Heartlight Sky

I happened to look up. I wasn’t searching for a sign, but isn’t that just God-like and just like the Universe to let me know that feeling heart-centered is perfectly right in this present moment? I have always been a skywatcher. I love nature and sip my coffee outside often in the mornings to commune with Mother Nature. The wildlife here don’t disappoint with their silly antics, nor the birds with their visits and beautiful songs.

Cloud watching is an art form and I remember being a child and looking up at the clouds and letting my imagination take over. I could conjure up visions of clouds in the shapes of mountains, smiley faces and even dragons at times. But my delight in seeing a cloud in the sky, shaped like a heart was contagious!

It happened last evening and if you look closely, you can see the stars in the sky twinkling. The flash on the iPhone camera is why the photo seems as if it’s daylight, but it’s not. I was talking with a friend when suddenly I looked up and there the heart was right in front of me! I quickly took the photo and within minutes the heart cloud had faded away. Was it a sign from Heaven?

Being present is so important, don’t you think? Big grin. You know I believe in The Presents of Presence! For if I had waited even a few minutes, the heart-shaped cloud would have been gone and I would have missed my opportunity to remember that moment of the awe-inspiring beauty that nature delivers! Indeed, I wouldn’t have been able to share it with you today!

Capturing that moment still makes my own heart sing with delight! Because even the sky shares its heartlight with us when we take a moment to be fully present!

Shine On!

PS What else do you see in the photo? What do you think the cloud shape is to the left of the heart?

Did You See The Solar Eclipse Today?

A Ring of Fire Solar Eclipse happened today. Did you witness it? There are tons of photos all over the internet from people who captured this beautiful moment. The Solar Eclipse happened because the moon passed between the Sun and the Earth. Please let me know if you’re one of them as I’d love to hear about your experience! Unfortunately, due to cloud cover, I was unable to see it myself.

The Spiritual Meaning of today’s eclipse following the May 26th Lunar Eclipse has an emphasis on renewal, moving forward and starting fresh which, for many of us, is welcomed especially after all we went through in 2020. In other words, this annular Solar Eclipse could spark an awakening in all of us.

I find it fascinating that over the last few weeks I have been hearing from people in my life with whom I lost touch. In fact, there are those who often check in to my blog, even though we no longer speak, and I often wonder why – Curiosity? Sleuthing? Missing our friendship? I may never know the truth, but I want them to know that I am doing well and yes, I have known all along of their presence here.

I believe an awakening and the subsequent uncovering of truths is perfectly timed. As with an awakening comes the revelation of truths hidden for a long time. One can no longer hide behind falsehoods, nor versions of the truth. Empowerment increases when one chooses peace of mind and forgiveness.

Living in the present moment, loving what is and being grateful for the myriad of blessings we have is the key to happiness. Simple pleasures add up to an incredible life. When one sees beyond the static of superficiality, it is God’s grace that grows. Peace within allows us to sleep well. Holding sacred our loving relationships in this world is of utmost importance. Loving people, not things is a life lesson that awakens our ability to find peace during strife. Gratitude is a key component in finding inner peace. Unconditional love and acceptance grow in an awakened state. When we look back on these life lessons we will find that when we choose to live and let live, we grow our inner peace and radiate our heartlights at a higher frequency. We bond with others who are like-minded as the past drifts into nothingness.

Gratitude for the present moment and the blessings, big and small, which accompany it raises our life force and frequency levels. The hushed tones of the past no longer register in higher frequencies. We have moved forward in our journey with a continued loving heartlight and we now help others to shine again as well. That is our life purpose. We do not suffer in order t remain in a locked pattern of dismay. Rather, we choose to take these life lessons and help others along the way. We journey together and we are all connected. It is my understanding that there are those of us who are delivered hard lessons and are given the choices and resources to overcome such hardships in order to light the way for those who are in similar situations. When we remain open to help, angels appear to help us so that in turn we can help the next person. It is that ring of helping others along the ladder of life that grows exponentially when we choose to help and not hinder each person’s journey.

I am sending you all healing hugs today and always as we continue to shine our heartlights to help others to find their way. I am grateful to all of you who read my blog and I wish all of you joy and peace wherever you are on your life’s journey. Life is short my friends. Live with a renewal of love in your hearts and gratitude for The Presents of Presence daily.

Shine On!

The Peony

My sweet neighbors always remember me when their peonies bloom. It is a Springtime tradition that began long ago and continued even after I moved away and one that I am so grateful for each and every year.

There is nothing like a clear beautiful vase filled with the sweetest smell of freshly cut peonies in a home, especially ones that are delivered with kindness. My house has been so aromatic for the last week that I couldn’t help but to grin broadly each and every morning as I brewed my first cup of coffee for the peonies greeted me on the kitchen island!

I don’t often get fresh cut flowers anymore unless I buy them, but even then, sometimes they aren’t as fragrant as ones from a friend’s backyard. These were truly spectacular and I wish we had a smellavision on the blog so you could have enjoyed them too!

I was talking with a friend recently and the phrase, ‘kindness doesn’t cost anything’ was part of our conversation. How true is that! I always feel strongly about kindness. Don’t you?

Anyway, being that it’s June first and it seems my bunny has found greener pastures, I just wanted to send you a little blog post to let you know I am thinking of all of you and hoping you’re doing well!

You know as a gentle reminder, I can’t help myself and say, Rabbit Rabbit!

Shine On!

On Mother’s Day

This is the first official Mother’s Day without my Mom here on Earth. Last year, with the pandemic, we were unable to see her in person, but at least we could visit with her virtually which was a help, but still not enough. I longed to hug my Mom last year and this year the feeling is overwhelming as she is not here to hug.

I am one of those who feels with her whole heart and who thrives with affection. I am a huge hugger. I always have been as it is innate within me. I get that from my Mom who was also this way.

My Mom taught me so much in my life and I am forever grateful to her. She also loved with her whole heart unconditionally and accepted people for who they were without judgment. She had a strong faith in God and read her Bible, making sure she passed along the Psalms that were important to her. Years later, those Psalms are easily recited after years of repetition at bedtime as children.

I find myself a bit weepy lately. The phrase, “I just miss my Mom” repeats in my head and heart as I struggle this first Mother’s Day. Perhaps it is because her love was such an important part of my life. She gave love unconditionally. She always told us that she loved us, repeatedly. There was never a question in anyone’s heart if she loved them or not, because she did.

Her legacy not only rests within me, my children, and our family, but extends to so many others with whom she connected. I am proud that she was my Mom and that her kind, southern ways were cherished by so many people. She left a legacy of love that still lives within me.

God Bless those who love unconditionally with heartlights which shine brightly. Our world needs you!

Shine On!

Mr. Groundhog Returns!

I am very excited to share that I finally had a sighting of Mr. Groundhog (aka Fatty)! I haven’t seen him in months and was worried that the other more active wildlife here had perhaps taken off with him. But much to my surprise, he popped up into my yard and I was able to greet him with a happy smile.

Now I know many people may not be as enthusiastic as I am when a groundhog who has a large labyrinth underground has made it through hibernation only to pop back up, but I am! A few days ago after the farmer across the street had tilled the field, I watched a few groundhogs scampering across the street in the recently turned soil and hoped that perhaps one of them was mine.

Fatty is looking pretty lean so I hope that his munching on the dandelions (of which I have a ton in the yard right now) will fatten him up again happily after his long winter’s nap. Now I just have to wait and see if Mrs. Fatty returns as well!

Of course, you know I am anxiously awaiting a sighting of my darling bunnies. So far, I haven’t seen them, but I am keeping a watchful eye out!

Which by the way, reminds me – Today is…

May First which is….Rabbit Rabbit, White Rabbit, White Rabbit Day!

Shine On!

Full Moon In Scorpio

There are many issues that come to the surface with this Super Moon in Scorpio. Have you been feeling them? What used to work for us, the old ways and reactions, no longer seem to work anymore. A huge part of the healing process that we are working on has to do with forgiveness as well as the need to remain as non-judgmental as possible. For some this is easier than for others. But it is a very necessary part of the healing process.

Because we are all powerful manifestors and creators, we must let go of illusions and recognize how empowered we are! What does that mean for you? It means quieting the mind and allowing limiting beliefs to fall away. It is allowing feelings that may have been suppressed in the past to come to the surface to be cleared away once and for all. It is to see with more of an observational knowing that we are all here just doing our best with what we know.

May those who have fallen away from your life be released with gratitude for what we have learned through the life lessons shared with them. Every relationship serves its purpose to allow us to grow, to strengthen and to move beyond the limits that we were given. There are no mistakes. There are no regrets. There is just what happened and how we all moved on to heal from that time.

We are all empowered with healing energy, with a knowing of the truth once we allow ourselves to feel the emotions that we may have been suppressing and to release the past as we ready for the future light that is here now. It is the movement from 3D to 5D that we’re experiencing in case you’re wondering what is going on. We’ve been on this path for awhile now as it unfolds.

I hope you were able to see the full moon last night. I went out to take the photo above and then noticed the herd in the field. Below is the shot of them and as you can tell, that full moon lit up the ground below in a spectacular way!

You can see the house lights in the distance and the herd of deer!

I hope you are all doing well. I am sorry I have not been very active lately, but I am still here. Sending you all love and shining my heartlight to yours!

Shine On!

Happy Blessed Easter

I wish you all a very Happy Blessed Easter. May an abundance of Easter blessings be yours. Above is the stained glass window from my childhood church which brings me back to the decades of Sundays I spent looking at this amazing window.

When I saw this photo, it touched my heart in ways that I hadn’t predicted. Something so very familiar and yet from so long ago brought a tear to my eye in a nostalgic way. Have you ever had this feeling? It’s the tenderness in the moment wrapped in the gratitude for their love.

May you all stay well. May you keep gratitude and joy in your hearts. Please continue to shine your heartlights for all to see for we need more light in this world. God Bless.

Shine On!

Birthday Blessings

I am one of those people who loves her birthday. Perhaps it’s because I am so grateful to have made it another year around the sun that I am like a little girl when it comes to my birthday. The joy that emanates from me is palpable. Perhaps it is because I am a cancer survivor, but honestly, I’ve always been this way. I just love my birthday and I’m not afraid to show it!

Some people my age (ahem) may not feel the same way I do, but I can’t help it! I am thrilled to tell you how old I am for I have made it through some hard times and I’m still here! I’ve earned every wrinkle (through laughter and tears) and I’m thrilled that I can say I’m over 50 years old and still here! I don’t shy away from telling my age because it’s only a number to me. A way to count my years on this planet.

I feel immense gratitude toward all of the beautiful friends and family that I love so much for making my day special – each in their own way. There’s such a wave of love that has poured over me today that I am floating on a sea of love and enjoying every single minute of it. How I wish I could share this with you (well that’s why I’m writing!) so I can remember this special feeling.

The darling birds are chirping outside my window pane and I have my beloved cats here next to me as I sip my coffee in the quiet of the morning. My children are still soundly asleep, safe and happy in their home with me. All is well and I feel so much gratitude to God for all that I have.

This peaceful full of love feeling has my heartlight shining at maximum luminosity. There is a happy song playing in my heart. Can you hear it too?

Please allow me to share this joy with you! Allow my heart light and heart song to illuminate your day, shower peace and healing into your life and remain with you. Thank you all for reading and for being my sweet friends!

Shine On!

The Smell of Spring

March always reminds me of daffodils because they grew in the backyard of my childhood home. Being a March baby, I clearly remember my Mom cutting the daffodils and placing them in a vase on our kitchen table every year around my birthday. To me, daffodils are that joyful expression that Spring is coming (as is my birthday)!

There is something cheerful about seeing the daffodils and smelling the earth starting to come alive in Springtime. I bought myself a handful of daffodils yesterday at the store. As I arranged them in a small vase that was my Mom’s, I was smiling. It’s the little things, those precious moments that I treasure. Don’t you?

It’s been getting warmer here in Jersey and the birds are chatting away more than usual. Perhaps it’s not more than usual, but simply that it’s been so quiet throughout the Winter months. It’s good to hear them prattling away and calling to each other. I have been watching them eat from the suet bird feeders I got this Winter. They are so much fun to watch!

However, I saw that there is a possibility of a snow storm next week and much to everyone else’s chagrin, I’m smiling about it! I love snow as well and would welcome one last snowfall before Spring is officially here. Back in the 70’s I remember a snow storm on my birthday which I loved! Perhaps we have another one in store for 2021?

I hope that all of you are healthy and happy. I haven’t been writing as much lately, but I do think of you often. My darling rabbits and wildlife haven’t been seen in a long while. I’m not sure if they’ve moved, are hibernating or perhaps have met their demise which saddens me. I’m hoping for a resurgence in the Spring. I’ll stay in touch and let you know!

In the meantime, may you have a lovely Thursday afternoon in March wherever you are. May you take a few moments to notice The Presents of Presence in your day. Take an extra moment or two to just be, look up at the sky, notice the grass and the smell of Spring starting. Count your blessings and be grateful for your loved ones by your side. I am grateful for all of you.

Shine On!

Hello March!

I love when Rose Hill Designs by Heather Stillufsen posts one of her designs (like the one above) that speaks to me. In the past you know I have talked about rabbit-rabbit-white-rabbit-white-rabbit every first of the month, but today is a little different. I adore daffodils as they remind me of my Mom who passed last year. Every year in March, the daffodils in her garden would bloom and she would cut a few of them to put in a small vase on our kitchen table. Because my birthday is in March, I have always associated daffodils with my birthday (and my Mom).

So when I saw the design above, I felt drawn to write and to post it. Because I believe that even when we pass away, we leave a little bit of us behind in the memories of our family and friends. A chance remark, a certain phrase, a whiff of Spring or even a small bouquet of daffodils can remind us of the goodness in those who are no longer here. Perhaps it is a sign that they are still among us, even though we can’t see them. Or perhaps it is nothing but a coincidence.

I believe in signs, in synchronicity and that little is chance or coincidence. I’ve had too many inexplicable experiences to believe otherwise which comforts me. So today I wish you a Happy March as well as lucky – Rabbit Rabbit, White Rabbit White Rabbit!

Shine On!
