With Confidence

             While I definitely believe in the “if you don’t like it, change it” theory.  I also have to wear this body and live in the real world.

             There’s just been a wee bit too much REALITY in my life the past week.  Sometimes I find it difficult to manage.  I become overwhelmed with it all.

             This is where my being a person of great faith comes in quite handy.  I know, with all of my whole and entire self that where we are, on this planet, in this plane of education, is truly just a stopping-over point.  I know, with all that I am, that we will get to go Home (eventually).

             Here is where this one took me, here is the word that rang out the loudest:


             The Universe brings us reminders:  rainbows after a cleansing storm, babies after hard labor, presents we didn’t expect.

             The gifts are there, the messages being delivered, it’s our job to find them, to decipher them, to accept them, to receive them.  To be grateful for them.

             Often we struggle.  And that’s part of the process, too.  But in the end, we heal.  Sure, we sometimes go on to cycle around and have similar challenges.  That is another level of our lesson, spiraling ever upwards in our quest for Improvement.

             The WAY we learn, the WAY we manage, that’s key.  That’s where we are better able to see our path, to use our tools, and find the peace we seek.

             I was directed to this lovely validation.  When turmoil seems never-ending, we must remember that the solution will always arrive.

“I am at Peace

Divine peace and harmony surround me and dwell in me.

I feel tolerance, compassion, and love for all, myself included.”

             At our own discretion, obviously.  Some folks maybe don’t warrant any kindness, currently.  But, WE sure do!  (And I, personally, am entirely at Peace with my decision to grant compassion where I see fit.)

Relief and Calm

             What do we do when we are overwhelmed?  When we are feeling terrible but think we have no control?  Where do we turn?

             This morning I was shown a series of events, none of them could be described as good or enjoyable.  All were viewed from a different perspective, all challenging and uncomfortable.

             But ya know what?  I also was able to tolerate the emotions.  And that’s our message.

Simple and Clear

             We can get through it.  We are capable and healthy.  We do know how to survive (and even thrive).  Our strength is evident.

             Not only do we have an inner power of our very own, as we saw yesterday we also have support.  We need never go through difficulties alone.

             The trick is to bring our situation down to its most simple and solvable components.  (The Deputy and I went through this exact process earlier today, as we chatted in the office of **A** [my beloved mental health professional].  Talk about a problem-solver!)

             The Universe is saying the same thing.  What is the issue, in the most clear terms possible?  Then, what is a way to solve it?

             Ask around.  Get second opinions.  Think it through.  Examine it.  View all sides and angles.  Let it go.

             Our daily draw reminds us that when we feel like the journey is too much work, when we are struggling with particular problems, we can always turn to our loved ones for help.  (Even if they might be the ones we think need assistance.)


“Angel Of Families  ~

‘The Angels surround both you and your family at the moment.’

Do not worry about your loved ones for all will work out.  The angels surround you and your family at this time.  

Feel their love and light and know that both you and your loved ones are forever held in the eternal embrace of love.  Surrender your fears and any concerns you may have for your family, friends, an individual family member, or a loved one to the angels and know that the situation is being healed and transformed right now.

Gently close your eyes.  Feel and visualize those you love being bathed in light and love.  Imagine beams of love emanating from your heart and mind, infusing and surrounding each family member and loved one with beautiful healing energy.

In turn, feel the light and love they emanate to you in return and thank the angels for their assistance.”

Today’s Recommendation:

is something to make that angel meditation easier.  And it won’t cost a dime. (Well, it might cost 99 pennies, but possibly not.)

             You’ve heard me harp on and on about the benefits of guided meditation, so I won’t go there.  But I do want to mention another option.  Phone apps!

             But wait, what if you don’t have a fancy-pants wee cellular device?  Well, do you have a computer?  Or an MP3?  Or a tablet?  These programs can be downloaded on any and all machines.

             The ones I’ve found are mostly free.  But there are some with a one-time cost, usually less than a dollar.   Some come with timers, so you can listen to falling water, singing bowls, ocean waves, soothing gongs, and/or wind chimes without concern for being late, or over-resting.

             Practice some self-care, carve out 3 quick minutes.  Sit calm and still, nourish yourself with nature.  Either really outside or indoors with some electronic help.  You’re worth it.
