Hope in the New Year

hope

The sun rose on a new year, and my heart was filled with such hope.

Welcome 2015!  I lay to rest 2014 with a heavy heart.  I awaken with enthusiasm for the beauty, hope and love that a new year and a new chapter bring to my heart.

I do not believe in resolutions for they are too restrictive to me.  Instead, last year I chose a power word which coincidentally was LOVE ~ and I learned much about LOVE last year.  I have thought much about what my theme would be this year, trying out all new words in order to choose what I feel is right for my new life.

TAPESTRY:  To weave through my radiant days with loving joy the following attributes

Love

Empowerment

Health

Wealth

Happiness

Service

Hope

Kindness

Compassion

Gratitude

Faith

*Not necessarily in this order…

May 2015 be your year of wishes fulfilled with plenty of love, laughter, gratitude, health, wealth, hope and happiness.

Shine On!

Hurricanes, Earthquakes, Nor’Easters ~ Help!

I feel like Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz…truly…it’s been one thing after another here for this Jersey Gal.  Hurricane Sandy last week gave us downed trees, power outages, loss of food, loss of life ~ not to mention destruction of property in overwhelming proportions.  Sandy devastated the surrounding areas and many, including my sister and Mom are still without power.  Now I know that we can’t compare Sandy to Andrew or Katrina…but still…and she arrived on Monday October 29th.

One week later, on Monday November 5th, we had an earthquake in Ringwood, NJ  ~ just one week after Sandy hit…which personally I didn’t feel where I live.  A 2.0 magnitude which was reportedly heard as a loud boom for those awake at 1am in the morning.  For an area which is still power deprived, still cleaning up after Hurricane Sandy, I just can’t imagine the fright that the earthquake gave those who felt it.

And then, last night…just two days later, a Nor’Easter hit us.  A Nor’Easter is defined as a macro storm blowing in from the northeast.  Weathermen had been telling us that we would experience heavy rains and high winds in my area…instead, we received a heavy mantle of white snow to the tune of 5 inches at my home which was pretty to watch as it came down, but only if you were happily bundled in a warm home with heat and food.  Luckily for us, we have power, I had made homemade chicken soup and we had heat and each other.

It’s the simple things in life my friends.

Shelter, food and love and not necessarily in that order…but for now, yes, in that order.

So I’m asking for help here…not for myself but for those who need it…for those who’ve lost everything.  The Red Cross is a charitable, well-known, hard-working group who are here, providing water, shelter, clothing, blood for hospitals and funds for those who need it.  Perhaps you would like to help but don’t know what you can do…below please find some links ~ you can donate from your cell phone by texting ~ you can donate blood for those who need it ~ you can donate online if you choose.

If you can’t do any of the above, then I simply ask that you take a moment to give…

Thanks for the littlest to the biggest blessings that you have in your life. 

From shelter and food, to love and family…to health, to wealth and to an abundance of clean, fresh air that we breathe…to water, to blankets, to smiles and to heartfelt hugs which are abundant when you choose.

Be thankful, be generous…be blessed.

Thank you from my heart.

Free Chopra Creating Abundance and Musings from Misifusa

Register for Chopra 21 Day Meditation Challenge

Day 1 ~ “Today, I behold all the abundance that surrounds me.”
Day 2 ~ “I create my personal abundance from an infinite source.”
With Hurricane Sandy having blown through my life, 3 surgeries thus far and another coming up in December, plus my Dad’s passing and being responsible for closing out an almost 50 year law practice by myself…I’ve been a bit overwhelmed these days…and now there’s a Nor’Easter (another bad storm) on its way, ready to hit tomorrow.  UGH!  Double UGH!
So I am giving myself a pass today because I didn’t send this particular post out last week when I had planned to do it.  Without power, there wasn’t much I could do about it!  Perhaps there’s a reason for it…at least that’s the thought that I’m comforting myself with right now.
All is quiet in my home this morning.  I awoke with a migraine (darn weather changes) and still, I wanted to use the stillness and freshness of the morning to enjoy the meditations that Deepak Chopra has so generously given to all.  Today is Day 2 so I was behind already, but I am happy to report that I am all caught up.  Like one of my sons in school, I feel that relief that my homework is done for the day and I can move on.
But something interesting happened today when I did the 2 meditations.  I realized how stressed I am these days, how I’ve allowed my body to be encased in a hard pressured stressed feeling that is so tightly bound inside of me that I didn’t even realize that it existed.  It had become my normal after so much stress in my life.  And I can assure you, I am stressed with all of the responsibilities which have fallen onto my shoulders.  I am in charge of everything and everyone right now ~ dealing with a body which is enduring more than its share of surgeries and traumas.  I just keep pushing through to the next event, the next task and I’m not taking care of me.  I’m too wrapped up in what has to be done, wishing I could skirt some of the mess and just be taken care of instead of taking care of it all.
There’s food to be bought because of the power outage for 6 days, we lost everything in the refrigerators/freezers.  With the looming storm, I need to make sure that I replenish (but not too much) supplies.  Then there’s the fact that Mom hasn’t been to her house in a week so I need to drive her there to make sure that things are ok, plus I believe she wants some new clothes having only packed for a few days.  Boys still don’t have school and there’s the added burden of how to drive about 45 minutes away when there are still trees down, power out and gas rationing going on (which today’s not my day to fill up so I have to be careful).
I could go on and on and rehash all that is on my plate these days, but instead, I’ll leave you with what I learned.  I am planting the seeds of abundance in my life through Deepak’s meditations.  I am determined to unleash the synchronicity of blessings which are infinite and given to all.
I am blessed I know…but I am tired.  I long to rest, to quit worrying and to just ‘be’ at peace.  Perhaps with the start of the morning meditations, I can accomplish my goal.  I am handing it all over to God/Universe/Infinite Spirit…I am letting go of my control and just allowing life to be.
Hugs to all of you…
Enjoy Deepak’s gift!

Love and Money 7

Love

There’s so much to LOVE that I don’t know where to start…so I’m just giving you a little bit of Florence’s chapter on Love…

Excerpt from Chapter 7

Real love is selfless and free from fear. It pours itself out upon the object of its affection, without demanding any return. Its joy is in the joy of giving. Love is God in manifestation, and the strongest magnetic force in the universe. Pure, unselfish love draws to itself its own; it does not need to seek or demand. Scarcely anyone has the faintest conception of real love…”You can never receive what you have never given. Give a perfect love and you will receive a perfect love.

Then I told her of a brotherhood in India, who never said, “Good Morning” to each other. They used these words: “I salute the Divinity in you.” They saluted the divinity in every man, and in the wild animals in the jungle, and they were never harmed, for they saw only God in every living thing.

No man can attract money if he despises it. Many people are kept in poverty by saying: “Money means nothing to me, and I have a contempt for people who have it.”  Money is God in manifestation, as freedom from want and limitation, but it must be always kept in circulation and put to right uses. Hoarding and saving react with grim vengeance.  This does not mean that man should not have houses and lots, stocks and bonds, for “the barns of the righteous man shall be full.” It means man should not hoard even the principal, if an occasion arises, when money is necessary.  In letting it go out fearlessly and cheerfully he opens the way for more to come in, for God is man’s unfailing and inexhaustible supply.  This is the spiritual attitude towards money and the great Bank of the Universal never fails!

People are sometimes filled with remorse for having done someone an unkindness, perhaps years ago.  If the wrong cannot be righted, its effect can be neutralized by doing some one a kindness in the present.

So what do you think of this chapter on Love and Money?

Do you agree?  Want to read more?

The Law of Prosperity 2

The Law of Prosperity

Ready to explore chapter 2 a bit?  Hang on…you’re in for a bit of a ride!

You get what you believe you deserve.  How’s that for frustration?  Or have you learned to transcend the limits of your mind?  Well, Florence, yes, I think we’re now on a first name basis with the author of The Game of Life (click on the book and you can get it for your Kindle) has made the Law of Prosperity easy to understand and easy to apply to your life!

Here’s an excerpt from Chapter 2!

Getting into the spiritual swing of things is no easy matter for the average person. The adverse thoughts of doubt and fear surge from the subconscious. They are the “army of the aliens” which must be put to flight. This explains why it is so often, “darkest before the dawn.”

A big demonstration is usually preceded by tormenting thoughts.   Having made a statement of high spiritual truth one challenges the old beliefs in the subconscious, and “error is exposed” to be put out.  This is the time when one must make his affirmations of truth repeatedly, and rejoice and give thanks that he has already received. “Before ye call I shall answer.” This means that “every good and perfect gift” is already man’s awaiting his recognition.

Man can only receive what he sees himself receiving.   A keen observer of life once said, “no man can fail, if some one person sees him successful.” Such is the power of the vision, and many a great man has owed his success to a wife, or sister, or a friend who “believed in him” and held without wavering to the perfect pattern.

So…to all of my readers, I want you to know that I BELIEVE IN YOU! 

I will hold that vision of your perfection in my mind…

Now go forth and prosper!  You deserve it!  So enjoy!!

A Single Courageous Step…

Many of our fears are tissue-paper-thin,

and a single courageous step

would carry us clear through them. -Brendan Francis

Lately I haven’t been sleeping as well as I’d like.   I don’t know about you, but sometimes I go through periods of time where sleep evades me more often than not and right now I’ve not been sleeping well.  I wake up in the middle of the night, unable to fall back asleep because my mind continues to whir and mindless chatter of what I need to do and what needs to be done by others plagues me.  And then there is the fear of not getting everything done properly as I’m in charge of a lot these days…that fear alone can put me over the edge.   But what I’ve found is that the fears are usually paper thin and unfounded…but in the middle of the night, they feel like I’m carrying heavy bricks.

So what I’ve begun doing is imagining that each brick is one of my fears and I begin to walk ~ baby steps of course ~ and as I do, I let go of a brick with each step.  I simply drop it and allow my mind to tick it off the list that plagues me.  I drop the brick of named fear into the abyss below me and I imagine that it goes away into nothingness ~ that it simply evaporates.

Sometimes I imagine that Universe/God catches it and turns it into dust as well, but that’s only if simply dropping it doesn’t actually make it go away.  Sometimes those fear bricks have been known to not easily be released and that’s when my stepping out takes control because I’m still walking as I drop them and as I continue to walk, they are further away from me.

We all have fears which is sad because when we allow those fears to manifest, they can take over…which is why, I adore my baby steps!  Do you carry fears?  Do you sleep well?  Can you see that much of what we fear isn’t anything more than worry emphasized?

Join me in our stepping away from our fears and into the light…drop your fears, make them a kite and fly those paper-thin thoughts right out of your head today!  Let me know how it works for you ~ and what works for you!  I’d love to hear more options for my nightly episodes.

Happy Monday to you!  It’s the start of a new week!  Enjoy!!
