The Cart Before the Horse














Ev-er-y-bod-y has heard the old adage..."Don't put the cart before the horse". 

And it makes good sense (as all cliches tend to do).  

However,

The Divine Universe doesn't follow ordinary rules.  

It's  so original...and creative.  

What I've discovered in my life (and I'm sure it's tucked into yours somewhere, too) is that the fabulous, infinitely wise, infinitely powerful Universe LOVES to put the carbefore the horse...and by this I mean it provides the solutions BEFORE the problems appear.


Let me explain how this plays out in my life.  


Whenever something is troubling me and I am feeling stuck...not sure how to proceed or lacking the energy or motivation to go to work on the issue...as soon as I take a moment to breathe...to relax...a soundless bell goes off (it's something I just feel) and I gently recall something I had read the day before or a comment someone had made to me recently or, even more frequently, I remember a blog post I have written that reminds me of something important I had grasped and understood earlier but have since forgotten.  And that something I have forgotten is ALWAYS exactly what I need to remember now...today...IN THIS MOMENT.


Sometimes the "direct-tions" are even more direct.


Each day I check my blog's list of the ten most popular posts.  This list is changing moment by moment.  It is based on what posts people are reading and the information is coming from around the world as I know that 110 countries have accessed my blog.  I look to see what is being read each morning and, without fail, it's something I need to be reminded of THAT DAY.


How BEAUTIFUL is that!  Individuals around the world are choosing my posts to read and, in so doing, they are ministering TO ME.  They are helping me become the next, grandest version of myself.


Talk about Love circling back to us!  I send out my thoughts and they come back to me EXACTLYwhen I need them.   


Wow!  What a system!  And that's just one example of how this beautiful dynamic works.


I KNOW...I am SURE...
that YOU have a heavenly guidance system in place. ..the CART before the horse.  


Maybe  you haven't discovered it yet.  Maybe it's hiding in plain sight...a little heavenly merrymaking and mischief.  PLEASE look around and tap into this awesome, original and brilliant celestial stratagem.  


We are all so very loved.   : )

Pilialoha!




What if you had the opportunity to holiday at a beautifulexotic island filled not only with azure watersand a mahalo moon but also with the dancing,  dazzling ambiance of vibrational  magic 

What if every move you made there...every sight you saw...or sound you heard...every thought you entertained...or word you spoke...was spontaneously translated  into anenergetic readout for your consideration...a compassionate, loving soul view of how life was unfolding through and around you!


Here you would be privy to the secrets of the Universe...you would no longer be lost in confusion or misunderstanding.  Your heart would sense and know and appreciate the hearts of others, effortlessly extending themcaring and understanding for the challenges they were experiencing...and also extending that beautifulcompassion to yourself for the work of your life journey.



What if that exoticmagical island is where you already reside...wherever that may be?  What if the power of that mysterious island magic is already in you...awaiting your discovery?



Your soul already harbors the magic of that island but the MAGIC is something we must all divine. 



Working with and through our bodies our soul sends us the subtle, sensitive energetic messages of what is truly unfolding... 

the soul view, the compassionate translation of what is behind the sadness, the pain, the outbursts of emotion...an authentic, clear and loving interpretation of our own actions and the actions of others. 


To receive this treasured transmission, however, we must possess an open heart.  A heart that has traveled beyond gratification,  power, acclaim to the search for life's meaning and has asked itself important questions:  

Who created this amazing universe? 
What role do I play here? 
What is the best way to live out that role? 
What truly brings me joy?



Our beautiful, exotic island with its soothing and serene magic dances to the sound of Love...and it is not very far away It can be found hidden in the Heart which is generously and lovingly OPEN  to every pulse of the universe.


Pilialoha!

My wish is that we all reach and realize this island paradise in 
"a bond of love".

A Little Child Shall Lead Them



Quantum physics tells us that we CREATE our life...that what we focus on manifests itself for us.  So, as creators, it is imperative that we know the foundation  from which we are creating.

Are we creating from old subconscious energy that is stuck...mired in unhealed pain, past hurts, unresolved issues?  Have these become our default engine?  Are we repeating patterns that have clearly not served us well...and yet falling back on the familiar (and, in an ironic twist, the comfortable)?

THIS may be the reason why it is so very hard to change habits and so annoying that we can't.  The old "stuff" is driving our behavior and it's been chauffeuring us around for a long  time.  And we don't like the destination we are delivered to.  It's not what we want, but it is what we get...

Unless...

we make a conscious, fully committed decision to RELEASE the hurts...the pain...the angst...we have been carrying.  At the time these injuries occurred, we were unable to transcend them...that's why they are still here.  But now, as we learn more, we can CHOOSE to free ourselves from the layers of suffering.  What felt to us like insult and injury can now be recognized as life journey decisions of others that had NOTHING to do with us (though our ego would argue otherwise).  Their behavior was all about them...their conditioning, their influences, their pain.  But, because we, too, were life journeying and filled with our own ego struggles, it seemed to be coming directly AT us.

And the cosmic plan becomes even more fascinating. Although what people do is truly about them, paradoxically, their actions function FOR us.

As we grow spiritually, we begin to sense the soul view of how life operates to bring us circumstances and people who will trigger our Insecurities and, thereby, provide us with the perfect opportunity to recognize our own issues and honor them as gifts to help us grow.  

It seems the very best way to advance spiritually is to intentionally release the layers of old conditioning that have caused our reactions through the soul knowledge that all things in the universe operate FOR US.  As Reverend Linda DeCoff says, when we receive the message through our intention (the higher consciousness awareness that we truly want to learn through any situation), the baggage we have been carrying around disappears.

Once we have released our old conditioning through our awareness of the value of the lesson, we are free to create our lives not from the shackles of the past, but rather IN 
THIS MOMENT as a young child looks at life with freshness and curiosity and wonder.  This is the way we enter our earth life...with purity and simplicity...untainted by the values of others and trusting always in what feels right to us.  

Through our dedication to gaining self-knowledge we are FREE
 to make choices and decisions based on what feels "wonderful" (little child wonderful) to us NOW...not because we are in pain..not to "get back" at someone we feel has hurt us...and not to comfort or console ourselves during a dark or difficult moment.

                                                                 
The beauty of the CHILD emerges...the child who so unselfconsciously recognizes love in each moment and appreciates so gratefully each gift of the universe...and it is this awesome, precious "child"  who leads us to the person we want to be.

Dreaming





The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend.

Henri Bergson



Quantum physics tells us that our consciousness constructs what it is we see before us. Therefore, what we are willing to conceive of and entertain is what we will experience. 


Do you wish to stand before a landscape of beauty and vibrance? 

Do you wish to see individuals generously sending and receiving love in every moment? 


Do you wish to sense Divine intelligence treasuring all of creation?


What are you prepared to comprehend? 



Is it the gift we have been given to live in this magical playground on earth? 


Is this the exquisite design of nature and all of her inhabitants?  



Is it the beauty of every human heart to have the potential to see the world through eyes of love and feel the happiness this brings?  



Can you still dream your child-self's dream of being loved so deeply and so dearly that everything you encounter and experience is a gift for your journey?

We Are Powerful Beyond Measure


I was a part of a global experiment when the waters of Katrina decimated the beautiful city of New Orleans.  People around the world (linked together by the internet which has the potential to be a true, contemporary gift of consciousness and unity) all prayed together for the cleansing of the waters contaminated by Katrina.


Three weeks later I noticed an article in U.S. World Today commenting that authorities were mystified to find that an analysis of the water from Katrina yielded no more sediment than what would be found in an ordinary storm.


And, now, we can pray together for the emotions causing the insurrection of our government to be healed.


We are powerful beyond measure.

Mum's the Word




 








It’s almostHalloween and I am a holiday junkie 

The front porch is filled with scarecrows, corn stalks, bales of hay, a black cat and some very big (and I mean big) pots of chrysanthemums in purple, yellow and white. 

 And though I love the color and texture of everything on the porch, the really big deal for me is putting my face right into the flowers and taking in their essence… the touch and smell and coolness…in other words, their vibration!  


I take breaks during the day to go out and do this. It connects me with nature’s bountiful gifts and beauty. It lifts me out of my everyday tasks and says, “We’re right here…just waiting for you to enjoy us.”  Yep, those flowers are smiling. I know it. They love to have someone get right in their faces.  


Which reminds me…I am also addicted to hugging trees. I have a particular tree in the neighborhood that lets me feel its roots straight down into the earth. I used to look around before I approached the tree, but, naw…I don’t look around anymore. I just see that beauty and go for it.
  I hug bushes, too. And have been for many years.  

Although I am no gardener, I think that this is exactly the kind of  high  that gardeners feel when they do their thing.  
Now here’s a really interesting fact I learned recently about plants and gardeners. If you are raising plants that you will eat, when you tend them with personal, loving care they produce for you whatever your DNA requires.
 

Now that’s mind blowing. And it sure tells you that the universe is alive and wanting to spread its goodness everywhere.
 

 So have at ‘em…pumpkins, flowers, trees…the whole works.  They’re just waiting for your perceptive eyes and glowing attention

Polishing of the Pearl

In the business world when a CEO wants to improve his  company's level of performance or expertise he will often consider hiring a consultant to help him perform this task. 


The consultant's credentials are usually impeccable and contain a special level of experience in the area of need.


Of course, this undertaking will require planning, checking of resources and a certain amount of financial investment.


A brilliant potential solution...but the "consultant" best equipped to do the job is... 

already here, has a spectacular resume complete with wisdom and universal insight and doesn't cost a thing.

 


This consultant comes as a gift when we enter earth school (although we often don't recognize this).


It's LIFE itself...

 

And what may appear to be a motley assortment of unrelated incidents and experiences is really  the unfolding of a glorious plan  to help us accomplish what we have come here to do.

 


Like the underside of a piece of embroidery with loose threads tumbling over one another LIFE may appear to be a series of disjointed episodes.  But, when the fabric is turned right side up...a beautiful pattern emerges and it becomes clear that all of those loose threads are playing a role in the execution of the design.

 


Michael David Lawrence, author of The Secret for Freedom from Drama, Trauma and Pain, observes:

 

"In looking back upon a quest to better myself emotionally, mentally and spiritually spanning over forty years,  I now realize how each challenge strengthened and prepared me for my next step in self growth."


If we look very carefully and very closely at our lives we can see the profound wisdom contained in the experiences we undergo.  It is not so easy  to see this when they are happening but we are constantly being strengthened and prepared for the next step of our journey.  And  it is usually the most difficult, most challenging, most painful experiences that reward us with the greatest growth.


It's the DiviƱe Universe sensing our strength and readiness to learn yet another of Life's challenging lessons and helping us move forward with this work.

 


And that is why it is important to BLESS  EVERYTHING...to EMBRACE EVERYTHING...


To  ROAR through life and meet each experience bravely and boldly...with intensity and heart.

 


We are so loved and cared for and are, every one of us, given the perfect opportunities to learn our lessons and strengthen our souls.

 


Let us all move forward in welcoming this magnificent treasure.


And why not..when ALL of our experiences are designed to  polish the pearl of our existence!
