Honoring Your Body, Breath, and Life Meditation Video/Audio

Every now and then life tends to get us down. We become tense, irritable, and even irrational. Instead of breaking apart, or even if we do, we should take the time to be grateful. Honor is a very special word when it comes to our human life. We are all a treasure. YOU are a treasure! Take the time to honor your body, your life, your breath, and the love your creator gave to you. Do this meditation as often as you need to. Don’t let life whisk you away into anxiety, despair, or depression. Honor and gratitude are important for maintaining balance. Namaste!

Give Respect to Loved Ones While they are HERE

Photo by RODNAE Productions on Pexels.com

When someone we have loved passes over the first thing we think of is the funeral. That old costly way that family, friends, loved ones, and not-so-loved ones show up to grieve their passing. For those of us who have had very close loved ones unexpectedly pass away it is a terrible last memory to have. I can’t even say how much I wish I did not have to see the lowering of my children’s caskets into the ground. The vision haunts me and the somberness of the moment just about traumatizes me.

The one thing that echos in my mind when I think of my crossed-over loved ones is they are still alive. They are just in another form without this clunky body to carry around with all of its earthly burdens. I’m willing to bet if we could just sit and ask how they are, they would say they are happy. If we were to ask them about the old funeral ritual I’m just about sure they will not be all that impressed by those who thought paying respect to them was meaningful after they left their bodies.

I shake my head when I think of the family arguments, and issues with so-called friends. Then there is the torment that happens after someone passes and people struggle with their funeral attendance. People get hurt because they can’t go, feel guilty when they don’t go, and others get upset when they do go. It’s all so ridiculous when I think about it. More issues are made about funerals than people need to create.

I have a better idea. Why not honor the people we love while they are here? As long as they know, and have known, we have loved them isn’t that what truly matters? Saying goodbye is not easy. I said goodbye to my daughter long before she was lowered into the ground. I did it in my heart. I know she felt it because love NEVER dies. Can we even imagine if I had not gone to my own daughter’s funeral? Of course, I felt I had to go. Society makes me feel that way. In all honesty, I would have been much better off without those last images in my mind. They cause me more grief than her passing. In all honesty, I could have done without the “sermon” given by an unknown pastor who never knew my daughter and could not possibly memorialize her. It was the same with my son. The more important issue is that they knew I loved them. My mother knew I loved her. I still love them! I always will.

Love the people who are here in body NOW. If you can’t see them then TELL them! Life always has a flow of its own and we can’t be all places at all times. Technology gives us the wonderful opportunity to give our loved ones those last “I love yous” we so long to give. Even without them, love already “knows”.

It’s just about insane to get all “butt hurt” because of funeral issues. As long as we know, and our loved ones knew. that love was there it’s all that has ever mattered. They live on. We don’t have to believe that but I do. I’m sure they can do without bickering over property left behind. who attends the funeral and whose presence is wanted or not. So leave the guilt behind. If you know in your heart the feelings that were there, then that is all that is important.

As for me; I think I will skip the funeral arrangements. My parents did the same. They were both cremated with no big funeral issue. Frankly, I adore them for that. I don’t see how gathering with people to cry would have made it all that better. I am skipping that part. I will be smiling in my new form, knowing those who loved me cared enough to respect me while I am HERE and not in a ritual where I am lowered into the ground and everyone has to watch.

Agree with me or not. It’s ok.

This is Love in Friendship…

Photo by Kevin Malik on Pexels.com

This is love in friendship: When you never have to ever guess as to whether someone truly cared. When life throws a wrench in the works, they are there seeking out how you are. When it comes to defending you, there is no question in their mind that they will. Love stays regardless of time or distance. Love remains regardless of circumstances or trials. Love heals, regardless of who is involved and who is not. Love forgives, no matter how much it hurts or how it all happened. Love is a gift from God, not something someone plays with for a while and then leaves…

Love in friendship is a special kind of love; a bond that automatically states, “I have your back and I will stand with you no matter what the cost.” There is a huge difference between having someone’s back and stabbing someone in the back when they are down. Having someone’s back means even if it will cost something desired the friend comes first and not the other way around.

Love pursues, not to prove someone’s “rightness” or “wrongness” but to state “I am sorry” when someone is wronged and to fix it. Sometimes fixing things means going against the current or correcting the action by reversing it. Love understands or tries to understand the other’s point of view and gives it validation even if it is not agreed upon. Love makes things right when actions have created a wrong. Then love lets it all go…

Out of all of the things that remain, the love of God will be there when others pull back and create a breach that hurts in the heart. The heart will heal, but a breach left unsettled will always remain a breach.

Appreciation is Important for YOU and Your Wellbeing!

No doubt this human experience is not always easy. We have certain needs, desires, and even aspirations. One of our needs is to be appreciated. Appreciation is a part of our need for acceptance. We can not operate optimally in our emotions and in life if we, or our deeds, are not appreciated.

It’s beautiful when we appreciate others but when that appreciation does not come back it creates a glass that is out of balance. The glass we hold is no longer full but completely drained out. This is why it is so important to surround ourselves with those who appreciate us for who we are and for what we do.

To live a balanced life, be choosy about who gets to stay in your circle of people. This includes both places of employment and personal life. When you are not appreciated and you see yourself becoming bitter, upset, emotionally drained, and sad, it means it is time to move on. Lack of appreciation will drain you faster than even physical labor. When others don’t appreciate you or walk on your kindness then it causes an energetic situation that begins to literally suck the life out of you.

If you care about your own life, then rethink the situations you are in and the people who surround you. If you are not appreciated then you are surrounded by energy vampires who are sucking you dry. It’s time to move on and move forward into a brighter and more healthy environment. It’s time to heal and be refilled again.

Remember, you deserve love AND appreciation for who you are and all that you do!

Is Love Supposed to be Defined and then Divided?

Photo by Designecologist on Pexels.com

I had to giggle out loud when I saw a posting that compared “real love vs imaginary.” I thought to myself, “Seriously?” The very first thing that spirit brought to my mind was the Scripture, ” For God so loved the world that He gave…” Of course, the personna is there ie. “he” when God clearly has been defined as spirit and not a person. Then the next place spirit went with me was the creation of the world story. Out of the higher consciousness, or higher mind of our Creator our world was formed and fashioned. Was this not a thought or imagination that created the world? So if God created the world first out of thought and imagination and God also loved the world then imagined love is still love itself. Imagination creates.

Love is defined in biblical terms in qualities such as patient, kind, long-suffering, basically tolerant, etc. Either way, love is love. It all begins with thought and imagination and it is all valid. Even if love is not returned it is still our love that is valid. Love need not be returned and there is no degree of love. Love simply “is,” and it stands on its own.

Love expresses itself in different ways through relationships. First, it is our relationship with God’s light inside of us. We express love within ourselves and in fact, should embody love if we have any sense of God. In this world, our love can be directed as friendship, romantic love, love of family, and love for our planet or pet. Where we direct love does not validate or invalidate it. Love simply is love. God is love and God simply “is.”

PLEASE don’t let anyone invalidate you because you “love” them. Your love is valid and it is alright to experience it inside of you. Would you rather have hatred? I fully believe we are not meant to love just one human on earth and that is it. We are meant to love as God loves, and see the good where we direct it! Please don’t see love as limited but a limitless gift is given to you by your Creator to direct wherever you desire!

What is Important to You?

We all have things in life that take our time. You know, those everyday things we tend to do just getting through life. My question to you today is “What is important to you?” I mean truly important. Yes, we have to eat, dress, shower, shop, and work. All of those everything things that get us through everyday living are important. I’m asking you to go deep within yourself and meditate on what is truly important to you.

Consider what things make your life worth while, what sparks your heart, and what you want to accomplish in life. What is your life’s purpose? What does that look like? What people are involved in that purpose?

Or maybe there are places you want to explore, find out about, or subjects you always wanted to know about. What people make your life worth waking up in the morning? Sometimes we get so caught up in every day functions we forget there are deeper things in life that make it worth living. Try taking some time to contemplate what those things are for you, write them down and create a vision to incorporate more of them into your life.

Life is way too important to waste one moment of it. Life life YOUR way and in a way that brings it the most meaning. Take the time to re-evaluate your visions and desires ever so often. There is so much to explore and so much to understand about our lives, our world, and our relationships with one another!

Shine Your Love Light

Photo by Quang Nguyen Vinh on Pexels.com

Did you know you are light? You carry light with you everywhere you go and in all you do. You are created in the image of your divine Creator of light. When you add love to yourself as a light being you bring the torch of light into the world and hold a candle of love.

When more than one of us gather together with love light we expose darkness around us. The dark shadow areas will rear its head for all to see. This is not a bad thing though. Shadows and things in the darkness must be exposed by light to be dealt with or removed.

When we have no love we walk blindly in life. If you gather together with those who walk blindly it’s when the “blind lead the blind” into the shadows where life becomes dark and confusing.

Remember to hold your love light today and let love burn brightly inside your heart. Send it out for all the world to bask in. Join with others to focus on divine light, love, ascension, and beauty! When you do this then these things will be all you see and experience in your life.

Loving you from here!

Love in the Highest Form

Photo by Mikhail Nilov on Pexels.com

One of the greatest experiences I had while presiding over wedding ceremonies was to see the intended couple glowing with love and happiness! What can I say, I am a total love light! I can’t help myself.

One line I placed in my ceremonies was “Love in its highest form can not help but be attracted to itself.” I loved this line! Why? Because it portrayed the law of love attraction and pronounced it to be “in its highest form.” The spoken words and thoughts received, programmed the union to be a higher form of love with one another.

Will this mean they would have easy sailing all of the time? NO! Absolutely not! Life is filled with struggles between those who attempt to relate with one another. That push, pull, and the struggle between lovers is the way they work toward forming more oneness within their union. Some do not make it, that is a given. Many do though!

There is no doubt in my mind that love in its highest form can not help be attracted to itself. This is a love that will stand the test of lifetimes. It is a love that will push, pull, and keep on struggling until a higher form unfolds. We all learn as we move along.

My wish for you today is love in its highest form, whatever that means to you for the moment. May you always strive for the prize of unconditional love in your relationships and life!

Be the Blossom You Want in This World!

Photo by Oleg Magni on Pexels.com

It can be so easy to look at the world and concentrate on all the things it is not. Just watch the evening news for a while and see how negative you become very quickly; not to mention fearful. I think it is valid to say most of us desire a world easier to get along in. Life can appear easier for those who might have more money, more abundance, more anything. Where these things are wonderful they don’t often lead to inner or outer peace.

What really truly can bring a great deal of change comes from relationships. That’s right! It’s about the way we relate to one another. If we want to see the world blossom into greater things we have to become those blossoms. Our outer world reflects our inner world. In the same way, we attract the type of energy we send out, we also can influence our environment by being the type of person we would want to relate with. Be the one you desire, be the relationships you want to see happen, and be the inner world you want to see in the outer world. Can you imagine what would happen if we all did this? We could flip this world into a zone we all love to exist in everywhere on earth!

Be Grounded and Fearless!

Photo by Daniel Watson on Pexels.com

Just as a strong tree is grounded by its roots, today make sure your foundation has you grounded. Keep your feet firmly planted into the ground to receive the rich nutrients from fertile spiritual soil.

From the top of your head imagine white light flowing graciously downward into your body. Allow this light to flow through your body and down to the root of your spine. Allow that energy to pool right at the root for a few moments. As you see yourself firmly planted allow the white energy to flow through your legs and down through your feet. Take the energy and “plant” it down through the earth. You can also physically experience this energy planting by going outside without shoes on and allowing your feet to touch the soil of the earth.

To enhance your experience lay your hands upon a nearby tree. Thank the tree for your grounding and the nutrients it provides the earth. Allow the tree’s strength to flow through you as you see yourself firmly planted and rooted into spiritual soil and allow that energy to continue to flow.

Affirm:
“I am FEARLESS! I am rooted and grounded in my spiritual foundation and my grounding is experienced solid in every area of my life!”

Love yourself today with gratitude and joy in everything you experience!
