For years, I have been told and have heard over and over again from many people that I needed to start a blog. I am usually not at a loss for what to say. However, I thought about writing this blog and could not think of anything I wanted to share.
Then it hit me; maybe I could start with an introduction of sorts about what this blog may cover. So here it goes. With my sense of humor, I was going to name my blog Energy Mandalas and Ramblings by Gail. After thinking about it, I decided that was not the direction to go, as other people may not have found that as funny as I did or understand my sense of humor. For those of you who do not know me, I have a tendency to go off on tangents and over explain. I think this has to do more with my therapist training then my intuitive or channeling abilities. Nonetheless, no matter where it stems from, it is something I will do from time to time. I can’t imagine that writing is going to be any different than talking for me, so there may be some rambling and over explaining going on here.
Over the coming months I would like to use this blog to share, thoughts, feelings, energy, channelings, meditations, excerpts from my books, mandalas and the energy of the month. I am going to be open to wherever spirit guides me to go, as most of the time I write, I am getting a little help from the other side. I have learned to just be open, not judge and trust the process. If I could leave you with one thing from this blog it would be that. Be open, follow your heart and trust your intuition.
2016 has been a strange and difficult year for most of us to navigate, myself included. I personally have had many blessings and been very fortunate. I have published four books that I am very passionate about and really believe in. I have been able to do many radio and a few television interviews and really start to get my message out into the world. Seeing myself on television or webcasts is still a strange thing for me, I have not gotten used to that yet. At the same time my joy was curtailed with great sadness when my mother transitioned from her fight with cancer this year. Knowing what I know about the afterlife and what happens when one drops or leaves there physical body did not prepare me for the deep sense of loss and wave of emotions I would encounter. Every day has been a challenge as I allow myself to just ride and surf the waves and emotions of grief. I have been told that the first time you experience anything after a loss is difficult. I am not sure that is completely true. I think a loss is difficult and yes the first time you go through a holiday, birthday or major life event is hard. However, I have noticed it is the little things that are even more difficult. When I have a flash of something, or a memory or a smell, it all can trigger me to have even more emotions. So, I am doing what we all do, I just keep breathing and doing my best to move forward and move on. Every day the sun rises and sets I have choices and chances to do, be, accomplish things and live to the fullest I can.
I look forward to what is coming and how we as humans can all learn to be the most authentic we can be. I look forward to what is ahead even though I am not sure what direction this will be taking. I will trust the process. Thank you all for taking this journey with me.
