HEADS UP_mercury in rewind is an opportunity

“So how can we harness it? For starters, we can put this untapped celestial search engine to good use. If Mercury’s primary universal purpose is to teach us that knowledge is power, doesn’t it make sense that it only goes retrograde to remind us that ignorance is not bliss? It does to me, which is why I make a checklist of “Things-I-Absolutely-Need-To-Know” for each Mercury “rewind.” Trust me, you should too. It’s as effective as it is empowering. In fact, the next time Mercury goes retrograde, why not throw a little cosmic caution to the wind and get out from under that bed and start looking for something. Anything.” – Marguerite Manning … READ MORE …

30 November: course correction

“… The path of my life now is one that I had dreamt about, but hadn’t the courage to embark upon before. Interesting & good how the “be careful what you (dream) wish for” comes about. I hoped for a change in my tumultuous & topsy-turvy personal life in 2004 – even tho my showbiz career was booming – and the universe obliged me. The disabling and painful foot/leg injury allowed me to slow down, evaluate, contemplate, reinvigorate and redirect myself personally and professionally. Now I am calmer – braver – happier to do what I want personally, professionally, spiritually” … SEE/READ MORE…

BONUS P.O.V. on W.O.W.~5 stages of {letting go and} forgiving

a BONUS P.O.V. from a friend, eva la rue, that also affected me: “it’s not so much about somebody forgiving you or you going and saying ‘oh, i forgive them’ and ‘i forgive what they did to me,’ it’s about going in and actually saying to the other person, ‘how have i hurt you?’ even if you feel like you’re the one who’s been hurt, it’s letting go of your hurt for the moment and saying (or maybe letting go forever and saying): ‘how have i harmed you?’ because that makes the person, i’ve noticed, completely fall away. all the pretense all the anger all the resentment, it falls away. because we all really want somebody to say: ‘how have i hurt you?’ ‘what was it i did?” and ‘i’m sorry from the bottom of my heart.'” ~ SEE/HEAR/READ MORE ~

W.O.W.~5 stages of {letting go and} forgiving

I saw a video on youtube titled “Forgiveness and the Freedom of Letting Go” tonight and it reminded me of my journey to forgiveness. i began to sow those seeds in 2004 and it took me five years to really get it, to literally know it and to honestly feel it. now pretty much any time something adverse happens to me, i am able to forgive faster, move through the pain or disappointment exponentially quicker, and return to living in the calm and peaceful state of a quantum nowness i have created for myself.~sb

a little about “shakubuku~shakubuku~shakubuku”

“‘Shakubuku, literally means to “break, subdue.” Either break & subdue your deleterious cycles or you will be broken and subdued by it. Stop suffering and awaken to life’s potential.’
“i remember hearing about shakubuku and studying it at the kaikon in seattle during my buddhism days {i think i was about 5 or 6 years old} and i liked saying “shakubuku~shakubuku~shakubuku” – it had a sort of magical or mystical quality when inciting it & reciting it.
just a few years ago, i was reminded of its power & the importance of the message and so i invoked the words and the actions (à la “magic spell”) with regards to a certain someone who i allowed to interlope and wreak havoc in my life. the ~shakubuku~ worked!
today i thought of it again, and decided to share the power of shakubuku.” ~sarah nean bruce
