Everything’s Going to Be Okay

Journeyer, this week (like most) has been one hell of a ride!

Last week ended and this week began with Warren and I running away.

A little R&R always does the body, the mind, and the relationships good, don’t you think?

There’s been the usual day-to-day drudgery like dishes and laundry and noticing the dust on the furniture and floors…

Bills to pay…

Money to be “found…”

Business deals to sign, seal, and deliver…

Soccer games to attend…

Appointments to schedule…

Thank goodness for restaurants, ’cause I let others do the cooking for me this week!

And I thank the heavens every day for the people in my life.

You’ve heard of the Law of Attraction, right?

What you think about and give attention to is what you bring to yourself.

When we’re aware of they yucky stuff, we see the yuck, and we often feel even yuckier.

When we’re aware of joy, peace, and beauty, we see joy, peace or beauty, we feel those things at our center.

This kind of stuff has been happening to me at warp speed.

Whenever I think about something, it appears everywhere.

When I take the time to think about my next steps with The Five Facets Philosophy on Healing, I find myself bombarded with thoughts and ideas…in the shower, while I’m driving, while I’m eating or watching a movie or, sometimes, while I’m in the middle of a conversation with someone…

It’s. That. Bad. Or, rather, it’s that good.

Daily I am grateful for the quarter sheets of paper that I recycle from every single-sided copy that comes my way. I keep them in my office, in the study, in the kitchen, and in all of my cars…

I often find my scrawled thoughts at the bottom of my purse or on the floor of my car before they make their way to the piles of paper on my desk. Sometimes I can clearly read what I wrote, sometimes I have to try and read between the lines, and sometimes I simply scratch my head because, out of context, the thought makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

A muse gone wayward…

As those of you who’ve been reading for a while know, Warren and I have been working hard in marriage counseling, I’ve been experiencing a spiritual awakening, and my work on healing is coming into its own.

All of these things make me happy and anxious at the same time, probably because I am creating new norms and experiencing change…

Learning and growth and accomplishment, rather they appear in the form of finally getting around to scrub the toilet or write the copy for an upcoming speech or internalize a new perspective on something, brings me joy and peace.

It’s been a good week, Journeyer.

I took the time to write a post, not one, not two, but three times I strung words into meaningful form…

I wrote a note to the widow of a guy I used to work with…she’s been on my mind for months, and it felt so good to finally respond to the urging and let her know that people remember her and her now-deceased spouse…

I had a past life regression session with Christy, one of the girls who has helped bring my spiritual awakening to me like a high speed freight train…

My hummingbirds continue to alight on the feeder and greet me before they drop down to drink…at first it was only the red-throated one to do this, but now two others are pausing to share something with me…

I RECEIVED AN E-MAIL THAT THE FIVE FACETS’ WORKSHOP HAS BEEN ACCEPTED FOR THE NORTH CAROLINA SOCIAL WORKER’S FALL CONFERENCE!!

I am honored and humbled and jazzed to present Beyond Bereavement: Making the Transition from Grief to Healing™ to this amazing group of professionals and healers.

If there were a way to capture the crazy dance that my joy nerves are doing I’d play it for you. I can’t do that, but I did find this sticker that was designed by an artist named Dan Morris. The mystical elements of sun, moon, and stars make the image that much more apropos…

I am grateful for my sister, one of my greatest cheerleaders, who not only encouraged me to apply to one of last year’s conventions, she nudged me to apply again when that application was denied…

I finished the first draft for the Clarity Connects event! If you’re anywhere near Buffalo, NY and you’re looking for inspiration, come spend a few hours with us. You’ll be glad you did.

Last week I chose a meditation space in my home, and I spent a few more days being still in that place this week. I’m amazed at how what feels like sitting for five minutes actually turns out to have been fifteen or twenty.

There was a part of me that said, “You have too much to do to just sit and do nothing…” But I did it anyway because what I’ve been doing hasn’t quite been working the way I wanted it to, and my lists just kept growing…

Those of you who mediate probably know what I’m going to say already: That there little practice seemed to open up blocks of space, probably because those precious minutes unblocked the pent up energy that was putting me in my own way…

I rarely read because it takes me so long and, again, I don’t think I can take the time…

I actually took the time to read this week and to sit out on my enclosed deck where I drank in the birdsong and the breeze that kissed my skin as it blew through the room…

I spent a few glorious hours with a new friend whose smile lights up the world. She taught me about manifestation writing…more Law of Attraction…

The list goes on and on, Journeyer…

But to cap off the week, I had the strangest coincidence…

A guy I’d met at a Clarity event was sitting in the lobby as I left my past life regression session.

We exchanged the customary pleasantries and then he held up this book he told me he was taking to Christy.

Serendipity Though I’d asked if I could borrow it when she was done with it, something told me that I needed to buy it as I sat in the Barnes and Noble cafe, where I was ticking off some of my other to-do items before meeting up with that new friend.

Journeyer, after reading parts of this book there are so many thoughts running through my brain that I can’t spit any of them out…

Validation.

I guess that one word will have to do for now. If  you’re looking for answers, if you’re struggling to understand things about your life that just keep happening and don’t make sense, or if you’re just plain curious, YOU MUST BUY/RENT/BORROW THIS BOOK.

The Life You Were Born To Live: A Guide to Finding Your Life Purpose.

Dan Millman.

Remember the title. Remember the man’s name.

If you can’t get to the bookstore or the library now, write it down. Put the information somewhere. Anywhere. It will find you when you need it.

Trust me

You want this book. If not now, then some day down the road…This book is going to change your life

The angel numbers 222 are all around me and have been whispering for months Everything’s going to be okay.

This book is just one more piece of that puzzle…how did I describe it? Yes…validation

The fortune cookie gods believe it, too, for this is the message they sent me when Warren and I went to dinner Thursday.

Lifetime of Hapiness Fortune

We all will lead a lifetime of happiness, Journeyer, we just have to keep choosing it, to open ourselves to those fleeting moments that happen…It’s the Happy Happens Mantra, “Just like the proverbial shit happens, happy happens.”

Believe it.

What about you, Journeyer? What moment(s) brought you peace, comfort, warmth, or joy? Share them here and spread hope and cheer!

Until we meet again, yours in hope, healing, and happiness,

On Saying Goodbye
