Coincidence or Craziness? You Tell Me!Written by Ellen M. DuBois
Sometimes something drives you to do something. Call it a hunch, a feeling or just plain gut instinct. Maybe messengers from Divine leading you somewhere. I don't really know.
This article is going to bounce a bit from here to there. As I continue with my research, I will be adding to it. Please bear with me...
My Grandmother, Marion Thompson Morin was a Broadway star who made her debut in "Fifty Million Frenchmen" while still a teenager. She then went on to perform in "George White Scandals" and befriended late Alice Faye.
I ended up with entertainment "bug" and have been performing since age of sixteen -- although nothing in comparison to what she did. It's in blood I assume. But, like her, I need to be involved with performing arts to feel whole.
On May 21, 1927, Charles Lindberg landed "The Spirit of St. Louis" safely at Le Bourget Field outside Paris , "having traversed over 3,600 miles in roughly 33.5 hours."
Okay, he landed in Paris. Turns out that my great grandfather's name is carved on Eiffel Tower in Paris as one of workers who erected it.
Now, you're probably wondering where I am going here, and so do I.
Charles Lindberg's landing date, May 21st, is also my birth date.
My grandmother, Marion Thompson Morin, received a letter which is in my mother's possession, from Charles Lindberg. I have no idea what it says.
Career Guidance from the CardsWritten by Cathy Goodwin, Ph.D.
As a career consultant, I meet people who feel they are standing at a fork in road, seeking guidance on whether to turn right or left. Accept this job offer? Resign from a frustrating job? Return to school? "I know answer is within me," they say, "but how do I gain access to my inner wisdom?" Besides journaling and meditating, I often turn to tarot cards, using a simple, single-card method. As you shuffle a deck, ask your question. Avoid yes/no questions, encouraging phrases like, "What will happen if I …" Or just, "Give me an impression of outcome X." Pull a single card. Often image will speak to you immediately. You'll have a sense that your intuition has been personified in this single card. For instance, Marie had just completed interviews with two companies. She was also considering a return to graduate school for a new career altogether. Marie drew "Death" for both of her corporate options. She realizes that this card can signify a rebirth. However, as soon as Marie saw those cards, she felt her intuition was confirmed: "I sensed rejection all through interview." For her third option, a new career, Marie drew Five of Cups. Typically Five of Cups means "regret." Marie was confused: would she regret decision to return to school? However, I suggested, this card might signify regret from not choosing this option. It could mean that she needed time to mourn her corporate career. Alternatively, it could mean that she would regret decision initially, but would feel differently later. I urged Marie to live with decision and card a little longer, gather more information, and use meditation and journaling to enhance her intuition. And, I suggested, she could draw another card later. In my own life, I have found that a two-card sequence corresponds loosely to a temporal sequence. Alas, cards do not yield information about length of each sequence, but you know there's hope ahead.
