Universal Crumbs

universalcrumbs

Sometimes I think the Universe drops crumbs in order to help us through this lifetime.  Lately, much synchronicity has occurred in my life.  When I viewed the events as separate, there was no obvious correlation.   But when I strung them together in the path of my life in the last few days, they fit together like perfect puzzle pieces!

It’s a wonderful feeling to know that all we need to do is to be wide awake and aware of our days and nights.  To notice is to put together the puzzle pieces and watch as our lives unfold with support, positivity and love from God and the Universe.

Notice what happens all around you!  You think of someone and poof! they call you!  You go out of your routine and poof! you find out you missed an accident!  You know what I mean, don’t you?  The Universe simply drops breadcrumbs of experiences into your path to help you along the way.  It brings to mind the Law of Attraction at work!

There are many examples that illustrate the bread crumbs that we pick up to fortify ourselves along the path of our lifetimes.  For example, yesterday I had to pick up shampoo for the children, so instead of going to the grocery store, I stopped at Rite Aid.  While walking around, I saw a display for some new nail polish for Fall.  While it’s not my usual shade (I wear pink/red/wine), this one caught my eye.  It’s Essie Brand – name is As If!  Anyway, it’s a shade of blue that just made me happy, so I bought it!  As I was painting my nails last night, I watched a movie called The Last Keepers which you can watch for free with Amazon Prime (click here!)   I loved the fact that the characters’ story began in Fall with a celebration of the Autumn Solstice.  Watching the movie reminded me of a book I put down awhile ago that I was aching to pick up when I felt moved to read again and voila!  Last night before bed, I knew that I would be reading another chapter today – which I did!  Here’s the link to the book in case you are interested.

After reading the book this morning over coffee, I was thinking about a blogger friend of mine who would like the book.  Poof!  Out of the blue (pun intended), she called me and we were able to talk about it!  One thing led to another and we caught up on our lives and even had a little healing moment between us.  It was fabulous!  It even led to a mutual friend of ours getting a much needed message that helped her as well!

So what’s my point?  When I string together all the coincidences, I get a tapestry of life that leads me in the right direction.  Has this ever happened to you?

Remember to Say Thank You

thankyou

Life flows when we give and when we accept the blessings given to us.  Expressing gratitude is not difficult, but certainly is necessary.  Being appreciative for the blessings bestowed on us, little or big, requires being in a place of gratitude.  For when we ‘count our blessings’ we invite more blessings because we are showing appreciation.

Lately, I’ve been expressing my gratitude to God and to the Universe for the blessings which have been given to me.  It seems that the more I thank God and the Universe for even the simplest of gifts, the more blessings flow to me.  It’s that Law of Attraction mentality I think.  Have you heard of Law of Attraction?  I’ve written many posts on it before in my blog.  Just search Law of Attraction and surely you’ll find more about it here.

I think in our busy lives we forget to be grateful for the simplest things which we take for granted.  We become disconnected with the gifts we receive in our daily life.  Just having shelter, food, health, love and income, bare minimums is a blessing that we forget to acknowledge for there are many who lack these minimums.  Instead I think sometimes we are focused on what we don’t have or what we want, instead of what we currently have.  It’s a different way of thinking for some, but it’s a choice in how you look at it.

Is that glass half full or half empty for you?

Or are you just grateful to have the glass that can be refilled?

That’s how life is – you choose how you look at things and you can choose again when you learn more about life.  That’s the great part of life lessons!  We learn and grow at different speeds, but as we connect, we learn more because we share our lessons with those who are interested in connecting.

I have learned so much from blogging friendships that we’ve made and from friends who have taken the time to share what they have learned from life lessons.  My heartfelt thanks to all of you!  I hope that in some way, I have helped you as well.

The Present Moment

pinkflower

With the uncertainty of life, we let go when we have exhausted all means of control.  Sometimes it takes us longer to finally come to the conclusion that there are simply parts of life that we must allow for we cannot stop them.  For a planner like me, it’s always felt unacceptable.  Searching my brain, I would try to come up with endless ways to make whatever situation better for me, my family, my friends ~ relentlessly trying to improve a situation that I found unacceptable because it was causing someone else or me pain.

But there are times now, after sleepless nights of fret, worry and planning, that I am learning, albeit slowly, to let go and to allow God and the Universe to proceed.  What I’ve learned in the wee hours of the morning is to go with the flow, release, let the river take its course and have faith that as long as I can put my head on the pillow in peace, knowing I have done all with a loving heart, there is nothing more I can do.

However, it’s hard ~ this letting go.  So I am learning to let go and let God ~ and let Him in.

I think it’s human nature to believe we’ve got this, we can figure it out and make it work.  But we forget that there is God, the Universe and the Laws of Attraction who also carry us when we allow them to work their ‘magic’ as well.

Being in the present moment is a life lesson worth learning for me.  I am watching my Mom struggle with Alzheimer’s and being in the present moment with her.  Sometimes her present moment isn’t ‘reality’ but wherever her brain is at the time.  So to honor her, we gather in her present moment and support her, enjoying whatever gifts we can.

It’s a shift of thinking that has taken me a long time to accept and to process in my own brain.  However, love is accepting and above all, I love my Mom.  So I accept where she is at any given moment.  I’ve come a long way baby, but I still have much to learn.

Isn’t that the way life school is anyway?  Learn, practice and love?

Do You Pray?

prayers

“All I know is that when I pray,

coincidences happen;

and when I don’t pray,

they don’t happen.”

– Dan Hayes

Power of Prayer

36596_Prayer does not change God, but it changes him who prays.

~ Soren Kierkegaard

I admit, I used to pray daily.  I found solace in saying prayers and even made up my own which I said everyday.  I’ve used affirmations as well which I think are like small prayers to the Divine.  But somehow I got too busy for the practice of being present and simply allowing my mind to feel, to pray and to just be.  I’ve allowed anxiety and trying to control everything to overtake me.  The hustle and bustle of the day, accompanied by having been put in charge of family matters since my Dad passed has put much pressure on me.  And I even believe that I am pretty present in my life, but the more I’ve been thinking about it, the more I’m realizing that I’ve lost touch with that sacred part of me and I want it back.  I want the safety of allowing life to unfold without the intensity of trying to control and keep tabs on everyone and everything.  I long to allow others to help themselves or at least have the freedom to choose what they want without feeling the intense responsibility of making sure that ‘all my ducks are in a row’ and that everyone has what they need/want at all times.   Because, I’ve put them all first and in the process, I realize, I’ve lost my own self.

Does this make sense to you?  I’m not particularly religious, but I am spiritual.  Much to the chagrin of some, I believe what I believe in my heart and I don’t always feel the need to be blatant about what I feel in my heart.  I’ve taught my children the power of prayer, the grace of God and how to live a good life.  But I don’t feel the need to pound the pulpit nor attend a revival in order to make it so in my life.

But there’s something magical about the sincerity of prayer, about putting to words our supplications and our gratitude for the gifts we have been blessed with in our lives.  Simply feeling gratitude for the present moment of being alive is sometimes all that’s needed to get our minds back on track.  It’s in that morning dew that I find that solace and peacefulness within my heart.  Perhaps tomorrow I’ll get up a few minutes earlier to commune with Mother Nature and with Infinite Spirit/Divine/God/ Source/my inner power.  Yes, I think I will do just that and see how my life evolves again.

I’m striving for peace in all I do.

It’s time for a change.  Do you want to join me?

A Secret to Grasp

rumi

When I run after what I think I want,
my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety;
if I sit in my own place of patience,
what I need flows to me, and without pain.
From this I understand that what I want also wants me,
is looking for me and attracting me.
There is a great secret here for anyone who can grasp it.
~Rumi

So, with that information, my plan this week is to ‘sit in my own place of patience’ and allow the flow of goodness to come to me, be attracted to me and to envelope me with its stillness and wisdom.  Opportunities flow for us all.  Let us…

How Do You Look at Your Life?

76041477_Photo Credit ~ SBGAngel ~ Thank you!

“If you look at what you have in life, you’ll always have more.

If you look at what you don’t have in life, you’ll never have enough.”
Oprah Winfrey

Have you ever read The Secret or learned about the Laws of Attraction?  Have you ever read The Game of Life and How to Play It?  Surely there are more books which explain these topics, but in a nutshell, here’s the message:

“What you concentrate on, grows.” ~ Y.D.

So as you go about your day today, concentrate on the good, the blessings, the happy moments.  Times may feel difficult for you and there may be sadness as well ~ honor those feelings and then get back on the red carpet of your life.  You know, most mornings, I imagine that there’s a red carpet laid out in front of me and all I have to do is to follow it ~ kinda like the yellow brick road that Dorothy followed home.  My job is to simply stay on my path and keep trying to inspire, to do good, to help others (and myself) and to be the best person I can be.  When I break it down to that simplicity (stay on the red carpet), things go my way, I can get a lot done and I feel like I”m serving my purpose.

What about you?  What’s your secret to looking at your life?
