Sky Messages.

SpiritColleen HanneganComment

I can't always interpret, exactly, what I know when I feel a message coming to me from out there. There's this sort of thought cessation, or better said a yielding of random thoughts  before I sense it. Like the singing bird's silence just before the earth shakes. It feels like my higher Self reaches for the chalkboard eraser and clears away the old stuff and nudges me to pay attention. No words, just feelings. Get ready. 

Just before the morning light changed into a glowing golden yellow though my entire upstairs bedroom window, I'd opened my eyes and awoke with a feeling that I should pay attention to the morning sky. Being a morning person, and often tuning in to the magic hour of dawn, I find my greatest peace and silent seductive pull of Spirit at this time.  I reached for my eyeglasses and stood up to peer over the half opened window blinds. Facing east, the passing clouds and blue and yellows were dancing across the sky as the sun made its way up.

The light was different, coming into my room. I looked over at my husband and said, "The light is so unusual, it's making everything golden in here!" 

I left the upstairs bedroom to see how the sun was playing out across the rest of the sky from the back of the house. That's when I saw a section of rainbow behind our home. The sky was showing off with bright colors and clouds and I seemed to be the only one up on this Sunday morning last week.

I grabbed my iPhone and walked out front, still in my nightgown. My photo barely captured the immensity of the rainbow, it's intensity of bright colors and then a double rainbow appeared, which I captured on video. It was so silently amazing.

The biggest and closest rainbow I've experienced thus far. No neighbors were outside. It was all I could do to keep myself from knocking on their doors at 7am to have them get a look. We don't know each other well so seeing me standing at their front door in my nightie would have been weird to say the least;  a more lasting impression than any rainbow.

Besides, this was my rainbow and it was perfectly fine after all that I enjoyed it and had encouraged my husband to get outside for a quick look before it washed itself away. 

Others interpret their own messages into what it means when you see a rainbow, especially a double rainbow. A friend asked, "Did you make two wishes?" No. I never thought of that.

I just followed the glow.

 

 

 

Breaking Up with Worry & Rush

Colleen HanneganComment

Worrying and rushing don't work....anymore.... in my new life chapter.  They don't create what I desire and long to have in my life, they won't make more magic, they don't share love or heal wounds and heartache. Worrying is all about 'what if' and 'what if' is a poisonous additive to my daily desires.  'What if' is a phantom, an apparition that shows up like a ghost in my dreams, whose only duty  is to frighten me and keep me small in my expressions, childlike in my power and filled with fear.

Rushing is a fear of not getting what I want or missing out on a prize or side-stepping all the bits of synchronicity and bits of magic that lie at my feet and buzz around my head because I'm in such a hurry I don't see them.  To rush is to risk missing out on the serendipicious  treats that shower me with invitations to play if only I might pause and pace myself to see and receive. 

Worry and rush are no friends to me, though I'm completely guilty of trusting in both; often. They'll never fill my bank account, my dinner plate or my wardrobe closet.  I've come to recognize how much they've sucked the life out of me over the years. And maybe now I'm done with both of them so much so, that I just might try living without the two troublemakers. 

Confidence will be my choice over the worry bug and Ease will be my preferred style of motion. I'm inviting Synchronicity and Magic to hang out wth me every day.

I'm imagining a much better relationship with myself!

I took a moment here to look up a good quote on worry to add to the blog and this is what I found.

Bingo.

“According to Vedanta, there are only two symptoms of enlightenment,  just two indications that a transformation is taking place within you toward a higher consciousness. The first symptom is that you stop worrying. Things don't bother you anymore. You become light-hearted and full of joy. The second symptom is that you encounter more and more meaningful coincidences in your life, more and more synchronicities. And this accelerates to the point where you actually experience the miraculous.

Thanks Deepak! You expressed it so much better! 

I'll let you know what happens next as I open up to new friends Synchronicity and Magic.~~
