Cup with hot tea near computerBy Fran Mysti Hafey

Sometimes there are situations that require no words. A look, a knowing, an understanding between two beings or when a soul recognizes another soul.  When a smile and a hug show our happiness. Or perhaps when someone’s grief is so deep there are no words to comfort; just being there can be enough, a silent, loving energy that surrounds them with love and healing.

Words can be healing or hurtful. They can help or destroy. Choosing our words carefully can make a big difference.

One of the things I did to help myself heal is writing. I was never very good at journaling or writing in a diary every day, but about twenty years ago I began writing more seriously. I wrote poetry and short stories when I was younger; it helped me deal with some tough situations. But much later, I needed to write and share my stories to help others. I dedicated more time to writing and it felt good. It helped me to remember memories, good and bad, as they came to the surface. I always ended each story with a positive note that felt good. Suddenly, I had people sending me emails and leaving comments at my website and groups, telling me how my stories helped them. It felt good to know my sharing was helping others and also helping me to heal inside too!

I’ve been upset for a while that I haven’t been writing every day or even every month! When I came to my blog to make some updates, I noticed I hadn’t posted here in a year! I was shocked and sad too. I feel so much in me that wants to come out onto paper or online! I take notes or jot down ideas I have so I can come back to them later. Then something else comes up or I’m in pain, need to rest or just plain busy! I desire to write more again, so this post is my promise to myself and to others, that I will write more! I hope to write at least once a month! It’s important for me to write, it is part of me and what I am here to do, and, it’s healing.

Love, light, joy and blessings,

Fran~

P.S. Just to let you know, I typed this whole page while wearing a thumb and wrist brace on! It took me forever, but I wanted to post it before midnight, Eastern time, so it would be posted in January! I then remembered, it’s also the Full BLUE Moon and a Total Lunar Eclipse!! What a great time to reaffirm to myself to write and heal more! (((Very Big Smile!!)))

Okay, so I know I missed posting anything for the holidays or in January, but I can remember sitting here and telling myself I just needed to do nothing or as little as possible. For me, when I say that, usually what happens is all sorts of things start popping up to be done, but this time, thank heavens, life slowed down. I really needed that, especially since the few months before, I got hit pretty hard with all sorts of things that kept me busy, and they were not of my choosing! Oh you know, like a tooth acting up, an old crown actually, that decided it was time to come off and need more work than before. Doctors appointments and unexpected things that come up we have to take care of. Once the holidays were over, I decided to take things much slower; my choice.

I feel taking a mini sabbatical has been good. I’ve been able to stay up late, sleep later, go through “stuff” at home and organize. We’ve had people come in and do some small home repairs, which always feels good, and getting rid of old mail, clutter, reviving the energy throughout our home! I still have days when I don’t do much, sitting and just resting, due to Fibromyalgia, Arthritis and other overlapping health issues. Regardless, I always try to do something, even if it’s getting dressed, washing a load of clothes and feeding the dogs! I don’t really like how everything on television and online in January is about losing weight, getting healthier, exercise equipment, blah, blah, blah, so I ignore it usually, but, it does remind me, just as I change the calendar, to make changes I may have gotten sluggish about during Fall and the Holidays. Winter is thickly upon us in Virginia in January and February which has slowed me down even more this year with my left knee, ankle, shoulder and neck giving me so much pain and stiffness. My doctors are not in agreement with what to do about my knees, so I am doing the best I can, meditating and doing what I can to heal, my own way!

Here it is February already and with snow, comes my Birthday. I had a nice Birthday weekend, because my day landed on Friday the 13th! I’m not superstitious, so it’s all good. My husband, son and a friend of his cooked for me and we enjoyed good food, good wine, good conversation and laughed a lot! It was a nice Birthday and I feel very blessed. I usually don’t even leave home anymore to celebrate due to Valentine’s day or icy, snowy weather. I was happy I ventured out on a sub-zero temperature night to be with family and friends. I noticed the stars shining so bright when we walked out to leave and saw several constellations vividly. The thought that went through my mind was, “My blessings are equal to the stars in the sky tonight!”

Thank you for being here with me. I look forward to your comments and meeting you. May this year be filled with even more positive energy, blessings, love and light.

Love, peace and joy, Mysti-Fran~

*The Story of why I sign Mysti-Fran or Fran-Mysti or sometimes Mystiblu:* I’ve been on the internet for a long time. Back then, people were urged to use an “alias” so people wouldn’t know who they were. I chose the name, “Mistyblue,” for the love of my Samoyed dog that looked like a white wolf! As I learned and found my path, I was Spiritually advised to change my name online and in my ventures to “Mystiblu,” which has even more meaning for me, my work and path.
