We can’t legislate morality!

Legislation or laws are simply the guardrails to attempt to CONTROL peoples actions. Period.

Intention and actions stem from a persons morality, from their heart and beliefs. Better to curb the things that influence those choices, like putting less violence in movies, TV, games, etc and horror and torture, etc.

REMEMBER: Cain killed Abel with a rock!!! 

I had riflery and archery classes in (gasp!) HIGH SCHOOL!!! And yes, we shot REAL rifles and aimed REAL arrows at targets! No one went on a rampage and killed other kids. Can you imagine having such classes in schools NOW??? I can’t either. Why?

When I was in high school, children were taught right from wrong and we had RESPECT for others, even when we disagreed. We fought on the playground, sure. Bullying occurred–I was bullied, even before kindergarten! But parents actually parented and most of us didn’t want to get sent to the school principal who would PADDLE US! Now, I don’t believe as much in the corporeal punishment or guiding children using fear, but I do believe in encouraging children to RESPECT their parents, and follow their loving HEART. So, let’s start there. Let’s start by teaching Meditation in schools, and respect for things that can kill us, like medications/drugs, cars/motorcycles, and weapons.

Why do we argue when what matters is that we simply… BE Jesus. Sheila Murrey

I do all I do, blog, write books, and all of that to empower people to change their HEARTS! Let’s BE more loving. Let’s BE more respectful. Let’s BE more sane. Let’s help others make changes that will allow their hearts to guide them so violence is not the end result. I want us all to vibrate at a higher level to argue and disagree LESS and be able to live in Peace.

Do I believe we can, YES! Will we? I’m not sure. I have hope! Yet, in the meantime, I prepare. Do I have all the answers, no.

One of my friends posted something on Facebook the other day that shook me. She was highlighting the need for MORE gun control and more rules, and more, blah blah blah… and I didn’t say anything or comment, but that’s opposite where my gut feeling goes on this issue. And perhaps she forgot that a past University president (where we both worked at the time) QUIT his job for the University to go to work for a gun manufacturer!!!

Guns in the right hands, trained and skilled hands, for example SAVE LIVES! I’d rather be on a ranch with Ted Nugent at the end times than sitting alone in a cave meditating, though don’t get me wrong, I reach for ENLIGHTENMENT and I love caves, but when the army of insane maniacs are coming over the hills to ravage and plunder, I want someone who can help me protect myself and my family right there beside me! And I’m okay if you think I’m wrong, or if you disagree. As my first and highest thoughts are of FREEDOM and CHOICE. (and by the way, fighting for FREEDOM has been the driving force behind ALL of our USA military since the beginning.)

If someone entered my home with willful intent to harm myself or my husband, yes, we have a gun, and I know how to use it. Do we need a semi-automatic gun? No, but I might be able to scare off and fend off a would be attacker if we did. Thus, I am not against those. Besides, the criminals have them. That cat has already been let out of the bag, so to speak.

Does it come down to whether you want a slow dying process or fast one? I don’t know. And how are we “programming” people?

I pray as if it’s ALL up to Omniscience–God’s timing and act as if it’s ALL up to ME (in particular for myself and those close to me, as I know I cannot and don’t want to CONTROL the world). If I am to “go out” that way (quickly with a gun), then I am ready for the Grand Beyond. Do I hope others are not “taken out” that way, yes. But I also don’t want to see others suffer and go to the Grand Beyond by the “slow death” of chronic illness either. And that’s why I do what I do.

My dad took me hunting with him when I was growing up, and we ate squirrel and venison, rabbit, and so forth. But gradually over the years, my dad gained more compassion for the animals and quit hunting, but that desire, not to hunt anymore, came out of his HEART. He grew his heart over the course of his life to BE more loving.

And as an aside here, I’d like to say that when the powers that be take pharmaceutical ads off TV, I might reconsider my stance on guns, but for now, all I can do is raise awareness that EVIL lies in humans’ hearts, and it’s impossible to legislate morality.

Future humans take note: 5 critical things to watch

The Holy Bible says “Fear not” or some equivalent of that idea between 300-365 times, depending on the translation. And as well, “I am with you.” So, I give you this, not out of fear, but out of acknowledgment that I consider us ALL brothers and sisters. And I desire that you rise above the “programming” should you so choose, study and research the following. For there are those in power who attempt to control us, and I want you to take note of some important indicators to watch and increase your awareness, and perhaps even, prepare.

Fear Not.
Fear Not.

It may be a good time to know a “prepper.” I know you’ve made fun of your prepper friends before, but even if you don’t want to prep, it may be wise and it may ease any fear you already have, to make a plan.

We all know knowledge brings Power and great power comes great responsibility. The 1% know a lot they’re not going to share. I’m not in the 1%, but I read a lot, watch movies, and analyze.

Thus, here are the 5 things I think are of great importance for you to watch for (stay Aware of) in the coming weeks, months, and years–if it all lasts that long, not to be all doom and gloom, but it all hinges on Movement/Staying Put and Money/Resources.

  • You can’t control the prices of commodities or their availability: water, gas/fuel, perishables, and it should go without saying but I’ll add it anyway for those so “programmed,” paper products such as toilet paper. Rising fuel costs may hamper travel and shipment of goods.
  • You can’t work at certain companies (yes, already) without having the certain vaccine (I’m sure I don’t have to name them). Look at the job listings, many companies say you must comply with their vaccine policy. Keep watch on what social programs (aka food stamps, social security checks, and more) get tied to a vaccine policy. This may limit your income.
  • Watch what’s going on with Money. Do you notice what the large financial institutions and insurance companies are doing? Will they cover (pay or reimburse you) for your loved ones funeral expenses? Will your family receive your life insurance if you die of something they deem you could have prevented by taking a vaccine? What’s the deal with crypto currencies? Why is the US dollar losing its value? (Internet search “US dollar losing value”, “Central banks”, and Forex). You can’t borrow money on credit, buy a house, or even get a bank account without a good credit score and that’s been a topic (who controls the major credit bureaus) that I’ve been talking about with friends and family for YEARS. Watch what the credit bureaus are doing.
  • You can’t do whatever you want on your own land. We all know about imminent domain, property taxes, Home Owner Association and deed restrictions, and city/county ordinances. Just because you buy something, doesn’t mean you actually “own” it and can do whatever you like. You can’t just dig anywhere to bury a 55 gallon drum or bury a body. Even if you don’t add public utilities to your land, you must pay taxes and adhere to various ordinances.
  • In regard to Movement, (and circling back to fuel prices) one is now becoming very limited on where they can go. What countries are allowing you in or out? Where can you enter without some kind of documentation? Some friends have told us they couldn’t enter a restaurant in a city without showing some sort of medical “proof.” Another friend can’t sell their house because they can’t buy another with skyrocketing housing prices (in Florida USA). I say, stay put in the home you’ve been paying for all these years and never got to spend as much time in, as you were always leaving it to “go to work.” But some feel they need to travel. Then the question becomes, what price will you pay to travel, even up to and including sacrificing yourSelf to an injection? I said not to the Zika virus vaccine when I had the opportunity to hike through the jungle in Mexico a few years back to see a particular ruin that was important to me. Everyone has to draw the line somewhere for themselves.

Obviously, if you’ve reached my blog site, you know above all else I teach (and preach) personal responsibility and choice. So, if you are able (not hospitalized or otherwise institutionalized) you have the supreme choice over what is and is NOT injected into your body. I didn’t add injections to the list because of all the debate that exists on that topic. But it stands to reason that the only real control you have over anything is what you allow to be put into your body.

You are the only one who can control how you feel, and when you take back that power, then you become FREE! --Nathan Crane
You are the only one who can control how you feel, and when you take back that power, then you become FREE! –Nathan Crane

I know it can seem fairly bleak. I didn’t intend to go too far down the rabbit hole. But I wanted to put something out to offer the flip side of all the programming that’s been going on. I’m just one educated person who pays attention. And if I can see through the narrative, maybe you can too.

Good luck. (And that’s when preparation meets opportunity, you know that, right?)

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!

🔵 Mirror ball: Valuing ALL perspectives

🌱 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)

Clearing the Static

Clearing the Static

Just like the static most of us saw (after the last broadcast of the day on our television 📺 set), we (in our energy body or aura), can gather static around us that needs to be cleared daily.

Stay with me for a moment.

If you walk across a carpeted room on a cold day and touch metal, you may get a shock. That shock is an example of static electricity.

In the dark

You can’t SEE the static electricity, unless it’s dark and sometimes then, it’s visible. But nevertheless, the static electricity IS there.

And seeds grow in the darkness of the soil, so yes, we “go there” into the darkness inside of ourselves to ground and center. Don’t worry! It is not scary, it is freeing! Know thyself.

An exercise

Rub a balloon over a person’s head of hair and static electricity causes the hair to rise.

No one argues that static electricity exists, though mostly, it’s invisible.

It’s just physics. And physics is a Science that is continually evolving (as are we)!

Energy body

Why then, is it so hard to believe that each of us have an energy body? And that the state of that energy body can impact our health!

We can tune ourselves to resonate with EASE. We can make small adjustments to free our minds of static and confusion to feel less anxious, clear and confident—Connected to ALL.

Movies

Years ago, the movie Poltergeist made the TV screen static seem scary, like it was a portal into a dark and evil place. But I say, we must rise above the “programming”!

Law of attraction

Law of attraction

We all know that anything that has ever been created in the world first came as a thought, a concept, first. Therefore, thoughts materialize!

Read my previous article, https://sheilamurrey.net/2017/05/07/got-problems-opposites-attract

Mind your business

Your chattering mind may be telling you that negative, wrong, or hurtful things seem to happen to innocent people (and children). But dear heart, we don’t know why they came to live at this time in history, or the lessons they are here to learn. As well, other people’s problems aren’t really our business—unless of course, they ask for your help.

As well, when you get pulled DOWN by such thinking (about others), that is the law at work. Balancing ALL. ❤️🦋🌀

Now is the time

We are living in such awakened and conscious times! Yes! And we can look back and see the historical suffering that has occurred and learn from it. We are the ones we have been waiting for! We are the healers and light bringers. We can raise the vibration of the ALL!

True help

When you look at others who are confused or hurting, you desire to help. But true help, their growth—is an inside job (for them). You can be kind to them and offer them compassion, and comfort, but often growing can be painful.

Racists can be kind.

Meditate. Go within yourself to ease and clear your old patterns. This will expand the consciousness of those around you, as a ripple emanating in the water as a stone is dropped in. Those with lower vibratory tendencies will shape up, or ship out (and away from you)! You’ll know this is true as you begin to lighten up, and notice many around you, in your sphere of influence, living a lighter life.

Reach out

Reach out to me if what I have said resonates with you. I am in your circle ready to share tips and practices with you as you step up your inner game.

I’ve been where you are, doubting the law of attraction and that the path of least resistance is real. I’ve valued my intellect over my intuition too. But no more. Now, I observe detached from problems and focus on self compassion, play breaks, and time basking in meditation. I was one they said was “so serious.” I’ve lightened up and know you can too.

Light workers don’t hate

Lastly, you may consider yourself a light worker. But here is a big truth. Light workers don’t hate.

So, if you are struggling with that or find yourself questioning this truth, please reach out. I would love to offer some wisdom (and a whole lot of unconditional love), I feel will offer you freedom from some of the heavier thoughts you may be thinking.

❤️🦋🌀🙏☀️💦🌱

Be as water. Seek your own level.

Be as water. Seek your own level.

I am an independent person (and critical thinker) who beat co-dependency. I have learned that I cannot control anyone else, nor do I need to. I only ever need to manage my own Energy.

I have figured out a way to find balance and eternal Gratitude in ALL. There really is value in Everything.

Be as receptive as I / we / you can be. There’s no need to push against anything!

I sense that everything in life comes down to Balance. And that can be achieved. It is doable. Fix everything—no. But feel better, feel good more of the time—yes. Help yourself. Help others. Love. Smile.

Be as water. Seek your own level.

Be one who predominantly appreciates and loves.

If someone says or does something that upsets you, it’s okay if you don’t know or say the right thing “in the moment.” After all, you don’t have a staff of writers at your beck and call. And nobody’s perfect.

Just breathe and take a moment to ground and recenter yourself. Take a moment to feel freedom and peace within and outside of yourSelf. Balance.

In my experience, people either speak from their ego or their programming most of the time. It’s rare to talk with someone soul to soul, and priceless when you do! ❤️🦋🌀

My mission and mantra

I’ve read again my previous articles here and here and redefine my mission as follows:

In every moment, while BEing my deep, authentic self, acknowledging and integrating Source Energy (Spirit) in ALL I do, I release Ego and judgmental thoughts and hold true to my “GodBumps,” (as my physical guide, to remember “to thine own temple be true”), I will seek to awaken, and connect independent souls to their limitless talents and potential. I will empower them to shine their brilliance no matter what challenges come their way. ❤️🦋🌀🙏☀️🌱

On feeling the need for Protection

No protection required.

What is “Protection” about anyway?

It acknowledges (and often promotes) that there is anything or something “out there” to fear. And I want to “fear not.” I believe in a friendly universe. And Omniscience has my back anyway.❤️🦋🌀🙏😉☀️🌱🎼

On feeling down

Whenever I am feeling low, or in a down state, I reach for “a better feeling thought”, typically one of the enveloping Omniscience that exists in and through ALL (that immediately dissolves BS, whether it be from others, or of my own making), or that Everything Resolves to Gratitude. Then I say aloud, Thank You. I see it all as the Universe bringing ALL back into Balance. Lessons learned and healed. ❤️🦋🌀😘

Present moment

Why live in the present moment?

  • To feel freer
  • Audaciously awaken
  • Fully engage my authenticity
  • Function from a positive or neutral place
  • Open to new awareness
  • Balance any imbalances
  • Embrace limitless possibilities
  • Empower mySelf and others
  • Love and nurture my independence
  • Be open to receive MORE out of life
  • Worry less
  • Fear less
  • Notice ALL of the abundance around
  • Focus on the far-reaching effects
  • Release old programming
  • Ease out of old unwanted habits
  • Connect MORE
  • Commune deeply
  • Communicate with MORE clarity

Our minds tend to get convoluted and play tricks on us. Sometimes referred to as the “monkey mind”, our individual minds often skew our reality according to the “old tapes” (phrases) that play over and over in our heads, fears, conditioning, past traumas, invalid prejudices, opinions that belong to others—not our own, beliefs that no longer serve our highest and best version of ourselves.

When you are aware your mind is filtering your reality based on the past, you can change it with that awareness. In fact, awareness is the change.

I never understood “worry.” I’m too independent and determined for that. ❤️🦋🌀

COVID-19

I thought you couldn’t believe in things you can’t see? This virus has expanded your thoughts about the unseen things, hasn’t it? Now, do you understand the phrase, We Are All Connected?

So much love… to you, through, and around you…I feel it too (though not as severe as you experienced yesterday, but who knows. Maybe my time is coming. And now, thanks to you, I will know more). So, for me, it is all the other changes we’ve been going through, plus when I go to the store, I see many empty sections: no eggs, less vitamins, no rubbing alcohol (wanted for bug bites, not for hand sanitizer recipe), etc. I had to really force my conscious mind to notice the fresh produce, and canned goods, water, and so forth. It is all so weird. I am quite a mix of energies at the moment.❤️🦋🌀

On death

I feel into this and it aligns and resonates for me. After losing (in the physical), both of my parents in the last couple years, and having beautiful visions from both of what they experienced during/after their souls departed, I no longer see death as any kind of end. I’ve never feared death, though I used to cry a suffer through grief when anyone close to me died-especially pets. But, after seeing all I have seen, some of which is on my blog, I do not grieve anymore.
All we need to do is love and keep our intentions pure, always helpful, always kind. Because in the end, Everything Resolves to Gratitude.
Amen and Namaste. OM ❤️🦋🌀🙏

Mirror neurons and Soul-connections

I learned long ago that we cannot change another person. The habits they have and their personal characteristics are held deep within themselves—they may hide certain habits to win you over too. But, what they showed, that attracted you to them. For example, in the beginning of the relationship if they cursed a lot, you thought it was funny or cute. Ten years later, when your significant other curses, it annoys you. Really, that is your issue. You’ve changed. They haven’t.

After a year of dating, another year of cohabitating, and then five years of marriage, my mirror neurons synchronized with my husband’s mirror neurons. It took a job loss, our two doggies getting older and slowing down, and my proving to him that we couldn’t pay for our house (that at the time we had 25 years left on our mortgage), to get him to come around to the idea of full-time RV living. But, two weeks after we had moved into our 5th wheel—and I am NOT KIDDING—he sat across the living room from me and said, “I love this! We own this? Why didn’t you MAKE me do this YEARS ago?” Hahahaha
I about fell out of my chair!!! I don’t MAKE him, or anyone, DO anything!❤️🦋🌀🌱🤩😉

From the sacred texts

“We can escape this world by giving up attack (negative / social conditioning) thoughts.”

—A Course in Miracles.

“Be in the world, not of it.” —Holy Bible.

“Ye are of this world. I am not of this world.” —Quron

Daoist thought has been interpreted within the Dao De Jing (and Zhuangzi) to reject, or become unattached to ones body and the material world.

And we find the Hindu words that seem to point out a need to find receptivity or be alert to:

“…that which is not of this world.” —Veda

Amen, brother. Awomen, sister. We know our LIMITLESS, Ever-Living, Filling-ALL-Space, Creator, Source, Omnipresent, Omniscient, Omnipotent, God!!! Namaste. OM ❤️🦋🌀

Put your hands together when you meditate and pray. (It connects the circuits.) 🙏

Soul Connections

I LOVE talking with others about deep topics, God, Spirit, visions, dreams… ❤️🦋🌀

I connect with so many people and on such a wide range of topics, that I am never lonely. I feel we all have the ability to connect on a soul level.

I am passionate about connecting you (We Are All Connected) to NON-TOXIC, “It can’t hurt you” foods (like raw vegan foods), health products and holistic methods that I personally use (see this and this) because they truly work—they nourish us—and my knowing (from a deep spiritual place) is that we’re all okay in our well-being.

We are—each of us—wholly well WHEN we remind each other, which is why there’s not only one of us here on the planet! We are each a fractal of Omniscience and bright shining as the sun. ❤️🦋🌀🙏☯️🍀🌹

Loneliness

What’s the difference between being Alone and being Lonely?
I always knew there was a reason I loved that old song, “Love the one you’re with.”
I’ve learned not to put anyone on a pedestal. Actually, I have had to learn that more than a few times.
And as others here have said, family isn’t always defined by blood.
Spending time with and being present with those you love is the best gift any of us can give/receive. And if you don’t have anyone, go find someone new. After all, there are 7 billion people on the planet. No one needs to be alone.
Oh, and loneliness is not a lack of people, but a lack of purpose.
And all of that wisdom cost me a lot more than two cents!❤️🦋🌀🎄🎁💫

We’re livin’ Off Grid

More off grid living

It looks idyllic, doesn’t it?

Our new camp spot

Our RV spot

From the first moment we arrived at our new camp spot, I felt at home. Like I could really breathe here.

It has been one month now, since we moved to family property in north Florida. And we have been living off the grid, (that is no electric power pole, no city water or sewer, no landline phone, and no cable).

In this article, I’ll specifically focus on our Energy needs.

First, we powered our RV (a 36 foot 5th wheel), by running a gasoline fueled generator.

A week or so later, we bought 12 gel golf cart type batteries. By adding a large bank of batteries, we would run our generator a few hours a day—typically, 4 or 5 hours depending upon what we plugged into the outlets, or if we cooked on the stove, or used the microwave.

We quit using our hot water heater, large refrigerator, and air conditioner the first day. They were simply power hogs, and we could immediately see how inefficient they were.

12 battery bank (build in progress)

We’ve ordered our 12 solar panels, so that will be the next step. And if all goes well, this setup could last us several years. It will pay for itself within a year or two (more or less). Not in energy cost savings, but because we aren’t paying lot rent to a campground or park.

It’s been a bit of an adjustment to live a sustainable and simple life in Florida, where the temperatures in February can vary greatly during one day.

Hermit-land

I wanted to move to this place for more than a year. And right before we took the leap to move, my friend Lauren told me I might grow from being a hermit (or spending some time alone, as I like to think of it). Thus, as I sit to write this, I think I’ll call this place my hermit-land. It even has its own share of ferns, moss, and faerie-like homes, which amuse me.

Faerie homes? Old Florida

I’ll share some of my top reasons next, for moving here. Though, since relocating, I’ve discovered several more reasons. And these are not in any particular order:

  • Never lived in north Florida
  • Yearned to be with family
  • Desired to commune with nature
  • Wanted more room to walk
  • Ached for peace, quiet, and serenity
  • Longed to plant a garden (again)
  • Wanted to learn how to manage my own Energy
  • Do more with less
  • Read more
  • Play more music
  • Discover new places
  • Be closer to the Florida line for ease of travel
  • To fulfill my dad’s dream
  • But didn’t want to own property again
  • And didn’t want to pay lot rent

Easing into it

Learning how to managing one’s own Energy can be challenging, especially for us older folks. So, my son decided to show us how to live off grid, by having us plug into and run a generator for power during the first two weeks. We had some cold nights, and tripped a breaker when we turned on our electric fireplace.

We ran several checks to determine what we could run efficiently. And we made the necessary changes.

I chose not to run the hot water heater, because I had adjusted to lukewarm and cold showers (Thanks to Wim Hof’s teachings), and my son provided hot showers on property in a nice standalone bath house. Plus, I could warm a bit of water on the stove for washing dishes once a day, as needed. No need to keep multiple gallons of water hot all day and night long.

We chose not to use our big refrigerator (that had came standard in our 5th wheel). We borrowed an apartment sized fridge from my son and it suited our needs—especially after our food stock changed.

A few weeks after we moved, we began hearing of the Wuhan China (later termed, COVID-19), virus, so we had additional restrictions placed upon how much we could explore. For instance, we had discovered a few good restaurants, but they closed down, or only served take out orders. And our idea of checking out the parks and springs had to be put on hold too. We have been able to walk the property and adjust to our new daily routine, albeit not as easily as we might have hoped.

Some of what I love the most about living at our new spot, is being able to hang out with my son, cook, and enjoy the evening fires. Oh, and the stargazing!

Fire

We’ve gotten a little too much nature at times, such as being bitten by various bugs. And we’ve experienced strained muscles from lifting jugs of gas, plus a good deal of sweating during mid-afternoon heat (though we’re parked in the shade).

Note: we’ve not been running our air conditioner, though we could for awhile if it is the only thing plugged into the generator. And I have actually been feeling BETTER! I attribute it to less stress, less noise, and breathing natural air!

Learn how to live simply

My son runs the Dude Off Grid Facebook group, where you can see videos and more, and learn how you can live off grid too.

Cut costs, get out of debt, and help the planet! Sure seems like a win-win situation to me!

I don’t think there’s anything more fulfilling than learning how to Take It Upon Yourself to learn and do things for yourself. So much self worth and self esteem comes from that. Bravo son! And thank YOU for reading.

Borders, boundaries, and walls

Boundaries

Isn’t it interesting that as the author of The fences of religion, I’m now making a case for a border wall? I’ve turned the kaleidoscope to look at this subject in a multitude of ways.

To every season, turn, turn, turn.

Information has recently come my way in defense of a U.S. and Mexican border wall, and I know many of my readers may be surprised (even disheartened), as to my feelings on this hotly debated issue.

But, as someone with skin in this (as my husband is one of the more than 800,000 furloughed workers–because 800,000 only counts the federal employees and my husband is a contractor), and much of NASA is closed down, I thought I should weigh in. I don’t have to go public with my opinion–so, grant me this before berating me, okay?

I’ve written about some deep topics on this blog before, though nothing political. That’s because as a registered Independent, I don’t vote in either primary election.

I was raised as a Republican, and changed to a Democrat in my 30s. Now, I’m pretty much fed up with the two major parties and lean towards the Green or Libertarian parties. We need to govern by the Constitution.

Wall of water

Remember the wall of water near the end of the movie, The Abyss?

Abyss wall of water
Abyss wall of water

That’s kind of how I see this southern border wall issue. In the movie, the aliens needed to remain in the water, but Ed Harris needed to breathe, so they parted the water forming a water wall, yet continue to communicate.

In an upcoming article, I’ll tell you why I believe “the veil” is a temporary boundary.

Temporary

Walls are a temporary measure (all man made things are temporary), until hearts and minds change and there is no more need for “protection.”

Protection

Until the word, PROTECT, is removed from the dictionary, the constitution, oaths, etc. we need border security. We need to at least slow the flow of illegal immigrants from coming across the southern border. Besides, the democrats voted for the wall when Obama was president. They can vote for it now. I’m tired of the childish BS. And I’m really tired of the propaganda.

The question really is one of protection. And anyone who’s read my blog, Take It Upon Yourself, knows how much I love to dig into the real questions. The deep questions.

When we get to the mindset that “it really is all good” and that there is “value in Everything”, perhaps the emphasis will shift from protection to compassion and connection (which is what I inherently desire). This is why I’ve been silent on this issue until now.

Under construction

I didn’t know until the other day that the Army Corp of Engineers is already building The WALL in sections, and replacing sections of old wall! So…this IS happening no matter what the Dems want.

Other walls

Israel has a wall. Israel says that wall is for border security. And from what I’ve read, Congress had no problem funding it (no problem continuing to send money to Israel though they have a wall). I don’t like what’s going on there either, but that’s another story and why I wouldn’t want to live there. Thank Omniscience I was born in THIS country.

The great wall of China certainly served a purpose in its time.

Great wall of ChinaGreat wall of China

Division in Nature

Every living thing has walls and borders—including us. It’s called skin. Cells have walls. Organs have walls. Walls are necessary to control order and flow.

If our blood vessels didn’t have walls, we wouldn’t live very long. So, it seems walls are needed to ensure things work. Division is necessary for a design to work.

Holism and Oneness simply allows for ALL to work.

One of the beautiful things about the Universe is how it organizes things, but I digress. I just don’t think walls are inherently bad. There is value in Everything.

Applying logic

For some time now, I’ve been on the fence about this whole issue, because by nature, I’m a “don’t fence me in” girl (note the picture of my granddaughter at the mountain top park fence), with one of my favorite songs from the 1960s being, “Tear Down the Fences.”

With my nature to explore, roam, etc. and be migratory (we are full-time RVers and I am of Native American heritage in part), I am all for having the freedom to move about. But, I can’t walk into someone else’s house uninvited. I can’t scale the wall of my favorite actors home without being shot. And I’m glad there are electric fences and armed guards around prisons.

But, as I looked at the picture of Jennifer at the fence today, my AHA moment was that the fence protected her from falling over the edge (of the mountain).

Don’t fence me in
Don’t fence me in

Notes

Philosophically and spiritually, I agree with those who say that borders and walls separate. Obviously, right? I mean, I’m the one who writes that We Are All Connected. And for many years, I have said that you cannot legislate morality.

I watched the Berlin wall be taken down (and had a chunk of it), and supported the fall of the wall at the time. However, hearts and minds have to change first.

I am always seeking balance, and because I doubt much that is shared from the far left and the far right, any negative comments will be deleted.

Life’s short. Feel good. ❤️🦋☯️

Me too. Until now.

From Oprah’s historic speech

“I want all of the girls watching here now to know, that a new day is on the horizon. And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say, ‘me too’ again.” Energetically stated by, Oprah Winfrey, when she accepted the 2018 Cecil B. DeMille award during the Golden Globe Awards 2018. #GoldenGlobes

https://www.facebook.com/GoldenGlobes/videos/1884721461569863/

You know, every time I watch Oprah’s Golden Globe 2018 Cecil B. DeMille’s lifetime achievement award acceptance speech, I become so emotional. I understand that it’s not just because of the words within the so well-crafted speech that connects Oprah (along with us) back to her childhood, or even her captivating and powerful delivery. Yes, her speech builds up to a certain momentum–that’s true. But, Oprah uses this time, so elegantly, to teach us a grand history lesson about Recy Taylor and Rosa Parks. And to emphasize why that lesson is so important.

Sheila Murrey 2008 to 2018

Definitions matter

While I understand that we may not always share the same word definitions, personally, yes, very personally and deep, Oprah’s speech resonates with me. Why? Because I have “been there.”

History of harassment

I have been in too many situations where I have been sexually harassed, intimidated, berated, held back from raises or promotions, mentally and physically abused, and more. And whether through ignorance, immaturity, or low self-esteem (low self worth), on some level, I allowed men (and even a few women) to belittle, bully, manipulate, or coerce me into doing things that—at least at the time—were not in my best interest and made me feel even worse about myself.

Inner Strength

Yes, you may think that I am strong. And many times I had to be strong. But I am sensitive, more serious than joyful, and quiet. I studied, prayed, and doggedly pulled myself through it all, (believing always with God’s help—even when I found myself in the most brazen of situations) because I had children to raise. And while I learned, forgave, and mustered through, there were times I faltered. There were times I got angry and stood up for myself and my children. But those times were rare, because it seemed there was always someone else standing near to be critical of my stance, not knowing (how could they?) of all the prior bullshit I had endured.

Only because of where I am now can I say, “Everything resolves to gratitude.

The end game

Because now, I get the end game. I’ve glimpsed the Great Beyond that awaits us all, where all of the tiny entanglements between us, all of the reasons, and nearly inconceivable intentions will be revealed!

I understand We Are All Connected, and that we are on a mysterious, yet marvelous journey in this life. That every little thing matters. That love, faith, gratitude, and joy are our rewards, and that we can experience them NOW.

The gratitude I carry with me today having come through all the chaos, does not mean I think it’s okay for abuse or bullying to occur, nor do I think it’s okay for anyone to remain in an abusive relationship. However, I know not everyone in an abusive relationship knows HOW to ask for help, or HOW to get out. I know that they may feel trapped.

Hope

More to my point though, is that I believe in hope, even if it’s only a glimmer, or only a fractal.

Take one step forward, then another. Hope. Ask. Share. Trust. Move forward with faith that you can heal, and that you can be free.

As my wise sister-in-law has taught me, “never let anyone steal your joy.” And there is always something to be joyful about, even if it’s only breath!

Live while you’re alive! Do things with people who fascinate you! Dream big!

Focus

Only you see life through your eyes. Only you can decide what’s right for you.

To those who do not like Oprah, or do not understand her speech, it’s probably because you have not been through hell, or not the kind she spoke about.

I would encourage you to refrain from judging her speech on snippets, pundits remarks, or whatever political motivations you might think she has, etc. because for some people (like me), her speech was so vindicating and liberating that we may never be the same!

Be IN Joy

I’ve been waiting a lifetime to hear it! And I am not alone. So, please, don’t steal our joy!

Thank you, Oprah!

Here’s to the many who will be empowered to say, “Me too. Until now.”

Be the person your Soul knows you are!

Namaste. OM
