Forever a Day

So im laying on my roofdeck’s gray sectional couch under the sunset with my ipod on shuffle and the song Forever and a Day by Hilary Stagg comes on.
Ive listened to this song thousands of times over the last 6 years and I realize, quietly, alone on the rooftop…
that I have been silently judging this song for years
The thoughts sound like
1. Oh, fast forward this you never get into it…
2. So there you are again..distracted and off thinking thoughts instead of loosing yourself into the music
3. Do you even like this song?

And as I lay there I realize this judgment and became curious about it…
What If I really listen to it instead?
my mind wondered.

So I did.

And I noticed 2 things: judgment

    even in the manipulative sly kind I do to myself everyday-
    ( like my selection of music is sub par at times) …has a Fe e l I n g to it..
    I only noticed this feeling because the second I relaxed into the song..
    I felt different.
    As soon as I gave up my judgment of it and instead decided to just beeee with the music, I noticed this tiny shift deep inside my chest area- of like a clicking …
    and my mind and body were in complete alignment
    This I could feel.
    and It feels GREAT..this place turns on a state of being that feels alive and joyful.
    I notice how often I am deciding to feel this way instead of allowing my unconscious judgment of self to decide how I feel.
    Instead I am choosing to just feel more deeply and with intention to feel more of this amazing body mind connection… and am grateful for being aware of this magic inside me.
    ok.
    So now im deep with the music and feeling great and notice i am smiling and thining about all of the amazing people I am connected to in my life-
    a social worker I haven’t seen in years and realize how much I miss her when I see her…a great friend from grade school that makes me laugh and feel so relaxed when im near her- and she’s’ super smart…and I get to have dinner with her and she is lovely..and new friends that im getting ready to experience relationships with- and all of the wonderful work I am getting to do lately with a surprising number of new and expected clients…

    and then I think about my beautiful family
    and remember telling my girlfriend at dinner two nights ago this one really funny memory I have of my brothers and I..
    It went like this:
    So me and my brothers used to create this murder/burglar scene to trick our parents when they were out to dinner and we were “watching ourselves”
    (that alone makes me laugh)
    I mean we would spend hours planning it out and talking about it and the three of us would gather in the kitchen and gather the perfect knives
    and topple the most perfect chair
    and very vey delicately take the lid off of the treasured antique ceramic bowel in the middle of the formal living room coffee table and place it on the floor in just the right place so no one would step on it..
    and then there was the high and almighty most important condiment in the universe-
    Ketchup.
    Heinz preferred….but really any old ketchup would do…
    we decided to place the ketchup on the knives at the last possible moment so as not to mess the floors up..
    So the house was all ready and now all we had left to do was WAIT.
    So we waited….
    With shit eating grins on our faces and an anticipation of the laughs to come.

    And when the real moment was about to take place and we could see our parents car headlights peer into the driveway,
    we quickly (while laughing)
    …made the knives look bloody and take our respective spots already discussed on the carpet and placed the bloody knives on our bodies in just the right place…

    And then Dottie and Tony walked in the door

    “oh Look hon, my mother would say..”the kids are dead again,”
    and then my father would laugh- but like a short little deep laugh from the back of his throat…
    ( I loved that laugh)
    So what did my brothers and I do?

    Oh we were working really hard at not breathing
    so maybe
    in one last ditch effort we could successfully get one of them to say…
    “wait a minute..i think something really is wrong here
    (Even if just for a second!)
    Schucks I would think to myself and then our parents would walk over us and we would all jump up screaming…….
    “Kidding!!! Gotcha !!! Wasn’t that real?? Didn’t that look great? We got you!~!! Admit it!!!
    ok-

    I was experiencing happiness and joy and realized the beauty of being able to spend hours playing.
    Hours playing.
    Hours.
    and thinking up fun things to do.
    and Hours creating and planning and designing FUN.
    WOW- what a blessed thing a child is.
    To have the unspoken expected rule to spend hours having fun.

    So back to the present time on the roof deck and now im laughing out loud on the roof still listening to that song and im thinking to myself–
    -wow we really spent hours planning that stuff out- it was so much fun..
    and then im thinking
    could you imagine if I did that now- like on Monday morning when my co-worker asks me how my Saturday was I could say
    well Susan thanks for asking! It was great!! I spent hours saturday thinking up and creating the most perfect burglar murder scene as a joke for when my friends came over later that night…
    ( you get the picture)
    and then I was laughing even more!!
    and at the same time im realizing that allowing myself to be with the music- that Hilary Swagg song.. Forever and a Day, nonetheless…
    that I really I chose to be in the moment
    with the music
    and with joy
    and with gratitude
    and with of course, that shit eating grin!
    There are many different ways of connecting to your special place of feeling alive and in joy…Music is one of them.
    what is yours?

That was Easy!

So this year I am determined to do things differently. So these are some of the limiting beliefs I have floated over as if they never existed:
Its too hard
It wont work
It’ll look stupid
I don’t have what I need
I don’t want to start from scratch.

Interesting enough I didn’t realize that I was paying much attention to any of that chatter until I decided to Just Do something’s I always wanted to do- and then I realized that
It was simple
It worked!
My creations look great!
I can get whatever I need easily
Starting is starting and its always from scratch I suppose otherwise they wouldn’t call it “starting!”

ok so these are the simple things that I decided to do

Get my own tools- a wrench a drill “bits” a ladder something that is long and sharp and cuts down big branches ( don’t know the name)
Unbuild then Rebuild a farmers table (Done today!!!!) Then lifted it upright all by my little self:)

soooo- that doesn’t seem so remarkable except your talking to a gal that has never even hung curtains on her own! And it was the first time my pretty little fingers operated a drill all by myself….
I am parting my hair on the other side…hmmmm…this may seem simple but after parting it on the other side for 15 + yrs…( oh wait there I go again, getting ready to describe how hard it should have been!)
It looks great!
Ive been walking from one end of the city to the other while my little Audi gets some “work done” on it and discovering lots of little shops- great dresses and the perfect solution to enhance my home’s curbside appeal- I walked into a florist boutique shop around the corner from my house yesterday looking for Old English Ivy- and the owner just so happened to have some in the back of his truck! The owner of a hardware store offered me his own tools at home that he didn’t have at the shop and complete strangers were helping me figure out what I needed for the job I wanted to do!

So what is my point?

That your state of being matters. An attitude of being in the flow of life is all one needs and the best part of being in the flow is that it is moment by moment.

Ive been experimenting with all of the “chores” I have to do…and ive been doing these chores from a source energy of flow not get this done get that done- and as a side effect – it all feels great- all of it

My new current state of being is relaxing into the ease of anything- being patient for all of the moments that hold something for me- and every moment does.

Instead of fighting a “to do list” im walking in the being of how amazing my body moves, how I can see angles using tools from a new perspective that were not available to me in the “hard ” perspective, Im walking in the being of everything is in flux all of the time- nothing is permanent- so why should my thoughts beliefs or attitudes be permanent….im tweaking what I have been living for the last decade and am in awe of what a difference it all makes.

If your interested in learning how to be with source energy in a way that feels so good- come join me in another remarkable “starting project” that started out with just wanting to share information with such passion- I forgot I was “starting from scratch” and instead operated in the flow of what my being wanted- its happening with ease and love and is so much fun.

We meet 2 x a wk- information in other blogs on this site or on my facebook page

Lovingly,

Lauraoffice

the magic that is us

body speaks and feels and teaches

guides us through every experience and emotion with no judgment

I feel  love enter me and I am engulfed with desire and grateful for the knowing of blessing this act is showing me

we are capable of making life both inside and outside of ourselves-

we grow love from the tiny generations of cells and dna and from the gigantic space of what is not seen to our naked eye yet exists and rules our universe

my own beating heart  I hear to remind me of all of my power, slow with intention and fast with anticipation, full of life energy expressing itself through this piece of me

delivering information to every aspect of my being- literally

the tiny area in my throat giving way to sounds and words that are of meaning to those who hear it, releasing chemicals to my body to align itself with the master of my mind

intuition that feeds me silent knowing and then lets me decide what to do with it

visions of blue and green surround this space connecting to my spirit saying yes

its when the noise stops I hear the most precious messages of white light

space that almost scares me and brings me back unwillingly as I am still a student

wondering what it will be like when I feel safe deep inside my no-thing ness

new data downloads to the center of my field taking me deeper into a state of love

“up up and away”

http://dumpest.com/world-down-syndrome-day/

 

I was  24 years old working on a heart floor in a major center city hospital.

he was 23- a heart patient… Again.

His heart was failing.

He had the best smile ever- the kind that makes you smile the nanosecond his energy intermingles with yours. He was always happy- not oblivious to what was going on, but instead just choose to only see the good in everything all the time- its like its his default setting…to only see the good.

One day I enter his room to give him something he needed and as I walk into the room he flashes me one of those smiles and starts to laugh and giggle while he slips me a little folded up piece of white paper.

“whats this?’  I say

“just read it- not here- out there ” he says trying to hide his bashfulness.

“ok I will right now” and I leave the room.

As I open the wrinkled piece of paper I see

” I love you nurse Laura”

I smile and know that he does – he doesn’t know how not to- like he loves everyone and everything and every circumstance all the time- people with “down syndrome”: are not missing anything-they have something us without this”syndrome” don’t- the uncanny ability to only be love- there is no angst or worry or doubt they play with. They teach love all the time in all things in all experiences in all thoughts , in all feelings,  in all ways, always. They are our teachers and I thank God for each and every one of them- their “disease” ( cant back up thatlabel at all) should be called

“up syndrome” Minus the syndrome. Wow – the impact he had on me- thank you.

just saying….

nursing, with purpose

She greets me with the kindest smile, the kind that reaches her eyes, she is almost 80- and so beautiful. I am there to provide proficient wound care, and to heal her abscess.

Her dogs name is Happy…

The wound care is slightly uncomfortable as I have to push the packing in..i check on her repeatedly during the process, being as gentle as possible.

The next time I see her, I am greeted with the same love and kindness and we go upstairs to complete the visit. She says, ” I didn’t sleep at all last night.” Her son Is struggling with an aspect of his life and she feels so much for him, she is praying for him all night.

So we talk. About love and loss, God and faith, supporting our children from a distance, knowing it is their lesson to learn not ours…remembering our own hard lessons and how they shaped us into who we are today- and how we would never ever give those “lessons” up as we see their value for us now.

I do wish one thing were more evident for most people though- that everything is always ok- that even when events happen to us or to our loved ones, and even though it appears difficult, feels bad, looks hard, tastes yucky, smells foul etc….it is what we want it to be. We just don’t know the whole story line yet..Like we are in a play and have a major role but didn’t read the whole script

If we want it to be different- it can be…if only for a moment- or for longer.

Her speaking to me set her mind free of worry- she feel into gratitude for all that her son has and who he is being within  this chapter of his one of his stories. She remembered that her version of “god” is there to love and support her and her loved ones..and that worry served her no purpose- just took her out of who she naturally really is-

a child of a greater consciousness playing mother to a man she loves so very much.

A Habit of Love

You know how you feel head over heels when your in love?

Did you know that that feeling comes from you and not from your partner? Your partner is part of the picture- of course and they get to benefit from your love that you are putting out in your energy field however You can conjure up that feeling whenever you want- you can re create that feeling when you notice you may be falling out of love with your partner-or perhaps already out of love.
Learning to create this feeling or “love of life” is a conscious feeling you can generate that releases all of the good hormones from your brain that tell your body that it is in love that tells your brain that your feeling great – your body and mind are Love looped so to speak- so your brain releases more of those feel good hormones and your body says YES and so on and so on….Once you are aware that the power to feel “head over heels” anytime you want- you fall in love with everything and everyone around you- and every day gets to be Valentine’s Day:)

What is your predominant mood on a daily basis? Whatever it is…its a habit- with the right understanding of how you are a Creator- you can create a new predominant mood- one of :

” I am one who is in love with everything all the time.”

Namaste.
