It's wonderful that no matter how good or bad the previous year, we all have that surge of excitement and belief that this one will be better. My sincerest wish is that it truly will be for us all.
I am so grateful to all of you for allowing me to be a part of your life and to continue to do what I love. You have all made that possible as I enter my 27th year of doing metaphysical work...how does it get any better than that?!
When I started my business 27 years ago, there was a lot of stigma attached to the word "psychic". It seemed to evoke the energy of charlatan and cheat...not to mention the religious world's disapproval. I wanted to change that and began as professional and business like as I could. I joined local business organizations including the Chamber of Commerce and dressed to fit that world...well, aside from a couple of brooches and earrings that would make a drag queen entertainer swoon with envy...lol.
Because I began in a time of ridicule and prejudice, there were few opportunities for me to advertise. I began slowly, word of mouth, and accepted and embraced clients wherever and whenever they appeared. I have been deeply grateful and my business has flourished...but
Instead of HAVING a business, I have BECOME my business. I have blurred the lines between the two. I have been aware of this for some time, but it really hit home when I received several calls, texts and emails on Christmas needing attention( immediate readings or response)
As I enter my 27th year of business and just 2 years shy of my 70th birthday, I would like to extend as much kindness to myself as I strive to do for all of you. So, this year, I will not be open or available on holidays. I will, on occasion, take a day off without apology, guilt, or for pressing reason...it will just be a kindness to me.
Please don't interpret this that I no longer welcome the work ( I am writing this under a confusing and misunderstood Mercury retrograde), but it is hard to change things after they become expected or habit. So, help me along this year to stay true to my resolution.
Yes, I will still get up at odd hours to read for my clients in different time zones and countries. Yes, I will still have unconventional hours...it's one of the perks of having your own business...but I want to be respected and appreciated...a kindness to myself...
and to you.
Wishing you all the best you can imagine...as if by magic
