A Higher Vibration

You can tap into it anytime. When you're down, tired, used up, sick, overwhelmed or even experiencing great joy, you can align yourself instantly with a frequency that moves at the speed of light.....and through your life, if you let it. There is a higher energy level that is always moving, always available, always present to us, and as a Reiki master I have felt it, used it as a means to facilitate healing, and allowed it to enter and transform my life. Some think of this energy as God, and I do too, but I also like to think of God as pure radiance, pure light, pure love, a pure vibrational frequency that runs through every living thing. Every blade of grass has an angel standing over it saying, "Grow"! And it does. Whatever you believe this life force to be, whatever name you call it, call upon it now to move into your life, then hold on, cause that's when the fun starts!

I have noticed that when I'm motivated by love, when I'm aligned with a frequency…

People Who Annoy You

Nothing can pull me off center quicker then flat out meanness. Throw in a little self-centered, narcissistic behavior and I can get pretty bent out of shape....for a minute or two. My rebound time has definitely lessened over the last year, probably due to the fact that I am a much more centered woman now....but still a human being who is far from perfect. If you cut me, I will bleed. Words can cut deeper then a knife, this I know. The beginning of this week has served as a reminder for me that amidst great joy and happiness, and all the warm fuzzies a person can hold, there are those who like to mess with you. Separate realities can be totally irritating! Okay, this has to do with my former spouse. I am keenly aware, once again, of the fact that as a single mom I have to do a greater balancing act, and walk a tighter, higher rope sometimes in order to just function as a productive, contributing citizen in society. Divorces can, and do, create an imbalance of so-called power…

Stillpoints

I don't know about you, but my day can get so busy that it could easily spiral out of control. Being a single mom, a massage therapist and a jewelry business entrepreneur can make for some interesting days. I asked the Universe to use me, to show me where I'm needed, to use my talents....and boy, has it ever responded! Ask and you shall receive...in diamonds. It's a balancing act these days to be there for my child, for my home, my pets, chores, clients, associates, friends....then add in a fair amount of networking, phone calls, follow-ups, and well, it makes for a full day. There comes a time within these days to take a moment, or several if it's at all possible, and just become still. It's very underrated these days to just let yourself feel your breath moving in and out of your lungs. We hear about centering ourselves, just breathing, just allowing yourself to be.....but do we really do it? When I don't, I pay a big price. I lose things, I drop things…

Milestones

Reached a milestone today. One year ago on this date, at exactly this moment as I type, my husband walked out on me....and his family....and his life as he knew it. I honestly can't believe that a year has gone by already, and that it's gone by this fast. I am keenly aware today just how much I have to be grateful for. I am also blessed beyond measure by this last year, with all it's overwhelming anxiety, stress and pain, it was a necessary year in my spiritual developement....and in my coming into my own as a woman. Not a bad thing to gain for going through hell. Yes, there are rewards in this life.

So while this may actually be an anniversary for me, I like to think of it as a milestone, the place you reach, pause, look back and say, "Wow". It will also serve as a touchstone for me in my life for years to come. Not a place I'll visit to mourn, or bemoan or ruminate over, but a place to touch lightly, to remember that the Universe will indeed see you…

Thinking Outside The Box

Maybe should have titled this "A Year of Living Dangerously"......

This has been the story of my life, to think outside the box. It's considered dangerous because it's not mainstream, and if you do this people will think you are dangerous, but we can laugh knowing it's a good kind of dangerous! This type of thinking is so ingrained in me now that I can't imagine taking the straight and narrow (read that boring) way to do anything. The fun part is when you think you've expanded in all directions, that you've been unique in your approach, or downright outrageous (my personal favorite), you find you can go a little farther. Your imagination is an inexhaustible well of ideas. Priming the pump is what's key here. I hit walls all the time....I mean, all the time. When this happens I take it as a clue I need to access the deepest part of myself once again, readdress the situation, then pursue a new path. I pursue new paths often, I have to or I w…

What's This Thing Called Love?

Love comes in all forms, shapes and sizes. It's all love, and it's all good. Where we get bogged down in this emotion is when we think we know how it should look. Preconceived notions, you know what I mean....expectations.Ugh! That's where we trip ourselves up big time. Get rid of them and free the people in your life to express their own unique way of loving you. This covers romantic love, friendship love, family love, you name it. "If you love me you'll do"....this, that, or the other. "If he/she loves me"....they would do this, that or the other. "If my kids truly loved me they would know how much I sacrificed". "If my friends loved me, they would give me"....you fill in the blanks. This is futile. Whether we say these things out loud or not, we will think them somewhere along the line, even if briefly. Ditch it.

Anytime we try to get out of another human being what we think we need, we lose that person to some de…

The Days It All Goes South

We've all had them, those days when you wake up thinking it's just a normal day, or better yet, when you've made plans that had you getting out and accomplishing a lot of tasks, going to appointments, or maybe even some pleasurable pursuits were planned.....and then it happens, the day rapidly deteriorates into something you have no control over. I had that kind of day last Monday. Without much detail, because really our own personal little dramas can be quite boring, I'll just say NOTHING went as planned. Everything became inconvenient, a royal pain, a series of unintended fiascos. "Okay", I thought, "breathe, relax", I even laughed for a moment at how perfectly everything fell apart! Now I know I don't have any real control over life, but I felt confident that surely everything would right itself in no time....on my timetable. Ha! Things went from bad to worse to scary. Still not going to go into detail, because my personal drama may not…
