BE Serene Now

An unhealed mind is agitated. It is stressed. You can envision weights and chains. When it goes forth to teach others ‘how to be’ it invariably adds to their stress.
But there is a PLAN. Yes, Father is ‘Starter’, but Mother directs our growth. Father is ‘Over-arching Love’. Mother expresses that ‘Love’ in myriad designs. (As Holy Spirit once told me you never have ‘Style’ without substance…Love without expression! Or Expression without Love.) What a great example of Divine partnership!
Both want their children to thrive. (I suggest watching the free movie ‘Thrive’ on You-tube as a start to awakening). We do not stay in fourth grade forever. That’s why they make those desks so small! There is always a next step and a letting go to move on.
The ‘Serenity Prayer’ says to face the disturbing thought or situation and decide to change what can be changed and accept what cannot be changed. The prayer is to be shown the difference. I would add, “And forgive and drop all assumptions.”
The theraputic technique of tapping meridian points of the head, face and body while accepting personal feelings about a person or situation is called EFT. (Check out the EFT videos on You-tube and follow along for anxiety or fear,depression, even overweight.)
Are you noticing a tendency to get ensnared in ‘drama’? Here’s a clue that you are trapped in ‘drama’ by retaliating when someone pokes you, finds fault, denigrates your integrity and smears your egoic identity as less than pristine. When you ‘defend’ with ‘righteous’ indignation, you waste your time and make the situation worse. You have just made an unspoken agreement that there is something to defend. You have stepped into their ‘drama’.
Another way we attempt to deal with our fears instead of handing them to Holy Spirit to forgive and heal…is to run and hide. To try to pretend we aren’t really afraid. This is called “Disassociation”. In the reptilian brain, this is the flight response.
We can ascend to the next higher grade (and the vibes get quicker, too), when we unlearn the limiting untruths and postulated theories of our dim-witted ancestors. Then we forgive, and transmute old wounds, (they didn’t know any better, they thought they were protecting us, they felt we were too immature to handle the truth. as they subjectively saw it, etc.) We can see our experiencing trauma in that prison of lies was a needed lesson to challenge our skill at detecting the stench of lies and strengthen our resolve to break free. Character training 101!
We can then let go of antiquated belief systems, take a vacation from our burdens and partner up with Holy Spirit who, by the way, does the heavy lifting!
Accept the ‘Now moment’ as the first step in our “Great Adventure.” Example: Saint Peter had no silver or gold when he and John met the cripple at the Gate Beautiful. They gave a command in the Name of Jesus backed by Faith in that name to restore the man’s limbs to soundness. At the sound of, “Rise and walk in Jesus’ Name”, the adventure of the Jesus Movement took off!
Mother’s has good advice, “Be here, now ,right in this moment.” Thus you are going with the ‘flow’ of Mother’s PLAN.
Let’s partner with our Power-house, all-knowing Holy Spirit, follow His ‘nudge’ and see what ‘Adventure’ ACCEPTANCE will bring.
(P.S. You can pass this along as a Mother’s Day thought.)

Dream Aug. 30th, 2016 with Interp.

The Gang.   “C1” headed our duo.  I was “P3” I had a suitcase of clothes and towels and sundries.  “C1” wanted to make a ‘charity run’.  For a moment I thought he wanted to donate all in the car including my case, so I felt he was going to make me choose to release ownership.  Well, how do I feel about that?  Can I feel thrilled?  Thankful?  Blase’?  Just OK justifying that they need it more than me?  It did not come to that, but it was an exercise in release.

We visited  a lady and her gladness at our coming was written on her face.  “C1′ had brought a strip of tokens with contracts signed from a priest who wanted to rent her spare room. “C1” had added stipulations he didn’t have to for her benefit.  The token accords showed the priest had agreed.

a popular movie was playing but I didn’t want to go alone.  There was another fellow in the chair in the room with one leg crossed casually over the other knee.  He was “D4”.  I heard him mention he wanted to go, but not alone either.  I spoke up,  “Hey, D4, why don’t we go together?  He looked at me and said,  “Only if it’s ‘Dutch'”.

On our walk downtown I scanned the wooden fronts.  which of these Old western style fronts hides a theater within?  Another tag-along pointed to a marquee saying 24 hrs.  He was “D7”,  “Hey,  Here’s a really long show -24 hrs.!  Anybody want to go?”  I said, “Um, I’m not really up for that one.”

I spotted the theater we wanted, but when I unrolled my silk wallet at the window to pay my fare, I found it contained many pockets of foreign currency.  I was clueless to values, so I pulled out a small token saying 1.2.  The man took it and said I had a large amount of change coming.

 

HOLY SPIRIT, why do we have letter and number designations?  -“It is obvious that as you progress in your journeys you have many IDs.”-

Does C1 make many ‘charity runs’ and what are they?  -“He desires to assist in removing distortions by gift of ‘Light’ and answers to questions.”-

Why is my fear a loss of possessions?(The suitcase.)  -“It is  a distortion that may be removed by forgiveness and letting go.”-

What of the lady given a better deal on rental contracts?  -“What a blessing to have C1 negotiate additional blessings to a contract pre-incarnation.”-

What is the desire to attend a play with a companion even if there is no commitment to a date?   -”  the lifetime relationship thus is not as married, but as companions.”-

So antique wooden fronts describe constructs of an earth life?  -“Yes.”-

Why did I reject a 24 hr. show? -“Those long vibration shows tell a very long story.”-

What is with all the various notes to select from to pay my entry?  -“Selection times of birth country and value is hierarchy of your entity.”-

Why did I choose a small looking token, yet it turned out very valuable?  -“Just because you think 1.2 is small doesn’t mean it is.”-

Poem: This Need Not Be …inspired by ACIM, paraphrased by Shelley

Sadness Need Not Be:   Depression is from a sense of being deprived…

When you want, but do not have…  Remember This:

  You are deprived of Nothing  But by your ‘Decision’s Wish’.

Decide otherwise, and Be Wise.

Anxiety Need not be:  The Ego swings its dictates capriciously.

Its luring voice says, “Be vigilant and anxious; uphold us!”

Be Wise…Uphold otherwise.

A fatigued and dis-spirited Mind Need Not Be.

The Ego’s plotted Temptations truly offer Nothing but Lies.

See the Deception.  By choosing to focus otherwise

Your mind will be healed, you will Rise…and be Wise.

By VIgilant choosing Love over Fear

We can shun ‘Media-mongering’, and Vote with our Hearts:

Compassion over Hatred

Idealism over Cynicism

Hope over Depression

Purity over Corruption

Open Light over Darkness’s Obscurity

Sanity of Inner Peace over madness.

My Soul votes with God…

All Else Need Not Be.

 

On the fourth day of the Month

Fourth day of the Month

Meditation using a stone.

I have a Book on how concentrating on Heaven sent number sequences brings normalcy to our experiences.  In using these concentration exercises we gradually see our thoughts when in harmony with Heaven, effect positive changes.  Here is my take on using a stone to idealize one’s world.  Set one desire with focused intention and it is but one step.  A second step  is then offered to set up momentum.  What would be your first desire?  More money?  Better eyesight?  A successful outcome in a relationship or business venture?

Refocussed to Miracles

ImageTHE TATTOOED MAN:  I saw him pre-showering by the entrance to the Athletic club’s pool:  tats (tattoos) on arms, hands, back of neck.  He even had one on his cheek!  He had huge ‘bullet hole’ piercings in his ears, and their two steel ring inserts matched the studs in his bottom lip.  His head was shaved yet age-wise he could have been some kid’s dad.

I had a choice- to react out of fear, or be God’s love for this ‘Holy Child of God.’

My exercise in the therapy pool was over and I headed for the long spa tub for some soothing jets.  As I entered I reaquainted  with a lady I had spoken to last time about strained relations I was having. (Oh, you don’t know that relaxing in a spa equals gals chatting?)  I updated her that I chose to practice forgiveness, and she agreed it’s better not to add fuel to the fire resulting in more hurt feelings.  “It’s not worth it,”  we agreed.

As she left, I saw the tattooed man entering.  Now I know very well a lighthearted jest breaks the ice, so I said the first thing that came into my mind, “This is the philosophy corner.”  I wondered if it had been an obscure joke for even as I laughed, I could see he was confused.

Now I had to set him at ease.  Oh, now what was it my daughter told me about people with tattoos from her anthropology class?  Oh, yes, that each tattoo holds special meaning to its wearer.

“Which is your favorite?” I asked inching closer to hear his reply. (I had taken my hearing aids out before entering the water.)  He pointed to what looked like two red mangos joined at the bottom.  It was a puffy heart.  “This sacred heart has healing beams coming out of it.”  He said.

My! He is a proponent of Love’s power!  My confidence soared.

“Oh, then it seems to me, since it is on your hand that if you laid hands on the sick, healing beams would come to give them a miracle!”  Now I got a smile as he agreed.

So, next time you see tattoos, ask Love to take over.

One story deserves another.  Lets keep communicating.   Oh, I need to post another story about how I saw others express love…!  Look for it.

New Year’s Dream beginning 2013

My late husband liked to visit his best man and wife, so I saw this in my dream.  In it Bob wanted a cottage close by.  I felt it my job to prepare a front yard garden and I wanted it just right as our friends would walk by and see it.  But Bob had the bucket of seeds and, lacking enough calming seratonin in his system, got nervous.  He dumped the entire bucket of seeds in one spot on top of the soil!  I was aghast!

I started poking what seeds I could into the soft soil.  I woke up gritting my teeth!

God, I hear you are a God of ‘order’.  And we are here to learn lessons.  Wouldn’t they be lessons of ‘order’?  Jesus in A.C.I.M. as “J”  says this dream I made up so all offences I see I am to ‘forgive’ as not being there.  What gives?

<The answer you already know.>

Ah, all the lessons we learned of this ‘order’ – laws of seed-time and harvest, of teacher and student, of the mind tempted to stray needing food and discipline by picture symbols to apply in ‘time’ to my ‘experience’ of choosing the ‘best’ over the ‘merely good’ – that level of knowing ‘Truth’ is for success, health and happiness in the world of ‘duality’, time and space.

But why choose to learn lessons of this sort if the ‘Truth’ is a higher reality?

<To learn to forgive the seemingly ‘Out of Order’.>

What are the higher lessons?

<Courage, patience, to laugh when tempted to anger, to be your own savior – redeeming each seeming unforgivable idea by forgiving it with a higher concept of God.>

Call to action:  draw a picture of the series.  The carefully prepared ground/ the careless dumper of seed/ the offended gardener ‘s attempt to recoup a ‘loss’, the higher concept forgiveness.

 

Taking the Fourth ..of July to finish asking for H.S. interp ofmusical elevator dream

ImageI am ready, Holy Spirit to ask further.  I wish I had a draw feature to show what it is I saw.  This view of Sausalito from the ferry boat to represent a journey to a world of entertainments.  Actually the vineyards of Napa.  But that’ll do.

Holy Spirit we were discussing the hodge-podge family set up that had to stay together because of the One ticket.  Can you explain this?  < This Family is the feeling you get when adult minds guide learning minds.  It is a guided, nurturing set up and we find it is more productive than orphan or just a duo.  The One ticket represents the final mindset we are striving to engender.  Jesus’ “Atonement”  or ‘at-one-ment’ is a state of extreme grace and accord.  Staying together is a visual helping you see that vigilance is required to choose against temptations to see yourself as separated facets.>

Sort of like this Ferry picture.  It’s easy to see we are ‘in the same boat’? < Yes, You chose wisely.>

Now we head for Musical elevators (I must be hearing music.)  Can you comment on the music? < Naturally Spirit change of elevation includes change in vibration/ sound/ harmonics/ and therefore, tune.>  OKay, We need to get elevated to catch a tram into the city for our adventure.  Why the joined but separated carriages moving one after the other? <  We will repeat this visual as many times as necessary for you to understand.  Connectivity is maintained even though style changes.  Elevator/ tram/ family…all maintain connectivity of being joined together. “Be fitly joined together” means one cannot arrive at healing unless all arrive.  If Jesus got the arrival at Christ mind and you maintain connectivity with him, you also arrive.>

Is the color of the carpeted carriage important?< You are not seeing the multitudes of tones of full range color scale selected to accompany your elevation.  You will see the excellence of the array when you learn to differentiate.>  Why no handrails? < That you should be concerned with safety in our program for your elevation shows how much fear you need to turn over to trust.>

Why am I leading the entry into the elevator?  Shouldn’t it be the Man?  <I will not interfere with your choices, for if you felt coerced, you would get in a snit.  Only as you own your choices will you feel empowered to take responsibility for your creations.  I go along as the Spirit of Truth to turn to for guidance in seeing choices clearly.>

I missed the first carriage.  Was that wrong? <It only means there has been delay of the elevation because of hesitation and distraction.  Delay is not ‘wrong’, it is what it is.  Did you feel the rest of the family was so far behind you had to slow to their speed?  Yes, such is the feeling of many teachers.  But they are joyous when they can find a common lifter.  Hence enabling all to ‘stay together.>
