My Intuitive Journey: Regular Direct Contact, Part I
“Miracles do not happen in contradiction with nature,
but in contradiction with what we know about nature.”
Last week, I brought you into my life midway through 2016, when I was stressed and found a new way to start my day—a way that had the unintended consequence of putting me back in regular contact with my guides.
This week, as promised, I’m sharing the first couple of journal entries in which I recorded messages from them. As much as possible, I present these without comment, as I think you experiencing the journey with me as it happened, without the benefit of hindsight, can be helpful.

Sometimes, things feel like they’re just falling into place. Found a recipe and affordable high-quality ingredients to try making my own eczema cream,1 and got advice from a friend about her own way (successful) at treating her & her kids’ eczema. Money slowly trickling in, even when I’m not getting big projects done. I’m getting more hours of work in each day now that Aidan’s taking a bottle and Mike can feed him. I seem to be led to just the right information to make the changes I need to get my body back in good working order (it’s what I’d asked the Universe for—well, set my intent for—for this month), so getting eczema to a lower level, preferably gone, taking better care of my teeth (a cavity developed in the past year while I lost my focus on my health, so filling it, brushing each day, flossing every day, using a fluoride rinse), getting better sleep, getting more fruits & vegetables back in my diet (had a hard time eating them when pregnant with Aidan, then a hard time finding time to fix them), trying to find where/how to fit in exercise again.
Also trying to get things done that have been put on the back burner since Aidan was born, like getting the cats to the vet for checkups and getting the house cleaned. Energy is moving the way I want it to, but it’s a bit tiring!

Yesterday at points, my back hurt tremendously, almost as if I had injured it. … Last night … I spent an hour and a half or so stretching slowly to try to loosen things, because both my lower back and my legs were randomly spasming slightly. …
This morning … I noticed my abdominal muscles below my first C-section scar were tender [and] … have tightness near my right shoulder blade, as I have had for a couple of weeks. …
I’ve been setting my intention for June to get my body back to being in good shape (“under control” is the phrase I have frequently used). I specifically had my eczema in mind, but, of course, the Universe doesn’t fulfill requests by halves.
Thus, while I was having my tooth drilled yesterday, expecting some discomfort, as I’ve had before, I mentally popped into my meditative/spiritual “home base” and asked for conversation to distract me, and when someone asked what I’d like to talk about, I said anything, and the guide/Self outlined a fully formed schedule/plan for me to improve my physical activity & productivity:
0500–0630 “Miracle Morning” (including exercise), shower, eczema cream, teeth
0630–0730 e-mail/work until kids wake
0730–1000 make & eat breakfast, get kids dressed
1330–1400 make lunch
1700–2000 make & eat dinner, get kids to bed
2000–2100 get ready for bed/relax/self-care (brush teeth, use eczema cream, floss …)
I am to exercise 5 times a week, using a 3 on/1 off/2 on/1 off routine, and on the days off, I am to walk around our property and weed, pick fruit/vegetables, or tend the land in any other way. This time outside will be a kind of physical exercise but will be focused mostly on my spiritual self-care. For the other five days, I can do any exercise I like, indoor or outdoor, videos or other plan, cardio or yoga or strength training—whatever I feel like.
The schedule may change a bit as Aidan develops, but it should hold fairly steady, and I can modify it.
I’m not to start this routine until July 1, as the rest of June is going to be busy and a little stressful, plus I have to use the time adjusting, getting myself up a little earlier each day. In July, work is going to pick up, and I will be very busy doing work for pay and preserving from our yard and garden(s). Busy time is coming, but it will be enjoyable and not as stressful as work has been for the past several months. Now is the time to center myself, to round myself, so I can move forward full of energy, confidence, and success.
Have any questions so far? Comment below or email me. I’ll probably turn the response into another blog post.
- I began having troubles with eczema in 2012 after my daughter was born, and it had gotten out of control after my son was born in October 2015; the itching kept me awake at night and left me distracted during the day. I later learned that it can be triggered by emotional stressors, as well as environmental.
