We all have times where there just does not seem to be words to express to someone the sorrow that you feel in their loss of a good friend, family member, animal, or way of life.

I seem to be running into this often today, and without being in the persons personal space, it sure is difficult to know that my  feelings are understood by them.

Today we have computers, and they can put forth the words that you want to say, however, a great percentage of our communication is non-verbal, so how much do they really know.

To those in my life today, this moment that are encountering losses, please know that I am with you mentally( in thought), physically (in action) emotionally ( in feelings) and spiritually (in belief).

I am with you in energy and spirit sending you

Peace, love,light and blessings!

Special love to my friend Laurie and her horse Jack, please know that I am with you in all ways!

Feelings of worth can flourish only in an atmosphere where individual differences are appreciated, mistakes are tolerated, communication is open, and rules are flexible — the kind of atmosphere that is found in a nurturing family.

RESPECT

  • Did you know that approximately 90% of all communication is non verbal. Respect the uniqueness of the person talking. You may not be understanding what they are and are not saying.

EXPRESSION

  • What does your expression tell others, and what does theirs tell you?

SILENCE

  • Know when to talk and when to be silent!

OBSERVE

  • Observe you, your actions, body, feelings and how they are affecting your communication with the other person. Observe the other person and what they are saying through their body, actions and feelings, not just their words.

UNDERSTAND

  • Learn how to speak, listen and process the other persons words by first understanding how you personally speak, listen and process information.

RESTATE

  • Let the other person know what you heard them say, and clarify for them what you have said if you don’t think that they understand you. Be clear and direct.

CENSORING

  • The person you are communicating with will only hear what you are saying from their personal perception. When you are listening to them remember to understand their perception without clouding it with your perception.

EXPECT THE BEST

  • You get what you expect! Begin with the end in mind. How do you want it to be? This is called intent!
Peace, love, light and blessings!

Please Hear What I’m Not Saying

Don’t be fooled by me.
Don’t be fooled by the face I wear
for I wear a mask, a thousand masks,
masks that I’m afraid to take off,
and none of them is me.

Pretending is an art that’s second nature with me,
but don’t be fooled,
for God’s sake don’t be fooled.
I give you the impression that I’m secure,
that all is sunny and unruffled with me, within as well
as without,
that confidence is my name and coolness my game,
that the water’s calm and I’m in command
and that I need no one,
but don’t believe me.
My surface may seem smooth but my surface is my mask,
ever-varying and ever-concealing.
Beneath lies no complacence.
Beneath lies confusion, and fear, and aloneness.
But I hide this. I don’t want anybody to know it.
I panic at the thought of my weakness exposed.
That’s why I frantically create a mask to hide behind,
a nonchalant sophisticated facade,
to help me pretend,
to shield me from the glance that knows.

But such a glance is precisely my salvation, my only hope,
and I know it.
That is, if it’s followed by acceptance,
if it’s followed by love.
It’s the only thing that can liberate me from myself,
from my own self-built prison walls,
from the barriers I so painstakingly erect.
It’s the only thing that will assure me
of what I can’t assure myself,
that I’m really worth something.
But I don’t tell you this. I don’t dare to, I’m afraid to.
I’m afraid your glance will not be followed by acceptance,
will not be followed by love.
I’m afraid you’ll think less of me,
that you’ll laugh, and your laugh would kill me.
I’m afraid that deep-down I’m nothing
and that you will see this and reject me.

So I play my game, my desperate pretending game,
with a facade of assurance without
and a trembling child within.
So begins the glittering but empty parade of masks,
and my life becomes a front.
I idly chatter to you in the suave tones of surface talk.
I tell you everything that’s really nothing,
and nothing of what’s everything,
of what’s crying within me.
So when I’m going through my routine
do not be fooled by what I’m saying.
Please listen carefully and try to hear what I’m not saying,
what I’d like to be able to say,
what for survival I need to say,
but what I can’t say.

I don’t like hiding.
I don’t like playing superficial phony games.
I want to stop playing them.
I want to be genuine and spontaneous and me
but you’ve got to help me.
You’ve got to hold out your hand
even when that’s the last thing I seem to want.
Only you can wipe away from my eyes
the blank stare of the breathing dead.
Only you can call me into aliveness.
Each time you’re kind, and gentle, and encouraging,
each time you try to understand because you really care,
my heart begins to grow wings–
very small wings,
very feeble wings,
but wings!

With your power to touch me into feeling
you can breathe life into me.
I want you to know that.
I want you to know how important you are to me,
how you can be a creator–an honest-to-God creator–
of the person that is me
if you choose to.
You alone can break down the wall behind which I tremble,
you alone can remove my mask,
you alone can release me from my shadow-world of panic,
from my lonely prison,
if you choose to.
Please choose to.

Do not pass me by.
It will not be easy for you.
A long conviction of worthlessness builds strong walls.
The nearer you approach to me
the blinder I may strike back.
It’s irrational, but despite what the books say about man
often I am irrational.
I fight against the very thing I cry out for.
But I am told that love is stronger than strong walls
and in this lies my hope.
Please try to beat down those walls
with firm hands but with gentle hands
for a child is very sensitive.

Who am I, you may wonder?
I am someone you know very well.
For I am every man you meet
and I am every woman you meet.

Charles C. Finn

Frustration! Too much is happening:

  • Personally with me
  • With my family
  • My Friends
  • My community
  • My work
  • My pets
  • The weather
  • The world
  • The climate

Then I watch TV, listen to the news, weather, sports, answer telephone calls and questions, check out the computer, face book, email……..and then I question why I am frustrated!  Today, I will turn off the radio, TV, and only do the things I choose to do because I want to do them in the moment, not because I have made them into a routine and habit!

Peace, love, light, blessings and solitude today!

Today there are many questions about where religion ends and spirituality begins, or does spirituality end and religion begin, or are religion and spirituality the same thing in the same place…..and that is just the beginning of the confusion for many today. This is a story of unravelling the mystery of where one begins and the other ends!

I was doing a training program with individuals who were embarking on a career of working with people in the helping industry and a woman walked into the program praising the Lord every time she said anything.  I noticed the other participants of the group beginning to get very upset and distance themselves from her physically, and mentally they tuned her out each time she had anything to say.  She had some very valid information to share, however, her sharing lost all impact because of her involvement and inclusion with religion in all that she did.  No one would give her any feedback about what she was  doing, because each time anyone did attempt to give  her any information she made sure to let us know that her husband was a Pastor, and she would then quote him and the bible stopping all information in it’s track.  It became very evident to all of us in the program that religion had become a shield, a defence mechanism to keep people away from her!  I spent much time contemplating how to approach this issue and then miraculously I walked into the group one day, opened my mouth and began to talk about how easy it is to confuse spirituality with religion.   The 15 people in the group began to relate their stories and the confusion that existed for them around this issue.  About 75% of the group stated and agreed that:

  • every human being has a right to have their own personal beliefs about everything and that includes religion
  • No other person  has the right to demand what they individually believe in
  • Most of them did not go to church,
  • They all had strong belief systems,
  • They  believed themselves to be spiritual beings
  • They did not believe that going to church made them spiritual
  • Going to church made them religious
  • religious doctrine did not fit with them and their personal belief systems
  • They all believed in a god, creator, and the acceptance of all doctrines
  • They did not appreciate anyone telling them that if they were not Christian in someone else’s eyes that they could not and would not be successful in creating their own lives!

It was amazing to watch the Pastors wife really listen to what they had to say.  She agreed with every point and stated that she did not realize that religion and spirituality were not the same thing.

From that point forward in the training program, she became accepting of all human beings, no matter what race, creed, color or religion they were.  In the eyes of humanity and in life she accepted the fact that we are all one, with our own unique religions and spiritual beliefs and who was she to think that her religion was the only one for everyone!

Today, she is working with people and making a real difference in their lives because of her understanding of the uniqueness of individuals, mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually and she knows now that

RELIGION AND SPIRITUALITY ARE NOT THE SAME THING!

The group determined that everyone in the group was a spiritual being, however, each one of them had their own religious doctrines including being an atheist which was also seen as being a spiritual belief system!

AT THIS TIME IN HISTORY IT IS IMPORTANT FOR US ALL TO UNDERSTAND HOW IT IS THAT WE FORWARD THE INFORMATION THAT WE CARRY ONTO THOSE WHO ARE AROUND US WHO ARE IMPORTANT TO US!

In simplicity dear ones, the way that we do this is to communicate, however, it is important for you to understand what communication actually is.  We communicate from the core of our inner being to the exterior of our physical body.  These messages that we relay go out in the form of energy to all that exist on earth plane and beyond.    You ask how it is that we communicate from our inner being?

Our inner being is a complex series of energy waves, that pulse and move, backwards and forwards through all that we know of as psychological time as well as moving through real time which in theory can be called simultaneous life times!  It is most important for us today to understand only the time that is right in front of us right now. Keep in mind that the vantage point that you have at this time of transformation is the vantage point that you need to have to communicate all that you are and all that you require on your unique journey through this lifetime.

Every form of communication that we use today has one thing in common!  Simply dear ones, the one thing you need to be aware of  is how you think. Your thoughts are the base of all communication, and all communication is based on how you think.  When you think negative thoughts through the need to be in control, in order to escape the fear that exists for you in this moment, what you put into the world is the negative energy that is being created through the negative thought!  It is the thoughts that we have that create the energy waves that go out into our all of planet earth, the world, universe and beyond!

The thoughts that we have create the way that we communicate on earth plane through:

  • the spoken word
  • the language spoken
  • the unspoken word
  • the feelings
  • the senses
  • the written word
  • the unwritten word
  • body language
  • personal language
  • cultural language
  • pictures
  • music
  • silence

Technology today has reinforced many of the more negative forms of communication because of not being able to pick up the energy being forwarded to you from the same location, however, those of you who have gone before you who are you, are with you throughout this communication, guiding the energy to create the reality that you require in your being right here right now!  Dear ones, all that is necessary for you to communicate what you want to express is think the thought and become the thought, Mentally, Physically, Emotionally and Spiritually the thought will then go out into your world vibrationally to all!

Peace, love, light and blessings as you communicate to  your world through your thoughts and energies.
