About Omniscience

Limitless

Omniscience is Infinite Spirit, limitless, unbounded, and eternal.

The phenomena of ALL Nature, physical (seen and unseen), along with the spiritual, are the myriad expressions of Infinite Spirit.

Understanding of these expressions, and living in harmony therewith, bring about balance, joy, and vibrant living.

Omni-Everything

There is no particular “God” bigger or more true than another, as there is ONE SOURCE. All religions offer ways (practical and mystical) that are belief systems in an attempt to help humans rejoin Source, as streams and rivers rejoin the sea.

ALL existence (not merely the personal egoic identity) of the individual continue after the death transformation when the body releases the soul and resides again in fullness beyond the veil.

Living it

Live a moral life to feel better and help others feel better also.

The Golden Rule is a good standard to follow. It is found in the Bible and other sacred texts of various religions:

“Whatsoever ye would that others should do unto you, do ye also unto them.”

I feel that I’m walking my talk and living in alignment with my purpose when I feel a physical sensation in my body that I call, God Bumps.

Check out my comment below Doreen’s post:

Breathe

Natural laws exist as a container for the human experiment. Breathe.

And as you breathe, think of something to be grateful for. Yes, #GRATITUDE for ALL you have been, and have the opportunity to BE.

Experience

The putative (subtle) energy of Omniscience is known by different names within human traditions. In traditional Chinese medicine it is called Qi (pronounced CHEE), in the Judeo-Christian tradition it is called Spirit, and in Ayurveda it is called Prana and represented in the doshas. We Are All Connected. We are ALL One.

Limitless God

Limitless God

I have been invited to many churches. And I’ve attended many different churches. Yet, I do not consider myself “religious.” For the one God I believe in, is my Creator, Source Energy, and this omniscience cannot be boxed in one religion. Omnipresence is larger, more vast and unending that any religion can describe or fully appreciate!

Religions, or labels of any kind, slow us down. They’re limiting.

There is a verse in the book of John, chapter 10 that says, “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” I dwell often on that verse.

I believe in Jesus Christ and His teachings. Often, I find that I experience Jesus and His message, more profoundly than most people who label themselves as “Christians.” This is because His teachings “grow” me daily. The words attributed to Jesus “expand” me. Raise my vibration. Heighten my sense of “BE-ing” alive. His teachings reveal a loving God. Thus, I’ve been able to shed the skin of religion.

We are all children of God–not the old man with the long white beard God– but rather an Ever-living, Limitless, Divine Intelligence, pulsating ENERGY that breathes and creates all life. And as God’s children, I believe we are all worthy. We all have merit.

Limitless God, Creator, Divine, Omni-everything is the only Source of our breath. Abundance is ours.

Nature is structured

A leaf on a tree has the same nutrition flowing into it while it is growing on a tree, that the tree has. We are a but a branch of Source. Only when we attempt to cut ourselves off from Source do we wither.

The whole point of the Bible was to give us a way to live, a structure to follow, an essence of the Divine Holy Creator. Most of us need structure. Most of us are too scared to really live the fullness of the lives we came here to live. But too many people use the Bible (or they’re chosen Holy book) as a crutch, and never GROW up and through it. People want to judge others, but never cleanse themselves with the holy waters of the divine message.

Speaking of structure, in one of the oldest religions, we meet Ahura Mazda – Lord of Wisdom. The highest spirit name in Zoroastrianism. And in Zoroastrianism we find 101 names for God!

Isn’t it amazing how much we don’t know?

Holy words

People don’t want to read other Holy books or Sacred texts though. That would actually require their TIME.

Much less do people want to follow biblical dietary laws. The Bible has instructions about what foods would benefit our human bodies. In fact, Jesus encouraged us to die to the flesh daily, which I’ve always thought meant to put off my fleshly desires, in order to become more righteous, but now I see this as a test of will, to abstain from food or other things for a time, in order to reveal our true nature.

I know it feels like it can be difficult not to eat for a day. Yet, throughout history, many people have gone multiple days or weeks without food, and they lived through it. We’re just spoiled. We only live for comfort these days. We only want to satisfy our taste buds. If you can’t even skip a meal, skip your meat, or dairy, why would a LIMITLESS unbounded Omniscient God reveal ALL through you? Ye of little faith.

Meaty message

You’ve sat in churches and heard the milk of the message. Why? Because most preachers and pastors say that people just want the milk, and not the meat of it. Well, I don’t think many of us can even handle the milk! We’re biblically lactose intolerant!

So, yes, I’ve given up on organized religion. I’ve given up man-made sermons. Churches are run by limited people. And Creator Source (thank you infinitely!) has given me the key to knowing already–and it’s as close to me always as my breath.

Study to show thyself approved

Sure, I’ve studied the Bible, the Book of Mormon, Christ in You, and many other books about world religions and philosophies. Many profound. Many with aWEsOMe intelligence. But, I don’t think they are without error, since someone had to write each word. Inspired? Probably. And as a writer, I believe many of the things I’ve written were inspired too. Yet, I am not encouraging you to follow imperfect me.

I am encouraging you to study to show yourself approved and lean not to your own understanding. And open your mind a bit.

Take God out of the box

Breathe. Take a moment. Sit in quiet contemplation (meditation) without asking for ANYTHING. Detach from your surroundings. From your stuff. Both physically and emotionally. Just sit for awhile. Say “thank you.” Thank yourself. Thank Divine Presence. Be thankful you have a brain, a body, a working knowledge of the world. Be thankful for the cells of your body and that your Source Creator can and does fill all the space in and through each cell. God is there holding each cell in place, just as Omniscience holds all of the Universe in place. There is no place where God isn’t. There is NO such thing as empty space. You are never alone.

Often, when I come out of meditation, I am gifted with a phrase to think about. Sometimes, I tweet that phrase or message. Here are some:

  • Are you smarter than God? Do you presume to know which path is right to worship LIMITLESS Source Energy Creator?
  • What if God doesn’t need you? Would it upset your ego or your mind? Just let Omniscience BE.
  • Even the words that we use, are only symbols, often misconstrued. It’s nearly impossible to describe the vastness and ALIVENESS of God!
  • Deep, cavernous, and shallow in places – I  live at the foot of God’s throne. Omni-everything. Filling-All-Space Creator.
  • Limitless Ever-Living Filling-All-Space Creator God / Divine Source set you FREE! Live from that FREEDOM now!
  • Why is too big of a question to ask. We could never contain the answer. Ask yes or no questions, or to be “shown” how.
  • Some people are just harder to love than others because of the filters, our own unique ways of perceiving them.
  • You want freedom, God gave Free Will. Can you be responsible enough not to inflict pain on others?
  • Meditate on this: God fills ALL Space. OM
  • Imagine how ginormous God is. How could God be constrained by a name, much less one ideology?
  • Once you give someone a gift, don’t even think about it again because if you do, if you judge what they did with it, then it wasn’t a gift.
  • Two reasons “church” isn’t needed: 1) We are to study to show ourselves approved before God, and 2) Our body is our temple.
  • I don’t go to church. Why? Simply, I haven’t yet found a faith, much less a church, that could contain our LIMITLESS Creator Source — God.
  • Thank you for every “bump” in the road.
  • If you really knew that Limitless Divine Source Energy God Omniscient lived inside of YOU, filling all space, you would never hate yourself. You would KNOW that you are never alone.
  • Don’t you find it humorous that as soon as you break free of one paradigm, you find yourself in another?
  • YOU have the POWER in every moment to change your Mind. Focus on this. Human beings created All-Ah!
  • Oh yeah, it’s okay. It really is. Because all that Free Will still fits inside a Limitless Divine order. Always. ALL-ways.
  • Let’s keep our religious discourse so simple that a small child can understand. Creator Source God lives.
  • God still creates. God still communicates. God still inspires. So, it stands to reason there will continue to be art created, words spoken, and books written, which are divinely inspired.
  • Very simply, why do we limit God?
  • Think about this: No hope is false. Hope is hope!
  • Only go to a church, society, or group meeting that FEEDS and nurtures YOU. If it makes you feel bad because of gossip or hypocrisy–leave. Immediately!
  • The way in which you vibrate, whether you’re feeling good or bad, has an immediate impact on every cell of your body. Your being is always vibrating, resonating to the environment / conditions that surround you. You have the choice to put yourself in the best conditions for yourself now.
  • You and I are one imperfect being, who God Loves unconditionally! Conditions separate. Rules separate. Perfect love embraces, cherishes! Love unifies.
  • At some point outside today, FEEL and acknowledge Omnipresence when the breeze blows over you. That’s a warm hug from our Creator.
  • Deep, cavernous, and shallow in places – I live at the foot of God’s throne. Yes, even rocks, yeah, the very mountains… are ALIVE!
  • Do you know why I say our Creator “Fills-All-Space”? Because God is Omnipresent, Omnipotent, and Omniscient!
  • Why were we made in God’s image? To reflect God in all we be, do, and have!
  • Anytime I think, “me” I am in Ego. Anytime I allow God to flow through me, I am in Grace. Gratitude. Namaste.
  • WE are to reflect God upon each other, as water reflects the sky.
  • Unconditional love. Love without any conditions. We may not see ourselves or others the way God does, but we can try!
  • You ARE only seeing PART of the picture – ever. God.
  • Its simple really. Instead of “God made us in God’s image”, we see and make God to be like us, in our image. God is Energy, in All.
  • When what you believe in hurts other people rather than helps, it’s not about God, it’s about you.
  • Why were we made in God’s image? To reflect God in all we be, do, and have!
  • We are each a leaf on God’s tree (Gaia), each with our own unique perspective.
  • Most people have had God’s unconditional love, conditioned right out of them.
  • Whenever I FEEL bad, sad, mad, etc. it is always because my perspective differs from God’s POV which, is ALL WAYS unconditional.
  • Lonely, scared, or anxious? Be not afraid. You are never alone.
  • Uh, that thing called unconditional love you want to think you believe in, means loving through any & all conditions!
  • When you practice unconditional love, you’re not complaining. How peaceful would the world be if we all communicated when we’re happy?
  • Even children know this truth, play only with those you feel good around. Walk away from those who break your toys.
  • My gift to you, to all who are truth seekers. We Are All Connected.
  • There is only one absolute in the Universe: everything vibrates.
  • The paradox is: I change not, but I change everything. – God.

Have no Ego

As I have previously written, God created us to show himself without ego. This came up again for me yesterday, as a new friend told me that EGO means “Edging God Out.” I love that! I love learning more ways to let go and relax my ego, and walk in and with God’s presence daily.

Ultimately, because people always want to limit, judge, label, quantify, and put everything within a structure–this is the reason for all faiths, religion, and dogmas, to provide us the structure and permission to walk in and with Divinity at all times. However, as we all know too well, some people take this to the extreme of thinking they ARE God, and use that to “lord it over” people or whole other cultures. That’s fanaticism.

It never fails to amaze me how some people (like that one particular facebooker) think they have God all figured out, in a box, with such lofty knowing (Ego) to think they can judge / put ANY other human down that simply tries to share another aspect of our LIMITLESS Creator!! What audacity! Yet, even with that, yes, We Are All One, We Are All Connected, and I can send our “brother” love and a hope for his one day expansive opening of eyes and heart for his ultimate highest and best. Ahhh, blessed light! Glory to ever expanding knowledge and grace…

So, you are invited to take God out of the box.

We Are All Connected

We Are All One. In that, there is not one of us who is better than another.

We Are All Connected by the very breath and energy of our omnipotent Limitless God. And in this way, we make a beautiful energetic tapestry that God can see, feel, and know. Ahh, such sacred beauty. Such balance. Such peace. Such astounding and unfathomable LOVE.

Daily practice

For further practice (to study to show thyself approved to God):

  1. Meditate
  2. Breathe
  3. Walk in gratitude daily
  4. Really LOOK at nature, sit with a flower or leaf for a while
  5. Read good books that nurture your soul and spirit
  6. Listen with mindful awareness
  7. Let go of attachments, let go of anything that doesn’t serve you, including the past
  8. Activate your Faith! No worries–ever!
  9. Forgive, or better yet, don’t judge – Everything happens for a reason
  10. Watch for subtle clues and meaning–synchronicities
  11. There IS value in Everything (whether you can wrap your mind around that or not)

A limitless God, Creator, Source Energy can never be fully understood as that would be like trying to see every glint of sun on every wave in the ocean, and more—all at the same time.

I believe for every question there is an answer, but that those answers will not cover every question because there are limitless scenarios in which one could ask the same question, thus putting a different spin on the answer.

Be the person your Soul knows you are!

Namaste. OM

We Are All Connected.

Many blessings to you in ALL ways.

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

Continuing thoughts on our Limitless Creator Source God Divine Infinite Intelligence etc

Thoughts on Limitless Creator Source God Divine Infinite Intelligence

I attended a Mind Body Spirit expo in Sarasota and met a Tibetan Monk who studied under Geshe Kelsang Gyatso (you may have heard of him, as he’s written many books). I was drawn to the monks’ energy, presence, and humility. I attended his talk, which was well received. And I bought two of Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s CDs, so I could listen and discover new and deeper spiritual understandings.

I bought, “Eight Steps to Happiness” and “How to Solve Our Human Problems” and I have finally, completed my study of each set. Then, for Christmas, I gave my son and daughter-in-law the “Eight Steps…” and my dad the “…Human Problems” CDs. For more information about the monk I met, and where he practices, visit the Kadampa Meditation Center here.

Limitless Creator Source God Divine Infinite Intelligence
Limitless Creator Source God Divine Infinite Intelligence

I watched the movie Grounded, and gave several copies of it away too! (Click on the word Grounded to watch it on YouTube). The importance of earthing and grounding really resonate with me, not just for health and vitality, but to honestly connect with our Earth too! Nature can explain our Limitless Creator Source so beautifully, even so a child can understand.

I went to a special ceremony at the Dao temple. At the time, I felt disconcerted about the stealthy way I had been invited. I had not been given much information with which to make an educated decision about going. If I had not been questioning so much, I may have enjoyed the service more.

I prefer to know a little bit about a religion / faith before attending, bowing, or worshiping. I was told the Daoist ceremony was only a ceremonial blessing, however I came away with a birth certificate! And as I feel our Limitless Creator Source is in all and through all–thus, can pervade any tradition or affiliation, I can always enjoy and stay open to receive all the good things of God and not judge them, versus people who find it difficult to attend other faiths because they are locked into one way.

What is really going on?

All any of us are really doing is ascribing human attributes onto a Creator we cannot (yet, if ever) fully understand.

How does a Buddhist monk, the natural practice of Grounding, and a Daoist ceremony tie together?

These are just a few of the new experiences I’ve had, which bolster my belief that God is vast and expansive. Much to vast for humans with limited intellect to comprehend.

I am about following / connecting to an Ever-Living Limitless God, who will use Buddha, Jesus Christ, or my dog (yes well sort of, whatever it takes) to reach us, to meet people “where they are” and bring them back to knowing their true essence, “who they really are.” I do not believe there is only ONE way. I have never believed that. I have never condemned another based on a religious belief.

Hedging my bets?

Some might say that I hedged my spiritual bets years ago by being “saved” or “born again”, being baptized twice (one of those times was in the ocean–and it was beautiful), and now to have been blessed with a birth certificate from the Dao temple.

Connecting

I believe we all have the ability to know, and connect with our Source, and in our quiet moments, Creator can speak to us–and we can FEEL it. This is the reason I love meditation.

I don’t feel that any one person’s connection to the Divine, or Infinite Intelligence is stronger than anyone else’s CAN be (with much mindfulness and meditation / prayer / acknowledging Spirit). We are all children of the Limitless Omni-Everything Creator.

Everything is Energy

Each of us pulsate Source Energy at different frequencies. And Everything in the universe vibrates–yes, all physical atoms are vortices of energy, constantly spinning/vibrating, each emanating a unique energy signature. (Read any physics books by Niels Bohr.)

Limiting religions

I have intimately struggled with so-called “religious beliefs” because of my RLDS upbringing, Native American ancestry (my mother and my maternal grandmother had healing gifts), and close Baptist friend who I sang with in a variety of churches when we were young.

  • I believe our bodies are our temple and we do not need a church or temple building
  • I do not believe in dogma
  • I do not believe in statues or icons
  • I think killing people (especially in the name of any religion) is ludicrous

I have written about my beliefs along the way, but I don’t think I’ve ever written it this cut and dry before.

I do believe God has a GREAT sense of humor and most of us (definitely me) take ourselves way too seriously!

I think Omni-potent God created us to show himself without ego. If God showed us himself He would be in EGO.

Think of it this way, I wrote a book and it has a picture of me on the back cover. In that photo, I am showing you my ego self, as the author. If instead, I show you only the front cover of the book (of what I created), I am not in ego, I am just celebrating my creation!

God celebrates His creation of each of us – everyday!

Standards

So, I tend to hold teachers, preachers, evangelists, and the like to a higher standard, because I hold myself in such a place of integrity (because of my beliefs of our Limitless Omniscient Source). However, this year, I’ve learned that because I hold myself to such a high standard/integrity, it very well might be a limiting belief, and causes me to feel bad when others let me down. Why do I feel people should be perfect?

I’ve said many times, “Christians should be held to a higher standard.” And every time I’ve felt that way, it’s caused me to feel bad, anxious, irritated, frustrated, angry, etc.

I choose to let go of that limiting belief.

Letting go to feel better

Now, I replace thoughts about someone’s lack of “integrity”, with thoughts like, “everyone is doing the best they can” and “nobody’s perfect”, so I can radiate compassion, unconditional love, and bloom in the knowing that we are all “God’s children”.

Ah, that feels so much better! And my only job is to reach for these better feeling thoughts, in any moment of the day, when I begin to judge someone’s vibes, facial features, body language, words, tone, or actions.

Beautiful.

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.

Honoring our Connections

To honor our Connections

This is an analysis of CONNECTIONS…

The Big connections.

The seemingly little connections.

Yet, ALL REAL connections.

Unlocking potentials

I’ve been saying YES to many things for many years which, has brought me to this place, to write about connections. The connections we all make everyday. When you step outside your door each day, a HUGE potential exists for you to connect with someone new that offers the possibility to alter the direction of your life!

Are you OPEN to the possibilities?

Are you open to making new connections?

The Merriam-Webster definition of connection is: “join two or more things“, “the state of being connected” and “a situation in which two or more things have the same cause, origins, goal, etc.” What does this remind you of? It reminds me of Jesus’ sayings:

“…if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven.”

“…where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst.”

Be open

So, you need to be open, don’t you? You need to be willing to be one of the two parties involved.

When you step outside each day, you connect with the ground (unless you live on a boat)! And in that case, as you place a toe in water, you cause a ripple. But I digress–though,  I wonder what the fish and other water creatures perceive of your toe in the water?

Anyway, when you put your foot on the floor upon awakening from sleep, say to yourself, Thank You. Try this for a week or two. What new awareness opens to you?

Once you’ve gone out of your home, chances are, you will connect with another person. Are you grumpy? Not feeling well? Anxious because you’re running late?

spiral-energy

Mental Constructs

Time is a man-made concept. Not everyone lives by the same “rules” about time, and what about all those times zones?

So, take a breath. Smile at the person in front of you. Be grateful you have the opportunity for this interaction, even if it’s a short interaction.

Just be grateful. #GRATITUDE

Anything can happen today!

If there’s ever a time when you start to feel sorry for yourself, read the account of Job in the Bible.

You can live with less ego in your life when you understand that we’re all connected.

Be in Gratitude daily, yes, really FEEL it– whether something you label as GOOD or something you label as BAD happens. One will feel good, the other will teach you something– IF you’re open and willing to learn. See with new eyes and hear with new ears!

Isn’t this an exciting time to be alive on planet Earth???

Intersecting aligning points

We are connected to the Earth, to the cosmos, to the air, water, plant life, and every living being and creature on the planet in one way or another. We can turn away, or we can embrace these Connections. I feel we become richer, more “whole” as a people when we embrace these Connections.

American astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson has said, “We are all connected; To each other biologically. To the earth chemically. To the rest of the universe atomically.”

The point is: you really can’t even walk outside without being faced with opportunities to connect with others. You can choose to make those connections good or not. Your attitude and how you respond to others really does make a difference. Not just to them, but to YOU.

You can learn to become more in tune with the Connections all around you.

One of my healers, Nora Ross gave me another tactic as a way to promote peace. When someone approaches me, Nora taught me to say the following mentally to myself (inner dialog) “I love you” toward them.

What I have found is that when I practice this, the way I respond to people changes. If someone approaches me for assistance and I respond, “How may I bless you today?” or “How may I help (serve) you today?” instead of “Yes?” or “What?” this enhances my vibration. And the meeting becomes quite a profound experience and allows a magnificent exchange to occur.

For more, about how we’re all connected read the book Transform Your Life Book 2 – Inspirational Stories and Expert Insights that includes my chapter called, “We Are All Connected.” This was my first co-author book project and it’s filled with timeless insight from many gifted authors.

For more about being open, find my second co-authored book called, The Energy of Receiving” by Happiness Publishing. The chapter I wrote is called, “Open to Receive.”

I’ve been living by, and thinking in agreement with these two mantras for many years: “We Are All Connected” and “God’s timing is always perfect.” However, this is a PROCESS, there is NO COMPLETION or finish line.

Philosophy would also aim for us to “know thyself.”

One of the most profound Connections we can uncover is how our inner being is connected to God.

As well, when I discover a Connection like that with another, I call it a “soul connection” or say we’re in “soul-alignment.

Some of the major soul-alignments in my life have been / are:

  • Without my mom sharing a bite of her sandwich with my dad, I would not be here, so I thank each of them (in my inner dialogue everyday for creating me–since they have both passed away, crossed over to the Grand Beyond.)
  • Without my body having experienced asthma my mom may have not taken me to a chiropractor as a child whom first taught me about natural (even holistic) health care
  • Without my maternal grandparents going to the church they did, my mother following their lead, and raising me within a “Living God believing Christian-faith“, I would not have experienced the healing power of God via “laying on of hands” – the first and most powerful Source of Energy Medicine
  • Without my dad being in the Citizen Band (CB) business (isn’t that interesting and perfect for me since it’s all about Frequency) I would not have met my first husband, and father to both of my children

Convergence

Are you getting a sense of ALL the many points of convergence that had to occur in my life to bring me to the awareness and consciousness that you’re reading in my posts?

  • Without my friend, Margie, (also of the same “Ever-Living God still speaks today” Christian faith) I would not have taken my first college class, which led to me working for a University for 10 years and obtaining my first degree in Aviation Business Administration (lots of emphasis on writing, both during my work there and their rigorous science degree program).
  • Without my first supervisor at that university, Lois McDonough, sticking by her decision to hire me (when certain forces were against that happening), I never would have worked there for ten years, earning an associates in science degree, and being able to provide for my two children and myself. I will always honor, Lois for her backbone and tenacity!
  • Without one mentor turned friend (whom I met while working on a complex database project that nobody else wanted to undertake at the university), Digi, I wouldn’t have moved out of the higher ed arena to the corporate world in 1997.
  • Without friends and coworkers, Nancy and Holly, I would not have met my wonderful “love of my life” husband, Richard! (And thank you Suzi for marrying us!) And without my friend Pattie I wouldn’t have met her sister Nancy!
  • Without continuing my education, I wouldn’t have the financially strong and relevant career I have today (as well as, meeting the beautiful coworkers and mentors I’ve met along the way–many of whom have played pivotal roles in my personal development).
  • Without Richard introducing me to juicing, distilled water, and a healthier way to eat (no soda or fast food since 2003), I am quite sure I would not be as healthy as I am today, and later… all those baby steps enabled me to go raw vegan, do a 40 day juice fast, etc.
  • Without Richard’s auntie Millie, (her wisdom and encouragement was so enlightening to me) I would not have tried acupuncture
  • Without listening to my own inner guidance (the intuition of gut feelings) when I didn’t feel the first acupuncture doctor was right, going back and seeing Joan Massey, Doctor of Oriental Medicine for several months and asking her questions, learning, and following her advice, I would still have asthma
  • Without beginning my quest for health at HealthQuest (when Dr. Joan was there) I wouldn’t have met Dory Valentine my massage therapist and yoga teacher. I also began having colon hydrotherapy and found a great deal of healing from that practice.
  • Without Joan I wouldn’t have met Nora Ross (who treated me using multiple modalities including Raindrop Therapy using therapeutic essential oils)
  • Without God leading me to put my hands together when I pray and my own inner being allowing the asthma in my body to reverse and heal I would not be writing and speaking about natural and holistic health, nor would I be as healthy as I am today – able to do so much! No diseases, no aches or pains, no surgeries (as in “replacements”), and NO medications!!! Yes, I survived pharmaceuticals!
  • Without my kids, who are now grown up, I would not have three beautiful and smart granddaughters who teach me much about the simplicity of being excited and thrilled all over again with all the little things of life.

I honor all of the people who have blessed me in my journey. The connections I have experienced in my life, most all have enabled me to learn and grow in many different aspects.

And the beat goes on

I continue honoring all of my connections.

Thank you to my recruiter and friend, Doreen Austin, and a referral from a previous coworker that culminated in bringing me to work in St. Petersburg, Florida–moving from Orlando, July 2013. Oh, how delicious life has become!

I would not yet be a published author without the connections afforded me by my holistic life coach, Dr. Alison J. Kay, (who also has a practice that assists in the clearing of our subconscious blocks). I found Dr. Kay on LinkedIn and reached out to her several times, even before moving to the west coast of Florida as a sort of pre-paving a way for me to work (in some capacity) within the holistic health and wellness arena, and continue writing on a subject that thrills me immensely on a soul level.

In Dr. Kay’s book, “What If There’s Nothing Wrong” she discusses the scientific evidences along with ancient understandings of various aspects of connection – connection of the mind to the body, “an interconnection between all animate life”, and how science is proving these connections. Dr. Kay’s book connects with what I have been studying and writing about as she states, “the mind-body connection puts the power back in the hands of the individual…” and this is the basis of my upcoming third book, “Take It Upon Yourself.”

In this particular video, you’ll learn:

“…the genetic characteristics of our ancestors live in our blood today.” Dr D’Adamo in the Blood Type Diet book. And this points to the fact that a portion of our ancestors still–within us.

Dr. Oz says on Oprah’s website, “…the next big frontier in medicine is energy medicine“. I believe we are at an exquisite time in history when western medicine will open to the connections to the subtle energies that guide us, working in and through us all.

Dr. Alison introduced me to Joeel and Natalie Rivera of Transformation Magazine and Transformation Publishing when I assisted her at the Atman Center during an event. That fortuitous meeting led to my participation in my first co-authored book. As well, while at the Atman Center, I met Mary Ann of Awakened Fibers. I think  of Mary Ann daily when I hug my Beau pillow (read about that here).

At this same Atman Center event, I was incredibly blessed to meet Alania Starhawk of We Believe In Light and Patricia McGivern, the magnificent author of the beautifully profound book, Angel Babies.

Assisting Dr. Kay at the second annual Awakening Into The Sun festival (initially at First Unity of St. Petersburg), led me to participate at the annual Awakening Into The Sun festival (which I have continued to do since), volunteer and teach EFT classes at the Awakening Wellness center (a dream of mine). How does it get any better than this? Woo-hoo!

Proof

“Sure, most physicists will tell you it’s impossible to feel this entanglement, this “spooky” connection to another living being. But when you reflect on a past love or a mother’s inexplicable knowledge of their child in danger; then you really have to stop and look at the evidence. There is proof that we are all connected, and it has more to do with the creation of the universe than the simple fact that we are all humans.”
Read more about how we are all connected here.

In my experience, if your heart is pointed in the direction of LOVE you emanate a vibration, sending ripples of unconditionallove and compassion outward, which allow you to be a blessing to others. You will help yourself and lift others.

If you don’t know what to do next, follow what feels lighter (vs. heavier) and really feel for these guiding feelings IN your body before making a particular choice. Many call that listening to their “gut feeling”. I call these my “God bumps” and they are my validation that I’m heading the right way. My way, may not be your way. But, there are many paths that lead to the same destination.

Don’t ignore your inner guidance – it exists for a reason. You were fearfully and wonderfully made.

If you want to experience greater prosperity, health, and vitality, choose thoughts that move you in the direction that FEELS good to YOU.

If you would like to experience emotional freedom from anxiety, pain, or other negative emotion–reach out to me. I am here to help.

Please check out my books, other blog titles here and share with others.

Be a blessing. Much love to you in ALL ways.

Amen and Namaste.

Why censor or limit oneself? God is. Just Be.

Why limit oneself?

My previous post was about living a joyous life in balance. Ah, bliss. And it should be so easy, right? Eh, well not exactly.

People limit themselves everyday. We fuss, nag, find fault, argue, criticize, and blah, blah, blah… So, why do I censor or limit myself in conversations? Isn’t it obvious?

God IS. Just BE.
God IS. Just BE.

I limit my words, uh many times even my thoughts, because someone was critical of me in the past. Maybe a parent, teacher, coach, boss, or authority figure – that is unimportant. It doesn’t matter whom. The point is – we humans like to limit things. We like to label things. People will tell you, “don’t worry or care what people think”… but then mysteriously those same folks – usually within the same conversation – will say something that carries the essence of, “be careful, don’t say too much, don’t tell him or her this or that.”

Good intentions

I give you this fact. Many people have good intentions. They want to protect you somehow. Protect you from saying too much so you won’t get into trouble. Hmm. But isn’t that their problem?

Mixed frequencies

Censoring myself, limits me and puts me in a flux state, vibrationally speaking.

I get nervous. I get flustered. My face may even get red. I end up with a mindful of clutter!

Yet, all I can ever truly be – is myself. Like me or not. Care or not.

I make mistakes, I learn, I fall, I get up, I cry, I love, I give, I receive. I am vulnerable. I am not superwoman – and I don’t really think anyone else is superman or superwoman either.

Empower yourself

UPDATE: Want to feel empowered? Get your cape on!

If I, being of noble purpose, believe I have something to share, begin to open my mouth but then my mind jumps to thoughts like, “Oh, they don’t want to know, they don’t care” that’s enough to stop me dead in my tracks. Why? Because no one wants to be judged or condemned. We all want to be liked! If we didn’t want people to like us, we’d never go out, we’d never join with others in any social situation. We’d sit alone day! Ha! But then a strange thing would happen. The ones we thought would judge us would be the very ones who would say, “come on, get out and be a joiner”! Do you get the irony in this?

You can’t get it wrong

So really, you can’t get it wrong. Just be. Be yourself. Without limitations.

Labels and beliefs

Even my feeble attempt to list all the names (why must humans LABEL everything?) that humans ascribe to the LIMITLESS Filling-All-Space Creator I honor causes me to scratch my head, analyze, and scrutinize. How do I order this list? Ugh! My mind goes to a place of judgement… I know someone won’t like that I’m including names of: Mother Father, Allah, Buddha, or Zen. All this judgment and it feels so heavy. But God is love, and I almost can’t think of any other all consuming love (at least not in my human form) better than a mother or father (or grandparent) can give to a child – so for me, calling God as Mother Father feels so good, so comforting, so forgiving, and so full of grace. Ohh I am so saved. So loved. I am not perfect but I am so very, wholly, LOVED!

All the various beliefs we hold, many are so personal, so deeply entrenched within us, that putting the names into the same article, or list, will be judged, labeled, and so on! Go on, that’s fine. You’re not perfect either! But you are worthy. You are loved. 😉 Obviously human beings cannot agree, most cannot even discuss these Holy names for God – there is no consensus and certainly there are multitudes of faiths, religions, and many, many wars have been fought, with untold millions of lives lost due to the very notion / belief that one of these names, carry more importance, than the others. But names are only words. Words must be defined to carry any meaning to anyone. Period. If I AM (right now in the present moment) aware of, consciously tuned to:

The names of God

God

Creator

Source

Universal Energy

Great Spirit

Great Architect

Why do we limit the Limitless, Ever-Living, Filling-ALL-Space, Creator God?

And then, why, would I EVER limit myself???

There are NO limitations!!!

There is good all around

Let us not lie to ourselves! There’s so much GOOD going on and I’m tuned in!

People are friendly. People smile. People are kind and do good things for each other.

I see beauty EVERYWHERE and everything is working together for our good! Everything occurs in perfect timing in accordance with the order of life, of God. We are all connectedin so many direct and subtle ways. How can anyone deny it? We live in a field of INFINITE possibilities. Get over your lack mentality.

Resonate, vibrate, tune yourself to the POWER and knowledge YOU are who you are meant to be. Quit resisting! Resisting your true beautiful, whole, powerful nature is the same as putting a clamp on a water hose. Just let God’s love and power flow through you always. 😉

I am a spiritual being having an earthly experience and so are YOU! Be real with yourself. I love to help others awaken. I’ve got so much to share!

Bloom where you’re planted. I am! Since I love teaching, sharing, and writing – here’s my expression. Each post is a bloom on the flower of my life.

God personified

Jesus Christ of Nazareth came to enlighten us. He came to show us that we’re energy. He showed us how to live in the full awareness of how to live in our wellness and wholeness. Be it now.

To be something means, you are “being.” You are a human being. Being means vibration, pulsing, activating, acting as if, and exercising your faith! Jesus did not look upon illness or dis-ease, He saw us in our whole (Holy) state of being. Go to the scriptures and read the miracles again. Jesus healed a man who had been born blind. It is written Jesus put mud on the man’s eyes. Then you know what? Jesus instructed the man to go to the river and wash! The blind man was healed by putting his faith into action. Yes, “your faith has made you whole.”

Be hopeful

If you need encouragement and upliftment today quietly say to yourself or out loud with boldness…

  • With every breath, God
  • With every heartbeat, God
  • I am who and where God is
  • God is with me
  • I am never ever alone
  • Alone is a lie
  • Alone has been misrepresented
  • Alone has been ill-defined
  • I know God is with me
  • I align myself with Source
  • I Am Creative Energy

Then say with your most open heart: “Thank You” as a child says, thank you. God knows. For some beautiful worship check out:Rev. Michael Beckwith

My daily mission: to consistently and joyfully manage the contrast between things that frustrate me (like a pebble in my shoe), which cause me to ask for improvements in my spiritual yet earthbound experience, and reach for better feeling thoughts, keeping my body at ease, allowing myself to receive the divine blessings God has in store for me.

In other words: To be joyfully aware of LIMITLESS, Ever-Living, Filling-All-Space Creator in every present moment. To me, this is the sum total of living a blessed, blissful, joyous, and happy life – everyday no matter what the circumstances.

Always remember we walk by faith. Be conscious every present moment. We walk in the light and are never alone.

To those who question if God is Energy, I would ask them, “What is Spirit”?

What is the essence of God? Isn’t it enough to be thankful that we have mind enough to ponder that? To simply BE. Be in God’s Energy.

Blessed BE.

Ease, peace, calm, love, light, joy, bliss, namaste, and, and…

We Are All Connected. OM

Many blessings to you in ALL ways.

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 I call, Omniscience.

My work

My “work” (day job) is not just what I do Monday through Friday each week to earn a paycheck. But it aids in my learning how things work. It often causes me to consciously acknowledge  how energy works because I find many contrasts there! LOL

My main and utmost job though is to myself, my inner being, my true nature which is, to work on a spiritual and energetic level.

Live blessed and blissful in balance

God Bumps

To always focus as Spirit leads me, where I feel the bodily sensation of “God Bumps” (thrill bumps, chills, tingles, ripple feelings). The more I feel these God Bumps the more it seems to occur whenever I meet, have a conversation with, or sit in the presence of other beings who are also on a path of enlightenment. These God Bumps are energy resonating within my body. Typically it brings me to the present moment, to be conscious of the fact that I am a spiritual being 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 really 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, 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 when I read of 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 who got caught up in scandalous activities. Not that everyone who is a spiritual leader or teacher is perfect, save one I know of, 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? The Holy savior, Jesus Christ of Nazareth. 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 he walked! Jesus already knew he could because 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 say Jesus said, “your faith has made you whole”.

Jesus came to show us, teach us, of our inner holy 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. This is why 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 – and wealth means different things to different people.

I know some will not receive this so well, because they believe some have more advantages, are stronger, more driven, or smarter than others. I believe all have the ability, even those who are told they have some sort of disability. We are only limited by our thoughts, our 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 because it is a storage place for anger, resentment, bitterness, hatred, jealousy, envy, addictions, and a host of destructive feelings.

I learned to Put 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 that is my true nature, my calling. Energy is fully functioning omnipresent and omniscient in our being and 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. 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. Ever on the look out for how I can better assist.

The most wonderful masterful healers I have discovered include (but are 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 things that frustrate me, which cause me to ask for improvements in my spiritual yet earthbound experience, and reach for better feeling thoughts, keeping my body at ease, allowing myself to receive the divine blessings God has in store for me (which, Jesus came to show are our birthright).

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

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

Always remember we walk by faith. Be conscious every present moment. We walk in the light and are never alone. We are all connected.

Namaste and love,

Sheila

Things I’ve Never Understood

Even at my ripe age of fifty, there’s still things in life (or at least in our culture and society) I don’t understand. I’ve started a list of those things. Because the mind likes to observe and catalog things. And because people like to explain things. It makes us comfortable when we can explain stuff.

  1. Insurance – Why do states (like Florida) have laws requiring people to buy auto insurance and insurance agencies encourage you also to pay for coverage that covers “uninsured motorists”? If it’s the law, then why doesn’t the state (Florida in my example) cover the uninsured? Or at least force the uninsured to pay for all accidents that are their fault? Which brings me to #2…
  2. No Fault Accidents – There’s no such thing. Someone is always at fault. I understand that it takes two to tango so to speak, or multiple people at fault but no one at fault? I’m not buying that logic unless you’re driving down the road and a tree falls over on your car.
  3. Late Fees – It seems this archaic situation penalizes the very people who CAN’T afford to pay. If the person had the money, they’d have paid the bill when it was due, duh!
  4. Credit Bureau’s – Okay, anyone who knows me, knows I’ve yammered about this subject for years. Credit bureau’s should be illegal and outlawed. Period. They are a private entity amassing too great of control over private individuals lives. They affect how much interest you to pay to a financial institution, whether you can rent certain apartments or homes, whether you can buy a home, and often as well (which really annoys me) influence a company’s decision whether to hire you or not. I say, if they want to remain in business fine, but each citizen should have control over what is released in the file. Oh I know you can “fight” errors on your reports but why is the burden of that fight on the individual? If you become a victim of identity theft you’ll find out real fast just how much power these behemoths wield over you.
  5. Science – People have said to me various times, “I’ll believe this or that when science proves it”. Well my friend you’ll be waiting a l-o-n-g time! Science is by definition, the observation and cataloging of particular things. And science evolves. It’s always changing. Scientists haven’t figured out all of the chemical make up of an apple, can’t tell you exactly how your brain works (granted daily they make great strides), nor can they define or better yet, agree, on how the universe works. Theories, all they have are observations, quantifications, and THEORIES.
  6. Schools of Thought – Adding to why I don’t understand #5, I learned a long time ago there are various “schools of thought” on every subject. So, why would you want to limit your thought to what science (someone else) has to say about your world, your body, or your mind? I say, find your true self, align with it, and be happy. There’s a different school of thought about what you should eat, “science” can prove or disprove it seems, just about every theory. I say check out who funds their studies.
  7. Free Speech – It seems we’ve lost our entitlement and right in this country to FREE SPEECH. Please stand up for free speech (whether you agree with what is being said or not). Seems like that should be a no-brainer but for lots of reasons people seem to want to control what people say. This came to a head for me when folks with a baby in a bar complained about us (two middle-aged educated folks sitting at the bar – the family was behind us at a table) saying a certain word a couple times that they disagreed with. First, we were in a bar, and second, who gives them the right? My husband and I were having a casual enlightened but FUN discourse going on between us, not being loud or brassy, and just happened to use this “word”. If those folks didn’t want their baby, and I do mean this was an infant, not to hear that word, they’d best move along. The bartender told us if we used that “word” any more we’d have to leave because we were in a “family bar”. What?!?! Kids are going to hear that word in a bar, a grocery store, Wal-mart, movie theater, walking in the mall, or coming from a car next to them in traffic. Get over it. Really?
  8. Source – In programming it all depends on who owns, controls, or has access to the source code. You can’t do anything very complex to the program without access to the source code. So, why let someone else, me or a doctor, tell you what’s wrong with your body (your source code). I don’t care how many degrees the person has, or how many years they went to school. They had to practice on someone (lets hope not on you)! No one knows you and your body, like YOU do. I’ve heard people say, “listen to your body” – and I’d believe that to be a good rule of thumb, except – there are exceptions. Sometimes our bodies are controlled by other forces. For example, if you have an addiction to something – that substance has set off certain cell receptors in the body to make you “think” you want whatever it is you’re addicted to, nicotine, sugar, chocolate, caffeine, alcohol, all come to mind as examples. I once had a doctor tell someone in my presence that he couldn’t be physically addicted to marijuana – only mentally. Later it was determined (evolving science) that one CAN be physically addicted to the THC component in marijuana.

So I guess, it really doesn’t matter what you know, what you study, or what you do – who believes you anyway? There’s a phrase I’ve heard recently that seems to fit here. Familiarity breeds contempt. It’s why Jesus Christ had a problem getting those whom he had grown up with to follow him and why he had to travel to recruit the twelve disciples. Another thought comes to mind… isn’t it absolutely amazing what twelve people can accomplish – like start Christianity – when they all are of like-mind?

In this day and age of viral marketing, I’d like to see more great ideas “take off.” I’d like it if we could shed some of the things that hinder us. Wouldn’t it be nice?

For me, I’m trying not to take myself so seriously – no one else does.
