Patio Bliss

I just spent the last minutes of my evening under a canopy of twinkle lights. We put them up over the front patio today. It took $26 for the pole and eyebolts at the top, 30 min to set the pole, and about an hour climbing up an down the ladder. It is blissful. Nathan just went in to start his dialysis treatment and I’m going to do my meditation before going in.

May you have peaceful and blissful experiences in/at your home. May you love your days mostly. May you have excellent meditation moments. May you find things to appreciate easily.

Om Shanti

Storm damage.

I tried to take my usual walk around the pond between shifts and trees were downed from last night’s storm.

I climbed over and around 3 of them to lose to the 4th because of too plentiful poison ivy. I’m already treating a large patch of poison oak on my arm from Katherine having brought me a leaf and smearing it on the inside of my elbow. I just didn’t want to risk another large patch of itchy rash.

Anyway, since I couldn’t do my normal laps of  walking, I took a bunch of pictures, including a whole bunch of pictures of the Great Blue Heron which has returned to the pond for this season. There is also a Green Heron but I couldn’t get close enough to it for pictures, last week I managed a couple of blurry ones. I tried to catch fish in my pictures but the water has darkened and I don’t think I caught them very well. Last week I caught a few fish, so I’ll post both rounds of pictures. I was buzzed by a Vulture several times and caught it in one of the Heron pictures, it was really a good albeit exercise free lunch break.

Then I went to work early to sit on their pub patio which has a wonderful overhang for shade. I watched a mother Red House Finch feed her babies. There were 4 nests in view, but only one momma was brave enough to visit with me sitting watching. It was a good relaxing moment.

May you have good bird watching and time in nature. May you be blessed with awe and wonder of all the beautiful creatures around us. May you have good relaxing moments and enjoy the weather as much as possible. May you have good days mostly.

Om Shanti

Last week:

This week:

Live or Give In.

Sadhguru has been telling people for a long time to do what you love, that it is vital to life. Others have echoed that in different words, and Abraham Hicks’ entire message is essentially that.

Today I had the sense of that dark destructive force trying to drown me, and I was finally able to pull up by focusing on the fact that I was helping people, so much so that I had yet another referral on my table.

I got a clear picture that having slipped into thoughts of unwanted was literally draining my life force. Focusing on my accomplishment enabled me to draw my lifeforce back. It was the gate to giving myself energy to keep going, then I was able to focus on feeling better and more healing.

I went through a moment of anger over the darkness and how dare it do that, but ultimately that is still giving some of my power away- more letting it be taken from me.

I then thought of several in my life struggling to live. Some of them are going through very difficult challenges and have slipped so far that they are physically incapable of doing things they love. Others are doing their best to keep going.

I had a keen sense that if they have already lost the ability to do things they enjoy and love, then it would be easier on them to just give in and let go. It would starve the darkness of their input.

But those of us that can still participate and do things we love, must step up our game.

We almost have to exhaust ourselves doing all the things we enjoy to get through this time period. We are in the middle of a massive shift and the divine is doing it’s best to ensure those of us that live have something to live for. But we have to be equally invested in that change to make it through.

Doing things you enjoy and love, helps life force flow through your body. That life force will not just keep you living, it will also heal you from everything, given a proper chance. It is literally vital to keep reaching and doing everything that brings you positive feelings. If you don’t reach for better enough, IT will eventually drag you under.

I know that I personally want to live, so my focus is renewed and I will simply refuse to keep doing anything that drags me down. I am determined to heal myself and my family.

As for those that have already passed the point of no return, and you can’t participate and do things anymore, I’m sorry. I know it is scary because I’m fighting myself, my husband is fighting too. But if you know you’ve already lost the battle, then at least be kind enough to yourself to let go completely. It will ease your experience and help God to starve the darkness.

Just let go.

May you know for certain which side of the fence you are on. May you be able to reach for better either way. May you have reasons to live and participate in life and may you find all of them extremely revitalizing. May you know that God loves and supports you in all that you do.

Om Shanti
