Are you willing to eat the s**t sandwich?

by | Nov 11, 2020 | Pizza for the soul | 5 comments

If anyone said the path to the spirit world could only be walked on the inside, instead of running about in the galaxies of my mind, I’d have run a mile.

Being psychic meant being off with the pixies, in a galaxy far, far away bringing amazing messages to grateful people. Imagine the disappointment to discover the real way to do that begins with sitting quietly. That was my shit sandwich. 

A shit sandwich is: How much of the crappy bits are you willing to take to get the thing you want?

If marathon runners lose toenails in long distances, and ballet dancers toughen their feet with methylated spirits to dance, what unpalatable parts of our dream are we willing to face?

For me, it was learning to sit with myself and accept what was found there. The last five years I’ve nibbled away at my shit sandwich. I’ve taught myself to sit still, acknowledging the thoughts and emotions that come up and accept them as part of me.

Now, on a good day, they come and go like the clouds I see drifting across my window right now. The process brings me closer to my own soul and through that, the essence of all.

Mediums call that, “sitting in the power” or, “sitting for spirit” and it sounds very glamorous, but it turned out be the hardest part of mediumship training.

The shit sandwich

The last thing I wanted was to discover my own soul with all its cellulite and baggage, but I cautiously began to nibble my sandwich.

Five years later I’ve taught this control freak wriggler to sit still, acknowledging thoughts, emotions and whatever comes and goes like the clouds I see right now, drifting across my window. This is a part of “sitting in the power”.

Turns out, you get used to the taste of shit sandwiches, and when that happens they are no longer yukky.

The gift was getting to know my own soul and connecting to the essence of ‘me’, and then, through that, the essence of all. In fact, didn’t Jesus say something similar about the only way to God is through him? Meaning the soul?

 

But it’s not easy.

Which is why so many give up, discouraged by the inner work needed. Inner work is one thing no one can run from. It catches up with us one way or another.

Soul expansion is an integral aspect of training for the psychic and mediumship arts, and there’s no short cut.

The spirit within must be found, cherished and healed in order for the greater soul work to happen. We must eat the shit sandwich, and wash it down with a pint of self love and acceptance.

Perhaps reading this, you’re inspired to have another go at that psychic course that’s gathering space dust on the desktop.

Or pull out a meditation to sit with, or even journal a bit on what the fears are to take that next spiritual step.

Whatever it is, know that this is also part of soul expansion and a mother tiny step along your path to connecting to your own soul.

Maybe even rest the phone down for a minute and gaze out the window, to touch your own soul.

It’s the small magic of everyday inner work that make the big magic, don’t you think? Love to hear your thoughts in the comments.

    HI Denise,
    I always love you way you put things did you say you were a Pisces say it as it is. I know about eating that sandwich bit by bit over the years it has got bigger. most of the properties I have lived in have shared something with me, spirit wise. The last property was built after the war so there was so many different ones. A relationship before that changed me, probably the reason I haven’t had the confidence I had to take the leap forward. thank you for being there we all need someone to trust

How not to eat your body weight in cake

I have a secret to confess: Each time there’s a new level to explore in my psychic path, I resort to cake. Have you had this too – a big new exciting adventure to do, but oooh so scary, so it’s raiding the fridge to squish all the feels down?

Know your soul purpose

What if you’d always known your soul purpose? What if you came here already knowing what you were meant to do? What if having a soul purpose was something intrinsic to your very being that was kind of choreographed loosely before you arrived?

I'm not your average psychic, unless cake eating, rescue dog loving clairvoyants who can't cook rice are the new normal. Like Glinda the Good Witch, I believe you’ve always had the power, m’dear.

I work with savvy, intuitive women who know they ’re psychic and are ready to fearlessly explore that side of themselves without dressing in crushed purple velvet.
