What losing my cat taught me

Josephine is a shelter cat (I have 3 adopted fur babies).  She is an inside cat, so when she went missing a few weeks ago I was worried, scared and untethered.  I felt like part of my life was gone.  I was supposed to protect and care for her—that’s what I signed up for when I adopted her.  I pictured her out there in the pouring spring rain-hiding, wet, hungry and lonely. This was on top of some other major WTFs in my world.Well, not too major, but things usually go pretty smoothly for me, especially lately.  I am the type of person that likes it when things work and go smoothly without a bunch of snafus, stress and wasted energy.  SO when I got a call from a post office in Pennsylvania that my passport (getting it renewed) was loose there…I was thinking, “OH, s@#*! What is going on???”Besides Josephine and the passport issues, many things (cups, buttons, and plates) were breaking (always an attention getter), a flat tire (there’s a communication story here too-You need to tell the guys the correct tire to fix or you have to go back the next day-oops!!), and other lost mail.  I began to wonder and question. What’s the lesson?  What am I to learn from all this? There were many: ask for help communication techniques be specific There is a vast community and special angels of people who want to help you find your lost cat.  Ask them for help. (It’s not my norm to ask for help BTW—hmm? that’s interesting-see below [another lesson?])  Many went above and beyond what I ever would have dreamed of; to offer advice, lend me a trap, canvas the neighborhood, make me posters and sincerely care about Josephine being returned home. My heart was so [...]

Tree Transmissions Project for Peace–YOU can do something!

Our home, planet Earth and its peoples are undergoing a huge amount of stress, fear and conflict, which has many of us wondering— “What can I do?” Are you one of those sensitive beings who is feeling a bit overwhelmed, fearful, anxious and/or helpless about the situations going on around the world? I know I have at times. Today I have a suggestion for a tool that we can all use to facilitate a more positive, nourishing and peaceful planet. And guess what, it is super easy and everyone can do it. First, we need some helpers. Some very wise and experienced beings have stepped up and agreed to work with us for the benefit of all. Ancient people, like the Cherokee people of North America, revered these beings and knew of their sacred nature and their specialized qualities. These wise beings are the trees. The Cherokee especially thought of the White Pine and conifers as highly efficient in spreading the vibration of peace and transforming aggression. The deep roots of the trees can transmit peace deeply into the Earth. It also transmits it up and outward. Broadcasting it like a signal through the tips of its branches…look at them…don’t they look like antennae? We can maximize this effect with large numbers of trees and people acting together. And all we have to do is ask.  This is the one thing we have to do. Humbly ask their help. I am calling this the “Tree Transmissions Project for Peace.” I suggest we also use the power of the upcoming New Moon, Equinox and Eclipse on March 20, 2015 to strengthen our ceremonies around this request. Here are times of the exact equinox in the United States 6:45 P.M. EDT, 5:45 P.M. CDT, 4:45 P.M. MDT, and 3:45 P.M. PDT Okay, [...]
