Counting My Blessings

Blessing 1.  Blessing 2.  Blessing 3.  Blessing . . . Infinity

 

No matter who you are, where you live, and what is going on in your life, you will always have abundance if you count your blessings.

Remember –

whatever we focus upon and energize,

we create more of that.

 

So with Hurricane Irene headed this way, I focused on peace, harmony, balance, and love.

I went outside and did a spiritual ceremony the day before the storm arrived in my area to align myself with the energies of the Earth and to pray for all beings in the path of the storm.  I sent Love to H. Irene.  I asked for the wind to quiet down.  I asked for the rains to decrease. I asked for gentleness for all.

Because I have learned to live my life in connection with Mother Earth and Nature, I also asked that whatever cleansing and healing were needed to be achieved by the storm be allowed to take place with the least amount of destruction and dislocation possible.

It’s not harmonious when weather forecasters speak negatively of rain and storms all the time, just because a few humans. or even many humans, are inconvenienced.  Storms have a purpose.

Storms clean the air, the plants, and the land.  Just think, with all the electric power out, and the planes not flying, and the cars and trucks not moving around, the air is actually cleaner than you have been breathing here on the East Coast for maybe your entire lifetime.  Use this opportunity to take some really DEEP breaths and to get some OXYGEN into your system.

Yes, many people are having a “hard time.”  Many are dealing with loss of home, family members, business dollars, and so on.  Everyone else you read or hear will talk about those aspects of this event.

I’m here to share the blessings.

 

Thank you, Oh Lord, Mother/Father Source, All-That-Is, for the blessings you have heaped upon me.  The sunny dry weather that followed the storm.  The basement that is drying out quickly.  The opportunity to take a break from mundane affairs and the gifts of many “surprise” experiences.

  • SURPRISE – my electric power is out.
  • SURPRISE – my electric power is back on.
  • SURPRISE – it’s out again, and then back on quickly.
  • SURPRISE – my land-line phone and DSL are gone.
  • SURPRISE – my land-line phone is out, but the DSL is ON!!
  • SURPRISE – when I hit the restart button on my furnace – it WORKED!!
  • SURPRISE – Hattie, the feral cat I help out, showed up today SAFE and sound and eager for breakfast.
  • SURPRISE – . . . I wonder what the next surprise will be?

I am SO BLESSED!

 

GRATITUDE and APPRECIATION, Oh Lord, I send to you and to all the nature spirits and elementals, to the Wind and the Storm, to Irene, to Mother Earth for all the bounty I receive.

Remember the yin and yang principle.  Each contains the other.

Whatever you focus on is what you create.

Therefore, focus on the blessings.

 

  • BLESSING – my cats and I all survived and didn’t have to leave our home.
  • BLESSING – I only had 4″ or so of water in my basement.
  • BLESSING – the power came back on within 24 hours.
  • BLESSING – the sunny dry weather is helping my basement dry quickly.
  • BLESSING – Despite having 60 foot trees right near my house and 40+ mph winds, no significant limbs came down during the storm.
  • BLESSING – I’ve had several very peaceful days of just BEING instead of constantly DOING or STRIVING to do things.  I had no choice except to sit and be quiet and practice being in a peaceful place inside myself – a wonderous gift and a tremendous lesson in patience.
  • BLESSING – The friends and family I’ve called since the storm are all doing well.
  • BLESSING – Thank you for the opportunity to help others, to give them energetic support and encouragement.

This evening,

there will be a prayer circle

for those who were in the path of Hurricane Irene.

Please note that I do not think of them as “victims.”  I don’t see them that way at all.  I see everyone as in the perfect place for his/her spiritual growth, experiencing exactly what has the greatest opportunity to help awaken that person.

Still, each is worthy to receive the greatest abundance in all respects.  So tonight we will ask for abundance, healing, awakening, love, support, and appreciation for each other and everyone else.  . . . And we can ask for more.

Please join me.

And yes, I am requesting that everyone pay a fee.

 

If we were living in a community consciousness, I would not have to explain why.  Everyone would know that an exchange of energy maintains balance and harmony for all.  Money is energy, as is everything else.  In an indigenous community, the healer–shaman–priest–midwife was supported with a home, food and other things, plus gifts of all kinds in exchange for their service.  In our culture, it’s money that we use instead.

Thank you all, and namaste,
Nedda

 

 

Daily Wisdom: The Web of Life.

WE ARE ALL PART OF THE WEB OF LIFE.

 

1. WISDOM: What is the wisdom you would like to give me today?

As part of the web, it is time for humanity to remember that everything we think, feel, say, and do affects the entire web.

Hurricane Irene’s purpose is to help humanity on the eastern coast of the US and elsewhere remember this connection.  Remembering is not just a mental construct, but a way of living. It’s time for humanity to change the way it lives on this planet.

Start by doing sacred ceremony.  Sacred ceremony is essential to restoring humanity to its rightful way of being on this planet.  Expressing respect, appreciation, and love for Hurricane Irene, the Earth, and all the other kingdoms of the Earth is a first step in this direction.

2. LESSON: What are you trying to teach me?

Reconnection and rememberance are two aspects of what is necessary in your life to create wholeness within you.  As a teacher of others, you must lead the way back to harmony and balance, what some Native people’s call the Beauty Way.

 

LIVE YOUR TRUTH.

LIGHT THE WAY.

SET THE EXAMPLE.

 

3. RESISTANCE: What have I been resistant to accepting in the past that I’m ready to receive now?

Yes, it does take more time to do ceremony, but you know how to do it.  You open your mouth and speak from your heart.  You allow compassion and gratitude and appreciation to pour forth in whatever words come through.

3 a — SURRENDER: What do I need to surrender?

Laziness.

3 b — ACCEPT: What do I need to accept?

Responsibility,  It is no longer time to “let someone else do it.”  The time is now.  The place is here.  The person is YOU.

4. ACTION: What action would you have me take today to serve my highest path?

TODAY – do sacred ceremony for the healing of humanity and of the Earth.  Do it daily.  Do it with feeling.  Do it with reverence.  Do it NOW!

5. TO RECEIVE MY HIGHEST TRUTH:

5 a — SURRENDER: In order to receive my highest truth, what idea, behavior, or belief do you want me to surrender?

That you are in any way separate from anyone else or anything else.

5 b —ADOPT: To live my highest truth, what new idea, behavior, or belief would you like me to adopt today?

I AM ONE with All That Is.  I am THAT!!

 

THANK YOU.

To progress on our paths, we must be willing to make changes.

  • We must be willing to surrender limiting beliefs and ways of being.
  • We must also be willing to adopt new beliefs, new ways of being.

Both of these are challenging for us, at times, to do.

So to start off, we ask for the information. Then, if we are truly willing to change – to expand and to give up limitation – we begin one step at a time.

We surrender. . . and if that feels too difficult, we ASK FOR HELP and set the intention to surrender.

We accept something new . . . and if that feels too difficult, we ASK FOR HELP and set the intention to adopt the new way of being.

Namaste,
Nedda

Daily Wisdom: Storm Brings Connection

GO WITH THE CHANGE.

 

1. WISDOM: What is the wisdom you would like to give me today?

Today, take pressure off yourself NOW.  Just because there seems to be a storm (Hurricane Irene) on the horizon, allow yourself to remain in the NOW – at peace.

Hurricane Irene - Aug. 25, 2011

Since you are a part of Mother Earth, all storms in her energy field are a part of you and reflect/express the inner storms of your emotions.  Be completely at peace – LOVE is still the answer.

Love yourself.

Love the Earth.

Love the storm – for it brings transformation and connection.

When there is flooding, it reminds us that we are part of the Earth – her partner, not her controller.  Floods wash away what may no longer be appropriate for Mother Earth to carry on her body.

When there is loss of property, it reminds us that all is transitional – that change is the only constant.  We must be ready to let go of the old to make space to receive the new.  We can then go WITH the change.  We can prepare, but do not RESIST.

When there is loss of electric power, we can choose to hear the nature sounds again, to see the night sky as it is mean to be seen, and to remember our partnership with Mother Earth and the Nature Spirits.  We can rediscover our own creativity to entertain ourselves and each other.

When there is what you falsely term a “natural disaster,” there is the emergence of community, cooperation, and the real connection between people that replaces the virtual world’s artificial imitation of connections.  You have an opportunity to see and touch and hear people who are physically present.

2. LESSON: What are you trying to teach me?

It is time to LOVE change – to TRUST completely that whatever happens

 

ALL IS WELL.

 

3. RESISTANCE: What have I been resistant to accepting in the past that I’m ready to receive now?

Change is not dangerous or bad.  Change simply IS.  If you LOVE it and go with the change, you eliminate or dramatically reduce the pain that resistance creates.

3 a — SURRENDER: What do I need to surrender?

Fear of change.

3 b — ACCEPT: What do I need to accept?

Love, and that you are worthy of it, and that all is truly as you have created it and mean for it to be.

4. ACTION: What action would you have me take today to serve my highest path?

Connect with the Nature Spirits and Mother Earth, and the other beings on your property.  Have a “committee meeting” to prepare for the weather that is coming.  Work together as a team.

5. TO RECEIVE MY HIGHEST TRUTH:

5 a — SURRENDER: In order to receive my highest truth, what idea, behavior, or belief do you want me to surrender?

Fear.

5 b —ADOPT: To live my highest truth, what new idea, behavior, or belief would you like me to adopt today?

Total Trust.

Focus on the outcome you CHOOSE to experience .

Be the Divine Creator that you already are.

Love others as you love yourself.  Love the Earth.  Love the storm.  Love the change.

THANK YOU.
