God respects me when I work, but God loves me when I sing…Tagore

The Healer by South African artist Dina Cormic

Tagore once said: God respects me when I work, but God loves me when I sing. These words have been going around and around in my head as I try to make a living doing what I am passionate about and what bring healing to others.

I have found myself, this past month, losing myself in the “WORK”. Focusing on bringing in the money and losing my focus on what my purpose is in doing the work that I’m doing.

When reading this simple and profound quote, my first reaction was: “That can’t be right. Imagine if I just wasted my life singing and playing? This doesn’t pay the bills.” But, after sitting with it for a while, I think I got it. My own interpretation, I agree, but one that made sense to me in my current situation.

Yes, it is important to work as we all have to eat and pay the bills. But…when I sing, when I dance, when I remember the joy of living, then I am truly giving thanks to The Divine Presence/Creator/God for my existence.

Lots of love, light and harmony

Energy is information that moves…Five words trying to explain a very big concept…

plant auraI have been wrestling with how to get across my blog for today. The dictionary defines energy as: “The strength and vitality required for sustained physical or mental activity. (changes in the levels of vitamins can affect energy and well-being); or: A person’s physical and mental powers.” (an alternative is to devote your energies to voluntary work). But I have been wanting to explain that more spiritual energy without making it sound like I have lost the plot.

Then, along came Dr Jill Bolte Taylor, in her book “My Stroke of Insight” (1) and explains from the inside out that “We are composed of energy and energy fields, which interconnect us to all things.” (2). This book is well worth a read if you want to read more detail.

Dr Taylor, a brain scientist, had a stroke which affected the left side of her brain. In her book she shares her experience and her subsequent understanding that she gained during her 8 year recovery. Here is a 20 minute TED talk where she speaks of what it was like, what happened ad what it is like now. Very interesting and well worth watching.

With love, light and harmony

My life is balanced and in order and all is well

your-life-is-important-honour-it-fight-for-your-highest-possibilitiesNathaniel Branden, the author of “The Psychology of Self-Esteem” and “The Six Pillars of Self-Esteem” says that the core idea that he has always wanted to teach is: “Your life is important. Honour it. Fight for your highest possibilities.”

As I contemplated these words, a few thoughts came to me. Firstly: Who would I be fighting in order to gain my highest possibilities? The answer came crashing through the usual muddle of thoughts that I have:
Sue the first, and probably the only, person that you would fight is yourself.

These words hit me with such force as the negative-speak which often has priority in my head usually rules over my more positive thoughts.

Secondly: Yes, my life is important, as is every single being on this planet. We each have a vital role to play in the continued well-being of all. A question that came up here for me was: What is your role in this crazy life you have? Well, I live with this question now, asking myself almost daily: “What do you need to do today to live your best life?”

Finally, how do I honour my life? Well, for today, the answer that came through is to know that my life is balanced and in order and all is well. And just for today, that has been achieved through self-Reiki, cleaning my living and working space, eating as healthily and well as I know how at this moment in time, and…Reaching out to share with others.

In love, light and harmony
