Something Special

One of the nicest things to do for yourself is make or buy something that is special to you. You don’t have to spend a lot of money. The objective is not to just purchase or make something nice for yourself; it is to do something that makes you feel at peace with yourself and calm in general. We take so much for granted sometimes in our everyday life that we forget to pay attention to things that really matter in our lives.

By being more aware of what brings you peace and calmness. You will attract more of that type of energy into your life and reduce the stress in it. You will be focussing on what you would like to be part of your life. Your life is more filled with beautiful moments because they are more conscious moments in your life. These small and simple changes can bring in some really wonderful changes.

You start to see more money in your life from a new job. Maybe you find a house that fits your personality better. By bringing more beauty into your life. You start to see more beautiful moments in your life with the  you spend your time with.

Buying yourself flowers that you find visually pleasing or a perfume that makes you feel special that is worn for special occasions. It can be a really nice bottle of wine or music that you’ve wanted to get.  It can be as big or small just so it makes you feel calm and peaceful when you use, taste or listen to it.

By being more at peace and calm we attract things to us more easily than we can when we’re stressed out and unfocused. This is why we sometimes see a person suddenly get all these wonderful or not so wonderful changes that seem to cascade in people’s lives sometimes. That doesn’t mean that people don’t sometimes have moments where their world seems to be out of control. It means that they might be ready for new changes and things are making way for the new by exiting the old.

Here is my sense of humor coming out.  When new transplants come to our state we should give them a “Welcome Package” in side will be a list.

On the list will be helpful suggestion that say if you’re a woman. You might rethink shaving your legs after all you will need the added warmth to keep your legs warm. Panty hose and long johns are necessities that you will need. Dresses and skirts in the winter are strongly frowned on. After all the objective is to stay warm and not end up like a popsicle. Hearty meals are encouraged, after all it’s all about staying warm. Chili, soup and stews are all part of the fare for this state if you want to survive.

For men, you don’t get points for turning blue. Thermal wear is an accessory to not be without. Car gear for emergencies. A sleeping bag that is rated for below zero weather and a winter survival kit. Oh and when the weather guy or gal says that it will be getting to 19 above and that there is a severe weather watch. This is not a suggestion to keep off the roads. As one of our new transplants found out when the buses stopped running and almost ended up stranded.

We do want people to survive our winters and not end up going to their a funerals.

Talking Back

Over the years, I’ve found it very funny how many people don’t realize that they’ve gone into voice mail. They start to talk about things that they don’t want others to know about. It’s like they’re at the confessional! The recorded conversations are not small by any means either. Some of these conversations have been over 30 minutes on a voice mail.

Technology has taken the place of children. Parents used to watch what they said in front of children so that it wouldn’t be repeated and come back to haunt them later on. The voice mail and cell phones have gotten more people into trouble with their friends or family. Those rants that are only meant for our own ears in moments of frustration are becoming more public when your least paying attention.

I recently had a long-standing question answered for me. A relative that is always complaining about their lack of good relationships. Recently had a rant come back to bite them in the butt. They weren’t at their best, they were very frustrated. What they said out loud was pretty bad. They didn’t know that the person heard them say those hurtful things. They apologized but not before the damage had been done.

Since, I had experienced this person talking about me behind my back. I had confronted them at the time which was pretty easy since I had over 30 minutes on my voice mail. I found it funny, since I know it’s very hard for this person to eat crow. I’m not in any way condoning the behavior but it explained the lack of true friends and family connections.

So before going on a rant, you might want to make sure technology is off before continuing. Have a happy day : )

Beautiful Moments

Because of the work I do, I am constantly seeing moments that take my breath away. I usually will get a scent and then the person connected to that deceased loved one will make contact with me. Recently, I smelled the scent of cinnamon and didn’t know who it belonged to but knew the answer would come as it often does. I was to get the answer from a person that I do business with.

We were talking about different things and it came up that her aunt had recently passed. I asked her if she used to smell of cinnamon. She replied yes, and told me about the most unusual funeral for her aunt. The funeral was celebrated for three days. She said that her aunt had always had a different belief system than the rest of the family. She said that when she attended this funeral. She felt such a feeling of peace. It felt happy and joyful. It didn’t feel sad. We talked about this and I told her I understood her aunt. She said that it felt like faery energy all around the event. I told her that wasn’t uncommon. I told her that it was beautiful that she got to share experience at her aunts funeral.

I think it was her aunts attempt to share with her family that death can be a joyful process; not something to be feared. Every time I’ve had deceased loved ones contact me; it is a very peaceful feeling. There is none of the drama that people tend to have when they’re alive. The guardian angels that wait patiently for their charges to finally decide to cross over to the other side is always touching. I’m always crying when they cross since it is incredibly beautiful and filled with so much love.

Earlier last summer, I was scheduled to do a party and it turned into so much more than that. The mother of the hostess had not crossed so she decided to finally do it at the party. I saw her guardian angel’s wings and watched as she took the angels hand and went into the tunnel of light to cross over. It was very touching. These are the moments that I’m blessed in sharing and they are moments that are very tender.
