The Grapes of Wrath

“Nothing ever seems to go the way I’d planned,” a psychic consultation client in Florida complained to me over the phone a few weeks ago. As I continued listening, she fired one salvo after another as to why her life was a battlefield. Then, spirit took over with guidance!

Through my intuitive insights, I was led to share with her not only words of comfort, but some possible solutions to turn the whining, which, alone, can be a hindrance, into positives. While nothing is completely transformed overnight, a change in direction is possible. We discussed some baby steps to build momentum. She liked the plan and even admitted she’d thought about doing some of the actions that I’d brought up!

Next, something funny happened. “When’s the last time you laughed; I mean, really laughed?” I asked.

“With everything that’s going on around me, I don’t have time for that,” she replied.

“Maybe, you should make time,” I countered. I’d barely finished the sentence when I was intuitively shown images of the classic I Love Lucy episode, where the ditzy redhead dares to become an Italian vintner by stomping grapes with her bare feet. Naturally, lunacy and hysterics ensue. When I brought up this comedic gem to the client, she started giggling.

“Oh, my! That was my sister and mine’s favorite TV show, the wine making episode in particular,” she offered. “We cracked up every time Lucy danced in that grape vat.” Before we hung up, she vowed, “Tonight, I’m going to make some popcorn, open a bottle of Chardonnay and have an I Love Lucy marathon!”

The lesson here: why whine when you can wine?!

Love and light,

    Hi Tony,
    How could anyone not smile and laugh at Lucy stomping grapes in the big wine vat? That was also one of my favorite episodes of “I Love Lucy.”
    I hope you are well, happy and have inner peace.

    Laughter, Lucy and an excellent chard… makes me smile just thinking about it. Lucy’s inspire ability to encourage and inspire women (and men) is among the greatest of understated mysteries!

      Exactly! Who doesn’t love Lucy and her ability to always pull our funny bones? And, laughter can be pretty powerful in anyone’s healing process too.
