Me – 42 years later

Me – 42 years later

Rewriting my 1978 poem

My 1978 poem, “Me.”

Now, that I’ve broken free from the drama of my youth;

Having learned what it means to heal and become whole;

And written, spoken and sang many times about all of that;

Having traveled through many of the states I’d dreamed of;

I’ve found myself, and continued to be:

Steeped in history;

Fascinated by my ancestry;

Serene near the ocean;

Entranced by magical trees;

Engaged with mystical rocks;

And mesmerized by waterfalls;

Raising children at the World’s Most Famous Beach, and lastly at the Jersey shore;

Enjoying the beach sand in summer,

The endless sway of the palm trees,

More than watching the games people play;

I’ve lived in the middle of the USA in the icy winter and visited snowy New England,

To usher in new technology and witness twin granddaughters birth;

I haven’t always been true to myself,

but I’ve experienced magnificence growth in ALL.

I’ve found excitement, romance, pain, and peace;

I’ve discovered that I’ve always been me, in ALL ways—whether happy or sad;

And I am thankful.

I am content.

I was me all along.

And I put all of me into my children, the good, the bad, and the beautiful;

My soul hasn’t changed much, but my mind and heart has expanded;

Widening my perception;

Deepening my compassion;

I’ve enhanced my understanding of so many things;

And calibrated back to balance;

To continue to bloom where I am planted.

Me – 42 years later.

Observations about the author

Conversations surrounding emotional balance, moral ambiguities, and deep spiritual truths (such as We Are All Connected, and Put Your Hands Together When You Pray), are what Sheila is most passionate about. She feels a profound empathic Connection with people and what they’re going through by merely sharing her own truth, by speaking freely about her personal struggles and the challenges she continues to overcome. Sheila strives to ease lonelines, help those exiting toxic relationships, and to remind us all that we are stronger than we think we are, and that Everything Resolves to Gratitude in the end.

Easing and releasing emotions while playing a game!

Easily release emotions with game play

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.”

Sheila and Susan Spilman with Fast Track for Kidz
Sheila and Susan Spilman holding the cards in the game, “Fast Track Technique for Kidz.”

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.”

Connect with Susan here: https://www.susanspilman.com/

And learn about this incredible technique here:

https://www.ftt4kidz.com/

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!!

Soul-aligned dream jobs

Soul-alignment work = DREAM JOB

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:

https://women-wine-and-wellness-brevard-chapter.square.site/s/shop

Why?

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:

The last note I had leads me to read more about Dr. Aseem’s work: http://doctoraseem.com

BIG Announcement!

I am looking for partners to CREATE the following:

I watch a job board called, Natural Industry Jobs –> https://www.naturalindustryjobs.com

Acupuncture

Chiropractic

Composting

For example, Wayne Dyer has passed on, and so has Louise Hay, but there are so many other people like Gregg Braden (Hay House manages Gregg’s customer service), Dr. Joe Dispenza, Dr. Bruce Lipton, Wim Hof, Nassim Haramein, Neale Donald Walsch (I know he has his son helping him with the tech stuff), Markus Rothkranz (does all his own stuff–I think), Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith, Chris Cade, Nathan Crane (does all his own stuff), Hippocrates Health Institute, Patagonia, Whole Foods (and other organic grocers), Gerson Institute, Gaia, Spiritual Cinema Circle, Ecoland organic clothing, Dr. Gabriel Cousens, Tree of Life Center, Barbara Brennan, Donna Eden, Dan McDonald, Byron Katie, Oprah (though she probably uses executive search firms–???), Tim Ferris, East West College of Natural Medicine (and other colleges), Integrative care institutes and practitioners, The Shift Network, Natural Awakenings (and other similar magazines), and much more!

All of these bright shining ones HIRE people and I don’t know what job boards or recruiters they rely upon to find honest and reliable help who actually ALIGN with them and their offerings!

I’ve also reached out to life coaches that coach clients on how to find their dream job. But where do they point them?

Who’s with me???

This site now has 1800 followers (200+ from our wonderful WordPress community! Thank you!!), so it seems the time is right. It’s exciting!!

Reach out to me! Perhaps this is YOUR Jerry Maguire moment too!

Thank you, to 201 WordPress followers!
Total followers—Thank you!!

Happy Metaphysical New Year

Happy New Year!

2019 looks to be starting off with a bang of metaphysical synchronicities. And I love it!

Happy New Year to ALL! Hang on as it might be a bumpy ride, but I feel it’s gonna knock our socks off when certain revelations are revealed.

Happy New Year
Happy Metaphysical New Year

I’m excited for what this year’s going to bring. I’m content with Now, having learned to allow and flow as water over the rocks (obstacles) of life, laugh, love, focus more on what I enjoy (IN joy), and let go–really let go–of anything I can’t control (while understanding most is none of my business to try to control)!

Let’s do this.

Just BE.

Breathe.

Enjoy each moment.

Move our body.

Nourish ourselves.

Laugh.

Grow.

Relax.

And just be some more.

It’s our time, Now.

New to my blog?

Omniscience always strengthens me.
I have made a powerful Free Will (Conscious CHOICE) to use my unwashed brain to study and seek alignment with my soul, which is always connected to Omniscience LIMITLESS Creator God, as I continue to live, move and have my BEing.
I write about how we can shift our thinking from past conditioning.
I write about how we can take responsibility for ourselves “to show thyself approved.”
You’ll find scriptures in my blog, yet that makes me no better than anyone.
I was taught not to cast my pearls before swine, yet how can I judge?
I write to a global audience with the awareness that my words will reach who they will, and if they encourage or ease one person’s suffering, that is enough for me.
Here’s a link to a long study on the Beatitudes that I wrote:
I now help others know how they they align in every moment with Omniscient, Omnipotent, Omnipresence and live free from dogma.
Call it what you will. I call it the Truth that sets each FREE!
Thank you. Peace ✌️
Namaste. OM

In a recent dream of my mother, she encouraged me to enjoy talking with my friends about sacred journeys and to see the book of Kells, which joyfully, I’ll be visiting in September 2019–that changed to June/July 2019–see the link here:

https://www.patriciamcgivern.com/sacred-site-tours/

 

P.S. I wrote the following 4 years ago, and it still applies:

Perfect example of “Bloom where you are planted” huh?! So I will also say, “…even if you can only produce ONE beautiful bloom!” Happy New Year everyone. Just BE happy where you are!

Bloom where you’re planted
Bloom even if you can only produce one flower

Then POOF and it’s gone

Then POOF it’s gone

Sometimes I wake up at 3am and lay awake in bed for an hour or more, hoping to go back to sleep, but my mind starts to drift. Sometimes I get up and quietly write something on the computer (for my blog, or the book I’ve been writing over the last ten years). Sometimes I meditate, pray, cry, and then meditate some more. Other times I go on a crystal journey (meditating with one or more special crystals near or on my body), which nearly every time takes me on an inward path where I find the gentle solace of a holy place.

Take time

Spiral Energy by Sheila Murrey

My grandfather used to say, “Stop and smell the roses.” Somehow, I feel when I wake up in the middle of the night, it’s because I didn’t take time to smell the roses that day, or if I did, now I’m caught up in the mystery of it ALL. Had I been as fully aware as I could have been in that moment I was smelling the rose? To understand I was standing in the presence of something timeless? Grace washing over me? My thoughts become almost tangible and palpable. As I lay in bed, my heart becomes so open that I think it will leave my body! My huge open heart resonates with a feeling of connection with ALL.

Everything happens for a reason

I believe everything happens for a reason. I cry about things that cannot be changed, about which I feel guilty, or ashamed. Gradually, I let those thoughts go. I remember good times. I remember the friends and family who have transitioned. I miss them. I cry some more. Then, oddly, I begin very slowly, almost like a train steadily slowing as it arrives at a station, to breathe, and allow myself just to psychically embrace each of them. I remember each persons face, what it felt like to be near them, perhaps as we were going somewhere, dancing, talking, or such. I send them my love. I tell them, “Though I miss you fiercely, I know you are in perfect health, wonderful peace, and like the molecules of air around and IN me, you are still near me. And I love you. Thank you. Thank you ever so much dear heart for ALL you gave me. For helping me be who I am NOW.”

Sometimes after a stretch of time, I fall back to sleep. Other times, I write for hours before deciding it’s time to shower and get ready to prepare for my day.

There have been times that the connection I feel to my friends and loved ones, during these middle of the night mental sojourns are so strong, they seem vividly real. But, more often than not, the “visit” is faint, and dissipates into a near whisper. I am imagining, right? I mean, just because it feels real, it cannot be so. Or can it? As I do not limit God, perhaps there is a way to connect and spend time with my loved ones–and I am not only referring to those who have passed on, but even with those who are not living physically near me.

Empty space is not empty

I don’t pretend to know what fills empty space, though the new frontiers of science is finding that what they used to think was empty space, is actually “filled” with “something”–though they do not yet know what. Could that mean that my mystical musings in the middle of the night are when I mysteriously meander through a holy place? It certainly does feel like it’s a sanctuary for me.

Unaware

I’ve learned that when I move too quickly through a day, too caught in all of the “doing”, that I can easily walk by people, places, and things, unaware of the blessings or hidden messages that they might provide. Have I “walked by” people, places, or things, too preoccupied to notice the richness, the magnificence, or the subtle profound vibrations each offer me?

Realizing that I can always STOP, and consciously choose to pay attention to even the smallest of things, my heart dances with joy! I am open!

Heaven on Earth

I actively seek. And I know when we honestly seek, eventually, we will find. I do not need a crown of jewels when I get to Heaven (whatever do people expect to do with those anyway?) but instead, I’d rather trade anxieties for peaceful moments, sadness, feelings of loss, or thoughts of missing those I love most, into balanced emotions, joy, and dare I say, pure bliss NOW–while I’m alive! Isn’t that the true definition of having good mental health?

I go back again and again in my mind to my grandfather’s mantra. Regardless of the season, weather or time of day, I don’t want to miss the roses. When I leave this place, my spirit, mind, and body will have lived fully, changed much, and heartily, truthfully, given as deeply as I knew how–to those who received me.

I speak a mindful thought to someone. Then POOF! And it’s gone.

I would love to introduce you to the Resonance Academy! If you’re interested in Frequency, science, or just how everything is connected in the Universe, I think you’ll want to join the academy with me! Ready, set, click here!

Live and breathe Love & Gratitude 

Thank Omniscience ALLways. OM

Could a good rest help to ease your troubled mind?

Rest to ease a troubled mind

I write a lot about spiritual things in this blog, but mostly because I understand the profound impact your spiritual understanding has on your mind and overall state of well-being.

Potential solutions

Would you like to stroll on the subjective side of this topic for a few minutes with me while I offer a potential solution to your mental unrest?

Journey into a realm where rest and ease can calm your troubled mind…

Breathe

Being healthy and well (or what most people call ‘wellness’) is not only how one feels physically in their body, but includes the state of one’s mind, or mental health. Mind-body, or holistic health includes things that help us relax (mind and body), release pent up tension, laugh, restore ease, increase our feeling of worthiness and belonging, improve our physical flexibility and stamina, and bring balance back to the body.

Your head is attached to your body, and IF your head is where your mind is (as most believe), your mental state can influence how our body feels. How can traditional western medicine (allopathic medicine) only treat your head, without understanding its relationship to the body? It seems to me, and to many others whom I converse with on the subject, that we need to take time for ourselves and learn ways to ease our mind, beyond the escape of merely sleeping away our concerns.

Conversely, perhaps mania and depression are triggered by inflammation in the body? Or by environmental factors? Side effects from other medicines, substance abuse, food, or alcohol?

Get unstuck

If you’re feeling the need to:

  • Get unstuck from the status quo
  • Learn tips that you can utilize in your day-to-day life to ease your mind
  • Rest and relax in a beautiful and tranquil environment
  • Eat delicious and nutritious organic food
  • Give yourself time and permission to reset your mental state
  • Go from feeling “blah” to brilliant

Help

Take It Spiritually Upon Yourself

We Are All Connected

I research, experience, and share about many of the ways we’re Connected. And because we are All One, we can feel good, never lonely or in despair–as we are never alone.

We are never alone
We are never alone

Energy

Everything vibrates, and there is an underlying Energy behind, beside, above, and below all — in fact, holding everything together! Observe nature. There is an organization in the veins of a leaf, a snowflake, and the rhythm of the ocean waves. There exists an unseen Energy that is Limitless, Ever-Pulsating, Be-Ing, Filling-All-Space, and will never end.

Spirit

Most people refer to the beautiful and unending abundance of creation as God, Intelligent Design, Great Spirit, Divine, The All That Is, or Source. Indeed, the Bible refers to God as Omnipotent, Omnipresent, and Omniscient. There are quite possibly more names than you can think of for our Omni-everything Creator! This begs the question, if we can’t even settle on one name for our Creator, how could one religion or spiritual practice be the only way to worship or reconnect with Omniscience?

I write in depth about Energy, Analysis, Focus, and Intention. My blogs, books, tweets, and more offer a living philosophy you can use–in any moment–to be happy always, no matter the circumstance.

Passionate about Natural & Holistic Health and Wellness, Self-Transformation, Self-Help, Empowerment, Self-Analysis, Feeling Good, Unconditional Love, and Personal Responsibility — I live my beliefs by incorporating all things natural, simple, and green, into my daily experience.

I live a naturally simple, healthy, and vibrant life by personally using a variety of natural health and wellness products, eating right for my body by blood type (and as many organic foods as possible), along with implementing alternative health modalities as needed for mind and body rejuvenation.

Happiness

Stuff doesn’t make people happy. What makes people happy is having more time to do the things they enjoy–with the people they love. And I agree.

If you find someone consistently lets you down, or disappoints you–maybe you’re asking them to be someone they’re not. Sit quietly and ask yourself, “Am I happy here?”

It’s better to feel good than be right. You could lower your expectations of others. Everyone is usually just doing the best they can. And you always have a choice of where to be. So, put yourself in a good “happy” place inside, okay? When you’re happy inside, you can be happy almost anywhere. 😉

Many blessings! Namaste

Juicing, Paleo, No-Grain Diet, Mostly Vegetarian – Who needs labels?

Many diets. Who needs labels?

Okay so I am finally ready to reveal my new diet. I have been doing this for several months now and it’s working. It’s really working. I have lost weight effortlessly. Gained vitality. Renewed my body Temple. And increased the frequency with which, I feel connected to Source Creator God, and all of you. We Are All Connected.

We Are All One. Yes, yes, and yahoo… YES!

Many diets. Who needs labels?
Many diets. Who needs labels?

We are what we eat and absorb.

Here’s the deal about diet for life (lifestyle) change:

I drink raw vegetable juice — everyday. At least one 16 ounce raw veggie juice, often 32 ounces. Plus water. Monday through Friday–I only juice during the day. And if I don’t have time to juice for myself,

I buy juices from a raw vegan cafe; thank you Ionie’s Cafe! Ionie’s vacuum seal the juice in glass mason jars.

I pack my juice in a ThirtyOne bag (with ice) and enjoy at work. Then, for the evening meal… I eat a light meal or soup for dinner. That’s it.

If I feel the need to eat something, I will mix raw nuts and seeds, typically only a 1/2 cup or less and throw in my work bag. Mostly pumpkin and sunflower seeds, walnuts, pecans, almonds, and brazil nuts. I eat a bit more on the weekends, but nothing outrageous.

The weekday light meal? Primarily, a can of Amy’s Organic soup, or a salad with grilled or broiled fish. Now and then, I will have some other vegetable like broccoli, sweet potato, or asparagus, but rarely white potatoes. On occasion, I will get a beef patty (no bun), or a steak, but I suspect I will only do that once every two or three months. I have basically lost my desire to eat meat. I like turkey once in awhile too, but we always look for the less processed, organic variety when we buy it.

I am not eating any processed sugar — unless you count wine. I had some sugar over the holidays because my daughter makes (and ships) chocolate truffles from New Hampshire and I love supporting her, so I had a few of those (one a day, every other day). Yes I am attempting to be transparent here. This also keeps me humble and on track. I do not desire to cheat because that’s only cheating my Temple.

UPDATE 1/1/2016: No more truffles and a lot less wine.

Let go of diet labels

I am learning that I am a cross between a raw vegan and a paleo or no-grain eater. I am not a 100% raw vegan because I do still consume eggs, honey, fish, seafood, and very little meat. But I put into daily practice much of what I learned from being a raw vegan back in 2009-2010. I love raw vegan nut cheese instead of dairy cheese. Whenever I eat dairy cheese I can always tell the difference. I’ve also learned that my body does not digest raw tomatoes very well.

As for spiritual growth

As for the spirituality aspects of clean eating… the other night a lady asked if I go to church. I answered a triumphant… No. But then I thought, why would I when I believe my body is the Temple. Yes, with a capital T. And I believe all of your bodies are Temples too. I believe in God-made, vs. Man-made. I will always. That is a core belief of mine. Hmmm. I just misspelled belief as belife. Isn’t that interesting? I corrected it but now I am thinking be-life is actually better!

Fasting

I am finding that by fasting during the daytime on weekdays, it has heightened my spiritual awareness, including also a physical awareness of how much people around me EAT. The over consumption in America is disheartening. It’s not wonder so many of us are overweight and miserable. I highly suspect our bodies were never meant to be in this shape, and yes, round is a shape.

Focus

I am focused on learning more about energy medicine. By changing my focus from food: what to eat, how to make it, when to buy it, etc. I definitely have more time available for reading, sharing, and learning about energy, frequency, brain waves, intuition, etc.

Feeling good

Case in point, this week I took my first Jin Shin Jyutsu class. I am amazed how how wonderful I feel! I feel good, really good.

I mean, I always feel pretty good. Can’t complain. But on occasion I’ve experienced vertigo (ever since working at the Space Center, which I felt may have had something to do with it). The vertigo would come and go. I felt that I had to be watchful when it came to doing any task that might set it off. Laying on a massage table for a massage, at times, could cause me to experience vertigo. Forget about head down yoga postures!

So, the other day after 30 minutes of Jin Shin Jyutsu – both of my ears “opened”! I was ecstatic! Now I can flip my head over to put a towel on my head after getting out of the shower! Yay! Yahoo!

About faith, timing, and living life more abundantly

The Bible is full of stories about how God created us in His image and wants us to live life and have it more abundantly. To me, those understandings mean that He provides for us, in all ways, for our health, and for our needs. I think we’re the ones that think that means He will always answer our prayers and give us what we desire, but I do not think so. I believe our needs are always, in ALL WAYS, provided.

Sometimes God withholds some things, and some answers, for a later time for us, when we are prepared to handle those things. This is why I believe God’s timing is always perfect. And blessed assurance tells me that is why, when the student is ready, the teacher arrives.

Have faith. You know, faith – which is the opposite of worry. Faith IS the substance of things not yet seen. That said, worry is actually a sin because God tells us to have faith. Exercise your faith by taking care of yourself. The Bible also instructs us how to eat and move our bodies, but how many of us follow those instructions? I think it pleases God when we learn about those and practice those habits. Pork is not the other white meat. Pigs are dirty animals that have no sweat glands. Quit dishing on PETA people and take an honest look at what they have to say. Or talk to a pig farmer. Watch a documentary. Just don’t eat pork. Make it easy. Those parasites in pork, yeah they live through the cooking process. And really, the more crap you eat, the harder it will be for you to feel good. I’d bet it also shortens your life. And if you believe suicide is a sin then dying a slow death by eating stupid silly non-beneficial foods is a sin too.

Now, I am not preaching all this stuff to make you feel guilty. Just quit complaining about what other people do and think about what you do. Study to show thyself approved and make one small change at a time until you feel good. I am not above anyone. I am human and I fail. But God has been showing me some things. So, I am sharing what I learn in an effort to help you feel good. Nothing more. Be healthy. Live well.

What’s not needed

Quit running to doctors and putting your faith into what amounts to be medical witchcraft (Yes look up the history, especially all of you who are so fast to point a finger at anyone who believes in another religion). Those big pharmaceutical companies you love so much are a cog in the wheel of the beast. They do NOTHING to cure anyone. They may prolong life but in what state? They do not cure. They ease suffering perhaps. They mask symptoms so you never DO anything to heal your Temple. In my estimation, they are the liars. They are the ones who are selling you false hope. I am tired of hearing people’s excuses why they need this or that drug from a chronic illness. Your lifestyle, mostly the food you’re eating, that’s what’s chronic. 

Go to the doctor if you break a bone, but for asthma, digestive issues, migraines, back aches, arthritis, inflammation, and more… seek alternative advice. I am not a doctor, nor do I prescribe any treatments or solutions. I am shaking you awake! Take It Upon Yourself to live your best, most vital life!

As for exercise, meditation, and Jin Shin Jyutsu

Jin Shin Jyutsu is an energy medicine art that I have decided to focus on this year. I am learning (thanks to reader comments and friends), that it’s best to meditate, then perform Jin Shin Jyutsu, then do my daily stair climbing. That makes sense to me. But I am always trying to maximize what little spare time I have. I work full-time. So, I do the stair climbing when I need a break at work. Thankfully I am able to take a 10-15 minute break twice a day, and my stair climbing has improved so much that I can climb 8 flights safely, and return, within that time. Much less actually.

Exercise works the body, and meditation dedicates the mind. I will learn transcendental meditation (TM) at some point.

The pulsing, or vibration that I feel when I practice Jin Shin Jyutsu is simply amazing! I feel God bumps when I talk about it! I need nothing outside of myself to validate anything for me.

I am connected to my breath, I am enjoying all the self-care I have learned about this past year. I am excited and hopeful about the future. All really is well.

Announcing a new book

I have a second new book coming out in February, so stay tuned for more on that. The name of the book is, The Energy of Receiving by Happiness Publishing. My first book is doing well on Amazon. You can find it here –>> Transform Your Life, Book 2 Inspirational Stories and Expert Insights.

Living a blessed, blissful, and happy life in balance

Live blessed and blissful in balance

To live a blessed, blissful, joyous, and happy life, to me, means living life in balance, squeezing all the juice out of life in the present moment while aware and conscious of God, (Source, Holy Spirit, Energy, Creator), the Divine Presence that is all around and through us. I refer to God as, Omniscience.

My work

My “work” (day job) is not just what I do Monday through Friday each week to earn a paycheck. My job provides me the time to learn how things work, including how I respond to challenges and stress. My work environment often causes me to consciously acknowledge how energy works because I find many contrasts there!

❤️🦋🌀

My main and utmost job though, is to myself. To grow my inner being, true nature. I work on mySelf on spiritual and energetic levels.

Live blessed and blissful in balance

God Bumps

I focus as Spirit leads me, where I feel the internal bodily sensation of “God Bumps” (thrill bumps, chills, tingles, and ripple-like feelings).

The more I feel these God Bumps (or GodBumps) the more that sensation occurs whenever I meet, have a conversation with, or sit in the presence of other beings who are also on a path of enlightenment.

God Bumps are my way of describing how “aligned energy” feels, as it resonates within my body. Typically, this “energy alignment” brings me to the present moment, to be conscious of the fact that I am a spiritual being (with a soul), having an earthly experience.

I seek out (and visit again and again) the people and places, that cause me to feel God Bumps. I believe I feel these sensations because I am an empath. I actually feel it, when I make a soul connection with someone. I also blog (write) about it! Click here for my other articles.

Not above or below

I’ve always held a belief that no one is more worthy–of spiritual enlightenment, fame, a huge salary, or any other so-called measure of success–than anyone else. More is going on.

I’ve always felt some sort of injustice, while reading about the huge salaries and bonuses some people receive, while many others are barely making ends meet. Do some people really work harder, smarter, than the rest of us? Clearly different classes of people have always existed through history. A few who live very well, while many thousands, even millions subsist.

Also, I have prayed for the upliftment of religious leaders caught up in scandalous activities. Not that everyone who is a spiritual leader or teacher is perfect (save one), but I hold such leaders to a higher standard – and I think many of us feel that way.

Jesus – The Christ

Speaking of the perfect one, I was brought to the knowledge of our Holy savior, Christ Jesus of Nazareth when I was young. My mother taught me of Jesus’ perfection as He was/is God made flesh. I am of the mind that God made Jesus to show us the true way of enlightenment – and how we are all energy.

Jesus did not look upon illness or dis-ease, He saw us in our whole (Holy) state of being. That is so when you study of His many miracles. He asked the lame to “take up thy bed and walk” because the man had to believe he COULD walk – before being able TO walk! Jesus already knew the man COULD walk, that walking was within the man’s ability. Jesus healed the woman (or helped her to experience her healing) who merely touched His garment because she reached out to Him by faith. Remember the Holy scriptures tell us that Jesus said, “your faith has made you whole.”

Jesus came to show us, teach us, of our inner Holy/wholly state, (our divinity) – but sadly many people still do not “get it.” That is why He said, “Many will come in My name, but deny the power thereof.” Power = energy.

Energy

Energy separates us from the inanimate objects man creates. We cannot breathe life / energy into anything we make.

Our babies get their Spirit, energy, breath from God, Divine Source. God breathes and works through us and all living things.

Earning and Worthiness

We are all inherently worthy to have our needs met – even our desires.

If one person can somehow manage to “earn” a billion dollars, then others must also be capable. If one person is able to feed millions, others must also be able. At least the possibility of attaining our desire is possible.

I believe we have a great responsibility. Not only to take care of ourselves so we can help others, but to acknowledge our connectedness. We can attain wonderful health. We can attain wealth – understanding that wealth means different things to people.

I know some will not receive my words so well, because they believe some have more advantages, are stronger, more driven, or smarter than others, but that is really coming from a lack mentality. I believe all have the potential to succeed in life, even those who are told they have some sort of disability. We are only limited by our thoughts and imagination. We are limited when we do not understand, do not know, that it’s ALL energy.

We are Energy. Every living thing on this planet has energy running through it.

Examples

Once at Disney I was asked “what is innovation”? At the time all I could think of was, it’s the entire scope, big picture – larger than any one invention. I wasn’t complete in my answer.

Innovation is taking other things, and putting them together in new ways.

We are innovations – energy building blocks put together in different ways, we look different and speak different languages, believe different things, but the common thread among us is the foundational component of ENERGY. So in this very magical way – we are all connected and able to help, sustain, and heal each other. We are called to recognize and honor this fundamental knowing.

I also worked with a lovely gal who reminded me to use the essential oils that I had. The oils had helped me so much in 2005 to release asthma from my body, and because they aren’t processed through the liver, one can heal without putting a load on that crucial organ.

If you have difficulty letting go, work to heal your liver, as it is a storage place for anger, resentment, bitterness, hatred, jealousy, envy, addictions, and a host of destructive feelings.

I learned to place a drop of Release oil blend on my belly to ease stored emotions from the liver. Of course, drinking half your body weight in ounces of pure water daily and doing a liver cleanse is helpful too.

My Calling and True Nature

I believe working with Energy is my true nature, my calling.

Energy is fully functioning, omnipresent, and omniscient in our being. Dis-ease is when we disconnect (for whatever reason) from it.

With every breath, God. With every heartbeat God. Pray without ceasing. The best prayer you could ever say is: “Thank You.”

The reason I love “laying on of hands”, and other healing energy work, is because it honors and places our Creator, Source, God as our supreme healer. We put our ego aside and ourselves in neutral–healing intentions unattached to the outcome.

I worship God when I pray or in other ways, work to assist others in the health and healing of their bodies. This is why my quest is to learn more about energy healing and resonant frequencies. Ever on the look out for how I can better assist others.

The most wonderful masterful healers I have discovered include (yet not limited to):

Joan Massey (Affordable Acupuncture, South Carolina)

Alison J. Kay (Healer, author, radio show host, coach)

Dr. Laurie Zakresky (Divine Books, Madeira Beach)

Dr. Bauduin at Madeira Beach Center for Natural Medicine

John of God (Lives and works in Brazil – connected through Crystal bed at First Unity Church, St. Petersburg)

My daily mission is: to consistently and joyfully manage the contrast between the things that frustrate me, (which cause me to ask for improvements in my spiritual, yet earthbound experience), and reach for better feeling thoughts. Doing so assists me in keeping my body at ease to receive the divine blessings God has in store for me (which, Jesus came to show as our birthright).

In other words: To be joyfully aware of LIMITLESS, Filling-All-Space, Creator Omniscience in every present moment.

To me, this is the sum total of living a blessed, blissful, joyous, and happy life – everyday, no matter the circumstances.

Always remember we walk by faith. Conscious in every present moment. We walk in Light and are never alone. We are all connected.

Namaste and love,

Sheila
