JOMO – The Joy Of Missing Out!

Click Here NOW for a FREE psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comI’m sure you have heard of ‘FOMO’ or the ‘fear of missing out.’ Well, let me introduce you to its counterpart: JOMO, or the joy of missing out! No, it’s not something I invented. Both these trendy acronyms were added to the Oxford Dictionary several years ago.

According to the Oxford Lexico Dictionary, FOMO is the “anxiety that an exciting or interesting event may currently be happening elsewhere, often aroused by posts seen on social media.”

We all experience some level of FOMO in our modern lives, due to our constant exposure to online news, streaming services, and social media platforms. Most people are constantly glued to their phones and tablets these days. We feel compelled to have it all at our fingertips, lest we miss something exciting.

But this really does not bring us much joy in the long run.  Instead, it is addictive, exhausting, and can lead to increased anxiety, poor self-esteem and even depression.  We are missing out on moments that we never can get back.

JOMO however flips FOMO on its head! The Oxford Lexico Dictionary describes it as “pleasure derived from living in a quiet or independent way without feeling anxious that one is missing out on exciting or interesting events that may be happening elsewhere.” JOMO is all about taking time out from all the digital distractions, busyness, and noise around us.

Spontaneous JOMO happens when our cell phone signal is caught in a dead zone with no service, or the internet or cable goes down, and we decide to go for a walk to look at the stars.  At first, we might feel awkwardly uncomfortable or even panicked, but then we start to focus on what and who is in front of us, or the environment around us.  And suddenly, there is a new sense of peace.  Our senses become more heightened. The world is a much calmer, more beautiful place.

Bittersweet Is The Fall

Click Here NOW for a FREE psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comBittersweet is the fall in Maine. Literally. We have a vine here known as the ‘asiatic bittersweet’ (celastrus orbiculatus) that produces attractive red berries. They are yellow at first, but as they mature the outer shell cracks open to expose a magnificent crimson berry with a yellow coat.

Crafters here in New England traditionally use this vine to make holiday wreaths and decorate their homes. It also adorns the roads of Maine with the combination of fall leaves and green of pine trees.

But the bittersweet vine does its name justice in both sweet beauty and bitterness, life and death, because it is not only adored for its versatility as autumn décor this time of year, but it is also widespread, severely invasive and destructive. It suffocatingly twines high up around trees and sprawls over lower plants and vegetation.

It is not a native plant to the region and was originally brought here as an ornamental plant. As the vine begins to spread and grow to the top of trees it becomes the vine of death for the tree as it covers it completely. A bitter vine.

The fall is indeed a bittersweet time of the year. The natural cycle of life and death. The bittersweet time of year is the time to harvest food for the long winter ahead. Get our homes ready for the snow, darkness, and ice of winter.

In Maine the old timers say ‘button up the house’ for winter. The sweet part is people are thinking of the holidays ahead and gatherings with family and friends. There are traditional recipes. Who will make the best pie? Everyone has a favorite. Whose gravy is the most delicious? It’s a time of gratitude for everything that is good in life.

Always Be True To Yourself!

Click Here NOW for a FREE psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comI have noticed over the past year some interesting changes in our social behavior. It seems people have begun to project not only their energy differently, but also their presence at home and in public. Our socialization and interaction habits appear to have shifted significantly. Many people are now having to ‘relearn’ how to interact with each other in social settings, after many months of lockdowns and social distancing.

Now, I don’t see this as a bad thing at all! I am witnessing people being more aware of their personal space, and less worried about of the perception of others around them. Social interaction seems more authentic and less dressed up. We have become less concerned about how we appear to others in public. Finally, people are letting their hair down and the customary ‘keeping up appearances’ does not appear so important these days.

This suits my approach to life perfectly, as I have always been a proponent of ‘being my own beacon.’ First, and foremost it means be true to yourself, instead of trying to be what you believe others will approve of. However, this does not give us permission to be selfish and rude. We must always treat other as we expect to be treated ourselves. If you like a certain type of music, it doesn’t mean others also enjoy it. Wear a headset! If you don’t feel like interacting with a certain group of people, kindly and gracefully decline that social invitation.

Too often I see people doing things because someone else expects them to, and you can literally see the miserable, uninterested, bored look on their faces. Why put yourself through all that? Why comply with peer pressure, when you can walk your own path of happiness?

I have an acquaintance who has been miserable in their job and due to recent worldly events they have given the opportunity to break free from that toxic workplace and start doing something they have always enjoyed doing. But they were to fearful to take the leap. A wasted opportunity!

The World Is A Metaphor For Human Consciousness

Click Here NOW for a FREE psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comThe natural world around us reflects the internal evolutionary patterns of human consciousness. Seasons are a good reflection of how we as humans evolve and grow at the level of consciousness. The closer you get to the poles the climates are often cold and rigid. These climates do not support a large variety of life.

We see something similar taking place within the human mind. The more polarized and rigid someone becomes in their thinking patterns the less variety and the less diversity of life experiences take place. We can have very rigid patterns of thinking, which tend to leave us cold and static in our experiences.

As we move more toward the center of our globe, we see more diversity of life. We also begin to see seasonal changes taking place on a more regular basis. There are seasons where trees lose their leaves, animals hibernate, and activity slows down. In consciousness this could symbolize a person that is beginning to expand their consciousness. Someone willing to change and grow.

This level of consciousness that northern and southern regions represent easier it is for someone to accept the ebb and flow of life. An acceptance of both the light and the dark can emerge at this stage and people become more aware of their emotions.

The closer to the center someone gets within consciousness the more diversity and love they experience. They are not focused on polarity at all, but instead accept life as it comes. This often includes acceptance of the storms in life that are produced by the overall polarized climate.

Journeys And Destinations

Click Here now FOR a FREE psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comOne often hears the saying “It’s about the journey, not the destination.’ But what does it truly mean? I believe the events of the past year has brought many of us to a deeper understanding.

The importance of the ‘journey’ became more evident with so many cultural holidays, birthday parties and family gatherings that had to be cancelled during the worst of the pandemic. For example, the significance of planning these special events became especially obvious this past Christmas, as well as the many cancelled festivals here in Spain.

The Christmas holiday season is usually a hectic time, with much hustle and bustle, including the mandatory family conflicts or ‘differences of opinion.’ But the joy of the season leading up to Christmas and New year is typically a time of excitement, especially for children.

People normally spend lots of time planning these celebrations and the excitement leading up to any gathering is often more fun than the event itself! Not having these occasions to look forward to has created a void in the lives of many people all over the world.

Instead, Christmas 2020 was a difficult time for many. It certainly brought up a myriad of personal challenges and negative emotions, particularly for those unable to visit loved ones, or not being able to have relatives home for the holidays.

Here in Spain, the locals are constantly planning their many fiestas. Each town and province has its own special festivals and cultural traditions, especially in the summer months. I have even witnessed the locals take to the streets in very cold weather, just to enjoy the vibe and camaraderie!

The Spaniards have a deep sense of community and they love letting their hair down whenever they can. Having grown used to the culture here, it made the silence of the empty streets this past year even more jarring than it might have been somewhere else.

What You Can Expect From The Year 2021

Click Here NOW for a FREE psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comNext year, the world’s energy imprint will be a 5, according to Numerology. During a 5 year, one can typically expect lots of activity, and after all the turmoil of 2020, we will now have even more catching up to do than usual. The energy of the 5 is fast moving and encourages us to meet life’s challenges with renewed vigor.

Some aspects of life will gradually begin to return to normal in the new year, but bear in mind that some things have changed and shifted more permanently, pulling us forward to embrace new innovations and alternatives for 2021. It calls us to find new ways to do old things.

If you find it challenging to keep up, ask for help. There is always someone helpful you can reach out to, who can show you the nuances and tips.  It reminds me of my first encounter with video back in the day. My son had to show me the tricks and secrets of Nintendo’s Mario game, which of course he loved sharing! Who says you cannot teach an old dog new tricks?

The keywords for next year’s 5 energy are freedom, change, fun, travel and adventure. And we could certainly use some of all that! The energy of the 5 makes it especially a great year to travel. Finally, we will be able to do so, as the year progresses. So, start planning that dream vacation now, and look into one or more of those exotic destinations you have had on your bucket list for so many years.

But beware, in a 5 year we can also feel that our energy is scattered, so focusing on what’s most important is key.  There will be many shiny objects to distract us in a 5 year, so if we are not mindful, we may find that nothing of importance will get done.

With all the energy of novelty and excitement we may encounter in 2021, we will have to pace ourselves, stay grounded and maintain our self-care practices. If you will be taking risks, first take a closer look, because not all that glitters is gold.

Open-Minded Curiosity Is The Key To A Happy, Healthy Life

Click Here NOW for a FREE psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comA client asked the other day how I keep my immunity up during these challenging times, and if there is anything special one can do to stay mentally healthy. My answer was simple. You simply need to keep an open mind, and have passion for life.

Working with spirit has taught me over the years to live my life wholeheartedly, with daily gratitude, and with an open mind and a healthy curiosity. I am always eager to learn and experience new things. We are not meant to be constantly stuck in a rut, nor spend our lives in mediocre stagnation.

Just the other day, a friend told me that she thought I am the most imaginative and adventurous person she has ever met. I am always so optimistic and upbeat, she said, and she gets energy from me just by spending time with me.

She has also witnessed how positive things happen in my life through my spiritual practices. For example, I use certain crystals, visualizations and affirmations to bring about real change in my life – not only for myself, but also for others.

The more we are open-minded to explore new horizons, and learn new things, the more we allow positive, creative new energies to enter our reality, empowering us to achieve things that we otherwise wouldn’t – especially when we just sit around doing nothing.
