Through suffering comes change. Through darkness, light. Through compassion and love, a more compassionate and loving world.
Several years ago when my husband was very ill, I was in the midst of my own sort of illness. It had started many years before after my near death experience I had during labor with my daughter. I’d spent the years since then wrapped up in this internal struggle where I was afraid of being the love I learned I was in the afterlife, yet knew I had to be that person in order to live the Iife I came here to live. I was miserable.
For 8 months we didn’t know what was wrong with my husband, and I spent that time caring for him and our daughter while also working on my self. I knew that I needed to figure out a way to be happy, to live in better alignment with who I was and therefore be able to be there more fully and completely for my family.
During that process, that 8 months of uncertainty, I’d never felt more alive in my life. The inner work I was doing helped me be present and fearless and accepting and confident in knowing that no matter what, everything was going to be just fine. I was the rock my family stood upon when they had nothing to hold them up. I created that rock, and I wasn’t alone in that creation.
I took what I learned in the afterlife and applied it to my life here. I began living my life differently, every moment of every day I focused on positive change and began to experience those changes not only within myself, but in my husband and daughter as well.
The Twelve Principles For Daily Living were the things I practiced. They were the conduits for healing in my life and the lives of my husband and daughter. I present them in my book, I Died And Learned How To LIve, and am working on a book that is just about the Twelve Principles.
There are no words that can adequately express the gratitude I have for the experience of going through 8 months of, what could have been, emotional torture. I was given that opportunity so I could get real and get serious about figuring out how to live my life better, how to practice being the person I knew I was but didn’t know how to be.
Today, I practice an attitude of gratitude. There is so much to be grateful for.
The feedback I’m getting on my book is amazing and I am so grateful for all the kind words 🙂 If you’ve read I Died And Learned How To Live and are inspired to do so, send me an email at http://email@example.com or post a comment here telling me what you think of the book. If you like it, you can leave a “star” rating on Amazon….Love To You!
This was started on Facebook and I wanted to share it with my blog community…..post comments on 5 of your friend’s walls today…encouraging words, compliments, etc..spread love in your community and the world!
One of my favorite parts of the year are the changes of season, when the weather cools or begins to warm up and windows are thrown open letting fresh air in to replace the old. There’s something very cleansing about it, and of course, I find it meaningful! I find most everything meaningful 😉
It’s a time of transition. A time to reflect and take stock of where we are in our lives. For me, I find it is during these periods of natural transition that I take the greatest steps forward on my own spiritual journey.
Today, as I sit with my windows open enjoying the cool air, I’m grateful for the awareness I have of the love that surrounds me and my ability to tap into it so as to feel the joy of simply being.
Have a beautiful day xox
My job is in medicine and I meet a lot of people every day. I love everyone. Everyone is deserving of my love, especially those who seem to suffer more than others, like the homeless alcoholic who I later learned had been a Obstetrition at one time, or the distraught young woman who cut her wrist after her boyfriend broke up with her. My words to her were simple, “You don’t have to live this way, and you know it.” I could feel her energy shift at that moment. I cared for a middle-aged obese woman with high blood pressure who obviously wasn’t taking care of herself. As I left the room, my words to her were “Do what you know you need to do for yourself. You’re worth it.” She and her husband’s jaws dropped at that, literally. I laughed a little, knowing she’d remember it and maybe get back in touch with the love she is.
I’m not bragging or blowing my own horn, I just believe we need to focus on and talk more about love. When we do, it carries that love energy outward, all around us. In the presence of love, there can’t be hate. No fear. Just Love.
Lots of Love to You!
I witness a lot of suffering in my daily life, not my own mind you, but that of others. I’ve come to the awareness that if I am to survive in this world, I must live in it objectively. Objective awareness. I love, but in a detached kind of way. I am unattached to ego when I am unattached.
I love, but I do not possess. I appreciate and observe and admire, but do not grab hold of and cling to anything.
These things make my life sweeter. What’s the icing on the cake? The love I receive in return, simply for loving in the first place. We are each a mirror for the other.
They amaze me. No really, in a good way.
I had two meaningful discussions with two different taxi cab drivers over the last two days. Yes, meaningful.
What precipitated these events? Love.
I consciously made the decision to approach every person I met over the last two days with love. That was the energy I carried. That was the energy they sensed and responded to.
Both of them opened up and asked me questions about why I was there. When I told them I’d written a book and was learning how to market it, the “what’s your book about” was the follow up. That’s when things got really interesting.
The driver who took me to the airport shared how he’d just had a baby boy after having two girls. In his culture, girls are not as valued as boys, but he fought against that mindset. “Observe the mother, and love the daughter” he quoted. I asked him where he heard it. “I’m not sure, I read it somewhere.” That quote changed his life, he said. He’d had a son nine months ago, “Now you can teach him.” He hadn’t considered it yet, he said, but yes, he absolutely would.
We got on the subject of energy. It’s all energy, he agreed. “Money is energy” I said. “It’s currency.” His face lit up. “Yes! That’s it! Energy is currency and we all share it!” Then he said “I don’t usually have these conversations with people. You just made my day.” That two minute exchange (it was a very short cab ride to the airport) made by day too. What a wonderful connection to make with a total stranger in a place so far from home.
We can all connect. All we have to do, is reach.
Love to YOU!
