Letting Go: Essential for Spiritual Growth

Everyone that has come into your life has done so for a reason. We have chosen to come to earth to experience spiritual growth, and we are all on our own paths. We are not all here to accomplish the same tasks, however one thing that remains the same is that we are growing. There are people that will challenge us, yet through those challenges, we become stronger, and it merely takes a moment for us to stop to realize this so that we can thank them for the challenge. Our ego gets involved when we feel the urge to yell at them or curse them, complain about them or shun them…but there is another truth important here. These people that challenge us, and even some that don’t, are not always meant to be forever within our lives throughout a lifetime. Perhaps we need to learn something from them, and vice versa (for we are always learning from each other), and then we move on. It may not always be necessary for us to remain physically beside each other, though of course you will always be a part of anyone you have had contact with, for we are all a part of each other. It may be essential for your spiritual growth to part ways with another soul, and in that parting there are a lot of emotions, because it is hard to part with someone you have a strong soul connection with. Allow yourself to feel those emotions for they also an important part of your spiritual growth…there is intense love in letting go. Side note: when a relationship has to end, why end it on a sour note? Thank the person for all that you have learned and experienced with him/her, forgive, and send love. There is intense love in letting go. There isn’t any need to end with negative feelings for the “end” has happened for a reason. Be thankful for the chance to experience more in life and more opportunities for your soul to...

Solsbury Hill ~ (Peter Gabriel)

Lyrics Climbing up on solsbury hill I could see the city light Wind was blowing, time stood still Eagle flew out of the night He was something to observe Came in close, I heard a voice Standing stretching every nerve I had to listen had no choice I did not believe the information Just had to trust imagination My heart was going boom boom, boom Son, he said, grab your things, I’ve come to take you home. To keeping silence I resigned My friends would think I was a nut Turning water into wine Open doors would soon be shut So I went from day to day Tho my life was in a rut till I thought of what I’d say Which connection I should cut I was feeling part of the scenery I walked right out of the machinery My heart was going boom boom boom Hey, he said, grab your things, I’ve come to take you home. Yeah back home When illusion spin her net I’m never where I want to be And liberty she pirouette When I think that I am free Watched by empty silhouettes Who close their eyes, but still can see No one taught them etiquette I will show another me Today I don’t need a replacement I’ll tell them what the smile on my face meant My heart was going boom boom boom Hey, I said, you can keep my things, they’ve come to take me...

You Can Be Happy If You Want To

Recently, someone mentioned to me, “I wish I could just be happy,” and I had to express to them, “You can if you want to.” Let me explain what I mean by this. Happiness comes from within you. You bring a feeling of being content with everything that you do, and you can allow yourself to be happy doing whatever it is that you are doing. If you are doing something that you do not particularly enjoy, you can still be happy if you bring that attitude to where you are. You have a choice in being happy and you can create happiness in your experience of life. Now, there are reasons to feel disappointed, sad or under the weather, so to speak. Through these emotions, we have opportunities to grow, we have opportunities to take those emotions and transform them into creations. For example, since I am a writer, I tend to take those “negative” types of feelings and create something with words. Those are times when powerful creations are born. Reading those creations afterwards instantly transforms my mood, because art is beautiful and is a catalyst for transformation. Though, if you are not a creative artist in that sense, there are other ways you can utilize what you feel and change it around: by exercising, participating in sports, relaxing, etc. That “negative energy” then becomes something beautiful and an inspiration for many other areas of your life. So, if you are feeling down recently, why not choose to change it around now? Go and create something beautiful… All my love,...

Things That I Love

Things that I love: The smell of chocolate chip cookies in the oven the feel of the wind running its fingers through my hair the sound of birds chirping on Sunday morning dreams of connecting with my essence during sleep Silence ~ this is where self discovery and truth reside the calm of a warm bubble bath with candles, soft music and my eyes closed the smell of laundry in the dryer (I’m a sucker for nice smells 😉 ) laughing so hard I almost don’t make it to the bathroom in time playing Mad Libs and laughing some more talking about anything and everything creating ~writing ~ I have so many ideas for future projects ~ some include connection with music (I’ll keep you surprised) Christmas: getting gifts for people, wrapping, baking fudge, being with family, listening to the carols, the connection to giving and being at this time moves me ~ didn’t Elvis sing, “Why can’t every day be like Christmas” ~ ah, but we can create that, and we will soon Seeing my mother smile Cuddling with my beagle. I love dogs… Gelato Ice Cream at Piccomolo…Café Espresso is awesome! Being thankful for all that I have in my life and all that is coming to me Cool bed sheets against my naked skin (love feeling fabrics) My name ~ I think it suits me perfectly Reading ~ I love taking a ride with someone through the journey of their life. I enjoy watching others go through transformations…it is a beautiful thing, this thing we call life. Camping ~ I enjoy nature and being away from all the material things that can disconnect us from enjoying the beauty of the world Throwing different types of sticks into the fire to hear and watch their reaction as they merge with the fire The sound of water on the embers as the fire dies down Getting my back and neck cracked Bonding with people and helping others to connect with each other Exercising ~ a natural high Getting my nails done ~ love the massage they give too! Watching movies ~ coincides with reading a book, taking a journey with the characters is fun The law of attraction and how powerful it is in my life The sound of ice cubes crackling when first placed in a drink The drum ~ it is like a heartbeat Having my hair played with ~ this is an inexpensive way of giving me a piece of heaven Whispers in my ear 😉 The feel of grass on my bare feet Long phone conversations that last into the wee hours of the...
