Happy St Patrick's Day!

May you always have...
Walls for the winds
A roof for the rain
Tea beside the fire
Laughter to cheer you
Those you love near you
And all your heart might desire.

Author J. Day is here!


Hi fabulous knitters!  Today, I'm posting an interview with author, J. Day for you to enjoy.  It was originally posted ton on my Six Sensory Being blog but I wanted to share the J.D. goodness with you here on knit1fortheroad. Fire up your needles, raise them high and give a few roaring clicks for J. Day!

Today, I’m thrilled to bring you an interview with J. Day, author of Spirit Guide Messages According To Your Sign 2015.

Let’s begin!

Q. Welcome to Six Sensory Being, J.D.! When I first saw your book, Spirit Guide Messages According to Your Sign 2015, I was thrilled with your fresh approach to messages from spirit. Would you share with us how you were inspired to begin writing?

A. First I wish to say how honored I am that you enjoyed my book so much and thank you for inviting me to do this interview.  I have been doing readings for years, but for the first few years there was a lack of flow and connection. It was not until I began to “hear” my Guides that the pieces fell together. I had heard them my whole life and never knew. I had a blog and started doing weekly messages for my readers there, but scheduling made the entries less and less consistent. I wanted to continue to give the messages and a book was the best way to do this. The book is meant to help you to interact with your guides and begin to get messages on your own, in addition to what the book provides.

Q. In your book, you mention working daily with your Guides.  How would you suggest the readers begin their own very personal journey of trusting and accepting guidance from their guides?

A.  You used a key word “trust” This takes time and practice to build or rebuild trust in the information we receive. Often time our Guide’s messages will feel like our own thoughts, like a whisper, or subconscious nudge. I started by writing. I would ask a question that I had no way of knowing the answer, such as; What is an energy block from a past life that continues to hold me back? I then wrote the words as they floated into my head. The first few times may not work. Do not get frustrated and do not give up. I suggest a 5-10 minute meditation to center yourself and help open your chakras before you try the writing exercise.

Meditation is key, as well. I meditate between 3-6 times a week. It does not have to be for long. Start with 5 minutes and work your way up to 60. After a while you will know what messages you are being given from your guide and what thoughts are  coming from you.

Q.  Please tell us about your center, The Indigo Papillon. 

A. The Indigo Papillon is a metaphysical center in Fanwood New Jersey. It was named after a vision my grandmother had of a center I would eventually create. Papillon is French for butterfly, which symbolizes transformation, freedom, and journeys. Indigo represents the third eye, our chakra center for clairvoyance. At the center we offer meditations, classes, development circles, discussion groups, readings, energy healing, and Mediumship galleries. I am about hands on experience and getting you to work with your intuition right away!

Q. The Indigo Papillon sounds like an exciting place to experience growth and transformation. Many of us struggle to keep up with the demands of our busy lives. How do you balance your daily work life and manage to keep your vibrational energy high?

A.  I am crazy busy, so I know this struggle well. When I get a random day off, I actually take the time to enjoy it. I will rest, sleep, and indulge in all of the things that we normally skip out on. I spend time with people I care about, friends, family, significant others, and pets. They help me to laugh and connect in a way that is not energetically draining. I take time for myself; this means saying no to things that are not serving my highest good. I also have my chakras closed when I am not working. If I was “on” all of the time, I would simply be exhausted! Again meditation, I cannot stress enough the importance of meditation. You could meditate with exercise, cooking, creating, sitting and breathing, anything that allows you to focus on yourself and the “now.”

Q.  That is wonderful advice for us all keep in mind daily, J.D. Thank you.  We’d all like to know what is next for you, J.D.? Do you have anything else you would like to share with the readers, today?

A.   I have a new weekly podcast that will cover all questions and topics in the metaphysical realm. The first one is up and I am recording the next one tomorrow. I encourage readers to post questions and comments that I will address in future podcasts. Next month I will be giving a speech up at Fairleigh Dickenson University; this is my fourth year up there and honored to be asked back! I am working on my first novel. This novel incorporates a strong metaphysical theme. It should be ready to go by the end of next year.

Thank you again and Many Blessings,
