From Secrets to Pyramids

As long as there are secret societies (or events) like the Bohemian Grove, Jekyll Island, and Epstein Island (if you haven’t heard about this, you can go to YouTube or favorite search engine to learn about it), there will be elitist rulers over slaves. And if we are not allowed to be privy to this information, don’t kid yourself, we are slaves. We are Controlled. ❤️🦋🌀〰️🔥🙏☯️

I woke up today to read of the 17 day Bohemian Grove event, and my mind immediately drifted to the slaves who built the pyramids. (Pyramids in Egypt and in South America).

From Secrets to Pyramids ❤️🦋🌀☯️

Many of us (born after World War II), were raised with the saying, “Loose lips sink ships.” In regard to necessary National Security (which is the secrecy to protect our nation). Interesting how close the word, Security, is to the word, Secret. No?

As long as there are nations to protect, there will be borders to protect. Thus, national security issues.

Pyramid Schemes

Most people think pyramid schemes are Ponzi schemes.

The less knowledgeable accuse multi-level and network marketing companies of being pyramid schemes. They are not. They are one of the easiest ways for people with hardly any up front cash, to actually get rich—maybe not quickly, but nonetheless I have seen it happen.

What’s absurd is that these MLM and network marketing companies model their businesses after other companies who legally “get away with” fraud—yes, the fraud that most people think they’re guilty of committing!

However, I find it very interesting that there are many ways for governments (think lobbyists), and multinational corporations (think stock trading and currency exchanges), to behave in ways quite similar to pyramid and Ponzi schemes, yet no one is being prosecuted.

Banks and insurance companies seem to skip happily along, all the while, taking advantage of the “little guy.” Present day raping and pillaging.

Ancient Pyramids

A few years ago, I was told by two different friends to watch a documentary called, Pyramid Code. Here’s the extended trailer for that intriguing movie: https://youtu.be/04j7rksyRzQ

Even before I laid my hands on the neolithic stones at Knowth and Newgrange in Ireland, and Avebury in England, and dropped quickly into meditation seated near a bluestone inside the stone circle of Stonehenge, I believed “The Powers that Be” were holding things back from us. Concealing secrets that could shift our world view.

Knowth and Newgrange are now thought to be the oldest astronomically oriented structures known to exist, predating Stonehenge in England and the great pyramids of Egypt. But for whatever reasons, they haven’t been romanticized as much. Perhaps, there are political reasons.

I knew many years ago that secrets were kept from us. I just didn’t know how far down the rabbit hole I would have to go, or if I would want to know, how intricately Everything is Connected.

And I bet that I am only continuing to scratch the surface.

Lifestyle and sexual LABELS

Why should we care about anyone’s lifestyle choices?

Why should you care about whether my husband and I have sex or not? Or why should we care who sleeps with who? (Consent implied.)

Why are other people’s personal lifestyle choices any of our business? Why do we judge?

I get that you may care about my well-being because:

I am a human;

I’m a woman, mom, and grandmother;

I am kind;

I am an empath;

I am sensitive.

And that’s all well and good.

I care about you too! Because We Are All Connected.

We are each a bright shining fractal of Ever-Living, LIMITLESS Source Energy! Creation never ceases!

I am love-and-in my spirit and heart: I love unconditionally–that means without conditions, such as: I don’t care how much money you have or don’t have. I don’t care what ancestry you have, what skin tone, what ailments, what religion-or not, and certainly not what gender or sexual orientation you are-think you are or want to be!

Underneath the outer layer of our skin, we are all pink! Our blood is blue until exposed to oxygen and then, it’s red!

I think we care about each other because we are human. We are ALL human beings.

Why are other people’s personal lifestyle choices any of our business? Why do we judge?

Sex life – must it be out in the open?

There, I said it.

Where are my BISEXUAL friends?

Men, women, non-binaries?

Are you willing to speak up?

And why is it important to authentically speak our truth?

I don’t want to exclude ANYONE. I want to be known for Inclusivity.

Because We Are ALL Connected. Because I believe each of us matter. I believe each of our voices matter. ❤️🦋🌀〰️

And, yes, I want you to yell FIRE in a theater, IF it’s on freaking FIRE!

Speaking your truth is healing!

Family secrets

For many years of my life my mother didn’t trust my dad. She loved him dearly, but he had committed infidelities. She trusted me and told me when I was young of his indescretions. Probably not the best thing to do, but my mother was very close to me. For years, she called me her miracle child, her angel. And I don’t think she ever meant to turn me against my dad, but she needed someone she could trust and so, she confided in me.

Many years later, after her passing, my adult son, found pages and pages of her diary. And many of the things he read were disturbing.

He’d not heard all of the “bad” stories about my dad before and he was getting the uncut version from mom’s writing.

Since my son was very close to my dad, these revelations from the pages of mom’s diary threw my son into a tailspin, literally! (In fact, he had an accident one night after learning all that and it nearly killed him!)

In one letter my mom even accused my dad of “running around with men.”

I had seen a similar note she had written too, and she had used the word, “camp.” Since they did call their northern home “the camp” and since we all went camping, I didn’t think much of it, until I mentioned it to a gay friend. He asked me, “don’t you know why men use the word, “camp”? And I didn’t—though I had heard some references to certain movies being “camp,” like the Rocky Horror Picture Show, which was pretty gay.

Anyway, I will never know if my mom’s suspicions were founded on anything true or not, other than I know my dad was a lady’s man. And my whole point here is to ponder why I should care anyway.

When a friend of mine posted the following one day on Facebook, it brought up all these memories and I started taking down some notes on the subject:

Post from a friend

Jan 31, 2019 S.S. a friend of mine posted the following on Facebook:

Who are my BISEXUAL friends out there?!

Men, women, non-binaries?

Are you willing to speak up?

I’ve been reflecting on the invisibility of our kind… LOL. It’s funny, but not funny. Sometimes it’s really damaging or just plain frustrating.

Are we now willing to admit it to it?

When maybe it’s been safer not to.

It’s been a long road for me to talk about it publicly. But then, how do we find and know each other?

For support, for connection, for community… It’s a unique and often lonely path seeking to be understood by our families, our culture, even our friends… even WITHIN Pride community.

Can we find better ways to be included?

To support one another. To be seen and heard.

How does being bisexual affect our relationships? Our choices? Our mental health?

How do we self-determine or craft our personal narrative outside the lines of “moderate” culture? How do we get better at articulating our truths in this world?… Thoughts?

Love you ALL for your courage to live authentically! ❤❤❤ #BeProudOfWhoYouAre #RadicalAuthenticity

(As a disclaimer, bisexual is just the term I identify with most strongly. Of course, this is meant to be inclusive of those who consider themselves pansexual, omnisexual and heteroflexible. 😊)

Jan 31, 2019 S.S. posted on Facebook

I humbly applaud my friend for her transparency to share. I felt the courage and conviction of her words. Yet, I sat on several drafts of THIS post for YEARS.

No labels

I am all for NO LABELS!

I could care less what people do (or with whom) in the privacy of their homes, cars, RVs, motel rooms, tents, bathrooms, etc. and I don’t even mind public reasonable shows of affection (it doesn’t have to be vulgar—yes I know I am still judging). And between consenting adults, please. (My mind cannot abide with people taking advantage of children—see my previous post about that.)

Yes, I accept all for who they are. (But I don’t have to live with them.) I have had way too many experiences on different levels than to judge—more than I just did.

We were given a brain and free will though. We do NOT have to remain in abusive situations!

My adult kids and I have talked about this issue a ton of times, and I love our open communications about it all. (We have talked more since my son found mom’s diary pages.)

Neither of my kids judge others either, and as a parent, that’s something I am exceedingly happy about. (Because I feel it’s the one thing I did right as a parent)! 😉🥰❤️

But secrets can still be disturbing when they are revealed.

Putting all this out here, on my public blog? Well, it sort of feels like I am in that dream where you go to school naked!

It is far easier for me to tell you what Heaven (what I call the Grand Beyond) looks like than talk about sex here.

Isn’t that weird?

Are you ready to bare your soul? Free your soul?

The house that Sheila built

House of lives

The house that Sheila built is not a house in the physical sense, but a house of Connected Persons. Persons who are Connected to me spiritually and soulfully. These are people who are of the utmost importance to me. The VIPs of my life!

Perhaps this is a sort of moral inventory I am making here, but as a store has inventory, my “house” is made up of all the dear people I have had the immense pleasure to know.

As an only child, I am humbled and surprised at the number of incredible people who have and continue to walk the road of life with me. Hmm, what a thought!

Husband

I’ve heard it said that as we age, friendship with our spouse, or significant other, is more important than physical attraction (or sex). I agree.

If you are lucky enough to meet and marry your soulmate, then there’s that. And it’s really beautiful if you can bring as much happiness to this person as you do for yourself.

My husband, Richard, is truly my soulmate and “love of my life.” ❤️🙏😘

My first two marriages ended badly, and while I learned life lessons from both relationships, I regret the hurt and pain. I can’t turn back time. And for my part, and yes, each person owns some of the responsibility of failing in those situations (no one is really better than another when it comes right down to it), but for some, that takes years to see. Thus, I am sorry. I thought I did my best, but we can’t see what we can’t SEE.

Children and grandchildren

It takes children to make grandchildren. Thus, it seems I should speak of my own children next, but no. Reason being, I wasn’t as mindful or “aware” of the profound soul Connection I had to my children when they were young.

So, let me tell you about the deep soul Connection I have with my eldest granddaughter, Jennifer Ann. My relationship with her best represents how nuanced and intricately interlaced ALL of our Connections are (though for the most part, unacknowledged).

My story with Jennifer goes back 10 years…

I was working in Boca Raton, Florida. I still remember taking my cell phone outside and walking up and down the hall while breathing with my daughter while she was in labor with Jennifer. I missed Jennifer’s actual birth, but treasure my memories of helping my daughter with her childbirth breathwork (eventually, Jennifer had to be born via C-section).

Anyway, as soon as I could, I took a few days off and flew to Connecticut, so I could comfort my daughter and meet my new granddaughter. Oh, she was an indescribable JOY to hold!

Throughout my visit, I observed (and felt) the spiritual Connection between Jennifer and myself. I explained the experience in my book as follows:

When I held Jennifer, I felt an immense resonance – truly representative of “Unconditional Love and LIMITLESS Source Energy.”

I spoke these words to Jennifer, “I know who you are. You are pure positive Source Energy.” At the precise moment the word “energy” left my lips, Jennifer whipped her head around – so much so that it surprised me – and looked me straight in the eye! The look she gave me as our eyes met seemed to ask, “How did you know”?

Excerpt from:
Murrey, Sheila. “Take It Upon Yourself to Live a Wholly Vibrant Life!” Apple Books.

Years later, when my twin granddaughters were born, I flew to New Hampshire, but this trip north challenged me to drive in the snow and ice over an hour from the airport to the hospital. I’d do it all over again though, as to stay in the hospital with my daughter and her girls the first 3 days of their lives was a priceless experience!

While holding my twin granddaughters those first days, I felt the nearly indescribable love and soul Connection with each of them that I’d felt (and continue to feel), with Jennifer.

At the end of one of my visits, I had instinctively swirled my fingers towards both girls in an energetic spiral manner, and both Jaclyn and Jewel had loved it. (Later I realized my dad had done this, so my spinning my index finger in circles wasn’t “instinct,” it was learned and fixed in my subconscious!)

On a subsequent visit, one of the twins, Jewel, had began twisting and twirling a lock of her hair. At that moment, however subconsciously, I believe Integrated Spiral was birthed.

I didn’t acknowledge or realize my previous spiral energy actions had made any influence on the girls until Jewel began twirling her hair.

I thought about the times when my two children were babies and my dad had swirled his finger towards their bellies and said, “bory bory” (we still don’t know why or what it means), and they would gleefully coo! Children are sooo easily mesmerized!

Coming back around full circle to my children, I love my daughter and son dearly. I cannot imagine who I’d be, or even if I would still be alive at this point, had they not come into my life when they did. I grew up in multitudinous ways with them. ❤️

Extended family

We don’t pick these folks, but love them or not, they can teach you invaluable life lessons if you are open to receive. So, judge not.

We all seem to switch places as the years go on, and you really don’t know who will come through for you when you least expect it and need them most.

Mentors

I’ve written a previous blog (here), some years ago about the exquisite mentors I have had the privilege to know, work for, and befriend. I do not believe I could have progressed in my life and career without their brilliant advice, support, and friendship.

Everyone should have a mentor and in turn, mentor someone. It is a rich relationship, that reaps lifelong benefits, well beyond money. A mentor can bring balance and stability, by bringing new awareness and offering you different perspectives.

Often the old saying is true, it’s not what you know, it’s who you know.

Friends

When I was young, I always befriended those who were not immediately or easily acknowledged, accepted or liked by others.

I have always stood up for the underdog. And I have been bullied for it.

When the first black family moved to our town, I befriended the children. They were sooo friendly and we got along famously! I didn’t see color or ever think to treat anyone any differently because of their skin tone, or any different feature, but other kids did and I was curious as to why that was the case.

I went home and mentioned to my folks how much I enjoyed my new friends company (and how not many others seemed to) and my mom was fine with me inviting them over. But my dad cautioned me saying, “you can be friends, but nothing more.” Later, my mom clarified that dad would never want me to date anyone of a different race or nationality.

It was the first I knew of racism, and it really perplexed and bewildered me! I felt the emotional pain of conflicting thoughts.

Thankfully, dad changed (or softened) many of his views before he left this earth, but the memory of that emotional hurt still lingers. My mom was much more open to discussing race with me because of our Cherokee Native American ancestry. (I am of mixed ethnicity.)

Though my complexion is light, I consider ALL my brothers and sisters. It is also why I wrote this:

“Dancing with the Energy,

In the pinpoint center of the spiral,

She came alone with no siblings.

But as she unwound herself, the spiral emerged.

Then, she harmonized with many, and THEY became her siblings.” ❤️🦋🌀

To this day, I hold my true friends near and dear to my heart. I love that my circle of friends include beautiful hearts and souls of every race, creed, religion, sexual orientation, political affiliation, etc.

Sheila’s poem, “Dancing with the Energy” – screen capture from her Clubhouse bio.

I choose friends based on their heart, and the soul Connection I feel when I am with them (even if only by voice).

Yes, interestingly, some of my dearest friends I haven’t even met in person. We’ve only met by phone on Clubhouse or on Zoom. Soul Connections do not rely on the physical. Isn’t that intriguing?

Colleagues

After having spent 30 plus years in Information Technology, I have gotten to know and spent many days, weeks, months, and years working with many excellent colleagues. And I do mean, incredible people. I am thrilled to have formed lasting friendships with many.

Several former colleagues continue to Connect with me (even if initiated for a reference—but always to chat about a bit more than superficial things). I am always happy to hear from them. Giving out professional references is one way I can “give back” in honor of the help and advice my mentors always graciously gave me.

In particular, I want to thank the many “scary smart” folks I had the pleasure of getting to know, and working with at:

  • The Veterans Administration on the VETSNET team (4 years, 4 months) of employees and contractors from Liberty, Booz Allen Hamilton, Halfaker, and others, while employed by Advanced Systems Design (ASD).
  • Emerson Process Management (3 years)
  • Jabil Circuit
  • AT&T Mobility
  • Walt Disney World, Parks & Resorts Operations
  • Campus Management
  • Florida Virtual School
  • US Air Force Space Wing (2)
  • NASA, Space Gateway Support, and InDyne Inc. at Kennedy Space Center (5)
  • Lone Star College
  • OnSource Consulting, Inc.
  • Ellucian (4)
  • Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (10)

Acquaintances

Smile. Be nice or at least kind to everyone you meet. You really never know when or where people will pop back into your life.

I have had some people show back up in my life (from seemingly unimportant encounters), that have utterly astonished me.

Some individuals have shown up again in my life “out of the blue” providing me evidence that metaphysical or supernatural powers are indeed at work—often. There’s simply been too many bizarre and uncanny encounters occur (incredibly timed) for me to simply chalk these kinds of experiences up as “coincidences.”

In closing

I believe (because I’ve witnessed it), that everyone moves along at differing rates of speed. And thinking that thought helps me when I don’t understand another’s perspective. As well, my mantra of Everything Resolves to Gratitude helps me a lot too!

I choose to hang with uplifting souls to help mySelf! It simply FEELS great! ❤️🦋🌀〰️

The more things change, the more they seem to circle back (and stay the same).

So, I would like to offer the main intention I bring into each relationship, and yes, at the start of each day and in any difficult moment:

To offer a way to open your mind to receive the Connected nature of it ALL.

Faeries

One weekend in 2017, a friend and I attended a Fairy Faire at Spirit University in Sarasota, Florida. I’m drawn to the unusual, yet I had never gone to an event quite like this before.

Spirit University held the event both inside their building and outside, with a roped off area. Inside, there were about 12 psychics offering readings. And outside, there were two food trucks, and about 10 vendors selling various things. It was a spritely time. 🧚‍♀️

There were only 3 musicians playing music throughout the day outside.

Their emcee introduced a variety of speakers. Each speaker talked for 15-20 minutes on spiritual topics. A friend, John Springer, spoke about the faerie realm and passed around photo albums of the many pictures he had taken of the places where faeries might live, in the woodlands and forests. I was enthralled!

It was $3 to get in the door and they put a paper wrist band on us so we could go in/out of the building. Readings were done upstairs, just the way they used to do it at another venue I’d attended in the past.

My mother had recently passed and I had hoped to hear something reassuring from her. But I didn’t set any particular expectations.

What happened next, quickened my heartbeat and stunned me to my core.

Just as I sat down with my reader to begin the reading, I could hear a distinct change in the music that was wafting in from outside. It was Celtic music! This went on during the whole time of my reading!

By the time we’d finished and I made my way back downstairs and outside, the Celtic music had stopped. It was sooo surreal.

I don’t remember a lot of the words from the reading (though I did record it). I did Connect with the reader and felt she was “onto something.” But I will never forget the Feeling of Presence. Perhaps it was my mom directing the Irish music, or my ancestors. I don’t know, nor does it matter. What matters most, is that I felt totally supported.

Everything I learned from attending this Fairy Faire, influenced what would come next in my life, such as my decision to go on a Sacred Celtic Journey. As well, the knowingness I gleaned continues to inform the work that I do within the transformative program of: Integrated Spiral™

John Springer crossed over to the Grand Beyond recently, and I pulled out my notes to write this article, in both memory of him, and to honor the faeries.

The feeling of opening I felt while listening to John speak so lovingly and graciously about the faerie realm, really made an impression on me. John taught me to place crystals, shiny buttons, or other small pretty things, outside for the faeries. Sprites love shiny things.

I learned if you take something from an area, such as a small rock or stone, you leave something for the fairies.

While I have always loved animals, it has taken me much longer to appreciate insects, birds, trees, and forests. And that’s okay, because I appreciate them, Now.

If you look closely, you may see a sprite (faerie) or two, atop the yellow flowers I’m standing near at Glastonbury, England. (2019)

When I planted a fig tree on the property in Hollister, Florida (where we lived Off Grid for 17 months), I placed many crystals and a few broken pieces of jewelry, in a circle around the tree, as gifts to the sprites. And a wink to my teachers.

Note to self: While we were on our Sacred Celtic Journey, friends, John and Carol told me about the John Van Aucken book on fairies gnomes and elementals. I have yet to read it, but it’s on my list! ❤️🦋🌀〰️

Sometimes, when I wake in the wee hours of the morning, I remember that Celtic music… 🎼 🎶 🎵 I remember and listen. I imagine I’m back in Ireland, England, and Scotland. I feel for my roots. I imagine my family. The generations before. I smile. I cry. I give thanks for magic and mystery. I feel all is well. Even when appearances may want to suggest otherwise. I know much is not what it seems.

The faeries have taught me that.

Many blessings to you in ALL ways.

Dying thoughts

Final thoughts

No, I’m not dying. Not yet anyway.

But I will one day.

So will you.

Dying thoughts

I’ve never been afraid of death.

It’s wild though because death and public speaking are supposed to be the two main, or top fears of people.

What’s important to say is, before, or as I take my last breath on this earth, I will be thinking of my family.

I woke up in the middle of the night tonight thinking how amazing it was that I got to fly in a jet airliner twice in 2019, to England, Ireland, and Scotland! The sheer magnitude of it! Of traveling that way!

And how my ancestors from “across the pond” (England, Ireland, Denmark, and Germany), had to deal with months on a ship and high seas to reach America—a far away land they could only dream of before they came here.

I go back in my mind—to my travels abroad of 2019–and give deepest thanks for every moment!

I whisper “I love you” to my ancestors, most of whom I never knew in this life.

And then, I whisper, “I love you” and blow air kisses to my daughter, son, and granddaughters!

I touch my husband (sleeping beside me) and feel incredible gratitude for his love and our years together. Especially since there was a person, unbeknownst to me at the time, who attempted to keep us apart.

Spiral thought: A recurring theme in my life, people jacking me around, trying to keep me from getting a job, or such. And without my knowing, sometimes for YEARS! Suffice to say, I hold no grudges, nor do I wish any ill on those certain individuals. And yes, I know who they are, though I sincerely doubt I will ever know their intentions or reasons for their behavior.

In the grand scheme of things, I have been shown that “Everything happens for a reason.” And more importantly, “Everything Resolves to Gratitude.”

I breathe easy and sleep well. I know the love of family, forward and back.

I know, “Love truly does conquer ALL.“

And I know, in multitudinous ways, “We Are Not Alone.” We Are ALL Connected.

What LIGHTS me up? Divine Flame

What is it that lights me up? What’s the Divine Flame?

My purpose is what lights me up.

I sit and look at my PEACE board that I drew for my Integrated Spiral™ program. And what I see, what I know is that I AbSOULutely love to talk and share from my Soul about holistic health, healing, transformation, and of course, Omniscience God and Spirit! ❤️🦋🌀

Per my body graph:When I feel resistance, or frustrated, it is because I made a decision by mental reasoning. My strategy is to respond until I feel satisfied. Unless I am a subtype of Manifestor, my job was never to be the Peacemaker I felt forced to be.

Yesterday, I let go…

Divine Flame

I let go of a 3 year friendship and wellness community (of which I had been a vocal and very visible part of—both on social media and blogging). Done.

Pain pushes until vision pulls.

I walked barefoot in the hot Florida sand.

I cried cleansing tears for less than 5 minutes.

My grief turned to compassion easily. —That’s because I do my Byron Katie “turnarounds.” And “go general” as Abraham-Hicks say. I am very adept at finding my next better feeling thought.

I worked my program of Spiral mechanics on my feelings. —I go deep to rise above, remembering what I have learned from my teachers (Dispenza, Lipton, Hof, Beckwith, Sadhguru, Lama Nicholas, Terrence McKenna, etc) so I can integrate and embody MORE.

What happened? WHY end a friendship?

NO ONE seems suspicious of the mainstream narrative. And while I am not necessarily suspicious, I do question and push back when I feel the need to take care of myself. I still Take It Upon Yourself to Live a Wholly Vibrant Life! Yes, I do! I read my own book over and over to remind mySelf.

Until now, for most of my life of 59 years, I have been a peacemaker. I would most naturally choose to back down from a confrontation.

But I am becoming more discerning.

I used to walk away from a fight because when one walks away, the fight ends. I learned that from the years I watched my parents argue, yell, and bicker. It’s the path of least resistance for me. Call it a coping skill. Whatever. It worked for me. It allowed me to give myself compassion. To love mySelf.

So, I don’t judge mySelf for that.

Yes, I have burned bridges in the past. It was necessary and I have no regrets. It kept me “safe.” Whatever that really means.

But NOW?

Now, I want to stand my sacred ground.

I don’t want to back down.

My Irish ire is up. Haha!

I have grown a backbone.

I know I’m a good person. But it’s more than that, (and because I know we are Energy beings, and that it’s ALL ENERGY), I am a multidimensional WHOLE person, who is worthy of being heard, at least, if not respected or honored. Those are all just labels anyway.

Yes, I am worthy to BE HERE NOW. Bless it!

I love to listen to Russell Brand, Brian Rose, Dr Joe Dispenza, Sadhguru and those leaders who can look and value ALL perspectives.

I teach Integrated Spiral™ courses because they have grown me into WHOLENESS!

☯️ Kaleidoscope: Finding value in Everything, Interconnectedness (We Are All Connected)

Yesterday. I was triggered by certain personal messages and responses, that differed from past conversations on the particular triggering topic, which I totally had not expected. Yep, I was blind-sided.

In the online community, of which we are both a part of many are supportive of each other. And I was often told what a wonderful person I was when introductions were made. We were supposed to be uplifting, inclusive, spreading love & light, ETC.

Well, I’m apparently not so wonderful anymore! Make one perceived misstep and it’s judgment city! Ha!

I simply brought an issue to light that a simple, “okay” would have been all the communication I needed. If that had happened, everyone would have easily moved on with their day. But, noooo!

Thus today, I witness the power of the Divine Flame 🔥 to burn away what isn’t necessary in my life and clear another path forward. We’re off to see the wizard, as the song says! ❤️🦋🌀🎼〰️🔥🙏☯️

Themes that runs through my life

  • Airwaves
  • Connection
  • CB Radio
  • Voice (Human Design speaks to this too, i.e. Throat – useful in getting attention)
  • Tone
  • Singing
  • Ego / Not being heard/acknowledged. My Spirit knows it doesn’t really matter. And that what does matter is ALIGNMENT
  • Healing: colitis/asthma all seeking peace from stress, hostility, fear, self preservation because I felt suffocated
  • Loved church (learning about God)
  • Loved chiropractic and how good it made my body feel, breathe easier
  • Loved to play not fight – why did others break my toys?
  • Loved the little old family cemetery—though little scary that was behind our neighbors house
  • Loved horses, cats, dogs
  • Loved driving, riding motorbikes
  • Deep thinker from talking more with adults than children when I was growing up
  • Loved to go down the street (escape home)*
  • Loved to play on the tracks / golf course, both opposite ends of my street*

*Wrote about this in First Friends

My Mission is unfolding

I’m noticing that a person’s mission can be different throughout life. I desire my mission to fulfill my purpose.

How?

Perhaps by doing all of the following:

  • Blogging
  • Writing books
  • Creating courses
  • Public speaking
  • Vlogging
  • Podcasting
  • Singing
  • Emceeing events

What’s a crazy thing I could do?

Put on a huge event showcasing ENERGY (Resonance Academy types, solar and off grid types, original music / songwriters, hand crafting artisans, storytellers, alchemists, holistic wellness practitioners, yogis, etc.)

What’s in my way?

What actions am I not taking?
What are my excuses?
What’s the real reason, belief that is holding me back?

Fear of Failure Fear of Success (I’ll have to quit my job, and my struggle is hugely tied to my education and career)

Fear of being told to “just get over yourself” (which I’ve already heard twice since starting to share my unapologetic truths), so guess I should just go BIG

Fear I don’t have a thick enough skin (because I’m so raw, empath)

Too old and not have enough energy

Fear of uncontrolled outcomes (like shock of spider, snake appearing on me)I can’t handle it (At the bottom of every fear)

Fear of upsetting those I love or who love me

What are the turnarounds?

Now, to TURN those around.

I have been successful in life.

I have failed, been scared, and risen from the ashes!

I have survived much worse than somebody’s judgement

I am continually growing my skin and participate in Empath Evolution and Women’s Soul Journey.

I’m wise and age is just a number. Look at all those older than me doing amazing things!

I don’t have to know how to handle every shocking event! Yet, I can handle it.

I will manage it (step by step).

We’re meant to do hard things.

Being unapologetic is freeing.

Who DO I think I am?

Look at what your ancestors struggled through to bring YOU into the world!! I acknowledge my ancestors DAILY

Don’t keep writing your future from your past. Write about the feelings of it, and then the details.

Lesson to grandchildren: I am
Let go of limiting beliefs Know power, strengths, Fears.

Who implanted these fears in me?

Stop fixing it – pop the DOING “bubbles“

Don’t sweat the small stuff

You and I are worthy

What’s bugging me?

Do something about it

Hang out with positive people!

Hang out with children

Hang out with older people

Ask them what they think, and listen! ❤️🦋🌀😘

What’s your vision?

Your core message to the world lights you up!

Transformation-hope-don’t give up

What do you think is stopping you?

Keynotes are different than aspiring free talks

What’s my vision?

My transferrable skills, credentials, spill over to this arena because I am a detective, scientist, tester, credible.

The vision of my future that fits in a picture frame.

Before accepting new commitments, look at my board and see if new opportunities align!!! Big one!! Especially after yesterday 6/14/21

If you want to feel good, don’t read this!

If you want to feel good, don’t read this!

Well, sort of. I mean, I can do click bait too, right?

Here’s some feeling good Aha moments that came to me after performing in a “Breakthrough” transformational performance program a few years ago:

  • Don’t ever believe it when someone tells you to “get off your high horse”!
  • I CAN “get on my high horse”!! Ha!!
  • I don’t have to lose my “humble and giving” nature to be all I can be!
  • I know what is good for me!
  • I am worthy!
  • I am loved!
  • I don’t have to hide the real me from anyone.
  • I learned a quick standing method to clear my chakras and I use it every day! Thanks Tess!
  • I still love and take care of my family and friends. I do not have to put “others first.”
  • I am never to old to have fun!
  • I don’t have to have a perfect body to be a singer/performer (Adele, Oprah, Chaka Kahn, several others were curvy ladies, yet still did what they love!)
  • I love the song we all sang together called, “Free to be me” which later in the year, during my Sedona trip, our group of 15 ladies sang!!! 

Karma

Watching karma happen to people who betrayed or hurt you.

Sometimes that feels good huh?

Karma. What comes around, goes around.

Watching someone get what’s coming to them, somehow justifies the truth you felt about them when they were acting (for a day, week, month, or year) like an a$$h0le. Yes? No? Haha!

Well, hear this.

As you justify yourself about that person or specific situation, you are MISSING something right NOW! A moment of relaxation. The pleasant blow of the warm breeze that’s just the perfect temperature for you. A person walking by whom you could have spoken to (that you will never have that unique opportunity again). A kiss from your loved one (who will not always be there).

So, be aware.

Aware more and more.

Awake and aware to all kinds of pleasing potentiality in your moments. The moments that life shows you, presents to you, all kinds of opportunities to be happy, or opportunities to be pissed off.It is YOUR choice, which way you want to feel. Every. Single. Day.

Know that each person or situation to appears to cause you pain or conflict, is in your experience to teach you something. When you analytically search for the source of pain in your body you will not find any independent inherent existance of it. Difficulties are a dillusion. Pain is not solid or real. It is like a mirage in the desert.

A benefit of knowing that We Are All Connected (really see the interrelatedness of all) is that we can release our mind of anger.

Here are some example scenarios:

Karma #1

A certain particular person I knew years ago, lost her job. When a friend told me, I felt ecstatic! Why?

I usually don’t feel good about another’s misfortune. I went back through my notes and found the reason. This person had been a stumbling block in my career–but, there’s no point in digging back into the details or the Energy of it now.

Thankfully, my career rebounded, and as readers of my book know, I took it upon myself to get well by natural means–and since 2005, have been able to travel as much as I want. Ha!

Karma #2

A guy that dumped me years ago, (after a relatively short relationship) told a friend of mine, that his wife is crazy. (I don’t know why my friend felt the need to share this with me, but I’m using it as an example.) This “man” is upset because his wife doesn’t want to have children and apparently, he married her in order to HAVE children. Oh my! People DO change their minds, after all. Things like this happen all the time.

So, did he have a relationship with me (years ago) because he couldn’t be with my friend back then? Or, is he feeding my friend a “line” to lure her into an affair? Perhaps, he’s simply an a$$h0le?

What comes around, goes around.

I realize it sounds like I’m jealous. But, I’m not. (I am so NOT a jealous person.) Yet, I feel sad for my friend and hope she sees through this guy– Then again, it’s HER life!! And NONE of this is any of MY business anyway.

In fact, everything I lived in the past has brought me to the place that I’m at NOW, with so much awareness, and appreciation, and awe that ALL has turned out the way it has. And that my life, now, is GRAND! In fact, from my vantage point today, I’d say that I am living my BEST LIFE!

I am the evidence of my well being.

When I feel great, resonating with and IN all that the Universe is providing, in that moment, it’s AMAZING! However, some others shrink back from it. Why? Why must some shrink to feel comfortable around others? Or why must others need to feel important to make others feel less? It’s an interesting conundrum, but one that I believe is answered in the yin and yang of it ALL.

Do you “get” why things are changing?

Think about the 1960s.

I am a child of the sixties. Born in the very early sixties, I remember watching president John F. Kennedy’s funeral procession (probably from the many replays).

The first transatlantic satellite transmission occured during the year I was born, so is it any wonder I believe We Are All Connected?

I remember the hellish Vietnam war and how many people seemed to snub their noses toward the courageous troops when they returned home to the U.S.A.

I grew up as an only child during a time when television was young and exciting, and could often be used as a co-parenting device. Big stereos, stuffed toy transistor radios, and Citizen Band (CB) radios were fairly common and certainly found in our household–as I’ve written about before, my dad ran an electronics business on the side for many years.

Dad could “talk skip” with people across the ocean on a clear late night. And that would always fascinate me. I would fall asleep listening to the ping from his Browning Golden Eagle and Linear and the jokes of Johnny Carson.

I would dream of where electricity came from! I would follow the wires as we drove somewhere and then ask my mom (who was dumbfounded) that her 6 year old would ask such thought provoking questions! Then again, she knew I was smart.

It’s really very simple, people in pain cause other people pain. You can only then resolve to suffer with your pain or resolve to do whatever it takes to relieve your pain. Setting boundaries work for me, and believe me, I’m much better at setting boundaries, now.

Many blessings to you in ALL ways. ❤️🦋🌀〰️

Speakers and Presenters: Grand Tips!

Grand tips for Speakers and Presenters

I have been speaking (and singing) in front of (and for) large groups ever since I can remember: in church settings, elementary school (putting on plays), college, social clubs, flea markets (selling products), networking events, yoga and music festivals (as emcee), and health fairs. I am no stranger to the stage. But, we can all refine and polish our public speaking and presentation skills, I am no exception.

I read an article today that prompted me to make a list of my tips, based on my experiences:

Before you speak

  • Know your subject well, yes do your research
  • Be able to defend or argue your story from multiple perspectives
  • Write down your speech and remove any filler words or phrases
  • Practice your speech in front of a mirror
  • When tempted to use, “you know,” “uhm,” or such just BREATHE (this space is necessary to slow your speaking rate down, as well as give the audience time to rest, make notes, and such)
  • Practice your speech in front of one or two people and ask for their feedback on how to improve it
Grand tips for speakers and presenters

Day of your speech

  • Meditate and expand your Energy out to ALL
  • Greet attendees or meet as many people at the event as possible, shake hands, fist bump, kiss babies, etc. (okay, maybe not kiss babies post-COVID times, but you get the idea)
  • Ease any jitters or “butterflies” using Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Jin Shin Jyutsu (JSJ), or such (even humming to yourself works)
  • Once on stage, tune into your heart center and share your story from “that place”—from your soul
  • Look at some audience members from different sections of the room
  • Make eye contact with friendly “light” faces
  • Provide VALUE— never tell a story that doesn’t make a point (Thank you, Les Brown)
  • Involve your audience, ask “Have you ever…” or “Has this ever happened to you?”
  • Smile and laugh genuinely, when it fits
  • If you ever feel nervous, off track, forget what’s next, or self conscious, be quiet for a moment and breathe, focus and speak from your soul, not your ego
  • Add color and depth to your personal stories, but don’t drone on, complain, or get caught up in negativity
  • People want to hear what you learned and how you grew from overcoming adversity
  • Don’t assume you know your audience—now, on Clubhouse, you probably won’t know them at all, and people are quite multifaceted these days
  • At the end of your lecture, bow and authentically with humility thank your audience for hearing you—they gave YOU moments of their lives

No matter which path you follow, stay Connected

No matter the path, stay Connected

Meditate on these words. Let me know what changes for you in a week. I love reading your comments!

The Nine Noble Virtues
Honor your elders (statue of Native American elders)
Diurnal cycle
Jesus in the center
Always consider Perspective
Mandala drawing
Walk a mile in another’s moccasins
Consider the relics
Completed Mandala – We Are All Connected
The healer in me, honors the healer in you. Medicine wheel; Sedona AZ
Be creative. Give back to nature.
ALL paths are merely suggestions.
Symbols remind and instruct us.
To ground us. To guide us.
Even about how to heal ourselves.
And learn new ways. An Iris is miraculous.
Activate your DNA daily. Feel the Godbumps (like goose bumps, but deeper).
Share your soul with others.
About your soul family.
And if you feel hurt… forgive yourself and your others.
Your vibration is ALWAYS key.
Connect with a tree. Even through a window.
And remember, even the most spiritual have to buy food, and take out the trash. Namaste.
Hold hands. Whenever you get the chance.

Tips for staying Connected

  • Walk outside
  • Smile at someone (even if you have to fake it)
  • Say something to someone
  • Write someone a note
  • Hug someone
  • Hold someone’s hand
