Do You Believe in Magic…?

That damn song has been stuck in my head all day.  Following up on Finding Center and Book Club!  I’m almost done The Universe Has Your Back.  I am also doing the daily work of “Miracles May Happen” I actually am staying on Day 3, because it’s been very difficult for me, and it’s providing me a lot of insight and opportunities for healing and growth.

The very simple concept of both books is “replace fear with love” Love, for me, is a very difficult concept.  Love hurts is my core belief/wound.  In all relationships, etc. I inevitably manifest the love that hurts, because I struggle with loving myself.  This is very textbook and uninteresting. (Unless you are me, in which case it somewhat sucks to be me haha) Before I had gotten sick, I was undergoing the painful process of examining my cycles/patterns in terms of self harm, abusive relationships, etc.  It is my honest belief that my meditation connected me with these emotions, etc. and I wasn’t ready, frankly, to contend with it all.

Before I had gotten sick, though, I found myself in the flow.  My life had almost become like my stream of consciousness brain.  It was as if I was finding seemingly endless routes of inspiration, wisdom, etc. Synchronicity was happening a lot.  Like many, I was seeing a lot of 11:11, etc. or thinking of a person and seeing them, etc.  “Hippie shit” as I like to call it.  I’d think of a song, and it would play.  I also found all symptoms of mental health were manageable/improving.  Anxiety and depression were both very minimal.  I wasn’t manic, but I was happy.

downloadLet me pause and say, I’m by no means attempting to make you do anything “My way” or even think “my way”.  I am writing this like an excited child who wants to tell you about a great day at school, okay? 

I’ve always felt, logically, “look for the good, find the good”, but in reality, we’re all seemingly so trained to look for the bad. I read somewhere once, and it has stuck with me every day of my life since:

“When someone says I love you, you ask why, but when someone says I hate you or anything negative, you ask no questions. This is why people cannot be happy.”

Last week, I had told myself the self talk was going to change and I was going to get myself out of this hole.  A few days later, my friend told me to get these books.  Since reading these books, I feel as though I have found the flow again.  My sign for the universe that I had picked was a hawk.  It was the first thing that came to mind, and I have been seeing them constantly as it was.  I had been thinking of them as signs for awhile now, because they mean perception and clarity, which is what I’ve been seeking.  Maybe I’ll go on about that another time.

images (18).jpgBefore getting to that part of the book, I was sitting in the grass reading, and I looked up to see Jack changing his oil with the boys.  Seeing my boys grinning happily as they helped their dad made me grin.  It was a moment that I instructed myself to take that mental picture.  Record it all and remember every second you can, because it is one you will come back to when the days are dark.  My youngest’s squinched up face grinning as he’s asking Daddy questions, my oldest’s serious tone, with all the sage knowledge of a 10 year old and years of mechanical experience telling his brother what to do, and Jack instructing them and laughing.  As I drank this moment, a massive hawk flew overhead – right over the gang.  His wings were spread and he hovered for a moment.  I felt my grin widen as I felt hugged by the sun.  I felt whole.

The next day, I did the morning exercise, and as I was leaving my parking lot, I looked left and saw a massive hawk overhead, and he followed me partially to Wawa. Yesterday, I went to go check out a crystal store (because I AM a hippie!) and I saw 3 hawks overhead as I drove.  Why all the hawks? Well, I had requested in my meditation/intention, for the universe to treat me like a child and hold me.  Reassure me frequently, so that my confidence will grow, so that I can get back to where I was.

In addition, I’ve been seeing the times like crazy – 11:11, 10:10, and 4:44.  My purchase today was $11.11.  It’s silly stuff like that; it could mean absolutely nothing, but it does make me smile, and that alone is priceless.

New crystals woot!

While in the car with my friend to go to the crystal shop, I opened up about where I am struggling.  I know for a fact that I am blocked – energetically if you look into chakras, emotionally, and mentally.  I know, physically, there is nothing really wrong with me (apparently anemia…), but I know mentally I am not where I want to be.  I said that I believe the blocks are that I cannot handle my broken heart.  I believe I have put my head down, pushed through, etc. so much that my very being has put me in time out until I clean house, so to speak.  I think my meditation, etc. will not proceed unless I stop detaching/denying my emotions.  I believe this all started when I got sick, and that, in a sense, it was a good thing, because all the dark came to the light.  Jung talks of embracing your shadow self, to transform.  (Forty Six & 2 by TOOL does too!!)

 

I think that’s where I am.  My shadow and energetic body are seeking transformation.  In non hippie t

erms, my soul is constipated and I need to poop really badly.  After we got home, I checked my email, and “coincidentally” there was a message about healing the heart chakra – received at the same time I was talking about it.  I set intention to work on this area, and found this amazing channel on youtube that does frequency music for healing/relaxation/meditation/etc.  I found one for heart chakra, and as I closed my eyes, I could physically feel the pain in my chest.  So much pressure.  I kept breathing in to it, and I swear, I felt like my heart was giving birth or something.  I imagine what a gallstone could feel like passing.  Painful, almost burning, not fun.  It lasted a bit, and subsided.  Then I felt anger.  Intense anger as memories of past loves hurting me.  Then I felt peace and calmness.

Today, I did yoga for the first time in 3 months.  I’ve had the music on all day, to be honest, and my energy and smile are fabulous.  I have tons of ideas flowing, and I had an amazing meditation too.

I’m not writing this to brag like oh look at me, just “oh my gosh this is so cool” I have not felt this radiating calmness and security in so long.  The “hippie shit” makes me SO happy.

Namaste!!! (AHHH haven’t felt right saying it for so long!!!)

      1. Ah love, forgive yourself for any kind of mentality you’ve been in. It passes, like everything does. It’s more important to be gentle with yourself. Often, we are our own worst enemy. Suffering, as you have, gives you Wisdom, and lifts you to ever higher states of Consciousness. Practice gratitude, even if you don’t feel grateful. Just keep saying ‘thank you ‘. To what you don’t know, neither does it matter. What this does, is make it impossible for you to feel sad. Also, with gratitude, even if, at the moment you don’t feel it, the Universe starts moving in your life, with unbelievable joy that will happen upon you. Big love. ❤️🌹🌺

      2. ❤ I couldn't agree with you more. This week, I'm adding to last week's focus – I was focusing on fear and replacing it with love, being open to and accepting my emotions and moods, and trying to label but not attach to everything. If I'm feeling anxious, why, what is the root? It's helped so much. THis week, I want to add gratitude because when I was focusing there, life was transforming. I did Kundalini meditations and yoga today, and ohhhhhhhh man I feel like I new woman! All day, with anxiety, and just mood shifts, I've said gently "Sat Nam" and it's helped so much!!!! ❤ Love and light!

  1. This is good 🙂 One of the commenters said just keep saying “thank you”. I agree with this, like a mantra, until it is running repeat, like a song you can’t get out of your head. I believe it truly helps me not be a panic stricken mess. Of course you know me I add God to my thank you, but it is not the requirement. I feel just giving the thanks redirects or retrains our thought process. Chakra is so important. We are made up of energy and if it gets blocked, well things back up. Like plumbing gets backed up and that’s never a good thing 🙂 The music tones are helpful too. Music vibrations, whether its chimes, bowl, gongs, or songs, create a vibration that helps our energy flow. I equate it to when you shake a sheet to get all the wrinkles out. 🙂 I feel the vibrations do the same for our chakra.

    1. Agreed!!! This week I’m focusing a lot on both forgiveness and gratitude. Yesterday, as I was actually weeding my garden hahaha, I was squatting down in yogi squats and thinking “thank you for this sun, thank you for the breeze, thank you for my feet, hands, legs…” every thank you, I felt an energy shift and then I looked up and saw three beautiful
      Hawks soaring overhead. I say Mother, because I’ve really connected with the Divine Feminine, but to me, God/the universe/all divine is just incredible. I realize now what a teacher we have – gentle and quiet, guiding us always, even if we don’t want to listen.

      I did a meditation at a group yesterday, the we chanted shakti (divine feminine creator) I tell you, my chakras were on fire!!!! I was in a ball of white hot energy.

      As I drove home, I felt like my soul clicked back in place. I was sobbing and laughing saying “I’m back! I’m back! Thank you God I’m back!” ❤️❤️❤️❤️
