I truly see where I’ve been moving into the 5th density of experience since 2005.
In the beginning
I became aware something profound was happening to me when I started getting GodBumps while talking about Conscious Living, expanding awareness, Christ Consciousness, raw vegan foods, Spirituality, etc. with coworkers. And I have been on a quest to discover “WHY” ever since.
When you really GET Jesus (or the Christ, or Buddha, etc.) you no longer need the church, temple, etc. Going can be invigorating or fun, but you don’t need it.
You’ll find church to be wherever you hang out with others of like-mind and they will uplift you.
You don’t have to be brainwashed or programmed into a certain rigidity. Too narrow of a focus can lead to separation.
If you want to experience the love of unity, apply and integrate what you’ve learned into your day to day. Practices do not need to become rituals, but deeper awareness while performing daily tasks. Pray without ceasing. Seek the meaning and lesson from every interaction.
Continue to become aware of your own virtues; the highest ideals and values of your life.
When you really GET why you came to live in a body, you’ll no longer need teachers or coaches. You can have fun with them and continue layering knowledge and wisdom gained into your system, but mostly everything you need to know can flow into you, if you are open to receive. Be an open vessel.
Layer upon layer new techniques or such, but understand why you are taking care of your body. You’ll live a wholly vibrant life!
Reasons people leave Church
Outgrow it – see through the programming
Have been offended
Not being told the Truth
Been traumatized or abused
Bashing other churches or faiths
Questioned too much
Gossip / slander
Now, don’t kill the thought messenger for pointing these things out. You are more than sheeple!
Our bodies are our temple
Having cleaned a branch church building for months and then being told to leave during a storm when shelter was needed, showed my mom which side those “good church members” were on—and it was not God’s. I could see right through them, though it took mom a bit longer to come around to that knowing. Those hypocrites were living in fear of the insurance company!
Ah, split energies! Know this: Jesus didn’t preach in churches!
Choose you this day how you will feel, and whom you will serve. Find your inner tranquility in each moment.
My being-ness resonated with this video.
I appreciated Neale’s transparency and Eckhart’s powerful stillness (even while he was speaking), as contradictory as that seems.
Bliss. Yes, the more we integrate and allow our Spirit to lead (instead of our Ego), in our daily activities, the more we feel it and know the truth of us.
No graven images
Why no graven images?
Primarily because graven images remind us of the past. And we are to live in the present moment. The dead do not need shrines. And everything man-made will be destroyed in the end. Everything is temporary.
God is ever-living Omniscience
Are you smarter than God? You think you are if you presume to know how God wants you to worship a particular religion. The knowing or “path” to LIMITLESS Source Energy Creator is a narrow one because most find it too difficult to let go of earthly material possessions and simply be present in every situation.
#Namaste #GodInYou #Holism
We are much more than we see. We are Spirit focused like a laser light beam into a physical body, with a lot of unseen energy round about us. ❤️🦋🌀
I pose this question to you: Where do I end and you begin?
What’s the outcome?
The Grand Beyond
Ah! The bliss and joy I feel when I imagine what the heavenly realm of the Grand Beyond is!
What might it be like to reconnect with my loved ones in the Grand Beyond…
Even if I am not with my loved ones in the Grand Beyond after my Continuation Day, perhaps I will go on to create a new galaxy where many can enjoy the earthly fruits of their labor. And my loved ones can gaze upon that galaxy with awe. They may choose to join also!Oh, what a heavenly and splendid galaxy it will be!
I am writing a metaphysical novel that will explore the nature of these things, but for now, I will leave you with this:

We arrived midday in Edinburgh, Scotland from Bristol, England and took a bus to our hotel, the Apex City Hotel.
I settled into the energy of Scotland. And later, Richard would tell me how much it all meant to him.
Monday July 8
We had no idea the heart expanding treat we had in store for us as we visited Rosslyn chapel (think DaVinci Code and the Knights Templar), and the amazing grounds, Yew tree, and glen below the chapel. We learned, and felt, so much!
Upon setting foot on the grounds of Rosslyn Chapel, our soulful guide, Patricia McGivern, had a friend of hers join us and offer an invocation or meditation. As Hazel spoke, and with my eyes shut, I felt myself calm. This time, instead of seeing my field of vision blue (that I’ve talked about before), my view was completely different! My field of vision began to fill with a soft pink, and then quickly turned to a deep and bright ROSE! (One could even call it a vibrant rose color!) Ah!
After walking for a time and taking in a cemetery, natural spring, well, and energy vortex, we made our way through a thicket (where I was once again stung by the stinging nettle), to arrive at one of the most stunning of sights. Thankfully, Hazel picked a few dock leaves for me to squeeze some fluid from to heal it.
We learned so much from Kris! Like how Robinhood is actually a VIKING story that is told in Scotland. And that Rosslyn chapel has 126 plus pictures of the greenman. The greenman is a male energy archytype. (Note: I had been pulling the greenman card out of my oracle deck for months prior to this trip!)
The Yew Tree
As one who fancies how, We Are All Connected, you can imagine how deeply fascinated I was with how this Yew tree grows. It grows out and circles back (if left unattended and trimmed), into itself to continue expanding!
The Yew is an exquisite example of communion and continuity! ❤️🦋🌀🙏☯️🍀
Yes, this Yew was the most impressive thing I saw at Rosslyn! I sensed its incredible power. If you have been to Rosslyn and not seen this Yew tree behind the castle, then you missed experiencing a most enduring piece of ancient wisdom.
It is said that the castle and chapel were built on this land because the Yew tree was here!
Legend has it that the Yew tree was the first tree created! It is the tree of life and death. And all evergreens came from this tree!
I want to go to Wales where they have 40 or more Yew that measure up to 17 feet wide with walkthroughs!
I kissed on of the Yew branches that was near to me just before Kris told us it is poisonous! Thankfully, I didn’t chew on one of its leaves! It did me no harm.
If you touch it or sit on its roots on a warm summers day and it will cause you to hallucinate.
Druid legends come from the Romans, but they didn’t know about the Yew tree! It was hidden from them!
Now, I can look back on the spaces between its branches that form the trunk of the Yew and meditate for hours on its magnitude, perseverance, and majesty. ❤️😘
The parts of the chapel that most interested me were the colors used in making it look so unique, and the statues that brought the mysteries from the East together with the beliefs of the West. The co-mingling of art was astounding!
We really loved the basement chamber (or crypt), of the chapel when Kris sang an Acappella song for us! Stupendous!
Since no photography was allowed inside the chapel, I happened upon a guidebook that someone had thrown in the trash and I took pictures from it! Ha!
As our group continued touring the glen in the rain at Rosslyn, Richard and I waited inside. I had found the brochure and happily snapped pictures I had wanted. Before our group returned, I saw a kilted man outside and snapped his picture through the glass. ❤️😉🍀
We arrived back to Edinburgh later in the day. On the bus ride back into the downtown area, we spotted several Murray businesses. Though our spelling differs, it’s all the same clan.
Our group walked through Edinburgh our first evening there, had a delicious and authentic Scottish meal at Fiddler’s Arms.
Tuesday July 9
Our tour bus took us took us on about a 5 hour drive or so from Edinburgh for a beautiful and picturesque 3 days in Isle of Skye. Yes, we knew this was out in the middle of nowhere, so we brought plenty of snacks!!! We really enjoyed hours of scenery on the ride.
Our bus stopped in Kyle to take a short walk and look at the magnificent cliffs and waterfall. This was a place of dinosaurs!
Our tour included a stop at Eilean Donan castle, which was very cool. We roamed the grounds, had lunch, and took the castle walking tour as well. It was fascinating!
When we arrived in the seaside town of Portree we had no sooner checked into our hotel that a bagpipe parade began. What an aWEsOMe way to welcome us to town! ❤️😉
Wednesday July 10
Today was my dad’s birthday, (he would have been 80), so I had him on my mind most of the day. And this was the day we went to see the Faerie Glen.
Though it was a bit misty, we all made our way to the spiral at Faerie Glen.
I naturally (or intuitively) picked up a small stone while performing my “Thank you to the 4 directions” at the Faerie Glen spiral. Ah! But something told me not to keep the stone though, so I found a space for it where I felt it was good to leave it.
While walking back to the bus, I stopped and looked down to admire the plants along the road and I caught a glimpse of something shiny.
I picked it up and it was a rock with quartz on one side. In my thoughts I heard, “This is your gift from us, for listening earlier and not taking the first stone you had picked up”!
Wow! I was so honored to have been heard and acknowledged by spirit there. I am glad that I am open to receive. ❤️🦋🌀😉
This was our last night in Portree.
Thursday July 11
Our bus took our group to see the Faerie pools today, but the weather had turned a bit blustery.
Though the weather made getting to the Faerie pools an issue, it actually made the drive there more enjoyable due to the many waterfalls we saw along the way.
Richard and I stayed with our bus and driver at the car park. Always listening to our guidance and keeping our ears open, we heard seasoned hikers tell our bus driver (through his window) that they wouldn’t recommend trying to get to the pools because there had been a lot of rain and you couldn’t cross the stream (or small river) as the water was too high and moving too fast. I prayed all in our group who decided to go that they would be okay, and thankfully they were. When they got to the stream, they had chosen not to cross it. Whew!
I walked around the car park and took pictures of more foliage and waterfalls.
We had a lovely lunch after we left the Faerie pools area at the Kintail Lodge.
We stopped along the way back to Edinburgh to have our closing ceremony and last past life regression with Patricia on the bus.
Richard told me later that everyone must have been really tired, because we all had fallen asleep part way through the session! Ha! I know I fell asleep, but I had a most wonderful dream!
Friday July 12
We enjoyed being back at the Apex City Hotel, where the Grassmarket area was bustling with vendors setting up for the Jazz festival the next day.
We spent this day in Edinburgh and some went to the castle, and others went shopping and exploring. We walked to the castle, but didn’t go in. We took in a few shops and bought our Murrey clan tartan and some gifts.
We walked the Royal Mile and checked out several area landmarks and historical monuments. We spent some time just BEing at some of this points of interest and pondering those times in history.
We had lunch on our own at Biddy Mulligans.
Saturday July 13
Our Sacred Celtic Journey group met in the hotel lobby to say our goodbyes and wish everyone well. After taking a few last pictures, Richard and I set out to explore the vendor booths at the Jazz festival and take in some excellent Live music.
One of the gals we toured with saw our Murray marker while she was out and shared the photo with us. We tried to find it, but never did though the bus took us right by its location.
We stayed in Edinburgh until our morning flight back to Dublin (and 3pm flight back to Orlando) on July 15. Stay tuned for another post about that.

Increasing our Connections
As I was talking with a gal sitting next to me, she noticed my fingernails and asked, “Color Street”? And of course, I told her yes and that my daughter sells Color Street. She showed me her nails and smiled really big and then got her mom (who was sitting on the other side of her) to show me hers. It was a light-hearted and fun moment and instantly felt synchronistic to all three of us! Sometimes, the little things in life really do matter! ❤️🦋🌀😉

Make money working from home!
There are so many ways to bring in extra cash working from home (while having fun) these days! #EarnFromHome #WorkFromHome #WFH
I even earn money from anywhere! #RVLiving
If you want to learn and are willing, think about what lights you up, like health, wellness, art, organizing, making memes, sharing online, making videos, meeting new people, being creative, or something else and join a group like my daughter’s to earn while you learn and have fun! Often the investment is small and the potential is there for you to make a good income—and be able to be home more with your precious family.
I had a huge clearing (emotional release) take place yesterday while playing“Fast Track Technique for Kidz” game with my friend and skilled certified practitioner, Dr. Susan Spilman.
I felt amazing then and still do now!
What an energizing and high vibe (vibration raising) experience! Susan told me that children and adults, (no matter the language they speak), can release emotions (even stored emotions they may not consciously be aware they’re holding), by playing this easy and FUN “game.”
The game worked on my Central meridian and I felt the GodBumps ripple down my spine, out my shoulders and arms, and a few moments later, down and out my legs and feet! My vibration was sooo high from playing this game and using the clearing method that my face became rosy! After leaving, I was able to meet up with additional friends (that my previous mind chatter might have talked me out of), visit with them for a couple of hours, drive over 100 miles home, talk with my husband, and stay up hours longer than usual with lasting vibrant energy! ❤️
As you know, I have been practicing and teaching Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) for years, but what I experienced yesterday was incredibly FAST and extremely easy! No tapping required! This “game” does everything I have been seeking, as far as showing us how we all have choices! (Go back to my home page to understand: https://SheilaMurrey.net)
Though I am a highly sensitive person (HSP) and empath, and didn’t feel I was carrying around any emotional baggage, I played the game just to see what I might uncover. And wow!
This game can help calm a child whose been bullied, comfort a sad one, ease one into playing on a team with others, or help inspire a lonely child or adult to engage and connect with others!
As an only child who was often picked last during team sports when I was a child, I revisited that old feeling of loneliness (for a couple minutes during this game play) and felt those old feelings lighten and disintegrate! No wonder I love inclusivity and Connection as an adult! Wow! Shocker! Hahahaha ❤️🤣
I want to be certified in this technique! That’s how much of an impact it made on and IN me. And it’s such an easy and FUN “game.”
I just taught one of my 2.5 year old granddaughters the motion we used yesterday (instead of the tapping points) when on video chat I saw her sucking her thumb and twirling her hair. She copied me (and removed her thumb out of her mouth)! I already see how exciting this technique will be to teach! ❤️😉
UPDATE: I got certified on Nov. 27, 2019!!

Continuing on with the sharing of thoughts and pictures from our June/July 2019 vacation to Europe, this post covers our three days in England. During these three days we covered a lot of ground, literally and figuratively!
The tour took us to Bath, Lacock, Avebury, West Kennet Long Barrow, and Stonehenge (which was abSOULutely phenomenal!) plus, we explored Glastonbury (the Abbey, Tor, and Chalice Well) and also got to have a quick stop in the tiny town of Wells, home to one of the grandest of cathedrals!
Thursday July 4
We arrived in Bristol, England and had a bus (for our group), take us on about an hour’s drive to Bath, England.
In Bath, we stayed at the Apex Bath hotel. We had a wonderful room and comfortable bed. We had walked so much in Ireland that we were really appreciative to have the rest of this day to “just BE.”
We walked through town and marveled at the architecture of the cathedral.
We dined at the famous Sally Lunn’s—home of Sally Lunn’s Buns. Our group believes Sally’s is haunted, as one of our gals experienced some odd happenings while she was in the restroom! She heard the door open, and water run in the sink, and door close, but no footsteps and no talking!
Our food was delicious and even months later, as I write this, I can still recall the feeling and experience of the place.
Picture of us in front:
Friday July 5
On this morning, we enjoyed breakfast at the hotel and afterwards met author, Andrew Phillip Smith. He presented interesting information from his book, The Lost Teachings of the Cathars. I have not read his book, but he certainly seemed an expert on the topic.
In the Languedoc area of Southern France, the Cathars met in groups and did not build churches. They were peaceful, educated, believed in equality of men and women and the early pure teachings of Jesus before being massacred by the Catholic Church in the Albigensian crusade. As well, we learned that the Cathars were celibate (called, Perfects) and confessed to each other in front of believers. Once a Perfect met their Perfect other, they went to Kingdom of Heaven (didn’t need to reincarnate into another vessel or creature). In 1209 something important happened (Reference to my 1212 life that I found out about while in Sedona.)
Supposedly, Mary Magdalene was alone with Jesus at the temple, the well, and in the garden. May not have married him but may have been his Perfect. They wouldn’t have had physical sex though, as that was not the belief or way at the time. This would have put the Cathars at odds with the Catholics.
Cathars believed in Laying on of hands (Refer to the story of the horse-lost shoe between to stones/horshoe over the door); Reference the Nag Hammadi; During the Inquisition we learned about the Cathars (so something good came out of it, yes something good can even come out of the Inquisition!). He even said Adam and Eve were not able to move until the spirit went into them!
While somewhat fascinating, I couldn’t help pinch myself a few times though, as I looked out the windows of the hotel. I was simply in awe to be in England. ❤️
We walked through town again to catch another tour bus to go to Lacock (where Harry Potter was filmed), Avebury, West Kennet Long Barrow, Woodhenge, and finally, to Stonehenge. Honestly, I could write one whole article on my experience at Stonehenge, it was that amazing and phenomenal.
At Lacock, Richard and I walked and talked with our driver who was a retired police officer. He told us some stories about how their criminal justice system operated and that people aren’t allowed to own guns there. We were very interested in the architecture and way of life of the villagers of Lacock. Even the barn was very well taken care of. Walking these aged streets were certainly a walk back in time.
We ended our walk at the church and Patricia asked me to come and see an important memorial of a young mother and children.
West Kennet Long Barrow
A short drive later, we arrived at West Kennet Long Barrow (a neolithic tomb built around 3,650).
We played with taking photos and theorizing about these stones. I happily spied on two birds atop one of the stones at the entrance to the chamber and remarked to Patricia, “One has a feather stuck on its beak”! It wasn’t a busy place that day, so it was relaxing. And we liked that we could touch everything, which heightened my curiosity and made it all the more informative.
We joked about desiring to see a crop circle here, and wildly enough, a couple of weeks after we left, we read about a crop circle appearing near this place! “Missed it by that much”!
Next, we spent a few hours at Avebury, exploring the largest megalithic stone circle in the world! Again, we were intrigued by the “flesh” type of texture to these humongous stones. We marveled at the placement of the stones and the various “growths” on their surface.
We learned that Avebury is also a henge, as Stonehenge is and were further intrigued. Since our visit, we have become quite hooked on the topic!
After leaving Avebury, we stopped along the road for a fantastic lunch at a place called, The Waggon and Horses. Not only was the food savory and delicious, but the building charmed me with delight!
Before arriving at Stonehenge, we made a quick stop at Woodhenge. We learned that the wood markers had been placed where stones had once been.
I will summarize to state that I felt the energy affecting me before we even reached the stones, as we rode the park bus out to the stones, and more while walking to the stones.
I noticed our shadows and took this artsy “giants” shot:
As the sun was setting and I entered the stone circle, I felt a strong yet calm energy as I took each meaningful step. I felt an indescribable connection to this sacred site!
Walking inside this megalithic stone circle was deeply personal and most intriguing. Even now, looking at the photos as I write this, brings me back INTO engagement with those feelings.
After taking pictures and video of the sunset, I found a mostly buried blue healing stone (that Pharon had told me about earlier). I sat very near one of the blue stones and was blissfully surprised at how quickly I dropped into a meditative state.
My few minutes of meditation within the inner circle at Stonehenge was profound! I was quite surprised after leaving there to learn that my husband had taken a picture of myself and some of our others while we were meditating! Love!
Note: Even now, I continue to connect to that stone when meditating at home.
Saturday July 6
Today (on the date of my daughter’s birthday), I was a bit emotional because of not being with her, but also because I was out of the country and not able to talk with her. In English tradition though, I put my chin up and trekked on, as we had a lot to see!
We made a quick stop in Wells, England’s smallest city. And we were all astonished at the sight we saw there!
We left the hotel at 8am for a full day in Glastonbury (where it is believed that Joseph of Arimathea and King Arthur may be buried); we had our second past life regression out back of the Abbey and before the group tour of the Abbey.
My husband, Richard, had been dealing with a hip that was hurting, so we didn’t go on the Abbey tour, but I felt that was all in divine time. As it happened, a friend had lost her green Prasiolite crystal after our regression session and I was available to walk with her, help look for it, and have some time to talk. Had Richard not have needed to rest, I would not have been available.
The grounds here were spectacular. I covered a lot of ground myself taking in the roses and other flowers growing on the walls and looking for meaningful items.
I spent quite awhile in the Abbey’s museum and was immediately drawn to these blue glass fragments (reminiscent of the luminous blue stones I had seen in my first regression session in Glendalough—see part 1 post).
Before leaving we had a few minutes to shop and find some gifts for my granddaughters and myself. 😉
We walked into town for lunch and had a delicious meal at a cafe where we had quiche and English tea.
We left about 1pm for the Chalice Well, England’s most loved and well known holy well that is believed to possess healing qualities). On the way to our tour bus, I spied my synchronistic blue on one of the buildings! I tell you, I didn’t miss a beat of receiving all of the subtle winks from the Universe I was given on this trip!
Our guide for this day took us up a side street to The White Spring where back in the day, commoners could gather water (the rest runs down under the grate beside the street.) He also took us in the building (that isn’t always open), where we could see The Red Spring—and as our luck would have it, we even saw a nude man after his dip in the spring! LOL Oh, my! (No photography was allowed in there and we know why!)
Richard and I took one look at the hill and decided to stay at the bus with our driver, Richard, and talk about the legends and more with him. To us, connecting with those who live in these places are more important than the buildings and such. We enjoyed talking about the sheep and such too, and he prepared a lovely cheese and cider snack for us all after the rest of our group returned. Totally unexpected and delightful!
Back in Bath
Wrapping it up, we spent several hours at the Roman Baths museum in Bath. We were amazed by how much was here and I could write another article on all we discovered here! It was one of the biggest surprises of our trip, as we didn’t know much about this at all and had no idea that we would be so mesmerized by it all, from the engineering and architecture, to the art! We knew Romans were intelligent, but obviously much more than we had thought!
Note: As destiny would have it, out of 30,861 applications I won the lottery entry into the Newgrange neolithic chamber for the 2019 winter solstice sunrise! We are sooo excited to return to Ireland!

A bit about me:
An Amazon bestselling author of two co-authored books: “Transform Your Life Book 2 Inspirational Stories and Expert Advice” and “Energy of Receiving”, available on Amazon.
We are not separate, but deeply connected emanations of the One Presence.
To begin to know this as a reality, a practical way (or daily practice) you can begin to do right now is to put your hands together at the same time each day for a moment or two and simply think or say something like, “Angels ALL around–Hands together to Connect.”

Everyday life causes certain connections to occur.
Listen to this beautiful song by my friends Shelley Morningsong and Fabian Fontenelle.
We are always (ALLways) Connected. Yes, in ALL ways. Nothing is ever lost. Everything and everyone is interdependent and interrelated though we do not have keen enough senses to know it.
The neighbor who may or may not smile at me and say “good morning” while I am walking my dog first thing, before I’ve gotten ready for work, or maybe before I’ve even had my shower (if it’s on the weekend).
The office clerk I may run into when I go to check our mail.
The woman in a mad rush in traffic that cut me off and nearly caused an accident.
The store cashier who takes, or accepts graciously, the money for purchases.
The bag boy or girl who usually offers to help me out to the car with my purchases.
The customer service agent who handled my issue perfectly or perhaps, being new on the job got her so stressed out that she couldn’t think clearly to remember how to resolve the issue, leaving me on hold for what seemed like an eternity.
The restaurant service worker who makes a living serving food to others.
The farmer who is under an immense responsibility to feed millions.
The entrepreneur who works tirelessly to bring about the next big thing into our lives.
The masterful health practitioner who cares more about helping, encouraging, and educating people on how to get and stay well, versus pushing pharmaceuticals.
The television or movie producer who spent countless sleepless nights worrying if anyone would watch their show, only for it to impact millions in an emotional and positive way.
The songwriter (like my husband) who longs for the world to hear the heart and care put into their words and music.

Take a step outside
Step a foot outside and see.
Everything can change in an instant.
We are all connected in so many direct and subtle ways. How can anyone deny it?
How would YOU love to work at a job that your soul was in alignment with? You’d be passionate about such work, wouldn’t you? Working at a place where you really felt excited and part of the mission? I bet you’d be ready to get up before the alarm rang. I bet you’d wake up and feel like you were playing all day while performing each task.
Now, if that were the scenario, wouldn’t that be your DREAM JOB?
What my dream job looks like
My dream job is to provide social media outreach, SEO, writing, editing, graphics, emcee events, or ANYTHING that helps to EXPAND ALL of the following: holistic health and wellness, acupuncture, chiropractic, expanding consciousness, healing our bodies naturally, hope, faith, nutrition, living foods, meditation & mindfulness, spirituality, daily connection with Omniscience, loving kindness, hypnosis, metaphysics, physics (think Nassim Haramein), and the nature of reality.
So, for starters I am launching my brand on Oct. 7, 2019 at the Women, Wine, and Wellness – Brevard Chapter event at 6:30pm!
Here’s your invite:
Because my dream is to fully embody and teach personal responsibility in a holistic way for consistently improving the health, vibrancy, and longevity of ALL, as We Are All Connected. This is the legacy I want to live and leave to my children and granddaughters. ❤️🦋🌀
I see everyone with the ability to possess a real passion for life, via integrating holistic health & wellness techniques into each day (in one way or another); I believe everyone can truly LIVE a wholly vibrant life!
I desire to live and work IN joy each day, using my empathic, intuitive, compassionate, positive, loving, caring, genius abilities and REALLY make a difference in people’s lives!
What’s stopping me?
I don’t think any one thing stops me, per se. I think splitting my energy to work a “day job” slows me down, but also, helping my husband market his original music, and playing “that game”, distracts me from my true calling–though my feeling has been that by helping him, building relationships, and being around lots of music (because sound is healing), also helps me to “not take myself sooo seriously” and allows me time to PLAY!
I do my own integral spiritual and physical practices daily by blending qigong, yoga, meditation, push-ups, squats, etc. into a morning routine that supports me mind-body-spirit, and then gives me the juice to align with my soul and Connect with others, on and off my “day job.” (Plus, I finally have a day job that directly supports our U.S. Veterans and when I focus on helping them, and saving the VA money, that brightens and uplifts me too!)
I could improve my sales skills (but only in a heart-based, compassionate way), and perhaps gain some insight into how to stay focused. Yes, I have taken an in-depth Stephen Covey course. So, I know how to fill in the slow time of my day with small actions, the “little rocks” approach to time management–and that’s helped me accomplish all I have thus far!
What I bring to the table:
I use Microsoft Office (which includes, Word, Excel, Visio, and more), various webinar and video conferencing tools like Skype, Zoom, and Google Hangout, and development tools of WordPress, Dreamweaver, Illustrator, Photoshop, HTML, SQL.
Yes, I am a techie. But, as an empath, I am a caring techie! ❤️🦋🌀☯️🙏😉
I also bring 33 years of research and analytical skills to the table, and when I daydream, I end up making little notes like these:
I’d love to partner with someone to CREATE a similar jobs board focused specifically for the types of jobs (and people I mention on the home page of my Take It Upon Yourself site (https://SheilaMurrey.net).
As a highly sensitive person (HSP) I wanted to stay with my friend at an outdoor cafe and enjoy our visit, but a roaring motorcycle went by and the noise overwhelmed me!
I lost touch with the truth of who I am. I got rattled. I almost picked up my stuff and left, as I was quite literally… BESIDE MYSELF!
A fuller version of the story:
I had arrived 10 minutes early to Ionie’s cafe in Sarasota, Florida on a beautiful Saturday afternoon (Jan. 17th, 2015)– a week after my birthday.
A dear friend and I had previously agreed (earlier that same day) to meet at 1pm there and though she is usually early, she wasn’t on this particular day. I don’t state this to judge, only to establish a precursor to my story.
The last time we had met there, we sat outside and I was prepared to sit outside, but when I arrived I noticed that both outdoor deck tables were full so, I proceeded inside to find a table. It was a fairly busy time there.
My friend arrived a few minutes after 1 (I did not note the exact time because I had been relaxing, listening to the peaceful music and drinking a beet juice drink and water).
As she arrived, we said hello and hugged briefly and she asked if we could sit outside. I told her the tables were full and she said, she’d seen an empty one on the way in (possibly so, things change of course). I said “There wasn’t one available when I came in”, and that I preferred to stay inside (I don’t know why, perhaps because I’d become comfortable). Having none of that however, my friend went back outside to hold the table and asked our server, if we could move my things out there.
I gave in (another precursor) and just as I sat down outside a VERY loud motorcycle went by and I proclaimed that it was the reason I did not want to sit there. She said, “We sat out here the last time”, and I should have said, “Yes, and I didn’t like it” and “since we sat outside before, let’s try inside today.” After all, I had invited her to join me – as I had been there several times by myself. But, I didn’t. I allowed myself to be manipulated, after all, I love change and am flexible to the desire of others (many times to my detriment though)!
At any rate, the point of this writing this now is my logical attempt to put words around the experience of the FEELING that overtook me. When that motorcycle went by, I felt as though I was going to come OUT of my skin!! My entire nervous system shook. My hands and legs trembled. I went back inside of the cafe to reclaim the previous table with thoughts in my mind of leaving. But I wanted to preserve the friendship and felt if I reacted in a dramatic way, I might rock the boat. As well, I have written book chapters about “Connections” and “Being open to receive” so I opted within my mind to find a way to overcome my reaction, noting to mySelf in that moment that I may be overreacting.
How it ended
My friend had came back in and tried to reassure me that they had another table out to the side of the building (not on the street) where we could move the chairs from the other outdoor deck table in order to sit in a quieter spot. Thus, compromising (or giving in), we sat under a tree by the parking lot. It was a bit easier on my senses.
I awkwardly explained to her that I needed to calm myself. I sat utterly quiet. I repositioned my chair, made my body comfortable, and breathed for about the count of ten.
After settling in to the new outdoor spot, the conversation we had over the course of 2 hours, was very beautiful, engaging, and I even expressed to her how I was learning to handle events like what had just happened. I had felt my central nervous system was burned out, as I worked in another town (at that time) and had to wear headphones most everyday because of the city and office noise.
An emergency vehicle went by at one point and I expressed (in a bit easier way this time) that this also disturbed me. It mostly aggravated me (I put my fingers in my ears while the siren was sounded) because when they turned off the siren, I took my fingers out of my ears, then they immediately sounded the siren again! Ugh!! I rhetorically asked, “Why can’t they just leave it on until they get to wherever it is they’re going”?
When it was time to leave, we exchanged a hug and my friend genuinely thanked me for sitting outside. And in that moment I knew we would not have had our lovely visit if I had left earlier when I was mad over the initial irritation.
What I learned from this experience
Allowing this moment to be as it is and just be aware of it;
I must always reach for the best feeling thought and comfort myself;
Touch an acupressure point or focus on one and breathe;
I may not always express or articulate my pain or displeasure appropriately, but I can at least let the person know that I need a few moments to center myself.
Later on that day, I recognized my emotional balance and growth. And that at no point in this experience, which I called an “assault on my senses” did I cry! Even just a year or so prior, I may have cried during, or after the experience, or when I would later recount the story to my husband. Hmmm… change is GOOD!
On Jan. 31st, 2015 I took a class at Suncoast Jin Shin Jyutsu with Michelle Giambra in Sarasota, FL. At the beginning of the class Michelle stated that, “Synchronicities abound.” And then another lady in the class said, “We love the synchronicities that abound here”! Beautiful!
Note: The first four letters in Michelle’s last name are, “G-I-A-M” like the online TV channel I love GIAM, that later changed their name to GAIA: https://www.gaia.com )
I learned there are ways to hold my body that will calm me, ease tension, and anxiety! Break-throughs!!
We Are All Connected. OM
Many blessings to you in ALL ways.
