Musings on God

January 29, 2013

Comments Off on Musings on God

God… We have had an “on and off, again” sort of relationship since I was child. I grew up viewing God as my “Father”.  It wasn’t until I was a teen that I began to lose my faith in “Him”.  How could any Father turn his children away – going as far as damning them […]

Peace As A Process

January 14, 2013

9

I’m low on energy this morning. I was low on energy yesterday too. How can I tell? I can tell by the fact that Ego – that little voice that likes to criticize and nit-pick and complain – is carrying out its business in stentorian style this morning. The messages cascading through my mind are […]

Surrender: My Own Musings

January 13, 2013

4

My meanderings… the bits of wisdom I’ve been guided to, which have spanned across this grand and beautiful web we are so fortunate to have access to have seemingly begun to center around one theme in particular as of late – surrender. I return to Kozo’s post on Everyday Gurus with regard to surrender and […]

Greatness Restored: Anything is Possible

January 12, 2013

Now, I know – as a Blogger For Peace with Everyday Gurus – I’ve been asked to post about Peace on a monthly basis, but this post has come about as a thought I had this morning, which cannot wait until next month… Yesterday, Kozo, over at Everyday Gurus, was so nice as to share […]

Eyes On “the Prize”

January 9, 2013

1

The new paradigm – in this time of “enlightenment”… If one takes pause and truly becomes conscious of the energies surrounding us, one can feel something “stirring beneath the surface”. It’s really quite exciting.  Much like the anticipation one feels as a child when the days are quickly approaching Christmas morning. The Universal Flow is moving […]

Following Our Hearts

January 6, 2013

Approximately 5 years ago, Dh and I began to contemplate his impending retirement from the military.  For nearly 25 years, he had served in one branch of the US military or another.  The lifestyle had become our family’s reality, and the thought that we could do go anywhere in the 50 states that we chose […]

Ripples of Light

November 29, 2012

I’ve been MIA for a couple of weeks.  What with the busyness of preparing for DH to come home for the holiday, the holiday weekend, recovery from the holiday (many days activity all shoved into a few), and having been overwhelmed by the energies of late…  It’s been a bit to deal with.  This morning, though, […]

Another Look At Gratitude

November 14, 2012

Comments Off on Another Look At Gratitude

The day has the potential to be a very busy one, however, I am happy to say that the service I will be presenting to the Fellowship tonight is done!  (And for that… I am most grateful!) Admittedly, I procrastinated.  I didn’t start writing and organizing it until this morning.  Why?  Especially when things are […]

So What? – Wisdom From My Dad

November 5, 2012

2

Thursday was a really challenging day for me…  One thing or another seemingly tried to push me down and keep down.  If it weren’t for my husband, who has been helping to keep me as sane as humanly possible for over twenty years now, I don’t know what I would have done. He helps me to […]

Being In This World, Not of It

November 2, 2012

7

Be in this world, but not of it. It’s a concept that I am trying really hard to implement in my own life.  It’s not easy, though, I realize.  It’s a balancing act really.  (There we go, again.  Isn’t that what I already told you it all comes down to for me?  Balance.) I find it difficult. […]

Calm Amidst the Storm

October 29, 2012

Fear. It’s something that has seized hold of all of us at one time or another.  As I mentioned to someone else most recently, I used to be so filled with fear that I had a perpetual knot in my stomach.  I can only look back at that time in my life and wonder how […]

Control: Fear Cleverly Disguised

October 21, 2012

2

Control. For many of us, much time and energy are wasted on the illusion of it. Originally, I was going to write about ‘faith’ and the difficulty I have in learning to have it.  Faith in the Universe, in others, in mySelf.  Yet, as I began to dig deeper within, I realized one thing.  The […]

Changes On the Horizon

October 17, 2012

The “New Year” is nearly upon us… Within the Pagan tradition I developed quite a few of my beliefs, it is believed that Samhain, which falls approximately at the end of October and the beginning of November, begins the New Year.  I say “approximately” because the Sabbat (or holiday) is actually based upon the journey […]

Breaking Free From the Comfort Zone

October 11, 2012

The week, it has been a busy one on this end, on all levels – mentally, physically, and emotionally.  Yesterday was no exception, but today… I am finally being given an opportunity to slow down, recharge, and follow my bliss.  How have I begun it?  By checking in with all of you – my wonderful bloggy […]

Personal Journey of a People Pleasing Chameleon

September 29, 2012

4

This morning I was thinking back on the blog post I published on Notes From My Path yesterday, Our ‘Salvation’ Through Enchantment and how we are asked to put away childish things when we become an ‘adult’. Remembering back to childhood and even adolescence, I recall that I was never quite concerned what people thought about me, my choices, or my […]

Our ‘Salvation’ Through Enchantment

September 28, 2012

As I sat down to write this post, it was my assertion that, despite the advances in our culture, here in the West (predominantly the US because that is my area of experience) we are not an overly happy people.  I did not, however, wish to say so without first checking my facts… Did you […]
