Awakening & Doing What I Love
By Penny Johnson | Published: January 1, 2010
My journey started when I was finally ready to start a master’s program. I knew there would be changes. I’ve had people ask me if I thought they would enjoy taking intuitive classes. I always respond: “If you like your life the way it is, it will definitely change once you start taking intuitive classes. You won’t be the same person that you were.”
Yes, we change and grow, but the relationships that we value might not be there any more. Just because we are changing doesn’t give us the right to make other people change. Especially if they’re happy the way they are.
My day job started to get more and more affected by the economy as it started to spiral out of control. I knew when I started my master’s program that I might not be able to stay in the corporate arena. I was getting closer to completing my classes. I was reading a book for one of my classes on near-death experiences, and suddenly had a person show up at one of the expos to tell me about his near-death experience and how it changed his life. It was so spiritually weird, in a good way.
I was starting another class on manifesting, about energy shifts, and again the synchronicities appeared. I would think about something and it would show up in about three days. I had known that my day job was going away. What I didn’t realize was how bad the economy had begun to get. It’s much easier to be objective if you are living it, rather than only observing it.
When my day job finally bit the dust, I was stunned for about two days — and then I was incredibly happy! If I could have done cartwheels, I think I would have! I felt so light! I had been feeling lighter when I was away from my job, and when I would have to go back, I would feel heavy and anxious.
I am trying to see what will be open to me. I have started to write things that I love to write for myself. I have started to enjoy my solitude, and really enjoy when I make a meal for myself.
Not sure what the future holds? That’s the funny thing about us psychics. Even we go to other psychics, to get a different perspective. I was told that I would be able to do my work full time? We’ll see? I’m almost done with my studies — and boy, am I ready to be done. I have loved the journey to getting here!
I do love doing what I do, and my clients are always so incredible. I am incorporating more healing into my practice and I’m getting very excited about that. I find that it really is true that sometimes we are the teacher and other times the student. It will be incredibly interesting to see where I end up. I know better than to say that I want “x” because I will usually end up with “z.”
You can have your plan, but sometimes that destination has other things to teach you.
