On A Quiet Sunday Morning

The presents of presence

It’s sunny today which automatically puts a smile on my face these days.  Although with the news being as it is, the sunny positivity amidst the unrest lately makes staying home even easier for me during the quarantine.  While I’m not one to ostrich myself and put my head in the sand instead of being aware of what’s going on, I find the negative forces overwhelming.  Are you feeling similarly?

I find that shining our heartlights is even more important these days.  Connecting with people who raise our loving vibrations is necessary to stay afloat during these uncertain times.  Reaching out helps each of us to continue to grow compassion, understanding and the light which is so needed in our world these days.

I am saddened by the news more often than not, since it seems that we are being divided in so many ways, instead of coming together as a world full of love.  Stress, fear and negativity spike often and it leaves me feeling drained more often than not, which is why I haven’t been posting as often.

I am grateful for the peace within me that radiates as the warm breeze flows outside my home.  Nature has been calling and Gaia’s love has helped to center me when trouble comes.  I’ve had many encounters lately with all different animals who share this parcel of land with me.  The three groundhogs, Clover the bunny, the hawks and birds, the heron who flies by occasionally and the chipmunks who race across the outdoor patio have brought much joy to my days with their antics.  Unfortunately, my camera is not as quick as they are, otherwise I’d share my experiences with you.  Then there are the deer and the nighttime bats who appear at dusk.  Do you ever take the time to notice all the creatures around you?

I hope my post finds you all healthy and happy and safe from the virus that is plaguing our planet.  I pray for health and peace for all of us.  I keep you all in my prayers.  Keep shining your heartlights as we need each other!

Shine On!

Rabbit Rabbit May 1st

Rabbit Rabbit may 1

Rabbit Rabbit! Happy May First Everyone!

This photo made me laugh since we’re in the midst of this quarantine and at some point, each of us has wanted to just get out of the house!  So, this May First I’m sending out healing that when we ease back into less restricted times, we will appreciate the little gifts of living and of course, The Presents of Presence.

Appreciate hugging family and friends when you see them.  Appreciate being able to take a drive in your car without threat of the virus.  Appreciate your health and freedom.  Appreciate all the little things that we may have taken for granted.

As a family, we have been blessed and I pray that you have as well.  So far, none of us have contracted the disease to our knowledge and we are hunkered down safe and sound in our home together.  We have bonded under the circumstances and been grateful for all of the blessings.

I pray that you and your family are healthy, happy and safe as well.  Please keep shining your heartlights and know that you are all in my prayers.

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!

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

We Help Each Other To Rise

wehelpeachothertorise

It’s Sunday.  All is quiet in my home.  I’m sitting here in my family room all cuddled up with a blanket on my legs relaxing with our kitties nearby.  I love the mornings when there’s that sense of peace and tranquility in our little world.  I’m grateful that we are healthy and safe at home with plenty of food choices.  I pray that my post finds you and your families healthy and happy as well.

Under this stress of Covid-19 uncertainty, we need to find the pockets of mindfulness and of gratitude in everyday living.  I am reminded, yet again, of the gift that this is for all of us.  While you may see the situation differently (because it is extraordinary and scary), there are blessings to be found in what WE as a world are enduring.  Fear and anxiety have ramped up severely as well as discontent with how things are being handled which I understand.  But it’s also a time to realize that we can only control ourselves and not circumstances which are beyond our control.  On a restful Sunday, this leads me to increasing my faith (and washing my hands!).

The blessings of being quarantined in home with our families expands the opportunity to bond with our loved ones, to go within to learn about ourselves and to re-evaluate what we feel is important in our lives.

I have enjoyed seeing is the return to simple gratitude and connections.  The choice to help others in a ‘we are all in this together’ mentality instead of fighting one another and making it all about ourselves and not about the world in which we live and its inhabitants is increasing.  Amen!

The returning to a WE ARE ONE is emerging again and gaining a stronghold in some circles of light.  I feel that we are here by choice to help each other rise up again, to increase gratitude, love, faith and kindness in our daily living even through we are to remain at home.  With technology connecting us in different ways, we can merge together virtually from our sofas and bond with others around the globe.

Instead of allowing fear to win, we choose love.  We can increase our health mentally, physically, and emotionally by working on ourselves during this time.  There are not a lot of distractions when one is not able to leave the home.  We now have time for all the nesting required that has gotten delayed by being able to run errands.  While some may find it boring to be at home, I do not.  I can find plenty to do to fill my time as can you.  Simple pleasures of family meals and talking with friends helps.  Reading and connecting with others in healing ways helps us all.  Sharing intuitive knowledge and being mindful helps us all to rise.  We are all beacons of light when we allow our souls to shine.

Getting back to basics of relating with everyday people and those in our families is key.  Talking honestly, listening with compassion and being our true selves will grow when we choose that path.  It is a choice to view this confinement as a time of growth for our world.  A time to look within and to see ourselves and our souls as the loving, shining heartlights that we are innately.

So on this quiet Sunday, allow me to pray for us all.  Join me if you will in a quiet prayer of your own for the coming together in love of our world.  Perhaps when you wash your hands, instead of singing, you might offer gratitude and prayer for yourself and others.

Together we help each other to rise.  Shine your heartlights dear friends.  Let our love shine in this darkness to heal one another and to remember who is important.  Enjoy The Presents of Presence!

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!

The Christmas Spirit Is In Action

christmas spirit

I adore the Christmas Spirit which comes during the holiday season!  It warms my heart when people are nicer, more thoughtful and loving.  I appreciate the extra kindness that arrives when generosity of spirit reigns.  How I wish we would continue the spirit of Christmas throughout the year!

Being kind doesn’t require anything spectacular.  It is simply being aware of those around us and being thoughtful of how others may be feeling.  There are many lonely souls who are quietly experiencing Christmas alone.  Neighbors, friends and even those who are in old age homes.  It doesn’t take much to reach out in a friendly manner to let them know that they are being thought of at Christmas.

A small card can make a difference, especially to those who have Alzheimer’s.  Even though they may not fully be aware that Christmas is upon us, to receive a card makes all the difference in the world.  I know that from experience.

Yesterday I brought cards to the Alzheimer’s home where my loved one resides.  As I am a frequent visitor, I bought a pack of Christmas cards and made one out for each of them.  It was a simple heartfelt gesture on my part, but the result made my heartlight grow tremendously.

As each lady received her card, she smiled.  While they recognize me, they do not remember my name, but they know I belong to my loved one who is one of their friends.  I had brought extra in case I had inadvertently forgotten someone and I was glad I did.  I ended up making a few extra cards right there when I realized I was to deliver a card to a lady who was seated with two others whom I really didn’t know and I wasn’t sure if they were aware.  But sure enough, they were.

Quickly, I went back and wrote the cards for the other two ladies and then delivered them.  I smiled and as I handed the newly written card to one woman in particular, her chin wobbled.  “I hope you didn’t think I’d forgotten you!  Here’s your Christmas card!  Merry Christmas!” I cheerily said to her.  She smiled at me and I walked back to my loved one’s table.

A few minutes later, this particular lady appeared, having summoned one of the workers to bring her to “that lady who gave her the card.”  As she sat in her wheelchair she was teary and said, “Thank you.  This was the nicest card ever.  It means a lot that you thought of me.”  That moment of a small action on my part touched her and it meant the world to me.  I reached out to hug her and I got teary too.

While some may think that just because those with Alzheimer’s don’t remember a lot, it doesn’t mean that a kind gesture doesn’t touch their hearts.  While I am not naive enough to think that those cards may not make it back to their rooms to sit on their dressers, it’s that moment that counts.  That moment of Christmas spirit, connection and as a result of a small action, ties two hearts in harmony.

So if you’re contemplating sending a small batch of cookies to an elderly neighbor or sending a card to someone, my advice is to do it.  There’s nothing like the magic of Christmas to make this world a better place.

Shine your heartlights my friends.  Together our lights ignite the sparkle that grows the Christmas and Hanukah spirit!

Shine On!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving Blessed

May our lives be full of both thanks and giving!

Good morning to you!  If you’re celebrating Thanksgiving today, please allow me to wish you many blessings on this day along with my gratitude for our friendship and the connections we have made.  Happy Friendsgiving to you!

It’s a quiet morning here.  My children are still sleeping in their beds and as usual, I’m sitting here sipping coffee, thinking about life and counting my blessings.  Especially as I grow older, I find myself appreciating The Presents of Presence more and taking the much needed time to remember and to be grateful for all that I have endured to make this moment in time more precious.

Life continues to change with every passing year.  We lose friends and family along the way as we grow older.  Situations change.  People change.  Life can seem more complicated.  But the simplicity of gratitude which is what Thanksgiving represents makes the now, this present moment, all the more real, for we never know what can change in our lives at a moment’s notice.

So, take this day and remember to:

Speak from your heart and say I love you more often.

Appreciate those with whom you have a lasting connection.

Be thankful for all blessings – big and small.

Shine your heartlights.

Connect with kindness.

Be grateful for all of the kindness you’ve received.

Make sweet memories, for they are your legacy.

Enjoy this day that you’ve been given.

Shine On!

World Kindness Day Inspiration

World Kindness Day

Kindness has a beautiful way of reaching down into a weary heart and making it shine like the rising sun.

~ Unknown

World Kindness Day, the purpose of which is to highlight good deeds in the community, focusing on positive power and the common thread of kindness that binds us was the other day.  I’m sorry I missed it as it was celebrated on November 13th.  In fact, it happens on that day every year and began back in 1998!

There are a multitude of quotes about kindness, but the one above has a special meaning for me for I have known kindness in my life that has unexpectedly lifted me up when I needed help.  I believe that’s the importance of kindness.  Do you feel the same way?

Kindness counts in so many ways and one never knows how even a smile can change another person’s attitude or even life!  So please, remember to be kind!  Shine your heartlights with the warmth of kindness!

Shine On!

Happy Sunday Soul Day!

Happy Sunday Soul Day

I awoke this morning, reminded that I am a soul having a human experience here on Earth.  While I have known this, it was important that I share it with you.  For sometimes, I think we forget who we are when we are mired in the human experience.

As humans we fret (worry) and we sink to those emotional levels of low vibrations.  We grieve.  We feel disappointment.  We get caught up in the story in our heads of what is going on here on Earth.  The human story becomes all encompassing and we forget temporarily who we are because the human experience is so overwhelming at times.  Every little nit-picking bump in the road of life becomes disastrous and bigger than it really is because we are seeing it from the human viewpoint and not from the soul.

I believe we are born as a soul to have a human experience and dare I say, the life lessons we endure here are meant to empower us as we break down the limiting human beliefs we accumulate over time and through various experiences from childhood through adulthood.  When we concentrate on the sometimes harrowing atrocities that we endure, our focus is not on the soul side, but the human.

The human experience allows us to learn life lessons such as forgiveness, trust and being an observer during the life’s harder times.  Our soul is here to witness, to nurture and to guide our human experience when we allow the innate flow of knowledge to calm us, to enlighten us and to lovingly support us.  Our faith and God allow us to observe the soul connection in all with whom we engage.  We can be with the soul in others even when their human reactions are difficult to bear.

We are all one here – a collection of souls here on Earth having a human experience.  Like busy atoms, we bump into each other, perhaps connect for awhile, only to be released.  We may bump on friendly terms or not so friendly terms.  We may merge with others for a time, only to realize that we are not on the same path anymore and thus, we disengage.  But the connections and disconnections are here for learning the life lessons and for training our human side to expand through experiences and wisdom.

Once we realize our soul connection with our human and the soul connections with other souls outside of our own, an inner peace emerges with faith, love and wisdom.  We realize and forgive because we understand that our human experience is prone to making mistakes in order to learn and we are willing to stand in peace without judgement on others.  We are given the insight in observance of the other soul’s human and we are given the ability to see beyond the fractured being through enlightenment.

I am not implying we are two people inside each person.  Our human side and our soul are connected.  Perhaps we forget when we are born as a human and one of our jobs here is to remember that we are a part of a bigger plan and an expansive source as souls.  Once one sparks that connection between the human and soul of ourselves, we cannot forget from whence we came.  Indeed, I have found that avenues of life learning lessons come into play like a growth spurt with the added caveat of the soul now connected and helping our human side to understand the bigger picture here.  That helps to answer the “why” we have chosen to have these human experiences!

I have always loved the book by Neale Donald Walsch called, The Little Soul In The Sun for it aptly makes sense to me in explaining why many of us endure life’s challenges.  Our soul longed to experience the human experience and to learn through it.

If you feel different than others when you are in the midst of a not-so-savory experience, connect with your soul and allow wisdom to enlighten you.  You are not alone as you walk through this lifetime.  Once we realize that we are not alone, that we are Divinely supported and loved, experiences do not take on the magnitude of pain nor error.  Instead, it is replaced with forgiveness, mercy, faith, love and connections.

I am not sure if I have explained myself well today or even after reading thus far, you understand my point.  Sometimes I feel as if I know what I want to say, but it gets lost in translation unless the reader and I are on the same wavelength.

Please let me know if you have a similar knowing inside.  I have had the knowing my whole life, but it was blocked for years due to the human experiences I endured.  In this precious moment, the connection is strengthening and for that reason, I wanted to share it with you.

On this lovely Sunday Soul Day, please know that I am thinking of you, wherever you are and sending my heartlight to shine to yours in connection.  May you feel the abundance of love and light in your heart.

Shine On!
