We don’t know our next breath

Posted Posted by admin in Blog (Weekly), Blogs     Comments No comments

Even though Shalandra lived at the end of my street and I could see her house from my lanai, I didn’t know her very well. I had been to her house for a meeting many years ago and remembered her light and beautiful smile. She was a few years older than me and our birthdays were a few days apart.  We always sent birthday greetings to one another on Facebook. When I broke my shoulder 8 weeks ago, we were in contact to discuss a Reiki session with her.

What a shock to me and the community that loved her to hear the news that she transitioned to the light 2 weeks ago. She lived alone and died suddenly of unknown causes. As far as I knew she was healthy and doing her work in the world. I kept thinking about her and couldn’t get her out of my mind all week.

We really don’t know if we will have our next breath or when our train is coming in, do we?  Could the invitation be to live today as if it were our last day? We are not promised tomorrow. All I have is today; to live my life to the fullest, to the best of my ability and to LOVE BIG.

If you knew it was your last day to live, what would you do differently? I know I would want to be with my loved ones and make sure they knew how much I loved and appreciated them. I would tell them how grateful I was for their love throughout my life. I would tell them how proud I was of them. We would laugh and remember the good times we had together. I would encourage them to love and live their dreams. I would assure them that I would always be with them.

I was sitting outside on my lanai during my prayer and meditation on Saturday when I noticed an estate sale sign going up on the corner of my street. I knew it was Shalandra’s house and I felt compelled to go to it. I haven’t been to a yard sale in 5 months due to COVID. I put on my mask and off I went to the estate sale.

It was kind of an “eerie” feeling seeing EVERYTHING she owned being sold at an estate sale; furniture, books, clothes, towels, sheets, dishes, etc.  I prayed and asked Spirit to lead me to what Shalandra wanted me to have of hers. There were beautiful clothes displayed on hangers. I spotted the blue, green, and purple shirt almost immediately as they were my colors. I knew I had to have it. I also bought a rug for in front of our sink, a skillet for making pancakes and a book called “Lessons in Love.” I couldn’t wait to read it. There were many beautiful messages about Love and I know the book FOUND me.

The next day, while I was having coffee with my friend, Kat, I shared with her  Shalandra’s death and the estate sale. I was wearing my new shirt and Kat asked, “May I take a picture of you with your new shirt?”

I was really surprised when I became quite emotional talking about Shalandra, especially since I didn’t know her well.  What did it mean, if anything? Was she trying to communicate with me in some way? Somehow, wearing her shirt, I felt close to her and wrapped in her love and light. I felt like she was saying to me, “Keep shining your light for the world needs your light. I will help you.”

Her form is no longer with us on this earth, but her spirit was still alive. I have heard that light workers are leaving the planet so they can help us on the other side and that the veil is very thin now.

Yesterday, I noticed the rug I bought had lots of circles in it and so did my shirt. Was this a coincidence or a message?  I was led to google circles.

The circle is a universal symbol with extensive meaning. A circle has no beginning and no end. In this sense, a circle represents eternity.

Spiritually, the circle represents a supernatural motion that keeps things moving continuously. A circle represents the Divine that keeps everything moving through spiritual law and order. A circle represents our own individual spiritual force that keeps us evolving. A circle represents the Divine life-force or Spirit that keeps our reality in motion. It is symbolic of vitality, wholeness, completion, and perfection.  

We are all ONE and connected and part of the Divine life force. Let us walk this spiritual journey together loving and supporting one another.
