I haven't thought about David Bowie in years. Nor have I seen images of him until last Tuesday when the many faces of Bowie went rolling through my newsfeed in Facebook.
My reaction to his death is complex. While I was never one that called myself a fan, I LOVE his work. At least his 80's and 90's work. He fell off my radar after that. Until last week when he took center stage in a way that only Bowie can.
The girls and I have been watching videos and listening to his songs. Seeing the many incarnations of him all at once has been quite shocking to my system. I am in awe of his creativity. I am jealous of it. I am full of sorrow.
The Goblin King is dead.
He left many parting gifts. A new album. A farewell in his song and video, Lazarus. A show in New York City. All of this he created and released in the last 18 months of his life. He knew he was dying. He knew what he meant to his fans. With great care he went to work, preparing himself and the world for his death.
My head is swirling with that. I mean, this was an incredible undertaking. To make and release all of that material is mind blowing.
His message for me came through loud and clear in his song, Changes. He says, "Ch-ch-ch-changes, turn and face the strange..."
I feel like I've been pierced through the heart at full speed by a lance.
You see, I have gone down the strangest path I could imagine for myself in the last few years. Last year especially when I chose to believe that I was psychic and I got first rate training to develop my gift.
It was not an easy transformation. There were many times that I felt like I was going to die or lose myself in the immeasurable forces of the spirit realm. And yet, the unfolding was beautiful. I emerged transformed and spiritually resourced. Along the way, I married my energy medicine with my psychic medicine and my business experience and created a potent and unique set of skills . I did all of this for myself because I was incomplete as a person without it. But what kept me going was knowing that I could bring this to others. I developed and am continuing to develop that gift so that I can be of service to others.
With my training complete, I've been hiding. I've been putting my toe in. I've been reluctant and slow to reveal myself. How do I know this? Because I've been coming up with programs and products that nobody wants.
"Ch-ch-ch-changes. Turn and face the strange..."
Bowie has brought me to another brink. He's clearly telling me that I need to make a change. Have you been feeling that too? Well, I'm heeding the call. I'm not serving others the way I would like. That means I'm not serving myself the way I would like. It starts with me. That's how the ripples flow.
My guides told me at the end of last year to write.write.write.write. I've been preparing to write ever since. Have I started? No.
From this moment, I'm stepping into the writing channel. I will be writing at least one of these letters a week. Sometimes more. Be forewarned. If you don't want to receive extra e-mail, feel free to unsubscribe. I have so much to say and not enough time and space to do it once per week. I'm releasing myself from the once-per-week-publication-schedule-cause-someone-told-me-that's-how-to-do-it and publishing as I go.
With that, I cancelled my Eat, Drink, and Be Merry class. Bowie has put me firmly back on my path. I'm here to write.publish.write.publish.repeat. I'm here to empower those who are going through changes in their lives. I'm here to put my life and my house in order. I'm here to raise my children. And that's enough. Boom.
It's time for me to fully face the strange. The only way I can do that is to change the way I'm doing things. I need more upside down and backwards in my day. I need to spill my guts. How about you? Are you feeling it too? What are you doing to answer the call? I'd love to hear from you. Hit reply and let me know.
To get us warmed up, I'll start. In addition to more writing, it's time for me to bring you access to the strange. Here's my next ch-ch-change:
I'm opening up my schedule to Psychic Readings + Engergy Work. I realize that an intensive life coaching experience is not on your radar at the moment. However, I know that you have questions and troubles for which you seek answers. I know that you would appreciate and benefit from some guidance and direction that you can run with right now.
The Physic work illuminates your troubles and helps you to see them differently. The energy work helps to clear the energetic blocks within you that are holding you in a pattern from which you are ready to shift.
You can schedule yourself at any time. Just click the link below:
Yes, it's scary to think about having a psychic reading, especially if you've never had one before. I promise you they are illuminating and empowering. You will learn what steps you need to take to create the ch-ch-changes that you crave in your life.
Farewell Goblin King. Your gift to me is beyond measure.
Wishing you joy,
P.S. If you don't see a time that works for you but would like to sign-up, just e-mail me by hitting reply or at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know 2 alternate times that work for you. I will be in touch. Thank you.
Welcome. This is where I share what's on my mind and in my heart. You'll see that there's an offer to work with me in every letter. I'm shifting that as I go. Whether the offers excite you or turn you off I hope you find a juicy nugget or two in here that infuses you with more of you. Be kind to yourself because you rock. - Kate
