Wounded Explorations


Namaste Wondrous Exploration of Humanity!

I greet you with the hope of restoration and well being … with the AHmazing resilience that is the human Spirit that lives, and moves and breathes through each of us and all of us. The above picture is from today’s daily Play & Pray Calendar at New Thought Families. It reads:

StarPlay:
Play doctor today! Tend to any and all wounds you feel in your body, mind, Spirit by identifying them … with bandaids! Put bandaids on yourself or your teddy bear or a piece of paper with a picture that represents you. Tend to your wounds by seeing that they are there, putting a bandaid on them, put a smiley face on the bandaid, and zap all the spots with all the Love & light you can to bring wellness! You can also do this for the wounds of loved ones you know or for those hurting in this world you’ve never met. Zap out lots of loving healing and wellness!

StarPray:
Play Thank You Mother/Father Creator for the wonder of restorative wellness & healing happening now in my body, mind, and Spirit. I align with the divine shine of my design to allow Your light of Love to heal any wound within me and restore wellness and wellbeing. I send this healing light out to all beings now. I pray that everywhere there is pain and wounding of any kind, Your Love is there in restorative wonderment! We are all truly well with Your Love!

This message speaks to where I am today … torn up body and rattled Spirit from my move into the new home. Despite my previous work, it turned into a bit of chaotic ninja packing at the end facilitated by some wonderful helping angels with skin on! Thank you all! I am indeed infinitely blessed. And! It will be a long Christmas season of opening boxes and bags in surprise of some of what was last minute packed.

Truth is, this expanded move has so far to be so much more ~ and somewhat different ~ than what I’d expected. Yet! As all of life does, it is perfectly showing me much of which is easily forgotten. Nothing like going deep into the cupboards and closets! Inevitably, I found low lying layers of shame which no doubt added to the physical pain in my poor body temple.

And guilt! As I was moving this RIDICULOUS amount of accumulation, the CA wildfires destroyed so many homes ~ the whole town of Paradise. Some folks did not make it out.  They burned in their cars trying to make it through a wall of flames and some died in their homes in what was a mighty fire storm that gave no time or chance to flee. Therein, the ones who lots their homes and all their possessions are the lucky ones. And as this was (is) going on, I was literally beating myself up at least physically to move all my massive amount of ‘treasure’. I do intend to find ways to give my excess to those in need.

As discussed here some weeks ago in Vibrational Vision,, the vibrational scale of consciousness bottoms out with guilt and shame so it behooves us to always reach higher! Though I do feel zapped and exhausted, I also feel infinitely blessed and welcoming to this expansion I said yes to. Perhaps we will explore more deets here in the coming weeks! For now, I continue to move forward ~ using ho’oponopono daily as we explored in the Utterly Fearless Universal Love post here 1 month ago.

As I embrace my 56th birthday this weekend, I continue to return to Love for myself and the existence I have chosen to express. I close with another prayer of compassion for this latest group of fire victims in my home state of CA as well as all beings on this planet who suffer greatly.

Holy Creator of all that is, we align with you now knowing the infinity of divinity is in all of life in every moment. We see, know, affirm and confirm the divine order of all, for all. May all the wounded ones in this world suffering in so many deep ways, be held up by Your Love through angels of all kinds. May all beings be compassionately blessed with help to have all needs met. May the peace that passeth understanding prevail as we each and all live the Love You created us of. And so it can be. And so it is!

Thank you for being here and for continuing to do what is yours to do, to align with the shine of your own divine design … to live fully, loving, protecting, nurturing this gift of life for ourselves and all others. Keep reaching high and allowing your heart to fly free! Namaste, Love.

Wisely Wondering


Namaste Wise Ones Walking This World With Wonder!

I greet you in the name of wonder and the expansive opportunities it lends us ~ the power of WOW! As I am in the intensity of packing and moving, I expand out into our nation and the midterm elections that happened this transformational Tuesday. I further open the wise eyes of my heart to know that this wonderful Wednesday is Diwali for Hindus worldwide. Light filled Diwali! A celebration of light over dark, good over evil. Yes, there is much to wonder about this WOW day on planet earth.

As humans, we often walk this world full of judgments. Sometimes smugly, knowing that we are wise in our truth. Sometimes, we walk our path with downright righteous indignation. And so it goes with the continued, charged political climate we are living ~ not just here in America but worldwide. It is a sign of where we are as humanity ~ the natural ascension we are growing into as humanity, has a huge backlash of resistance and insistence on lies like white supremacy. We must continue to align with the shine of our divine design ~ meeting these challenges with compassion, justice … and wonderment. When we do, we can WOW ourselves and each other with the power of Love.

Yesterday, I witnessed something that disgusted me and wounded my heart yet in later reflection, I see it as an invitation to curiosity and compassion. My rural county is more red than blue. Still, I was somewhat shocked to see a small group that included kids holding Trump signs and selling maga t-shirts yesterday at an intersection. We are indeed at an intersection in our history. What hurts my heart is that kids are experiencing Trump as a positive through their parents. In my music classes at the school last week, I had a 1st grader dressed as Trump and I had to wrestle with mixed feelings for sure. I find it appalling that any parent would want that kind of example for their child. The bald face lies, bullying, and mean spirited divisiveness he spouts that incites crowds to cheer can send me to righteous indignation straight away to be sure. It is the timeless dance of Love and fear. So! Deep breath. Transformational tool of curious wondering instead of judgmental knowing leads me to a greater, compassionate wisdom. More peace. Yes, peace begins with me … and you … and him … and her … and us … and ‘them’. Let us work together for yes blessed oneness!The election results were full of disappointments for me and for many … Yet! Many triumphs as well … for both ‘sides’ … ultimately and hopefully our divided nation will not fall but continue to grow … stronger, better, more compassionate and aligned with the shine of our divine design as we learn to let Love lead us into working together for the highest good of all.

On the home front, I have used the tools of wonder and WOW as I pack up my life including all the stuff that is mine, Jeremiah’s, and Creative Spirit Families’. I am trusting ~ myself first and foremost ~ and definitely my reliance on Spirit and faith in divine order. Though there are many contributing factors, the house being built next to me here helped push me out of the nest fairly simultaneously to my little birdie flying free. There are many aspects of this new build I could complain about yet I have been practicing wowness for the wonder of what it is to take stacks of wood and make them into a house. People, we are co-creators, more powerful than we dare to know, and we can co-create Ahmazing creations of all kinds! Let us trust Spirit and ourselves to keep creating light over dark, good over evil, Love over fear.

Fear builds walls, Love opens doors!

And so let us keep opening the doors in our own minds and hearts with wonder and wowness for what is to be alive, to see injustice and work for change, to recognize walls of fear in ourselves and others and to choose to take the walls down brick by brick. And as we all build, clean, maintain our own house of Love, mind/body/Spirit, home/community/country/world, may we marvel at what it is to live this gift of life and let this sense of wowness buoy us up to do what is ours to do where, when, how it is ours to do it.

For my part, there is still plenty in the making for Creative Spirit Families and Leaping Literacy ~ in our new, forthcoming abode and beeeeeeeeeeeeeyoooooooond! Our Leaping Literacy Library Free Shelf is stocked with exuberant, wise wowness for November so sign up or in with your free Leaping Literacy Library Card to celebrate spirituality and literacy with us including 3 short Spirit songs from the new CD!
Wishing you and all of us transformational moments of expansive wonder and exuberant WOW! Namaste, Love!

Vibrant Vision

Namaste Transformational Thought of Vibrant Vibration!
I greet you in the name of small, mighty power … a thought, a smile, a laugh. In the myriad of moments that make up our days and our lives, may we remember the potency in each of them like a delicate violet. Violets are tiny flowers with a potent smell. I used to sit among them as a child imagining and sensing the fairies that lived in their midst. The smell of them collectively packed a powerful punch that could transport me into realms of possibility and potentiality. Vision is made up of such tiny thoughts and moments easily forgotten in the expanse of volume that fills our lives individually and collectively.

So with a deep breath of quiet, I pause here in another week of troubling national and global news. I send a prayer out for all the senseless suffering … to Pittsburg for the lives lost, massacred by a madman at the Tree Of Life synagogue, to the thousands of families seeking asylum and refuge here, to all those working to get out the vote in our midterm elections, to the known and unknown people and causes that don’t make the headlines, I send prayers now. I send a wave of violet medicine; potent smell, color and delicate beauty of goodness. Emerson said, “The earth laughs in flowers.” Laughter is known to be the best medicine and I just heard a definition of laughter as “the tangible evidence of hope.”

As I sort and pack up my life to move down the street into my next co-creation, I am surrounded by the piles of overwhelm that is the flipside of my abundance. As I prioritize and calendarize, some things fall off the list and others are done not as I would like or as I had envisioned. With that concept in mind, I offer you Happy Halloween greetings from the Leaping Literacy Library Free Shelf:
From the Library Free Shelf & archives, here is a sentiment for the day with bones, brought to you by a me I barely recognize! This Vimeo video password is: SMHBones

And so it is we can honor life by embracing this moment, this day, this life. We can allow grace and goodness into our awareness and into our existence, flowing freely through our hands, feet, thoughts, words. We can bring hope to ourselves, each other, this world, with something as simple as laughter. Let us heal ourselves and this world each monumental, mindful moment… As my song sings, “The world is changed small after small.” Namaste, Love!

Vibrational Vision

Namaste Visionary Vibration of Vitality!

This transformational Tuesday is a vibration celebration! It is all too easy to forget about vibrational energy even though it is running 24/7 co-creating our lives consciously or unconsciously. Vibration is measured by some like Dr. David Hawkins Scale of Consciousness. On Hawkins scale, 0-1000, 500 is unconditional Love which is a high(est) state to attain to for most. 1000 is pure enlightenment. At the bottom of Hawkins’ vibrational scale of consciousness is shame:

Most of us live in certain flux of emotional isness using our transformational tools to bring us into more alignment with our highest and best (feeling) selves. The lower frequencies like guilt and grief simply don’t feel good and make for a negative experience of life. The more fear based our lives, communities, nations, the further from Love and living in higher consciousness we are. Vibrate HIGH! Because we operate so much of the time in a relative unconscious state, listening to high, vibrational frequencies is one of the  best ways I have found to live more Love. YouTube has a plethora of these frequencies for free from peeps like Elke Neher and channels like Meditative Mind and ZenLifeRelax who has one of my favorite Love frequencies played here:

I love the power of these frequencies to bring us home to Love. As vibrational beings, we naturally align with vibration so as the Obamas always said, “Go high!”

In bringing our consciousness higher, visioning is a powerful tool that helps us see our way open up. When we act on those higher callings, we are voicing our vision in the ways we show up.The picture above is a vulture from today’s Play & Pray Calendar at New Thought Families:
The Play Invitation reads:
Visit your inner vulture today to voice your vision! Vultures are birds that clean up messes that many other animals will not touch. Vultures often eat animals that have died and are just laying on the ground or road. In this way, vultures help with the full circle of life. So! Look around your own life and deep in your heart for anything that needs cleaning up or needs to be brought full circle. Find creative ways to voice the vision of what you find … words, song, art, dance, or any other expressions. How will you voice the vision that calls loudest to you?!

Shout out to the vulture! And! Case in point that in the full circle of life and vibration, clean up and rev up go with the territory!

My own home front is full of mess as I prepare to move. I am faced with the too muchness that is me and has become my state of ‘stuff’. I am constantly reframing instead of blaming and shaming myself for the accumulation. It is actually a sacred time of re-evaluation and VISIONING where I am headed with all this stuff and why I collected it in the first place! I am letting my inner vulture have a good time with the clean up 🙂 !

Though there is strong argument against, I am simultaneously doing at least a bit of this in my online world of the Leaping Literacy Library as I try to prioritize some time and offerings. I’m not so much for traditional Halloween yet am offering some different takes on it with special daily bonus giveaways on the Free Shelf. Today’s special was all about the mystery. I pulled a Mel & Nell Laurie StorEBook out of the long ago archives regarding history as a mystery … told by ‘they’, ‘who are they’?! The ABC Mystery is AHmazing alliteration and the Spirit inspiration celebration I have loved for so many years, The Mystery … playing here and now!:

Whatever media or other experiences you bring in, moment by moment, day by day, they will surely have an effect on your vibrational field. We are made beautifully with an inner GPS to ever guide us home to Love. Remember, whatever you feel, you are vibrating and radiating into the world. So keep visioning, seeing, being the Love or above of beautiful you and attract the same mirrored back to you! Namaste, vibrational, vibrant voice of Love!

Utterly Fearless Universal Love

Namaste Unified Breath Of Love Expressed!

I greet you this Transformational Tuesday a bit breathless from my recent dance with fear. Fear! AKA the absence of Love. While I have recognized a presence of subconscious fear within me for some time, it is not often it surfaces so acutely in my day to day.

While there is plenty in the collective to tap into, this creation is solely mine. In the work of this week’s transformational tool, ho’oponopono , a Hawaiian practice of reconciliation and forgiveness, everything, inside and out, is our creation. It is our responsibility to live it as Love.

“The purpose of life is to be restored back to Love , moment to moment.”
~ Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len

Dr. Len famously cured every patient in the criminally insane ward of a Hawaii State Hospital without ever seeing a single one. Whaaat??! He sat with their charts and repeated, “I’m sorry. I love you” and one by one, each patient was cured. The full ho’oponopono has 4 statements, I’m sorry. I love you. Please forgive me. Thank you.

Dr. Len has a website with wonderfully wise writings. In his ‘House Divided’ article, he writes:

“A house divided against itself cannot stand. This is true for nations, communities, organizations and families, as well as for individuals. In the House of Humanity, the individual is the common denominator. When the individual is divided, the house is divided.

In the game of tennis, the scoring system is Love, 15, 30, 40, game. The game begins with Love. In the etymology of the word, Love is no score, no stakes, nothing, to take the individual back to Love to nothing, to wholeness.

The process achieves this by voiding anger, fear, blame, resentment and thinking from poisonous thoughts, toxic energies that divide the mind, the house of the individual, causing it to fall to dis-Harmony and dis-ease.”In my own dance with fear, I actually didn’t use ho’oponopono though I will moving forward! I worked with my guides and angels, the Healing Codes for (un)forgiveness and came to as much self acceptance and self Love as possible. In this ongoing dance, I am happy to be reminded and encouraged to use this Hawaiian wisdom.

In the above referenced article, Dr. Len gives another valuable tool I am going to try:
“Here is a thought cleansing tool that anyone can apply to void toxic energies from his or her thoughts. Mentally think: “I turn the Light Switch on my thoughts of me and my family, relatives and ancestors.” There is no limit to the number of times that this tool can be used. The tool is a petition to Love to clear toxic thoughts of yourself and of your family, relatives and ancestors that divide your Mind, your house.”Ah, home. Place of heart, place of hurt … Yes, home is where the heart is and all too often, home is where the hurt is. Yet through transformational tools of consciousness, we can transform our hurt back to Love. As Dr. Len says, “The purpose of life is to be restored back to Love , moment to moment.”

And so it is I have surrendered all my fear to the mighty power of Love. It so happens, this dance I have been doing is all around home. I have chosen to follow Jeremiah in leaving the comfortable nest we lived in the last 8+ years. He, of course, off to college. Me, just down the street into our little town. This little move caused some big rumbles in me and in some family, you know, money and history and such. I will offer some classes and experiences there like I did in my little studio last fall:In coming back into peace and alignment with my decision, I am calling the new place, my ‘Happy Hippie House’ and the move will be in a few weeks … my growing stuffed animal family can’t wait! As I build the new nest, with a nice corner for Jeremiah to come home to on breaks, I am using the gifts of intention and purpose for all aspects of my work & callings to offer transformational experiences for others, and I guess, ultimately for myself ~ to live fearlessly and full of Love … moment by moment!

This Friday, our Leaping Literacy Library Free Shelf will begin the 13 Days Of Halloween with daily specials like the Laurie StorEBook, Can You Hear Fear? with Mel & Nell! 

Thank you so much for being here! Thank you for your willingness to share with me, and mostly thank you for showing up fearlessly to transform all back to Love. May your house stand united in Love, and only Love. Blessed Be.

Unification Communication

Namaste Unified Field Of Forgiveness, Trust, and Understanding!

I greet you in the name of unity and oneness … from the depths of the national division fanning the flames that continue to illuminate the darkness of who we are and who we have become. Us. All of us. Victim and abuser. Right and wrong, right and left. As spiritual beings in these turbulent times, we are ever called to the light. We are called to be centered in the light and to uphold the light as the center of the circle of life.

Remember, we choose who and what we let into our circle. Perhaps more importantly, we choose how we feel and interact with all that is around us. Daily updates of THE Server can unify our hearts with harmony, peace, even happiness in the midst of painful shadows looming large. Each of us is faced with daily choices in how to navigate the negative, let go of the addiction to suffering, and perpetuate peace and well being for ourselves and others. While spiritual practice is an individual journey and an ‘inside job’, today, we reach for unity and oneness.

So ya, I am aligned with the Letter U in the ABCs for Humanity Play & Pray Calendar at New Thought Families. And! I am finding that practicing Oneness and Unity as a Transformational Tool is greatly helping my understanding! Perhaps it can help you too? Let’s try it together!

Align with Divine Order in the Circle of Time
Close your eyes. Think of a situation, political, personal or otherwise that just feels WRONG. Think of something (or someone!) that you wanted in your life that you didn’t get. Think of what (who!) you got instead. Feel grateful for the way things turned out in the circle of time. See if you can build the good feelings of gratitude and right outcome before returning to your original thought of what/who is WRONG. In the circle of time, can you send some grateful acknowledgement to the divine order that is surely unfolding? This may or may not work for you though I guarantee it will work better the more you practice it!Unite In The Circle Of Life
We live in a circle. Humanity has caused so much pain and suffering and continues to do so. Sigh. We cannot escape the victimization of our ancestors and of this very land we call home. Yet we can work to transcend it through expanding our understanding and embracing as much unification as possible. As Kali, the great Goddess of endings and beginnings says, “The old must be released so that the new can enter.” Understanding can help us give up … old systems, old habits, old ways of being and thinking.

As Unity sings in ‘The Peace Song’, “Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me”. Ultimately, the best place to begin the unification process is with ourselves. I have been unifying with old phases of me and of my life triggered through the ending/beginning of Jeremiah moving onto college. Also, like so many #metoo women, I have been looking at so many of the old traumas that seemingly shaped large parts of my choices and creations. Shine the spotlight on the shadows to grow new, light filled potentialities and realities! Also, lovingly, compassionately, unify with all of who we be … As my ‘Shine Through The Shadows’ song sings the old saying, “You can’t run from your shadow.” But you can unify with it! Truly, before I can unify with ‘other’, I must unify with me, myself, and I!YES! Unify with the unique unicorn you truly be! Transformational Tools of unification can be unique to you; use your imagination and vision, compassion and intuition to guide your heart into a more and more unified you. Unify past, present, future vision. Unify your gifts, talents, yes and no’s to how your time, talent, and treasure flow.

In the Spirit of imagination, word play and the ultimate YOU, below is a Laurie StorEBook, Ultimate U, from our October Leaping Literacy Library’s Free Shelf. May we all keep unifying ourselves and thereby each other into more of the upmost oneness and yesness of true Love expressed. Namaste Unified One!

Trust The Truth To Transform

Namaste Trustworthy Truth of Transformation!

So it is that I am here on Transformational Tuesday, the 1st of 13 left in 2018. Truth is, I am just called to commit to this so I am. Maybe it is a needed gateway to get me back into social media in general ~?~ or perhaps through a bit of dedicated discipline, this little series of 13 Transformational Tuesdays will be of service to someone or someones besides me?! Truth can be illusive yet a necessary foundation to well being. Thereby, we begin with truth. And trust. In the era of fake news, we are collectively more focused on truth these days. National and global dramas can pull us in to a swirl where lies seem more prevalent than truth sometimes. I have been astounded over and over how people I respect believe things (politically) that to me, seem to be blatant lies. As spiritual beings in this human experience, we must constantly tether to what is true for us personally and then hold the highest vibration we can for others and for the collective. When we are rooted in the light filled truth in our hearts, we bring a higher perspective to the table.

In the pervasive chaos, it can be hard to keep tethered to our truth. In times of change, our personal truth may shift. In navigating the end of a mothering era, I found myself off center. Someone used the word ‘disorienting’ when describing her own daughter’s departure some years back and THAT WAS IT! I was feeling so disoriented! Yet! No matter what we are facing,  Spirit is always here to bring us back home to our hearts and the truth of who we truly be that lives there. Yes, we do have to stay aware of our wounded heart in deciphering truth so when emotions are present, they must be danced with … felt, honored, and ultimately transformed into higher power.Today’s Transformational Tool:

While we find our spiritual truth in our hearts, it is our minds that often must do the work to allow the natural progression of transformation, aka FREEDOM from pain! Today’s tool is Byron Katie’s The Work available in this free PDF. Katie discovered her suffering was attached to whether or not she believed her thoughts. Hence, the work begins with the question, “Is it true?” Like all truth, “The Work” must resonate with you for it to be a tool you will use.

We know that thoughts create our reality so if we do not like our creation, thought is a great place to start!

And! We can’t ever forget the power of our hearts for trust, truth, transformation. Whatever we continue to be called to, is our truth. If the calling and truth feel good, feel like Love, than we are surely home in our heart truth … and ultimately remembering more of the truth of our being!

I continue to be called to my own work and to share it here. Here is a bit of the Farm Day I invited you to here in the September blog a few days ago … our Feature Creature Teacher, Peacock hid most of the day yet I got the pictures below and Tina the emu was a favorite for her loud, thumping drum-like heart beat. All ages had a restorative, fun gathering! More pictures here.

Our October Leaping Literacy Library Free Shelf is stocked with lots of transformative goodies including 3 songs from the new CD! We will be offering lots more freebies this month during the 13 days of Halloween. YAY! Let’s play!

Thank you so much for being here in the Spirit of truth, trust, transformation. May the thoughts of your mind and your heart guide you well into ever more fullness of your yesness expressed. Namaste, Love!
