When we seek help from our hearts and the heavens, wouldn't it be just peachy if the answers would arrive super fast?
Sometimes they do. Sometimes they don’t. We know, though, answers arrive right on time. They always do — not a second too early; not a second too late.
It’s hard to be patient with this universal delivery system; especially, when we get anxious or fearful or when we really just want to solve a practical problem. Answers can be elusive and sneak around, weaving in and around the corners of our mind for quite some time.
I believe it has to do with committed survival on a new level. Are we really ready to go to the next level? All parts of us — body, mind and spirit have to agree to the “yes.” We need to be willing to show up and face the unknown. Good times, right?
Even if we’re a bit sheepish; a willingness to rise IS required to rise. That's spiritual physics.
You all know I am crazy in love...
Joy and rounds of applause for the wonders of you!
Ode To Red Pants Girl
Two sisters climb the hill. Ice skate blades scape and clang as the girls, ages six and eight, weave through frosted pine bows. The soggy, muddy-bottomed six-year-old knew going home was flat out wrong and finally shouted, “No! I wanna skate!”
With determination, little sis spun around, stomped through their 5” deep snow prints, plopped down at the pond’s frozen edge, put her skates on and flew onto the ice to spin and grin and glide into arabesques.
Watching her little sister’s icy red pants perform an about face and march back toward the ice gobsmacked her big sister. The determined optimism of her little sister to go for it alone and to be alone on the ice when the afternoon’s light was fading, cemented a new perspective regarding her baby sister.
From that day forward, little sis was known as "Red Pants Girl."
I love Fall. Probably because I’m October born. I remember walking with my dad to and from the park, scooting through the scarlet and gold maple leaves. I can still smell their crisp scent.
The hill going down was a blast. “Whee!” Was one of my dad’s favorite words.
Going up the hill… not so much. Yet, his voice and mountain climbing lessons stayed with me, “Take tiny steps.”
At the foot of the hill our feet were grounded and solid. Tight shouldered we’d stand together and wiggle with readiness. He’d say, “Let’s go for it!”
He always set up an arduous task by first finding joy.
Our feet would scoot like diminutive Geishas, winding zig-zag up the road, pretending we’re traveling up a hairpin mountain road.
He’d remind me to pace myself; "Small steps make all the difference."
When you have a quiet moment, think about what you’ve learned from the very beginning of your life and how that has...
Last week I wrote about pushing yourself awake and how important it is to relax as you follow your spiritual path.
Awakenings happen when they happen. Usually when you least expect it.
It happened to a friend and me a few weeks ago when I took a him to a doctor. As we walked into the office a song was piping through their audio system, “I breathe in grace… I exhale grace” was the song’s refrain.
We sat down. A wave came over me and I just wanted to cry. In fact, I did. Trying ever-so-cooly to wipe away my tears, as if I had allergies. Ha!
Over and over the song played and it simply popped my heart. You know the feeling when a lyric surpasses your brain and surprisingly sings to your soul.
I knew I was being queued up by the heavens; yet, I didn’t know why. I simply was.
During my friend’s exam, the doctor looked at me only once. And once was enough. He looked at my friend’s health record and noted he had a stroke a few years ago.
NOTE: This is a two-part piece. Next week I’ll share a personal, very unexpected, encounter Irecently had. One, I believe, you can relate to. For now, enjoy this week’s preamble.
What I’ve seen lately is exhausted people. Perhaps you are too. Your mind spins and you can’t sleep. You push yourself to stay awake to complete a task. You try to push time, squeezing a few more moments out of your day.
Be mindful, you’re not sacrificing your life or health for the illusionary paradox of controlled freedom.
The same paradox knocks on your door as you step on a path to awaken spiritually. But, you don’t have control over how or when or where you awaken. It’s not a thing to pursue. You’ll not see the big picture until you do. Although, you will be graced with vivid sections of its mosaic from time to time.
You don’t have control over your spiritual awakening. Not the way you’d like...
I don’t know what I would do without my meditation practice. I’m sure I’d be much more of a wild child.
Our meditation practice allows us to open ourselves to our emotions and thoughts. No matter their softness or velocity of pain. Memories arise. Anger and confusion can startle us awake. Joy can settle a quivering heart with its internal dance.
Life is a powerful series of sublime and startling changes. We are always rounding corners in our lives. We do so in silent ways or we power up and move toward an intended goal.
Sometimes, when life is hard, you just want the excruciating arc of the corner to end. We want to round the corner now!
We shout, “Make it stop! Make it better!” I, too, have had my “make it better moments.”
Several months ago, my body was going in the opposite direction I wanted it to go. I was literally trying to make it move around the corner of my bed whimpering, “Come on sweet body, you just need to get around the...
In early March I had just finished a fantastic series of teachings — Becoming a Medical Intuitive and working with a select group of healers conducting long-distance healing sessions for people who needed help.
It was a great run from early December through early March. Fabulous students and healers. Mega growth for everyone.
I had also been reading my energy field, which I always do. There were some interesting changes a foot. A move. Lots of boxes. More intriguing, was a significant span of void prior to the presentation and sequence of these two primary objects. I know there is never a true void, so I watched as all would be revealed.
The upcoming move and the boxes looked like they were banking around an airport, ready to line up with the runway to land. Yet, it wasn’t time for them to round the corner. (Remember this sentence. I’ll write more about it next time.)
After closing out the teaching sessions, I took stock as to what’s...
As we move into Springtime, as it will be here soon, I thought I'd share this visualization with which you can explore and give the energy of your heart a little check up and pick-me-up.
Enjoy this visualization. It was a spontaneous channeling during a recent class gathering for the Becoming a Medical Intuitive Course. It's so important to go deep inside, especially since this past year has been crestfallen for many.
Let the light shine within your heart like a benediction. A sutra. An energetic chant of connected universal awareness, grace and healing. Reconnect with your gifts. Feel the movement or congestion of your heart's energy and set free what needs to move along or generate more strength and resolve.
You are a boundless soul of light and the body you have is meant to connect to the heavens, yourself, others, and earth. We do this in many ways. None more significant than the heart.
Life is good. Life is nut-so. Life is an...
Trust offers us strength, resilience, and sure-footedness. I'm certain you've noticed trust has been shaken ... not stirred. Shaken.
The good news in all of this kerfuffle is we are given an opportunity to rise and find joy in small things again. To be given opportunities to go deep within and identify more clearly what is truly important to you and yours.
Another aspect I've noticed within the people is a new sense of self. These levels of awakening cannot be stopped. Don't try. Roll with whats new and waking up inside of you.
It's too on point and too difficult for you to ignore. You don't want to to discard these changes anyway. They are for you! For the practicality of life, as well as your transcendent self. You are changing.
To regain trust in your world and to hear the new calling within, you have to lean into yourself a bit more. Garner the gift of discernment and go from there.
Most importantly, rediscover and listen to the spark ofLight in you. For you never...
