The Mystic and The Engineer

5 Lessons from The Mystic and The Engineer

Recently, a very dear client of mine passed away suddenly. I was one of the family healers for him and his wife Peggy who passed last year. This is a bittersweet moment for me. Bitter because I miss them and sweet because they are now reunited in love on the other side.
I wrote this below for the family as they are putting together a memoirs journal. I wanted to share our story here because the lessons are eternal and inclusive. It can benefit everyone. Please have a read and even though you may not know them, please send a prayer of thanks for them to hear on the other side. I want them to know they are very much loved and cared for.
Dominick and I have some history that will forever be remembered fondly. I am so very grateful to have been part of his and Peggy’s life for so long and as much as I miss them both, I am so thankful and happy they are together again. Dancing in the stars ayyy Dom? Dancing in the stars.
I am happy to share my story with them and yes it is them for me, because they were interchangeable Dom and Peggy. I have my fondest memories of them both and to speak on one would be impossible. They were a team, soulmates and twin flames. They were inseparable. So here we go, here is my story of Dominick…and Peggy.
Dominick breezed into my life like a magician, full of whirlwind energy, questions, jokes and always debates. This is the story of the Mystic and the Engineer, both coming from different worlds but uniting in love of wisdom and healing.
I first met Dominick in 2014 when he brought his wife Peggy to me for massages. She liked it (yay) so I began what I would later discover, a journey of spiritual growth and emotional maturity for me with this couple. I started by seeing Peggy once a month to once every two weeks (by her request) and then to once a week. I started with massages but eventually moved into spiritual healing which she thoroughly enjoyed. For many years, I was her weekly healer and our visits were like a visit to the salon. Peggy would take every opportunity to “bash talk” Dominick and he would just smile and wait patiently in the waiting room for her. He never got cross or upset, he took it all in stride and his eyes….his eyes shown with love for Peggy. She could do no wrong by him and I was in awe of that.
That was my first lesson- a lesson about love. I learned from this amazing couple about the true nature of long term relationships. I learned you could love someone faults and all. I learned that love never dies when Peggy passed and Dominick still talked about her with a smile on his face as if she was still there. Truthfully, she was. She visited him every chance she could get and it proved to me that love truly never dies.
Dominick knew about the metaphysical side of life and he kept trying to convince Peggy about it. She wouldn’t have it! He would try to convince me to convince her and I would laugh. Have you met Peggy? That woman is strong willed like you Dominick! He would laugh at me and say, “But Uma if anyone could get her to see this side of life, it would be you. She loves you and listens to you.”
The funny thing is, Peggy did come around but not because of me. One day while I was doing her energy work, her Father (who is in Spirit) came into the room. He told me details that Peggy could verify and told her he was concerned about her strength and wanted her to use small dumbbells. Of course these messages shook Peggy up, she cried during the session and related it to Dominick. She then demanded to go to the store right now and buy dumbbells. She was a believer from there on out.
This was my second lesson- We don’t have to impose our will on someone else about the spiritual side of life. Leave it to God, He will make it known in a special and meaningful way.
After that session, Dominick wanted a reading with me. I was hesitant honestly because I knew his skepticism. I also knew his determination to get what he wants! So we planned the appointment. Immediately one of Dominick’s old friends came through, his friend Bill and talked about the old days and the bars they went to and where they worked. Oh Dom loved it! He cried in his session too but tears of joy! He said it felt like a visit with an old friend, he was grateful. The only thing he couldn’t verify was the red convertible that Bill kept showing me. He said I was mistaken, I said I wasn’t and there we entered into one of our weekly fights.
When he left, he received a call from Bill’s nephew- someone he did not speak to for many years and he thought, what a coincidence! He told the nephew about our visit and all the things I said. He ended by saying I only got one thing wrong- the red convertible. Bill’s nephew said, “Oh Uncle Dominick, you wouldn’t know about the red convertible, that was before he met you but man he loved that car!”
Dominick was shocked and astounded. He later wrote me an email and then apologized to me in person. He said, “Uma I always thought mediums were hocus pocus. I thought they were really psychics reading people’s minds and memories. What you and Bill did, has changed my mind. I understand now that we can communicate with the other side. Uma you are truly a medium.”
This was my third lesson-Spirit is intricate and intelligent. They will answer the call and do so with infinite wisdom. As a medium, I just have to trust and follow the messages.
After Peggy started improving under my care, Dominick decided to see me for sessions too. He would schedule two sessions a week with me, one for Peggy and one for him. His sessions were metaphysical in nature. He loved healing and readings, so we did those. Without fail, Dominick would debate me every time! He would question my technique, my logic and my knowledge. He would bring books for me to read and one time a photo of my eyes! It came to him in a meetup he went to with a medium who manifested these eyes on paper and he said this was Dominick’s spiritual guide. We both knew it was me and to this day I still have it in my office.
This was my fourth lesson- as much as I am the teacher, I am also the student. Dominick and I interchanged the student-teacher role many times and I can’t help but scowl a little because he finally won over this battle. He will now be the ultimate teacher from the other side as he got there before me. You won this round Dom!
When Peggy’s health started declining, I knew it was time for her to rest. There was one session, the last session that I knew I would see her. I got her comfortable on the table and went to lay hands on her for her weekly healing session and she gently moved my hands away. I sat there with tears in my eyes. We knew, it was time. So I talked to her for the rest of the session and at the end, I told Dominick that I would call him. We talked and I told him that I cannot see Peggy anymore, she is ready to move on. True to form, he at first argued with me and then accepted it. He asked me a difficult question, about the timing of her passing, I was hesitant to respond because I don’t do readings like this but all I could see in that moment was a frightened man who didn’t know for the first time, what his future held. So we talked about it, I told him to skip the idea of the adult nursing home, she would pass within the year and she did. Our twice a week sessions went down to one- just Dom and in this timeline I was able to see a range of emotions from him. Dom was always pleasant and a joker almost. But I could see behind the facade and one day, I called him out on it. He tried at first to lie to me but then he gave in and let out a whirlwind of expletives. I matched him. We cursed back and forth for thirty minutes and then we both broke out laughing until we cried. Dom was under a lot of pressure to do the right thing, to take care of Peggy and also to atone for past mistakes. He was in the belly of the beast now and with every deterioration of Peggy’s health, he came closer and closer to his truth.
After Peggy’s passing, we saw less of Dominick. He moved out of the area and began traveling and dating! This was his second wind, I was so so happy to see this for him. See for five years, I have only really seen him as the caretaker. Now I was able to see him as him- a man full of life, love and desire to learn and grow. He was unstoppable.
The last time I saw Dominick was this summer. He came to our tent at the Manassas First Fridays in Old Town and it was such a beautiful surprise. Rob and I hugged him and chatted with him for awhile. He was full of life and joy. That is the memory I will hold on to of him. It’s funny because after that day, Rob and I said to each other, “This is the last time we will see him. This is our goodbye.” At the time we thought it was because of his move to MD, we did not know it was to be his final goodbye.
This was my fifth lesson- you never know when it will be the last time you see someone, so make every moment count. I am glad that my last farewell with Dominick was true to our form- him laughing and having a good time (at my expense) and me working and doing what I love. It was a beautiful sunny day and Rob was eating an ice cream with Dominick. It couldn’t have been a more perfect day.
These people, Dominick and Peggy became more than clients to me. They were friends. They came to my house, to my personal parties and more. I knew about their children and grandchildren. I am so very thankful to the family  for letting me know of Dom’s passing. Even though I have work, I am cancelling it so I can be there. Life is precious and death is an opportunity to celebrate someone one last time. I plan to celebrate the engineer, the nurse and all the lessons we learned together.

Codependent or Healthy in Love?

codependent relationship

Relationships are a funny thing. We hear often that famous saying, “Can’t live with them, can’t live without them.” Isn’t that the truth?

Most times we say it in love and with laughter, but for some, this phrase is an actual statement into a deeper issue, one that supercedes fun, light and love. It’s about codependency.

What IS codependency? According to Wikipedia, codependency is the term used to describe a dysfunctional relationship where one person supports or enables another person’s addiction, poor mental health, immaturity, irresponsibility, or under-achievement.

Among the core characteristics of codependency, the most common theme is an excessive reliance on other people for approval and a sense of identity. Like whoa.

Aren’t we supposed to have our OWN identity in relationships?

While for most of us, we believe so, for some codependent people, the belief is that they are not complete until they are in a relationship and that person they are in love with, completes them.

jerry maguire

I mean who can forget that scene in the Jerry Maguire movie when he says those same words, “You complete me.” 

It sounds romantic and I am sure for some, it is a desire to hear these exact words but I urge you to STOP! It is another Hollywood scenario that sounds better on screen than in real life.

Remember 50 Shades of Grey? Very exciting movie and book, but think about it in real life. Think of it especially with a partner who may not be a milionaire and owns a hundred companies and looks like Christian Grey. Hey realistically most of us can’t or won’t attract that kind of guy into our lives in this lifetime (being real not pessimistic). Would it be as romantic if your guy lived on his friends’ couches and didn’t hold down a job? I thought so.

In life, we have to learn to discern what sounds more like a great fantasy or what can actually work in our life. Most times, romantic fantasies need to stay just there, in fantasy.

Here are three signs of a codependent relationship. If you notice some or all of these, hang tight. I got you. I will also talk about connections in love xo.

Signs of a Codependent Relationship:

1. Your Sense of Purpose is delayed as you tend to your partner’s needs 

When I was  younger, I was very  much caught up in a codependent relationship with a boyfriend. I was a rising star at my college and given many blessings to advance forward in my path, but truthfully, I cared more about how he felt than my future. I remember there was a leadership conference and each college in the NorthEast United States were allowed to send two representatives from their school. Of course I was selected to represent my school and guess what I did? I threw it away to spend the week with my boyfriend.

When you are in a codependent relationship, the other person seems more important than you. Their needs, their desires, their wants are catered to and yours barely are acknowledged.

To break out of this mold, (and yes you can) the power scales need to be balanced. Start by taking inventory of a month. Are you only doing activities your partner wants to do or are your needs met? If you notice a tipping of the scales in their direction, have a talk with them and let them know that this is an issue for you and you would like it to be more balanced in your relationship. Either they will agree with you or not, and then you get to decide how that goes. But for now, start with inventory. Take an honest look at your relationship and decide how it feels.

 In its broadest definition, a codependent is someone who cannot function from his or her innate self and whose thinking and behavior is instead organized around another person, or even a process, or substance.

2. You believe the other person is responsible for your happiness 

In the first sign mentioned above, it is expected that the scales are as balanced as they can be to make it an equal relationship. This balancing does NOT equal out to your partner catering to you to make you happy.

One time I was arguing with a boyfriend when I was 14. I remember this clearly because of what I said and his response.

Me: ” I am so unhappy! It is your responsibility to make me happy in this relationship!”

Him: “Well then we are screwed because it is not my job to make you happy, that is your job. My job is to focus on my happiness and together we create a happy relationship.”

Lord that boy was smart. Smart and right.

No one can make you happy. YOU know this! But yet, once we get in relationships, it seems like all logic goes out the window and for some of us, we turn into whiny little babies who need constant attention.

We start placing blame when things go wrong and never think to look at ourselves. Why is this?

Sometimes we place the heavy obligation of happiness on another’s shoulder because we don’t want to face the truth that the relationship is not meeting our needs. We may know that it is time to move on but fear of being alone or dying single, keeps us in place. Then when we stay, we become unhappy and place that blame on our partners’ shoulders.

Be the bigger person. If you are not happy in your relationship, leave. If you are not happy with yourself, get help. Whatever it is, do anything but blame your partner. Because you know what? If your partner truly is the source of your unhappiness, then go back to step 1 and leave. It really is that simple.

I believe some people feel if they complain about it, it will somehow magically change to what they want. This is not how the Law of Attraction works. In fact, the more you complain about a source of displeasure, the more of it you will attract. I have tried repeatedly to share this information with several people in my life and guess what happens? Absolutely nothing. They keep complaining, and they keep staying in the rut they are in. In life, you have to know when to help and when to walk away and for these individuals, I tend to walk away.

If you can’t create a happy life using the resources you were given or have attained in life, then no one else will do it for you. This is your burden to bear. Figure it out. 

3) You need to be around that person all the time 

When you are with them, you feel ALIVE and full of love and happiness. When you are away from them, you call/text/snapchat often. When you can’t reach them, you are dying on the inside. If you do have peace and quiet in your alone time, it is because you know they are at work or the dentist and can’t access their phone. You feel happy and content.

Sounds familiar?

Being alone is necessary. It is in our times of silence and solitude that we uncover the parts of ourselves that need the work or can do with some improvements. When you are around someone all the time, (and yes it can be the same person or different people), you are engaged in interactions. There is no time to reflect, meditate and do some self-analysis.

I think some people use people for constant companionship because they don’t want to have introspection! They know on a deeper level, there are some issues to sort out but don’t have the drive, interest or courage to do so.

I have met some highly functional and successful broken people and have been impressed! They have shrouded themselves in such a strong invisibility cloak, it would make Harry Potter jealous!

Try to factor in some alone time away from your partner. How does it feel?

If it brings up anxiety, stress or fears, then you are onto something. You may have hidden out in a codependent relationship for awhile but cleverly crafted it as, “We are a team” or “We do things together”.

No you are not. You were born into this world alone and you will go out alone. This precious partner of yours will not sacrifice their life to go with you at the end of your timeline. And more than likely, they will eventually move on and be with someone else until their end of time. This is natural because at the core of it, we each need to survive and thrive.

Now that we have some signs of codependency, let’s look at some signs of a healthy relationship. For some of you, there is a possibility to change a codependent relationship to a healthy one so why not try now? Just because you have identified being in a codependent relationship, doesn’t mean you have to be stuck in it. Here are three signs of a healthy relationship:

1) You Respect each other’s Boundaries 

My partner loves riding his Harley and loves his dog. He will not tolerate anyone in his life that does not respect his need to ride and his time with his dog. I can tell you that I am not particularly interested in riding on the back of his motorcycle and I am not a pet owner or dog lover (I know shoot me). How do we make it work? We respect the boundaries.

I join him on his weekend bike rallies by either driving there with him or staying back so he can go with his friends who also love to ride. When we plan our schedules, we factor in time for him to go riding. I find something else to do. With his dog Silas, we include him in our plans and then we create events without him. We work together while respecting each other’s boundaries. 

When you truly listen to your partner, you are not listening to respond but rather to understand. What makes them tick? What sets them off? And what can you do in the process to respect their process while also respecting yours?

Boundaries are needed in relationships! It lets each person know the level of safety and comfort available based on needs. Once needs are respected, each partner can relax more into the relationship and develop deeper bonds.

Take a personal inventory of your own relationships now. Do you know your partner’s boundaries? Do you respect and uphold them? What can you do differently to show respect for what your partner requires?

When you respect your partner’s boundaries, you allow room for connection because they trust you. They trust that you will not hurt them, not by your words but by your actions. This means everything to a person. I know it does for me.

If you don’t know what your boundaries or your partner’s boundaries are, no problem! Start making a list! I like to make a page with three columns and write down all the things I want in a relationship, what I can compromise on and what I cannot or will  not tolerate. For example, I want a kind person in relationship, I can compromise on if they are a pet owner and I will not tolerate smokers. Once you make your list, ask your partner to do the same and it doesn’t matter if you have been together for 2 months or 20 years, start now in communicating! Boundaries can change over time as we age, so don’t be surprised if your partner says things that seem new to you. This is the process of connecting and if you stay with it, you will reach deeper levels of your relationship!

2) You have no problem saying NO to your partner

One time I was really into studying the ancient arts of tantric practice and I dragged my partner along with me. We were both in a room with our tantric teacher, me in a sarong and him in a sarong that barely covered his body. He looked delicious but uncomfortable! He went through the private session with me and loved it but he put his foot down and refused to go to a group class with nakedness where we talked about intimacy! He drew his line!

And you know what I did? I respected it. I didn’t push, beg, manipulate or anything of the sort. I agreed and found ways to continue my tantra study through books and online courses and then used the practices with him in the sanctity of our home.

In a relationship, you can say no. You don’t have to cosign to everything. Sometimes I see women doing the craziest things to please a man! Things they would never do but did it to keep his attention. Guess what happens? Invariably a breakup happens and those same women go bat s**t crazy! You know why right? Because they sacrificed their time, money and effort to be with him and they can’t for the life of themselves, figure out why he wouldn’t want to stay.

Say yes to the things that make you happy and interested to do. When my partner asks me to go visit his daughter in Myrtle Beach, hell yes please! When he asks me to go to a football game in the dead of winter, not so much.

You have to have a firm basis of stability in your relationship to be able to say no though. If you are insecure and unsure about yourself and the relationship, chances are you are going to keep saying yes to things even though you rather not. What happens is you will start to break down energetically and exhaustion sets in. You overextend yourself and you will feel it in the long run. Concerning your partner, you may shift blame to them for your tiredness or crankiness even though you were the one that said yes!

Save yourselves and your relationship this nightmare by just honoring where you are, what you need and what you can and cannot do. Trust me, they will love you for it and sometimes absence makes the heart grow fonder.

3) You have a life outside of your relationship

When I do relationship coaching, I invariable start out with my clients drawing a pie chart and having them fill in each pie piece with what is needed for a well rounded life. Some write health, love, social, money, career, spirituality etc…. And then I have them color in the pie pieces on a scale from 1-10 with 1 meaning little to no effort and 10 as maxium effort.

For my codependent clients, most times the love piece is fully colored in and for the other parts there is a lot of blank paper!

Guess what happens to these same people who have break up? They absolutely crumble.

When you place all your worth, time and attention on any ONE of those pie pieces, your whole world can end if that piece is taken away. It is important to have a life outside of your relationship. Start by asking these questions:

  • Do I have a daily spiritual practice?
  • Do I spend enough time with my friends and social circle?
  • Do I work hard enough or too hard?
  • Do I take vacations?
  • Do I work out daily or weekly?
  • Do i spend enough time with my partner, too much or too little?

When you start asking these questions, you train yourself to see where your attention is. If you noticed in one week, you never meditated, worked out, made a home cooked meal and spent all your time at work….you can see how imbalanced a life is.

Create a life where you thrive in all areas of your life so if one unfortunately has to be removed, you can mourn in appropriation. It doesn’t consume you because there are so many other pieces that are working.

In the end, we all are pursuing happiness. If we attach this happiness to a relationship, we can create sadness by its departure.

Learn how to have healthy habits for the sake of your healthy body, positive mind and thriving soul. In return, your relationships in your life will blossom as you now have more to contribute to them than take from them. How wonderful that will be for everyone!

Until  next time, stay in the love and the light

5 Tips to a Mature Breakup

breakup-reasons-for-relationships_0

A few months ago I experienced yet another breakup in my life. You would think I would be safe from this trauma/drama in making it to my 40s, but no life has other plans for me. Including heartache and despair.

The breakup I am referring to is one with a close friend of mine and not a boyfriend. It seems I have a lot more breakups with friends these days and I guess I should be thankful that it is not intimate love related, but still it hurts. It hurts just as bad.

However in this story, there is a silver lining. In fact the silver lining is so shiny, it just damn well blots out the entire dark cloud. Why? Because despite the breakup, my friend and I were able to leave on amicable terms and I thought that was pretty amazing.

I am pretty sure there are many people who face the same situations I face on a daily basis. However no one is talking about it or they are suffering quietly about it. No need! There IS a way to end a friendship/relationship when the time is up and there really doesn’t need to be any struggle.

Here are five simple tips to achieve the breakup of your dreams (seriously) so you can walk away feeling lighter and free:

  1. There is no Right or Wrong, Good or Bad. It just is. 

My friend and I had a good run in our friendship for a couple of years but with the start of 2018, we both knew the change was coming. We weren’t sure what was about to happen but we knew instinctively that things were about to change and we needed to proceed with caution.

As the months progressed, it became evident that the change was about US. We no longer could be in each others’ lives the way we had been. Life was pulling us in different directions. I am a middle aged mom to two young boys, in a committed relationship and working full time in my three businesses. To protect her privacy and identity, I wouldn’t describe her situation but let’s just say, it was different from mine. And the differences were becoming increasingly more obvious as the months wore on. What drew us together in the first place was now vanishing quickly and we were clasping at straws desperate to save our friendship.

When our breakup finally happened, I am relieved to share that neither of us thought bad things of the other. In fact it’s the opposite! We layered praise upon praise to each other in our last breakup communication to the point where it was comical! I laughed a little, imagining someone reading our texts and thinking in a thought bubble, “Are they breaking up or making up? I can’t tell!”.

But it wasn’t for show either. We meant it. We meant every word we said when we said we enjoyed our friendship and our memories would be kept close to our hearts.

When you breakup with someone, more often than not, it is because life pulls you apart not because you stop loving that person. The love is still there but it’s not enough to sustain a relationship. So you end amicably and don’t point fingers. No one has to be the bad guy and for that, I am thankful to her for not making me out to be one.

2) Be Honest and Communicate

When we hit a rough patch we did the worst thing we could do. We holed up in our respective corners and avoided each other like the plague. Great. Of course it didn’t solve anything and it only made the confusion and discomfort worse.

When we finally decided to come out of our shells and talk about it, we felt immediate relief and peace restored! We were both feeling the same way but out of love and respect for each other, we didn’t want to say anything! We didn’t want to hurt each others’ feelings. Aww.

In finally communicating our personal truths, we realized just how much we had drifted from each other and how we could not fulfill each other needs list anymore. It made the breakup much more easier as we realized it wasn’t personal.

Sometimes when we go through things, we can only see it from our vantage point. When you communicate with someone, you can learn how they see it too and most times, its not the way you see it. It’s a valuable learning lesson that has helped soften the blow of a breakup and helped me to see things from someone else’s perspective. A game changer so to say.

3) Be Open and Be Vulnerable 

While communication is key to having a successful breakup, it cannot happen this way if guards are up and barriers surround each person. Space needs to be created for open and honest communication where each person is wiling to be vulnerable to share how they are feeling.

Rough stuff! I decided in the conversation to be the first one to open up and talk about how I was feeling. My vulnerability caused her to let her guard down and speak truthfully about what I did that hurt her for which I apologized. She too apologized for things she did that hurt me and was clear to let me know that she didn’t mean to ever hurt me. It was one of the most profoundly touching moments in my life. Two women, speaking from their heart with care and concern for the other. Powerful.

Hurt people hurt people. When you want to end a relationship with someone, attacking them will not make it an easy process. Instead of pointing fingers to the person and playing the “blame game” try speaking only to your hurts, feelings and emotions. Let them SEE you and what you are going through. Chances are, your vulnerability will cause them to be kind to you and also be honest.

4) State Clearly the Goals and Objectives
Sometimes the end of a relationship feels ominous. No one discusses what the actual outcome will look like or feel like, so then situations come up where you run into them at the local coffee shop and everyone feels awkward and out of place. Reminds me of my first school dance. Awkward.

When we ended, we noted that due to business relations we would still see each other from time to time and we were both ok with that. By acknowledging the social/work/family obligations you have with them, it makes it less awkward when you do see them at these social events.

I also stated my objectives for the breakup because really, what kind of b***h would I be if I just broke up friendships for fun? There were specific reasons for this breakup with the most noticeable one being that I was holding my friend back. She is meant for great things and in her need to help me with my businesses and my dreams, I saw too clearly she was sacrificing her own. She needed to go, even if I had to kick her out, she needed it because she deserved so much better than what I could offer her.

In being that open and honest in communication about my objectives, it brought her alot of relief and happiness. I could FEEL her exhale and feel better within herself. At the end of the day, a breakup is rejection and no one likes to feel rejected. Once she realized that I wasn’t rejecting her or her friendship but actually supporting her in achieving her goals and dreams, she felt so much better. And you know what? That made me immensely happy! Like I said earlier, there is no good guy or bad guy here. We are all just walking each other home, and sometimes we chose not to walk together.

5) Still be their Cheerleader 

After all the heart wrenching talk, it was time to bring the conversation to a close and I could feel the sadness from her as I did from me. I vowed to myself to still be on the sidelines cheering her on because truthfully, there is no ill will here. She is a great person and I was so lucky to have her in my life for the time that I did. I was blessed.

The next day I woke up and sent her a motivational FB meme in a private chat. I wanted her to smile and know that I still believed in her. Even though our lives are taking us in different directions, it doesn’t mean I will stop caring or loving her. I truly will continue to do so, as I know she will for me. It’s just not in the cards for us at this time.

In the end, we never really know what’s to come in our lives. Sometimes people circle back into our lives and sometimes they came for a season and left when it was over. Despite the differences, if you chose to have a mature breakup, then you create a world of love and care, connections and possibilities. Just thinking of those things make me feel joyful, light and peaceful. I think everyone deserves to feel this way, don’t you?

Here’s to happy endings (smile) and joyful beginnings. May we know them, have them and be open to receiving them.

In love and light,

Uma
