Food for thought…dealing with Pain and its accompanying emotional, mental and spiritual upheavals

Not In India

MOVING BEYOND PAIN

Pain, (can be physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, or a combination of these), is frightening, frustrating, debilitating and depressing. Pain is our body’s way of telling us that something is wrong…something needs to be fixed.

FB_IMG_1471263964552

Whether the pain is prolonged and chronic, or sudden and acute, it is not something we can ignore. We worry, we obsess, we try everything possible to make it go away…we look for reasons, we try to understand…and still the pain persists!

FB_IMG_1453189576166

Prolonged pain, especially where no immediate solution is found, is frustrating and frightening. It effects our day to day functioning and leaves us with a feeling of complete hopelessness when confronted with its uncertainty. It is a very frightening place to be especially when we see no imminent relief in sight.

It is weakening and debilitating, using vast stores of energies, and the unresolved issue leads to extreme levels of stress…

Perfection in Uniqueness

We are spectacular BECAUSE of our differences. They are what make us Simply Unique and Perfect.

PERFECTION IN UNIQUENESS

Here is a small sampling of the huge variety of flowers I encountered while doing my errands in town today

wpid-img_20150522_145831.jpg  wpid-20150430_100105_hdr2.jpg.jpeg

The Divine Artistry and Creativity of Nature is truly astounding. No human hand could ever produce such perfection, such variety, such uniqueness.

wpid-img_20150514_142514.jpgwpid-20150430_100727_hdr.jpg

These are all “Flowers”, but each is individually amazing, spectacular, and wondrous in its own beauty.  Each one is completely different than the other.  Their being different doesn’t make them any less amazing, spectacular or wondrous.  Simply Unique and Perfect.

In the same way, we have all been created by God, Divinely special, unique, perfect.  We are precise works of Divine Art, designed and created exactly as we should be. PERFECT exactly as we are.  UNIQUE in ways that are astoundingly beautiful.

A Candle in the Darkness?

Not In India

A Candle in the Darkness?

wpid-img_193056703427578-1.jpg
We all understand the concept of lighting a candle in the darkness.

A candle will always light up a dark room just as love always wins over hate.
But what if you put the candle, the love, into a Black Hole? It will simply be swallowed up into the unending abyss-in this case, the unending abyss of hatred and evil-without lighting up anything-having no impact whatsoever.
No matter how dark a situation seems, no matter how much hate and evil there seems to be, if we light a candle of love and light, the darkness should be defeated .

But what happens if instead of regular darkness we are dealing with a Black Hole … a darkness of a whole different Nature. A Black Hole simply swallows up everything that enters it.
What if instead of the normal darkness of hate and evil we are…

Just as Nature is in constant change, but is perfect as it is at every moment, so our lives are constantly changing, and must be accepted as perfect exactly as they are, each and every moment.

Letting Go

Not In India

image

To Let Go isn’t to forget, not think about, or ignore. It doesn’t leave feelings of anger, jealousy, or regret.

Letting Go isn’t winning and it isn’t losing. It’s not about pride and it’s not about how you appear and it’s not about obsessing or dwelling on the past.

Letting Go isn’t blocking memories or thinking sad thoughts and it doesn’t leave emptiness, hurt, or sadness. It’s not giving in or giving up.

Letting Go isn’t about loss and it’s not defeat. To Let Go is to cherish memories, but at the same time to overcome and to move on. It is having an open mind and confidence in the future.

Letting Go is accepting. Letting Go is learning and experiencing and growing.

To Let Go is to be thankful for the experiences that made you laugh, made you cry, and made you grow. It’s about all that you have, all…

Like riding in an ambulance for the first time? Being wheeled into and out of strange mechanical devices that blink and whir? Eating” new” food? Sleeping in a bed you can move up and down with a lever? Receiving magical potions which relieve pain instantly? Ooohhhh….how exciting! What an adventure! So grateful for the opportunity to experience all these new things! 🙂

Lessons in an Illusion

Not In India

Loving an Illusion

Loving an Illusion.jpg

I loved an illusion which I very cleverly created and sustained for 2 1/2 years. I finally was blessedly jolted into reality, and once the illusion was shattered, there was nothing left to love.

It was surprising and confusing at first, but definitely not painful. I loved deeply and truly with my whole heart, my whole body , my whole spirit, and it was glorious.

I learned important lessons about myself and relationships which will serve me well in the future, and I will be eternally grateful for them. But once the lessons were successfully learned, there was no longer a need for the illusion, and it dissipated before my very eyes.

I will never be the same for having gone through this beautiful experience and am definitely a better person for it-more open, capable of loving fully and receiving love fully, without Fear.

I am supremely…

A True Blessing

TRUE LOVE.jpeg
True Love – Loving fully and without fear, will never leave you empty, in pain and broken, but enriched and rewarded. It is a blessing from above which is just that-a blessing!
Even when the person must leave your life for some reason, the blessings he brought into your life while you were together, remain. Your heart is not broken beyond repair…It is simply confused.
Once the confusion clears-in its own time-your heart will remain as strong and open to receive new love as it was before. And once it is ready, new love will easily find its way to you, and into your heart.

Release, Recoup, and Reorganize

cartoon flowersMay I be blessed with the Faith, Freedom from Fear and Patience to truly make the most of this beautiful resting phase.

….a place to rest, wind down and relax following a period of extreme turmoil, particularly in the areas of financial security and relationships. This place can be of great blessing if we can muster the patience to appreciate the blessings of this place joyfully and gratefully and of course with great Faith in the wisdom and compassion of God and the Universe.

let go and let god

It is imperative that I take proper care of myself during this transition in all ways…spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally, without becoming anxious or fearful.

I have no idea where the path is heading or even if I will continue along the same path I am now on.  Perhaps big upheavals are in store, or perhaps little changes which will slowly lead me in a new direction.

My natural curiosity and impatience make this waiting difficult and I need assistance in curbing them.  It is an essential part of my daily prayer and meditation session now to request this assistance from God, the Angels and other Enlightened Beings and Ascended Masters.

Springtime is a natural period for cleansing, rebirth and rejuvenation. We see it all around us in Nature and feel it instinctively in ourselves.  Just as the caterpillar must retreat into his cocoon for this period of quiet resting before metamorphosing and emerging as a butterfly, so we must have the patience to quietly accept this period of “non-doing” to completely move forward into whatever new wonders and adventures await us down the road.

doing nothing2

“Sometimes doing nothing is doing something very Important”.

It would be wonderful to be able to peek through the fence, so to speak, and get a sneak preview of what lies ahead.  At times we may be given gentle hints if we are extremely mindful along the way. But not always.  Patience, and Faith, once again are the things we need to pray for most during this period of quiet “being”.

As a flower peeks through the fence, we would also love a preview of what awaits us

As a flower peeks through the fence, we would also love a preview of what awaits us

The unknown always brings up fears and these also must be acknowledged and released.  It is all part of the cleansing process which is preparing us for whatever the next stage in our life holds in store for us.

May I be blessed with the Faith, Freedom from Fear and Patience to truly make the most of this beautiful resting phase.

With love light and JOY

Whoever we are, we are SPECIAL!

Cleansing and Mourning Process Gratefully Accepted

heal in your own time and your own way

I’ve been through a difficult frustrating week of what I now realize is a final cleansing and mourning process. Felt the flu coming on so attacked it full force with my ayurvedic herbal preparations. I felt no flu like symptoms per se except for weakness. So basically I didn’t really suffer much during the cleansing process but was frustrated in that I had to cancel all my plans for lots of dancing this week. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday! 😦 …but I am looking at it all compassionately and acceptingly and finally today I am beginning to feel better. But this could NOT happen until I hit rock bottom today, even cried, and eventually realized that if things had worked out differently, I would have been celebrating my ex’s birthday all throughout this weekend. Once I allowed myself to accept my feelings, to acknowledge and…
