You know- with all what’s going on in the world at this time we can easily not remember how powerful and nurturing a cleansing breath can be for our mind, body and spirit. We can forget to take the time to practice a long, slow, deep breath that is essential to our well being.
It is so important for us to remember that our mind/thoughts follow the breath/spirit, and how our bodies/behaviors follow our mind/thoughts.
In other words, when we are fully aware of the rhythm or timing of our breathing we can witness the speed or pace of our thoughts. And it is from the clarity or lack of clarity of our thoughts that will dictate our words, actions and behaviors.
Below are questions that will invite you into the inner landscapes of your total being. However, before you dive into your story line, take the time to view the above breathing video.
Prayerfully the video will place you in a space where you can answer the questions from your heart center, and not just from your emotional center.
Is it challenging for you to embrace the unknown?
Why is it challenging for you to embrace the unknown?
Why is it not challenging for you to embrace the unknown?
What are the top three things that are preventing you from expanding your thoughts or views on the present situations?
What are the top three things that provide you with the ability to expand your thoughts or views on the present situations?
Do you feel the current situations are opening you up to be more aware of the evolution of your thoughts and behaviors?
Do you feel that at the end of these experiences and present situations you will be able or willing to enjoy your life again for the good of all?
Have you notice if the state of the present situations deepened your sleep walking, or have you notice that you are more awakened to all your senses, and the power of you breath/ spirit?
Until the next time, remember that our breathing is the key for embracing, expanding, evolving, and enjoying life the way it is meant to be lived…for all.
I feel like I miss you already. I wonder; how do I miss you if I haven’t even spoken or opened myself up to your presence this morning?
Oh! I know. What I’m really missing are my old friends Yesterday and Yesteryears. I am missing all my other friends named Past dreams, Past moments, and Missed moments.
I am also missing What was, What could, What should, and my most recent friend named How It Used To Be.
If I keep my thoughts on all my old friends I’ll be missing you twice my new friend. I will miss you on this day and then again on tomorrow.
Today, I thank you Girl, for being my new friend. I thank you for reminding me to welcome your presence throughout this day. For acknowledging you, I am opening myself up to all the gifts, miracles, and blessings right before my eyes.
I now know that I don’t have to miss you I just have to recognize and accept you. Then I am in the presence of a whole new world and all its wonders. Continue reading “A Letter To My New Friend Her Name Is Today”
I believe there’s nothing new under the moon that haven’t happened before. It may be different times, different places, and different people, but the events and experiences are pretty much the same.
So, as the world turns, let us be lead by the Divine guiding light as we move through the dark shadows of today’s events and experiences. For we only have one life to live at a time, so let us pray, that we and our love ones stay out of any general hospital as we live out all the days of our lives, and even though the old and the young may be restless at this time the world will return to a greater state of peace, joy, harmony, balance and with agape love towards self, others and the entire planet.
Soulfully Speaking, let it be so, and so, so it is.
It read, “I thought I could change the world. It took me a hundred years to figure out I can’t change the world. I can only change Bessie. And honey, that ain’t easy either.” – Bessie Delany
Well I haven’t lived a hundred years yet, but I definitely feel where Sister Bessie was coming from and have learned that change must occur inside oneself before it can manifest out into the world.
I also love other quotes and sayings like: “Be the change you want to see in the world”, “Change your thoughts and you will change your world”, and “Be gentle with yourself.”
The world can be changed when we start looking in the mirror at our own selves, in our own hearts, so our minds and actions will realign with the creative mind of our Creator. The creative mind of Love, self-love, love for others and love for the entire planet.
As Bessie figured out, and I agree, making that change ain’t easy, but I know for sure it is necessary.
So, starting today will you look in the mirror, look in your heart and see and feel where you will make the change within yourself …the change that will change the world for the way it was created to be.
The change can start by noticing your breath, the beautiful in and the beautiful out breaths that lead us to our souls. The change may be the process of forgiveness of oneself, or toward others.
Whatever change you decide to make today; remember to be gentle with yourself and with the process.
Until the next time, enjoy being the change in the world.
So, now that we have welcome in this new year…the year of 2020, the year of not only seeing with our 2020 eyes, but also seeing the vision through our hearts and souls.
In the book, A Course In Miracles, (VI. The Vision of Christ pg. 227) It states the following:
“The ego is trying to teach you how to gain the whole world and lose your own soul. The Holy Spirit teaches that you cannot lose your soul…You cannot sell your soul, but you can sell your awareness of it.”
Today right now in this moment you can bring your awareness to presence of the Holy Spirit by centering on your breathing and remembering who you are, and to whom you belong to. Ask the Holy Spirit to teach you how to be filled with Fruits of His/Her Spirit. The spirit of
LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENCE, KINDNESS, GOODNESS, GENTLENESS, FAITHFULNESS, and SELF CONTROL.
If each of us would envision and hold this kind of awareness, this year of 2020 will be the Vision of Christ. A vision we all can hold and share.
Until the next time, let’s use our 2020 vision. Continue reading “2020 Vision”
Greetings my Friends,
As this year comes to an end and winter is about to settle in, I am reflecting on two particular days and times. The first was about seven years ago on one of my weekly Monday visits with my Mother while she was still with us in her physical body.
Normally during my visits with her my time would be long and slow, but on this particular day my time was short and I was busy rushing around. When suddenly Mom asked, “Why are you rushing around just slow down and sit down for a minute .” Reluctantly I did just that- I sat down and for that moment my rushing ended.
The second was just a few days ago when my daughter, Ty’ and I were talking about stuff, and she mentioned to me that things happen in stages and ages. I laughed and quickly reflected with a hmmm then expressed that is so true.
To me stages and ages and winter is nature’s way of saying slow down and stop rushing, and know that things will still get accomplished.
What are you rushing around doing right now in your life? What would happen if you would slow down and stand/sit for just one moment or two?
Until the next time, remember just because you slow down it doesn’t mean things will not get accomplished.
When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I felt as a child, I thought as a child. Now that I become an adult, I have put away childish things. – 1 Corinthians 13:11 New Heart English Bible (NHEB)
As a child sleeping in my twin bed, one night after reading and writing in my diary and finishing up my good night prayers, something happened to me.
That night lying in my bed with my left ear resting on my firm mattress, I could not only hear my heart beating or thumping loudly, but I also felt and heard every breath as it entered in and out of my body.
As a young child, that awareness frightened me because, in my mind, for some reason, it reminded me of death. So, I quickly turned my head over to my right ear only to discover the same happenings. I then turned over onto my back to silence the awareness.
Today as an adult I listen on purpose to tune into the rhythm of my heartbeat and the flow of my breath because I know they are gifts from the Universe saying to me, “ Be that connected, be that aware, use your power because they are signs of life, not death, and they are here to guide you along your way.”
It is from this awareness as an adult that when things fall apart I try hard to tune into the gifts of my heart and breath.
It is not always my first response when things and thoughts are cloudy, but when practiced, I witness and experience how the heart and breath will not only key me in on the realness at hand but have keyed others as well.
So, today, in this video, I will guide you with one of many different tools to focus or redirect your awareness to the gifts of the heart and breath. Gifts that once frighten me as a child, but now as an adult, I cherish and welcome their presence and guidance.
