Happy Belated Birthday!!

To Me, Happy belated birthday to me :)




It was a long, hard, painful summer. Nothing that I wanted; nothing I could avoid. It was a summer of lessons to learn. And I did. Throughout my hijacked days, I reconsidered life and my place in it. What was I doing right? Where was I failing? How could I be healthier and happier?
Interestingly enough, they were the same questions that had started my Year to Remember! I just didn't expect the answers to come the hard way. Oh well. 

It is what it is. 

  • I didn't get through my 100 adventures. 
  • I did get behind in my daily life, in my professional life and in my fun. 
  • I encountered massive setbacks due to unforeseen health complications from a prior injuries. 
  • I had to restart and revision.

Because I didn't give up...

I found:  


  • MY PURPOSE.
  • a new career.
  • a more concrete set of guiding values.
  • renewed, empowered relationships.
  • a personalized version of truth.


After these key adventures,

  • scheduling a reading with a clairvoyant
  • taking metaphysical classes to learn how to "see" better
  • using my insight to give police detectives some insight into open cases

I have reconnected and, more importantly, EMBRACED my spiritual gifts. 


I have decided to follow in the footsteps of those early Christian mystics. Through my gift of discernment and my highly attuned, intuitive insight, I will be trying to help as many people as I can deepen their own Divine gifts and use them to honor God. 

As such, I am going pro!  I will be doing healing clairvoyant and intuitive readings, teaching others how to consider how the Divine acts in their lives, and encourage others to consider the methods of the Christian mystics (and others) to deepen your faith and deepen your connection with others. 

Stay tuned for more. I'm slowly catching up with my adventure postings and moving ahead in setting up my business. 

Thank you for coming along on my journey. I hope it will continue in an even greater way.

Blessings to you and yours,
Donna, aka GodGirlGoth

Out of the Psychic Medium Closet






The current 24-hour period has been very special. By far, of all the great things that happened today, my favorite is the psychic/medium reading I got to do last night.

A dearly departed best friend of my classmate came through very clearly, with many details that were confirmed later with pictures, and with huge messages of love. I LOVE LOVE LOVE what I do. <3 p="">
As soon as I get the business set up, I'll give YOU the chance to get a free reading from me.

Thank you, God, for letting me see and experience this spiritual part of other people's lives.

Forced R&R While Deadline Looms!



What's happened:  As I was completing adventures, I started having some unusual physical symptoms. After some testing, I've been told it's all related to my old, old neck injury. Luckily, I caught it in time so I can do something about it.

How it affects you:  My time at the computer is limited. My posts will be less frequent.

How it affects my Year of 100 Adventures:  I may not finish my list of 100 by my deadline near the end of September. I will tally them and keep writing them up as health permits

What you can do for me and your fellow readers:  

  1. Share some good pins with me at http://www.pinterest.com/donalynr/
  2. Give me your best summer book recommendation in the comments. 
  3. Tell me what you like most about summer.
  4. Tell me what you're looking forward to this fall.
  5. Email me with a pic and a little about yourself to be profiled here. (see below)


Thanks & happy summer! Stay healthy.

***I'm looking for a few good GGGs.***
While I'm on hiatus, would anyone like to be profiled? I'm looking for why YOU are a GGG? Email me at donna@starryskiesmedia.com and we'll figure out your best presentation.

Y2R Adventure 23: Nail Art


Nails I'd like (Pic by Bellashoot.com)
Many, many more at http://www.pinterest.com/donalynr/nail-art/

Nails I create



What I did:  Create Nail Art, aka a fancy manicure


When I did it: On and off over the past few months

Notes:  I'm not very good at the fine details. I haven't figured the best ways to clean the tiny brushes since I've been using nail remover pads instead of a bottle of liquid.

The Takeaway/What I learned:  Watch more videos on youtube until I can produce nicer results

Do Again?:  Yes, I'll try it again since I haven't achieved that beautiful, clean line yet. But I think stickers might be the way to go for me.

Rant:  It's like watching paint dry...literally. And you have to have dry nails before you add the other colors. 

Rave:  The pictures on pinterest, like Bellashoot's, are so cool. I'll get there some day with more patience and practice. 

Words of Wisdom:  Get the right tools, watch tutorials and have loads of time and patience to achieve professional results.

Y2R Adventure 22: Allergy Testing




What I did:  Got allergy tested after decades of chronic allergy and sinus problems.


When I did it: April 2014

Notes:  I found out that I wasn't allergic to the things I thought I was allergic to. Those things are "irritants," not true, histamine-producing allergies.

The Takeaway/What I learned: Don't shy away from things you're scared to do. Get it over with and deal with reality. 

Do Again?:   If they don't find my food blood tests, yes.

Rant:
1)  The office personnel of this doctor was atrocious. Mistake after mistake. Too bad. He was a great ENT, as were everyone who treated/tested me for related things.
2)  They lost my food allergy test results, if they ever did them.
3)  I'm allergic to cotton?!
      ***They kept my blood long enough to reorder the food testing. Turns out I'm allergic to oats and hazelnuts, too.**

Rave:  I'm not allergic to my dog :)

Words of Wisdom:  "Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only to be understood."  Marie Curie
