"Let's have a merry journey, and shout about how light is good and dark is not. What we should do is not future ourselves so much. We should now ourselves. "NOW thyself" is more important than "Know thyself." Reason is what tells us to ignore the present and live in the future. So all we do is make plans. We think that somewhere there are going to be green pastures. It's crazy. Heaven is nothing but a grand, monumental instance of future. Listen, now is good. Now is wonderful." ~ Mel Brooks

A Season of Mindfulness; Day 2

As it usually happens, things don't always turn out as planned. My day today was all about learning to let go and give it over to { God, the Universe, Spirit }. I expected to experience things in order for me to put into practice the higher parts of myself, but........just not so quickly!

I had my monthly full day of class today. This requires me to drive 45 minutes from home. Now, we are big proponents of purchasing 2nd hand cars ( or 3rd, 4th etc.)!! Our beloved Honda Odyssey has been giving us clues that her end was near but no clue has been more clear than today's!  

It was snowing this morning when I left for school. I drove slowly down dirt road to the main road, about 1 mile or so. As I was nearing the end of the road I began to break as I normally do but there was nothing but ice under me (snow was covering it, the roads seemed fine, I must have just hit a slick patch!!). My car wouldn't stop. I slid the whole way down the road........had a quick thought for a moment that "Oh, gosh......there could be a car coming." I could barely get myself to look to see if I was going to get hit by an on-coming car. I cringed as I slid into the main road, quickly turned the wheel to get the car straightened out and........then........nothing. My ears were buzzing. My heart was pounding. And I was driving; as if nothing had happened at all.

I got to school and had a lovely day. Gave and received two massages in preparation for our midterms next week. I left school early today as I was meeting family up North for a fun little family outing. My instructor stopped me on my way out and asked if I would be willing to hook in, energetically, at 4:15pm as our class would be sending some light and love to a classmate of ours who has been having a difficult time. I was glad to be asked and said that I would hook in as I was driving. I hopped in the car, stopped at the nearest gas station, and pulled up next to a pump. I got out of the car and noticed my pump number........13. I chuckled at myself as I was about to get back in my car and pull to a different pump (I'm a bit superstitious). I went in, paid for my fuel, came back out, and proceeded to call my husband as I pumped. We chatted, checked in about whereabouts. I remembered he had mentioned to me earlier in the week about needing to replace our front right tire. I checked in with him about that. He believed that all would be well. I agreed and was on my way. As my exit lay before me, I noticed a strong calling in me to be very aware of my surroundings. My eyes and ears became very keen to everything; lights, sounds, and other distractions. I proceeded to pull off my exit and head down the ramp. At the bottom of the ramp I noticed it was 4:14pm. I took a deep breath, pulled up to the next stop light, stopped, closed my eyes, began to sink in to the swirling energy about and out into the Universe. I opened my eyes, pulled through the stop light and............

I am so thankful for all the Angels that were with me today; the ones that shielded me from on-coming traffic, the ones that held my car together until I was in a safe place, the ones that whispered to me to be ever present. I am thankful for the Angels that made it their promise to get me to all the loves of my life tonight.........

There are so many more photos I wished I had to include ALL of my beloveds.......you know who you are.

On this second day of my Season of Mindfulness, I am utterly aware of how much we don't have control over what happens in our life. We can control our actions, our decisions. We cannot control the outcome. I understand more deeply how every moment counts, every second we are awake means we are to be listening for the subtle whispers of our Angels. Don't get lost in the mire, swim above it all. Breathe deeply and fully. Honor what is being asked of you and DO IT with passion and love. Return to your loves everyday, without fail and give them your heart, all of it!

Smile. Breathe. And go slowly xo


  1. ok, what happened to the car?? did the wheel just come off? oh my gosh!
    and there you go, right at the end there, saying the good stuff... "without fail, give them your heart, all of it"! yes yes yes!

  2. Scary right?? I thought it was just a flat tire and then I saw it! Oh my, all the "what ifs" that ran through my head! *sigh* Yesterday certainly put many things into perspective. I guess I was really in a rut :)


I very much enjoy connecting with you in this space. If you feel inspired to leave a comment, please do!
