Trust More! Fret Less!

Trust more! Fret Less! This is the message I received today. Have you ever noticed how the things you worry about the most are almost always, things that never happen? We know as the result of many studies and stories, that setting an intention for our day, a meeting, an outcome, often affects the end result in a positive way. If this is so, what would it be like if we intended, or imagined more positive outcomes than negative ones? The world and our lives would be vastly different! I had scheduled a pick up today of donations that mostly consisted of electronic equipment. Thunderstorms had been predicted for later in the day. I got up early, put my stuff out, and rather than worry, I gave intent that all would work out. Then, I went out to run errands and go to the grocery store. When I came back, everything had been picked up! It was sunny and warm! Shortly after returning home, workers came by to do maintenance on the fire hydrant. Soon it was spewing water out all

A Benevolent Universe

Three times today, I receive the same message: "I live in a benevolent universe." The first time, I receive it in my morning meditation. I am so taken with it, that I repeat this affirmation out loud several times: "I live in a benevolent universe." The second time, it comes in a line from today's entry in the daybook, " Every Day Spirit: A Daybook of Wisdom Joy and Peace ." I can tell you - that when I read this sentence, it IMMEDIATELY caught my attention. Lately, my days have been filled with wonderful synchronicities and messages, and I strive to remain open to them. The third message arrived as I was nearing the conclusion of my morning walk by a wooded field. A doe and two fawns crossed my path. This seems to be happening regularly in this particular spot. But today, they lingered and sized me up. Finally, they all  pranced back into the woods. As I walked over the spot where they had initially gathered, I noticed one of the faw

Be Safe! Stay Safe!

In these tumultuous times that we find ourselves in, I've been thinking a lot about safety. Feeling safe, or being safe, is more than the obvious - that is to say - being safe from violent actions or situations. It also includes safety in words, thoughts, attitudes, and conditions. Let me explain.  If I am in an environment where negative conversation and attitudes are constantly on display, I don't feel safe to be myself, or reveal who I really am. So, I become diminished in terms of the possibilities that are at my disposal, and that are available for others as well. And often, negative words and thoughts can get out of control and degenerate into something worse. I believe in the power of words. I believe in the power of positive prayers and thoughts and their ability to shift or change, or even heal a situation. Why? Because I have seen this happen again and again. In these times, I often feel anxious and unsettled because of what I hear or read in the media, or

More 11 and 111 Number Blessings

Recently, I shared in a blog entry, how on several occasions I happened to have 11 emails in my inbox at 11:11 am. Well, I am both pleased and blessed to report that these wonderful occurrences continue! Several times a day I clean out my inbox (I REALLY am quite diligent about this task!) And guess what? I end up with 11 emails. This happens over and over again! Several times a day - day after day - and now week after week! I casually glance at the time - and yes - you guessed it - it is 11:11! I look at the dashboard on my car, and I notice I have 111 miles left on my current tank of gas. The clock might read 1:11 PM. And so it goes! All these wonderful reminders that I am not alone, and neither are you! Pay attention to all the wonderful synchronicities in your life and to the many signs you are receiving. Yours will probably be very different from mine, but that does not matter. The number 111 is considered to be an angel number and it is a reminder that we are

You Don't Know What You Don't Know

You don't know what you don't know. Be gentle with yourself. We think we know everything. I know I do. We think we know what is happening.  We think we know what other people are thinking. And what they are feeling. We think that that the way we interpret reality is the correct version of current affairs. But really, this only brings to the forefront, our lack of wisdom and knowledge. There is so much we don't know. We don't know the pain people carry within. Recently, several well known celebrities took their lives, and many, on social media, posted messages and phone numbers for those suffering to reach out. But here's the thing. When you are in such deep pain, you hide it well. And you don't reach out. I know this, because I have struggled with depression and many around me had no idea. You don't often know what you think you know. About others, and yourself as well. Sometimes, you are very surprised to realized you were completely mi
