A Beautiful Day

IMG_0585

I’ve been looking for joy, and I found it today!  It was a wonderful day today.  I started with concentration and meditation exercises.  Then I went to the Y to swim, followed by a super hot shower and a few minutes in the sauna.  As I drove home, I listed all the things I was grateful for.  Then I headed over to see my mom and sis and we cooked up some food, listened to some metaphysical goodness and did some visioning homework.  We also did some goofy dancing and, my sister and I ended our visit with singing a few harmonized duets together. (“Come What May” from Moulin Rouge, “I Still Believe” from Miss Saigon, and “We Make a Beautiful Pair” from Shenandoah.  Then I headed over to the School of Metaphysics.  I had a pleasant, long talk with the director and then borrowed some audio recordings of some more awesome metaphysical content from one of my classmates.  (We plan on getting together to work on the study course together.)  Then, I attended the last class of the Spiritual Ethics course, led the Healing Service for the week, and had a jam session with the director and my dad in preparation for the Universal Hour of Peace on December 31st at the school. On my way home I listened to some of my more recent intuitive reports.   All in all a truly wonderful day.  I can’t wait to see what I dream about tonight.  (And, subconscious mind, PLEASE give me something that I can understand.  Seriously.)

Wishing you all a wonderfully, joyous week! ❤

Photo explanation: This was my creation for the day, my artsy outfit. (It looks a little better in person.) What’s fun about this is that every piece has a little story. I’ve had my glasses for around 5 years. (Thankfully, my vision hasn’t changed much.) One of the earpieces is chewed away from when Bowser was still in his chewing phase. The scarf is a recent purchase from Clothes Mentor, a resale shop near my house, after I first started changing my look to more of a Type 1 from Dressing Your Truth. The turtleneck is a Kohl’s purchase when I was looking for some simple backup tops for teaching. The necklace is Lia Sophia that I won at one of my friends’ parties. The purple frilled vest is a recent gift from one of my Metaphysics students after she noticed my wardrobe shift. The skirt is a purchase from a visit to Maplewood, Missouri during an SOM teacher’s conference. One of the girls had forgotten her teacher’s skirt, so we went walking to the nearby clothing shops together before the first meeting started, and we each purchased a skirt. The bright pink tights are from when I was in a Back Street Boys 80’s dance with other teachers from the elementary school where I used to work. The socks are. . . just regular socks. I think I ordered them on Amazon. And the shoes are ones that I was recently reunited with when my Mom was cleaning out her things. (They are so cute and perfectly snug around my narrow feet! Such a happy reunion. <3)

Still Weekend

www.som.org

I just came back from the Still Mind Weekend in Windyville, Missouri.  It was fantastic.  I didn’t want to come back. . . mostly because I didn’t want to deal with the odds and ends that were waiting for me back at home.  But I realized 2 things with that thought: 1. I need to honor my entire existence, including the physical (Can’t avoid it!).  2. All this stuff is really not a big deal in the whole picture of existence, anyway (so no point in freaking out about it).

I got my 4th intuitive report in the last 5 months.  I really did not intend to get that many reports this year (and at once!).  I just wanted the Creative Mind report and the Dharma report this year.  Buuuut I jumped on the Meditation report when it moved weekends — I’d really been wanting that one.  And I really wanted to get another Health Analysis report in solidarity with my metaphysics students who were getting theirs. (Great decision.)  I’m glad it worked out this way because all 4 have been connected and have helped me understand myself better and my purpose this lifetime.

So, in a nutshell, I need to be with people, and I need to help people.  This idea was cemented for me when I listened to all 11 of my intuitive reports back-to-back on the ride back from WindyvilleMy first past life profile from my earlier lessons says: “This one needs to aid others in the way that this one has been aided.” And all 4 of my recent intuitive reports mention people.  My Creative Mind report says that I open my creative mind when I emulate others.  My Dharma report says that I need to understand, respect, and appreciate others’ kharma — what they are working on in this lifetime.  My health analysis says that I need to share my imaginative visions with others while having a healthy respect for others’ thoughts, ideas, and gifts.  And my Meditation report says that I need to better understand influence — how it affects me and others — and to use it in leadership and for understanding, for the good of all concerned.

It is then no wonder that I get out of my mental slumps when I get out of the house and am around people.  It is no wonder that I LOVE teaching metaphysics and enjoy helping my tutoring students.  When I get wrapped up in my own thoughts I am in ego and conscious mind.  When I am with others I reconnect with subconscious and superconscious mind.   I suspect that the plan tucked away in my superconscious mind is basically about serving others to the benefit of humanity.  My last report says I’ve already been putting things in place for the work I’m to do.  I am in a service field: tutoring and teaching.  I have expanded my volunteer work in the School of Metaphysics (teaching, lecturing, attending events, becoming the director-in-training).  And I intend to serve through media, too, by continuing to blog and to start writing inspirational children’s stories.

A lot of what we talk about in the school comes down to purpose.  Why are we doing what we’re doing?  My answer: serving others for the good of all concerned.

Sending you all love, joy, and renewed insight into your purpose for this lifetime! ❤

Thankful & Metaphysical Thursday: The Present Moment

Gratitude is key.  It is the magic switch that can bring joy from despair.  It turns frustration and fear into peace and understanding.

I am grateful for spiritual focus sessions.  I received my Atlantean report this past weekend.  It was not what I expected — my reports never are! — and it was a wonderful weekend.  I went on three spiritual focus sessions this summer, and I see a common thread between all three.  All three express the importance of the physical, in remaining grounded and being connected through physical experiences.  Today I reread Dr. Laurel’s book Concentration during book club and got the same reminder.  How often are you fully involved in your experiences?  Do you use all of your senses to experience the present moment?  Or are you living in your head, removed from the opportunities in front of you?

I am grateful for reminders to keep my attention in the present.  Everything I experience is reminding me to be present-minded.  This morning I had another great conversation with my life purpose coach, Cindy Dove.  I kept resisting the direction she was taking today but ended the conversation so relieved that I almost cried!  I saw that I was sabotaging my progress with my thoughts again.  I was worried about years into the future without fully allowing and experiencing the present.  I was berating myself for not being on the “perfect life path” and had forgotten all of the potential opportunities for growth in my current experiences.  Romantic imaginings can lead to confusion and devastation.  What is reality?  By placing our attention on the moment, we can know truth.

I am so grateful for people! I have a new morning bike buddy who lives just a mile or two from my house!  We’ve met up because of a strong desire I had to include people more in my life.  This has also led to me joining the Plainfield BNI group to learn more about networking and supporting small businesses and also to educational activity visits at the Joliet Public Library.  Today was a day full of people, starting with a morning bike ride, continuing with a BNI meeting and library visit, and culminating in a delightful dinner with my family and an insightful book club.

I am grateful for faith, hope, and joy.  I am continually reminded that there are two sides to every perspective (at least!).  It is so easy to flip back and forth between extremes.  All it takes is a little present-mindedness and appreciation to get my thoughts back on track, to see the world as it is, right here, right now.  There is beauty without.  There is beauty within.  I just need to stop, be still, and receive it.

Metaphysics Monday: Anchors

This morning I dreamt of being back in school. I was an adult studying in an elementary school classroom. I’ve done enough dream analysis to know what that means — There’s a lesson I’m overdue to learn.

I’ve been seeing TONS of 1’s and 4’s combinations lately. Joanne Sacred Scribes says:

1’s and 4’s indicate that the angels are emphasizing strongly that you remain aware of your thoughts and intentions at the moment. The angels counsel you to make a special wish as you are now in a position where you are able to manifest your thoughts. You are asked to ensure that your desires are for the highest good, as the old adage ‘careful what you wish for as you just may get it’ is relevant here.

I’ve rearranged my 10 Most Wanted. . . . I believe it’s geared more toward the highest good now . . .

My uncle and I had our monthly resolution check-in today.  We ended by talking about anchors.  My Past Life Crossing intuitive report said that I try to throw down anchors with everyone and everything to stabilize myself.  But I really need to stabilize within.  Is this the lesson I need to learn today? We both made some good connections about how we’ve been “throwing down anchors” lately. and we considered how we can approach situations differently, from a place of objectivity, peace, flexibility, and love.

It is 11:14.  A good time to end. 🙂

Summary Saturday/Sunday: Working with Change

This weekend came at the tail end of some big change.  I left my full-time warehouse position on Friday and finished up my Spanish II tutoring Saturday morning.  I am relieved to have completed both of those, but I feel like I haven’t gotten a chance to breathe yet — and maybe I won’t!  There are things to do.   Goals to accomplish.   Gotta get moving.

It is a pattern of mine to be busy, and I’m taking a look at that.  Part of it is that I seem to fall apart without structure.  Another is that it’s an excuse not to look at my goal, purpose, and ideal.  Having downtime means having time to think, to reflect.  Busyness means I ain’t got time for that.

Based on my experiences from the last days, the next few weeks are going to mean a couple of things for me.

  1. Baby Steps.  I feel a swelling panic within me because of the huge projects lurking over me; i.e.  starting my business, securing supplemental income, and cleaning the whole house.  If I panic, I will shut down.  I will procrastinate or do nothing at all.  So, my first plan is to find the mini goals within the big goal and schedule them and knock ’em out.  If the little goal still seems like too much, I will break it down even further.  For example: getting myself completely organized and the house completely clean turns into: Cleaning all of my excess stuff (changes of clothes, school books and papers, old winter jacket!, out of the car and dumping it in the kitchen.  Next small step: taking things off of the kitchen table and putting it back where it belongs — a few items at a time.  Also,  I’m wanting to set up a new bank account for the business, and I’m considering a local institution.  Seems daunting!   My baby step can be calling them up to get some info.  Or researching them for a few minutes.  If I’m being perfectionistic about setting things up, maybe I drop in and talk with someone first and then come again another time.  Anything to get me started.
  2. Stay Solid, But Stay Open.  I feel I don’t do well with change, especially anything that originates from an outside source.  One of my metaphysics classmates said that she struggles with change and that it’s a “Virgo” thing, and — as a fellow Virgo — I pounced on it as a convenient excuse for my limitation.  I know from experience and my intuitive reports that I desperately throw down anchors around me when things begin to shift around me.  The important thing is to become centered within myself.  Part of that is becoming secure in myself and who I am and what I’m meant to do.  If I can be secure within I will be able to take advice and suggestions better from without — a moldable, squishy  outside with a rock-hard core!

What have you learned about yourself this week?  How do you deal with change?

Summary Saturday/Sunday: It’s the Weekend! — End of an Era, Cleanliness, What Do I Eat?, Where Do I Go from Here?, Control Freak?, and Why I Received This

It’s the Weekend! — End of an Era

I’ve sometimes wondered if anyone gets annoyed when radio stations announcers get excited about the “weekend”?  It makes me wonder who the listeners are for that station.  What about the waiter/waitresses, retail workers, computer programers, bank tellers, car dealers, customer service representatives, etc who don’t have a “weekend”?  As a weekend worker myself, I was at least amused.  And next week marks the reclamation of my first “weekend” day back.  I used to have 3 consistent tutoring students on Sundays.  One ended for the summer, one switched to Monday nights, and my writing/clarinet student of 2 years had his last lesson with me today.  (The student’s parents seemed sadder to see me go, but I know he’s feeling it somewhere inside, too!)  I am ecstatic to have the time back.  If you ever start feeling bored, just fill up your schedule ridiculously much and then slowly start taking things away —  like the farmer who complains he can’t sleep, then proceeds to add animal-after-animal to his house upon the advice of a wise man, and finally can sleep after he takes all of the animals away again.  The power of perspective and attitude is amazing.

Cleanliness

I am coming to realize my guests will likely never see a perfectly clean house again.  The carpet is worn, I haven’t dusted, I couldn’t catch all of the cat fur, I could have scrubbed harder, and I may have missed some spots around  and in the furniture.  But every little bit helps, and most of the rooms are pretty clutter-free, the countertops are clean, the dishes are done, the area is vaccumed, and I gave the kitchen sink and floor a good scrub.  Even though it isn’t perfect, it feels that much more pleasant to be home.

What Do I Eat?

Today I had to laugh at myself because I realized I’m still a child in some ways.  (Actually, many ways, but let’s focus on one thing at a time. . .)  People — like my parents — have said that the cure to a picky eater is simple: They choose to eat what you give them, or eventually they’ll get hungry and will eat what’s available.  Today I felt into one of those “There’s nothing to eat!” episodes, staring despondently at the emptying freezer and fridge.  Translation: There’s nothing snack-y or ready made for me to eat.  Thankfully reasoning kicked in, and I took a deeper look at what was available.  I finished the leftover soup Then, I pulled out the leftover broccoli stems (I’d used the heads for salad), cut off the questionable parts, and chopped the rest into chips that I doused in olive oil and set to bake in the oven.  Then I rescued some strawberries, cutting of the squishy and moldy parts and getting that satisfying snack I was craving.  Satisfied my hunger and cleaned out more of the fridge.  Bonus!  . . .  And just now Brian came home with some leftover strawberry cheesecake ice cream cake — Holy cow, it must be Christmas! 🙂

Where Do I Go From Here?

Sometimes it’s good to take that look back on your life and try to find the thread that ties all of the pieces together, so you can see your growth and not beat yourself up over your “failure”s.  Fore example, I like to beat myself up over studying education.  I often ruminate over that talk with my college counselor, when she called me into her office, and I confided that I had little idea of what I wanted to do with my life “but I’d thought about maybe teaching.”  I later berated myself for my indecision, for going along with what I thought I was “supposed to do” and not going for what I wanted to do.  “Look at me now!” I’d say.  “I’m working in a warehouse!”  “Where did that education  actually get me?”  But as I turn around and take a panoramic view of my situation, I begin to see some things.

First of all, where did that idea for teaching come from?  It was not a strong urge, but the notion came from somewhere.  I’d remembered playing teacher as a child.  I knew I loved to learn.  Maybe classroom teaching didn’t turn out to be the love of my life, but there was something that about teaching that had gotten my attention, and I believe it was my intuition.  I knew I had an urge to learn, and I knew I had an urge to teach.  I was on the right track.

Second, I have been blessed because of teaching.  If it weren’t for teaching, I likely wouldn’t have the house I have now.  Thus, I’m not sure if I would have met Brian.  I wouldn’t have met my wonderful colleagues, who I try to keep in touch with.  I wouldn’t have had the beautiful memories I’ve had of past students and fun experiences.

Third, I’ve learned some useful skill from teaching.  I’ve improved my communication skills, I’ve felt more comfortable giving lectures and presenting material.   I’ve learned how to problem-solve.  I’ve come to recognize and appreciate my patience, and I kept up my Spanish.

Finally — I am still teaching. When I quit teaching I stopped calling myself a “teacher.”  I my eyes, I was done.  But I’m really still teaching all of the time.  I’ve changed paths, but it’s the same road.  I tutor, I teach metaphysics classes, I’m considering starting preschool enrichment classes, and I teach whoever wishes to hear — whether it be through this blog, through social interactions, through Facebook, or through my example.  I am a teacher.  I was meant to be a teacher, and I knew it, though I didn’t know it.  The soul knows what it wants.

And, so, I’ve decided I need to shut up for a while.  Because I know.  Even as I cry out for clarification, afraid that I will be lost forever, my soul knows.  It’s just waiting me to be quiet for a moment and stay still enough to listen.

Control Freak?

I’ve been thinking a lot more about my most recent intuitive report, the Past Life Crossing.  I just shared it at a SIR (Society for Intuitive Research) meeting that focused on past life crossings.  I haven’t delved into this report as much as I have for my other intuitive reports — my Past Life and Health Analysis.  This particular report — the crossing — hadn’t resonated with me as much, and as it was a report I shared with Brian — who wasn’t sure how much he was into it, I didn’t put my full attention into it. However, I’ve begun noticing a few things.

First, that in that past life I’d been a caretaker of children.  I didn’t think that was a big deal, except that I’ve likely had many, many lifetimes doing many different things, and in this one I happened to be working with children.  Was that a message for me, a person considering working as a nanny or trying out preschool?

Also, the report drew my attention to my desire to “throw down anchors.”  I am frequently attempting to stabilize by trying to control my environment.  My report advised that this wasn’t useful, especially as it related to other people.  I can find centeredness — “control” — by aligning within myself.  Be still and find peace within, and the without will match.

I’ve been noticing more lately the judgements that surface in my thoughts and the frustrations I experience when people don’t act or respond in a certain way.  From an objective standpoint I can see how ridiculous this is — I cannot control other people!  I will find happiness by aligning with my own goals and purposes.  Beyond that I must keep the conduit of my heart open at all times, sharing love with all, attracting those who want to receive what I have to offer, and sharing of what I have to give.

I’m interested to see how I work through this lesson in the couple of weeks. . .

Why I Received This

I had an epiphany Friday morning when I was outside doing my exercises.  I was thinking about karma and situations the universe sends to me/I’ve sent to myself.  I was thinking about how one of the doctors of the school told my teacher that if someone was self-critical it meant that they needed that criticism.  I didn’t understand.  I thought I did.  I feared karma, and I struggled with the brutality of my inner thoughts.  Then Friday morning something clicked.  It’s all about love.  Why are we here?  We are here with a soul purpose.  And in each lifetime we seek to advance to be that much closer to enlightenment than we were before.  We are hear to learn and to grow.  Experiencing the same repeating, awkward, and uncomfortable situation is not punishment.  Recognizing areas of weakness is not meant to be for belittlement and derision.  It all comes from love.  Because someone who really loves someone hopes for — desires — the best for that entity.  And the best a person can do is continually change, continually grow.  To live and learn and benefit from every life experience.

So, that same lesson is not coming back again because my soul yearns for it, and the universe is on board.  I am recognizing areas for change because my soul sees an ideal and what’s me to be aware of what I need to be to reach it.  So, I will receive each loving gift.  Even if I do not at first appreciate its value, I will not return it.
