MOVING BEYOND PAIN

Pain, (can be physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, or a combination of these), is frightening, frustrating, debilitating and depressing. Pain is our body’s way of telling us that something is wrong…something needs to be fixed.

Whether the pain is prolonged and chronic, or sudden and acute, it is not something we can ignore. We worry, we obsess, we try everything possible to make it go away…we look for reasons, we try to understand…and still the pain persists!

Prolonged pain, especially where no immediate solution is found, is frustrating and frightening. It effects our day to day functioning and leaves us with a feeling of complete hopelessness when confronted with its uncertainty. It is a very frightening place to be especially when we see no imminent relief in sight.

It is weakening and debilitating, using vast stores of energies, and the unresolved issue leads to extreme levels of stress which further weaken and deplete our systems.

So, how do we get past this? OR…move through it?

First of all, we “allow” it to be, surrender to it…do not fight it. It is there for a reason. We accept it with gratitude, Faith and Freedom from Fear. We do our best to be compassionate, gentle, patient and kind with our weakened self. We flow and trust that all IS well and WILL BE well.

HOW DO WE DO THAT? With FAITH. FAITH in whatever it is you believe in. FAITH that all is as it should be for our Higher Good…that there is a bigger picture, and overview, which we are unable to see….FAITH that all will resolve itself in the best possible way, at the best possible time. We RELEASE our fears expectations, judgments, ego, and interference…we allow God, Source, Creation, Universe Higher Being, to bring all things into play in the best possible way for our Higher Good.

Doing this is very difficult…despair, hopelessness, despondency, distress and depression are all working against us and it takes a conscious ad concerted effort on our part.

How do we reignite our Faith in difficult times? That is another entire post…but Prayer, Meditation, asking for guidance and direction and the wisdom to hear the answers…and work with them towards the solution which is already in place. AND BE GRATEFUL. Faith is not something that just happens. We have an active role in keeping it alive…we co-create our lives together with Spirit. (More in a future post)

But when we DO make the effort, we will lovingly and gratefully find ourselves moving back into our Sweet Spot back to balance, to bliss, to joy, to acceptance to gratitude and to happiness.

PERFECTION IN UNIQUENESS

We are spectacular BECAUSE of our differences. They are what make us Simply Unique and Perfect.

Here is a small sampling of the huge variety of flowers I encountered while doing my errands in town today

wpid-img_20150522_145831.jpg  wpid-20150430_100105_hdr2.jpg.jpeg

The Divine Artistry and Creativity of Nature is truly astounding. No human hand could ever produce such perfection, such variety, such uniqueness.

wpid-img_20150514_142514.jpgwpid-20150430_100727_hdr.jpg

These are all “Flowers”, but each is individually amazing, spectacular, and wondrous in its own beauty.  Each one is completely different than the other.  Their being different doesn’t make them any less amazing, spectacular or wondrous.  Simply Unique and Perfect.

wpid-20150503_1304362.jpg.jpegwpid-img_20150522_215410.jpg

In the same way, we have all been created by God, Divinely special, unique, perfect.  We are precise works of Divine Art, designed and created exactly as we should be. PERFECT exactly as we are.  UNIQUE in ways that are astoundingly beautiful.

A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY

Be Happy You Deserve It

The beginning of a new year is a golden opportunity,  a chance to journey within and see what we find, explore the inner workings of our soul and try and move forward into a new place. There will always be things which need to be questioned and challenged, and always new ways and opportunities to make profound changes which will help us move forward in our Sacred Contract, our reason for being here.

Let us all pray that we be granted the guidance, clarity and direction we need, as well as the wisdom to understand and perceive the blessings given to us, no matter what form or disguise they may take.

This would be a good time to take a minute and go back and check out the previous post on Living in the Shadow of the Past and the Power of Forgiveness and finding the ways to release all that is no longer necessary or healthy for us in the coming New Year. It would also be a wonderful time to begin doing the forgiveness exercise explained in the post for all those in your life who you still need to forgive, (including yourself?). This is a wonderful opportunity for us to discard everything which we do not need to move forward in peace, tranquility, love, laughter and good health. Let’s move out of the Shadow of the Past into a beautiful, sunny and tranquil New Year.

A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR

I found a job!!  I’ve been needing to get back into the work force for some time now.  Retirement is a wonderful blessing, but my financial plans were not working out as expected and I need additional income to stay independent.  Been thinking about how to do this for some time….and then this week, for reasons which will soon become clear below, I had to cancel my ticket to India for this year.  And just five minutes later, I was offered a job!!

One door ALWAYS opens when another is closed!  It’s as simple as that.

Here is my post from my India Journal blog which will explain the rest.

Today I cancelled my ticket for this years trip to India.  It was something I knew I had to do for some time but kept putting it off.  I am truly heartsick at the thought of not “coming home” to Ma Ganga for another full year, but at the same time, realize that this too is a blessing in disguise.

Although truly sad and disappointed at the moment, I’m sure this is a blessing in disguise and I remain grateful to God and joyful and accepting of all things! !

Just to clarify, I had scheduled long overdue cataract surgery for April, upon my return from India.  But the condition has worsened to the point where I can barely see out of my right eye, and the left is getting worse by the day.  So no choice.  Must be taken care of.

I know that something wonderful is waiting for me and will simply continue to enjoy each and every day to the fullest, in full acceptance joy, gratitude, Faith and Freedom from Fear. Despite the momentary disappointment and sadness, Life is definitely beautiful and full of wonderful surprises!

much love light and JOY

Namaste

…EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT JEWISH!  🙂

SHANA TOVA HAPPY NEW YEAR

As always, my prayers are with all of you and as the Jewish New Year approaches, this is a good time to contemplate (and you don’t have to be Jewish to use the opportunity) where you were last year at this time, where you are today, how you feel about your “today” and how much of what you dreamed of last year you have succeeded in manifesting into reality !!

I leave you with my blessings for another wonderful year, and of course with the following food for thought:

Cultivating Faith is no different than cultivating a garden. The more time you spend on it,the more beautifully it will grow and bring you joy. You must weed it continually, and the weeds in the garden of Faith are fear and doubt. The water and fertilizer which allow it grow are prayer, meditation and…more than anything else, gratitude.

flowers along the way

SHANA TOVA
