“What if” We Stop and Breathe

“Fear is like a wildfire.  It starts in one place and then spreads rapidly, at times out of control.  It waits in certain spots, gathering oxygen and just the right conditions to spread some more.  Without the fuel, it cannot spread.

Your thoughts are the fuel.  Fear feeds on fear.  It naturally arises from your human instincts of safety and survival, but the human is a funny creature.  Unlike animals who respond only to immediate threats, humans are very good at going to “what if”.

‘What if’ can be helpful in planning, but it is a fear accelerant, like throwing gasoline on a fire.  Rein in your thoughts and become present.  Is there an immediate danger?  Deal with it after taking a breath.

If the threat is not burning down your door, take more than one breath and assess your thoughts before ‘hair on fire’ becomes your present behavior.  This too shall pass.  May this be your mantra as you find the place of peace within and flow with what the great drama of life presents.  What goes down must come up.  It is the law.

You are so very loved.”

After thirty years of teaching Inner City, Special Education students and forty-five years of metaphysical studies, I have decided to share my life's philosophical understandings on this wonderful website. For me, everything in my life has been a spiritual experience from being raised in an alcoholic household, to marriage and teaching, and finally caring for an Alzheimer parent. I have sought at least fifteen, personal psychic readings to try and assist me as a wife, teacher and caretaker. I want to share the wisdom that I have gained from following the valuable spiritual guidance from my inner knowing and from heeding the advise of channeled answers from trusted psychics. At almost 70 years old, I am writing, traveling and enjoying retirement in Florida.
