Hey everybody, just thought I’d give a quick check-in and let you know that I updated one of my older posts, https://sheilamurrey.net/2022/10/22/couple-of-thoughts-while-i-drive/ because I felt like it needed some help with subheadings and a different picture. Oh, and I changed the title of it too. I think when I wrote it, I was probably in a hurry and had reused a picture from just a couple of blog posts earlier. Yeah, so I found a picture of a queen. Well, the queen who passed and I put that in there.
The point is this word I’m sitting with right now because I am driving and I just passed a gentleman who was on his bicycle. So this word dropped into my mind of recycling, I guess from cycling. I stopped. He was at a pedestrian crosswalk and I don’t know legally if I’m supposed to stop for a bicyclist at one of those crosswalks but I did. And then I realized there were two other cars behind him trying to turn into this particular park. There was a slew of people trying to get out of this park.
There was nobody behind me so I didn’t have to stop and they would have had their chance to go as soon as I passed, but I went ahead and stopped. I waved him on because I assumed he was turning left and he was! I let the other couple of vehicles to go ahead and make their left turn and then I noticed a couple of people coming out and turning, right and that kind of thing. So I thought, Who knows how long they’d all been sitting there waiting? But I was obviously at the end of the line of the thread of cars that had been by there.
So I’m on my way to Reiki and I had this idea of recycling. And again, these thoughts sometimes it’s just one word. Sometimes it’s a whole phrase and it will just “drop in“–I learned about drop in thoughts years ago from working with Dr. Alison J. Kay, which if you’ve been subscribed to my blog for many years, you will know who she is. Previous post: https://sheilamurrey.net/2016/01/10/what-happened-after-attending-your-sensitivity-is-your-power-teleseries/ where I speak of her gifts and talents.
Spiral thought: She’s still practicing energy medicine. She’s a life coach. She’s a yoga teacher and physical trainer. She wears many hats. But most often I think you will find her doing running Theta healing sessions. She’s traveling a lot. She goes to the UK a lot. She goes to sacred sites a lot. Interesting. that she would be traveling to sacred sites of UK and Ireland as before she’d always been going to Asia.
Alison and Patricia
I didn’t realize she may have started the UK travel about the same time I became interested in traveling with Patricia McGivern.
After we went to England, Ireland, and Scotland and 2019 I saw that Dr. Alison was also going to Glastonbury and the sacred sites in the UK. So I thought that was pretty cool. It’s just interesting that and they’re not necessarily running in the same circle. They may or may not be. I don’t know how well or if they know each other. But I know I seem to be joined to Patricia, at the hip because of everything that’s happened synchronistically in our lives.
Richard and I, having moved back to Merritt Island a few years ago for him to return to work (after having been retired for six years) for two years. And that’s where Patricia grew up (Merritt Island). She went to Merritt Island High School. So she was, you know, really, of course, interested in seeing everything that I posted (on Facebook) from her hometown. And then we became interested in living in Dunedin where Patricia used to have an office for years (her and her husband), but since the pandemic, they have worked from their home.
The point is we just seem to be kind of crossing each other’s paths and of course, she has been instrumental in not only my awakening to the messages that have come to me from the Other Side, not just messages that dropped in when I’m meditating, which was where I was going with all Dr. Alison taught me, who was one of my meditation teachers and taught me that concept of when the thought drops in versus when it’s churned from the mechanization of the mind. That’s the difference, but you know, I went into the past life regression and hypnosis (with Patricia) which I did not do with Dr. Alison. So that’s the difference (for me) between these two wonderful ladies, teachers, mentors, and friends. Patricia is a hypnotherapist and a past life regression author. Dr. Alison is an author as well.
I’ve been very drawn to authors for many, many years because…
Saw myself as a teacher
I always saw myself as a teacher. In fact, way back to when I was in school. And given that I’m going to come back to recycling for many years and other spiral thoughts here many years ago when I was in school, I could just see myself teaching. And I could see myself teaching even when I was in my first career job at RadioShack.
I was teaching customers how to use their first computer and things like that. I was doing a lot of instructional things, just hands-on and practical and pragmatic type of teaching. And then when I was a district trainer out in Texas for a year I was writing curriculum and doing adult learning classes and years before that. I had been doing some teaching when my boss couldn’t do his nighttime college classes. I was teaching adult learning classes–basic computer application operation 101 and those kinds of things. A lot of older folks at that time were learning about computers. I subbed for my boss. He asked me and I worked for him during the day, so I mean, it was kind of like I couldn’t say no, but I loved it.
I always love getting that opportunity to teach. Yeah, the odd thing is I never wanted to go to college to become a teacher. I have family who did that they became teachers and in K through 12, but I never wanted to do that. I never saw myself teaching children. I always saw myself teaching adults even as a child.
I matured very early and always was included in adult conversations with my parents, mostly my mom and her friends and family. So I sort of don’t remember a whole lot of being a kid you know, I was always hanging out with adults and or a few of my friends who were also very mature (for their age). So I always felt like I was better with adults. I always felt like I could show adults the stuff I was learning in school and bring something new to the conversation.
There are many ways to Recycle
Okay, so this word recycling drops in and here I am recycling. I’m recycling memories. I’m recycling. This whole concept of who I want it to be. And the universe just dropped it in my lap essentially. And so I got a lot of joy out of all the times that I was able to teach people. The recycling comes in and makes me think about what comes in and needs to go out. There you go! Recycling easy definition. I don’t just buy something, pick it up, use it, and then throw it away. I recycle it. I reuse it or I use it in a different way which would be innovative, right? I’m now an innovator because I’m taking bringing something in and I’m then using it but then I’m recycling it and reusing it differently. Maybe completely different than what it was intended to be used for.
A friend of mine (from school days) posted yesterday (on Facebook) where she took an old silver teapot and repurposed it as a planter. I asked her if she put rocks in the bottom. I was thinking perhaps she had a hole drilled in the bottom. I thought especially for an indoor pot you would have to have a hole in the bottom and she said no, she just put some rocks in the bottom. And so far the plant was doing fine.
So I love things like that and (the recycling of) thoughts the same way. Like if you’re an artist and you paint a picture or you draw a picture, gift that. Keep it around as long as you want to enjoy it. And then you repurpose it. Recycle it. Re-gift it to someone else. It was a gift to you right because Spirit brought that into you or the model who posed for your drawing or whatnot. So let’s say somebody gives me a gift and I use it and I learned something from it. My Kaleidoscope or my mirror ball or something like that, right? I use it. I suck out all the juiciness of that gift. And I learned as much as I could from using it, from sitting with it, from looking at it, and from letting it inform me right? And then I recycle it and gift it to someone else. I’ve done that a lot with books. So not only do they get the gift of the book, but my notes in it as well. The things I underlined. My thoughts about certain topics within the book. So I just think that’s a good thing to do.
When we learn something we bring the information in. Let’s think about recycling that information. Let’s think about how we can spin it back out into the world you know, and maybe even send it with more love and attention, and intention. Right. And action. Attach something to it. Very cool. All right.

p.s. I had drafted this post late last night but didn’t get a chance to edit and add the tags, etc. til this morning. I was going to put it off until later. But something compelled me to do it NOW. Do you know what compelled me? Checking Facebook and seeing the following post from a spiritual friend:
The image caught my eye because it looked so much like how I saw myself in a past life (as presented in this blog post: https://sheilamurrey.net/2022/08/28/continued-past-life-regression-workshop-notes-from-group-session-with-patricia-mcgivern-27-aug-2022/) and the text of the post jumped out at me when I saw the word, RECYCLED! I mean, WOW! Was that not the Universe speaking to me or what??? Haha! (and giggle giggle as my friend Nikki Payne would say). Are we having fun yet?
We really are recycled butterflies and ALL of that!
Omniscience knows ALL. Omniscience is always with you. You are never alone. Thank you and blessings to you and many in all ways. OM
Be the best version of who you want to be–because if you’re reading my words your soul is probably beckoning you to align with it and live up to your highest ideals. Not perfect because who is perfect? Most stagnate or ‘get stuck’ while on their way to being whatever they think perfection is. Making progress is enough. Carrying your Karma lightly is enough. Be kind to yourself while living responsibly. Who you ARE affects us ALL. We Are All Connected.
