Oh my gosh, I can hardly believe I haven’t posted here but twice this year! Well, my dear ones, 2015 has been an interesting year and with just two and a half months to go! It’s already October!

This year has been a full year of growth, realizations, changes, health challenges, tossing out and simplifying life, and so much more in between. I’m not sure where to begin, but after the death of my Dad last year, life certainly changed for everyone in my family. I’m one of five children and our Mom needed us all more than ever at this time. She’s a strong woman, but each birthday, holiday and conversation was filled with memories and I felt life was moving so fast all around me, I needed some time to “grieve” in my own way. I use the term “grieve” carefully because while I miss my Dad, learning has been elevated to a different level since his passing, in so many ways. Life has changed, I have changed and I feel blessed.

My health has been a pain, literally, for me for a long time. The last few years I’ve slowly lost some of my mobility and gained a lot of pain all over, just about every inch of my body. Being able to get up, get dressed, possibly go to pool therapy or to spend time with family or even shop for groceries, has been a challenge and since my husband also has health issues that keep him busy, life some days can be frustrating and definitely keep me taking deep breaths and asking for help from my Higher Power. I find myself talking to my Dad and my “helpers,” which include angels, faeries, spirit guides, my dogs and more. I don’t have a lot of close friends that live close by or even those I can call when I just need to vent or share. Mostly it’s because I’m an introvert, wanting to write, do my own thing, be alone or rest and heal some days. I’m grateful I’m able to have a life and lifestyle to work from home and not have to drive to a job away from home every day. There are also times when I can stand up in a crowd, speak, teach and help others, being quite the people person. I guess that keeps things interesting, but sometimes it is a challenge to push myself! 2015 has been a year of reflection, learning to keep my cool, listening more than speaking, doing my best to be kind to myself and simplifying my life even more. With so many changes and challenges, I feel my body, mind, soul and spirit have all been unbalanced. I have been working and resting to bring them all back together. I can barely walk, but I keep on doing it through the pain. I wonder some nights, how I make it through the days, but I just do. I have so much pain I barely noticed my stomach and guts were not feeling right, but I figured it was from stress, fatigue, Tylenol or similar pain medicine or food I just couldn’t tolerate anymore. Finally I ended up at the Emergency Room and was told I had Diverticulitis. I was hospitalized, but not before I tried to deal with it at home for a few weeks or more. I couldn’t keep anything in my body, I lost twelve pounds in a few days and ended up not eating anymore. I became very dehydrated and ill. I am happy to say I’m finally feeling better. I have not gained the weight back and I do believe everything happens for a reason. My body seems to be finding more balance and “being empty” for a while has reset my system. I snicker at what I tell people, part of a joke I heard somewhere years ago, about how the brain thinks it controls the body and the heart thinks it controls the body, but in actuality, it is the digestive system or the “ass” that controls everything! LOL. Think about it, if our guts are out of whack, the rest of our body becomes sick and in the “end” (no pun intended) our butthole controls us, lol. Make sense? If things stop at that end, everything can become sick and unbalanced!

Oh yes, I did say simplify and my goodness, has that been interesting. We’ve had some great guys working on our house with what started out as tearing down and replacing our front porch/deck and windows in the front of the house which turned into making the upper deck into an enclosed screened porch, new lower deck with a ramp, new front windows and double french doors leading into the enclosed porch, a new front door, new closet, tearing down a wall and letting more light into our home! I am so happy how much better the energy is flowing! Much better Feng Shui! This started in July and it is still not finished, but with it turning into a much bigger job, we’ve been patient and we highly recommend, “Smith Construction,” for anyone in our area if they need home repairs or additions done in their home. Next, they are updating and repairing our sun room before winter and before adding an addition to our home… so they may be busy for a while, then you can have them! *Smile* We are very happy with their work and how much love they put into everything they do! It truly shows!

We also had a new heating and cooling system installed in our house! We have lived here fifteen years and only used the air conditioning, but used a wood stove to heat each winter. Finally, we have a choice! It will be nice to use central heat but also use the wood stove, which I love so much and appreciate when the electricity goes out. To me, there is nothing quite like the beauty of a fire and the warmth on a cold winters night!

With the title of this blog post being, “Change, Challenges and Simplicity,” I have told you some of the changes, the challenges and the simplicity part is the inner peace through all situations and how much I’ve grown through it all! I feel blessed and I am grateful as I look back on the lessons learned and for what’s to come. I know I can make it through anything that comes my way, because I am never alone, I trust and I draw strength from my Higher Power and the Universe!

~Happy Autumn everyone~

Love, light, peace and joy, Mysti~

LoveNote for Sunday May 11, 2014~

I am certain, I love myself more now than I have ever before. I am comfortable with who I am as a person, inside and out. I may not be what someone else feels is right, but I am not them, I am me! I have lived through many experiences and problems, big and small and I am stronger and better for each one. I have learned many lessons and I welcome them. My body is not what it used to be, but why should it be? I am older, I am wiser, I know myself and I value everything about me. Some days are better than others, so I take a deep breath and count my blessings. I strive to help others on their journeys, when they have doubts and need to learn to love themselves.

Believe me. This was not something that came easily or fast, but as I shared in my book, “A Season of Love,” “When we experience trials, we should not look back on them or curse them, but do our best to be grateful and have joy for receiving each lesson which makes us stronger. Like a sword being created, the Master folds the heated metal, over and over again, tempering it, making it strong and worthy. We, like the sword, are put through heated times, only to make us stronger!”

Blessings and love, Fran~Mysti~May 2014

A Season of Love Message~11-18-11~

November 18, 2011

A Season of Love Message for Friday:  Today is a good day to fall in love again with someone or something in your life! Too often, life gets busy and we lose touch with those we love and many of the things we love to do. Our passions fade and we become accustom to how life seems to fall into a pattern we just get used to. It’s a great time to wake up and realize our life is important and what truly matters. We can live, day in and day out, just getting by or we can fall in love with our lives again, those in it, and the things we used to love to do, those things we did for pleasure and passion, not just because we have to. Take time today to ponder what you truly love or used to love with more passion and make a pact with yourself to love them again and don’t forget about loving you more too!

Is there someone or something in your life you feel you’ve neglected or slowly fallen away from? Do you feel the love is not as strong as it used to be? When we realize we’ve been short-changing ourselves and aren’t living our lives to our “love” potential, only we can do something about it.  Perhaps you and your significant other need to have more quality time together and life’s busy schedule has been getting hectic, pulling you away from each other. Do you have a hobby you used to enjoy, that gave you peace and joy and now you’ve no time for it? Maybe you would like to learn something new and feel you don’t have time to add anything else to your list of many things to do. Would you like to make new friends and catch up with old friends? When we take time to really look at our lives and see the important things slipping by without us, it’s time to reevaluate and make changes. We have the power to do it, no one else. We may need to rearrange a few things, really get excited and ask for a little help, here and there, but there’s nothing wrong with that! For me, I’m falling in love again with many things in my life, some I’ve neglected due to losing sight of importance and others I just didn’t make time for anymore. There are so many people and things I love in my life that are worth my time. Today is a perfect day to fall in love!

Blessings & grace,

~Mysti-Fran

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!

Spiritual Pathways for Monday:  Today, I realize, when I need to make changes in my life, I cannot just sit in one place and expect them to fall into my lap. I must think or visualize the changes, speak them and then act upon them, creating them. Believe in them! I must move the energy, begin, take the first step forward, before the wheels begin to turn to make changes I desire in my life. I believe!

When we reach a place in our lives when we sense or feel changes need to be made, we have choices. We can do nothing, thinking things will change on their own or we can begin to think of a plan, write down ideas, speak positively and begin preparing for those changes to come into our lives. I’ve found when I just start, taking the first steps, the energy moves and things begin to happen! Remember, for the highest good and believe that what we need or desire will come or something even better!

Spiritual Pathways for Thursday~9-22-11: The Autumn Equinox is almost upon us. Take some time to walk outside and enjoy the changes in nature. Sit under a tree, enjoy, breathe in the wonderful energy and know that just like the seasons, we also go through changes and cycles in our lives. Enjoy the cooler days and take time to appreciate nature’s beauty. 

For those on the other side of the world, Happy Spring! May we all feel the wonderful energy surging through Mother Earth as she turns once again and the days begin to change. It’s amazing how she keeps the balance and life can be what we believe and what we make it. We are all creators. Blessings and light.~

HUMINGBIRDWELCOME

Hello, this is my new blog! I hope to get busy very soon sharing some of my thoughts, my writings, inspirations and quotes. I feel very blessed to have found a nice place to do all my blogging instead of having it spread out in so many places. I’m also very happy, so many people have continued to ask me to please share more of my writings and insights, my Spiritual Pathways, my Faery and Soul messages, the Spiritual LoveNotes, and to keep doing what I’ve been doing for a long time! I pray these blog messages will be helpful, inspirational and uplifting. We’ve all grown on our paths and there’s always so much to share! Sometimes I get so busy, behind he scenes lately, people wonder where I’ve been or what I’m up to. (smile) I assure you, I’m around and I never stop thinking of all of you and what I’m here to do! Please come back often and say hello when you can.

Love, peace, joy and blessings,

        Mystiblu/Fran~
