Responding To The Call

Lately the line has been ringing off the hook with calls from the Universe that send tingles down my spine, buzzing in my ears, rattling in my bones (in a good way), hair standing on end, and  goosebumps on my arms which I refer to as my ‘truth barometer’.  I laugh when I wonder why I should be surprised since I asked for the calls to come in. When we issue an invitation to the Universe, why would we not expect a response?  They arrive at all hours of the day and night which is why sleep has been sketchy and sporadic and dreams have been vivid and profound. Once upon a time, these cosmic coincidences would have been accompanied by the theme song from The Twilight Zone and now they are just an ‘of course’.

The spirit calls have come in the form of invitations to travel and teach about life, the universe and everything, lessons in loving and letting go, in surrendering expectation for outcome, and being comfortable in my own skin, no matter what skin I’m in. These days I am making choices, not by default, but with conviction of the heart that all is well. Today I was filling my role as a therapist facilitating a group for folks who are in recovery from addiction. The concensus was that in order to maintain sobriety, they needed to KNOW that they are totally supported by the God of their understanding and that they have survived every challenge, trauma, issue and dark night of the soul through which they have trudged. Some thrive on chaos, some require fastidious order. In 12 step program, we speak of GOD as Good Orderly Direction that guides us through the muck and mire.

How will you respond to the  Cosmic Call?  Will you answer or tell it ‘no one’s home’?

What's My Motivation?
In the car today, which is where I sometimes do some of my best thinking, I was considering why one of my intentions/goals is to interview Oprah and Ellen (not just be interviewed BY them). I attempted to justify my desire by saying that they are self made (with support) women, that they built thei

Betwixt and Between
I had an interesting series of events over the past few days after writing a blog entry for The Huffington Post. It was called Why I Am Proud To Be A Total B*TCH!  As I was typing the words, I had a bit of trepidation come up and a sense of uh oh, should I be writing these words and validating wha

Child's Play
I've been thinking a lot lately about my childhood experiences, almost in a life review format. Chalk it up to turning 56 in a few weeks. I grew up in a two parent household, with a younger sister born 2 1/2 years afterward,  so I had some time with them and with my grandmother as an 'only child'

Sleepiphany
This being a writer brings with it a penchant for word mash-ups and unique configurations. Many in my life share that talent. Yesterday while perusing Facebook, I noticed a term coined by a fellow wordsmith Shawn Allen. He was commenting on having taken a nap and then awakened with what he referred

Love Poems to God
Words come from a Divine Source, as far as I am concerned. since my writing (as if does for other wordsmiths) 'writes me'.  It flows through me and not from me. There are times when I have looked back at journal entries or articles I have penned over the years and think "Who wrote this?  I don't r
