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.

“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

Was directed to this post while reading my own random posts (which I do when guided to do so), and once again reminded of this important message (posted just 3 months ago)…and guided to repost it here as well. Would love to hear your thoughts as well. Enjoy!

Not In India

From this place of quiet contentment, this place of knowing and acceptance, the messages are always given the opportunity to find their way easily to my inner wisdom.

I have always found this clarity of vision while inIndia, but it has alluded me this year while here at home.  Channeled messages are always part of my sojourns in India, so receiving the following message early this morning, brought great comfort and joy into my life-more on this following the message:

You no longer need to strive. You have moved beyond the place of having to put so much constant effort into your continuing journey. After many years of hard work, you have earned the privilege of sitting back and enjoying the ride. You only need to allow yourself to flow, without resistance, wherever the current takes you.

If you can relax into this flow it will…

It has been much too long since I have been here, and although there have been very good reasons for my absence, I am still uncomfortable with it and so ask for your understanding.

Life has been full and challenging and surprising and beautiful this past year and I have been blessed, as always, with many wonderful gifts, including the gift of love.

Just one year ago I posted the following on Facebook (you can join me there as I frequently post “shorties” as they come to me, as well as lots of lovely photos).  I came across it today once again, and figured a yearly reminder would not be out of place, so am posting it here as well.

As always, my prayers are with all of you and as the Jewish New Year approaches, this is a good time to contemplate (and you don’t have to be Jewish to use the opportunity) where you were last year at this time, where you are today, how you feel about your “today” and how much of what you dreamed of last year you have succeeded in manifesting into reality !!

I leave you with my blessings for another wonderful year, and of course with the following food for thought:

Cultivating Faith is no different than cultivating a garden. The more time you spend on it,the more beautifully it will grow and bring you joy. You must weed it continually, and the weeds in the garden of Faith are fear and doubt. The water and fertilizer which allow it grow are prayer, meditation and…more than anything else, gratitude.

Message from My Morning Meditation – May 15, 2011

My life is a twisted turning road and I never know what awaits me around the next bend.  But I travel this road in complete Freedom from Fear for I know without a doubt, with complete Faith in God and His loving Universe, that another wonderful exciting and beautiful surprise is waiting for me once I get around the curve.

It may be a sharp and unexpected turn and I will have to navigate it carefully and slowly,  but once I get past it, a whole new and wonderful vista appears before me once again.

I am truly blessed to have found this road of liberation and joy and love.  God is the engineer and Master builder and administrator of this road, and He has graciously given me, and everyone, free access to it. We just have to be willing to take the first step into the unknown with  Freedom from Fear, and complete acceptance and Faith in what lies ahead.

When it comes to living the life of one’s dreams, there are those who think they must go it alone; that they must be the early bird, know all the right people, and succeed by the sweat of their brow – and they carry the weight of the world on their shoulders.

Then there are those who have read all the books, done all the workshops, and concluded that it’s simply a matter of surrendering to a loving, conspiring Universe so that their life might be transformed by its magic – and they silently wonder why it hasn’t.

The truth is, neither are we alone, nor is knowing about the Universe and its magic enough to manifest change. The first conclusion is as self-sabotaging as it is sad, and the second is a bit like knowing exactly where the secret treasure is buried, yet never bothering to dig for it. Instead, the trick lies in knowing the difference between what one can, should and must do, versus what one can, should and must delegate to an all wise and capable Universe. Our part is the easy part.

We need only provide the spark to light the Universe’s fire; to hoist up our sails so that they can be filled with its magical winds. Yet without offering these token efforts, without assisting in these modest ways, not only do we contradict our wish to live as fully as possible, but we slide ever further away from an infinite grace that tirelessly strives to sweep us off our feet, surround us with friends, and create the life we most want.

The above is something I read some time ago, but sorry to say, I cannot give credit to the author.  It says in very clear and precise words,  things I have been writing about here for years, and so felt it appropriate to post.

If you are reading this, and by any chance are the person who wrote this, I’d really like to give credit where credit is due….not to the thoughts but to the beautiful way in which you expressed them.

“Just for today I will experience all in complete acceptance, joy, gratitude and freedom from fear”

Every morning, during my prayer/meditation session, I repeat the 5 Reiki principles :

Just for today…

-I will not worry

-I will not get angry

-I will count my many blessings

-I will love and respect every living creature (including myself)

-I will do an honest days work (on myself)

*scroll down to the end of the post for links to further information and articles re: the above

Over the past year I have been guided during a loving channeling session, to add an additional affirmation to these:

“Just for today I will experience all in complete acceptance, joy, and freedom from fear”

It’s meaning is obvious, but powerful!

Acceptance:  knowing everything is happening for my Higher Good in the best possible way

Joy – happy that it has been sent to me , again, for my Higher Good at this time

Freedom from Fear – without fear of what it is or what it’s consequences for the future mean…in complete Faith that it is part of Divine plan and overview.

[just now, as I write, I have been instructed to add “in gratitude” to this statement. For obvious reasons as well.  I am thankful for your love and care in sending this thing to me. So the full statement , as of today, is:

“Just for today I will experience all in complete acceptance, joy, gratitude and freedom from fear”

I’ve always said this in the morning along with the 5 principles, but have recently been guided to repeat them at night as well and couldn’t understand why until just the other day.

Saying it all at the beginning of the day puts us in a place of mindfulness about everything we do during the day.  So why at night?.

Well, something happened to me a few days ago which had me doubting, worrying, fearing and feeling confused – something which hasn’t happened to me in a long time.  I could not stop wondering and contemplating and concerning myself with the reasons for this particular occurrence the entire day. I was literally driving myself crazy all day thinking about the why’s and how’s.  And then night time rolled around, and it was then that I was literally “forced” to repeat the statements before going to sleep.  And as I did, I realized that the whole day I had NOT been aware of what I was doing…falling back into “worry mode” – into concerning myself with things which I should leave to God and the Universe – into forgetting my Faith and allowing my fears to take over.  And once I realized this – I fell into a peaceful and blissful sleep and awoke KNOWING for sure that all was well and would work out exactly as suited my Higher Good – but only if I could release my own ego’s attempt to control things and “figure them out”.

-How can I do this now?

-This is not what I planned or had in mind

-Maybe I will be too tired now while doing panchakarma to take on this work

-what if I don’t do it properly because I am not prepared?

-How will I find the time

-etc., etc., etc.

These are all actually none of my concern!  If something is sent to me, it is a “done deal” (if I allow it to be), everything having been worked out completely from beginning to end in ways that I could never imagine.  My human thinking being too limited to imagine the “how’s”.

Once I removed my ego from the issue, all things just began to flow easily, allowing me to just “sit back and relax”, while the events played themselves out in their own proper time and their own proper way.

If I had not repeated the statements before going to sleep that night, I would not have caught myself and the trap I had fallen into during the day, and would have had a sleepless night for sure-perhaps even continuing to plague me the following day.

I now repeat at night as well, to take a good look at the day and my actions and reactions to events.  And in the event that I have lost my balance in any way, I can come back to center, release all that is unnecessary, and sleep calming through the night.
