Palin for president

Check out my lens on Palin for president. A question one must ask themselves when deciding who to vote for. If something were to happen to McCain, Sarah Palin would become our president.

What do you think of that?

Are you okay with a female president?

Casting Away Shadows




My book of poetry and inspirations.
Some samples from Casting Away Shadows
As Timeless As Creation
Bring joy
To this table
My worn out heart
Tired from
Disappointments
Bad choices
Wrong turns
Accepts
This face
As its own
Bring love
To this room
Mending
What was broken by time
Reconciling false beliefs
With the magic
Of its touch
The softness of its reach
Bring laughter
To this home
Uplifting views
Of serious disdain
Releasing illusions
Inviting life in though
Doors that were closed
By harsher lessons of life
Bring light
In its purest form
The dance of the soul
The flight of the heart
An embrace
As timeless as creation

Casting Away Shadows
The light has come
To cast away the shadows
In time’s remaining hands
All that was left undone
Becomes a finished chore
Dancing into the light
Of remembrance
Of who I am
My sacredness
A key I have turned
Unlocking
My worthiness
With timid hands
That forgot
How to shine
The shadows barely there
Anymore
As they come
Into the light
To merge
Into wholeness

Ho'oponopono

My husband and I absolutely love Hawaii. We have both studied huna. This eventually led us to ho'oponopono and Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len and then to Joe Vitale and his book Zero Limits and his audio of the seminar in Texas with Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len ( pronounced ee-howl-ee-aw-ke-la). We were already practicing ho'oponopono before hearing and reading about them, but after finding them we learned the art of ho'oponopono in more depth and began cleaning more and more.

We have also been on a conference call with Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len and Mabel Katz. It was a great experience.

What is ho'oponopono?

To learn more about this I highly recommend Joe's audio of the Texas seminar and his book Zero Limits.

I will explain briefly.

Ho'oponopono means to make right or perfect state. With ho'oponopono(pronounced ho-o-po-no-po-no with a long o sound) a person takes on the responsibility of everyone around them. That is to say they do not point the blame for the world around them and the actions of themselves or others as out there or someone else's fault. They accept responsibility and blame for what is around them.

An example of accepting blame is to have someone come up to you and say something negative or perhaps something that hurts you and you in turn ask yourself what in me is causing this.
To clean this situation you say:

Thank you

I love you

I'm sorry

Please forgive me

I personally will say thank you for this situation so I can clean it. I'm sorry that I held an error in my perception. Please forgive me for my error in perception. I love you.

Dr. Len tells you to do it similar to that.
It is mainly to accept that the world around us is but a mirror reflecting to us our error or correct perception in the way we are viewing the world. Joe writes about how cleaning brings to that point of Zero or where inspiration comes. It is alot of work and not for the faint of heart.

For a deeper understanding of ho'oponopono buy Joe's book Zero Limits and start cleaning!

Thank you

I love you

I'm sorry

Please forgive me

Discovering Our True Selves

Each of us is here to discover our true selves; that essentially we are spiritual beings who have taken manifestation in physical form; that we're not human beings that have occasional spiritual experiences, that we're spiritual beings that have occasional human experiences।"
- Deepak Chopra

We live in the mundane world, the material world, but the reason we are here is to spiritually grow and learn। We are here to experience. Light cannot appreciate its light unless it has experienced darkness.

I think it is so easy to get focused on the material world, on gathering "stuff" and I do not see anything wrong with wealth, in fact we are worthy of wealth। It is also important, however to not neglect how we are doing spiritually, to pay attention to voice of our own soul.

I do this by meditating and highly recommend this to get in touch with the inner self। There are so many benefits to meditating, one of which is finding answers. So many people look outside of themselves instead of quieting their minds and going inward to listen to the quiet voice within. It is not the chatter of our mind that knows. It is the quiet voice within the voice of nothingness. In that space where your mind is empty and quiet wisdom comes, our own inner wisdom. It can come as inspiration, an epiphany or a vision in your mind. It is here where we get in touch with how we are doing spiritually and can affect change more readily.

There are many avenues to connect spiritually such as drumming, singing, yoga, tai chi, journaling, being open हेअर्तेद

When you live spiritually everything you experience is seen as spiritual to you। Developing compassion and living a heart centered life are important factors in living spiritually. When you do these two things it connects with one another. You grow spiritually much quicker in connection with another than you do alone. We are mirrors of each other in ways we do not realize.

We see others as we are, not as they are. We usually do not see others clearly। We see them through the filter of who we are. Everyone will not see someone the same way you see someone.

This comes back to an earlier post of being the change you wish to see in the world and relates to this topic of spiritual growth। What you experience around you can be changed simply by changing you, by inner work. Inner work that starts by getting in touch with the inner you through meditation.

Life will cause spiritual growth whether we intend it to or not। We are granted periods of grace to reflect, regroup, reenergize, heal.

How are you experiencing yourself spiritually?

Where have you grown spiritually?

If you could picture your spiritual self would it be full of weeds, barren, a beautiful garden?

Start today nurturing your spiritual garden...

Grow spiritual flowers of beauty, love, light...

Be a light in this world...

The Matrix



Permalink
(my daughter drew this, you can see more of her drawings in my photo gallery)
I love the movie The Matrix with Keanu Reeves.
I tend to see the world through spiritual eyes. I believe that God speaks to us through movies, books, music,poetry, other people etc. So when I saw the movie The Matrix for the first time I loved it! The message I saw in it was....

When we remember who we are...
We don't have to dodge fear anymore.

To me the bullets were symbolic of fear. There are only two choices in life to choose.
Ask yourself is this decision based on love or is it based on fear.
In the Matrix you could see that he did not remember who he was for alot of the movie.
But(and this is important for us to remember)when he remembered who he was
when he stood IN THE LIGHT of remembrance of who he was fear(or bullets) could not affect him.
What a great analogy!

Pay attention in your life to messages coming to you...

Remember that when you stand in the light of who you are fear cannot affect you or other people's fear.

How do we get to that place of standing in the light?

That is another topic. But it comes down to knowing thyself which I have referred to in other posts.

Let the universe or God speak to you...

LISTEN.

PAY ATTENTION.

There is usually a message that will speak to your soul in some way.

Intending a Great New Year!

What are your intentions
What are your intentions for 2008?
Many times when we write down our goals for the coming year most of things manifest. I have done this for years and when I have gone back and looked at my list, most of the things manifested.
When making intentions, which I do not just do at New Years I simply put the goal I want to arrive at down.
Imagine your goal as already being accomplished
Put emotion and energy into it
Act on your inspirations
When you put energy into it, visualize your goals with emotion and then act on the inspirations that follow your intentions will manifest. If they do not, the timing could be wrong or the universe has other plans for you. Always remember that an intention should be done with the mindset of thy will be done. God or the universe knows what is best for us and sometimes its plans are better than mine. I always try to keep that in mind.
For instance in my last marriage I intended for it to work out. I wanted to keep it going, stick with it. Things did not seem to follow this intention, so I prayed for God to show me what to do. In that instance life showed me what to do and I knew I had to leave. At the time I did not know that a much better love was to come into my life and one that would make me much happier and bring me many blessings. I had to follow where I felt I was being led and TRUST. That is something I see alot of people not realizing when it come to intentions- that if your intention did not manifest trust that something better is coming for you. If you are being inspired along the way you should be flowing with life. If you are not happy, you may be on the wrong track.
For the new year ahead what do you want to manifest?
Make it a great year! (why not? You deserve it) Tell yourself you are going to have a great year and then have one!
Write down your intentions and goals.
Act on your inspirations...
And enjoy the journey along the way.
As Deepak Chopra says: when we are following our bliss it will be easy.
I know when I am following my bliss it is fun, it does not feel like work. I feel passionate about what I am doing. I love it. When you are on the right track that is how it should feel.
FOLLOW YOUR BLISS!
What brings you bliss?
What inspires you?
Ask yourself these questions as you set goals for the year, and most of all
ENJOY YOURSELF!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
MAKE IT YOUR BEST ONE!

Be The Change You Wish To See








"There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.





This is statement is true. Attitude is everything. It is the catalyst for change. I have seen this in my own life. When I shifted how I reacted to people, when I changed me, my life changed. At times it requires inner work that is causing the way we react to the world around us. I figured this out in my twenties when I realized that everywhere I went, the issues of my life repeated themselves until the last few years.
What changed for me?
I did alot of work on forgiveness. I meditate quite a bit and am very intuitive. I also prayed. I have found God to be a best friend to me in so many times- good and bad. As I worked on issues of forgiving others who I felt wronged me I had quite an epiphany after asking for God to help me to forgive. I was shown a vision(I get visions often) where I saw the people I needed to forgive and was shown them with the filter of mirrors being removed. I could see them clearly which brought me to the realization there was nothing to forgive. God let me see that they were doing the best they could as I have done my entire life and I realized in that scenario what is there to forgive. I was also shown why they made the choice they did that hurt me and I felt compassion in my heart towards this other person freeing me from feeling a need to forgive them. This all came about with rigerous and tenacious work on forgiving. For some reason I was having a difficult time releasing the anger I felt at that time.
Once I did this, my life began to shift. I began to react differently to people around me. I stopped enaging in drama slowly until eventually I felt quite detached from what used to cause me grief. I began to feel gratitude. Many blessings came to me as a result. I then discovered "the secret" to having a happier life. I realized that it was based on my attitude. I have known this since I was a teenager but somehow it never helped me to manifest less drama until I did the inner work that created the outer changes in my life.
If we wish change in our world around us, we have to be the change. If we want peace, we must be peace.



A great prayer I love that applies to this is:



The St. Francis of Assisi prayer



Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace.


Where there is hatred, let me sow love;


where there is injury, pardon;


where there is doubt, faith;


where there is despair, hope;


where there is darkness, light;


and where there is sadness, joy.




O, Divine Master,


grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;


to be understood as to understand;


to be loved as to love;


for it is in giving that we receive;


it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;


and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.





CD I recommend: Grace and Gratitude by Olivia Newton John



She sings this prayer beautiflully on that CD
I have it and listen to it often on my ipod.



Be the change in your world!




You will be glad you did as your life shifts.

Wings



















Wings

Light
And its depth
Of endless treasures

Life
Blossoming
With its many layers
Of wings
That call to me

Take flight...
Take flight...

Dream Into Being...


This is a poem from my poetry book:

With a stout heart, a mouse can lift an elephant. Tibetan proverb.
A World Treasury of Folk Wisdom

Your life will reflect the beliefs and thoughts you nurture within you. Plant seeds of a future you will love. If unconscious parts of you are blocking the future you imagine as the seeds of tommorrow, the issues will come up to be healed.

I have done much inner work to arrive at the happiness of my present life.

Do not be afraid of inner work, it can be quite cathartic and freeing.You may find you need to find forgiveness in your heart, release fears or a myriad of different issues that are unique to you.

When you envision the future you want, life guides you in the process of how to get there.

What seeds are you planting for a life you love?

What you sow, so shall you reap…

Plant yourself a beautiful garden…….
