Opening minds and hearts to Hope and Inspiring Change to Lead a Creative Life!
It’s the day before Easter and I have nothing to do? Are you serious? Making cookies and decorating eggs have never been my thing. Hanging a cross on my wall and saying Hail Mary’s and confessing have never been my thing. Dressing up and going to a Church have never been my thing. Saying prayers out loud and being in a synagogue have never been my thing. Kneeling before somebody or something has never been my thing. So what’s a girl to do? Sleep, Meditate, and see what comes out of my subconscious and moves me to the next.
So that’s exactly what I did. I laid in bed and listened to my Abraham Hicks and meditated for a couple hours this morning. Why not? I jogged outside and stopped at the playground to make up my own workout and then topped it off with taking 5 minutes to go on the swings! Ironically, as soon as I entered the playground the Sun came out! It had been a bit colder and windy when I was jogging but on my way home the playground was a great detour for the afternoon.
Now I find myself shopping at Whole Foods on a Saturday night. That’s a first! I picked up some easter lilies for mom and some ingredients for a new recipe “the colossal healthy candy bar”. (i will post a recipe only if it turns out good) My contribution and/or tithe for the easter brunch at mom’s house. My mom’s house has become “our church” the past 10 years. My mom is like the pastor and she keeps her church immaculate. While I was walking to the store I felt some thoughts coming on like “you don’t have any friends to hang with on a Saturday night?”. Then my brain immediately shifted to my Abraham Hicks mode… “this is awesome!”, “how will you fill your night and make it happy?”, “you have absolutely nothing to do and you can do whatever you want!”. I then entered Whole Foods and started strolling, the flowers were awesome so I bought some! I was surprised at how many people were actually shopping too! I walked aisle by aisle picking out my items and felt lucky to have and feel such freedom. It was a new experience for me
That brings me to Easter. Although I don’t follow any religious faith I have a belief in a "higher source” and a belief that we are all forms of energy and are all connected. I believe we have a chance at every moment to tap into our higher self and create the best life that we desire. I believe that our emotions can help us navigate more successfully to this connection. If it doesn’t feel good, put your thoughts on something immediately that does feel good so you can create that momentum and make all your wishes, desires, and dreams be seen by you and all! Needless to say I got pretty deep at Whole Foods, at least in my head. I am happy to have a place to go on Sunday and congregate with family and friends. I feel a sense of “rebirth” in my own right and feel the need to celebrate. I connect the fun Easter Bunny and Easter eggs to fertility and birth and starting a new. I connect Jesus and resurrection to seeing those powers in myself. I see family time as a means to keep myself grounded and connected while I am here on earth. So yes I’ll take a religious holiday! In fact, I want to celebrate all holidays. Why not? There is always a time to party and say grace, and receive gifts, and give gifts, and love and cherish these moments and people in time. Why not?
It feels good to connect and be with people that love you. It feels good to see all the goodness. I find myself so excited about this personal “resurrection” and so tuned into the possibilities and the beautiful people that surround me, and the fun atmospheres that help make each day joyful. I have soooo many desires and look forward to fulfilling many of them and look forward to all the people , places, and things that are and currently will be in my life or pass through my life. Thank you in advance.
As always, thanks for reading and listening.
