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!

I also often consider how grateful I am that my mind and body work in unison. And that my mind is improving with age, because I love a challenge!

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 Omniscience, divine Love and the wisdom of ALL the masters I have learned from, along with my ancestors and relatives in the Grand Beyond and my Third Eye, 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. She’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

The house that Sheila built

House of lives

The house that Sheila built is not a house in the physical sense, but a house of Connected Persons. Persons who are Connected to me spiritually and soulfully. These are people who are of the utmost importance to me. The VIPs of my life!

Perhaps this is a sort of moral inventory I am making here, but as a store has inventory, my “house” is made up of all the dear people I have had the immense pleasure to know (and have known). As an only child, I am humbled and surprised at the number of incredible people who have and continue to walk the road of life with me. Hmm, what a thought!

Husband

I’ve heard it said that as we age friendship with our spouse, or significant other, is more important than physical attraction (or sex). I agree.

If you are lucky enough to meet and marry your soulmate, then there’s that. And it’s really beautiful if you can bring as much happiness to this person as you do for yourself.

My husband, Richard, is truly my soulmate and “love of my life.” ❤️🙏😘

My first two marriages ended badly, and while I learned life lessons from both relationships, I regret the hurt and pain. I can’t turn back time. And for my part, and yes, each person owns some of the responsibility of failing in those situations (no one is really better than another when it comes right down to it), but for some, that takes years to see. Thus, I am sorry. I thought I did my best, but we can’t see what we can’t SEE.

Children and grandchildren

It takes children to make grandchildren. Thus, it seems I should speak of my own children next, but no. Reason being, I wasn’t as soulfully “aware” of the profound Connection I had to my children when they were young.

So, let me tell you about the deep soul Connection I have with my eldest granddaughter, Jennifer Ann. My relationship with her best represents how nuanced and intricately interlaced ALL of our Connections are (though for the most part, unacknowledged).

My story with Jennifer goes back 10 years…

I was working in Boca Raton, Florida. I still remember taking my cell phone outside and walking up and down the hall while breathing with my daughter while she was in labor with Jennifer. I missed Jennifer’s actual birth, but treasure my memories of helping my daughter with her childbirth breathwork (it turned out that Jennifer had to be born via C-section anyway).

Anyway, as soon as I could, I took a few days off and flew to New Hampshire, so I could comfort my daughter and meet my new granddaughter. Oh, she was an indescribable JOY to hold!

Throughout my visit, I observed (and felt) the spiritual Connection between Jennifer and myself. I explained the experience in my book as follows:

When I held Jennifer, I felt an immense resonance – truly representative of “Unconditional Love and LIMITLESS Source Energy.”

I spoke these words to Jennifer, “I know who you are. You are pure positive Source Energy”, and at the precise moment the word “energy” left my lips, Jennifer whipped her head around – so much so that it surprised me – and looked me straight in the eye! The look she gave me as our eyes met seemed to ask, “How did you know”?

Murrey, Sheila. “Take It Upon Yourself to Live a Wholly Vibrant Life!” Apple Books.

Next, when my twin granddaughters were born, I flew to New Hampshire again, but this time I had to challenge myself to drive in the snow and ice over an hour from the airport to the hospital. I’d do it all over again though, as to stay in the hospital with my daughter and her girls the first 3 days of their lives was a priceless experience!

While holding my twin granddaughters those first days, I felt the nearly indescribable love and soul Connection with each of them that I’d felt (and continue to feel), with Jennifer.

At the end of one of my visits, I had instinctively swirled my fingers towards both girls in an energetic spiral manner, and both Jaclyn and Jewel had loved it.

On a subsequent visit, one of the twins, Jewel, had began twisting and twirling a lock of her hair. At that moment, however subconsciously, Integrated Spiral was birthed in me.

I didn’t acknowledge or realize my previous spiral energy actions had made any influence on the girls until Jewel began twirling her hair.

I thought about the times when my two children were babies and my dad had swirled his finger towards their bellies and said, “bory bory” (we still don’t know why or what it means), and they would coo! Children are sooo easily mesmerized!

Coming back around full circle to my children, I love my daughter and son dearly. I cannot imagine who I’d be, or even if I would still be alive at this point, had they not come into my life when they did. I grew up in multitudinous ways with them. ❤️

Extended family

We don’t pick these folks, but love them or not, they can teach you invaluable life lessons if you are open to receive. So, judge not.

We all seem to switch places as the years go on, and you really don’t know who will come through for you when you least expect it and need them most.

Mentors

I’ve written a previous blog (here), some years ago about the exquisite mentors I have had the privilege to know, work for, and befriend. I do not believe I could have progressed in my life and career without their brilliant advice, support, and friendship.

Everyone should have a mentor and in turn, mentor someone. It is a rich relationship, that reaps lifelong benefits, well beyond money. A mentor can bring balance and stability, by bringing new awareness and offering you different perspectives.

Often the old saying is true, it’s not what you know, it’s who you know.

Friends

When I was young, I always befriended those who were not immediately accepted by others.

I have always stood up for the underdog. And I have been bullied for it.

When the first black family moved to our town, I befriended the children. They were sooo friendly and we got along famously!

I went home and mentioned to my folks how much I enjoyed their company and my mom was fine with me inviting them over, then my dad said, “you can be friends, but nothing more (like dating).”

It was the first I knew of racism, and it really perplexed and bewildered me! I felt the pain of conflicted thoughts, emotionally.

Thankfully, dad changed many of his views before he left this earth, but the memory of that emotional hurt still lingers. My mom was much more open to discussing race with me because of our native American ancestry. (I am of mixed ethnicity.)

Though my complexion is light, I consider ALL my brothers and sisters. It is also why I wrote this:

“Dancing with the Energy,

In the pinpoint center of the spiral,

She came alone with no siblings.

But as she unwound herself, the spiral emerged.

Then, she harmonized with many, and THEY became her siblings.” ❤️🦋🌀

To this day, I hold my true friends near and dear to my heart. I love that my circle of friends include beautiful hearts and souls of every race, creed, religion, sexual orientation, political affiliation, etc.

Sheila’s poem, “Dancing with the Energy” – screen capture from her Clubhouse bio.

I choose friends based on their heart, and the soul Connection I feel when I am with them (even if only by voice).

Yes, interestingly, some of my dearest friends I haven’t even met in person. We’ve only met by phone on Clubhouse or on Zoom. Soul Connections do not rely on the physical. Isn’t that intriguing?

Colleagues

After having spent 30 plus years in Information Technology, I have gotten to know and spent many days, weeks, months, and years working with many excellent colleagues. And I do mean, excellent people. I am thrilled to have formed lasting friendships with several.

Many continue to Connect with me (even if initiated for a reference—but always to chat about a bit more than superficial things). I am always happy to hear from them. Giving out professional references is one way I can “give back” in honor of the help and advice my mentors always graciously gave me.

In particular, I want to thank the many “scary smart” folks I had the pleasure of getting to know, and working with at:

  • The Veterans Administration on the VETSNET team (4 years, 4 months) of employees and contractors from Liberty, Booz Allen Hamilton, Halfaker, and others, while employed by Advanced Systems Design (ASD).
  • Emerson Process Management (3 years)
  • Jabil Circuit
  • AT&T Mobility
  • Walt Disney World, Parks & Resorts Operations
  • Campus Management
  • Florida Virtual School
  • US Air Force Space Wing (2)
  • NASA, Space Gateway Support, and InDyne Inc. at Kennedy Space Center (5)
  • Lone Star College
  • OnSource Consulting, Inc.
  • Ellucian (4)
  • Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (10)

Acquaintances

Smile. Be nice or at least kind to everyone you meet. You really never know when or where people will pop back into your life.

I have had some people show back up in my life (from seemingly unimportant encounters), that have utterly astonished me. People coming back into my life that proved to me that metaphysical, magic or supernatural powers are indeed at work—often. There’s simply been too many bizarre and uncanny incredibly timed encounters for me to simply chalk these kinds of experiences up as “coincidences.”

In closing

I believe (because I’ve witnessed it), that everyone moves along at differing rates of speed. And thinking that thought helps me when I don’t understand another’s perspective. As well, my mantra of Everything Resolves to Gratitude helps me a lot too!

I choose to hang with uplifting souls to help mySelf! It simply FEELS great! ❤️🦋🌀〰️

The more things change, the more they seem to circle back (and stay the same).

So, I would like to offer the main intention I bring into each relationship, and yes, at the start of each day and in any difficult moment:

To offer a way to open your mind to receive the Connected nature of it ALL.

How many times has your concept of God changed?

Contemplating the many different concepts of God I’ve held…

I doubt I am the only person to change their mind (at least once), of who and what God is.

Thus, I pose this question to you?

Who or what is God?

If you have read any of my previous posts about God, Omniscience, Jesus, and such, you know the name I use most for God (other than God), is Omniscience. That is because of the glimpses I have seen and lessons I’ve learned from my loved ones who live on the Other Side (of The Veil), or Grand Beyond.

How many times has your concept of God changed?

As I work to complete my 4th book, I get into these kinds of moods, or deep contemplations. And this time, I wanted to ask your thoughts, insomuch as you may be willing to share.

Interconnectedness

We have been so caught up in being independent individuals that we have forgotten the vital importance of being interdependent cosmic beings co-creating an interconnected cosmos.

EGO = Edging God Out

Whenever you feel the need to be right, that’s your personal Ego—Edging God Out.

Yet, there’s multitudinous perspectives!

God is LIMITLESS unconditional LOVE!

Feel that. Breathe and really FEEL that.

❤️🦋🌀〰️

I don’t have to be right.

But, I can always (ALL ways) feel good.

I am an extractor of knowledge, juicing and synthesizing the best information from all religions, philosophies, and practices the world over to help you live the best life ever!

God is Everywhere

God is Everywhere… Creation changes every day. We change, growing or decaying every day. Flowers grow, bloom, wilt, fall, and decay. We get the circle of life, don’t we?

Everything changes.

Everyone is supported and no one is alone, but we can choose to cut ourselves off from God (just as Adam and Eve tried to hide from God in the Garden of Eden–but it was impossible to do so).

God is Everywhere and is expressing gifts through you (whether you know it or not)!

God is being it, pulsing it, Energy. And most of us are consciously closed off to God. But sometimes we open and allow God’s Energy to express a small, tiny amount through, like a pin prick to an enormous sheet or covering. When we do that, ALL of Heaven rejoices!

Consider expanding your view of God today. It actually does seem like something Jesus would do.

Many blessings to you in ALL ways. 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.

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.

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!

❤️🦋🌀〰️🎼☯️🙏☮️😘

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!🔥❤️🦄🌀🔥

I love you, but

Reflections on love and actions

Two years ago, after the death of my dad, I wrote this as I was pondering how we love others, or say we do, but our actions may not reflect love:

I love you, but

I love you, but I have to do XYZ to fulfill some need.
I love you, but you’ll never know everything about me.
I love you, but I don’t have the wherewithal to be considerate of what you may have to deal with when I’m gone.
I love you, but I’m busy.
I love you, but I don’t know what I can do to help you.
I love you, but I have my own life.
I love you, but I am still learning.
I love you, but I haven’t polished my crystal ball to know what you need.
I love you, but though I talk to everyone in the world and should know how to ease the process you will go through after I die, I don’t think I will die, so there’s no need to set everything up, pre-need funeral/cremation/burial, right of survivorship, etc. it can be done another day.
I love you, but I don’t live for you.
I love you, but as mad as you may get at me, you’ll learn your own lessons from this.
I love you, but this experience will cause you to consider your loved ones more.
Hugs and kisses!

In reflection

I shared this piece with friends on Facebook at the time, to meager response. And it wasn’t important to me how many saw it, liked, or loved it. My best friend from 4th grade (who always “gets me” responded and this is what I replied to her:

Thank you for “seeing” me. For “seeing” my process and intent through this post. I am happy to report that I was only angry for a very short while. The anger that is a part of grief. Mom and dad did the best they could with the information they understood at the time. 

So, yes, I was making notes of the thoughts that came as I proceeded to find the lesson for me in all of this. I can’t change what was done/not done, but I can sure set things up now for my kids, so they don’t have to pay out of pocket and go through probate, etc. when I leave this earth. 

Healing

It has been healing for me to separate my emotions from the actions that occurred by journaling the various things I learned through this so-called “death” process. 

You know, mostly there is only an earthly death. At least I believe it’s only the physical stuff that dies. Our love, soul, and spirit lives on. And that gives me hope and a way to see beyond all the mundane.

I want to add that I hope this helps someone because we don’t know what we don’t know. 

Funeral home arrangements, and why pre-need is important

Now, that was two years ago and it is time for me to follow through and setup my own pre-need natural burial arrangements. 

I never knew that funeral homes could charge you money to see your loved one after they take the body.

Yes, there are questions one should ask before allowing a funeral home to take a body.

In our case, my adult son found my dad, (he had passed away in his sleep), and while we were driving the 2.5 hours to get to where they lived, the sheriff deputies had already done their job and a funeral home had picked up my dad’s body. By the time we arrived at the funeral home, they said I would have to pay them $200 if I wanted to see my dad! That’s something people never tell you.

Also, it was the funeral home, not the sheriff’s office, who kept everything in a locker that they had taken out of my dad’s pockets (as apparently he had slept in his clothes and had loose cash in different pockets, not only in his wallet). And the funeral home didn’t offer to give me my dad’s personal possessions, nor was I of a mind to ask, when they were asking me for $200!

Had I known, I would have given them the $200 dad had on his person (which I had to go back and ask for two weeks later after someone suggested I ask). It’s just something that nags at me, like an open loop. I know I may not have wanted to see my dad’s body, my son told I wouldn’t, but I can’t help but feel if I had known what was in dad’s pockets, I would have paid the funeral home their “fee.”

Speaking of funeral homes, be prepared to pay something out of your own pocket for your family member, otherwise they will not even pick up the body. And most don’t offer ANY arrangements, not even cremation, (and not including any viewing or service), for less than $2,000 (in the USA).

Let me know in the comments if you want to know more like this and I’ll write another article. I don’t want to be morbid.

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. ❤️🦋🌀🎼〰️🙏☯️🌅💦🌱🌳🌴🌲

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

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.
