Was the Spirit Speaking to Me?

The Birds Sing a Song of Hope from Janice Taylor, Beliefnet Blogger.
I had the immense pleasure of attending my first Quaker meeting a few weeks ago.
As it was explained to me, Quakers believe that the “inner light of God” is available to all. The services are called “meetings.” Believers sit and wait in silence, open and ready to hear in the stillness the voice of the divine. Those who are moved by the Spirit are welcome to stand and share a word or two.
On this particular Sunday, three people were moved by the Spirit. One gentleman shared scripture; ten minutes later, another believer conveyed a philosophical thought, and twenty minutes later a third person stood – a woman.
She said that she was addicted to food, and while she was inspired by the meeting and filled with the inner light of God, she knew that it wouldn’t last. She predicted with certainty that she would go home, and at some point during the evening, spin out of control. Her sadness and despair were palpable.
As she spoke, a soft breeze made its way though the windows, carrying with it, the sweet sounds of chirping birds.
These words came to me.
The birds sing a song of hope, now.

I wanted to stand and say these words but thought better of it. After all, I was a visitor and these words were just my thoughts.
I regret this decision. Why had I dismissed the possibility that the voice of the divine was speaking to me? Would that offering of words have helped her?
And now, I am compelled to release these words into the universe. An offering to anyone who is feeling sad, overwhelmed or hopeless.
Remember …
The birds sing a song of hope, now.

Spread the word (NOT the icing!),
Janice

The Laws of Unattraction: Top 10 Appealing, Eye-Catching and Attractive Tips On How to STOP Being Unattractive from Janice Taylor, Beliefnet Blogger.
Chances are you’ve heard about the Laws of Attraction. The basic concept is that you attract into your life whatever you think about. Positive thoughts and beliefs create a positive life; negative thoughts and beliefs attract negativity.
One sure way to get those positive vibes swirling out there is to be attracted to yourself, in a healthy and self-affirming way (not in a narcissistic, oh my goodness, I’m the greatest ever, where’s the mirror – I need to look at myself again – kind of way). Truthfully, if you aren’t attracted to you, if you don’t fully recognize your qualities and embrace yourself, how attractive could you possibly be to the universe.
One thing we don’t want to do is throw a false blanket of positivity on top of a basement full of unattractive thoughts and behaviors. Let’s get in there, excavate, STOP ….. and make some mind-altering changes and create space for the positive life that we are craving!
