Patience

It’s been a while since I last posted, but today as I was sorting through some notes for my next book (which is why I have not been writing much here lately), I found this piece about patience. Since we have a few more weeks with Mercury in Retrograde, a time that tries the patience of many, I thought I’d go ahead and share my thoughts NOW.

Do not be impatient when it feels that nothing is happening. Remember that the Baker must wait while her cake bakes, and the Gardner must wait for the seeds he has planted to come forth from the soil and produce its bounty. A mother and father-to-be must wait for their child. These are all natural processes. They are not meant to be rushed. You know what will happen if a cake is taken out of the oven too soon or if you dig up a plant that has just broken through the surface of the soil. You also know the challenges of a child born prematurely. So you wait in expectation of what will come. In each process something’s happening that we cannot see. David Boehme called those things the “Implicate Order.”

Let go and trust the process.

In other words, trust God, the Universe, the Force, and then in what I call Divine Order the cake is ready, the flower blossoms, the child is born, and what you created is manifested. What you do until that happens is up to you. Some projects take much longer than nine months and yet, the same principles of Implicate & Divine Order apply. What you do during that gap affects the outcome of not only the project-at-hand but also other projects. For instance, do you check your cake every two minutes, taking it out of the oven, which changes the oven temperature? Or do you tackle a pile of dishes in the sink or have a cup of tea and chat with a friend? The possibilities are endless. The point is that all of life is a process. When we understand the stages of the process and embrace them, we will be in harmony with the universe.

We cannot be in control of every stage of the process.

Consequently, we must let go and trust. The sunrise and sunset reminds me of Divine Order. The stars in the night sky with its changing constellations show me what I cannot see during the daytime. So, I let go, do whatever I know I can and I wait patiently for life to unfold.

Like Mercury in Retrograde, time will pass. Like the Baker, I’ll enjoy my cake. Like the Gardener, I’ll harvest my peas. And like a proud parent, I’ll birth my next book all in Divine Order.

BTW Here’s my Heavenly gluten-free chocolate cake. It took a few trials to tweak the recipe, but I embraced the process and it was worth it.

Thank You, Universe!

Do you ever talk to the Universe? I not only talk to it but I also listen to, you know, that still, small voice that whispers in your mind’s ear. The one that teases and  coaxes, hints and downright pushes me towards those “pieces of the cosmic puzzle.” The one that reassures me that everything is in Divine Order no matter how crazy things look on the surface, that “this too shall pass,” and the sun will rise in the East tomorrow.

Today, I am especially thankful that I  listened as the Universe guided me in the direction of dreams – to China last year and to the completion of my book this year.

I’m grateful to all the folks who have bought my book, read it, asked amazing questions, and even reviewed it. It has been so much more than the journey to China and the process of writing and publishing; it has been a spiritual journey that I will never forget.

I look forward to what lies ahead. Shhhh  . . . I think I hear the Universe calling.

Celebrating the birth of a book – Conversations with a Hungry Ghost: Memoir of a Reluctant Medium

There is a Chinese proverb about a red thread of fate that connects us. I felt that red thread pull me to my ancestral villages in China, and through the veil that separates most folks from the spirit world. It played such a huge part in my life even before I knew anything about anything. So, naturally, it graces the cover of my book that I just released on Amazon. I hope you’ll check it out.

Conversations with a Hungry Ghost: Memoir of a Reluctant Medium.

Through the course of writing my story, I am no longer a reluctant medium.

Everything you need is already within you

I am always glad to share words of wisdom when they come on my radar.

Here are a few from http://thespiritscience.net/2015/08/26/12-truths-your-soul-wants-you-to-remember/

“Know yourself, sit with yourself and understand yourself. Everything you need, your strength, courage, compassion and love, all exists within. You have the choice as to which you need to find and bring out into the world.”

Thanks, LJ Vanier

The Journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step

A friend once told me that there are many paths to the top of the mountain. The mountain being a metaphor for enlightenment. As I pondered that thought, I imagined standing at the top, looking down the mountain towards the path from which I traveled, but also looking at the other paths that other people have also traveled. Then, that still, peaceful voice said to me, “Now, take what you know back down the mountain and into the valley (the mundane world).”

Yes, there are many paths. When I took my first step of remembering my past lives, a whole new world opened up for me. Past Life Regression has been an amazing path for me to raise my consciousness. So, even though there are a lot of crazy events going on, I still believe they are opportunities to rise above the chaos into the light of love.

Whatever path you choose, I trust that you shall find your way.

Third rock from the sun

Sometimes when life gets to me and I wonder how I will manage, I think about a sunrise, a sunset, about the planets floating in space. How is it that Earth – the third rock from the sun – hangs out as it does, whirling in space without my falling off? And I do not mean the whole magnetic field thing but rather the energy behind the magnetic field. It’s beyond my understanding, but one thing I have come to know is that the same energy that holds the earth in its place is also working somehow in my life. Then, I feel that everything is working out in Divine Order.
