Have you ever found yourself crying salty tears in a tub of chocolate ice cream?

I recently took my eyes off all things positive; all things true and real; all things healthy, mind, body, and soul. I was focused on all things; not about me. Disillusioned on how this could even happen to me, to those close to me. It is a terrible unfortunate turn of events involving someone close to my heart.
Before long this Natural Health Consultant naturally or unnaturally  ~ for lack of better understanding here ~ found herself staring at the bottom of a chocolate ice cream container, crying, playing and listening to one sad song after another. When that didn’t support my personal pity party I turned to Youtube, called up a Cher Concert. Did you know she is 72 years old? This didn’t help at all. I just started feeling sorry for myself even more but now for different reasons, different scenarios.
OMG Stop I said to myself. After coming to my senses, I purposed in my heart to look at was true and helpful.
This was my wake-up call
Seeing the bottom of that tub of ice cream; I had just violated my body, I allowed my mind to be assaulted by thoughts of worry and fear, and my soul as well as my heart were/is broken… to cap it all off ~  I was letting it happen.
What to do when you are completely undone by troubles no one knows anything about. You wonder, what will everyone think of me, of that person?  When you hurt, link arms with family and friends. Sometimes you just need to weather the storm together—you are not alone.
Remember ~
  1. this is not about you
  2. pray and when you can’t find the words, no worries ~ God will understand your every sigh
  3. keep things that matter in focus
  4. forgive them, forgive you. forgive, forgive, forgive
  5. acknowledge your sadness, your pain, your sorrow
  6. give it to God… let it go and move on
  7. think thoughts of love
  8. love conquers all
  9. send light and love their way
  10. step away from the tub of ice cream 🙂
  11. do not allow guilt to set in
  12. get up dust yourself off and go forward, my friend
  13. get back in the race
  14. continue the good fight
Trust in the One who can do miracles, the One who can change a heart and a life, in a flash. Turning what seems to be an impossible situation into something beautiful in a twinkling of an eye. There is always hope.
My heart is still broken but God…

Should we exercise prudence before we speak?

Creating through words is an art like any other. Words allow us to create using our imagination. As for myself, I am a visual person therefore when one is communicating with me, I see pictures and it is with those images, I understand and my imagination is then in color mode. Some people say I hear you when spoken too, but I see, I get the picture. Sometimes I get the most wonderful images others not so much.

Words are a powerful tool —starting with “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1 —English Standard Version of the Bible.
WORDS 2015
Words, I believe are alive and once said they are trapped in an eternal ripple effect, never more to be redeemed unless through and by Source. There is infinite power in the tongue and wisdom tells us we should exercise prudence before we speak. Words can change a situation from good to bad, they carry in them the power of life and death. Perhaps holding our tongue is good judgment in and of itself in certain settings.  We can cause a true gold shift, with our words, written and /or spoken.

Did you know?

Grace covers all mistakes
Know this is not the end
…neither is admitting to them.

A simple lesson to not be repeated
A bend in the road called life
There is no shame in making a mistake
Being real and honest with others and ones’ self
Is the only way to claiming a victory
Receiving forgiveness is a true gold gift
Forgiving yourself is freedom
Be grateful for another day
And another path to explore
Perhaps this is your second chance to be and do.

Where does our responsibility lie?

In order to weave our inner-strength in the fabric of who we are, mind, body, and soul ~ having an acute sense of self-awareness is key. I am not talking about ego here, I am talking about a keen attentive cognizance of self as a whole; our voice, our inner-balance, being aware of all surrounding good and/or bad energy. If we remain present we will joyfully emerge recognizing our strengths.

It is most important to reflect, align and accept our own responsibility to understanding our emotional, physical, and spiritual compass with total confidence. A true gold building block to weaving together a colourful signature of you is to understand the power and rise of your womanhood. Stay strong.

Who’s hat are you wearing

Are you wearing more than one hat? Wearing more than one hat is an idiom suggesting that you are carrying more than one set of responsibilities. Are you both the weaver and keeper of the loom? Oh, how the weaver weaves.

Self-awareness will open your eyes to many things. One being ~ are you being woven into someone else’s web of dreams. You do realize that you can be too busy to take on anymore and it’s more than o.k. to say no. You can convey it gently and sweetly and still mean it ~ for example; I am sorry that just doesn’t work for me right now.  You don’t need to explain yourself just be strong for you.
There is a ‘hat’ that fits you perfectly and really looks good on you too. It’s a lot like finding the right pair of shoes, you just know when you put them on that they are the exact fit for you. The key to finding the perfect ‘hat’  is knowing how well it compliments what your true gold passion is. It will assist you in stepping up your game. This will be your personal preferred ‘hat’ — your job, your responsibility, your strength and no one has the right to make you wear their favourite and/or their style.
If you want to upgrade, that is quite right, if that is your choice. However, I do highly recommend delegating responsibilities to not just anyone for the sake of letting go, it really has to be the right person and be the right fit… but that is a whole other teaching. My advice here is to not wear too many hats at one time. It is not good for you health-wise nor is it conducive to spending valuable time with family and friends which I might add is extremely important to your well-being, mind, body, and soul. Namaste

Where is your journey taking you?

Life is a Pilgrimage
To quote a Yoga Master, Physician, Monk, and Founder of Divine Life Society 1887-1963 ~ Swami Sivananda
“Life is a pilgrimage. The wise man does not rest by the roadside inns. He marches direct to the illimitable domain of eternal bliss, his ultimate destination.”
You have a divine purpose. I encourage you to walk in it. Life is short and the end of days comes much too soon for so many. There is no better time than now to actualize your potential. I cannot emphasize enough how our lives are a pilgrimage and how it affects everyone that crosses our path. Each a personal trek, nonetheless, please do take delight in your travels. Whether walking to the other side of a room or the other side of the world, let your journey in life be the special and holy place you go to and come from. No longer waiting for life to happen to you, march directly into your appointed destiny. A road paved in true gold, happy pilgrimage.

Is it the memory of Christmas past that begs us to come together or is it a tradition?

’Tis the season, Christmas season when all eyes and hearts turn towards bright lights, festivals, parades and the wonder of it all. In the frosty air, you will find men, women, and children smiling and laughing, you might even notice a new bounce in each step. The joy is palpable. Choirs are singing and homes are decorated inside and out anticipating the happy celebration that is Christmas. Was there a Miracle on 34th street? Oh, and Yes Virginia there is a Santa Claus. (editorial 1897)

It was over 2000 years ago an Angel came to announce the birth of hope incarnate. The good news is that hope came in the person of  Jesus Christ. There was and is no other time where the whole world will come together in one accord. Family and friends travel for miles to make it home for the holidays. Is it the memory of Christmas past that begs us to get together or is it a tradition? Whatever the reason this event is faith and family honoring. What a great way to celebrate the birth of ultimate love. No one is too young or too old to take pleasure in the Season. All the wonder of the Christmas story will shine brighter than the star atop our tree if we simply slow down a little.
christmas miracle
Take time to remember it’s the little things that matter.  Lighting a candle, playing Christmas music, sitting around the Christmas tree having a singalong. When my children were young I would read the Christmas story or ’Twas the Night before Christmas out loud for them.  True gold memories make themselves if we simply take the time to breathe and embrace the season mind, body, and soul.
Most of us are running around shopping, wrapping gifts, baking, stressing, striving for that perfect Christmas miracle — I mean memory. Can we stop for a minute to remember the reason for the season? I cannot help thinking about all of the strangers who will be alone this Christmas. Sometimes it’s just too much and I want to push that thought to the back of my mind. For instance, when you see or hear something terrible in the news and you reach over to shut the television or radio off ~ forgetting that it will not go away and it is all too real. We can be that one person who will pray and/or do something, anything. Big or small we can do our part. Out of sight should not be out of mind.
These strangers hopefully had a home at one time…they have known what it is like to love and be loved. If not, then perhaps, we can be the hands and feet of God who has no favorites to show them they matter in this world. We all have been given the breath of life at birth. We are all worthy of tasting all that is good. Let us be ready to entertain them for we do not know when a human angel will come to visit. The World English Bible reads: Don’t forget to show hospitality to strangers, for in doing so, some have entertained angels without knowing it. Hebrews 13:2.
