Spiritual Awakening: The Recent Universal Upgrade. (AKA-The Shove)

“Everything that seemingly happens externally is occurring in order to trigger something within us, to expand us and take us back to who we truly are.” ― Anita Moorjani

It was a Wednesday night about two weeks ago when I was awakened in the early morning hours to the winds of a fading Tropical Storm Bill. I have heard those types of winds before. They are Winds of Change and they usually carry a certain energy about them. I actually got out of bed and stood outside listening and I felt that the changes those winds were bringing would be good ones. I felt as if something had shifted. As a matter of face, I know something had occurred, because when I went back to bed my body was treated to a little “inner fire” massage. I was wide awake when it started, which is rare! It was quite yummy! That Kundalini surge fired up because the universal energy had created a shift upwards in my energy. It was that powerful.
Now I thought that I was the only one that sensed this shift or maybe I shoul…

Spiritual Awareness: Animals: The Other Soul Mate.

“When I look into the eyes of an animal I do not see an animal.
I see a living being. I see a friend. I feel a soul.”  -Anthony Douglas Williams
I have wanted to write about my affection and affinity for our fellow animal species for a long time, ever since Debbie first asked me to write about my personal passion for Vivadivine. At first, I was excited and willing to do it until I literally stopped myself in my tracks. Why did I stop myself from writing about this affection that I’ve had since I could remember? I truly didn’t know or understand why I couldn’t get myself to write down what was true in my heart. Why was I having such a hard time articulating these thoughts and feelings I have regarding animals?
For the longest time I didn’t have an answer so I just didn’t write about it. Now, I have come to the conclusion that one reason is because the subject of animals is one that deserves more than just one blog entry from someone who has had these feelings since she was born. Wha…

Positivity: Wait For It. Don’t Settle

“It is better to stay single and wait for the one that makes sense then to marry someone that makes absolutely no sense. The moment you settle is when the one person that makes all the sense in the world shows up and Satan sits back and enjoys your spiritual meltdown.” ― Shannon L. Alder

You would be surprised at what people are willing to settle for.

Having been in an abusive situation, I know all the signs of a person who has no desire to make the adjustments needed to put a relationship on a better path. No matter how many opportunities the person is given, no matter how many promises are made, the behavior does not change. In these cases the change needs to be made, not for the sake of the relationship, but within the person who is causing the disturbance. It is they who must get better for themselves.

It takes great courage to walk away from a relationship where you can see promise. But in the case where there is questionable behavior or attitudes, there is no guarantee that you w…

Spiritual Awakening: You Asked For This!

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”  -Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Long before you arrived at this place where you are noticing things you never have before, long before you started to feel better about life, you asked for something. No, it was not the major wake up call you received that day that made you stop and pay attention. This little unknown event occurred probably unbeknownst to you. You did not realize that you were asking for help, through that groaning deep within your soul that was unsaid.

Perhaps it was a long winded sigh over something that in a clear moment you wished you did not have to deal with. Perhaps your heart experienced one more tiny fracture from anothe…

Spiritual Awareness: Just Trust.

“None of us knows what might happen even the next minute, yet still we go forward. Because we trust. Because we have Faith.” ― Paulo Coelho

I am a big believer that things happen for a reason. I have come to understand that when some things do not pan out the way we wish they had, it is because something better is on its way. When you are living on Purpose, you will see this happen even more so.

Where I am currently working is a perfect example of something that happened for a reason. This is by far one the best working environments that I could ever ask for, outside of my Aviation Family at the airline where I worked many years ago. I am working with very smart, confident women, led by an efficient Human Resources Director and I am 100% doing something I love. I specifically asked for this experience and it showed up right on time. I sat back and watched it effortlessly come my way.

But there is one major facet of this opportunity that tells me unequivocally that I am in the righ…

Spiritual Awareness: Being Aware of the Unaware.

“Empaths did not come into this world to be victims, we came to be warriors. Be brave. Stay strong. We need all hands on deck.”
 ― Anthon St. Maarten
I came across the great article on the Huffington Post that I shared on Vivadivine Facebook today. It was titled: How Highly Sensitive People Interact With The WorldDifferently. If you read the article you will probably see a top comment made by a reader who articulately summed up the life of a HSP. He said:
“I feel the need to chime in here, being diagnosed with sensitivity problems. People should be aware that to a sensitive person you are entirely transparent. We will pick up on things you aren't aware of and discover your motives long before you are ready to reveal them. We know when you are lying. We know when you are being patronizing. We know when you intend to rip us off. We know when your politics mask an underlying self-worship and hatred of others. We detect condescension immediately.
Most of us avoid conflict and retreat,…

Spiritual Awareness (Religion): The Post With No Name.

“Belief is the wound that knowledge heals.”  ― Ursula K. Le GuinThe Telling
Well, I had a totally different and well thought out post for today. But that was until I went to The Fountain Of Praise church yesterday to support my girlfriend who has met with breast cancer while on her journey. She is a lover and a fighter and beating her test every day. She amazes me. I am so grateful that she invited me. It was a big step for me to go a place of worship outside of what I grew up experiencing. As I write this, I am sure there are some friends and family of my former belief system who may be having a conniption right about now. In my favorite Katy Perry voice: “I went to a church and I liked it! I am going to tell you why.
I liked it because I finally got a chance to see a form of praise and worship that I have longed to experience. I did not grow up listening to a full choir leading the congregation in praise. This united voice of sound brought me to tears.  I have heard men in my old c…

Spiritual Awareness: Heal the World Part 2: Kids Are The New Wave.

“A baby is God's opinion that the world should go on.”
Carl Sandburg
We all know about the innocence of children and how precious that can be. But let’s stretch our minds a bit and consider that beyond a child’s innocence there is a brand new pristine consciousness that they possess. I marvel at the possibility of healthy babies being born with a clear conscious spirit, uncontaminated. When I hold a newborn, I cannot help but think this spirit, this little being, is a pure clean slate of a human being. Babies and young children have a special place in my heart.
Babies cannot speak. They can only communicate by crying, thus informing us of what they are feeling or sensing that makes them uncomfortable. They can read our faces and respond with laughter. They can also feel our energy. Most babies when I first hold them get fidgety and that is because I know they can feel the vibration in my body. I know I can feel it, so I am sure I feel drastically different from Mommy. I was holdin…
