I’m at Serenity Farm in Virginia this week facilitating group and private Family Constellations sessions. Last week when I saw the snowflake icon on the weather forecast for Monday in Richmond, VA I was not jumping for joy. I grew up in Upstate New York and graduated from Syracuse University, so I’m no stranger to snow. However, I have lived in Florida for the last 25 years and during that time I have not missed the snow or cold winters one tiny bit. Not only was I not looking forward to the colder temperatures this week, but I was concerned that the snow would make it difficult or impossible for clients to get to Serenity Farm from the city.
When I woke up on Monday morning there was no snow on the ground. It seemed the forecasters had overestimated the chance for snow. Then around 11 AM, little white flakes started drifting down outside the windows during my first private session. At first it was just a few flakes, but they were joined by lots of flakey friends quickly. It started coming down so fast that by the time we were done with the session the grass was no longer visible and all the trees and bushes had a light dusting of snow on them. Luckily, the snow was not sticking on the roads yet so my client was able to get home without any trouble.
I have to admit the snow was beautiful. There is something very peaceful about snowflakes falling all around you, especially when you are out in nature. Serenity Farm is nestled among the woods on all sides with beautiful trees, large fields, a garden, and a pond. It definitely lives up to its name, and with the snow falling it felt even more serene. Over the weekend we had very powerful constellations where unexpected family dynamics were revealed leading to deep healing for all of the participants. The snow felt like Mother Nature’s way of clearing the energy of the land and blessing it with peace and tranquility.
I don’t think it was an accident that my hostess at Serenity Farm had invited Jane,the owner of Alchemists Books and Gifts for the Spirit in Richmond and her guest, William Brisson, who does space clearing and energy healing for a visit that afternoon. We were so happy that the snow did not prevent them from getting here. In fact, it sure felt like it made their first visit to Serenity Farm even more magical. The four of us had a wonderful conversation about the work we do and how we found the spiritual path as millions of snowflakes danced outside the windows. It was a great reminder for me that it’s all about perspective. The very thing that I was dreading turned out to be a magical gift!
Is there an event or situation in your life that you are dreading? I would be honored to help you see it from a different perspective with a Life Coaching session or series of sessions, or a private Family Constellations session. Both are excellent tools to help you change the way you look at things. As Dr. Wayne Dyer used to say, “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” Please look around my website for more information about these opportunities or send me an email to schedule an appointment in person, by phone, or via Skype.
Until next time, I invite you to be open to the possibility that the very thing you are dreading might be a blessing in disguise.
