Dear future Lisa,
I hope you read this letter when you turn 50 and again every time you hit a new decade
You had a bit of a rough start in life, I think we can both agree on that and it took you a long good while to learn to be kind and patient with yourself. What I hope most for you is that you get to play lots and lots wherever you are. Keep making others giggle too – life truly is too short for anything else. And if you’re no longer on the earth plane, I hope you are with the Angels of Laughter on the other side. I’m pretty sure their giggles are what create anything at all that is fun and pretty in the Multiverse.
When you look back at your 43 year old self, I want you to do so with compassion because the truth is that it feels like life is only now starting in earnest. When you were 43, you finally learned to look after yourself properly. The picture above is from your first week of lifting heavy (early August, 2013) and the smile says it all. A few weeks in, I can confirm that weightlifting agrees with you, so I sincerely hope you kept it up and that you are stronger than you were at 43. Oh, and I hope you kept up the yoga stretches! Stiffness sets in really quickly with body building – add old age to that equation… *shudders*
A while back you learned to train to feel good and not to look good and at 43 you realised that you are no longer afraid of getting ‘too muscular.’ You are probably really muscular and scarily veiny by now hehe – Well done! Maybe you even have grandkids that ask you to flex your muscles or lift something really heavy that their dad can’t lift. That would be awesome! Or maybe you’re a size 14 belly dancer. I don’t care if that’s what makes you happy. We both know how much you thrive on change!
However, there’s one thing I hope you don’t change or quit. I hope you still have have a passion for the Tarot because it is already obvious that the more I learn about life as well as metaphysics, the better a reader I become – it would be a shame not to use all that knowledge and wisdom and I relish the thought of where I may be at as a reader ten or 20 years from now. Please never stop working. Retirement does not suit you.
I can’t help but wonder what you will feel like when you look yourself in the mirror and see the signs of age on your face but I bet you’ll be grateful for every day you wake up on the right side of the dirt. I hope you will cherish every wrinkle and every silvery strand of hair. The journey takes it’s toll, whether you choose to journey as the Hero in conscious awareness or not.
It’s OK if you never wrote that book that everyone told you you should write. And it’s cool if you did. Either way you should celebrate your achievements. To make a lonely human soul smile when they read your blog posts may well count for more than putting yet another book out there that nobody has the time to read. Hopefully you have a copy of the Arcturian Tarot close at hand, as I do intend to complete it. You got your creative mojo back after a few weeks of bodybuilding, so it turned out to be a win-win, both for wellbeing and creativity!
If you’re still single, I hope you’re as happy to be on your own as I am right now. If anything, I picture you even more at peace. It’s a bit odd but I can’t even seem to picture myself with anyone any more, so I have started embracing growing old on my own. Maybe you’re travelling the world. If you are, I bet you still end up meeting the most amazing people, just like you did when you travelled in your late teens and early twenties – before you got busy being a mother.
I hope you enjoy a wonderful loving connection with all three of your children. You couldn’t possibly be any more proud of them than your 43 year old self though. They are radiant beings – born wise and already well-equipped for their Journeys. Your Angel baby still watches over you… and when you cross over you finally get to play with her and hold her in your spirit arms.
Wherever you are and whatever you do, I want you to know that I love and approve of you. You will always have me, just as you will always have the six year old Lisa. Maiden-Mother-Crone am I, and I love being a woman who is about to transition into the next phase of her life. The first and second phases have been hard. Some of us have our childhood really late in life and I hope you are lucky enough to get to enjoy yours for a long good while. Play on!
