Times I nearly died

Ran over

Was run over by dad’s car when I was a toddler!

Yes, I was playing in the driveway and the car rolled over me, while mom watched in horror from the porch. She said I ducked as the “pumpkin” of the car went over my head. Mom said dad turned white as a sheet! I didn’t get a scratch.

Almost fell out of a moving car

Another car incident happened when mom set the clothes basket between her and I. I think she was tired or annoyed with me over something.

I opened the car door and nearly fell out! but mom was quickly able to reach over and grab my winter coat, which saved me! When she retold that story, she said she’d been upset with me and put the basket in between us! She never did that again.

Forced field landing

In the late 1980s, I had began working for a very prestigious private aeronautical university. One of our instructor pilots, offered to let me ride along while she took a student pilot on a “prog check,” which is a progress check on their flying. Flight students go through a lot of these kinds of “checks” during their years of training.

Anyway, on this particular prog check, we all wore headsets (and this is key), and the student puts the plane through a series of maneuvers. At one point during our flight, I heard my friend ask the student to sight a field large enough to land because we had lost an engine.

The student found a field and the instructor, my friend, said it was appropriate. I was beginning to sweat.

When my friend announced that we had lost our second engine, and that the student was to start his steps to initiate a forced field landing, I literally said my prayers, and thanks for all my family, children, etc.

My first granddaughter and I holding hands

Something in that moment told me to lift one side of my headset though.

Thankfully, what I heard shocked and surprised me! The plane’s engines were running!!

And that’s the story I always tell to new hires or those that I train on a job, to make sure WE personally check our projects progress, before we panic and believe some external indication that there’s a problem. Usually, there’s no real problem, it’s only one perception.

I’m sure glad we actually didn’t have to land that plane in a field though!

Funny what we think about when we think we might die. ❤️🦋🌀〰️🔥🙏☯️

Spinning out

When my daughter was 16 or so, I had let her drive us back from Orlando on I-4 in Florida. It was raining and the tires on my car were nearing time to be replaced. She was going about 70mph and had the cruise control on.

Seemingly, for no reason, the car started to spin out of control! We literally turned 360 degrees, in the middle of the highway!

We ended up inches from a tree on the side of the road. My daughter was overcome with emotion when she looked over and saw I had not had my seatbelt on. And I felt like it was a miracle we had not hit the tree. We were able to get back on the road and I drove us home. But we learned never to drive using the cruise control when it’s raining!

Flu in 2005

The summer of 2005, I was sooo sick that my husband insisted on taking me to the Emergency Room (ER) of our local hospital. It was there that the two nurses who attended to me told me, “You can’t get the flu in the summer.” But, I tell you, I had the worst flu I had ever had in my life!

I felt so bad, I thought I would die! I coughed so hard and so much, I peed blood, and was given an antibiotic for a urinary tract infection (UTI), though I had no other symptoms of that (and I have had plenty in my life to know what they feel like.

I detail all of this in my book, Take It Upon Yourself to Live a Wholly Vibrant Life!

Flu in 2019

Just after arriving home from Ireland, December 19, 2019, I experienced some weird kind of flu.

My husband teased me a bit, that I had picked up some sickness from that neolithic tomb I had been in! Ugh. (But he really did take good nursing care of me while I was ill.)

I carried a fever for a whole weekend and couldn’t taste my food. But because I do Qigong and Breathwork, I never felt I had to gasp for air.

My back hurt from whatever coughing I had done though, and that was different for me. That was the part I thought was strange about the whole situation.

A friend, who’s now an herbalist, brought me over her special blend of tea. I was to steep it in a boiling pot of water, drape a towel over my head and stand over the pot, head hanging over, to inhale the vapor. I’m sure grateful for caring friends! (If you haven’t yet, now is a good time to build strong relationships!)

I also took Mullein (which is excellent to ease coughs, and people don’t talk about it enough!), vitamin C, and zinc. And drank my water from a copper mug. I rinsed my nostrils and sinuses out daily with a bit of buffered salt and neti pot. And I doubled up on the redox molecules we take.

Something worked, because within about 10 days began feeling better. I can’t tell you what I had or my process, as the doc (yes, I eventually got checked at a walk-in clinic), never tested me, and the public didn’t know about Coronavirus at that time.

Suffice to say, our cabinets are stocked, and have been all through 2020-2021, but gratefully acknowledging we have been fine.

I often wonder about that old saying, “When your time is up, it’s up”!

Many blessings to you in ALL ways.

How does one go about BEing Jesus?

Why do we argue whether Jesus was the only begotten son of God or simply an enlightened teacher?

Why do we argue when what matters is that we simply BE Jesus.

First, each of us can show compassion. We have the capacity and capability to do so.

BE Jesus

Then, he or she who is without sin, cast the first stone.

It is not my business to judge.

It is my business to manage my Energy and mind my Energy. To discern whom I will or will not exchange my time and Energy with.

Everything is Energy.

Time is what is precious.

Life goes on including all of its challenges, but we can choose to sing through it!

If we are in the Upside Down, remember… there’s some powerful work to do there too!🔥❤️🦄🌀🔥

On Empathy and being an Empath

As a highly sensitive person and empath, I experience the feelings of others.

I love to find new ways to think and feel that help me keep my heart open to others (and my ego in check. Meaning maintaining a healthy ego—not being egotistical). ❤️😉

On empathy and being an Empath

The Power of Like and Connection

A friend of mine, Michelle Howe, runs Empath Evolution. I highly recommend her and her work.

About Empathy, Michelle writes, “The POWER of LIKE…….. is really the power of connection…. it’s not about how much you know…. or, what you look like….. or, how much money you make…. It’s the power to put others at ease within conversation and CONNECT to FEEL GOOD with one another.

It’s so interesting….. In making my decisions, this one little thing overrules the rest of the stuff. I have to really enjoy someone which, means our energies compliment one another…….
You know it immediately… it’s like a soft pillow.”

And my reply was:
I love that! And now I feel even better about myself as I have often been told (in my tech career), that I easily put others at ease. ❤️🦋🌀😉

Speaking of Power

After watching the story of how Sly Stallone got his movie, Rocky, made—I made the following observations:

Sometimes we do things (things of which, we may not be so proud), but all of it had to happen, just the way it did, for us to build our character, and allow us to have compassion and empathy for others. For when we walk empathically on the Earth, we can be real and genuine. And then, when we make it to what most perceive as “the top,” we carry ourselves with grace, and easily off grace to others.

I can only speak for me, but I think keeping my ego in balance, taking responsibility for all of my thoughts, words, and deeds, using natural health solutions, and staying grounded, are all major reasons I am drawn to Shamanism.

Empaths and Boundaries

I wholly agree with Sadee Whip.

Sadee says, “I often hear people who identify as empaths talk about how overwhelmed they get, how much they take on the energy of others, how hard it can be feeling so much of what is going on around them, etc.

My dears, what you are actually identifying is not the burden of being an empath, but the imbalance you are experiencing at the lack of your own developed warrior energy.

Warrior energy is an ability to use healthy anger and righteousness to set boundaries, say “no”, and properly protect and defend oneself.

If you are experiencing problems being an empath, seek to bring about balance and wholeness within yourself.

  • This means use your voice.
  • Say no.
  • Tell people they are full of shit when they are.
  • Don’t let others walk all over you.
  • Don’t let others disrespect you.
  • Don’t give of yourself until you are depleted.
  • Ask for what you need.
  • Accept responsibility for your circumstances.

Being an empath, I promise you, is not actually the problem.

Learning to be open and not bleed out is an art. One worth practicing. Focus on your warrior energy and bring that into balance with the empath energy and you will find both peace and power.”

And to this question:
How does this work for healers – mental health therapists, social workers, teachers, etc? I can only say no and set boundaries to an extent in my daily life. My entire day involves saying yes to walking with others through their trauma and pain.

My friend, Andrea, shared her answer:
It’s more about people letting others energies in. Picture your own personal energy space surrounding you about three feet out, with a pink cord from your heart out to others. We stayed connected to others by the pink heart cord, but we don’t let others energies into our personal, self contained space- unless we want to.

This practice is one people can learn to keep others energies from affecting them, draining their energy and so forth. One can do energy clearing every day, from head to toe, visualizing a silver waterfall (and if you do this while showering it can be even more effective, as water is extremely energetically and physically cleansing). And then you can visualize your body surrounded by white or gold light. You can also visualize the violet flame inside your chakras too. This burns off all residual energies of others. (Many thanks to Andrea for this recommended practice!) You can read more at: Andrea’s Personal Blog.

Current currency

When we turn something alive, like spirit, into a commodity — the commercial focus of the act can warp how one looks and feels about it.

Spiritual “Currency” is always in FLOW. It is like a natural river that cannot be “turned off.” And if we dam it up, it can cause seemingly unnatural “problems.”

Let’s unpack what it looks like to stay energetically, Current. And talk about the F-L-O-W of currency (as in the flow of Energy).

This is the reason BEing Jesus (living out the teachings He taught), looks so very different than how enlightened ones (those who have experienced mystical moments) perceive the dogma and structure of “Christianity.”

Indeed the very nature of the original teachings (early Church) that Jesus asked His disciples to “go out to the world” and share, was quite different than what is being preached in thousands of so-called, Christian churches.

I am not a “Church expert,” by any means. But, from what I have gleaned from the teachings IN a variety of faiths, compared to what I know of the experiential acts of Jesus, (and the Energy he was Connected to, using, etc. however you want to say it), I get a very different sense of how we’re actually supposed to be living.

We ARE the Church. We have access to the Energy. That same ever-flowing Life Energy.

And I see where I fall short.

Background

While communing with a magnificent Live Oak tree (on the family property where we’ve been living Off Grid for 17 months), I received an answer as to why it doesn’t matter if we don’t know who our biological ancestors are, in order to honor them and ALL of our connections.

I put a video of myself connecting with Grandmother Live Oak on my Instagram page (if you’re curious). Link: https://www.instagram.com/tv/COED24ciqGc/?utm_medium=copy_link

A couple months later, I created a course called, Communing with Trees to help explain various ways anyone could learn this kind of “information” (gathering wisdom direct from Nature).

Omniscience created ALL

How to stay Current (with energetic information)

To sum up what I got from our grandmother Live Oak:

  • Your intention is enough to get you started
  • You’re daily awareness helps (I believe because it proves your sincerity)
  • THEY (all our ancestors) are grateful when we acknowledge WE came from them! We indeed stand on great shoulders, in every way imaginable!

Peek inside a leaf with a microscope to understand.

I’m not saying that I get the same information from Trees that I get from following the teachings of Jesus, but I am saying there is a frequency and a currency that we can glean from both, that when we sit in that Energy, it is the same. As Omniscience created both.

Omniscience created ALL.

Each string on a guitar are different and produce different sounds, as we produce different gifts, but the strings play a harmonious melody on the guitar, when strummed with intent and practice. Perfection is not required, though can add to the elegance of the music.

Much love and many blessings to you in ALL ways.

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. ❤️🦋🌀🎼〰️🙏☯️🌅💦🌱🌳🌴🌲

If you want to feel good, don’t read this!

If you want to feel good, don’t read this!

Well, sort of. I mean, I can do click bait too, right?

Here’s some feeling good Aha moments that came to me after performing in a “Breakthrough” transformational performance program a few years ago:

  • Don’t ever believe it when someone tells you to “get off your high horse”!
  • I CAN “get on my high horse”!! Ha!!
  • I don’t have to lose my “humble and giving” nature to be all I can be!
  • I know what is good for me!
  • I am worthy!
  • I am loved!
  • I don’t have to hide the real me from anyone.
  • I learned a quick standing method to clear my chakras and I use it every day! Thanks Tess!
  • I still love and take care of my family and friends. I do not have to put “others first.”
  • I am never to old to have fun!
  • I don’t have to have a perfect body to be a singer/performer (Adele, Oprah, Chaka Kahn, several others were curvy ladies, yet still did what they love!)
  • I love the song we all sang together called, “Free to be me” which later in the year, during my Sedona trip, our group of 15 ladies sang!!! 

Karma

Watching karma happen to people who betrayed or hurt you.

Sometimes that feels good huh?

Karma. What comes around, goes around.

Watching someone get what’s coming to them, somehow justifies the truth you felt about them when they were acting (for a day, week, month, or year) like an a$$h0le. Yes? No? Haha!

Well, hear this.

As you justify yourself about that person or specific situation, you are MISSING something right NOW! A moment of relaxation. The pleasant blow of the warm breeze that’s just the perfect temperature for you. A person walking by whom you could have spoken to (that you will never have that unique opportunity again). A kiss from your loved one (who will not always be there).

So, be aware.

Aware more and more.

Awake and aware to all kinds of pleasing potentiality in your moments. The moments that life shows you, presents to you, all kinds of opportunities to be happy, or opportunities to be pissed off.It is YOUR choice, which way you want to feel. Every. Single. Day.

Know that each person or situation to appears to cause you pain or conflict, is in your experience to teach you something. When you analytically search for the source of pain in your body you will not find any independent inherent existance of it. Difficulties are a dillusion. Pain is not solid or real. It is like a mirage in the desert.

A benefit of knowing that We Are All Connected (really see the interrelatedness of all) is that we can release our mind of anger.

Here are some example scenarios:

Karma #1

A certain particular person I knew years ago, lost her job. When a friend told me, I felt ecstatic! Why?

I usually don’t feel good about another’s misfortune. I went back through my notes and found the reason. This person had been a stumbling block in my career–but, there’s no point in digging back into the details or the Energy of it now.

Thankfully, my career rebounded, and as readers of my book know, I took it upon myself to get well by natural means–and since 2005, have been able to travel as much as I want. Ha!

Karma #2

A guy that dumped me years ago, (after a relatively short relationship) told a friend of mine, that his wife is crazy. (I don’t know why my friend felt the need to share this with me, but I’m using it as an example.) This “man” is upset because his wife doesn’t want to have children and apparently, he married her in order to HAVE children. Oh my! People DO change their minds, after all. Things like this happen all the time.

So, did he have a relationship with me (years ago) because he couldn’t be with my friend back then? Or, is he feeding my friend a “line” to lure her into an affair? Perhaps, he’s simply an a$$h0le?

What comes around, goes around.

I realize it sounds like I’m jealous. But, I’m not. (I am so NOT a jealous person.) Yet, I feel sad for my friend and hope she sees through this guy– Then again, it’s HER life!! And NONE of this is any of MY business anyway.

In fact, everything I lived in the past has brought me to the place that I’m at NOW, with so much awareness, and appreciation, and awe that ALL has turned out the way it has. And that my life, now, is GRAND! In fact, from my vantage point today, I’d say that I am living my BEST LIFE!

I am the evidence of my well being.

When I feel great, resonating with and IN all that the Universe is providing, in that moment, it’s AMAZING! However, some others shrink back from it. Why? Why must some shrink to feel comfortable around others? Or why must others need to feel important to make others feel less? It’s an interesting conundrum, but one that I believe is answered in the yin and yang of it ALL.

Do you “get” why things are changing?

Think about the 1960s.

I am a child of the sixties. Born in the very early sixties, I remember watching president John F. Kennedy’s funeral procession (probably from the many replays).

The first transatlantic satellite transmission occured during the year I was born, so is it any wonder I believe We Are All Connected?

I remember the hellish Vietnam war and how many people seemed to snub their noses toward the courageous troops when they returned home to the U.S.A.

I grew up as an only child during a time when television was young and exciting, and could often be used as a co-parenting device. Big stereos, stuffed toy transistor radios, and Citizen Band (CB) radios were fairly common and certainly found in our household–as I’ve written about before, my dad ran an electronics business on the side for many years.

Dad could “talk skip” with people across the ocean on a clear late night. And that would always fascinate me. I would fall asleep listening to the ping from his Browning Golden Eagle and Linear and the jokes of Johnny Carson.

I would dream of where electricity came from! I would follow the wires as we drove somewhere and then ask my mom (who was dumbfounded) that her 6 year old would ask such thought provoking questions! Then again, she knew I was smart.

It’s really very simple, people in pain cause other people pain. You can only then resolve to suffer with your pain or resolve to do whatever it takes to relieve your pain. Setting boundaries work for me, and believe me, I’m much better at setting boundaries, now.

Many blessings to you in ALL ways. ❤️🦋🌀〰️

Time and Saying Goodbye

These are the kind of things many of us experience. I just happen to keep a diary of notes.

In my pages regarding, TIME I found these:

Time, time, TIME

May 26th, 2015

I said goodbye to my granddaughter, Jennie.

It was in this moment that I uncovered one of my first limiting beliefs.

I’d said, “grandma has to work” as I kissed Jennie’s face, arm and leg and said I will see you in two months when mommy brings you to WV.

But Jennie looked me in the eyes with such intent and said, “Come with us grand-ma” (yes, grand ma in two words). And it broke my heart because I also wanted to go with them. And as I said “Grandma has to work” it resonated deep within my body. Ugh!I I don’t want to have to work AND I never want to shut the car door for her and let her leave like that.

I wanted to tell her, “Jennie, you have more places to go and other people to see on your adventure!”

That was six years ago (as of this writing), and Jennie has called herself, Jennifer for several years. As well, I’ve only seen her a few times since then (with the average being once a year, except last year and this year when we chose not to travel). And I also have twin granddaughters I’d love to hug and hold before they start preschool in a couple months.

March 18th, 2016

“And birth is only the beginning. It is overwhelming sometimes to ponder how courageous and brave it is of each soul to agree to this carnal ride.

Oh, how bumpy and bizarre this ride! How curious this journey of becoming human. How mysterious and magical to be in a living, changing, growing, wonderful body!As an adult, we think we’re big enough, strong, and tough enough to survive, but we know the body and mind are fragile too.

Imagine when we are in the womb, how fragile, delicate, and vulnerable we are. Oh, how indescribable it must be!

So, let us all pray and meditate daily about how grateful we are to have been born–to be here! We are able to live, move, and have our being, while not every soul who desires and strives to be here, makes it. And lets be kind to our bodies, our children, and each other. For we are all blessed to be here, and in JOY the time we have on this magnificent planet.

Amen. Namaste. OM – Sheila Murrey

5 years later, on March 18th, 2021 I had an Aha moment about the preceding paragraph when I was going through about 500 writing “Notes” that I had on my iPhone (because yes, I write a LOT, I just don’t publish often due to my job and other commitments).

The Aha was realizing (seeing with REAL EYES), that I’d written that paragraph 3 years BEFORE my dad passed/crossed over, transitioned, or had his “Celebration Day” to the Grand Beyond, and on the DATE that he and I had planned to meet each other, which is another story in and of itself.

February 20th, 2017

Oh! One of the things I hate, is wasting TIME… and I feel like a lot of time has been wasted since Feb. 2020. But, here’s a list of things I was working on to find balance / forgiveness about in 2017:

  • Liars, manipulators, narcissists
  • DuPont, Monsanto/Bayer, Big Pharma
  • Big Oil, Fracking (use solar, wind, geothermal instead!! We do!)
  • Deforestation unless you are replanting trees — use bamboo instead!!
  • Rayon (grandmother poisoned by Viscose factory – they sold out to avoid lawsuits in the 60s/70s)
  • Polyester, Nylon, Patent leather.
  • Plastic (though some BPA free kinds are helpful when camping) (Stop using / stop buying new plastic. Clean up beaches. Watch the film Sonic Sea.)

I began to daily recognize that shit is a necessary fertilizer by which we grow, though it smells and I don’t always like it.

When any of these people, places, or circumstances come my way, I let it go as best I can to Limitless God, forgive them as they know not what they do.

I hold compassion for my imperfect self, because my reactive mind sometimes feel PTSD type sensations. So, I must feel and own my feelings. And sometimes respond somewhat harshly in the moment based on the previous impressions received and I don’t always quickly access my intellect.

There is only 3 ways to resolve any problem:

Accept it, Change it, or Avoid it.

When we visit in person again

I’ll show my granddaughters Qigong forms. And I teach them how to appreciate our time together vs feeling sad or upset that our time together feels so short.

We’ll play in the clothes I took to them from my mom (that my mom had saved in my grandmother’s cedar closet), and explain how they can wear them when they are teenagers.

And we’ll go to the Chaos and Kindness store and to Art Escape.

We will paint together and make things.

We’ll bounce on their trampoline together too! And we’ll camp, snuggle, color, and make jewelry together. 😉

We will cherish each moment of Presence.

We will figure out a way to bottle the smell of their hair. Because that’s one of the things I miss the most about not being with them. ❤️🦋🌀〰️

Why are we living during this challenging time?

For anyone wondering why they are living during this time,
“Did you think the Creator would create unnecessary people in a time of such terrible danger?”

Know that you yourself are essential to this world. Understand both the blessing and the burden of that. You yourself are desperately needed to save the soul of this world.

Did you think you were put here for something less?

In a Sacred Hoop of Life, there is no beginning and no ending.

Each of us is important and have a mission. Much love! ❤️

No matter which path you follow, stay Connected

No matter the path, stay Connected

Meditate on these words. Let me know what changes for you in a week. I love reading your comments!

The Nine Noble Virtues
Honor your elders (statue of Native American elders)
Diurnal cycle
Jesus in the center
Always consider Perspective
Mandala drawing
Walk a mile in another’s moccasins
Consider the relics
Completed Mandala – We Are All Connected
The healer in me, honors the healer in you. Medicine wheel; Sedona AZ
Be creative. Give back to nature.
ALL paths are merely suggestions.
Symbols remind and instruct us.
To ground us. To guide us.
Even about how to heal ourselves.
And learn new ways. An Iris is miraculous.
Activate your DNA daily. Feel the Godbumps (like goose bumps, but deeper).
Share your soul with others.
About your soul family.
And if you feel hurt… forgive yourself and your others.
Your vibration is ALWAYS key.
Connect with a tree. Even through a window.
And remember, even the most spiritual have to buy food, and take out the trash. Namaste.
Hold hands. Whenever you get the chance.

Tips for staying Connected

  • Walk outside
  • Smile at someone (even if you have to fake it)
  • Say something to someone
  • Write someone a note
  • Hug someone
  • Hold someone’s hand
  • Help someone
  • Chat online
  • Bridge the age (frequency) gap
  • Join a group (yes, even a networking group)
  • Open your home to someone
  • Take a class
  • Grow something
  • Give something away
  • And if you burn something, send your kisses with it in the smoke

Pondering: A day in Jesus’ life if He walked the earth NOW?

A day in Jesus’ life if He walked the earth NOW?

This is a question I am currently pondering: What would a day in Jesus’ life look like if He walked the earth NOW?

  • Would His disciples be glued to their smartphones, while sitting in Jesus’ presence?
  • Would He or His disciples watch TV, listen to the radio, talk on the phone, play video games, or get caught up in any “distractions”?
  • Would He still wear sandals, shoes, or walk barefoot?
  • Would Jesus own property? Maybe somewhere Off Grid, where He could commune with nature?
  • Would Jesus eat processed food, or grow His own food?
  • Would Jesus preach and teach from different churches or homes? Tent revivals? Sacred ancient sites? Speak on Clubhouse?
  • Would Jesus drive, or walk? Ride a bicycle, or have his disciples drive him around? Perhaps use public transportation?
  • How many hours a day would Jesus pray? Would He meditate?
  • Would Jesus watch or play sports of any kind?
  • How would Jesus CONNECT people?
Fast and pray, meditating on ALL. We are thankful. Unnecessary things and habits can fall away. We can see with REAL EYES. ❤️🦋🌀🙏☯️

Here’s one of our original songs you can listen to as you ponder some of these things:

If Jesus wore shoulder pads
