The reason I write and speak so much about Omniscience is because that word, instead of God, transcends ALL. Omniscience transcends boundaries. Omniscience overlays all other belief systems. Omniscience allows.
There is a Grace to Omniscience, Omnipresence.
If one is a Christian, you know Omniscience.
If one is Jewish, you know Omniscience.
If one is Muslim, you know Omniscience.
If one is Pagan, you know Omniscience.
No matter what other label you are, you know Omniscience. You know the Energy that transcends ALL.
There is no need for church, temple, synagogue, mosque, or other external structure. You don’t need to go anywhere to BE with Omniscience.
Omniscience is with you wherever you are.
Omniscience meets you in whatever condition you are in. Sad, lonely, depressed, in despair, or on the verge of cRaZy.
Omniscience cares for you, loves you, adores you, and finds you worthy.
One can label God and think of God as a personage, but as soon as you make this distinction, the opportunity is open for opposition and disagreement. If you want to find a way to agree and connect in Unity, it’s easier to go general and adopt the highest view of Source.
You are a fractal of Omniscience. And Omniscience envelopes you. Omniscience is in, through, and all around you. And you are important. You are not merely dust in the wind.
Spirituality, or BEing spiritual, is knowing Omniscience IS.
Kiss your hand. Feel the Energy of your body. Feel the essence of life.
Prayer seeks Omniscience to listen. Mindfulness, meditation, and flowing in a soul-connected way to create something are ways you can listen to Omniscience. Be available for that communication.
We Are All Connected.
Your soul-aligned friend in Connection.
Many blessings to you in ALL ways.

Some people feel it. They feel their soul within their body when they’re in the groove, happy, and sensing elation.
Some sing with soul and love soul music. And while that’s aWEsOMe, that’s not exactly what I’m referring to in this post.
When I meditate I connect with my soul. I yawn to bring in more oxygen to feed and nourish my soul (that resides in my blood). I integrate spirit into my soul. I clear out whatever is not needed. I release old traumas. Perhaps, even past life traumas.
How can you really “know” your Soul?
From what I’ve learned in the last five years
Your Soul knows why you are here, but you may not realize why you’re here–yet
Your Soul is not good or bad, it’s just your true Self, the part of you that has always been and will continue to be
Your Soul is your essence, your most honest Self
Your Soul is the real you
As you open your “real eyes” to your Soul, it will emerge
When you are in alignment with your Soul, you’ll feel good
You may want to defend why you’re here to others, but you don’t have to, just let them move on (They have their own path)
Your Soul will draw the people, places, and things to you that you need, because you don’t really need much (in the physical) to accomplish what you came here for
Your Soul has everything it needs for you to accomplish what you came here for–just listen
Sit with, meditate, pray, listen–you’ll know what to do
Take action when prompted–you’ll feel a push or pull
When you are ready, a teacher will appear–look, listen, feel, and learn
When you are in alignment with your Soul
You’ll feel on fire
You’ll feel on purpose
You’ll feel appreciation for everything
You’ll feel gratitude even when you can’t figure out what you’re grateful for
People will say that you’re glowing
Your eyes will sparkle or twinkle and people will notice it, and the ones who are living in alignment with their Soul, will tell you
Your voice will be strong and full of compassion
Things you used to find to be difficult will just sort of flow, or fall easily into place
Some people may call you lucky
You’ll sense that your ambition fills you with Energy, even when you’re physically tired
You won’t feel lonely, sad, depressed, or stressed, because your Soul will be motivating you to action
And you’ll always have something to do, something going on, not busy work, Soul directed joyful tasks
You’ll sense a confidence in your manner that you may not have ever felt before
Action in alignment with your Soul will somehow move mountains
You’ll want to nurture your Soul
You’ll be drawn to seek out your Soul more and more, and Connect with it
On the path
Your Soul, when you are on a path of DOING what you came to do, will cause you to feel wonderful good feeling emotions (Energy in motion)! You may feel a tingle, small electric kind of charge, or even goose bumps–what I call God bumps.
The concept of the Soul. When we breathe in from the larger part of Spirit, a bit of Spirit (carried by oxygen) mixes with our blood to become our Soul. As oxygen enlivens us (our blood), we express Spirit, and feel our Soul.
Note: As you start to know your Soul, you may notice that your Ego may take a hit. Just know that going into this work, as your Ego is grown out of your Beliefs (conditioning, or “programming”), but your Soul is your Truth, which must always take precedence. Your Soul shall preempt your Ego. And that’s good. Let it Be.
Be the person your Soul knows you are!

A bit about me:

Believe that tomorrow will come and that it will be a new day, a day that will give you (and others) a chance to change.
Belief is what it’s all about, all day, everyday. Your beliefs rule on a subconscious level. And when you want to change something in your life, sometimes all you can do, is “Believe” in the new way, making a conscious choice to change.
BEing an empath
I am an empath, intuitive, and highly sensitive person (HSP). When I connect with others on a deep level, I am able to feel their pain. I experience bodily sensations–so much so that it wigs me out at times!
Over the years, I’ve learned how to navigate my feelings by connecting with others who have already walked the empath “path” and found their footing. And even though I know (and practice often) several different holistic healing modalities and philosophies: Laying on of Hands, Reiki, The Art of Allowing, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Jin Shin Jyutsu (JSJ), prayer, Energy Medicine, singing, chanting, and meditation, at times, I can still find myself in certain situations that test my resolve for freedom and relief. It is then, that I bring myself back to my beliefs.
You’d better believe it!
Or else. Else what?
Why did my mom always use the phrase, “You’d better believe it” whenever she was scolding me or trying to correct me for something?
Beliefs can cause pain
I was “beside myself” when someone related a powerful and gut-wrenching story from their early childhood. I literally broke down in tears (in a small group of people I just met), which is quite unusual for me, and all I could say was, “PAIN (gasp), why do people cause others so much PAIN”?
Later on, when I got home that night, I became unconsolable.
I tried each of the various healing modalities I knew, yet I couldn’t rest, much less sleep. I prayed, meditated, held my hands together, and finally reached a “giving up” point. I let go.
I concluded that I would NEVER comprehend why people hurt others–especially children because my mind cannot comprehend whatever their “why” is. My mind doesn’t work the way their mind works. I was not hating the mean-spirited or ignorant person who caused this person pain, but I couldn’t shake the images my mind had created–from hearing the awful story.
As I laid awake in bed, I kept reeling about how damaging the event must have been for that dear one. Also, my mind was blown– I couldn’t conceive of any logical conclusion as to why anyone would willfully inflict such trauma on a child–or on anyone for that matter.
The various modalities I practice, typically allow me the freedom to hold a space for myself to relax, breathe, and “allow” myself to feel better, grounded, and emotionally stronger. But, not that night. That night, I felt as though I was “walking through the valley of death.” It was not pretty. It did not feel good.
Thankfully, the next morning’s meditation provided me with the gift of relief. Not a knowing of why, because we could never contain the “why”, but of a knowing that my friend survived her ordeal–somehow. Thank God!
Whenever I observe someone else’s sorrow, I feel negative emotion. I believe this occurs to pull me into action. To help in any way that I can.
Holding shame, hurt, guilt, sadness, loss, grief, and other painful feelings (typically due to a certain belief) can cause unease in the body. And you can choose to change those beliefs. You can shift your thought patterns. You can find HOPE.
I want to enjoy a long and vibrant life–if nothing else, so I am active and healthy to do lots of fun things with my beautiful granddaughter when we get to spend time together. I bet you also want to feel freedom, joy, and vitality in your body, mind, and spirit. Please believe that you can!
I have shared with several people (via email, phone, online chats, and most recently at Awakening Wellness Center in St. Petersburg, Florida) who have really been at the “end of their rope.” In some cases, I’ve felt very strongly that they may not want to live another day. Through their angst, words, or tears, I felt their isolation and pain. I’ve felt their suffering. And I’ve yearned to help in some way, because We Are All Connected.
To this end, I would love to introduce my friend across the ocean, Lela Starseed.
You see, I know Lela’s story personally (as I edited her book of memoirs last year). And I watched several of Lela’s heartfelt videos, and connected with her via live online video conferencing. I could sense Lela’s complete and genuine love for people and desire to help others ease out of their painful experiences. She can help you put your “victimhood” behind you. She can assist you to find a better way to live! You can feel better! And you can thrive!
Lela Starseed has powerfully transformed her own life, from a painful past that caused her much suffering, to her current state of being a beautiful warm, intelligent light, with a sincere gift of healing to share with you! Lela is an empowered teacher for us all!
Lela is also offering my readers a very special offer, to work with her one-on-one via online video conferencing. Lela’s offer is amazing, as you’ll read next.
Blessings to you my friends, in ALL ways. – Sheila
I am delighted to offer a complimentary healing session to anyone who feels inspired to work with me.
For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Lela Starseed and I have had a very extraordinary and interesting life.
I spent many years experiencing a wide range of different illnesses and didn’t understand why I kept manifesting these illnesses and negative experiences.
After years of soul searching, healing and doing the inner work, I realized I could just eradicate my symptoms by my belief.
When we work together, we see what is needed to clear blocks that you may be experiencing in your life. We may work with visualizations, meditation, and connect into your body and soul to see what is needed for healing.
Your soul is extremely wise! It is amazing how fast healing can take place! And your body always provides the answers.
It is a sacred time for just you and you alone. And you will be given the space to express whatever needs to be expressed.
Finally, it is always an absolute pleasure for me to witness the healing that can just happen. We have always had the power to heal ourselves, but sometimes we need to be guided back to our source of being.
UPDATE: June 18, 2016 Unfortunately, not long after I had published this post, a young coworker committed suicide. In an effort to offer some sense of understanding and compassion of her demise, I pray that anyone who is sad, lonely, depressed, in pain, or in any way feels they may be suicidal, please reach out for help. Tomorrow is always another day–and there is hope.
You can always call Silent Unity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for prayer: 800-669-7729
And the suicide hotline is: 800-273-8255
Many blessings to you all, in ALL ways.
A bit about me:
Check out this original song, It All Starts Within You. My husband wrote this song and it was performed and recorded in a Nashville, TN studio. You can download it (it’s Track 9) from this link: https://store.cdbaby.com/cd/chevyfordb2
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.
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.
As I have written previously, in the “We Are All Connected” article, “In my experience, if your heart is pointed in the direction of LOVE you emanate a vibration, sending ripples of unconditionallove and compassion outward, which allow you to be a blessing to others. You will help yourself and lift others.”
I have also spoken about frequency, vibration, and energy as it pertains to the tone of our voice. As we communicate our words to each other, our tone sets off and gives to all, the intention of our hearts. Our tone actually communicates MORE than the words we are speaking! It may be one reason why some of us prefer to learn from hearing people speak, vs. reading, though I am certainly grateful that a good many of us read!
Now that my doggie is going deaf, I have noticed that he still responds to my voice and I think that is because my tone sends a vibration to him, that while he cannot hear the way he used to, he still knows the vibration of ME (and what I’m requesting of him).
Imagine throwing an object into water. You see the ripple effect from the pressure disturbance. In physics, one name for this effect, is the Huygen’s principle.
Huygen’s principle theorizes a “qualitative explanation of linear and spherical wave propagation” but does not answer the question of why waves are not circular (irregularities are maintained ) when an irregular shaped object is thrown into water.
What has that got to do with fasting, insights and synchronicities?
As you know, when you fast (abstain from solid food) the body uses the time it normally would to digest food to take care of a lot of other processes instead. For me, it always sharpens my mental abilities, opening me to new insights.
I am prone to using the time I would otherwise be thinking of what I want to eat, shopping (well, my husband does most of the shopping actually), preparing food, etc. to using the freed up time to read, exercise (even walking Beau more), watch YouTube videos, pray, clean, engage with others, think, and write.
Yes, while it’s my nature to analyze and over-think, this occurs on an even deeper level when I am fasting and though synchronicities abound, I am more aware of them.
So, I’ve looked back on some of my tweets (I love Twitter because I can note these deep thoughts in the moment) on days I’ve fasted (or when I’ve just came off a fast). In the moment, I’ve tagged these deep thoughts with #Love, #God, or #Peace. The particular thoughts that just seem to drop into my mind, are the ones I specifically tagged #God, or even ended with “- God” as if to sign them from God (as some church billboards have done).
Looking back on that, I see that Love, God, and Peace are all attributes of the energy and vibration that makes up All-That-Is, All One, the Ever-Living,Filling-ALL-Space, LIMITLESS Creator that vibrationally, connects us all.
You ARE only seeing PART of the picture – ever. God.
All tone of voice comes from the intention we are flowing, transmitting from our hearts. We literally pulse vibration outward!
Most people have had God’s unconditional love, conditioned right out of them.
We are each a leaf on God’s tree (Gaia), each with our own unique perspective.
Displaying confidence is really just YOU, your real unlimitedself!
Because I am a “being“, I am always worthy, because I am always #becoming. Always on my way. Always accepting.
When you #hangout with the ones you think the #world of, the world is yours!
When what you believe in hurts other people rather than helps, it’s not about #God, it’s about you.
When my tasks are aligned with my #passion, I am going with the flow and feel great! When I am tired after work, I was in resistance.
If you can #love your enemies, man everything else comes #easy!
There is nothing static in this world. Everything #changes, revolves, shrinks, or grows. That’s life!
Its simple really. Instead of “God made us in God’s image”, we see and make God to be like us, in our image. (Which is what causes us the most problems.) God is Energy, in All.
Why were we made in God’s image? To reflect God in all we be, do, and have!
Be as water, flow on and #reflect all. Seek your own level (balance). Water is not good or bad, water just IS.
WE are to #reflect God upon each other, as water reflects the sky.
Whenever I #FEEL bad, sad, mad, etc. it is always because my perspective differs from God’s POV which, is ALL WAYS
If your in a quandary about something, the best you can do in the moment may be to stop and do nothing (but keep breathing). Then, as you begin to start again, say yes only to the things that come your way that feel lighter (vs. heavier) feeling for the guiding bodily sensations before making a particular choice. Many call that listening to their “gut feeling.” I call these familiar sensations, my “God bumps”, and they are my validation that I’m heading the right way – and perhaps also confirming, so are you.
My way, may not be, your way. Many paths – one destination.
Don’t ignore your inner guidance – it exists for a reason.If you want to experience greater vitality, health, and prosperity, choose thoughts that move you to FEEL good. That’s about as simple as it gets and even a child can understand.
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.
I’ve gone to many churches (different religions) over the years and I have found some common thinking among them. I love learning about God and all means of connecting with our Creator. I don’t search because I haven’t found God, I search because there’s so many different ways to connect with God!
But there were some preachers who said things I didn’t like (meaning that I found some of the things they said were divisive and did not resonate as positive with me). Things such as:
“We’re right, they’re wrong”
“We are the only church preaching the true gospel”
“We’re the only ones baptizing the correct way”
“All other religions are wrong“
Those statements seemed contrary to my nature and what God put upon my heart and some were contradictory to what Jesus said (or have been attributed to Jesus) in the Bible.
When I asked some of the followers of these kinds of churches about the things their preacher was saying they replied: “I may not believe everything the church, religion, or my preacher teaches, but I follow the basic tenets and leave the rest.”
Then I asked, why would you continue to attend (or belong) to a church / faith that did not align with your beliefs? Most would answer something along the lines of:
“I stay out of respect for my spouse, parents, grandparents, etc.”
“The preacher is smarter, more studied, etc. than me”
“I’ve gone to this church my whole life and changing now would be too difficult”
“Perhaps I’m being convicted and have more to learn here”
Then I came upon the statement of: “Take what you need and leave the rest” when I attended several different 12 step recovery programs during a time when an ex-spouse was dealing with substance abuse and his doctor wanted the whole family to undergo therapy.
The concept reminded me of what those church goers told me years before so I began applying that concept to many things in life. Truly in all of my research and study I have not found anyone who “knows it all” so that phrase has helped me open to more. I have not found anyone who has a perfect life, or “has it all” no matter how you define the words, perfect and all.
I’ve written before about my maternal grandparents raising my mother and her siblings in a particular faith that believed in the Almighty Living God. One of the most challenging aspects of that Christian faith is how many other people, even other Christians, called our church a cult! But I would not have experienced the healing power of God via “laying on of hands” – the first and most powerful Source of Energy Medicine – had I not been attending that particular church. In fact, I was healed of colitis when I was young because my mom knew to call upon the elders.
To explain a bit about that experience, when I was about seven or eight years of age I experienced severe abdominal pain, cramping, bloating, and difficulty eliminating (all symptoms of colitis). My mother took me to the hospital emergency room. During the doctor’s physical examination of me I became hysterical because of one particular method the doctor used which scared me to death and physically hurt!
I think my shrieks and cries of pain reminded my mother that our family typically prayedfirst and asked for laying on of hands by the elders (totally calming and non-invasive), before going to a doctor or hospital. So, she took me home and called the elders of the church to come and administer laying on of hands to me. I never experienced any symptoms of colitis after their prayer!
NOTE: The doctor had prescribed some paregoric Kaopectate that a pharmacist had to compound for me, along with an enema when we got home. The interesting thing to me now about his recommendation of the enema is that had we believed in having colonics / colon hydrotherapy or enemas on a regular basis and right ways of eating I never would have been in that situation to begin with!
I should also mention at this point that I recognize in some emergency instances intensive allopathic medical options may be necessary. I do not mean for anyone to throw the baby out with the bathwater so to speak and throw all allopathic medicine to the curb. All healing comes from God and God allows doctors, nurses, and healers (including allopathic practitioners) to possess abilities and skills to help people. However, in my experience, prayer is mostpowerful and now the Mind, Body, and Spirit sciences are proving this!
I have had friends and family who prayed and went to the doctor. I am not judging that. God works in all ways, often mysterious! God can heal you on the way to the doctor! The important distinction is: Ask God first! Ask and continue asking. Then be open to receive God’s answer.
Do not judge or condemn others who believe differently than you, as they have their own path. If you believe God lives in you, they may also believe God lives within them! When you argue with them about their beliefs the vibration of that interaction actually runs counter to what God wants which, is for all peoples to live in peace acknowledging Creator God.
If you want to open to receive more, the Bible teaches:
“Study to show yourself approved to God…”
“Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind…”
As for the church of my youth, while I feel it beautifully served me well for a time, I am continuing to seek wisdom by following the pulsing sensation (“God bumps”) I feel in my body when God, our Source, our Creator confirms I am on the path. I’ve learned that judgment does not resonate with me. Oneness speaks to me.
Now my “church” occurs anytime I talk with at least one other person about our LIMITLESS Ever-Living Filling-All-Space Creator. And I continue to research and study. I find much of the new science thrilling! To me it all validates God it does not negate God. Darwinian evolution theory is out – disproven. Science still does not know where we came from but chromosome 2 in our DNA proves we did not evolve from ape-man. Kids, your school books are WRONG.
Currently, I am reconnecting with things that interested me as a child. Because I used to love archeology and dinosaurs I began listening to Gregg Braden. One of his recent interviews about his book Deep Truth – (click on the words Deep Truth to watch his video on YouTube) or watch the interview I saw on GaiamTV.
Gregg’s interview led me to explore this site, about heart-based coherence: Global Coherence
I follow and study the work and writing of many people though. To me, this is a topic I will be able to study the rest of my life. There’s soooo very much to learn!
In all things I wish you love, peace, and many blessings. In fact, everything you have and all that is around you right now (even any suffering you may be experiencing) is with you for a reason and to bless you.
Take what you need, leave the rest. Thank you and Namaste.
Take It Upon Yourself is about accepting responsibility for yourself. Your health. Your dreams. Your talents. Your passions and desires. It’s about knowing who YOU are.
Who are you? Have you asked yourself this question? Have you said, “Self, who am I”?
Take a look in the mirror – go ahead, take a good look. Do you know who you are? I realize I may err on being a bit annoying here. But I just wonder how many of us really examine ourselves – and ask ourselves this question. How well do we know our own unique person… mind, body, and soul (or spirit if you’re so inclined to believe in a spiritual self). Each of us have a unique set of fingerprints to remind us that we’re all different, particular, specific individuals.
I’ve been asking myself who I am since turning fifty (50) years of age. I am on a journey of self discovery. I can describe attributes and characteristics of myself, but who am I?
I have discovered that I am Energy, focused in a physical body. I am the sum total of my previous choices and experiences.
I’ve accomplished many things that I never thought I would. I’ve been given everything I have ever wanted. Along the way I did some things I would not do again – but I learned lessons from those experiences. I can’t explain why I did some of the things I did, but I think I had good reasons at the time. I think most people act on the best information they understand at the time.
So, I can’t condemn my former self since I acknowledge that my past choices taught me lessons and turned me into the person I accept as my self today. I believe love is a choice. Life, humility, gratitude, sanity – all are choices.
I have also come to an awareness that beliefs are just thoughts we keep thinking over and over – we always have the power within us to think different (better) thoughts and change ourselves if we don’t like what we see in the mirror. Me? I’m always changing!
So, who am I? LOL
I accept responsibility, fully, for who I am. And I deeply love and accept myself for who I am.
I am a mother, a new grandmother, and wife. I’m a highly responsible individual. I take it upon myself to feel better and make healthy choices everyday. I’m fabulous. 🙂 And I bet you’re fabulous too!
I am more than my mind, body, and soul / spirit. I am the culmination of everything I’ve experienced. And I stand on GREAT shoulders. Strong, loyal, God-loving, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, and so on.
I have also had great mentors and teachers along the way too! Thankfully, God gave me one in particular who proved the value of higher education to me many years ago (because I couldn’t wait to finish high school and had never wanted to go to college). She proved me wrong. Obtaining two degrees kept me gainfully employed on my career path!
Some of my ancestors were persecuted for their beliefs, religion, and even their race, which knowing this – keeps me grounded and humble. I believe that also is the reason, or at least one reason, why I am an empath. I am strong. A survivor of hurt, pains, and traumas. A survivor of former marriages, of loves lost.
I look in the mirror and see a woman who’s changed – a lot!
I now eat foods that I didn’t eat five (5) years ago. I beat asthma. I’m a creative and technical career woman. I’ve co-written songs (with my talented soul-mate hubby), and tried all sorts of alternative health modalities that most of my family and friends haven’t yet explored. I’ve gained weight, but I’ve lost it too! I consider myself somewhat of a renaissance woman. Forging ahead and leading my daughter and granddaughter down new trails.
Taking it upon myself, I want something better for them, an easier path perhaps, than what I had. And I know a lot of people who feel the same way. They want to give their kids more than they had – not material things exactly – but knowledge!
Knowledge is power. An explored, informed, due diligence done, and educated response to life – wow! Just imagine the time I’ll save them, and maybe some pain too.
I heard it once said that a wise person learns not from experience, but from the experiences of others.
I’d like to go down that road less traveled. So, I invite you to… take it upon yourself.
