Happy new week everyone!

I am actually writing this up on Friday this time because I have a jam packed weekend coming up. Not any one thing, but lots of appointments which will distract me from this. lol
This has been the first time in a long time that I've had a whole weekend book up on me like this and I love it.

I had a very special moment yesterday that I wanted to share with you. To preface this story though, you need to know that for me, doing this work, it's a rare thing when I don't ending up feeling like a friend with whoever I read or do reiki for. Especially my regulars. I like to say that all of y'all talk to me about things you would never tell your bartenders if you went to the bar. (That's only a slight exaggeration.) That kind of trust creates a bond.

So to the younger ones of you who come to me, I end up feeling like the Auntie, the ones of you who around my age (33 for the 21st time), I end up feeling like a friend or sister, and the ones who have more experience in life than me, well....I just feel lucky and honored that they want to interact with me for a reading.

Now that you know that, I'm going to add to your information about me this: I was never physically able to have children safely. For me that was a big loss because I dreamed of having 5 children when I was younger. It literally took me decades to come to terms with that.
Several years ago, 2012 or 2013, I had a reading from some students at the Boulder Psychic Institute, one of the things that was brought out in that reading was that I would have kids but not biologically, children of another kind. Even at that time, I could see that in my work and my clients because I have always tried to be genuinely helpful, even from the very beginning of my career in this field.

Having that background information, I had a younger person come to me for a reading, and then decide that they also wanted me to mentor them privately. In fact, this person is the reason I put mentorship services on my web-site originally. We had mentorship phone calls regularly for several months. During that time she started calling me Mom, saying that I was her mom when it came to understanding spiritual things. I took it as an honor. Then she just sort of fell off the radar for a while. (In this line of work, usually if someone falls off the radar for a while, it's a pretty good bet that they're doing well.) There was the occasional text but no more mentoring for the last year or so. Yesterday we had a phone call because she wanted to book a birthday reading. I got to hear about all the things that she's doing in her life and in her work. She's not doing the same thing I do for work. Many times people who are very intuitive aren't called to do this as work, and that's ok. The work that she is doing though, is having a profound impact on multiple families and individuals. After hearing about the exciting things she is doing in her work world, I mentioned how proud I am of her. She's come a long way from our early psychic mentoring days.

That was when they told me: "I couldn't have done it without you, Mom." As they elaborated on that a little bit, I almost started crying.

I always try to think of the effect that I'm having on my people. I'm always hoping to impact them in a way that it will create a positive ripple effect. That the decisions and the attitudes that they have when they are finished with their time with me, will be such as to make them a positive influence on the people around well to create that ripple effect wherever all my people are in the world. I always thought that I would never know about the ripple effect and how much impact it really had or hadn't made in the big picture. I thought that would be nothing that I could know until after I pass, and maybe in my life review it would come out.

Really I still only just got a glimpse of it in that conversation. I got enough of a glimpse of it to know that it's happening. Having that little bit of validation really felt sweet to me.

Sometimes clients are challenging, in this industry just as much as any other. I can honestly say that I have the best clients in the whole wide world. And I can also honestly say that mixed right in with those, are a handful of ones that started off very challenging to work with. Over time I've seen every one of them become a delight to work with. It's been my humbling honor to witness the journey.

This person that I mentored was never at that challenging level, but it didn't matter. They reminded me yesterday, without even trying to, that there is a bigger picture, and that I'm contributing to it by everything that I say or do. It's not always easy to hold good energy for people. Sometimes I have to remind myself of the ones who seem to have transformed very slowly before my eyes into someone who is peaceful, and in touch with themselves to keep my patience. That's one of the reasons that I don't want anyone to put me on some kind of platform in their mind.

I'm just a human. I can be impatient and frustrated and even depressed sometimes. We all can.

Having that little glimpse of a ripple effect though, wow, that reminds me just how much it's all worth it, and just how much each of us finding our own peace, finding our own love, brings peace and love to those around us.

Everyone who is in chaos just wants to find their own peace and their own love. What if they just don't know how yet?

I guess I have rambled a little bit all over the place here today. But I think the bottom line is that someday, a long time from now, I want someone to inscribe on my tombstone "she was the grandmother to many who sought and found their own peace and their own love."

That would make me happy.

Each of you are navigating your journeys here on this planet in amazing and wonderful ways! Thank you so much for allowing me the honor of crossing paths with you as we do! I appreciate each of you. :)

Topic of the Week
The topic this week has to do with the idea of slowing down of messages back and forth with someone or with general communication giving us a chance to rehab some self esteem issues or revitalize our energy moving forward.

This should be interesting.

Remember to check not only your sun sign, but also your rising and your moon sign to get a more full & layered picture. :)

Aries: It looks to me here like you are the person who is taking control and more or less initiation this quiet time for yourself to rejuvenate. I think the quiet your are bringing in has to do with someone who is not so much truthful, but also can be very sarcastic and cutting. It seems that you are just not up for dealing with that this week. You, my dear friends, have much better things to focus on, things that you love and enjoy. You are making those your priority this week.
(February 21)
Online Workshop

Billet is a French word for note or letter. To read billets is to take a sealed envelope and read about it’s contents without opening the envelope. Reading Billets is a practice dating back to the 1800’s. 

In this workshop Amista will facilitate as you explore your own psychic abilities in a way that is a lot of fun.

Who is this workshop for? 
1. People who don’t know if they are psychic or not but think it would be nice to know if they are. 
2. People who already know they are psychic or have strong intuition and would like to explore that a little further. 
3. People who are experienced in following their intuitive/psychic abilities and want to exercise their “psychic muscle” in a collaborative way that is safe and lots of fun. 
4. Open minded people looking for something fun and interactive to do that has the possibility of broadening their horizons.  

This workshop is happening on February 21, 2024 at 11:35am Mountain Time, 12:35 Central, 1:35 Eastern, 10:35 Pacific

Registration fee is $20.08

Registration fees are non-refundable. 
Taurus: This quiet that shows up as a revitalizing force for you this week feels like a breath of fresh air and some relief. It may be that you are making time to meditate or focus on some other spiritual practice this week. Whatever exactly you are doing with this quiet time, it gives you a chance for a new, happiness making beginning which your intuition is leading you to.
Gemini: It looks like your quiet time, for most of you, comes from getting away for a short trip. While you are away, you are taking some downtime and giving yourself permission not to work for a bit.
Cancer: It looks like this quiet time gives you a chance to focus without distraction on standing up for yourself and for what should be. I see you being disappointed at the quiet, but it seems to be a blessing in disguise, allowing you to stand up for yourself and grow in your own self esteem while no one is around to distract you or to make you second guess yourself.
Leo: It looks like the quiet time we see this week is coming from a place that you expect to hear more from. Even though this quiet is offering you a shot at revitalization, you are not seeing it as an acceptable situation. It looks to me that this quiet time continues for more than just this week. The longer it goes on, the more sure we are that you are determined to let this situation fall by the wayside and move forward.
Virgo: This quiet time that is showing up this week looks like it allows you to move forward with some kind of leap of faith around some new responsibilities which you are thoroughly enjoying. At the same time we see you really enjoying getting to spend some sweet time communicating with someone you love or communicating about love....possibly both.
February 21, 5:30 to 7:00pm

Date: January 17th, 2024
Time: 5:30 to 7:00pm

Libra: It looks like this quiet time that you could be using to regenerate yourself leaves you with so many options that instead you are letting yourself be overwhelmed by it. We see you holding back from doing anything much to make yourself feel better because you feel like you aren't in control of this time right now. Of course, this is one of those times when we would like to change that energy up. The recommendation when you feel yourself holding back is to try really focusing on what is happening in this moment, and how can you best utilize this quiet time for yourself. Then go for it!
Scorpio: What shows up here is that we are taking the leading on the slowdown of communication this week. There are some things that we are doing with other people that make us feel very happy and satisfied. It seems that for us to do that in an undistracted way, we may be going so far as to turn the electronics off for a little while to be able to find that escape.

Sagittarius: It looks like you have been handling some communication which you have not been appreciated for even though what you were doing was definitely helpful to others as well as yourself. Because of that you are committing yourself to some time to take care of you to rejuvenate and get your energy back.
Capricorn: It looks to me like you are slowing down some communication between yourself and someone else because you don't want to do anything more for them until they repay you for what you have already done. It seems from that last card, that this turns out to be an effective tactic as you get at least part of what is owed you before the end of the week.

Happy Birthday Aquarians!

Please accept as my birthday present to celebrate you, a 40% discount towards a live reading as long as you order it from me while the Sun is in Aquarius! (This does not have to be in person to be live, this also counts towards online or phone readings.)

Call, text or WhatsApp me to schedule your discounted reading for your birthday season.
Aquarius: Veeeeery similarly to Aquarius, it looks like you are slowing down the communications because it's the logical thing to do. It seems to be that someone thinks they can draw you into doing things without paying you at all for your efforts and you aren't going for that anymore.
Pisces: It looks like your slowdown in communication allowing for your rejuvenation is coming about because you have chosen to focus more on the things that make you happy and not to spend so much time on the meaningless trivia that had previously enmeshed you.
