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.

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.

Looking at the brighter side of something not so bright!

It has been a rough week. My life partner has been admitted with both some heart and kidney failure. It has been very trying for me. Dealing with hospitals alone can send you in a whirlwind. It has been less than a year since my son died so all this stuff is fresh in my brain. I will trust he will be fine.

Since all this has happened, I had to get up and move around more, walk more, do more. Break through fears. It was rough the first couple of days. But now that it has been a week, it felt good to walk, it feels good to get up and to do things. I’m choosing to eat healthier. Key is why do I need a horrible event to get me moving. I am not alone on this, that I know.

Sometimes when we are faced with something like this. We have to look in the mirror and say. Hey what is it about me that I don’t like with this situation. I am in no position to call the kettle black, I can be mad at him if I am not caring for myself. Wake up time!!!!!

This is your movie!

This life… is your movie, You have choices to make for you and for no one else. Like the above meme states we have to accept the consequences for every deed, word, and thought throughout our lifetime. Taking responsibility is not always easy. But it is very healing. Because you get to see how much power you really do have within yourself. You can choose to have a roll on how it plays out for you.

Someone I know, gave me some bad news that they thought could happen if things don’t change and I don’t take action. So my thinking started to go on a whirlwind downhill. I’ve been upset and miserable because of this for several days. Then I realized that is my story not anyone elses. I awakened with the feeling that I can change this. So I kept repeating my favorite saying. Everything will be ok. I kept doing this and realized that the energy shifted. I was not miserable. We were joking and things started to look uplifting around me. I felt good things are coming my way.

When we get flustered, we tend to seek outside of ourselves to see what someone else may have to offer on the topic. But ultimately it is up to us. We take what we need and leave the rest. Ultimately the choice is ours and how we react or act. Sometimes we are dealt some really rough issues. Sometimes too many at once. However, this is the time to take to go within and meditate. Take a deep breath, and see what advice spirit has in store for you. You might be surprised. If you are headed down a path that starts to appear just not right…turn around and run.

Years ago I was told by an elder that I was a very strong person. During these times when I feel like I’m drowning, I tend to reach up to a sinking ship, wondering why they can’t save me. In many instances, I’ve been the one pulling them up by the boot straps anyway! This is the time that I need to pull up my big girl pants and walk to shore. Because I am actually in shallow water all that time. I can count on me like I always have and get on with life.

Note: Rely on yourself and your own creator every time you are confronted with a path that was not meant for you.

It’s MY TURN

Back on the 6th of September, I had celebrated my life on this earth for 67 years. I never hid the number from anyone. As time has passed, I learned many lessons. I noticed that some really are not repeating anymore. I celebrated those. I have hit the existing ones head on.

As I grow older I matured. my mind didn’t feel old, but my body reminded me. My body took the brunt end of my emotions through those lessons. The lesson that took the hardest hit at me was the loss of my two children. Wondering why I’m here and the two boys left at such an early age. My friend told me that my eyes looked vacant yestersday. This bothered me. Because I saw it in the photo myself.

Why me? That wasn’t the question. The creator doesn’t want a pity party! I took that lesson to task and asked the creator on the Harvest Moon. A time when the vail between the worlds is thin. I trust the creator, but doesn’t mean I have to like the answer. I try to understand it. The answer was that I fulfilled my purpose as a parent into ascending their spirtual growth to their perspective levels in the upper dimensions. They did their part in my lessons into ascending to my level of spirituality on earth. As I mature I may not have done so if they were not in my life to test me. This was an agreement on the other side between us. They were my teachers there and on earth.

Trying to understand this thought I remembered reading a meme a few months ago about how when you lose a child, that you are at a very high spiritual level at this point in time and closest to the creator. The grief is so gut wrenching that you have nothing left to lose. This also means that the greatest and strongest power is within us to create. To have endless flows of energy. But i couldn’t see it at the time. As the fog and shell shock of grief starts to wear off, you start to create , write, draw, design, stitch fheal and many other wonderful things. I’m finding a sense of peace that knowing my children are in good hands and they are serving their purpose. I know they are around me all the time.

Now it is my turn to pay attention to the path and the direction I am going. I am free to do this now. Just have to give myself the permission to do so. I saw after I got that message last night that I have some marching orders. I was set free, thekids are ok. Doesn’t mean I’ll ever not miss them, I certainly love them. It means that it is out of my hands. It is my turn to be healed and then to heal. To heal through my arts and through my gift of healing. My soul has been hungry for a long time. Grief has taken a good part of the past 7 years of my life between my two beautiful sons. Time to feed her and not my body.

Simply speaking

Many people have not comprehended the impact of the word. We have a choice. We create our own reality? We can either bless ourselves, or curse ourselves. This can be very empowering to us. Most of us are inherently good people. We want good experiences for ourselves. Positive outcomes can simply show up for ourselves by being conscious about what comes out of our mouths.

The spoken word is energy. Many of set our ourselves up for failure, then wonder what hit us. By using the words I can’t, shouldn’t, won’t, these are just a few.

We all have an opportunity to use the creative word energy to impact our lives. We CAN manifest what ever we want. Catch ourselves as we spew negativity from our mouths. We all do this and it is so unnecessary. Changing it instantaneously, can change our mood and behavior just as fast.

I challenge you to try just for a week. I always encourage to journal. Feel free to comment. Would love to hear from you!

How Do I Know All This?

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!
