December 20, 2009 – Long Time in Getting this Written

The first book I read in India this year was: The Bridge Across Forever – a love story written by Richard Bach, the author of Jonathan Livingston Seagull (which I never read). The story is described as follows on the back of the book: “If you’ve ever felt alone in a world of strangers, missing someone you’ve never met, you’ll find a message from your love in THE BRIDGE ACROSS FOREVER”. I found this book the first day I went down to the bookshop, and having nothing else to read, picked it up eagerly, but not expecting anything more than a soppy love story (which I admit that I love).
I had just about begun the book when the messages began coming to me, as if the book were speaking directly to me, on a personal level. It is only now, after understanding with crystal clarity where this was all leading, that I am finally getting around to post this, but the thoughts were put down on paper over 2 months ago. This was the beginning of (more…)

December 17, 2009 – Angel Medicine, Crystal-Clear Intentions About my Soulmate, Sunlight and Messages

I haven’t written in quite some time as my efforts have been going into my India Journal, which you might want to check out at:

Reading the Angel Medicine book is proving to be a very powerful awakening for one of many things that I know deep inside but never connected with previously. In addition, I am receiving strong confirmations for my routine daily practices and healing “techniques” which I have come to practice by following guidance from my guides, angels and ascended masters over the years.
The more I am cleansed by the panchakarma, the more room there is for personal growth on deeper levels than ever before.
The book has written about the effects of sunlight and this connects up with what I learned so many years ago in Soul Love…of the sun being the soul of the universe and the immense power of sunlight in helping us connect, and stay connected with our soul’s needs. It also speaks of the importance for (more…)

Sometimes you have to get lost to find your way.

I went to sleep last night with a general feeling of being at “loose ends” and with the earlier feelings of anger, frustration, fear and worry and not being able to wholly reconcile them as being related to dealings with the insurance companies. So before going to sleep I asked for direction and purpose – I have not written for a very long time and feeling the need to “find my way” again. I woke at 5 AM with the vivid scenes from a dream still in my head, and realized that the dream, the book I began reading 2 days ago, and the new understandings written about regarding my feelings and reactions in my earlier post of today, are all connected to the quote from the book by Cecelia Ahern in my last post which deals with getting lost in order to be found. Nothing in this life is by chance, but putting it all together into a big picture, is not always easy.

In the dream I was driving my car (which I also sold TODAY – once I released my fear of NOT being able to sell it!), and the road was undergoing major construction. I was so busy watching the messed up road in order to avoid obstacles, paying attention to what was wrong and focusing all my attention on the technical driving, that I did not really notice where I was going and when I finally did, I was completely lost and very far from the place I had intended to arrive at when I began my journey.

I thought about this as I came fully awake, and realized this was not necessarily a bad thing that had happened in the dream. It also is directly related to the book I am now reading: “Three Cups of Tea” by Greg Mortenson (one man’s mission to promote peace…one school at a time), as well as the quote in this recent post about getting lost:
(click here to follow link) LOST AND FOUND

In the beginning of the book, Mortenson describes his being so engrossed in the technicalities of his failed attempt to reach the summit of K2 – second highest peak in the world – that he never saw the truely amazing beauty of the landscape. Only after getting lost and almost dying did he take the time to see the big picture, and this getting lost and allowing himself to be “found” in an entirely unexpected place is what lead him to find his true life’s purpose.

So, when things seem to be going wrong, when it seems that obstacle after obstacle is blocking your chosen path, perhaps it is time to allow yourself to “get lost”, to relax into the confusion, and eventually find yourself moving along freely and joyfully on an entirely different path than you originally planned to follow. Life is full of miracles if we just let them happen!

Below a few favorite quotes related to the above:


In dreams and in love there are no impossibilities.
– Janos Arany

“If you take your eyes off your goals,
all you see are obstacles.”

Don’t wait for your ship to come in. Row out to meet it.

There ain’t no cloud so thick that the sun ain’t shinin’ on t’other side.
– Rattlesnake, an 1870s mountain man

Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.
– Will Rogers

One of the secrets of life is to make stepping-stones out of stumbling blocks.
– Jack Penn

thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyselfleviticus 19:18

If we look at this, as it is worded in the fourth of the Reiki Principles, it appears to be fairly straightforward. It is pretty obvious to us that one of the most important things in this world is to love and respect others, show compassion and tolerance, patience and understanding etc. We also know that we must be kind to EVERY living being and this would of course include animals, insects, plants etc., etc.

The original wording of the principle as stated by Dr. Usui is slightly different, but the message is more easily understood with the above paraphrase which I prefer using in my Reiki classes and in my own daily meditation practice.

And the profoundness of the principle, if we truly think about it, opens the door to an entirely new way of perceiving the ups and downs of our lives, of relating to instances where we feel we have been wronged by someone, or taken advantage of, even purposely hurt or embarrassed, or injured in any way. Of relating to the different people who come into our lives and the way we accept and embrace all that is sent our way by God and the Universe.

In addition, if we add just two small words to the above principle, it changes the impact and intent even more deeply. Just for Today I will Love and Respect Every Living Creature…INCLUDING MYSELF!! If we do not truly love ourselves, how can we possibly love and respect our neighbor??

I will try and give insights into the following two questions (more…)
