What is a blessing?
Poet John O’Donohoe says:
Do you believe in life after death? Do you believe that your soul continues when you leave the physical body? I had believed in the concept, but it was very difficult to hold onto after my husband passed away in May. I couldn’t feel his energy, see his face, hear his voice, receive any messages. Was I caught in an illusion where we had made this up to feel better?
The last 4 months since my husband passed away have been very hard. Despite having a daily spiritual practice, knowing how to meditate and use energy healing, I could not deal with everything. All the emotions that came up were very raw and painful. And the tears, continuous tears.
A few days ago there was a break in the winter weather. It was warm and I was able to sit outside and soak in the sunshine. Just sitting outside without thinking, without trying to figure things out.
Suddenly, the phrase, “It is already done,” popped into my mind. It was a phrase from “Say Yes to Your Success” by Kim Burgner, founder of NWA Center for Spiritual Living.*
A few days before the New Year, I was reading a blog and came across Awakening to Your Divine Self– an Oracle Card Deck. It is a wonderfully unique deck. It was created by 39 intuitive artists and healers from around the world. As I read about their Soul Inspired Vision, I wanted to order the deck. On the website, you are invited to browse through the gallery and purchase your deck from the individual artist.
The New Year has arrived stormy and cold here in the United States. It seems that even the weather is conspiring to help us turn inward and be more reflective. Two important challenges coming up for this year, shared by Karen Curry, Human Design teacher and author are examining what has value and meaning in our life and abundance.
