The morning I left two weeks ago on the Silver Savior journey in my Airstream was like any other morning. There was no one to see me off to speak of. In fact the person I asked to video the departure even forgot to push the record button! So, down the road I went. So many emotions go through your head when you are living out loud, from “you got this, this is great, to who do you think you are, this is shit!” So by the time I arrived in Sedona, besides lots of great hikes and meeting people, I decided to pop in to see a psychic when I passed the sign in the window. After all, I have always been fascinated by people that use telepathic powers to make a living and maybe she would grant me an interview. The session was interesting, not earth shattering, and at one point she looked deep in my eyes and said,
“I see you”.
My head started to spin and I began to become grounded again. Time was a blink and I found myself walking out into the hot desert sun wondering what just happened.
There was nothing earth shattering that this beautiful 75 year old woman said, but still I was stunned by my encounter with her. Then, three simple words became clear. I See You. I mean, isn’t that what we all want and need to hear? Wouldn’t there be healing in the world twice over if we all just stopped and looked at each other despite all the hate, division and hard times right now and look into each other’s eyes and say, “I see you.”
To push yourself to create a future that really empowers you is daunting to say the least. But, it will be the most important thing you do with your life. And the people you will encounter will be there for a reason. Embrace them. Help them and yourself to see the possibilities of a new day. I don’t need to tell you how important this is as we go into the final two weeks of a very tumultuous election.
As I roll down the road now, I try even more to truly see someone, from the homeless man on the street corner to the cashier at the grocery store and say with my eyes and words...
I see you,
Nancy + Team Sweet Bird
