when eclipses bring past friends back into your life

August 2, 2009

We have all had it happen to us where one day you look up and you run into an old friend at a conference or workshop. Suddenly, your brain is thrown in high gear as your mind deciphers where, how, and when  your last meeting was ? Was it a pleasant moment ? You sort of glance at the person and ask  sheepishly..is that you …ugh..well you know what I mean…then there’s the small talk and and then the other person continues to tell you there life story thinking that perhaps you will follow! Oh” How time fly?”  I sometime wonder about flying clocks! (a clock with wings on each side.) You then find your exit signal… you both reply;  ” It was nice seeing you”  and …let’s get in touch… you could have exchanged contact information?”

Anyway this past week I received about three email or what I call request for new information  from past acquaintances by way of  the social media giant “Facebook” where I was told was a great place to market your business and grow your client base.  I bet they googled me first! Not one of them were looking to advance themselves in terms of personal growth and development nor seeking a life coach.  I’m sure it had to do with the ecliptic energy we all experienced this past month on Mother Earth! 

However, chances are that we would meet again; it was in the cards; it was meant to be.  Eclipses,new adventure, past relationships, and re-kindling the flames or energy around us  has its advantages and its disadvantages. I really don’t quiteknow what to do with  running into my past but at  least it’s not face to face. That’s why I will cautiously and methodically acknowledge this past weeks’ occurrences. See,  I really want you to know that I’m an avid fan and student of astronomyand I”ve dabbled in the pseudo-science of astrology and  found it to be to my advantage at various times in my life.

Nevertheless, it just dawned on me that I can leave all of them in limbo…acknowledge there presence on my fb wall…or make a real conscious decision to reply….besides it’s ok … I guess… if while growing and marketing my business….a few past friends found me and desire a chat!

Have you had an ecliptic moment this past month and how has it affected you? I can’t blame Facebook and I”m not quite ready and ethically willing to take on past friends as clients. It could get a little messy!

So go ahead and eclipse me and at the same time visit me at http://tinyurl.com/cv5xec    . Read more about solar and lunar eclipse

There’s this one friend though that I’m interested in how their life has progressed but I will leave that person for another…well you know…
