99% of my evenings are starting to turn into a routine. Clean up a little bit, e-mail a little bit, followed by some yoga, sorting through music while sipping cocoa mate (add some agave & soy, mmm deeelicious), cleaning up again, and close with some reading.
I love this routine though, it makes me happy.
So I went to "healing hour"and had an aura reading done earlier. Thanks to Kat-spot, she is the one who introduced me to the center where all this is performed...
During this "healing" session you sit in a chair while the 'healer' walks around you moving their hands, as if conjuring a spell, while you sit with your eyes wide open bewildered. But they're grounding you, supposedly making you feel closer to the earth and cleansing you of bad energies such as unhappy/unfriendly words directed at you. At least this is what one of the female healers told me right after mentioning I'm a natural as well as very clairvoyant. When I asked her to explain herself, she said I was a good judge of people and could instantly tell whether they had postive or negative energies. I brushed it off, others would just call that intuition. I had a total of four healders, the first and the last were the most interesting looking and provided for a cool experience.
I have personally never had any sort of psychic reading or aura reading, though they have never ceased to fascinate me. So I figured why not and dove into it. The walls were naked white with only one of the walls decorated with a picture of the ocean, there was also a plant, and four mini flower vases from IKEA. Lined up against one side of the wall were three psychics, one woman on the far left, in the middle a man, and to his right a funny looking man who slightly resembled that tall guy (brother?) from Everybody Loves Raymond who had crayons and paper with him with different circles/layers. He ended up drawing my color on the different layers as well as a few notes. I sit down, they all look at me for a minute before closing their eyes and going on a "let's tell you a story about yourself through pictures we can imagine" journey. Which is totally fine by me!
My only problem was I wanted to know who these people were just about the entire time I'm sitting there, the man in the middle (main psychic) and the woman closed their eyes the whole time. Coloring book guy had to keep them half open to color. I wonder where they started out doing this type of...work? or perhaps past time or even hobby. Did they have kids? The woman looked young but not young enough to go without having some lovely apartment with a dog. If I ever run into these people at a grocery store somewhere, what are you supposed to say?
The first half hour was dedicate to the reading of the different levels then in the second half hour I could ask anything I wanted. Which sounds a lot cooler than it really is because how do you ask a bunch of psychics a question without coming off as stupid or naive? Instead I went the "can you expand on this aspect of my life" or "could you tell me what this could lead to?" it was strange.
They were pretty spot on as far as pinning down my characteristics and tendencies. But that's all it felt like. They were just reading who I was through stories and pictures of different things. Even their answers were drawn out into long stories that could be a third as long and still deliver the same message. My communication professors would have been very disappointed.
Not a big deal, just pretty cool you could say.
Can you guess what color I was?
check out a description of ORANGE auras
taken from http://www.geocities.com/goddesslit/orangeaura.html
"They have an inner urge to be creative, active and enjoy life to its fullest. They are also individual and independent and integrate physical and mental qualities. They enjoy the challenge and excitement of forming and shaping physical reality. Orange personalities love to imagine and plan strategies for their next adventure or project and then put those plans into action. They need to be involved in the actual working process and want to physically shape and form their own ideas. They have difficulty sitting back and letting other people do things for them."
(This last part is pretty accurate)
After my refreshing experience I took a long walk before deciding I did not want to be alone, ending up at a friend's place then deciding I probably should be alone. Odd, I know. But sometimes it takes a couple of awesome, cool people in an incredibly sweet apartment eating burgers to convince you that you should be on your own and not interrupting or invading this particular scenario.
Two more days til Guate....
It hasn't really hit me yet, not til I start packing. Besides the work we'll be doing in San Lucas Toliman I'm really excited about traveling around with Julian. Long story short, Julian and I met during a high school retreat in Esopus, NY and pretty much bonded instantly. If we weren't so alike, we'd practically end up together. We both crave the same type of people, which is always interesting to look into when we are both dating someone. Anyways, I convinced him in less than an hour to come with me and buy his ticket one night when I couldn't sleep. This is why he's a cool friend, besides other important reasons.
Oh, before I forget. My mom has gone to a psychic long ago and whenever she tells me about her sessions she always refers to the psychic as a psycho, which I think is pretty cute.
