Book Review: Dancing with The Field: Bringing Joy, Passion and Play into Everyday Life

Book Review: Dancing with The Field: Bringing Joy, Passion and Play into Everyday Life

An energetic, illuminating, and enlightening read.

Kris Kelkar’s book, Dancing with The Field: Bringing Joy, Passion and Play into Everyday Life, was a JOY to read! I sped through this book within a month (quite unusual for me)! It just sucked me IN! (Or perhaps, I sucked this book IN because of my extreme interest in the subject and eagerness to PULL this knowledge into ME! Haha!)

“We never see anything in its totality because everything is made up of layer upon layer of vibration that is constantly changing and exchanging information with the field. Our thinking minds create separation in an effort to understand, but that separation stops us from seeing the whole-that everything is connected to the one vibratory source, which is the Field. The Field does not only exist around us, but it also exists in us, through us, and as us.” Kris Kelkar, author Dancing with The Field: Bringing Joy, Passion and Play into Everyday Life

Interconnections and Vibrations

Throughout Dancing with The Field, Kris offers us deeply engaging, easy-to-follow, information on the Science of vibrational interconnections and how The Field underpins EVERYTHING!

As an Observer of Nature, I teach others how to shift our eyes to see things differently, so we might view multiple sides of a story or the various aspects of ANYTHING. And Kris adds a beautiful explanation, in the quote I share above, for why I do what I do! Reading that one page helped crystalize (for me) what I’ve been yearning to explain, simply.

Waves of Energy

Kris writes about the waves of Energy, yes. And of magic, mystery, and coherence. He dives into Spirituality and metaphysical teachings, as he explains frameworks. And touches on Tibetan Buddhism too!

Kris and I are on the same wavelength it seems. Similar to things I teach, Kris sees spiritual practices as training wheels too, like guidance or guard rails to living life. But, not so necessarily needed that we have become enmeshed with these particular dogmas such that they become an end to our means–in other words, we don’t have to worship the framework! (Even Jesus was teaching us a WAY we could live, not that we were supposed to WORSHIP Him!)

As well, and to build on this for a moment, we can take the profound words of Alan Watts, Terence McKenna, John Lennon, George Harrison, and Russell Brand and codify them into a religion (Oh, wait! “New Age” probably has already done that! LOL), but we don’t have to do that, nor do I think any of them would want us to do that! I know (from speaking with him) Neale Donald Walsch doesn’t want us to worship him! (Wink to Neale!) Of course, bowing is okay and gently honoring and humbling. To BOTH parties! As each of us are fractals of Omniscience. OMG I’m on a roll! ROFL!

Okay, Sheila. Calm down. Ha! Breathe. Ground. Center. OM

Kris does emphasize the value and healing of GROUP PRAYER though, as that creates coherence in the WAVE! And I believe that too, especially after experiencing the power I felt during a recent group OM chant, led by Dr. Shamini Jain! There were about 1000 people in the room and as am empath, I could FEEL the resonance and palpable Energy during that blissful coherent chant! I could FEEL the resonance in my soul as the blood in my body produced GodBumps!!!

I’ve been teaching certain classes and practices, methods and processes within my larger Integrated Spiral™ DE-Program (link here; and example of the process here) for over a year. But Kris summed it all up so nicely in this quote:

“We never see anything in its totality because everything is made up of layer upon layer of vibration that is constantly changing and exchanging information with the field. Our thinking minds create separation in an effort to understand, but that separation stops us from seeing the whole-that everything is connected to the one vibratory source, which is the Field. The Field does not only exist around us, but it also exists in us, through us, and as us.”

Kris Kelkar, author Dancing with The Field: Bringing Joy, Passion and Play into Everyday Life

Favorite chapters

My favorite chapters, which I plan to read again and again, are:

  • Our Bodies are Doorways to the Field
  • Balanced, Attuned, and Aligned (as I’ve been doing the balancing and integrating, but with less focus on tuning. And why we read books like this–to remind us!)
  • The Field in Relationship (as my husband and I practice this a LOT!)
  • The Nutrient of Attention (as I struggle from having suffered “low self esteem” when I was young, to now, a few calling ME (ha!) “arrogant”!)
  • Breathing in The Field
  • Ecstatic Breathing
  • Conscious Slow Breathing
  • Breathing Bypasses Programming

Notice all the chapters having to do with BREATHING are favorites.

Why?

Ready?

Because I’m a BREATHER! Haha!

Sorry, sorry… but that’s a twist on a favorite movie line of mine from Something about Mary, “We got a bleeder!” – and if you haven’t seen it or don’t remember, here’s a clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IBwTeyZDRos

In summary

I’ve been a student of Nassim Haramein for several years, so I “got” what The Field is (and is no doubt why I was drawn to buy this book). BUT, I had not read any other book where someone from Kris’ background and education could explain certain things in a language that more matched my own, without all the scientific terms. (I do consider myself a scientist, but only in the natural sense of the word, as I observe, measure, research, test/experiment, and document.)

I love that Kris has also learned from the work of Dr. Joe Dispenza. Love Dr. Joe! Now, I’m wondering if I’ll bump into Kris at any event with Wim Hof, Dr. Bruce Lipton, or Gregg Braden?!? Ha! I bet we’ll meet one day!

For me, after finishing this book yesterday… and once again I resoundingly state that, Everything Resolves to Gratitude.

Book Review: New Perspectives, Past Lives

Book Review: New Perspectives, Past Lives

A beautiful soul-reaching, inspiring, reverent, vulnerable, and enlightening read!

Book Review (showing Book Cover): New Perspectives, Past Lives

Shari Hinkle’s book, New Perspectives, Past Lives is a book that I spent quite a while reading as it touched me deeply. Knowing Shari personally, having traveled with her (and a group) to Ireland, England, and Scotland in the summer of 2019 helped too, as I could hear her voice in my head as I read, and put a frame around some things she’s told me.

Meet Shari

Massage therapist, Pilates instructor, and new author, Shari Hinkle, Connects with me on so many levels! And we can talk for hours, even while she’s massaging this body that I inhabit! LOL (then again, I am always intrigued and asking questions of most of my massage therapist (LMT) friends! Go figure!)

Shari and I seek and observe (and then share) many of the synchronicities that we each experience. And we both love talking about anything that’s vibrational in nature, Energy Medicine, personal responsibility and choices, as well as, how We Are All Connected (and interconnections that are ALL around us)!

After having many profound past life regression sessions with Patricia McGivern and writing this book, Shari also offers past life regression sessions to clients. And if you’re interested, continue reading and consider connecting with Shari for your own session.

Interconnections and Vibrations

Throughout New Perspectives, Past Lives, Shari offers us more about how everything is interconnected through Vibration. She explains why we use phrases like, “feeling blue,” “out of the blue,” and “green with envy.” (Remember, color is a vibration).

Shari also explores how our soul can draw us to a physical place and location, such as how we were drawn to the Sacred Sites of visit Ireland, England, and Scotland. She calls this kind of draw an “energy of connectedness.”

Layers of Energy

Shari writes about the layers of Energy and lessons she learned from re-experiencing her past lives through her hypnosis past life regressions sessions with Patricia McGivern.

Shari was re-introduced to characters as she made her way through a series of past life regressions with Patricia, and some of those persons (or personages) were people she’s met in THIS life! Baffling and thrilling, right? I won’t spoil it for you, but when you read it, look closely at the character, Gilda.

In one past life, Shari learned that “There is Power in the Pause.” (capitals mine) I meditated on that sentence for some time. (And as you may remember I love the book, Power over Force, and as a writer the word Power tends to always leap off a page!)

I found that Shari’s way of explaining bodily sensations were unique in this book, and I believe that’s because of the training in massage and Pilates she’s had. She puts a special spin on things that I’ve felt but had a hard time describing! Here’s one quick example,

The “imprint” of energy began to magnify up to my brow bone and then around my head.”

From New Perspectives, Past Lives by Shari Hinkle

Loving reminders

In New Perspectives, Past Lives, Shari touched on something one of my grandfathers always used to say, “Stop and smell the flowers.” Statements such as these, as I read them, make me feel as though my family on the other side of The Veil are sitting beside me! Ah! Love it.

Some layers of stuck energy actually hinder us from living up to our highest potential, or keep us from “shining bring” as Shari says. I know after our trip to the Sacred Sites on our Sacred Celtic Journey in July 2019, I began writing emails–even business emails–starting with the words, “Hello bright shining ones.” I had never done that before!

If you think re-living a past life experience might be painful, know that a hypnotherapist can bring you back to reality very quickly. And that immediately, or within some short time period following the session, you’ll probably feel relief (either physical, mental, or emotional) from having gone through the process and released something that had been bound in that former life. That’s certainly been my experience, as well as gain broader, deeper, and a much more intimately personal understanding of spirit, Omniscience God, sense of Compassion for others, and ALL.

In summary

New Perspectives, Past Lives is soul-expanding, and mesmerizing. It is relevant (especially if you have unexplained body pain), enlightening, and curious–in the mystical way.

For me, the new perspective I gained confirmed once again that, Everything Resolves to Gratitude.

First use of Otter: Shout out to Queen-Kimmie and Shawn7 of The BOSS Effect podcast, Cheryl Guidry, CBD, Alzheimer’s, Dance of Energy, and Omniscience

This is a shout out to Otter as they are transcribing this, as I’m talking while I’m driving, and it looks like it’s working. So that’s good because I wasn’t sure because of where the phone was sitting in the car. I edited later and added image and URL links. Well, hello everybody. My name is Sheila Murrey. And if you’re reading this, you’re already aware of who I am and the name of my blogs: The Wholly Integrated Self and Being Wholly Vibrant (where I encourage everyone to Take it upon yourself to live a wholly vibrant life). And you can find it at SheilaMurrey.net. That’s Murrey with an EY. ❤️🦋🌀🎼 And I’ve picked up that little tip to sing it out from my friends and podcasters, Queen-Kimmie Tyson (she sings her name out as Kimmie with an IE). Shout out to her husband Shawn7 too–I like to hear him sing also, but he’s a rapper. And I don’t listen to rap quite as much as I do other styles of music. I love your voice too Shawn7, and your easy going style. So what I would like to talk about today is podcasting. I have been listening to Queen-Kimmie and Shawn7s podcast on my drive to and now, from Miami today, which is about four hours down from where we live in Bradenton, Florida. I’ve had time today to listen to many of their podcast episodes and pick up valuable information. Queen-Kimmie and Shawn7s podcast is called, The BOSS Effect. B O S S stands for bold, outspoken, soulful storytelling. You can find their podcast on whatever podcast player you use. I highly recommend you check out several or all of their episodes because they’re so fun. They’re so authentic. They ask great questions of the folks they interview. On most episodes they play a fun 10k game with guests which really lets you know a little bit more about how the guest speaker does their internal processing. I’ve loved listening to each of these because when a person is put on the spot and they’re asked how to spend $100 without borrowing any money from any friends using only a beater truck and their skills, to make $10k in 10 days for themselves. I mean that’s that’s the kind of question that really makes your brain work. You know, you don’t just sit and meditate necessarily and go into a sort of LaLa land mental state, all calm and restful, when trying to answer those kinds of questions, right? When you go to work on a question like that, your brain goes to work. And one of our mutual friends Cheryl Guidry (when they interviewed her), she talked about CBD–C as in Cat, B as boy, and D as in dog. CBD is a special oil or substance derived from hemp, which is a sister to marijuana but there’s no THC in hemp. So you if you do get any THC, it’s a very miniscule amount in this oil. But what this oil does, and I’m circling back to the brain because I do spiral thoughts (when your mind kind of goes in circles), getting to my point–when you want to improve your brain power (to answer a question like how you would earn $10,000 in 10 days. Well, your brain is like a machine. Thinking can be called machination, right? It’s machining to calculate and come up with strategize, devise all these things. So it’s not in a relaxed state. The CBD oil that I’m talking about helps improve brain cognition! Cheryl Guidry talked about CBD–find her company link here. And my daughter also sells CBD oil for a well-respected company: check it out here. When you take the CBD oil, over time, (I literally take only two or three drops of the CBD oil every day, or every other day), the benefits seem to build. I may forget to take it a day or two. It’s fine. I start taking it again. And it’s like my brain functions like a car with eight cylinders, and all eight cylinders are firing versus a car with eight cylinders in the engine and only six cylinders or maybe even four are firing. You know I wouldn’t get very far right and the car would run very smoothly if it was only running on half power. Or two thirds power. So my point is, if you have any issue in wanting to improve your brain, power or cognition, yes, reach out to Cheryl Guidry or click this link (compare the two brands) because CBD is life changing. I will say, the reason I first started to even explore taking CBD was because my mother had Alzheimer’s. The last probably 20 years of her life. It was very slow. It was a very slow decline but the last five years of her life, her quality of life diminished very quickly. And the last of those last five years my dad was her sole caregiver. So I looked for things that could help both of them–my dad as caregiver and also my mom–to help her get maybe 10 or 20% of her cognition back, but unfortunately I found CBD just weeks before she passed. I had just started taking it for myself and wanted to be the guinea pig to make sure it would be okay to give her because my mother was very sensitive. AB RH negative blood type made my mother very sensitive to everything–she wasn’t able to take penicillin, for instance. Just very sensitive to chemicals, and anything synthetic and toxins which we all know we were all exposed to toxins in one way or another everyday. Point is my grandmother had Alzheimer’s (or some form of dementia) when she passed away. That would have been my mother’s mother and my mother’s older sister. So with Alzheimer’s in my family that close, I really knew that I needed to amp up my approach to improving my brain power. I work in technology. So when they say just work a puzzle every day to maintain brain health, I do. I troubleshoot every day on the computer. So I’ve got that piece down. And I love MCT oil, which is a form of coconut oil. I love coconut so that’s not an issue for me, but not everybody loves coconut (and MCT sometimes still has a bit of coconut flavor). CBD gives you a quick, easy way to improve your brain. It’s not inexpensive, but doesn’t cost a lot when you only take a few drops a day. I’m not even taking a dropper full. Which, if I was it would probably last me 30 days or 60 days but I don’t take much, so it lasts me for literal months, probably six months per bottle. I spend maybe 50 to $75 on a bottle, so that gives you just some idea. Don’t quote me on CBD oil prices because it also depends on the strength that you buy. Maybe 500 milligram, 1000, milligram, 1500, milligram, that kind of thing. So I just take a very minimal milligram and a minimal dosage. And I can tell if I don’t take it for a couple of weeks. I’ll start walking into a room going Why did I walk in here? But by taking this every day, or like I said even every other day. I don’t have those moments. I don’t have the brain fog. I don’t have those senior moments, as they call them. So again, I love what I do as far as my job. And the last few years I’ve been really thankful to be supporting our US veterans, but when my project with the VA ended, I thought I was gonna be laid off. I started actually for my own business on the side. But you all know that. IntegratedSpiral.com Probably a couple years ago now, actually. But then COVID happened and I wasn’t laid off when I had initially been told I would which was great because I got to work for the last couple of years for the VA continuing to work on computers from home which is what I enjoy. And I get paid well I mean I went to school for this and have degrees as well as a 30 plus year career in technology. So it’s not something that I thumb my nose at or want to throw away to become an full-time entrepreneur. But there are things aside from tech aside from computers that I love, which would be my spiritual writing my spiritual mentoring. I’d love to meditate more. I love to talk with people and have real and authentic and down to earth conversations with people even when they disagree with me about who God is where God is what God is, because I don’t believe are in a human form that will ever understand. Anyway, we’ll never understand the mind of God but I love talking about it. I love putting my body into a space of learning and absorbing not only what others tell me, but what I hear myself say because it’s often nothing that I’ve thought of–it just drops into my mind. I don’t call myself a medium, channel or any such labels. The words simply F-L-O-W from Spirit through me. I then get the feeling of what we call, GodBumps. And there’s some other folks that I’ve connected with on Facebook talk about the sensation of GodBumps as well! They wrote a book about it. Their book is called GodBumps you can search for it (authors Davie and Joyce Pfaffle). Join their Facebook group called, GodBumps–I’m on there too! Davie shared their links: My YouTube channel where 135 & counting videos that gave me GodBumps are: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLCB0DBA31EE780C72 The only requirement for this group is to have posts be about GodBumps. This is where we share what gives us GodBumps, tingles, goosebumps, visions and other sensations from Spirit. http://flowlifeflow.com/godbumps.htm is where you can find out more about GodBumps and the Kindle link for our “GodBumps” book. My blogs about GodBumps: https://godbumpscom.wordpress.com/2016/09/27/first-blog-post/ https://godbumpscom.wordpress.com/2016/10/26/how-godbumps-guide-me/ https://godbumpscom.wordpress.com/2016/10/20/how-do-we-get-the-godbumps-going/ https://godbumpscom.wordpress.com/2016/10/18/the-divine-incoming-love/ https://godbumpscom.wordpress.com/2016/10/17/guidance-through-how-you-feel/ https://godbumpscom.wordpress.com/2016/10/15/ever-get-godbumps-reading-a-book/ https://godbumpscom.wordpress.com/2016/10/12/what-level-of-godbumps-are-you-in/ It’s just an amazing journey when you like to dabble in metaphysical things. When you are drawn to nature as the basis of your religion not that we’re worshipping the created. We’re worshipping the Creator through what has been created not through books, necessarily, although we use books and scriptures as sacred text, but also sacred sites and things that are tangible that we can feel and touch see and smell and taste them have been here for 1000s of years. I mean, things that were written down have been mistranslated and I think we all know and understand that things can be lost in translation, the meaning of words can be lost. So we’re skewed skewed just enough that is a one word. Now if you take one Holy Bible scripture that has one word and that is so limiting and divisive that you can form other religions just by using that one word and that one word is only if you can do that with the power of one word, just imagine how powerful those written texts are. And if you get that one word wrong then how far off the path do you go? And does your life become and I don’t want to wake up in the grand beyond one day and go my complete the whole path that I was on was wrong. But you know what, in the worst case scenario even if that happened, God is still an entity and a force to create creative source of energy that we can barely grasp the concept of, and I believe that God or omniscience as I call it, God would totally take care of that because omniscience sees everything omniscience is the field the unified field that puts everything together that allows everything to be put together and created right so the energy creates and the energy is the foundation as well for all of the creation to sit and stand upon. That’s how I view it. And when I start talking about that subject, that’s what I want to spend the rest of my days on. After I retire from tech whenever that is, whether that’s this year or next year, or when I turned 62 or 65, I’ll coach. On the side, I do coach people or mentor, but I prefer to use the term facilitate because it’s really a facilitation. Remember John Travolta’s character in the movie, Phenomenon? Go back and watch the part where he does the energy dance with the spoon at the yard sale. You know Kreskin, years ago when I was a kid, Kreskin on TV used to bend spoons I think your yellers others, they would bend spoons. But John Travolta in Phenomenon takes a spoon with his finger (without touching it) and he makes the spoon kind of do a little circle or dance. And I said that’s it right there. It’s a dance of energy. We are all dancing with Source Energy every single day. Everything we think everything we say. We breathe in spirit. We breathe out a mixture of our soul, which is in our blood mixed with that air that we had breathe in. So we’re, we’re mixing spirit with soul in our body every time we breathe and we’re impacting other people’s lives. Every time we breathe every time we speak, whether we know it or not. So when we can glimpse that and have a tiny more bit of awareness, we become a little bit more responsible about what we’re reading, what we’re watching who we’re conversing with what we’re saying. Every and I know. I know. The phrase that may come to mind now is don’t sweat the small stuff, but it’s all small stuff. And I believe all the small stuff matters because we’re created from small stuff, molecules, atoms, the nucleus, the nuclei, the neuro peptides, the neutrinos, that’s that’s where I was going with that neutrinos are one of the smallest particles that physics that science has found. Physicists say that 10,000 neutrinos go through our bodies because our bodies are not solid. They’re soluble. Every second 10,000 neutrino particles every second bombard our bodies, and they go through our bodies. So can you imagine we’re kind of like this mushy collection of molecules that’s bound together by what? Blood bone? muscle tissue ligaments? Yeah. It’s really fascinating. When you think about we’re like this meat sack walking around. And our blood is formed from being a fetus in a mother and whomever she is or was and then her parents and their parents and their parents. And their parents. I mean, wait, life has continued on this planet anyway, as far as we know, from perhaps two people or more, you know, and then you are sitting here as a result of all these people that have come before you so when you hear people say we stand on Grand shoulders are great shoulders, to know what we know and to advance science tech and center that is so very true. We wouldn’t be here without our parents, their parents and so on and so forth. The Native Americans have a beautiful belief system that speaks to that. That’s many of them call it seven generations. So that’s where they get that little dishwashing liquid, you know, company that was formed, Seventh Generation, right because we want to take care to not overreach what we do on this planet so that seven generations from now (after us), people will still have things to enjoy, like we have to enjoy today. But listen, I’ve went on longer than I imagined that I would when I began this. And I really want to say that I appreciate you all for reading and for listening. And I am IN Joy. I am in gratitude, as Everything Resolves to Gratitude. Take it upon yourself to live a holy, vibrant life because We Are ALL Connected. It all matters. Amen. Namaste.

Clearing Karma

In the movie, The Mule, the main character played by Clint Eastwood, cleared his Karma at the end.

Perhaps it takes a lot of maturity to recognize what our Karma is, how to carry it, or if possible, clear it. That’s the age old question, no?

From Theosophy

When I studied the writings of Ernest Holmes from 1927 and Annie Besart during the years I explored Theosophy, one of the beautiful poems I kept follows next:

Oh hidden life, vibrant in every atom

Oh hidden life, shining in every creature

Oh hidden love

Whatever is Karma results from man’s self-created destiny, cause and effect in the now or preceding life (there is no fate from that we make).

Theosophy strongly advises against “healing the sick through the power of Mind.” Metaphysical or mental healing practices. (I ask, but what about Laying on of hands?)

Theosophy admits much sickness today stems from misguided, neurotic, or uncontrolled thoughts, which can be alleviated by raising our everyday consciousness to a purer and higher level.

We have the power to control our future conditions by changing our present thoughts and actions, but only alter external conditions to the extent our Karma will allow (limited/limitations)! Sow and reap. Reap what is sown.

Ah! If mind power is deliberately applied metaphysically with any selfish intent or personal material aims, it is black magic. White magic is doing that for solely for the blessing and benefit of others.

Daoism

A beautiful illustration of the law of karma in action was when my Qigong Master teacher Lama Nicholas was nearing this life’s end, many of his former students (poor at the time of their training), responded with a great outpouring of love and donations during his illness.

Through following Lama’s transitional process, I witnessed the love, care, and deep compassion between he and his students—full circle. And indeed as I practice the motions he taught the classes I had great honor to participate in, I remember these stories and lessons. ☯️

From Numerology

Number 9 is the number of Universal love, eternity, faith, Universal Spiritual Laws, the concept of karma, spiritual enlightenment, spiritual awakening, service to humanity, humanitarianism and the humanitarian, lightworking and lightworkers, leading by positive example, philanthropy and the philanthropist, charity, self-sacrifice, selflessness, destiny, life purpose and soul mission, generosity, a a higher perspective, romance, inner-strength, public relations, responsibility, intuition, strength of character.

Presence

We can wear or carry our Presence all day as a kind of perfume! Ah, he must be reading Sadhguru’s book, Karma! I’m drafting a book review of it and will link to it here, when I’ve published the review. For now, here’s one summation:

Quote from Sadhguru’s book, Karma: A Yogi’s Guide to Crafting Your Destiny.

Some say that our choices are so important in life because if we make a wrong choice, it could curse our soul (and our karma) and create an outcome one would never want to bring upon oneself.

Book Review: What Dreams Have Come

Book Review: What Dreams Have Come

A beautiful soul-reaching, inspiring, reverent, vulnerable, and enlightening read!

What Dreams Have Come book cover

What Dreams Have Come is an excellent book! I read it within 24 hours, as it is highly engaging, elegantly, and lovingly written!

Intimately personal

Film producer, co-founder of the Spiritual Cinema Circle, and author, Stephen Simon, with his beloved wife Lauren (who gently crossed over to the Grand Beyond in her sleep), provides us ALL the opportunity to gain a sense of the “Other Side,” while welcoming us into their personal lives (by sharing the synchronicities of how they met, including family photos, and intricate details).

Over the years of seeing Stephen host the monthly DVD Spiritual Cinema Circle, we felt we had gotten to know him, personally. And he would often speak of Lauren and all the work she did for the Circle. We also felt Connected to Stephen and Lauren through their posts on Facebook. But never did I feel as privy to their innermost thoughts as I have sensed from reading this book. If eyes are the windows to the soul, then books such as these are doors to the heart.

Intertwining honor and love

Stephen and Lauren lovingly crafted a book rich in story that graciously includes the ways they honored and cared for each other (and continue to), as well as demonstrate the ways in which they highly value inclusivity (by bringing us in and honoring their family, neighbors and friends—including my favorite spiritual author).

Emotionally stirring

I cried, laughed, and yes, had jaw-drop moments while reading, What Dreams Have Come. I resonated with much of Stephen and Lauren’s candor and playfulness. (And not to give anything away, but my husband and I often recite our favorite movie lines to each other too!)

There were the touching moments of serendipity and synchronicity built into the way Stephen and Lauren met, and noted all the way through their marriage. The way they shared their pain and triumphs were inspiring to me.

I also really loved the end of the book—totally thrilling! And of course, this is not the end of a love and life together for the Simons.

UPDATE: Please listen to Stephen Simon’s interview with Allison Dubois: Interview

In summary

This book is soul-reaching, and deeply inspiring. It is reverent, vulnerable, and enlightening. I’m in awe of what Love can do—in ALL ways.

Game of Thrones Tour: Dublin Ireland – Winterfell

Game of Thrones Winterfell Tour Dublin Ireland

Well, yes I know. This was a long awaited post for many of you! My apologies for putting this next to last on my list of our European trip articles to get done, but I hope worth the wait! And anyway, the first shall be last and the last shall be first.

I still have one more article of our arrival and first day in Ireland to post. So stay tuned! ❤️🦋🌀😉

Our Game of Thrones tour (from Dublin, Ireland June 29, 2019) went to northern Ireland, which seems to be a different country, as the monetary system changed to the British pound. Only a small sign marked the border along the highway as our tour bus drove us near Belfast.

Preparing for the trek

Prior to beginning our Sacred Celtic Journey, and as a bit of bait (nah, not really needed though, as my hubby had already decided to go to Europe with me), we arrived in Dublin, Ireland on Friday, June 28, 2019. This afforded us the luxury of having a free day to acclimate to the time difference and explore Dublin city centre before embarking on a full day Game of Thrones trek on Saturday.

We brought our good hiking boots, and dressed in layers, and though I had trained for about a month prior to going on this trip, I found out that I hadn’t done enough! 🤣

The GoT trek

Our GoT tour did not disappoint! In fact, it was entirely amazing!!!

Our tour guide, Eric, had been an extra on the spectacular and daring Game of Thrones (GoT for those unfamiliar with the abbreviation) show for 8 seasons and totally knew his stuff. He gave us inside information about the show, including behind-the-scenes, making of GoT episodes, site locations, and much more!

And me by the GoT bus

Eric literally brought every location to life for our tour group! He provided us all a look at 8.5 x 11 inch laminated photos so we could link, in our mind, each location to scenes from the show and enable us to have a point of reference. This not only enhanced our enjoyment of the tour, but gave us the ability later to relive points of the trek when we rewatched episodes of GoT! Excellent!!

Here’s your sign!
Okay, so I loved the scary forest.
The moss captivated me

We learned all about how they made the fake snow. Really incredible.

Physicality

We had not expected this trek to be so physical, but we walked and hiked over 14,000 steps (equating to about 7 miles) over hilly and uneven terrain. So, if you go, and we highly recommend all fans of GoT go, really check your physicality, stamina, and endurance levels! Oh, and it would serve you well to take along a tube of our gel product for any tired or sore muscles you experience—you can order from me (comment for more info).

We were pleased that we had the stamina to do it though, as it was quite the extraordinary experience! And yes, we had some small tubes of product with us, but had I known how sore my legs and feet were going to be, I would have taken the larger tube with us!

Love the show even more now

After experiencing several of the site locations, and hearing about how the extras often carried set items or equipment on foot to each of these locations (because the first season had a lower budget), it gave us new respect as to how it all got done. And now we can really imagine how difficult it was.

The lunch menu. We all preordered. Think the restaurant was called the Lobster Pot.
Lunch. My Guinness in a wooden mug. 😉
Best seafood chowder I had the whole 18 days of our trip!

After lunch, we had great joy meeting the actual dogs that were used to portray (with CGI help), the Stark family’s Dire wolves.

From the Winterfell site, we hiked a loop to see a couple more locations. First, the infamous hanging tree, then the expansive views where several waters edge and water landings scenes were shot.

The hanging tree. It was so creepy!!
Hiked to Audleys castle
I am enjoying the views they filmed many of the sea or water landings.

Final stop

At the last stop, Inch Abbey, (after we were quite worn out from the day), we were all invited to dress up with actual clothes and props from GoT and play among the ruins. I did my best to make some mean faces (not good at that), and make believe for awhile. The end of a grand tour!

Easing and releasing emotions while playing a game!

Easily release emotions with game play

I had a huge clearing (emotional release) take place yesterday while playing“Fast Track Technique for Kidz” game with my friend and skilled certified practitioner, Dr. Susan Spilman.

I felt amazing then and still do now!

What an energizing and high vibe (vibration raising) experience! Susan told me that children and adults, (no matter the language they speak), can release emotions (even stored emotions they may not consciously be aware they’re holding), by playing this easy and FUN “game.”

Sheila and Susan Spilman with Fast Track for Kidz

The game worked on my Central meridian and I felt the GodBumps ripple down my spine, out my shoulders and arms, and a few moments later, down and out my legs and feet! My vibration was sooo high from playing this game and using the clearing method that my face became rosy! After leaving, I was able to meet up with additional friends (that my previous mind chatter might have talked me out of), visit with them for a couple of hours, drive over 100 miles home, talk with my husband, and stay up hours longer than usual with lasting vibrant energy! ❤️

As you know, I have been practicing and teaching Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) for years, but what I experienced yesterday was incredibly FAST and extremely easy! No tapping required! This “game” does everything I have been seeking, as far as showing us how we all have choices! (Go back to my home page to understand: https://SheilaMurrey.net)

Though I am a highly sensitive person (HSP) and empath, and didn’t feel I was carrying around any emotional baggage, I played the game just to see what I might uncover. And wow!

This game can help calm a child whose been bullied, comfort a sad one, ease one into playing on a team with others, or help inspire a lonely child or adult to engage and connect with others!

As an only child who was often picked last during team sports when I was a child, I revisited that old feeling of loneliness (for a couple minutes during this game play) and felt those old feelings lighten and disintegrate! No wonder I love inclusivity and Connection as an adult! Wow! Shocker! Hahahaha ❤️🤣

I want to be certified in this technique! That’s how much of an impact it made on and IN me. And it’s such an easy and FUN “game.”

Connect with Susan here: https://www.susanspilman.com/

And learn about this incredible technique here:

https://www.ftt4kidz.com/

I just taught one of my 2.5 year old granddaughters the motion we used yesterday (instead of the tapping points) when on video chat I saw her sucking her thumb and twirling her hair. She copied me (and removed her thumb out of her mouth)! I already see how exciting this technique will be to teach! ❤️😉

UPDATE: I got certified on Nov. 27, 2019!!

Change of perspective – RV Living

RV Living

After 8.5 years of full-time RV living in Florida in a 2010 Carriage Carri-Lite 5th wheel, our automatic transfer switch melted yesterday totally changing our perspective on RVing.

Now, here’s the thing. We didn’t know we had a transfer switch or where it was. And it was poorly placed–hidden under the floor, had plywood around it, and was literally sitting on wood shavings! (It made for a real tinderbox situation.) Oh, and it was 2-3 feet from the head of our bed above it! (This is what it looked like after we unscrewed and removed two wood panels.)

Yes, even when we opened our basement (underneath) storage, there were plywood panels that had no labels on them as to what was behind them.

Documentation

I got out the RV owner’s manual and there was nothing diagramed or documented about it! And the RV manufacturer went out of business a year after we bought the 5th wheel, so there’s that.

The dealer we bought it from, Lazy Days in Seffner, Florida near Tampa, has never stood behind anything that’s went wrong with this coach since day one!

Yesterday, an electrician who just happened to be at our mobile home / RV park, and my husband literally had to sniff to find it (I couldn’t smell anything burning but they did). This was after our power went completely off. No AC power, no DC.

Could have burned

We shudder to think we could have been killed in this rig.

And we have no recourse!

I found there was a recall on the transfer switch, but nobody notified us! I say the dealer is culpable!!!

And nearly 600 people are potentially also living in a death trap!

Reading from the nhtsa.gov PDF about the recall it states:

Manufacturers voluntarily initiate many of these recalls, while others are either influenced by NHTSA investigations or ordered by NHTSA via the courts . If a safety defect is discovered, the manufacturer must notify NHTSA, as well as vehicle or equipment owners, dealers, and distributors . The manufacturer is then required to remedy the problem at no charge to the owner . NHTSA is responsible for monitoring the manufacturer’s corrective action to ensure successful completion of the recall campaign .

What is this quality inspection good for?!?

Thus, this experience has us rethinking our living situation.

Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions as to what we should do? Legal recourse?

Be careful out there!

 

We Are All Connected. OM

Many blessings to you in ALL ways.

Movie Review: Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody

I loved the many Bohemian Rhapsody movie reviews I’ve read from my WordPress community! I haven’t written any movie reviews until… now! 😉

The following are my notes, written from that emotionally charged place (the goal of all filmmakers–to get you in touch with your emotions), after leaving the theater yesterday:

Initial thoughts after leaving the theater:

The emotion of it just hit me. I need some time…

Just beautiful! Really. Go see it! 😭❤️🦋🌀

20 minutes after:

As a long time fan of Queen since my teenage years, I loved it! And hubby (a musician, but not a long-time fan) loved it too, from story, acting, digital production, musicianship, music business, band family, etc.

Bohemian Rhapsody the movie was sooooo well done. Wembley is so amazing! My heart went right out of my chest! Freddie, Rami Malek was aWEsOMe!!! ❤️❤️❤️

An hour after:

The reporter scene is haunting me. Why the need to focus on Freddie? Get into his head? Psychoanalyze him? Ugh! An important moment that I hope people pay attention to the effects of all that. The production of that scene, oh!

Obviously, still processing this. Just go see it. ❤️😘

Three hours after:

Freddie’s sexuality and disease were handled with care, empathy, and compassion, and not exploited. In fact, the interview scene continues to haunt me.

The Wembley stadium Live Aid concert was amazing!!!

The film was more than accessible, highly engaging, and ultimately a profound story of unconditional friendship and love (of which. I feel Freddie approves). ❤️🦋🌀

12 hours after:

I awoke in the middle of the night with Queen’s Fat Bottomed Girls song playing in my head and wondering why, since Brian May wrote it, not Freddie.

I recall that as I dropped off to sleep, I’d been thinking about how many of Queen’s hit songs were written by Freddie.

I remembered the God bumps I had powerfully received during the movie.

Perhaps, as Freddie and the band said, they were “Family.”

Freddie wrote songs to connect people. As he said, he was a performer. Ah, I think he was a connector.

My mind swirls, I am unsettled.

Is this the real life?

Nothing really matters.

–Lyrics from Bohemian Rhapsody

Hours pass:

Thoughts twirl.

Are we dancing on the edge of perception?

No judgment.

Just observing. Always observing.

From an emotionally unsettled place. OM

❤️🦋🌀😘✌️
