OK Mom, I’ll slow down & you jump out.  No really.  Just following orders.

Creating from the Heart

Saturday, May 8th, 2010

Note to readers: I have not looked at this blog entry since I posted it back on May 8th.  Today I had to log in to read it, as I couldn’t remember the password, and I was curious as to why I would lock an entry on my public blog.  I see now that I wanted to be sure to read it again at a later date, and I might not have if it had just been sitting there without any mystery attached to it.  I’m also pleased to find that I no longer feel the need to hide this from others, so here it is for anyone who is interested.  I will say that while I don’t have a motorhome yet, I did have a holiday in one at Burning Man (LOVED IT!), and I do feel much more myself than I have in a very long time.  I hope you all have weathered the call to become authentic, and continue to do so.  Please contact me by email or through Facebook if you’d like to share.  Remember, in the words of John Lennon – “There’s nowhere you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be….. All you need is Love”.

I have long been struggling with the concept of what my highest good might be, and what I should be doing.  Today I write from my heart – from a place of love & gratitude – to set the intention for the life I feel is mine.  A big part of my struggle has been trying to fit in – to be ambitious, to care about a job, or house, or other things that have value in the world I inhabit.  And yet while I can create a fair facsimile of wanting these, in truth it all rings hollow – I don’t care about those things at all.  And then I feel that there must be something wrong with me, and that I have somehow been damaged by my experiences.  In a very recent phone conversation with my brother, I found myself repeating quite vehemently – “There is nothing wrong with any of us!  None of us needs to be fixed!”  We are distracted from our power by feeling that we are flawed, and we set about trying to right the wrongs – putting us squarely out of the present moment, our only place of power.  We are so manipulated & controlled by our fear that we are not perfect, when in reality, every single one of us IS!  And yet we are caught in the trap of constantly distracting ourselves from our fear that we are not perfect.  And so on, and so on…..

So today, I accept that I am perfect.  Every one of my experiences was perfectly designed by me to create the perfection that I am now – every single one of them! The physical, sexual and emotional abuses that I suffered and inflicted.  The loving and unloving relationships.  The truths and the lies, the booze and the drugs, the sharing and the taking.  All perfect.  Every one.

OK, so now that we’ve got to this place of perfection, what would I like to do with it?  The truth is that my desire is to pay all my debts, buy a travel home with enough room for me & for company to join me on occasion, and to travel around North America sharing love & messages where it will be helpful – I want to be a channel of Peace, just like St. Francis.  In fact, I am sure that this is my next step, and it will arrive momentarily.  I am trying not to judge the path that takes me there – a path that has involved a seeming shirking of duties and a significant breakdown.  I know that this path I am choosing will appear to many to be a manifestation of a mental illness, but in truth I have been crazy trying not to be this person that I have tried to hide away with varying degrees of success.  I intend with all my heart for this transition to create no harm, and to that end, I invite abundance that will allow me to soften or mend the tears that my choices will seemingly make to others, all the while understanding that it is not my responsibility to do so.  I guess really my intention is that there be no harm – if it requires my having the abundance to use money to mend, then it will be so. 

To sum up – I am grateful for every person, event, place & thing that I have had the great good fortune to experience in this dimension & timeline – and also for everything in the others, too!  I am ready to walk in my peace & my truth without concern for the judgements of others – they do not belong to me & really aren’t any of my business.  As advised by an Angelic Messenger Card the other day – I no longer have to accept the dregs – I go forward as a fully loved, loving & abundant participant in this reality.   Let the fun begin!

Grounding Exercise – Try This At Home!!

Wednesday, May 5th, 2010

Yesterday I had the opportunity to once again practice this grounding exercise with a group of young people and was pleased that they all seemed to enjoy it.  Thanks to Emma, Patrick, Kasha, Cassandra, Bethany, Samantha, Meg & Steve for playing along, and to Lana, Cathy & Lesley for joining in too!  I guess because it took me many months of regular practice to break through the barriers of my “imagination” back when I started this in the late 80’s, I’m always surprised at how naturally it comes to almost everyone.  I’ve decided to post it here & I hope to receive some feedback on the ways people use it. 

To begin, sit comfortably, ideally with your back straight & your hands & legs uncrossed.  This allows your energy to flow more easily.   (more…)

and Breathe…..

Monday, March 15th, 2010

Well, it’s been quite a ride these past few months, hasn’t it?  Now spring is arriving & the light is returning, and the New Moon encourages us to let go & begin building again.  Central to our ability to stay calm & focused through all of this is the simplicity of Breath.

I invite you to sit quietly & be aware of your breathing for a few moments.  Most of us will find that we place a pause between our out-breath & in-breath.  Some of these pauses are longer than others, depending on our current circumstances & stress levels!  This is a learned behaviour that can keep us in a constant state of low-level fear – the body interprets the lack of breath as death.

Take a few minutes to practice breathing without pauses – Michael Brown in his book The Presence Process suggests thinking of it like a fountain, with our in-breath pushing the water up & the exhalation being the natural falling of the water.  Create a loop, so that your breath does not end.  Watch pets or young children for examples of how this is done. 

As always with techniques that help us remember that we are Spirit in a physical vehicle, learning to consciously connect our breath is simple but not always easy.  The benefits of more energy & less stress make it worth the effort.  Good luck!

Create in each moment

“Each person is actively in each moment creating the reality or the illusion of their reality in which they live and believe they exist.”

This is a quote from today’s Morning Message from Peggy Black. What does this mean for us? (more…)

Insomnia? Relax!

Sunday, November 22nd, 2009

I recently had a dear friend (thanks Julie!) ask for my thoughts on the insomnia that so many people are experiencing lately, and then later that same day the topic came up again in a group discussion, so I decided to post some info here.  Please share as you see fit.

I think we have always received guidance & information while we sleep – whether you believe it is from your subconscious mind or some higher power, we’ve all had the experience of feeling better or having a resolution to a problem after we’ve “slept on it”.  We are currently in a state of great change, all across the planet, and we are preparing ourselves for what comes next by accessing higher spiritual information.  In order to bring this additional information into our waking state, our energetic bodies are being enhanced or rewired, and this happens while we sleep.  Or at least it does if we can sleep!

Happy Hallowed Evening!

Saturday, October 31st, 2009

Well, here we are on the edge of All Saints/Souls/Day of the Dead, when the Veil thins & our loved ones who are no longer in physical form can mingle amongst us.  Some will take loved ones Home with them when the festivities are over, and how wonderful to leave at what is a very joyous time from a Soul perspective. 

Tonight the tricksters will be out to play along with the humans who get in the “spirit” of things (and spirits), and celebrate the joy of having a body to play in.  Be safe in your travels!

Take some time over the next few days to sit quietly & connect with those who are already Home.  They are always watching & love the chance to say hello.

Happy Hallowe’en!

Whew, what a ride!

Sunday, October 4th, 2009

Well, the past few weeks have been incredibly intense as we struggled through Mercury’s retrograde course & dealt with the ongoing rewiring of our systems in preparation for the New Energy.  Old memories popping up, relationships hitting on trouble spots that we’d thought were long past, and the crippling paralysis that left some of us wondering if we had literally lost our minds.  Well, this too has passed.  Or is passing.  Honest.

Mercury is once again direct, and the Moon is waning, inviting us to clear clutter & debris from our lives – and certainly the past few weeks have brought a new layer to the surface that we’ll be glad to let go of!  Each day we are asked to remember, and to trust, that the world is unfolding exactly as it should (refer to Desiderata on the Links page).  This trust gets easier as time goes on, and is enforced when we remember to watch for “god-winks” – those times when we are wondering about something & the answer arrives within hours, either in a media we’re engaged with or sometimes right from the mouths of strangers.  There are no coincidences – these are loving reminders that we are always on our Path, no matter what we or others think.  Trust, love and honour yourself and those in your life.  All is good.
