Friday-Bliss Kiss For Your Weekend

 

As your sweet delight to enter into your weekend…..bring to mind a time when you felt most alive, most vibrant. Where were you? Were you on vacation at an exotic destination or in your own back yard, feeling like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz chanting, “There’s no place like home.” ? Take a moment to look around in your imagination station and use all of your senses to drink in this time and place. Add color and sound to the mind movie. See who might be in your personal paradise with you. Be aware of how your body feels while you are there. Now, the beauty of this experience is that you are absorbing the awe and your body is likely feeling the sensations as if you are experiencing it in the moment. Our minds and bodies are so intricately linked that we can’t tell the difference. Carry this with you even if your current weekend plans are nothing more exciting than doing the laundry or mowing the lawn.

    Your words are wonderful, Edie, and many should benefit from them… and on a daily basis. As you said: “Our minds and bodies are so intricately linked that we can’t tell the difference.”
    Know this so well… and thanks for reminding us, and me.

Self Imposed Slavery
Tonight marks the first night of Passover which commemorates the journey from slavery to freedom of the Jews in Egypt who were compelled to work at the peril of their own lives.  Jews around the world (and others who are invited guests as they were in my childhood home) will gather to celebrate a

That's What Makes You Strong
  Another soul passed into the Light yesterday to join the celestial choir. I first heard Jesse Winchester's music in the 80's. As a consummate singer songwriter, he had  a gift for vivid imagery that took the listener along for the ride. Songs such as Mississippi, You're On My Mind,

Hot Air Balloon
Recently I was speaking with someone about the things that weigh us down, like a hot air balloon tethered to the ground with heavy rope, spiked into the dirt, sandbags reinforcing them.  Self deprecation, limiting beliefs, old worn out ideas that no longer serve, all of the shoulda /woulda/ coulda

  Chances are you have seen the commercial from back in the 80's  called This is your brain on drugs. In case you weren't yet born, check it out and in case you were old enough to remember it, here it is for your re-viewing pleasure.  Although I am drug and alcohol free (by choice and not
