Limiting yourself? God is. Just Be.

Why do we limit ourselves?

Ever. Or at ALL?

I wrote on this topic several years ago, and you can read that here.

Yet, I continue to catch myself in little moments where, whether I’m saying anything aloud or not, internally, I’m sensing a little argument going on. In WildFit, Eric Edmeades calls it the little conversation between the “food angel” and the “food devil.” I don’t believe in a devil, so I don’t use those terms, but I do catch my mind chatter–as I’m a mindful type–so I pick up on the inner turmoil of fussing, finding fault (with myself more than others), arguing, criticizing, and negative self talk.

I know, that in all of my inner chatter, what I’m actually doing is plucking the strings of the Unified Field. Ha!

Something is manifesting while I’m having this inner conversation. I may not know it yet, but I’m becoming aware of what is already going to be!

God IS. Just BE.
God IS. Just BE.

I’m learning that I never “get anywhere” positive with myself when I’m always beating myself up–mentally.

I’m not perfect. No one is. But I am doing the best I can. And thrilled if you acknowledge my growth.

I’ve been aware of my intentions, yet ignoring my Source whom always walks within me.

Mixed signals (frequencies, vibes, etc.)

Arguing with myself (and allowing that rambling internal dialog), limits me (limits my intentions) and puts me in a flux state, vibrationally speaking. It sends out negative vibes too, and probably even shows up on my face. (I’ve never had a good “poker face.”) I’m not perfect. Nor do I think anyone is. Yet, for some reason, I still hold myself to some “high standard.” Ugh. It’s also got to be a drag on my Energy.

Thus, I’ll restate my intentions as:

My daily mission: to consistently and joyfully mind my Energy, pluck the strings of the Unified Field of what I want to manifest in my reality, manage the contrast between things that frustrate me (like a pebble in my shoe), which cause me to ask for improvements in my spiritual yet earthbound experience, and reach for better feeling thoughts to allow my body to breathe and BE more in a state of ease, remaining open to receive ALL of the divine blessings Omniscience wants to give me.

I want to always walk by faith. I always want to BE conscious in every present moment. I’ve glimpsed it, so I know that we walk in the light and are never alone.

Be in God’s Energy. Sense the Presence of Omniscience. Blessed BE.

Ease, peace, calm, love, light, joy, bliss, namaste, and, and…

We Are All Connected. OM

Many blessings to you in ALL ways.

A study in consciousness: The gnat

While watching (well, more listening) and contemplating the very recent sad, senseless, and tragic murder of my cousin, I tuned into this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PUscmv4YqMU

In the video it is suggested to see if we can observe where a thought begins and ends, and the space before and after the thought–where it begins and ends.

Thus, I have been observing the thoughts and messages coming INTO me:

  • Contemplating a recent tragic event (jumble of thoughts)
  • Sitting here, as I breathe and focus on my breath, I notice
  • I can forgive
  • So, it’s a Choice if I don’t (forgive)
  • I can cry
  • That too, is a Choice
  • Ugh, there’s a gnat
  • This gnat is bothersome
  • I can swat the gnat away
  • I can let it go on its way (it may not stay in my face for long anyway)
  • I can Choose to do nothing
  • I can accept the thoughts that come and go
  • I can accept the Energy that moves through me, stimulated (or caused) by my thoughts
  • Accepting that Energy is what causes my emotions (Energy in motion)
  • I Choose better feelings thoughts
  • I welcome better feelings thoughts
  • More than just “looking for the silver linings”
  • I can find the lessons in the experience
  • By observing the lessons learned, I feel some Gratitude
  • I can simply take one step at a time
  • I will be gentle with myself
  • By being gentle with myself, I can be gentle and kind to others
  • I don’t have to use the “bad” or negative experience (no matter how tragic it is) as justification for treating anyone else negatively (huge Aha for me!)
  • I can let the gnat live
  • I no longer see the gnat
  • I am grateful
Found the gnat later

Observing grief comes in waves

Why does grief wash over us like waves?

Our body is supposedly 70% or more water or fluids, right? And we know the Energy of the moon pulls and pushes the oceans of the world into waves. Thus, is it any wonder how Energy ebbs and flows within us?

As a highly sensitive person (HSP) and empath, I know that , “Energy in motion = Emotions” and that my “work” (if there is any), is to simply Allow the Energy to flow through, so it doesn’t get “stuck.”

Seemingly, Energetic experiences can cause a sort of stickiness (that energy healers can feel when they move their hands near a body).

❤️🦋🌀

If I desire to be well and live in peace, and I do, then I must master the Art of Allowing.

To heal wounds, past traumas, and triggers, I must observe when they occur (or when past ones rise up for clearing and healing), acknowledge them. Share or journal. Or do whatever I can to make peace with the emotion and let it go.

Why does anyone or our illusory Egos, hold on to hurt, anger, sadness, jealousy, or bitterness?

We can choose to, “Be Here Now.”

We can choose to feel the pain of an experience, pull out whatever we can learn from it, seek the silver lining, forgive ourselves or others, and let it go. Yes, we can.

Disturbances cause imbalance.

Humans tend to fight (from their state of struggle) because each wants to live an independent life and another seeks to Control them. Thus, like a butterfly in a cocoon, we fight to free ourselves.

When we choose to be consciously aware, we can ride the waves into the shore.

Energy moves. Let it flow. And like a surfer, enjoy (IN Joy) the ride. Feel. Cry. Release. Smile.

We Are All Connected. OM

Many blessings to you in ALL ways.

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

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

An energetic, illuminating, and enlightening read.

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

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

Interconnections and Vibrations

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

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

Waves of Energy

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Favorite chapters

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

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

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

Why?

Ready?

Because I’m a BREATHER! Haha!

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

In summary

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

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

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

Book Review: New Perspectives, Past Lives

Book Review: New Perspectives, Past Lives

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

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

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

Meet Shari

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

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

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

Interconnections and Vibrations

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

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

Layers of Energy

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

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

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

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

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

From New Perspectives, Past Lives by Shari Hinkle

Loving reminders

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

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

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

In summary

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

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

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

I never used to be a symbol person

A couple years ago, especially after visiting Ireland, England, and Scotland (on our Sacred Celtic Journey with Patricia McGivern), I found myself using symbols daily in one way or another—mostly as my signature in social media comments.

My signature symbols ❤️🦋🌀〰️

Why?

Perhaps due to the spiral symbols of Knowth and Newgrange informed me sooo much (and reconnected me to the Reiki power symbol I use when sending love and healing vibes to someone (or myself). Or because of my natural spiral curly hair! Ha!

Spirals

Spirals of Newgrange, Ireland.

Triple spirals engraved into the interior rear stone of Newgrange chamber.

Some of you remember I treated myself to this energetic Celtic pendant that I have worn everyday since I bought it in Dublin, Ireland. That’s when we took our second trip to Ireland (a few months after the first trip), because I had won the Newgrange lottery to go into the chamber for Winter Solstice 2019—also, by the way, the last days the public has been allowed in the chamber!

Now, since I may never get back to Scotland again, I have Connected with a wonderful new friend who lives in Edinburgh Scotland and makes these beautiful pieces: Enya James.

Enya, kind soul she is, also included a bracelet! you can follow her on Instagram and Facebook too!

Churches

Today, I was cleaning a PartyLite church I had bought from my daughter (back when she used to sell PartyLite stuff), and the thought hit me:

“I don’t even like most church buildings or temples, etc because WE humans ARE THE CHURCH!”

So, why don’t I just clean up this statue = graven image and give it away?

Hmmm.

And I sat with this thought while I went back to work on some documentation.

A couple hours later, a thought (or Aha moment) dropped into my mind:

“Because it reminds me of my daughter, my past experiences while attending the church ⛪️ of my youth with my family, my grandfather and uncle building churches, AND the chapel at Rosslyn!”

I will let it go. And I will know the right time for me to do so. And I will gift it to someone with lots of love attached, instead of my current vibration of, “I don’t like church buildings.”

You may remember some of my previous church rants/posts like this one. Enough said about that.

I actually have more recent notes about stuff I just learned that also pisses me off about how some church buildings are built by the congregants financial contributions (and hands on TIME), but then when the building is SOLD, the head church or corporate church or whatever you want to call it, KEEPS ALL THE MONEY!!! Grrr. S

“Sheila, quit your bitching!”—is what I have to tell myself. All those contributions of money and time were given freely of the people as a tithe or service to God. But then what does the world church do with the money? Grrr! “Sheila, Let it Go.” ❤️🦋🌀〰️🔥🙏☯️

It ALL belongs to God.

Right.

And Omniscience SEES ALL.

God will deal with the money grubbers.

Okay.

Hmmm

Blessed BE.

It’s not up to me to resolve the injustices of the world. Hopefully, those churches will feed the hungry and clothe the naked. God knows they don’t want to house them (in their locked churches). ❤️🙏🤦

Perhaps the stones are more my “church” anyway? Stonehenge sure Connected me. Inner heaven to the peace on Earth (during my meditation there). And I am eternally grateful. ❤️🦋🌀〰️🔥🙏☯️

Patting myself on the back

My biggest takeaway from 2021, was to give myself a physical pat on the back for accomplishing sooo much—though I had multiple obstacles and challenges.

Think patting yourself on the back for your accomplishments is bad? That could be a limiting belief.

If you don’t pat yourself on the back, it’s doubtful that anyone else will.

Patting yourself on the back is NOT arrogant or egotistical! You work hard. You are studious. Resilient. And you’re flexible. Adaptable. Look yourself in the eyes (in a mirror) and SMILE!

My husband has this saying, “He who tooteth not his own horn, the same shall not be tooted”! Haha! What do you think of that?

Plan for success

I keep a variety of notes around me, from little sticky notes, to journals, to poster drawings of my spiral method, to notes and research on my laptop and in my iPhone.

“The spiral of energy is akin to layers of an onion. And each layer of that onion, using reductionist thinking, could be sold as truth—as the only part of the onion that exists.”
Sheila “Spiral Sister” Murrey

When inspiration comes, I jot it down and sometimes I post these on Facebook or Instagram. The ones that really resonate with me, I put on a shirt, mug, or such:

The Presence of God is EVERYWHERE ❤️🦋🌀〰️
Most people have had God’s unconditional love, conditioned right out of them.

Create success

To create my success, I set my sights on accomplishing the my top 5 goals by believing in myself, my brain and body, and in my voice. My daily practices include:

  • Gratitude Flow (IntegratedSpiral.com)
  • Meditation
  • Singing (to feel good)
  • Moving (to burn cortisol), Qigong / Yoga, Dancing
  • Acupressure
  • Doing Energy work: EFT Tapping, Eden Method, etc.
  • Writing

To elaborate

Dancing adds JOY into each day and helps me burn calories.

My Integrated Spiral™ Gratitude F-L-O-W keeps me grounded and in touch with my ancestors and relations in the Grand Beyond. Yes, We Are All Connected. 💙🦋🌀〰️

Meeting with Clubhouse groups (keeps my mindset UP).

Staying in touch with family and friends keeps me accountable (and strengthens my integrity.

Tracking my steps, weighing in, and measuring my body weekly, helps me stay focused on my health.

Posting something everyday on social media builds my following. I love sharing my perspective on reality in hopes that it uplifts others (and their businesses), though I acknowledge “shadow” too, because I believe in yin and yang, and balance. ☯️

With a little help from my friends

Take It Upon Yourself and strengthen the unseen “fabric” that connects us ALL.

I’ve been thrilled to sit in circle with Patti Stevens. And be a part of her Women’s Soul Journey group on Facebook. I met Patti on a yoga cruise in January of 2020, and had an instant soul Connection with her.

Shout out to Robin Quinn Keehn!

Robin runs her own business called, Quitting Culture and has been one of my cheerleaders throughout 2020 and 2021. She’s super confident and full of integrity! I highly recommend her if you’re just starting out in business.

As well, Marilen Crump runs the Phenomenal Female Business Network and has been running business masterminds groups for women for many years. I’m in a couple of her groups and I have actually partnered with fantastic entrepreneurs via these groups! My tip: When networking online (especially in Facebook groups), simply be your helpful self and you’ll attract your authentic tribe who wants to work with you. ❤️😉

Queen Kimmie Tyson is another one of my cheerleaders who runs a thriving business and podcast with her musical husband, Shawn7. Queen Kimmie got me into Clubhouse and I have made incredible friends with several through sharing unscripted there from the depths of my soul. Connect with me there by searching my name or “Spiral Sister” to join our calls.

I’m telling you, it’s so encouraging and motivating to have a group of fantastic business mentors on your side.

My TOP 5 goals for 2021 were:

  1. Integration of my Spirit and Soul into ALL I am and do DAILY, to help me stay balanced and Connected
  2. Take Joy in running Integrated Spiral (a transformational, small group, self-coaching DE-program)
  3. Close open loops within the week and celebrate to reinforce that habit
  4. Market our music while promoting others (as I have been doing on N1M)
  5. Continue writing (metaphysical novel in progress), created a course on Communing with TREES, blogging, creating t-shirt designs and more, and generating ideas for a Vlog or podcast

Forward progress is continuing.

Many blessings to you in ALL ways. ❤️🦋🌀🎼☯️🙏☮️

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
