Some time ago my daughter was walking near her apartment in New York City and happened upon my first name written on the street in white paint, very graffiti-like. She took a picture of it and sent it to me in an email without explanation and I was taken aback because it looked rather bizarre in the shimmery cast of the evening light. When I asked her about it later, she laughed and said how strange but fun it was to see it and had she not looked down at that very moment, she would have missed it.
When we notice change and think about it or agonize over it as the case may be, we realize we are continually evolving, changing, becoming. If we don’t embrace change, then what are our options? It seems much better to feel good, even if it requires a bit of “reorganizing”. I try always to focus on the present moment, because the present is the only time that offers us choices.
This Journal entry was born when I spotted these words printed on my tea bag: “Your head must bow to your heart.” As a teacher, I know my sixth sense is the most important. While I honor the other five, I know that our sixth is the biggest in the scope of sheer power if utilized on a regular basis. Like a muscle, we can use it or lose it. It is the most divinely connected, like an always-available telephone line to our higher consciousness. It is always ready, just like a trusted friend who will gladly drop everything when you call.
We’re in such an exciting time! Do you feel it? Change is upon us, and is long overdue. This is a time when major shifts are occurring in our culture, economy, and spiritual awareness. Those who are aware and awake predicted all of this. The old paradigms we’ve lived by for centuries just aren’t working anymore. So here we are on the brink of a new beginning. A global rebirth that has been in the works for a very, very long time.
Let’s look at our upcoming election. Not in a factual way, but with new eyes: our soul eyes. They are located in two places: our divinely spiritual third eye, centered on the forehead just above our eyes, and in our heart — the largest energetic center we have! In my heart, I feel that we all don’t need to come together factually, we need to come together vibrationally. For the good of one and all, we must journey beyond excessive thinking and move into our heart. Oh, you say, isn’t my brain in my head and that’s where my decisions come from? Yes, it can be difficult to leave the logical world and enter the space of feeling and emotion. But when we live too much in our head, we bypass our true nature and our authentic selves. We obsess about the facts and our choices.
My husband and I recently brought a new dog into our lives from a local shelter. We weren’t really too serious about adopting a dog, but we went out a couple of times to investigate. It was a tough decision because we had become used to our freedom: what happens if we get a really tough dog to handle, or if we have issues with training and adapting? I called on all of our past dogs for help in the matter: “Please help us find a good dog, preferably small, no shedding, and obedient. When the time is right, let us know.” Little did I know that soon after I put out the request we would find our dog!
I notice many people with a phone attached to their ear as they are walking down the street. Cell phone usage in stores, on mass transit, in cars, and many people who keep their blackberry on, even when they sleep, are all indicators that we are definitely losing the big picture. I often see the same woman walking for exercise, and every time she is talking on her phone. Children of all ages are sending text messages all day long and playing on the computer a good portion of the evening.
