The Tapestry of Life is Filled with Holes

I must say, I love to observe the tapestry of life. How the scenarios create colors, rhythms, and can make knots or holes when a tiff appears. Once you take a moment to step back, the colors and the flow of this life tapestry is perfect in its imperfection.

I was flying home from California last Sunday and sat next to an adorable 7-month-old baby. His mother suggested I sit somewhere else so that his crying would not disturb me, but I chose to stay at my window seat because I love to look out the window, even at night. What was surprising was who disturbed me on this trip. His infrequent tears really didn’t bother me, but what did bother me was the woman sitting behind me who talked loudly and never stopped. If there was a lull in the conversation, she would fill in the gap by asking questions of her seat mates. The conversation went on and on and I wondered if she would ever stop. Indeed, for 2 1/2 hours, she did not. I definitely had a judgment of her which was creating a hole in my tapestry of life.

I did notice that her questions probed into what interested these young girls. She shared her wisdom of 30+ years and shared parts of herself as well. She did appear to really be interested in who they were. Towards the end of the flight, she mentioned her husband with great admiration and called him a rock star. My knot in the tapestry was my doubt that there was a man who could listen to this incessant chatter.

Glad to be off the plane at luggage, I saw her with her rock star husband. He was on the plane as well, just in a different row. He gently talked to her, kissed her, and I could sense that he adored her as much as she did him. He did not mind her chatter because he saw her good qualities and how she really cared for others.

This completely changed my view of this woman. Not everyone who is loved and is loving needs to fit into my mold. I drove home feeling content that even from afar I had met such kind and caring people. They come in many different packages and I can see I must keep my eyes open without filters to find them.

Lovingly,

Why Meditate?

A question you may ask yourself is why bother with meditations? Besides all the benefits, which I will list later, let’s just look at how our body works. We cannot push our bodies day and night. At some point your body will call to you for rest. This reprieve is required every single day. If you skip a day of sleep, it will be difficult to function and perform everyday tasks. Your brain also requires a respite.

Our psyche does not require as long of a break as our bodies, but it does need at least 20 minutes once a day to recharge. During this 20-minute pause, the brain reorganizes it thoughts, stressors and ideas. This allows for new images to form and inner guidance to be activated by increased intuition. Stilling the body is the first step towards calming the mind. Sometimes all it takes is for one to sit down and look out the window into nature. An extensive, exact meditation process is not always necessary, though a guided practice can help keep one on track.

Give yourself the gift of silence, once a day, for 20 minutes or however long time permits. You may find you will:
  •             Sleep better
  •             Have increased energy
  •             Calm a worried mind
  •             Let go of stress
  •             Feel physically stronger
  •             Become more aware of your surroundings
  •             Increase your intuition
  •             Love yourself
The list goes on. Try meditation and list the differences you find in your life.

Need guidance to meditate? Here's a link to some MP3s that will help you.

Blessings,

This Spring, Care for the Earth, Naturally

In the past I have talked about how to take care of your body, but now I will address how to take care of the body of the earth. When I get out into nature it feeds my soul and rejuvenates by body, therefore yard work is not a chore. Today I will give you information that will get you connected to and caring for the largest plant in your yard, your lawn. We are all one. We are connected to the animals, the plants and the land, so it is natural to give as much care to the earth as we give to ourselves.

It is spring in Colorado and it is awakening my senses. Our grass is beginning to turn green but in the north sections of my yard where the snow did not melt quickly, the lawn is looking pretty brown. Fertilizer will green it up but the chemicals do not support the environment. I will give you an easy recipe for a natural tonic for your lawn.

All you need is:
  • One full can of regular pop (any kind-no diet soda)
  • One full can of beer (no light beer) 12oz
  • 1/2 cup of liquid dishwashing soap (do NOT use anti-bacterial dishwashing liquid)
  • 1/2 cup of household ammonia
  • 1/2 cup of mouthwash (any brand)
Directions:
  • Pour into 10-gallon hose-end sprayer (any hose sprayer will do)
  • Spray on lawn till it runs off
  • In high heat, apply every three weeks
So does it work? We will see. Come to the next Reiki share on May 11, 6:45 and see how my lawn has responded to the tonic. Naturally I will be directing a little Reiki on it as well.

Want to know how and why the tonic works? Here is the link: http://origin.wusa9.com/weather/story.aspx?storyid=40316

Happy spring!

Healing Energy Codes

If you are reading this blog, you no doubt know how to move energies and activate healing for yourself and others. But today I am going to give you yet one more tool to place in your energy tool box. These are healing codes that were given to me, and I have mentioned them in my classes. At last I am passing them on.

There are those who know how to activate energy through numbers. Some of you may have met Wendy Knobloch at the psychic fairs that I have had here at my home. She is a numerologist and has passed along these healing codes to me from the source where she received them. They are free, and she encourages others to distribute them out into the world. If you find them useful, I suggest you do the same.

The end of the document references who brought in these codes. All I can tell you is that they work. I can’t say why as it is more than mere intention, but they do work and within minutes in many cases. I have used them and found they release in minutes the discomfort of nausea, bloating, itching, and the effects of allergies, to name a few. To access this easy-to-navigate healing tool, click here.

I hope these codes will ease any discomfort you may encounter for yourself and others.

In the Light,
Marnie

Are You Self-Critical?

Do you ever listen to the continual conversation that goes on in your head? I do and it is not always positive. When you redirect the energy and allow yourself to see another side of the story that's running in your psyche you can quiet the confrontation. I had such an experience just the other day.

While enjoying an evening of tango dancing, I found myself sitting on the sidelines waiting for a partner. After a few dances, no one came to my rescue. The teacher came over and began dancing with me, and we spent quite a few dances going around the floor as she instructed me on how to improve my technique. While driving home, I began questioning myself as to what was wrong with me because none of the male dancers came by to dance with me.

I allowed the cacophony in my head to give me a long list of reasons as to why I was not picked to be on the dance floor. All of them negatively judgmental towards myself. I was not comfortable with the scenarios I was creating so I opened my mind up to perceive a new way of understanding what was going on.

Then it came to me that this was exactly what I needed. The teacher noticed me and spontaneously gave me a private lesson. All was in divine order as it always is. I did not need to dance and practice with men who could not understand where I needed to change my style of dancing. While dancing with the teacher, I was able to receive help and improve my tango skills. What a blessing!

So I suggest to you today when you start hearing that negative self talk in your head that you take a moment to stop, breathe, and allow yourself to move around the situation to see it from another side. Spirit is always there waiting for you to ask for help and ready to respond. All it takes is consistency. The more you ask and the more you listen, the easier it will be to hear.

Listening to the sweet voices in my head,
Marnie

Relationships Can Be Teachers

Relationships come to us in many forms. We have them with family, co workers, neighbors, friends, and the ever challenging intimate relationships. The Golden Rule says "do unto others as you would have them do unto you," but sometimes the other person does not want what you want. A better rule would be to find out what the other person wants and offer to make it happen by working together.

The key is to pay attention to the mood and level of energy that is being created between the two of you in the moment. This will give you clues as how to respond to the question or circumstance. Perhaps their energy will not support your interaction at the time. Maybe a kind word or compliment will soften their energy so they will be more receptive to your input.

Open your intuition and sense what will serve the other party and then if it aligns with your intention, offer this to them. There is no need to give your power away or diminish who you are. There are sometimes when you can adjust the mood of the scenario by knowing what the other person needs.

Stop - reacting
Look - at the need of another
Listen - to your heart

With compassion,
Marnie

Parallel Lives

I would like you to consider that perhaps you have more than one life running at the same time. These are called parallel lives. The movie "Sliding Doors" with Gwyneth Paltrow follows this scenario. Multiple lives can confuse our current situation when they bleed into the present time frame, but they can also help us.

When there has been a situation in your life that continued to disturb your psyche, calling on a parallel existence could help. Let’s say, for example, that in this life your family dynamics were less than desirable. Even though you have looked at that situation numerous times and forgiven those involved, the memory still haunts you and records in your bodies: physical, mental and/or emotional. Now you can eliminate the charge by focusing on a parallel family.

Take a moment to still your mind and enter a state of relaxation and meditation. In the stillness of your heart, ask for a new family to appear, one who cares and nurtures you. You may see it emerge on an alternate time frame. See this as frames on a movie film. Run this movie in your mind's eye. See the current family on a filmstrip next to the parallel one. Turn off the current film and allow the parallel family movie to run. Step into this film and interact with the members of this new cast.

Notice how it feels to be in this new story line. Now make it your original story.

See you at the movies,
Marnie
