What you are is the unlimited, which is not susceptible to the senses. By limiting yourself to the body you have closed yourself to the unlimited …Lessons from Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj #13
Here’s the audio of my talk:
Hi, I would love to speak with you now about an exercise that we did today at our Reiki graduation ceremony. And I think this exercise within a group in particular, a small group would be really good to do especially to set initial intentions and to ground each participant and to help them connect with each other. You may want to do it at the end of a first session or the beginning of a second or third session especially if you have sensed there to be some disturbance in the group dynamics or the energy of the group. And essentially what it amounts to is each person arranges their body (to point their solar plexus towards the person they are speaking to), and in particular, their eyes to look at each person in the group one at a time and then simply state the other person’s name.
For example, I’ll say XYZ is the name of the other person, so you would say “XYZ, I experience you (or the universe experiences you) as ABCDEFG type of person meaning you can use a couple of words or a couple of sentences, but it shouldn’t be any more than a couple of minutes for you to describe each person. You might say things like, “Carol, I experience you (or the universe experiences you) as a loving, tender hearted, caring, nurturing person. You put yourself out there for everybody around you. You give so much from your heart, and you may even over get to the point of diminishing your own self. But you are wise enough to know you can always refill your empty cup. I love you. Thank you. And that’s that’s really it.
You know, you’re giving people the opportunity to understand you’ve heard them. You’ve seen them. You’ve experienced them. And I love this practice. I love the practice of this exercise because it helps each of us connect better with each other, heal any perceived grievances we may have had or held against each other. It really opens our hearts and lets each other appreciate and tune into each other’s energy and realize that we’re not alone. That others see us even if they’ve only known as for a short time.
Like I said, you may use this activity at the end of the session when you’ve only had a couple of hours together participating in a group. I would think that it might be fun in the beginning just to keep it very short and tell each other a perception that they have upon meeting because we all know that.
Initially, when we meet people within the first seven to 30 seconds, we form an opinion of them. And then later when we do this exercise again, after the first session or second session we’ve had a few hours together (if somebody’s taking notes of this or you’re writing these these perceptions down), you can look back and see how much your perception has changed of that person or how in tune you were to pick up on who that person really is. Maybe you’re seeing that person’s heart or their higher self and you’re getting in touch and you’re getting in tune and then therefore this is validating your intuitive awareness.
So, try that exercise and let me know what you think of it and how it works for you. We just did it at our Reiki II level graduation ceremony (and I can tell you that even during the Reiki II weekend class participation, we had some energy disturbances between a couple of the participants) and I was so utterly amazed and impressed when each of those people got to express to each other in our group setting, how they experienced the other person because it was totally positive! There was no negativity. When another participant got their opportunity to share actually said, “I’m not gonna pull any punches and I’m gonna be brutally honest…” and I thought, “Oh gosh, here it comes.” And I didn’t think that particular person had an issue with anyone else. So, when that person got a chance to speak to the other, she let it all hang out and of course it was all worded quite eloquently and was very caring. However, when I heard the words ‘brutally honest’ I thought here comes the negativity. How could this be negative because I thought these two folks got along famously. Well, they did but it was just again, bringing back to my consciousness, how the words that we choose, can even kind of set us up for a different expectation. I thought the next words out of her mouth was gonna be something negative after she said, “I want to cut to the chase and be brutally honest,” right? Maybe just the use of the word brutal especially in this loving, nurturing type of environment and the circle we’ve built over several weeks together. I wasn’t expecting THAT word. I think it was kind of jolting to me. Right?
But this is why I love doing WordPlay. This is why I love facilitating especially small groups, four to eight people, because I think you can really build lasting friendships and really bond with one another. You can really find out a lot about yourself too, because I found myself when I was not forced but when I was prodded if you will (by means of this exercise), to give my opinion of my experience of another human being. I found I immediately tuned in to my pure essence my higher being, God, Omniscience, Source. You know, I immediately tuned in. I immediately got the dowsing rods kind of feedback in my body of the Yes answers every time I spoke something to someone (as I was telling the truth of course) through the whole process. Every time I spoke to the person I felt GodBumps! I felt the GodBumps sensation in my thighs, which is my Yes answer. And now after Reiki level II, I know when I feel God bumps above the waist (in my torso and arms) that is my No answer, as it’s a very strong sensation (meaning the answer No is quite firm). A No answer like this is both inside me and coming to me from The Field, with the stronger the sensation.
This is akin to one looking at the different hues and shades of a certain color. When a color is really bright, that’s the equivalent of when I get a really strong sensation. Similarly, when the color is a pastel color that’s equal to when I feel the slight subtle GodBumps sensation. So the stronger sensation is my Yes answer (or agreement from the Universe on whatever is being discussed), and the more less sensation of GodBumps above the waist is for when I get firm No answer from the Universe.
I’ve learned that through Reiki II for myself personally. I’ve also learned I’m a human dowsing rod and that was validated during the instruction of how to properly use the dowsing rods (as I’d never been instructed how to use them properly before). I’d had a cheaper pair before and I knew they worked to show me where the energy was but I never used them for any specific purpose. I didn’t know I could use them to obtain a yes or no answer nor how to hold them properly with my elbows close against my body. So now, I love the dowsing rods.
I mostly focus on tools, techniques, tips we can ALL use that will aid us in our development mentally calming the mind, growing spiritually, and healing physically. I look for things that we don’t involve external tools. If we’re laying in a hospital bed and we’re near coma we can do these things. That’s the kind of medicine I’m looking for and is what holistic health means to me–holistic medicine. Things you can do on your own, within and of yourself. And you’re a creator. You need no other external tools or external medicines, and so on and so forth. Your breath, your energy, the feeling of your own body (acupressure and reflexology for example), the sensing, the tuning in the going within the meditation, the prayer, the mental attitude, the self talk, the self awareness, the awareness of your conscious thoughts, all of that’s holistic medicine to me. And with that, I send you my love and blessings. Many blessings to you in all ways. We are in this journey together at this time. While I’m breathing and I’m this side of the dirt, I’m alive. And even once I transition whenever that shall occur. I want you to know I’m always there for you. Your loving Spiral Sister in Christ Jesus’ name, Amen. Awoman. Namaste. OM
Many blessings to you in ALL ways. Always.
Omniscience IS IN Everything. Go about your day with God knowing Omniscience is always with you. You are never alone. You are never alone.

“I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” Jesus the Christ Choose any …Spiritual Teachings #68
Listen to the raw talk here:
I don’t think I’ve ever described it this way quite this way before. But after leaving on my second (of a two day) class for Level II Reiki, I feel that I’m only speaking (in all of my writings and talks) to people who ultimately feel a responsibility within themselves to grow their consciousness, to grow their being and connect with (and you can call this any name you would like but it’s a another version of you in essence). It may be your inner child, it may be your Higher Self it may be God, Creator, Divine, Source Energy, the Unified Field, The Field, fractal universe, multiverse, The Force, or The Energy. Omniscience is the word I prefer because it definitely explains how God is Everywhere. All at once. And sees ALL. Omniscience hears ALL frequencies on and in The Field. And creates all and is really the underpinning for everything that exists in the universe, and, in particular, each of us.
So, I’m very grateful for you and glad you’re getting something from this blog. I do believe that it’s for all “believers.” Because if you’re a person who only believes that you are only the body you reside in currently, that you’ve never lived before, as in your consciousness has never existed anywhere else in the universe before, and you don’t believe your consciousness is going to exist anywhere after you leave this body (in other words, you don’t believe YOU go anywhere after this body dies), you are not the person I’m writing this blog for. You’re not the person I’m speaking to right now (for those listening to the audio).
The person that I’m speaking to right now has some belief that they have a soul and a spirit and that they are not this body, this body is a temporary sheath, a meat-suit a spacesuit, a temporary asset that you own. And this is why when Jesus walked the planet 2000 years ago, he said, let thine eye be single. You’re in the world, not of the world. And you have a responsibility to take care of and guard your body Temple. I’m loosely paraphrasing to give you an example that he was teaching the temporary-ness or temporal-ness of this body, and yes, he could bring a dead body to life. Yes, he could. lay hands on someone, put mud on someone’s eye to make the blind see, the lame walk etc. We can do all these things as well. He said we would.
We have the tools available to us. We have the resources available to us. Either surgically, medically, or spiritually psychically (as in psychic surgery cases and things of that nature), as well as Reiki, as well as laying on of hands prayer work and such. Your intention, visualization, speaking words of health, light, love, growth, opportunity, and helping people to see a different version of their future so that they are healthier and living a more vibrant life. Those are all ways that we can affect one another because We Are All Connected.
I see the divine as Omniscience because God is the underlying Omniscient Force that envelops everything in the universe and is the blueprint–the structure.
When I meditate, I see the underpinning framework the Reiki symbols hang on. The world’s languages hang on this framework, the light languages and the words we think and speak. They (the words with their intended meanings) penetrate and hang on this framework. And when we die in the physical body, our consciousness goes into the Grand Beyond because the Grand Beyond is this framework. And we can go through it as well as hang on to it. Those of us who believe Jesus Christ is our personal Savior. We have a relationship with Him. We have a kinship, we have an acknowledgement from Him. We have a vow with Him. We have a promise from him, that He will be there to deliver us from any “evil,” which in my estimation is a “misstep.” We have simply missed the mark. We have made a misstep (or some say “mistake”). Jesus will be there on the Other Side to course correct for us (His believers and followers). But if we don’t believe in Jesus, and this is where I am different than 99% of the people who talk about religion and spirituality, WE are simply hanging onto other branches. In the tree, if you look at a Banyan tree (it’s a prime example of what I see as the best representation of this principle). The Yew tree as well, is a prime example. The trunk of the Yew is made up from multiple branches, limbs, vines and so forth that wrap around and create a stronger trunk. All the branches wind around to form and strengthen the tree trunk. Branches spiral, twist, and wrap around each other. And so the tree itself, the base of the Yew tree is the combination of all of its branches.
Now why is this important? Because every faith and even if you aren’t a part of an organized Faith structure, you are a branch or vine and you are enveloped in the wrapping of this spiritual tree. So, if you can picture one single tree made of hundreds of branches or even thousands of branches, limbs, and vines–they are ALL connected. This is why the various paths lead to one place. There is an Above and there is a Below. You can reach both through any Faith branch. If you will. And if you are the lone person who believes in XYZ I still believe you can be enveloped by that tree (Omniscience) and be absorbed into that tree, either through one of the main branches or through a vine, or weed! Let’s say if we’re using that tree, Yew tree or Banyan tree as the example, it’s not impossible for a branch to be cast off.
But again, that involves choice. The creators choice and your choice. If you want to be enveloped in a part of that tree, whichever path you’ve chosen will get you there. Some paths may be more, may be shorter, or may be longer. Some paths may be more crooked and have more angles and you may look at those challenges as missteps, but eventually you will be welcomed into the fullness of that tree and it will be explained (to you).
Answers may come after you’ve crossed over or transitioned into another consciousness. Again, (this is all larger) than Heaven and Hell. I see life as the growth of your consciousness and once you cross over, you’re going to continue growing! You may continue as a spark of divine consciousness. You may come back as a human. You may come back in another life form somewhere else on another realm. You may just hang on to a frequency in the Field. There’s any number of ways that you could continue to grow your consciousness and for those who are interested in reading more about that or studying more about that or hearing more about that I highly recommend the Institute of Noetic science (IONS). I also highly recommend the Monroe Institute. If you know of any other scientific exploration or scientifically backed exploration I would certainly be open to hearing about those communities in the comments section below this article.
Thank you. God bless you. God bless the universe. And the world. My heart is so open. And I see myself as a porous vessel. A vessel that longs for connection that longs for peace and unity, but I also understand that the fire can burn off chaff from the wheat. I understand the fire can purify. And I understand fire helps us destroy the things in our life that are no longer needed as we continue our track to improve and grow our consciousness. And with that said, Nothing is ever wrong. Everything Resolves to Gratitude. We grow through the dirt even when it’s unpleasant and we don’t consciously ask for it. But it’s necessary because we’re on this journey and our soul and spirit knows we need the growth. We have dirt in our lives that may be painful, messy, ugly, or horrible. But we’re on a mission. We’re on a journey and growth is our forward motion progress. With love, Sheila Murrey and… ?
Many blessings to you in ALL ways. Always.
Omniscience IS IN Everything. Go about your day with God knowing Omniscience is always with you. You are never alone. You are never alone.

Silver Birth was a spirit guide who spoke through Maurice Barbanellthe real you cannot die
Silver Birth was a spirit guide who spoke through Maurice Barbanellthat is not you
Two days after hurricane Ian ripped through Florida, making landfall about 35 miles south of where we live, my husband, Richard, suffered a stroke.
I have no pictures to show you of what the stroke did to his brain stem, but I have seen the evidence of how it has impacted his speech and physical abilities like walking and playing guitar.
We understand the brain is like a sponge for three months, ninety days, post stroke, so now is the time for Richard to push himself a bit to encourage neural plasticity to relearn things and create new neural connections. It seems all my study into how the brain works (I’d been studying it for other reasons than to rebound from a stroke), are helping us through this time. My monthly calls with Dr. Bruce Lipton and listening to the recordings in his online forum have given me hope.
We’re grateful to meet a general practitioner medical doctor near us, who also happens to be a guitarist songwriter, has helped us understand the medications a bit more too. He can communicate with Richard and connect with him on multiple levels, which is very reassuring.
And of course Richard’s sister, Rose, and her husband, Alan were our biggest supporters throughout this time, actually driving from Kentucky to help–her decades as an ER nurse and personal experience were invaluable to us. We still incorporate things we learned from them as we live our “new normal” each day.
Emotions have run high during the nine days Richard spent in the hospital (yes, some are symptoms post stroke), as well as during his rehab and recovery at home. Synchronicities hit us when we listened to a song he’d finished and received back from our Nashville, Tennessee studio just prior to this event happening.
We are reprioritizing
We’re now, actually living the concept of “go where you are celebrated, not just tolerated.” We’ll be moving to a new area when our lease is up in Bradenton, as #1 we don’t want to live near the coast anymore, and #2 none of our friends from this area have shown up in person to help us. I know that sounds negative, but I don’t intend it to be negative as in bad, simply that now that we know this, we can move to a northern area of Florida without any guilt or feelings about missing them.
I had more friends in the St. Petersburg, Florida area and points north anyway, and living somewhere between Ocala and Brooksville should work out better for us to seem them whenever we can. It seems to me that people who live north of the Skyway Bridge do not want to travel south of it and drive across it very often. And of course in general, many in my circle have not been venturing out nearly as much after March 2022 when C*VID became a thing.
What we’re improving upon
We’re focused on learning new ways to cook and eat. New ways to save money. New activities to improve our physical bodies, such as moving more, walking, working out with our Yamuna balls and other rehab type gym equipment, and taking more time to sit together and hold hands. And I am getting certified in Reiki again and practicing more self care and in turn, practicing Reiki on Richard each day. And I am finding blessings in ALL of those things.
I thought this would be a short post, but want to thank a few people! ❤️😉
Thank YOU, Victoria Stitzer (and our beautiful Reiki circle practitioners and attendees) for sharing and teaching profound Reiki concepts and practical application. https://transformvegas.com
Thank YOU so much Beaird Studios! https://www.beairdmusicgroup.com
Thank YOU family and friends for gifts, calls, Facebook shares (of our story and music), as well as warm thoughts, prayers, holistic bio healing sessions, and sending loving Reiki Energy.
I have a new book coming out SOON! Stay tuned.
I have a passion for WORDS and Connecting people. In particular, I love speaking and writing about spiritual and consciousness raising topics, holistic wellness and simple healthy living. I am empathic, intuitive, compassionate, and kind, with a keen and unified wisdom about life.
I’m an Amazon bestselling author of two co-authored books: “Transform Your Life Book 2 Inspirational Stories and Expert Advice” and “Energy of Receiving”, available on Amazon. Plus, I’ve written a health book (in the making for 13 years), Take It Upon Yourself to Live a Wholly Vibrant Life, that’s available here.
OBSERVATIONS ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Conversations surrounding emotional balance, moral ambiguities, and deep spiritual truths (such as We Are All Connected, and Put Your Hands Together When You Pray), are what Sheila is most passionate about.
Sheila feels a profound empathic Connection with people and what they’re going through by merely sharing her own truth, speaking freely about her personal struggles, and shares authentically about the challenges she continues to overcome. Sheila strives to ease lonelines, strengthen the will of those exiting toxic relationships, remind us all that we are stronger than we think we are, and that eventually, Everything Resolves to Gratitude.
Be who your soul beckons you to be.

Good day to you, friends of the Laidback Gardener, This is Mathieu Hodgson, son of Larry Hodgson. On Wednesday October 26th, 2022, Larry Hodgson left…The Laidback Gardener Is No More
It is wonderful to be with you. I’m humbly honored to serve. I go to a Reiki circle in Bradenton, Florida every other Tuesday night. Because even though I may not always feel the energy in my hands, I’m practicing. I’m practicing being a vessel. And I love the connections I’ve made there. (I’m going for another Reiki certification Oct. 23 and 24, 2022 and another weekend in November as well.)
You know doctors are only practicing medicine. And that’s an important point. Let’s say that again. doctors, medical doctors are only practicing medicine. Just remember that keep that in mind the next time you go.
I wonder if my dentists whom I’ve been to in the past are only practicing as well? It certainly seems like they try out new thing because people every so often, like my friend who had five back surgeries and six years, the surgeon she went to, apparently is still practicing even though he’s the head or chief blah, blah, blah, of surgery in one of the best hospitals in the country!
So, it seems that people just keep promoting people. You keep standing on great shoulders and rising, but you’re always still practicing no matter how high in in a clinical setting you go or even in higher education, you know, the faculty. I mean, they don’t just reach some pinnacle and then “know it all.” They don’t just know something and then teach it forever. They’re always learning, so I guess that means they’re always practicing as well.
At any rate to get back from that spiral, rabbit hole of the thought. In my Reiki circles, I’m always practicing energy. I’m practicing energy medicine or energy healing. And I’m just the vessel it’s not me, you know, and I’ve had that experience before and I’ve talked about that publicly. It’s not about me, I could walk into a room and talk with 10 or 20 people and never tell them my name because it is not about me, this person who’s been named, right. It’s my energy, my aura, my presence, my awareness.
When I make a turn, and I drive down the street and then I have a thought drop in that I’m gonna see an open house sign. And I have time my schedule to stop if I choose to. What do you think that is? A few minutes ago that happened to me. And so after I ran my errand on my way back home, I decided to turn and follow the street sign that said open house, and I went down another street not far. It was actually the first house as I made the turn. And it was indeed an open house with Exit Realty and it had a four digit house number 3558 or something like that. I don’t want a house anyway. And if I did get a house, I’d want us very small house. And then my next thought was, the price is probably too high in Sarasota. It’s gonna be at least $300,000 And I’m not gonna buy a $300,000 house. So I didn’t stop. I thought I will look at the house. I’ll look it up on the Exit Realty website later that MLS or Zillow or something, but that’s kind of how this works for me. I’m driving down the road and I’m sort of in this meditative state where there’s nothing being asked of me. I’m just present. I’m aware I’m an open channel, if you will. I’m an open vessel for energy to come in, sit and then flow out and I do practice, and practice some more.
I’ve recently become aware I need to take that defensive driving mentality and apply that to other things in life, just like my anxiety levels or anxious thought levels, when I get anxious. I think I’m going to be asked to do something at work I don’t know how to do, or don’t want to do, or don’t like to do, and I start feeling those little tiny feelings of anxiety well up inside. I can apply the defensive driving attitude to that and say, you know, I don’t have to feel these anxious feelings. I don’t have to think these anxious thoughts. I can get up I can walk to the kitchen, I can get some water, I can wash dishes, I can make something to eat, put something on the stove to cook on low, that kind of thing. And then I can go back to work and one step at a time. One activity one action at a time until the task is done. I don’t have to sit in that anxiety.
I can tap on my body on myself. I usually tap around my collarbone Okay, the K37 point works. I can do my breathing. And now with WildFit. I’m doing the 5-5-5-5 breathing they teach and allowing that force of nature, even the 4-4-4 breath or 5-7-8 works too. I’ve decided I’m going to try to check out something new here. So on my way home, I’m going to make another new planned stop down the street called, Village of the Arts.
But I just wanted to really get that thought out there that medical doctors are just practicing. My dad used to say they bury their mistakes. Haha. Thank you for dropping that one. And just because my hands don’t get hot when I practice breaking, I’m simply continuing to go and I’m continuing to flow the energy. I’m a slow FLOW-er. I’m a flow-er of energy. And that’s really all I am right now. I’m flowing energy. As I feel it. I’m letting it flow through me as if and as it comes through my hands. I’m trusting and I have faith that it is and I do some movements that I’ve learned and practiced and sometimes just intuitively come to me to help him ever I am performing Reiki on.
One last thought when I hit the button to start transcribing this, I had a thought about if we all flow energy, if we all are present, why do we need priests? Why do we need pastors? And how many people sit in their depression? Sit in their loneliness or committed suicide? And the Pope, the priest, the pastor, they’re not there. They’re not there. So, why do we have these people?
Well, they’re an accumulation or like I said earlier, they’re stacked upon stack upon stack. There are people that are standing on other people’s shoulders and they reach something and go get to where they are. But are they any better than any of the rest of us? Do I really need them? My conclusion is no. We don’t. And I’ve even went so far as to call for the dismantling of churches, which has gotten me into a bit of trouble and have some friends and family members have unfollowed or blocked me on social media. So be it.
I just don’t believe in continuing to support religious institutions that are culpable of many ills, abuses, and wars. I mean, we’ve had the Protestants and Catholics fighting and killing each other in Ireland. They’re both supposedly Christian. Why in the world would they be killing each other? Why? Over a dogma! Over a way, a method of doing something! Killing each other over how they choose to practice and preach the gospel, or of not spreading the gospel? You know, I mean, it just seems to me to be a bit ridiculous.
So no, I don’t think we need these kinds of organizations. If you want to use the church because it makes you feel better you want to go assemble together, because it makes you FEEL stronger. Okay. You feel the churches are there in times of crisis, and you’ll actually go and use them. You’ll actually allow that community to support you and to correct you. And offer you guidance solutions, potential new ideas and open expand your awareness, expand your consciousness, provide limitless potentials, opportunities, possibilities, and that’s great. If indeed that helps strengthen you, okay. But I think you’re stronger than that as you always have God’s Omniscience Spirit within you. Please don’t deny the Power of God within you.

All right, here we go. There are many topics that we could discuss. There are many topics indeed. We could discuss my new book, Blue Eyes, which is a collection or diary of messages from the Grand beyond. Messages from my ethereal sister, Christina. Messages to bring hope and uplift, ease loneliness is depression or depressive thoughts. Lots we could talk about, in spiritual journeying to find out who we are, who our soul is, and then we can talk about religion and we can talk about the Queen’s passing. (I didn’t want to do this right at the time of her passing out of respect).
I have a lot of English ancestry. So, the Queen’s passing is somewhat of a titillating subject for me, as my daughter asked me (when it happened), “What do you think about the Queen’s passing”? And I said, “Well, my first thought was that ding dong, the witch is dead.” Okay, I’m just being honest. In my head I heard the accompanying Wizard of Oz song.
That was my first thought probably because my mom would have been very happy as she waited YEARS for that woman to die. She really had NO love for her. My mom was very distraught over the situation with Princess Di, Diana, Princess of Wales. My mom really believed that we had Welsh ancestry. And so, she followed closely the life of Princess Diana from the time she learned Di would marry Prince Charles. As an aside or spiral thought, I cannot believe that we’re going to have a king Chuck now. Sounds like a slab of beef. But anyway, my mom would have been very happy to know that the Queen finally left this earth. I hope that my mom has a chance on the other side in the Grand Beyond to speak with the Queen. But when I told my husband he remarked they won’t be in the same place. I guess that tells you his feelings too. Not that the Queen didn’t have some redeeming qualities. I’m sure! Like her learning how to be a truck driver. And a mechanic when she was a teenager to give her a little taste of how the little people live.
I know I sound bitter. But as I told my daughter when I listened to Piers Morgan have his little spiel about Queen Elizabeth II. He said something that got under my skin a bit. He used the words that she wasn’t in it for herself. Well, Piers she was born into the royal family. So in that regard, I guess she wasn’t in it for herself. She didn’t seek out to become a queen, right? But she certainly was in it for herself. Monetarily speaking, Piers. She was worth over $500 million. She sat around eating bonbons with her feet up–investing. I don’t know anybody who’s an investor who doesn’t work a job that isn’t in it for themselves. So, that really pissed me off when he said that. Otherwise I like Piers Morgan. Alright. Enough of that.
The best and most eloquent and compassionate speech that I’ve heard yet (about the Queens’ passing) was from Russell Brand, who can be the most vulgar comedian going but he actually seemed to care about the people who cared about the queen. So I appreciated what he had to say and I got through his soliloquy just fine without something rubbing me the wrong way. But let me remind folks, we fought a war in America against England. We fought against everything they stood for. The whole Church of England and the Anglican Protestant stuff. We did. We fought that and we gained our independence. India also sought, by the way, to gain their independence from England.
England is a monarchy that rules more than 10 countries. I don’t know if people are aware of that. So in this day and age, I would have thought that we’re not living in the Game of Thrones scenario anymore, and we wouldn’t have kings and queens and rulers just when you say the word “subjects” it harkens “slavery” to my mind. So no, I’m not a big fan of the royal family. I never was. But especially not after my mother said the Queen probably put a hit out on Princess Diana because of her affair with Dodi El-Fayed. The Queen wasn’t pleased about Diana and Dodi’s affair. Well, you know, I’m sure my mother wasn’t the only one to come up with that little plausible scenario. I mean, you just don’t piss off a queen. Right? So, Diana kind of made her own bed in that regard. And perhaps literally, but this king Chuck guy was no saint. Come on. He was doing Camilla for how many years? And why didn’t he marry her? Who knows? You know, it’s all screwed up and screwy with that family. I didn’t shed a tear when I found out QEII passed. She loved to get along in life and she was the monarch for 70 freakin years. So most people can’t hold the job or maintain family relationships for 70 years, though, you know, again, she she has a few redeeming qualities. But I’m not so apt to pick up a tissue you know over her passing.
Well, I watched that ridiculous pageant of a funeral for about five minutes. I preferred to spend my time going to a spiritually uplifting and enlightening day (part of what was going to be a weekend retreat). But, I didn’t want to leave my husband for the weekend. (And after he suffered a stroke two days after hurricane Ian passed our area, now I know why!)
I went for one day of a two-day retreat with Gloria Grace Rand, and some kindred spirits. And like minds, yeah, they may not feel anything like me about the queen, but that’s okay. You know, I’ve said enough about her anyway.
Now. Speaking of spiritually uplifting things, subjects topics. Let’s work now to get myself back into a peaceful and calm state after I could feel it in my body that tension and anxiousness. I wouldn’t even call it anxiety. But yes, I get a little tense when I get in a bit of a bend over something and there’s only a few subjects, thankfully, that I get in a bend over anymore. Most of my readers know what those subjects are. Subjects in the other sense of the word.
To make myself feel better, I shift the subject, change the subject, because once a thought builds momentum and spirals out some emotion, it doesn’t just fizzle out. You know, when you get on what I call a bend, or event, or upset over, over something. So, to feel better, I changed the subject to one of the best subjects I can think to switch to, Spirituality. Now again, spirituality is a whole vast myriad, huge subject, huge topic because we can talk about it endlessly because spirit is there no, there’s no way to quantify or even qualify spirits.
But in my book, Blue Eyes, I do talk about the vastness. I didn’t talk about the expansiveness, I talk about how spirit can communicate with us Beyond the Veil. Spirit can communicate with us in many ways, all of our human senses are able to differentiate, decipher identify, pick up tune in to spirit. Oh, we need to do this to be in alignment. All we need to do is tune in sitting and meditating and if one doesn’t meditate, you can pray and then just while you’re praying, just focus on your breathing and quit asking anything. Just stop talking. See how far that gets you. Now if you’re mentally praying, like I think most of you do, while you’re praying mentally, you know while you’re speaking those mental words to some theory or divinity or source.
Just stop asking and wait and focus on your breathing. Focus on how your breath feels in your nose in your mouth, down your throat through the different parts of your body. Sit and do that for a few minutes. And you’re meditating. You’re waiting on an answer. If you go into prayer with a question or or with a concern or worry about someone or something, when you get to this point of just sitting and waiting and not asking anymore, you make it a thought. Now, if the thought is unrelated to what you were just thinking about writing it out. Just let that go. You know, like did I leave the iron on or the bathwater running or the stove on or the lights on our side of the car? You know any of those kinds of parent thoughts that creep in? Just let that go.
Meditation teaches us to watch those thoughts float by on a white fluffy cloud or some something of the sort. If you get a thought drop in to your mind that is something new that you’ve never thought of before directly related to what you were asking about. That is an answer. And you can fairly be fairly certain that it is directly applicable to your question in a way in which you may be able to take action upon it or tell someone else or ask someone else to take action on it. And at that point, you can simply get up and say thank you put your hands up.
I’m assuming you’ve had your hands together if you’ve been praying but if not, that should have been what I offered you first put your hands together say a prayer. Stop your mental talking. Pay attention to the thoughts that drop in not something that you were thinking about before you sat down to just let all that stuff go. But anything new then you can make a note of it something you need to take action on. And then of course you you take pull your hands apart, write down the note and you’re done. Say thank you.
The greatest prayer you can ever pray is simply, “Thank you.” because honestly, when you die and you meet your Creator and you look at your creator in the face, whether near or far however you picture that meeting occurring, if you can even utter the words, “Thank you” in that amazingly glorious, stupendous, spectacular, outrageous blessing, beautiful experience that the lusciousness the depth of that experience. If you can even other two words, I will be surprised. I would be amazed.
If you can say thank you for everything, all of this journey of life, the ups the downs, the roller coasters, the fights, the arguments, disagreements, the hurt, the hurtful feelings, the abuse that being cussed at, whatever, you know, whatever. If you can say thank you to your Creator for everything for your life. That’s it. I mean, that is the pinnacle, the highest that you’re gonna get, and the most just incredible, exhilarating experience. Because God simply wants to be acknowledged now God would love it if we would acknowledge God and I use the word Omniscience for God (now, as of the last 15 years or so), because that’s what was given to me during meditation, prayer and meditation Omniscience. If you’re standing in front of or laying prone in front of Omniscient God or God Omniscience your very breath, your very essence, came from God. And God just wants you to keep connected with God in always every day in all capital all ways.
So, while you’re doing anything, you’re washing the dishes you’re scrubbing the floor, you’re cleaning the toilet, you’re raising your children, you’re working your job, you’re shopping in a store. That’s why lying or stealing, or coveting someone else’s wife or belongings, that kind of thing. That’s why those 10 commandments are Commandments. Not because he just set up rules of the house to say don’t do these things. I don’t like it. It was because when you’re doing those things, you’re out of communion with God. You’re not including the presence of the holy, magnificent immeasurable experience of God that’s why God is Omniscient, right? God sees everything, hears everything knows everything is everywhere all the time. You know, look up the meaning of Omniscience. That’s God. If you do anything that is outside of God, then God’s not in it. Right.
Yeah, the mystery of it is is that God is in everything. So even when the man is beating his wife, God is in the middle of that now those people aren’t aware of that or they wouldn’t be taking that action. That’s the whole issue with works. And when people say faith without works is dead. There’s truth in that. Yeah. When people say all you need is faith, there’s truth in that as well. I am here to wake people up to that. I am here to simply help you become aware of the fact that you can live in gratitude and Grace every single day of your life and in every single moment and every single action when somebody pisses you off when somebody says something to you don’t like when some driver acts a fool on the road cuts you off. Any any of that. I’m I’m driving as I’m speaking, as this is being transcribed by otter. So yes, I’ve seen people act a fool and drive radically. And I mean, I may not approve of it because they’re putting themselves at risk and other drivers on the road. They’re usually someone who’s not mature enough to know that if they lost a tire or a part of their car, that they could have an accident and they could kill themselves or other people. Maybe they kill the people in the car with them and they live themselves what kind of guilt are they gonna live with the rest of their life? Because they needed to get somewhere two minutes before 1000 other cars on the road.
That’s the kind of thing so we can look around we have eyes we can look around and we can see a lot of people doing foolish things around us and we can judge them just like I judge the Queen, right? What was she supposed to do? Give up her crown? Well, she could have said listen, the days of this royal family. This shit is over. We don’t need this anymore. Who’s gonna walk away? The royal family has 88 billion with a B assets, who walks away from that? You know, so it’s a lineage thing. That has gone on for millennia. And so people just don’t walk away from that. Okay, I’ll end there.
We’ve had a nice circular discussion, and I’m going to continue to pray and meditate perhaps come to some different ideas and completions. And be able to be in a more relaxed state when I reach my destination. I love you ALL. Peace to you ALL. Put your hands together when you pray. Ask your question. Stop asking. Wait for the answer. Breathe. Focus on your breath. And when the new thought that you never thought of before drops and say thank you, get up, write it down. Take action. Go about your day with God with knowing Omniscience is always with you. You are never alone. You are never alone.
