That's the Spirit!
I learned through an experience with a psychic a long time ago that when you reach out for anything, you may be sure it's
reaching out for you, too. I learned that one day when I was trading publicity for a psychic reading.
The message I received when this really good psychic read for me that day was that there was "tongue in cheek" material that
I was writing that would sell. I had to think a minute when he told me that but when I realized which material was meant,
I promptly went home and finished up the sample columns. I sent them out. They did sell!
To continue the subject of my last column, if you've been searching for something liberating, a new interest, something that you
can hurl yourself into, something you can learn from (and anything we really put our energies into always teaches
us much), you may be sure it's waiting to come to you.
I'm sure you may realize that your liberating "search" may be different than your neighbor's. What you may not realize, is that
what you're searching for is waiting there just beyond this present reality for you, reaching for you, too. It may take a little time
to get to it; but you may be certain that it's there. In fact, I believe there's an entire journey waiting for you to make your way along it.
As Edgar Cayce, the Seer of Virginia Beach, assured us, each of us comes to earth with a soul mission.
I took a Cayce course several years ago that was designed to prepare me to achieve my own special mission in life.
A past life therapist I interviewed, Dr. Janet Cunningham, wrote a book about being reunited in this lifetime with persons she
believes she lived with in a former native American lifetime. Her book is called "A Tribe Returned." I mentioned previously in this
column that her logo is two hands reaching to the sky, fetters falling from each wrist, with the caption, "Breakthrough to the Unconscious."
Certainly, when we're held by phantoms of the unconscious, whether they be from the far distant past (like the ones her group of past
life native Americans shared), or whether it be from our childhood in this lifetime, or a happening as recently as a minute ago, we are still just
as fettered mentally as if our physical hands were tied. When one begins to feel pain from it, it's probably time to look at ways to untie oneself.
Several weeks ago on television news I watched a group of women dramatizing the fight for women's rights by acting out a play depicting
the highlights of the life of the famed women's rights activist, Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Several generations of her female descendants
appeared. Her teenage namesake looked into the camera and declared that if her grandmother hadn't fought for women's rights,
she would have. The dramatization was being enacted in what's considered the birthplace of the women's rights movement--
inside the actual shell of the old brick building where the first women's rights meetings were held.
I loved the fact that Elizabeth Cady Stanton's young namesake carries on her famous forebear's fight for freedom. If such things as this
make you feel the spirit moving in you--make you want to take on the lions and tigers of today's arena and fight for
your own freedom, or for someone else's, or for everyone's, do it!
Be your soul's own advocate. Find a group to workshop with or just a book to read and if you don't already know what your interests
are--just pick what seems right, work with it for a while, see where it leads, and, if it doesn't fit, try the next most likely thing.
Remember, whatever you are searching for is also searching for you. It's waiting for you to
bring it to fruition. Go for it. Revel in it. That's the spirit!

"I have been taking classes with Pat now for about seven months and my abilities have grown greatly. Before I started class
