As you might know, I just finished up a new video course called Tarot & Mediumship. I taught it with the amazing medium, Heather Hildebrand. My mother passed away in May of 2013 (right after Mother’s Day) but she still gets her messages through to me. Often, they come through Heather.
Heather called me a couple of weeks ago to tell me that mom visited her in a dream last night with a message for me. As soon as Heather explained what my mom wanted me to know, I immediately said to Heather “Oh, my mom is writing my blog!”
So, here’s what mom felt that I (and you) needed to know “Life is like a Christmas tree. Not that one in Radleigh’s living room. That’s just the ‘pretty tree.’ Oh, it’s wonderful and all, but there’s no story there. The decorations are all new and perfect. I’m talking about the other tree – the one in the dining room. That’s the one with the history on it. There are ornaments that remind him of good times, but also ones that remind him of great loss. We all come into this life with a purpose. And there is purpose to the joy and the pain. But when you stand back, it’s all beautiful – just like a Christmas tree.”
Please keep in mind that Heather has never been in my house at Christmas and has not seen our two trees to know that one is “pretty” and the other has “history.” She’s just that fabulous a medium.
I had never thought about how a Christmas tree could reflect our lives in quite that way. Just a couple of months ago, my cousin Leah sent me some of the handmade ornaments her mother (also now deceased) had made and I had every intention of adding them to the “history tree.”
What I have known for a long time is that the holidays are hallowed to me. Not only is my birthday in December, but my mother’s birthday was Christmas Eve. It is a time of joyful reflection in my life that I truly cherish. I love my mother’s message to me, but I think possibly… just maybe… the message was more meant for you than for me. Of course, I will definitely be thinking about her message as the trees go up this year. Each ornament will go up with more consideration for what it might represent in my life – past and present.
But somehow… I think my mom wanted my blogger pen. I think she just wanted to share a thought with those for whom Christmas seems like an extra struggle this year.
She wanted you to know that if you stand back far enough, life is like a Christmas tree.
P.S. By the way mom… just for the record, both our trees are pretty.
Over the last 6 weeks I’ve just sort of been meandering through all my decks. Naturally, I couldn’t leave out the one that started it all! So, Angel Tarot Cards had a lot to say about career and life purpose this week. If that’s on your mind, you should have a look!...
As of just an hour ago of this writing, TeamRad just finished our annual planning for the coming year. I say “coming year” because over the course of time, it has just organically become the schedule that RadSchool functions on the timeline of a regular college. We do...
Well, I’ve just got Archangel Power Tarot Cards on the brain this week! And boy did they have a very strong message. For them to be so repetitive must mean some of us are being resistant to letting the past go. But apparently, we really need to! Get the scoop here!...
Well, here we go again. Mercury Retrograde has begun (Tuesday, May 7th) and will be on a little backwards romp through our charts until June 3rd. I know that Merc Retro makes a lot of people nervous. It’s an awfully personal planet given that it represents technology,...
It has been way too long since I reached out to the fairies for an Energetic Weather Report, so it was time for Fairy Tarot Cards! The fairies are often direct with a bit of sassy in their message, and this time was no different. Go and get their advice for the week...
