No mom’s job is an easy one but today’s post is all about a typical day for me being a mom, a psychic medium AND having a psychic kiddo. I was inspired to write this as I stood over a cake that I wanted to make for my kids. They have no idea WHAT energy this one cake has taken and I have no idea WHY this cake has been such a feat for me today either, it came from a box. I guess I am like every mom out there who is too scattered, trying to juggle it all and wear the many hats required. Psychic or not.
I wake up naturally between 6:30 and 7:00 a.m. every morning, no alarm clock required. I have to get my child up at 7 and then we are off by 7:45. While he is busy getting ready, I normally take a few moments to sit in meditation before I start the day and then take some time to check my calendar and email to create a daily agenda. Easy stuff right? Yes, until your 10 year old comes down stairs with his own questions from the universe. Stuff that I don’t always know the answer to. I’m no expert on sacred geometry or astrology or astronomy for that matter but it never fails that he has been receiving lessons that he doesn’t understand yet. So on top of the daily agenda, I now have homework added by 7:30 a.m., no fair! Today’s lesson of the day was Solar Inspiration, which was actually pretty comical since I had pulled some cards for myself and ‘Inspiration’ was one of them. Also because tomorrow is the Lunar Eclipse.
I get my 10 year old baby off to school but before he gets out of the car, a complete melt down occurs because he forgot his homework. Tears are streaming and I see an opportunity to teach about responsibility here. He finally gets out of the car, face cleared up and I tell him not to let this little thing ruin his day, that I love him and life is good.
I get home and get started on checking emails to prepare for the day’s work ahead. It looks like I have a few readings to get done and I start on one. Such an extensive reading using Angel Cards usually takes me about 90 minutes to complete. As I am just wrapping things up, I get interrupted with phone call. This seems like a good time to start the cake. Here’s why you don’t try to do two things at once: I forgot to add water to the cake so as I’m stirring I notice it starts to become like a solid piece of chocolate. I realize I forgot the water, add it and all is well again. I start to get the cake into pans after greasing them down but then I remember that they need to be floured. Geez! Did I mention I’m not really a natural in the kitchen? I scrape the cake back into the bowl, clean the pans, re-grease and flour. I’m making this thing with love and my time is the only thing being taken due to it so life is well again. Even though it seemed there were some setbacks, I’ve actually had a very positive, connected day.
As the cakes are baking, I decide it is time to make a protein smoothie for lunch and get back to work. After 8 oz. of almond milk, a tablespoon of almond butter, 25g of chocolate protein and a 1/2 spoon of spirulina algae, me and my tasty lunch head over to my desk. It’s time to update my website (which took 70 hours of my precious time to learn to create), done. Time to edit a video meditation for youtube, almost done. Pull the cakes out, let them cool. Time to write a blog article, check my facebook messages, create a graphic for my page and now to frost the cakes. I pull out the one can of frosting I have and voila! A single finger has swiped from the icing. My 10 year old opened it, tasted it and then put it back like it never happened. Well, the icing goes in the trash. I’m going to talk to him about this when he gets home, if you’re gonna put your fingers in the icing, at least put the icing in the refrigerator. Ahhh, what can you do?
Now it is time to pick up the kiddo from school. It takes at least 20 minutes of waiting to scoop him up, so I find this is a great time to meditate, catch up on spiritual reading or listen to my favorite radio station. We go home, I forgot to grab more icing. It is time for homework and snacks. Most days, my work ends when the other half of my family comes home. This allows me to catch up on light housework and the nightly routines like dinner and baths. I live a pretty amazing life and for that I am so grateful. It’s really a lot like many other parents’ with the exception that I get downloads, messages and visitors that sometimes require my time but I really don’t mind. I love living a life of service to other people (both on the other side of the veil and this one). Before I worked at home, I worked in the military and as a hairdresser. Both jobs require you to be of service to others, reaching out to other people is just part of what serves my soul.
If I am not creating videos, sitting in college classes (which I am currently in twice a week), offering live meditations via teleconference, sitting in development circle, or preparing and planning classes that I teach, then I can be found doing yoga, laundry, writing my forthcoming book The Soundtrack of My Soul. My favorite pasttime’s are journaling, reading, watching Disney movie’s and football, and keeping deep and real connections with those in my circle, many who are 2500 miles away.
We are very busy people, as a parent too, I get it. Just remember that life is not ALL about doing, but being present in the moment. Today was a busy day, not stressful though because every part of my day I was ‘doing’ out of love. I take time for myself some days too, where I don’t get out of my jammies because they are soft and cozy and I just read or meditate. Tomorrow, it’s pedicure and massage day, complements of the hubbster. Me time is important as the movers and shakers of our families. Make sure if your schedule seems like this, with a splash of heavier load and a dash of stress added, that you take some time for yourself. My poor cake will be beautiful as soon I run to the store for icing, I even have sprinkles…
