Just Be Nice

July 15, 2020

I love Sunday Mornings. There seems to be this extra amount of peacefulness and serenity on Sunday mornings. Maybe it’s just me, but that’s how I feel. This Sunday, I woke up around 5:30 AM  and felt so calm and tranquil. I was sort of in a lucid dream state, mesmerized by a vibration of love, light and angelic beings. It was so sweet. I have a few rituals I do every morning, like journal, meditate, prayer, stretch, feed the cat, feed the birds outside, water the garden and then make a cup of coffee and read something spiritual. Sundays, I take the time to read longer. I am reading John E. Fetzer and the Quest For the New Age. It is fascinating!

So, then I decided that I was going to take my bike to the supermarket to purchase some garlic, which I needed for a recipe I was preparing for that evenings dinner. I got on my bike and headed to the store which was about a mile and a half away. A little way down on my journey, I saw a young man walking in the opposite direction I was heading, we caught each others attention and greeted each other Good Morning. The weather was simply gorgeous! After another block I noticed I forgot my mask! Oh No! I still haven’t got in the habit of bringing it every where. So, I turned back to go home to get it. That’s when I encountered this young man again. He saw me and I mentioned to him that I forgot my mask and have to go home to get it. He said, no, you don’t have to do that. I have an extra one. He was so nice. He gave me a fresh package, not even open.

He insisted I take it. He was so kind. Then he said here I have this pair of socks, again a package not even opened. I said no thank you, that you are so nice but you should give them to someone else. Again he insisted. He said they were meant for me. He was an Angel, sent at the perfect place and the perfect time. I was so happy and grateful for his presence. BTW, he was a Black Man. Which shouldn’t matter, and doesn’t matter to me. The only reason I am mentioning it is because, if one act of violence can stir so much attention and disruption in our world, One act of kindness, can and should create attention for peace, love and compassion. I just didn’t record this act of kindness to broadcast it on the news and social media. However it needs to go viral! I wanted to give him a big hug, but we both knew that wouldn’t be wise during these times, so we bumped fists. Did I attract this soul by my high vibration I was feeling this morning? Was he really an Angel? Was it a coincidence? I don’t know. All I know is that he was nice and nice speaks volumes. The more you can get into alignment with love, light and compassion, the more kindness will spread. What can you do to share kindness? Just be nice!

With Gratitude,

Monica

 

 


We Are All Connected

April 9, 2020

We are all connected, to each other, biologically. To the earth, chemically. To the rest of the universe anatomically… Not only are we in the universe, the universe is in us.

 

 

This realization is becoming more evident then ever before. Every day I wake up asking for guidance. I ask how may I be of service to humanity? The more time I have to reflect on this understanding the more liberated I feel.  We are social, emotional, energetic and spiritual beings. Knowing that we are connected is the most reassuring part of being human. We all want to be loved….

The more you know yourself the more you will know others. The more you know others the more compassion you will have. During these times of uncertainty ask yourself, what am I afraid of? What are the thoughts and feelings that are coming up for me at this time? I know a few friends who within the last week have transcended. There is sadness and empathy that I am experiencing. It’s a difficult time for so many.

 

How do we rise above and seek comfort during these times? By realizing that we are all connected. That there is a cosmic web that binds everything and everyone together. There is no separation. Every thought we think, to every act we take, is all affecting the whole. The more you can lift your vibration, the higher the frequency you will project  The higher the frequency you project the more connected you will feel.

The more connected you feel, the more love will radiate to and through you. The more love you exude, the more light will prevail. The more light that is emanating on the earth, the less darkness and fear can effect you.

 Breath this in! We are all in this together. 

Blessings & love,

Monica

Happy Holidays

What the world needs now is more kindness, compassion and peace.

Wishing everyone a most joyous, peaceful and loving Holiday.

 

Prayer of St Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.

Amen.

You are only as sick as your secrets. I want to be a part of a conversation that breaks down shame. Life happens. It’s about what you do with it. That’s were the grace lies.

Sean Corn  Yogi & Humanitarian

I was brought up in a time where you kept things within the family. You know, those family secrets. My parents were first generation American, they were both Holocaust survivors.  When they came here after the war, they worked really hard to make a living and raise a family. I can’t even image all the things they went through and witnessed. They had many secrets. They didn’t want to talk about all the horrible things they experienced and I can understand why. However, by them keeping secrets about their life, caused me to continue this cycle which resulted in a lot of shame and guilt that kept me emotionally captive. This is where addiction can hide its ugly self. Until I became aware that the secrets were not protecting me but keeping me a prisoner in my own life did I decide to liberate myself from them.

If you are caught up with the mind-set of what will the neighbors think, or if your afraid to shine, be different, stand out, be real, be authentic, be original, be vulnerable, Just be YOU!  There is goodness in you. You are worthy! You matter! You are amazing! You are loving and you are loved!

Share your beautiful self with others. Remember if you didn’t have a shadow, there would be no light.


Can You Help Me?

September 7, 2017

Let There Be Light! Everything that thrives is fed by light. If you lift up a rock, and there was a seed under it, you will see that it sprouted but it is a colorless and a stunted seedling searching for the light.  Within a few hours of warmth and  filtered light, you will see that it straightened itself and  color began coursing through its veins.

We too need to have the weight of a burden lifted from our shoulders in order to thrive. We need to be in an environment that is encouraging  and supportive to restore health and happiness.

With all that is going on the world today, you can be a beacon of light? How can you be of service?

Blessings,

Monica


Let There Be Peace

July 22, 2014

peace“We are not going to deal with the violence in our communities, our homes and our nations, until we learn to deal with the basic ethic of how we resolve our disputes and to place an emphasis on peace in the way we relate to one another.” Marian Wright Edelman

Peace begins within our own mind, body and spirit. We are really all one, and, all connected. We live on one planet, our earth. Although it may appear that the world is out of balance, and in turmoil, there is an incredible influx of light and love being illuminated within us. All you need to do is open your heart to receive it. Now is the time to understand that we can resolve our differences, and unite again as one. Let us all pray for Peace!
