Love and Acceptance

Image
I believe we receive exactly the messages and insights we need, exactly when we need them. But, you have to be open to receiving those messages!

Several times, in the last few weeks, I have received variants of the same basic insights.

Yesterday, I drew two cards from the Tosha Silver deck of "Change Me Prayers." I only meant to draw one. But something told me to take one more.

And here they are - Love and Acceptance.

May be I be changed into one who loves and accepts unconditionally all that I am given - in terms of challenges, opportunities, insights, gifts, blessings, relationships and burdens.

I know, it is easier said than done...

But the thing is, we are always wiser in hindsight. We can see things with a clarity we did not have when we were deep in a situation. Or, we might not ever see the experience for what it was - or what it gave birth to. More often than not, the choice is ours.

I know I will never be perfect. I know I will fail at times. But I choose to be as open as …

Let it Go and Let it Flow

Image
The words come to me, easily, and gracefully on a morning walk, as I reflect on challenges and unwanted changes - it is as if I can literally hear them whispered in my ear...


"Let it go and let it flow..."
I am invited to release all that does not serve. 

I am invited to change...

I am invited to grow and transition into a higher vibration...


"Let it go and let it flow..."
What is meant to be flows effortlessly and in my heart of hearts I know that all will unfold as it is meant to be...

We cannot go backwards in time - only forward - and yet I know that all that really matters is the present moment...


"Let go and let it flow..."
I step into the waters of grace and accept the invitation to all that is being offered even if I do not know where it will all lead me. I trust it will all unfold in Divine Order...


"Let it go and let if flow..."
An ocean of Love calls out to me and I choose to leave behind all that no longer serves...


"Let it go and let it fl…

In the Heart There is No Distance

Image
In the heart, there is no distance or time...

These words come to me on a walk mere days before I am off to see a friend move on to the next chapter of her life...

There is sadness on this walk, and a feeling of impending loss. But the angels whisper in my ear:

In the heart, there is no distance or time...

I drive into the mountains and country on a magnificent and glorious day - the air so crisp and clean, I can almost taste it, and there is not a cloud in the sky. My heart is overflowing with gratitude and appreciation for this sacred time with a mystical companion.

It is the Feast of St Julian of Norwich, whose sacred mantra has fed my soul for decades:

"All shall be well,
and all shall be well,
and all manner of thing shall be well."

My dear friend and soul companion and I, often ended our conversations with this gentle reminder through many challenges and trials and tribulations. Tonight, we will light tea candle holders with this beautiful prayer and affirmation.

I arrive to her…

Endings and Beginnings

I walk in the rain feeling sadness, at impending changes and endings - all the while knowing they lead to new beginnings...

I know intuitively, that the only constant in life is change...

That does not mean this is easy...

I give up opportunities that a decade ago, I would have done anything to have, but now they are not right for me - it is all a matter of timing...

There are other responsibilities now, and flexibility of time is of utmost importance...

I am well aware of the fact that I am not getting any younger, and am simply not up to speed in so many areas. Things that came easily would now require so much more work, and I no longer have the same energy I once did...

I feel lost - having given up so much - relationships, opportunities, perhaps even my place in this world...

So much has come and gone...

And yet, it is all in the natural order of things...

Today I walk in the rain - yesterday I walked in the intermittent sunshine - and yet the feeling in my heart was different. My heart wa…

You Are Not Alone

Image
Recently I reassured someone close to me, that every single person and family has their travails and sorrows. No one is without drama. But it is how we deal with it all that matters...

We are not alone in our experiences, and - we have a choice in how we decide to respond to any given situation, always...

And the thing is, we are ultimately always responsible for our choices.No one else is...

If truth be told, despite whatever we may think, I cannot change your life - and you cannot change my life...

We can however, help each other through transitions - if we are open to receiving what is being offered...

I shared some of this in my meditation group today. Everyone nodded and shared their own version of the same story...

We are not alone in this life. That is very comforting...

I believe we are supported in ways seen and unseen. I cannot imagine what and where I would be without this feeling and deep belief. All we have to do is slow down and listen. And ask for the what we need. The help ar…

Numbers Speak

Image
The last few months have been stressful and fraught with all sorts of tensions and drama. I suspect many can say that it has been the same for them.

I have always been interested in numerology, and I often see numerical patterns or sequences such as 11:11 or 12:12, 2:22, and so forth. Each one of these sequences has a unique meaning. 

But we also have special combinations of numbers that speak only to us, and that only we see and recognize.  Mine is 10:17. 

Often, throughout the course of the day, I might see different sequences several times. In fact, recently I wrote about seeing 11:11 on my dashboard as I was stopped at a red light.

And lately, I am seeing patterns constantly, because I have definitely needed more reassurance than most times.

So why are numbers important? 

They are a reminder that we are not alone. That our loved ones who have passed, or angels, or beings on the other side are looking out for us.

Recently, within a 12 hour period, I saw the same sequence twice. I just hap…

A Season for Changes

Image
It is a time for changes...
It is a time for different seasons...
The spring season is here, or at least it is trying to make its way into our hearts and lives...
I have spent months out of sorts for many reasons, but those reasons need not be explored any more than I have already have...
I hear the birds outside, happily singing, and reminding me that change is always possible...
I reflect over and over again on so many failings on my part, realizing that each and every one of them is an invitation to grow. These failings hold up the mirror to where I need to do the work. And with whom...
I begin again...
I put one foot in front of the other, and try to remember that this is a gift denied to many. This day is a luxury many do not have...
There is always room for change...
There is always room for growth...
It is always a time for change...

I decide to make small changes today - just simple design changes to my social media platforms. I wish to embody a change in energy, or at least in the desir…
