December 21-28~ Winter Solstice &  The New Year~

I can hardly believe it’s already December, (and this post took me seven days to write) much less Winter Solstice! Christmas is in a few days and although most of the important things are finished, I can feel myself wanting more sleep and time alone to think and just be myself.

I did not write here in August or November, and I beat myself up a little, telling myself I should have made time. Honestly, the last few months, I have had to pick and choose what’s more important; my health, pleasing others, spending time online, or being with my family and getting quality rest! My health has been a constant issue in 2014.

My health has actually kept me from doing so many things during the year that would have been fun, interesting, exciting and educational. I have been working very hard to get healthier; going to physical therapy, water therapy, being diligent and on time to many doctor’s appointments, handling the health things that have popped up and demanded my attention even when I thought I couldn’t do anymore, walk another step, see another doctor; I persevered. We are much stronger than we think we are!

When I hear people saying they hope 2015 will be better than 2014, I think to myself, how can I create a better year than the last? When I have quiet time, I think a lot. I have a gift, or perhaps some would call it a curse. I see visions in my head when I think or remember. In color pictures, vivid, and sometimes like seeing a movie. I also have visions of things to come, I call them glimpses, and hints of things I need to pay attention to. With so much happening around me and inside of me, I have missed some things, but happily, I’m often given another chance!

One thing I could not have had another chance at, was the passing of my Dad this year, in August. I knew in my heart it would be soon, but I did not know how soon or how fast this would happen. I feel very blessed to have had time to make my peace with him years ago and let go of past hurts and issues. He made a point to say, I’m sorry, some of what you’re going through is my fault and I love you. I was able to say I love you easier, as he got older, whether he said it back or not, it did not matter, because I knew he loved me. Sometimes we think “words” will make us feel better, but they are not always necessary when others are not good at sharing them or when feelings are shared instead of spoken. I am so grateful I was with him when he took his last breath on this earth. He was not able to speak; he wouldn’t have needed to because we all felt so much love and I know he felt it too.

What is really important to you? Have you learned to let go of things that don’t matter or things you can do without or that really are not important anymore? Have you forgiven others and forgiven yourself? As I’ve gotten older, I can see things in my life that no one else really cared about but me, and that I really can do things differently and simplify. There is a time to do more because we want to help others and go that extra mile. Then there are times to allow others to do things; maybe things we used to do and we can now pass the torch or delegate to let someone else learn, so we can do less. I have learned so much in 2014, so many lessons, and I made a giant leap of growth and listening to my inner self rather than everyone else. The world needs more compassion, love, understanding, caring, peace, kindness and light. Be the light to someone when they need it, but learn to do what feels good to your soul and what you know is right. Pay attention to your gut/inner feelings and go with them. Don’t be in a hurry, be still and allow information to come to you instead of jumping too fast and making a mistake. The world is in a hurry. Everyone wants to move fast and get things done, but it can be done with peace and wisdom and not in a hurried rush, causing anxiety and stress. Take time to let life flow like a river and find peace and beauty in everything.

Yes, this has been a very full year. I’ve learned more than I ever could have imagined. I’ve dealt with pain in my body and in my heart, but I never gave up; I kept moving forward. I’ve learned even more about being kind and knowing when to be tough, with love, and to allow doors to open and close and not get upset because I didn’t jump when others thought I should. I am closer to my soul than ever before, as in, knowing even more who I am and what I’m here to do. I may not get things done in everyone else’s timing, but that’s ok, I’m still getting things done and that’s what truly matters.

I wish you peace, prosperity and love for the New Year! Be true to your own heart and create lots of wonderful moments in 2015!!

Peace, joy and light, Fran Mystiblu Hafey~

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

Our Christmas tree December 2012

Our Christmas tree December 2012

I am finished with my decorating and gift wrapping and looking forward to good times with family for the holidays. The television is on with constant holiday specials and shows, while I do last minute preparations. The temperatures have dropped and we may even have snow and ice tomorrow, Christmas eve. I look forward to it, but also know so many will be traveling, including us during the next few days. I’m sitting going over my list and checking it twice when I decide to turn on my new laptop and work on learning how to get around on it and updating some programs. I’m not used to a touch screen but I’m getting the hang of it for the most part. I hit a box on the start page and it goes to news. I usually don’t read a lot of the news online, not daily anyway, but something caught  my attention and I began to read the long article. So many emotions came over me and I felt I wanted to share some of them here on my blog.

I read about courage, sadness, death, community, Christmas lights, presents, people who care and those that wanted to help in anyway they could. My heart was touched and tears welled up in my eyes. As I read, I could see images in my mind, in full color, and my emotions were bitter sweet. I read about love, unconditional love, giving, life, children, the true holiday spirit, where people were doing their best to make some kind of sense out of something that made no sense. I could feel and hear angels singing and at a time when they’re nearer to earth than ever, they’re needed more than ever to comfort and spread joy, just as we’re all needed to help do this.

I felt proud to read of so many people giving of themselves and doing what I wish more people would do all year long and everyday. I wondered why tragedy brings people together and opens their eyes and hearts to the art of true humanity, but why it doesn’t always last. I wiped the tears from my eyes and said a prayer for the angels affected and the angels helping now. Such deep emotions, even as large as our world is, touch others and cause vibrations to change. It’s like a ripple in the ocean; it takes time to move the water and it can travel a great distance, but it makes a change, an effect on the water, just as events with humanity. 

With spirits high, emotions strong, love in the air-especially this time of year, we need to be aware of how blessed we are and how important it is for us all to be awake and aware of our lives; if not, it’s for nothing. We are here to make a difference and even when we do things quietly or without others knowing, we know we’re here for a purpose. Being kind, sharing love, creating peace, being joyful and filled with light… we’re being a positive example to the world and helping the balance. 

As the last days of 2012 count down, take time to find the good things about your life, be a positive example, give of yourself and your time in ways you feel are right in your heart. Do your best to help others, love always, even when you must deal with not so positive people or situations. Be gentle with yourself and let go of expectations and just live life to the fullest, living your dreams and creating the life you deserve and a life filled with joy and love. Be well.

Wishing everyone wonderful Holidays filled with magic, a Merry Christmas, a Cool Yule, and joy, peace, love and light, no matter your belief or how you celebrate. May your New Year be fantastic and the best yet!! ~2013~

Sent with love,


Fran Hafey

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.~
