I truly see where I’ve been moving into the 5th density of experience since 2005.
In the beginning
I became aware something profound was happening to me when I started getting GodBumps while talking about Conscious Living, expanding awareness, Christ Consciousness, raw vegan foods, Spirituality, etc. with coworkers. And I have been on a quest to discover “WHY” ever since.
When you really GET Jesus (or the Christ, or Buddha, etc.) you no longer need the church, temple, etc. Going can be invigorating or fun, but you don’t need it.
You’ll find church to be wherever you hang out with others of like-mind and they will uplift you.
You don’t have to be brainwashed or programmed into a certain rigidity. Too narrow of a focus can lead to separation.
If you want to experience the love of unity, apply and integrate what you’ve learned into your day to day. Practices do not need to become rituals, but deeper awareness while performing daily tasks. Pray without ceasing. Seek the meaning and lesson from every interaction.
Continue to become aware of your own virtues; the highest ideals and values of your life.
When you really GET why you came to live in a body, you’ll no longer need teachers or coaches. You can have fun with them and continue layering knowledge and wisdom gained into your system, but mostly everything you need to know can flow into you, if you are open to receive. Be an open vessel.
Layer upon layer new techniques or such, but understand why you are taking care of your body. You’ll live a wholly vibrant life!
Reasons people leave Church
Outgrow it – see through the programming
Have been offended
Not being told the Truth
Been traumatized or abused
Bashing other churches or faiths
Questioned too much
Gossip / slander
Now, don’t kill the thought messenger for pointing these things out. You are more than sheeple!
Our bodies are our temple
Having cleaned a branch church building for months and then being told to leave during a storm when shelter was needed, showed my mom which side those “good church members” were on—and it was not God’s. I could see right through them, though it took mom a bit longer to come around to that knowing. Those hypocrites were living in fear of the insurance company!
Ah, split energies! Know this: Jesus didn’t preach in churches!
Choose you this day how you will feel, and whom you will serve. Find your inner tranquility in each moment.
My being-ness resonated with this video.
I appreciated Neale’s transparency and Eckhart’s powerful stillness (even while he was speaking), as contradictory as that seems.
Bliss. Yes, the more we integrate and allow our Spirit to lead (instead of our Ego), in our daily activities, the more we feel it and know the truth of us.
No graven images
Why no graven images?
Primarily because graven images remind us of the past. And we are to live in the present moment. The dead do not need shrines. And everything man-made will be destroyed in the end. Everything is temporary.
God is ever-living Omniscience
Are you smarter than God? You think you are if you presume to know how God wants you to worship a particular religion. The knowing or “path” to LIMITLESS Source Energy Creator is a narrow one because most find it too difficult to let go of earthly material possessions and simply be present in every situation.
#Namaste #GodInYou #Holism
We are much more than we see. We are Spirit focused like a laser light beam into a physical body, with a lot of unseen energy round about us. ❤️🦋🌀
I pose this question to you: Where do I end and you begin?
What’s the outcome?
The Grand Beyond
Ah! The bliss and joy I feel when I imagine what the heavenly realm of the Grand Beyond is!
I imagine all the beautiful sunrises and sunsets one sees from the expansive view from the Grand Beyond.
What might it be like to reconnect with my loved ones in the Grand Beyond…
Even if I am not with my loved ones in the Grand Beyond after my Continuation Day, perhaps I will go on to create a new galaxy where many can enjoy the earthly fruits of their labor. And my loved ones can gaze upon that galaxy with awe. They may choose to join also!Oh, what a heavenly and splendid galaxy it will be!
I am writing a metaphysical novel that will explore the nature of these things, but for now, I will leave you with this:
When we wake from sleeping with a song in our head, sometimes even seeing famous people singing a song we’ve never heard before (and for some, they jump up and write the song), where does that come from?
Continuing on with the sharing of thoughts and pictures from our June/July 2019 vacation to Europe, this post covers our three days in England. During these three days we covered a lot of ground, literally and figuratively!
The tour took us to Bath, Lacock, Avebury, West Kennet Long Barrow, and Stonehenge (which was abSOULutely phenomenal!) plus, we explored Glastonbury (the Abbey, Tor, and Chalice Well) and also got to have a quick stop in the tiny town of Wells, home to one of the grandest of cathedrals!
Thursday July 4
We arrived in Bristol, England and had a bus (for our group), take us on about an hour’s drive to Bath, England.
In Bath, we stayed at the Apex Bath hotel. We had a wonderful room and comfortable bed. We had walked so much in Ireland that we were really appreciative to have the rest of this day to “just BE.”
We walked through town and marveled at the architecture of the cathedral.
We dined at the famous Sally Lunn’s—home of Sally Lunn’s Buns. Our group believes Sally’s is haunted, as one of our gals experienced some odd happenings while she was in the restroom! She heard the door open, and water run in the sink, and door close, but no footsteps and no talking!
Our food was delicious and even months later, as I write this, I can still recall the feeling and experience of the place.
Picture of us in front:
Friday July 5
On this morning, we enjoyed breakfast at the hotel and afterwards met author, Andrew Phillip Smith. He presented interesting information from his book, The Lost Teachings of the Cathars. I have not read his book, but he certainly seemed an expert on the topic.
In the Languedoc area of Southern France, the Cathars met in groups and did not build churches. They were peaceful, educated, believed in equality of men and women and the early pure teachings of Jesus before being massacred by the Catholic Church in the Albigensian crusade. As well, we learned that the Cathars were celibate (called, Perfects) and confessed to each other in front of believers. Once a Perfect met their Perfect other, they went to Kingdom of Heaven (didn’t need to reincarnate into another vessel or creature). In 1209 something important happened (Reference to my 1212 life that I found out about while in Sedona.)
Supposedly, Mary Magdalene was alone with Jesus at the temple, the well, and in the garden. May not have married him but may have been his Perfect. They wouldn’t have had physical sex though, as that was not the belief or way at the time. This would have put the Cathars at odds with the Catholics.
Cathars believed in Laying on of hands (Refer to the story of the horse-lost shoe between to stones/horshoe over the door); Reference the Nag Hammadi; During the Inquisition we learned about the Cathars (so something good came out of it, yes something good can even come out of the Inquisition!). He even said Adam and Eve were not able to move until the spirit went into them!
While somewhat fascinating, I couldn’t help pinch myself a few times though, as I looked out the windows of the hotel. I was simply in awe to be in England. ❤️
We walked through town again to catch another tour bus to go to Lacock (where Harry Potter was filmed), Avebury, West Kennet Long Barrow, Woodhenge, and finally, to Stonehenge. Honestly, I could write one whole article on my experience at Stonehenge, it was that amazing and phenomenal.
At Lacock, Richard and I walked and talked with our driver who was a retired police officer. He told us some stories about how their criminal justice system operated and that people aren’t allowed to own guns there. We were very interested in the architecture and way of life of the villagers of Lacock. Even the barn was very well taken care of. Walking these aged streets were certainly a walk back in time.
We ended our walk at the church and Patricia asked me to come and see an important memorial of a young mother and children.
West Kennet Long Barrow
A short drive later, we arrived at West Kennet Long Barrow (a neolithic tomb built around 3,650).
We played with taking photos and theorizing about these stones. I happily spied on two birds atop one of the stones at the entrance to the chamber and remarked to Patricia, “One has a feather stuck on its beak”! It wasn’t a busy place that day, so it was relaxing. And we liked that we could touch everything, which heightened my curiosity and made it all the more informative.
We joked about desiring to see a crop circle here, and wildly enough, a couple of weeks after we left, we read about a crop circle appearing near this place! “Missed it by that much”!
Next, we spent a few hours at Avebury, exploring the largest megalithic stone circle in the world! Again, we were intrigued by the “flesh” type of texture to these humongous stones. We marveled at the placement of the stones and the various “growths” on their surface.
We learned that Avebury is also a henge, as Stonehenge is and were further intrigued. Since our visit, we have become quite hooked on the topic!
After leaving Avebury, we stopped along the road for a fantastic lunch at a place called, The Waggon and Horses. Not only was the food savory and delicious, but the building charmed me with delight!
Before arriving at Stonehenge, we made a quick stop at Woodhenge. We learned that the wood markers had been placed where stones had once been.
I will summarize to state that I felt the energy affecting me before we even reached the stones, as we rode the park bus out to the stones, and more while walking to the stones.
I noticed our shadows and took this artsy “giants” shot:
As the sun was setting and I entered the stone circle, I felt a strong yet calm energy as I took each meaningful step. I felt an indescribable connection to this sacred site!
Walking inside this megalithic stone circle was deeply personal and most intriguing. Even now, looking at the photos as I write this, brings me back INTO engagement with those feelings.
After taking pictures and video of the sunset, I found a mostly buried blue healing stone (that Pharon had told me about earlier). I sat very near one of the blue stones and was blissfully surprised at how quickly I dropped into a meditative state.
My few minutes of meditation within the inner circle at Stonehenge was profound! I was quite surprised after leaving there to learn that my husband had taken a picture of myself and some of our others while we were meditating! Love!
Note: Even now, I continue to connect to that stone when meditating at home.
Saturday July 6
Today (on the date of my daughter’s birthday), I was a bit emotional because of not being with her, but also because I was out of the country and not able to talk with her. In English tradition though, I put my chin up and trekked on, as we had a lot to see!
We made a quick stop in Wells, England’s smallest city. And we were all astonished at the sight we saw there!
We left the hotel at 8am for a full day in Glastonbury (where it is believed that Joseph of Arimathea and King Arthur may be buried); we had our second past life regression out back of the Abbey and before the group tour of the Abbey.
My husband, Richard, had been dealing with a hip that was hurting, so we didn’t go on the Abbey tour, but I felt that was all in divine time. As it happened, a friend had lost her green Prasiolite crystal after our regression session and I was available to walk with her, help look for it, and have some time to talk. Had Richard not have needed to rest, I would not have been available.
The grounds here were spectacular. I covered a lot of ground myself taking in the roses and other flowers growing on the walls and looking for meaningful items.
I spent quite awhile in the Abbey’s museum and was immediately drawn to these blue glass fragments (reminiscent of the luminous blue stones I had seen in my first regression session in Glendalough—see part 1 post).
Before leaving we had a few minutes to shop and find some gifts for my granddaughters and myself. 😉
We walked into town for lunch and had a delicious meal at a cafe where we had quiche and English tea.
We left about 1pm for the Chalice Well, England’s most loved and well known holy well that is believed to possess healing qualities). On the way to our tour bus, I spied my synchronistic blue on one of the buildings! I tell you, I didn’t miss a beat of receiving all of the subtle winks from the Universe I was given on this trip!
Our guide for this day took us up a side street to The White Spring where back in the day, commoners could gather water (the rest runs down under the grate beside the street.) He also took us in the building (that isn’t always open), where we could see The Red Spring—and as our luck would have it, we even saw a nude man after his dip in the spring! LOL Oh, my! (No photography was allowed in there and we know why!)
Richard and I took one look at the hill and decided to stay at the bus with our driver, Richard, and talk about the legends and more with him. To us, connecting with those who live in these places are more important than the buildings and such. We enjoyed talking about the sheep and such too, and he prepared a lovely cheese and cider snack for us all after the rest of our group returned. Totally unexpected and delightful!
Back in Bath
Wrapping it up, we spent several hours at the Roman Baths museum in Bath. We were amazed by how much was here and I could write another article on all we discovered here! It was one of the biggest surprises of our trip, as we didn’t know much about this at all and had no idea that we would be so mesmerized by it all, from the engineering and architecture, to the art! We knew Romans were intelligent, but obviously much more than we had thought!
Note: As destiny would have it, out of 30,861 applications I won the lottery entry into the Newgrange neolithic chamber for the 2019 winter solstice sunrise! We are sooo excited to return to Ireland!

A bit about me:
An Amazon bestselling author of two co-authored books: “Transform Your Life Book 2 Inspirational Stories and Expert Advice” and “Energy of Receiving”, available on Amazon.
How would YOU love to work at a job that your soul was in alignment with? You’d be passionate about such work, wouldn’t you? Working at a place where you really felt excited and part of the mission? I bet you’d be ready to get up before the alarm rang. I bet you’d wake up and feel like you were playing all day while performing each task.
Now, if that were the scenario, wouldn’t that be your DREAM JOB?
What my dream job looks like
My dream job is to provide social media outreach, SEO, writing, editing, graphics, emcee events, or ANYTHING that helps to EXPAND ALL of the following: holistic health and wellness, acupuncture, chiropractic, expanding consciousness, healing our bodies naturally, hope, faith, nutrition, living foods, meditation & mindfulness, spirituality, daily connection with Omniscience, loving kindness, hypnosis, metaphysics, physics (think Nassim Haramein), and the nature of reality.
So, for starters I am launching my brand on Oct. 7, 2019 at the Women, Wine, and Wellness – Brevard Chapter event at 6:30pm!
Here’s your invite:
Because my dream is to fully embody and teach personal responsibility in a holistic way for consistently improving the health, vibrancy, and longevity of ALL, as We Are All Connected. This is the legacy I want to live and leave to my children and granddaughters. ❤️🦋🌀
I see everyone with the ability to possess a real passion for life, via integrating holistic health & wellness techniques into each day (in one way or another); I believe everyone can truly LIVE a wholly vibrant life!
I desire to live and work IN joy each day, using my empathic, intuitive, compassionate, positive, loving, caring, genius abilities and REALLY make a difference in people’s lives!
What’s stopping me?
I don’t think any one thing stops me, per se. I think splitting my energy to work a “day job” slows me down, but also, helping my husband market his original music, and playing “that game”, distracts me from my true calling–though my feeling has been that by helping him, building relationships, and being around lots of music (because sound is healing), also helps me to “not take myself sooo seriously” and allows me time to PLAY!
I do my own integral spiritual and physical practices daily by blending qigong, yoga, meditation, push-ups, squats, etc. into a morning routine that supports me mind-body-spirit, and then gives me the juice to align with my soul and Connect with others, on and off my “day job.” (Plus, I finally have a day job that directly supports our U.S. Veterans and when I focus on helping them, and saving the VA money, that brightens and uplifts me too!)
I could improve my sales skills (but only in a heart-based, compassionate way), and perhaps gain some insight into how to stay focused. Yes, I have taken an in-depth Stephen Covey course. So, I know how to fill in the slow time of my day with small actions, the “little rocks” approach to time management–and that’s helped me accomplish all I have thus far!
What I bring to the table:
I use Microsoft Office (which includes, Word, Excel, Visio, and more), various webinar and video conferencing tools like Skype, Zoom, and Google Hangout, and development tools of WordPress, Dreamweaver, Illustrator, Photoshop, HTML, SQL.
Yes, I am a techie. But, as an empath, I am a caring techie! ❤️🦋🌀☯️🙏😉
I also bring 33 years of research and analytical skills to the table, and when I daydream, I end up making little notes like these:
I’d love to partner with someone to CREATE a similar jobs board focused specifically for the types of jobs (and people I mention on the home page of my Take It Upon Yourself site (https://SheilaMurrey.net).
Memorial Day weekend 2017… finds me so outrageously HAPPY!!!
I’ve been granted the best opportunity of my career thus far, to do what I know and am skilled/educated for–working in Information Technology (IT)–to be in service and support one of the best groups of human BEings I know, our U.S. Veterans! Yes, my years of education and experience will not be lost, but it will all contribute to a mission that I can whole-heartedly accept and honor–to ensure our veterans receive their accurate and proper benefits!
Seeking soul-aligned work
Over the past three years, I became acutely aware that I was in a place that did not align with my spirit or soul. As I watched things happen at my job that were not to my liking, I knew that at a deeper level it was because I was working within a corporate arena that was “part of the problem” vs. “part of the solution.” Not only from my perspective and my indigenous friends, but also of the perspective of those who support the environment and the “green movement.”
I became disillusioned and apathetic. I could blame it on not having my work valued, or this or that person not communicating, not showing up, or not playing by the rules to work within my team, or any other number of nonsensical illusory issues. But at the end of the day, I knew it was because I had never aligned with that corporate mission. I really didn’t.
I had been in quite a quandary! I enjoyed my work and didn’t want to throw away years of education and experience (knowing that Creator God had helped and guided me to all of that over the years), but I knew that I didn’t want to be where I was. I wanted to help people, perhaps even help people heal themselves (as evidenced by this blog site)!
Doing my part
So, I joined several groups over the last three years, went to many MeetUp meetings, talked with lots of friends–old and new, and worked with several uplifting people, like Alaina Starhawk, Maria Carranza, Linda McCarthy, Dr. Alison J. Kay, Lama Nicholas Packard and more, who saw my struggles and encouraged me to allow more ease and grace into my life. They knew the right thing would open for me at the right time–even when I couldn’t wipe the gray clouds away from my eyes to see it.
At the end of the symposium, each participant was given the opportunity to give a 30 second public service announcement (PSA). After watching videos and listening to presenters for about 4 hours during that event, I not only KNEW that I would stand up and talk with those in attendance, but I also knew–with more clarity than ever–what my “problem” was, just not how to solve it. I knew I needed to ask for their help.
My PSA went something like,
My name is Sheila. I work for a major corporation as a Technical Writer. One of the company’s clients is one you would not support. I don’t want to be part of the problem anymore, but I want to be part of the solution. Now, that we’re awakening, where do we go (what portal or job board) to find a way to BE part of the solution? And if no one knows of one, let’s create it! Maybe, Green Jobs 4 You?
Can you help me?
I didn’t know it acutely at that moment, but I was open and ready to receive. I was in a state of resonance to receive.
And I did talk with a couple of people after the event, and I picked up a couple of words that helped me later as I researched to find two job portals similar to what I had been thinking about:
Literally, while walking to the parking lot of Sacred Lands, my friend Beverly Banov Brown, and I were saying good-bye to one another, when she heard me say, “I am going to be out of that place (job) within 30 days.” Compelled, she declared, “Wait” — and asked me to stand squarely in front of her so she could tell me something. I don’t recall if she told me that she was going to pray for me, bless me, or what, but I felt a strong conviction in her statement. So, I turned to her and stood there.
What happened next, seemed much more than a prayer. Beverly’s words seem to stretch into the ether. I want to describe the words she spoke as a Sacred Contract, or Universal Command, or something eternal and powerful. I still don’t know what to label it (nor do I like labels anyway–ha!).
Beverly spoke the Sacred Words to me, calling forth my intention in faith and steadfast BELIEF that “within 30 days…” the change I had so desired would occur.
As earth-shaking as her words sounded to me though, oddly, I left and went on my way, tired from the very long day that I’d had. I was hungry and just wanted to get home and go eat with the hubby. Thus, I promptly forgot about that prayer — until days later, on the morning after I was offered a new position working in support of our veterans!
The new job definitely came in within the 30 days, as Beverly had declared. It had actualized in 10 DAYS. Of course, there was lots of paperwork for me to do, fingerprints, background, and drug screen, etc.
Start date: June 1st
So, here I sit. Outrageously happy and excited to announce that the prayer was answered! And that graciously, my heartfelt desire for meaningful and engaging work in ALIGNMENT with my soul to help people IS happening!
I am resonating with a profoundly grateful and thankful heart to Limitless OMNIPOTENCE Source OMNIPRESENCE Energy OMNISCIENCE Creator God!
A long chapter (full of efforting and lessons learned) closed Friday May 26th, 2017 (synchronistically, on my son’s 35th birthday!), allowing space for a blessed new chapter in the book of my life to begin–AMAZING!!
The new role “that came so effortlessly” to me will have me working from home (100% Remote) in humble service as a Business Analyst.
You bet that I will also continue to promote the Pachamama Alliance too, and continue to learn from the new friends I made at the symposium. Just click on any of the links within this blog article to learn more about each person I’ve named–as well as the Pachamama Alliance.
I would love it if you would take a few minutes to watch the following video about Awakening the Dreamer:
In soul-connected alignment
Finally, I’d like to tell you about one more sign of synchronicity to all of this that shows me I am on the right path for me, at this time. Not many would notice… but one of my first childhood friend’s is named, Beverly Brown. And my friend who carved this spiritual request into the ether of the Universe is named, Beverly Banov Brown! Don’t you just love that? I do!
In humility and service to all,
Check out this original song, The Connection. My husband wrote this song (with some muse from moi) and it was performed and recorded in a Nashville, TN studio. You can download it (it’s Track 14) from this link: https://store.cdbaby.com/cd/chevyfordband2
A bitabout me:

Even folks who have lived a full life, people with a family, a job, education, or all the material things they could ever hope to want, at certain times in their life, question the point of it all.
If you’re sick, lacking motivation, or just feeling blah (like no one cares about you or what you’re doing), this author suggests that you check out some new information.
Change your focus for a couple hours today and consider a new perspective, which just might lead you to discover some new information to help you feel better.
Sometimes, you just have to shake things up a bit! We all know that, right?
If you’d like to know how some have found more meaning or more peace in their lives, keep reading…
This is an open invitation for you to watch a free movie online and open to some new and different information. You don’t have to change. You can stay the way you are. However, if you’d like to feel better, more peaceful, with new meaning and renewed purpose that could actually prompt you to get motivated and do something different in your life, then why not check this out?
Many ways of living over the years have called out to us to seek a certain “path”, or “way of life” in order that we may have life here and now and live it more abundantly. And many people are just fine, content and happy with that one way. But, if you’re reading this, my bet is that you’re not satisfied for one or many reasons.
So, if like me, you find even one of the following people interesting, if just reading their name on the following list resonates with you for any reason, then you might very well enjoy, or even LOVE The Reality of Truth.
Deepak Chopra, M.D.
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
Michael Bernard Beckwith
Bruce H. Lipton
Fabian Michael Piorkowsky
Dr. Fred Travis
Michael “Zappy” Zapolin

Now, I love Michelle Rodriguez from Avatar, Machete, and the Fast and Furious movies. And I remembered her from the TV series, Lost. She’s always been a tough, super hero-like compelling actress. Yet, even if I didn’t get into The Reality of Truth for any other reason–and I love it for many reasons–I’d have enjoyed it just to see Michelle go on this adventure and get to know her in a more close-up, intimate, and genuine way. I feel I know her as a person now, not only as an actress. I cried when she cried. I laughed when she laughed. She talks candidly and openly about her experience–and it’s palpable.
Maybe you don’t know (or don’t like) one or more of the persons named on the preceding list, but you’re still invited to watch and open your heart and mind to receive. Perhaps, you’ll learn a thing or two that will make watching The Reality of Truth not only worth your time, but enhance your life in a priceless way!
If you’re a skeptic, fine. But, how are you feeling today? Isn’t it worth a few minutes to check it out and see if there’s some useful information of which, you’ve never heard?
The Reality of Truth will connect you with thoughtful, enlightening, and energetic people who are challenging old thought patterns and opening to new awarenesses in order to lead us all into more freedom and more joy than we’ve ever thought possible.
Just before the New Year, I had the immense pleasure of doing a bit of “pre-paving” for my future by attending Dr. Alison J. Kay’s, “Your Sensitivity Is Your Power” tele-call series. And wowee!! It was super-charged!
So, what happened after I attended the tele-call series?
I gained a clarity of my own personal power. Almost like I was stepping up a staircase of emotional well-being and balance! Yes, I accepted an invitation from the Universe to step up my personal power by being on these calls, and I’m the better for it!
As a sensitive type of person–in my life having been known as one to cry easily, become overly concerned with other people’s dramas, or get easily overwhelmed, I noticed each day after the tele-call experience, I felt lighter, happier, and less concerned with other people’s “stuff” going on around me!
Sometimes, I tend to feel as though I am carrying the burden of other people so much, that I prefer not to interact with others at all. Much of those feelings lifted after the tele-call series for me, and continue to lift as time goes on.
Traits of empaths
People used to tell me they knew I was naturally empathic. Dr. Kay explained empaths and their traits in great detail during the tele-call series. She let us know how each of us could use our gift of empathy to give us more ease and comfort day-to-day. We learned how to use our sensitive side without losing our sense of self.
After each tele-call, I began to practice any/all of the following each day–whenever any difficult situation or conversation would occur:
Mentally ask myself, “Is this mine?” And, if I knew it was NOT my problem, then I would mentally state, “Return to sender with grace, ease, and love attached, or I would simply state, “Send ’em love” (learned previously, but not practiced much) to really feel the vibrations emanating from my heart (the invisible intelligence Dr. Wayne Dyer used to speak of) going out to the person, lifting my feelings about whatever was going on.
Breathe – really breathe, even take an extra walk as needed, climb stairs, stretch, or meditate. Then at my office desk, self soothe with my Young Living essential oils, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Jin Shin Jyutsu (JSJ), and/or Yamuna Body Rolling — using one ball behind my back and/or putting my bare feet on the foot wakers under my desk. (This has also has enabled me to share these modalities with others when they would ask what I was doing–Yay!)
Distance myself when my inner being tells me, re-soundly, that right NOW (in THIS moment), this person or place is not good for me (or I am not good for others in this space). I honor, respect, and love myself enough, to walk away and go to another place where I can feel good!
Set boundaries. I can choose whether–whatever is happing in this moment–conflicts with what I’ve previously written about (to “Be open to receive”) and to know that I am allowed also, to receive or not. Must I receive all and filter? Must I receive bad to receive good? Maybe. But, I have the power to choose that for myself.
Expand my energy – Each morning include in my meditation to go into my awareness and expand it outward to my family, my circle of influence, neighbors, local community, state, region, country, continent, and world. Celebrate the knowing of others via Twitter, Facebook, my blogs, etc. whom live in other countries. Celebrate this knowing of WE ARE ALL CONNECTED. This is true.
Empower myself. Indeed, put my cape on! 😉 Be my authentic self. Act on the truth that my inner being resonates with, i.e. when I feel my “God bumps”. I even signed up for Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith’s Life Visioning class, no doubt because of how powerful I felt after completing Dr. Kay’s tele-call series! How does it get any better than this? Yay! And later, I signed up for Yamuna classes (see this Examiner article I wrote) to learn about “Body Rolling”.
Though I know, I don’t act like it.It is never necessary to be the victim. I am not trapped. I always have a choice. I break any DNA, biological, mental, or spiritual chains that could have come through my lineage and blood. In the name of our Limitless, Ever-Living, Omniscient, Omnipresent, Omnipotent, Pulsating, Be-ing, Creator Source God who IS the Energy that holds the Universe together. Beyond what we can see. Beyond what we now know. Faith IS the substance of things not yet seen.
Empaths have our own level of sensitivity, level of awareness, unique energetic healing modalities, and spiritual gifts to share with the world! I am ready to share mine!
Clearing the past
The tele-call sessions withDr. Alison J Kay and her empowering messages and clearings, transformed past (even something that happened a moment ago is “the past”) shame of negative actions–allowing me to consciously “let go” of negative limiting thoughts, acknowledging that forgiveness is a daily process. I knew the pain I felt in my body were the cells of my body (scientist Candace Pert proved cells hold memories) calling out for me to transcend and know that really everything IS okay!
Dr. Kay’s clearings tuned me in and provided me with different verbiage to explain to myself, and to you in this post, what had been happening. Healing is an ongoing PROCESS!
How it builds up
Everyday life causes certain connections to occur:
The neighbor who may or may not smile at me when I step outside. That person doesn’t know me.
The store clerk that serves me may ask, “Did you find everything okay?” without really meaning it.
The restaurant owner’s son, who while ignoring us, scolded an employee (the employee was actually attempting to seat us) for not following proper procedures. He didn’t realize they would lose a customer by behaving that way in front of us, instead of just seating us–they could train their staff in private later!
The soldier (police, firefighter, teacher, or other public servant) who is just “doing their job” without considering the moral choices he or she actually has.
We really can get better
Many of us abdicate our ability to choose and lose a moment (or more) of happiness and joy forourselves and others. And we can help others – we really can! If we’re in better shape emotionally, mentally, and physically, we can change the world! And why is that important? Because We Are All Connected!
The energies and what I learned during Dr. Alison J. Kay’s tele-call series for sensitives continues to free me. The time spent on her calls FELT sooo good, not just for a short time, but weeks later.
About Dr. Alison J. Kay
Meditation and yoga teacher Dr. Alison J. Kay, offers weekly group telephone calls, online video-conferencing (Google Hangout), and private sessions where you can learn about meditation techniques. She teaches yoga classes too! Her group fitness classes include: yoga, mind-body, and core-strengthening.
Dr. Alison J. Kay studied in the east, Asia and India and thoroughly knows and understands the basis of the placebo effect (using several modalities, including meditation) and it’s relationship basis of subtle energy.
The tele-call series gave me hope for all of us to continue on our journey, learning and growing every day. To me, there is no such thing as “false hope”. Hope is hope. Because FAITH is the SUBSTANCE of things not yet seen.
I invite you to continue opening your mind to learning about something new in 2016 and beyond. You are never to old to be open to receive new and helpful information.
Be ye blessed in ALL ways.

A bitabout me:
An Amazon bestselling author of two co-authored books:“Transform Your Life Book 2 Inspirational Stories and Expert Advice”and“Energy of Receiving”,available on Amazon.
This blog post is going to attempt to catch the many times that I myself need to “be open to receive.”
I believe teachers, okay, everyone really, should practice what they preach. So here I am, practicing what I preach (read my book chapter, Be Open to Receive for context).
Talking with someone near and dear, he mentions a certain “theory” that has recently been trending on Google. I poo-poo it. Ta-da! What happens? I am doing research on a seemingly unrelated topic for an Examiner article that I’m writing and POOF! The same theory shows up! I begin to feel perplexed. I take a shower and I realize that I must “be open to receive” and at least, research it.
Another day, one of the subjects of my book chapter and I go to lunch. For me, just the very act of going to lunch was “being open.” In fact, due to both of our schedules, the lunch was rescheduled many times!
So, of course, as I imagined would be the case, this person presented me with new insights on several topics. I made notes on my iPhone for further investigation. Later, she presented me with some additional information though, and my first response? I asked, “Did I ask for this”? But just as quick, I realized what I was doing, so I followed with, “thank you, at some point in the future this might be some information I will need, though right now, it is not what I had in mind.”
I have been presented with a challenging opportunity. Okay, it did not present itself quite so elegantly packaged exactly. It came by way of a bit of struggle. Little bit of ranting and complaining occurred here at the old iMac.
In the struggle of attempting to meet the “rules” of a big blog site, I realized I could update this site (or at least open to the idea and explore this as a solution), hence, Take It Upon Yourself gets a shift. Oh JOY! Now, We Are All Connected is born. The page that all of my posts about Limitless Creator, God, Spirit, Energy, and so forth, will be linked. Let’s see if we can have some fun with this!
Isn’t life fascinating? Brilliant? Heart-opening?
I am finding it challenging at times to “be open to receive.” The Universe is showing me that I still say no often, judge, and close doors that I don’t think I need to walk through.
When you let your ego take a back seat to what’s out THERE, all around you, YOU will be amazed how God, Creator, Universe will speak to you.
I nearly feel that every time I open my mouth to judge something, a moment later I might have to eat my words! I write quite a bit about self help issues, no doubt because I need to help myself! So, it should come as no surprise that I’m always in analytical mode. Constantly weighing pros and cons, always finding that change is the only constant in life.
I hope my sharing these struggles and triumphs might help you too.
I over-think, I contemplate, then I allow the Universe to show me. When I’m wrong, I admit it. I am humble. I am living in my head a lot. But I write. Writing is my voice. I am transparent. When you read my words, you see my soul. I hope it helps you. I always want you to Take It Upon Yourself though. Strengthen the fabric that connects us all. Challenge me. Improve us all.
I must say, today has been a ridiculously aWEsOMe day! I’ve just been published, a second time!
Celebrating the book
The book launched on Amazon.com with amazing success… by this evening, yes the end of the first full day – the book “The Energy of Receiving” reached #3 in the Self-Help category, AND #1 in the Self-Help, Spiritual category!!! I, along with my publisher, and the other 16 authors (18 total) who co-created this book are THRILLED!!!
I’m reading my copy of the book and posting a review on Amazon about it SOON!
Getting ready for the yoga festival
Also, my husband and I will be participating in the Awakening Into the Sun weekend festival in St. Petersburg March 7th and 8th 2015, and we’ll have a booth where I’ll be selling, and signing copies of the book. I will have 20 paperback copies for sale so, if you want a signed copy, come on out!
As an empath, it will be interesting to see how much I feel during the event, and how many times I experience “God bumps”. I continue to note, when and where I feel God bumps, and it seems that it’s whenever I am talking about God, or spiritual (deep thought) topics, become familiar with someone’s pain (mental, emotional, or physical), or open a gateway (to unlimited possibility).
The festival was an aWEsOMe success! We enjoyed meeting many new people, reconnecting with friends, watching and listening to new musicians, and sharing with other like-minded, like-spirited folk! I will be blogging about many of our friends in the upcoming weeks and months, so stay tuned! 🙂
On the eve of our 10th wedding anniversary, my husband and I really have a lot to be thankful for, and celebrate.
About the book
You can click below to check out my latest book and buy, if you’re so inclined (and thank you). My chapter is called, “Be Open To Receive”.
The book includes many lessons I’ve learned. Lessons to do with putting aside one’s judgments and making s-p-a-c-e to allow God, the Universe, the Law of Attraction, or whatever name you want to call the magical, mysterious LIMITLESSunseen power of Energy, to bring you all you’ve ever really needed, at just the right time.
