in Colorado Springs. Then immediately I wondered, what could I do now for money? Inner voice answered, Do readings. OMG. That’s a good idea, I thought back, as I already had been giving free soul readings for a while now. Then the next Monday—I got a phone call from a lawyer, who had been tracking me down for five years, with a $5,000 inheritance from my deceased mother (who had been murdered in front of me when I was two, but I never knew her family). Well – I was already clear on just what to do with the money: It was meant to support me while I started my new path of giving soul readings.
