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

Ok, I think I get it!

Sometimes I try too hard. Apparently that can actually block what it is that I’m trying to achieve. Bummer right!?

It’s like that scene from the Tommy Boy movie where Chris Farley pets the roll (see clip below).

In bringing awareness to my glitches today I had an amazing healing session and this is the phrase that I am left with…

I don’t have to control how things happen

I only need to trust that all will work out.

Feeling freer and lighter and happier right now 🙂

And letting go of being in control of how things happen and not doing this again…

Running Interference

Ever feel like YOU are processing energy for someone else!?

It’s challenging to not “get involved” when someone you have close connections with is going through a difficult time. Energy as a transferable force has no boundaries and can easily leak over and effect you even when it is clearly not yours.

This morning I found myself very anxious which is not a typical feeling that I normally have. Due to this unexplained feeling I came back to a re-occurring thought that I have been wondering about: Am I running interference for someone else?

I googled the definition to which I found:

run interference to help someone achieve something by dealing with the people or problems that might prevent them from doing so.

In the last couple months I have also been having moments at night where I will wake up and my energy is all over the place, restless, and uncomfortable. I know this is again not my normal self so where is this coming from? Why am I so restless?

Sometimes we do subconsciously run interference for those we love because we love them. We don’t want them to have to carry the overwhelm or burden all on their own. So energetically, I feel I have subconsciously been processing the energy of someone dear to me because at times it was just too much for them. Ok, no problem, I initially think. I am totally willing to do that, what difference does it make if I wake up restless every once in a while. However, now I am seeing that it is knocking me off balance and leaking into my day. That, I feel is just not necessary. I am at my best when I operate from my core influenced by only my own energy. It’s starting to make me second guess myself and feel confused and wonder what more can I do to help. But, I know that no clear answer will come unless I am able to tap into my own energy without interference.

So I simply ask myself, “What is it that I need the most?”

To which the first word that comes to me is, “Calming.”

It’s not the whole picture, it’s not the answer to all of the current issues, but it is a passageway where I will be able to clear and re-connect to myself from processing the energy of others for them. It is where I again, gain my own footing and get clear in my head about what is needed at this time.

So, I am going to take 10 minutes for myself in meditation doing the inner smile and the inner breath meditation, and see where I will come out afterwards.

We all run interference and we are not always so aware that it is happening so I too invite you to take a moment and just ask yourself, “What is it that I need the most?” Be still and silent and honor that first word or thought that comes to you. That is your spirit speaking up and it is worth listening too.

And further it may even be helpful for you to have the person you are running interference for do this as well, for their self. It will lend you each clarity and maybe even a direction of where to focus on in the present moment to bring more peace to the issue at hand and to take a baby step in coming back from the overwhelms of life.

I am working on my short story today and thought it would be nice to get some feedback. Positive comments and criticism are equally welcomed.

Here is the sample of writing. I invite you to read it and let me know your thoughts– does it intrigue you or hook you and would you keep reading the story?

Thanks bunches!!!

Short Story Snippet:

It was the middle of summer, sometime in July, when I had a waking dream about my Grandmother’s land. As a child I would frequent her home along with my mother and younger brother. It was during these same summer months years ago that I had connected to her land, the same place that I now found myself slipping through in a dream as I slept in the comfort of my own home, with my own family, and on my own land. Something was wanting for me to return there and connect again.

As my consciousness opened through the dreamscape I was brought back to this place of being that I knew quite well. I was back in the magic and the spirit of Grandma’s vegetable garden. As a child I never really put too much thought into understanding or appreciating the land that was my Grandmother’s. It was always just there. The hill that rolled down a grassy slope of earth and gave home to the orchard of apple, cherry, apricot, peach, and plum. The large black walnut tree that dropped curious green balls every September or the little raspberry plant stationed nearby that produced peculiar orange colored berries that I could never resist. My grandmother was sweet and attentive to her land, and I wish I had taken more of that in as a child. But sometimes not all things are understood or appreciated. Just experienced. And as a child I was inwardly caught up in experiencing myself vs. experiencing the world. Aware of the single moments of consecutiveness and less aware of how it all tied together and that there was indeed more to be aware of in the world but also on that land of my Grandmother.

So, I found myself awake in the dream and standing at the edge of Grandma’s garden. My toes just touching the deep earth that was home to so much here and that first row of vegetables I now noticed sprawling before me. The dark green of their leaves moving almost as if in words to say through the gentle garden air, “There’s more life to be shared.”

Last night I got the unique opportunity to take my children to a sacred drumming ceremony. It was in honor of the 8th Anniversary of the World Drum. The World Drum was created in Norway in 2006 and has been travelling across the world to many countries and many people uniting our sacred tie as human beings with one beat, the heart beat of the Earth. Its focus is on Peace and Environmental Issues.

My night wasn’t going so well. My daughter did not nap at preschool and was very crabby and my son too seemed to not be in a pleasant mood. I had wanted to take them out for a walk somewhere, take them to dinner, and then meet at the location of the World Drum event at 6:00pm for the ceremony. But, as often happens with children in your life, plans changed quickly based on the current condition of the child. I needed to bend to accommodate them and not take them out and about and potentially stretch them even further emotionally. So we stayed home, made dinner at home, and unfortunately the crabbiness continued. There were several points where I felt like just forgetting going to the World Drum event. But there was a piece of me that just wouldn’t let it go, I couldn’t get it out of my mind. So, I took the dare of this being a big mistake and brought my two crabby kids to the event in hopes that it would go well. I am so grateful that I did and was very thankful my children were peaceful for the experience– although who am I kidding, while in the presence of the World Drum how could one not feel peace.

My son Gavin happened to be holding the World Drum when it was time for the reading of the prayer. All other drums were silent as he alone got to beat the heart beat of Mother Earth on the World Drum during this very special moment in ceremony. It was very moving and I was very happy for this special opportunity given to him.

Here are a few pictures from our night: my children playing sacred flutes and Gavin with the World Drum.

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.

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. 😉

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. 🙂
