Encouraging Words

It has been an interesting two weeks, especially this last one. My astrology friend said there have been three eclipses in the space of a month, two solar and one lunar. This is very unusual and seems to have stirred things up – plus Friday was the full moon. Another friend said things should ease a little now – not a lot but some. And Mercury is going into retrograde in a couple of weeks – now is a good time to create and put things in motion. Since my knowledge of astrology, the stars and all things celestial is very sketchy, I am not really sure what all this means. I just know it has not been my favorite week.

I was glad to see my massage therapist back, I really needed some help.  I am feeling better and also feeling more comfortable and at ease with her so I can release and let go the stuffed feelings I have all packed up in my back and shoulders.  Debye is so loving and compassionate, non-judgemental – she keeps telling me she sees who I really am and I am beautiful.  Oh does that help!  I am very hard on myself and what I have learned is that I set the standard for myself so much higher than for anyone else – I realized I expect myself to be perfect, then beat myself up because I didn’t meet the standard.  I have heard that from several people and it is not only hard to hear, but hard to recognize to change it.  I am more than good enough and I am working on giving myself a break and loving myself exactly the way I am.  The good news is I feel it slowly happening.  I am also standing up for myself, beginning to take back my power.  How amazing is that!

However, the bright spots in my morning are the message from the Universe and my love letter from Easy World. I came across both of these and have found them very uplifting and even makes me chuckle at times.

I found the  notes from the Universe site through another website.  It’s called TUT and I signed up for it.  Now every morning I have a note that entertains and uplifts me no matter how I am feeling.  A couple of examples:

Through the prism of time and space, Lee, the scary stuff always looks scarier than it really is.

But this is offset by the fact that the great stuff is always greater… is frequently on sale, comes in more flavors, and goes with pretty much everything.

Please pass the Grey Poupon,
The Universe

Things are always better than you think, Lee.

WOW! Just checked in on your new very successful business, Lee! Love all the “bells and whistles” you dreamed up! Smokin’ hot!

Apparently, however, there’s some confusion over where the bouncy seat is supposed to go. So I just told them to put it in your world headquarters executive office, in front of the aquarium… beside the hammock… behind the popcorn maker.


You’re so cute,

The Universe

Your neighbors are going to flip, Lee, but then they probably expect this from you.

I found Julia Rogers Hamrick  through my sister Candy and  loved her Easy World.  I got on her mailing list and later she started sending Love Letters from Spirit – so many times it was exactly what I needed to hear right at that moment.  To give you an example or two:

Wondering who you are and why you’re here? I have left clues for you everywhere.. Just look around! And feel around. 


Your Spirit 

P.S. You might need to clean your glasses and increase your capacity for joy.

You know that thing you haven’t been able to bring yourself to let go of? Well, frankly, you’re not going to see me or feel me very clearly if you don’t go ahead and drop it. Thankfully, we put a safeguard in place a long time back to be sure I wouldn’t have to share space with stale, yucky “stuff.” So, please, just let it go. 


Your Spirit

P.S. I am standing by…

Relax and let me handle everything. I am totally amazing as an orchestrator of well-being and joy! 


Your Spirit

P.S. This does not mean you will not need to do anything–au contraire! You will need to act on my inspiration (be paying attention), which will be easy, harmonious and joyous!   Check them out and see what you think.  If you run across any others, please let me know.

    Hey Lee,

    I think Meilee Anderson told you I wanted to get acquainted. Been a long time since I’ve used “Meilee’s Mom” as an identifier! She thinks you are cool–and you have had a similar reaction to the RA support groups that I have had to the MS support groups. What seemed to be supported was the negativity! Not going there or doing that! Nice to see someone else with the same attitude.

    Since you are into alternative therapies I thought I should tell you about “Earthing.” Here’s a link: oops, if I go get it, my reply will go away–just google “earthinstitute” that should get you there. It is a relatively inexpensive way to balance your bodies systems. It has been shown to lower the pain for RA sufferers. I have ordered some of their products. They have been able to show it calms the brain–since my husband has a low grade anxiety issue we are hoping it helps him and my MS symptoms. Seems to balance whatever is out of whack!

    Encouragement can really lift the spirits–probably stimulates some endorphines, eh?

    Blessings, Carol Brown

    Here is the link for the “Earthing” information: http://www.earthinginstitute.net/

    I see it is “earthinginstitute” not just earthinstitute–need the “ing”!

    Hi Carol,

    Thanks so much for your kind words – it has been a week where they are very much appreciated. I’m so glad to know I am not just talking to myself, that what I write helps someone else.

    I quit watching and reading the news, too much negativity – not boarding that bus! I now find myself wanting push away negativity when I am with someone, not wanting to accept it any more. One problem is that we are so surrounded by negativity that we don’t always recognize it because it is too much a part of all we know.

    I will check out earthing – wonder if it means just playing in my muddle puddle or walking around in earth to connect with Mother Earth. It’s been cold and wet here, not conducive to playing in puddles barefoot.

    I look forward to getting to know you and maybe one day meet when you come to visit.
