Monday Blessing: My House…

In my life, it is my pleasure to have an open door policy..

If you want to come over, please…come join me…I live in paradise, in a peace filled amazing heaven on earth..

You don’t need to be ‘happy’ to join me..but I choose to invest my Energy in peace filled so I ask that you be peace filled regardless of what external circumstances are in your life..

My heart is most full when I am in the midst of a group of people I have gathered together by the pool or on the boat, at the beach or at a park…sharing food, laughter, fun, music, games, stories…

My blog is now highly reflective of my has the same amazing magical Energy…golden pure and true…and the people who visit are peace filled indeed..all with unique backgrounds, interests, stories, talents..yet full of laughter and fun…

Thank you for visiting!  I appreciate all that is shared changing for me..

So, today my dear friend Megan is here…Megan reflects to me the best of who I am…My heart fills with gratitude for all that she shares with me..for who she is: her beauty, her smile, her joy, her faith, her wisdom, her laughter..With Megan, time flies as my heart soars…we speak of hopes, dreams, and yes sometimes fears but always, always there is laughter..the most ease filled joy filled friendship…Which helps me to raise my vibrations and then all kinds of amazing people pop into my life..or as Megan would say I manifest all kinds of amazing people…however it works, *it truly works*! 

I will share here that in the last moments of thirty-nine right before I fell asleep, I knew the next day wouldn’t be anything like I thought it would, but if I kept my heart open the day wouldn’t be disappointing at all–nope, just the opposite…if I kept my heart open the day would be far more magnificent than I could imagine..So, I kept my heart open because that’s what I do *grin*..and I allowed myself to be surprised..

When I ask for Love..I receive Love in abundance..if I ask for specific Love I am limiting the Universe power…I am surrounded by Love in various forms…I asked to be shown Love and Beauty in the day…Here are some photos from my first day of forty:

Beauty filled morning..I am so blessed and my heart overflows with gratitude for being placed exactly here….


My favorite view by my gate..early am..

From my can see the hills in the backyard..

I chose to go back to the Gentle Barn..the rescue farm I visited previously…I heard the wind whisper Answers, felt the 100t degree heat on my skin, loved on each animal, felt Spirit Alive and strong…I reconnected with Yoda (the emu), I lay on Buddha (a 1000 lb. cow), and fell in love with Magic (the horse–pet her for so long)..quite literally:

Even though until this day I truly believed I wanted chocolate cake…I chose to have chocolate ice cream..enjoying every bite…

And was greeted with the sun glistening off the water on my return home…a day full of Love and Beauty indeed…

I chose to open my heart to the day as it was presented to me..a day of wonder and delight…

And Megan, my precious friend..I didn’t ask specifically for Megan, or any of you who have become friends..what I asked for was to open my heart to a community of people who are like minded in beliefs, peace filled, creative, passionate, and what I got..mmm what I got… is far more precious than what I asked for..this community right here…that fills my heart with joy, challenges me, inspires me, encourages me, supports me. allows me to stretch in many ways…*Thank You*..thank you for coming to my are always welcome:)

Megan’s words are for each and every one of us…because each day is a birthday..a chance to wake happy to greet the day, to treat our self gently and kindly, to share our best with others, to praise for what is good, to choose to allow our hearts to remain open to what is being presented, to choose to Love fully and graciously, to choose to invest in positive and deflect drama and negativity…I do believe that just as one chooses to put aside regular life to celebrate a milestone, one may choose to make every day a milestone day…it is a choice…and  I choose to self and you, my world in this realm and every realm…It is my heartfelt wish that you choose to join me..

If you are available this Wednesday, please come back and visit this space because I will be sharing with you my photos and journey to my “Cove of Answers”…

Much peace,


Happy Birthday, Joy!

Forty years ago, you began your journey of unparalleled and uncompromising manifestation. You willed yourself into this lifetime, having carefully chosen in advance the people, places and things that would have the most profound impact on your soul’s progression.

 You chose your parents, your siblings, your friends and lovers, and even your children. What’s more, we all chose you, too.

 We knew, as infinitely wise spirits on The Other Side, that your unique journey in this realm during this particular incarnation would benefit mankind like never before, and we wanted to be part of it.

We could sense your unwavering desire to heal the planet, to inspire those around you through thoughts, words and actions, and to nurture – in both seen and unseen ways – the heart of man.

You are love personified, my beautiful friend. You are eternally generous, honest, sincere, compassionate, humorous, intelligent, steady, patient and kind. You have a way about you that makes hearts dance when you laugh, and the sun shine when you smile.

You are a child of the earth, water and sky. Through you, all things are possible. In you, the Universe lives. Because of you, there is more light than there has ever been on this planet, and I, for one, am grateful. < * bow * >

My birthday blessing for you, and for everyone reading these words today, is this:

May your journey be happy and full of meaning.

May your steps each day be light and easy.

May the love, beauty, peace and understanding that fill you also surround you for eternity.

May you always have more than enough of the things you want, and the things you need.

Most importantly, may you always know how very dearly you are cherished and loved.

With tremendous love, respect and admiration,

    This delightful post reminds human beings that as they ask for something, they can also realize it is already given. As awakening unfolds, then confidence grows and beings realize that they are love in is infinite forms. You may witness love working though you at the same moment as you feel the truth inside that neer leaves.

      Thank you!
      As I embrace my Truth, Love expands and morphs and colors All around me..Love is all around me..Love Is…
      All is currently in my life, I just need to allow for it to unfold naturally…Beautiful, indeed:)

    Joy! You look so beautiful in those pictures — and I see you in not only human form, but also in the sunrise, the animals, and the sun glistening on the water. Being friends with you – reconnecting in this lifetime and in this way – has been one of the best gifts I could imagine. You make life sweeter!

    May all the greatest joys you experienced in the past year be multiplied by 40 this year!

    Loving you lots & wishing you a perfect birthday week!

    PS – Choosing chocolate ice cream over chocolate cake was, perhaps, the most magical thing you could have done. Like love, no matter what form it takes, it’s always chocolate — and chocolate is GOOOOOOOOOOD!

    • #9 by unfoldingyourpathtojoy on July 20, 2010 - 2:43 am

      Sometimes magical isn’t apparent until I’ve chosen..then an abundance of butterflies and glitter appear…Chocolate is good indeed….whatever form it is in..
      Thank you for your kind words..what a world we live in:)

    Happy birthday, Joy. Actually, happy everyday. 🙂

    I agree with Megan. Chocolate ROCKS! And the darker the better! 😛

    Your face is radiant in those photos. One might get the sneaking suspicion that you actually enjoyed yourself, eh? And those images of the sea and boats where you live are stunning. You really do live in paradise! 😉

    Joy, I think you wear your years lightly and with grace. Shine on. 🙂

      Hi Tony,
      Happy Every Day to you too!!!
      Chocolate so rocks..pretty much in any form…
      One might decide I had the most peace filled, beauty filled day..continuiing my Love Affair with the world…I look at the photos of my harbor and feel they accurately portray the beauty I choose to see in the morning, and choose to see on my way home…And the Energy from the animals was so beautiful, so pure…

    Hi Joy

    Oh my goodness this was all so beautiful!!!!

    First off Joy, I love the photos you shared and your thoughts and reflections that followed. I loved how you explained your house and your blog. We all I believe have mirrors or reflections in our life of our inner state, and yours is so beautiful!

    Joy the animal farm brought such a warm feeling to my heart. I love, love, love animals, especially from the sense of seeing them live out their own lives and manifestations in peace. We can mirror peace for them and they for us. It is a sacred relationship that I believe many are beginning to wake up to more and more today. As our compassion grows with our consciousness expansion, we shower all beings on this planet with more love, kindness and respect.

    And Megan and her words were such a precious addition to all this!

    I sense that you had the birthday that you truly deserved for the amazing being that you are – full of love, laughter and good friends and family, even the furry family too 😉

    Much love to you always Joy, as you embark on a new chapter in your life, enjoy all the adventures and beauty it brings! (But never let the number rule who you are or what you can do 😉

    • #21 by unfoldingyourpathtojoy on July 21, 2010 - 12:23 am

      Hi Evita,
      Thank you! Beauty filled indeed…I have open my heart to the Beauty around me…
      My inner state used to be one of chaos..I find as I clean and simplify there is more room for Beauty, Joy, Love, so I make sure to clean and simplify…
      This farm is full of rescued animals..all severely abused..with such Amazing Energy, gentle Spirit..I spent time with each..and shared so much that I cannot put into words..I am looking into volunteering there..
      I agree..Megan *is* precious…
      May we all experience such Beauty, Joy, Love..each and every day…
      And numbers are of Spirit isn’t defined by numbers only Life…
