Quotes

And the veil gets thinner.

I love this time of year and not just because the leaves shine in an array of gorgeous color. Number one reason is I love ghosts, spooky things that go bump in the night  and whispers you hear in the air. This is the time of year when the veil between our realities gets thinner. You catch a glimpse of a shadow in the corner of your eye and tell yourself it was nothing. Maybe you hear someone talking low and barely audible only to say it must be coming from outside or next door but of course some reason certainly not a spirit or ghost. This is a common occurrence in my world and I have come to accept it as normal. I think you would call that being an Intuit but it is just being a bit more sensitive to energy around you.  I also have great respect for the things I cannot see and never play around with spirit games such as séance and Ouija  boards. I accept their presence it is real. I think of these spirits as guides ancestors and angels and they are here to aid and help us. It is only when you open the portals and gates to dark negative energies that negative spirit enters. Unfortunately it is not a game and the negative energy can now hang out and play. I wonder if you know how many spirits and guides are with you at this moment? You may be surprised.

Quotes

All that a belief is, is a thought that you keep practicing.

The thought that you think, you think, which attracts to it; so you think it some more, which attracts to it; so you think it some more. In other words, when you have an expectation, you’ve got a dominant thought going on, and Law of Attraction is going to deliver that to you again, and again and again. And you say “The reason that I believe this, is because it is true.” And we say, the reason that you believe it, is because you’ve practiced the thought. All that a belief is, is a thought that you keep practicing.

—Abraham

What is the dominant thought you have about your self? your life? your work? your ability to succeed? Think long and answer truthfully and if the answer does not align to what you want/desire change the thought and belief. This is why affirmations are great because with practice you change your belief.

Finding answers within not outside of your self.

All these questions swirling in my head, looking at my life and being convinced it is all not going my way, not even a bit. Tired of getting up in the morning and by nights end glad to see the day ending. I have felt as if my life was wrong, in limbo, as if I stood just a second off of what reality should be. Caught in a Dr. Who scene or time warp but definitely disconnected from me. Re-connecting has been tricky. Slowly I am answering these questions because the answers are not outside of me, no one can give them to me, but within. Nothing has done this to me, only I have done this to me, which was the first answer. When I discovered all my thinking about my life is wrong than I can switch to all that I can think is right. Things I viewed not working are being illuminated with solutions.

It is horrible to be broken into pieces. The one thing I know, if you stick with it you will discover the answer within you and life will change. All the problems in the world are outside and you can allow them in or not. You can create your world the way you feel, emotionally and logically, your way. That is it. No big message or purpose to discover, think how light you feel now.

Realizing the more I thought my life, closer to the point, me was broken, the greater the strain and guilt I felt because inadvertently I created this life. Just as any habit is hard to break free from this type of thinking may be even more difficult to learn. Implementing daily I find is the only way to correct what has become a lifetime bad habit.

Vermont field of wildflowers and birch trees

The turning point was a dream. I talked with my wonderful now passed over Mom and she was standing in a field of wildflowers, the scent in the air was her Windsong perfume and there beside her were the boys, two dogs as they had so many times before, waiting for me to greet them. An intense feeling came over me of warmth and love, and in my head I could hear everything being said, like a computer being downloaded with info. Her eyes were a brilliant blue and her hair was wavy and blew in the breeze. I did not want to leave. There was a pop of light and I was back here and Tucker (my dog) snoring gently on the floor. It took several days to sort everything out.

She, my dogs, all those who have lived before me are here and if I would just stop getting in the way I can feel them around me. Since I have worked on grounding and connecting to the energy flows, angels and spirit guides, my energy is up and my creativity is sky rocketing. The biggest problem now is there is not enough of it, time.

Messages from spirit are important and we seem to make little of these signs saying it is in our heads or imagination. The dream was real, making the message important and given for a reason. Listen feel and believe what you feel in your heart because all is heard on the other side, which is one step over.

Something to ponder from my favorite beings Abraham Hicks.

 

You are magnificent beings, in the perfect place at the perfect time, unfolding perfectly, never getting it done, and never getting it wrong. Be more playful about all of it. “Today, no matter where I’m going, no matter what I am doing, and no matter who I’m doing it with — it is my dominant intent to look for that which I’m wanting to see. I’m wanting to find thoughts and words and actions that feel good while I’m finding them. For in doing so, I am, in the moment, practicing the art of allowing all that I’ve been telling the Universe I’m wanting, for all of the days of my existence

—Abraham

Is Source vengeful or understanding?

Source never wields vengeance or offers punishment, for Source understands you are valuable; you are worthy; you are blessed. Source understands that you never get it done and you cannot get it wrong, and that even when you stand in a place that currently feels wrong, ultimately you will return to what feels right. You can return now to what feels right with an adjustment of your thought process and an adjustment of your vibration and a changing of your point of attraction and a finally letting in of the Well-Being that is flowing to you always.

—Abraham

I have never believed that God/Creator/Source is vengeful. When you are you become judgmental distrustful and un-loving. This never feels right. Why could anyone ever trust life? This is just my humble vibration of Well-Being, what is yours?

This is how my vibration looks to me when I connect to Source. Image from favim.com

If everyone did exactly what they want to do?

Hypothetically, people worry about everyone being selfishly oriented. “If everyone did exactly what they want to do, what kind of world would this be?” And we say, a really, really good one. Because if everyone did what they wanted to do, everyone would feel free. And if you feel free, you feel empowered. And every negative emotion that exists—hear this—every negative emotion that exists is because there is some sense of loss of freedom somewhere in there.

—Abraham

Nobody else knows your reason for being.

Nobody else knows your reason for being. You do. Your bliss guides you to it. When you follow your bliss, when you follow your path to joy, your conversation is of joy, your feelings are of joy — you’re right on the path of that which you intended when you came forth into this physical body

Nature Art Flower Photography
Photography by Laurie Rohner

This is a Peruvian flower on a plant given to me by a botanist friend. He had given me just a clipping with instructions on how to care for this plant. He said with little care this plant once established would display spectacular blossoms with enticing aroma. I have separated this plant twice and it has moved with me several times but it has never given up and each year it blooms. This year I have two plants that are blooming. The bloom’s scent is magical and not overbearing. It is a flower that lifts you with beauty and aroma. The  blooms only last for 24 hrs and then shrivel and die.  The plant is nothing spectacular with large spiky green leaves but inside the leaves comes forth these buds. Nature does not think why it simply knows it must and maybe we should take a page from this amazing plant. Inside all of us is a blossom and only you know what the blossom will be. Follow your bliss. Know you are always on the right path.

Be bold in the dreams that you dream for yourself.

Many think success means getting everything I want. And we say, that’s what dead is, and there is no such thing as that kind of dead. Success is not being done; not being complete. Success is still dreaming and feeling positive in the unfolding. —Abraham Hicks

Success at least my vision of success is always changing and evolving. When I discovered this quote by a favorite spiritual being I felt I had to share it with everyone. How many times do we get stuck in the misguided concept that you have to get to the end to start again and only by getting to the end do we succeed? Boring. By changing the vision and adding and deleting things as life pulls you along is the thrill of life. I guess when you do not think this way it is what people refer to as feeling dead inside. Death while living should never be your goal. Shine bright everyone.

Hold the vision and trust.

In your action, you lose sight of the vision, you lose sight of your trust in the process, and you just bang around in a sense of futility. Hold the vision and trust that the Universe will acclimate to your vision. Hold the vision and trust the process.  —Abraham Hicks

See what happens when you ask for some light to shine illuminating an answer for your life. This was another synchronicity moment of many I received in a 24 hour period. So profound and definitely worth taking notice.

I hope you have not given up and trust in the vision you hold for your life.
