"I'm leaving on a jet plane.....don't know when I'll be back again......"
Thie summer thus far has been one of not much movement for me. I have felt like nothng much is going on. Yes, the weather has been fantastic, which as a Pacific Northwest resident is miracululous and much appreciated. But, it has been very quiet outwardly and lots of stuff going on internally.
The energies have been challenging to say the least. Emotions have burbled up to be dealt with. One day I found myself in feeling very angry. There was no ryhme or reason for it and that can be difficult to deal with when you can't pinpoint it.
However, I have my trust tools and life experience that I use to move through it with little impact to be seen. Unfortunately, anger has an energy of it's own and attracts things to be angry at, like slow drivers. These are times when I seek refuge in the woods or in my bed. My motto is this too shall pass. Nothing is static in life. Life is in constant flux and you can move with it or buck it. Accept it or yell at it.
Yet, the good news is that it doesn't matter what you do in the long run. It is all just experience. The question becomes what do you want to do with it? What does it mean to you?
I asked whether the anger was mine and darn it-yes it was. I heard from my guides that it was old anger coming up to be released. I'm okay with that-not thrilled but okay, but how does it get better and what else is possible?
Thank goodness for the Access Consciousness tools that I have, the nurturing forests and the comfort of my cushy bed!
But, there was a turning point and it happened overnight. It didn't really but it felt like that. I woke up one morning and I was excited about my world again. I felt energized, happy and looking forward to what was next.
What is next is that I am leaving on a jet plane to visit a dear friend for a week. There will be walks on the beach, much talk and laughter and a few glasses of wine. The change will do me good.
So, what do you do when you feel like your world is static and it feels like you are pushing a rope uphill? I can tell you that if you ask a few questions (these two Access Consciousness questions being very good ones)
"How does it get better? "
If you do you will find that you open yourself up to new possibilities, ones that will not appear unless you are open to them. The universe has our backs. It knows what we are up too and it strives to answer our questions in any way that it can, but if you don't ask you will never find out what else is out there.
Life has a funny way of giving you exactly what you expect and if you expect that it can get better and that there is another way, even if you don't at that moment know what it is, then you will find that it can get better.
I asked those two questions frequently when dealing with a lengthy audit by the CRA. It was finally resolved and it turned out very well. I also knew that in my heart of hearts that it would. Did that mean I didn't fret? NO-I did! On and off I would fret but it wasn't for extended periods of time. I am getting better at this thing called life and I placed my trust in the universe.
Are you ready to? What would happen if you asked those two questions?
I dare you to! I triple dare you to! All the time-"good" or "bad" situations and find out for yourself what else is possible. You just might find yourself pleasantly surprised.
Today I had a conversation with a dear friend who is a firefighter. I asked him how work was. "It's okay" he said "nothing exciting. I've been answering a lot of first response calls."
He lives in an older area of a city and there are two blocks that the firefighters refer to as the "Stairway To Heaven". They call it that because a lot of older people live in the area and the pass in their sleep.
Their spouses call 911 and the unit responds. Often the spouses are confused and can't understand why the their partner didn't come for breakfast when called. My friend thought it was sad.
I on the other hand can't think of a sweeter way of leaving planet earth than while sleeping. Perhaps other ways are more exciting but in your sleep seems like a nice way to go.
He has to inform the partner that their spouse is dead. Not "passed" because it isn't allowed. Not "in heaven" because there can be no reference to religion. "Not with us anymore" and not "gone" because they might ask-"Where are they?"
We are such a careful society when it comes to death. What are we so afraid of? Why can't we just state the fact?
I love Abraham, as channeled by Esther Hicks, who refers to death as croaking!
My knowing is that we are welcomed with great celebration when we leave this planet and what could be better than that?
I believe that when it is our time it is our time, if we choose and the choice is not done on the conscious level, usually.
Often people are tired and done. But, if you wake up each morning, usually you are ready to do another day on planet earth and experience all that you came to experience. Hopefully, we can find a way to be joyous as we do but sometimes we don't and that is okay too-as long as we don't let it drag on too long. What a waste of time that would be.
I can't imagine that any of us chose to land on planet earth and declare "I will be miserable all the time!"
It may seem that way as you observe others but truly they are still here because they are trying to find the joy and the love and to remember that they are more than enough, just the way they are.
So, if that is true, if you are more than enough just the way you are, isn't it time that you started to enjoy your life? Isn't it time that you declared that joy was your prime operative for your life?
After all it is hard to be joyous and miserable, mean, miserly, hateful and in fear. It seems to me that joy is a pretty good thing to find!

This past weekend I was on an energetic ride that wasn't very comfortable. I had a big button pushed. It took quite a lot of my "tools" to ride the wave.
I believe that we are subjected to energy pulses that are here to help us. They activate that which hasn't been healed and brought into wholeness. The good news is that you can ride the wave and in the end be a long way towards being healed.
My particular button, this weekend, was finances. I am the one in our household who handles all the particulars that entails. I include my husband in the decision making but he forgets conversations we have had and then is surprised when something untoward occurs.
We had been in the midst of a reassement by CRA. It takes a long time to resolve some of these issues and they have been on going for a few years now. Suddenly, he is interested in reading the letters and it caused him to react. I get it. I reacted too. I always keep him informed but as I said he doesn't always pay attention.
He is a wonderful provider and by default I have become the money manager. If I were to pass today he would have no idea where everything is, even though I have told him multiple times. Truth is that I have recently realized that I wanted to prove that I could be good at this! Wonder where that need came from?
This last incident had him asking if I would write it all down in one place for him. Good idea I said. Meanwhile, my button was the button that felt like I was inadequate and inept with the finances. It isn't true but it feels true. There is my clue. Who made me feel this way? Where did this come from?
So I used my tools, Access Consciousness, meditating, walks in nature and anything to calm my anxious state. I also got my answers. I knew most of it and I have worked with these issues before. Mmmmmmm.......the layers are being healed.
My anxiety was passed down from my father and probably his father before him. Much of what we have to heal is ancestral. If you look at your family, your brothers and sisters, your parents you will probably see some of the same issues to varying degrees.
I am fortunate that I have the support of my husband and of friends who help me deal. I am fortunate to have the tools that help me.
It turns out that two of my friends had a similar weekend of buttons being pushed. Yep, the energies are activating stuff!
So what is your stuff? Are you ready to dea with it and heal the emotions that keep you stuck in a perpetual loop?
Ask the questions-is this something I can change? How can I change it? What will it take to change it? How does it get better and what else is possible? Then wait for the answers to come. They will. I promise.
Meanwhile, if you want some help, you can contact me for a private session and help you to deal with your buttons. I actually love to do this!
Hang in there! It will get better!
