Dance with gratitude…with fear…with pain

Gratitude loves dancing with Beauty
They dance with ease and grace,
Perfect dance partners.
Why not let gratitude dance with anger, with fear,
With resentment and pain?
“Cause when you do you find yourself dancing
Right into Heaven’s sweet embrace.

It’s easy to love beauty and it’s easy to feel gratitude for things that are beautiful.  But unwanted situations bring us feelings of pain and suffering and we don’t love those negative feelings or situations very much, do we?  But why?  What’s the benefit of resisting, avoiding, wallowing in analyzing?  Have any of these things ever worked?  No!  All these approaches just keep these things hanging around, and if they do seem to disappear well guess what?  a while later they return again.  So if we know they don’t work then why stay stuck in something that doesn’t bring us what we want?

Maybe all negative responses are simply habit, simply something we’ve been trained to do down through the generations without ever questioning why. some glitch in the human condition.

So why not try loving all unwanted situations and being grateful for them because maybe they’re the only way to get to the Peace that waits on the other side?  Why not set yourself free and help set the world free?

Pinch of Spice…Yes this week every time you notice a negative reaction, any negative emotion, ask yourself, “Why?  Is this emotion serving me?”  Then be willing to let it go and love the situation that you thought caused that emotion.  Feel gratitude for the situation and feel gratitude for the emotion.  Enjoy that feeling when you let go.  Enjoy letting gratitude dance with all your emotions.

elephant whisperer…we are one

We are one…

If we ever doubt that all of life is connected here is a great true story that will make you cry and will fill you with hope at the possibility of life when all human beings know their interconnectedness.  Reading stories like this makes me want to double my efforts in my meditations and letting go practices.  If this kind of connection between all beings is real, and if there really is a deeper intelligence that governs our lives and that we all have access to, then why are we not living it??

“Author and legendary conservationist Lawrence Anthony died March 2. His family tells of a solemn procession of Elephants visiting his home just after his death, that defies human explanation.

For 12 hours, two herds of wild South African elephants slowly made their way through the Zululand bush until they reached the house of late author Lawrence Anthony, the conservationist who saved their lives. The formerly violent, rogue elephants, destined to be shot a few years ago as pests, were rescued and rehabilitated by Anthony, who had grown up in the bush and was known as the “Elephant Whisperer.” ”

The website below has the same story but more details.

give peace a chance…

All we are saying …Is give peace a chance
All we are saying …Is give peace a chance

WOW!!! Amazing video clip.  All week since starting Ringo Starr’s noon peace and love moment, I’ve been singing this song.  Then I happened upon this video and couldn’t help but share it here.

Make peace your number 1 priority.  If I asked you most of you would say that Yes, peace is definitely one of the most important things in your life.  But does your life show it?  How much time do we spend on not peace compared to how much time we spend on peace.  Take a few minutes now to look at your day and just note how much of your day was spent in busyness, rushing, and doing things that do not promote peace.  Now take note of how much time you spent in peace or promoting peace.  If peace is so important in your life why are you not taking time for it?

In the midst of your most pressing busyness, when time is crowding in on you,  when you’re beginning to feel a sense of panic that you won’t meet your deadlines…just STOP.  Take 10 minutes to just do nothing.  To keep your mind from rushing back to solve your problems focus on your breathing or read a favorite prayer or meditation to help you let go.  Just let yourself rest in nothingness.  What does this do?  It accesses your subconscious mind, your connection with Oneness, your God-self.  It’s a message to the Universe that peace is number one to you…that you are now, at least for this moment willing to give peace a chance.  Then watch how the whole Universe rushes in to help you in all you do and life becomes easy so you can live in even greater peace.

Try it now.  STOP now and at least once every day and give peace a chance.  When you do this it says, “I trust in the power of peace because even though I have all this other important stuff that needs to be done I am giving 10 minutes to peace.” Soon you will want to spend more and more time in peace as peace rewards you.

All we are saying…Is give peace a chance.

Namaste!!!  I bow to the Peace seeker in all of you.

..morning prayer/meditation

…this is my daily prayer, my daily meditation….

Today is the first day of the rest of my life.
I let go of the past…all thoughts of doubt, limitation, fear, unworthiness, etc.  They are the fog of mind that lift in the light of the present moment.

Today I call upon all my guardians, guides, angelic realms, ascended masters, unseen helpers to fill me up with Divine Love, Peace, Joy and confidence and to guide me in living my purpose.  I feel the Truth of Divine wisdom and guidance flowing through every cell of my body.

Everything I want comes to me with ease.  As I let go of past I step out into the beauty and adventure of this moment.  I live today in perfection, abundance and ease.  I know I am loved beyond measure.

Pinch of Spice:  Every morning this week spend 10-20 minutes reading this prayer, one sentence, one phrase at a time and allow the energy of it’s truth to flow into your being and fill you up so you can call upon this energy throughout the day.

Pay attention
to life…
to breathing…
Only now….
Always now.

Deeply….. slowly in.
Breathe in life.
Feel it …

Breathing life in
Noticing life now…
Only now…
Always now.

PINCH OF SPICE:  Take at least 20 minutes each day to breathe.  Sitting in an open comfortable position, begin to just notice your breathing.  Put all of your attention on breathing till nothing else exists….till there is nothing else in your awareness, all feelings, thoughts, sensations have all gone… there is no-one there and there is no doing there… all there is is breathing… in and out.  And you fall deeper and deeper into pure beauty…the joy of being alive.  This is meditation.

Clouds come floating into my life,

no longer to carry rain or usher storm,

but to add color to my sunset sky.

—Rabindranath Tagore

Spice for the week:  … Never take a sunset for granted.  Find the best sunset spot in your area and Watch the sunset… every day… Notice and absorb the wonder and stillness of the moment …and notice how clouds add beauty and color to the sky.


Loss Creates Space for Better


view from my back door


from my living room window

This morning I awoke with a hollow hurting kind of feeling in my heart…like the ending of a long relationship.  I couldn’t think of anything I’d lost…just…the houseboat?? Hahahaha.  Yes that must be it!  I’d even dreamed about the new owners driving it while I wandered the marina alone.

On Friday my sister had called to say they’re coming down tomorrow to pay for and sign the final papers for the boat.  Oh No!! This was really the end.  How sad!! “Don’t look at it as an ending,”  she said.  “Think of it as making space for something better to show up.”

Yes!  Of course!  How often do we choose to wallow in what’s over and wasn’t even real instead of being in the beauty of the reality of here and now.  Right now I choose to feel gratitude for all the beautiful times we had and let go of all the issues and problems and let go of the feeling of loss.  If something better shows up in my physical world that’s great but if not that’s great too because my heart is full… and that’s all I really want.

Pinch of Spice:  This week spend 15 minutes every day reviewing past losses that you haven’t let go of.  Allow feelings of loss to just pass through you knowing that once you let go then you are making space for something better to show up.  Find something to be grateful for about it and allow feelings of gratitude to fill your heart.  Then together we will fill the Earth with waves and waves of gratitude   and love for all of life.

I Want to Dance With You


Come follow me.  Come and dance with me.
I’ll take you to places you’ve never been before.
I’ll take you to the highest mountaintop
And together we’ll leap
Into forever….

I’ll show you how to love life
Like you’ve never loved before.
I’ll show you how to love God
like you’ve never known love.
And maybe even we’ll get to see God
And look into his eyes.
