Happy Hugs – Helping Us Grow Spiritually

A year ago today I posted my very first blog and I am bubbling with excitement at the prospect of another year yet to unfold.  This journeying is truly amazing and I have profound gratitude in being a part of this shift in mindfulness, awakening and awareness.  I am sending each of you the happiest of hugs for being a part of this journey with me.  Some of you I have met personally and others I have met etherically and every meeting has left me feeling more inspired than I ever dreamed possible!

With all the preparation that goes into launching a new website and blog, I overlooked the synchronicity in the date of February 28th.  This day was my maternal Grandmother’s first day of emerging into physical form and she would have been celebrating her 108th birthday.  My Grandma always hugged me; she would hug me in a way that always made me feel wonderful and I would breathe in her special Grandma fragrance that I loved so much.  Whenever I find myself feeling hesitant, I just close my eyes and inhale my grandmother’s energies and I immediately feel a sense of serenity and steadiness.

I have frequently been given the clear impression that the upcoming year will be very exciting as we come to deeper understandings about our personal power, choices, and most of all compassion.  Maintaining our equilibrium will be fundamental as we continue to raise our vibrational thoughts and emotions.  This is a lot of personal responsibility but we actively chose this pathway – yes, we did!

We come to this earth school as an apprentice and then evolve as a teacher.  We learn who we really are; a Soul infused with Love living in a physical form having an earth bound experience.  Then, we awaken and remember the truth of our magnificence and once awakened, we teach our life experience to others through our expressions of understanding and compassion.

Remember, all your choices are part of the journey so why not wrap yourself in a beautiful blanket of self worth, hug someone and celebrate your Beingness – you are awesomeness happening!

Sending you big happy Hugs (Helping Us Grow Spiritually) filled with Love!

Panning the Sands

As our experience of being source energy in physical form continues, it is more essential than ever that we shine our Love lights brighter so that those that may be lost or confused can rediscover their path.

It takes focus, desire, energy, purpose and Love to continue to light the way. Light workers and way-showers are aware of the need to replenish their energies and nourish their inner selves; observe them, they generally are not standing in the lime light, rather they are gently and steadfastly encouraging from the sidelines.

As our journey continues to unfold, we are being given the awareness and higher understanding of our earth school lessons.  How well did we Love?  How kind were we with ourselves and with others?  How often did we lovingly embrace the most challenging experiences with the wisdom that we planned it this way?

Many are burdened with fear, and clinging to it with the belief that their fears are imminently going to manifest, and they rapidly become perceptibly crippled with this dense energy.  If they could only pan their energy field and release what no longer serves them, they would regain their natural state of wellbeing.

Releasing the emotion of the experience but retaining the lesson is paramount.  This would be equivalent to panning the sands, discovering the gold and releasing the old (the rocks, the dirt, the dust).  In panning our own sands, we are given the gift of sifting through our memories and choosing how we learned and grew throughout challenging and inspiring experiences.

As I panned my own sands, these thoughts came sifting though, so I will share them with you:

  • How can I make myself more available to the insights and guidance that support me, in physical and nonphysical ways?
  • How can I be of better service to others?
  • How can I ensure greater emotional fulfillment in my journey?
  • How can I deepen my empathetic awareness of the process of change?
  • How can I create more abundantly?
  • How can I transcend my imaginings?
  • How can I shine my light with greater compassion?
  • How can I stay closer to my authentic nature of joyfulness?

Each time that I ask any of these questions, I wait peacefully, and the answers are continuously given. Create the space and in-joy panning the sands; you will be amazed at the truths that you will re-discover!

Sending you big hugs filled with Love!

Welcome To The Club

I have noticed that I’m losing my memory – there, I said it.  Now my children should be very afraid which ones I may choose to come and live with (if I can remember).  But in all seriousness, the kind of memory loss that I’m talking about is becoming very prevalent, so I know I’m not alone in this experience.

A few weeks ago, I had pre-ordered two dozen bagels at my favourite bakery-café.  The bakery called to tell me that my order was ready and I told them I’d be right over to pick it up.  When I arrived, the lady at the counter recognized me and said, “two dozen right?” and I said “no, 24.”  She just looked at me kind of strangely and again said, “two dozen right?” and again I said, “no, 24.”  Now, I was wondering why she kept asking me the same question and I kept giving her the same answer.

All of a sudden I heard some giggling coming from behind me and there were two sweet wise ladies sitting in their usual place at the bakery-café and they said, “Welcome to the club.”  Oh my goodness, the lights went on in my head and I turned to the lady behind the bakery counter and burst out laughing.  I received my order and half-embarrassedly and half-laughing went out to my car.  Then I remembered that I forgot to pay!!  So back in I went and then a fun discussion ensued as to how even the lady behind the counter at the bakery forgot that I hadn’t paid.

I had heard that this kind of forgetfulness would be coming to humanity and I am now becoming more and more aware of it happening on a regular basis.  This makes perfect sense when you combine this with the awareness of shifting in consciousness as the old pathways are disappearing from our awareness.  We cannot rely on the past to make future choices, as the past is quickly disappearing from our reality and the ability to determine where we are going based on where we’ve been is soon not going to be a choice.

The opportunities to choose new thoughts and choices – who knew?

These opportunities are available to us as long as we do not look back at where we were, or look at what we don’t have, or hold onto the fears of the past.  We are now in a powerful place of thinking from wellbeing, and in doing so, our choices will begin to manifest almost immediately.  This is also something that I have noticed is happening on a regular basis.  I no sooner think of someone or something and they, or it, almost instantly appear!  The understanding that synchronicity does not exist was explained to me by my guides.  The word synchronicity is a simply a way to discredit the power that we truly have to manifest our heart’s desires.  We had been conditioned to disbelieve in our power and dismiss our creativeness and call them co-incidences or synchronicities – talk about insulting ourselves!

I’m feeling that releasing the past and staying open to the present is an amazing opportunity to choose our path.  This allows us to take a breath and proceed with knowledge that all we can imagine is possible (yes, there will be major disruptions in how life used to be as the old beliefs, paradigms, behaviours are falling apart and falling away – all part of releasing the past).

How we perceive change (CHANGEClearing Healing And New Gifts Emerging) is how we perceive our world.  If we see change as foreboding or if we see change as opportunistic will determine how effortlessly we manage the inevitability of change.  We are changing from old beliefs to newly created understandings.  I saw this quote the other day and I thought it was perfect for where we’re all at  – “Fall in love with who are becoming and the world will reflect this back to you in the people and experiences you attract.”

Choose to uplift others and know that compassion is the recognition that we are each doing the best we can within the limits of our current beliefs and capacities. The more loving, kindness and forgiveness you give to yourself, the more you can give to others.  And most of all, remember to Love one another and welcome each other to the Club!

Sending you big hugs filled with Love!

Getting Our Shift Together

This morning I had what I call a dreamscape transfer.  What I am describing is a state where I am not completely awake but I am definitely not asleep either.  When this happens, I receive a lot of information that I recall and I am guided to share in a mindful way.  There is something very palpable going on where the seen world meets the unseen world, and anyone with any sensitivity is picking up on it.

Initially, I heard the words “we are here to help one another awaken to the truth of who we really are, Love.”  I was then shown that we are in a very active transition stage and this means shifting from one place to another.  For all of us, this is an emotional and intellectual transition and for some it will also include a physical transition or relocation.  Of course, when we are in transition, we are shifting, and in doing so, many of the longstanding “systems” will fall apart.  This is natural and to be expected and not feared – we are moving from the old to the new and excitement is abundant!

When you think of times that you have moved from one home to another, there was a total dismantling of your stuff, sorting through what you needed and wanted and what you didn’t, packing up and then unpacking and re-sorting again (this is an analogy to what many are and will be experiencing).  Remember that thinking from a perspective of gratefulness and appreciation will make the transition process much easier.

The past year was like having new software slowly downloaded to us and now we have restarted ourselves and we are stepping into the new with all the updates in place.  Now is the time for us to explore our newfound understandings, our truth of Love and of compassion and of allowing.  We are transitioning to full consciousness, to full potential and unlimited possibilities that will facilitate bringing us to being who we always were, and, really are – Love.

We are stepping into extraordinary times and letting go of our habits and old ways of behaving. Miracles will unfold and be a common occurrence as we are now in a new paradigm, a new way of beingness.

What does extraordinary times and a new way of beingness look like?  Well, in a sense, gratitude and gift giving are becoming the norm and conscious awareness is standard behaviour. Changes will be everywhere and kindness and compassion will flourish with our desire to accommodate the needs of others.

All the knowing that you need to know is in your heart; it is coded in your heart on a cellular level, a vibrational level and an intuitive level.

This is where you can bring in the yet unimagined opportunities to you as you move forward.  Choose new thoughts and new choices – a friend of mine is getting ready to have her second knee replacement surgery and rather than being despondent or discouraged, she has chosen to focus on being pain free with matching knees and matching scars!

Love yourself, appreciate yourself and find gratitude for who you are, spiritually, mentally, emotionally, intellectually and physically – appreciate the little things about yourself and these little things will become big things in the big picture.

In-joy getting your shift together, it is an amazing opportunity to be present and participating!

Sending you big hugs filled with Love!

Whispers of Gratitude

2013 is complete and what a journey it was!  The month of December was a magnificent completion to a year filled with lessons and profound understandings.  I felt a powerful shift take place and many life lessons were presented for me to review.  The review was something like looking over final exams once your teachers have assessed them.

Some of my lessons were acquired and integrated easier than others, and the ones that weren’t, well, let’s just say that they took some time to process.  A few reviews were filled with giggles and enthusiasm and then there were a few that were filled with tears.  Either way, the main themes that I was presented with were acceptance and letting go.  The last remnants of letting go were the most challenging and the intricacies of the challenge were recognizing the conditioning and beliefs of hanging on.

As a culture we have been taught that letting go means the end, but we were not taught about letting in which means new beginnings.  When we release old thoughts, beliefs and behaviours, there comes a powerful shifting energy.  This energy is exhilarating and helps us to shake out all of the old cobb-webby ways.

I was so grateful to be guided to relax and get into the flow of the stream of all that is, was and ever will be.  As spiritual beings in human forms, we need to remind ourselves that we are only visitors and our presence here is temporary.  We might as well be joyful and happy, as that is our true nature – we came from Love, we are Love and we will return to Love.

Now I totally understand why my guides had me dial back my energies; I needed to re-view, re-new, re-charge and re-member!  I feel that I have energetically gone through the eye of the needle and made it through to the other side.  I am deeply grateful for my life experiences; the wonderful and not so wonderful, as each and every moment has coalesced into this magnificent expression of Now.  I was shown that the past will lose its hold on our attention, that we will leave behind crisis consciousness and embrace our new beginnings and transformations while remembering that we are here to be of service to others and keeping our hearts open.  Oh so worth all the inner work that was fulfilled!!

This is exactly where we’re supposed to be in this journey.  Letting go of what no longer serves us and remembering during the process of letting go, that if we fight or push against the process, we will become that same vibrational frequency and attract more of it.  Accept the experience, embrace it and then release it.

As we journey along our path of acquiring wisdom, the awareness that is brought to us will bring us even closer to continually being aware of our thoughts and emotions.  We will continue to increase our awareness and awakening to encompass an even deeper level of compassion and understanding of others and ourselves.

So, we are in some really interesting times now, and such an incredible time to be alive and here on this planet.  This upcoming year is going to be filled with more and more people experiencing awakenings and awareness to possibilities and events that they never dreamed possible. I am so very excited about what is coming up for everyone!

Profound whispers of gratitude to each and every one of you – you continue to inspire me more than you will ever know.

That’s When We All Win

As we continue our journey home, there is one thing that is so important to remember and that’s that we are all in this journey together and we must stand together.  As more and more magnificent beings awaken we must share our experiences and compassion, not expectations and criticisms.  Not one of us is exempt from experiencing an awakening, and remember there was a time when you too were slumbering throughout your day – smile!

One of the biggest challenges is to keep your bearings while others are loosing theirs – stay focused, breathe, stay calm.  Sometimes the experience is not understood by the mind but the heart knows, the heart understands and recognizes the expansion of inner knowing and that’s when we all win.  We all win when we acknowledge that we’ve had enough of restricting ourselves, and shift into expanding ourselves to being the magnificent creators that we truly are.

The awakening of consciousness has no limits and we are becoming aware of becoming aware.  This is something that we’ve been waiting for and planned to be here as aware and active participants for this grand journeying!  Trusting in your inner guidance that is very much alive and communicating with you – you will find yourself responding unconditionally from your heart and acting from the wisdom of your soul.

I came across this video a while ago, and then again twice yesterday in two different places and now it just keeps playing in my head, so this is always a reminder for me that I have to share this with you.  Please take the time to watch this, turn up the volume, watch the images, read the words and then play it again and again …

We are part of a very, very, long journey; be of service to others rather than service to self, and love unconditionally, hand in hand together, that’s when we all win!

Leaving you with peace, love, understanding, awareness and wisdom (and of course, big hugs and butterfly kisses).

Sequestered – Heart Speak

One of the most common statements that I have become aware of lately is that people are expressing that they feel so alone and out of touch with the world that they once new.  Their friends, activities, behaviours, career and sometimes their families and partners just don’t seem to resonate with them any longer, and the very idea of “normal” just seems like a distant memory.  To my spiritual ears, this is the greatest news; I know, you might think this is a little crazy, but let me explain.

The awakening that is taking place is gaining in momentum and more and more people are recognizing that their hearts and minds weren’t harmonizing.  This contrast led them to acknowledge that something had to go – either they were going to numb themselves and no longer listen to their programmed mind-thoughts and operate like an automaton or they were going to open up, get honest with themselves and others by listening with their hearts and acting from the wisdom of their souls.

For those that have chosen to numb their mind-thoughts, they can rest assured that sooner than later that they will come back to welcoming and accepting their truth. The journey of awakening requires a committed energy to stay the course; dedication in allowing yourself to grow in compassion and forgiveness are key to your freedom.

The pivoting point in the awakening is recognizing that you can no longer demand acceptance, validation and support from those outside of you and stand fully in the truth of your very being.  Those outside of you are simply living their journey and doing the best they can – it is time to walk your talk from your heart and soul.

The other day I was wondering how to clearly express what happens when the heart and mind are not in alignment and I was shown a quotation on cognitive dissonance by the late, but ahead of his time, Frantz Fanon (he was a combination of psychiatrist, philosopher, revolutionary and writer) – “Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong.  When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted.  It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance.  And, because it is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that doesn’t fit in with the core belief.”

So, being stuck in mind-thoughts and not listening to the heart-thoughts creates a cosmic conflict type of scenario.  When the head is going in one direction and the heart in another, that is a perfect example of split energy.  When this type of situation occurs, you will begin to feel energetically drained on all levels and the universe will help to place you into a situation were you will need to take some time and re-examine your thoughts and actions.  This is where illnesses and accidents unfold unless we pay attention and take time to self-enquire and reflect.  Remember it’s more about what happens within you than it is about what happens around you.  The treasure of you, the authentic you, the Love you, is found within.

Self-awareness, self-reflection, self-knowledge, self-care and self-love, are really where it’s at.  Once this has developed to be a part of your every day thoughts, your heart-thoughts and mind-thoughts begin to coalesce; you will experience ease and flow in your journey.  You will then initiate a vibrational signal that will instantly attract you to others that had also been sequestered but are now in alignment (head and heart).  They will have initiated their heart speak and self love practices as well.

This entire process can take time or it can happen quickly and every one of us has everything we need to catalyze the changes in our own lives; it’s taking ourselves seriously that matters most. The passion and awareness within each of us is being ignited, a sharing, a connection from one heart to another, a giving and receiving.  Like a spark within the heart, let your love grow.  Remember, letting go of what no longer serves you will allow what you need to arrive in perfect timing.

Leaving you with peace, love, understanding, awareness and wisdom (and of course, big hugs and butterfly kisses).

Cleaning Up

I don’t know about you, but over the past few weeks I have been experiencing some very intense energies.  This experience has felt as if I was putting my spiritual self into one of those old style washing machines that came with a wringer to squeeze out any left over water.  When I was a little girl, I was fascinated watching my mother washing and working the clothes through one of these machines.  It was a bit of an intimidating machine because I remember always being told to be careful to not get too close to the wringer because it could (and would) take your hand and arm right on into it.  My childhood friend Barry didn’t pay attention to what his mother told him and ended up with a cast on his arm for a long time.

If we think of our spiritual self like a blanket, consider your blanket having just been placed into the old style clothes washing machine and now going through the squeeze-wringer.  So, in goes your spiritual blanket for a good washing and wringing out, and then placed on the line to relax and dry in the sunshine for a while.

What did you do while your blanket was in the wash?  It was an opportunity to take a good inner look at ourselves; some people chose to manifest an illness or an injury to ensure that they had down time, while others chose to utilize the time for self enquiry and inner reflection.

What seemed to be a prevalent experience was that just when our spiritual blanket was nice and dry and ready to come inside from being on the line to dry, the weather suddenly changed and a storm came up and gave it a good soaking again.

Ah, so then your spiritual blanket had to literally drip dry (but not to worry because your blanket wasn’t the only blanket on the line – you and many other souls had their blankets washed, wrung out, dried, re-soaked and re-dried).

These intense energies have been about letting go of what no longer serves us (washing out those stains and spots on our blanket).  Most of the spots were about our conditioning to fit in, to find “normal” and to be accepted by the world outside of us. The truth of the matter is, we need to love and accept ourselves first, from freckles to farts; all parts of us are important and needed.  The necessity to get our spiritual blanket cleaned up is getting more and more important (winter is coming, so you might as well wrap yourself up in a sparkling clean blanket of pure magnificence – you are worthy!)

We are in a time of truth and coming clean, so ready or not, here it comes!  Changes and shifts in consciousness are now beginning to accelerate.  Releasing the stressful search for perfection and embracing the perfection that we already are is a big part of our spiritual blanket washing.

The media has been reminding us to come clean by regularly telling us about a mayor being placed under scrutiny with his spiritual blanket for everyone to see.  He has apparently been filmed admitting to be willing to do it in his underwear …  that sure took a lot of courage, and I don’t think this was his conscious choice, but rather his blanket coming out for a good revealing and cleaning!  Most of us are fortunate enough to not have our activities placed in view of millions of people.

There seems to have been an intensity to these energies, a sense of hurriedness to get any and all spots out of our spiritual blankets.  In getting them cleaned up, we have learned that letting go is also a big part of the learning process, and sometimes not necessarily something we were ready for on a conscious level, but it was unavoidable none-the-less.  Don’t be afraid to let go and to keep letting go – after all, you don’t want a stained blanket around you.

This cleaning up process is part of our spiritual self-care; it is not a luxury, rather it is part our inevitable soul growth, allowing our wellbeing on all levels to shine.

The other day while I was waiting for my spiritual blanket to finish drying I came across this timely quote: “Each time a person awakens to universal truth, the whole of humanity rises in resonance.  The higher humanity evolves as a collective soul, the more important it is to make sure that every aspect is in alignment.”

My spiritual blanket is cleaned up and I am snuggled back in (for now)!

Leaving you with peace, love, understanding, awareness and wisdom (and of course, big hugs and butterfly kisses).

Soul Growth

Authentic soul growth happens when you can take a good look at your life experiences and honestly say to yourself “yes, that was me, I did that and I have transitioned and grown through the experience.”

Taking ownership for your experiences and participation doesn’t mean drowning yourself in guilt, or dipping yourself in glory, but rather taking an observer’s point of view of the highlights and lowlights of your journey.

The lowlights were actually the more powerful soul growth moments; they were likely the most uncomfortable, challenging and life path altering lessons.  Those were the moments when you truly asked for help, and you meant it.  Maybe you asked for a sign (that’s always a sign when you ask for one).  Maybe you called on all the saints and sinners that you knew of, maybe you decided you’d had enough and chose different options, and then again, maybe you chose to just let go and observe.

The highlights were the reaching of the pinnacle, the new horizons, the new launching of lessons and charting of the journey.  It’s always a good place to be ready to receive, perhaps it is guidance or maybe it’s a sign, but either way, you’ll know that you’re getting ready for another wave in your journey of soul growth.

Soul growth is also soul searching, looking within and taking the time for self enquiry to consider your choices and discover your inner resources of how much you have learned and where was your Love – powerful realizations!

There are many opportunities for soul growth; they are planned into your blueprint as openings to awakenings.  These awakenings are transformative, this is what soul growth is.  Transformation includes releasing what no longer serves you and it can sometimes be a painful release if you stay attached to it.

Your soul growth and spiritual transformation is very much like the stages of transformation that a caterpillar goes through before becoming a beautiful butterfly.

You can easily determine what stage of transitioning and soul growth you are in during any situation in your life (and there will always be multiple situations/lessons taking place simultaneously).  In taking the approach of butterfly medicine, you can use the following as an example:

If you are becoming mindful of creating or working with an awareness, then you are in the egg stage.  This is the conceptual space, the giving of consideration and thought to your awareness.  You will be questioning your beliefs, what you were taught, thought, and the world around you.

If you are feeling that it is time to make a decision and begin to move forward with your awareness, then you are in the caterpillar stage.  You will be conscious that you are literally inching along, one step at a time, moment by moment, gathering information and details about your path and your purpose.

If you are allowing your awareness (egg stage) and your decision (caterpillar stage) to radiate and become a reality, then you would be in the cocoon stage.  This is where all your efforts will appear to have come to a standstill, yet this is where the deep integration takes place.  It is a time of stillness and trusting in the process (and often times the most challenging yet exciting).

When you are sharing your completed soul growth experience, shining and living your love-truth, then you have transitioned fully into the birth stage, a beautiful butterfly.  The emergence from the cocoon is profound and you will have earned every moment of stepping into your true essence, power and magnificence.

Throughout this process, you will have learned to shift from one level of awareness to another with grace and ease.  Be easy about it, and remember that you are a brilliant expression of infinite intelligence!

Each step of the soul growth experience is repeated and completed by following your heart, instead of following the masses, and by choosing Love, heart-truth and compassion over the norm of conditioning.  While you are still present in physical form, choose heart activating soul growth experiences; make compassion, love and forgiveness a part of your daily life.

Leaving you with peace, love, understanding, awareness and wisdom (and of course, big hugs and butterfly kisses).

No Regrets

It’s not unusual for my guides to wake me up in the morning with a song in my head.  The song will keep playing over and over and over like a broken record until “they” get my undivided attention.  This always results in me either having a profound message for a client or a theme for the day.  And, today’s tune is “No Regrets”  by Tom Cochrane and clearly the theme for today’s blog posting.  Sometimes I feel like there’s a DJ in my head that just won’t stop!

Anyhow, this song’s title of course leads me to share with you some of my early life lessons and I feel that it’s time that we all come to terms with where we’ve been and what we’ve done in our lives.  Personally, I have a collection of experiences in my life that I have named “it was a good idea at the time”.  I don’t think I’m the only one who has a collection either; I think that if we all take a good look at our lives we’ll see that we’ve got a plethora of experiences that we can remember.

My earliest memory of doing something that was a good idea at the time goes back to when I was about 4 years old.  It was a beautiful summer day and my mother was fussing about trying to get my younger sister and me ready to go to a wedding.  I had other plans that day and the number one plan for me was getting into my blow up swimming pool.  For the life of me I searched the backyard and couldn’t find it, so I started asking and then begging my father to get my swimming pool out from wherever it was, blow it up and fill it up.  Of course, my request was flatly denied as we were heading out to a wedding (whatever that was supposed to mean to a four year old little girl!).

So, once my hair was done and my Sunday best dress was on, I was told to stand on the back porch until my sister was ready.  Well, I imagine that lasted for about 2 seconds because standing on the back porch wasn’t one of my better abilities at that point in my life.  I looked around the backyard one more time to see if I could find my elusive blow up swimming pool when an idea came to me, and yes, it was a good idea at the time!!

I decided to put the garden hose in my sandbox and fill it up, and of course, get in.  The fact that I forgot to take off my one and only pretty Sunday best dress didn’t even cross my mind as I was now in heaven and my mission completed; I was in my newly created swimming pool.

It wasn’t too long after I was enjoying myself splashing around in my pool that I heard the words “gitttt in the house” – it was my father.  When my father said “gitttt” with that tone in his voice, well, you’d best be “gitttt-ing” and moving faster than fast!  Well, needless to say my mother wasn’t impressed and was basically totally freaking out because now everyone is ready to go to the wedding and I’m sort of not.

The next thing I remember is that my grandparents showed up and stayed at our house for the day.  I remember my grandmother trying to be stern and my grandfather having a funny grin on his face.  Soon afterwards he set up the sprinkler in the backyard and my playmates came over and we got to run through it (with our bathing suits on – ha!).

What a great day it turned out to be and this became one of my first conscious instances of the universe working with me!  It didn’t seem too much longer after that that I was a teenager and my father was hiring an excavator to put in a real pool in our backyard, and, not much further after that I was a mother with my own children running through the sprinkler.  It’s interesting how life goes on and we continue to have good ideas at the time and then learn and grow from them.

Some great ideas at the time were worth repeating and others, well, not so much.  The time I gave my teacher my friend’s chewy chocolate flavoured chunky dog treats to snack on didn’t end up being such a good idea after all.  It was all fun and games until my friend started barking at the teacher and then the full story came out.  My father got called to the school to pick me up and when we came out of the school’s front door he said “gitttt in the car”.  The universe jumped in again and helped me out because I then came down with the chicken pox and so did my barking friend and we got to play together for a few days while “sequestered” from school.  As time went on and I became a mother, I always had great compassion for all three of my sons’ school teachers.

As a teenager and a young woman, I fell in and out of love, jobs, friendships and fashions many times and always thought my world was possibly coming to an end when things weren’t quite working out like the fairy tales I had been taught to believe in.  But all in all, the universe always supported me and helped me to learn and grow through the experience.  Over time, I have come to terms with my life experiences and understand that I am not to carry any guilt, misgivings and especially any regrets; rather, I am to look deeper with the eyes of compassion, understanding, Love and a good sense of humour.  After all, I have learned that I am still learning, still growing and still experiencing many good ideas at the time!

Leaving you with peace, love, understanding, awareness and wisdom (and of course, big hugs and butterfly kisses).
