What Came to Me Today

“I know this. When this ends – AND IT WILL – every game will sell out, every restaurant will have a 2-hour wait, every kid will be glad to be in school, everyone will love their job, the stock market will skyrocket, every other house will get TP’d, and we’ll all embrace and shake hands. That’s gonna be a pretty good day. Hang in there, World.”

I read this quote this morning that made some inspirational sense. Hopefully this will happen, but I’d like to add some more to this, however, as I have a strong feeling and actually pray that we all may come through this challenge having learned much more about our true nature, our desire to be connected to ourselves and each other from love and not separation. That we, the people of the world, can find something within us that brings the world together in love and peace and the senseless suffering of people can stop.

My prayer has many facets. First is that I hope the world can come to realize gratitude. One of my favorite quotes is “Gratitude is the open door to abundance”. And I know that might not be easy for some as life circumstances seem rather dismal for many right now. But there is always something to be grateful for and even the tiniest thing that you find can open the door to abundance of peace, love and calm.

I hope that we all find a very deep and lasting knowing that wee are all one, the same heart, the same longings, the same desire for love. Maybe this challenge we all face right now can pour more light and love, compassion and friendship into the world. I have such a hope that maybe this pandemic, where the entire world is experiencing the same difficulty, can end with more peace. Peace within each person, peace in relationships, peace in families, peace in cities, peace in countries.

I hope that everyone can take the time right now to slow down internally. It’s an uncertain time. I hope that each of you can take time each day to sit quietly and go within and reach a space of calm. That you trust how it is you are pulled to meditate-whether it’s through breathwork, through putting on music that moves you and letting go to the music, through quiet meditation. I meditate in different ways, but now that I am not distracted by much of the outside environment while I am social distancing, I have rekindled my practices and am finding time to meditate twice a day. Sometimes it’s for 10 minutes, sometimes for an hour. I can say it is helping me stay calmer and accept what’s happening. It really is helping me when I through times of anxiety and fear of the unknown along with the deep feelings that arise in my heart that make me cry as I have concern for everyone.

I send you all love.

Been on Vacation-sort of!

Well, it’s been a while since sitting down in front of my computer to write. I did take a vacation, however, and then forgot to get back into my daily writing. Good thing I didn’t make a commitment to write every day in case this would happen.

In February we traveled to a place called Yelapa, Mexico. A flight to Puerto Vallarta and then a 45 boat taxi ride to this small bay/cove along the coast of Mexico right up against the jungle. What a place to vacation-if you like being secluded from city life, crowds, and cars. Walking everywhere on cobblestone walkways about 20′ from the beach. Getting to experience a genuine Mexican village and how people live there. Until about 20 years ago there was no running water or electricity. We had a wonderful, relaxing, meditative time for 9 days.

Life for the world has change dramatically since then due to the Covid-19 and the worldwide shutdown. Where now we get to experience another adventure (and even possibly label it as a staycation in our homes). We all get to figure out how to weather this storm. I’m catching up some things – like getting paperwork and files in order, taking care of taxes, cleaning the garage and rearranging cabinets in the house. Gratefully we have a growing dome and vegetable garden so we get to play in the garden. We live outside the main city, bumped up right against the foothills of the Rocky Mountains so we have the opportunity to go out and hike. I like to just put on my shoes and go for a couple mile walk just around my neighborhood. Fun things to do-play games, watch movies and bing some favorite shows, work on puzzles, give each other a massage, write letters or call friends that I’ve wanted to for so long, take naps, meditate more often, and I’ve even starting putting on some music that moves me and I’m dancing and exercising. Great time to get in shape.

I hope that in the midst of this worldwide situation you can find a way to make the best of what life is handing you right now. That you can find a peaceful and enjoyable time to spend your days, with yourself, your partner, your kids. It can really be a time for great bonding and a time for less busyness in your life.

Take care and I pray that we will come through this with a newfound connection to mankind-that more and more people begin to realize we are all one, we have the same hearts and the same desire to love.

Light at the end of the tunnel

There is light at the end of the tunnel. Sometimes the tunnel seems deep, dark, and long even if being in that space only lasts a day. In that tunnel the mind can be very bothersome as it conjures up so many stories and scenarios as we face ourselves and the situations in our lives that need attention.

I’ve found how important it is to recognize the ego part of my mind and the part of my mind that is my friend and is trying to give me information as to how to move forward into more clarity, realization and understanding. Not sure I could experience the depth and breakthrough that comes after diving into these places without meditation. To give myself time to rest in the silence.

I meditate in a number of ways, all are so helpful. I love the silence of meditation and I love breathwork! Each take me beyond the mind and help so much as life unfolds.

There is a light at the end of the tunnel. Sometimes it doesn’t seem like it, but we always do come through to the other side with more understanding, awareness, clarity, heart opening love.

Remember to take time each day to focus on your breath. breathe in, breathe out, breathe in breathe out. Focusing on your breath even for 1 minutes brings one back to the present moment, melts away what is bothering oneself and clears the space to be open, relaxed, and less burdened by the mind.
