Tomorrows That May Never Come...

If I had but one message to sing it is this–Moving thoughts into action creates magic.

I used to be that person who watched others as they seemed to be doing something exciting while I sat silently in the background wishing we could trade lives. Was my life really all that bad? Well, sort of yes…in my opinion, after all it's my life story and I get to tell it my way. But was I being honest? Were the images of my life experiences tainted somehow? Was I looking through a muddy pair of glasses? Was I a talker and not a do-er? Are you?

Think of your life story as a puzzle and today is one of your pieces. Every now and then we find ourselves looking back over past experiences and either cringing or smiling. If you were to draw a timeline and pop in the highlights and low-lights along your life path, you would see the puzzle pieces. Now take the same time line and write in the dreams and wishes you had along the way. For instance if you wanted to be a ballerina at age 10 write that in. If you wanted to travel to Madrid at age 33 write that in. I am not saying that all of your hopes and dreams were realistic, I am just pointing out that at one time or another you had them. Take a good look at those desires, what happened to them?

If you were to look at your thoughts as the living things that they are, you would begin to see that when you place a thought out there – "I wish I could play the piano." – it swirls around waiting to land somewhere. This swirling around requires ACTION from you. This is the energy that FUELS the thought. Loving supportive thoughts to bolster this– "I can find a way, I can find others to help me, I can begin step-by-step." Great you send out the thoughts…now what?

You must keep those thoughts humming by making the necessary steps to MOVE the thought into a reality. You may find some negative thoughts creeping in, PREPARE yourself for them as they will come! They may say things like,"Ha! You are too old to learn!, What are you crazy– when will you find the time? This costs money that you should be saving for a rainy day."
Meditation can not only help you to MOVE THOUGHTS INTO ACTION but it can help you IGNORE the negative ones. Positive thoughts require you to make an effort. Take a baby step if needed– just begin to inquire about what it is you want to accomplish. Pick up the phone, research the internet, ask your friends. Send it positive loving energy and watch what begins to happen. A door opens, you meet someone that just happens to appear at the time you are putting these thoughts out into the universe. You have a whole world before you. You have seen what has been in your past. Do you want that tomorrow to have new promises and new opportunities?

I love wildlife and have always wanted to see owls up close. I had put this thought out there many times. I am not a fan of animals in captivity and went along to a falconry with my friends.  To my utter amazement I found that the birds all fly in and out of their pens regularly and some return and some don't. They are there for numerous reasons, like a pet no longer wanted or an injury–that sort of thing. Had I not MOVED into this space I never would have seen a Snowy Owl soar over my head let alone come strolling past me in the grass!

Remember, thoughts are living things. Learn to give them loving energy. Your daily meditations are teaching you how to still your mind and when a negative thought pops in during your day, you already have the tools to NOT GIVE IT ENERGY.

You are an amazing being and there are many more puzzle pieces ahead. Your tomorrows will be filled with surprises and you will be able to write your adventurous story while others sit beside you in silence, but wait it doesn't end here… this is the more DOING part…break that silence and help them make their dreams come true:) Why should you have all the magic?

Raise Your Vibration Through Laughter

Have you ever found yourself laughing for what apparently seemed - no reason at all? That silly rumbling feeling that erupts and causes you to just LET GO?

We are vibrational beings. Each of us is a ball of energy and have a unique vibration. When we are in balance we are in harmony with the frequency our vibration was designed for. A healthy being has a high vibrational frequency of around 62-72 Hz and when it drops to lower levels your body can become susceptible to colds, flus and various forms of dis-ease. The definition of frequency is: the number of occurrences of a repeating current flow per second. Your mind, body and spirit is effected by your vibration. There are many ways to raise this and laughter is one element.

Have you ever been around someone that seems to only crack a smile and you know that this is the best you will ever get regarding a "chuckle?" How is your energy effected by this? Now think of the person you know that has an infectious laugh. How does this effect you?

I was raised in a family that seemed to have more to cry about than laugh. But I had the good fortune to have a parent that used laughter to combat negative energy. I look back in wonder remembering the threatening letters and phone calls from bill collectors. How they stretched a tiny pay check to clothe and feed 8 kids. Yes, of course there were many tears, but it isn't really the lows that have stayed with me.  It is the laughter. I remember once when my father was asked to speak at his sister's 80th birthday he began a little story that started out, "We were so poor they invented welfare to feed us. Our house was in such disrepair we had to paint it to condemn it. As kids, we stole the bones from our neighbor's dog to make soup, and when the dog died we thought we killed it." On and on he would continue and the entire crowd was laughing so hard they were in tears. Yes, these are the tears I think of when I recall those struggling days of my youth.

Find your own laughter. Surround yourself with people that bring joy to your life. We do not always have the ability to rise above our daily woes, and for many they are dealing with grief, illness and despair. Yes, these are very real situations that some of us must navigate along our journey. It is in the realization that we are on a journey that we can look for avenues that may bring something sweeter into our horizon.

Do something silly. Play a game with your family members and even your pets. Watch a funny movie (check out OLD flicks too.) Find a way to laugh and raise your vibration. Once you LET GO and really laugh you will feel lighter. This lighter feeling you are experiencing is your vibration rising to the place is was designed to be.

Meditation can also bring a feeling of renewed energy. This too will raise your vibration. Begin today to find your voice and when you do LAUGH… at the world, the circumstances that are beyond your control and especially yourself.

Life After "Like"

Have you noticed the intense postings on social networks? They can be about their family, their jobs or their personal appearance. Some will post updates on a traumatic experience. Many truly are in crisis and feel they have no where to turn. It was in one of these such postings that I thought of my parents.

My dad was born in 1920 and my mom in 1925. Both have passed now, but while they walked the earth their journey was often littered with roadblocks. Alcoholism and gambling were no strangers in our household. Money was always and issue as there were 10 mouths to feed and a meager paycheck to rely on. The roof leaked continually and the heat never seemed to reach every room. I often heard my mother crying and watched my father fade into his bottles of beer. What would they have posted?
Would they have had the time? I wonder...

And what of me...what would I have said? Would I have had the courage to tell anyone…I sure wasn't able to then. Luckily the trials and tribulations became less and less as the addictions were addressed and peace pulled up a chair in their home…eventually. But still, would they really have shared this, probably not. Not because they didn't have some wonderful truths to impart, but most likely the internet never would have been a form of communication that they would ever become comfortable with. My parents probably would want to send them a card. If my father knew of the individual he would most likely want to send them a home cooked meal (he was a fantastic cook!) My parents used food to show their love. They both grew up very poor and having a meal meant the world to the them.

My heart truly goes out to some of the posts I have read. I see such heartache and turmoil. I hear and feel their pain and wonder what agony they must be in to post  things like "I can't and don't want to be me anymore, I hate myself, and I wish this would all go away." I want to encourage them, tell them they are not alone. But often I do not reply to their statements as I feel it seems to become a static that doesn't find its way through the storm. And so I usually, if I feel led, will contact them in a more personal way.
Somehow posting smiley faces, little hearts or worse yet… LIKE doesn't feel like a response I would want to receive.

And what about that LIKE? What does it mean? Does it mean that the person "likes" that you are in pain. Or is it a way to say, "I hear you and I feel for you--I validate what you have written." Who really knows? That is the point. The person hurting is left with never really knowing what was meant by "like."

Use integrity if you choose to respond. Use a careful attitude and do it in a loving way. Take responsibility for your actions. You can make a world of difference in someone's life by being a good listener. Just validating their pain and listening is very helpful. Most are not asking you to fix anything–they just want someone to know they are hurting.

I think there are many ways to reach out to someone and perhaps this social network is a place to do this. But as you continue along this path always remember that your words are powerful and yes even your clicking "like" has its meaning. Life continues after you hit that button for you and for the person who is struggling. Be love and light in this world and stop before you click and think of how you will be received.
