Words of Encouragement

I learned something new today and although its something very simple, it opened my eyes and gave me some food for thought. I'm a kind hearted sort of person and always try to do the best I can and I've long realized that a smile or a word of encouragement goes a long way. What I didn't realize is just what the impact really is when it happens to me. I recieved a comment from a total stranger yesterday regarding my blogs and although it was only a few simple words of encouragement, it had almost a profound effect on me.
My first thought was to get in there and start putting my thoughts into words again and by golly, here I am. As you can tell, I haven't written much lately, not really losing interest, just not making the time to do it. I love writing, everything about it is an education and a door opener for me, and since it takes a lot of innner thought, it helps me look inside of my soul.
Since I am on a spiritual journey and I realize that doing good in this world is what is most important, I feel that we have to explore our innner selves and take care of our own spirit, nurture it so to speak, in order to grow and be able to help others on their journeys.
I tend to lose touch with that aspect at times as I am sure we all tend to do. By this person taking a bit of his time and sending me his feedback, his thoughts, and his encouraging words, I find myself getting all fired up again and interested in what I started here.
And of course the thought process sort of snowballs and I realized how deeply important it is for all of us to take those few precious minutes out of our busy lives and do something nice for another human being, because although it's something easy to do, the effects can be amazing.
Something else I learned from this...
To make a difference in this world and to contribute to the saving of our beautiful earth doesn't mean that you have to go out and perform herculean deeds, not at all. It means changing the world around you one baby step at a time. It means teaching others and sharing with others the good things, by example. By doing and being the very best you can be, by taking care of your own spirit so that it will shine for all the world to see. This is something that everyone can do. The rich, the very poor, the educated and those not, we are all in this boat together. Sometimes we need a hand up, sometimes we offer the hand. By giving back, we can save the world.
P.S. See what you started Beau? :)

and once again

Just finished reading the tarot and have discovered once again that I have much to learn. I learned from the reading today that I am at the beginning of a new experience. That is something I have been aware of for some time now and I've been trying to learn what it is. It's as if I have been spinning my wheels lately though and not going anywhere. I have been getting messages lately that before I can continue on, I have something I must let go of. I've racked my brain and done everything I can think of to find out just what it is and today I asked the Angels, my spirit guides and even the aarchangel Michael to help me find out through my tarot reading. It was confirmed yet again that I am at a new beginning but have something that is holding me back. My answer is that I am suppose to be patient, that it will come when it's time and there isn't really anything I need to be doing in order to make it happen faster.
I've been into beadwork for a lot of years, it's one of the ways I can express my creativity. For the last twoor three years I haven't been able to make myself sit down and work with them though and although I can come up with a lot of excuses, I really don't know the answer myself.
I guess that is something else I need to be patient with, if it is meant to be, then it will happen.
Patience is NOT one of my strong suits though, and I feel like I am wasting so much time that could be spent doing something good with my hands. One of my excuses is that everything else in my life has to be in order before I can feel comfortable with the beads. The tarot warned me that there is no such thing as perfection, not at this point in my life anyway, and that I am holding myself back by expecting everything to be orderly and neat.
It's very difficult to give up old habits, that's for sure. In some ways I think I have taken on so many projects that I have a hard time concentrating on even one of them. Even sitting here writing I feel as if I should be doing something constructive. Maybe it's time I realized that nothing in this life is wasted, no action is for nothing. And I am doing just what is needed at this particular time in my life. Something for me to think about anyway.

continuing on...

Well, another few days have gone by and I still haven't gotten a lot done, but that's okay. :)
I've started learning how to read the tarot and am having a wonderful experience with that, although it's much more complicated that I first thought. There is so much to remember and so many different ways to go with it, I feel that I will never tire of using these cards. They seem to get straight to the point, and are so helpful when you have a question or just need some new inspirations. Whatever you do with them, you can't do it wrong, and I like that feature a whole lot. :)
I am learning more and more about myself also as time goes on, like I think I know my purpose in this life, it is one of educating, and also something to do with helping others to heal their spirits. Being one with the hawk is telling me that I am a messenger, I can help others in this way, and all I need to do now is try to realize that what I am hearing is right, and that I do have things that are worthwhile to share with others. This is a good life, and I feel like I might finally be on the right track. I wonder why it has taken so long though! Grrr...:)

First Blog Ever

Just to introduce myself and let you know what I am thinking these days.
I've been searching for a long time for the answer to the questions, "Why am I here?" And "What is my purpose in this life?"
Lately the answers have been coming at me and I am thinking this would be a good way to get my thoughts straight and possibly get some feedback.
I've always known that I have very deep perceptions of how people are feeling. Not sure where it comes from but possibly the upbringing I had got it all started. I may go into that more later, but for now I am testing the water so to speak.
A lot of people lately have been talking like this might be the end of the world because so much is happening in the way of spirituality. More and more people are becoming aware of the spirits that surround us and more and more people are searching for the same answers as I.
I think the most important thing I've learned lately is to trust my instincts, to believe in the lessons I am getting and to let go and let God.
Also, although I am learning a lot, I have to remember that I still am not an expert and I have to watch so I don't push others too hard. Or to try too hard myself to convince them I am right. I have to learn that when they are ready, they will listen and by forcing the knowledge on them, they are only turned away.
That's all for today. Nice to meet you.
