Personal Update

Hey Everyone.

Finished 3 weeks of the massage therapy course and I love it.

Had my first few solo one hour massages.  I hear clients' deep breathing now and want to giggle!  It's like their silent approval.

Student business cards and more ads will follow once I get confidence and skill up.

I had an interesting Lenormand reading to check on possible progress in the course this month:
Sun + Man + {Tree} + Stars + Child

I chose the Tree as the massage course ( health, healing).
In my journal, I made notes for each card and pair.

Sun + Man: leadership, praise, taking the initiative (marketing, learning new routines, organizing room)
Stars: can represent the skin, guidance, shining inspiration
Child: small, starting out
Stars + Child: someone with a gift, some small gains in the right direction

How literal the cards were hit me the next day after glancing over them again.
Skin and Touch- a vital part of a therapist's skill.
Feedback has been great, including from my first non student client.  I have a scheduling account and will design cards.  I'm tracking down new routines to learn and use

Collecting Meditations

Happy Friday all.
I'll be starting massage therapy training on Monday.  In addition to two part time jobs and online shops.

Tarot readings may have to be put on hold- we will see.

It also means I need to use my free time wiser.  To remain sane, productive and in a healing frame of mind I want to meditate regularly.  Actively grounding, centering and otherwise working in this state has been lost to me for a while and I'm starting back up.

So, on the hunt for good downloads to burn.  Below are some sources I've found- but I would love to see yours!

Daniela at Thinking Bliss has several guided meditations with purpose- like accepting change, love and attracting abundance.

Explore Meditation has a bunch to stream.

Meditation Oasis- loads of podcasts on all kinds of meditations and how to articles.

Also of interest...
