Here are a few points about my reading schedule for the coming week or so.
The New Year has gone off with quite a bang for me, divination-wise as well. As I have been discreetly mentioning here & there I am currently fully booked with reading orders, for which I am truly grateful.
I have therefore committed myself to a tight reading schedule: to do at least one reading a day. This doesn’t seem that much, but considering that a) one reading including writing the report takes three to four hours, b) I do physically & emotionally draining work during the day five days a week, and c) the readings tend to happen late in the evening, it becomes clear that sticking to my current planning will be quite a feat.
So I think I can be forgiven for feeling a bit daunted. With my day work as well (I’m a masseuse) I am in a period of transition in which I am suddenly a lot busier. Which is all fantastic news, but it takes some adjusting.
As for the readings, they have been getting a lot more intense lately, laying the spread as well as the process of writing them out. Indeed, it has become clear to me what my particular specialism or niche will be & I’ll get into that when the New Year’s frenzy is over! Meanwhile I am already doing this work according to my developing new standard (sorry for being so vague, it will become clear very soon & people who have already received their reading reports will have seen what I mean), which is intense & exhilarating but can also be quite draining. Especially since I do work best at night.
So I was feeling a lot of tension between recuperation & procrastination, between feeling guilty for twiddling my thumbs & realizing I’m waiting for the right moment.
But yesterday something happened that has me more or less reconciled with the fact that my readings can’t be planned as tightly as I would like them to. I had been doing the weekend groceries & was feeling generally frustrated with myself for being behind schedule already, apparently forgetting that I had done a heavy session the night before from which I could be forgiven for needing some head space, plus I have a home to run. I fell on the couch exhaustedly.
But after taking a nap & watching my Hogfather DVD (which is the best medicine for EVERYTHING) I felt refreshed & ready to take on the next New Year’s reading on my list. Which turned out to be a very special session indeed & I could not have pulled it off at the scheduled time. But as it now happened it was the most beautiful thing & the report practically wrote itself.
So now I feel more relaxed about my scheduling & I wanted to share this with you, so you know that a) I may be running a bit behind, although I’ll try not to, and b) this will actually benefit the end result. Trust me, it will be worth the wait!
I feel very grateful to each & every client who has assured me that they understand I’m busy & that these things have to happen at the right moment: darlings, you have been much wiser than me.
I am also grateful that you apparently don’t take me for the kind of reader who churns out copy-paste reports within two hours of ordering.
Thank you for understanding & for Having Standards! I will keep everyone posted on any delays.
Now, where did I put that schedule…
