One of the things I’ve done so much in the past was shoot down my ideas. I’d be inspired and feel like “That’s an amazing idea!” Only to then immediately find reasons why it wouldn’t work lol.
I’ve learned to flow with my ideas, to organically and naturally allow them to go where they are meant/intended to go. Rather than find reasons NOT to do something I’m inspired to do or on the opposite end of the spectrum, to go hog wild and charge after it, fearful it may not work out so I better control all aspects of bringing it into fruition.
I remember saying to myself one day, “I’m going to meet Morgan Freeman.” Then, I forgot about it.
Four years later, I was sitting in front of him talking about my NDE. Four years later, I was hugging him and hearing him tell me my eyes were beautiful. Four years later I was having my picture taken with him and my daughter after he told her how happy he was to meet her and for her to be on this earth.
In the time between the thought of meeting him and actually meeting him, I had the idea that I wanted to write a book about my NDE and what it taught me. I was terrified to share of myself in the way I did, yet I walked through that fear and did it anyway. That’s courage. I showed myself I was capable of being vulnerable. My vulnerability helped pave the way to me and my daughter meeting Morgan Freeman. Amazing.
Follow your intuition. Follow Your Bliss. Be courageously vulnerable.
MUCH Love to you!!
I used to hear this phrase and wonder what it really, really, really meant lol. Once I understood what it meant to me, my experience of this life opened up so much more. The freedom and expansive feeling of it grew and continues to grow…just WOW!
This earthly experience is, on it’s surface, a concrete one. It is one we use our 5 senses to have. We employ our physical bodies to navigate ourselves through each day, responding to stimuli and making decisions about things based on those responses. For some, that’s where life stops. For others, there is a deeper experience of life where relationships are forged and emotions play a larger role. Even deeper are the spiritual seekers, those who wish for a greater depth of meaning in their daily existence and exploration of this is a priority in their life.
Regardless of our depth of experience, the journey is the same. We have all the “time” in the world to have it as it is a timeless and for lack of a better word, endless one. The world of Physics states we live in an expanding universe. The universe is pure consciousness and as we are part and parcel of it, the expansion of our own consciousness is integral to that of the universe, it’s energy is Love. As we grow in more and more love, as we allow ourselves to literally be the experience of Love, we expand beyond the known boundaries of space and time as experienced in these skin suits we put on to live out the life we choose. These skin suits communicate with one another through energy. When we’re feeling love, others feel it too and respond in kind.
In that sense, it’s our job to find ways to grow in more love so we may help others grow in more love and contribute to this magnificent universal expansion that benefits us all. It’s about the journey. Truly.
Much Love to you!
Most of us have heard about or know about the Law Of Attraction. It was something that came into my awareness many years after my NDE and was truly key in my moving forward in my life. It, along with finding meditation and then creating the Twelve Principles For Daily Living, which I practiced without abandon. My life depended on it. My daughter’s life depended on it. My family life depended on it. I literally felt like if I didn’t make some deep, drastic, life-long changes in me all would be lost.
That may sound dramatic but it’s true. I had always been an energetically sensitive person and longed for deeply meaningful relationships and experiences in life. When I didn’t get the kind of love I needed from my parents, I decided to put up a barrier of ego and used it to get along, all the while at the same time still yearning for more love in my life.
When I came around to integrating the experience I had in the afterlife into my earthly life, I was able to make the deeply profound connections I hadn’t seen before. My NDE was the Law Of Attraction in action. I was practicing the LOA with Source during my NDE before I knew it existed. It still astounds me to this day. The Law Of Attraction is indeed law. It is law, like our experience of gravity. It is everywhere all the time. It is the stuff of us and the Universe. It’s magical and magnificent and intuitive and natural. It is awe-some!
The Twelve Principles For Daily Living are parallel to LOA. They go hand in hand, like during my NDE. The Twelve Principles help to re-create the feeling of it and LOA guides one in practicing them.
I am still in the process of creating a site where people can go to view what they are and perhaps, if inspired to do so, incorporate them into their lives. I’ve just republished my little book about them on Amazon called I Died And Learned How To Live. It’s one avenue in which to share the message and hopefully help others. That’s why we’re here.
More to follow!
Much LOVE to you!
It’s been apparent to me for a while that we are going through another big shift in this world but over the last month or so it’s even more so. There are multiple things going on that are shaking us up, stirring our emotions, making us think about ourselves and our place in the world and what we want and don’t want. It’s not just about the younger generation sort of angst and discontentment now, it’s about our collective discontentment with “the way things are”.
I am loving all of it. I am loving it within myself. I’m loving all those who are suffering in their own experiences. I’m loving all the politicians and opponents to them and supporters of them. I’m loving the environment in its beauty and destruction. I’m loving the process.
This, all of it, all of the suffering and challenges we’re experiencing are purposeful. They exist to help move us along on our journey here, individually and collectively. They’re in our awareness to remind us we’re not “done” with it. There’s more to know, more to see, feel, touch, smell and hear.
We’re growing and it’s amazing and painful and infuriating and sad and joyous and crazy and beautiful all at once. We have a moment by moment choice to flow with it or resist. One is easy the other not so much.
Much Love to you! xox
I. Love. This. Movie.
Not just because I love Hawaii and the Hawaiian culture. Granted, I’ve been to Kauai three times and would happily go back. I could even see me and my husband living in a tiny house on a plot of land with a garden and fresh water to drink from the stream out back….sigh.
Moana is the poster girl for self-empowerment and following your bliss. Her grandmother the epitome of unconditional love and role model for self-love. They show such a beautiful balance of beauty and strength in this film.
The call of our bliss, like the call of the ocean for Moana, is undeniable and will remain until we heed it. Our inner compass will guide us to it again and again, no matter what we do to go in another direction, it will point us toward where our heart wishes us to be every time.
This may present as obstacles along our path, of bumps or blocks along the road. They are not to be disliked or fought against, they are merely little loving nudges from the universe to move in a different direction. They are signs that we are “meant” to be doing something other than that thing.
Human/ego tendency is to be upset when we don’t get what we want. Another way to look at it is that there is something else, something perhaps we couldn’t even imagine for ourselves or maybe we have but don’t think we’re worthy of or strong enough to go for it, something that is waiting out there, beyond the reef and we are meant to go find it. To move through the fear of the turbulent ocean, of the possibility of unknown dangers, knowing we will be guided and guides will show up for us if we are courageous enough to take the adventure.
Much Love and Mahalo to you! xox
I don’t know about the rest of you but I do life better sometimes with instructions. When I was initially going through my healing process many years ago, I didn’t know how to live, like physically day-to-day live in this world. I knew I, we all are, love but didn’t know how to embody that love.
So, I meditated. I sat in silence and connected with myself. Then, I created the Twelve Principles. They are what I used/use as my daily guide for living. They are, when practiced, what help to recreate the being of love I was in the afterlife.
Living here is an art, a beautiful expression of the divine pure light energy we are. Practicing the Twelve Principles is how I create my own artful living. The Principles are:
Live In Awareness
When my focus is taken off the many distractions around me and placed on these simple principles, my life flows with such ease and with so much more love. I’ll be writing more about them…but they are in my book ‘I Died And Learned How To Live’. They are the embodiment of my NDE.
Much Love to You All! xox
