The Importance Of One's Name

Last year I wrote a post talking about names: What's In A Name?. This morning I had a dream that reminded me of not only this post but also of an experience I had at a job I worked at for nearly three years. Today it feels the right time to explain what had happened at that job and how I felt about it. 

Over the years, off and on, I've been a substitute teacher at local schools. This was always, or so it seemed, the perfect, flexible, fill-in job. Such a job works particularly well when I'm attending school, such as was the case when I was going to Fellowships Of The Spirit's (FOTS) "School of Spiritual Healing and Prophecy," from 2011-2012. 

This year I stayed working as a sub teacher even though at the beginning of the school year I wasn't, myself, in school anymore. BTW, that changed a few weeks ago when I was awarded a full, 4-year, scholarship to study astrology via RASA, a Canadian school of astrology. My present studies won't require me to travel or attend courses in person, however, because much of the curriculum is offered in audio files and pdf's. So back in school, I still felt subbing wasn't a bad way to go day-job-wise, especially since there simply aren't many jobs to go for when one lives in the woods of a decidedly rural area. THAT decision changed just a few days ago for a number of reasons, and now I've finally and decisively taken the plunge to work full-time as a psychic medium (please see the recent past post: Important Announcement Regarding Readings). But I digress...  

The importance of my name came to the fore again whilst working the sub teaching job last year the local school. By that time I had already been subbing at this school for about 2 years, minus the time I had to take off due to pneumonia (please see past post: Pondering Pneumonia). Every day on a white board in the office of this school the names of the subs were written next to the name of the teacher they're subbing for. For the entirety of the first and most of the second year, my name was never spelled correctly. I gently told folks in the office that this was so and still my name continued to be spelled incorrectly. Sometimes both my first AND last name were misspelled. This seemed odd to me. How hard was it to learn what my name was and how to spell it? And to make matters worse, no matter how many times I pronounced my name, it was often not said correctly by a whole lotta folks at this particular school. Actually the kids learned my name before many of the teachers did, and right up to the last day of me working for this school, some teachers still NEVER pronounced my name correctly. Weird. I got to the point where I'd phonetically spell my name on the board of the class I was working in, as well as showing the correct way to spell it. Hence, Back-ridges = Bakriges

This year is now the third year I've subbed for the above mentioned local school. When I saw my name once again misspelled on the white board in the office next to the teacher I was subbing for, I decided to take matters into my own hand. In front of the office workers, I walked up to the board, erased my poor, misspelled name, and wrote it correctly. Without a word I walked out of the office. My name was not misspelled on that board ever again.

Dear readers, for your convenience please know that I've begun going through all the posts in this weblog...a BIG job if there ever was one...tagging posts with pertinent topics/labels that are covered, and having them listed on the right sidebar in a 'cloud.'

I'm not sure how long this will all take, but I can tell it is worth the effort so that you can find posts about what you're interested in. Thank you!

Important Announcement Regarding Readings

Today I have made a huge commitment to who I am...a psychic medium... and what I do...serve Spirit by facilitating readings. I have decided that I will now offer readings not just in the evenings and on weekends, but also during the weekdays. Therefore, Skype and phone readings can now be scheduled beginning at 9 am during the weekdays and weekends. Also, I'll be able to give readings 'on the spot' if I've an opening when you call...not unlike 'walk ins' except that the reading is done either on the phone or via Skype. It's time for me to take the leap, allowing for The Spiritual Spider, LLC to grow. This schedule will happily allow for my astrology studies AND beadwork, as well. Please do check out the always excellent and affordable pricing for readings (see right sidebar in red text). And as always, I am at various 'in person' events, too, if you prefer your reading face-to-face:   
In-Person Happenings For 2013

If you've received a reading from me that was helpful and meaningful, please tell your friends and family. Perhaps it's been awhile since you've scheduled your own reading. How about giving the gift of a reading to someone you care about? I welcome the opportunity to read for YOU and YOURS! Thank you!!

Expectation

"I am open to the guidance of synchronicity, and do not let expectations hinder my path." 
~ Dalai Lama

As a Psychic Medium, I often meet clients who expect a particular loved one to come through in a reading. I begin mediumship readings by explaining that I don't fabricate Spirit, nor do I "make" them come through, for I cannot do so and would not want to do so. I do not hold the control-keys of who comes through and who does not. That said, when intentions are set for the highest and best good of the client, a crossed over Spirit(s) often comes through, although it may not be the Spirit(s) that the client expected. More often than not, the client understands and accepts this outcome, but sometimes the client gets upset. In rare cases, a client does not want to honor the Spirit who came through, refusing to hear about what that Spirit chooses to communicate. Thankfully this is not the norm, for it's my feeling that we should honor and thank whoever communicates with us from the Other Side, trusting that they have come for our highest and best good.

A wonderful story illustrates this point, although it has to do with an animal instead of a person who came through in a mediumship reading. It was near the end of the client's reading and with only a few minutes left, I asked her if she had any final questions. Noticeably embarrassed, she shyly asked if I saw or heard from her beloved cat that recently crossed over. I took a few deep breaths and immediately saw a beautiful white cat. When I described the cat for her she looked deeply disappointed because it did not match the description of her cat. I asked if she or someone she knew ever had a deaf, white cat. "No," was the answer, as her eyes sadly lowered. I telepathically asked the cat if it could give me more information. The cat turned its head and I saw that it had two different colored eyes. I relayed this info to the client. She nearly fell off her chair. Not long ago, where she worked as a volunteer at an animal shelter, there was a very sick white cat with two different colored eyes. Unfortunately, the cat had to be put down. I let the client know that the cat wanted to thank her for her loving kindness and gentle care prior to crossing over. Tears welled up in the client's eyes. She was so very grateful. Then, another cat came through and I was told it was "agouti." I saw that this cat had striped tiger patterning on its coat. Sure enough, it was the client's beloved pet who had recently crossed over. I knew personally that agouti coloring in a rabbit was often gray and brown, resembling a wild rabbit. It was interesting that this cat used the same term and was visibly proud of having done so. This turned out to be the exact coloring of the client's cat.

~Maya Angelou

That goes for animals, too!

March's Free Reading

Calling all those who want to be in March's drawing for one free reading. The winner can choose between one 30-minute Tarot reading OR a 30-minute Psychic Mediumship reading. The reading will be via Skype or phone. An MP3 recording of the reading will be included as my gift to you, if one desires it.

How can you win this reading? Either send me an e-mail (
spinningjenny57@hotmail.com) OR comment on the blog post that has the free offer (include your e-mail address so I can contact you if you win). After a few days of having the free-offer-post up I'll put all names in a hat and pull the winner (my random decision on when this will happen). The winner will be on the post that the offer was on, using their first name only (along with last name initials, if needed to distinguish them from others with the same first name). I'll contact that person via e-mail to let them know that they have won. We'll schedule a reading for a day/time that's good for both of us. If you win, please do not enter the contest again for one year. Thank you!

If you do not win this month, your name will automatically go into the drawing for the following months, so no need to e-mail me each month to be included. If, for whatever reason, you don't want to be in future drawings do let me know, please.


The winner for March's free reading is: Sharon B.
