Does chronic illness impact my ability to do readings?
The simple answer is – no. Chronic illness does not impact my ability to do readings.
Why? I honestly feel it is because readings come from an energy place that is of my higher spiritual self. Most information comes from my guides, your guides, angels, etc. and so long as my spiritual self is there, and all our guides are willing and ready to give a reading then we are good to go.
99% of the readings I do are typed and emailed. This frees me up physically so I can do them when I have the most energy to do them. You might notice, when you order a reading, I say you will have it by a set day at night – like by Monday night 1/14/19. Interestingly my energy is best at night. I was born at night and so I believe there is some correlation there. So you may receive your reading in the wee hours of the night/morning that would still technically be considered that day. Sometimes I have energy first thing in the morning, but it is rare and short lived.
The above is why I don’t tell anyone a specific time I am going to do their reading. If I am not feeling energetically like it is the right time, or if I am feeling physically awful, then I will wait until later in the day (usually at night). It is also why I love doing them via email. It is so much freer than strict time constraints – not just as mentioned but also there is no time limit as to how long I can spend doing your reading. And how I feel physically comes in waves. So while I may feel awful one minute, an hour or so later I might be better. It really comes in waves and varies greatly throughout any given day.
I am happy and grateful that I can provide help through readings and I thank my guides after each one I do.
Got a question you want to ask me (that isn’t a reading) – email me!
I am reading a book called “When Someone you Love has a Chronic Illness” – but I am reading it being the person with chronic illness.
The reason I bought the book (actually 3 of them) was because of a chat me and my fiancé had. Though I have been dealing with chronic illness for upwards of over 14 years and might be closer to 20 years with it worsening over time; it never completely dawned on me how my illness could impact others. I tell people all the time that I don’t want help, I don’t want them to feel bad for me, etc. but I guess it doesn’t work that way. When people care about us and love us, they are impacted by the chronic illness too. I guess it wasn’t something I wanted to consider because I never want the problems I have to affect those I love, care about and those around me. But it does.
After doing some research, I found a great little book called “When Someone you Love has a Chronic Illness”. In the reviews, I found many reviews from people who are the patient, the one with the health issues, and they found the book helpful. I am nearly done reading the book and have found it very helpful so far. In addition to my reading it, I gave a copy to my fiancé and my father.
Revelation #1 was that even though I am miserable sometimes and I don’t want others to be miserable (I would rather they ignore me and how I feel), it isn’t the case. They care about me and love me and they worry and sometimes feel bad, anxious, etc. And talking about it and finding ways to cope are helpful. I am sorry my health problems cause suffering in others.
Revelation #2 was that I am apparently supposed to be moving more, exercising more, etc. I say I am damned if I do and damned if I don’t. I end up in pain either way. If I do too much though, I am in trouble – and in trouble for a few days. If I don’t do enough, over a couple of days, I am also in trouble. But the point of this revelation is that if I don’t do enough, long enough, I will end up in even deeper trouble. So I gotta get moving. Not too much though.
I have found that if I wear a fitness tracker (Garmin Vivosmart 3 and 4 are my go-to’s because they also monitor stress) I can be fine getting around 5,000-7,000 steps per day. More than 7,000 can cause me pain for about a day, but if I am consistent, at getting more than 7,000, then I am okay. But if I have a few days of less than that and break the cycle, I am in trouble. If I get around or more than 10,000 I am in trouble for a few days. If I get around 12,000-13,000+ I can’t move well for several hours and then I am in trouble for days after that. So I guess finding balance is key.
With the stress of the holidays over, I can now start becoming more mindful of my exercise (which I am now realizing is important, after reading this book). Stress kind of kills me too, and so it took me a couple weeks to recover from the holidays. But I am bouncing back and just about ready to get moving.
I am thinking by the weekend I will be ready to give it a go and aim for 5,000 steps per day. Also adding in some minutes on my Gazelle elliptical and doing some weight/resistance training. My other goal would be to start doing yoga again and actively taking time to meditate. But first, I will start with the steps.
