The Story of a Message

 

M3.jpg

I was inspired to write this story by a special blogger friend who has an amazing site you can find here: Dreamwalker’sSanctuary . She is a wonderful artist, writer, and enlightened soul and shares many pertinent and moving messages. But lately…some of those messages seem to have been getting “lost” in the great WordPress netherworld and have not reached where she meant them to go.

This is a tale about those messages. Blessings and Love to All!

I can feel the slight scratch of the pen to the paper, but it is not a painful scratch. It is an artful scratch as the holder of the pen forms the letters that form the words…that will be Me…The Message. I patiently watch and feel as the Enlightened Soul moves the pen swiftly across the page of parchment paper…swooshing lines into letters with such graceful movement. I sense the power of the Soul…it streams down the arm and to the pen, embodies and flows through the ink onto the page as it fashions the Powerful Message that is Me…that I will take to endless corners of the Universe.

I can see the reflection of the Enlightened Souls face on the parchment paper in the candle light. The face is serene, as if in rapture, as the flow of Spirit Energy moves through, bringing the wisdom and love of The Message forth…to be told, shared. Would that I…a mere Thought…could tell you of the deep abiding force of Love and Pure Compassion that this Soul feels as they write Me…for it is Powerful…and needs to be felt by All. So the Soul and I feel the importance of this task.

When I, The message, am finished…the Enlightened Soul will share me on a platform called a blog…and many will read Me and share Me. And sometimes…because I need to flow far and wide…I will look to disappear in thin air…and not get to where the Soul wanted me to go. But…I tell the Enlightened Soul here…that they are not to worry…for I, The Message, have a journey of my own…a Path not entirely known by the Soul…one I must and do and am glad to follow.

So…if it looks like A Message does not show up where we expect or think it should…never fear…for it has followed its path to exactly where it needed to be. For it has Energy of its own to share. As It Should Be.

“Getting Over The Hump Day” Humor

 

Hello My Lovely Readers! I know I have been rather absent these past couple of weeks…and I apologize for it.

So, here is this weeks post…and I will be posting a wee bit every week and then back to normal soon.

Weekend Inspiration ~ Hitting The Pause Button ~ Repost

 

P1.jpg

The dawn comes, splashing pink, orange, and purple streaks across the horizon. It is morning, and we are scrunched down in our beds amid the blankets and comfort, dreams frolicking in the misty gossamer threads of slumber. As images flash, the morning light deepens and throws fingers of dusty beams into the room, signaling the time to rise to the day. And then…Beep…Beep…Beep…Beep…Beep…Beep. A foreign sound breaks into our thoughts, insistent, demanding our attention…until we swing a hand over…and Hit The Pause Button.

P2.png

While this scenario may cause us to grumble as we struggle through the mists to come to wakefulness and start the day…there is something to be said about “Hitting The Pause Button”.

I have been talking about this frequently lately, so I thought I would share it here. It is a trick that is helping people to manage and get command of rampant thoughts and energy that have been difficult to manage or change as we spend this gargantuan effort to stay Balanced and Peaceful through these tough, confusing, and frightening times.

Many have told me how hard it has been to get their thoughts in control. Our minds can race and thoughts can take over, going in directions we do not wish them to, causing negative feelings and energy that is also difficult to release or manage. We can also tend to take this out on others in bursts of frustration and anger. So, it occurred to me that we need an “Internal Pause Button”. And that comes in the form of a “Pause Word”.

P3.jpg

When we catch ourselves running intense or negative dialogue in our minds, or crazy thoughts pop up and make us feel uncomfortable, or our patience runs thin and we feel like lashing out at someone or ourselves…we can hit the Pause Button with a Pause Word. Choose a word that is funny and causes a laugh, or a word that brings a smile to our lips. And when we feel our thoughts getting out of control and affecting our mood or causing an impulsive outburst…hit the Pause Word.

For me, it is Jello! Jello is wiggly and funny and cool and delicious. It reminds me of happier times as a child, making fun with friends and colorful, wiggly Jello. It makes me smile and giggle. And, it is random enough to catch my attention. So, when thoughts or stress creep in and I want to change them…I use my Pause Word and say Jello, Jello, Jello, Jello…over and over in my mind (much like the beep of a pause button on a clock), or out loud if I need to…and it breaks right into my thought pattern, stops it, and makes me laugh and smile…reminding me that I have control over my thoughts and I do not have to allow them to get to me, or influence me, or take over my mood.

P4.jpg

I have been giving this little trick to my clients this week, and they are having great success with it. So, give it a try. Once the train of thought that was making you feel bad is broken, it is easier to move your thoughts in a better direction. And it goes a long way in changing the course of your mood when your mind is saying something silly, insisting that you not take those thoughts too seriously…and move on to restore Balance and Peace in your mind with the prayer, process, or technique that works for you.

P6.jpg

Hitting the Pause Button on the clock in the morning gives us a few minutes to collect ourselves, fully waken, and prepare for rising to the day. Hitting the “Pause Word” in our minds also gives us those few minutes to take stock of our thoughts and change their direction…so that we can rise to the day and the challenges we face in a better light, a better mood, and with command of where our thoughts go and the energy they create within us and around us.

So have a good day….and Jello, Jello, Jello!

Blessings!

Thought For The Day ~ Trust In Trust ~ Repost

 

T2.jpg

“None of us knows what might happen even the next minute, yet still we go forward. Because we Trust.”  ~ Paul Coelho

T1.jpg

This quote spoke to me, in fact, it hit between the eyes, because it introduced a concept I had not before thought of. It is no secret to any of us, I think, that we all hold some form of Trust issues within us. We would all like to Trust life, people, things, words, ourselves…but in this fast paced and, lately, crazy world, putting our very valuable Trust into any of those things can be risky. And, we can all agree I think, that at one time (or many times), we have been burned and hurt by someone/thing we have Trusted. Each time that happens, it puts a chink in our Trust armor, and we become more and more hesitant to allow it.

T6.jpg

But…if this quote is true…and I believe deep within me it is…then we not only have the “conscious” Trust that we use very day and gauge our lives with…but we have a Natural innate Trust that is always present. Paul Coelho is right…we do not know what will happen in the next moment, or moment to moment, yet we carry on as if we know something we are not completely aware of knowing. That the next moment will come, and bring with it another small piece of our life puzzle that we snap into the picture, and then we move forward again, Trusting the next moment to be there. If we did not have this innate Trust…would we be able to navigate from one moment to the next…Naturally, in this way. Organically. It is our Nature to Trust in Life.

T3.jpg

So, what I am thinking is, we may not be as messed up about Trust as we think we are.

And, consider this…would it be more prudent to put our focus on Trusting our innate Trust…as opposed to focusing on who, what, when, where to Trust. Meaning, we just Trust our Trust to lead us in the right direction. Rather than looking outside of us for validation or permission to Trust, trying to ensure we won’t be hurt…which is near impossible…what if we turn that focus inward and…regardless of the person, circumstance, or thing we are considering to put our Trust in…that we simplyTrust Our Own Trust.

T7.png

This does not mean we will eliminate pain caused by Trust being broken over something…but it does, to me, give great comfort in that…no matter what happens, I will still have my Natural Trust intact…because I Trust in it. And that really can’t be broken, because it is in my hands and soul, not someone else’s. I haven’t given it away hoping it will be held dear and respected…it never leaves me. I just allow someone/thing else to see it and, hopefully, treat it well.

T8.jpg

I feel like I am hopelessly bereft of wording this properly. Wordsmith that I am, I stumble here to “write it right”. But I hope I have gotten the primary thought across. I Trust that you will understand my rambling…and hope I have conveyed it somewhat succinctly. If not, there is always another moment!

Blessings!

Monday Message ~ Faith In The Future ~ Repost

 

f1

Good Monday Morning! Once Again, I find myself compelled to re-post this message as so many people lately have been wondering about the current chaos and the future. In my stats, many of you have been accessing this post…so I am re-posting it again today for our Monday Message. May it give you something to take into your week that brings some peace of mind. Hang in there, stick together…and Shine Your Love and Light! Blessings!

~~~~~~

Today I felt the call to seek my “Gifts of Affirmations” cards by Amy Zerner and Monte Farber and see what message they have for us today. As always, the card I pulled speaks to us as we navigate through this awkward and difficult time. The card I pulled was…

Gift of The New:   “I Have Faith In The Future I Cannot See”

Message: “ Use this gift when you are worried or anxious. These feelings are usually caused by our attachment to either a particular outcome or to wanting to know exactly how things are going to turn out. We have the power to change our future. How many of our past worries never came to pass?”

F2.jpg

from The Desk of MarDrag:

With all that is going on in our lives and the world right now, it is hard not to worry and have anxiety. But consider that…so much of that worry is anticipation about what might happen and how we will be able to handle it. We can spin many tales in our minds and hearts about the “worst case scenario”, and then hold on to it, creating deep anxiety and stress. And sometimes, that energy helps to create what we are most afraid of, because that is what is foremost in our minds.

So, consider the act of staying in the moment and not projecting into the future. In this very moment, are you ok? Is what you are worrying about still just a thought, or has it happened? Is there still a chance a solution can be found? Have you worried in the past about something that never happened? Do you worry to the point of damaging your quality of life?

F4.jpg

There is a saying: For every problem there is an equal solution. A problem cannot exist without its counterpart, the solution, or then it would not be a problem. Believe that. Every problem absolutely has an equal solution. It is called the Law of Polarity. There is an opposite side to everything. If a problem exists…then the opposite of it, or solution, must also exist.

Now, focus on the Belief in the solution, instead of just focusing on the problem, and the channels open up so the solution can flow through. That is where the Power is. And in doing this, we eliminate all those moments, hours and days of anxiety and we retain some quality of life as we go through the difficulty.

F3.jpg

Just because we can’t see a solution in the moment…does not mean it is not there. And just because we have a problem(s) does not mean we have to allow it to color every area of our life, or define us, or feel bad about ourselves, or lose our daily dose of joy or peace. Do not give the problem that much Power. Keep your Power for the solution.

F7.png

Have Faith that the future you cannot see contains what you need and desire…and that energy will help to create those things rather than building on the problem. Have Faith that, just as you have done before, you will pass through your difficulty and thrive.

Blessings!
