“The Eyes to See”

paint-2985569_1920.jpg

I once asked in an intuitive report about connecting with the angels.  The response was that these energies were already available to me. I just needed the “eyes to see”.  This puzzled me a bit, and I came away from my first listen thinking that I was just not trained enough, maybe just not metaphysical enough yet.

But today the message popped up for me again (as messages often do), and I realized that wasn’t it at all.  It means that the angels already were communicating with me all of the time.  I just couldn’t see it.

They were whispering in my ear to pick up guitar again and play for the patients at the nursing home.  They were the voice of the volunteer coordinator who told me it was a great idea.  They were the kick in the butt that finally got me out the door and to the home for that beautiful experience with a patient and his family as he was getting nearer to transitioning.

They were the nudge to pick up The Vortex from the used book store, the voice of my coach telling me to read it, and in the voices of the patients who inspired me to leave the book in the waiting room after it had been sitting in my back untouched.  They were also in the voice of the waiting patient who days later read a passage from the book that I needed to hear as much as she did.

They are in the coincidences, the messages I receive from songs, words from friends and strangers, angel numbers, and feelings of inspiration and joy.

In another text I listened to or read recently, it said angels are always there.  It doesn’t matter whether you believe in them or not, they will continue to be there for you, loving you and helping you.

What a beautiful thing. ❤  Much love and many blessings. ❤

Release Time

What are you currently focusing on?

I feel like I’ve been hitting some big walls lately.  The biggest is my frustration with not moving “fast enough.”  The message I keep receiving (from intuition, from my environment, etc) is to let go of the concept of time.  It doesn’t even really exist.  It’s a manmade construct.  As I was walking back to the house today, I really noticed the trees in front of me in a new way.  I realized that though they seem static to me, they are also growing, moving and thriving.  Do the trees complain about not growing “fast enough”?  Not likely.  They understand the universal flow.

Perhaps this is what my intuitive report meant by growing close to God through nature.  Nature innately understands what I sometimes miss.  It was good to soak up some of that good sun today.  I barely even noticed the cold.

Much love and many blessings. ❤

Communications Log Entry 1

In the health center where I work they keep a communications log so that the owner, therapists, and office staff can all communicate quickly with each other and have an easy record of the responses.  I’ve decided to create my own log.  

Yesterday I had a session with my coach, relaying my frustration that I didn’t feel as connected to my intuition, angels, and other guides as I knew I had the ability to do.  (I’d done it in past lives!)  Part of me felt that maybe the timing wasn’t right.  But part of me also felt that I wasn’t giving it the attention it required.  If I really wanted this badly . . . didn’t it need a little more love and focus?

She asked me to implement 3 things.  For multiple days, but at least for one day.  I’m going to shoot for 60.  This will be a combination of many things: a log of dreams, intuitive happenings, animal symbols, and angel numbers.  It will be a record of questions I’ve asked and answers I’ve received.  

So, here we go, starting with yesterday/this morning:

DREAMS

This morning I dreamt I was running from someone.  I believe he was Asian, and perhaps a martial artist.  In one of the first sections of the dream I was hiding in a side room with my sister.  My parents were in the other room, perhaps as a gatekeeper.  I didn’t see it, but I understood that my parents were later killed.  Again, I was running from this man, and perhaps a gang of people.  I quickly ducked into a restaurant (not sure if my sister was with me) and the owner hid me in the back, possibly among some very large pots/cauldrons.  I think they came in looking, but I can’t remember.  At the end I was in a room with a friend, probably her house.  We were standing at the counter and there was a telephone.  When we picked up the phone we got a strange voice.  At first it sounded like it was the Asian man talking with us, but then it seemed like it was a recorded message. I had the feeling we were now trapped in this place.

I also had a dream that I was in a bathroom with my current employer, and she was cleaning up some water on the floor, saying that it had come from the place of my fiancees previous employer.

Finally, I remember a dream sequence where I was rolling around laughing on the floor twice.  Once was after I’d been shown a picture of something, I think of someone, on someone’s phone.

Yesterday I dreamt something about improv.  I remember doing quite a bit of it.  At one point I believe I was making swimming motions.  I remember people being attracted to me, coming toward me.  (I must have been good at it!)

ANGEL NUMBERS

The gas pump stopped early for some reason.  I didn’t realize until I was back driving again that the car was only 3/4 full.  I looked at the price and total gallons and then decided to look up these numbers in Doreen Virtue’s angel number book:

618

Your manifestation practices are working.  Keep visualizing and affirming abundance.

818

Your positive affirmations about your career and finances are working, so keep going.

198

Your life purpose is the answer to your prayers about money.  Devote yourself to service that involves your natural talents and interests, and you’ll be fully supported in return.

Other angel numbers that popped up, to see if they repeat: 45, 111, 77.

QUESTION AND ANSWER:

Question: I wonder how I can better connect with myself and my guides?

Answer: Reach out to them, experiment, and log your experiences.

Question: My friend/colleague is reaching out, and I don’t feel I can support her in the way she is asking.  How else can I help?

Answer: Ask her how else you can help.

OTHER OBSERVATIONS

  • I had some computer challenges yesterday.  The computer froze up at the office at least twice. (Was it me?)
  • I noticed a repeat of some of the names on the scheduler.  (Twice there were back-to-back clients who shared the same name.)
  • Quite a bit of head buzzing (overhead and forehead, where the 3rd eye is.)
  • This morning I could have sworn the dishrack was full. I planned to ask Brian to clear it.  But when I was on the phone this morning talking with him about other things, I looked over, and it was clear.  He had cleared it the night before.
  • Driving home, late at night, for the first half of the drive I hit mostly red lights.  (For the 2nd half I decided to stop paying attention to it.)
  • A tutoring student who I hadn’t heard from in a while reconnected with me yesterday evening.  I had been thinking about him that morning.
  • It is currently 8:18 as I’m typing this.
  • I had the inclination I needed to stay in the right lane.  That turned out to be the best move.

CURRENT READINGS, ETC

  • I have read up to chapter 3 of Crossing Over by John Edward.
  • I recently purchased My View from Heaven: A Boy’s Story of His Journey to Heaven and the Purpose of Life on Earth. By Sarina Baptista

OTHER OTHER

  • I recently became an official volunteer for Joliet Hospice.  I have now completed two visits to a nearby senior living community.
  • I have found my attention being drawn to graveyards for the past year.  This past week I had a lovely birthday breakfast with my dad, and as we are walking, we decided to stop in the local one and discovered some very old, very fascinating grave markers that dated back to Civil War times!

This feels like a study!  I hope you enjoy it as much as I already am!  Feel free to join in the fun!

Much love and many blessings. ❤

Abundance Shift: The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity

I am really excited about this book.  It’s funny because this is not the original post I intended to blog today.  That will come later.  (I am working with one of my favorite artists, Christopher Walker to help me create an image for that post first.)

I had another beautiful session with my coach Jacque (of course!), which led me to want to blog about it, which led me to want an image for it (which was impossible — though I tried to find one — because I had somehow created this image myself out of my own mind!)  This then led to me sharing my blog post draft with Chris to inspire him, which led to him recommending this book to me!

I’ve already begun listening to it.  I’m one hour in, and I love it.  What I love most is that 1) This author is telling me things I’ve heard over and over again but in a way I’m better understanding or maybe ready to understand 2) This author is also shaking up my world a bit!

“I am enough.”  This phrase came up for me first in the Masks Off! coaching class I took with my same coach, Jacque Alderete.  I haven’t really resonated the phrase, but it’s making more and more sense why it’s coming up for me.  I realized today that I have this sense that I need to “earn” money.  That I need to deserve it.  And I was beginning to feel that this would always be out of my grasp.

Catherine Ponder says that there is no “deserving.”  Just by our nature, abundance is ours.  It is the Law of Divine Birthright.  “Mmmhmm,”  I thought.  I had heard this before.  But then she blew me away.  She equated lack thinking to “sin.” “Poverty is a sin. It drives men and women to all manner of terrible things.  It drives people to delinquency and crime. Why would we think it would be right for us not to have enough?”

She said that we as a people have been misreading the Bible.  This came from authority figures wishing to dissuade rebellion and control the masses.  In actuality: “The Bible is a prosperity textbook.”  The Bible clearly shows that settling for lack and limitation IS NOT God’s way.  She says that most of the great men in the Bible had great access to riches.

And then, she really turned my head when she said that asking for money for the sake of the good works you will do with it is just as much of a problem. . .

But it makes perfect sense now.  As children of God (Source) we are meant to be abundant.  “Why should God want us to be poor?” Done.  “Lack” does not fit with our birthright. “Prosperity is your divine heritage.” We have only to ask and also invoke the Universal Laws.  But to ask for abundance because of what we will do with it — that is simply “deserving” all over again, but coming in through the back door.  And can only lead to resentment and frustration when we things don’t work out as we’d hoped: Shouldn’t I have this abundance by now??  Look at all the GOOD I would have done with it!

So, here are the keys I’ve discovered so far:

1. Recognize that your mind is your connecting link to abundance.  Become aware of your attitudes, mental concepts, beliefs, and outlook.  These will influence your ability to receive. Also, be open to how you might receive.  Ponder says abundance comes through the “talents, abilities, and ideas” that are longing for expression through you.    “God can only do for you what he can do through you.”  Open yourself up to these possibilities and be prepared to act.

2. Be a person of increase.  This is the Law Prosperity.  Everyone always has something to give.  Ponder tells the story of a widowed woman who was desperate for food for her family and nearly cried when her wise pastor told her to find something to give.  She then remembered that she had some beautiful flowers in the garden.  She willingly cut them and gave them to a very grateful sick neighbor.

3. Open up contact, say: “I stir up the gifts of God within me and around me, and I am blessed on every hand with happiness, success, and true achievement.”

4. Prepare the way. The same widow set out her finest china for dinner that night in expectation.  The kids began to get excited in anticipation.  Soon after someone who had owed her money came by and dropped off a portion of the debt owed, which was enough for dinner.  Act in expectation of it happening.  Pray, affirm your capacity for abundance.  “I attract whatever I choose.  I choose health and abundance.  I dare to attract riches and its hospitality and enjoy them now.”

I look forward to continued insight!

Much love, many blessings. ❤
