“Attack of the Gratitudes” that is!

I was waiting for my kids in the car the other day, overhearing snippets of conversation passing me by outside.  Layoffs, “uncertain times,” so-n-so needs surgery, house hasn’t sold, Suzy needs tutoring, depression, worry, anxiety, “I’m just so tired” I heard someone say hopelessly….  

“So much worry and pain in the world, God,” I whispered.  I allowed my empathic senses to quietly take it all in and float on by.  “How do we heal it?”  “Gratitude…”  is what I heard in response.  “Sure, I know that.  But not everyone understands that energy and not everyone is in a space to just appreciate or even be patient when they feel so overwhelmed.  They are hurting.  They need help,” I said.  “Not them – you…”  I heard.  “But you got me on the gratitude circuit a long time ago.  What is it I’m not already doing? I know it all starts at home and within.  What is it you need me to do, God?  What is the step you are leading me to?”  “Not you – them!”  I heard.  And then the vision popped and opened up at once, pouring White Light over and through me.  At once I saw it all and knew exactly what I was to do.  And it made me giggle – so much FUN! 

I’m so excited to share with you the latest project Spirit has dropped into my lap!   

We all know the value that gratitude brings to all areas of life.  We increase value for what we receive when we make a point of expressing gratitude in return.  Of course, like all things, seeding this gratitude energy starts at home with us and our inner place of Being.  And there is much we do to change our lives just by changing our point of view.   

Now I would like to invite everyone to join me in a spiritual experiment – to take seeding the world with the benefits of gratitude to the next level.  This time through initiating a physical manifestation of positive healing via the act of gratitude, expressed in written form.  

In other words – write a letter and fill it with your expressed gratitude! 

All creation begins with thought.  Next comes the spoken word.  After that comes action and deed, including the written word.  Each level of creation is ever powerful in its ability to manifest physically and accentuated by the power of emotion and passion.  Let’s take our energy work to the next level as we see our communities in need of healing on so many levels:  financial, emotional, mental, physical, spiritual, fear, grief, apathy, hopelessness, etc..  All things can be healed and we can facilitate healing for others in all things.  

In this time of financial fear, and during this numerological year of incredible spiritual energy, I intend to focus on the good in my life caused by others.  Including those companies who have developed products that I really do appreciate.  I have a metaphysical philosophy about the health of companies and business being much like the health of humans.  After all, we supply those “entities” with life force energy.  Without love and positive experiences, humans suffer and fail to thrive.  When our negative experiences outweigh the positive, we become depressed and it becomes harder to remain in balance and make balanced choices.  It’s not to say that our own choices aren’t an intitial cause for what we experience.  But as we all know, the power of a kind word can do wondrous things, promote life altering change even, and sometimes prevent so much pain.   

Some of you may remember my favorite phrase “Take Joy!  Go and Infect Your World!”  In that spirit, I’ve decided to take my “Attack of the Gratitudes” to the next level.  I’m not just going to think it.  I’m not just going to say it.  I’m not even just going to email it.  I’m going to put it in physical form and write it, all the while filling it with love, healing, smiles and my gratitude – creating a physical and tangible form of the positive healing and loving energy I wish to pass on and “infect” my world with.   

Your mission should you choose to accept it:  Look around your life at the things and the people that you honestly appreciate.  Make sure it’s something your heart is really in.  And be creative!  For instance – I absolutely love my dishwasher.  I really do!  It’s a great model and makes my life so much easier!  I plan to write the company and let them know how much of a positive difference this dishwasher has made in my family’s life. 

How about you?

The Children’s Great Secret…

I have also copied this to the poetry/writing section….

Originally written and published March 14, 2003….
Republished today…

Last night I dreamed that I was shown a great secret.
That the truth of all things
and all religions
and all spirituality,
back when the world was quite new,
was entrusted first to children.

There were children of all races and kinds sitting together in a big circle,
coloring and writing and interpreting the truths they had been given.
And the circle they sat in was in the middle of a single large landmass
on the earth, with no others.

Each child was asked to focus on one or two or a few aspects that they found most important,
that they personally felt that all the rest of humanity should know, if nothing else.
And so they laughed and colored and wrote pages of stuff and beliefs and truths,
for the generations to come, so they would know.

And all the various children had different ideas,
as was natural and fitting for each of their talents and personalities
and different interpretations even among similar points.

And they were all right.

And there were beings of light there with the children,
though you could not make out their faces.
They were of every imaginable color.

And then the children celebrated together happily over their drawings and writings,
the lessons they learned and the lessons they were to teach.

Lots of singing, lots of laughing and joy.

Then the children arranged themselves and split up into groups around their circle.
They hugged and kissed one another and
then the land around them split and began to float apart,
like boats going in opposite directions from a single point.

The children stood on the edges as they floated away from each other
and waved happily, knowing they would meet again someday.

And they were happy about the new beginnings they were about to be a part of,
in teaching the future of mankind and teaching their small portion of the whole.
They knew that only by dividing the work of the whole among them,
would the world be able to have the gift of the whole when it matured.

And angels sang.

I was told to write this down,
for now it was to call back Time’s children.
It’s to be given in a young children’s book.
It must be illustrated well.
It will call unto children and teach parents.
And It is to be the first among many.

“Go and do.”

And it was after this vision that I grab the only materials I had available to me,
as I am a musician, not an artist, by heart.

I grabbed my children’s construction paper and crayons.

As an adult with dysgraphia, I cannot technically draw.
It took me years to learn to handwrite consistantly at all.
But I gave myself up to the divinty of order out of chaos.
And I scribbled.
Willing my hands to be empty vessels to channel what my guides had brought me to see.

It was then that these images were born.

"Light Beings"

"Light Beings"

This is called “Light Beings.”
This framed version is the first and belongs to my mother.

May the energy that inspired this inspire you as well.
