Just being me and hoping to inspire you, from my light to yours…

My garden has weeds. And my garden is beautiful.

This is the phrase that comes to me as I sit in my sunroom appreciating the beauty despite the obviously overtaking weeds.

I think deeper about myself.

There are certain physical attributes I posses and could liken to weeds– cellulite, acne, pot-belly, dry rough heels, wrinkles, scars, spider veins, yellowed teeth.

Then I smile to myself and notice the parallel here…

My garden has weeds.

And my garden is beautiful.

Coming Out

There’s a coming out process to being an intuitive and a healer. I didn’t just become who I am over night and I didn’t just go broadcasting these peculiarities about myself to the world. It has been a slow and steady walk with myself. Trying out something new and then shrinking back into myself and asking, “Is this real!?” or telling myself, “I won’t be able do that!” But eventually as I kept practicing to build my intuition and healing skills I began to trust. I learned to trust in those random whisperings that pop out from the world around me and to trust in the greater space held within me that really is connected to all. No, I don’t understand everything quite yet, but I have a good heart and a good base to lead by and I continue to trust in spirit both within myself and around me. You can’t open new doors if you don’t move forward. And I am ready to move forward. Even if the world around me is not ready to accept me, I accept myself.

So here it is my most recent step to coming out is purchasing car magnets. Yes, I will actually be driving around my neighborhood, to my children’s school, in our community, and all the surrounding areas I go to with this plastered on the side of my car for all the world to see. Will I be nervous to do this? Yes! I am fully aware people will think what they will but I will still be me despite it. I am at a point in my development where I can acknowledge to myself that what I have to offer is worthy and that I can help others. This is just another step in that same direction.

You see it here in the box and not on my car yet because it is still summer and I am relishing these day’s with my children. I look forward to putting it up closer to when school starts and will definitely share when that happens.

I hope that you are enjoying your beautiful summer too :-).

Do you see me?

Sometimes what a child’s soul says to their parent:

“I see you, do you see me?”

Take time to be still and to watch your children free from judgment, criticism, or the need to correct.

Take time to see them for who they are.

Perfect and imperfect. Beautiful and learning, just like you.

Being a parent is a challenge for a reason. Children are a blessing and come with much to teach us. They come with just the right combination of knowing how to melt our hearts and also what buttons to push so that we may grow into better human beings. They provide us with plenty of opportunities to practice love, kindness, patience, and compassion. And in return they give us their open mind and open heart to make our impression on. It can be tough being a parent, but remember it can be tough being a kid sometimes too.

In your journey as a parent keep in mind that at any time you can ask God to help you in your parenting. Sometimes this is the strength we need to know we are not alone.

God please help me to be a good parent and to honor who my children are as they grow wholly into themselves.

Thank you God for my beloved children.

Amen.

Dare You song

Good song. Good lyrics. Just sharing. :-)

Dare You

by Hardwell

We’re a million lonely people
All together on this needle in the sky
Afraid of heights
And your dreams were made illegal
By the laws of lesser evil we call life
But not tonight

I dare you to love
I dare you to cry
I dare you to run
I dare you to try
I dare you to fall
And lay on the ground
I dare you to feel
I dare you to be here now

You’re an outline of a vision
That you had when we were children yesterday
You watch it fade
Let your heart be your religion
Let it break you out of this prison you became
It’s not too late

I dare you to love
I dare you to cry
I dare you to run
I dare you to try
I dare you to fall
And lay on the ground
I dare you to feel
I dare you to be here now

I dare you
I dare you

Cemetery kiss blowing

My kids and I just returned from an AWESOME 10 day vacation! We traveled from Wisconsin across Lake Michigan on the Lake Express Ferry and drove inland to Morrice, Michigan where I am from. We got to enjoy family and friends and make new memories. It was priceless!

We also got to go and visit Nama, my Mom, at the cemetery where she is buried. We brought a gift for her, a hummingbird wind chime to hang on the hook behind her gravestone. It was a special way for us to include her on this trip and to make a memory of her for my children. Little did I know she would show up.

After my son hung the wind chime and we spent some time at her gravesite we piled into the car and drove through the cemetery towards the exit. As we approached the exit I prompted my kids to say goodbye by saying, “Goodbye Nama, we love you.” They repeated it without missing a beat, “Goodbye Nama, we love you.” But then in that very moment something unexpected happened. My Mom spontaneously appeared to me through my mind’s eye and I could hear her say “I love you too.” Then she also blew a kiss to my children and without missing a beat Gavin turned around, aimed back at her gravesite, and blew her a kiss too. Unbeknownst to himself he returned the favor to her and also melted my heart.

It goes to show that the connection with lost loved one’s, even those we’ve never met, have a special place in our life. Even if the connections are never revealed to us they still take place and a special communication is shared. <3

A quote…

8-21-09 030 revised416

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
~Anais Nin

I can feel it. My soul wanting to jump out and go in every different direction and simultaneously just sitting there centered in my being. As I open myself to the flow I see myself again, my soul purpose like the body of a spider. Different arms reaching out to the world experiencing different gifts. A mother, a writer, a link to peace. A healer, a seer, and a light of love to others. But at the body of all of that threading and spinning of life is me, just simply me. That’s where my deepest purpose lies.

With good heart and good deed it seems that’s where anyone’s purpose lies, because the truest purpose anyone came here to fulfill… is life. My multifaceted purpose is clear at different times and in different ways as my life unfolds, but the central purpose is always the same. I know that I am at home anywhere, when I am at home within myself. From that divine inner space three things are decided: I am to know me, to be me, and to share me. It doesn’t have to get any more complicated than that. In being myself in the truest sense possible I will teach others to be expressions of their soul as well. Oh the webs we will weave together, if I could only see them now in their highest potential. A true sight of the intricate masterpiece that is life, glistening in the light of God’s divine hand.
