Who Fears Who or What?

How many times as a child have we walked home after doing something we know our parents told us not to do and feared the consequences behind the front door of the house?? For me, there was a few times for sure, I can still hear my own thoughts, “Why did I do that? Man, I am in trouble now! Mom’s going to ground me and Dad going to kick my butt! Argh!” as I sweated bullets with every step. Sometimes when I got home, the punishment was not as bad as I thought and sometimes I got an butt spanking that I knew I didn’t want to mess up again. I guess we call that, having a conscience? Is that what is wrong with our young people today and with parents? The children have no fear of consequences and adults/parents have given up? And why is that? is it the parents now fearing the consequences of disciplining their own children and the children feel totally in control, yet they can’t handle the responsibility or have the stamina and mindset to set their own boundaries?

“Trust your instincts, even if they are telling you something that your heart really really does not want to consider. It can save your life.” F.C.

FAMILY DAY 2018

Isn’t family a beautiful entity?! I mean, when you think of it, each of our families are, distinct and live an independent existence, yet all the while, we are as a human nation, fused as one, a single entity! A family consists of elders, which is the wisdom and the children, the continuance, which is the remaining existing force, left to carry on with that wisdom. Then, I ask myself, what is happening to our children, our young adults, that find some kind of comfort in eating soap pods, overdosing on drugs, committing suicide at an alarming rate? 😦
Have we as, parents, elders, dropped the ball, now raising followers, instead of leaders?? With the onslaught of social media, have the horrific events around the world, scared our young to the point, none of them want to take the lead?
I blame no one, yet think we as communites need to start pulling together for our young and raise more, LEADERS! .. and reward the followers, as they strive to become leaders or assist and give strength to lead…it takes a community! A few drops in a bucket can send a tidal wave!”

LOOKING FOR A POT OF GOLD

I think we all know someone who has said… “I need to find myself.” So they start out on a journey, some spiritual, some religious and or whatever they want to call it. And maybe 10 yrs ago, I may have even said those same words, but let me tell you now, 10 years later what I have found or not found.
Physically I feel like I have walked a 1000 plus miles, but that is just age and any health issues I picked up on the darn trail.. lol.. Mentally though, I have walked a 1000 plus miles and I have seen so much, felt more and gained an understanding of life I would of never had if I did not take that first step. I do realize now that it was not about becoming something greater than myself, that being has always been there, but it was about being exactly who I was from the very beginning. Yes, we do end up unwrapping ourselves on some of our journeys, we just forgot what a gift we really are..simply!

Karma Is Perfect Timing

c9faf6c4dad27bf10eabdb189790cc6eKarma: Is something self inflicted. We each produce our own karma with individual actions. Karma is about perfect timing. Meaning not always when we do good or bad is karma immediate. I have seen karma at times, years later. But one great fact about karma, we can have faith it will come back to us. The only instant karma I believe in, occurs immediately as we cross over back into our spiritual world from this physical human world. All the good we did, all the bad we did and all the feelings/emotions that come with those actions is a rhealm of crossing over at a high speed.

Yes many call me crazy and question my thoughts on the subject of living and passing over. Thats okay because I did make a vow to share my knowledge of spirit and life as we know it..as I know it and as I am told by Spirit. Not one person has to believe what I say, yet I have faith that I am not alone in this. Even if I am, that is okay as well. Life is good, spiritual life is better.

Single Parent: Who Plays Good Cop? Who Plays Bad Cop?

074129420427885605ed1b74441e09a6

Life is not always fair for some. And one of those who get dealt a not so good hand at times is the, single parent.

There may be a reason or an excuse why one parent can not, will not take on their roll as a parent seriously or maybe because of a death. But either or, someone ends up being a single parent.

As a child I recall which parent played the good cop and which played the bad cop. Well what does a single parent do in that case? What an emotional struggle for that one parent who never rests from any title that is given usually to a set of parents, now takes on ALL titles with hopes that they are tough enough or leaniant enough at the right time for the child(ren).

There is no slushing off or getting free time as much as a set of parents can.

I was not a single parent but know of a few and my hats go off to you, and prayers as well as great vibes are sent out to each of you.

You will be rewarded.

Shift – More Than A Keyboard Button

shift
Funny how times goes by, with each new sun rise and sun set, unknowingly at times, there are small changes happening in our lives. If you are in a good place in your life, those slight shifts may go unnoticed or if we take for granted the good place we are in our lives, there may be a shift that we are not so happy with. The shifting universe will shake things up from time to time to get your attention, where it is lacking. Just believe it is all for the betterment of your own self and maybe we will stop asking, “why me?” when a shift does happen. Why not you? Why not me? We really need to complain less, stop spending time on the pity pot and make changes for the better on our own time, before the universe says.. “Oh, he/she needs a slight shift in their life.”
I know many of you think I am a nut bar, but that’s okay. I’m a happy sweet nut bar..lol. There was a great amount of time in my life where what other people thought of me, was a great fear of mine, where everything I did, I wondered if I was doing right and in the process of pleasing everyone else, I forgot or maybe never knew how to take care of my own needs first… then there was a shift…that shift was so hard, I was thrown against all 4 walls and no, they were not padded walls. ;), well okay, one was..lol..But today, the shifts in my life are gentle ones. I like being around people who have compassion, witty, know how to laugh at themselves, can listen and respond, be honest and most of all, not judge me harshly or at all. Hey, no one is perfect.
If you stop and really look at your life, you will see the shifts. Like things you once found intolerable, you are now tolerating. Times when you were quiet, not wanting to stir the pot, you are now, speaking aloud the truth for the good, but the greatest shift in your life is when, you realize there are situations and people in your life that do not need your attention, time, energy and focus.
Enjoy the shift.. hopefully you won’t be hitting too many walls with each shift the universe grants you.

Mature Love As The Snow Flies

snow.jpg

The only thing I love about winter is watching the snow fall. It always inspired me, deeply. This morning I have been thinking a lot..lol.. it is my favorite past time… thinking, writing and of course loving. So many loves, grand baby love, my children love, family love, friendship love and 2nd to none, my Man love.. xx.. I like to think we have a mature love And, I don’t think Mature Love has anything to do with age. I think it has to do with, experience. We both have the integrity to be alone, which is being honest and whole together and apart. We both give without strings and grateful for that because we have different giving strengths. It is a love that when apart, our alone times does not destroy togetherness, in fact it enhances it. Yes, the first day or 2, I miss him so much, but on the 3rd day, I smile because I look forward to being together again. We help each other become more free. There is no effort given to dominating each other, we actually hop past that thinking, because it can become a sort of hatred and anger. We were individuals when we met and that is who we each fell in love with, so why not encourage that time alone, that individuality, which leaves so much more room to grow, alone and together. Who knows, there may be a day down the road where we will want to be in each others space so much more, but I think again, we are mature enough, that does not mean to smoother each other… respect, understanding and truly listening.. in one word.. Communication!
