The New Normal

January 18, 2018

What is the new normal? We hear this term a lot on the news lately. With raging fires out on the West Coast, mud slides, category 5 hurricanes decimating Puerto Rico and other parts of the world and other climate changes, it seems like this new normal is rather bleak. And now we have missile alerts  frightening us into believing we are goners? How are these horrific things impacting how we live?  What is normal anyway?  Do we really just accept this as the new normal?

It seems like everything has become distorted, upside down or backwards. This new normal that we are being confronted with is all about living in a more fear based world. That is not what I would want the new normal to be. Let’s face it, everything changes. Nothing stays the same. Change is the one constant we can count on. However I envision a world that is evolving toward good change, positive change and progress change. We are either constructing or destructing. If we believe that we are helpless and have no power over our thoughts, feelings and action, we will be the victim of these fear based changes. There are many people doing tremendous work toward good things to improve our world. When we stay in faith and have the courage to be the change we want to see in the world we can begin to see the new normal as moving toward peace, compassion, kindness and love.

That diversity can be recognized as a powerful asset rather than a separation to divide. Let’s open our minds and hearts to all. Let’s be the change we want to see in the world.

How do you see yourself being a contributor to the new normal? What can you do to make a positive difference?

If you need some help to find out what your purpose and vision is, lets talk?

HELP I’m Having a PANIC ATTACK!!!!!!!

October 13, 2015

panic attackDo you get overwhelmed by all the people, places and things in your life? Many people are relying more and more on medication, alcohol, and illegal substances  to calm their nerves and ease their mind. However, all of these external things are a quick fix to the problem and bandage to the real cause of what’s really going on. A Panic attack, is a feeling in your mind and body that overtakes your ability to function in a healthy way. It is as if your mind is being taking over by bandits. There’s mutiny in your mind, and you are wrestling with the enemy;yourself. The chatter, confusion, and sheer panic that is expressed in your body can feel like every nerve is on fire. So, how do you stop the madness? You must first understand that your conscious and subconscious mind are at odds. Next, you have to become aware of the negative emotions that have been stored in your subconscious mind and release them through practice, meditation, and techniques to calm and center the mind. There is help. In today’s busy world, you can find the peace within to withstand any storm that might be ragging outside of you. Once you find this stillness, this center of pure consciousness, you will transmute panic into faith and courage. It is possible and you can change your thoughts, feelings, and actions to live a peaceful life.


Turn! Turn! Turn!

seasonsTo everything-turn, turn, turn

There is a season- turn, turn, turn

And a time to every purpose under the heaven

A time to be born, a time to die

A time to plant, a time to reap

A time to kill, a time to heal

A time to laugh, a time to weep

To everything- turn, turn, turn

There is a season- turn, turn, turn, turn

And a time to every purpose under heaven

A time to build up, a time to break down

A time to dance, a time to mourn

A time to cast away stones

A time to gather stones together

To everything- turn, turn, turn

There is a season- turn, turn, turn

And a time to every purpose under the heaven

A time of love, a time of hate

A time of war, a time of peace

A time you may embrace

A time to refrain from embracing

To everything- turn, turn, turn

There is a season- turn, turn, turn

And a time to every purpose under the heaven

A time to gain, a time to lose

A time to rend, a time to sew

A time for love, a time for hate

A time for peace, I swear it’s not to late!

The Byrds

I too swear, it’s not to late, it is time!

 


Let There Be Peace

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!
