Solitude Saturday!
"It is good to be solitary, for solitude is difficult;
that something is difficult must be a reason the more for us to do it.”
— Rainer Maria Rilke

“In solitude where we are least alone” — Lord Byron

“Solitude is strength; to depend on the presence of the crowd is weakness.
"The man who needs a mob to nerve him is much more alone than he imagines.”
— Paul Brunton
Good Morning,
These past few weeks have been a great adventure for me. I am learning the fine art of spending time alone away from all of the noise of the world and the constant sounds of a ringing phones, nonsense texting, tweets, and other of life full distractions. For thime being, I have turned off my phone and have only turned on to check my work~ scheduled appointments and checked if new clients needed services. Other than that, the phone was off and I spent time meditating, reading spiritual books, watching nature, saying prayers~~~~ for myself, others, our community here on the Gulf Coast dealing with oil spills and the like. I ventured inward to connect with myself on a deeper deeper level. I found a Solitude to be comforting, soothing for my soul and just what I needed to recharge and refresh myself from a very busy summer. good it feels to have time to just breathe and just be.
You may think that to be alone is to be anti-social! On the contrary, solitude is undervalued these days. "Having a deep connection to yourself above others is rarely pursued as an art." We are so plugged into technology, the latest and greatest gadgets, phones, tools, and we’re news hounds, too. Unplugging is so uncommon yet so necessary. I find that people bemoan their single hood, not having full social calendars, and chilling out with a glass of wine and a remote while wearing sweatpants means you’re a loser without a life. Not true. But that’s also not the way to fully nurture yourself, either." There must be a balance.......both are necessary without a doubt!
As you know, I love having scores of friends, checking out crowds, going to the beach, and spending time with loved ones. But sometimes it’s excessive and escapist. Taking a break and a time out seems almost selfish, but it’s the opposite. It is responsible and necessary to find time to be a "recluse." It is in this solitude, I can think undisturbed, meditate, cultivate intimacy with my own needs and desires, and create, create, create!!!!!! I love to write in my journal, scribble, make collages, vision boards, listen to music, meditate, enjoy and appreciate myself.
Sometimes taking a bath, a walk, a hike, or a stroll undisturbed is when our best ideas and "epiphanies percolate without force. "They simply appear. They’re often our best because we didn’t have to brainstorm with anyone else, we didn’t have to cull them on deadline, and they’re our own, from a deep place inside…
So, whatever, whatever is going on in your world, now maybe a good time, especially since it is Saturday, to find things that please you....things that you want to do and NOT HAVE to do. I know you are extremely busy with family and friends, but can't you take just a morning or late afternoon and be alone.....and do nothing or something you want to do...
Think about it, then decide if you would appreciate.....moments in solitude!
I relish mine.....
Happy Saturday!
Live well, live boldly, and Appreciate YOU!

Good Friday Morning Friends!
I hope that this day brings you nice ending to your work week and a open door for a weekend full of fun. This week has been full of quiet insights and internal changes for me. I am beginning to see the light of a new dawn and the settling of raw emotions taking on healing.
We are now in a time of great external earth changes....earthquakes, oil spills, hot weather, as well as, internal changes..... letting go old stuff we no longer need in life, friends, personal items, etc and thoughts we held dear of what we believed to be true till the end of time. We are now realizing... what was once safe and predictable has now shifted and things do not appear as they once did! For me, that is a good thing. I like change, I welcome it....even if it initially hurts and makes me feel uncomfortable. I know it is good for my growth. I may moan and groan, but ultimately, I am grateful to have an opportunity to move forward and take different road, to see new terrian, and nature at it's finest. If I would stay just where I am, I may miss something really accept letting go of the old and moving onto a new path....
Today, I want to leave you with this message from Rev. Angela. It is what I now know for sure.... I hope your soul can hear the sounds of new beginnings in your life and know that we are not meant to suffer, but enjoy life with all of it's beauty and luster!
Have a great weekend.....
Be Happy! Be Well! Live, Laugh, and LOVE daily!
"I will no longer live my life halfbaked!"

"I was not created to suffer, to learn lessons, to improve myself, or to somehow 'get better'.
I was created by the Universe to create a life that contains...whatever I choose.
Because the laws of the Universe operate upon what I truly believe,
if I believe that I must suffer to experience a life of spiritual connection,
I receive suffering in abundance.
If I believe that I'm here to learn something I didn't pick up the first time around,
life brings me many learning opportunities until I learn by choice or by force.
In precisely the same manner, if I believe that I am here to give and receive love without limit, abundance without end, and joy without boundaries, that is what I receive.
I pay close attention to the subtleties of my mind and my heart.
I notice when I'm believing in less than a perfect universe operating perfectly.
I see clearly each instance in which I act upon the belief that Life is finite, lacking intelligence, or capricious...AND CHANGE MY MIND.
I do this by using my innate and inherent spiritual power to guide my beliefs to the Truth.
Anything in me that is out of alignment with the greater expression of Truth
for me is now obliterated by means of this treatment.
I'm no longer willing to live life halfway. I trust in the infinite promise of Spirit,
that I may have life and have it more abundantly. "
And so it is.....
Daily see your life full of abundance and love!
Blessings to you and yours,

Good Morning Friends,
Today I am going to share with you some ideas about living a more passionate life.
I think it is important to first learn the STOP Signs to moving forward...
I feel there are Three things that prevent anyone from living a passionate life:
False Beliefs -
False Concepts -
False Ideas
To begin moving and growing into that passionate life, think about one of the tools I am giving you today......
Take a piece of paper or your journal and make three headings!
False Beliefs, False Concepts, False Ideas.
Now close your eyes and think about your beliefs about life....what are they?
Are they positive or maybe not really honest as this is FOR YOUR EYES ONLY!
Then take the last two phrases and work with them.
After some EXCAVATING, the first step on the journey, take some time to read what you wrote. If you need some fresh insight or support, I am here to read your blog...or give me a call.
Many blessings on the road to an abundant life!
My blessing for you this day is:
May my day be filled with new thoughts and insights that will help me to unearth the things that have been holding be back from living my best life!
I am open and receptive to new ways and ideas with love and gratitude!
And so it is.....
Live your best life NOW!

Good Morning Friends,
Here is a wonderful affirmation that I use daily!
"I shall keep the promise that I have made to myself.
I shall never again tell myself that
I am poor, sick, weak, nor unhappy.
I shall not lie to myself any more, but shall daily speak the
truth to my inner Soul, telling It hat It is wonderful and
marvelous; that It is One with the Great Cause of all Life,
Truth, Power and Action.
I shall whisper these things into my Soul until it breaks
forth into songs of joy with the realization of Its
Limitless possibilities. "

Yes, I shall assure my Soul.
by Ernest Holmes

Every decision you make - every decision - is not a decision about what to do.
It’s a decision about Who You Are.
When you see this, when you understand it, everything changes.
You begin to see life in a new way.
All events, occurrences, and situations turn into opportunities
to do what you came here to do.-
Neale Donald Walsch
What kind of decisions are you making in your life?
Are you getting the results that you want?
Journal your thoughts and desires!
Many blessings and much abundance,

Welcome a brand new week full of possiblities!

Become a possibilitarian!

"No matter how dark things seem to be or actually are, raise your sights and see possibilities -- always see them, for they're always there."
-- Dr. Norman Vincent Peale

"One of the saddest lines in the world is,

'Oh come now - be realistic.'

The best parts of this world were not fashioned by those who were realistic.

They were fashioned by those who dared to look hard at their wishes

and gave them horses to ride."
-- Richard Nelson Bolles

Good Monday Morning,

May this week bring you new possibilities on the road to living a more passionate life!

Remember even when things are looking really bad and there seem to be no real solution....

take five minutes to get out of YOUR HEAD.....and just be in the moment.

Breathe in and out, focus on the breathe for a few seconds...allow thoughts to come and go...

Just relax into the moment.....

Then come back to reality and just maybe...just maybe...there is the answer to your challenge!

Life awaits you......

Smile more and frown will reap great rewards from just a smile on the face....

Have an awesome week!

Many blessings, darlene

The beginning of the end. Grand Canyon 2010
"Before we can forgive one another, we must understand one another."
-- Emma Goldman
I am willing to forgive and understand that all of this situation is in perfect Divine Order.
I am willing to SEE the true picture of my own creation and allow myself to accept, forgive, and let go of old thoughts and laugage in order to live my best life now!
I am ready to be happy and know I am never really alone! dmj'10

Good Morning Friends,

Mmmm. This quote opens my soul to new levels of understanding and to my knees. In the past weeks I have been working hard to find in my heart to forgive not only others that have hurt and abandon me, but also to let go of all of the events that led to my loss. It has been a long, hard challenge, and actually doing what I teach....radical forgiveness...not only the talk therapy, but, also all of the worksheets I give out, have helped me tremendously on the road to healing and renewal of the mind, body, and spirit. As I have been mo oping around and feeling sorry for my loss of friendship and sisterhood, I have also learned that thru deep soul searching that I created just what I needed to learn, grow, and mature into a new spiritual being. The dark of the night and all of the non-stop chatter about: being not good enough, I am alone, no one likes me, I did it all wrong, I said it all wrong, I will never have the strong bonds of sisterhood's over..... what was I thinking or not.......all those negative ideas sent me into a downward spiral. I felt alone, lost, and abandon. I sat with all of it for awhile. I meditated, I journal ed, and I cried bucket of tears!!!!! Why oh could this all happen? I worked so hard, I was get the point!!!!!!! On and on and on...........

Then during the night, I was awakened my a loud voice that said ....."Are you going to get swallowed up in your grief or are you going to listen to what you tell your clients and let go of the nonsense?" Are you ready for a new adventure? Are you willing to SEE the real truth of the matter? Are you ready to lay a new foundation and feel alive and whole in mind, body, and spirit again? In this dream state or whatever it was......I thought I was awake...but who knows, I just was in the moment and I could feel the hand of God on my shoulder, my angels all around me sending me light and love and I felt the embrace of the Holy Spirit. I felt loved! I was not abandoned. I was not and am not alone! I felt peace for the first time in weeks! I could breathe again fully and deeply! I then saw myself full of light and said yes to change, yes to a new beginning, yes to letting go of all of the 'Stuff" that kept me stuck and disabled to move forward. In the following moments I felt myself ready to SEE the real picture. I saw exactly what I needed to learn about my soul path. I saw a beautiful light of hope and adventure ahead. I knew that I had learned and worked what I came to this Universe to do. I was truly at peace with my decisions and ready to set new intentions for my life. This morning I awoke with a new truth and ready to enjoy a brand new day!

So, as you can see even if you are a healer, a spiritual life coach, a counselor, you will and do find blocks and huge boulders on the path......if not, you would not be human....we are as they say, spiritual beings on this earth with a body to have a human experience ...and that can be with the good, the bad, and the ugly! I hope from my sharing all of has helped you understand more of what is going on in your life. If you need some inspiration, guidance or support on the journey of life, please blog....I am always open to new ideas, thoughts, and most willing to help you in any way possible!

Many blessings for a most wonderful day!

"Now is the time.

Needs are great, but your possibilities are greater."
-- Bill Blackman


Just to let you know I have been out of town and did not have access to my computer and blog.

I do apologize! A family member became very ill and I had to be out of town to take care of the situation and help deal with many other family challenges. I am back now and so happy to be home to enjoy summer time here on the Gulf coast! The weather is a bit hot, but it is lovely to be in the sunshine and feel the sea breeze again! I so missed my sleepy little town and all of the gulf coast beauty.

I hope that you are well and you are enjoying the summertime. I hope that you are enjoying family picnics, swimming, and watching some beautiful sunsets with a nice beverage.

Now is the time to enjoy life......find some time each day to just watch the sun set, or get up a few minutes early and see God's creation come alive with brilliant colors and the watch the dew drops on the grass disappear.

Whatever makes you happy...take time TODAY to do it.

Do not put it are worth a few minutes each day to feel your spirit come alive with joy by just taking a few minutes to breath in and breathe out.

Be happy, be well, BE now!

Many blessings!

"Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared."
- The Buddha
"It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness."
- Chinese proverb often quoted by Eleanor Roosevelt
"As we work to create light for others, we naturally light our own way."
- Mary Anne Radmacher
Good Morning Friends,
Please take a few moments today to reflect on the quotes above. Each one has special meaning to me which I will delve into in the coming weeks. For now, I will leave you with a short message as I will be traveling this weekend to be with my children and family in another state.
The message is this...always keep the widow open to bring in the light....allow your mind to be open to see new and better possibilities. For when you are ready to take in the light, then you will also be a strong light out in the world...and we all need that right now.
Be the light.....
Happy 4th of July to you and yours....may you see the fireworks and feel the love of the light!
Many blessings, darlene
