This letter represents exactly WHY I blog. My intention is that what I write may touch the right person in the right moment with the right note. I don’t expect it to reach thousands, just those who are led here naturally.
Yesterday morning the first email I read was from Nancy Wood, Oklahoma City. She had just spent a very rough night. Her email was a great! way to start my day. I asked her to recount it here and she responded with a heart felt YES. Here it is – a night, and morning in Oklahoma City.
Hello, All — I’d like to share with you the Magic and Serendipity and Blessing that visited me a couple of nights ago in the person of our wonderful hostess here, Trish Scott, and to recount how her lovely heart, beautiful energy, knockout wisdom, and oasis of a blog rescued me in a moment of real need… So here’s my thank-you note to her:
Dear Trish: I want to thank you for coming to my aid so beautifully tonight… I’m a Conscious Creation person, so I won’t go into the story except most briefly and superficially… I’m in Oklahoma City, and we brought upon ourselves yet more tornadoes this night, and a puppy across the alley from my house was left out in it all (high winds, driving rain, thunder and lightning, etc.; and when I discovered that inhumanity, deep feelings of empathy, sympathy and raging helplessness exploded bigtime within me)… So I found myself wide awake at 3am, bawling my face off, and entreating the Universe, my Inner-Higher-Self, Seth and Abraham and Jerry, Bashar, Cinderella, St. Francis, your Benny (although I didn’t know it at the time), and anyone else who cared and could possibly help, to Please Do So!… and thus I got online and was led to you and your lovely blog post — “It’s Tough Being an Empath,” posted on October 29, 2009.
I love your face. I glommed onto your warm, wonderful smile instantly and felt better, instantly. The more I read, the more I was thrilled to discover how many similarities there are between us (I am/was a military brat… feeler… breather… dog person and nature person… writer… and I’m sure there’s more…) and the more I read from your “new blog” as well as your archives, the better I felt… and this, to me, is saying a great deal, because, as a counselor myself and long-time student and proponent and blabbermouth about “this stuff” (creating our own realities and the point of power is in the present, Law of Attraction, focus-on-what-you-want-and-not-on-what-you-don’t-want, yatta yatta), I admit (with as much humility as I can possibly and gratefully muster) it’s rare to find others to whom I can go for real, effective solace, comforting, counseling. Yes, of course there’s my intention to learn from every moment and every experience, and there’s also the reading of books (so many wonderful hearts and minds sharing out there), but I mean the kind of “in the moment,” authentic, down-to-earth, real-time, effective sharing of the kind you’ve offered (and, frankly, it was also the video of your Benny so preciously hopping and sniffing around in that gorgeous Utah scenery that REALLY sealed the deal and popped me back into the Vortex fast! ☺)
Oh, there’s so much more to the story, of course, but that’s not my intent here… my intent is to say, as simply and yet as deeply as I can, THANK YOU — on so many levels. And bless you… and Brava, and You go, girl!, and You Are The Dearest Thing, and How Wonderful You Are, and Goody, goody, goody!!!, and — as I know you will understand — ‘In Lak’Ech’… “I am another You.”
I’ve eagerly signed up to receive updates to your blog (even though I’ve been, out of extreme necessity, un-subscribing right and left lately to simplify my life and input thereto), and I’m looking forward to meeting up with you and your energy and your wisdom and your sharing whenever you reach out. And I will be in touch further, when things come up, to ask your assistance with this or that of the moment. It’s just so wonderful knowing you are there…
Thank you, thank you, thank you, Trish.
Most sincerely and appreciatively,
Nancy E. Wood
