Becoming good friends with a fellow reiki practitioner in Hong Kong was a miracle to me. However, we all have our destined paths to follow. My newly-found soul sister soon returned to her home country with her husband. I was gutted when I first heard about her decision - I am a human being after all. As a believer of positive affirmations and a fan of 'The Secret', I began to send out my cosmic order for more spiritual friends to enter my life.
With Mercury and Mars in retrograde at various times during the past few months, I've had my emotional ups and downs. I originally attributed them to the fact that I had too much time on my hands during the major breaks (e.g. Christmas and mid-term) to feel sorry for myself. But then, even as I resumed my usual work routine, I felt something was amiss. A few individuals around me noticed this change and invited me along to meet their friends as a way of expanding my social circle. As grateful as I was to their kindness, I still felt something just wasn't right. I couldn't explain it at all. I knew meeting these people may even exacerbate the situation so I declined their offers. I knew I was happy with my work, that for once, I am in the right place doing the right thing. It wasn't until I finally met another spiritual soul with similar interests to me that I realised what was missing in my life - a circle of friends in my vicinity to really share my spiritual beliefs with. I don't just want to 'preach' but to really discuss and appreciate the teachings with like-minded individuals, and to provide support for one another. The heaviness in my heart finally lifted and the spark within me re-ignited. I feel this is another 'booster shot' to my belief system; that however strange and unacceptable my New Age beliefs may appear to other people, I am to stand by those teachings because I am a lightworker and nothing will change that.
