My theory is that the Answers are always there..inside..I just need to be Aware enough to See them…
I have an interview on hold with someone whom I respect greatly. I decided I would bring an open mind to my “Cove of Answers” and there I would construct the interview that I have been blocked about..My son lent me his camera because I wanted to take photos to share with you the beauty of my backyard…My friend who is an amazingly talented guitarist lent me his IPOD, which delights me because almost every song has a guitar riff that touches my soul…when I allow it to…I *love* guitar riffs, so this IPOD is a special treat….
(An aside…I have a “dream book” of material/thoughts/ideas that I present to the Universe. Well, music is my life, and on this list is an IPOD..so I smile inside thinking ha! I wasn’t specific enough in my asking..but for these moments I “have” an IPOD…*grin*).
So, with focus, and the sun shining, I go to climb into my kayak for what I think shall be an easy journey…and there is a crab…a little guy…but still, a crab inside of my kayak…I don’t particularly love crabs inside of my kayak, so I freak out a bit, as in squeals, a bit of jumping around on the dock..my son checks on me, the guys washing the boat across the way check on me..they all ask do I need help? Um, no thank you :)….I briefly thought well I shall give the little guy his space and not kayak today..but I had a “mission”…so I gathered up my courage, made sure the kayak was critter free and began my little trip.
This harbor that I love is so beauty filled…my heart quickly filled with Joy, Love, Peace, Magnificence…I’m not used to music in my ear while I row, so I appreciated each song as it played…I felt so very much in love with my world…with my place in the world..praise just overflowed, and I truly think I may have been smiling ear to ear.
The view on my right as I journey toward my cove…
I took some photos. I rounded the corner to my “Cove of Answers” this special spot that I love so much. This spot where I Listen, when I sit and meditate, where I allow my heart to open to brilliance…
This wasn’t about an interview at all. As I let all that was delighting my senses soak in fully, I asked what do I do about my wise friend? “Open your heart”. Nah, I don’t like that answer, is there a way we may change my friend? “Open your heart”. But..but..but..strongly now: “Open your heart.”….okay new question then…what shall I do about a situation my daughter is facing? “Open your heart.” But there are so many unknowns, and I’m at a loss here…”Open your heart.” I think you are not hearing me…”I hear you. Open your heart.” Okay, okay, okay here is a good one…What shall I do about this situation at work? “Open your heart.”..hey you didn’t let me finish..”You already Know. Open your heart.”…I get it. I get it. “Open my heart…to All…in every situation…the Answer is the same…”Open my heart.”
I sat in the sun for a few minutes. Basking in brilliant Light. Then began my journey home. As I turned the corner out of the cove, I thought about how I woke with Love even though my external circumstances aren’t “lovely”…and how is that possible? What have I done differently? And here is the thing..yesterday I defrosted my little refrigerator because my freezer (big enough to fit one waffle package that is it) had an ice block around it that took up most of the refrigerator. Last night before bed I thought how exciting, now that the frig is fresh and clean I may fill it with fresh, delicious foods. It is *my choice* on how to fill this clean empty space…
That is it…in the past few weeks something icy that I hadn’t been aware of has been released from around my heart…whatever guard I had has been slowly melted and now I feel such Love…it is *my choice* on how to fill this clean empty space…
The Answer is: “Open Your Heart”…and then “make the choice” on how to fill the newly opened empty spaces…
View on my way home..
This story has a most unexpected, lovely ending…remember I was pondering an interview..I had sent a few questions to Simon Hay, a healer whom most of you are familiar with by now. We know of Simon’s ‘work’ but I was wondering a bit about his personal side..his Energy is amazing, his Heart is genuine and gracious, but what makes him tick..what is he like inside??? When I returned home, Simon had answered my questions..no interview needed because his Answers capture the very essence I was looking for…
See..”Open Your Heart” indeed…now a few words from Simon Hay…a healer, medium, and writer. While in a trance-like state spirit has used Simon to write about the lives of Jesus and His family. You may visit Simon’s blog at Simon Hay Soul Healer.
Joy sent me an email a few weeks ago and asked me a couple of questions. I thought I’d share the answers with everyone.
What makes your heart sing?
Joy was also curious about how I coped being open emotionally and energetically in my healing work and wondered if I was gregarious or reserved in private. I’m complex, and knowing that makes my heart sing. I love home, family, friends, spirit, being outdoors, and my work. Touching my children makes my heart purr, and being connected to everything makes me peaceful. ‘Open’, is how we’re supposed to live.
In a crowd I’m the quiet observer. Too many conversations are meaningless and no one’s really paying attention. I like watching people; body language intrigues me. I’m happy being quiet. I like listening. I enjoy eye contact, hugs, and studying all the different body shapes. I listen. I’ve been described as a girl’s best friend and a bastard. I’m the guy without an in between, and that makes my heart sing—I’m unique.
Conversations with spirit don’t overwhelm me, but they sometimes make it appear as if I’m not paying attention. I’ve a friend who see’s spirit clearly, and she says it difficult to look at me directly. My face constantly changes as spirits trance with me. I’m usually unaware that it’s happening. My friend tells me I look like Jesus more than I look like Simon, but I’m sure that’s because our conversations are about healing.
People assume that I know everything. I don’t. I know myself, and that makes my heart sing.
How do you replenish your energy, especially when someone borrows your energy in an unscheduled manner?
This is an area of energy healing that’s misunderstood. If I heal all day I’m just as tired as I would be if I’d worked in an office. My body can ache as if I’ve worked physically, and this is because my energy field is experiencing the compressed series of events I’m healing. If I’m seeing violence, it manifests in my body. The most healings I’ve done in a week was forty seven, and I was fine.
At times the emotion is overwhelming, and if I’m working away, I cry during the drive home. I can be hard to live with for a day, and I imagine it’s the same feeling as jet-lag. If what you’re doing in life makes you happy fatigue is a natural occurrence and not a problem. Rest, eat well, exercise, make love, be creative, and play outdoors.
If you want healing from me, ask and you’ll get it. My hands and body glow constantly, and the gas tank is always full.
Do you know what we all need to feel alive? Love.
