Be Still

Be Still is the blessing of the day.

I just got off the phone with a friend, and we were discussing how it is often difficult to know what direction we should take in life. With so many ideas swimming in our heads, how do we know which idea is divinely inspired and worthy of pursuing?

We discussed how when we make time to be still and meditate, the answers to our questions often present themselves. So today, I thought I would make some time to be still and see what comes up.

Doreen Virtue has some thoughts on this topic as well.  In her book, The Angel Therapy Handbook, she discusses how to weed out true guidance from false guidance. She describes how true guidance is consistent and states:
True guidance is repetitive, and will stick with you over time. Although it may build in detail and application, the core notion will stay the same. False guidance changes its course and structure constantly(p. 106).
Doreen also discusses motivation in relation to the guidance.  She states,
True guidance is motivated by a desire to improve a situation.  False guidance's chief aim is to make you rich and famous.  Although true guidance may yield those rewards, they are side benefits and not the central motivation for the idea (p. 106). 
I wish you all much peace in finding the space to be still today.  I know the angels above will be with you when you do!

Release is the blessing of the day.

What thought, pattern, person, situation, illness, habit, etc. do you need to release today to be healthier and lighter?

Today, I am going to release my need to find the answers to everything. Sometimes there are no answers.

I willingly release into the flow of life.

I had this idea that I should make a virtual blessing garden where everyone can respond to the blessing of the day.

So here it goes....

The blessing word of the day is Grateful:

Today, I am grateful for friends that pick me up when I am down and set me back on my path, my healthy boys and the pictures they drew on my sidewalk, family who love to spend time with my boys, and my husband who always wakes up happy.

Let me know what you are grateful for today!

Just Be

Sometimes it is hard to just be. As life moves me forward, I find that I sometimes want to cling to the past and my old comfortable ways. Currently, I am getting close to finalizing the sale of my home, and this process is bringing up a lot of insecurities. Am I making the right decision? Where am I supposed to be? Should we build or buy? These are only a few of the questions that have been running through my mind for the past few weeks. Yesterday, I even found myself talking my friend into making an "energetic drive-by" to help me decide where I should live! What is happening to me?

I believe that I have forgotten to be silent and turn inward and connect to God and the answers that are already inside of me. At times like this, I am reminded of the book, The Shack, and my favorite excerpt from the book follows where Sarayu, the Holy Spirit, is speaking to Mack:

"When I dwell with you, I do so in the present~I live in the present. Not the past, although much can be remembered and learned by looking back, but only for a visit, not an extended stay. And for sure, I do not dwell in the future you visualize or imagine. Mack, do you realize that your imagination of the future, which is almost always dictated by fear of some kind, rarely, if ever, pictures me there with you" (p. 143-144).

May we all visualize the Holy Spirit in our future and release all fears that block our good from unfolding. Namaste.

I'm Trying to See the Blessing

Hello again! I had just finished writing this great post about how fatigue is a blessing for me today when my son yelled from the potty, "Jay just knocked my tooth out!" I was appalled and went running to the bathroom. There, I found my son sitting on the potty with blood running out of his mouth! My 3.5 year-old was standing on the stool beside him in horror.

I quickly got the low down. Apparently, my 5 year-old threatened to push Jay out the window, (which thankfully isn't possible in my bathroom) and Jay just slapped him on the face and out fell his tooth!

So, what is the blessing here? My son has been annoyed by this semi-loose tooth for weeks, and now he doesn't have to pull it out. It's a blessing! Hooray! The tooth fairy is on the way!

Now we are back to reading Hands Are Not for Hitting, which I highly recommend.



Angel Message of the Day: See the Blessings

Do you have a problem or concern in your life that you can view with different eyes? Well, today is the day! Transform this problem in your mind's eye and see it as a blessing. What are you learning from this experience? How has this "problem" enriched your life, if even in the smallest way? Give yourself permission to only see the blessings today. See yourself with eyes of love.

Heart Steps

I love this book! My friend Helen gave me this book as a gift, and it has been a steady companion ever since. I read one message daily, and I am always amazed how accurate this book can be.

Today, I found myself at the hospital getting an unexpected echo cardiogram of my heart. When I went to the doctor today, I did not expect to end up at the hospital. In the waiting room, I picked up Heart Steps and read the passage titled, "My Heart is a Throne for Courage" (p. 81). I immediately felt at ease and remembered that I already have all of the strength and courage I need to handle this situation.

In this passage, Julia reminds us that we are supplied all of the support and strength we need to face any challenge in life. Sometimes this support comes from unexpected sources, like a stranger kind enough to give you directions when you are lost (thank you to the hospital employee kind enough to direct me as she was leaving work). The universe does support us in all that we need to do, if we are open and humble enough to accept.
