I am a Healer, Psychologist, educator and Sound Therapist with an avid interest in consciousness and transpersonal experiences. Oh and did I mention Astrology?
The Work has been Done for You!
Sometimes I feel that life is an uphill battle with responsibilities that I never asked for being placed on my shoulders. I am sure most people have felt this at times. I usually forget to ask for help and assume the load myself which of course is not a very positive way of dealing with situations.
Today I was walking in the woods and decided to visit a place that I feel is sacred. I wanted to give thanks. Over the Easter holidays children had built a camp here and had completely covered the tree stump that I love so much. I had removed some of the branches on a previous occasion which was quite hard work. I now felt it was time to go and relieve the tree of the rest of its burden and reveal its beauty to the world once more.
Imagine my relief when I approached the tree stump to find that it had been totally cleared and was indeed shining in its true glory. The branches and undergrowth had been removed and reused to build a larger, more impressive camp just a few yards away.
I was able to stay for some time and just enjoy the sun glinting through the leaves of the surrounding woodland and breath in the gentle breeze. There had been some damage to my sacred tree stump but it bore the wounds well and various creatures were making their homes in the holes and crevices. A seed was also sprouting out of the top; a delicate vibrant green shoot promising new life.
I felt I had been given a lesson in 'allowing' and could really appreciate that the work had been done for me! It was as if the tree was telling me to take time out from carrying burdens on behalf of others and realise that help is always at hand. More often than not that help comes from the unseen in unexpected ways. Be more open, more accepting and allow that support to come into your life, not just today but everyday!

I'd like to hear more about how your view of astrology fits into your work as a psychologist?
thanks for asking Michael. Psychology has a battey of tests in order to 'label' people. With astrology it is much simpler, The chart speaks volumes and can rapidly cut to the chase. I often see the situation that a person is facing quite clearly designated in the chart and am able to navigate around that using the innate skills/ talents and resources that the person has to counteract any negative effect. Using astrology there is also the ability to give rough time scales for how long a situation may last which can be very helpful too. Obviously astrology is a form of divination and as such it is a road map of potential, it is not the same as getting in the car and driving the route with all the unexpected events that produces, Whilst the signs and planets indicate the innate nature of the person, the houses designate the areas of life within which those traits are most likely to be active but also the areas of life that are most influential in shaping the character. A case of nature v nurture! We of course also all have free will and must act accordingly!
