Yesterday, a strange thing happened to me or shall I say encounter. I met an energy healer. She was kind enough to give me a short session to see what it was like. Our short session started with her burning sage under my chair. Then she began to feel my energy and was able to tell that I am a teacher. She was able to see a classroom. I indicated my feelings lately for the profession. She indicated to me that I had to become a teacher as that was part of my journey in life. I explained to her that I am an author as well. I informed her that I wrote my novella: Ignition: An Educator's Journey, based on my experience as an educator. She said that this clearly explains part of my purpose as to why I had to explore this profession. She informed me that just because I am in it now does not lock me in for life and I can explore other facets as well that deal with me as a writer. Then she said it, "Believe in yourself and your inner ambitions and goals could be achieved." I admitted to her that I don't always believe and get discouraged to continue my journey as an author. I am somewhat disappointed in myself as I promised that I would use the summer to work on my writing. However, since I am a teacher and our system has changed drastically for the worse, I used my summer more for recuperation than exploration as an author. I feel bad that I have not worked on writing, but I truly needed a break from it all. I am not sure if I believe in someone being able to read my energy, but I do believe in her healing effect. I do feel a little healed as a writer and have more confidence to continue my journey.
