Merry meet friends!
Michelle here, bringing lots of love and light!

Last Sunday I was to travel to Black Mountain, NC to attend the SEWW Herbal Immersion. I last attended in May of 2014 after I left Earthaven. I met some amazing women and was looking forward to reconnecting with some of them and some from the conference in October, 2014. The experience, for me, was life altering and I wanted to be in that vibrational energy once again. I knew the car I am using wouldn't make the 5-6 hour drive. I thought about renting a car but I needed to think of the expense, especially with the job situation.
My oldest son had a situation on May 24th, I didn't want to participate and decided not to do so. I prayed and meditated about attending the Immersion.. I knew if being at the Immersion was the plan, then somehow a way would be made. As much as I wanted to attend there was, however, a hesitance in my spirit. When Sunday came there was no solution forthcoming for me to attend the Immersion. I still was not planning to participate in my son's situation. On the morning of the 24th, I awakened knowing that my presence would have an effect in his situation. I went and it did.
Sometimes we don't know the why of a thing, we just know we must follow the leads given. We can call it a hunch, discernment, a still small voice or intuition. What we call it doesn't matter. It's what we do when we feel, sense or hear the "thing". Many times I have said, "Something told me to do or say that." I don't always immediately pay attention but I am paying attention more than I used to. Intuition will never lead one astray. It's easier for me to follow when I feel something as opposed to hearing something. I will, on occasion, think what I am hearing is me. In reality, it is GOD/GODDESS/ALL THERE IS as me.
Prayer and meditation is one way of getting the answers that are needed. Being still and listening helps us to understand ourselves better. Intuition, though, does not always wait for the stillness. It comes in moments we least expect it. Being attuned to Spirit will help us to recognize it when it appears and to pay attention. I'm glad that I paid attention to the sense and feeling I had pertaining to my son's situation. The Immersion is held every year and I will attend again. If the women I met before aren't there when I next attend, I will meet others. I didn't know those women before meeting them.
Intuition is what I need to trust when it comes to my job situation. I definitely need more income than SS if I am to keep this apartment. My lease is up at the end of September and the job is expected to last that long. Everyone has been applying for the jobs that are similar to ours as soon as they post. I have not felt led to apply as yet. Intuitively I feel as if I am not to apply. I have no idea why other than maybe Spirit trying to get me to work for myself.
Whatever the reason, if indeed it is my intuition, I want to follow it. I am interested to see where this path might take me. I would love to live in a tiny house and travel wherever and whenever I choose, working from my laptop. We shall see!
I've met someone who lives on his boat and is a fellow gypsy. I love his lifestyle. I applaud anyone who decides to take his/her life in hand and follow their heart. I feel the call of the wind beckoning me to follow. "Go with the flow", it's saying, "Let me blow you where I will." "OK", I answer, "soon very soon!"
Until next Sunday,
Merry part and merry meet again,
Gypsi Mama Michelle
