New Opportunities

I could have titled this post “Be Careful What You Wish For,” but as you will see, I think “New Opportunities” is more fitting. It all started with the HGTV Dream Home giveaway a few years ago. If you aren’t familiar with this particular giveaway, it’s where HGTV selects a parcel of land in a town and builds what they consider to be a dream home. They, along with their partners, take care of everything from building the home to decorating it. They even include a car (the model varies depending on the partner donating it) and a fairly hefty amount of cash, which presumably is needed in order to afford the taxes and insurance unless you yourself are also flush with cash and can afford to have fun instead with the HGTV monies. But I digress…

That particular year HGTV selected a parcel of land in my town. To say that I was excited is an understatement. I researched the site – which was no easy feat since the location was brand new and hadn’t been included on any maps yet – drove past the area, followed the building process online through their photo montage, and sent lots and lots of energy out into the universe for that to become my new home. I faithfully entered the contest every day, and when I came across a special occasion card with a flashily written “Congratulations On Your New Home” on the front of it, I thought it was serendipity. I purchased the card and set it on a table by my front door where I would be sure to see it every day. I figured it wouldn’t hurt to have a visual reminder too!!!

Perhaps by now you see where this is going…  As it turns out, I did not win the dream home. I, along with millions of other entrants, was crushed. I thought that for sure since I lived in the area and had sent out so much positive energy surrounding this house, that the universe should help me win it.  Apparently the universe had other plans.

I largely forgot about the “New Home” card. It remained on my table by the front door. Every once in a while I would glance at it when I walked out the door, or when I was sitting in my living room. I’m not sure that I thought anything about it really other than the fact that it didn’t hurt to leave it there because I couldn’t figure out where else to put it. As it turns out, this bright and happy card has continued to work on my subconscious and on the energy I have sent out to the universe, for a little while ago I found out that my residence is being sold and that I would need to move.

I’ll be honest and tell you that this has been a struggle for me. I am going from a place where I lived for almost 14 years and has ample room, to one that is approximately 1/3 the size. As you might imagine, in almost 14 years I have managed to accumulate a significant amount of “stuff.“ As you might also imagine, having to go through said “stuff“ and determine which things will fit in the new residence and which other things will need to be either sold or donated, is a daunting task. It is not one I have been happy about doing. Nevertheless, bit by bit I’ve been addressing these issues and getting it done. I’m by no means anywhere close to being finished, but I do see the positive side of this move. True, it was not what I had wanted originally, and it is not what I would’ve chosen on my own necessarily, but it does have its benefits and is, I’m sure, exactly what I needed. I’ve come to realize that I needed a complete paradigm shift and that this was the best way to achieve it. It has forced me to take a deep hard look at my possessions and at myself, and to determine what no longer works for me. In short, although it didn’t seem like it at first, I have been given a gift. I have an opportunity to represent myself; myself as I now am and who I want to be instead of the person I once was. I have to say that it feels great. There still some bumps in the road and a lot of work ahead, but I feel positive about the experience now and grateful for it. So, although I didn’t get what I originally wanted, the universe was listening and I did ultimately get what I needed in order to move forward. And I have to say that as far as moving goes, this one has fallen into place fairly well. So my advice to you is this: The next time you encounter something unexpected or unwanted in your life try to see what gifts it might also bring with it. I realize that not every situation has a bright side to it, but many do if we are only open to the message. I heard mine loud and clear. May the same also happen for you!

Navigating This Shift… to ME

We have definitely shifted into a different space. The trip I took to Mt. Shasta in September was so powerful that I haven’t been able to fully return into my former home reality. I no longer feel like there is a specific place that I can call home. I keep longing for something that I can’t put my finger on.  I have this feeling I should move, but every time I think I’ve found a place that would be good, it doesn’t feel right and the search begins again.  There doesn’t seem to be a place that captures what I’m feeling inside.

In addition, I’ve been faced with issues that I thought I had worked out. Feelings of victimization, self-loathing, abandonment, loneliness, judgment, not being heard, fear of confrontation, feelings of self- sacrifice, self-judgment, feelings of worthlessness. Heavy stuff, things that I didn’t realize were still profoundly affecting me. I mean, how much of this do I have inside? It feels insurmountable at times. I have been brought to my knees AGAIN.  Almost every relationship showing me things  to shift, but yet are so challenging to face. The relationship with my parents and siblings is at the moment the one that has been mirroring issues for me the most. I knew that I had been changed forever when in Shasta but I had underestimated how much. I really thought that I could come home, take a couple of weeks to re-acclimate and go back to my routine life. But that isn’t the case! There is no such thing as “going back to routine.” That time has passed, and I am writing this so that all who read this can find comfort in the fact that so many of us are currently feeling the same way. Everyone I’ve spoken with has a similar story. We are all being pushed so hard to step into our full Divinity, our Truth. So many mirrors being put up so that we don’t stop moving forward. The Universe is no longer waiting around! It’s been doing this for some time, I know, but I feel we’ve gone into warp speed over the last couple of months. When I can finally get my head above water, out of all those feelings of separation, I can see all of it from a higher perspective. In those moments of clarity… my goodness, how beautiful and perfect it all is!

It’s only when I get out of mind and sit in the vibration of Love, the vibration that is ME, that I get the clarity. That’s when I get the peace. Although, I have to say, those times have been few and far between. There are many days, moments within the day that I have to constantly remind myself to allow and flow, and man, that has been really hard to do! Ego is holding on with a death grip! It’s been a challenging time fighting it. The thought of just going back to the way I was would be so much easier… but that isn’t an option, because the feelings of being stagnant are even more terrifying than the self work, which I know will end in something wonderful.

The perfection is that all of the things that I am being shown are exactly what’s standing in my way of true self-love, and it is only through this that we will be able to do what we came here to do. It’s only when we get through every last thing that gets in the way of loving ourselves completely as the perfect Divine beings we are, that we’ll be able to go forward without fear or doubt or anything and be exactly what we were created to be, pure Love. Love that knows no boundaries. Love that encompasses all. Love that is our Oneness. Love that needs no words, or thoughts, or physicality. Love that will just Be, Be the Divine that we already are but we can’t yet see because of all the blinders we’ve put up. They are falling away. This is what we are all being pushed to realize. Because there is no work to do really; that’s just an illusion. Everything we are being shown for us to shift are just messages to ourselves, reminders, the bread crumbs we have left so we can find our way back.  All of it so we can remember WE ARE already all of it. We are the Divine. We are Perfect. We are ALL.

Today is Blissful

121116_ll_blog_bliss-002Recently, I was walking my two male Dachshunds as I do most days. I had already walked my Border Collie and two female Dachshunds.  Courtney, the senior girl and self-proclaimed “Queen”, was riding in her “moveable throne or carriage”, otherwise known as a dog stroller.  Since the dogs have access to the backyard via a dog door, the walks are for fun and connection as they often will see neighbors and get some attention, such as pets or kisses; if they’re lucky, they’ll get treats as well.

The walks had gone and were going just about “normal” … lots of start and stops … sniff sniff, pee … sniff, roll in the grass, etc. Celt, the Border Collie who came from Louisiana following Hurricane Katrina,, is not seeing nor hearing so well, plus he has arthritis in his back hips. Acupuncture helps, to a degree.  None of that seems to interfere with his pursuit of finding something to forage from in our walk, whether dropped food or Canadian Goose or cat poop.  Then, he slows down at the second part of the walk while my youngest Dachshund girl, Missy (aka Miss America) is pulling to go faster.

So, here I am …. pushing the throne, lifting Queen Courtney up and down throughout the walk as she demands … keeping Celt from eating whatever, waiting for him to finish his socializing with neighbors … helping Missy to slow down and enjoy the walk … sometimes standing with Missy 16 feet forward pulling me that way, Celt 16 feet behind me, me trying to not pull him … and reminding myself that we’re all out here for “FUN”.

~whew~ I survive the first walk, and start the second after a short break. I don’t usually have this attitude about walking but I really wasn’t feeling well; yet I was “determined” to take them.

The boys were doing their “usual” … each often walking at their own pace which is usually way behind or way ahead of the pace I was at; and often one was walking way behind and one way ahead, with me again in the middle. Camo will run way ahead … and Scoo will start barking at neighbors, other animals, completely enjoying themselves …. and sometimes contributing to “mommy” feeling a bit stressed and crazy.

…. And then in a moment, IT ALL SHIFTED ….

The boys and I were walking down one long stretch, there was a bit of a wind blowing, the temperature was wonderfully in the mid-70s ….

I found myself fully in the present … enjoying the boys enjoying their walk with mommy …. the wind …

At that time, I realized “Today is blissful” …. period.

It didn’t matter that I had a long to-do list, or I hadn’t been physically been feeling very well and earlier had felt like I could just crawl onto the couch and stay there for a while … or that Courtney had just been diagnosed with congestive heart failure and the medication was making her sick … or I had unexpectedly been in the ER and then the hospital a couple of weeks earlier ….. or, that I have long-term bills to pay off ….. … or that my elderly mom (don’t tell her I used that term) has been having health issues and I live 3,000 miles away, etc.

All that mattered ….. all that matters … is that in each and every moment, I can choose bliss.

It really is that simple.  Breathe in bliss …. breathe out bliss.  Live in and from bliss.

Blissfully,

Trinity Chamber: “Our Virtual Happy Place”

Recently I went into the “Trinity Chamber” which is a virtual “happy place” for Trinity Energy Progression™ Practitioners.

We can go in there for meditations, or anytime we want to. We can meet our Guides and Angels, or just hang out. Everybody sees or feels their Trinity Chamber differently. So, recently I went to the Trinity Chamber in a meditation; and I felt irritated which is very unusual for me. Something was different. It felt crowded and over-decorated by others. It seemed like people were changing the original intention of the Trinity Chamber as well as the energy in there.

I did not like what I saw or felt. I watched it for a bit and then started laughing and told myself: This is my virtual chamber; I can change it anytime I want to! It’s an illusion, anyways; and we are all One. Who am I really judging? Everybody has their own way of decorating their happy place. Immediately, I let the judgment go; and expanded my light even more. Instantly the energy changed; it felt all right, light and happy again.

Sometimes, in life when you get dragged into other people’s drama and stories. you have to tell yourself, “Not my monkey, not my circus! I can change that!” That goes for our virtual happy place, too. We can change and decorate it the way we desire it, with sparkles and sprinkles on top! You can detach from emotional drama and anything that does not suit you. You can’t control others’ behavior; but you can control the way you react to it. Always remember that nobody can decorate your own happy place. It’s your choice to create your Trinity Chamber or happy place any way your want.

Sometimes you can get caught up. You may need to take a couple of deep breaths and decide what you are going to put up with, what is acceptable, and what is not. It is your choice to accept it or to let it go. You are good enough, worthy and deserving to be happy.

Everybody can learn to detach and let go.

Don’t judge yourself or others. They are on their own journey. Just remove yourself from the situation and shine your light brightly and only allow the things that are for the highest and best.

If you feel negative energy from a known or unknown source, just send it to the light with Love, or back to their higher self. Always act out of Love. Sometimes it does not mean that you don’t love the people, or you won’t have anything to do with them; but it is for your higher good not to get sucked into drama. Respect yourself enough to walk away and go to your happy place.

We all are allowed to live our dreams and believe in Life, Light, and Love. And yes, we can all decorate our “Trinity Chamber” or happy place the way we like it!

Let your light Shine through in all that you do!

Caterpillar


Caterpillar

When the hinges
Finally give way

And the glamour
And glory sway

Beneath the weight
Of tarnished truth
Revealed,

It comes as a
Relief to see

The ultimate
Futility

Of pursuing
What is clearly
A dead end.

No time like the
Present

Said the caterpillar
As she stepped

Across the threshold
Of her homespun
Cocoon

From which she would
Emerge very soon

Transformed
From head to wing

Ready to begin
Her beckoning
Adventures in the sky.

by Mary Hogan

When I wrote this poem years ago, I could only imagine life beyond my unhappy hamster wheel. Now I know how beautiful it is to release the dysfunctional patterns, relationships, jobs and unnecessary burdens that defined my existence. So much so that this past summer I sold my house, quit my job, and moved across the country, from North Carolina to Washington State, to begin the next chapter of my story. This has been a HUGE growth experience for me, in ways I never previously imagined! As I construct my new reality, I look around and am amazed at how joyful and free I am. It’s a continual leap of faith, becoming easier and easier as I go. I’ve been so supported by family and friends. I love living at this high vibration, and connecting with others who are either already there or ready to be!

While talking with Angela this week about the tendency to cling to the habit of a pattern even after the underlying causes/karma are cleared, I had a vision of a deep wheel rut in the mud. I then remembered driving across the country, moving slightly to the left or right of the lane I was in to stay on the higher, less-worn pavement. This provided a smoother, quieter ride. Anyone who’s ridden in my Magic Red Carpet Mazda knows how important it is to avoid the bumps in the road. Opa!!

We each have the power to create new pathways in our lives. It starts with releasing the old familiar habits whose karma may be cleared, but now require a conscious choice to change. This is the time of re-creation in our lives, the world, the YOUniverse and beyond. In order to live our wholeness, it’s key for us to forge new patterns from the mundane details of our routines to where we live and how we manifest BBA (boundless benevolent abundance), from the highest vibrational energy available. We can do this… ALL of us!

As I write, I’m hearing the theme song from Aladdin, “A Whole New World”. I invite you all to join me on this magic carpet ride!
