HAPPY FATHER’S DAY to all the men.
The weather is still erratic and seeing how the weather affects us humans, are we acting erratic? I feel the energies as we all do but I know I released a lot of erratic energy in my dream last night. Or should I say the dream I had after I went back to bed this morning as the weather is grey and rainy and also chilly. Why are these dreams so vivid and usually so chaotic? Perhaps it is to release some tension that we are still feeling. I am grateful to my dreams and also my nighttime sleeping for giving me rest and more energy for the next day.
Would you like some inspiration? This story inspired me although I have no intention of running but I did buy a wetsuit so I can take some swimming lessons. The water is always cooler in the pools where they marathon swim or “teach” others to swim. I have always wanted to learn to swim after a childhood incident where the boys on the raft kept pushing me away from the ladder and I could not get up on the raft to rest. It was my first attempt at swimming the distance from the shore to the raft so I was a novice. I still have no idea how I got up on the raft but after that episode, I always felt I had to have my feet touching the ground while in the water. Here I am on a beautiful lake and I watch people swimming with such ease that I am envious. It looks so freeing just to glide on the water without fear. I have a day pass to the YMCA to test the temperature of the water in the teaching pool and they also have another pool which is a lot warmer but it is only 4’ deep so it is no good to learn. My body does not like cold water so I usually don’t go in the water until later in the summer. My intent is to be able to use the wetsuit for lessons and also to be able to enjoy the lake much earlier. ** I did try the wetsuit on and I did not get stuck in it, I was able to get it off**
I know a lot of us keep asking why there is so much turmoil in the world. Why is Mother Nature being so finicky and causing havoc around the whole planet. AS I was reading this article, I had a knowing that through all of these disasters, there are very few deaths. This is given to humanity as an opportunity to open their hearts as well as their homes to those who have lost so much while we sit in our homes being very comfortable. We, as a species, need to be able to give of ourselves and if no one needs us, then we forget to give freely from our hearts. These disasters are reminders to humanity what really matters.
My mom was in a nursing home for at least 10 years and I learned so much from her as well as those who took care of her. Without the elderly in the nursing homes, how would all those who care for her and the other patients have the opportunity to give of themselves for others? There would be no jobs or need for all the necessary equipment or services that are provided. It is NOT us that give to them; it is THEM that volunteer to stay on earth in service to us. While my mom was alive she made me feel vitally alive and useful as well as loved. Today, my children are all independent as well as my grandchildren and great grandchild. There is no one in my family that really needs me or what I have to offer. (Advice from the elders is not really asked for today and the times of today are always busy, busy, busy). Please know that I am not feeling sorry for myself because I am very grateful that I can be independent and being independent means that I am capable of finding other avenues for my loving energy to be used. I am soooo grateful for my health and vitality. I just became aware of why I am going down this train of thought today. A dear friend, the administrator of our Senior Center was hospitalized for two weeks and now has been accepted by Hospice. Here is a woman who devoted her life to serving all who came to the Senior Center and she will be leaving us for a better heavenly home in a few days or so. And…..she is younger than I am. Boy, does that hit home and make me even more aware of the privilege it is to do for others while they are still with us.
Yesterday was a full moon and I am sure it has a lot to do with how us humans are feeling and reacting to the energies. Here is some info that is very enlightening and useful. Enjoy!
I cannot leave you without providing you with a smile.
The shortest video you’ve ever . A woman goes back to work after thirty years.Watch carefully, the video is only 5 seconds long, but, you’ll get it.
If you’re younger than 40 years old, you probably won’t understand it.
Love and Light
