This week has brought several things in my life back full circle, in other words an opportunity for closure. Most of us have experienced things in our lives that we don't want to repeat.. Situations occur that we are so grateful when they are resolved...
When I was expecting our first child, about 19 weeks along, a MD suspected a significant problem. An amniocentesis was performed. I was really worried about complications and the possible outcome of a baby that would not survive after birth. I went home and was crying , when I heard a voice saying, " don't worry she will be all right ". I felt peace and from that point on I knew she would be healthy. This story has been shared with my children and friends. It was the first time that I heard a message of peace...
17 years later my daughter was looking for a syndrome she could present to a high school class. It needed to have relevance to her life. She happens to love science and plans to major in Biology when she moves on to college. I reminded her that years ago, it was suspected she had a life threatening syndrome. She and her study group choose this syndrome to present on. During the presentation she shared how it was part of her life story. She shared also how that experience brought our family peace..
This made me realize that very painful time in my life, has not only closed , but brought wonderful gifts. My daughter is thriving, and I love her ability to incorporate the spiritual world with the scientific world. I now recognize that situation brought to my awareness our ability to connect with the divine and find peace in the most difficult times.. I'm so excited to see how our daughter takes her awareness, compassion and intelligence out into the Scientific world. By the way did I mention she is beautiful also......
In closing I will say I am so honored and grateful for my three amazing children and husband. The life lessons that I share with them are all tied together with love.
One day we will awaken to the knowledge of our past.... not the past of this life, but the past of eternity. The very essence of who you are and who I am . When this day comes we will all join hands and come together as one. For us to see ourselves as one is the way to truth in this life. We are here to learn our lessons in this life that connects with all life. This supports our understanding of oneness, eternity, and the clarity of one. To understand fully this life you must become one with each other and one with the divine within. Thank you.
This is the possibility of love and divine peace for us all......
When I was in college ( a long time ago) I had a reading done. I went to college in Salt Lake City. The community was pretty conservative to say the least. Close to the college there were a few random stores. One of these housed a old gypsy type lady. She basically just set up shop in a space. There was nothing there but her. She would just sit and watch the people going by. I really wanted a reading done, but she was a bit spooky. I also did not have a disposable income. So for a long time I would just walk by as she watched me .....
Eventually I found a friend to go with me. He wasn't going to have a reading done, but he was there for support. I can't remember much of the reading , except feeling really disappointed. I didn't find out about true love or any of the things I thought important. I can only remember two things that she told me.... She predicted it would be many years before I would feel satisfied or content . Believe me this was not what I wanted to hear! The next thing I remember is her saying I would live in a place with dark mountains and water, but have a second home where oranges are grown. This sounded OK, but did't mean anything to me.
I went home rather disappointed. My friend thought it was hilarious. He drew a picture with an old women's craggy face and dark mountains in the back ground. I quickly tore it up...
That reading really did stick with me. It did not ring true at the time. I can tell you as my life unfolds it has been proving true. First of all I have been living in Alaska for over 13 years. I live by water, surrounded by dark mountains. I also did not find a peace in my life until recently. It's not that I was unhappy. I just had not settled into a knowing of peace. I have a deeper appreciation for life. I'm talking about the life that just is... The life that involves family, friends , chores, work etc etc . The real difference is, I'm not constantly striving for something more. I have it all.
The second home where the orange trees grow? I'm not sure how, when or where, but I know it's on the way!! When ever I travel to warm places, orange trees are always on my mind!!
What is your version of an orange tree?
