What’s Your Piece Of Good News?

“Everyone has inside of him a piece of good news. The good news is that you don’t know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is!” — Anne Frank

“Everyone has inside of him a piece of good news.

The good news is that

you don’t know how great

you can be!

How much you can love!

What you can accomplish!

And what your potential is!”

~Anne Frank

I saw this quote today and felt like I had to share it with you!  How incredibly inspiring Anne Frank was even under her dire circumstances!  I recall reading her diary when I was in school and it reminded me of how strong we can be when we have no other choice!

So since it’s Monday and the start of a new week (and the start of school for some students), I thought I’d send a little bit of inspiration to you!

Happy Monday My Friends!

Shine On!

Rabbit Rabbit White Rabbit April First

April First Rabbit

Happy April Fool’s Day!  Rabbit Rabbit, White Rabbit, White Rabbit!

Well, here we are my friends.  It seems like a bad April Fool’s joke that we are all on lock-down with the CoronaVirus and the aftermath of terror that it has been striking in so many people’s lives.  But the truth of the matter is clear.  We are all quarantined in one way or another at this time in order to not spread the virus to others.

I hope this post finds you and your loved ones healthy and safe.  We are doing well here although I do have to go to the food store at some point because we are running low on a few items.  Trying to get delivery or pick up times for grocery items has been sold out so there’s no other option except to go myself.  The last time I was in a store over a week ago, there were many empty aisles of shelving including for toilet paper, paper towels, cleaning supplies, bottled water and chicken or fresh meat.  The fellow shoppers were stressed and it was not a pleasant experience.  But today or tomorrow, I will go back to see what I can find.  How is it near you?

In other news though, the flowers have been blooming and I see the happy yellow daffodils swaying in the breeze.   Clover (the rabbit) has been out and about and does not hop away when she sees us anymore.  She is content to continue nibbling on her favorite green clover in the yard without worry that we will bother her.  Fatty the groundhog has been tamer as well.  He’s been out moseying through the yard lately and seems to have lost some weight.  The birds have been singing loudly too as well as the frogs at night.  It’s very early to be hearing the frogs here.  When I stepped out to bring the garbage out there was a little frog (the size of my thumb) on the door sill.  He didn’t even bother to jump when I walked over him.  Lucky for him, I saw him there and stepped over him so as not to disturb him.

I pray the new month of April will bring us all health and tranquility.  Stay safe my friends.  Reach out to friends and family.  Enjoy the simplicity of these days as Mother Earth heals a bit.  Stress and strain can wreak havoc on patience so try to stay calm.  Count your blessings.  Be kind.  Keep shining your heartlights. in the darkness.  Hope and love are key ingredients to healing.

Shine On!

Wise Advice From Sadhguru

wiseadvicefromsadhguru

You cannot suffer

the past or future because

they do not exist.

What you are suffering

is your memory

and your imagination.

~ Sadhguru

Being at home during this pandemic can be difficult for some people since life has slowed down (partly to a screaming halt), so there’s not a lot to do to keep our minds off of what we’d been avoiding.  It’s not as easy to bypass those memories or future worries that we can’t seem to process to completion.  So they perseverate and continue to loop and repeat if we let them.

I like this quote from Sadhguru because it’s simple to understand and breaks down the thoughts in an easy way for me.

Am I going to let memory or my imagination run my life in negative ways?

No, I do not choose that anymore.  What I choose is The Presents of Presence!  Being in the moment with my family.  Staying centered in my thoughts and staying prepared for what we need.

I hope that you and yours are staying healthy and safe during these uncertain times.  May you stay blessed and at home.  Keep shining your heartlights because we need to stay connected.

Shine On!

It’s Been Ten Years!

it'sbeen10years

I got a notification that ten years ago today I registered for this blog.  It is amazing to me that I started this journey so long ago.  So, Happy 10 Year Anniversary to my blog and to all of my followers!  I am very grateful for all of the blogging friendships I have made and for all of the amazing people I have met through blogging.

So, thank you for being you!

Much has happened over the last ten years in my life as I am sure it has in yours as well.  Many changes, much growth and new opportunities for which I am grateful.  The fact that I am still here 18 years after being diagnosed with breast cancer is a blessing to me.  I don’t take my life for granted and I have found appreciation for every precious moment that I am here for my loved ones and friends.

I appreciate The Presents of Presence in my life and the myriad of precious connections I have made because of those gifts.  Through each change, I have found peace even when I weathered tough storms.  I have always felt the angels looking out for me and my faith has steadied me through many trying ordeals.  While life school isn’t easy, the lessons we learn and how we grow from the experiences make it all worth it.

So today, I’m extending my appreciation for all that The Presents of Presence has given to me and for all of you who have connected with me over the years.  We have been through much together and have weathered many storms, thankfully.  You have taught me, inspired me, shined your heartlights into my life and I pray that you have felt my heartlight shining into yours with positivity, inspiration and love.

May you all continue to stay healthy through this Covid-19 virus.  May you shine your heartlights for all to see and continue to connect virtually with each other while this storm passes as well.  Because it will pass and our lives will be changed.  But perhaps we will find the gifts to be appreciated in the changes as I have.

God Bless.

Shine On!

Remembrance of Light ~ A New Message from The Magdalene

bluerosehealing

A dear friend of mine posted this on her site yesterday and I wanted to share it with you.  Please feel free to read more of her amazing work by clicking here.

Shine On!

“I’ve been guided to write today, so I locked myself away and asked the question that has been in my heart in recent days.  I believe that this same question is in each of your hearts as well so I’d like to share the answer I received.

3/24/20

What is the message for each of us who are looking to understand what’s happening now and what our role is for the coming months?

I welcome you to my invitation to join in the dance.  There are many who have waited for this time period to begin, and so it has begun.  We begin new work together, to awaken the hearts of mankind, this period is a time of triumph.  Each who hears my voice has been called to begin this work, it is a gentle re-shaping of the forms of old, a making space process that the heart of mankind may find comfort once again, may know of the mother’s touch once more.  That the heavily burdened heart may be lifted, no longer bound and restricted from its true function.

The time period you are in now is a time period of cleansing, purification if you will, it awakens from within you -that you may be released from the old formations, the dogma of speech placed upon you that restricts your movement in the freeform of space.

There lies about you a plasma of light, its fluid movement infiltrates the sensorial passageways of your being.

At present there is a relentless pursuit of happiness, all must come to know that joy comes from within, from the heart of goodness, of well-being and calmness.

Hold my hand, we begin this new work, to redeem the masses and awaken them to this truth.  Hold my hand tight, you have forgotten the teachings, the way of remembrance, of awakening.

There is upon you a new light of remembrance.  It has entered the atmosphere from deep within the galactic center.  It harkens the call to awaken.  It has become deeply embedded within the cell structures of those who seek the true heart.  It dances in a spiral nature within your cells at present, breathe deep, deep within the diaphragm, hold for a count of 10 and then release to the atmosphere all that no longer serves you, that the dance may awaken more fully within you.

Notice has been given, there is one who would seek you in the coming days to aid you in this awakening tribal dance.  It is a new heart song that will awaken the masses to the rhythms of the earth.

We would encapsulate you in the breath of life, free from thought and the power structures of old.  There is about you signs of the changing times, of the great mass awakening that has begun, hold tight, let not your tongue slip from your mouth in the negative speech, we co-create together the coming days, we germinate the seeds planted.

Sequester yourselves, remain silent, let the thinking mind drift as it does but each of you must remain centered in the heart, it is there that I reside and it is there that I would speak to each of you.  Listen, the heart knows the rhythms, it attenuates to the earth mother and the new galactic sequences that have entered.  Silence is required.  You are each tender hearted in your approach to life, you must be firm, sequester, a heart opening occurs within each of you.

A new source of income enters you each, the source that will hold you up, that will see your increase, that will bring you home.

We begin again New Lights, we begin the new work.  You are each soldiers and have received marching orders in the nighttime hours to begin this work.

Summer’s end, it is to this time period that we look at present, it is to this time that we point to the new beginnings, to the new encounters, to the heart song of old.  Resolve yourselves at present, resolve yourselves to this new heart song, it will see your increase, it will see you home.

A majority stockholders meeting has entered the minds of mankind, it is a deterrent to the journey home.  We dissolve all strings of attachment to those who would seek this path.  The winds of change have entered that the hearts of mankind may open, and they may find their way home.

Allow the plasma now to enter you, to restructure you, as a symbiotic relationship forms now that will allow you to breathe deep and to anchor into the heart center.  We rejoice in you! We have chosen well my Dear Hearts.

The Diamond Heart Center forms from the molten coal within you, a fiery burning of the heart as we restore you to your true self, the one without form who rejoices in the living and dances in the light.

Gather together in the weeks and months to come, you form a new dance amongst yourselves, you regenerate and re-form.  Gather in great numbers, form circles of light, sing and dance, let your laughter ring out, it beckons forth the heart of all who would hear and know.

I call you each home, I would welcome you, enter in, remain resolved to the journey.  Status Quo at present, four weeks are required that you may enter in fully, at the completion of this period of time we will draw you each forth to speak and to be known and to anchor in the heart-light more fully.

I Bestow Blessings on Each, I Bow My Head In Deep Gratitude,

The Magdalene

I know many of you will have questions about the portion written about Plasma so I’m including a link to a website I found to be helpful in explaining what plasma is and its importance to what’s happening now.

Plasma and Ascension

Love and Peace

The Good We Do

The good we do never dies. It lives on forever - in other people,

The good we do never dies.

It lives on forever – in other people,

in other places and in other times.

~ Matthew Kelly

I happened to see this quote the other day and felt like it was a great reminder especially on a Sunday morning.  Because goodness causes a ripple effect and we never quite know how far the ripple will reach.  Hopefully it will reach beyond the grave and we shall be remembered for our kindness and love.

That is the legacy I choose to live, having learned from those who have shown their goodness to me over and over.  It is not in the money that we make or spend, but in the time we spend, the memories we make and those priceless precious moments of truth, of goodness and of caring that last a lifetime in the hearts and minds of those with whom we come into contact.

There doesn’t need to be grandiose offerings, but instead small goodnesses add up to be more powerful in the end.  The daily love, caring, listening, and kindnesses far outweigh the every once in awhile big show.

It is in the simple love that we thrive, we grow and we blossom.

Shine On!

International Sunday

International Sunday

God bless, it’s Sunday!  But this Sunday has something special to it!  It’s 02/02/2020 which internationally is not only the same date, but it’s also a palindrome!  I was reading an article that explained that the last one was 11/11/111 and I certainly wasn’t around then to celebrate that one!

I love numbers and find significance in them.  Often I see the same ones repeatedly and then go to look up their meanings which often make sense to me.  The number one is special to me as is 3.  Coincidentally, Sunday is the 33rd day of the year and there will be 333 days remaining…how about that for interesting?

Also because of the different ways in which countries write out the date, 02/02/2020 will look the same internationally which I thought was a fun fact to share.  So no matter where you are in the world, when you write Sunday’s date, we will all write it the same numerically.  Could we ask for a day of peace and connection because of this phenomena?  Wouldn’t that be a wondrous miracle?

Alas, we can only dream of world peace, but at least we’ll all be on the same date/page for once.  Whether you are relaxing on Sunday, attending Mass or watching the Superbowl, I hope you have a day full of joy and peace!

Shine On!

Twinkly White Lights Make Me Happy

TwinklyWhiteLightsMakeMeHappy

The title of this post says it all!  I love Twinkly White Lights!  Don’t you?

I’m sitting here quietly at night, cuddled on the couch with a blanket draped over my legs and the computer perched on the arm of my couch typing to you.  As I look up over the screen of the computer I see my mantle shining with twinkly white lights festively decorated with the red left over from Christmas and in preparation for February’s holiday of Valentine’s Day!  Quiet soothing music in the background and I’m perfectly content.  Can you feel the magic?

It’s chilly outside, but not snowing.  It’s not the cold that happens when it’s terribly windy, but a peaceful winter’s night.  The perfect night to count our blessings and feel peace in our hearts.

We’ve made it through the first month of the new decade, although I’ll admit it felt like an extraordinarily long one.  Did you feel that way too?  It seems like many people felt that way, but maybe it’s just that January feels longer than most months since we’ve just come from the festiveness of December and it’s quieter than normal.

When we wake tomorrow it will February First and you know that means Rabbit Rabbit!  I haven’t seen my rabbits lately at all.  Mr. Groundhog made his appearance the other afternoon though and we have an outdoor kitty that I’ve seen hanging out in the yard.  I’m not sure if he belongs to any of the neighbors, but he looks strong and healthy.  We haven’t made friends yet, but perhaps one of these days.  So far, he will stand and look at me when he notices me but then scampers off into the woods.  I just hope he has a warm place to call home.

I hope that your January went smoothly as the transition to the new decade appears to have been a transition of sorts for many people.  A good transition, but a little rocky.  But then not all transitions go smoothly, but that doesn’t make them bad even when we fear change.

Have a lovely night wherever you are, whomever you’re with and whatever you’re doing.  I’m thinking of you all and wishing you serenity and an abundance of blessings.  My heart is full of gratitude.  My twinkly lights are shining and my heartlight is too!

Shine On!

Sunday Morning Inspirational Music

There’s a song called You Say by Laura Daigler.  Have you heard it?  It’s perfect for a quiet Sunday morning of prayer.  It was released in 2018 and part of the Christian/Gospel genre of music, but it has been playing on the radio recently which is how I originally heard it.  Do you know the song?

There’s such a peace that overcomes me when I hear this song.  It’s as if my heartlight opens up to shine with love, caring, kindness and gratitude for this precious life and for all of the love I’m receiving.

Take a listen and watch the video below.  The lyrics are included below the video in case you want to sing along.  Let me know what you think of it.  Does it bring you peace as well?

Shine On!

I keep fighting voices in my mind that say I’m not enough
Every single lie that tells me I will never measure up
Am I more than just the sum of every high and every low
Remind me once again just who I am because I need to know
Ooh oh
You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing
You say I am strong when I think I am weak
And you say I am held when I am falling short
And when I don’t belong, oh You say I am Yours
And I believe (I)
Oh I believe (I)
What You say of me (I)
I believe
The only thing that matters now is everything You think of me
In You I find my worth, in You I find my identity
Ooh oh
You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing
You say I am strong when I think I am weak
And you say I am held when I am falling short
And when I don’t belong, oh You say I am Yours
And I believe (I)
Oh, I believe (I)
What You say of me (I)
Oh, I believe
Taking all I have and now I’m laying it at Your feet
You have every failure, God, You have every victory
Ooh oh
You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing
You say I am strong when I think I am weak
You say I am held when I am falling short
When I don’t belong, oh You say I am Yours
And I believe (I)
Oh, I believe (I)
What You say of me (I)
I believe
Oh, I believe (I)
Yes I believe (I)
What You say of me (I)
I believe

Rabbit Rabbit December First!

Rabbit Rabbit December First

Well my dear friends, it’s December First which means it’s time to say Rabbit Rabbit, White Rabbit, White Rabbit!  Did you remember?  Well, if you didn’t, you can say it now!

The holiday season is here and with it comes all of the traditions that we’ve built up over the years.  Do you have holiday traditions at your home too?  What are they?

For us, it’s always been that we go to ‘our place’ to choose a live cut Christmas tree and then we bring it home, water it, let it acclimate to our home temperature and then decorate it the next day.  But we’ve changed it up this year.  Yes, I bought my first artificial tree for Christmas.  Me!  Whose tradition was a cut tree because I love the smell of balsam!  Me – who’s never thought artificial trees looked real enough.

But guess what?  I decided to go with the flow and I’m so happy I have!  Change is good!

Do you have an artificial tree or a real one?  I’ll admit it’s a new experience for my children as we all loved the live cut tree, but this new one is a great substitute.  It was really easy to set up and it’s full!  I bought some of those balsam scentsicles so that the tree smells real even though we know it’s not.  It’s pre-set with lights and even though I’ve always been a white light girl only, I’m enjoying the twinkling colored lights as well.

Sometimes I think we get bogged down with the limiting thought that the holidays have to be a certain way because “it’s tradition.”  Sometimes people have difficulty with not getting their way when it comes to holiday traditions.  But life is ever expanding and changing.  Traditions are lovely, but they’re not set in stone.  Life is fluid.  We have to go with the flow and change with the new situations as they arrive.  I know it’s not easy to expand our thinking especially when we strongly feel that we’ve always done it this way, so that’s the way it has to be.  But it really doesn’t.  Besides, traditions can be stifling over time and changing it up can add a breath of fresh air!  You never know, you may even enjoy the change like we have with the colored lights and an artificial tree!

As I sit here relaxing with the colored lights on, I’m smiling.  As it gets darker outside, I will push the new tree light remote and change the lights to white because I like them in the dark.  I always feel like white light is healing when it shines into the darkness.

Happy December First to you!  Whatever you’re doing, keep shining your heartlights!  Go with the flow and expand your thinking.  You may find unexpected happiness when you allow new traditions to emerge from the old ways!

Shine On!
