oooh, i almost forgot

a while back i told you about this fab fun opportunity of being a Gypsy for a party!

i didn't have a chance yet to fill you in on my Gypsy Night! it was a great success. the birthday girl mailed me to tell me that it was her best birthday ever! - she always has fancy dress parties for her bday! i'm so glad that i made her smile. there were so many people that came to see me, who i did 'readings' for, and it was wonderful giving people new hope.

what i learnt that night?

  • we all want reassurance that there really is a silver lining
  • most people want someone just to tell them 'it's going to be ok'
  • some want a simple smile and a reassurance that they're on the right path
  • figuring out where we are, often sheds light onto where we're going
  • change is hard, even when we know the right thing to do
  • feeling like someone understands is empowering -- then you don't feel so alone
  • telling people that they are so much more than their jobs, relationships, being a mother, being a son, being a wife, being a pilot, and so much more than who they perceive themselves to be, changes the way they think and see themselves
  • we all need someone to talk to and to listen who does not know us, who can be non judgmental, honest and positive

i really didn't tell anyone anything they didnt' already know, but the clarification of where they are in their lives and that the future looks bright and positive gave them a sense of hope. and isn't that what we all want... a sense of hope?

it was really nice, makes me wonder if i should start my own 'practice' from home like i wanted to years ago... something like lifestyle management, as i have my psychology honours and love helping people.

Sounds like you gave people hope and a good feeling, which, as you say, is all we really want. And it sounds like it was good for you too!

it was kitty - coz it gave ME a sense of hope too and also realised that we all have something that we're working thru, it just presents itself as different "issues" and things depending who we are and what path we're walking! I'm off to your blog now.. hope you posted ;p
