Blessing- A Pause That Refreshes 1.2.19

 

A Pause that Refreshes

 

What if you stopped all the things that you think you should do?

Some things require completion.

Some things can have a rest.

 

Now is the time to reassess how you are spending your life.

Are you using your daily dose of aliveness to do the same old thing?

Or are you shifting and growing and leaving behind what’s over.

 

Prayerfully ask yourself,

Is this really for my highest good?

Is this something I need to complete today?

Am I doing something that I really believe in?

 

Bless yourself with a pause that refreshes your life.

 

Taking personal control of how you are spending your time frees you from

the demands from others on the time of your life.

 

Love,  Susan and David

Blessing for the Day 1.1.19

 

Remembering You

 

Remember, you were born a sovereign being.

Remember, you were born from wholeness.

You can remember your roots.

Now, when you feel your breath, you are on the edge of your knowing.

You can claim the knowing the truth, your wholeness.

You are not broken.

From this bright moment of wholeness, you will ignite a flood of possibilities.

Trust that possibility exists for you, perfectly formed, to serve you.

Take a moment and feel the fresh truth of you arriving in your body,

signaled by the cool freshness of the breath you are taking.

Trust your wholeness.

Receive anew the truth of who you are.

Enjoy the new year remembering you.

 

Love,

Susan and David

Blessing For The Day 12.31.18

 

As the year comes to a close and the next year is opening, we received the prayerful guidance to create a blessing every day for the month of January. We look forward to sharing these daily blessing with you.

Blessing

If you allow, this day will deliver magic. There are surprises waiting to be presenced.

What is required is that you allow the presence of mystery to be part of how you live yourself this day.

It means allowing the unpredictable, the sparkle of beauty, the fragrance of joy to arrive in you. It is a simple yet profound change in how you run yourself.

Mystery is everywhere as life exceeds, by its nature, the confines of the mind. Allowing mystery is the gateway that increases the flow of wonder, joy and the gift of life itself. 

Allow yourselves to be surprised and you will be.

 

Love, David and Susan

Help Bring Not So Little Cora to the World

Help Bring Not So Little Cora to the World

 

There is something in each of us that is bursting at the seams.

It can’t wait to come out and play in the world.

As some of you know, I was inspired, some would say ‘called’, to write Not So Little Cora, a children’s book for adults too. The journey of writing this is something that I think we all can relate to. I had to face into and make peace with all the dark jackals that wanted to talk me out of manifesting what my heart was calling me to create.

This is a time in the world when each of us is being called to live joyously and wildly. We are all are being inspired to arise. In creating this book, I wanted to give children and adults the remembrance of what it’s like to live unfettered through love connected to the ALL of Life.

As Cora’s friend Marco says,

“Love is bigger than Big and knows just what to do.”

What if that playful, curious, wonder-filled child in each of us had a place at the table of our lives?  I want more of that inside me.

A friend who read Not So Little Cora wrote,

“I’m sure kids will love it, but I’ll be very excited to give more than a few copies to adults too!! Not So Little Cora taught me so much. I’ll be reading it more than once. Cora awoke the kid inside me that I had to protect for so long. But now, I’m inspired to bring that inner kid out again and see life from a higher and more loving perspective!” C.P. San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.

I’m writing to you because you are each part of my spiritual family, my family of love.

Today I’ve launched an IndieGogo fundraiser to help with publishing, illustrations, website, Spanish translation and marketing.

Will you help bring Not So Little Cora into the world? I’d love your help in championing the cause of creativity, innocence and love that Cora embodies.

Thank you all for your love and support for both David and myself in the Wisdom Rx community. And for helping this book come to fruition. I’m excited that Not So Little Cora will soon be out in the world.

Love,

Susan, David and Cora

 

Is This Happening To You?

Walking on Water

Is This Happening to You?

We don’t know about you, but any aspect of our lives that is not “on course” with the truth of our being, our true north is up for realignment.

Phew, we’ve felt a little overwhelmed at times.  Have you?

The depth of dying and resurrecting that is happening in and around us is a wonder to behold and sometimes frightening to be in the midst of.

So many “sacred cows” that we’ve created, or the world has created around us are falling by the wayside. When you listen to your heart of hearts, what do you need shift?

The clearer we get the longer our list gets as to the things we need to take care of to align ourselves. At the same time, we can no longer run ourselves the way we used to. No pushing or going past our energy reserves.

So, here’s what we’re learning:

    • Balance work and to do lists with the battery of joy, fun and rest
    • When something is over don’t put any more energy into it.
    • Trust that endings bring the next new life into form.
    • Begin your day in quiet meditation. Just your intention to be still allows your consciousness to really focus and possibility to flow.
    • When you feel fatigue, rest. Even a 15 minute or less “power nap” can reinvigorate you for the rest of the day.

Let yourself be open to promptings from the life around you. Grace and creativity are relentlessly present. The creativity that Life is, is always looking for ways to get our attention and work for us so that we can adjust the direction of our lives to produce greater joy and wonder. The signal of our true north continues to refine and becomes brighter and present.

What would you add to this list? We love learning with you.

Breaking Open

Breaking Open

Breaking Open

Not long after our return from our Soul Food Journey to the UK, I had what I’m calling a breaking open.

A parking cop was in the process of giving us a ticket for the scooter and I managed to talk her out of it. No small feat in San Miguel 😁. I then proceeded to hurry to leave the parking spot. Turning to exit on the three wheeled scooter, I caught a big yellow metal road divider with my front left wheel and went down breaking my collarbone.

And boy, did grace show up.

I jumped to my feet.  Right away, a man ran out and picked up the bike for me. David came out immediately. A good friend who is also a physician had been sitting with us, checked me out and he and his wife drove me to the local hospital for an x-ray, while David road the scooter home and picked up our car. Another doctor friend called one of the best orthopedic surgeons anywhere, and he met me within 10 minutes of arrival in his clinic 45 minutes away.

So only five hours after the accident, I was in surgery. A titanium plate was installed, and I awoke from surgery as if I had been in a lovely sleep.

What is the breaking open you might ask? (other than my collarbone 😁)

  1. A Greater Connection to the Divine

Three weeks into what will be a several month healing process I’ve necessarily given myself time to rest. In that state of openness, I feel a greater connection to the divine source that is always with me.

2. Receiving More

And I’ve had to open up my ability to receive even more. David has lovingly assisted helping me get dressed, wash my hair and of course prepare fantastic food. And dear friends and neighbors have brought food, flowers and sent lovely notes.

3. Loving Stillness Everyday

At the moment,  I cannot physically do things I might otherwise be doing. And I need rest to assist the healing. There is a stillness in that rest, in just being, that is some of the soul food I need.

4. Allowing the Divine to Lead

I’ve been really focused on getting myself out of the way to allow spirit/the divine/source to lead. I couldn’t have used my will to make what happen run as smoothly and easily as it did. The shock I experienced necessitated that something other than my will prevail.  Grace is relentless and always available no matter what the circumstances.

5. A Greater Feeling of Gratitude 

In the deepening of gratitude for all the love from friends and the Divine, my soul has been deeply fed. What a terrific blessing a broken collarbone can be, don’t you think?

 

In love and gratitude,

Susan
