For those who grieve

Its is Friday afternoon, I’m relatively in a good place. Like most, I would like the world to be a better place. I reach out and talk and help others that have lost a child (children), but I have realized that I want to help more with moving on with their lives. Our children are with us all the time. So making a choice to be happy or sad, healthy or sick is all up to us!

There will always be certain dates, situations or things that trigger you. That is totally normal. However, not fully living is not what our children would have wanted us to do.

First we have to make our selves happy. What does it look like. Reading and educating yourself. Good food plan and exercise, journaling and meditation, communicating with others. Communication that is only moving you forward. Believe me, I’ve had to walk away from some.

in the beginning, I felt guilty at first, when I started to do well. Each day gets better. You can apply this to other lost ones in your life.

Love to hear how you have moved along!

The answers you are looking for are inside!

After years ( I can say years !) of being a truth seeker of many philosophies and religions, I honestly was spinning my wheels looking back. Not one proved to be more fulfilling than the other. If so, it was short lived. The knowledge base I have developed, is amazing, but not quite the whole Akashic records!

For this attention deficit goddess, I was all over the place. I’d get pulled to one then the other. What I didn’t understand, I made charts for. This helped me to put the pieces together. What I found was there was nothing under the sun that is new. Just several different authors spinning the same wheel. This is not necessarily a bad thing. Not all people get the message in the same manner.

The other issues I ran into was seeking a teacher. I wanted a mentor. There were some good ones, some bad ones. The bad teachers were the ones that would not release the student. This was due to their own ego issues. Nothing stopped me, I kept looking. They were there for a purpose. Well they were all there for a purpose, I have come to learn. Some got to show me my shadow side.

Then there were the groups. When I was back in college, I did a paper on cults. They all have a big lie, they tell you who you can or can’t talk to. They let you know you can only be with them in their thinking. When I first started in a group, the information was pretty much interesting and attracted my attention. The people were so friendly. Like most, that is what I needed more than the information, now that I look back on it. Most of the time I got out in time unscathed. There were times I payed a dear price with my mind, body and spirit. I picked up my big girl pants and moved on.

In my autumn to winter years of my life, I have not stopped seeking. By this time, I recognized that both eastern and western thoughts were basically the same. They all had the basic moral laws to live by.

In 1996, I started in my Reiki Energy training. In 2000, I was certified as a Reiki Master/Teacher Certificate. I meditated before, but even more so when healing myself and others. As I pulled the energy down from God through my crown chakra. I learned to be still and clear my mind. By the time I achieved mastery, learned to listen to myself, by getting messages from my higher self. I trust this is God, Goddess, Spirit, Buddha or Allah. Doesn’t matter. I stand on the shoulders of all these great masters. They taught me well. They are all of the collective consciousness. All of them are listening. But the main thing am I? Now I can say yes!

The best lesson I learned, was to ask my higher self if there is something needed to be learned from all this knowledge. I’m laughing now, but my Attention Deficit came in handy. I learned a specific piece of knowledge, got anxious and moved on. It was not meant for me to stay with it, I’d read the book for days if it was truly calling me. Even when someone is being evil and mean There is a reason, they were placed in my movie for me to learn a lesson.

I didn’t do this at the time you were going through the process. But we hold on to these experiences in every cell of our body. It is time to release the negativity. Take a look at what is still ailing ourselves and let it go. It is Never too late.

Be the light for you!

We all have the capacity to shine and be the light. Sometimes along the walk of life there was someone that said to us, somehow…No not you! Whether it was a clergy, your parents, peer. Doesn’t matter. It sunk in and we found it difficult to fight that mind set. As you get older (you couldn’t tell me this at 20), you find that what you were told, wasn’t necessarily all true. You start to gather information, you pull it together and then realize. Wait a minute. That is not true.

We are humans, but we also are spiritual beings as well. I find the quicker we bounce back, the quicker we start to shine the light. Some circumstances are more difficult than others. They are lessons we must go through. When we arrive on the other side, we tend to have an ah hah moment. If not, we repeat. You got a life time to practice. However, quicker you learn, the easier you are able to stand on your feet, and move on.

Move on to what, you wonder. You move on in life. Even when you get older, you get a reprieve from daily strive. Then bam, a situation comes along for you to pay attention to. Or not. Maybe this one is not your circus. Maybe you have to sit back and let them follow through on their own. You are at this moment preparing yourself for what lies ahead. Maybe it is just rest. Maybe another lesson. No matter what comes across your pathway…always strive to shine through. Have a wonderful day!

Be still and know

I can’t begin to tell you how many times that I have typed out a response or a blog and ended up erasing whole thing. Many times I was getting out my anger and didn’t need to really say that. Just needed to get rid of it the anger that was holding back my creativity. Then I proceeded to write with flow.

This doesn’t happen all the time. When we make a conscious effort to think before we speak we know intuitively that it is not right or not to get out there. Especially when publishing. I also don’t like to intentionally try to hurt people either. I tend to try to make things better and as a result when I need the recipicle attention. I get upset because it is not there. In this case it is important to stop and ask yourself what exactly is the motive of the communication.

What many people don’t realize is that our words are spells. Starts with thoughts, then words come out of our mouth then into action.

If you don’t name it…you don’t have to claim it!

If you don’t name it so you don’t have to claim it! Words to live by as a self healer. Breathe into the pain…and let it go. Most likely it will disappear and you won’t have to think about it again!

I’m not saying if your heart hurts you might want to have it checked out at the ER. I had learned a lesson over the years. That I do go and get some labs done. Self diagnosis, sometimes needs help. My thyroid gland is slow, so I started taking raw thyroid. Now…it wasn’t that the raw thyroid was bad. It was that I was not being monitored and that I ended up in the hospital with all my major organs starting to shut down. I won’t do that again. I don’t mess with it. But I take care of my health now. I also look at other facets that might be connected with communicating. It’s my 5th Chakra. What am I afraid to communicate. I go within, I breathe, Most often I get my answer. I take action…which will let it go!

I invite you to start looking at your symptoms first. Before claiming a name of what you got! Feel free to ask question.

Because everyone matters!

I am not going to apologize for saying Happy Holidays, because I like to include everyone. There are so many different holidays during this winter season. People already feel separate and not included. This time of year is hard for many people. Why not make someone feel that they were truly thought of.

Happy Holidays!!!

My Halloween Cat! She is about 8 weeks old. That works out around Halloween. I found her 2 weeks ago under my house, crying and hungry and cold. No other cats around her We brought her in the house and she is now ours.

She’s making my heart sign during this difficult time of year for me.

Just Breathe

I can go for plenty of days and not a darn thing gets done. So unproductive of me. I took the time this morning to go within and meditate. A good amount of time. What a difference. I had more energy and a better attitude. I have said to myself no it doesn’t… but I feel so much better. I feel connected. I want to do things. I have a clearer vision.

When I first meditated I had all these questions. First, am I doing it right? Well just close your eyes and take a deep breath and you’re on your way. It isn’t rocket science. I thought it was years back. Do I need a mantra? Yes, you do if you are doing transcendental meditation. There was someone who told me I was doing it wrong because I didn’t do it their way. I am so done with that way of thinking! I do it my way!

I was in a class where everyone sat on the floor so , I thought I couldn’t meditate if I couldn’t do that and sit crosslegged! I can’t do that! So I asked for a chair. When I am home I just lay down in bed. Sit down at the base of tree! Be consistent in doing meditation. No matter how you choose to practice. I feel the key was just to do it. Clear your mind. Chanting a sound…this will distract you from all the mind chatter. Try just sounding out the vowels a,e,i,o and u. they will also clear your chakras. Take in some good deep breaths and that is all there is to it. Try to journal your thoughts afterward. It helps!

I miss you, Brett

December 17, 1986 to December 5, 2012

There have been 7 years since you have passed. Not a day goes by when I don’t think about you. I miss you so much. I know you are watching over us. You had a heart of gold. You were a great dad! Always a good kid and joking and very loving! You now have your brother in heaven to keep you company and causing mischief! You are gone but never forgotten my dear son.
