Ronni Ann Hall is a teacher and empath whose blog I’ve been following for quite a while now. I’e also taken one of her fairy classes and greatly enjoyed it. So when she asked me to be on the blog tour for her new ebook Help! I’m Sensitive: 50 Tools for the Sensitive to Help You Survive & Thrive , I jumped at the chance!
Help! I’m Sensitive is a practical guide for dealing with the many overwhelming aspects of being a sensitive person or an empath. Ronni starts her book with a letter to the sensitive in which she states that sensitivity is something we often try to ignore because of how we are perceived by others or because it is too painful. She reminds us that “you were made this way for a bigger purpose,” and that self-acceptance is the first step to finding balance.
Ronni offers solutions to 50 different problems including: spiritual perfectionism, depression, psychic vampires, addiction, empathic overload, headaches, sensitive skin, nightmares and so much more! For instance, her solution to getting too involved in other people’s lives (something I often get caught up in!) is to use “duck energy” or compassionate detachment. She writes, “Let it go. Just swim along in the sea and don’t get lost in others’ floods. They are swimming along too, the best they can.”
Her solution to holding in negativity is to “clear it out gently” via meditation with a rock or crystal. “Ask the rock or crystal to transmute the negative energy you’ve taken on and send the energy into the rock as you hold it.” I adore rocks and crystals, but I so often forget that I can ask them to serve me in this way!
Several of Ronni’s solutions harmonize with messages I’ve been told by my guides over the years — really good advice that I had completely forgotten about. It was beautiful and affirming to read her truth and wisdom, and I greatly appreciated the many solutions I hadn’t thought about before – like making an Everything I Love book to look through on days when I’m having a case of the mean reds. Ronni intends her book to be something you can go back to when you’re upset, like looking up how to deal with a physical ailment, and I can already tell it’s something I’ll be referencing often in the near future.
I’m 23 weeks pregnant, which is very exciting. I’ve been meditation on/with the spirit of this child who will also be a guide to me for years and it will be great to meet him in person. He threw me for a loop by choosing to incarnate as a boy, though his spirit had always appeared to me as a female before. Just one more reminder that who we are in the body does not at all encapsulate who we are in totality.
Anyway, that’s all by way of introducing the lovely meditation I had the other day that I felt led to share:
In the meditation, I grounded myself by visualizing roots tying me to the Earth & being surrounded by white light. Then I visualized myself walking near a stone wall where I took what Ronnie calls “the fairy door.” I found myself in a lush, walled garden full of fairies with large trees, many plants and stone benches and a long stone table. The fairies (in their small, winged forms) called it one of their last strongholds on Earth.
They gathered around me, especially near my belly and blessed me for taking on all the incarnations and karmic weight that led to this most important lifetime and the sacred child I carry. They blessed the child within me, saying that he, like me, will be full of fairy magic, and to make sure he spends lots of time in nature so he would learn to access his power. They told me that he will be my teacher and guide, though I must also teach and guide him. They called him a son of the moon and the sun, a uniter of dualities and a light of truth and wisdom.
Then, taking on more human proportions, they once more laid their hands on me and blessed me. Then we sat down to a large banquet of fruits, cheeses and breads. I noticed there was no meat at the banquet, and asked if I should raise my child as a vegetarian. They responded that he will know his own path & that all I have to do is support and guide him when he feels lost.
After dining, we danced together as the sun set in the sky and the stars shone brightly above us. Then they told me I was to go back home & I came back to where I had grounded myself in front of my altar, feeling very peaceful and blessed.
“All lovingly unfolds through time and space
Life constantly transforms, but in essence nothing changes
There is nothing to fear, there is only love
I am one with the Universe and stars
Love is my guiding force.”
