Holding space


Many of us must remember that we can only do so much for someone, as we are all here experiencing life in multiple dimensional frequencies.

We are all perceiving reality as a collective with our own unique way of translating our experience. It’s important to remember that holding onto the idea that it is our responsibility to save anyone is however a very difficult space. It’s a form of resistance in the natural order and process of personal evolutionary growth.

It’s by living in our own unique authenticity while holding the space for those as they learn through their personal experiences the very fabric and structure that growth is birthed.
I invite you to the idea of letting go of any attachments you may have surrounding being responsible, while holding the space of unconditional love and acceptance for all beings on the level and degree of their own personal journey of transformational growth…

“The earth has music for those who listen.”

Where do we go from here?
What can we do now?
If we see love in our everyday life, the world becomes a loving world. If we see hatred and suffering in our life, the world becomes one filled with suffering and hatred.
Reflect on our connection with how we get where we are, and where we are going and go there.
Reflect on our connection with emotions and how we feel and live a life of feeling
Reflect on the effect of our thoughts and how they affect the energy and connection in our world and become a participant
Reflect on how our connection in our world is created by our experience in our world.
Reflect on the connection of thought and emotion.
Reflect on your connection to all things and places.
Reflect on your connection to memories and the affect they have on you, in your world
Consider that we may need to create a new version of ourselves. At any time, we can redefine ourselves. We get to pick

Beliefs

Religious beliefs play a significant role in an individual’s grief journey. For some, answers are found in the griever’s connection with their religion, congregation and God. For others simply being connected to rituals, traditions and customs while grieving provides comfort and understanding.

Frequently grievers experience emotional conflict between religious beliefs and mourning the loss of a loved one, especially if it was a sudden or tragic death. Often they are looking for answers from questions that really don’t have answers. 

In my continued journey of helping those who are grieving, I have come across many grievers who struggle with an inner-conflict relating to their religion. As time goes by, these conflicts will resolve themselves with either a new path or restoring their faith.

Morning treadmill

Treadmills are an amazing piece of equipment that you can run or walk on. Regardless of your speed you maintain a forward momentum. The belt provides a soft landing with each foot and the electronic controls allow you to set the speed and elevation that is appropriate for your fitness level.

Now imagine the same treadmill is your life filled with drive, thrust and energy. When one day you lose someone close and the treadmill of life continues but you don’t have the strength, willpower or determination to hang on – you fall! The belt continues to rotate and the treadmill continues to move but you are no longer on the treadmill. The fall causes a few scrapes and bruises that will eventually scab and fall off and someday you will find the strength of mind to get back on the treadmill and re-join life!

Thank you!

There are many people in the world that hold and carry light. When they turn and shine their light towards me, I feel safe, needed and valued. When they turn to go I can never forget how I felt in their presence. And when they turn back I can feel that same familiar light as if it never left.  These people have an outward-looking perspective, they direct their gaze and light beyond themselves and into our living experiences.  Like listening and sharing, they build a framework of existence that is inter-dependent. Thank You!

“Enveloped in Your Light, may I be a beacon to those in search of Light. Sheltered in Your Peace, may I offer shelter to those in need of peace. Embraced by Your Presence, so may I be present to others”.

Joy!!

Joy – for our hearts!

From “Living and Dying” the book

I had the experience of living in a state of joy for two weeks around the time of my sixtieth birthday. I like to tell the story of a dream I had at that time, which is where the experience began. In the dream, I was having breakfast with my two-year-old grandson at my favorite diner in Livonia NY. He looked to me when he saw a bird fly by and asked me, “Ba Ba,” (he calls me Ba Ba,) and he really couldn’t talk in real life, “how come birds can fly?” My response was, “Because it’s their nature.” After a reflective pause in the conversation, I then asked my grandson, “What is our nature?” His immediate response was, “Our nature’s to love, Ba Ba” and then went casually back to eating his breakfast. As I let that moment of childhood innocence and powerful truth flow over and through me, an overwhelming feeling of love and joy filled my being. I could only think of one thing so I asked him, “How come so many of us don’t follow our nature?” He said, “It’s because we can think. Animals can’t think and when you can think, you can forget.”

The dream brought me tears of joy for weeks after as I truly saw only love everywhere and for everyone I came into contact with. Whether it was the checkout girl at the register, the gas attendant, my family, or friends, I could only feel joy and love for everyone, I was love in its fullest. It was during that time when I realized that we all have the choice to shape our experience into what it is that we want, and only we can make that happen for ourselves.

Weeks later I returned to the other world, the back and forth world of love and fear. Often when I felt removed from love, I would notice a sense of being lost which made me angry, unloving and in some way less than I wanted to be and feel. It was in this struggle with loss that I became aware of my own loss of connection. When I felt lost I would spend time in my head trying to figure it all out. Why was it happening? What was wrong with me? Why, why, why? It was this back and forth activity ‘life’ that brought me to this place today. What I learned and continue to learn is all of our struggles are merely opportunities for re-direction, re-orienting us to find our path. They are really a blessing, a gift. I soon realized that when I felt lost, it was only because I had lost my way—taken a detour off the main highway. Because it was such a frequent event in my life, I just didn’t really notice it.

The experience of those two weeks of pure love and joy brought me to a place where I now recognize more frequently that feeling of disconnection—and I don’t like it. If we can find a way to re-orient our attention with our source, getting back to that main highway, when we feel these things, we can find our way back. We can return to the place that connects us with all things in our universe, a perpetual energy zone where all things are possible. Maybe all we need is a good map!
