It’s Fate


“Until you make the unconscious conscious,

it will direct your life

and you will call it fate.”

~ Carl Jung

I have a friend who is studying to be a hypnotherapist.  I’ve never known anyone who is a hypnotherapist, nor have I gone to see one.  It’s been interesting to me as she has hours and hours of classes and is learning so much new information which just boggles my own mind.  When she shares an interesting tidbit she learns from her class, many times I’m simply speechless for it takes me a few minutes to wrap my thoughts around what she’s just learned.  Of course, she probably simplifies it for me which makes it easier for me to digest.  But all in all, I think that our minds are so very powerful and at work in our lives 24/7 to degrees we laypeople have never even imagined.

So when this quote popped up in my life today, I knew I had to share it.  For how many times have you just decided ‘it was fate’ that you met your loved one at the grocery store, or ‘fate’ that brought you and a friend somewhere at the same time, or ‘fate’ that you and your first boyfriend found each other again on Facebook?

Fate Fate Fate

(said like Marsha Marsha Marsha ~ from The Brady Bunch)

So…today I’m asking you…

Do you believe in fate?

Have you ever seen a hypnotherapist or know someone who has?

What do you think of Carl Jung’s quote?

I’m eager to learn more so please share with me!

Shine On!



Those who bring sunshine into the lives of others,

Cannot keep it from themselves. -James M. Barrie

Stevie Wonder, Ricky Nelson, John Denver, The Beatles, Bill Withers, The Police, Katrina and the Waves, The Grateful Dead and even the Brady Bunch have sung about sunshine…among countless others whom I found when I googled songs about sunshine…there were more than 100 listed!

I found them on this website ~ if you’re interested.


I find it so fascinating that those who radiate sunshine in their lives, bring so much joy to themselves and to others simply by being themselves.  I am so grateful that I was able to lunch with my longtime friend BAngel who was in town for a few days.  As we chatted throughout our 3 hour lunch, I was constantly reminded of her sunshine (hence the post) which radiates from her at all times.  It is completely without her knowing what a blessing she is to all whom she comes into contact with at any moment of any day.  It is so much fun to watch others light up when she meets them ~ and it is delightful to see that she has no idea of the powerful light which emanates from her ~ human sunshine as it were.

I strive for that inner beauty as well…I aspire to be that beacon of hope, that ray of sunshine in the lives of others.  I want to make this world a better place by inspiring others to smile, to hope, to persevere, to take baby steps, to connect with each other and to enjoy the Presents of Presence.

 May the Sunshine warm your day today ~ and the moonlight light your path at night.

Have a blessed day!
