I was recently asked what I like to do for fun. As do most people, there are multiple things I like to do for fun and just as with others, not everyone would find what I like to do “fun”. We are each individuals who enjoy different things.
When I was growing up, back in the dinausaur ages of television, I had maybe 5 channels from which to choose programs to watch. It was indeed a simpler time. Growing up in the northern part of the US with, on average, snow and cold from November through April made television an important impact on a young child’s life.
When I was about 7 years old, my mother heard me laughing in the living room. She came in to see what I was carrying on about and saw that I was watching the Night of The Living Dead – the 1968 Romero masterpiece. She was quite concerned I would have nightmares yet I laughed at her. Zombies were not real, I told her, besides she didn’t even believe me about the people who would stand in my closet at night and stare at me. Zombies are no where near as scary as that.
She did not understand me then, and I don’t think she really ever did up until she passed. It’s ok – it took me a long time to understand her conditional love and longer yet to understand how her psyche worked. Now, it just is.
But it gives me pause when I speak to others in casual public environments about what I find fun. To my students and clients I have no reservations – they understand who I am when they come to me. But to outsiders there is always the chance that they will not have been trained on how to respond to others appropriately in public environments as I was. LOL And when people make scenes it is really just unnecessary drama, so I have to be circumspect in deciding with whom I share personal details.
When your work is fun, that is always a bonus. And as I share with my students, if you are having fun, if you are filled with joy, then you know you are on the correct Path for you. For me, my greatest fun comes from working on possession cases and on heavily “polluted” environments.
Possession is a challenge, but it fills me with Joy and Light. I was made to overcome that which is evil by nature and I make no apology for it. I am just circumspect. And when I get the opportunity to clear places of DEBs, that too is fun for me. I would rather clear space any day than sit in front of a movie that is trying to manipulate the way I think and feel.
Do I do “normal” things for fun? Sure. But when I rate what I do for fun, I would rate going to a cemetery and clearing out those hanging around highly, whereas going to a party with strangers lowly. When I do have to attend those events I choose to clear the space and then examine those around me for what is attached to them. I make my fun wherever I go, to be honest.
This is how I recognize those who are living their Path. They LIVE it – it is not just a mantle they throw on for a few hours daily or weekly. They live it and it shows.
