When I recounted my first story of a Feng Shui consultation for a lovely client in Northport, Long Island, New York, little did I realize it was to become a series. Scared Away with Feng Shui? How I "lost" my client in Northport, Long Island New York If you didn't read it, it's about a client I consulted with and the things that came up during and after the consultation. She had heard some unusual words like "Auspicious" and did not know the history of her home, something I always ask. After I left her pet had escaped and a neighbor she had never met found it and insisted on returning it to her. She not only brought her beloved pet back, she brought back a book that had taken her over SEVEN Years to write and had just arrived that morning. She said later she felt compelled to bring it with her. This neighbor, by the way, knew the entire history of the house.
My client started to have changes happen almost immediately (which are recounted in the first post) and I believed, when the communication stopped that she had become a bit afraid of everything that was happening. The very next morning after posting that blog I had an email from the woman, Carolyn Freund-Nelson who had written "The Auspicious Goat" which was my clients neighbor. Since I don't believe in accidents or coincidences, I had plans to email my client later that night....before I had a chance to I was signing onto a new website. It came up with my screen name---and my clients! She was signing on at the exact same time! We spoke that evening and she wasn't at all afraid, just very caught up in a busy life. We vowed to meet Carolyn very soon. Feng Shui Synchronicity at Work---Back to Northport, Long Island
Just before I was leaving for my vacation, my phone rang. Standing outside was the lovely Carolyn who had brought me her book. I couldn't believe the kindness and light this woman showed. As soon as I got back, I thought, I would make it to her house; she not only had an "Auspicious Goat," she had some pretty Auspicious Pumpkins! Carolyn was going for the record sized Pumpkin ever grown on Long Island and, quite possibly, the largest Pumpkin ever grown anywhere.

Returning from my trip and finding issues with the house and trying to get back to a schedule, I did not yet have a chance to get to Carolyn's house. An email arrived from my client, however, telling me SHE was going away but would I care to meet when she got back? Perhaps she would host a lunch with Carolyn or we would take her out. That was only about a week ago and long enough had passed, I thought; I told her absolutely.
For now, it is not possible. A few days ago I received an email and some pictures from Carolyn's husband, Nel's. He shared with me the story (and is allowing me to share it with you) of Carolyn's health issues. She had been having difficulty breathing on and off and they were treating her with inhalers. Finally it had gotten so bad they ordered tests. Carolyn was found to have a very large tumor in her esophagus. Before trying to remove it, they needed to try and shrink it and put her through many radiation treatments. Surgery is pending and they can make no promises. I missed a Golden Opportunity to meet someone very special; somehow my house or work did not seem very important. It's a terrible regret and a lesson I won't soon forget. I love my work but I love people more. My house issues will get resolved sooner or later.
I am sharing the pictures with you of this amazing, indomitable spirit named Carolyn who in spite of her illness, was not about to miss the weighing in of her precious pumpkin! She is an Inspiration to me and I would venture to bet everyone's path she's come across. There is also a website my Energy Healer had sent me; while submitting prayers for yourself or a loved one, please remember Carolyn in them.

Speaking of Halloween Decorations....

*I would be remiss if I did not thank Carolyn's husband, Nel's, for sharing with me and more then that, for trusting me to write about them; Their spirit, courage, love, dedication and perseverence....words we all should live by.
