Yesterday I went to the local gem show. I haven't had the time free to go in about five years. I was amazed at how everything was exactly the same. It was the same people with the same booths set up in the same place. It's like going back in time.
But in some ways, it wasn't.
Anthony had gone to a theme park with some friends. In a hurry, I gave him money from my wallet. But here to park it cost eight dollars. Fortunately I had that much cash, that was it, and I emptied it just to park. I hoped for an ATM, because I suspected entrance was cash only.
And there was an ATM.
Gem shows, energetically, are like shooting the rapids in a spring overflow river--there's everything coming from everywhere. All at once!
I walked the booths. And I felt the energies. It's ironic how un-spiritual some people are who sell the beads and stones. Yet they provide a vital service.
This was the first time I've ever been recognized and approached by someone who reads our work--and I was caught a little off-guard. It was a good thing. And this woman Kathleen I actually met face-to-face five years ago and recommended her to our websites.
She was super excited to see me. She loves Ross and Anthony. I was surprised how she recognized me but she said, 'you have your face on things' and I was like, 'oh yes, that's right!'.
Her tale of her response to surgery with the healing from our team was phenomenal. Everyone--doctors, family, nurses, were amazed at how little side effects she had from anesthesia and how quickly she healed.
She was so grateful.
I have done this.
I've been to concerts, wanting to have 'proof' or 'memories' of my being there, and filmed things.
I even had the chance to meet Bill Vance of Vance Gems--a master cutter and gemologist--at the gem show, and he made me star struck. I knew what rare and valuable gems he had on display, some things you never could see except in museums. I was so glad to understand and appreciate his work. It's a sign of all the healing and growth I've done as a jewelry-maker in the past five years.
Sadly, Bill was targeted by thieves who stole a display case with thirty-four hundred dollars of merchandise in it. I saw him walking the show looking for someone with a case under their arm.
I sent him an email today of hope--both that our team was sending him and his wife Reiki--and also that at a recent coin show there was a similar theft. But at the next coin show, the community recognized the new people at the new table selling the stolen coins, and justice came through the authorities and the victims got their valuable coins back.
These days are coming for me.
I know because I remember them now back Home, and back Home I don't really like it.
In meditation I have been on stage with Ross with souls as far as the eye can see in the audience, cheering him and I with their whole hearts--and I, uncomfortable by the attention, smile politely and whisper under my breath to Ross--'can I go now?'.
The moral of the story is this--Ross and I dearly, dearly love you, and if you approach either one of us in person, Ross is the 'people' person. I will 'improvise' and perhaps be awkward if I am approached. It's not my strength. But I will do my best to honor the moment, and to make it a pleasant and lasting memory for you. I'm sorry in this regard that I am not Ross the charmer. It's just he's a much better fit for the job than I in circumstances like this.
This is where I excel. To create beautiful things with my hands. And I relax and enjoy this very much.
I told Ross this morning I will need extra training on how to handle my weaknesses in the future with publicity.
He wants me to try this Usui Reiki Virtual Retreat from Pam Miles. I did the first part today in the sunshine. I saw Usui-sensei too. With his little glasses. I will strengthen myself every day.
Good things are ahead.
There was a booth for this at the very front of the gem show. They were handing out tote bags with information in them.
I asked them 'how can we stop this?'. They said, 'by raising awareness'.
It was the same conversation we had five years ago, back then I said I was a blogger and I would share. I don't recall if I did.
I'm sharing now. http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org It's a top notch site. I've been reading the materials.
What's ironic is I just was guided by Spirit to buy this book: Crooked: Man-Made Disease Explained: The incredible story of metal, microbes, and medicine - hidden within our faces.
