This morning I took a long walk at one of our seashore wildlife preserves…I hadn’t been there since just after hurricane Sandy. I wanted to see how the beach area had fared. Seems the beach was broader than I remembered .An old section of railroad track, that hadn’t seen the light of day since the storm of ’62, was exposed…
Amazing how things from the past can come to light after a major upheaval.
It’s the same with us Spiritually. Often when we’ve gone through a rough time emotionally, many old wounds open up, ready to be viewed and either preserved or discarded.
The choice is ours…
When I think about all the places I’ve been over the last 10 years, it amazes me- the beauty of Belize and Honduras, the stunning blue waters of the Caribbean, the charm of old San Juan …
Still nothing is quite like springtime at the Jersey Shore, the place I call home. Even though I’ve had a love/hate relationship with the Cape May peninsula, I always return here.
Spirits of place are important and over the years I’ve developed quite a relationship with the Spirits of this place, perhaps that’s why I never leave.
Endeavor always to be attuned to the Spirit around you…especially I’m your home place…it’s a wonderful thing!
It’s a cloudy day today, but that hasn’t stopped the wonders of nature- more bees than I have seen in a few years, swarming over the wisteria in the back yard. Gnats too are biting and that with the dogwood in bloom, means the drumfish in the Delaware bay will be biting also.
It’s easy to complain about the gnats and Mosquitos that seem relentless on a warm cloudy day, but remember they too have their place in nature. They are food for the countless birds and at dusk, the bats.
Take a different look at the things that may bother you- there’s another side to everything troubling- and it’s usually something good!
Wenn sie hocke bleiwe!
Could it be that those little insights that come out of the blue are just random thoughts? Or are they something more?
These thoughts often can be Spirit sending you a message…some call this intuition…it’s really the same thing.
When these thoughts occur don’t try to over-think them, adding on interpretations that may not have any relevance to the original message. This is just your ego trying to make sense of the message..it will often add to the message-sometimes changing it completely.
Take the message at face value…either heed it, or don’t, just don’t make it into something it wasn’t meant to be!
There’s not much better than pure sunlight to clear your head and make your Spirit soar!
The same can be said of a good thunderstorm, with it’s raging energy- Thunderstorms are rarely calming…Sunlight, however on a warm spring day can help make your troubles seem far away indeed.
The pure energy of the sun is uplifting and is another thing which can help to bring your soul together.
Let your Spirit soar with the wind on a warm spring day…
There’s an old Pennsylvania Dutch saying “hands to work, hearts to God”…I was thinking about that quite a bit today as I did a great deal of outdoor work at the new house.
It’s important to keep yourself busy doing things that help to progress you forward and aid in reconnecting and grounding your Spirit…seems to keep all the parts of you together. Adding to that benefit is that Spirit somehow becomes more present the more fulfilling the work.
We should all endeavor to produce good work, because that will in turn produce Spiritual Blessings!
Looking out at the beauty of nature, I can’t see to think of anything more in life for which I could possibly ask! The sun is shining-the flowers are in full bloom-everything is extraordinary!
Nature doesn’t ask for much, a bit of warmth from the sun, a little refreshing rain- But what it can manifest from so little is amazing!
We too can take minimal gifts from Spirit and manifest amazing, extraordinary things in our life!
Get right and manifest!!!
Some days we just can’t seem to get it together…thoughts are mixed up and confused…all sorts of things go wrong and we feel as if we have a dark cloud hanging over our head…just plain bad luck!
When these days happen it’s often because we are not connected Spiritually to our higher self…we are not in harmony.
Bringing yourself back on point is a matter of reconnecting with the part of us that is Divine. There are many methods to do this…Prayer, meditation, those walks in Nature that i’m so fond of, or just sitting alone- All these can help to restore the Divine connection.
Once reconnected you will fell at peace with clarity of mind and purpose….Bad luck will flee from you!!
It’s been said that you can tell a lot about a person by the company they keep…while this may be true, we all at times find ourselves surrounded either by people who seem to drain us of much of our energy, or by people who uplift us-
Which is better to be around?
It would seem at first that it’s best to be around those who uplift us, and that’s true to a point, but isn’t it also good to be around those that we can uplift?
Anyone who is whole, Body, Mind and Spirit, won’t have any trouble being surrounded by “negative energy”, because they will lift that energy up and transform it…
On a daily basis, most of us feel some form of stress. Day-to-day life in the 21st century can be difficult-and sometimes may seem impossible.
But are you stressed because of actual events happening around you?…
…or is it because you feel as if you’ve lost control of those events?
Some things that happen cannot be changed, but we can change our reaction to them.
When you feel out of control, meditate, take a walk on the beach, enjoy a warm bath or get out in nature.
None of these things will change the events happening to you, but they will help to cleanse your Spiritual channel and allow your higher self to rule the day-and that indeed can change things for the better!
