Years ago I was taught to always live in the question. In present time it is extremely essential for my healing on my spiritual path. What does that mean? It means that no matter what you hear, read, watch, there is a good chance that there is something else really going on. Don’t blindly accept it. Research it.

In this world of divide and conquer, so many just simply believe what what is in front of them. Watch the variety of crime shows and the thought that goes through the mind, it is just a TV show. No, it is going on all around you. But because on the news they said it happen, it happens. Or, I shouldn’t believe that it is conspiracy. But maybe, it is far fetched. But just maybe there is bit of truth to it. This does not only go for political. It is for spiritual as well.

There are so many people misleading others. At this point in my life, I ran into quite a few, and didn’t leave the lot of them until I got my behind burned. This was all in the line of seeking a spiritual mentor.

Telling someone that they should not study with another side, or mention what they learned from another source or group, Is a big red flag. This just happened to me in one group that I seemed to like. People were absolutely lovely. Then at some point, I was trying to understand something, by mentioning something I learned in another philosophy. They tried to squash me down like a bug. I backed out. I was told you have to play with what they are doing. I said no. I live in the question and If I can’t have free will. It is not for me.

What ever you are downloading into your brain, from what ever source. Always take a minute and ask your higher self is this good for you. Your higher self has you in it’s best interest.

Because of different pathways I took through out my life, I have chosen to take a balanced approached. I learned from a professor years back, that anything in fanaticism is brain dead. That is a value I hold close. Maybe sometimes you have to dive in deep to understand. It is important to pull back the reins to a balance stance. Choose balance, at this moment wisely. Because what you are studying isn’t always a bad choice. Sometimes it is the organization. Walk with your eyes wide open.

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.

The Self is Dangerous

My instinct was to change the gender on the above quote. But then it wouldn’t be a quote!

It has been a month now since just one more friend left me. This one didn’t like my way of thinking after taking years and many hours of my time, that I know that we both enjoyed. We supported each other, checked in on each other and in one night. it was a two way street. Then poof she flipped a switch out of no where. It certainly something that had nothing to do with me. People can certainly take time in life to retrospect, but no need to try destroy people in order to push them away. In the past I would have owned what is not mine. But I can see in this year along. I so clearly see this is not my circus. I sending only healing light her way.

Since I was a little girl, I never really felt I fit in with the regiment of religion or groups. I seemed to have run into the types that love to want to control. When they realize they can’t… they go in a major destruction mode. I’ve seen this pattern. I may fall a little bit, because I didn’t realize what hit me! I get up fast and I get stronger! There is always the person that said I didn’t get up fast enough. I have strong faith and there was always an instictual twinge within me saying….Nah! I always beat to my own drum. Everytime I go against my grain and try to fit in, I am the one that pays the price. As I got older, I really get tired of the trying. It is about taking advantage of my kindness…then using it against me. Some said along the way if they were me they would do it better. But guess what they are not me and it did what works for me. May not get done as fast as one would like. The end result was the main thing.

This doesn’t mean that I should isolate, or be mean to people. It means spend more quality time with me. Reflect, speak and listen to spirt. As I keep speaking my truth, I step into my truth. All the things people wanted of me, droped by your wayside, it simply didn’t fit! Just maybe all those years I’ve been feeding my emotions so I can fit in places that I really didn’t want to be. Did society really require my attendance? I just didn’t need to be there. Each second, moment and day is a new beginning to start fresh. If by me living by my own integrity is shining my light to bright. So be it.

Automatic Writing

I found this article that I have cited to be a very useful how to bit of info. I have used the process of autowriting for several years. I have not been able to receive messages audibly from spirit. I found that putting a pen to paper seemed to connect regularly for me. The messages are clear. I always ask for the highest and best purpose.

In the beginning I could not read what I wrote. So I asked spirit for me to keep my eyes open so I can reread the messages later on. Well I started to question message. Didn’t seem real. Then I just put the pen down and i started to scribble. I realized it doesn’t matter whether or not i can read it later. I got the message when i did. I rewrite later. Everyone is different. When I first started this work, I thought I wasn’t reaching spirit correctly. I wasn’t doing it psychically. But I was getting messages. Very important messages. This has helped me even more since my boys have past. I have been able to communicate with them.

This is very healing for me. It goes along with a lot of my journaling. I’ve looked back at many of my messages and it has made me smile what I’ve accomplished since writing. Try it and have fun. It is important to connect with your inner self. Take time for you. We all have the power to speak with our loved ones. They are all around us and would love to communicate with us. I went to a few mediums and one simply said do autowriting he has something personal he wants to tell just you. I started to trust the process at that time, more than ever.

Stormy Weather!

Stormy weather is not the trees blown in the wind, nor are the surprises coming from the weather people. They are the people who you least expect it to come from at full force with no warning. I can not control these people, nor do I wish too. But just because they say that I should, I could or do anything, doesn’t mean that I have too, nor does it mean that I’m a bad person or not a good friend. It means I do not do things in the same way or the same manor as they do. I can not control these types. What hurts is you had faith that these people are your friends. These storms come from out of left field like a tornado. I’m disappointed that is true. I can’t control the weather, but I can control me.

I’ve ducked for cover and wait out the storm during these times. I’ve had these blast of weather surprises come at me more than I care to mention. I have had to exercise the art of patience over the years. I’m a good friend and a listener. But that art of patience is not my strongest virtue when I’ve been dealt blast of stormy wind. I do not wish to be whipped around with the waves of emotion. I can either stay in its path or protect myself. I do not intend to be caught up in this one. I will wait out the storm. My strength has not withered, it is just knowing that this was not my storm to whether.

I’m Possible

We all have rough days. So more difficult than others. But we have to choose whether we want to mire in the muck or move forward. It’s a rainy type of day. My bones hurt and I can really surrender to going to sleep and stay in there until the morning.

For me when I feel things are impossible, I come into the office and start typing. I can write myself out of impossible and realize that I am possible. Sometimes this is a daily task. It works for me. Then I’ll take it a next step and talk to someone on here or on phone that I know that I can help. It gets me out of being in a pity party. Leaves me with a good feeling. What do you do to get you out of an impossible mood?

What is impossible?

To me this saying is to get past the fear, is put one step in front of the other. That sounds so simple. When you are in the middle of your deepest fear, depression or anxiety…you just want to smack someone when they say something so cliche!

When I read this quote. The first thing I thought of is to start with a cup of coffee!. That is necessary. It gets your mind thinking. I worked years amonst engineers and they always had a cup of coffee in their hand as they walked around with their minds in a creative place. I had many days that I looked at the white screen that needed words on it desparately. My mind was whirling and couldn’t figure what to write. I went to famous quotes, then images created my own meme in Microsoft Publisher. Wala, I have an image. No… it wasn’t my quote, No it wasn’t my image. It wasn’t even the original image the quote was on! But what it did is it made it possible for my mind to start writing and journaling.

The next step will be the impossible. That will be my own images that I create, and the quote maybe my own.

I see that this quote is a useful one especially when I don’t want to exercise. Just getting up is necessary. Walk a few steps, Then what I thought was impossible was walking down the street daily. Not quite there yet. When I go through difficult challenges, something so simple as starting with a cup of coffee or getting up off my butt…just might be the very thing that sparks the impossible! This could be used for organizing too. I have a few piles of stuff to be addressed! Looking at it this way. The Impossible is action. It becomes possible and then necessary! Try it!

It’s Time

I spent many years staying in the house. I did not exactly not have a good excuse and I used them all. Mainly no access to a vehicle, because of my partner’s work. I had a horrible accident back in 2011 with a 18 wheeler. It has left me with a challenge to walk. Something happened…maybe a divine intervention. I don’t know. But it wasn’t good on his part but definately for me. He landed in the hospital. He’s doing a little better. But he can’t work. So guess who has to drive.

It was easy to stay in the house and have a pity party. But I went online and found things to do that I like. I went to a meditation group and joined a book club. I love it. I’m not done yet! I’m going to be able to start doing Reiki in at the meditation group. I know my son wanted to me to get out more and be independent. I really started to do that after he passed in January. But then got quite comfortable sitting in my spot in front of the TV. I need to stick with this. My soul has been crying out to meet new like minded people. To come alive again. I loved getting out.

I’ve very glad that D (my partner) is doing well by the day. But he can’t really go out and work yet. When or if he does. I made an agreement to use the car in the day and he can work at night. He likes waking up late and I’m a mornings. It is amazing how you are thrown road blocks and then when you take a minute you get to see how they were not at all meant to block you but to free you!
