Everything Shifts

Early this morning I heard there was a 4.5 earthquake in the state of California. The faults are just adjusting and relieving some pressure. I feel that same need sometimes too, don’t you? When life gets on my nerves it’s almost like sleeping on my arm too long. Sooner or later it’s time to adjust. Movement causes relief and we always know when we need to do it. The pressure builds up. We become uncomfortable, emotional, and sometimes down right cranky. Let it go long enough, next thing we know there is a fire blazing. California is a great example of this too. I think the state has a temper. Or maybe she just needs an adjustment? When scientists study the reactions that happen from beneath the earth’s surface they come to theories as to why things need to shift. We have those same excavation capabilities. Go deep enough and it is easy to see where the cranky is coming from. Usually it means a change is coming or needed. If we don’t recognize the …

“Compassion” Will You Please Stand Up?

As I picked up the vacuum this morning to do a little house cleaning, I found myself becoming more than emotional. It’s not unusual for me. I am an empath, so this happens to me a lot. My heart suddenly felt like it dropped into my stomach. I stopped the vacuum and took a deep breath. Something has been on my mind and in my heart lately and it has to do with compassion in this world. A memory came back to me during a time when I published a newsletter that circulated around for a couple years or so. One particular article was submitted by my mother concerning my reaching out as an editor and writer. One way she described me in the article was an individual who could never understand why people treated each other with such lack of love and compassion. As I grew I came to know and understand that the dark sides of life tend to make the light look so much brighter. In the balance of things we tend …

God Knew, and Knows

Back in the early 90’s I had a friend named Alberta. She is no longer on earth but while she was her impact on my life was as tremendous as her heart. Life always has had its challenges. God always sends me an earth angel to get through them. At that time, it was Alberta. She was kind of a stout woman, had been through a lot herself, and to me one of the most loving people I had ever met. When life got crazy, and it often did, she would always repeat the very same thing. She would say, “Now sister, almost 2000 years ago when Jesus hung on the cross, He knew this moment in time would be going on for you. You are no surprise to God!” Hahaaa! I always thought I shocked everyone, with my out of the box thinking and always pondering my next mindful and spiritual experience. Somewhere in there lies the duality of life. We are spirit and we are human. I just wish the human part would …

Don’t Cause Your Brother, or Another to Stumble

It’s not uncommon for me to get more than one message in a day. When I Pastored my churches I often had more messages lined up than I could give at one time! This one is so timely and important always. Being a female it always kind of bugs me that the Bible more often speaks lessons in the male personna rather than the female, but that is not what this is about. As created people, for some reason we tend to love to pass some sort of judgement upon another. I am sure that is not what God intended for us when we were created. We are challenged daily to operate out of our higher God created self rather than our ego. The ego LOVES to point fingers, doesn’t it? Since I am on a roll here with brotherly, sisterly love and our “oneness“, another message came to mind. It’s about causing another to stumble. Meaning setting someone else up to fail in some way so they can be judged. Oh how the ego …

Today I am Grateful for My Husband. What Are YOU Grateful For?

This is not a blog post I expected to write, but, I do believe with all of my heart that gratitude is one of the more powerful healers on this planet, aside from love. I also believe gratitude is a part of love. It’s a part of loving others, having compassion, and loving ourselves. No matter what is happening in our lives, there is always something we can find to be grateful for. There is almost a magical power that goes along with being grateful. It means we have appreciation for the blessings we have been given. Having gratitude also shifts focus from the tough things to the things that are greater and more important. Today, I am sharing some things I am grateful for concerning my husband of almost 4 years now. We don’t always see things eye to eye. Who does? When two people come together to create unity with each other they take two separate lives and attempt to meld them into one. This is not easy and it is not meant …

Truth About Energy Healing: Reiki Energy Healing (Part 4 of a Series)

“There is a scientific study that integrative medicine including energy healing, relaxation techniques, and guided visualization are effective in the healing process of the human body. Modern medicine is taking another look at the mind, body, and spirit connection to health, wellness,  and healing.” Dr. Jenine Through much study and research I have found that energy healing has been integrated into the medical community more these days than ever. Doctors, nurses, hospice care professionals, and medical assistants, have been known to use traditional Usui Reiki energy healing within their practice. There is only one reason this is true! Energy is an effective healer! ​Our bodies contain energy centers and pathways that connect to every organ, every cell, and every process of the body. This same energy is found outside of our bodies as well. Energy can be felt by those who practice Tai Chi, QiGong, Usui Reiki and Energy Yoga, just to name a few. The word Reiki literally means “soul or spirit energy”, or “Universal Life Force Energy.” ​Energy work has also been known to affect and balance the …

Grand Children are Our Rewards

I always knew there would come a time when one of my children, or all of them, would have kids. I remember thinking how that would make me a grandmother! I don’t know why we always associate being a grandparent as being old. We are not older, we are wiser. It’s just like having lines appear on our faces; those crinkles that pop up almost suddenly. They don’t mean we are old. They just mean we have had expression. We have lived, laughed, been surprised and even cried. They become etched upon our faces to remind us of the moments we enjoyed and those we overcame. In the same way, grandchildren remind us of a job well done. We are blessed! God says that birthing children is an inheritance. That inheritance goes onward to become even more “grand” as the years go by. I saw both of my granddaughters as soon as they were born. Alexsys, my first, was with me the first year of her life during the day while her mama went back …
