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.”
