Maintaining friendships from our past is a fortunate feat as we age, yet it's also natural for some connections to fade over time. Rare are those who remain constants from childhood into adulthood. While having old friends can bridge the gap between imagination and reality, there's a nuanced aspect to it.
In my over thirty years of conducting readings, I find it intriguing when clients from a decade ago resurface. It serves as a reminder of my own journey, prompting reflections on the distance traveled and the lessons learned, including those who've come and gone.
In the days before selfies, memories were captured in physical photographs, often stored in boxes. My own collection has a noticeable gap since the advent of camera phones, now replaced by sporadic digital snapshots. The thought of losing these memories to a technological glitch begs the question: How secure is the cloud?
There's a nostalgic charm in holding a Polaroid, as I recently rediscovered when a friend shared an old photograph of our children. The image transported me back in time, evoking memories of our past lives and surroundings. It's a stark contrast to the selfie culture of today, where photos are snapped without much thought.
In the past, photographs were taken to commemorate events or occasions, fostering shared memories and storytelling. Unlike the impulsive nature of modern selfies, film photos were developed over time, creating anticipation and a sense of connection upon retrieval.
Recently, a conversation with a friend about my teenage years sparked curiosity about an old flame. Remarkably, shortly after, I received a Facebook message from him, triggered by his discovery of an old photo of us. The image captured a younger, more innocent version of myself, sparking reflections on youth, love, and the passage of time.
This unexpected reunion prompted memories of our shared past and led to a meeting thirty years later. As we reminisced about old times and caught up on our current lives, it became clear that while memories may differ, they hold significance in shaping our narratives.
As friendships evolve and memories linger, our brains have a way of reshaping the past, blurring the lines between reality and perception. While photographs may capture moments frozen in time, the stories they tell are subjective, shaped by our individual perspectives. In the end, perhaps what truly matters is the journey and the connections made along the way.

Currently, the Universal feeling is transformation and we are all riding the highs and lows of this shifting consciousness. A lot is going to change in the months and even the year to come so the question is how does this look for us as individuals? You may feel a need to pause and be still that sense of catching your breath especially if you work hard and drive to always have the next breakthrough. Or you may be seeking self-improvement.
This is a time when you are feeling a need to rest and that may not mean chilling and doing nothing, it may mean that you find joy and fun. For others, it may mean turning off your devices so that you might take a rest from social media etc. It will show up in different ways for different people but you will definitely identify the need to do something different.
Because of this transformational feeling, you will find a new way of being especially if you are identifying triggers from the past. So the transformational change may be personal healing and if you stay aware of what's going on you might be able to just look back on your last few months or your last few years and go wow that was something that really used to bug me but actually It does not trigger me anymore. This is a time where you will notice how far you have come, especially those rapid changes from the past and it now gives you time to make a conscious decision about where you want to be in the future.
So slow it all down and you will see that you're ready for something new.
As you change your habits and patterns you allow a transformation beyond your conditioning and environment allowing you to move into something new.

It always amazes me that we identify ‘as individuals’ but really we are a collective as most feel the same energy changes, we all feel the ebbs and flows of environmental changes.
So although we are alone in this world, our energy is togetherness.
We do live in a state of oneness but with issues around the world and in our individual countries, we still feel connected energy when someone in the collective is hurting. Why do we watch the news? To feel a connectedness.
We all have something in common, we are alive at the same time on earth. We all feel. So, there is a connective thread that we all have. I realise there are individuals who would like to see us more divided as a people but think about it. They have their collective. So, there are pockets of togetherness energy and differences around the Universe. We will never get along, but we have one thing in common we are different and if someone you love is in a different place to you and it makes you feel uncomfortable, or sad, then go through whatever you need to go to help you heal your feelings, it does not necessarily mean it will heal you both but what you will notice is that you can love while also recognising that you don't fully understand.
I always find if something is showing up in the energy, I will notice it showing up very finely in my personal life.
This new phase will see you being able to love and accept other people in a way you never have been able to before. Why? Because you're clear about who they are and you’re clear about who you are and you might never fully understand each other but you have done enough healing to let it go. We need to let go of the idea of loneliness or being alone because we're all alone and together on this planet.
