The Power of Roses

Mom and Roses2OPprintIt has come into my attention that there appears to be a theme presenting itself that involves my parents who have both passed on.  In the month of May I was intuitively prompted to post on Facebook this art piece of my Mother to honor her on Mother’s Day.  I created this piece from an image that came to me in a vision a couple of years ago,  Then, in the same manner, I was prompted to post this picture of my Father in honor of Father’s Day.  Roses are the theme.Dad and RoseI2

So early last month I was guided to use rose essential oil and water which I applied daily.  I felt it was to bring about an opening of my heart.  I noticed the scent brought on a soft gentleness and peacefulness to my being as I felt I was embraced in a compassionate cocoon of love. By the way at the time of my parent’s passing over, I did set an intension for my parents to come to me whenever the time was right and we would talk.  I intuitively sensed that the power of roses was preparing me for whatever was to come. 

So earlier this month a most remarkable event happened where my Father came to me in a vision and asked for forgiveness.  He went onto say that he didn’t have the understanding of how important it is for a daughter to have a true Father.  What I sensed he was referring to was the inconsistency of his emotional support as I was growing up and there were times mainly as a younger man he didn’t always have maturity in his actions. 

He then told me how much he loved me and how proud he was of me (which he never said to me when he was upon this earth).  He continued by stating that he would be here for me as I go through this journey of healing.  He ended by saying how much he wanted to communicate this to me now.  I then expressed my appreciation for his kind words to me and that he did the best he could given his understanding at the time.  I knew deep in my spirit this was a HUGE happening as I felt a soft, soothing sensation in my heart.

Since that time, I have been observant of how this event may change me and I will continue to embrace my Father’s words to welcome the healing that it will bring forth into my life.  One thing I have noticed is that there is a lightness in one of my chakras that has a Father theme.  Thank you!

Even though this was not the first time my Father has come to me, this event felt so much more monumental than other times.  I have observed and sensed there is a timing that cannot be pushed to these kinds of events.  As I write this, I am now hearing the word patience as one walks through any kind of healing.  It will happen in its own good (God) time and for that, I am patiently grateful.  I also have a deep appreciation for the power of roses and how this divinely intelligent Universe works.

Love, light, and happy healing trails!

p.s.  My Father did come from an underprivileged background and it still amazes me how hard he worked to provide for me and the family.  In many ways he was self-taught yet took advantage of educational opportunities to improve himself.  He was also frugal yet generous at special times and had such a wonderful sense of humor that I cherish to this day!

Where is the Real Quiet World?

Quiet Inner WorldMany are now able to either gradually or even in some states quickly open back up from this stay-at-home status.  For the most part, I did fine during this period.  Perhaps it was due to my attitude of going with the flow as best as I could.  Even though I had frustrations with a health situation (see last blog), a remedy did come into my attention which I attributed to being in more quiet time!!! Thank you!!!

What I did notice is that when things started to open up I was feeling a sadness especially where it went swiftly from close to open.  This got me to look into why that was. What I discovered was that I felt as many retreated to their homes, the energy had a quiet feeling to it.   Being sensitive to energies, this felt so heavenly for my soul.

It’s no wonder that even the animals were feeling this and started to roam in areas usually occupied by noisy humans.  And since animals live so much in the present and naturally do and go where it feels good to them, they came out into those more quiet places.

Another thing I became aware of in the astrological world is that there are six planets (there are a total of ten) that are presently in retrograde and will remain that way until the middle of July.  When a planet is in retrograde it is an indication for a more inward, quiet focus.

As I was pondering these things, I came to realize that not only was our quiet world now moving back to our more noisy one but this inward pull of so many planets in retrograde was adding to this feeling of sadness.  This helped me to understand why I was feeling this so intensely.

Our natural world which we are a part of, as are our animals and our planets, will give us clues as to a beneficial way of being and living. I have found in that world there is a wisdom that we as humans for the most part haven’t quite tapped into as have the indigenous people of our earth.  I do pay attention to these signs and do my best to align with that rhythm.

I also came to intuitively do more meditative time as I walked through this sad feeling.   What I noticed as I continued to do this and to observe that sadness with gentleness and kindness is that it brought me into a better place.  So as we go into full or semi full mode again I am being reminded where is the real quiet world. It is always within me regardless of what is happening throughout our land.

Love, Light, and Happy Quiet Trails!

p.s As events continue to unfold with the protests going on throughout the United States, the more we can connect to the quiet world within the more we bring that energy into our outer world. Also through prayer and sending love and light to our country and our fellow human beings, we can help support a shift in the energy into a positive way forward for all.

Space – The Final Frontier?

Space - The Final Frontier PictureAnybody that is familiar with the original Star Trek knows this is one of the opening lines for this TV series.  It popped into my attention as I was pondering what is happening in our world especially social distancing–expanding or giving space between each other.  I also relate to space as the stillness, the silence, the no-thing-ness from which all comes from.

So in this new way of being with ourselves and one another, we are being given so many opportunities.   The opportunity to give space and to learn how to greet each other differently, to give space to our wildlife population, to give space to our Mother Earth.  The opportunity to give and be with our own space.

This ‘giving space’ is mainly referring to our external world yet I have had a couple of experiences that has directed me to pay attention to the space, the stillness, the silence of my inner world.  This I feel is another opportunity perhaps not as much done in our society and may be considered that final frontier.

So as I had mentioned in my last blog, I used EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) tapping to cease an episode of heart palpitations. I’m still so grateful for this tool yet I still was experiencing being one or two steps away from another episode. 

I found that movement of my body was not my friend. Even talking at times could trigger going over the edge…so for the last six weeks I’ve been relatively still.  Even though I intuitively knew that this outer stillness was a reminder of connecting to my inner stillness, there were times I was very frustrated.

Whenever that came upon me I tried my best to accept what is and go into this feeling of frustration.  I also watched my thoughts and on a daily basis I knew it was important to count my blessings.  This wasn’t always easy to do yet I intuitively felt this ‘extra stillness’ reality may lead to a remedy to this health situation and I am so super thankful that it did.

Through all of this stillness, I was led to include digestive enzymes before my meals.  I was already including natural ways of supporting my digestion ever since I discovered that digestive issues were the main trigger of my heart palpitations yet my body wanted more.  It’s only been about five days of doing this and I can already sense a HUGE difference in my well being!  I feel like a weight has been lifted from my heart!

Prior to this insight, I had another experience that is even hard to believe yet I feel I must mention it because it was so profound.  During the week of Easter, I had a visitation from Mother Mary.  She appeared in my living room as I was listening to hymns in dedication to her which I was guided to do along with praying to her. 

She spoke not a word as she stood with beams of light piercing through her blue robe and off white dress that formed a glowing globe of light surrounding her.  A total feeling of serenity overcame me as I stood there in awe.

In that silent appearance, I knew this was a powerful reminder to connect to the silence within my own being, to connect to a deeper part of myself, to connect to my soul.  I felt so supported and encouraged to do this as I continued to walk through all the frustrations I felt.  There are no words that can truly express how humbling this experience was.  All I can say is that I am eternally grateful.

I also feel her message was not only for me but for anyone that wants to connect to the frontier of their inner space and I have found how beneficial it is that this be the first and not the final frontier.  For my experiences have shown me that this is the true compass as one navigates through life and it is so much needed especially as we live through these most challenging times that are upon us.

Love, Light, and Happy Inward Trails!

One Good Tap Deserves Another

So far I have been relatively calm during this Coronavirus event except in one instance as you will find out as you read on. I feel this calmness is due to some inner guidances that I received which has helped me prepare for this current worldwide event. 

First I was guided to strengthen my immune system at the end of last year and the other occurred about 3 years ago as I was guided to pull back (to work with myself) from my outer activities which lasted about a year. This helped me to appreciate less outer and more inner focus.

A main concern of this stay-at-home directive was not going to my bi-monthly chiropractic treatments which has helped to reduce any heart palpitation episodes that may occur.  Around the time of what would have been my next appointment, I started to notice the signs of a potential episode. 

I’ve been fortunate to have been given ways to ward them off and continued to do that for over a week.  Still I’m sure stressing out about it didn’t help because it went into full blown heart palpitations.  I was in distress!

I doubled up on my preventive remedies, called on Archangel Raphael, pulled some Magical Unicorn oracle cards (my spirited animal connection), and sent out a prayerful SOS for guidance.  I felt this nudge to call my brother to alert him about what was going on.

After explaining my situation, he asked me if I had done any tapping.  This is the EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) of tapping on your body to bring balance.  I had completely forgotten about this technique as it had been a couple of years ago when he showed me how to do this.

Once I started to tap, immediately I felt a stream of releasing go down my legs.  After repeating the tapping about 7 times I was back to normal.  Hallelujah!!!  I was so relieved and so grateful for my brother reminding of this simple yet very effective technique!

I’ve always felt that this Coronavirus event would bring all kinds of opportunities for humanity (be it big or small) to learn more about ourselves and our world.  So far for me it was being reminded that one good tap deserves another to balance and better health. Stay tuned for I feel there will be more to come for all as we walk through this time of opportunities.

Love, light, and happy at home trails!

Patricia

p.s. There were a couple of other side benefits I noticed from the tapping yet before sharing about that I want to investigate more about EFT to solidify what I felt.  For anybody that has done tapping I would love to hear how it helped you!

The Power of the Circle

IMG_3173U

I’m walking by my bed where I have placed two of my washing machine hoses.  They just happened to form a circle and who do I find in the middle of that circle is my cat, Thomas.  Now he had the whole bed to lay upon yet he preferred to do this which really caught my attention.

It got me thinking about the things in our lives that are circular. Our eyes and head, the steering wheel and tires on our vehicles, many of our pots, plates, and cups, and the planets especially the earth we live on are circular.

Then I thought about what does a circle symbolize so I looked it up and this one resonated with me.  It represents the notions of totality, wholeness, original perfection, the Self, the infinite, eternity, timelessness, all cyclic movement, God.

So what I did in my next morning meditative time, was to imagine around me a brilliant Circle Energycircle of light at the floor level.  Then I just observed the circle to see what might happen next.  I then started to see the circle move clockwise very slowly and as it did I began to see the circle expand upward.  What I felt was an uplifting, cleansing, harmonizing feeling as I watched this rise above my head. Wow, I thought to myself, that was powerful.

So I now use this circle energy management tool whenever it feels right and I thank my beloved Thomas for bringing this into my attention in such a unique way.  It still amazes me as to the many ways (even challenging ones) he has supported, guided, and given me his enduring, unconditional love in helping me be my best!

Love, light, and Happy Trails!
