Metatron’s Cube Remarkable repository of sacred geometry
If I said that simply by drawing thirteen equal circles, I could
describe the universe, you might be a little surprised. Yet
that is exactly what is achieved by Metatron’s Cube and some
other shapes in ‘Sacred Geometry’. Mythically, Metatron was
originally human, elevated to archangel by God for his services
Foremost communicator between humans and the divine, he is best
known for his ‘cube’. Metatron’s Cube is based on a deceptively
simple pattern called ‘The Fruit Of Life’ (Diagram 1), which is
concealed in the ancient ‘Flower of Life’ (Diagram 2) inscribed
on the walls of the Osirion temple at Abydos, Egypt. The Flower
of Life contains a vast Akashic system of information (kind of,
short hand for the entire planet’s memory), including templates
for the five Platonic Solids. If you think this is far fetched,
read on – in a moment you will see the shapes appear as if by
magic. Sacred Geometry, by the way, is where the ‘mystery of all
creation’ meets science, and any skeptics out there might enjoy
further study, which will transport you from the Atomic Tables
via mathematics to the myth of Atlantis and crop circles in the
wink of an eye (which, as you may discover, embodies a very
special shape known as a "vesica piscis", and more, much more...)
Anyway, I shall be your guide through this vast landscape of
‘weird shape fractal zodiac geomancy’ (whatever that is).
Metatron is linked with Thoth (or possibly, Metatron IS Thoth –
ancient figure who pops up many times through esoteric history,
said to have reincarnated many times from Pre-history, Atlantis,
Ancient Egypt, even to now, possibly AKA Drunvalo Melchizedek).
‘Metator’ is Latin for a guide or measurer, which is certainly
akin to this cube. ‘Metatron’ also refers to the ‘Keter’ or
crown in the Kabbalah ‘Tree’, which is based on the ‘Flower of
Life’ (no doubt, as Madonna could tell you!): Hold that pattern!
Here comes the cube:
To make the cube, begin with The Fruit Of Life (Diagram 1).
Curves describe feminine energy, so to manifest something
(remember, this is a figure intended to describe creation), we
must add masculine energy, represented by straight lines.
Connecting all the centers of the circles on the Fruit Of Life
with straight lines is what magically creates ‘Metatron’s Cube’
(Diagram 3). Encapsulated within are all of the five known
Platonic Solids: a cube, a tetrahedron (triangular pyramid),
Octahedron (two square pyramids with bases joined), an
Icosahedron (twenty triangular faces) and a Dodecahedron (twelve
pentagonal faces). Erasing the lines in certain ways gives rise
to each shape (except in the case of the Dodecahedron, of which
more in a moment). Platonic Solids are special shapes: they are
convex, all faces, edges, and angles, are identical, and the
points fit exactly inside a sphere. The more than 100,000 kinds
of crystal in the world ALL derive from these forms.
Interestingly, Pythagoras and Plato didn’t mention the
Dodecahedron, perhaps wanting to keep it secret. Apparently, it
does fit (see Diagram 3); this may be a recent discovery as some
texts omit it.
Although named after Plato, the Solids were actually described
by Pythagoras 200 years earlier – he called them the ‘perfect
solids’ and claimed he found the info under the pyramids
(linking back to the ubiquitous Thoth who very much lurks in
Egypt). Each shape also represents an element: The tetrahedron
is fire, the cube is earth, the octahedron is air, the
icosahedron is water, and the dodecahedron is ether. The sphere
is the void.
Grids of light made from sacred shapes are what holds the planet
together, makes it the way it is. I saw this in a vivid dream.
Even buildings are pinned together like this, and further pinned
to the earth by sacred shapes. (I learned much about sacred
shapes on a Light Language course, happening in Bali again
Conception: Two cells merge, form a ‘vesica piscis’ – a deeply
sacred shape where the centers of two spheres or circles bisect
each other. Next sperm and ova pass right through each other to
become a single cell or zygote. Then: mitosis and the
chromosomes join, then migrate to North and South poles. Then a
tube forms pole to pole and the chromosomes split and migrate to
alternate poles. This is the complete prototype new human. The
zygote then splits into four cells and forms a tetrahedron inside a sphere. The next division yields a
star tetrahedron/cube in a shape called ‘the egg of life’.
These eight cells reside at the perineum – our center
(geometrically) and literally where we grow from. And an
important esoteric plexus, besides, on which our energy field
fixates. Anyway, eight cells divide into eight more, form a cube
within a cube. After this, divisions become asymmetrical as we
differentiate in all the tiny special little ways that make us,
well, special! At sixty-four cells the embryo becomes hollow and
the poles grown together and form a tube torus, one end of which
will be the mouth, the other, the anus. So, to sum up: life
begins as an ovum or sphere, becomes a tetrahedron, then a star
tetrahedron, a cube, another sphere, and finally, a torus.
So, if you ever find yourself on a different planet and need to
explain the Platonic Solids/Creation to an alien, all you’ll need are a compass, ruler, and the ability to draw thirteen circles...
References: “Ancient Secret of The Flower of Life” by Drunvalo Melchizedek. Symbolism and nomenclature “ These are not words I'm making up, these are the actual words that were used in ancient times to describe this. I think they called it the Flower of Life because it looks like a flower and because it [represents] the laws and proportions for everything alive and even not alive; everything that's manifested. ”
—Drunvalo Melchizedek, speaking in a presentation on the Flower of Life., 
Until we learn how to detach ourselves from a limited consciousness, human love, with all its limitations, will attract us against our will again. Detachment of this sort is cultivated by reaching for God in such a way that we feel Him satisfying the needs of any and all relationships.God is the Ocean of love, so it is possible to experience Him as our perfect father, mother, beloved, and so on, all at the same time. IT is only when we expose ourselves to all the aspects of God's love that we are then purified, that is, made full by its power. A limited consciousness will not allow us to experience such fullness.
Only by being faithful to One can we fulfill ourselves in this way. Souls have the habit of being distracted by the physical world. We have to study and look after ourselves to ensure that this does not happen to us. The only thing that breaks this habit is the practice of soul consciousness. By being introverted, by turning our attention to One, we will continue to receive light and might from God.
The Love of God
People tend to gravitate towards whatever produces an experience of love. They are drawn in that direction and often get stuck there. They form an attachment and this continues to suck them in. I was never attracted towards anyone or anything in this way. And I have always refused the kind of love that some people offer after conferring some status or title.
I don't think I have ever run after anyone's love ' not even at the point of my greatest spiritual search. I never expected it from my father, my mother, my husband, my guru, or my friends; from anyone. I always did have, however, a very deep desire to experience the love of God.
People started prayer and worship in the hope of receiving something from God; they had a pull, or desire, to experience the love of God.

Stay Close To Those Sounds
The sun turns a key in a lock each day As soon as it crawls out of bed
Light swings open a door And the many kinds of love rush out Onto the infinite green field.
Your soul sometimes plays a note Against the Sky's ear that excites The birds and planets.
Stay close to any sounds That make you glad you are alive.

How Do I Listen?
Listen to Others?
As if everyone were my Master
Speaking to me
A Great Need
Of a great need
We are all holding hands
Not loving is a letting go.
The terrain around here
When the flute is playing
For then I see every movement emanates
How could anyone resent sunlight? Keep walking in this spaciousness where the sun's flame is a white hawk.
But there is something flying higher. Notice how you say not more. Not this, not that. I do not know.
Negation points to affirmation. Say rather what completely is. -Rumi
p.s.-in case you are wondering what Sat Nam means...
The Mantra Sat Nam Sat Nam is a mantra commonly used in Kundalini Yoga and amongst its practitioners. It is frequently repeated three times at the end of a yoga session. But what is the importance of Sat Nam, what does it mean.
I’ve heard the following interpretations for Sat Nam via my Kundalini Yoga instructors:
•Truth is my identity •My identity is Truth •My True Self •Truth is our identity It has been called the process of naming ones self Truth. It can be used similar to Namaste, (the divine in me aknowledges and pays tribute to the divine in you.) Where the “Truth” is the divine.
Being one who likes to get to “Source” info, I decided to do some further research into the nature of Sat Nam. I made an assumption that Sanskrit is a rather root dialect and that “Sat Nam” in Sanskrit would provide supplemental information on the nature of Sat Nam.
I found this Sanskrit Dictionary, and looked up the words, Sat and Nam.
1.being 2.real 3.that which really exists 4.the real existent truth I’ve seen it written that Sat means Be, or more appropriately Be-ness. Which would be the essence of being. (HPB’s Secret Doctrine) I suspect some careful analysis would find an interesting correlation between Be-ness and emptiness. (For those of Buddhist faith)
but onward to Nam.
1.To bow 2.To submit or subject oneself And so one is bowing to Truth, to Be-ness the essence of being.
And the active interpretation of Sat Nam emerges. *************************************** ************************* (K)NEW BREATH OF YOU

Observe the wonders as they occur around you. Don't claim them. Feel the artistry moving through and be silent.-Rumi
Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.-Rumi
This is love: to fly toward a secret sky, to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment. First to let go of life. Finally, to take a step without feet.-Rumi

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vr3x_RRJdd4HUGGING YOU IN GRATITUDE
Open your arms ever so wide.
Then lovingly wrap them round your front side
and HUG, HUG, HUG yourself.
Gently sway from left to right,
caressing the body with adoring pride,
squeezing, pleasing, and joyfully teasing
this earth suit holding YOU.
Now that you've wrapped yourself in Gratitude,
extend this gift to others, too! Next time you do -
open your heart, creating a portal for your Love
and Gratitude to flow through, intentionally
sending gentle waves to warm, comfort and
connect on every level.
You will feel the difference - and others will, too!
Beware! You might find others getting in line
as Word gets round you are the best hugger in town!
"Inside my heart I visualize ever increasing waves of
light which eventually come closer and closer together
until it is a mass of white light energy. When I am ready
I open my arms and aim the energies that have built up
to my beloved Twin Flame. As I open my arms I then
draw them back to me as if embracing her in a HUG.
How it expanded!
This time as I did it I was asked to slow the image down
so that I could observe what was happening before it
gets to her. This time I repeated the ritual and I watched
the waves of energy as they left my heart. I saw them
moving out into the universe and what I then saw
surprised and amazed me at the same time. I could see
multitudes of beings absorbing these waves, this loving
embrace and it was being received in joy and magnified/
multiplied before it was being sent out.
First of all it was being sent to Mother Earth and as she
absorbed it she sent it out to her surface, offering it to
all beings upon her. It then reflected back out into a
multitude of universes. I was dumbstruck at the beauty
of what was unfolding in my hearts eye. I had tears of
Love and Gratitude rolling down my face as the enormity
and the results of this simple little hug had created."

I have been waiting for the right moment to come. Is all i can say about where i have been, & that i have had enough of this tragedy that has plagued my life for the last 5 years, and 4 months.
I have waited for surgery's to happen and held my jaw so tight that T M J has set in. Causing ringing in my ears and crickets to sound off at random.
I am awaiting an MRI of my Brain now and it is up to the powers at Be in Washington State to approve this procedure to be done.
I have not been able to go out with my husband and listen to music and dance and just have fun for too long now. That i did not even know that a "New Venue had opened in our Little Hamlet of Skagit Valley"..
My Sister in Law Barbara, called up & told us she was going to Conway to the Muse. My husband & i asked what the Muse was, & she did not know either. It would have been their father's birthday. He passed away November 1st, 2004. If he were still alive he would have been celebrating his 90th birthday. So i had thought it over in my head as to "What happens if it is too loud and i can't stand the sounds in my head caused by the loudness?"
Then just as soon as i asked the question, it was answered. IF NOT NOW? WHEN?YOU CAN ALWAYS GO OUTSIDE OR GO HOME!!!!JUST DO IT!!!
Sitting waiting watching the scene as a Beautiful Vibrant Woman took the stage. PIPER REVA A Sultry soul-soaked gypsy-meets-Jesus! with her Red Painted Guitar, & Her sultry voice, Truly Stunned me at her eclectic style of original songs. Unrehearsed just flinging them out to us in the audience. Her vocal range was astounding and pure.
It made me want to get my guitar out and play. I even got so mesmerized in her sound that i began to whistle to her song knowing just where she was going in her tune. I so miss doing music it had been such an important part of my life from a very young age. I have took 7 years of classical piano lessons and have had 3 bands and played in them singing and doing percussion instruments. Original Rock & Blues. I have had my 15 minutes of Fame, as a famous person once said. To where i did not miss, what i did not have any more.
I loved performing for people it brought great joy into my life.
Last night i could see myself doing it again. I will have to do a lot of work to get back to that point that i was in my life. It comes straight from my heart, and i was told that is all that it takes.
All i have is time.IF NOT NOW? WHEN?
I have reached out to several BraveHeart Women. Who are Healthy, Spiritually Strong, Inspiring Women. They have helped me to grow beyond my limitations!To Rise Up From Where I Am. I have really felt their love and gentle guidance to push beyond my pain and keep moving.

It has been a challenge for me to be such a high energy motivated entrepreneurial woman to be stopped dead in my tracks.
I never would have believed in a million years that i would still be living in chronic pain and not be able to wiggle out of it. There are no pills that will fix this it is mind over matter that i just keep moving forward with my "Hopes, Dreams, & Visions"! They are Alive!
I will Manifest them, & I will Honor My Truths! I will Rise to Be the Best that I can Possibly Be! Shining My Light to All that need it.
Roxanna Nunez (Aviddiva) has written a book titled Procrastination Manifesto(2) it is a 22 page fast read that helped me to see that i just needed to Do it! What ever it is big or small just do it.
What ever project or chore i have to do. Break it down into doable steps. This is a mantra that i have lived by for so many years and taught it in my Self Esteem classes to many people that have been working through their own recovery processes.
Roxana reminded me to find my tool belt with my coping skills still in it, & to put it on.
Life is too short to wait for someone to fix you. I am Finding that strength within side of me, to get back up & just do it.
No matter what, I have a Wonderful Life to Live! With So much Light to give, to others the strength comes for within.
Carmen Goldberg (CarmenG) here at BraveHeart is an incredible friend of mine who has shown me to keep trying no matter what.Just find something that you can do, and work through it. She does not tell you very much of what she struggles with day to day because she is living her life to its fullest. She has shown me by example what she is all about. I love her & her honesty. She has true grit & determination to reach for her Dreams & Goals in her life no matter what life gives her.
Ellie Drake the founder of BraveHeart Women's Community has touched my life too! Here is an excerpt from Ellie Drake's 'Inspiration In Action' Blog
1. Recognize you have Issues (self-transparency is vital) 2. Specify the Issues by writing them on a piece of paper (or a big piece of construction paper from Office-Depot ) 3. Trace back each issue to its source experience (do your best anyway) 4. Identify the current experiences of your life that activate these issues and cause a riot within the cells of your body (it's a non-feel-good experience) 5. Decide that it's time that you learn the tools that clear up the cellular Junk! (Stick by that decision or the lack of self-commitment will become yet another issue! Ouch...)
Learning to RELEASE effectively is a process that we were not taught....It takes a different type of intestinal fortitude to squeeze the crap out of your cells! (I'm cracking myself up writing this)" "Ellie Drake"
I have worked on my issues for many years and when she sent that out to us all i was so touched by her honesty. That she is not perfect, & has been working on her self too.
Encouraging us to work on our own issues in our tissues also.
All these women are true Heroins in my life. That they have helped me, and supported me on my healing path. Helping me to find myself again. And as for the questions. IF NOT NOW? WHEN? It is now that i must start living my life again. Piper's on stage companion passed away 4 days ago and she played and cried as she told us about it last night. She asked all of us an important question and an uncomfortable silence came over the crowded room.
She asked. Where do we go to when we die? Does anyone have an answer for me? I could not hold back any longer. I finally spoke up & answered her question.
Heaven is what i said.
She said back to me and everyone else that heaven was here on Earth.
I thought about it though out the night, & i have come to believe that we go back unto whence we came from, the spiritual energy that is all around us is real, & exist.
Just as a baby in it's mothers womb it is in it's own world and a thin layer is in between us and them. And we are in this realm and a thin veil is in between us and them.
I do believe in the here after.
Last night was my husbands father's birthday. He has since passed away and is no longer with us on this plane. I know Dad was with us last night. I could feel the energy of his soul, & So was Piper's friend and companion, Miss Poke A Dot!!! We all shared in the moment as the House Pet "Tara the Terrible" took the stage to sit with Piper.
Piper cried real tears as she shared her sadness with us. Piper also shared Her Joy in knowing that the spiritual energy was there. There is no denying it exist!
Wishing Success to Everyone who is involved in the Building of a School for Girls, in the Congo!!!
And a special Thank you to Tari Bussard for all your hard work with the Silent Auction. Such a Heart Felt Gift to the Children of Tomorrow.
God Bless you all.

We have free will to do as we wish every single moment of the day. I choose to be proactive in manifesting intentions of uplifting those around me & in my life. By shining my light an Being all that i can possibly be. Conscious Co-Creation is so very important as we move to a more brighter future together. Blessings with Love & Light, Namaste
Rainbows ~ full spectrum visualizations of watery manifestations bridging earth and sky right before our very eyes.
Rainbows offer a sensory confirmation that change is in the air, using present elements to create a shift in perspective - full spectrum, that is.
So it is with manifesting intentions. By shining our light (attention, intention) through water (our bodies being 70% water, brain 85%) an arc connects all that IS with all that may BE.
What is this arc, this connection, this bridge?
Simply this: Intention
Intention bridges emotion with possibility.
Like a rainbow ~ arcing through watery time, bending Light to reflect colors sublime ~ our intentions bridge heaven and earth ... connecting emotion with matter, possibility with manifestation.
Gratitude is our presence, witness and acceptance of this gift.
In Gratitude we stand with this Bridge of Light, a prism revealing the colors of white in remembrance - We are One as living Love.
Remember - One may wait for rainbows to arrive, or intentionally create one by spraying water into Light. Either way you choose ~ relax, enjoy and revel in the wonder of these watery hues.
oh, and check this out:
Light reflects off water at a 42 degree angle to create a rainbow ~ 42 Days of Gratitude = Full Spectrum manifestation. Whohooooo!
There is a prophecy telling of the day when a pink ray will be seen at the Heart of the Rainbow. This is a sign Humanity is growing to know Unconditional Love.
~ Image taken at Walnut Canyon, AZ. 2010 ~ Stacey Robyn
In opening our hearts, through the power of Gratitude, we live centered in Unconditional Love ... a full-spectrum path flowing before us, co-created by the intention to place our attentions on shining our Divine Light into the world.
Note in the picture that the the pink ray is centered in the green band. Green = Heart/Gratitude.
Also, notice how the rainbow is brightest in the darkness of the shadow? This is true for us, too ... for in our shadow is revealed the full-spectrum essence of Self -- the Light in the darkness -- and the wisdom to see Beauty in All things. Unconditionally.
Our intention to invite Gratitude into our Hearts is birthing a New Reality. Just imagine the wonders waiting to greet us as we continue to practice conscious co-creation!
Thank you, Beloveds, Thank you ... for this is a Collective manifestation and cosmic reflection of our choice to Be Love & Go Gratitude!
As we become more conscious of what it means to be Global-Minded our hearts open up to receive the abundance that is our gift from the universe that we are more interconnected that we once thought.
I found this in my e-mail today & felt that it was a valid piece to share with you.
My BraveHeart Sisters as you begin to travel towards this incredible gathering together, as we Risewhether we are in California or where we are planted.
It is important to know that everything we come into contact with will affect someone somewhere changing their lives one way or another. Impacting our Global Family here on our home planet Earth. We are one people. This is our Planet. Blessings of Love & Peace & Light, Namaste
You may find yourself seeking to understand the world beyond your locale today, which could have you feeling broad-minded.
You may feel progressive as you look outside your normal sphere of interest to explore the wider world.
You might realize you don’t know the exact location of a country you’ve heard mentioned. Or you might meet someone from a place you’ve never heard of before.
Whatever draws you out of your well-worn paths to connect to the rest of the world today can be considered a message from the universe and is worth heeding.
Even with the technology available to us today, we are not much different from villagers who receive news from a person traveling across their path.
For most of us, unless we know someone from a certain part of the world, or have been there, stories about a faraway place don’t seem to have much to do with us.
But just the opposite is true. Now more than ever, choices we make in our neighborhoods affect people around the world.
Our ecology and economies are intertwined, and our planet’s fate is one we all share.
By expanding our thinking to include people in other lands, we become part of a global culture, shifting the balance so that soon we may all make choices while shopping & traveling, driving, & eating that take into consideration our family members around the planet.
Your progressive understanding today can be the first step of many to bring together our human family for the good of our home planet.
Winds of Change are blowing all around us as we are going through life as we know it.
I have been reminded to keep my eyes focused on the purpose of why i am here still, and what i have to bring to the mix of all that is happening in the world.
Some very dear friends of mine are avid walkers in our community. We were discussing how life is so difficult for so many, & what can we do to help with bringing some peace into their lives.
They told me about their prayer walks. How they dedicate time on their walk, to certain people along their path to stop, & take a moment to pray for their needs.
I thought about that, as i was going over to my daughters home to give her hugs after she had gone to her bosses fathers funeral that day. She had felt troubled by not being there for her friends that had passed away in the last few years. Listening to her i could hear that there was something else that was still bothering her. I asked if it has to do with today being her older brothers birthday. I could hear her soft small voice bring forward the words saying "yes it could be also be what's bothering me".
Her brother Joshua, was only 2 months when he was taken up to heaven. He only needed a body. His soul did not need the lessons that we are here to learn.
She always thought that he was her little brother, and in truth he was 4 years older than her.
I went & hugged her & spent a little time with her. When i was leaving i could see she wanted something. I asked what i could bring her. We both thought about it, then we both said something lemon like, or chocolate. Then we laughed. I told her how to make the lemon for lemon pie, but that was not what she was after.
I told her i would get her something, i hugged her again & left.
As i drove away i remembered my friends telling me about their prayer walks. I do prayer drives, & just talk with God about anything that is troubling me.
So i decide to pray for the things that are great in my life and the abundance that God has given me in my beautiful children. Those that are still living, & the one that has passed away to live with the Lord.
As i got closer to my destination i could feel that my burdens had been lifted. I was grateful for being able to help my children with what ever i could do to make their lives keep moving smoothly.
I went and took care of my mission to drop off my youngest daughters phone bill that she had asked me to do for her before she left to go out of town.
My youngest daughter was on her way to her husbands biological Grandfather, on his fathers side of his family that lives in Oregon. He just met him a little over a year ago. Due to the fact that he was adopted at birth, and never knew his real parents, or that they even wanted to know him.
My daughter could feel that he wanted to know them so she sent letters out, and yes it took quite a while to find them but he finally did. He found that he was very much like his real father and that he loved the same sports and cars and so many other things that they had in common. He also found out that his father had passed away when he was 4 years old on his way to work one morning. He and several of his co workers were hit by a train and passed away.
Its been nothing short of a miracle that he was able to connect with his fathers parents the way that they have done. I am truly amazed at how God works in mysterious ways. Always giving us not what we want but what we need.
They got to spend quite a bit of time getting to know them going down to Oregon and staying when ever they could.
This weekend is different because it is going to be his last time to see him alive. His Grandfather is passing away due to terminal illness.
My daughter has been so very thoughtful in so many ways. She got everything accomplished for their trip. She even worked that last day before they left, and went home to pack up everyone and go. I got to talk with her several times before they left, & she was going to come over on their way out, & give me a hug. But time got away from them. They had to get down the road. They had about a 6 hour drive ahead of them.
In going to drop off their phone bill i prayed that i got to help them, and how grateful i was to have such loving children that thought of others the way they do. That they are all very spiritual children that are always doing something to help others. I am so very proud of the fact that i put them in the Hands God & they are all walking their own paths with him.
As i went to do my other mission to find something for my other daughter i was in the local market and in the bakery section and it dawned on me that she wanted to celebrate her brothers birthday. She was afraid to ask for a cake. So i called her right there and started to ask her what she wanted and she did not know what to say. She told me to pick and she would be happy with that.
I chose a chocolate sour cream mini bunt cake. It was perfect. On my way out of the store i was over joyed to get to do this for her & for me too.
When i got back into my car i cleared my throat and broke out into song and sang him Happy Birthday. Something that i never got to do.
Healing comes in such strange ways. I have needed to do that for so long and kept my self from feeling those feelings because they just hurt so bad. But they were necessary to be able to let his spirit go to be free. I was finally able to sing praises for his soul to have 32 years of Happy Birthdays in Heaven.
I got to her home and showed it to her and she got so excited. It was so very yummy and worth the trip & prayer to get to the other side of what the winds of change had brought into my life that day.
We gave each other big hugs and i went home feeling better than i had in years. About Life & Death & Life still ever growing and changing all around me, you, us as we know it.
About 11:45 p.m. my youngest daughter called to see how my day went and that she did not forget her brothers birthday and wanted me to know that she loves me so very much and how thankful she was that i was able to help her with all that i do.
I went to sleep in peace & grateful for my children all of them. How they have shaped my life to be such a beautiful one that i cherish so much. Just as i cherish each & every one of them.
Sabbath; The ancient ancestors called it "the sacred pause" - a time of stillness, connection honoring and gratitude. In sacred pause, we summon the holy - above us, below us, around us and within us. Spiritual Sabbath as sacred pause is a connection of the heart, truth and inner knowing in communion with God.
I know that you just have to do what is right for you. To live your life authentically to the best of your ability. I have tried to do this my whole life. Showing my children that they could do anything they put their minds to.
My Oldest Daughter has been working on a special project for her significant other
She had me come over and view it last night and i must say it is a "Spectacular Work of Art."
I am so very proud of her, for doing what she knows is right for her own heart.
So many people go through life not knowing what they want. Or who they want to be with.
And she has figured that out, and is so very happy with her decisions that she has made for Her Life.
I totally support her as a Woman who is being true to her Authentic Self.
When you raise your children you don't know what they will be when they grow up. You may nudge them in the direction in which they say they want to grow up to be someday.
But ultimately it will be their decision on what they do. Also with who they end up being.
Not our decision to make.
We do not own them.
We may bring them into the world but it is really up to them what they do with their Precious Lives that they have free will over.
Just as we have Our Precious Lives that we have free will over.
When i was in College working on my Business Degree, I learned that people change their careers two or even three times in their life times.
They either don't like what they choose to do with their lives.
Or they don't like the person that they have become, perhaps compromising their values to earn a better income.
Or that it just is not what they want to do for the rest of their lives. And they need to change course on where they are going so they end up where they really want to go.
As some of you know, i have been going through the post operative phase of my recovery from what has been a life altering disaster that i would not have chosen to go through, i have actually learned a lot about my self and how i want to live my life. I am actually free to be me.
To Live My Life Authentically!
To Love My Self For Who I Am!
To Be True to My Inner Knowing!
To Do Everything I Have Set Out To Do, In Doable Steps!
Grateful for the Blessings & the Lessons that I have been given in raising my own Children to be who they want to be.
