Jesus was a Pisces Too

I recently found Googled proof that I share a birthday with Jesus. I’d been looking for JC’s “real” birthday since well before Christmas –because the “holidays’ continue to lose meaning for me. I’m puzzling together a spiritual education for my son that includes teachings of all of the spiritual masters. But, I’m doing it on a shoestring time budget. So, admittedly – I “Google” many things first.

Although you can find ANYTHING on the internet, and so much of it is clouded in “scientific proof” or the admitted opinions of fantasy seekers – something about this made me ponder my connection with Jesus more deeply. And what came of it is pretty cool.

You see, I’m not a Christian. I was raised Catholic, and as an extremely sensitive and psychic child that really gave me a bad taste for church, church music, and images of Christ on the Cross. At a young age, I didn’t buy that suffering was what Jesus meant to teach us. And, I expressed that by throwing tantrums, giving the evil eye to people at church, and not singing or shaking hands at “peace be with you” when I was supposed to. Still, I found myself talking to Jesus, the “Real Jesus” (in my mind), in most of my internal conversation. I felt him holding me on many nights. Then, I grew up.

Until last January, when I had the most amazing and painful experience with the spirit world, I hadn’t seen Jesus in ages. But soon my visions, feelings and messages increased daily.

I hear that the times are changing, and soon messages like this will become more okay and accepted by all. And, in fact that messages like this are what we need to heal many of our pains. In a dream, Jesus told me to look at my hands. And, in them were endless crystal pools. He said “You know what you do with your hands?…. I taught you that.”

Since 2011 began, my visits from Jesus in dreams and waking life have inspired me to further study his connection to Reiki Healing… we all read in the Bible that Jesus healed with his hands – but I wanted to know how that connected to Reiki. When I asked that question in my mind, my brain filled with the Hare Krishna song, and I heard Jesus tell me that he has traveled to India. Then signs continued to pop up that he in fact DID travel there and shared knowledge with eastern spiritual leaders.

Everything brings me back to the idea that we are all connected and that was his true message. We are so connected that it makes my head spin sometimes. My husband feels my headaches, my son reads my thoughts, and I always wake up KNOWING some of what’s about to unfold for the day.

As a child, I had no idea how to marry my inner world with my outer, so I wrote a lot. I used to just let my pen float over the page and write “what God told it to write” then look up to my bedroom ceiling and say “Thank you God.” It was the best way I could connect with spirit. And, when God made my pen move I knew he/she was still there.

Today I know that I can connect with spirit more by connecting with you, and sharing the work that has been passed down to me.

As I write and teach I grow so much. But, I no longer fear exploding. I’m about to turn 32 on March 1. My birthday hasn’t meant that much to me since the days my dad used to take me out for lox and bagels, bowling and clothes-shopping. Don’t get me wrong…. there have been awesome birthdays.. really awesome ones. But, I’m a pisces and I always look for deep meaning.

This year, the deeper meaning is in the gifts I give. I already have some up my sleeve for the loves in my life. And, please keep watch for the ones I have for you.

Bliss You

I Thank the Lord for the People I Have Found

Yep, I so borrowed that line from Elton John, and I thank the Lord for him too.   If you’re kind to me, I may one day share the love poem I wrote to EJ in 8th grade.

2010 has rocked my socks off

I went through countless and often very un-desired computer and electronic problems. In the throws of the current Mercury Retrograde, my phones fizzled out, my computer crash, boom, banged on many levels, I lost more of my files (research and other “important” stuff),my sink clogged, ants took over my apartment, my gas was turned off,  I broke the movie screen at our local library with 2 bits of Reiki (whoops)and I spent a lot of time in talks with my guides about what it all meant.

But, I’m convinced that these techy bumps in the road have cleared the path for what’s to come.

I wrote so much  this year that my fingers nearly melted, I surpassed my career goals, I held my little man’s hand to his first day of school, I said yes a lot,  I ate sushi again,  I  learned that I  love durian, I went to  my first  heavy metal concert, I connected with the awesomeist clients ever, I became a Reiki Master Teacher, I performed my first official intuitive/psychic readings (well, in this life time), I had a spontaneous 36-hour past life regression that taught me so much about myself, I learned how to say no, I forgave and let go, I spent 90% of the time with my my soul twin and hubby, Doug, and thankfully I found this yummy bliss inside that rocks my world.

And that’s just an ounce of it

I’m a people person. If you work with me, you know that it usually takes all of 2 minutes to become my friend. I’ve met and lost many friends this year. All in good vibes though –for the experiences have really helped me enjoy the taste of life.

I am so thankful to you  for making your way in my life and sharing your energy and lessons. I am grateful to be able to hug you, listen to you, and even let you go, if that’s where the world has taken us. You, my friends make me realize how precious life is and I honor every moment that I know you.

My angel card for today was forgiveness

And,  the forgiveness that I sent and experienced today has opened me up for so much more. I’m ready for 2011, are you?

what rocked about 2010.. and what do you want ore of in 2011?

I really am so grateful for you.

Namaste,

Gina
