Hi, my name is Cherise and my boyfriend’s name is Pascal. We have been going through a lot for seven months. We were unemployed and had to sleep in our car after our landlords decided to sell our place. We’ve been trying very hard to get back on our feet. Now we have jobs, but we are still living in our car. We are planning on moving to Vegas next month because it's so expensive here in California. I would like to know if we will find jobs in Vegas and not become homeless again for the third time.
Dear Cherise, I want to first acknowledge that I’m writing from a place of privilege and I understand there are many factors leading to your struggle that are a result of oppressive structures within our society. I feel that my response should include messages from the angels as to how to end homelessness on a global level, but I don’t have the space to do so.
I see that you are a loving person and you work very hard in creating a stable life for yourself. I’m getting messages that blessings are coming your way, but you must believe in yourself in order for your dreams to come true. This is where the true challenge lies. You are feeling a deep sense of shame regarding your situation, yet overcoming the shame is the key to finding happiness and success.
I’m seeing a loving, grandmotherly figure coming through. Did you have a grandmother who passed? You must believe you are loved and cherished even if you are getting the opposite message from the people who surround you. I’m also seeing an image of you with a small baby girl. Perhaps this will be one of your future blessings when the timing is right.
You will find housing in Las Vegas as long as you believe in the possibility that good will come your way. It may start in a motel, but that will be temporary until you find a more permanent home. Pascal either has a job lined up or will get one soon. I see you caring for adults in my mind’s eye. Have you thought of working as a care provider or a nurse?
There are two ways to work towards fulfilling your dreams. One of course is practical. You must put effort into looking for work and places to live. Just remember that you did not create a world in which homelessness exists, so you shouldn’t have to navigate your way out by yourself. Here’s a website to find resources on homelessness prevention in Las Vegas: http://www.needhelppayingbills.com/html/nevada_eviction_and_homeless_p.html
The other method involves spiritual practices that will lift your vibration. The angels are asking you to write a love letter to yourself. Congratulate yourself for all the wonderful ways in which you make the world a brighter place. This includes anything from smiling at a stranger to caring for an elder. Write that you are truly deserving of having your own home and creating a loving family.
If Pascal is open to it, visualize the place you would like to live in and write down the characteristics together. Imagine that this place is already yours and notice the feelings of peace and contentment you have. Say thank you (whatever higher power you believe in) for providing us with the perfect home as often as possible. Place sticky notes all over your car with positive affirmations such as “I am smart”, “I am being cared for”, “I am loved”, “I am enough”, and anything else you can think of that will help increase your ability to love yourself deeply. Visualize walking through your new home and make it as detailed a vision as possible. How is it decorated? Imagine washing the dishes, doing laundry, eating breakfast at your kitchen table. Imagine what you’ll be eating for dinner the night you move in.
Cherise’s response: I know people go through ups and downs in life and I’m trying to get back on track. I'm trying to stay patient and I’m trying to keep my mind focused on other things that are positive. I’ve been singing in my head to distract myself. I don't believe in myself at times because I have dyslexia and I’m afraid to do things that involve reading or spelling. I really want to work on it so that I will not be afraid to pursue what I want in life. I'm ready to do that now. I'm ashamed of the dyslexia.
Yes, my grandmother passed away seven years ago. I miss her so much. I want to get back to my spiritual meditations, but I’ve been working all the time to make as much money as I can. I hope to have a baby girl so that would be amazing. I have thought about caregiving and I may look into that when I move to Vegas.
Sarah’s Response: You are very smart, and being dyslexic has nothing to do with your level of intelligence. You can go to www.beatingdyslexia.com to learn more about available resources and support. There are millions of successful adults who are dyslexic, so you are not alone!
In regards to your occupation, if I saw you as a caregiver and you were thinking of going into that line of work, that means the angles are providing validation that this would be a great path. So many doors will open after you face your fears regarding dyslexia. Thank you for sharing your story. You are an inspiration!
