A Season of Love Message~11-28-11~”Being Real”~

November 28, 2011

A Season of Love Message for Monday:  Today is a good day to “just be real!” Being “real” to me, is when we allow ourselves to be who we are, not to put on airs or try and be something or someone we’re not or try to do something we’re not really feeling. As a Writer, I have times when the inspiration flows and other times it doesn’t. I cannot force the words or it doesn’t sound good or isn’t coming from my heart. During Thanksgiving, I got busy cleaning, cooking and spending time with my family and I didn’t even open my computer. I felt “guilty” for not taking out time to write my weekly messages or to even write and say I was taking some time off. There was something in me that kept telling me it was ok, that others understood and taking time off for a bit wasn’t “bad.” In our busy worlds I think we often try to please too many people and sometimes forget about ourselves. We all need some down time to just be ourselves and give to ourselves too. Just be real and tell yourself its ok to slow down and take some time for YOU!

I found myself cleaning and basically over doing it. I’ve done it before and I guess I just don’t learn! With a family and pets, those are just two reasons I’m always busy trying to keep up with chores around the house and when guest come, I tend to overdo it and cause myself to be exhausted for a few days afterwards. I have Fibromyalgia and recently my doctors had changed some medications I’m on for blood pressure and asthma. While preparing for Thanksgiving and seeing our son and Grandson, we had to get things in our house in order for them to stay overnight and spend time with us. We’d been going through all sorts of things and had our spare room in disarray, so I spent quite a bit of time organizing, washing linens, dusting, cleaning, plus shopping for food and dealing with many other things that had to be done. I see how easy it is  to become overwhelmed or over do things. I was happy to see them and I did what I had to do and then just spent quality time with my loved ones. I didn’t have the energy to really do much online, much less write something from my heart, even though I took lots of mental notes on things to write about in the near future. The Holidays seem to do something to me, not sure if it’s easy to explain, I enjoy them, but I think  a lot, about how much I wish we could have all this cheer, joy, love and holiday spirit, all year round! If I’m not careful, I can get into a bit of a funky mood, just thinking about and feeling the energy all around me from the Holidays.

Being real and allowing myself time to work through all of this “Holiday stuff,” is a gift I give myself each year. I love the magic in children’s eyes during the Holidays and love to share traditions, stories and the magic with them. Just taking time to be real and allow my inner child to partake of some of the Holiday fun is important. So, if you don’t see me around on a regular basis until sometime in January 2012, between the shopping and wrapping, giving and celebrating, loving and eating, (and also cleaning) you know when I write, it will be quality versus quantity, just how I like to spend my Holidays! I will be around, just being me and sharing lots of love with you too when I do have time to write and share. The messages may be a little late or they may not, but they will always be exactly what I was supposed to share and at the right time. 

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with love, laughter, joy and blessings. 

Peace, Fran~Mysti~

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,

Spiritual Pathways for Tuesday:  We all have busy lives. Going to work, kids, school, shopping, appointments, not always making time to meditate or spend time with SpiritGod. Spirit is always within us and in everything around us. We may think we can’t find the time to spend quality time with SpiritGod, but we can do it all throughout our day. We can talk to Spirit while we’re driving, vacuuming, jogging, taking a hot bath, washing the dishes, washing windows, sweeping the floor or many activities we do! It’s all a matter of letting things flow and feeling the Divine energy. 

I have found many ways to have quality time with Spirit and find inspiration. I love looking out the window at my flower gardens and nature while I’m washing dishes.  I sing when I’m vacuuming or cleaning and feel the energy rise in me. I will sit on my front porch listening to the birds sing or while riding in a car on the way to an appointment looking out the window. When I sit in the waiting room, I rarely read or look at my cell phone, I take that time to just sit quietly and go within, taking a break from movement, thinking and always doing something. If we pay attention, we always seem to find opportunities for what we really need.
