Contemplations for the Spirit

Random Angel Card Draw:  

Faith – Transformation – Efficiency – Inspiration.

How do these words fit into the phrasing of your personal story? Is there a way you can work these characters into your current plot? Or have they already forced themselves into your storyline? All or none, only one, or strike out?!

As an unexpected bonus, this snap gave us a little something extra to contemplate…Do you see a Heart or an Angel reflecting the Light above it? What color are your glasses today? Are you focused, with clarity?

I’m a little fuzzy, the extra wattage of a rosy glow lifting me upward.  Oh the power of technology with all its tentacles outreaching & the Human Mind with its Three Eyes…We are in broad & deep.

What say YOU, my Spirited Souls?  We have no choice but to participate, some how, some way.  Are you in the audience, behind the scenes, or on center stage?  :)

Only a Creator Culture Can Save Us (Re-blog)

The Spirited Soul:

The Creative Force IS the Source. Please don’t out-source your Force!  The brilliant article to follow, by Damien G. Walters, is one that I’m happy to ”re-blog”. It addresses the topics that are close to my heart, to name a few: Creativity, culture, health & well-being; how one person can make a difference; helping others get in touch with themselves; following a dream; even quotes by Carl Jung & Einstein. Let me know what you think. ~ Maggie

I arrived in Leicester in the late ‘90s as a student, a year after losing my mother to cancer. Having little support, I worked my way through university as a street sweeper, a factory worker, a waiter, a barman, a door-to-door salesman, a cleaner, recycling operative and grill chef. I wanted to be a writer but that seemed like an unattainable dream at the time. A few years later I began working for Leicester’s library service as a literature development worker.

The first initiative I ran was a project to gather the reminiscences of senior citizens. There I was, in my mid-20s, in the meeting room of an older persons’ lunch club. I had a circle of…

Delighted to Support Desmond Tutu’s Forgiveness Challenge (Re-blog)

The Spirited Soul:

Forgiveness Challenge…What an inspiring, & necessary, undertaking for all humanity. There’s empowerment in forgiveness. Holding on to those traumas & emotions take a lot of energy from our system, poorly effecting our health & well-being. A Global effort towards forgiveness will have a ripple effect. I’m pleased to “re-blog” this article for its promotion.

I have found, though, that everyone’s healing process is a unique journey that can’t be forced or controlled. When the time is ripe, sustenance will be given, & received, in right & perfect order.

Blessings to all the struggling & Spirited Souls out there. Sending out compassion, with clarity & discernment for all. <3 ~ Maggie

The Spirited Soul:

Here’s a “re-blog“, something fun to explore for all you museum lovers! Please report back here any interesting bits you discover in your travels, virtual or otherwise. :) ~ Maggie

Unframed

At Unframed, the blog of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), curators, program directors, and other staff discuss the museum’s collections and raise awareness around the art scene of Southern California. You’ll read details on new acquisitions and personal takes on exhibitions.

The head of the Chinese and Korean art department, for example, offers a curator’s perspective on the Chinese Paintings from Japanese Collections exhibit, running through July 6. We also enjoy the behind-the-scenes posts complementing the work at LACMA, like this Q&A with teens on a Glenn Ligon exhibit.

National Media Museum

The National Media Museum in West Yorkshire in the United Kingdom focuses on the science, technology, and art of the still and moving image. On the blog, writers cover exhibitions and events and offer a glimpse into the museum’s massive archive of objects in its photography, cinematography, and television collections.

A Model Pipe-Cleaner: Field Fundamentals

Dr. Metz, my mentor & colleague, goes old-school-science-project in construction of the above model. (When in doubt, pipe-cleaners to the rescue! I love a simple visual, hand-crafted & color-coded)!

According to his Fundamental Field® Theory, our energetic system is organized like a large-scale atom:

  • Red represents the proton component (The Positive Pole);
  • Green, the neutron component (The Neutral Pole); &
  • Blue, the electron component (The Negative Pole).

In the hands-on application of the Theory, called Fundamental Field® Therapy, these well-known modalities are incorporated holistically into one: 

  • Red denotes reflex points associated with (Cranio-Sacral/Chiropractic Therapies);
  • Green, (Chinese Acupuncture/Jin Shin Jyutsu Points & Meridian Therapies); &
  • Blue, (Indian Ayurvedic/Modern Polarity Therapies of the Elemental Chakra System).

A 3-fer bargain…such a deal; your health & well-being could be the Grand-Prize Winner. :)

Today’s “Note to Self” (Energy Reflections)

All external ‘reality’ is merely a reflection of Energy manifesting in its various vibrations, forms, functions, & frequencies.

I embrace it. I have fun with it, while watching water droplets fall from my lashes.

I use it creatively, while keeping the illusion in its place. This plane is a playground of squeals & woes. Up & down we go. In & out the blow hole. Never a dull moment.

The Energy at the Source is the True Force with which to be reckoned, not pretty pictures & shadow plays. It is the constant & unchangeable Light which forever shines. What we experience here is just a fragment thereof. It is so much more. We are so much more.
