New JoyRide Show this week: Carry On Heavenly with Alison Allan. We have a lovely talk with our fellow Metaphysical Mom from Australia about her latest baby...her new book Carry On Heavenly.
Kerry's blog: The kids are in bed and the kitchen is clean. I’ve just found my “mood music”… (I can always find my happy with Ray Charles and Otis Redding). As I settle in to work on the blog, a thought occurs to me: I love life. Seriously, I love life....all of it. I’m not talking just the pretty parts or the easy bits, but life in its entirety. Contrast in all its noise is just tiny pieces of me begging to be examined. This radical thought has been rolling around the back of my awareness, asking to be discovered and explored.
Recently it was pointed out to me that I seem to be lacking “contrast.” Admittedly, I’ve been able to create an incredible life, and I know and appreciate it. I’m married to a man (that after 17 years) I both love and respect. I have three cheeky, goofy, amazing children. We have our health and we have a roof over our heads. I have found my ever growing tribe of incredible friends that seem able to love and support with no limits. I think I’m awed by this ah-ha moment because life wasn’t always this way.
I lived in haze of fear. I couldn’t love my children or husband without feeling the feeling of impending, inevitable loss. I spent so much time worrying about the future. Somewhere along the way I bought into the notion that happiness wasn’t meant to last. That life was a 70/30 balance - 70% work, challenges, managing, etc. and 30% love, joy, happiness (if you were one of the lucky ones). I remember thinking that the “haves and have-nots” were somehow decided by fate. How many times have we heard stories involving “good” people who “fell on hard times”? Most of us are “victims” of this life. Most of us are unable to figure out the formula for success. Not a love filled, sweet life, huh? (Interesting that I had a huge fear of cancer only to end up with melanoma! I was so angry when Tiffanie pointed that out…. How far I’ve come!)
This weekend, while sitting at my bonus aunt’s 70th birthday, I looked around, taking in the room. It was full of people I am so in love with; my mom, my “bonus” dad, my incredible brother and his crazy fun and beautiful wife. My “bonus” sister, family friends and other bonus family. Everyone sitting cozy in this small restaurant party room. It was curious, I felt so detached, like I was a voyeur spying on this boisterous, loving family, watching them celebrate one of their own. I felt like I was marinating in the feeling of love and… well....belonging. This is when it hit me. This is THE moment I “GOT IT”.
I can tell you. Here it is…YOU ARE NOT A VICTIM. YOU ARE THE WRITER AND DIRECTOR OF YOUR OWN STORY!!! We (The Tribe) believe you actually began writing the script before pouring yourself into this particular skin-suit! We come here to learn all sorts of lessons. The loss of a child, a spouse, a friend, or parent. The loss of financial or emotional security. You name it. Any of it can knock a person to their knees.
But as this week’s guest Alison Allan shares with us, these experiences are purposely put into play FOR OUR BENEFIT. These are incredible opportunities for growth and self realization. For example, perhaps we learn how we helped create these things by our thoughts, actions or inactions. Maybe this was just what we needed to get us to wake up to our life’s purpose.
Alison Allan is an amazing study in JUST this subject. She loses her husband, her brother, her security, and almost herself (enough to break the strongest of souls.) But you know, Alison actually FINDS herself in all of this. Oh, I’ve failed to mention one really interesting piece of her story: she’s an incredible medium! She not only “sees” spirits, but has ongoing conversations and pop-ins. Her “Other-Worldly-Buddies” include an amazing cast of characters. You can check out some pretty cool YouTube videos
Alison and Kari have recorded on their Shiny Show. Alison brings in notable, historical figures while Kari asks them super juicy questions).
The actors (who'd passed) from the hit British Carry On film franchise spanning 1960’s-1970’s began popping in for chats on a regular basis. Alison quickly realized there was enough information here to write a book, and so she did...Carry On Heavenly! I’ll be honest, I didn’t know much about the shows, let alone the cast of characters. I downloaded the book to see what Alison was up to… I was THRILLED! I LOVED it! The information is incredible. Really. You should see my library… I’ve read a ton of stuff out there. I feel pretty confident when I tell you this book is one of the funniest, most easily accessible metaphysical books I’ve read!
You can order a Kindle version of A Heavenly Ca
rry On here
, or a paper copy of Carry On Heavenly here
(it's the same book, don't worry!). If you're familiar with the cast, you will be in heaven! (Ha!) Alison laughingly warns you that this book is interactive and has had reports of cast members popping in on “sensitive” readers. Personally, I had a brief chat with the lovely Joan Sims.
We’ve already discussed having her back for part two of the Alison Allan Show. There just wasn’t enough time to get all the stories, back stories, etc into one show.
And Kari and Alison are cooking up a Shiny Show gathering in Vegas in May 2017 for an amazing weekend of workshops, ghost tours and spiritual shenanigans! Stay tuned for the 411 on how you can get in on the action!
