The Climb

A part of my great adventure this month was having the pleasure to visit Ireland. Coming off an emotional week in England where I was knee deep in 24/7 mediumship and self recognition, it was really hard to go to such a beautiful country and not be reflective.  In fact even just the color of the country had me mesmorized in the beauty this world holds.  During my stay in Ireland I visited MANY beautiful places and took MANY beautiful pictures and each one touched me in one way or another.  It is really hard to explain but my soul was doing some major transformation on this trip.  I have never felt closer to God, the spirit world, and myself.  No hint of anxiety, depression, or worry.  Just me and the beauty that surrounded me.  I had many conversations with myslef and I am sure my spirit team helped to facilitate some of that.  There were some things I needed my soul to hear and through that has come some incredible growth.  Since this blog is about my mediumship journey, let me share with you the magical experiences I had and the revelations that came to me through the incredible sites of Northern Ireland.

Day 2 of my stay we went to Cavehill to hike.  If you take a look at the top picture you can see the pathway of this “climb”.  Looks simple right?  HECK TO THE NO!  That was far from a simple climb for a girl from Little Elm, Texas with no regular hiking regim.  I remember looking up from the bottom of the hill and telling myself there is NO WAY i can get to the top.  Now, do you see what I just did right there?  I told myself it couldnt be done before I even started.  Self sabatoge?  Yes!  Exactly what I have done my entire adult life.  So do you think that may have an effect on my mediumship?  You betcha!  And this was the exact conversation that I was having with myself.  Then I remembered a song that I had heard back when I was at the mediumship college in England. At the time I heard it, it stuck with me but I wasn’t really sure why.  I ended up downloading it and wouldn’t ya know… was exactly what I needed to hear as I faced this “HILL” literally AND in my mediumship.

I can almost see it
That dream I am dreaming
But there’s a voice inside my head saying
You’ll never reach it
Every step I’m taking
Every move I make feels
Lost with no direction
My faith is shaking
But I gotta keep trying
Gotta keep my head held high
There’s always gonna be another mountain
I’m always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be a uphill battle
Sometimes I’m gonna have to lose
Ain’t about how fast I get there
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb
The struggles I’m facing
The chances I’m taking
Sometimes might knock me down
But no, I’m not breaking……
After reflecting and remembering those lyrics I decided to put those words into action. Instead of focusing on the end result, I just needed to focus on the present and take one step at a time.  And so I did. One step at a time, one foot in front of the other, never looking beyond each step and eventually through hard work, some struggle, and a few breaks, I MADE IT TO THE TOP!  So if I can do that for the “literal” mountain, then I need to do the exact same thing for my “mediumship” mountain. Stop focusing on the end result, stop worrying about whats nexts, stop trying to race to the top.  Instead just enjoy the journey of the climb.

And I, I got to be strong
Just keep pushing on

‘Cause there’s always gonna be another mountain
I’m always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle
Sometimes I’m gonna have to lose

Ain’t about how fast I get there
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb…….

In closing, as I had mentioned at the beginning of this post that there were MANY experiences that I had in Ireland and MANY pictures taken.  The second picture above was taken at Rope Bridge. It too has a special meaning to me because it really captures the essence of  “trust”. And like many other experiences, I know it was no accident that this photo was captured and that I was there to walk across it.  It was a very much needed lesson for me on this trip.  Like I needed to trust the bridge would hold me and not let me fall, I also needed to trust spirit in my mediumship.  It is the single thing that is holding me back and I needed desperately to be reminded that they will forever have my back and carry me through and not let me fall.  It amazes me everyday just how intellegent the spirit world is and if you take the time to connect the dots you can just see the magic in it all.  Feeling so very very blessed.

  1. What a lovely way of expressing your journey. I drew a card this week which showed a woman on a rope bridge. The last paragraph really resonates with me for many reasons. Thank you for writing and sharing. Love, Light and Laughter.
