Imagine Stone by Fran Hafey-Mystiblu

Imagine Stone by Fran Hafey-Mystiblu

Balance. Some people cringe at the word, but regardless, it’s a real feat for some of us to find and keep balance in our lives.

Balance has been on my mind recently because with winter changing to spring, there are so many changes coming on pretty fast. I also had do downshift from higher gear to a lower gear to achieve some healing. I had a dental procedure and due to a previous injury, there was a lot of swelling and infection, plus my dentist felt some was due to an allergic reaction. We had no idea what I reacted to, but nonetheless it was painful and took me out of commission for a little over a week!

When something like this happens, when we experience shifts and changes in our lives; which is pretty much all the time, we learn and find ways that help us. When we go from one season to another, deal with illness, move to a new home, change careers, are having difficulty with a number of issues, then, we are in constant search for balance. Perhaps it’s our heart and soul that seeks balance, but our minds need it even more! When not feeling balanced, so many things can affect us in a more negative way, instead of feeling the flow of positive energy that comes when we’ve found the way to have balance with less effort; once it comes more easily for us. I’ve learned how to do this in so many ways that help the balance flow easier and easier for me.

I am often reminded of pain in my body, but with meditation, creating balance, peace and sacred space in my life and surroundings, I find it easier to deal with the physical pain, problems and issues that occur. Our minds can be tuned into thinking positive thoughts to help us everyday. I feel much better when I stay positive and upbeat. I know we will not always feel that way, but we can learn how to do this so the good energy flows easier and more constant in our lives.

Some ways to do this are by taking time out, everyday, to sit and do nothing. Turn off all the clatter going on in your mind, stop the noise. In the beginning, you may be able to do this for only a short time, but with practice and patience the time will grow longer. Sit quietly in a place you enjoy or find comforting. I love to sit outside on our front deck swing or on a moss covered spot at the roots of a tree in the woods or perhaps a window seat or spot indoors where it’s quiet. Look around, take in your surroundings, breathe. You can close your eyes if you like. Slow down your thinking process, leave it at your feet or at the doorway, you can pick it up again later on. If it helps, think of one word. I like to use “peace” or “love” or “breathe.” This helps you to slow down the noise in your head and center on just one thing. I release the tension in my body, let go of holding on and holding in life’s daily thoughts, that can rob us of peace. If you cannot do this everyday, try doing it when you can, but I urge you to try to set aside some “you time” everyday if possible. The balance and peace that follows is worth every minute of it.

Balance is about filling your life with more than just problems and drama. We will have those things in our life, so taking time to create peaceful moments, happiness, sacred space and be mindful of what robs us of these positive things is very important. By doing things I love, that feel good and lifting myself up above negative thinking, I have found balance in my life. When physical pain tries to bring me down, I remember to do what feels right and listen to my body. When others around me try to tell me my way of life is wrong, I remember my heart and what stirs my soul. I spend time in the garden, grow some of our food and herbs, laugh often, spend time doing what I love, walk in nature, surround myself with people filled with love, hug my children, my husband, my dogs and talk to my birds and plants. When we find what makes us feel good and happy and not allow negative energy to steal away these things from us; then we have found balance and it’s easier to maintain balance when we know the difference in positive and negative and how they affect us.

Take time to find out what’s in your life that helps you create balance or what seems to cause you to feel unbalanced. When we identify these things, it helps us to give and take and make positive changes to find and keep the positive balance we need. What’s not working or is taking too much energy or time; let it go, begin to make changes. When it feels good and creates peace and happiness in your life, do whatever you can to keep that great balance!

Blessings and balance~ Fran-Mysti~

Everything in life is interconnected. Each season turns into the next, no matter what we do with our time. We’re drawn to nature and spiritual ideals for a reason. We are part of everything and everything is a part of us. It’s very natural for us to desire natural things.

More and more, we’re waking up and feeling the pull of our soul back to what we know. Have you ever felt like you’ve done something before, been to a place or known someone before, even though you just met them? Some call this deja vu; I call it remembering our soul’s journey. Experiences, places and people, leave imprints of energy.

When we begin to awaken and come to know our true selves, our inner selves, our true heart and soul, we remember. When we meet people and we feel a familiarity with them, often they’re part of our soul family. I believe the term, “Soul Family” refers to more than “blood relatives,” but those we were very close to, had lifetimes with, were involved with and were best of friends; those we have a spiritual/soul connection with. I have experienced this many times in my life and have come to find, we always meet people for a reason; whether to finish something we started in another life, for deep love or perhaps karmic reasons. It took me a long time to learn that this includes people we may not like or get a long with well too. All people in our lives come and go for a reason or lesson, for us or them perhaps. Again, it’s very natural for us to be drawn to people, places or things as we allow ourselves to open up to who we are and have been forever. Our soul has traveled many journeys and some have just begun to remember.

I can recall when I was a child, having memories that would come to me in visions. I didn’t understand them and had no one in my life to help me to figure out what was happening to me. I also began having dreams about past lives and things that had happened to me. I asked questions, but my family was not open to any of this. They felt it was evil or wrong and told me to stop it. I didn’t dare tell them I talked to spirit guides and angels and also talked to trees and animals! Talking is one thing, but “knowing and hearing” them back, is another!

I’ve learned many lessons in this lifetime and look forward to many more. Not all have been easy, fun or something I chose, but somehow, we do choose many of the experiences we will have in each lifetime. We have a “blueprint” we create before we’re born, things we agree on to happen at certain times to help us learn and grow. I do believe “life blueprints” can be changed slightly, just as any blue print. Even when we have “detours” in our blue prints, they always end up being just what we needed to learn a valuable lesson for life.

As we learn and begin to notice a difference in our lives, we begin to let go of extra baggage and heal from old wounds. We find peace within, even when the world is not always so peaceful. Learning to forgive, to let go; to not always be in control but allow things to flow, is a sign we’ve grown and are becoming wiser. This doesn’t always happen over night, but can take patience and persistence, learning to love ourselves and others in much deeper ways.

Our soul’s journey can take us to fantastic and magical places in different levels of our consciousness and to places we may not have believed possible. I have come to believe anything is possible! Our souls are interestingly complex, with many layers and most have hardly touched the surface, much less, understanding the soul completely. The soul is infinite, traveling and learning forever.~

 

*One of my passions is “Soul Connections” and I’m working on a  new book with that title! I also have a Yahoo group with that name, a webpage and a Facebook page also! I write extensively on this topic, have my own Twinflame experience and also help people who feel “spiritually stuck” or have experienced a soul-mate type meetings with someone special and have questions or need help with clarity. If you would like an online session or email session with me, please contact me. I can also help with other spiritual questions and mentoring.

A Season of Love Message~12-9-11~Life is Wonderful!~

December 9, 2011

A Season of Love Message for Friday:  Today, I want to reflect on how wonderful life is… with you and me in it! Each day is a new opportunity, a gift to each of us, to make a difference in our lives and in the world! In the movie, “It’s a Wonderful Life,” George got a taste of what life would be like if he had never been born. The story took him down a scary road, but showed him how every person is connected and affects our lives, just as we affect others too. He learned a valuable life lesson and was given a second chance! Scrooge, in the movie, “A Christmas Carol,” was also shown, how life could have been different if he’d had a more positive attitude and been giving and loving, instead of greedy and mean. Another, “not so nice” picture for him too, that led him to waking up to new opportunities and chances to create joy and make life better! Every day is an opportunity to create changes and make life better! 

There are so many ways we can make a positive difference in the world today, but it needs to begin now. We only have this moment and we can try and put off until tomorrow, but why not now or today? Take this moment to do something positive that will create a ripple effect in our world. Sit down and write out a list of things you can do now, today, tomorrow and every day for the rest of your life! It’s easy to be more positive, but it can take practice for some. Change that negative thought or action into a positive thought and positive action! When it comes from your heart, then it can begin to flow. You will begin to see and feel a big difference! It all begins within you, to be positive and pass it on each day to create a, “Wonderful Life!” 

Peace & joy, Fran~Mysti~

Hello everyone,

My goodness, the weather’s changing, getting cooler, and I’ve got lots of “cool” things happening too!

I’ve made some changes to my weekly messages I share here and in a few other places.  I was calling them, “Spiritual Pathways,” which is the name I used for years and just recently began using again. When I was pondering making more changes to my Yahoo groups, my blog and other ways I share things, an idea popped into my head and I just knew I was being led to make some bigger changes. I hope I don’t confuse you all too much, but from now on, the messages shared here for the week will be called, A Season of Love,” the same name as my new book! It feels right, so that’s what I’m going to go with. I may still use the Spiritual Pathways LoveNotes here to share now and then too, but I’ll just have to see how that goes.

I will be sharing the messages on Mondays and Fridays, instead of everyday because I have quite a bit on my plate right now and I must find time for other things too. I’m working on more ways to market my new book, while writing more books, writing here and other places also. I have a life offline too, so finding balance is important.

You can receive the “A Season of Love” Messages here by signing up to this blog or by joining the Yahoo group with the same name at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ASeasonOfLove/

These messages are an in between of the stories and messages found in my book and the LoveNotes I’ve shared before. I feel the new, “A Season of Love” messages will lift you up, give you inspiration, motivate you and give you positive fuel for your body, mind, spirit and soul, weekly. We can all use a little help now and then, so I do hope you will sign up to receive them and let them bless you as they bless me!

Thank you for your time and for staying with me for all these years and for those new folks that are just getting to know me. You’re all very important and precious to me. I love hearing from you and staying in touch. I do my best to respond, write back or get in touch with you as I can, not letting much time pass before getting back to you.

As I said, I’m writing quite a bit, marketing my book, “A Season of Love and opening me up to invites to Author lectures, talks, seminars, workshops and book signings.

I also continue my Mentoring, Spiritual Consults and Guidance and my Intuitive Readings through my website and running several groups at various places and sharing on a daily basis at Social Networks. Please feel free to contact me for more information about my book, my schedule, my website, consults, readings and any other things you would like to talk to me about. I am open to the changes and opportunities coming my way, letting go of what’s not working and stepping out and up to fly.~

Stay tuned for my upcoming Autumn Specials!

Hello everyone,

My book,  “A Season of Love, Stories that Help Heal, Grow and Find Peace Within,” is finished and I now have a page for it all its own. On this page, you can read the write up on the book from the Publisher, check my Author Bio, read the forward, some stories in the book and purchase the book in a few different places and ways.  You can also get your “signed” copy sent from me with a free book marker included, but sent with my blessings and good positive energy that you will enjoy the book, receive something good from it and be blessed beyond measure. I hope you will then share what you feel about the book with others or even share the book. (smile) My main incentive is for people to enjoy the book and read the messages and thoughts for each day. I pray they will feel the love, peace and positive energy in the book. Of course I want to sell some books, but the most important thing to me is that what I share will be received and honored as a gift from within.

“A Season of Love,” has been a dream and I was finally able to achieve it! I began writing the stories and articles in the book years ago. I would write them for different places, such as my website, newsletter, my spiritual groups I have at yahoo and other places. They were free so people would enjoy the messages I had to share.  After years of writing, many people said I should put them all into a book. The idea was appealing and I began to think about it.  I enjoyed writing so much and writing had helped heal my soul. I am on a spiritual path, but awakening years ago to the changes I needed to make in my life, writing allowed me to get my experiences out, to share with others. The messages in each story were sometimes Divinely given to me. I would be washing dishes, working in my garden or meditating and suddenly the idea for the next story would come to me. I would take down notes or run to my computer and start putting it down in words. It would flow so well, I was often unaware of what I was really typing, but somehow I become one with the energy in the words being created on the page. Afterwards, I would read what I had typed and was amazed how it all came together. I would check the typos or change how a sentence was structured, but for the most part it all came together as it flowed so well.

I began researching Publishers and how to go about getting the writings and stories into a book. I wanted to learn the next phase of this dream. I asked others that had published, but didn’t get much help. It seemed as if they all felt I should know this, I could find the information myself or they were all too busy. I just wanted to hear others experiences with their book publishing and how to get started in a huge world on the internet of different ways to publish and different companies out there. I wanted my book to look good, feel good and not cost me a small fortune. I began finding out about self publishing and printing on demand, but I was unsure of what to do.

I remember looking, asking questions, joining writers groups and nothing seemed to click. Maybe it just wasn’t the right time. That’s what I would tell myself and believed that one day it would all fall into place. Also, I had the money a couple of times, but each time, something would happen and there was an emergency and the money would have to be used.

I began experiencing pain in my left arm and ended up going through a long ordeal of shots, physical therapy, pain, lack of sleep and losing control of my body. This “streak” lasted five years! I was in and out of the hospital for one thing or another, was put through test after test, you name it, x-rays, sonograms or ultrasounds, stress tests, cat scans, lab tests and MRI’s. The more pain I was in, the worse I became, the more muscle mass I lost and then more pain. A vicious cycle. I fell several times and had a concussion and back fracture. Each time I thought I was beginning to get better, something else would happen. During all of this, I kept holding onto my dream of one day getting my book out there to the world. I somehow continued most of the things I was doing online and barely told people what was going on with my health. I became embarrassed to tell anyone or ask for healing and prayers when things kept happening, one after another. I held on, even as my mind, body and spirit were surely being tested in all ways. I was learning about patience, loving myself, creating, manifesting, being still and mindful of everything in my life, being grateful and so much more. There’s nothing that will teach you valuable lessons and perhaps faster, then when you have something and then one day you don’t have it anymore, especially your health.

I was many days, unable to shower, pick anything up, move, sleep, brush my hair and teeth, get dressed or go to the bathroom by myself. It caused so much pain I would cry out. Doctors gave me pills and more pills. I had to use oxygen at home and go to physical therapy. I became very aware of the really important people in my life and I was grateful for them. We learn to let go of ego and pride when we truly need someone else’s help. 

So my friends, “A Season of Love,”  was partly written before all that happened, but some of it wasn’t. Some was born out of true life experiences and learning, never giving up and staying strong on my path, even when I couldn’t see another step in front of me, I learned to have more faith. I learned about being very grateful for this moment. The one I’m having right now. Breathing, blinking, typing, sitting, moving my right leg up and down and sharing this message with you. 

I hope you will acquire your own copy of my book or get it in ebook format for your eReader. On my book page, there is a link to get a free eReader for your computer or phone. Please do take a moment to visit and read more information about, “A Season of Love,  and enjoy the music and links I’ve shared there. I hope you will feel compelled to read it and I pray you enjoy it.

Thank you to many for your support over the years. Support in love, good energy, little pushes to get the book finished and to never, ever give up! Keep your dream a live and set your mind and heart to accomplishing what you’ve been called to do and what your soul is urging you to do.

The video here is by “Lonestar,” called, “Mountains.” I’m not really into country music, but I like some of it and this song, well, you just have to listen to the words and know why I fell in love with it. I hope you enjoy it.~
