Beginning stage of awakening

We are in the beginning stages of the biggest collective AWAKENING ever seen in the history of mankind. This is what we have been waiting for! It’s a scary time for many because we are living in the unknown and we don’t know the future or how bad it will get.  I have felt disoriented at times, as nothing is the same. What I do know is that we are all ONE and interconnected and interdependent more than ever before. I do know that Love is all there is.

I have to admit that I got “sucked in” to the swirling energy of fear all around me by reading everything about the Coronavirus a few weeks ago, which led to me feeling anxious and fearful. Then I judged myself and felt shame and guilt for having these feelings. I’m grateful it only lasted for a few days before I came back to LOVE. This is not how I wanted to react as a Woman of Faith in God. I had to look deeply at what my truth was and what was important to me. I am human and forgave myself for getting sucked into the energy of fear.

Here is the message I received from Spirit:

I am bringing my people together through this world health crisis. I am waking them up. There is no need to be afraid because it is LOVE that is behind this. The world is out of balance with greed and power. You know the truth of who I am and who you are. Hold fast-don’t give in to fear.  Yes, feel it and let it go as quickly as it came. Stay centered and rest in me and recalibrate as you need to. Pray for the world and know all is well as I am bringing love into hearts that don’t know me. This is my plan. Relax and pray for your brothers and sisters.”

We are all invited to trust in a Power greater than ourselves to keep us and our loved one’s protected and safe. There are many who are suffering now with loss of jobs, income and we are hearing of friends and family members already suffering with the Coronavirus. The ramifications are beyond my comprehension. We are self-quarantining as Larry and I are both at high risk and not taking any chances with our health.

Here are some things that I’m practicing so that I can be responsible for myself and keep myself centered and in peace. I don’t do it perfectly and am living one day at a time.

  • I’m remembering the truth of who I am and that I’m connected to Source
  • I’m sending love to my family, friends and to the world
  • I’m listening to my body and what it needs when it needs it
  • I’m resting when I’m tired and stressed
  • I’m listening to my feelings; processing and validating them
  • I’m eating healthy and going out in nature for walks
  • I’m reaching out to friends and family through calls and texts
  • I’m praying and meditating several times a day
  • I’m listening to calming, peaceful music with a candle burning
  • I’m going within and clearing any resentments from the past
  • I’m trying not to judge others and what they are doing or not doing
  • I’m trying not to take things personally
  • I’m calling on the angels
  • I’m feeling COMPASSION for people and what they are experiencing
  • I’m trusting myself and what I need to do for myself
  • I’m listening to my intuition and what my next inspired action will be
  • I’m protecting myself by limiting what I read in the news and media
  • I’m smiling at people on walks and sending love
  • I’m trusting and surrendering to the unknown
  • I’m reading inspirational books like “Love is All There Is”
  • I’m laughing to lighten things up
  • I’m tapping when I feel stressed (EFT Emotional Freedom Techniques)
  • I’m taking more baths to relax my body
  • I play zydeco music on my walks which makes me want to dance, and I do
  • I have a stash of homemade sugar-free chocolate

I hope this list is helpful and you can add to your list of what you are doing to stay calm and peaceful. I am praying for you and ask that you pray for us. We are all in this together and need to support and love one another.

What does it mean to surrender?

The journey of faith is not for the faint of heart because it often requires TRUST and SURRENDERING to the unknown. This is not an easy place to be when we cannot see the future, especially if we like to control.

It is TRUST in a POWER greater than yourself whether you call it God, Source, Universe, Higher Intelligence, Higher Power or Spirit. It doesn’t matter what you call it. What matters is that you TRUST you are being provided for, guided and protected always. Do you trust that POWER in your life or do you live in fear?

I’m sure we’ve all had times when we don’t know what to do next in our lives and we may go outside of ourselves for the answers. We want others to tell us what to do because we don’t trust ourselves and we don’t trust God. Of course, there is nothing wrong with seeking guidance, especially when making a big decision.

As I’ve matured spiritually, I have learned to seek my answers from within through prayer, meditation, intuition, synchronicities and following my heart. Others cannot and do not know what’s best for my journey. It takes courage to go within and follow your heart, especially when it DOESN’T MAKE SENSE.

As I thought about this blog, God brought to mind a few instances in my life that I followed my heart even though IT DIDN’T MAKE SENSE. I’m so grateful I did.

It DIDN’T MAKE SENSE for me to buy the BLOUSE forty years ago when my ex-husband was out of work and we were on welfare. The blouse was $10 and I only had $10 in my pocketbook for milk and bread for our 4 children. But I heard the small, still voice of God say, “Buy it and I will provide.” I listened to that voice and bought the blouse, although it DIDN’T MAKE SENSE to buy myself a blouse when  food was needed for my family.

One hour later when I returned home from buying the blouse, I found an envelope in the mail with a note that read, “From the son of a carpenter” and a crisp $10 bill. I love to share that story and see the disbelief and awe on people’s faces because it is a story they won’t forget.

I’m grateful for the person who heard Spirit tell them to write the note and give me the $10 bill. I’m sure it DIDN’T MAKE SENSE to them either, but they followed Spirit and changed my life forever.

It DIDN’T MAKE SENSE to move to Maui 8 years ago to follow my heart to meet my soulmate and to leave family, friends, community and my business. I didn’t have a lot of money and sold everything of value to make the move.

It DIDN’T MAKE SENSE that I didn’t have a place to live until 2 weeks before I arrived on Maui. I trusted I was being led and the place would “show up” and it did. I shared a condo with friends overlooking the ocean and paid $300 a month for 6 months.

When I moved to the other side of Maui a year later, it DIDN’T MAKE SENSE that when I found my “dream house” overlooking the ocean, I stepped out in faith and followed my heart. I trusted that I would be provided for every month and I would be able pay the rent which went from $1200 to $2500. 

It truly was the grace of God and my willingness to TRUST & SURRENDER to God’s plan and will. For one year, I rented one part of the house before Larry and I became a couple and he moved in with me. I prayed EVERY STEP OF THE WAY and knew I was being guided. I waited for the answers and then stepped out in faith.

Is there an area of your life where you are being called to step out in faith or move in a new direction, but it just DOESN’T MAKE SENSE?

If I hadn’t trusted myself and the God within, I would not be living my dream life. If I can do it, so can YOU. If not now, when?

The Universe always provides

I appreciate how the Universe desires not only to support and love me, but to surprise and delight me. I’ve had several experiences this week that I would like to share with you. They may be small things, but I’m grateful because I know Spirit was behind the scenes protecting and providing for me.

Every day, I strive to live in gratitude because it’s my belief that what I focus on, expands and grows. If I focus on what’s missing in my life and what I don’t want, I get more of the same. It seems like when I complain and grumble, I may block my blessings.  If I focus on my blessings and what I have in my life, I open my heart to more love, miracles and abundance.

Rather than asking for what we want from God, Larry and I are practicing being grateful before something manifests. There is nothing wrong with asking for what we want, but we are trying this on and seeing how it feels.

For example, when we are looking for a parking spot, we say, “Thank you God for the perfect and right parking spot or thank you God for how everything is flowing with peace, ease and grace.”

I’m in the process of creating a workshop for women called “Awaken to Self-Love & Unleash your Potential.” I will be leading the workshop on Maui on March 16th at our home and again when I come to Rhode Island in July. More details to follow.

I presented this workshop a couple of months ago. It was very powerful and the women loved the workshop. I’m really excited about the workshop and have spent many hours putting it together.

I created a flyer that I really liked and wanted to put a border around it to make it look more professional. I tried everything on the computer, but couldn’t figure out how to do it, so I just gave up.

When I printed the flyer a few days later, guess what was around it? Yes, a lovely border! This has never happened before and I’m trusting that when I print more flyers, the border will show up miraculously again.

Another example of God showing up is when I sent a text of encouragement to a friend who has been ill and in pain for a long time. She was tired and wanted to give up and die. For some reason after I sent my text, I read it over again. There was a whole paragraph in the text that I didn’t write. It was perfect and exactly what she needed to hear.

I order from Amazon quite often because of the free shipping, prices and service. I received 2 emails this week that they had given me a refund on two of the products that I ordered. They said they weren’t delivered to me, but indeed, I did receive them.

I wanted to be honest and contacted Amazon to inform them that I did receive the 2 products and the refund back on my credit card. Joanne was quite pleasant and said, “I acknowledge your honesty and wish all of our customers were like you. We would like you to keep the refunds.” What a nice surprise that was.

Do you see how Spirit works in your life and do you give thanks? Perhaps it’s through synchronicities, meeting the right person at the right time or things just falling into place. The more we give thanks for our blessings, the more we will receive miracles and abundance. It’s just the way it is.

Choosing Change

The word CHANGE keeps coming into my consciousness lately. Are you able to go with the flow when something changes in your life or do you resist and feel frustrated and angry when things don’t go your way? Of course, it depends on what the change is and whether it is something that you initiated and wanted.

Every day we experience some kind of change or loss; our bodies change, our emotions change, relationships change and our perspectives can change. We may experience an unexpected death of a loved one, a health crisis, divorce, a loss of job or home.

I believe change is good, although sometimes painful and hard. Do I always like change? NO. Do I sometimes complain and resist change? YES. When I resist change, I may feel angry and frustrated and try to control the outcome. It is because I’m attached to what I want and think I know what’s best for my life. That never works and I dig a hole for myself and cause more suffering. A Buddist principle states that pain is inevitable, suffering is optional. We cause suffering when we don’t allow ourselves to feel our feelings and our pain.

When I ACCEPT change, I feel peaceful, relaxed and free. It is like I am saying to the Universe, “I trust that whatever is happening is for my highest good, thank you God.” When I’m open to change, I am saying YES to life and all the opportunities and experiences available to me, even though I may not see them. Acceptance is the answer to all of my problems. When I cannot accept every person, place or thing as exactly as it is, I will not have peace.

Sometimes it takes time to accept changes in my life and I must allow myself, however long it takes, to feel and process my feelings. I must be patient, compassionate and loving toward myself. For many years, I pushed my feelings down, especially anger. I wasn’t encouraged or taught to feel and value my feelings. Shutting our emotions down makes us emotionally, spiritually and physically sick. Today I know that feelings are a gift from God and to feel is to heal.   

I’ve experienced changes this past year in a relationship with a soul sister that has been painful and difficult. I thought we were forever heart-friends. She didn’t want to be friends anymore because I had changed to much. I understand that there are seasons and not every relationship is forever because our needs and desires change.   

I allowed myself to process all of my feelings; sadness, grief, hurt, disappointment and anger with the loss of my friend. I chose to take responsibility for my part in the relationship and not blame her or hold a resentment. It took courage and trust to believe it wasn’t good or bad. I didn’t take it personally or blame myself for what happened.

With the grace of God, and my willingness to forgive, I was able to move beyond the pain and hurt and send her love. I am choosing to love her unconditionally. I pray for her daily and continue to hold her close in my heart. The value of suffering is to WAKE US UP so we can choose LOVE.  I am choosing LOVE because Love is all there is.

How about you? What are you choosing today? Are you in resistance to some change in your life or are you able to accept “what is” and trust the Divine has a plan for your life? Choose LOVE. It is your birthright.

Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you. I send you love and light. May you feel love in your heart always as we are all connected and are ONE.

Larry and I have been hosting a bi-weekly “Love is All There Is” spiritual group in our home for the past two years.  It is a powerful group as all the members have been on the spiritual path for many years and we share our experiences about how to love more deeply and let go of what no longer serves us.

In last week’s group, one of the members asked if we could share our individual spiritual practices with one another. It was great to hear what’s working for others. Meditation was on the top of the list, as well as journaling, affirmations and sending love out to the world. 

Here are the affirmations that I pray with daily. Feel free to use any of them if it resonates with you.

  • I have all the time I need to do whatever I want to do & when I want to.
  • I RELAX and TRUST God’s perfect and Divine timing,
  • Money comes to me easily and effortlessly.
  • I have more than enough money to do whatever I want to do.
  • Everything flows to me with Peace, Ease and Grace (PEG).
  • My body is strong, healthy, vibrant & I have lots of energy.
  • I attract miracles and abundance into my life every day.
  • I am important and more than ENOUGH.
  • I am worthy to RECEIVE.
  • I am LOVE and loved.
  • I use my gifts for the good of all and feel fulfilled in the work I do.
  • My purpose is to give and receive LOVE.
  • I SHINE my light into the world.
  • My intention is to be peaceful, to love and to serve.
  • I ACCEPT and SURRENDER to Divine will and guidance.

These affirmations have changed over the years, according to what I intend to manifest. I know I wouldn’t be living on Maui with my beloved if I hadn’t believed and practiced my affirmations.

I would love to hear your spiritual practices and what has worked for you.

Do you need more Faith in your life?

I’m celebrating today and invite you to walk down “memory lane” with me for the last eight years of living on Maui. I moved to Maui, across the ocean from Rhode Island, eight years ago this week. I knew in my heart that I was going to meet my soulmate, and I DID.

I started writing my blog ten years ago and have written 443 blogs. I can’t even believe that I had so much to share. I thank you for your support, love and writing to me when a blog has touched your heart. It has truly been my joy and kept me going “within” to share it all with you. It hasn’t always been easy, but I knew if I was experiencing something, there was someone out there who was also experiencing it and could benefit from it. Friends share that I inspire them and give them HOPE and that makes my heart sing.

It was my FAITH that has brought me home to myself, to the God within and to the magnificent life I am living today. My FAITH in God; a Power greater than myself has enabled me to overcome sexual abuse, parental addictions, loss of close family members at early ages, divorce and so much more. 

Truly my FAITH is a gift from God and I love to share it with others. I don’t ever want to take it for granted. I’m sure that is why I was inspired to write my book, “Simply a Woman of Faith.” If I hadn’t written my book, I wouldn’t be living here with an amazing man who loves me and is a vessel of love to all he meets.

I continue to practice living in the moment, accepting what is, surrendering and trusting. I can do this because I know this Power is carrying me and has my back, if you will. I choose Love, instead of fear. I know Love is all there is.

So much has happened in the last eight years that I don’t even know where to begin. I have been guided, provided for and protected, as well as healed and transformed into the woman I am today.  My heart is full of gratitude.

When I first landed on Maui, I lived with a couple in a condo overlooking the ocean. I paid $300 a month and lived there for 6 months. I was so thrilled to be living here that I didn’t mind having everything I owned in one bedroom. I learned how to BE and was able to let go of DOING. I loved taking walks on the beach, swimming, relaxing and enjoying the beauty all around me.

When my 6 months lease ended, I decided to move to another side of the island that was more convenient and neutral. I started to take walks with Larry and we became best friends for 2 years with no romantic involvement. We called each other every night and supported one another

I found an ohana to rent and paid $1200 a month. It was only 500 feet, but it was like heaven to have my own place. I didn’t have an ocean view like I had before, but that was ok. I lived there for 9 months until my landlord informed me that they wanted to do renovations and I had to move and find another place.

Right after I found out that I had to move, I invited Larry to a party that I was invited to. I had never been to this house before and fell in love with it as it had an amazing view of the ocean.  As I looked out into the ocean, I turned to Larry and said, “This is where I want to live.” As fate would have it, I found out later that my friends were moving out. They recommended me to their landlord and she just happened to live in Rhode Island!

Although the rent was DOUBLED to $2500, after praying and meditating about it, I knew in my heart that it was God’s will. I didn’t have that kind of money, but I trusted God would provide and I was ALWAYS provided for. I stepped out in FAITH and every month, almost miraculously, I had the money to pay the rent.

I moved into the house alone and shortly after that, my eyes were opened and I KNEW Larry was my soulmate. A year later, he moved in with me and then surprised me at Christmas when he got down on his knees and said, “You are my queen and I am your king; would you like to make it legal?” We were married 2 ½ years ago and it has been the best years of our lives.   

Do you need more faith in your life? Ask God for this gift. Believe it will be given to you for as we ask, we shall receive.

How to attract your Soulmate

Have you ever dreamed about writing a book?  Have others said to you, “You should write a book?” Many people said that to me and my response was always, “Maybe someday- when I retire.” My dream of writing a book almost died inside of me.  I’m so grateful God didn’t give up on me as my book was published in 2007 and people are still reading it and I’m still reaping the fruits of it.

What keeps you from writing your book? For me it was FEAR (False Evidence Appearing Real). It took me 7 years to write, “Simply A Woman of Faith” because I was filled with fear and didn’t believe in myself.

Every time I went on a retreat, I would hear the small, still voice of God say, “I want you to finish the book.” I would write for a while and then stop because I thought I was wasting my time and no one would read it.  At one point, I stopped writing for a whole year and said to God, “I’m not doing it, you have chosen the wrong person” I was done, but God wasn’t done with me!

There were so many miracles of how God provided for me while writing the book. My son, Tim, said to me, “Mom, you have to change your yard sale mentality when it comes to looking for a coach and editor. Several people within a short time recommended Lisa Tener. I called her and felt an immediate heart connection with her.

The money “showed up” as Spirit promised to hire Lisa. I mysteriously found $2300 in my bank account and I had no idea how it got there. I received an award of $500 at work in my pay check, that I was not suppose to receive.  

I created an “Intention Book” with all of my intentions and dreams and prayed with it daily.

  • To complete and publish my book by 2007                          DONE
  • Be an Inspirational speaker and win a speech contest     DONE
  • To meet my soulmate and get married                                 DONE

I am amazed as to where I am today because I said YES to God and kept “showing up.” With the grace of God, I have had many wonderful, fulfilling experiences and still do because I faced my fear and was transformed into the woman I am today.

Here are some highlights of the last 13 years of writing and publishing my book.

  • I led a women’s retreat in Bermuda for, with all expenses paid.
  • I led a personal retreat for 6 women on a cruise ship to Bermuda.
  • I was selected to be a speaker on the Holistic Norwegian cruise line in 2012.
  • I had a radio show called “Finding the God of your own understanding.”
  • I led workshops and retreats for women.
  • I moved to Maui and lived on the ocean for $300 a month for 6 months.
  • I currently live in a million- dollar home overlooking the ocean.
  • I was on staff as a spiritual coach in the Sacred Feminine Mystery School.
  • I met my soulmate, Larry, and we were married almost 3 years ago.

These are the affirmations that I wrote 10 years ago about meeting my soulmate.

  • I love spending time with my soulmate and enjoying our delicious, passionate, playful and romantic relationship
  • I am enjoying the sacred, holy space that my soulmate and I have created in our home together.
  • I am totally fulfilled and excited about my divine relationship with my soulmate, who is spiritual, healthy, and in love with the adventure of life and out journey together.
  • I am overflowing with joy and happiness that my soulmate and I have found each other, are happily married and adore and love one another.

I continue to “show up” and say YES. I don’t know what’s next and that’s fine with me. I live in the moment and trust divine timing and order.

I was Blown Away

I received an email from, Lisa Tener, my book coach and friend, with a podcast of a radio show she was interviewed on with another book coach, Patrick Snow, from Maui. It was called “Leadership at All Levels” and the host was Gail Alofsin,

Lisa wrote, “Gail mentioned you early in the show that I was channeling Pat Hastings. I shared the title of your book, “Simply a Women of Faith” and that I was also your book coach. Gail mentioned you again later in the interview. It was almost as if you were there with us, as they shared connection among the 3 of us and also as an inspiration for some of the points we made.

After I listened to the show I thought, “I’ll contact Gail and ask if I could be a guest on her radio show when I come to Rhode Island in July, but then quickly got busy and forgot about it. Gail is a friend of mine and a professor at the University of Rhode Island. I was a guest speaker in her communication and marketing classes.

I listen to a meditation on my phone that I downloaded from Dr. Joe Dispenza before I go to bed every night. When I started the meditation, Gail’s radio show with Lisa and Patrick popped up. I thought, “How the heck did that happen?” That email and podcast were sent to me over 3 weeks ago and still in my inbox.

I couldn’t get Gail’s radio show to stop playing and had to shut my phone off. I then listened to my meditation and fell asleep. When I woke up in the morning, I remembered the experience with the radio show. It felt like Spirit was trying to get my attention and I sent Gail an email asking if I could be a guest on her show.

Gail responded and said, “I would LOVE to have you on the July show. Spirit always leads and guides when I listen to my intuition and follow through.

I then remembered what happened after my presentation in Gail’s communication class 12 years ago. Gail sent me 80 typed letters from her students about what they learned from my presentation. I WAS BLOWN AWAY! I couldn’t stop crying and had to read only a few at a time. It touched my heart so deeply that I kept them and brought them to Maui with me. What a gift it was to read them again. I AM STILL BLOWN AWAY by their loving comments. Here are some high lights:

“I was skeptical at first, but immediately after you began speaking, I became hooked.” Zack

“I was captivated by all of your stories. The “Blouse story” is one that completely blew my mind and had me on the edge of the seat. I was awe struck.” David

“You had an amazing upbeat vibe, which spread throughout the room like wildfire and to say it was contagious would be an understatement.” Jason

“As soon as you walked into the room, you could feel your vibrant personality. Your stories were jaw dropping and were incredibly moving.” Madison

“Your talk was incredibly moving and engaging. It literally gave me the chills when you shared how you received money in the mailbox.” Brittany

 “Your stories left me with goose bumps. I’ve never been able to hear first hand stories about a woman who has so much faith and inner spirituality.” Whitney

“I connected with your overall positive energy and it created an inner change in me.” Laura

 “You speak with such passion and spread enthusiasm and motivation. Your stories were both shocking and very inspirational.” Michelle

“I can honestly say your book is unlike anything I have ever read. It has opened my eyes to a new way of thinking and I know my life has been changed for the better.” Chelsey

This is truly a gift that I received all these letters that I will treasure in my heart forever. I had no idea how my story was going to touch and change lives. If I ever doubt myself or the presence of Spirit in my life, I will remember what these students said. The world needs us to continue to shine our lights. We never know how we are going to touch people’s lives, do we?

Money comes to me easily and effortlessly

I met with my friend for lunch this week and we jumped right into conversation. She said, Pat, “I’m almost embarrassed to share how quickly I am manifesting in my life. My daughter and her family want to visit Maui for a 2- week vacation and we figured it would cost about 6 or 7 thousand dollars. We said, let’s put it out to the Universe and see what happens. Within a day, I received an email from my sister stating we had just sold something from the estate. To my delight, the amount of money I received will cover the cost of the vacation and more.”

I said, “I know what you mean, it’s happening to me too.” When we are aligned with Spirit and our hearts are open, miracles happen and we manifest, sometimes instantaneously.

Just that morning as I was listening to a podcast with Dr. Joe Dispenza, I picked an affirmation card that read, “Dare to be in love with life.” As I put the card down, I heard Dr. Joe say, “I dare you to be in love with life.” Yes, that is my intention- to be in love with life and to live my life to the fullest.

Shortly after that, I decided to bake some muffins and needed to chop the walnuts for the recipe. I have a great little chopper that I store on the bottom shelf of the cabinet.  While I was getting it out and moving things around, I noticed that I had another chopper way in the back of the cabinet that I didn’t even know was there. I thought, “Good to know in case I need it someday.”  

I chopped up the first batch of walnuts and the chopper worked just fine. When I tried to chop the second batch of walnuts, the chopper was DEAD. I have no idea what happened to it and I had to throw it away. I was so grateful that Spirit had showed me that I had another one to use. Source knows what we need, even before we need it.

Larry and I love to go to one of our favorite restaurants on Maui for lunch, called the Kula Bistro. We go there every 3-4 months and always get the same thing. The Chicken Parmesan is to die for. Larry always pays the bill. I decided to surprise him and so when the bill came, I said, “It’s my treat.” The bill came to $50 with the tip. Of course, he appreciated and was grateful for my generosity.

I received an email from my son, Tim, that night saying he saw a post on Facebook that there was unclaimed property money in Rhode Island. He checked it out and several of my family members were on the list. I was awarded $50. That was exactly what I paid for the lunch. I have an affirmation that I say daily, “Money comes to me easily and effortlessly.” If I can attract $50, why not $50,000 or $500,000. I affirm that I am open and worthy to receive what is mine for my highest good.

Saturday is my play day to go “Yard sailing” and visit my favorite consignment shop, The Rainbow Attic. It’s so much fun to meet new people and see how I am provided for when I pray and ask for what I need. My prayer is always ONLY WHAT I NEED before I get out of the car to go shopping.

Believe it or not, it gets chilly in the winter months before the sun comes up on Maui. I wanted to find a small space heater for the bedroom to take the chill out of the room when I get up.

I stopped at The Rainbow Attic and didn’t see a space heater as I walked around the shop. I thought about asking the clerk if they had one, but decided not to. A couple of minutes later, I turned around and looked down and lo and behold there was a space heater right in front of me. We plugged it in and it worked perfectly.

Thank you, God, for how you provide for me when I trust in you and believe. I know that I am always being taken care of in every area of my life and so are you.
