Quotes

Are you allowing abundance to appear in your life?

What better way could anyone spend money than back into the economy which gives more people work? What you call your economy is the exchange of human Energy. And so, think back a few hundred years about what your economy was in this nation. And what has changed? Have more resources been trucked in from other planets? Or have more people, over more time, just identified more things that they desire — and the Nonphysical Energy that is endless and infinite supplies that? We never hear any of you say, “Well, I have been well for so many years, that I’ve decided that I’m going to be sick for a while to allow some other people to be well.” Because you know that whether you’re well or not doesn’t have anything to do with them not getting enough wellness. You’re not using up the wellness and depriving them of it. And it is the same thing with the abundance. People that have managed to find vibrational harmony with abundance, so that it is flowing to them and through them — are not depriving anyone else of that abundance.

—Abraham

I love that image of trucks appearing from other worldly planets bringing more ‘stuff’ because we here want more ‘stuff’. I also have often thought if the economy is shrinking than where is the stuff going? Could it be just a misconception by humans? I am slowly believing that attitude has to change in every person alive. Think of how many us suffer because we think someone else has more and we need to redistribute the wealth and get our fair share. What a ridiculous assumption? We have the precise amount we think we should have. We the individual create that feeling or vibration. Eliminate the need to have more replacing that need with a thought of how would I feel if with no attachment and watch what will happen. What you receive may be so much more than what you thought you needed in the beginning.

Listening to Spirit.

Watercolor Fairy Woods

The past two weeks have been full of joy and pain. It started with the sale of two fairy houses. It is so gratifying to sell my things online. The one drawback is the face to face interaction which is always fun. Instead it is opening your email and seeing an order from this imaginary person in this imaginary place. I get a rush of excitement every time. I never care about the amount of the order, for me it is the thrill of acceptance. My work matters to someone out there.

In the blink of an eye my world changes, good or bad, and at that moment I realized again how little control we have over this reality. The perception our minds create for us is just an illusion. In one second I worried about paying bills and in the next, the needed money. Why do we spend so much of our time worrying about how we are going to influence an outcome? More than half of our precious time here spent worrying. It seems as I grew older my worry ego self  grew in size. I finally decided I would start to peel away this pesky part my life and expose my true self. It has been a journey of self discovery on many levels and as the lotus flower reaches for the light I too am reaching for truth of self. It is an inner light I seek and I have discovered life is full and beautiful and joyful. It is all perception of our reality.

Let me go back a bit in time to before the sale. I had given up on my life and on me. I am not  talking about depression or ending my life. I had lost my connection with my soul and my connection to my Source. When we disconnect to Spirit, the soul loss felt is very heavy and I can only say it is like walking through mud up to your hips and the shore line is always just out of reach. There are many people walking in mud these days. I believe that Spirit is always there and all we need to do is ask for Spirit’ help. Spirit showed me I needed to take some time away from my mind and connect to nature. I chose to work outside and fixed a small area up where I could be silent and Tuck could wonder about with no constraints. I was not aware I was creating a sacred place.  An important place where I could recharge and be with nature and Spirit. As I finished my work outside my mind started picking away again saying I should be creating for the shop. I am wasting time, get going, you are a procrastinating the inevitable doom is coming. Of course I listened. I picked up some wood and headed for the wood shop to make some fairy houses. On my way I detoured to check my email  and there it was my fairy house order. Totally gleeful I packed up the order and off it went. Now my mind was shouting you better get going. Again I listened. Spirit had shown me what I needed to do and I had half listened. Yes I made a beautiful spot where I could recharge but I did not reconnect to Spirit, not yet.

I headed blissfully to the wood shop happily thinking I had everything under control. Maybe I did not have to do any of the work I thought I had to do and my mind, my ego rationalized it all with the order of the fairy houses. As I worked on the band saw cutting some cedar for the sides of new fairy houses my hand slipped. My pinky finger went into the running blade of the band saw. I could feel the blade and instantly knew it was bad. It was. I debated going for stitches and decided I could butterfly it closed and covered it up with a bandage. It is now 10 days later and my finger is almost heeled.

I could not do any work in the shop so I had to spend time doing other things. I found my sacred place Spirit had whispered in my ear to make was more now than a place to sit and connect. It had become a place to heal. It was not only my finger I needed to heal but also my soul connection to self and Source. Was Spirit showing me this spot because I was fated to cut my finger with a band saw or was Spirit telling me to rest and connect only. Because I did not listen is that why the accident occurred? I am not certain of the answer but I do know the outcome. After sitting in my sacred space, the same space Spirit nudged me to create, and allowing my heart center to open. My finger has drastically healed. This past week I have shipped the most amount of orders to date in a week from my etsy shop, Between The Weeds. Is it fate destiny or just coincidences? I believe it is Spirit and I am grateful for the lesson.

Chasing money or life on purpose?

English: This is a photograph I personally too...
Dr Wayne Dyer

“When I chased after money, I never had enough. When I got my life on purpose and focused on giving of myself and everything that arrived into my life, then I was prosperous.”

Dr.Wayne Dyer, best-selling author, speaker and personal favorite. 

How many of us truly understand what this fabulous man is saying? Throughout the years there has been some real low spots in my life and I thank the Source for giving the world men and women like Dr Wayne Dyer. I have read his books and listen to his CD‘s. Mentally I understand exactly what the words are saying. Implementing this into my life has been a struggle. The last few weeks I have experienced exceptionally hard circumstances and I think I might have glimpsed an answer about why. In life at least mine just when things break wide open and life comes pouring in, a heaviness. Things we thought to be true become anchors and for some of us people who like to be in control of our lives it is magnified even more so. I wonder if a snake feels this way as it shed its skin or a newborn just before birth maybe even a flower as it breaks open to show the wonderful beauty of its real self, the flower.

I make functional art and fairy houses and it is my life blood. It is not what I thought I would be doing in my life yet it gives me absolute joy. Marketing and selling does not but it is something I have to do. I love my business and when I sell my things I know that person is receiving my best, a part of my heart is carried within my creation, as it is in all artist work. It is personal.  When I am in the process of creating I understand exactly about life on purpose because I am working from my authentic self. Marketing and selling means working from my ego and when I allow the ego too much room the chase for money is then more important than the work. The lesson here is work with the ego as you would any tool but dwell in the place where your life force resides. This is where you carry faith, trust, love for yourself, joy and compassion. It is time for me to step off the precipice knowing even if I fall into the darkness  I will  sprout wings and fly. At least it is better than where I am now. I need to grow into the next stage in my life and become everything I have ever believed I can be. I really hate when someone say you can’t do that because my response is always just watch me. A very special person in my life knew if I needed a kick all they had to do was say I can’t now Life is saying I can’t do that and I am saying just watch me. Or maybe they are still from the other side.

Are you chasing your tail after money or living on purpose? If you are in the midst of becoming a flower than tell life you want to fly. Join me in the sky doing loop d’ loops. It is a blast up here.
