Eye of the Storm: Sandy and Social Media

NOTE: Read the value of physical versus digital neighbors…

Psyche's Circuitry

As a resident of downtown Manhattan, my family and I were affected by Hurricane Sandy. But the worst that happened to us was losing power and water, and having to walk up and down 28 flights of stairs to get ourselves and our stuff out of our apartment so we could move to our dear friend’s apartment on the Upper East Side (where we are now totally safe and comfortable). Our kids feel displaced and are missing their routines and friends, and my husband and I are inconvenienced and feel, strangely, like tourists in our own city. But that’s the worst of it. This is obviously NOT a poor me story.

But this experience has opened my eyes to a few things. In addition to teaching me about the enduring kindness of strangers in this supposedly rude and impersonal digital age, this experience has taught me a few new things…

Look close and you will see nature’s exquisite paintbrush at work. Amazing colors and symmetry! Read “Discover the World Within” blog for some great insights about our interior life as well. Highly recommended by DeMysticWay.

Discover The World Within


“We can try to reduce the other to a knowable entity, or we can embrace her persistent mystery.  When we resist the urge to control, when we keep ourselves open, we preserve the possibility of discovery.”

Love Wisdom from “Elena Undone”

10 day old dolphin says hi to a baby penguin
Young love is forever.

After watching a small independent movie recently, Elena Undone, I was struck by the underlying theme that spoke to me on a very intimate level and I felt moved to copy down some of the “love wisdom” it contained.  Starting with, “In love, one and one are one!” It’s this all-encompassing love that we all hope and pray to appear in our lives…but are rarely prepared for it when it happens, and, it does happen.

I’ve written about the concept of Twin Flames; this movie languaged it in a way that was profound and dead-on…

Here are the Ten Signs to look for in what the movie calls the “Ultimate Love Connection”:

  1. It may come in an unusual, unexpected package –not what we think we’re looking for or even believe we want.
  2. These people may meet “randomly”.
  3. Everything seems brand new, but absolutely familiar.
  4. While your worlds seem utterly disconnected, the paths that you’ve individually taken bring you together at freakish randomness.
  5. This person makes you see the world through a different filter.
  6. As hard as you try, this person is living in  every corner of your mind.
  7. When you kiss, it’s like you live inside that kiss forever, but yet it feel brand new.
  8. You are desperate to be with them and you will move heaven and earth to do so.
  9.  Even with challenges seemingly insurmountable, true love will find a way.
  10. This connection has changed you, significantly altered you–to the core!

Another great quote: “The definition of a miracle is when God gives you a choice and you make the right one.”

There’s much more to be gained from watching this movie and I really hope you’ll give it a chance. More importantly, give yourself a chance, take off the old filters and open yourself up to the possibility of find love!


Lifemates in the New 5D Reality

Life is full of surprises, make them happy surprises!

What is the “ideal” lifemate” for a Fifth Dimension (5D) relationship?

The short answer: Lifetime is relative, focus on the now.

The somewhat longer answer is that for a relationship itself to be 5D, both partners must be firmly committed within themselves to living in the new reality with a 5D focus.

If one or both are still transfixed by 3D realties, it’s not possible to have a long-term, mutually productive relationship in the 5D–even if both “want” it. Perplexing as it may be, it’s not a “punishment”–with the suffering that will surely be commensurate. It’s just the additional “weight” (or wait) that the 3D world has, keeping it separate from that of the 5D one. Too many of the underlying motivations to let go of for each individual to do before a 5D relationship is possible.

This is not to say that it is impossible, just improbable for both to do in the short time that you have to establish a meaningful couplehood. So, look first for another 5D person, then begin the dance of intimacy, which is necessary for a satisfying and lasting relationship to emerge with the potential to last a lifetime.

Remember that in the 5D reality, it’s difficult to focus on a lifetime commitment when each of you is focused in the moment. The duality inherent in this 3D reality that each of you continues to inhabit which that still exists, will exerts “pressure” to value the past and the future–not so much in the 5D, the new reality.

This may be complicated, and often heart-wrenching, for you. So much of this world is still rooted in the physical (3D), The more spiritually-based 5D world requires a different viewpoint and yet you will remain physical as you continue to grow and evolve. Finding a lifemate maybe a goal, but try not to compromise in finding one who will be by your side, as you will on theirs. Do this with love, faith and joy, for that is what and who you really are.

Perfection of Beingness and Creating Reality (excerpt)

We are here for exactly the time and reason that we designed for ourselves prior to coming into the physical. No more and no less. All is perfection of beingness and this fact is difficult for you to accept. Be with this thought for a moment, try to understand that what we think we want and what we desire may be at-odds with each other, in concept and in practice.

Now, go deep into your inner being and ask for guidance. Why am I here? Why do I think that there should be more to this life that what it appears to be in my experience of myself? Why must there be so much suffering in the world…in my life? Is suffering necessary to my existence? These questions are difficult to delve into at first, but if you let that inner knowingness that you have within you percolate up into your outward knowingness of who you are in this physical lifetime, you will begin to understand the greater purpose that we have come forth to experience and the answer to the `meaning of life’ will become much clearer for you.

Keep asking difficult questions and continue to be open to the answers that emerge from deep within…and most importantly, trust those answers as being valid. To the extent that you can accept the perplexing answers to these time-honored questions, you will have a better understanding of all that you `remember’ about past lives and how that fits into your overall purpose in this, the most important lifetime. Not because you are more important now, more than those `other’ existences, but because it is in this now…this moment…that you are, you live and breathe here and now. This is the only really important point. The past, whether it was a minute ago, or a hundred years ago, or a hundred lifetimes ago, in this life, in this moment, you are simply, ineffably, indescribably, you and none other.

Once you understand this, once you fully comprehend the magnitude of that statement, I am that I am, you will ‘get’ it. And, that `it’ will be different for each of you as much as it is the same. For each of you is a distinct and radiant part of the whole, the oneness, the Divinity, which exists simultaneously in each of us, just as it is the sum-total of all of us…of the Universe in a single point of light! How wonderfully delicious is that? You are that. You are perfect, just as you are in this moment!


The rest will be in my book, Lost & Found…please stay tuned and feel free to add to the conversation!
