Like the rest of the world, things are slowly “opening up” on Maui and for this I am grateful. We followed protocol and kept healthy and safe (and will continue to do so.) It is my daily practice to send love, light and prayers to the whole world and to all who are suffering from COVID19.
I also reached out to friends who were alone and needed support. I practiced gratitude and focused on the positive and what I have in my life. I was present to myself and gave myself what I needed in each moment. I trusted and let go of what no longer served me. I surrendered to “what is” and strived to live in the present moment.
I can ACCEPT what’s happening in the world and have peace or I can RESIST and suffer. My choice. Acceptance is where the POWER lies. I KNOW that the world will be a better place because of this PAUSE that was needed and necessary to bring the world back into balance and LOVE. I believe it is the “Great Awakening” and all a part of God’s plan to wake up the world. It is what we have been waiting for. We have been “shaken up to waken up.”
Someone asked me, “How are you surviving during the COVID19?” I smiled and answered, “I’m thriving.” Ego says: Once everything falls into place, I will find peace. Spirit says: Find peace and everything falls into place. For many years, my intention and prayer has been to be peaceful.
There have been many wonderful changes in my life that I’m grateful for: deepened relationships with my children, saying yes to writing a book with Larry, Eating healthier, more trust and peace in my life.
One of the biggest changes I’ve made is that I walk 5 miles every day on the beach. I don’t know why, but before COVID19, I hardly ever walked on the beach. I’m up and out at 6 a.m. in the morning, which is truly a miracle because I loved my “quiet” mornings before starting the day. I walk for 2 hours and listen to powerful manifestation meditations. My heart is full of gratitude and appreciation for what I have co-created with Spirit in my life.
I LOVE walking the beach and greeting people with a smile and a good morning. It’s the same people walking that early in the morning so we greet each other by name. I have made new friends and connected deeply with interesting and spiritual souls, like myself. When I return to my car after my walk each day, I find a flower that one of my new friends leaves me.
I noticed a woman walking on the beach and was attracted to her peaceful presence, bright light and energy. We always smiled and greeted one another when we passed each other. I saw her approaching me one day this week and decided to introduce myself to her and tell her, “I see your bright light and energy.” She thanked me and became tearful that I recognized her light shining from her eyes. She saw my light too, which felt really good to be SEEN. We had a powerful connection and a “knowing” of two souls recognizing one another. We both felt like it was divinely orchestrated and guided.
She invited me over to her home a few days later as we both wanted to share our stories and our lives. There were so many synchronicities and life experiences that we shared. Like myself, she is a woman of faith and was thrilled when I gave her my book, Simply a Woman of Faith. I look forward to seeing what God has planned for us as I know there are no accidents.
I received a message the next day from my new friend that read, “Your story inspired me so much and I’m so grateful our paths have crossed. I’m so blessed that you have been guided to walk in companionship and inspiration with me. I’m humbled with gratitude. Know that you are loved, valued, appreciated and SEEN.”
I know that what I see in others, is also in me. I saw my friend’s peaceful presence, bright light and energy. I am claiming that for myself.
As the veil is being lifted, we are invited to see the truth of who we are. We are not separate from Source or one another. We came from Source and we are all connected. We are LOVE. We are all ONE and we are whole. We are not victims of our circumstances; we are the creators of our lives. The virus that seemed to separate us in the physical realm is bringing us together in the heart realm.
Here is what I’m practicing to grow my “spiritual muscles” in the bootcamp.
- Focusing on the positive; deeper connections with family and friends
- Being loving, patient and compassionate to myself and others
- Allowing myself to feel all of my feelings – like clouds floating in the sky
- Going within & not “zooming out” on food, social media, internet, busyness
- Forgiving myself and others
- Appreciating all the gifts I have been given and staying in gratitude
- Communicating and negotiating with Larry especially when stressed
- Asking for what I need
- Reaching out to friends who are alone and need support
