Ask Alan

Carol's rut is leading to MAJOR life changes. And I see her at the tracks before it's all over!

August 2007


Dear Alan,

I'm not even sure if I should be asking this question. You know what they say about those who look for trouble. But I feel like something is missing in life. But I've got a great life – two loving children, a doting husband and engaging career. Still I'm finding it more and more difficult to get out of bed in the morning. HELP!



Dear Carol,

The first impression I get from your energy is that it's all about success. You really do seem to have the Midas touch. I want to connect you to starting up things. You have a fantastic talent for translating ideas into reality. And that's an integral part of your career. I see people coming to you. But they aren't just coming for advice. It feels much more hands-on. I have you running the show.

Now having said that, I might say that you are living proof that it is possible to have too much of a good thing. Or it's rather that I'm sensing what was once good for you is no longer. I'm being shown that you've recently been advised to take time off work. And I feel you've done that. However, from what I sense it's not done much good.

We've not mentioned it yet, but what we are really talking about here is the R-word. Your routine, fabulous though it may be, has become a RUT!

Let's look at what's going on below the surface, at an energetic level. There's the archetypal energy of the workaholic in you. It's just who you are. It's not a bad thing. Trying to tell you to stop would be like trying to tell my sheep not to bleat. They won't stop – and neither will you. And I wouldn't want to discourage you from being incredibly active. I'll say it again, it's just who you are.

What is at issue is the focus and direction of your energy. I keep seeing you help others kick various projects off – it really is like you are the dream maker for those who come to you. Consequently, you never have enough time for yourself. From an energetic standpoint, you are burnt out.

My intuition tells me that this isn't the first time you've felt this way. I want to go back 6 years. There again was the time off work and the soul searching. But in the end, you forced yourself to buck up and get back in the saddle. This saddle image is important. There's a very important horse connection coming up with you.

Your spirit has been trying to get your attention for over 6 years now. You've done your best to ignore it all. But that's not going to work going forward. You've got some massive changes coming up for you. And if you are completely honest with yourself, you already know what they are. You don't need me or any other psychic to tell you what they are. But I'll relate what I see – perhaps it will validate what you're contemplating.

Here goes and it's going to be to the point because that's how you hear things best. The career is over. You've had enough. From what I see, there's nowhere else you want to go in it. That's the bad news. The good news is that you're experiencing a calling. This is higher and deeper at the same time. It's your spirit talking. It's doing its darnedest to get you to where you are supposed to be to do what we might say is going to become your vocation.

This is where the horse connection comes back in. I am seeing you with horses and at a racetrack. No, don't worry – you're not going to gamble it all away. But I'm connecting you with the running or purchase of a racetrack. I feel it's something you've always wanted to do. The competitiveness of the race speaks to you as does the beauty and grace of the horses.

Everything I sense says go for it. It's time to use your golden touch for yourself.

Will everyone in your life support you? I wish it were that easy. But what you are experiencing is something of a spiritual calling. And these are never easy. It's as if the rules have been changed. It will take time for everyone to get to grips with what you're going to do and the risks that you are to take. There's also going to be some envy and jealousy going around. Don't listen to any of it.

Follow your heart and your dream. If you do, you simply cannot fail. The Powers That Be won't allow it.

I'll wish you good luck – but you really don't need it.

With that, I wish you all the best.
