Doreen Virtue: 8.26.2017

This looks like the topic of the week.   I was meditating and visualizing this morning, and I couldn’t get the topic to disappear.   So it’s been percolating for at least a day.   I am not sure why it’s there, because she wasn’t some one I followed much.  I did not buy many of her products, but I was aware of her products, even looked through some of the decks.  Her stuff did call to me in the “ooo…shiny” way.  But most of  time I asked if this was for me, the answer was no.  The products that I did buy, once they served what I needed them for, I recycled them back into a bookstore.   So I was rather struck as to why she was percolating in my brain today.

One of my teachers mentioned that my empathy is coming online more and more, and that may be why she was so present for me this morning.   There are a great deal of people upset with her decision to convert to Christianity full on.   I can even understand it, having lived in the bible thumper belt for 13 years.   But …  this is her choice.   It’s not mine.  It’s not yours.  It’s not anyone Else’s choice, but hers.  And she has made it.

However her choice touches so many people.  People who have looked up to her.  People who have depended on her.  People who have learned from her teachings.  People who loved her work.  Most of them are feeling a sense of loss and betrayal.  To have some one that has helped them see a different way, to have seemingly turned her back on them, to make a choice for her.  To follow her truth.  There is this sense of loss, anger, betrayal from her students, fellow healers, and customers.

What struck me about her video that she recently did, she doesn’t say that she condemns divination, fortune telling, and sorcery.  She states that the bible forbids them.   That if she gets the message that she should discontinue what she is doing, she will.  That it’s the way she was using her gifts that was the problem.   Now, from other blogs and videos, I understand that some earlier posts or videos may have mentioned that people who had certain products should burn them, because they have dark energy about them.  But in this video she was very careful not to say something in that nature.   She was very careful to have her bible, and reference quotes that had bearing on what she was saying.  She was very careful not to condemn people in this video.

I guess the moral of the story and experience, is that this in itself is a teaching moment.    What you take away from this lesson is up to you.  Where you take it, is up to you.  Follow your own path.  Follow your own truth.  Try to make sure that the people you follow, are in line with the truth you are trying to live or experience.  Even then that may not be enough, because them may change.

Ultimately, this is your life.  This is a life you chose to live in this time, in these times, at this time, and where you go is your choice.

Wow: 7/28/2017

So this morning I went off to work, and I was feeling pretty meh.  I have been doing my SAVERS from the Miracle Morning Book for some time, and this morning I hadn’t done the A part of Savers.   Once I started doing them in my head, the attitude changed drastically, and I was better throughout my shift of work.   But there are a couple other things that are going through my mind.

Also realizing that I am indeed leaving the Massage industry for a couple years, and realizing that I am ready to let it go, was probably part of the my MEH attitude this morning.  I am also getting the feeling that I should start packing, since I am planning on moving within the upcoming year.  Not only that but intending to be moved by this time (July 2018) next year.   These are major decisions for me.  One I’ve worked in Massage for over 7 years, and this is the first time I will be moving out and living on my own.

For me it’s more than just moving out and living on my own.  It’s about owning my own power, standing in my own power, and taking control of my life.   As much as I would like to take some one with me, to be my buddy and pal, this is a journey I have to do on my own.   And as much as having a buddy and pal with me, it’s holding me back.  It’s holding me back, because I am usually waiting for them to catch up, or I am trying to help them rise up, and greet their potential.  Because in them I see greatness, and I don’t understand sometimes, that my journey and their journey are not the same.  They need to make their own way, in their own time.

So Wow, indeed.

Be the Change: 02.16.2017

Be the change that you wish to see in the world. If something isn’t getting done that you think should be done, be that change. Create that niche that fills in that Gap. You are a powerful being. You have your own power, and you can use it to make great wonderful change.

You can sit on that couch, and watch the news, but what does it accomplish? You can talk to your friends, be angry, be hurtful, be fearful, and be hateful, but who benefits from these emotions? What can you accomplish with these emotions? You can take to the streets and show the world that you’re unhappy. But what does it accomplish?

I talked with a young woman this week. She holds her anger, her fear, and holds her frustration, and it affects her body. She says the white man is a problem. She says that this country is lost. She says that this country is not worth the effort. She holds her anger, and her fear, and her hate for that which she does not understand. Is there room for love with all of that floating on?

We are beautiful beings. We have beautiful souls. Each and every one of us has a soul. Each and every one of us has lessons that we have to learn, that we agreed to learn when we came to this life. Each and every one of us, regardless of whether or not we believe, is a child of the Divine. We have a piece of the Divine in each and every one of us. We have the power to change the world. But in order to change the world, we have to change ourselves. And the rest of the world will follow. 

But to do that requires a choice. It requires you to take a stand.  To take a stand not in Anger, not in fear, and not hate. Let’s take a stand in love,  in joy, in celebration of who you are. In celebration of what you hope to accomplish. Because if you are not celebrating what you’re hoping to accomplish, what are you doing it for?

Change is happening. Change is happening all around us. Change is happening on a metaphysical level. Change is happening within our political structure. Change happening within our governments. Change is happening in the very nature of itself. How are you adapting to that change? How are you accomplishing adapting to that change? Are you evolving with that change? Or are you stuck in the frustration against that change? 

All it requires is a choice, follow through, and dedication. The world is changing, you can change with it, or be rolled over. Because whether or not you’re ready for it, it’s coming. You can participate, you can lead, or you can stand aside, or you can be run over. But it’s up to you. 

What is your choice?

I am Note: 02/12/2017

I am not my skin color.

I am not my eye color.

I am not my body shape.

I am not my spirituality or religion.

I am not my orientation.

I am not any of the things that would mark me different.

It doesn’t matter if you are White, Black, Asian, Indian, Native, Mixed, Islander, etc.

It doesn’t matter  if you have brown, blue, green, or hazel eyes.

It doesn’t matter if you are tall, round, short, skinny, pear, triangle, or oval shaped.

It doesn’t matter if you are Christian, Muslim, Wiccan, Pagan, Hindu, etc.

It doesn’t matter if you are Straight, Bi, Lesbian, Gay or Ambiguous.

You are not the sum of what makes you different.

You are the sum of what makes you, YOU.

I am Human.

I am soul.

Regardless of how you feel about some one, remember whether they are the most prejudicial person on the planet or an innocent baby, they have a soul.

They may not be learning the same lessons you are meant to, but they have lessons to learn too.

Your lesson may just be in part to accept the things and people you cannot change, and release them in love.

The World may be insane, but YOUR World does not need to be, unless you let it be.

Things I enjoy: 02/10/2017

I enjoy having a clean sink in the morning.  It makes me comfortable, because it’s not something waiting to get done.

I enjoy cleaning once a week.  It makes my home healthier by decreasing the cat fur and dander, and allows me to freak the cats out a little.

I enjoy taking random photographs and sharing them.  I enjoy this because of the many likes and comments on them.  It’s like having little windows of a moment in time of random things and creatures in my life.

I enjoy keeping track.  This allows me to see how much progress has been made, and what has been done recently, or needs to be done.

I enjoy creating schedules.  I never really thought about it, honestly I thought people who had schedules were nuts.  Because WHY?  But it actually pays to have at least the to do list or/and the schedule/goals written.

I enjoy purging.  I’ve been purging in little and big ways for years.  Now I have a goal and a reason.  Knowing that, helps me work towards that goal going forward.  When I’m done purging, I’m hoping that I’ll have what is important to me, and holds meaning in my space and with my eventual partner.

I enjoy quiet now, almost as much as music.  Each offers its own peace.

I enjoy meal replacement shakes.  It makes things easy and fast and nutritious.  And it ensures that I get 2 meals a day easily.   I enjoy making a least one meal.

I enjoy flannel.  Nice soft warm flannel.

I enjoy my home.  I love the location.  I love the environment.  I enjoy the aloneness.

But I am ready for a change.

Unconditional Love: 2.7.2017

What would happen, if we saw everything with unconditional love?  What would happen, if we acted with unconditional love? What would happen, if instead of individual issues or causes, we just took up the mantel of unconditional love? Unconditional for each other, for our homes, for our countries and others, and for our Earth?

What if we saw each other with unconditional love?  What if we saw each other not by color, or class, or religion, or ethnicity, or profession?  What would happen? What would happen, if we saw, felt, and acted with unconditional love in all things?  Would it make a difference what the cause was? 

What would happen?  What type of legislation would we see?  What type of care of our people would we see? What type of action would we have? 

What type of World would we live, if we acted out of love and compassion towards ourselves, each other, and our environment? If we worried not of the color of our skin, the religion that we follow, the class that we are in, the education we have had, or the profession we work?  

Unconditional love could unite all under one banner, and with it, we could move mountains. Because it wouldn’t matter the cause, would it?

Random thought thread of a waking mind.
