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.

FB_IMG_1456037456215

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.

…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

Only Love-The Message Continues

Following the Card Reading from several days ago, I have been meditating seriously on several issues and asking for further guidance or wisdom.

I just received the following message:

ONLY love can bring good things into this world and into our lives. If we deny our soul’s desires and needs, we block out its light. We become dark and dull…We no longer shine from outside…we have no true joy or happiness…… your soul is now rejoicing and your face is bright with smiles and the glow of happiness…whatever awaits you waits to be seen, but you KNOW all will be well!

I am truly blessed!!  🙂

Messages in the Cards

We very often pray, ask for guidance and direction and assistance from God and the Universe when we are facing difficult periods in our lives.  And then we complain that our prayers are not answered.  But …

…our prayers are always answered.

The question is, are we listening to the answers?   From the moment you pray, from the moment you request assistance, guidance, direction, everything that follows is part of the answer.  But you must pay careful attention in order to understand what you are being told, or guided to do.  So when praying, and asking for guidance, it is always good to add the following:\

..and please give me the wisdom to hear your guidance and to understand what it is telling me.

I’ve been going through a long and difficult period in my life, on many levels, and for awhile, not only had I not been listening and paying attention, I haven’t even been ASKING for assistance.  !!  And of course…if you don’t ask the question…you certainly will not receive the answer.  🙂

Ask and You Shall Receive

Which is exactly what I finally did..and the answers were given to me, as they very often are, through my lovely Goddess and Angel Cards (Doreen Virtue).

I will not go into the deeper meanings of these cards in this post, but even the simple, and beautiful messages on the cards were enough to point me back in the right direction.  To help me get back on track so to speak.  To give me a road map for the next leg of the journey.

I always use them in pairs, the first card in a pair giving me the “what” and the second in the pair giving me the “how”.

And here they are, three pairs and the loving guidance and direction sent my way from God and the Universe.

FIRST PAIR

SECOND PAIR

THIRD PAIR

Although nothing technical has changed in my current situation, my entire outlook HAS changed and knowing that I am once again responsible for my own choices and decisions, has given me a new sense of tranquility.  Remembering that the angels are always with me, if I just call upon them, a feeling of peace.  “This is  period of your life which is unscripted”…I can choose to move into any new direction I want to.  I just have to make the decision to MOVE. “You are coming into the light…you know exactly what you are doing and we in Heaven are here to back you up fully”….”Relax into the arms of Divine Love…breathe away all fears concerns and worry”.   The messages go on and on and have once again put me back into my place of harmony and focus.

I am truly blessed

Pray for the wisdom to embrace change with joy, gratitude and complete freedom from fear.

Butterfly Maiden Doreen Virtue Goddess Guidance Cards

Whenever we are going through difficult periods in our lives, whether physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually, we tend to loose our way and forget how to stay balanced and focused.  We forget how important acceptance and gratitude are…we find it difficult to experience these situations in complete acceptance, joy, gratitude and freedom from fear.  And it is precisely during these periods that these things are SO important to us if we are to move past the difficulties in the quickest, easiest and healthiest way.

Very often these periods are precursors of change

….And because change  is difficult and frightening (even if we are  unaware of it on a conscious level), we tend to resist it rather than embrace it and all its blessings.  So one of the first things we can do is pray for the wisdom to embrace change with joy, gratitude and complete freedom from fear.  Also remember that Change cannot be rushed or forced.  Things happen as they are meant to, when they are meant to, for our Higher Good.

Azure Doreen Virtue Angel Message Cards

Going through one such difficult period myself at the moment, this is precisely what I did during my meditation this morning.  I had gotten o the point of feeling desperation brought about by my inability to “fix” what was “wrong”.  The need to release – to surrender, and to accept was overwhelming by that point, but I still found it difficult to get to that place.

During the meditation, several comforting ideas came to me, and I was guided to do a card reading for myself for further clarification and wisdom.

Taking out my cards, I joyfully began my session.  During a session I usually pull three cards each from two separate decks which I enjoy using together.  Doreen Virtue’s Goddess Cards and Angel Message Cards.  While doing this, one card “jumped” out of each deck, and I knowingly put them aside to view at the end of the “regular” session.  The messages I received through these cards have given me the understanding needed to change my entire perspective of my current situation, and almost immediately I felt the feeling of complete release and surrender to God and the Universe.  LET GO AND LET GOD once again began to function properly in my life!!

The cards, including the two which jumped out, came in very special pairs, each pair bringing its own special message as to what and how.  You can take a better look at the “jumped” cards at the beginning of the post:  (They in themselves would have done the trick…I am always amazed at the way the Universe contrives to give us what we need-as long as we ask for assistance). Butterfly Maiden and Azure.  They go hand in hand and say it all.

The next two pairs I want to share with you come from the full regular reading:

Doreen Virtue Goddess Cards

This pair relates directly “feeling sorry for myself” place I found myself in and include the message of: “avoid complaining and indulging in negative thinking”, and of course, reminding me of my strength and my deserving the best in all things!  Magnificent.

The second set once again speaks of power, strength…and deals with something which I’ve also been avoiding the past several months…my abilities as a psychic and healer-mainly from a place of fear. The message includes the following words of wisdom to me:  “You are a strong and powerful lightworker, and God needs you to accept and reveal your power”.

 Doreen Virtue Angel Message Cards

All in all, very powerful messages.  IT is as if God and the Angels have reached out their hands and helped pull me out of the place I was stuck in….and then given me the tools I need to move forward once again.  I am so blessed!

We very often need assistance, and the simple act of asking/praying for it, brings to us all it is we need at the moment.   Praying for wisdom to understand the direction and guidance and the messages sent our way, is all it takes!!

I wish you all pleasant, flowing, stress free days, as well as the wisdom to release, to surrender, when necessary, and never forget to pray for assistance when the going gets rough

With much love light JOY and gratitude

The More You Give the More You Get!

The Casino

The Casino

I have written in the past, both on this blog and on my Mindfulness Journal, about Manifesting Dreams and Creating a New Reality.  Much of what we talk about, and read about these days deals with the Laws of Attraction and attracting what we want into our lives. There are some very basic techniques about how to go about doing this. You can find innumerable posts, articles, videos, books, lectures, workshops etc. regarding this whole “business”.

But one thing which is very often overlooked, or not given enough attention, is the simple idea that “like attracts like” – meaning, if you live in a mode of want, if you worry about what you don’t have, and worry about what you do have but might not have tomorrow….if you count your pennies because you are afraid you may not have enough tomorrow, if you live “frugally” to insure your having enough “when”….then you are actually defeating the purpose. The more you live in fear of not having, the more you save for a rainy day, the more you count each penny you spend, the more you are “careful” with what you have,  the more you will attract more of the same into your life.  You will always be afraid and probably for the reason that you don’t have enough, you will never have enough for a rainy day, you will continue counting pennies because you will never have more than pennies to count, and you will never have “more”, rather you will continue to have ‘less”.

The story below is an example of how giving freely, even if you don’t have “enough”, of giving lovingly and without fear of “not having” what you need if you’ve given to someone else, of sharing what you have with a full heart, attracts even more into your life.  People who live like this, even if it seems as if they have very little, will ALWAYS have what they need, whenever they need it.  I can tell you this from personal experience as well.  Once I got out of the “fear” mode and moved into the “free” mode, once I began giving lovingly, to others and myself, whenever I felt like it or needed to, I began experiencing all kinds of unexpected surprises of money finding its way into my life, free vacations coming my way, strange “coincidences” and of course no longer having to worry that I don’t have, or will not have, enough.

I recently posted the following on my Facebook page:

On my way to the train station and in the blink of an eye my travel plans have changed. As always, God and the Universe are looking out for me, and I have been sent an Amtrak ticket by an angel named M. so that I don’t have to travel by local commuter train where I would save $60 or more but would have to change trains, (I am carrying all my luggage) ,wait for trains and spend more than 2 hours riding what is less than a 1 hour actual trip. I am truly blessed! 😀

The angel was my cousin who I was going to visit and she lovingly paid for my Amtrak ticket, round trip, and did so with joy and happiness.  Two days ago, she took me “just for fun” to a casino near her home.  I just played out the $5 I was given as an incentive by the casino, and when I finished, she took over the machine I was playing,  After a couple of minutes of play, SHE WON $1000!!!!.  And that is how it works!

The Winnings

The Winnings

Give Lovingly and Joyfully to Yourself and Others!

Be Happy About  the Money You Spend, on yourself and others!

Believe that You Are Deserving of an Abundant Life

THE MORE YOU GIVE THE MORE YOU GET!

Insights, Understandings, Blessings

Happy Smiling Flower

This was originally written 5 years ago, while in India.  This April, I am Not In India, but the past six months have seen great upheaval in my life once again, and the insights and understandings are once again a blessing, no less than they were 5 years ago.   Hope you will allow me to share it here, with some slight editing.

April 2007 McLeodganj , Dharamsala, India

More than anything, I have  truly learned the meaning of living in the moment and by doing so, with complete Faith in the wisdom of God and His Universe, I have found the secret of a truly happy and easy existence. I have been working and writing and teaching about Mindfulness and living in the moment for the past 6 years, (it is now 11 years) and this has been for me a validation of everything I’ve been working on and trying to help others live as well.

Geranium

Wanting more, or different, or faster, or whatever, only leads to frustration and fears of “what if”…”why me”..etc. Truly being with each moment and living each day as fully as possible and in true gratitude for each day’s blelssings, brings us true inner peace.

There have been many unexpected things this trip,(these past 6 months) but I have found the tranquility within to accept and embrace each new thing as it comes my way, with true equanimity and grace…and I feel so at peace despite the unexpected at each turn.

I am truly blessed.

With Love Light and Joy
