Back to Reality and Dealing with Negative Feelings

Anger, frustration, fear, worry – they do come – we are only human. The question is what to do with these feelings when they arise. This is a question I was confronted with just a couple of days ago, just one month after coming home from India. After many months of being relatively free of negative feelings, I found myself swamped in them after spending several frustrating hours dealing with insurance companies regarding a claim following someone running into my car from behind while my daughter was driving. This happened a couple of months ago while I was in India, and until now the money has not been paid to me to cover the repairs. I found myself in an extremely difficult place – with feelings that I hadn’t experienced for a long time – and was at a loss about what to do regarding my reaction to the situation. Remember, we are always responsible for the way we feel and so these feelings of anger, frustration, fear and worry were not what was upsetting me, but the fact that I allowed myself to react in a way which allowed these feelings to arise in the first place.

So again…what to do? Well, it took me awhile, but I realized that first of all, the feelings must be validated, allowed to BE, and not buried. Allow them their own freedom to exist – find out where they are coming from and then move past them back to the balanced place. If doing this involves a day or two of sleeping a lot, or playing computer games, of not meditating and doing yoga, don’t beat myself up about it. Allow myself the luxury of succumbing once in awhile. The downs only make the highs easier relish, appreciate and be grateful for!

The relapses into bad times have a place in our lives and as such, are just as much a blessing as the so-called “good” stuff. In the end, EVERYTHING is good, and FOR our own Higher Good. So once again I give thanks to God and the loving Universe for my many blessings, even when it takes me awhile to become aware of them.

Living in India 2009– How a Dream Becomes a Reality

So many people have asked me how I have managed to arrange my life so that I can spend 6 months a year in India, that I’ve decided to write about it as there hopefully are lessons for others to learn from this as well.

I have done some thinking about the whole concept of turning dreams into reality. It is a fairly simple concept actually, but seeing it truly work is the amazing part. When we have a focused intention and can visualize it, and then release it completely to God and the Universe, our new reality begins to be created for us. The catch here is that we must TOTALLY release it, in complete Faith, knowing that it will be taken care of. The “how’s” are well beyond our human capabilities to imagine.

If we continue to “second-guess” the wisdom of the Universe, or mix fear into the equation, we sabotage the final outcome.

Asking each day for the best possible outcome to our prayers, our dreams, for our Higher Good and the Higher Good of all who come in contact with us, on all levels – asking for openness to accept and embrace ALL that comes our way in COMPLETE FREEDOM FROM FEAR – asking for the wisdom to “hear” all the messages we receive – is all we need to do to insure the successful manifestation of our dreams into reality.

In 2001, at the age of 54, when I quit my high paying job in hi-tech (more…)
