Sharing Visual Gifts

I went back and tried to re-create the orby thing on in a photo, but couldn’t.  I took dozens of pics from  the same spot,  same  angle, same  lighting,  same  everything. Nothing. Visible only in this one photo, which  was the first I took. I also, thinking maybe it was humidity, took several pics outside in the moonlight and in the shadows. Nothing.

The Long-Awaited Honest-to-God Secret to Being Happy

Last year, we had quite a few healing sessions in this room where orbs were seen by at least 3 different people while I sat and pouted because “I’m not visual” and I felt deficient as a High Priestess for not having that particular talent. I used to feel somewhere between hurt and  mad when people who could see things in the Ether would insist that I was supposed to see them, too. As if I either hadn’t asked for the gift or didn’t know what to look for or there was something wrong with me. I understand that it was something  wondrous  they wanted to share, hence their exuberance,  but it was frustrating  to me to be told that I’m supposed to be seeing things that I don’t.

At least for the time being, I don’t. I’m still not visual when it comes  to seeing things walk in the Ether. I experience  them  in  other  ways,  usually  through  my  empathic nature. And when I am “visual” now, it’s through dreams, meditations,  and flashes. Those  have increased steadily  over  the  past  year,  especially  the  most  recent months, so maybe I will be as adept one day as many others. I don’t drive myself crazy wishing for it or trying to attain it.

After all, I have lots of other gifts.

And maybe my camera is a just different way of seeing the same thing so it can be shared.
