Guiding Thought

Love is Wholeness. The essence of Love is Peace. The essence of Wholeness is Unity. Your essence is Love, therefore, your essence is Peace; your essence is Unity. Since your essence is Unity, you share Love and Peace wholly. Knowing the Unity of Whole Love and Peace with All is the essence of holiness. Choose to be aware, to understand and to Know your Whole and Holy Self, which is Love.

Quick Check in

How are you? How is your Journey going? How is your life going? There has been a lot of high-emotion in the world, and here in North America, the past couple of weeks. A lot is going on everywhere. How are you doing? Stay grounded. Stay focused on the Real, the True. Keep your mind on the highest thoughts you can think, as much of the time as you can. Don’t let yourself be dragged or held “down”, keep lifting yourself and others “up”. We’re all in this together, and you’re no good to anyone weighted down in the lower-self of despair, hopelessness, grief, and worry. Keep on.


UGH. This Guiding Thought always (so far) confuses me. Do you feel this way? I feel a bit concerned sharing this sentiment; but…I’m not here to be disingenuous. I’m here to be real.

It’s like I understand it on one level, but I don’t understand it at the same time. There’s just so much to it, so many steps/sentences to go through to get to the end. And by the time I get to the end, I have forgotten everything at the beginning and in the middle. So I go back to the beginning to re-read, and remind myself what the beginning was, and then I’ve forgotten again by the time I get to the end.

So then I read it slowly, sentence by sentence, and do my little “check” (like, “yup, got that one”). But by the end, even though I can do a “check” with each individual sentence, I a) have no idea what I just read, as though short-term memory is completely inactive and b) I can’t do a “check” for the whole thing.

What’s the point of this?

I think it’s good news that I can give a “check” to each individual sentence. That’s at least a start.

I believe the “problem” is in bringing everything together. Which day is it that the Guiding Thought encourages us to unite fragments? Oh, yeah, the fourth day of each round. Well, here I am practicing it.

If each sentence represents a “fragment” and the Guiding Thought represents the “Whole”, then working through each sentence to a comprehensive understanding of the Whole in this specific Guiding Thought is a practical exercise in uniting fragments.

I wrote that feeling a little tongue-in-cheek (not sure you can “hear” that through sterile words, but the voice in my head was like–“yeah, right”, >rme-smh<)…but it might actually be accurate. I just got that nudge in my mind that says, “you’re on to something”.

My Inner Smart Ass hasn’t nudged me in a while. YAY. So glad she hasn’t abandoned me. Can’t say I miss her, but life sure is entertaining when she shows up.

Why- Healing (1.4.0)

Welcome to Journey of Healing! I am glad you are here. Are you ready to spend 40 days immersing your consciousness in thoughts of healing? 

I know 40 days sounds like a lot. And I suppose it is. But think about it: 40 days of nurturing and caring for yourself, being gentle with yourself, overlooking mistakes, giving yourself some slack (not being so hard on yourself), and generally being Truly nice to yourself, learning to be your Self. Now, doesn’t that bring about a grateful sigh? Oh yes.

To begin, the first step is to think about what this Journey means to you. Why do you want to do it? Is it about healing the body? Healing the mind? Moving body/mind into greater alignment with Soul? Whatever that is for you, take a minute to write it down.

As for me…

I was going to write a long expose about Oneness and Unity, and about how “True Healing” is really leaving behind perception, so that Oneness and Unity can be experienced beyond perception

I was going to write a bit about the need for Faith, and how the previous Journey increased my faith in Faith, and how that was brought about through some serious letting go and releasing…

I was going to write about how healing is connected to forgiveness, how the world needs SO MUCH healing and forgiveness, and it’s up to us

I was going to write about how it takes as much time and energy to invoke healing for the 7.5 billion people on the planet, as it does to invoke healing for just one’s self, or for just one other person, so, why not always invoke healing for everyone?

There was so much I was going to write about why I am doing this Journey, and what it means to me.

But then flippantly, I inserted that silly face above (which is a good representation for how I generally feel starting every Journey–a mix of “oh my God, am I insane?” and “OH YES, I am ready for this!”– and wrote a completely unplanned paragraph.

When I finished that paragraph, I knew. That’s it.

This is why I am doing Journey of Healing:

40 days of nurturing and caring for myself, being gentle with myself, overlooking mistakes, giving myself some slack (not being so hard on myself (really, I need this)), and generally being Truly nice to (and patient with) myself, learning to be my Self.

Simple. No big hopes, dreams, or goals. No pressure. No expectations. Just nurturing and caring for myself and being gentle with myself…

I really can feel a grateful sigh ripple through my whole body and being.

Whatever your reasons for spending 40 days focused on healing, I am glad you are here. I always invoke your healing, as I am doing these Journeys, so your intentions–whatever they are (given to Divine Light, for Divine Purpose, for the benefit of All) will be empowered.

We are all in this together. Every effort matters. Thank you for your contribution.
