Tuesday's Healing Word Wonder

Wonder is a feeling of surprise mingled with admiration, caused by something beautiful, unexpected, unfamiliar, or inexplicable.  It is being open to the mysteries of life.  When we look at the grandeur of nature, it can move us deeply.  It is our soul’s appreciation for that which is precious and inspiring.

 “The more clearly we can focus our attention

on the wonders and realities of the universe about us,

the less taste we shall have for destruction.”

Tuesday's Healing Word-Liberate

Liberate or liberating is making you feel free and being able to behave as you like.  Author, Caren Goldman questions in her book, Healing Words for The Body, Mind and Spirit, “What keeps you so frozen in time that you can’t find the energy or wherewithal to break loose and be who you are now?  Is it an old tape playing back something belittling someone once said?  Is it self-judgment, doubt or criticism?  Is it a fear of change?”

To see your drama clearly

is to be Liberated

from it.

~Kahlil Gibran

Tuesday's Healing Word Surrender

Dr. Judith Orloff, an Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at UCLA, has helped patients find emotional freedom for over 20 years.  She shares the following, 4 Ways to Heal through Surrendering, in her book The Ecstasy of Surrender:

Tuesday's Healing Word Surrender

1. Surrender fear.  The mind has the power to think positively or negatively. The direction you choose can shape your healing. All thoughts aren’t created equal. Some, like fear, are more aggressive than others and take up more space in your psyche. If you indulge fear, a master seducer that preys on your doubts, there will be less room for hope, faith, and love.

 Tuesday's Healing Word Surrender2. Surround yourself with healing people.  People can affect our health in a positive or negative way.  To heal, surrender to those who are loving.  Surrendering to the love of friends and family has the power to make you feel good and soften pain. The more you absorb these vibes, the better you will be.

3. Prepare nurturing personal space.  Your physical environment affects your healing. Unclutter your home or recovery room. A serene, light-filled, uncluttered room provides the open space to get well. A dark, stuffy, noisy, chaotic environment is disturbing. It can slow your recovery because you’ll be spending energy fighting off unpleasant distractions and stagnant clutter.

4. Surrender to peacefulness.  Find a serene place in your home where you can rest and relax. Settle into the stillness as you surrender to the peace and beauty. No rushing. No pressure. Take your time in the space. Breathe in the sweet smells, admire the quality of light, the joyous flowers, the lusciousness of a bowl of fruit. Enjoy soothing music that inspires your healing. Create a sacred altar if this resonates with you and feels comforting. Meditate. Absorb the goodness, healing, and rejuvenation all around you.

Tuesday's Words - Experiencing Synchronicity

What is your experience with Synchronicity?  Do you feel when two people start to call each other at the same time…it is only a coincidence?  I can remember when I was a young wife and mother and lived several thousand miles from my Mom, almost every time I started to call her, my phone would ring and it was her.  Sometimes it would be reversed and I dialed first.  At the time, I wasn’t aware that I was possibly experiencing synchronicity.   Synchronicity is a concept, first explained by psychiatrist Carl Jung, which believes that such events are “meaningful coincidences”.

Tuesday's Words - Experiencing Sychronicity

“People love mysterious things, and synchronicity is like magic happening to them,” says Carolyn North, author of Synchronicity: The Anatomy of Coincidence. “It gives us a sense of hope, a sense that something bigger is happening out there than what we can see, which is especially important in times like this when there are so many reasons for despair.”

Tuesday's Words-Experiencing Synchronicity

“When you stop existing and you start truly living,

each moment of the day comes alive with the wonder and synchronicity.”

~ Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free

Tuesday's Words - Experiencing Synchronicity

“Synchronicity happens once you let the universe flow continuously through you,

not when you try to fit in its flow.”

~Roxana Jones, Spirituality & Personal Development Author

Tuesday's Words - Experiencing Synchronicity

I WISH YOU MANY SYNCHRONICITY MOMENTS!
