I’m constantly looking for patterns and behaviors to examine, feel and heal. It’s a never-ending battle of what is it, who did I blame, how I judge myself for the latest failure to prove to myself that I am worthy. It’s an exhausting process that doesn’t yield the greatest results. I overthink my problems to the point of sleepless nights and worry consumes my every waking moment until I stop and connect to the divine – call all my angels and have a meeting of the Mind, Body and Spirit. In other words, I give myself a break.
Nothing is ever Wasted in your Life
Wow! What a concept! If nothing is ever wasted in your life then you have to give up regrets, disappointments, sadness, fear, judgement, and the thought that time is flying by and your life will end with too many regrets to mention.
In my family we have several different spiritual perspectives. My Dad said when we were old enough to choose our spiritual path it would be up to us to choose one. And no matter what perspective we chose we support each other in that choice. In last week’s Meditation Healing Circle, we were talking about following a Divine plan. And if we sit and meditate to listen to wisdom of that plan our life will be divine.
My granddaughter Nova is 16 months old. Some say she is late to the walking game. She would not walk on demand and she was determined to do it in our own time. And then suddenly one day she decided to start walking for no other reason then she was ready for the next step…
My teacher, Ned Wolf wrote a book called, “Awaken Your Power to Heal”. In it he says, “We must claim our birthright to heal. We each have unlimited power to heal our life. And we spend most of our time resisting that power and arguing for our limitations. “Great One, he would say, I’m going to treat you as though you’re a powerful, unlimited being.” “Examine your own self-imposed limitations, and find out what they are costing you.” And then go out and shake up your personal universe.”
A friend lost her 98-year-old mother yesterday. Her husband died when he was in his 50’s and at long last they are together again dancing in heaven together. Last week my best friend lost her brother who was 59 years old. He was talking on the phone and then he just fell over and died. Another life gone.
Stop for a moment and take a deep connected breath. No really stop for a moment and take a deep connected breath. Are you present in the here and now? Or are you off to the next thing racing from one thing to another until you slide into bed at night tired and exhausted from your day? Did you ever stop today and give thanks for being alive one more day?
