Happy Thanksgiving with Gratitude for ALL of YOU!

Standard

Sunflower yellow

I have been on the road over a year now. Last Thanksgiving I was in Sedona and started the celebration by helping serve the community meal at the local Elks club. Then I went back to eat there with a friend and his girlfriend. Later, I was invited over to a local psychic/energy healer’s home for a feast with her friends.

This year, I am sharing it with a friend I met through a hairdressing/massage barter:)

There has been a lifetime of adventure, challenges, gifts, learning and healing over this year, way beyond my wildest imagination. I am grateful for every moment of it, even the hard times. Although I am certainly ready for more ease in my life, and it is what many of us desire, it seems the hard stuff is what truly moves us forward in leaps and bounds when we let it!

The world has gone through so much transformation this last year, as we geared up for 12/21/12 and many were left scratching their heads, wondering if anything had changed at all. But it has and I feel like the planet and humanity is on the verge, the tipping point into the life of rejuvenation, Oneness, peace and sovereignty that we’ve been working toward.

So I wanted to take the time to thank all of YOU for taking the time to read my blog, “like” it, and comment on it. I know your lives are busy and there are so many wonderful videos and blogs to watch and read on the web. My intention is that my posts help teach you some new things, ponder new ways of being, uplift and inspire you! Thank you for honoring me with the gift of your time and attention. May your lives be blessed in ever more cascading fountains of light and love. Happy Thanksgiving!

What’s your passion?

Standard

What's your passion?.

So true! For me, when I am in my passion, I am in my heart, in my center, lifted up out of the chaos and negativity of the third dimension, up to a higher dimension where magic, miracles, creativity, wonder and joy live and thrive.

One of the tools I use to get “there” is to imagine green, emerald green, all around me; then I breathe that into my heart, filling up all the cells, my lungs, my heart, my heart chakra, filled with this green, which some call adamantine particles. Then I fill my entire body with this until I am flowing out green.

I might place my dreams or desires into my heart and fill them with the green and then radiate that out. I might place my dreams/desires in front of me and breathe that green into it, lighting it up, lightening it up.

Or…I might just go for a walk and notice all the beauty around me, or play my guitar and sing and drop into the moment, or just bring all my loving attention to whatever task is at hand.

What is your passion? What brings you joy? What assists you in being in the center, in the moment? Please share and comment below!

Let Love In!

Standard

Love this cartoon and the article. I have had my heart ripped out, stomped on and shredded, but it is true that to shut down and block love only hurts myself. So sometimes you need to take time out to heal and then open your heart again. Perhaps you might want to start with opening your heart to a pet, a flower, a favorite tree or planet, a neice or nephew or neighbor child and then, gradually you feel strong enough to fully open your heart again.

Dolly Mahtani

As long as you’re alive, eventually you will get hurt by someone. I used to think that wasn’t true. That eventually you could find someone that would NEVER hurt you. Now I know that i’ts not even about that. It’s not about finding the perfect person, it’s not even about being the perfect person. It’s about accepting everything that happens to you and being the person that stands up. Life is not about falling down, it’s about getting back up. What really makes us who we are is not the person that broke our heart, but the person we became after our heart was broken. Every second, we are given a choice. How you react to something makes all the difference in the world. You could choose to shut the world out, be angry, resent ever letting your guard down, make a vow to never trust another human being again……

10 Steps To Effective Listening

Standard

Great Article!

ListenFrom Listening – an important aspect of effective communication

In today’s high-tech, high-speed, high-stress world, communication is more important then ever, yet we seem to devote less and less time to really listening to one another. Genuine listening has become a rare gift—the gift of time. It helps build relationships, solve problems, ensure understanding, resolve conflicts, and improve accuracy. At work, effective listening means fewer errors and less wasted time. At home, it helps develop resourceful, self-reliant kids who can solve their own problems.

Here are 10 tips for developing effective listening skills.

Step 1: Face the speaker and maintain eye contact.

In most Western cultures, eye contact is considered a basic ingredient of effective communication. When we talk, we look each other in the eye. Do your conversational partners the courtesy of turning to face them. Put aside papers, books, the phone and other distractions. Look at them, even if…

A Vote For the Gentle Light

Standard

Love this man’s poetry!

CultFit

a vote for the gentle light
burned senseless by other people’s constant
depression,
I pull the curtains apart,
aching for the gentle light.
it’s there, it’s there
somewhere,
I’m sure.

oh, the faces of depression, expressions
pulled down into the gluey dark.
the bitter small sour mouths,
the self-pity, the self-justification is
too much, all too much.
the faces in shadow,
deep creases of gloom.

there’s no courage there, just the desire to
possess something––admiration, fame, lovers,
money, any damn thing
so long as it comes easy.
so long as they don’t have to do
what’s necessary.
and when they don’t succeed they
become embittered,
ugly,
they imagine that they have
been slighted, cheated,
demeaned.

then they concentrate upon their
unhappiness, their last
refuge.
and they’re good at that,
they are very good at that.
they have so much unhappiness
they insist upon your sharing it
too.

they bathe…
