It’s been about 1 1/2 years since I last posted here.  There are many reasons for my absence, and truthfully, I thought I was finished with blogging.

But once again, several synchronicities have blessed me over the past several months, all leading me to this day, when, with great joy and gratitude, I return to my writing.

This past year and a half has been a true roller coaster ride…so many unbelievable things finding their way into my life…experiences, people, wisdoms…things beyond anything I could ever imagine or even dream of.

stranger than fiction

So, where to begin….

How about the fact that I turned 70 this year!  Still trying to wrap my head around that number…which basically, is all that it is…a number.  But still, all my life, even today, when I hear that someone is 70, my first thought is, “gee, that’s old!” .  And yet…I’m definitely NO!

70 birthday all together

So wrapping my head around the whole notion is an interesting process.  And it has brought me great insights, understandings and loving perceptions of who I am at this stage in my life.  I have also begun to work with other women who will find themselves at this crossroads in life and the responses have been remarkable.

I feel deeply grateful and immensely blessed to have reached this wonderful new place in my life…I don’t know where the coming posts will lead, but have a feeling that many of them will be related to this new stage in my life’s journey…and this is very exciting to me.

Wonderful family, new love, continued love affair with India, dancing more than ever before,  deepening my Reiki, Yoga and Meditation practices…all wonderful things.

A True Blessing

TRUE LOVE.jpeg
True Love – Loving fully and without fear, will never leave you empty, in pain and broken, but enriched and rewarded. It is a blessing from above which is just that-a blessing!
Even when the person must leave your life for some reason, the blessings he brought into your life while you were together, remain. Your heart is not broken beyond repair…It is simply confused.
Once the confusion clears-in its own time-your heart will remain as strong and open to receive new love as it was before. And once it is ready, new love will easily find its way to you, and into your heart.

With Love Light and JOY

A Time for Cleansing and Renewal

Brilliant blue skies, invigorating breeze whipping around your hair (for those who have it(!)), bird songs everywhere, the heady smell of orange blossoms, flowers and trees in bloom,  the hum of bees, renewed warmth and sunshine – these are all the wonderful blessings of  Spring in the Air.

After a very long, dreary, cold and rainy winter (which is of course a blessing in a country which never has enough water-but this doesn’t make the winter any easier to live through for those of us who don’t do well in cold and damp), these wonderful blessings of Spring are even more appreciated and welcome.

And when everything is renewing itself in Nature, we, as human beings also feel the need for renewal, hence the common practice all over the world of “spring cleaning”.   This does not have to end with the physical cleaning of our homes and gardens.  It is a perfect season for Nurturing ourselves as well. A perfect time to literally cleanse and rejuvenate ourselves as well physically.  We all have our own ways of doing this, but one of my favorite is to spend a few days just juicing, or if a full juice fast is too difficult (as it is for me),  eating lightly and drinking at least a liter of freshly juiced veggies and fruits during the day.  The effects are instantaneous and the benefits many.  When I am in India of course, I do my month long Panchakarma which is the height of detox and rejuvenation, but alas, I will miss out on this, this year

And then of course, we might want to move on to further cleansing, on other levels . The time when all of Nature is bursting forth in bloom and renewing itself, is a perfect opportunity for our own body (as above) but also mind and Spirit to blossom forth with new vigor. There are many ways to “feel clean” on levels other than physical.  Just one quick example (see how many you can imagine yourself), is to imagine water flowing over, around and through you and gently washing away anything which is no longer of value or use to you in your life.

Feel its cool flow and imagine its clarity and its cleansing effects.  This exercise can easily be worked into your meditation practice, or as an exercise in itself a couple of times a day.  It is also helpful to do it while actually in the shower, while the actual water is cleansing you from the outside, imagine this flow cleansing you from the inside.  Use your imagination.  Play with the idea, and ENJOY!

It is also the time of year when Passover is celebrated, also know as the Festival of Freedom-not just for the obvious reason of the children of Israel being freed from slavery, but a celebration of our freeing ourselves from types of enslavement – Freedom from limiting thought patterns, negative emotions and perceptions, and most important-Freedom from Fear and the renewal and strengthening of Faith.  Faith in God and the Universe, and Faith in ourselves and our Divine right to live  a full, joyous and blessed life.

If you choose to, you can also ask the Angels for assistance in this rebirthing process.  You may have your favorite Angels that you turn to, or you could ask Archangel Raphael for help as he is the remover of all obstacles to healing (some of you might choose to turn to Ganesh for removing of obstacles of any kind on your journey), to Archangel Gabrielle, who brings us into full awareness of our Divine, subtle but powerful feminine energies and strength, Archangel Michael who protects us, fills us with cleansing white light and removes negativity on all levels, and finally, Archangel Uriel, guiding us forward in this adventure we call our life journey and this period of renewal and growth. He guides us through the difficult choices, (he is sometimes called the psychologist Angel) lighting the way when it becomes dark and frightening, and giving us the “road map” when the road becomes confusing and we don’t know which way to turn next.

Will try and post further suggestions for deeper cleansing, but for now, am concentrating on the physical me, and trying to devote as much energy to the process, including extra sleep and rest during the day, so posts will be shorter than usual and more sporadic.

Will be sharing further ideas, and would love to hear from you as well about your own ways of cleansing and rejuvenating yourselves.

with much light love and JOY
