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?)

On Empathy and being an Empath

As a highly sensitive person and empath, I experience the feelings of others.

I love to find new ways to think and feel that help me keep my heart open to others (and my ego in check. Meaning maintaining a healthy ego—not being egotistical). ❤️😉

On empathy and being an Empath

The Power of Like and Connection

A friend of mine, Michelle Howe, runs Empath Evolution. I highly recommend her and her work.

About Empathy, Michelle writes, “The POWER of LIKE…….. is really the power of connection…. it’s not about how much you know…. or, what you look like….. or, how much money you make…. It’s the power to put others at ease within conversation and CONNECT to FEEL GOOD with one another.

It’s so interesting….. In making my decisions, this one little thing overrules the rest of the stuff. I have to really enjoy someone which, means our energies compliment one another…….
You know it immediately… it’s like a soft pillow.”

And my reply was:
I love that! And now I feel even better about myself as I have often been told (in my tech career), that I easily put others at ease. ❤️🦋🌀😉

Speaking of Power

After watching the story of how Sly Stallone got his movie, Rocky, made—I made the following observations:

Sometimes we do things (things of which, we may not be so proud), but all of it had to happen, just the way it did, for us to build our character, and allow us to have compassion and empathy for others. For when we walk empathically on the Earth, we can be real and genuine. And then, when we make it to what most perceive as “the top,” we carry ourselves with grace, and easily off grace to others.

I can only speak for me, but I think keeping my ego in balance, taking responsibility for all of my thoughts, words, and deeds, using natural health solutions, and staying grounded, are all major reasons I am drawn to Shamanism.

Empaths and Boundaries

I wholly agree with Sadee Whip.

Sadee says, “I often hear people who identify as empaths talk about how overwhelmed they get, how much they take on the energy of others, how hard it can be feeling so much of what is going on around them, etc.

My dears, what you are actually identifying is not the burden of being an empath, but the imbalance you are experiencing at the lack of your own developed warrior energy.

Warrior energy is an ability to use healthy anger and righteousness to set boundaries, say “no”, and properly protect and defend oneself.

If you are experiencing problems being an empath, seek to bring about balance and wholeness within yourself.

  • This means use your voice.
  • Say no.
  • Tell people they are full of shit when they are.
  • Don’t let others walk all over you.
  • Don’t let others disrespect you.
  • Don’t give of yourself until you are depleted.
  • Ask for what you need.
  • Accept responsibility for your circumstances.

Being an empath, I promise you, is not actually the problem.

Learning to be open and not bleed out is an art. One worth practicing. Focus on your warrior energy and bring that into balance with the empath energy and you will find both peace and power.”

And to this question:
How does this work for healers – mental health therapists, social workers, teachers, etc? I can only say no and set boundaries to an extent in my daily life. My entire day involves saying yes to walking with others through their trauma and pain.

My friend, Andrea, shared her answer:
It’s more about people letting others energies in. Picture your own personal energy space surrounding you about three feet out, with a pink cord from your heart out to others. We stayed connected to others by the pink heart cord, but we don’t let others energies into our personal, self contained space- unless we want to.

This practice is one people can learn to keep others energies from affecting them, draining their energy and so forth. One can do energy clearing every day, from head to toe, visualizing a silver waterfall (and if you do this while showering it can be even more effective, as water is extremely energetically and physically cleansing). And then you can visualize your body surrounded by white or gold light. You can also visualize the violet flame inside your chakras too. This burns off all residual energies of others. (Many thanks to Andrea for this recommended practice!) You can read more at: Andrea’s Personal Blog.

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”!

Split energies

Split energies

I’d been hearing for awhile about how we can experience energy drain, procrastination, and such by allowing our energies to be split. Or said another way, we can feel drained by focusing our energy in different directions.

Yin and Yang are split energies.

Innovators

Yet, innovators like Anousheh Ansari (first female private astronaut), Elon Musk, and Naveen Jain (who is mining the moon) don’t seem to have any issues with “split energies.”

They are brilliant, forward thinkers, who have a focus on space, with still a foot grounded in reality.

These modern masters (I won’t go as far as to call them spiritual masters) speak about the future as if it is present our day reality! Have they mastered the split energies of yin and yang within themselves? And is that our only work, to keep our yin and yang energies in BALANCE?

Soul’s purpose

If we “buy in” to the spiritual concept that our soul’s purpose here is to learn from and understand our human experience and then gain clarity on its vision, we might consider the visionaries I named, modern day mystics.

As Abraham-Hicks teaches, when our soul gets clear (even for as little as 17 seconds), it shoots out ‘Rockets of Desire’ which manifests tangible results (whether we see or act upon these is a whole other story).

The modern day spiritual or mystic pioneer is manifesting at a level beyond what most of us do, and they seem not to have any split energy issues.

In the end

In the final analysis (from what I’ve learned thus far), everyone has an opinion about everything. And most love to express it. Some want to force others to change and believe as they do. That’s called, Control.

Most of us allow our Ego (a part of our mind), to hold tight to our beliefs (to the extent that we cut ties with relatives who think differently!) Ugh. Gasp! I know. 😢

But we can’t know ALL the answers. And we can’t change anyone except ourself (and that’s hard enough). We can come into Balance though. It is possible. Love and Life can find a way.

After ALL (in the end), Everything Resolves to Gratitude. ❤️🦋🌀🙏☮️☯️🎼

Is God Real?

Is God Real?

For many of us, WE wouldn’t even pose this question. And yes, I do draw a distinction between “real” and “exists,” such as if I were to ask, “Does God exist?”—a similar, yet different question.

WE undeniably KNOW God is—but, is the isness real (as in physical matter), or spirit?

Those who know God is Real don’t just believe, but came to this knowing through experiencing God, via our senses, by way of esoteric phenomena that we can only attribute to God.

I believe atheists and doubters have asked either or both questions at some point in their lives, because everyone experiences some things that they can’t explain.

I’m not here to change an unbelievers mind, but I would like to present a slice of my reasoning for believing the answer to both questions is YES.

Defining Reality

Any good survey starts by providing definitions. So, let’s examine my previous articles to provide my thoughts on the definition of “Reality.”

https://sheilamurrey.net/2012/09/16/are-we-real/

https://sheilamurrey.net/2014/06/01/reality-is-only-what-we-perceive/

And as interesting as it is to attempt to define Reality it is even more thrilling to ponder a definition of the undefinable enigma, God.

God, Omniscience

I have been sharing my innermost thoughts about God, Omniscience, for several years (since my first audible experience in 2005). Links to my previous articles follow:

https://sheilamurrey.net/2019/08/23/about-omniscience/

Hearing from God

In the article, Research Is Shedding New Light on Hearing Voices, the author writes that William James, who established the first experimental psychology laboratory in America at Harvard, concluded:

God is real in the reality of the impacts on those open to the possibility. Considering whether or not to choose such openness, James decided that it is more beneficial to act as if there is a transcendent that gives an ultimate meaning to life.

William James, Philosopher and Psychologist—Father of American psychology.

Granted, not all believers in God claim to have heard God’s voice, such as Neale Donald Walsch, author of the series of Conversations with God books. Nevertheless, most believers do credit God with healings and a variety of phenomenon (such as synchronicities) that cannot otherwise be explained.

My friend and fellow spiritual author, Elliott Eli Jackson also writes of conversations with God in his series of The Sapiential Discourses books.

Sacred Sites

This is a huge topic, and one that I have written about before, so I won’t go into it all again, except to provide a list to my previous articles and say that I continue to reap energetic benefits from the time I spent at Newgrange in County Meath, Glendalough, Ireland, Stonehenge in England, and multiple sites in Scotland, especially on the grounds of Rosslyn Chapel and castle, Isle of Skye, and the Faerie Glen.

Meditating inside the stone circle at Stonehenge.

Right from the beginning of our trip, while “playing” and seemingly “having fun,” I was opening and picking up clues of what would come. https://sheilamurrey.net/2019/12/03/game-of-thrones-tour-dublin-ireland-winterfell/

Life After Death

As you may recall, I wrote an article, https://sheilamurrey.net/2019/04/19/a-surreal-vision-of-soul-departing/ after my dad died (crossed over to the Grand Beyond), which was quite the profound experience. That surreal experience, as well as others regarding my still born sister, Christina (link in the section: Metaphysical Experiences), lend to my knowing of Life After Death, and add to my beliefs of Omniscience (my name for the unknowable Dao, or God).

Friend, film producer, co-founder of the Spiritual Cinema Circle, and author, Stephen Simon has now, published a book with his beloved wife Lauren (who crossed over to the Grand Beyond in her sleep). I am so thrilled their book, What Dreams Have Come: Loving Through The Veil, is available on Amazon.

Update: The Kindle version is available! I have read it and have a book review in process! Love it!

What Dreams Have Come book cover

Also from the same Psychology Today article,

Studies with non-clinical populations have suggested that people are especially likely to hear hallucinatory voices during times of loss or bereavement. In one study, 30% reported hearing the voice of their deceased loved one within the first month of their death, and 6% still heard them a year later. In another study, 13% of persons heard the voice of their deceased spouse, including some who had been widowed up to 40 years prior to being interviewed.

Metaphysical Experiences

To date, thanks to the metaphysical experiences I’ve had, I have learned that we’re never alone. This knowing gives me eternal peace. The following articles offer a glimpse of the experiences I’ve had:

Turning towards Spirituality

Because I just can’t put all my trust and faith in any ONE person, concept, or teaching anymore, I have turned towards Spirit to lead and guide me.

I consider all I have learned up to this point in my life, as guideposts. Like training wheels help a child learn to ride a bicycle with proficiency and under self locomotion, that is how I view all religious instruction. Good for a time, but once you’re strong and steady in your knowing, and you have fully integrated Spirit, God, Source, Divine Essence, live the Dao, accepted the garment of the Christ, etc. you’re walking your path.

Mom, why did you bite your fingernails?

Mom, why did you bite your fingernails?

For as long as I can remember my mom bit her nails. And I always wondered why. She used to tell me it was “just a habit.”

My mother was a woman of strong faith, having been raised in a devoutly Christian home. She was also a deep thinker, earnest student, and hard worker. Mom’s parents never argued in front of their children either. So, what caused my mom to feel inferior (which can be a cause for such types of habits)?

As an aside: I picked up the habit from my mom and bit my nails for over 20 years. I had low self esteem as a teen, and often thought I had an inferiority complex!

Asking the question

Now, in my fifties, one morning (three years after my mom’s death), I sat in meditation and silently asked, “Mom, why did you bite your nails?”

The answer: “It was a way of hiding.”

And I got an image of how one hides a smile behind a hand, and when a man twists his mustache hair. I never had the thought before that one can hide behind their hand while biting one’s fingernails.

Hmmm, hiding? Hiding from what? I quickly retorted in thought.

Almost as soon as the first answer came, the second came. Hiding her soul.

How does one hide their soul?

Then, I was on a quest.

Why and how do we hide our soul? And is this a fight with our inner-being?

Are we reserved in behavior because we are afraid to let our innermost thoughts out?

Do we feel we will be judged?

Why would my mom have felt she would be judged? As especially in her youth, when presumably her nail biting started, she would have had no reason to fear judgment.

But, my mom was painfully shy. Always preferring to stay in the background. My mom preferred solitude to group gatherings—unless the gathering was in church (but even there, she didn’t like the spotlight).

Do we question our power?

One of the only times I saw my mom speak publicly, was when the church congregation was asked to share an individual testimony (of God showed up or intervened in their life).

I would listen to my mom’s personal testimony with awe, each and every time. And I had often wished my dad could have been there, at the prayer meeting, to hear mom’s words. Mom spoke with a gentle tone, but at the same time, a commanding authority. To me, this meant mom was speaking from a profound knowing. From a place of truth.

Are we afraid we can’t live up to the expectation of our soul?

As I searched the Internet on the subject of our soul, I found a series of quotes by author, Parker J. Palm. One of his quotes that caught my attention follows:

Parker J. Palm quote

As soon as I read Parkers quote, I realized he had also touched on the soul phrase given to me in the early 2000s that set me on my Awakening journey. The phrase, which became my mantra, We Are All Connected.

In summary

So far, the way I commune with my soul, and share what I find, (that aligns with the lessons I have learned by sitting with these questions), is the way I speak and share about the mantra, We Are All Connected. We Are Not Alone. And that we are more powerful than we can imagine.

Community means never losing the awareness that We Are All Connected.

Whether we feel less than, insecure, are shy, fearful, or that we may not express our truth in a clear way, we CAN speak and share from our soul, from our innermost truth. We simply need a courageous push or willingness to do so.

Perhaps we are old souls. But that is a question for another meditation. OM

About me

I have a passion for WORDS and Connecting people. In particular, I love speaking and writing about spiritual and consciousness raising topics, holistic wellness and simple healthy living. I am empathic, intuitive, compassionate, and kind, with a keen and unified wisdom about life.

I’m an Amazon bestselling author of two co-authored books: “Transform Your Life Book 2 Inspirational Stories and Expert Advice” and “Energy of Receiving”, available on Amazon. Plus, I’ve written a health book (in the making for 13 years), Take It Upon Yourself to Live a Wholly Vibrant Life, that’s available here.

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.

Walking in another’s shoes and waiting on the sun

Walking in another’s shoes and waiting on the sun

Is it possible to walk in another’s shoes? Really? To see and even begin to understand another’s plight or their perspective on life?

I’ve tried on used shoes before and they hurt! Physically, they can throw your spine out of alignment too.

A whole lot of us are trying to understand our brothers and sisters pain right now, because we innately know, We Are All Connected.

How can you see life through the lens of another’s experience?

We must access knowledge.

How do we gain insight when we can’t trust the media or mainstream narrative?

We can watch and listen to those we know. We can open our hearts and minds to those we meet. But we still may find ourselves upset and off balance.

Ethnicity

I am of English, Irish, Dutch, German, and Native American lineage (Cherokee tribe).

And my grandmother was persecuted for being Native American. But, though I remember a few of her stories, I didn’t live her life.

I only learned the few stories that she chose to share with me.

I was 18 years old when she died, and I was only really ever interested in her stories during the last few years of her life, because I was focused on being a teenager.

We all bleed the same color.

Humanity trumps race

A friend of mine has called for all of us to check the box: Other —and write in HUMAN, whenever we have to fill in ANY form that asks us for our race and ethnicity.

Are you willing to do that?

I am.

I consider myself a mixed bag anyway, and have never thought of myself as “privileged” because I have worked (since I was 15), for everything I have ever had (even putting myself through college, putting braces on my teeth, etc.).

Brutality

As I mentioned, my maternal grandmother told me stories about how she and her Native American ancestors were persecuted—some of her elders had been forced to walk the Trail of Tears.

I have a book about the Trail of Tears and haven’t even been able to read it—yet. As I recall, I had nightmares from watching Roots when I was young.

We don’t watch TV, but I see headlines when I log into web applications for my work. And on breaks, I see stuff on Facebook. But, as an empath, I have known for several years that if I am not careful, I can easily get sucked into other’s drama, because I always feel that I can help ease their pain–somehow. (See my 2016 article: https://sheilamurrey.net/2016/03/08/walking-more-than-a-mile-in-anothers-moccasins/

Does the color of my complexion, mean my pain doesn’t matter?

Everybody hurts

I have been bullied, lied to, cheated on, yelled at, cursed at, gaslighted (way before I ever knew what that was), left alone to fend for myself and my two children (when they were young), raped twice, betrayed, abused, kicked, shot at, had my car taken away while I was at work (and left with no way home), had my ex sneak his way (behind someone with access to enter) into my office and scream for me to come home, and thrown out of our house (with all our belongings thrown on the driveway)! So, I can very much relate with agony and PAIN!

Is that what you want to hear? To see?

I RISE!

With every fiber of my BEing, I take it upon myself to RISE!

I alone am personally responsible for how I feel, and how I respond. I have mastered being quiet. Now, I need to speak!

I believe we can all RISE together—if you are willing to put forth some effort (and acknowledging that your level of effort may differ from mine and that’s okay)!

I am all about personal responsibility. I hold myself, thoughts, words, and actions to a higher standard. And always here in ALL ways to offer a hand UP.

Complaining and Protesting

I learned years ago, that protesting, as certain people and groups are currently doing in cities across America, would never feel good to ME because I am a peacemaker by nature and by what life has taught me to be.

Years ago, I tried to take part in a march against Monsanto. And I tell you, I was fired up and READY to march. But, I felt the Energy shift in me when I arrived on the scene. I saw some hypocrisy among the organizers. And I saw the money being made. I felt my emotions had been hijacked, so I left. I remember distinctly making a conscious choice to leave and not sew any seeds of discord. I chose to never use any chemical product of any sort again. I chose to become more connected with my food and what I put in and on my body (See my Being Wholly Vibrant blog.)

Discord

Now, I realize there is a time for Everything.

I do not have my head in the sand.

I had to sit with a situation that disturbed me this week. And then, I asked the Universe why it had to happen THIS week because our generator quit, we live off grid, and only have the SUN to supply our power needs. Plus, we aren’t receiving much sunshine all week due to a tropical storm in the gulf! Frayed nerves!

I just had to sit and receive what I could learn from it. And remember to activate my faith.

Remembering lessons

  • I always have the power of choice and can choose to balance my emotions
  • Complaining adds to the discord and never makes me feel good
  • Judgment keeps me sitting and spinning in repeating patterns
  • Not my circus, not my monkeys (though this week it WAS my circus!) LOL
  • I’d rather laugh than cry!
  • We are going with the FLOW of nature, and wanted that so much!
  • No one can FIX anyone else
  • It is an inside job
  • Only I can manage my own Energy
  • I wanted to be one with the earth (now, hoping more above it than below it!)
  • I know everything happens for a reason
  • I know Everything Resolves to Gratitude

As of today, going through what I have, I now know that I am more of a Creator, than a Destroyer.

Last night was a full moon. I took some time to hold ceremony outside, though I could not see the moon for the full cloudy sky.

I remembered cutting the cords of repeating patterns three years ago, but here we go again. And it’s okay.

Energetically, I cut the cords of all of our karmic and ancestral wounds for my granddaughters and the generations to come. No curse remains.

Here and now I state, my grandchildren will not have to take any historical family burdens upon themselves. They can be self-filled. Self-motivated. They can help others as they choose. Free spirits! They can care for themselves first, without guilt. They can choose to do what they love! They do not have to repeat the sins of their parents, or of mine. They do not need to try and figure anything out. The past is the past and it is abSOULutely done.

I continue to sail on this ship of fools. And it’s ALL okay. Everything is in motion.

To find my feet upon this beautiful earth, I keep repeating: BE HERE NOW.

At some point, in the spiral of time, humanity will learn to appreciate, honor, and even revere, the CONTRAST that brings about Creation.

I am human. I am imperfect. I am empowered. I am free. I am LOVE.

How I am like Trump

How I am like Trump

This is not a political post. This is a psychological inquiry into mySelf and human nature.

WARNING! You may not like this post of self examination because it may challenge your own personal beliefs or biases. So, only the strongest of will, most open-minded, and highly mature persons are allowed. Hahahaha! Not really. But sometimes I feel like those are the only people reading my blog! (I love you ALL! ❤️🦋🌀)

The list

I am like Trump because I feel an urge to speak my mind, publicly. This has been true of me since I was a teenager and started talking to anyone and everyone on my dad’s CB radio! 🔈🎤

I am like Trump because I love looking at the whole enchilada, or big picture of a situation (and of life). And it’s freakin’ HUGE! (By the way, I love using the word “huge” and don’t want to stop using it. I know at any given point, we are only seeing and experiencing a small segment of life (that which we ourselves are living), but beyond my own personal space, I see a huge world! A ginormous world full of abundance and unlimited possibilities for ALL. ❤️🌀

We are only ever seeing part of the picture.

I am like Trump because I think I could be a good leader. (Emphasis on “think.”) I would rather lead than follow. And true leaders, learn from their mistakes. 🧐💭

I am like Trump because while I dislike criticism (who doesn’t?), I can tolerate it, learn from it, and on my better days, use it to empower mySelf. A lot of my best ideas have been born from changing my perspective. One of my mantras is: Thank you for helping me make a better choice. And it was birthed after working for someone who irritated me—DAILY! ❤️🤪

I am like Trump because I often follow my feelings, especially about medical stuff (duh, my book, which offers advice to others), and how I take care of my own health. I don’t wait for double blind, placebo controlled studies—I Am The Placebo. Nod to Dr. Joe Dispenza. ❤️😉

Oneness. It’s not just loving what we like.

I am like Trump because I like to use Twitter. It is a cultural phenomenon! (Actually, that could be said about all social media.) I write like I speak also. Mostly, my brain isn’t fully engaged until my mouth starts moving! Hahahaha! Yes, that gets me into trouble at times. But, you hear my honest answer, even if you don’t like it. I am not a politician! 🤯🤣 I love how Twitter helps keep me from overthinking (as I am obviously doing now), while coaxing me to write concisely and in the moment—though I don’t tweet very often, I have a strong urge to tweet. 🐦😉

I am like Trump because I am not always right, but I am always considering my next move—often 3 steps ahead. (A good chess player, though I don’t play chess.) 😉🤯

I am like Trump because I am a strategic thinker, or critical thinker. And at this point you may be thinking critically of me! Hahahaha! Why does the Billy Joel song, “You May Be Right” ring in my ears as I write this?!? 🎼🙃

I am like Trump because I value a solid work ethic, and highly promote personal liberties, assuming proper guidance (learn and earn). ✍️💵

I am like Trump because I value education. I value street smarts as much as higher education (as I have learned from both). I taught my children (and those under my watch), not to touch the hot stove. (I recognize controls and rules are not necessarily a bad thing, and are good until a level of maturation, independence, and critical thinking is achieved. 🕰💡

So, you see, I can write a short blog article! Hahahaha! 🤣😂🤣

I may not have a lot in common with President Trump, but my dad thought a lot of him (as my dad was a wheeler dealer and thrived on the art of a deal), and so do millions of Americans. ❤️🇺🇸

Thus, I thought it might be wise of me to analyze (and note), where I align with our president—in particular, before criticizing him for his tweets or decisions. And as you know, I really dislike labels, name-calling, and such.

This was the inspiration for my process and write this article:

My dads RC “trainer” – check out the name: Apprentice

FYI:

Oh, and I almost forgot…

I am like Trump because I wrote a book! Take It Upon Yourself to Live a Wholly Vibrant Life!

As my husband often says, “He who tooteth not his own horn, the same shall not be tooted”!

As always, I hope I have inspired you to find a better feeling thought! Please comment and let me know. Much love and many blessings to you and yours.

Amen. Awomen. Namaste. OM ❤️🦋🌀

No Dogma Required

No dogma required.

I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again… you can Take It Upon Yourself to be, do, or have Anything. You can take care of yourself. Be your own boss, preacher, teacher, shaman, priest, doctor, and so on… Oh, yes, you can. Give yourself permission. Get your backbone up.

Dogma (original song & artwork) by Richard Murrey.

Do you know why I write the word awesome as aWEsOMe???

Because WE OM. (We meditate.)

The list

From our meditations we have the knowing that:

  • WE are never alone.
  • WE are critical thinkers.
  • WE are deep thinkers.
  • WE are not sheeple.
  • WE don’t drink the Kool-Aid.

I Mind My (Own) Energy–boy, how true is this turning out to be NOW (in reference to the Off Grid living)!

Feel your way

WE don’t need labels or judgments, but recognize it is human for us to do this. 

WE won’t judge our “beginning” (or becoming) from someone else’s “middle” and we know we’re all in the process of “becoming.”

Empowered

WE are empowered and are always (ALL ways) connected with our higher power, Source, God, the Universe, etc.

Choice

In All things, we always have a powerful CHOICE.

WE can choose (no matter the circumstances) to operate at our very best.

Never alone

Source Omniscience is IN, THROUGH, and ALL AROUND us – ALL dimensions — ALL the time! There is nowhere Source isn’t. 

We Are All Connected. 

Everything Resolves to GRATITUDE. God is limitless Omniscience – No Dogma required.
