Gratitude on my mind

It’s not an official yoga asana (posture), but Gratitude is a part of each posture I perform when I do my Integrated Spiral™ Gratitude F-L-O-W (a combination of movements based on Qigong, Yoga, and Energy Medicine). As well, I am always grateful I can get into and hold the poses of the day in whatever manner I can.

My daily practice reminds me, that whether I’m on or off the mat, I intend to keep my awareness on Gratitude. And actually breathe and live IN Gratitude. Always. In ALL ways.

I’m always grateful for my breath, especially after naturally releasing asthma in 2005 and being able to kick 5 prescription medicines to the curb forever! (Details in my book, Take It Upon Yourself to Live a Wholly Vibrant Life!)

I also often consider how grateful I am that my mind and body work in unison. And that my mind is improving with age (though my mom, aunt, and grandmother had Alzheimer’s disease), because I love a challenge (and gleefully learn)!

I care for my heart and other organs by consciously directing healing thoughts to them many times throughout the day. I am a conscious creator! ❤️🦋🌀〰️

Everything Resolves to Gratitude.

I believe we are each enveloped by Omniscience, divine Love. And we can embrace the wisdom of ALL the masters (I have learned from several now who have passed and continue with several like Dr. Joe Dispenza, Bruce Lipton, Gregg Braden, Nick Polizzi, plus the indispensable, Neale Donald Walsch), who are always near. Plus, my ancestors and relatives in the Grand Beyond and my Third Eye, who guide and support me psychically and spiritually every moment of my life. 💙🦋🌀〰️

Natural forces and Mother Gaia sustain my life and the lives of everyone. The least I can do is care for the Earth and be a good steward.

In particular, I am grateful for my continuing yoga practice with the teachings of Cheryl Chaffee. Connect with here: www.bodymindheartyoga.com

Cheryl’s an amazing, energetic and intuitive yoga master I had the pleasure of working with on Cindy Bartz’s yoga cruise (pre-lockdowns—January 2020).

I am filled with limitless GRATITUDE!

If you ever feel that you’ve messed up, it’s okay. Because in the end, Everything Resolves to Gratitude. Yes, it really does. ❤️😉

Namaste. OM

Faeries

One weekend in 2017, a friend and I attended a Fairy Faire at Spirit University in Sarasota, Florida. I’m drawn to the unusual, yet I had never gone to an event quite like this before.

Spirit University held the event both inside their building and outside, with a roped off area. Inside, there were about 12 psychics offering readings. And outside, there were two food trucks, and about 10 vendors selling various things. It was a spritely time. 🧚‍♀️

There were only 3 musicians playing music throughout the day outside.

Their emcee introduced a variety of speakers. Each speaker talked for 15-20 minutes on spiritual topics. A friend, John Springer, spoke about the faerie realm and passed around photo albums of the many pictures he had taken of the places where faeries might live, in the woodlands and forests. I was enthralled!

It was $3 to get in the door and they put a paper wrist band on us so we could go in/out of the building. Readings were done upstairs, just the way they used to do it at another venue I’d attended in the past.

My mother had recently passed and I had hoped to hear something reassuring from her. But I didn’t set any particular expectations.

What happened next, quickened my heartbeat and stunned me to my core.

Just as I sat down with my reader to begin the reading, I could hear a distinct change in the music that was wafting in from outside. It was Celtic music! This went on during the whole time of my reading!

By the time we’d finished and I made my way back downstairs and outside, the Celtic music had stopped. It was sooo surreal.

I don’t remember a lot of the words from the reading (though I did record it). I did Connect with the reader and felt she was “onto something.” But I will never forget the Feeling of Presence. Perhaps it was my mom directing the Irish music, or my ancestors. I don’t know, nor does it matter. What matters most, is that I felt totally supported.

Everything I learned from attending this Fairy Faire, influenced what would come next in my life, such as my decision to go on a Sacred Celtic Journey. As well, the knowingness I gleaned continues to inform the work that I do within the transformative program of: Integrated Spiral™

John Springer crossed over to the Grand Beyond recently, and I pulled out my notes to write this article, in both memory of him, and to honor the faeries.

The feeling of opening I felt while listening to John speak so lovingly and graciously about the faerie realm, really made an impression on me. John taught me to place crystals, shiny buttons, or other small pretty things, outside for the faeries. Sprites love shiny things.

I learned if you take something from an area, such as a small rock or stone, you leave something for the fairies.

While I have always loved animals, it has taken me much longer to appreciate insects, birds, trees, and forests. And that’s okay, because I appreciate them, Now.

If you look closely, you may see a sprite (faerie) or two, atop the yellow flowers I’m standing near at Glastonbury, England. (2019)

When I planted a fig tree on the property in Hollister, Florida (where we lived Off Grid for 17 months), I placed many crystals and a few broken pieces of jewelry, in a circle around the tree, as gifts to the sprites. And a wink to my teachers.

Note to self: While we were on our Sacred Celtic Journey, friends, John and Carol told me about the John Van Aucken book on fairies gnomes and elementals. I have yet to read it, but it’s on my list! ❤️🦋🌀〰️

Sometimes, when I wake in the wee hours of the morning, I remember that Celtic music… 🎼 🎶 🎵 I remember and listen. I imagine I’m back in Ireland, England, and Scotland. I feel for my roots. I imagine my family. The generations before. I smile. I cry. I give thanks for magic and mystery. I feel all is well. Even when appearances may want to suggest otherwise. I know much is not what it seems.

The faeries have taught me that.

Many blessings to you in ALL ways.

With love when your beloved is passing

When your loved one is passing, or has just crossed over to the Grand Beyond, OUR collective hearts are with you, dear one!

Any perceived loss of life, feels like loss for ALL of us, as I ponder a quote from my dear, minister uncle:

The loss of life, no matter how old or young, one minute or 100 years is a loss for us as human beings.

Our consolation is that one day WE will see them, meet them and share with them for all of eternity. For now and hereafter they remain with God in a beautiful realm of peace and love, they are living and growing and experiencing the best of everything. They will have much to tell us and WE to tell them.

I will in no way rush my time, but on the other hand I can’t wait to see what all God has prepared for us and be able to have unlimited learning and exploration and share with all peoples from the beginning of creation.

I firmly believe we will be able to re-remember what it was like before we left that wonderful place before we left to come here. There is so much to look forward to.

Jim Withee

Everybody hurts

We all know when a beloved transitions, what is an exuberant ride for them into the Grand glorious Beyond, can trigger sadness, and any or all stages of grief in us!

We grieve their daily struggles, and perhaps lack of presence while they are in an earthly body, if they were ill.

We, those you see and those of us you cannot see, lift you (those of you in grief or struggle) UP, uplifting ALL in love. Believe that. Know that.

Cry. Tears can be cleansing. Grief hurts. Release.

We are lifting you UP, IN, OUT and THROUGH in big ole ACTIVE prayer 🙏 believing always (in ALL ways!) for your better health, healing, and vitality!! For your highest good. For your wholeness.

It is possible for you to LISTEN and witness another’s grief, upset, without getting energetically sucked in.

Big God

HUGE!

One might even say, Omniscience! 💕

In so thinking about Omniscience, an Ever-Living, Ever-Conscious, Ever-Expanding, Ever-Pulsing, Ever-BEing… WE KNOW nothing (no thing) happens outside of Omniscience. Therefore, WE are ALL enveloped by Omniscience. And WE are ALL so LOVED!!

Love yourself. Then, go BE LOVE!

And if you misstep, don’t worry. As soon as you see, become aware, of the misstep, right your footing, start again. Like a toddler learning to walk, you can do this. It is ALL practice.

On loss

When it feels like the world is turning in slow motion…
Honor their memory.
Get back into your body, exercise and move.

Sometimes we experience loss, not only when we lose a loved one to the so-called death process, but when we lose a job or home. Any change in our daily routine can set us up to FEEL loss.

Please know your feelings are natural, even when your perceptions are only based on your physical senses (or illusions). It is natural to grieve. Yet, you don’t need to get stuck there.

I’m not merely sorry for your loss (which always sounds callous to me when people say that), I am sorry for your grief. I don’t think grief is good. I know tears can be cleansing, but sh*t. Grief hurts.

There is Limitless, Infinite Love available for you.

You are never really ever alone.

Reach for us. WE are with you.

Whatever WE can do, our intentions are to do for you while you are going through sad times.

Know WE are there for you in spirit.

In ALL directions, Above, and Below, as in Heaven, grounded on Earth, WE are there.

We are ALL One

Speak love to the 100 trillion cells of your body.

Feel our presence, Now.

WE are ONE.

If you are upset about anything, or in grief (like me), or have read / viewed things that got your dander up, (especially things that call out “unifying” as bad—even if you are already balancing and lifting that), we can work through it together.

I am breathing with you ALL.

We Are ALL Connected.

Everything Resolves to Gratitude.❤️

In, around, and through. Big Love. Hugs!

❤️🦋🌀〰️🎼☯️🙏☮️😘

Everything Resolves to Gratitude

Everything Resolves to Gratitude

This philosophy or mantra came to me after my dad’s passing in March of 2019. I can’t tell you exactly how to come around to this thought, especially during times of anger, upset, or grief. But, I can tell you that’s what I received in a KNOWING kind of way.

Everything Resolves to Gratitude

I’ve said these words to people many times. And I’ve written them. I even created a t-shirt with these words on it! I get sideways head glances when I wear it grocery shopping, especially during these COVID times, yet few smile. Perhaps it’s too big of a concept. 🤷🏼 But, I love teaching large and complex topics: like we’re part of God, like different leaves on a tree.

We are all part of the one living garment of God.

I’ve been shown that WE are all part of the one living garment of God. That is why there is no value in judging one another.

Years ago, I watched Russell Brand eloquently talk about how The Christ in confused people is calling out to be saved. He said he loved the elegant simplicity of the Dao (Lao Tzo), the charming voluptuousness of the Vedias, the passion of Catholisicm, and the potency of Islam. For me, The Chosen series about the life and times of Jesus the Christ, and his “‘chosen” disciples enhance the knowledge I have of Christianity and Mormonism.

Brand knows that, “We Are All One.” And Russell admonished us to not be confused by our own conflict or our own biological drives…to simply breathe… Take a moment to strengthen the awareness behind our fear, our desire. Being a recovering addict, he knows a thing or too about desires. He suggested that all of our lives change when we reach that Awareness and that this KNOWING transmits and connects… to each other and to something bigger than ourselves.

Indoctrination and Programming

We all tend to define the world according to the indoctrination and programming we’ve received from the PUBLIC EDUCATION system. And I, along with many others, are now questioning the ideologies behind this “education.” This is why I love continuing education.

I have taken so many courses from thought leaders, Energy Medicine doctors, ministers, life coaches, founders of the Reflexology school in St. Petersburg, FL, raw vegan chefs, Reiki masters, and nurses (like Healing Touch, taken years ago at the cancer hospital in Orlando, FL) and the list goes on and on (see the list on my homepage if you’re very curious). And I live with a genius husband.

Yet, nature and my own body continue to be my most thorough teachers.

You are a fractal of Omniscience

For years I have told you that you are a fractal of Omniscience. Now, I can tell you that your Ego, your individual personality, gifts, and skills is a temporary expression of a much larger YOU – comprised of Spirit, Soul, Mind (Infinite and Unified Field), and Body (that’s made up on 70-100 TRILLION cells, most of which, are not human–they are viruses, bacteria, fungi, and more!

If we had different eyes, ears, skin, indeed more complex senses, we would SEE the infinite vibrations (energies and frequencies) bleeding, leaking, blending, and glowing in a vast and ever-expanding, chaos of tangles in some constant, whir of interconnected fractals. And that what you currently have faith in, is just the structure you’ve been taught to follow. We may never have the knowledge of who and what created ALL (including us), but we don’t really need to if we ACT upon the guidance we’ve received and exercise our FAITH–yes, LIVING what we believe.

How you might “get there”

I deeply appreciate the many blessings in my life, especially:

  • exciting work that I am well paid for
  • beautiful granddaughters (and love of my whole family)
  • increased awareness of how We really Are All Connected everyday, all the time
  • that I Am really so fully saved – feeling the ever increasing awareness of what that actually means!
  • this tactic of writing an “A list idea – of 5 things I appreciate” list!

And another suggestion:

Om karuna swaha

This is a daily meditation / chant for the God of compassion.

Wayne Dyer said, this something (power or force) that grows our fingernails – we cannot stop. And that is true, even after the death of our body, our fingernails keep growing.

My thought: everything in the universe vibrates. I tweeted it. Is it documented in Physics? Yes! Read Niels Bohr.

Having trouble loving someone? Seeing them as God sees them?
Remember what Jerry once told Esther, when Esther had gotten mad at him. Pretend she is their granddaughter. Because Esther could never not love their grandchild – no matter how much of a mess she made, etc. Her love is unconditional for her!

Keys

I am going through some Energy shift since facilitating a TWO hour call in my club: Integrated Spiral this past Saturday night. I spent all day yesterday watching videos of spiritual masters (that had been shared with me), and I boiled my philosophy down even further.

To be IN SPIRIT is to be OUT of one’s mind. All the intellect in the world is no good if we are not LIVING our beliefs. Compassion and Love are keys—for ourselves and others. Yes, ALL others without judgment.
Breathe. 💨
Water. Even a splash will work.❤️💦 Earth. Hands to floor. Bare feet in sand. Garden.

3 keys: Breathe. Water. Earth.

And then, or all throughout those actions: Observe.

Live while you’re living, as I wrote in this song: https://www.n1m.com/richardmurrey/song/1009302-first-friends

I was introduced to Japji (not one but many videos on YouTube), and I am swimming in the enormous Energy of this.

Would you attend a 15 minute room in Clubhouse called, Breathing in Spirit? It will be a “check-in” kind of experience. Consistent practice I find, and this was reiterated to me Saturday night, is key. Because when we are upset for any reason, our breath can balance us (our emotions and body chemistry).

Awareness hidden in your WORDS

OM is hidden in many everyday words like cOMe, hOMe, sOMe, wOMan, and tOMb. 
And bOMb would be using this power as an opposing force.Do you really want to go there?

Why don’t we choose the positive path?

Choose to feel aWEsOMe!
OM is also found in OMniscient, OMnipresence, and Omnipotent. All the attributes of God.

Choose LOVE

Looking through the lens of Love can be easy or difficult, depending upon how you’ve been conditioned to this point in your life. Sometimes, simply being aware and asking yourSelf when issues arise, “Am I feeling restricted or open to this new information?” and sitting with the answer that comes to you. The answer can show you if you are looking at the issue, conversation, person, or such through the eyes of Love, or not.

Many blessings to you in ALL ways. ❤️🦋🌀🎼〰️🙏☯️🌅💦🌱🌳🌴🌲

Clearing the Static

Clearing the Static

Just like the static most of us saw (after the last broadcast of the day on our television 📺 set), we (in our energy body or aura), can gather static around us that needs to be cleared daily.

Stay with me for a moment.

If you walk across a carpeted room on a cold day and touch metal, you may get a shock. That shock is an example of static electricity.

In the dark

You can’t SEE the static electricity, unless it’s dark and sometimes then, it’s visible. But nevertheless, the static electricity IS there.

And seeds grow in the darkness of the soil, so yes, we “go there” into the darkness inside of ourselves to ground and center. Don’t worry! It is not scary, it is freeing! Know thyself.

An exercise

Rub a balloon over a person’s head of hair and static electricity causes the hair to rise.

No one argues that static electricity exists, though mostly, it’s invisible.

It’s just physics. And physics is a Science that is continually evolving (as are we)!

Energy body

Why then, is it so hard to believe that each of us have an energy body? And that the state of that energy body can impact our health!

We can tune ourselves to resonate with EASE. We can make small adjustments to free our minds of static and confusion to feel less anxious, clear and confident—Connected to ALL.

Movies

Years ago, the movie Poltergeist made the TV screen static seem scary, like it was a portal into a dark and evil place. But I say, we must rise above the “programming”!

Be Jesus

Be Jesus

You’ve heard, “Just Do It” as the marketing slogan. And you say you’re a Christian. But you don’t live like Jesus lived. You say it’s because He was God, or God in human form. You say He was perfect and that you cannot be perfect, because you are not God or not The Son of God.

But Jesus said WE are all sons and daughters of God. And that we could do even greater things than He did when He walked the earth.

Faith is trusting and knowing without any doubt.

BE Jesus.

Egoless

Jesus didn’t come to collect followers or win friends. He came to show us what IS possible. That it IS our birthright to live as He did. Study the scriptures with an eye to understand HOW He lived.

Living like Jesus has nothing to do with Ego.

Surrender your Ego.

This whole “need to be perfect,” and “need to be protected” stuff is all driven by Ego. That’s the only “work” you have to do—to let go of that.

BE Jesus.

Ego is manmade, and typically found when we get caught up in comparing ourselves (or our accomplishments) to others.

We are each unique, so all comparisons fall flat. No comparisons are needed. Comparisons are a waste of time. Waste of Energy.

Perfection

Ah, why do we limit our potential, limit our power by thinking we are not perfect? Jesus came to clean us and offer His “perfect protection.” So, why do we doubt ourselves? Do we doubt Him?

I don’t need to be perfect, or protected because I know that I’m enveloped by Omniscience. And I don’t say that with ANY sense of Ego.

I have spoken with some about this and they don’t understand.

It seems to me that being enveloped by Omniscience is when one is resonating IN a high level of faith, trust, knowing. IN that state of blissful resonance, one rests and surrenders to “Everything Resolves to Gratitude.”

One understands the meaning of that phrase.

Personal relationship with Jesus the Christ via the Holy Spirit is wonderful… but I have never felt it necessary to “convert” others or that Jesus is the ONLY way to God. Holy dialogue is inclusive. Jesus (in his lifetime) was the way to get around having to go to a priest to commune with God. Holy Spirit (Spirituality) is available to ALL.

It will ALL work out in the end. Breathe. Be still and know.

Be Whole.

BE Jesus.

Do you think Jesus was a Shaman?

Was Jesus a Shaman?

Think about the following list, in comparison to what we think of when we hear the word, “shaman,” perhaps Jesus was a Shaman.

Story of blind man – Jesus instructed the man to put mud on his eyes

Tempted? Jesus purportedly said it would be better to pluck out your eye (if you couldn’t control your own lust) than lose your soul

Faith – touching hem of his garment (energy flowing through him encompassing his clothing – aura)

Fasting much

Prayer – all the time and in every thought

Solitude – Spent 40 nights in the wilderness

Preaching outside – walked and taught to people where they were, typically to people who did not attend church

Overthrow money changers in the temple – honor God – disruptive – he condemned the corrupt and greedy religious hypocrites

Jesus proclaimed things that were counter to what the priests in the synagogue were preaching, and spoke with authority

Essential oils – used natural elements

Alchemy – changed water into wine

Walked on water and calmed seas – controlled and “partnered with” nature

Jesus ate with publicans and so-called sinners, to the point that some labeled him “evil.”

Jesus was disruptive. ❤️🦋🌀

Perhaps, we can each be our own shaman.

Perhaps, digging in the dirt when I plant seeds in the dark, moist soil, doesn’t make me a shaman, but when I repot a root bound plant, I consider how I am disrupting it for a moment, so it can have more room to grow. And somehow, that makes me feel like a shaman—at least a little bit.

And we can each, grow through the dirt. ❤️🦋🌀☀️🌚💦🌱

Thoughts?

Do you think it’s time to disrupt religions?

God Omniscience IN us, not us IN church. You know, like when Jesus threw those moneychangers OUT of the temple. 🧐❤️🦋🌀🎼☯️🙏☮️
