Kitties! & Reincarnation.

Standard

We have new Kitties: Link and Magick, both boys 🙂 

Brian and I took a trip to my hometown to get these kittens from my Godmother. They had a litter of five kittens. Brian and I had been talking before that if we ever got new kittens, we need to get two at a time, and the idea was both males. This was so they would end up like being like my in-law’s cats who are

  1. Affectionate (Males are more affectionate)
  2. They would be cuddle buddies and playmates always.

The kittens were originally living outside, and we chose the most affectionate out of the bunch. We were told Magick was a girl, so we actually picked her out anyway. What I truly wanted was a black cat, so I could be like a good witch with a black cat 🙂 Brian’s mom was very upset when she found out we took a girl and a boy.

We didn’t find out he was a boy until I took them to the vet yesterday for all their expensive shots. But they are worth it.  ❤ 

Do you believe in reincarnation?

Animals have a tendency to reincarnate towards us.

My cat Darlen passed away about a year and a half ago. She was my soul mate cat since like I was 10 years old. But she didn’t have an easy life, with surgeries from ulcers, and my dad declawed her when she was young. But we loved each other fiercely. It was very hard to let her go.

I told my husband since then that, although we had an older cat (his cat) named Eesha, she did not connect with me the same way of course. And Eesha doesn’t liked to be picked up, and doesn’t cuddle that much. For many reasons, I wanted a kitten to start over kind of finding my soul-mate kitty again. And Brain understood…. but money. 

Luckily we have credit cards. 

My cat Darlen I got from my Godmother’s litter many, many years ago. (She often has cats). And when a new litter came around this time, she posted about it, showed me pictures, and I was intrigued. Yes, it would be money that we didn’t have at this time. Yes it was a new, big step. But, we’d talked about having kittens and I was drawn to see them because one was a black cat – what I’ve always wanted! So I wanted to go to see how they reacted to me. 

We eventually took the two most affectionate cats who came up to us multiple times and was willing to cuddle. ❤ 

The thing is guys, my Godmother is a psychic medium who channels higher beings. After we chose our cats, the very next day, she confirmed that two of the cats we took were reincarnated animals coming back to us. Link was Brian’s old dog named Jenny, and Magick was indeed Darlen!! I thought so! I was so excited to find out the truth, because his mannerisms are the same, as well as the look in his different-colored eyes.

I have my soul-mate cat again, my friends!

Whether you believe in reincarnation or not, it’s a nice story. If you don’t believe yet, maybe do some research and see if you’re drawn to it.

We love our new, energetic kittens!

Have you Experienced this with YOUR animals? Feeling a connection to them when they pass and you eventually get a new animal?

 

Namaste with Love,

Sleep Paralysis

Standard

I wanted to make a quick blog about my experience last night.

I spent about 30 minutes to an hour in sleep paralysis right after I fell asleep. It’s strange to explain what exactly it is, if you haven’t experienced it. I was trying to tell my husband about it, but he didn’t make many comments. But he was also tired/ watching TV, but I don’t think he knew what I was talking about. This isn’t the first time in my life I’ve experienced sleep paralysis of course. But many people do, so I wanted to explain this experience and give you advice about what to do if you’re stuck in this situation.

Wikipedia says its “a phenomenon during which an individual is unable to move during falling asleep or awakening, but is aware of their surroundings.”

It’s an out of body experience, when your soul or astral body is outside of your body, yet sometimes you can feel like you’re in your body, but you still can’t move. Your brain is aware you’re laying there. Sleep paralysis isn’t always bad, as it means you’re in your astral from and can travel without the need for your body.

In this particular night, my astral body was zooming around, yet it was extremely uncomfortable. I felt like I was falling from great heights, in and out of black holes of the universe, but it was all very unwanted and made my heart race.

questionable black hole

I heard a voice. This negative energy was around me, and I believe it was holding me down. It imitated my dad’s voice. But it wasn’t him.

For what felt like a long time, I realized that all of this uncomfortable-ness was going on, that it was a horrible “dream,” that I wanted to wake up.

The strange thing about last night was, I had to fight my way out. I was having the uncomfortable presence on me, hearing my dad’s voice but not him, in a menacing, mocking language, angry presence… and for some reason I knew I had to get my backbone if he was to leave me. Once I had this epiphany, I pretended I had muscles, shouted back at the angry presence to leave me alone and whatever else I said. I made myself barge into it, attack it, fight with it. I would say flesh against flesh, but in a spiritual sense. Obviously we’re not physical beings at this level.  I felt this.

It only took a moment of me fighting, and I knew I fought back the presence… demon, whatever you wish to call it. It was gone. Somehow inside me, I knew that would work right before I did it. And then, I was awake.

Many might experience this kind of sleep paralysis. Think about it. Some people, like my husband, may never. Those of us closer to the spirit world who have experience out-of-body-experiences, might have them moreso. Imagine how many people might experience this, but never write about it. Well, here I am writing about it.

If you are not careful, once you break out of the paralysis, it has the ability to come back when you fall asleep again. But I knew how to prevent that from happening.

I was freaked out a bit, and so very tired. I got out of bed and went to the bathroom. I hand not been asleep an hour. Then I called upon my spiritual protections, Jesus, Michael the Archangels, Mother Mary, my Guardian Angel… you can call whoever you feel will protect you. (It’s okay if you don’t believe in these beings I called.) I called them in and asked for protection while I slept, and the ability to fight off any negativity that comes my way. I prayed to sleep in peace the rest of the night.

It worked. I slept without a problem. In fact, I didn’t remember I had this sleep paralysis until a moment ago, when I recollected it. And I was like… “Wow, that was real.” I knew it was something important I had to share.

Spiritual protections are so important!

  • Imagining yourself in a bubble of pure white light, made of the Creator’s spirit, who can handle anything and protect anything trying to harm you.
  • Envisioning shields of protection around you.
  • Programming a crystal to protect you or your sleep. (You can program a crystal to do anything for you, really.)
  • Lighting smudge/dried sage in the house clears the negative energies.
  • Lighting candles.
  • Communicating with your angels and spirit guides. Imagining your spirit form strong. Feel it.
  • Call in your Power Animals to fight with you, such as the Tiger or even a Dragon.

angel light

These are all good forms of protection, to get you started. It chased away the “Demon,” or whatever you wish to call it, that attacked me while in sleep paralysis.

If you have any questions about how to do these spiritual protection methods, ask me. I know I didn’t go into a lot of detail with this. But I plan to go more in depth later in my blogs, as the need arises. But I’m perfectly happy to give you the information I know if you are asking for my guidance.

Just leave a comment.

And… have you ever experienced something like this? Let me know.

Namaste, With Love.

Rabbit Hole of Mindfulness

Standard

+I have a few meditation apps, one called Calm and one called Aura (both free versions, of course).

16 - DSC_0955.jpg

Me doing some yoga with my friend Melissa as photographer. We actually went to a free yoga session after this in the RR Park in Birmingham, where she lives!

Calm mentioned something to me last time that stuck with me, and that is being mindful of the present instead of focusing on invading thoughts. I used to think – but why would I focus on mindfulness if I don’t want to be here in this situation? Usually I could take myself away with happy thoughts and daydreams.

But I start to realize that they mean mindfulness as an escape from nightmarish thoughts, the ones that get you in a negative state and poke at you eternally.

Lately, I’ve been dealing with co-worker issues. I am a friendly person, I swear, who always tries to do my best and be professional and be happy. But some personalities clash, and some people have different ideas on what is professional, and some people are two faced bitches.

(Yes, bitches has become my new favorite phrase lately, kind of makes me feel cathartic. Yes I’m a spiritual person, and it actually releases some stress when I say the word, so there!! lol)

Also, to be clear, I work in events where different people take charge and be the head House Manager for certain events, but lately everyone tries to take charge over other people, and it just doesn’t work. What is most annoying is, we are not working as a team when we should be.

We are talking behind each others’ backs, annoying the hell out of each other in person, and then smooth our faces several minutes later and pretend it didn’t happen, but continue to talk about each other. Does it sound like women to you? Yeah, it doesn’t help that in my department we’re mostly women. Apparently women who have trouble with team work.

I really don’t know what it is with certain people, or in my case certain co-workers, y’all. My husband says he works with mostly nice people, while my mom has had social problems at work all her life. I never thought I would have the problem myself, but there you go. I have a friend at work I can share my thoughts with, and she’s completely on my side, and thinks these certain people are weird, and rude, and those that just like to be in control and won’t have it another way. Won’t admit they’re wrong for anything.

(Which brings me to another tangent that whenever I’m in charge, I take the blame for whatever wrong occurs because guess what? I probably didn’t communicate clearly so something went wrong. Therefore, it’s my fault. I’m imperfect – I learn from it for next time. But if you’re in charge and don’t take the falls, then that’s an immature way to handle things. In my opinion.)

You can tell I’m dealing with stuff. And I find that these certain PEOPLE kept creeping up in my thoughts, and certain dang SITUATIONS replayed in my mind, whether how it turned out or how I would want it to turn out or… on and on and on.

So I’m realizing… oh, so MINDFULNESS is being in the moment, noticing what is happening and being more of an observer. Kind of taking out emotional reactions. But also being in the moment and with the people I’m with, (or with myself if I’m at home and ruminating), and not thinking about those replaying thoughts.

So, I’ve been trying to push the thoughts that make me feel negative away. Trying to replace it with positive ones, like concentrating on my goals, or thinking of my husband, or even general things like fairies and nature. Looking out a window at the sunshine.

BECAUSE if I don’t push out the thoughts, than those negative people and situations have taken control of me, have dominated me (probably how they wanted to dominate me) and I ALLOWED IT!!

So thought-control/mindfulness in this manner is one step that I’m taking, and one that will take a lot of PRACTICE. (Just like yoga is a forever practice.)

Another step I’m taking is prayer. Repeating affirmations about my life, my work, and my goals to Goddess/God, Angels, and the Universe. How do I want to solve this? What do I want my next steps to be? Can I pray to clear out of my life those that affect me negatively? It couldn’t hurt. Once you learn your physical lesson, that problem fades out of your life anyway. And I am certainly learning in this situation.

Practice.

Breathe slower.

Focus on mindfulness.

Vanishing thoughts.

Only pleasant thoughts.

 

Namaste With Love,

Reminisce of Our First Date & LOA

Standard

Lately I feel running around and stressed. I obviously haven’t had much time for writing, although I wish it were different. I think April will be an easier month where events are concerned at where I work, so maybe a little breather coming my way!

For the past few days, I’ve been celebrating my husband’s birthday, as well as the first day we met. His birthday is the 28th, and three years ago we met on the 27th in person. We met online at first, can you believe it? And now we’ve been married 10 months!

Wedding smile

Before I met the love of my life, I’d always dated guys that I met on free online dating websites because I went to Wesleyan College, the first college to grant degrees to women in 1836, and still an all-women’s college. I had to meet men somehow. 😉

I set out that “this time” after breaking up with my non-committing bf of 4 years, that “this time,” I would find the man of my heart’s core, the one I would marry and settle down with! I wasn’t going to stop until I found him, and I wasn’t giving up. Each guy I went on a date with, I became more and more specific with what qualities I wanted. (For instance, someone once drew to my attention that not everyone loves animals, and he didn’t care for my cat and… well… what?! Who could not love animals? Nah, never saw him again. Updated my online dating profile: My guy must love animals.)

I kept putting out to the universe each detail I wanted in a man! I was used to doing this spiritual process of the Law of Attraction, actually. I’ve always been able to land the guys that I called for with the exact qualities I asked for… just also with qualities I didn’t ask for. So I tried to make this marriage-relationship I tried to find incredibly detailed and not missing anything. Let’s just say the Universe brought me exactly what I requested!!! He’s the perfect man for me and he’s my soul mate, which is exactly what I searched for! There may be a few details I did not think about to ask, but it’s perfectly fine because we’re meant to be and we’re so in love 😀 We got married last May 21st.

I always recommend online dating to people, but I also recommend being detailed and sending out in your mind, projecting to the Universe, to the Angels, to the spirit of the Goddess-God, praying about what you dream of.

My husband and I met in the middle of where we lived, in a lovely coffee shop in Atlanta. He sat outside and had a red rose for me. My heart was beating fast as I realized this guy was HANDSOME and ROMANTIC… I might not just let him go. 😉 After two hours of talking, I asked him what time he liked to eat dinner. Then we walked and found a fancy pizza and wine place and enjoyed ourselves there till our midnight walk on the bridge together. We were actually too nervous to make the first move to kiss that night, as we waited for the other to make the move, but when he walked me to my car, I did ask him when I could see him next. Which I hadn’t really done (or followed through with) any of my previous dates. I knew it was right.

I proceeded to meet him and his family at his church (the one we ended up getting married in). I consider him and his family to have more spiritual/new age views, like I do, yet they go to a Lutheran church. We go? Well, Brian and I haven’t actually been in a long time, not too often since the wedding, since the two pastors moved on. Our schedules have changed a LOT since then, though, with his promotion and my new job. So, we don’t exactly get Sundays off anymore. (Why do people want events on Sunday mornings anyway??) The church wasn’t as important as community and family time, although it can be fun, even though I prefer Unity Church myself if I get to choose a church.

Anyway, we like to reenact the first day that we met every year, nice romantic gesture. It’s stressful when our jobs pulls us in separate directions, but we always find our way together and our way back to each other 🙂

Now, I need to make goals to do more yoga because I’ve been feeling out of wack when I don’t have enough time but a few dismal stretches a day. I need to make time to write, and read, and meditate. Time is all, and time is nothing. All is well, and all will be. 🙂

More later!

Namaste,

I live for…

Standard

heartlive

Sometimes I have to think… what keeps me going? Why am I working so hard? All for what? It can’t be money. More like, memories to make with spending the money. It can’t be just for survival. It has to be about relationships with the beautiful people who have touched my life.

I live for those moments that I can spend with my husband. He is my love, he is my life, and after life. Our jobs do a good job at separating us sometimes, but we got to spend some time together these past few days, and the memories are something to keep in my heart! ❤

I live for the chance to breathe in nature. Not when it’s freezing outside, like today. But I’m living for the expectation that spring is around the corner. Living in the southern state of GA in the US, I am absolutely grateful that spring and summers and fall are usually quite warm seasons! (And in this years’ case, winter too…but today is freezing.)

I live for the chance to continue to travel the world! I love to travel – I’ve been to many places in the US, including California, and New York City, Hawaii, Alaska, and Florida… but there’s still more to see! I’ve been to several places outside of the US, too, like Mexico, Canada, Jamaica, Honduras, England (my favorite!), Germany, Russia, Sweden, Denmark and more. Many of these places I’ve only experienced briefly on a cruise. So I’d love to spend more time in Europe in my life! I have a love for England and Ireland, and I took French, so I really want to visit France. My family has Russian and German roots, so I went to spend more time in these places, too. Also, I love to travel to the beach! I live hours away from one, now, unfortunately. But maybe one day I’ll move closer to one again–or even the mountains! Who knows where the future will take us for vacations or  beyond?!

I live for the time I’ll find my kitty soul mate again. I had my Darlen, my Siamese, my precious cat who was with me most of my life and the companion exactly matching my soul, and one whom I could trust dearly. She passed on before Brian & I moved to our beautiful home and got married. I always told her when she passes on, her soul needs to find me again in reincarnation. After her passing, I realized that maybe she’s happier being body-less? She had a lot of problems and surgeries in her time with me. She lived to be 14. So maybe it’s a selfish thing to want her back. So maybe another animal soul mate will come to me? I truly miss the companionship. We have Brian’s cat Eesha who likes me enough, but the connection isn’t nearly as strong. She scratched me deeply once, and I still have a scar. (I didn’t talk to her for like a month.)  Brian and I hope in the future to get two cats who love each other, (kind of mirroring his parent’s twin gold-point Siamese cats Rowan and Merlin), and we each get to name one cat. We’ve already picked out the names of our cats 😀 We’re waiting for more financial freedom available before we get these dream-kitties though.

I live for friends and family, present and future. I say this because I’ve always believed friends (and love) is the meaning of life. Those deep friendships. Many of my friends who I’ve been connected to for many years live two hours away. One won’t even visit my house because she has bad asthma and can’t stand a cat. My friends are fantastic, but are not with me often. That makes me sad. But I do live for them, and also for the possibility of new friends in the future. I also live for my family in the respect of Brian is my love and we will one day most likely have children. We want children, just still not ready for them yet. Enjoying just being a couple. I’m not getting into the rest of the family to mention how grateful or not I am of them. Each person has a different story. In my mind, my story with Brain is the most important. ❤ (Ain’t I a ROMANTIC?! Lol I am, and luckily so is he.)

I live so that I can keep writing and get my novel published! Been working on this novel since I was 13 years old. It’s bound to be completely finished and published in some magical way soon… 😉 Hey, at least I got a poetry book out! Celestialk.weebly.com 😀 Self-published. Yeah, I don’t want to go the self-publishing route again, but we’ll see what the future holds.

I realize when I step back, I have a lot to live for, many memories to reminisce on when I feel like it, and so much to look forward to.

What are some things you are living for? What keeps you going? 

Namaste,

Dance ~ a poem

Standard
The Creator made all
this universe inhale life
and sat back to watch it play.
 
Now who pulls at the painful
strings to tug the Earth
to this unwanted dance?
 
~Celestial K.
Celestialk.weebly.com
earth dancingThis little poem says a lot.
I think of how this planet is so beautiful and has potential for such joy. But the way our lives are run have great flaws, and so everything can’t be the best it can be.
I am not deep into politics, and I don’t have ideas of how to fix government. I would, however, vouch for finding out who all, with war-ful hearts, are causing the injustice, un-peace,  dissatisfaction, and unfairness in our world, and then replace them with people who care about:
1) The planet Earth and keeping her healthy and happy and
2) The people and animals who inhabit the planet, and making sure we are also healthy and happy.
Different countries (and states) also run in different manners. But one that perhaps can relate is money. Through my involvement in New Age, I’ve listened to speakers and writers w ho have done the research and are convinced there is enough money in this whole world for everyone to have some and no one to go hungry. BUT the people with the power want the money, and don’t want to give it away. Do your own research and think what you will, but this is what I believe.
Despite all of that, I still think that most people are over-worked and underpaid. I say this through my personal experience and what I observe. We spend most of our lives working, and we absolutely must work to pay bills (unless you inherit money or are married to someone with money or something of that nature). And we work so much, often we forget that the most PRECIOUS thing we have on this planet is TIME with people we love! 
In my life, although  I completely love my careers now and the work that I do, I’m finding I’m not spending time at home and with my husband like I want. Especially my nights and weekends are taken away, because I work managing events, and many events are on nights and weekends! I do not want to complain, I just want more time with my husband and more time at home, and that’s something personal that I’m going to have to work through by projecting what I want for the future. That’s another good thing about creating your own reality… you find what you want and what you don’t want through experience, and then you have to take steps to change it. In my case, I’m not sure how I am going to create time for myself and my husband, but cosmically, what is supposed to happen will happen once I start creating the thoughts.
This is getting me into the topic of creating my own reality, which I should save for another day. If you have an interest in that topic, you can ask me about it, and/or I would strongly recommend the book: Ask and It is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires by Esther and Jerry Hicks. 
That all being said, there are MANY positive changes that Mother Earth needs to go through, and our lives needs to go through! But it has to start with us. Praying (like projecting your desires) is a power that we all have. If you want positive change in this world to take place with our leaders, our planet’s health, saving our animals, making a more fair work system or health insurance system or anything else you can think of… please pray with me on it. Project positive into the future.
Namaste!!
