It's for YOUR dog...help for canine cancer; help for mental illnessHasidic Saying: (from Wayne Dyer's Book - The Power of Intention)
"When you walk across the fields with your mind pure and holy,
then from all the stones, and all the growing things, and all animals,
the sparks of their soul come out and cling to you, and then
they are purified and become holy fire in you."
Recently, I have had some pretty profound experiences. You ever get the chills? You know, the chills that come out of nowhere and sweep across your body and the temperature could be hundred degrees outside.
I call it angel sweeping. Angels sweeping over you to make a contact - a connection to let you know they are with you and to pay attention to the spiritual being that you are having the human experience.
A few days ago, my friend Georgia Beers lost her grandmother and she blogged so lovingly about it. I rarely have moments these days to read blogs but I happened upon hers and read it and felt such love for her and her journey. Georgia is a gifted writer and friend and I think she's got it all in the "human package" department - plus as many of us all know, Georgia is gorgeous - inside and out. I immediately sent her a prayer and I know her grandmother is now running some serious interference for her and her books. Go, Georgia, Go! We all love you and your books. It gave me a chill...sweet, sweet chills....
On a funny note, Bett Norris and I have been trying to trade blogs for about, oh, I don't know, three or four months now. We can't seem to find the time to get our thoughts to the table so I am just going to say to you all that Bett Norris is one of the most hysterical people I know. Funny, exuberant, and she tells a mean story, too. I love her as a person and as a writer and if you get a chance, check her books out...you will not be disappointed. I read Miss McGhee and loved it. As I read over this, I frankly have not gotten a chill, but am sure the next time I see Bett, the funny angels will rise and we will all be there to experience it. Remember the panel at GCLS last year. I still crack up when I think about that.
Now, to Wayne Dyer...if you have not read this guy - do. He is the karmic divine inspiration for our time and, ironically, I read his blog yesterday and saw that his mother passed in July. Chills. Uh-huh. So, while I don't know him on a personal level, I do on a spiritual one. I sent a prayer his way and know that what he states about death is true. He imagines it to leaving one room and going into the next...dying is like discarding our bodies like an old shoe. We move on, transformed to the next level, perhaps to come back to earth school or to venture to the spirit realm or to a heavenly realm to continue our soul's journey there.
I'm not quite sure. But, if you sit still in a quiet place in nature for 10 or 15 minutes, something might awaken in you to see that there is a mystery and it will unveil itself. For all of us...one day.
Leaving now, getting the chills.
I love you, Georgia....I love you, Bett...I love you, Wayne Dyer.
I love you, the reader.
