Enjoying the “unusual” lifeAugust 21, 2010
I forget at times that my life is not what you would call “normal”. I am a Cuban-American living in Spain who has spent time living in Miami, Boston, Seattle, London, Amsterdam, Vienna, Berlin, Madrid, Lisboa, Barcelona… I speak fluent English and Spanish, which means I enjoy the richness of several cultures. I have a history in the arts, including music, software, circus and electronic dance parties. Add to that the fact that I teach about Practical Spirituality and Magick… and well, you have an interesting background to pull from.
I think it is because of this that I don’t realize how unusual my daily experiences can be. A few days ago I took my roommate (who is a wonderful main-stream woman from Ecuador) to visit a client at the Museu d’Arquologia de Catalunya (Archeological Museum). My client is eccentric. He is a fantastic burst of energy that is well versed in Hermetic studies, Spanish politics and Traffic, as he used to specialize in eliminating congestion problems in the transportation department. Every time I see him, he is fill with new ideas about how to improve the world. He speaks a mile-a-minute and can jump from one subject to the next, weaving a thread that may be imperceptible at first, but always shows itself in the end.
As we sat on the couches of this lovely museum, he began explaining how a Tarot reading he received showed him that I entered his life to fulfill the role of great spiritual teacher and kept gushing to others about a Practical Kabbalah talk I gave a few months back. He’s been working through a set of obstacles over the last year and feels confident that he is finally reaching the end of that journey. It makes me smile to see his changes since his DNA Activation. He is extremely focused and positive, which is a sharp contrast to the person he was when we first started working together.
He rattled off a bunch of ideas for new projects, overcoming life roadblocks, things he wants to learn and how he is moving forward. My roommate sat there speechless. She is slowly finding her own spiritual path and having this person so openly talk about his blending of spirituality and life was shocking, in an encouraging way. You see, his ideas are all around taking the Hermetic Principles and Kabbalah and putting them into practice. He wants people to have access to physical and energetic methods of working through problems. His ideas are marvelous and I am excited to see him manifest them.
At his request, we were given a guided tour of the museum, which was fantastic since it is a gorgeous place (an how often to do you get a personal tour of a museum?). In the middle of the tour, we were interrupted because one my client’s co-workers wanted guidance. My roommate went off with my client while the coworker and I spoke for about half an hour about an etheric/emotional cord he has that needs to be cut. We discussed the root of the cord and ways to cut it in this lifetime. These types of impromptu sessions seem to happen to me frequently, which is why I created Your Spiritual Discussion.
During that time, my roommate had a chance to ask questions of my client that, until now, she had only been able to ask me. She was fascinated by his frank answers about seeing beyond the physical, hermetic thought, emotional freedom and more. What to me is everyday conversation, to her was something usually only discussed behind closed doors, if at all.
We left the museum together, continuing our fluid discussions until we reached the metro where my roommate and I continued on to some esoteric bookstores and lunch, and my client headed home. I won’t even begin to tell you what it was like to go through an esoteric bookstore with someone that is just beginning her spiritual awakening.
Needless to say, it was a fantastic day had by all: I got to see the world through fresh eyes; her veils became a little more transparent. I was reminded of how blessed I am and said a prayer of gratitude to Source for all the people that cross my path. It is through others that I learn my greatest lessons.
