Continued… Everything Resolves to Gratitude

Everything Resolves to Gratitude (Again)

After my dad’s passing, transition to the Grand Beyond, or his “Celebration Day” (March 2019), I continue to get little “winks” from him that “All is okay” on the other side of The Veil. And that makes me smile.

And since my mom’s crossing over beyond The Veil, I’ve had visitations from her! Thus, “I Know,” have become words I say often when referring to life on the Other Side.

Everything Resolves to Gratitude

I love teaching large and complex topics: like we’re part of God, or different leaves on a tree. And when I want to observe MORE, I take my shoes off (as I did when we laid my parents to rest recently in my home state: https://youtube.com/shorts/fmmrTPI-SC4?feature=share

When I hugged the boxes that held each of my parents’ remains, I tried to say, “I love you eternally,” but my voice was stunted. I couldn’t eek out the words! But I knew, they knew, and that was ALL that mattered. My intention reverberated throughout space and time in that single MOMENT.

We are all one with God

Now, and for some time, I’ve felt we are “fractals of Omniscience” and I have often spoke about that concept. But when I hear people say, “We Are All One” it really magnifies that point.

I soulfully love the practice of imagining the fractal though, as it points out that “as above, so below” insofar as we are created in the same fashion as our Creator, and we beget, in the same design. A fractal is defined as:

Definition of fractal: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/fractal

Everything Everywhere

Check out the movie, Everything Everywhere All At Once, and you may begin to see what I’m referring to when I say, we’re a part of Everything happening all at the same time. We’re limitless.

The ocean are drops of water, all over the planet–even underneath the earth’s crust.

A fractal of Omniscience

As a fractal of Omniscience, designed into Spirit, Soul, Mind (the Infinite and Unified Field), and Body (a sort of earth suit or meat suit–that’s made up on 70-100 TRILLION cells), you really can speak to anything that’s going on in your body and recreate it! Your body is always listening to YOU!

The ocean is made up of millions of drops of water. Each drop of water contains the ocean within it.

If our physical senses had a different frequency range, we would SEE the infinite vibrations (energies and frequencies) and whir of interconnected fractals. I love sitting in wonderment of what different species see and hear… as some see much better at night than we do, and dogs hear and smell so much more than us too!

Observing your WORDS can lead to Awareness

Record yourself freely speaking for a few minutes and then watch it. What do you repeat often? There’s power in analyzing the words and phrases you say repeatedly.

I love focusing on the OM (as found in OMniscient, OMnipresence, and OMnipotent attributes of Source Creator God). OM is hidden in many everyday words like cOMe, hOMe, sOMe, wOMan, and tOMb. 

What words do you repeat often? What are your “go to” phrases to encourage yourself and others?

Many blessings to you in ALL ways. ❤️🦋🌀🎼〰️🙏☯️🌅💦🌱🌳🌴🌲

Grace is a Space

Observing

Grace is a Space.

And…

Grace is the Space.

Grace is the Space that I give myself and my others when “in the moment” of fussy, grouchy, hormonal, hangry, or sad, we react snappy, or name it what you will, from an irritated, aggravated, or irrational place.

Now, when I notice the upset, I simply observe and give my loved one SPACE.

Breathe. Peace. Ignore or not add to their moment of upset by feeding it either positive or negative Energy.

I don’t have to correct anyone. Just breathe and observe. Witness.

Let them have the space to feel their feelings. Often, they will correct or adjust themselves given the space to do so. (And maybe not, but we all learn at differing rates of speed.)

I’m meditating and realizing the best I can do is forgive MYSELF for any time in my life where I have been snappy, fussy, grouchy, or short.

I don’t think I have ever been mean, maybe I have, or I’ve acted rudely or responded in some otherwise negative way (or way which could be perceived of as negative, for my own self preservation). But I didn’t intend to be. Perhaps I was protecting or affirming my boundaries. Or projecting from my Ego.

So with my hands together, I forgive myself.

Tapping on my K27 points and all along my collarbone I say, “I’m okay. It’s okay. It’s ALL okay.” And I taught our granddaughters this earlier tonight—they loved it and grasped it sooo quickly!! Oh! My heart!!

I bring my mind to a neutral point and breathe.

Allow a thought to drop in.

Recall others who gave me GRACE.

The others in my life who simply OBSERVED me. And let me BE.

For today, I am very grateful.

Yes, I am in the attitude of Gratitude for my husband, adult children, and granddaughters. And my eternal and ancestral family.

I am sooo grateful to have had the mom and dad I had.

Do you want to live in that place of gratitude every day?

Everything Resolves to Gratitude. Sheila Murrey

Open letter to Matt Monarch

In response to Matt Monarch’s email letter, both in case he may read this, or for any others who have been on a similar healing journey:

I don’t know Matt Monarch or what all he has been through, number one. No one does.

However, I have healed the body my spirit and soul is living in and owe a debt to Matt’s ex-wife, Angela Stokes-Monarch from the profound level of health I’ve experienced since 2008 after reading her books, Raw Reform: Revealing the Physical Changes and Going Raw For Weight Loss: An Introduction for Overeaters (which, I just read again the other day)!

I’ve been a big fan of The Raw Food World since 2008, and before Matt and Angela had their beautiful children. I followed Angela’s social media posts and videos all through her first pregnancy in fact. And I grieved when Matt and Angela went through their “conscious uncoupling.” As I felt they were so in love.

So, yes, as a fan and follower, I’ve felt this young couple were family to me, especially when I didn’t feel well, or was in an emotionally down place (while my own grown children were both experiencing tumultuous relationships).

So, I give the following from my open heart. And it is what I would say to Matt (or anyone in a similar situation who feels they’ve tried “everything” or “enough” natural health remedies and not found their healing or been let down by other well-meaning healers, experts, or guru types):

When I was six years of age, I too (like Matt), was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. I don’t know if it was labeled a “disease” back then, but nonetheless, and whether or not it really is a “disease” or simply a state of being at “dis-ease” in the body, as Louise Hay has written about (and I’m sure Matt’s well aware of Louise, since her books are usually in the same category as Gerson’s wheatgrass therapy).

Natural healing methods, as my readers know, can encompass a vast range of things, from what we eat and drink (and what we don’t, as in fasting), to Energy Medicine, like Donna Eden’s work, Acupuncture, and more (and includes Energy Psychology one of my favorite modalities), meditation, prayer (always with hands together to “Connect the circuits” and Active Faith), as well as, ice baths, saunas, structured water, and the Biology of Belief (as Bruce Lipton teaches—I am currently in his Community online for $7 a month).

In a nutshell, it’s everything we think (become aware of, acknowledge, let go of), feel (or don’t feel), include in our environment and Energy field, and even some past stuff that’s still in our morphogenic field (which could include past life stuff, stuff from our ancestors, stuff from people we’ve let into our lives for any certain amount of time, etc.) and yes, some of that seems woo-woo and wacky, but I am on a path of learning to receive more knowledge of ALL of this.

Matt said he “saw blood coming out” and perhaps that was a shocking symptom to experience! I had debilitating PAIN when I had ulcerative colitis as a kid. And I’ve met adults who told me there was no cure for this–these were folks steeped in Pharma. But, I was healed!

My uncle is a pastor of a church. And he was fairly young then, when I was 6, as we’re only about 13 years apart. But my mom called him, after taking me to the emergency room and my having to undergo an excruciating exam (which later on, by the way, felt like rape–I was a kid and only knew I was even in worse pain and torture during the exam than the colitis had been causing)!

Our church believed in “laying on of hands.” And when my uncle and other elders from our church came to visit me at our home, they anointed my head with blessed oil and very gently laid their hands on my head and shoulders. They said an audible prayer, but I wasn’t really listening as I was just in too much pain.

After they left, I slept all through the night. I am sure my mom continued praying for me as she was so devout in her beliefs and I was her only child. I know she had to be agonizing seeing me in so much pain, especially after what she’d heard outside the ER curtain–as they had made her step out in order to examine me, and THAT is something that as a parent and grandparent now, I would NEVER allow!

Matt wrote in his email that he’s tried dry fasting, juicing, and took advice from several raw food gurus. He tried a variety of diets and nothing healed the condition.

When Matt wrote that he had an “innocent young trusting mind” that’s exactly when I knew I needed to write this response. I believe Matt’s healing is in that very center of his being where the innocence and trust lives still. Not crushing our Ego (as we all have an Ego for a reason), but finding a way to gently acknowledge it for its usefulness and conversely tell it is it not the ruler of us, can gracefully set us FREE!

I love that Matt acknowledges his Ego in all of this. All of his attempts at healing naturally.

I have said in the past that, “I would try it ALL.”

Now, I question that.

I will add a list of all the treatments, methods, and modalities that I know of, some I have tried and others I’ve not, for various ills, ailments, and such in the course of my 60 years on the planet. Must we BELIEVE in them for them to work? That’s an ongoing mystery to me and why I love the work of Dr. Joe Dispenza, Gregg Braden, and Bruce Lipton, among others.

I am sooo glad the vitamin C drip helped Matt. I am also so thankful that Matt and Angela saw an Alternative doctor (and that doctor had a shot of cortisone to inject in Matt to restart his heart.  

Aloe, Slippery Elm Bark, blended in home-made apple sauce and not eating nuts and seeds, and not consuming dairy (as it’s mucus forming), I would think would be a gentle diet. Maybe not healing, but gentle. And unless we’re an enlightened yogi who can control all bodily functions as we meditate under a Bodhi tree, we will continue to eat something.

I have been through so much shit in my life and all the 12-step groups, meditations, yoga postures, and attending church doesn’t help much if one doesn’t integrate (at least some) of what you learned from these things INTO your life (another good reason to join my Integrated Spiral DE-Program sessions). But as I say on my home page of SheilaMurrey.net, “it’s ALL your choice. Everyday.”

I’ve tried Jordan Rubin’s products too (after meeting him at a church event in person years ago). I love eating that way, but it didn’t “cure me” of whatever I had going on in this body, at that time. And it didn’t seem sustainable to me. I never did buy into the Medical Medium guy because by the time he showed up in my awareness, I was way beyond him (at least as far as I can see) in my own spiritual practice–NOT that I am better than anyone! (It’s just for me, he didn’t seem to offer anything enlightening.)

I haven’t tried a hyperbaric chamber but it sure sounds like Matt gave it the old college try too, and yeah, if I felt worse from something like that, I’d stop too!

I have heard of Pamela A. Popper and of course, Hippocrates Health Institute too, but until the other day, I hadn’t heard of Hellinger’s Family Constellation work. Watch this long video and see if it resonates with you, it did for me! https://youtu.be/wZ1oYiR5VpM

The fish Matt’s eating currently, sounds good, but I’d ditch the eggs and dairy, again as the dairy is mucus forming (from all I’ve learned and experienced) and eggs are high on the list of allergy foods–foods that when eaten, stimulate the body’s allergen response alerts. Eggs were one of the first foods I had to give up for a month or more back in 2000 when I was trying to get to the root of my weight issues and a doctor there had thought I was allergic. They’re also on the list of JJ Virgin or someone like her) list of top 7 or 10 foods that people are allergic to. I know how hard it is to scrape cooked egg off a plate, and I know our insides are different, warm, wet, and we have stomach acid, but they just don’t pass my sanity test, though I agree they are a perfectly balanced food and if I had access to no other food, I’d eat them before eating an animal.

Matt mentioned one MLM company supplement, Sun Rider, which I have never heard of, but my husband and I have been consuming 4-8 ounces of ASEA for 3+ years in good health (though I can’t swear to it being a cure all or anything, I am still detoxing and clearing the body I inhabit of mold and mycotoxins, so there’s that).

He also mentioned Homeopathy Drops and I don’t know if that refers to NES Health or not, but after reading X and that was after feeling better within HOURS of taking Infoceuticals (and for the small cost of these), I wouldn’t knock a gift horse in the mouth and refuse to try those–they’re really very gentle and have worked TWICE now for me to release certain issues from the body I live in.

I do understand what a disease is, though Matt’s use of the word “plagued” (more than once in his email) has me curious if he understands what the Biology of Belief is. I wouldn’t use that word in reference to anything going on with the body–as all the cells of this body I live in and love and use everyday IS LISTENING. 

FYI: Here’s a previous post I wrote several years ago about beliefs (changing one’s mindset, learning about the various belief systems, and “overthinking”, have been a fairly consistent themes in my life).

Look up stem cells. Research about the environment or medium that a cell is in and why it’s important. The cell culture medium actually shapes the cell! The same stem cells grow into different organs of the body depending upon the environment they’re placed in, which I find extremely fascinating!

I do acknowledge that pharmaceutical medicine an offer fast relief–sometimes. But heal? I’ve never known a pharmaceutical medicine to heal anything. It seems he still has the issue, so I question the word, “heal.” Not arguing. Just curious.  

I’m not 100% raw, nor am I on any kind of band wagon here–unless it might be that I question big Pharma and won’t play into their game since the 5 asthma and allergy medications I’d been on for years only made the asthma I had from age 6 to my 40s worse!!! We can walk with a crutch too, but that never strengthens a weak leg!

I wouldn’t blame the almond butter, but maybe the seeds (as seeds are notorious for irritating the colon), and I still love Matt, Angela, and their children and look forward to all the continued good vibes they’ll ALL put out into the world for the rest of their lives.

I also looked up ulcerative colitis and read more about it–and there’s several different types: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/ulcerative-colitis/symptoms-causes/syc-20353326

In closing, no, I don’t think Matt Monarch is failing the “raw food movement” by utilizing western medicine (Big Pharma) or that there’s anything “wrong” with going to a doctor or hospital. He wrote that he’s undergone a 9 year battle and tried many natural remedies and alternative therapies. Matt, those may very well have extended your life! I’m glad the doctors helped Matt find a solution. And everyone should have a health team of professionals on their side for guidance and advice (that’s what I advocate for and teach in my book, Take It Upon Yourself to Live a Wholly Vibrant Life!). I’m so thankful Matt writes that he’s a changed man and that he’s grateful! I believe Everything Resolves to Gratitude. I am happy Matt continues to share from his huge heart (he doesn’t owe any of us an explanation)! I am so grateful Matt graciously offers what worked and didn’t work for him (as each of us are unique in our circumstances). I am grateful that Matt offers us ALL hope to find whatever solution and path that ultimately serves our highest and best. Namaste brother. OM

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! (Details in my book, Take It Upon Yourself to Live a Wholly Vibrant Life!)

I also often consider how grateful I am that my mind and body work in unison. And that my mind is improving with age (though my mom, aunt, and grandmother had Alzheimer’s disease), because I love a challenge (and gleefully learn)!

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 we are each enveloped by Omniscience, divine Love. And we can embrace the wisdom of ALL the masters (I have learned from several now who have passed and continue with several like Dr. Joe Dispenza, Bruce Lipton, Gregg Braden, Nick Polizzi, plus the indispensable, Neale Donald Walsch), who are always near. Plus, my ancestors and relatives in the Grand Beyond and my Third Eye, who 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. Connect with here: www.bodymindheartyoga.com

Cheryl’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.

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 mindful or “aware” of the profound soul 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 (eventually, Jennifer had to be born via C-section).

Anyway, as soon as I could, I took a few days off and flew to Connecticut, 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.” 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”?

Excerpt from:
Murrey, Sheila. “Take It Upon Yourself to Live a Wholly Vibrant Life!” Apple Books.
This material may be protected by copyright.

Years later, when my twin granddaughters were born, I flew to New Hampshire, but this trip north challenged me 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. (Later I realized my dad had done this, so my spinning my index finger in circles wasn’t “instinct,” it was learned and fixed in my subconscious!)

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

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 gleefully 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 or easily acknowledged, accepted or liked 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 didn’t see color or ever think to treat anyone any differently because of their skin tone, or any different feature, but other kids did and I was curious as to why that was the case.

I went home and mentioned to my folks how much I enjoyed my new friends company (and how not many others seemed to) and my mom was fine with me inviting them over. But my dad cautioned me saying, “you can be friends, but nothing more.” Later, my mom clarified that dad would never want me to date anyone of a different race or nationality.

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

Thankfully, dad changed (or softened) 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 Cherokee 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, incredible people. I am thrilled to have formed lasting friendships with many.

Several former colleagues 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.

Some individuals have shown up again in my life “out of the blue” providing me evidence that metaphysical or supernatural powers are indeed at work—often. There’s simply been too many bizarre and uncanny encounters occur (incredibly timed) 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.

What LIGHTS me up? Divine Flame

What is it that lights me up? What’s the Divine Flame?

My purpose is what lights me up.

I sit and look at my PEACE board that I drew for my Integrated Spiral™ program. And what I see, what I know is that I AbSOULutely love to talk and share from my Soul about holistic health, healing, transformation, and of course, Omniscience God and Spirit! ❤️🦋🌀

Per my body graph:When I feel resistance, or frustrated, it is because I made a decision by mental reasoning. My strategy is to respond until I feel satisfied. Unless I am a subtype of Manifestor, my job was never to be the Peacemaker I felt forced to be.

Yesterday, I let go…

Divine Flame

I let go of a 3 year friendship and wellness community (of which I had been a vocal and very visible part of—both on social media and blogging). Done.

Pain pushes until vision pulls.

I walked barefoot in the hot Florida sand.

I cried cleansing tears for less than 5 minutes.

My grief turned to compassion easily. —That’s because I do my Byron Katie “turnarounds.” And “go general” as Abraham-Hicks say. I am very adept at finding my next better feeling thought.

I worked my program of Spiral mechanics on my feelings. —I go deep to rise above, remembering what I have learned from my teachers (Dispenza, Lipton, Hof, Beckwith, Sadhguru, Lama Nicholas, Terrence McKenna, etc) so I can integrate and embody MORE.

What happened? WHY end a friendship?

NO ONE seems suspicious of the mainstream narrative. And while I am not necessarily suspicious, I do question and push back when I feel the need to take care of myself. I still Take It Upon Yourself to Live a Wholly Vibrant Life! Yes, I do! I read my own book over and over to remind mySelf.

Until now, for most of my life of 59 years, I have been a peacemaker. I would most naturally choose to back down from a confrontation.

But I am becoming more discerning.

I used to walk away from a fight because when one walks away, the fight ends. I learned that from the years I watched my parents argue, yell, and bicker. It’s the path of least resistance for me. Call it a coping skill. Whatever. It worked for me. It allowed me to give myself compassion. To love mySelf.

So, I don’t judge mySelf for that.

Yes, I have burned bridges in the past. It was necessary and I have no regrets. It kept me “safe.” Whatever that really means.

But NOW?

Now, I want to stand my sacred ground.

I don’t want to back down.

My Irish ire is up. Haha!

I have grown a backbone.

I know I’m a good person. But it’s more than that, (and because I know we are Energy beings, and that it’s ALL ENERGY), I am a multidimensional WHOLE person, who is worthy of being heard, at least, if not respected or honored. Those are all just labels anyway.

Yes, I am worthy to BE HERE NOW. Bless it!

I love to listen to Russell Brand, Brian Rose, Dr Joe Dispenza, Sadhguru and those leaders who can look and value ALL perspectives.

I teach Integrated Spiral™ courses because they have grown me into WHOLENESS!

🌱 Growing & F-L-O-W-I-N-G (Everything Resolves to Gratitude)

☯️ Kaleidoscope: Finding value in Everything, Interconnectedness (We Are All Connected)

Yesterday. I was triggered by certain personal messages and responses, that differed from past conversations on the particular triggering topic, which I totally had not expected. Yep, I was blind-sided.

In the online community, of which we are both a part of many are supportive of each other. And I was often told what a wonderful person I was when introductions were made. We were supposed to be uplifting, inclusive, spreading love & light, ETC.

Well, I’m apparently not so wonderful anymore! Make one perceived misstep and it’s judgment city! Ha!

I simply brought an issue to light that a simple, “okay” would have been all the communication I needed. If that had happened, everyone would have easily moved on with their day. But, noooo!

Thus today, I witness the power of the Divine Flame 🔥 to burn away what isn’t necessary in my life and clear another path forward. We’re off to see the wizard, as the song says! ❤️🦋🌀🎼〰️🔥🙏☯️

Themes that runs through my life

  • Airwaves
  • Connection
  • CB Radio
  • Voice (Human Design speaks to this too, i.e. Throat – useful in getting attention)
  • Tone
  • Singing
  • Ego / Not being heard/acknowledged. My Spirit knows it doesn’t really matter. And that what does matter is ALIGNMENT
  • Healing: colitis/asthma all seeking peace from stress, hostility, fear, self preservation because I felt suffocated
  • Loved church (learning about God)
  • Loved chiropractic and how good it made my body feel, breathe easier
  • Loved to play not fight – why did others break my toys?
  • Loved the little old family cemetery—though little scary that was behind our neighbors house
  • Loved horses, cats, dogs
  • Loved driving, riding motorbikes
  • Deep thinker from talking more with adults than children when I was growing up
  • Loved to go down the street (escape home)*
  • Loved to play on the tracks / golf course, both opposite ends of my street*

*Wrote about this in First Friends

My Mission is unfolding

I’m noticing that a person’s mission can be different throughout life. I desire my mission to fulfill my purpose.

How?

Perhaps by doing all of the following:

  • Blogging
  • Writing books
  • Creating courses
  • Public speaking
  • Vlogging
  • Podcasting
  • Singing
  • Emceeing events

What’s a crazy thing I could do?

Put on a huge event showcasing ENERGY (Resonance Academy types, solar and off grid types, original music / songwriters, hand crafting artisans, storytellers, alchemists, holistic wellness practitioners, yogis, etc.)

What’s in my way?

What actions am I not taking?
What are my excuses?
What’s the real reason, belief that is holding me back?

Fear of Failure Fear of Success (I’ll have to quit my job, and my struggle is hugely tied to my education and career)

Fear of being told to “just get over yourself” (which I’ve already heard twice since starting to share my unapologetic truths), so guess I should just go BIG

Fear I don’t have a thick enough skin (because I’m so raw, empath)

Too old and not have enough energy

Fear of uncontrolled outcomes (like shock of spider, snake appearing on me)I can’t handle it (At the bottom of every fear)

Fear of upsetting those I love or who love me

What are the turnarounds?

Now, to TURN those around.

I have been successful in life.

I have failed, been scared, and risen from the ashes!

I have survived much worse than somebody’s judgement

I am continually growing my skin and participate in Empath Evolution and Women’s Soul Journey.

I’m wise and age is just a number. Look at all those older than me doing amazing things!

I don’t have to know how to handle every shocking event! Yet, I can handle it.

I will manage it (step by step).

We’re meant to do hard things.

Being unapologetic is freeing.

Who DO I think I am?

Look at what your ancestors struggled through to bring YOU into the world!! I acknowledge my ancestors DAILY

Don’t keep writing your future from your past. Write about the feelings of it, and then the details.

Lesson to grandchildren: I am
Let go of limiting beliefs Know power, strengths, Fears.

Who implanted these fears in me?

Stop fixing it – pop the DOING “bubbles“

Don’t sweat the small stuff

You and I are worthy

What’s bugging me?

Do something about it

Hang out with positive people!

Hang out with children

Hang out with older people

Ask them what they think, and listen! ❤️🦋🌀😘

What’s your vision?

Your core message to the world lights you up!

Transformation-hope-don’t give up

What do you think is stopping you?

Keynotes are different than aspiring free talks

What’s my vision?

My transferrable skills, credentials, spill over to this arena because I am a detective, scientist, tester, credible.

The vision of my future that fits in a picture frame.

Before accepting new commitments, look at my board and see if new opportunities align!!! Big one!! Especially after yesterday 6/14/21

What are my business commitments?

  • JOB (M-F 8am-4pm eastern)
  • Integrated Spiral: self-coaching program

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. ❤️🦋🌀🎼〰️🙏☯️🌅💦🌱🌳🌴🌲

Speakers and Presenters: Grand Tips!

Grand tips for Speakers and Presenters

I have been speaking (and singing) in front of (and for) large groups ever since I can remember: in church settings, elementary school (putting on plays), college, social clubs, flea markets (selling products), networking events, yoga and music festivals (as emcee), and health fairs. I am no stranger to the stage. But, we can all refine and polish our public speaking and presentation skills, I am no exception.

I read an article today that prompted me to make a list of my tips, based on my experiences:

Before you speak

  • Know your subject well, yes do your research
  • Be able to defend or argue your story from multiple perspectives
  • Write down your speech and remove any filler words or phrases
  • Practice your speech in front of a mirror
  • When tempted to use, “you know,” “uhm,” or such just BREATHE (this space is necessary to slow your speaking rate down, as well as give the audience time to rest, make notes, and such)
  • Practice your speech in front of one or two people and ask for their feedback on how to improve it
Grand tips for speakers and presenters

Day of your speech

  • Meditate and expand your Energy out to ALL
  • Greet attendees or meet as many people at the event as possible, shake hands, fist bump, kiss babies, etc. (okay, maybe not kiss babies post-COVID times, but you get the idea)
  • Ease any jitters or “butterflies” using Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Jin Shin Jyutsu (JSJ), or such (even humming to yourself works)
  • Once on stage, tune into your heart center and share your story from “that place”—from your soul
  • Look at some audience members from different sections of the room
  • Make eye contact with friendly “light” faces
  • Provide VALUE— never tell a story that doesn’t make a point (Thank you, Les Brown)
  • Involve your audience, ask “Have you ever…” or “Has this ever happened to you?”
  • Smile and laugh genuinely, when it fits
  • If you ever feel nervous, off track, forget what’s next, or self conscious, be quiet for a moment and breathe, focus and speak from your soul, not your ego
  • Add color and depth to your personal stories, but don’t drone on, complain, or get caught up in negativity
  • People want to hear what you learned and how you grew from overcoming adversity
  • Don’t assume you know your audience—now, on Clubhouse, you probably won’t know them at all, and people are quite multifaceted these days
  • At the end of your lecture, bow and authentically with humility thank your audience for hearing you—they gave YOU moments of their lives

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 earthly 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.

Today, a poem

Today, a poem

Whether you work or play,
Reach for the highest vibe today;

For when you glide in graceful flow,
Effortless work you will always know.

Whenever I feel confused or low,
I look at a tree and find its bow.

I muse and wonder why the branches bend,
providing shelter to birds, a godsend.

Often we stand 180 degrees apart,
Yet listen to understand when we open our heart.

I don’t always know the answers, my friend,
But I believe we all will, in the end.
