The following story of how Kim found my website and her reading truly describes how the soul leads us.
Kim's words: It was divine intervention. My dog's bed is near to my bookshelf and while walking by it one day last week, I noticed a book, The Artist's Way, had fallen (?) off the shelf and was situated prominently on the dog bed. Certain this was a suggestion that should not be ignored, I took the book to my room and began to read through it. I was leafing through the quotes and noticed the author of one was simply "The Magical Work of the Soul." Intrigued by this, I began an Internet search for that book or author or body of work and found instead Mary's website, The Work of the Soul, in the early search results. Happily detoured, I spent time reading about Mary, her approach, and enthusiastic testimonials. After hearing her voice (kind, warm, and compassionate), I decided to contact her and am so glad I did. That is how beautiful the universe can be, always supporting and directing (in subtle and sometimes not so subtle ways) ready students to their teachers.
I felt so wonderfully warm and inspired after my session. The process of writing to communicate with my own inner guidance was an interesting one to experience. Though I doubted my ability to do it, it seemed to come easily after taking that leap of faith into its possibility with Mary's guidance and encouragement. And everything that I received from it seems wise and useful. Another wonderful gift of my session was the introduction to my guardian angel. Mary saw her at the beginning of our session and commented on how beautiful she was and said that she was there to help and guide but needed to be asked to do so. I have thought much on that since as it is important to remember to ask for help. I felt gratitude for her after being made aware of her presence. I asked Mary if she knew her name and Mary guided me to begin a dialogue with her myself and ask her name, which I did. Truly, that has been an ongoing gift from my session -- to remember that empowering place of connection to source and guidance we all have within. Below are some excerpts from the session. ~ Kim
