‘Kneeds’

Ever take time to consider how blessed you are? When I experience spiritual amnesia, I too forget. At the moment, I have my left leg propped up on a pillow, since it has been crying out for my attention over the past few days. I had knee surgery a few decades ago following a torn meniscus and still feel tweaks and twinges. I walk a lot and work out on the elliptical, cybex and bicycle at Planet Fitness. According to Louise Hay, knee issues are about fear of moving forward. I consider that on target for my life circumstances at the moment. There are so many opportunities that are presenting themselves for my perusal and I honor them all. I know that I want to progress, and take my creative work to the next level, AND there are times when I feel myself frozen and distracted. It occurred to me that knees are about ‘needs’ as well and I have for too long, been ignoring my own needs, believing erroneously that I am so self sufficient that I don’t need support from anyone. Lately, I have been asking for support from the Universe and the people in it and the response has been a resounding YES! So, what keeps me from asking more often?  Again, erroneous belief that I don’t want to inconvenience other people (heaven forbid!) and yet, I sometimes feel as if I have a swinging door (think Western saloon) that people move through with regularity that has me dancing too fast to keep up with the expectations.

Perhaps another metaphor is the idea of getting down on my knees in gratitude for what IS working in my life and things that are as I would have them be. I have a huge list and just this weekend, was playing the “How much more blessed could I be?” game.  At every turn, I found myself attracting perfect parking spots, prizes, and ‘chance’ meetings with new friends. I have continued it today and at the moment, am sending that energy to my knee.

I am feeling exceptionally blessed that I can stand, walk, dance, stretch, do yoga even in the midst of the ouchies. I am grateful for an abundance of love, family, friends,  as well as work that I love that sustains me every which way imaginable.

I will listen to my knee and follow its guidance about ‘kneeds’ that are going unmet in my life.

Hurt People Hurt People?
Lately, I have been pondering this conundrum: Why do people make violence acceptable? I see so many photos and videos of people hurting animals and people, images of abuse that whoever shot the films somehow think is cool. I understand why folks post them so that someone can identify the perpet

Make Your Life Spectacular
    A few days have passed since the world heard the devastating news that someone who entered their lives and lodged in their hearts (even if they never met face to face), had succumbed to the depression that had followed him for much of his life. When Robin Williams died, so too di

When Lives Touch
    I have been pensive lately for many reasons. The first is that I am still in relatively new life renewal mode. Two months ago, I was lying in a hospital bed with all manner of accutrement attached to my arms; beeping and chirping away. A pin hole was poked into my right wris

Good Morning, Robin
      It's now 5:20 a.m. and I've been awake for nearly an hour. Like most who heard or read the news yesterday that one of the most prolific actors and comedians 'left the building' by his own hand, I have experienced a myriad of emotions. My initial reaction- as my fath
