Thelma And Anna – A Love Story

In meditation I always receive life-changing messages. The more I meditate the more messages I get and the faster my expansion moves along. Tonight was no exception.

Tonight I was reminded that Spirit has given me a lifetime of training as a Medicine Woman.

I could never describe the visuals of my meditation tonight and maybe it isn’t important to you anyway, but I was taken back to the time I was developing and running a designated unit for Alzheimer’s Dementia patients. Specifically, two of my old patients presented themselves tonight.

Thelma and Anna. These were two wheelchair bound women who met in this nursing home, but became fast friends in their later stages of dementia. Up and down the hallway in tandem they would flow down the corridors. They weren’t even roommates, these two, but during the daytime hours they were never separate. They even ate together. When they did become separated for personal care or something they were always calling for each other. To hear the ache in each of their voices as they called their counterparts name.

For whatever reason, Anna called Thelma, Helen, and Thelma called Anna, Annie. They never wavered from these names, despite their ‘forgetting diseases’.

Thelma and Annie were my original Thelma and Louise. I loved having them in my groups and just sitting one on two with them having cups of tea and conversations of a sort.

Then Annie died.

Thelma became the one desperately roaming the hallways calling her friend’s name. It was beyond heartbreaking now, it was spirit breaking.

There is so much illusion in Alzheimer’s and Dementia, but Thelma and Annie found their way through it, just like we can find our way through the illusions of this Earthly life experience. Thelma and Annie were stripped of their egos, their histories and their ‘accomplishments’ by this dreadful disease. All they had left was their higher selves and Love. Perhaps Annie even knew Thelma’s ‘higher’ name was Helen…

Even when separated in death, Thelma continued to expect her friend to be present. She knew to call for her. She didn’t just forget her. Do you GET that? She didn’t forget her friend even though she had a ‘forgetting disease’. It took her a long time to stop calling for Annie. Eventually she did stop, though. I like to think its because she found her again, in the space within.

That’s what I was reminded of in the meditation today. That the things we seek are within. We are never truly separate from one another…not when they move across country or even when they transition to another state like death. We can find whatever we’ve lost in the space within us. Sometimes its hard to do on your own, though which is why the Universe has given me such amazing experiences to draw wisdom from and share with my clients as a modern day Medicine Woman.

Thanks Thelma and Annie.

I love you. So much.

How To Get Through Recent Emotional Storms

20634261798_657dba9441_oI’ve only flown on an airplane a handful of times in my life and while most of them have faded from memory two stand out. The first one was my trip home from Disney Land bringing back a Minnie Mouse stuffed toy the size of me. The second one I remember was more epiphanic.

I was in my twenties and traveling alone. It was dark, stormy and there was question whether the flight would be cancelled, but in the end we were cleared for take off. It was as dark as night and raining hard. I had a window seat and watched the lights on the runway fly past as we left. I kept watching out that the window as we ascended and something miraculous happened. We ascended through the storm clouds and in seconds the sun was so bright I had to squint and there was no rain.

Below me I could see the entire storm system. It looked like a floor of clouds.

It had never occurred to me before that moment, that the sun would not be affected by the storm. I hadn’t really examined my thought around it before, but I suppose I imagined the clouds going all the way up to the sun (even though now that makes no sense).

There are moments when you realize that concepts of your childhood have overstayed their welcome by limiting your experiences. This was one of those moments for me. Decades later and I am still learning from that realization. It applies to so much more than even I first imagined.

The sun is always shining. It is never not on fire, never not glowing, never not illuminating, never not radiating, never not warming…never not alive. Things like night, storms, clouds, rain etc…are all temporary and capable of changing our experiences, but they are not our truth. The truth is that above the storms, even the worst of them, the sun is still shining and we just need to rise above to see it.

I have met countless individuals recently who are experiencing such emotional turbulence and the one thing they all have in common is not knowing why its happening. These are individuals dedicated to spiritual practices and positive mindset work, so what’s going on?

Many of those currently on spiritual journeys are also energy sensitive (and might not know it) and are picking up/filtering the energy of planet. I don’t think its a coincidence that many of those I am speaking of live in the United States and Canada, picking up on the anxiety and depression caused by the mass conflict in the US.

Is it really coincidence that Hurricane Harvey isn’t even a memory yet while Hurricane Irma hurtles towards our shores, followed by Jose and Katia and now an earthquake?!?! I don’t think so. We (every thing in the Universe and even the other Universes) are all connected. Every person, animal, plant, soil, cloud and star is connected as one, so it stands to reason that our collective energy can affect the weather as well as one another. What could be more symbolic of the emotional storm clouds that the United States has been under for the past year? The division, the anger, the discrimination, the hatred, the intolerance, the inhumanity, the violence – what else could we have manifested but hurricanes and earthquakes…one…after…another?

While this can feel overwhelming as we are pummeled with the relentless surge of depression and anxiety, we need to remember that if ‘they’ (they being those participating in the angst) can affect us, then we can affect ‘them’ too!

Abraham Hicks refers to The Vortex, where the vibrations of our thoughts, feelings and actions contribute in order to create our lives (ok, its really hard to exactly describe that concept!) Others refer to connecting to Source. Still others speak of raising your vibration. That’s all well and good unless you have no idea what that means or how to do it.

This is where the storm metaphor comes in.

The Sun represents Source, The Highest Vibration or The Vortex as you will. It is always there no matter what we can see from our vantage. It is Truth. The storm clouds, thunder, lightening, blackness and even nighttime represent the challenging times in our lives. They are temporary illusions if you will, as they give the appearance of separating us from the sun, but if you raise yourself high enough you find the Truth, that the sun is never blackened out, we are only disconnected from it – and even that is an illusion.

Now, when the storm rolls in we can imagine that the storm will go on forever, or we can remember that the sun is shining above it and we just need to realign ourselves to the truth of what is Permanent rather than fear the temporary illusion of the storm. When we are in the storm we can feel the fear or we can feel the reassurance of knowing that we can depend on the Truth that the sun is still shining and we just need to wait for a break in the clouds.

So, if you are one of the sensitive ones who is feeling the hurricanes of depression and anxiety ‘out of the blue’, try to remember to connect with Source. Rise above the storm clouds of emotion and tap into the Unconditional Love that we are created from and you will begin to feel some relief.

For me it helps to visualize rising through the storm, like I did that day on the plane and plugging myself into the Sun, recognizing it as the Highest Vibration. I imagine myself connected by a chord that feeds me that vibration directly into my being and working on my behalf while I am in the midst of temporary storms.

Be well. Be safe….and if you need me you know where to find me.

Love,
Jade
