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…

The More You Give the More You Get!

I posted this recently on Not In India 2012 but felt the message important enough to repost here.  Enjoy! 🙂

I have written in the past, both on this blog and on my Mindfulness Journal, about Manifesting Dreams and Creating a New Reality. Much of what we talk about, and read about these days deals with the Laws of Attraction and attracting what we want into our lives. There are some very basic techniques about how to go about doing this. You can find innumerable posts, articles, videos, books, lectures, workshops etc. regarding this whole “business”.

But one thing which is very often overlooked, or not given enough attention, is the simple idea that “like attracts like” – meaning, if you live in a mode of want, if you worry about what you don’t have, and worry about what you do have but might not have tomorrow….if you count your pennies because you are afraid you may not have enough tomorrow, if you live “frugally” to insure your having enough “when”….then you are actually defeating the purpose. The more you live in fear of not having, the more you save for a rainy day, the more you count each penny you spend, the more you are “careful” with what you have, the more you will attract more of the same into your life. You will always be afraid and probably for the reason that you don’t have enough, you will never have enough for a rainy day, you will continue counting pennies because you will never have more than pennies to count, and you will never have “more”, rather you will continue to have ‘less”.

The story below is an example of how giving freely, even if you don’t have “enough”, of giving lovingly and without fear of “not having” what you need if you’ve given to someone else, of sharing what you have with a full heart, attracts even more into your life. People who live like this, even if it seems as if they have very little, will ALWAYS have what they need, whenever they need it. I can tell you this from personal experience as well. Once I got out of the “fear” mode and moved into the “free” mode, once I began giving lovingly, to others and myself, whenever I felt like it or needed to, I began experiencing all kinds of unexpected surprises of money finding its way into my life, free vacations coming my way, strange “coincidences” and of course no longer having to worry that I don’t have, or will not have, enough.

I recently posted the following on my Facebook page:

On my way to the train station and in the blink of an eye my travel plans have changed. As always, God and the Universe are looking out for me, and I have been sent an Amtrak ticket by an angel named M. so that I don’t have to travel by local commuter train where I would save $60 or more but would have to change trains, (I am carrying all my luggage) ,wait for trains and spend more than 2 hours riding what is less than a 1 hour actual trip. I am truly blessed! 😀

The angel was my cousin who I was going to visit and she lovingly paid for my Amtrak ticket, round trip, and did so with joy and happiness. Two days ago, she took me “just for fun” to a casino near her home. I just played out the $5 I was given as an incentive by the casino, and when I finished, she took over the machine I was playing, After a couple of minutes of play, SHE WON $1000!!!!. And that is how it works!

I began writing a post early this morning, but was having diffculty putting my thoughts down “on paper”, so took a break to check my e-mails. What is written below, was lovingly sent my way by the Universe. Understandings I’ve reached over the past year but was having difficulty putting into words to pass along. To make my life easier and to help bring these new thoughts along to all of you, I was provided with the post below. I DO NOT receive regular mails from this source, so was surprised to see it, but as we all know, we are always provided with what we need when the time is right. A wonderful New Year to all of you!

The physical world around us may feel intense and chaotic at times as life itself unfolds. What seemed impossible, what seemed unexpected, becomes miraculous. The key to walking through all is to remain fearless. Being fearless does not mean there is no fear; it means walking with unconditional love and acceptance calmly and peacefully in spite of fear.

Agitation arises, conflicts occur, however if we remain steadfast in our spirit truth we will not be swayed from the perpetual peace within us. Remember too that when we do invariably find ourselves in conflict, if we cooperate and co-create solutions rather than blame, peace and harmony will return quickly.

Anytime one expands and explores, it is unfamiliar, a new beginning, a new chapter full of the unknown. We must resist the ego’s desire to revert into the known and experience the expansion fully. If we allow the experience of expansion, we transform into a beautiful new reality. With all shifts, be it a small behavior or a critical mass shift in awareness, the appearance will always be that of chaos and destruction. The only way to make room for new is to let go of the old. The stabilization of reality comes from this transformation process. Expansion requires us to be patient and unconditionally loving and accepting always. Quick reaction rather than contemplative movement will create further imbalance within us. When we trust our own inner spiritual guidance and remain open to the energy of unconditional love and acceptance, we will find it permeates all things in our reality. It just takes time.

This expansion is not only for our personal awareness and for growth; the collective energy is shifting the global awareness and growth. The world is birthing a new reality just as we are. Each one of us must answer the call for ourselves. Each person’s spiritual truth must be declared with conviction. Our active participation is vital for our new reality to finish its birthing process.

As we move into this New Year, the temptation to retract and hide will pulsate strongly to constrain the masses in fear. While many have cut the constraints that bind, if we do not actively participate in the new higher frequency energies, the constraints will return. Active participation does not mean to jump off into the unknown, it means to consciously take one step at a time, always staying in the moment. We must remain balanced in all that we do. Self-discipline and self-mastery are vital to understanding the expansive nature of a new reality. Otherwise, we may become lost in the confusion and chaos. Clarity always comes from within.
The mindful contemplation of all things – this is where the active participation is birthed. When we act from this stillness, our spirit is guided by our truth.

Nothing will be forced, manipulated or cracked. It is a soft nudging, a gentle flow of energy as though we are floating down the stream of energy. Yes, there may appear to be rapids from the chaos. There may appear to be obstacles and rocks in our path, yet, if we will still our mind, we will find our spirit truth and return to the flow.

We must remain present in the moment, contemplate the sacredness of life, and maintain our balance within. It is within this call that we will find the freedom of life, the opportunities for expansion, and the miracles of spiritual growth.

May you have a blessed and expansive New Year and may there be peace in your body, mind and spirit!

Peace, Love and Sacred Journey,

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.

The Power of our positive thoughts and feelings.

From a short video I recently received on Facebook…the words are insightful and important, and even more information is just waiting behind them for further  contemplation and discussion. (Click on the link above to view the video).  It contains a powerful reminder of things we should be aware of, mindful of, at all times.

You are a vibrational and energy being that came to this reality in a physical form; this energy stems from The Source that created your body. You deactivate your divine manifestation when you doubt. The Source can only respond to a Pure and Coherent desire not tainted by doubt and contradiction. Do you know that you create by your thoughts and manifest by your emotions and feelings. There is an inner energy; human emotions have the ability to change the shape of the DNA. Positive emotions are hundred times more powerful than negative emotions. The happier you are the more DNA becomes relaxed and stronger. Your thoughts impact water as well. Always send positive thoughts and bless the water you drink. Let your state of being be love and joy. Be centered in your heart, always vibrate and practice these spiritual fruits: first Forgiveness, Gratitude, Appreciation, Happiness, Bliss ; all positive feelings of Kindness, Compassion, Love, Joy, Peace and Harmony.

With Love Light and JOY

Assistance Along the Journey versus Going It Alone-Powerful Message in a Dream

“When from our better selves we have too long been parted…how gracious, how benign is solitude”

The above is a quote by Wordsworth which I read last night in a book I am reading .  I had actually woken in the middle of night, unable to fall back to sleep.  When this happens to me, I don’t fight it, and usually get up to read until I feel sleepy again.  This quote was used in the book, and after reading it, DID go back to sleep, only to find myself in the following dream, which kept recurring until I woke up just now, several hours later.

The dream:

Riding along in a bus and knowing where I have to go.  The bus is going through a familiar area and I know where he must turn to get me to where I have to go (a place called givat Chen which in Hebrew means, loosely translated: “charming hill”).  As he comes to the corner where he must turn right to get me there, I get up to get ready to get off, but then he passes that corner and keeps going straight.  I KNEW I should have rang the buzzer and gotten off right away to continue the short journey to my desired place alone, but my mind told me  “Sit down and wait.  Perhaps he knows an easier way of getting there.  Let him continue to take you”.  As he drove further and further away from my desired location, I began to realize that something was wrong, but hesitated to question him, not wanting to bother him, or the other passengers.  I eventually found myself so far from where I needed to be, that I DID go and speak to him, only to be told that he has no idea where the place is I am talking about, and it was never part of the route.  I became flustered, and angry and frustrated and began shouting and at one point he yelled back at me but the other passengers just asked me to be quiet so that he could concentrate on his job of getting THEM to their desired destinations, and telling me I could not blame him for my not paying attention and knowing when to get off.

– just as I sat down on the bus and realized I would have to find my own way back, no matter how difficult it was, no matter how lost I was or no matter how far away I now was from my desired destination…I woke up!

There are times when  we all need assistance.  When we are so far away from the place we know we want to be, that we need help getting closer to that path along the journey.

It may be from a teacher, guru, healer, doctor, even friend, relative or relationship.  When you find the assistance you need, it is a wonderful blessing and should be accepted with gratitude and joy. But you must also know when you have been taken as close to your own path as possible by another person…when you see you have come as far as you can with assistance, and then don’t be afraid to ‘get off”…don’t hesitate or you will be taken very far astray.  You can always return to the place you wanted to be originally, but it will then take that much longer and require that much more effort and energy .

Knowing your own strength and trusting your own instincts will always keep you as close as possible to your own truth…assistance is needed at times along the way…no one can do it all by themselves,  but we must also be alert at all times to the signs that we have gone as far as we can with the help of someone else and know when to once again go it alone.

Know which stop on the bus route is as close to your destination as the bus is going to get you and GET OFF.  Walk the rest of the way on your own.  Don’t hesitate-when you know for sure that this is the place, don’t think that perhaps there is a shorter or easier route.  Let your own knowing guide you from there…And if you do NOT listen to your own inner voice, never blame someone else for taking you astray!!
