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.
One thing you will come to know about me. Is that I will respect your opinion. But my pet peeve. Is when my idea is not respected in return. This is when I get a tad irritated. It is ok to have my opinion.
When someone questioned me, sometimes I would fluster and change my opinion in my early years. I don’t need to. I believe in the idea that we can heal ourselves is an idea that I have stuck by for many years. It is what I believe for me.
I bring forth ideas that I have tried or would like to try for towards a better healhy me. I am not telling anyone to ditch their doctor. You can do many of the these methods in conjunction with having doctor. Like deep breathing. What I would like for you to understand. Many times you can try natural remedies before you rush to take medications. Grief is not a mental illness. It is a natural process we go through when we lose someone. Why would they prescribe a med for this?
I live in a 55+ state of Florida. If you go into the doctor, you will see people carrying in a Walmart bag full of medications they take. Many times there are more than 3 for each body party they are hurting. I just ask you to question this. Why need 3 -5 pills for one modalady? Really? All the effects of one lead to more ailments and more pills which lead to effects. Is this what you want?
Did you realize that if you want to take a vitamin that you are unsure of, you can check with your pharmacist. They will check it out and print out any conflicts. Usually vitamins don’t have many, but they can. So wise to check. Just to be sure.
Because I choose alternative ways of healing, doesn’t mean I don’t get sick. What I do, is listen to my body. I know when I’ve done too much of one thing, I pull my self back and get back on my program. I have to take responsibility for my own health, so how I do it is my choice and doesn’t mean It’s wrong. I find when I start to get myself off sugar, and any junk food. Start to eat well. I do feel wonderful. My arthritis lets up, I’m not in pain. Many other changes start to happen that feel great! The magic happens in this moment! What are you going to try that is new this week to take care of yourself?
There is a hurricane coming! Meteorologist is in high gear on TV, and they are soooo excited! People all around are at the stores buying up all the water and supplies. Well, I can really freak out or not. First of all, they have no clue what direction it is going. I am watching all the people panic. Many Floridians already know this. Some still panic.
I check to see if I had batteries and all the things you need for the go-bag. I got food. I filled the water bottles. Which I have not developed the list yet. It is Thursday, It is not coming until Monday and that is if it hits here. Well ran out of batteries, ordered from Amazon, here by tomorrow. The task is done.
Worry makes us old! There are so many times we waste so much time with unnecessary anxiety. Don’t get me wrong, I lived through 2 horrifying experiences in 2004 with 10 each without electric. Not to mention the level 5 coming at us 5 years ago that didn’t hit our area that bad. I don’t want to go through this again. Yes, I am nervous. But we have time. I have the stuff in the house.
It is not hitting to Sunday, Monday or maybe Tuesday. So how many days are we going to put our body into turmoil? We do this to ourselves, not just through hurricanes. Anxiety is so harmful to us. We don’t need a pill. We can do this! It is important at this time to stop and pause, pace yourself, take a few deep breaths. Make your list. You just might be surprised that you already have most of the items and your go-to bag is full. If the hurricane doesn’t even come your way. You put yourself through an unnecessary unliving hell for nothing. Now Breathe!
I decided to change my desk around, originally because the A/C vent was freezing me out! My dear partner helped me move things around. I solved that situation. But what I also did was make room for my art supply caddy! There is also plenty of room to move my keyboard out of the way and take a sketch pad out.
I then turn my chair around and I’m at my design table. I’m a happy camper today! I find that as i reorganize my office, I’m finding the energy open up to create easier.
The past year, I have been having visions of drawing something. I don’t have the tools or the know-how to do what I saw. However, I have ordered all the types of pens and brushes I need. I’m going to go to learn something this week. The internet has unlimited resources to choose from. I’m ready to play!
I don’t know about you…but I need this constant reminder. Because there are times I let myself down. I know I can create miracles like we all can! I’ll go into a pity party and even I don’t like me. So Out of nowhere, today I said I was going to come into the office and create. So I did! Sometimes I amaze myself. I’m being funny here.
The picture I added to this post is what I designed today. I am an earth sign and needed grounding. The color brown is all about being all-natural and organic. About security, stability, and support. I’m needing that today. There are not any precious stones on this piece. However, there is copper. It is a healing metal. It is a conductor of energy. Copper is linked to the divine and the Queen of Heaven.
When I want to empower all my existing power within. I pull a piece of jewelry or a crystal to speak to me. I just don’t design. I Chant and heal as I work on each piece. This is the power within What do you do in your life that enhances the power within?
Ive spent most of my career in the computer world. With over 40 years experience, I’ve learned that before you take on a project, you map out your plan.
Why not take this knowledge to everyday life. In our busy lives, we forge ahead to get through our daily tasks and then wonder why they don’t get done. I took a time management course. I learned that completion creates energy, incompletion, deminishes it. So we have a choice which direction to take on this map.
Programming is a lot of yes, no, if, then, and that thought process. You take situations of your life through this process. Write it down.
You get to see how much time you waste. You also make time for more activities. Some steps are just not necessary, so why go there or do them?
You also get to see how silly you were, to be anxious over a task, how easy it was to complete. Simply by eliminating unnecessary tasks on your journey.
I invite you to start mapping your life tasks, so you can make room to be truly alive!
Love to hear from you!
Over the past 45 years, I have learned so much. I didn’t limit myself and there was always something just waiting for me to absorb the information. I love to learn (not test). I stood on the shoulders of giants in the metaphysical and natural healing fields.
My first introduction to healing was with Louise Hay books. You Can Heal Your Life. Her principles are on cause and effect. That we create our own illness, but we can create our wellness too. I liked this concept and I adapted it to my own core principles throughout the rest of my life. Over the years, as I learned new tools, I found myself going back to these principles.
These learning tools are just the way I followed my path. Not saying this is the way you should. No one can tell you that you should do anything. This is what helped me. My favorite part of Louise Hay’s book is she had a chart in the back of her book. That listed the ailment and then the cause. And a positive affirmation with the intention of healing the concern.
After all these years what do I do with all this information? There are many giants in this industry that I studied and I learned from. I will be sharing them with you and you can enjoy your own learning journey. Share it with you!
In the morning, I say this prayer that I learned as a Reiki Practioner/Teacher.
Just for Today
- I will not get angry
- Don’t Worry
- Show appreciation (or be thankful)
- Work hard (or with diligence)
- Be kind to others
When friends let me down. Yes, they are human. I turn to my crystals. They are wiser and present a deeper meaning to what I really need to know. Lapis Lazuli is a stone for wisdom. I made this for myself for the very purpose to bring forth insights!
I view a crystal as a transmitter to the sacred space within each and every one of us. This is where energy overflows and it is one of our keys or our tools for transforming ourself. Many sages believe that crystals have the highest form of knowledge, and they can show us what we need in the past, present, and future. They speak to us.
When we wear jewelry we infuse their healing qualities. They are from the earth. They all have a chemical make up. If our body needs that chemical in our body it will take from the stone. Like shells have calcium. It will take what it needs. Lapis has a long chemical make up …so I simply use charts. When looking for insight, you are not going for physical healing, however, it will do the healing anyway.
When I design jewelry, I also pray and chant as I design it. I love working with mostly natural stones. I love the feel of it. Plastic just doesn’t do that for you. I may use it for design and space. In this piece, the copper also has properties along with Swarovski crystals.
People of the east have been using crystals to help us live harmoniously for thousands of years. The west took hold of it in the 80s and adapted it to our holistic way of living. I will be bringing forth other healing stones and designs as we go along. Have a wonderful day for yourself and find a stone that suits you and sees what it has to say!
I was sitting in my favorite chair as I was reading one book on energy. I felt I needed another, Just because it wasn’t giving me the answer I needed. Because I was being lazy, I looked online first to see if I can find something (you can always find a home for another book). I didn’t find what I wanted I needed. So I did get up and walked along the wall of books that I own and found just what I needed.
Before I found what I needed, I looked at all the names of the books as I scanned them. I realized how much fun it is that I have this library to just go to when I want. I’m like a little child and always in awe of them. They are my friends. As I scan them the right one will speak to me!
I sat down and the book I found was exactly what I needed. I was looking for QiGong Healing, This book said massage. But it was actually the same according to this book. I just got so engrossed in it and am going to add it to my healing knowledge toolbox.
I went down for a nap after I looked over the book. I was happy about what I found. I woke 2 hours after and jumped to the floor because I couldn’t wait to write. Yes, I love to write. This is how I know what my passion is. I never took the time to write a book. I’d write 10 to 12 pages, maybe more. Coming to this format and writing what I love to talk about and share, Makes me happy. Thank you for being there my friends.
