The Last Day

Day 5 of our adventure

Our last full day in PEI, Charlottetown. We had decided that this was going to be the day of doing nothing. After our wild adventure yesterday in search of Anne of Green Gables and our appointment with Nora Cummins (ThetaHealing Practitioner), we really needed to rest.

We slept in and relaxed. We were both very quite and exhausted, emotionally, physically and spiritually. We joined up for breakfast and the rain and wind were coming down pretty good, so we didn’t feel guilty for staying in.

At one point I heard the rain stop, I have been wanting to go to this one little shop downtown so I asked if Krysta wanted to go. We both dressed warmly and meandered down a few blocks. Nora from the day before had suggested we both take sea salt baths. At the store we made it to, they had some. We both bought a bag and slowly made our way back to the Inn. We stopped here and there and had lunch and started back to relax back at the Inn.

Krysta wanted to nap so I brought my laptop and such down to the dining area and set up shop so she can rest in peace. As I sat downstairs, I noticed people coming and going and we would strike up conversations they would leave and I would go back to writing my blogs. At one point this gentleman walked in and was trying to find out the wi-fi code. We started talking and he and his wife took their young children out of school for a year so they could travel. They were from Australia and got here 2 days later. They were exhausted, he told me about some of theirs travels as to where they had been. One place he said was Bali.

Bali is on my list, between now and next April I will be going there. So when he said that I started asking him questions. He gave me some info as to where and whom they stayed with and whatnot. So I am now equipped with more information for when I buy my plane ticket. Very excited about that…

I stepped away from my computer for a few minutes and Krysta came down and wrote a note saying she is going to take her sea salt bath. When she had come back down we both worked on some things and then we decided to have a deeper conversation which were needed and deep. The day before working with Nora, things came up for me that I have been ignoring and subconsciously wishing would just disappear. They struck such a cord with me that I became instantly vulnerable and for the first time cried in front of a complete stranger. Like convulsing crying.

So when Krysta and I started talking I was in the middle of saying something and it happened again, convulsing crying. I was glad to be able to release such emotions and let them go. Last night too, my friend found out her uncle passed on. So she was feeling that as well. This day and last night were very heavy.

And without even knowing it, Krysta mentioned she just wanted fried foods. So we looked up a place around the corner and made our way to a pub. For some good old fashion bar food. Mind you, I haven’t eaten fried foods in months, I kinda forgot about that. So we go and order these apps and everything was fantastic until later that evening.

We get back to the Inn, Krysta is getting ready for bed, I still need my bath so I start it up. I sat in there trying to stay in it for 45 mins. I had to get out after 20 mins, I was well over heated and super wobbly. I get ready for bed and crawl in, just to be woken up at some peculiar hour because my stomach was in a tizzy.

I go to the bathroom sweating and with a killer migraine. I lay on the floor on the tile where its much cooler. My stomach didn’t like that. So I sat in front of the toilet thinking oh my god, if I throw up my head is going to pop off. I needed to find an elastic for my hair. I stood up and almost fell over and found one right next to Excedrin migraine pills…I am so awesome I thought. I felt like I was going to have to wake up Krysta to go to the store and buy me some in the middle of the night.

I make my way back to the bathroom where I bow my head to the porcelain goddess and realize I am going to have to do this myself. This is not something I enjoy doing, ever, but at this moment I had too. I stuck my fingers down and up it all came. All I kept thinking was, I really need to be better for my drive tomorrow. We had to drive home from Canada in the morning and it was going to be about 9 hours long or more.

I finally managed to crawl back in bed, I took 2 pills and begged the angels for relief. Next thing I know it’s 630 am. I pop 2 more and go back to sleep. I finally got up and although I wasn’t 100% I still felt good, slightly airy but coherent.

Lesson learned, again, with fried foods. I forgot I hadn’t eaten fried foods in a long time and then I way over ate. So since I have been home, no fried foods.

Anne of Green Gables

Day 4 of Adventure

Today was supposed to be all sun and no rain all day. So we decided that this is the day we would go venture around the island for memories of Anne of Green Gables. We started off by driving 45 mins in search of the “Lake of Shining Waters”. Krysta’s GPS took us to a water-park.

After driving around we followed the road to the beach and some lookout points in hopes of finding it near there. We didn’t find it but the coastline was epicly beautiful. The red clay cliffs and dunes in the background were just a sight to see.

As we looked out along the coastline, I mentioned the lighthouse from the movie and we decided that it’s the one way out in the distance. We got back in the car and drove around and found Anne of Green Gables Heritage House with trails to the “haunted forest” and “Lover’s Lane”. The building was closed and major construction was going on while we were there. We did talk a walk through the haunted woods. It was surrounded by a golf course which was beautiful but not that reminiscent for the fans of Anne of Green Gables.

The path was quick but pretty, so we made it back to the vehicle quickly and off we were to the lighthouse. Krysta popped it up in her GPS. It probably took us another 30 mins to get there, well to the road that leads to the lighthouse.

We turn down the road that it says to and about 1/4 mile in we are on clay road. Meanwhile the whole trip I have been wanting to go off roading, after seeing all the trails on the sides of the roads everywhere on the way here. So we go, we begin nice and easy. Slowly turning into sliding slightly because its moist and clay, with big gaps all over the place. We continue, I am slightly nervous because my best friend is not feeling well and if we were to get stuck in this mud, I would have to take off my socks and shoes and roll up my pants and get out in my dress and push while Krysta steers us out! That was going through my head, becoming drenched in red clay from getting stuck! That would have been hilarious and very grateful that, that did not happen! hahaha.

I see what looks like a pile of dirt, as it turns out it was a pile of unmelted snow. I attempted to go over it and then we both looked at each other and we were like nope. She says we are going to have to back out of this entirely. I look back, look at her, look back and say ok, here goes. I did a very good job, if I didn’t I probably wouldn’t be sharing it! We came to the flat landing where we started to slide around. I turned the car around and we made it out safely with zero clay on my body!

And apparently it’s supposed to loop around, there are no signs warning anyone to enter at your own risk. So when we made it to paved road I look out and I see the Anne of Green Gables Museum. I was all excited. I grew up with this movie and before I came up here, I was able to watch all of them with my friend who actually had all the movies.

We cruise up the way to the museum. Honestly it looked closed, much like everything around. A beautiful dog and kitty greeted us as we got out of the car. Apparently the museum was the house of the author of Anne, L.M Montgomery.

It was $6 to go through the house. Teenie tiny house, but very neat. We enjoyed walking through. They said to look out the window at the top of the stairs and that’s where she was looking out and decided to call the water, “Lake of Shining Waters”. So technically there are 2 in PEI, but the one on the property is the OG.

So we def had an amazing adventure in search of Anne of Green Gables. And we were ready to head back as we had an appointment with a lovely woman named Nora. We did have some time before our appt. so we decided to go on a search for one of the only metaphysical shops on the island. We found it in Summerside, Celtic Mist. The owner was extremely nice and helpful. It was a very enjoyable experience and brought some goodies home.

We left there in time to still make it to our appointment on time. Glorious day of beautiful scenery and experiences.

Algonquin Resort, New Brunswick Canada

Day 2 of travels…

We eventually arrived, still daylight gratefully, at the Algonquin Hotel. It resembled the hotel in the shining. Later we find out that this hotel is haunted and and we can have a tour with the manager once he’s off his shift at 11 pm. Super excited, Krysta and I trek everything into our non haunted room and get ready to have dinner all the while listening to music and dancing. We head down for dinner, itwas good, margarita not so much and not much for desserts on the menu so we decide to go and jump in the jacuzzi. Ahhh, after a long ride, a glass of wine and spa are so in order especially if we are going to take a tour of the haunted hotel in just an hour at this point.

We were both in heaven, the room was beautiful, huge and with a kitchenette. So yes, anyone who knows me, I had a fridge to put all my rockstars in! haha. We head on down to the desk to meet Josh, the super amazing, knowledgeable manager and wait for him at the bar.

He finds his way to us and we begin our tour. It began on the fourth floor, a room 473, the crying bride. Story goes that she waited for her husband to be but never came and they were to be staying in 473 and she supposedly jumped out the window and now below the window is a flower bed.

When we arrived outside of the room we knocked on the door to let her know we were going to enter. We opened the door and turned on the lights. In this hotel if the closet door is shut the lights are off and when you open them the lights turn on. When we looked around the corner at the bathroom and the closet, the closet light was on. To me, felt like she was comfortable with us in there but wanted to stay private and she let us know with the light being on that, that is where she is. The first thing I noticed when we walked in besides the closet light being on, was a beetle on the wall. This hotel was very clean and there had been zero bugs anywhere in the building at all.

Josh explained that she has doesn’t care too much for many men, so I politely asked Josh to step outside while I take some pictures in the dark to see if I can capture anything. He kindly leaves us to our own devices and I took some pictures. At first I would click to take a picture and it wouldn’t allow us to take any for the first 3 or so. And then I was able to take a few.

After closely looking through them, we were unable to see anything in the room through my images that I took. I didn’t have any expectations but it would have been cool to have seen something. Regardless, if you feel energy, you will know someone is in there.

We moved on through the fourth floor down a hallway that was super narrow, much like in the shining. If my friend Crystal reads this, it’s like her hallway into her bedroom. skinny minnie. It was as if I was looking down into the twilight zone, waiting for two girls to come around the corner.

We meander to the basement that was built in the late 1800’s. It was said to have burned down and then rebuilt. We turned the lights off and walked with a flashlight down the old basement corridor with pipes hanging out everywhere.

Josh explained to us about a little boy that follows him around and he is sometimes found in the basement where we now stood. The lights were off and I asked permission once again to take pictures in the dark. So I did.

He continued on about all the stories he uncovered while doing research and from what other people have told him and what he has witnessed. Pretty amazing, including a bellhop in a tan suit who will take your bags to your room and leave you without trace. There is a picture near the ballroom where you can see the young boy that stays within the hotel. Really cool history here.

At the end of our midnight adventure Krysta and I were ready for bed, after a long day. We headed back to the room. I went outside before going up to the room to enjoy the crisp air. As I meandered to the doors to go back in I notice a herd of deer. Such a perfect ending of such a beautiful day!

The next day we got up and checked out all the pictures and we found some very interesting imagery from the basement. we found faces in the walls and lights unattached to anything, orbs if you will. The orbs however have to be super zoomed in to see, very interesting.

Healing

About a week ago I was working, I am a server at a restaurant with seating upstairs as well as down. It was a Friday night and in the middle of a dinner rush. I was working upstairs and had to consistently go up and down for food and other things.

I was about to make a trip downstairs with a bus bucket full of dirty plates and glasses. I began my trek down the stairs with both hands full and side stepping so that I may see the stairs. My foot got too close to the edge half way down and as if in slow motion I started to fall. I let go of the bus bucket entirely to assure my safety and fell backwards. My foot slipped off the edge so my entire right side of my body was sliding down the stairs.

It was a real loud crash with all the dishes and glasses breaking at the base of the stairs and a thud thud thud as the side of my body kept sliding on the staircase. I laid there for a few moments in shock and looked at this little girl whose eyes were wide and mouth gaping open. She was scared, I was in pure shock. We stared at each other for what felt like eternity when my coworker asked me if I was ok. I stood up, unsure if my body was ok or not and continued as if nothing was wrong. I didn’t know what else to do.

Later that evening I made it home and checked out my body. I started to feel the pain, no bruising yet but I felt it coming. The next morning I was barely able to move. I iced my entire right side, and rubbed lemongrass all over my bruises and ate pineapples to assist my body with the bruising from the inside out.

The following day I was to return to work, I decided I was not going to make it. I was still in such pain. I was able to get my shift covered and went to Flote. Where, as I have mentioned before, I go and float in 1000lbs of epsom salt for an hour. I was still in pain but I felt that it was going to reveal how helpful that was later in the day.

I went home to be greeted by my best friend and for the first time in a long time, I had reiki done to me. It was so nice to be the recipient. I continued to ice for the remainder of the day and finished off my pineapples.

The next day I was going to go back to work regardless of what I was feeling; and after all the healing modalities I worked with since it happened, paid off. I was able to work pain free, as long as no one brushed up against my right side. I made sure to stay out of the way.

Multiple things about how and why this occurred. The right side of the body is your masculine side and your right side is your feminine side. Being that my entire right side had been laid out and bruised up, led me to believe that I am not in balance. I had been working on my feminine side, as in, feeding my inner goddess but seemed to have neglected the masculine side. Bringing them in balance involves me looking into what is going on, on an emotional level and in some cases subconsciously.

In my case, I learned for myself that I was lacking strength, not physical but emotional. Dominance and personal power, being assertive. For me this reflects all relationships I’ve had with men in the past and I’m not talking just about romantic relationships but ALL. I needed to build my strength and courage and release all past relations with men where I had been put down or taken advantage of.

I shared this information with a few of my close friends and Leslie replied back. “You need to get grounded. and you need to go back, way back, childhood, past lives. release, clear and heal the past….go deep Jen, deep into the past. There is something you are avoiding. You have to see it, heal it, clear it. Then you will be able to move forward. It’s dark…body wrenching tears…”

Who wants to go back and figure that out???? I certainly did not want to do such things. Especially the fact that its body wrenching tears. I told her, I will but today is not the day. lol. I honestly took it in and let it go. I would have liked to have said yes lets do this now and figure this out but I didn’t. I needed to heal my body first.

So I left it at that. My birthday was coming up and my best friend and I were going to PEI to get away and that’s when I was going to do it. Because that trip was going to be all about relaxing and healing for the both of us.

Different perspective

I understand what I’ve done in my life and being who I am, I see many things I’ve done as not such a big deal. But when you encounter someone whom you have never met and somehow things come up in conversation… Beautiful things begin to unfold in the most peculiar places.

I was at the bank this morning and the topic of me moving to Maine from California came up. The young lady behind the counter remarked about how she wished she coukd just pick up and go somewhere. Its something shes always wanted,to do but has been to afraid to do such things.

I let her know, that its about facing your fears and walking through them. You do not want to look back at your life and say to yourself, man I wish I did that way back,when. Instead, follow your joy. That is who you are meant to be. By listening to your “gut” aka intuition, you can never go wrong. Because at least you tried!

The more often you follow your joy the more you will rcv bigger and better positive things, acts, love. All because you followed your joy. No matter how “scary” it was.

Everything turned out exactly the way it was supposed to. You are in control. Please do not live behind your fear…

I did for most of my life, I am beyond grateful that I can move and walk through my fear. No matter how uncomfortable it is, knowing that its for my greatest and highest good.
