Walking the Rainbow Bridge

Walking the Rainbow Bridge.

I am hearing or becoming more and more aware of people who are completing their lives readying their selves for the crossing over into their reunion with Spirit.

I would like to address this, and hopefully place a light on this subject to help us be a little more ready to deal with someone who is dying or even our own death… asubject which in North American is a subject no one wants to discuss…it’s justtaboo and also to so many a scary thought, time, or experience. And that is because that is what we have been taught. It is scarier and more taboo here in North America than any other place in the world.  Our thinking here seems to be that everything is over, and done…finished…the end.

But it is not over and done, only this part of the journey. All through our lives there are milestones…Becoming the age to begin school, then becoming the age to move from elementary school to Junior High, and then to Senior High School, now while there we are finally old enough to get our driver license, and finally graduation and onto College or University, also reaching that incredible age of  21 yrs.  We are finally legal….and so it continues… 25 yrs. –  A quarter of a century, Then 30, 40, and oh my gosh 50 yrs. One half a century…over the hill at 60 and then lo’ and behold 65 and pension time…and so it continues… andduring each of those segments of time we are going through learning curves one right after the other one surpassing the next all the way through our lives…learning,and experiences, contributing, serving, giving, accomplishing and finally….wehave made it…Our biggest milestone so far…..We have completed all that we are to do here on this physical plane. We are given this huge reward for accomplishing all that we had contracted or chosen to complete in this physical reality. WOW!  Graduation….Now this beautiful incredible reward is beckoning to us…to come fully into reuniting with Spirit/God/Creator/Goddess.  Birthing is upon us.

If you ever have the opportunity to go through this with someone you love, it will change your life forever… Yes your loved one might be apprehensive or fearful because they have been taught the same as we have…It is time for us to adopt new thought…we are all realizing that we have been living in an illusion that most everything we have been taught is not how things are…so let us jump into newthought regarding death and in doing that we can help those going through it…aswell as ourselves.  This is not a dreaded and horrible end…it is a beginning of a new phase of our lives.  God said we shall have everlasting life… and I say… So be it.

Now it is our opportunity, to help them see the light to go toward it, to let their fear go…tohelp them realize the beauty and the beginning…

I do believe as we catch on to a new thought about death, that those who feel as I do will not experience the fear… I feel it is the ultimate reward to finally reunite and go home…to be in oneness with creator. It’s a WOW time.

We find it hard to loose someone we love, but in actuality we are not loosing them unless that is how we want to believe it.  I am choosing to see it differently. I want to celebrate their achievements…to celebrate all that they have accomplished…my goodness look at what they have been through and now PEACE… Everything they have done in this physical lifetime is worth a huge celebration…for we all know life in the physical is not an easy thing…it is a huge thing…and the harder the life the more reason to celebrate.

Why feel we are loosing them…no we cannot see them in this physical life but they are right with us…feel them, talk with them, love them, celebrate them…be happy for them…andbe in gratitude that our lives were touched by them…and know that one day we will see them again.

I am certainly not meaning that you should not be sad…of course you should be, but to feel in your heart that there is more and that they are there, and are still very much alive just in a different dimension…. I Love you. thank you.

One of the Greatest Gifts – TRUST

I was fortunate to be taught about trust at a very young age and learned to receive people with an open heart. Through the years that teaching has contributed in helping me become me.

Willingly my door, my arms, my heart and my home are open to receive and welcome a new face… being an open book, means no secrets, there is nothing anyone can use against me, because my heart is worn on my sleeve for all to see.  For me, trust is given to everyone, until proven otherwise, and then I must trust some more, that is hard but everyone deserves trust, love, compassion and respect, we are one we are the same we are equal.  You are me and I am you.

Fear, manipulation, control, hate, abuse distrust is what we are leaving behind; it does not play a role any longer.  Least; isn’t this what we are aiming for?

Pretty much since being a little gaffer I have trusted and my parents were the same. Has that ever backfired? Yes, of course, on many occasions and it has hurt and sometimes the hurt has been really big hurts… but please let me continue coming from a place of trust, and not from a place of being more guarded, and protective for I might not have met you. Had my guard been up and the feeling of needing to protect myself from being hurt had been present, it would mean closing myself off from feeling and experiencing. Maybe I would have missed out on a friendship so awesome because of protecting myself.  Living like that, would not make it as easy to find my God center, or be able to really connect to source. In not trusting, it would be to block the flow of being one with source.  No the pain, the hurt, the being ripped off, it has all been worth it, to meet that one special person or the many special people, and to have my life touched by the many who have touched it….and the experiences…oh my gosh I wouldn’t want to have missed them for the world.  Even the ones I haven’t enjoyed, because they have taught me such important lessons.

Someone once said of me, if someone came to break in, you would open the door and say hi come on in, come in and have a cuppa coffee.  Really if someone steals from me, they needed it more than I…yes my things mean allot, but that is all they are, just things.

So my solemn prayer is that I remain open to trusting and loving forever…to welcome with open arms, the experiences of living fully, risking, and saying “Yes!”

We Attract our Dominant Thought

Whatever we are thinking about, we create, and the more emotion we put into the thought we hold, the quicker and more certain we are to bring it into our lives.

Whatever is happening or going on in our life at this moment, we created and placed an order for.   We are totally responsible for everything we are experiencing.  There is no one we can blame or pass the buck to… Our life and what we experience is our creation. And if we do not like what is taking place in our lives then we have the free will to make a new choice.  Focus only on what you want to receive, by placing an order for exactly what you want.  Do not ever put any thought toward the things that are not creating happiness.  If for instance you are in an unhappy relationship, it is natural for us to think about that…and how we want out or for the other person to change… in focusing on this we bring more and more unhappiness to us. So we need to focus on exactly what we want for ourselves… we want warmth, love, sharing, a real meaningful relationship with…  Now then know that you deserve this, that it is yours to experience, feel it, see it, exactly as you want it. Know it is happening. You have placed an order for it, and so it is.  Think of the things that you are grateful for in this relationship, what it is that you love or like about this other person…focus on it.  Watch it come about.

We must start by expressing our gratitude…being grateful is like a kick start to feeling good, when we feel good we are focusing on the good we want to experience in our life. So each morning when you wake say thank you, look around you at the things you are grateful for, pay attention to them, feel what is taking place inside you.  Even if this day is a particularly challenging day, be thankful that you have all that you need to sail through this day, you have the ability, the strength, and love in your heart, and you just know at your deepest core that this is going to be a good positive and productive day. Feel it, feel what is happening inside you….and watch your day unfold beautifully with things falling right into place.

Surround yourself with joy, peace, beauty, love, sharing, caring…breathe these thoughts into you, own them… Know that you deserve to experience all the good things that you would like to have in your life.

At the close of your day, go through what has occurred in your day, and say thank-you

Feel good about how you achieved what you wanted to bring into your world today.

And so it is.

Holistic and Metaphysical Practitioner

The following poem has helped guide me in all kinds of things…especially in times when we really need to make huge change…this spurs me on.

The Invitation

It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living.
I want to know what you ache for
and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.

It doesn’t interest me how old you are.
I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool
for love
for your dream
for the adventure of being alive.

It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon…
I want to know if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow
if you have been opened by life’s betrayals
or have become shrivelled and closed
from fear of further pain.

I want to know if you can sit with pain
mine or your own
without moving to hide it
or fade it
or fix it.

I want to know if you can be with joy
mine or your own
if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes
without cautioning us
to be careful
to be realistic
to remember the limitations of being human.

It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me
is true.
I want to know if you can
disappoint another
to be true to yourself.
If you can bear the accusation of betrayal
and not betray your own soul.
If you can be faithless
and therefore trustworthy.

I want to know if you can see Beauty
even when it is not pretty
every day.
And if you can source your own life
from its presence.

I want to know if you can live with failure
yours and mine
and still stand at the edge of the lake
and shout to the silver of the full moon,
“Yes.”

It doesn’t interest me
to know where you live or how much money you have.
I want to know if you can get up
after the night of grief and despair
weary and bruised to the bone
and do what needs to be done
to feed the children.

It doesn’t interest me who you know
or how you came to be here.
I want to know if you will stand
in the centre of the fire
with me
and not shrink back.

It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom
you have studied.
I want to know what sustains you
from the inside
when all else falls away.

I want to know if you can be alone
with yourself
and if you truly like the company you keep
in the empty moments.

That sounds strange doesn’t it, but it is a true statement.   Each one of us is on a path, doing

the best job we can.  We are each walking our own path, totally different than each other

although we are all heading the same way… we may not all be aware of that yet but we are

working on it, we are catching on.   Each person who is here on this earth at this time is a

brave being, a powerful being, and an extremely capable being.   We have chosen to

be here on planet earth during the most important time of history.

 

 We have over time forgotten who we are, and

the source we have come from.  So this life is about

remembering.  Part of that remembering is knowing that on a soul level

each one of us is connected to each other. We are relatives, we are brothers and sisters,

We are one, and because of that…………….

I Love you!    Some of the things you do….or how you act, may not appeal to me…but it’s

okay, I honor you, simply because you are here, walking your path,

it means that I will do  everything in my power to accept

exactly where you are in this moment, and not make  a judgement.

It’s at a deep core level where we are connected, where…

We are ONE!

Each person is different, and each one of us have dreams and aspirations… Those dreams and aspirations are important, they are like a deep message that has been shared with you from source…its part of the essence of who we are.  Its part of our  journey to live these dreams, to accomplish that which is fulfilling to our souls.

Life is about being happy, living your life to the fullest…and that means that the sky is the limit. There is absolutely nothing that we can’t achieve.  Unless we ourselves put a limit on what we feel we can achieve.

Throw out all the old thinking, the old stuff we have been taught and stretch yourself…talk to yourself about what you desire and find ways to begin achieving them.  The more we do this the easier it will be….and the more we can broaden our belief in ourselves and what we are capable of.   It was once stated, that the reason we do not grow new limbs when they are severed is because we do not believe we can.  So we put the kibosh on the possibility.  If something is possible it is also probable.   We believe we cannot grow a limb because we were taught that, and our parents knew that and our grandparents…. But why?  and why not?  We are stopping our progress, we are not moving forward, we are holding ourselves in a stuck place.

Now what happens if we do not achieve our happiness, or reach for the stars with our dreams and desires…what happens if we say oh no I can’t do that, or I will never be able to achieve this.  What you believe is exactly what will happen. If you feel it is impossible it is just that.  If you feel you can achieve your desires…that it is possible…then you will.  Our thinking is what can expand our horizons and allow us to achieve miracles.

If we are not tending to our whispered messages, we shrivel and wither, become sick, miserable, angry, unsatisfied beings who have said no to life and no to our creator…. If we could only realize the importance of this life…. did we come here to be empty of fulfilling our life.  If you have not achieved that which you desire because you choose to please someone else…then let it be known you are living your time here on earth for them you are living their life their dreams and not your own.  Is that why you came?

If I could give each person a gift, it would be that right this very moment you would choose to honor yourself, and decide from this moment you will aim to make yourself happy, choose what you do because it provides you with happiness and a sense of well-being.  If there is anything in your life that you are doing that does not give you joy, its time to make a new choice.  Life is about choice, and we all have choice…if you are holding back…choose a new road, a new job, a new way…

I’m pulling for you….I believe in YOU….. I Love YOU!

Do you feel like you are on a treadmill?  You are going through all the actions, thinking of a zillion things at once, trying to get all the things accomplished that you need to…and not getting half of it done…

 

Let’s start now at achieving that what we must do in a manner that will remove our stress, lighten our load, and help us become clear about what we really need to accomplish, and then to do it.

 

I have found for me, that I need to practice Mindfulness and what I mean by that is that everything I am doing I am mindful of it.  If I am sitting and my cat come along and rubs against my leg, I concentrate on it and feel what that is like and how his tale wraps and hugs my leg, and then moves away…if I am peeling the potatoes, I concentrate on just peeling the potatoes…how long are the pieces that I peel, how many times do I do the down stroke with the peeler, how does the skin on my hand feel as opposed to the peeled portion of the potato, is the potato narrow, fat, long, short?  Everything I am doing is being mindful of each thing.  Even in visiting with someone, am I listening, really listening to them or am I anxious for them to stop so that I can talk?

 

In doing this, we are not bombarding ourselves a list of all the things you need to do, you are solely thinking of that which you are doing at this moment.  So in this we are living in the now, in this very second of time, we are removing a huge weight from our shoulders, we have uncluttered our thinking, we are not rushing through the chore thinking of the next one.  We are being one with that one thing we are doing in this moment…it is about respecting what we are doing, it is being reverent, it is honouring of ourselves by freeing our mind and our body from tension, rush, worry.

 

You will be amazed at how your time is freed up, that you can accomplish far more, that your thinking is clear, and that you do not feel stressed out.  With each meeting, each appointment, each sale…with each task you need to deal with, just simply breathe in and then breathe out and be mindful, just do that right this moment and feel the stress and tension leave, feel your shoulders drop, and be in this moment. Have fun living a mindful life. I am Loving you

We have had a lot of situations arise in the last while, devastating things that have brought humanity a little bit closer…

What I find though is that we come together, in sadness, and some in fear…but we need to remember to come together because of Love  Honoring, and Gratitude.

Every person on this planet has a purpose, a mission, a path that they chose before coming here.  Our goal is to fulfill our purpose, and be reunited with our Creator, this last part is many times fulfilled before leaving our earthy bodies.  To re-connect here on this physical plane is an incredible thing, for it means we are remembering, we are going within, and finding out who we are and connecting to our God-self. 

When a tragedy occurs we as human beings, remember on some level that we are connected to each other…that we are one, and we pull together in love, sadness or fear and compassion  or a combination of all of these.  The fear, the sadness is the reaction we have been taught to feel and therefore express.   We forget to honor, to be proud, to rejoice, to celebrate and most important to Love, Cherish and have Gratitude… Why?  Because we have been taught that death is awful, its to be feared and its the end.

It is not the end…it is not over…it is not terrible…. It is the Beginning of the next part…it is Like a Birth or Rebirth. 

These dear souls who have died (and I use that term reluctantly) have accomplished what they chose to do before coming to the physical plane.  Their Mission is fulfilled.  Their purpose has been achieved.  How glorious is that????  Should we not be celebrating their Victory?  Should we not be Honoring these courageous souls?  They through their actions and their purpose here have raised the consciousness of humanity higher,  new souls have awakened because of these souls completing their mission.

I am so very proud of these beautiful souls and for what they have achieved… I honor them.  I Celebrate with them because I know they are celebrating for what they have accomplished.  I cherish each one,  and I am in Gratitude for their tremendous gift…the gift of themselves.

They are now definitely reunited/reconnected with Source, God, Creator, they are embarking on a whole new wonderous journey.  I want each of them to know how very much I love them.  

So, with anyone who moves out of this plane into the next…I celebrate with them in their accomplishing their Mission,..I raise my hat,  and my heart becomes so filled with Joy for them.  They do not want us to sink down into the depths with pain and heartache they want us to move forward along our path, to achieve what we have come here for, they are rooting for us…to accomplish what we need to. 

I am loving you…Namaste

For me life has incredible meaning, and so much of what was once important to me (like stuff) is no longer important.   To me it is about my connection to Spirit, to Soul…to have this special relationship with Spirit with my true being, to connect to the wonderment of all that is. To be in ONE and to have Unconditional Love for all. To be in ONEness with the earth and all the animals, birds, sea creatures, anything breathing which means all the vegetation, the air and our water.  This is HARMONY to live in oneness with all.  To have respect, to nurture, to have compassion, to be one with all.  Therefore it means that every aspect of my life has to involve all of these.

On Shelter, the home to me  would be uniquely designed using a mixture of green products. Ideally part would be of rammed earth, cob, some wood and straw bale.  Also using recycled products as well.  The lines of the home need to be curved as are the streams the gullies, the hills to bring that curve into the home is more harmonious and represents flow, and oneness with the earth.. The main front of the home facing south, with a lot of glass and an area for the collection of heat.  If you are living in an area where there is a shortage of then to recyle the grey water for gardens or flushing toilets.   Power would be the use of wind, (in certain areas) and solar systems.

Part of the garden would be inside the home, bringing nature into the living space, creating harmony with the earth, seeds, sun, water and food within the home.  In thinking of this it means we would be living in our garden.  

Also to do with our Shelter we could have a huge area with a Community Kitchen for some of our meals, for gatherings, for preserving time, for storage of food preserves, for medicinal herbs, massage tables,  a craft area, a sewing area, library,  meeting room, a meditation space, and an upstairs area of smaller rooms for various activities, games, and also some guest rooms. 

This area would be adjacent to the community garden, the root cellar, the reg. cold storage area, the greenhouses, and also the composting areas.

The people?  Well Diversity is one of our main things, as no one is the same as the next, so each person or couple or family comes and brings their uniqueness to this community of all ages.  Firstly we need people of all walks of life, mechanics, builders, gardeners, laborers, roofers, electricians, plumbers, road builders and maintenance, teachers of living skills… I feel it would be very important to still maintain spaces in our togetherness and respect alone time.

Through this experience we would have shelter, food, clothing, community and diversity. We would be supporting each other in every way we could, each person would need to know what they have to bring into Community in order to contribute.  Some will bring money for the land and to begin the dream some the skills, but it will all have its value.

My dream is Sustainable living…  As we go further into our evolving and discover our true needs, it will be to go beyond where we are at now.

At the present time we give our power away to the banks, and other financial institutions, rely on the grid for our electrical power and the gas and oil industry for our heat and transportation, the grocery stores for our food and also our clothing.  It feels to me like nearly everything we do comes out of a box, it’s all about convenience and throw away buy a new one type of thinking.  We rely on big corporations, for our survival, we are dependant on them.  I want off…the wheel of our present existence.

I want to take back my power and be in control of creating my life fully, I want to begin this as soon as possible and be ready for the change that is going to affect every one of us.  Everywhere you look, they speak of the money markets going down. What are your plans for that time?  There are huge consequences in continuing all the oil and gas explorations and retrieval of such so that we can drive our vehicles, what is your plan for that time?  What about when there are no insurance companies and no mortgage companies…what about the telephone and and and. 

We can bury our head and say none of this is going to happen, the money will rally again, there will always be electricity… we can think that way if we want to…but tell me this when the gas prices are so high and people in the city can’t get food what then?   Is it better to be inventive and create a beautiful existence with everything imaginable and needed and be ready if the other happens?  If it doesn’t happen, boy will you be financially set.   You might even like this life ‘Balanced’ style soooo much that you choose to stay with it.

Please do not get me wrong, I am not suggesting that everyone sell their houses and do this. No it is not for everyone…but it is for some.  What my goals are here is firstly to share my dream, which will help you in seeing a clearer picture of who and what I am about. Secondly, I know things are going to change, and at that time especially if we are not prepared there could be chaos because people do not know what to do.  I want everyone to see that we do have alternatives and ways of dealing with every possible need.  I want you to know that it doesn’t mean you’re finished, that it’s over…No it means that it is a new beginning, and that we can do it and working together it will be that much easier. 

This lifestyle we are talking about is called ‘A BALANCED LIFE’ where by…no matter what takes place anywhere we are ready, provided for and able to meet the needs of ourselves, and others who will need help.  I am living in a small community, where there is caring, where we look out for each other, it is certainly different than in major centers, where you do not even know your neighbours.  I am ready for more.  To be continued…………
