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~

A Moment with Mysti~ March 19, 2014~Healing~

Feeling beat up, but happy! I’m happy because finally someone has determined the source of much of my physical pain. Physical therapy can be tough, but I have to keep reminding myself of the positive benefits. I feel bruised and battered, but all for the greater good. I have wanted to write many days, but I knew I needed to rest and when I could, do things at home needing to be done. With so many energy changes occurring in the last few months, my head has been swimming with ideas and inspiration, but I pace myself. Winter, where I live, has been long and harsh and just as I feel my body, mind and spirit making big changes, the weather is about to do the same too. It takes great strength to get around physically and I’m proud I’m nurturing myself and listening from within to put other things to the side and concentrate on my physical well being. I know all things are connected and as I heal I feel more balance; yet another journey on my path.

Cluttered deskAlbert Einsteinquote

Clutter can cause energy blockages, yes, but we can rise about it just as we do with negative energy. A clean, organized, uncluttered space is better, closer to God they say, but, when I sit down to write, create or lift my energy level up to help heal, I can and have risen above it. I would not have accomplished what I have today, if I had not learned how to rise above lower energy, the energy that clutter and feeling scattered can create; similar to meditating

Some people like to meditate with silence, music, candles or incense burning, others meditate when they go for a walk, take a bath, clean house, wash dishes or drive. The same is with our homes and spaces, we all live differently and no one way is correct or the only way.

Feng Shui teaches us to allow energy to flow easily by keeping clutter under control. Feng Shui means “water and air” which is needed to flow in our sacred space to keep energy from becoming stagnated. I believe in Feng Shui and try to practice it in my home, but its not easy, with a small home, little storage and an odd design. I like a clean and uncluttered space, but it’s just not always possible. 

I have always been told there are other things more important than a clean house. I don’t mind cleaning, I actually enjoy it, it in itself is quite meditating, but I also believe hugs, good conversations, music, home comfort, a child’s laughter and giving attention to things that may not be here tomorrow; are much more important than a spotless house and putting my laundry away. I have learned to live in the moment, cherish what is now, clean as I go, but do not allow clutter and cleaning to control me and my energy.

I like a clean uncluttered house, but I also love a comfortable home filled with love, good energy and my family, which consists of humans, dogs and birds. I’ve learned, it’s nearly impossible for one person to keep a house clean when you have a mariad of dogs and kids, not to mention a husband, coming in and out, moving things around, creating dirty-ness and turmoil. When or if I feel things getting out of control, I ask for help from the Universe, SpiritGod and others around me. Since I’d rather do it myself, I rarely ask for help from others, but at times I have had to. It’s just my husband and me now, but we still have dogs and birds which are actually the hardest part and we have Grandchildren visit now and then. We live in the country, it’s peaceful and we work hard.

Some years ago I became very ill and I had to stop doing almost everything. I could feed myself, check my email and do little things, but I had to have help showering, dressing and doing everything at home. I couldn’t pick up a laundry basket, wash dishes, vacuum, sweep, dust, well, I couldn’t do much. I was in pain, very tired and going to physical therapy. I had begun to write my first book a few years earlier and was doing well with all the details of putting it together and getting it published, when this happened. I was devastated, to say the least. I cried often, but then I began to realize perhaps some of this was my own fault. Had I paid attention when I was given messages and dreams about timing, slowing down and asking others for help? Had I done what was asked of me? Often, we need to stop and take account of what’s happening around us and within us. Maybe if I had acted on what I was given, which was take more time in nature, believe the book would be done in perfect timing, allowed myself to rest and take more time for myself, then perhaps I may have been able to handle things better and not fall on my behind and have to go to bed and go through so much to heal and get well.

I sat and watched my husband help me and I felt horrible, until I began not having as much pain and was able to read and concentrate better. I read a wonderful book by Sue Monk Kidd, called, “When the Heart Waits: Spiritual Direction for Life’s Sacred Questions.”  One part of the book spoke to me and I share it with people often. This spoke to my heart and soul and was just what I needed to hear. It said:

I noticed a monk, ski cap pulled over his ears, sitting perfectly still beneath a tree. There was such reference in his silhouette, such tranquil sturdiness, that I paused to watch. He was the picture of waiting. Later I sought him out.

“I saw you today sitting underneath the tree–just sitting there so still. How is it that you can wait so patiently in the moment?  I can’t seem to get used to the idea of doing nothing.” He broke into a wonderful grin. “Well, there’s the problem right there, young lady. You’ve bought into the cultural myth that when you’re waiting, you’re doing nothing.”

  Then he took his hands and placed them on my shoulders, peered straight into my eyes and said, “I hope you’ll hear what I’m about to tell you. I hope you’ll hear it all the way down to your toes. When you’re waiting, you’re not doing nothing. You’re doing the most important something there is. You’re allowing your soul to grow up. If you can’t be still and wait, you can’t become what God created you to be.” Somehow I knew in my soul that his words were God’s words.

 From “When The Heart Waits” Spiritual Direction for Life’s Sacred Questions by Sue Monk Kidd

This passage in Sue’s book helped me realize, I was not able to do a lot of cleaning or much of anything else, but instead of feeling bad about it, I took it as an opportunity to heal, grow and go within and learn more about my life. Just like when I’m busy with all sorts of things and my house isn’t as clean or uncluttered as it could be. I may have a stack of books and magazines on the end table, a few dishes in the sink, clothes in baskets to be put away or a pile of paperwork on my desk, but I know if I have a deadline or schedule to keep and it’s not done, it will still be there waiting for me when I get finished. It makes me feel good when I put the dishes in the dishwasher, start some laundry, vacuum the rug, take out the trash and straighten up the kitchen table. There are lots of little things we can do to help us feel better and help the energy flow even when we can’t do a deep cleaning or when we live with some clutter day by day.  

I am only one person and I have to love myself enough to let some things go and not try and kill myself to get everything done. What good would I be if I never listened to my inspiration and sat down to write or create when I felt led to do so? I know when to take time to rest, listen from within and just let my soul grow up. I know there’s always plenty to do, waiting for me to get to it, just like I’m sure there are a few dozen things I could be doing right now instead of writing this, but I know I was pushed along by my helpers to write this now and not later so I could share it with you! 

*Note: This article is not a contradiction of what I believe about clutter, it’s just how I feel about life! My helpers consist of my angels, guides, faeries and others that help from time to time; more on that topic at a later date. 🙂

Blessings and love~

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. 

*Thank you for reading and if you would like to read similar writings, please take a look and order my book, “A Season of Love,” at my book page or here on my blog on its on page!
