'Princess and the Pea' May 09 2017

Do you remember the fairy tale, Princess and the Pea? I had one of those moments not too long ago...

The other week I was out simply pulling up some dandy lions. Since I wasn't digging or doing anything laborious, I kept on my sturdy flip flops and pulled up loads of weeds and continued on my merry way. Two days later I was at our beach home and my foot began to bother me... a lot.

While I saw a splinter; in there, the little guy just would not leave. It appeared to be quite happy taking up space in my body and was in for the duration. There wasn't enough soaking in warm salt water or peroxide that would convince it to leave the premises. I knew it entered on the Day of The Dandy Lion (we have many plants with tiny little thorns in the yard)

It quickly became an annoying little bugger.

I continued on. I performed massive amounts of gardening as the pile of garbage bags filled with weeds will attest and much to the chagrin of our local trash collectors. Each night I would soak my foot. It WAS annoying. Certain shoes seemed to annoy it more. It was red and slightly warm. Walking on the sand was not as joyous as it normally is.

FINALLY it popped out Thursday night; over five days after its entry. It quickly fell onto the carpet never to be seen again, so the picture is a pen mark on my finger to show you exactly how tiny this little guy was. It WAS tiny! Its message had been delivered and lesson learned so it was now ready to be a distant memory.

But it let its presence be known in a BIG way. The lesson? Wear shoes all the time while gardening obviously. However, the analogy of the story, is that if something is not to your liking, the angels will provide a way to slow you down, re-evaluate, heal so you may move forward with the utmost grace, joy and of course love. My lesson? BE in the moments of BEing more often. Allow all to emerge. Do not force anything in or in this case, out. All works itself out in that blessed phrase, 'Divine Timing'.

It's when those seemingly little things can wreak havoc in our lives because we begin to focus on their annoying presence, much like a splinter. When we allow ourselves to BE, we give ourselves permission to pay attention to nuances and heed their warning. Give the 'splinter' a chance to leave and not become a problematic boulder in the scheme of things. 

How to accomplish the removal of the pea? One can attempt to ignore it, but when did ignoring something solve anything? It doesn't and you know this well. Look at the lesson you are experiencing. How would you do things differently? Does this little inconvenience bring to light an aspect of you loving yourself more in a different way? (for this scenario, loving my feet more by wearing proper shoes is a no brainer and Honey Guy would testify to this in a nano-second).

I honestly love the messages and little lessons (pun intended) The Gang provides on a daily basis. Daily? Absolutely. It's in the nuances of our daily life that shifts happen and we can become aware of them all and BE. 

 

 


When a statue talks to you...are you crazy or... May 05 2017

This guy... what a boss! Never let anyone tell you inanimate objects, especially sacred ones, don't have an opinion.

Don't believe me?

Read on....

We were living in Massachusetts and a local store was going out of business. I had purchased a few sundry things there previously and simply loved the energy and her entire line of products. Everything was Asian, ancient and had an energy of being sacred behind it. A truly magical store and one I regret not seeing flourish.

Off I went to wander and explore; not intending to purchase a thing. It was more of a scouting expedition.

As I was meandering around the store, the statue below started yakking at me and yakking LOUDLY. It wanted to come home with me. I try, repeat try to be of the mindset that everything has a spot or a 'home' before purchasing especially one of this stature and energetic presence. I couldn't think of one right away, so I walked out. Yes I walked out initially without the statue.

BEFORE I got home, I thought of a great in the family room. That was an ideal spot! (or so I thought)

Turn around I did...

I entered the store and approached the statue. I swear it smiled at me! Yes, all these years later I still remember the event.

I purchased it and gently placed it in the back seat of the car and began driving home.

'By the way, I don't wish to be placed where you think. I want to go on the mantle.' 

WHAT? Did that thing in the back seat just start talking to me?

'Yes, I did and I am going on the mantle.'

I now drop my mouth and start literally arguing with an inanimate object that is lying on the backset of my car. 

'No, the mantle isn't wide enough for you.'

'I'm going on the mantle so I can bless all who enter.'

'Nice idea, but it's too narrow.'

'I'm going on the mantle.'

And this continued for the eight miles left of our journey home.

I placed it where I thought it ought to go. It didn't look right. 

Where did it end up?

The mantle. It looked perfect there. Everybody loved it there and yes, it did indeed bless all who entered.

After we moved from that home, it then wished to be placed on top of a particular cabinet. It's a rather small cabinet and always finds a small wall to be up against. Buddha LOVES this set up. It/He LOVES the crystal it holds. It/He LOVES the candle holder in front. 

When we moved from that house, much went into storage, including Buddha, cabinet and all. I have no idea who he argued with in the four years it was in storage, but that is their problem, not mine. We moved into our New Digs and once more a small wall was found for the small cabinet along with the crystal and candle and of course Buddha.

Peace and blessings reign once more and as the saying goes:

All is right with the world.

 

 


The Art of Allowing May 04 2017 1 Comment

The very word allowing is rather empowering as I recently experienced.

You know the dance; having to do so much on your own and if somebody offers to help you find yourself going in behind them to 'fix it'.

yeaaahhh... me too.

My AHA Event happened a couple of months ago while in Charlotte, NC for the SHIFT Conference. This was the first show that Honey Guy wasn't able to be with me for not only the physical love support but all the Sherpa Duties he carries so well. I had three lovely goddesses all ready to go on the day of, unfortunately all were occupied at check in and unload time for me.

I had the entire day ahead of me, so there was no rushing involved... really! I was being slow and methodical, just like the turtle.

As I was unpacking the car, a young man goes by and says he is a volunteer and can he help me.

'No, I've got it, but thanks!' With a big smile on my face.

'You are a strong woman who isn't used to help. Will you allow me to help you?'

BAM, I did an immediate 180 and said YES, I will allow you to help me. Help he did for the next three hours. 

Allow. So very powerful. For the remainder of the weekend every time I saw him, I pointed him out and shared the story ending with 'I allowed him to help me!' I savored that energy and you know what? It was more powerful and poignant than ever. I relaxed. I let go of the reigns and allowed assistance in with a BIGGER smile and open heart.

What will you allow in your life today? While we are fully aware of lower energies, let's focus on the GREAT energies that are also afoot and allow them to enter into your world to assist, expand, explore, support, comfort, and even periodically wing slap. You can take some weight off your shoulders.

Not all assistance comes from The Gang. Many are disguised as a human as I now fully embrace.

 


The signs we get.... April 20 2017 3 Comments

I was blessed to have three of my grandparents live well into their nineties. Each one of the was incredible in their own right. I loved them all dearly.

As an example, Grandpa would have us out watching the ants play baseball, watching submarine races and keep us enthralled with stories of life in the early times in New York City.

Grandma, his wife, was the spitfire; small but mighty and very cognizant until the very end. She was the cog in the family, always there with great hugs, laughter and tidbits of wisdom, when you were ready to listen.

My other Grandma, Mary, is the one I wish to share about today. The last months of her life were confusing. Without drudging up family drama, nobody is quite sure of her last days other than she had a roof over her head, plenty of food, etc. She was taken care of, but we are also fairly certain there was 'mischief' afoot; that's me being nice about her care giver.

I was her first grandchild and the only for over seven years. We built a bond that was unbreakable that lasted a lifetime and now apparently beyond...

Grandma died many years ago and as with the passing or skipping over of our loved ones, we mourned. We cried. We laughed. We questioned. She skipped over in the month of June and by September, she began leaving signs for us.

The first gift was found in the center of our upstairs hallway. Right smack dab in the center of the hall. The hall we all traversed on a regular basis going to and fro to bed. On the day in question, I was walking from the office to our bedroom and lo and behold there was a very small Mary Medallion (one of the blue ones). I quickly said 'Hi Grandma' and put it in a chest she had given me from Poland to keep it safe.

Second gift; I shared the story with my mom a few months later when she was visiting and went to show her. The Mary Medallion had reproduced! There were now TWO medallions, but this one was the solid silver one in the photo. Before you question, the chest is rather empty with the exception of gifts from her.

Third gift; I have a Kwan Yin statue on my nightstand. Over one year after the second gift, I found a Mary Medallion was now safely nestled in Kwan Yin's hand! This is the second blue one.

Fourth gift; fast forward three or four years. We had just moved into our New Digs. We had been able to put much of the house in order and were now in the Lower Level (aka finished basement) and putting away all things Angel Chatter. My husband and I were chatting away about the house that was quickly becoming our home, our dreams of the future and just general talk. He became very quiet. As I glanced across the room to him, he was looking at something in his hand.

'What's that?'

'I just found a Mary Medallion on the rug. It wasn't there before.'

'Did you say HI to Grandma?' 

'Hi Grammy.'

This is the fourth medallion in my hand - the very opaque one. I figure she wished to see our new home and make sure once again all was well in our world.

Fifth gift; Mom has now found one in the middle of their bed AFTER she made it!

You see, our loved ones often visit us. All of us. Sometimes they leave a token of their love; the Mary Medallion as an example. Some leave an aroma in their wake that we associate with them. Some may allow you to feel their presence in the form of a hug, a thought, a gentle breeze or a song. Sometimes we are trying so desperately to hear from them, we inadvertently don't allow these gifts to come forward in our consciousness. 

Relax! Allow yourself to receive these messages. They will come in a variety of ways and each one is meant to catch your attention. They are only a whisper away.

 

 

Promise.

Have you had a visit? I would love to hear about it below! You can always chat with Zadkiel to help clear the way a bit better for you to better see, feel, hear, know of their visits.
