Waking Phrase

We have two hands.

One to hold the hand of God.

One to help the other people.

As I woke up this morning this is the stream of words that ran through my head. The same thing happened the other day as I was waking back into this world of awareness I got a nice little phrase that came with me. In fact, it ended up being the dedication in my new book: Thank you to the Mother Earth and her divine giving purpose.

I think I will need to put a pen and paper next to my bed if this is to become a regular occurrence ūüėČ

If you have not gotten my short story e-book yet today is the last day it will be available for free.

If you too are curious about in-between spaces of awareness then you will enjoy the read.

Trust and Follow

This morning I dreamt of a Bald Eagle. A symbol of spirit and of freedom. It was at eye level with me flying through the air. Its majestic head was so close as it looked back at me and said, “Follow me.”

There are so many changes going on right now in my life. I have just acquired a new place to work from as an Energy Healing Practitioner. I have been working on a Do It Yourself Energy Medicine class that I am teaching in a of couple weeks and am hoping to also turn it into an online e-course. And I am writing a short story that I will submit as a Kindle Single, with the hopes of it becoming a series. My working title is: Mystic Moments of Your Average Mom.

True to my form, I cannot just have one thing going at a time. This is why I am grateful for Eagle to have shown himself in my dreamscape. Even though yes, I have a lot on my plate, yes I am juggling several things amongst fitting in home life. And, yes it can seem overwhelming; if I let my mind go there. But Eagle is a beautiful messenger that tells me all is indeed in proper positioning and that no matter what challenges, time crunches, or hours needed to be put in I am indeed taking the right steps in securing my future. All I need to do is keep trusting that what I am doing is what is supposed to be done. Just trust and follow spirit.

I love the simplicity that it brings and the feeling that none of this has to be hard. Just trust and follow. I will know the steps to take when it is time to take them.

The Grasshopper says Jump

grasshopper

I have been seeing SO many grasshoppers for like the past three weeks! Seriously just sitting outside on my patio I saw upwards of 10. So hello grasshopper I know you are trying to tell me something. ūüėČ

While outside in the glorious September sun¬†I quieted my mind, connected to my team of spiritual guidance and asked, “What are the grasshoppers telling me?”

“You’re ready to jump. Jump to your state of being, being higher.” They went on to further lend their always welcome insight and told me, “It’s not about what you have to give up to be a higher stated being. It’s about focusing yourself within these things that already make you exceptional. Finding your flow there and opening the valve to express more of that. Like attracts like, so be like the like.”

I thought about this and thought about how sometimes, or maybe a lot of the time with certain things,¬†I do get stuck focusing on what I need to eliminate in order to be better. A certain food,¬†a certain issue with myself or another person, a certain feeling or emotion. But today I get that currently that’s the wrong perspective and that¬†I can be more of what I want, and actually more of what I already am, by focusing on what is already exceptional¬†and focusing less on eliminating what is not. Yes, of course I have heard this before, as I’m sure so have you, but today as another layer of development peels off, I guess I just get it with deeper understanding.

The grasshopper¬†telling me to jump is not asking me to make any drastic changes. It means jump to a different way of being that is more in alignment with what I want in my life and who I am. And as I watched that quick little creature jump from one part of the patio to another I understood that it’s not that I’m on different ground. It’s just that I need to be able to¬†see from a different perspective on the same ground. So thank you wise grasshopper. I think I will try. ūüôā

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. ‚̧

My words 3 years ago and yet I think I am still in the same place, a good place to be…

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.

Energy-scope for June

Well I’m not an astrologer, I can’t write horoscopes. But, I do read energy so can I write an energy-scope? I’m brave enough to try something new and forgiving enough to fail so here goes…

There’s some turbulence. New wind is blowing in. Wind is what picks things up and carries them away. It’s good to be mindful of not getting too carried away this month. Stay grounded as the winds pick-up around you and you may find new strength in not being swayed. Also, watch for falling debris; that which has tripped you up has the potential to do so again. Only you have the power to change your own outcome and breathe in fresh air instead of the stale old mist of repetitive emotion.

Inner Key to get through the month smoother: Find time to breathe.  Focus on the control of your own breath as a daily energy exercise and fill your belly full of this replenishing life force energy. Consciously taking in more of your own breath will actually help you to stay grounded.

Power in Perspective

I invite you to read this powerful article that speaks to the unrealized potential of the perspectives we hold and how we really do create our own reality.

Here are a few of my favorite quotes:

“You are the classifier of your own life. If you label an experience (whether one you watched on television or one you lived through) as bad, then it will have undesired effects on you. If you classify it as good, it will have pleasant effects on you.”

“The real effect of things on your physical body is the belief you have about them.”

Animals and Dreams

I often get images of animals as spiritual communication. There’s a whole language that the animal world carries that can come through in the sighting of any particular animal. Take the bald eagle for example, it is often marked as a sign of spirit being with you and divinity at work.

A few weeks ago I had a dream about fuzzy black spiders with white markings across their legs and on their bodies. Again last night one came to me in my dream showing itself so vividly that I could not help but wonder what message it had for me. Sometimes I find if I watch the animal it will express its message to me. I think I will call in the fuzzy white and black spider now and ask it what it wishes to share.

As I do this I feel an overlay of the spider, its arms moving like fingers. This feels like an expression that I have been busy at work. Then my eyes are drawn to the unique markings upon its body. It feels like all of the work I have been doing has been feeding the body and more deeply, feeding the body of my divinity as the markings are white an expression of the presence of divinity. So, through my work I have been feeding the divinity within me. I would agree with this statement.

After processing the information just as you have read it I¬†bring my attention back to this fascinating being speaking to me through vision and un-auditory sound. I next see the¬†fuzzy spider¬†with two¬†knitting needles and a project in progress. White yarn, or perhaps its web, is hanging down from the metal knitting needles. To me in this moment the needles symbolize or stand out as being man-made and the thread-like webbing as more natural material. This tells me that in my work I am using man-made tools to create something of natural essence. I am weaving, as spiders do, a great sign of creation. But what is the spider speaking of that I am creating? I ask…

“A tapestry of life.” is the reply. I am in the man-made world but what I create has essence of spirit… of my spirit. I am weaving through my spirit and into the world and what is being created is of real and lasting substance. I have a huge smile on my face with this beautiful feeling. I know I will keep on creating and weaving my spirit into being whether through service or prayer, writing or drawing, reading or experiencing. The creation of my life is endless and contains many facets that in turn create the whole being of who I am. And I am still being created… by me.

I will have to process this message further. It feels like it contains more than what my conscious mind can understand in this moment at 9:47 a.m. on a Tuesday with my daughter waiting patiently for me upstairs being entertained by cartoons.

In the meantime here is a link you might like to browse if you have had an animal that too has been coming to you.

——————–

Chakras are spiritual centers of your body and are likened as spinning wheels of light. This is where the energy of your soul filters into the energy of your physical self. It is ideal for your chakras to be open and balanced although sometimes these centers can shut-down which in turn can shut-down aspects of yourself. Maybe you are having issues with your root chakra and have not been feeling secure, perhaps you find it hard to keep your throat chakra open and speak your truth, or maybe your sense of yourself is dulled at the center of the solar plexus chakra. There is so much to be explored and communicated through the chakra system and insights to the state of your being are only a session away.

Just because I can channel intuitively – here’s a message for you

I sat down today thinking I knew what I wanted to write about but couldn’t find the paper that¬†I had written on previously.¬†On the paper¬†was a message from one of¬†my newer guides the Goddess Sulis. She came in right around the change of the year for me and has been encouraging me to charge my water (see previous post).¬†Also, ironically as we are surrounded by a large mass of snow, that¬†everyone is not thinking so kindly toward, she has been guiding me to also charge the snow and its water molecules with Love. So I have been doing both. But anyway, I feel like to just hand the mic over almost and just channel write whatever comes through so here goes…

(One thing I want to say about channeling is that it is just simply listening and then relaying the information. This is a natural ability that comes with the building of one’s own intuition. You too can channel the messages of your guides with practice as well and they are SUPER helpful!)

… I close my eyes and take in a nice deep breath, centering in my own being and opening to that space where knowledge and guidance comes in from a higher level. I visually open my crown chakra to the light and let the words flow…

“I am here to tell you that there is something about your present circumstance that does not sit well with you, with any of you. You are a many splendid being and we know that your heart tends to¬† be in the right place however we see that your mind is often not. Where is your focus? At any given point in the day when you turn your attention inward, what are you focusing on? I would ask you to try this as an experimental experience, maybe set your timer to go off randomly and go on about your business and then at these random dawnings, as time is captured, you will need to physically write down what your thought is at this crucial point of intersecting awareness with your true state of being. What being are you being? After a day you will begin to see where your thoughts lie towards the negative or towards the positive. We are not to judge, we only see what can be improved upon and ask for you to improve your own state of being. Love and gratitude to you, you many splendid beings who choose to lead this life in its grandiose scale and be the brilliant being that you are though quite captured in the experience of humanness. We love you. Bless you.”

Ok, me again…Wow, that was fun and short and simple. It was a woman’s voice speaking but I have no idea who she was. It doesn’t so much matter in this moment, as I just trust and am open to receive, and good things come. I can say that for sure she was someone wanting to speak to you. I think she gives good information and I think I too will take her up on her guidance to take a physical journal of my thought patterns. Good luck to you as you do the same. Revealing what we might not so easily see about ourselves… where we have space to grow.

Namaste,
