I was thinking about my Papa and my dad, men not from the same family,
what they might say about social media such as facebook, twitter,
instagram and the like. Papa and my dad I think would say, "Good if it
informs you and/or entertains you however for every minute you spend on
it spend 3 minutes reading. My dad would add read something that informs
you or you are passionate about. My dad always read what he was
passionate about, hunting or guns.
I will start putting my three to five minutes for every minute I waist,
sorta, on social media. My choice is to read what I am passionate about
and what fills me with joy. Sometimes reading to just check out of this
world and into another for a bit fills me with joy. Almost as much as
reading more about what I am passionate about, CranioSacral Therapy and
how I can continue to grow as a practitioner. This is so I can continue
to help other more and more! Thank you Papa and Dad for coming into my
thought and reminding me of what an import use of my time is. Namaste

I was at a Reiki Master circle not to long ago and was, profoundly, reminded of something I have heard many times as well as have shared with people.
It was a very busy day for me and making it to the circle was a just in time happening. I like getting to these things early so I can take a moment to decompress from the day before it starts, however not today.
We had a twenty to thirty minute discussion before getting on the tables to share Reiki with each other. My epiphany happened when I put my hands on the person I was sharing Reiki with. She was on the table first and I was the practitioner.
All of a sudden I arrived in the room with a personal bang, in my body and mind. The rooms sounds, soft as they were, came alive as well as the energy in the place. Other Reiki masters were getting into their respective places, either on the tables or around the tables to share Reiki.
Being in the moment all of a sudden, everything just flooded in with such intensity. Sound, smell, feelings, touch, and energy of the place as well as my own. That I was so humbled by it and reminded of my place in all of the universe. The Gift once again was shared with me in its fullest affect.
What is this gift you ask and how can it be so impactful? The gift is being in the moment and experiencing everything it has to offer and appreciating it for what it is. Being truly in the here and now and observing it with all of my senses brought me to tears of joy as well as filled me with gratitude of just being.
There is a reason it is a gift and it is called what it is. It is being in this very moment being "PRESENT"!~ Read Full Article ~
We as a society have been taught to find peace and respect outside of ourselves. The truth is we can only find peace and self respect within ourselves. When we look within with open eyes and true unconditional love for self, then, and only then can we find what we are looking for. Enjoy your journey and be kind to yourself.

If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful, or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have. Complaining about money, arguing about money, getting frustrated about money, being critical of the cost of something, or making someone else feel bad about money are not acts of gratitude, and the money in your life can never improve; it will worsen.
"The greatest wealth is health."

Health is the most precious thing in life, and yet more than anything else, we can take our health for granted. For many of us, the only time we think of our health is when we lose it. Then the realization hits us: without our health, we have nothing.
Imagine if you were the only person on Earth; you would have no desire to do anything. What would be the point in creating a painting if no one could see it? What would be the point in composing music if no one could hear it? What would be the point in inventing anything if there was no one to use it? There would be no reason to move from one place to another because wherever you went would be the same as where you were - no one would be there. There would be no pleasure or joy in your life.~ Read Full Article ~
"Reflect upon your present blessings of which every man has plenty; not on your past misfortunes of which all men have some."

From the book, The Magic
"When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around."
Willie Nelson (b. 1933)
You will have heard people say to count your blessings, and when you think about the things you're grateful for, that's exactly what you're doing. But what you may not have realized is that counting your blessings is one of the most powerful practices you can ever do, and it will magically turn your whole life around!
When you're grateful for the things you have, no matter how small they may be, you will see those things instantly increase. If you're grateful for the money you have, however little, you will see your money magically grow. If you're grateful for a relationship, even if it's not perfect, you will see it miraculously get even better. If you're grateful for the job that you have, even if it's not your dream job, things will begin to change so that you enjoy your job more, and all kinds of opportunities for your work will suddenly appear.~ Read Full Article ~
