In this weeks episode Betsy talks about some experiences that showed her that life is magical and there is so much support we don’t realize is around us every day. She shares a story about Miley and how she knows she’s loving her from the other side. This show will uplift you and help you feel more connected to those you may have lost this holiday season.
Welcome to the Art of Living big podcast. My name is Betsy pake. I’m an author, a speaker, and a trainer of NLP and hypnotherapy. And I’m focused on helping you understand and design your life with the power of the subconscious. This podcast is designed to help you think differently about what could be possible for your life. Now, let’s go live big
Hi, welcome, everyone. Welcome to the Art of Living big, I just recorded the best episode, like the best episode. And then I looked down to press stop, and I had never actually hit go.
Oh, my gosh, well, maybe we can recreate it. So hi, welcome.
I don’t know if you’re listening to this, like before Christmas after Christmas. I’m late. I’m a day late. It’s Friday. I was supposed to have this episode out on Thursday. It’s been so hectic. And I know you’ve probably felt that too. And I just was like, I thought I what I thought was like, maybe I’ll skip this week. And then next week, I’ll do an episode. So many things have been happening. And just with the holidays, in general, it’s really busy.
But then that felt like when you text a friend, and then they don’t text you back, right? And you’re like, what happened? They were supposed to be here. And I never told you last week, I wasn’t going to be here. So I’ll tell you now next week, I’m not going to be here, because I am taking this season to like really dream a little bit. You know, we’ve been like tightening up some systems in the business. We just launched the alchemy Institute again, which was a big push and a lot of work. And we’re re
defining how we are pulling people through the process and what kind of support we’re giving them. And it’s just so much different. So there’s been a lot of work on that end. And so I just was like, I really want a time to just step back, you know, and just chill out and do whatever it is I feel like doing in the moment that I feel like doing it. Do you know what I mean? And so that is what I’m doing this holiday season. So I thank you for being patient with me. I won’t be here next week. So this will be the last episode of 2022. But I will see you guys next right after the new year. And I have some fun things planned. Because I know I’m doing systems and planning. So I have some really great ideas and some things that I want to share. So
alright, so one thing before I really dive into too much I want to tell you. Alright, so if you’ve been here for a little while, you remember, when I had cat on, she was an energy healer. And it was probably like two years ago that I had her on the show. And at that time, I worked with her pretty extensively. And if you remember how cat works, so cat,
like scans, I’m going to put it in my own words, but you can listen to that episode if you want. She scans your body and she sees gridlines and then she adjusts your grid lines. So that’s seems so abstract, but from my perspective, I think cat is really amazing. And she just helps you release and shed things. And I feel like there’s a lot of shedding energetically that she helps you with. And so anyway, what I was going to tell you was I started working with her again, and for 2023 One of the things that I’m really working on is going really a whole lot deeper, energetically and
and subconsciously. So this year for me 2022 was like the year of adventure. Right? I started out in,
in Florida at the beach. That’s where I went right after the new year or maybe I was there on New Year’s Eve. So I was there for a month I came home for just a short time I turned around and went to Iceland for a month. Like I’ve been in Sedona I’ve been in Key West. I’ve been into Sedona a couple times. I went to Scottsdale for an event. I’ve been like I’ve just I’ve been to Vermont. I’ve been all over. Okay, so this year was really my year of adventure. So
next year is really going to be my year of going deeper. Right? So anyway, so I’m working with Kat and
we start our work together. And what I do when she’s doing this is I have her on speakerphone and I lay on my back on my bed like
Like just, you know, palms facing up.
and just relaxing. And then she does her thing. And she does some stuff. And then she comes in like every 15 minutes and checks on me. Then she does like another sweep and then comes back and checks. And I can feel her when she’s in there. Right? It’s like, I’ll have a lot of muscle twitches in the area where she is.
Sometimes, like, if she’s in my torso, like in my belly, I can feel like my things in my belly moving around, right? It’s like energy moving, I can feel it. And And anyway, so we’re doing our session last week, she does a scan comes back and checks in does another skin comes back. And she’s like,
I don’t know what it is. But I like is there something with like a pink turtleneck? Like, are you thinking about a pink turtleneck or like a pink scarf or something? And I was like, oh my god, I was wearing this bright, bright. And if you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen it. But this like fluorescent pink, fuzzy sweater that I got, like a couple years ago, and Taylor and it zips up, right. So it’s like a turtleneck because it zips up high on your neck and bright pink. And I thought oh my gosh, like she can see that. Right, or sensei or whatever it is that she does. And so
I wanted to share that with you because I wanted to offer this idea that there is a level of
there is a level of energy. And that may not be perceived by us. Right? So there are people I think that have special perception.
Like my friend Trish and like cat, where they sense things that me, you know, you or me? Or maybe you can but like can’t sense. And
you know, when she recognized that I was wearing that. Like she didn’t know what it was. So I don’t know that she saw a picture or she got a feeling that it was this pink turtleneck. And why was this so prevalent? It’s because it was so darn bright. I’m sure she was probably like, I can’t see anything. But she had this like experience of it. And I think sometimes
I think sometimes we
don’t we can’t see it. So we think the bowl, it must not be that. And especially like this time of year, right? Like we’re missing people in our lives that have gone. And we have experiences where we’re like, oh, that’s that’s just a coincidence. Or I know, I think I feel them. But it’s probably just because I’m thinking about them. Or we dismiss a lot. Because we can’t recognize it in a way that makes them using air quotes like sense to us. And so we just dismiss it and say that’s not real. And maybe maybe you did that just now when I said like about cat, like that’s not real, because I can’t experience it, that it’s not real. And I want to just offer you the idea that maybe it is possible. And that maybe this holiday season, when you’re missing people in your lives, or you wish that they were around that there is another realm that you’re just not perceiving. And that may be those moments where you’re like, Oh, I feel like they’re here. Or I feel like I’m I feel like there’s like there’s something that maybe you can trust that and maybe you can say, You know what? It’s not just a coincidence, you know, this isn’t just a weird, funky thing. This is this is real. And I’m having a moment of perception. And I’m having a moment where I’m getting to experience that in a totally different way. You know, I think we dismiss a lot of that, but because we live so much in the physical plane, but I think it’s important to recognize there’s a spiritual realm, right? There’s an energy realm, there’s a physical realm, and that we can play in all of those, you know, we can partake in all of those things.
You know, you guys remember
last year my dog died. So it was like April 2021. My dog died. Miley. And I mean, I mean, I was heartbroken. I’m still heartbroken about Miley. But I had her I had her cremated and so I had her in like this, like wooden box that they gave her that I had to buy. I had her cremated and it has her name on it and it was fine. But it was like this box and it felt weird. She was on the bookshelf and I felt like she was I don’t know, it just felt weird. And then it felt like what am I going to do? Like what’s going to happen? Like we have, like, when I like what are we doing? Are you throwing it in the trash like when I go like what’s
happening, what are we doing? And so it just always felt kind of strange. She was so important to me. And I didn’t. I am so glad I have her ashes. I’m so glad I have her ashes. And it felt weird that she was just in this box on the bookcase. Right? But whatever. What else do you do? So anyhow, my daughter got a job this fall. And with her first paycheck, she hired a potter to make me an urn. And if you’re on Facebook, you may have seen it.
But it’s an urn that looks like her. She sent in pictures of Miley. So one of the ears is up, and one of them’s down, the little tail looks the same. It’s all just like her. It’s so cool. I mean, it is the coolest thing. And it just happened that her little collar fit on her perfectly. So I have kept her collar. So it’s, it’s perfect. It’s perfect. And so, you know, we took her out of the box and shoved her and then this other thing, and this ceramic thing that looks like her. And then when she was on the bookcase, I felt like she was with me. You know, I felt like she was kind of watching over me with my desk. And so I started moving around the house. Now just bear with me here. Like I know, this is a little strange, but it was kind of funny at first like I was like, I feel her so much more. Like I feel her and it felt rude to like, keep her like in the bookcase where she couldn’t really see out. Just hang with me. I know. I know. But if you’ve lost somebody or a pet, you know what I mean? But But I but having her in that container, I felt like I was able to
I don’t know, I felt like I was able to
maybe imagine like the imagining I could, that she was around felt more real. Right. So anyhow, we’d go in the living room, I put her under the Christmas tree. Yesterday, I got a new heated blanket. And I was like, Oh, she would love this. So I like moved her so she could be she could watch me sleep and the new heated blanket. I know it sounds so silly, but it brought me a lot of peace. And it was actually really fun. Which is it was fun. Right? So it was fun. And so I’m going to keep doing whatever feels fun. But I felt like wow, I can. I’m getting an idea that of what she would say or think now. Here’s why I tell you this.
Having her in that particular vessel made it easier for my conscious brain to say it’s her because it kind of looks like her. Were before I was dismissing stuff. I’m sure I was feeling it.
Great because I was feeling the spiritual realm. But I was dismissing it because it didn’t look in the way that would make sense to my brain for it to look and for whatever reason, when she got put into this little urn that looks like her. I was able to like make that leap. It’s so comforting and feels so like, good. I actually saw this woman on Tik Tok. My daughter and I were messaging about it. I was like, oh, no, she actually had her. It was her cat. I think she had her cat taxidermied. But she was saying how it brought her so much peace. It was just like a little sleeping cat, you know. And I was like, I sent it to my daughter. And I was like, I should have gotten her taxidermied and my daughter was like, Oh my God. But I think that’s what it is. It’s like the vessel, it looks like something that makes sense to our brain to this like physical realm that we’re so used to being in and being told that we have to be in. Right, that’s what we’re we’re told is that this is a physical reality, you have to hustle and work and, like, push your feelings aside for the most part, right? It’s a patriarchal society. And I’m not saying that against men, because men are just as much impacted by that as females are as women. And
and I think that that like cuts us off from this magic, this magical side. So you know what, if this holiday you felt really supported? And what if the things that you were working on right now that were hard? You knew you had a team that was just outside of your awareness but still there that could be supporting you or giving you ideas? You know, I ask out loud all the time he helped me with this helped me figure this out. helped me make this make sense. Give me some ideas. I asked before I go to bed, like helped me work on this helped me heal whatever has to be healed when I’m sleeping. I mean, I asked that all the time. Let’s make good use of the time, right when I’m just laying there unconscious every night. So
I wanted to offer you this whole idea this holiday that maybe you let your
Self feel the support, you let yourself feel a connection with somebody that’s just not visible to your physical experience. And that you feel all the love that the holiday season has for you. And that you use that you use that energy, and that love and that positive force to move into 2023 and a wave where you feel really supported. And that no matter how alone, you may feel in your physical experience, if you do know that you have this team that’s always working for you and always supporting you and always here. As you move into 2023.
