Time

28301_

Have you ever noticed how time can drag on when you watch the clock or how fast it can speed by when you’re busy and not thinking about it?  I think time goes by slowly when we awaken in the middle of the night and can’t fall back to sleep.  Does this happen to you?  For me, there are nights when I wake up in the middle of the night and then I am kept up for hours by my busy mind.  I begin planning tomorrow’s to do list or I begin writing my blog in my head ~ but the worst one is if I hear a noise because then I lay awake debating whether I should go investigate!

Last night I heard the car door slam, and immediately looked at the clock.  5 minutes to midnight and I had just woken up a few minutes beforehand.  I was tossing and turning trying to get back to sleep.  Now my busy brain turned to wondering who was outside.  I said a quick prayer of safety because it could simply be a neighbor coming home and I began breathing slowly, in and out, trying to concentrate so that I could fall back to sleep.  It worked because the next time I looked at the clock, it was 6am! 

Does this ever happen to you? 

What do you do? 

Do you get up and go to the kitchen to make a cup of warm milk? 

Do you read in hopes of getting sleepy again? 

Or do you turn on the television to watch something boring? 

I’ve tried all of the above, but breathing in and out in a measured fashion and quieting my mind works best for me.  I’d love for you to share if this happens to you and what you do about it!  I figure the more solutions we share, the longer our night’s sleep is tonight! 

Because TIME Is On My Side ~ a la The Rolling Stones

Enjoy a little official version of their song ~ Happy Saturday!

Sweet dreams my friends! 

Shine On!

Spirits and Music

My friend JAngel and I went through chemotherapy together.  We just happened to be on the same schedule and so we spent hours together, cuddled amidst blankets in lazy boy chairs, alternatively sleeping and chatting easily while the red poison of ACT (our special brand of chemotherapy)  dripped into our veins for hours, killing all of the breast cancer cells which had invaded our healthy bodies.  Because we also had daily shots in our bellies, many times we met as we ran into the oncology office to get our daily shots, only to wave and say see you tomorrow.

I was 34 years old…JAngel was 25 and we were the youngest there so we bonded.  That was 10 years ago…and JAngel lost her battle in November ~ almost 2 years ago.  She was spunky, fun and a glass 1/2 full type of gal.  She didn’t let her breast cancer diagnosis (which was her second ~ having survived Hodgkin’s Lymphoma as a child) get her down.

We went to a support group together, met other women and tried to bring levity to our situations.  We laughed, we cried and we helped each other.  JAngel’s BC metastasized to her brain and it got harder for her to come to our group.  But when she came, she brightened our room.  We lost 2 of our friends and it got even harder for me to go to our group…and when JAngel passed, I stopped going altogether.

At the last minute a year ago, I went to see a medium and JAngel came through.  I knew it was her when the medium told me that she was a real Jersey girl…she said she wouldn’t back down and that specifically she was to tell me that I walked for 2 now.  She told me more so much that I just knew it was JAngel even though she wasn’t the reason I had gone to see the medium.

Sunday night while driving in the car,  JAngel’s song came on…and the beauty of her spirit filled the car as I heard her song…funny how certain songs can bring loved ones spirits right to your heart.  So I sang along with Tom Petty in her honor…

I thought you might like to belt one out for Jenn as well…so here goes…

This one’s for my Jersey Girl up in Heaven…xo

Well I know what’s right, I got just one life
in a world that keeps on pushin’ me around
but I’ll stand my ground
…and I won’t back down.

Perfect Self-Expression or The Divine Design 9

Perfect Self-Expression or The Divine Design 

I do use some of what Florence advises…I like some of her affirmations and I do find that they help to motivate me and to get my head in gear.  The one I like the most is found in this chapter…

“Infinite Spirit, open the way for my right home, my right friend, my right position.

I give thanks it now manifests under grace in a perfect way.”

Excerpts from Chapter 9

There is a place which he is to fill and no one else can fill, something which he is to do, which no one else can do; it is his destiny!   This achievement is held, a perfect idea in Divine Mind, awaiting man’s recognition. As the imaging faculty is the creative faculty, it is necessary for man to see the idea, before it can manifest.  So man’s highest demand is for the Divine Design of his life.  He may not have the faintest conception of what it is, for there is, possibly, some marvelous talent, hidden deep within him.

Give Divine Design the opportunity to work for you!

Try it NOW!

Intuition and Guidance 8

Intuition and Guidance

I will allow Florence to explain her views on Intuition and Guidance…but I’d love to know what you’re thinking…

Excerpts from Chapter 8

I have often been asked just how to make a demonstration.   I reply: “Speak the word and then do not do anything until you get a definite lead.” Demand the lead, saying, “Infinite Spirit, reveal to me the way, let me know if there is anything for me to do.”

The answer will come through intuition (or hunch); a chance remark from someone, or a passage in a book, etc. The answers are sometimes quite startling in their exactness. For example: A woman desired a large sum of money. She spoke the words: “Infinite Spirit, open the way for my immediate supply, let all that is mine by divine right now reach me, in great avalanches of abundance.” Then she added: “Give me a definite lead, let me know if there is anything for me to do.”

The thought came quickly, “Give a certain friend” (who had helped her spiritually) “a hundred dollars.” She told her friend, who said, “Wait and get another lead, before giving it.” So she waited, and that day met a woman who said to her, “I gave someone a dollar today; it was just as much for me, as it would be for you to give someone a hundred.”  This was indeed an unmistakable lead, so she knew she was right in giving the hundred dollars. It was a gift which proved a great investment, for shortly after that, a large sum of money came to her in a remarkable way.

Giving opens the way for receiving. In order to create activity in finances, one should give. Tithing or giving one-tenth of one’s income, is an old Jewish custom, and is sure to bring increase. Many of the richest men in this country have been tithers, and I have never known it to fail as an investment.

The tenth-part goes forth and returns blessed and multiplied. But the gift or tithe must be given with love and cheerfulness, for “God loveth a cheerful giver.” Bills should be paid cheerfully; all money should be sent forth fearlessly and with a blessing.

Here’s another Florence reference post:  listening-in-2

Are you listening to your gut? Your Intuition? Your inner guidance?

Listen up!

Penguins…Messages from Heaven…Pop Pop

Yesterday I spent with my Mom and we were going through my Dad’s email account to see if we had missed any messages from people who didn’t know that he had passed away back in June.  I did find 4 people who were continuing to email him and probably wondering why he hadn’t been responding as he was an avid emailer, so I sent them a note to reach out and let them know what had happened.

In looking though the messages, I found one from July 6 from my 12 year old son to Pop Pop.  I couldn’t believe my eyes…what in the world?  My son knew Pop Pop had passed so why was he emailing him?  Immediately I opened the email and read:

On Mon, May 7, 2012 at 7:08 AM, Pop Pop wrote:

Good luck today, Misifusa.  (FYI:  I was having surgery that day) Hope I have R**’s correct email address.  Luv ya, Dad  (He included a penguin video as he knew my son loved penguins ~ I’ve included a different one b/c the one he sent isn’t available anymore.  My son R** & I picked this one for your enjoyment!)

My son R** doesn’t check his email often, so when he saw this email from Pop Pop to both of us, he replied on 7/6/21 to Pop Pop

You do have the right email.  I remember memorial day buddy.  Glad you’re in a better place now 🙂 Luv ya too, your grandson (R**)

My heart just broke open as I read it aloud to my Mom…we began crying and with every recounting of that moment, I burst into tears.   I just can’t believe he wrote back to Pop Pop.  So when I got home yesterday, I talked with him.  I held him and told him how proud I was of him…how amazing I think he is and I asked him why he wrote back.  Simply put, he said, “I figured Pop Pop could read it from Heaven.”

And it was then and there that we began such an interesting conversation about Pop Pop’s life after death.  It seems that my son hears Pop Pop’s voice saying, “Hi Buddy” occasionally and while it doesn’t scare him, he thinks it’s a good sign that Pop Pop’s doing ok and so do I.

Angelic Help

Angels Watching Over Me…

Life has it’s good days and it’s not so good days and in embracing the thunderstorms of late, I am looking forward to the beauty of the rainbow when it arrives.  However, I also realized that lately I’ve been too busy trying to control all aspects of life, trying to do and be everything to everyone in an effort to make the transition easier for all.  I’ve often wished that I could clone myself in order to accomplish all that I see that needs to be done for all of the loved ones in my life.

My thunderstorms are normal I believe because they’re part of nature…and I do enjoy the real weather thunderstorms which come in summer.  The emotional thunderstorms are just a manifestation of what I’ve done or better said, not done.  The last few days, I’ve been too busy to Look Up and Ask for Help!  After I wrote yesterday’s blog, I had a long car ride by myself and during that time, I just allowed myself to talk aloud and say whatever I was feeling at the time.  (Glad there were no human listeners because it was a long winded diatribe!)

As I was emptying myself of my thoughts, I ‘heard’ what I’d been missing…Angelic help!  Funny that me, who believes in Universe/God/Spirit/Angels had gotten so self-involved that I’d forgotten that I don’t have all of the answers, I really don’t control everything and that asking and receiving help is a good thing!  I also forgot how easy my life can be when I allow help and I don’t try to micromanage everything in my life.

So, I began talking with my Angels and God and anyone else who would deem me help-able.  I simply asked to receive help all day and even when I wasn’t asking for help to please help me since I’d forgotten how my life could be so much brighter.   Throughout the day, I tried to remember to ask and thank them for all the help that they were giving me.  I was sure that I was getting help even if I couldn’t see any differences in my life at the time.

When I ran into a string of red lights and then was stuck in traffic, I wondered what fate I’d just been saved from instead of cursing the stop and go driving…and the funny thing was that even though I was stuck in traffic, I arrived in plenty of time to my appointment.  How that worked, I”ll never understand…ahh…the power of Angels.

So my friends, TGIF today…and during your day’s journey, just look up when you can, ask for a little Angelic Help now and then and see what happens.

I wish you Angelic Help today!

 I’d love to hear how the Angels work with you as well…

Angelic Signs…

An Angelic Gift for You!

Driving home last night, I did what I had suggested you all do ~ I looked UP and checked out the clouds.  And lo and behold, right in front of me was the cloud which I featured in my card today…and as soon as I saw it, I knew what it was…a Heaven-sent Feather from my Angels.  Do you see it?  Or do you see something else?

I see a feather which according to other blogs, is a sign from your Angels…and because I had been asking for a sign so that I knew that they were around and ready to help me, I figure this was my sign…as big as a cloud, as high in the sky and honestly, it only lasted for a few minutes and it was gone.  If I hadn’t used my cell phone camera to snap the picture, this would not have been a post to share.

Do you believe in Angels?  Have you ever received a message? 

A knowing?  A sign? 

I’d love to hear about it if you have!

I am thankful to share my journey with you!

Happy Thursday!
