June 2020 Newsletter: We Can Always Dig Deeper

We Can Always Dig Deeper 

We are now all digging deeper than we thought we ever could

as we deal with, and come to terms with, what is happening to our lives.

This is a lesson that we should remember.

(This is the theme of my June 2020 newsletter message. Sign-up information is at end of post)

I am sure we are all looking forward to the day when we can be spontaneous and spread our wings again without fear – like we used to. But for now, our wings have been clipped because of the many limitations put upon us – just so that we can be safe. It’s unnatural, unsettling, and has created much upheaval in our lives.

If asked a year ago if we thought we would be able to handle the various challenges, disappointments, and the changes now thrust upon us it, we probably would have said NO, NOT AT ALL.  But we are – at least to some degree – and as best we can.

We may hate it all, want it all to be over, sometimes get angry, and/or are fearful about the future, but still, we are dealing with it – and all of us in our own ways, simply because we have no choice.

,All my writings are based in concepts from my books

Your Journey to Peace … “ About Book  here 

and “Why We Are the Way We Are”  About Book  here

(Book cover images below)

A few cute posts went around Facebook recently that went something like, “when asked in 2015 where you think you would be in 5 years from now, NO ONE would have gotten it right about what we are experiencing;” another one I saw said something like, “I KNOW I didn’t pray for, make a request to the Universe, or consciously manifest this.”

However, this has happened, and we are dealing with it – in different ways, to various degrees, and some days probably better than other days.

We have all had to dig in our heels and dig deeper for compassion, understanding – and patience, again, simply because we have no choice: it is our best option.

Digging deeper than we thought we ever could,

and dealing with, and coming to terms with, what is happening,

is a lesson that we should remember.

 Most of us would likely never have thought that we could manage the loss of spontaneity. With the isolation. Of not being able to regularly see, or hug, our loved ones. That we would be willing to adhere to social distancing. Get along without social functions. Of having to line up for groceries and necessities. With having to constantly disinfect everything. To wear, or see most others, with masks on. When looking down from above, it might look like a war zone or sci-fi movie here. It kind of is. And it is hard.

But we will get through it all. And hopefully for most of us, only mildly scathed. And for many of us, we will have a newfound appreciation for the small things in life, like spending quality time with friends and our loved ones in the simplest of ways. Eventually we will find a new normal in our lives, and we will be able to be spontaneous and spread our wings again without fear.

Our ability to dig deeper is a lesson we should remember and

bring forward with us when we are through all of this

to use in the future when any kind of disruption in our life occurs, or

fear about what is happening, or may happen, arises.

Because, We Now Know that We Can Always Dig Deeper!

March 2020 Newsletter: Gratitude: In Good and Challenging Times

With all the limitations recently put on us and the uncertainty of what our near – and not so near future holds, I pondered a while to come up with a message this month that was both sensitive and possibly helpful – to hopefully some of my readers.

I believe that assuring we remain grateful for what we do have helps us remain more balanced as we continue to work through all the restrictions put on us and the fears and frustrations many of us are dealing with.

(At the end are links to 2 guided meditations you might find helpful at this time. A recent one by Marianne Williamson to help us weather this challenging time – both physically and emotionally. And one by Louise Hay that focuses on gratitude).

Gratitude: In Good and Challenging Times

A little quote from Rumi, the 13th century Persian poet, expresses the power of gratitude perfectly. Gratitude seeps through any denseness created when we fall prey to low vibration thinking or ways of being and connects us to our heart-space. It bursts through any blocks we inadvertently created – like those caused by worry, fear, blame, anger, etc. that keep us disconnected from our heart-space.

Wear gratitude like a cloak, and it will feed every corner of your life. ~Rumi

Along with joy, freedom, and love, gratitude and appreciation are listed as the highest on Abraham Hicks’s Emotional Guidance Scale (1). And just like love, joy, and all the high-vibration attitudes, appreciation and gratitude send sparks of light, love, and healing to our cells, allowing for mental stability and feelings of physical well-being.

This helps us override as gratitude connects us to our heart-space, we are propelled into higher levels of consciousness. This helps us to override any habitual, negative / unhelpful thought, attitudinal, and behavioral patterns. Worry, fear, anger, blame etc. dissipate, and we see life with more clarity and from a more hopeful – and helpful perspective.

With clarity of vision, what we really need to do not only becomes clearer, it also somehow happens more easily. The cobwebs of worry, fear, anger, blame, and what if’s simply fade away. Clarity of vision is not a small thing – especially in these confusing and challenging times.

Gratitude does not come that easily to many of us, but there is much we can do to help bring feelings of gratitude and appreciation into our every-day life.

Cultivating Gratitude

Meditations

Louise Hay’s Gratitude Meditation is useful any time of the day. See Here

Marianne Williamson’s recent meditation aims to help us physically and emotionally in these challenging days by 1) infusing our bodies with protective and healing light; 2) waylay any fears we may hold about all that is happening regarding the corona virus. See Here

Newsletter December 2019, Symbols of the Holiday Season

Symbols of the Holiday Season

Here are a few sections from my December monthly message where I look at some of the religious symbols so common at the December Holiday Season time – and discuss their original meanings.

Most of us with Jewish or Christian backgrounds do partake in some traditions from our birth faiths that this time of the year brings with it.  Even if we are non-practitioners, the Holiday Season brings with in much joy, excitement, frenzied activities – and sometimes sadness.

Last year when eating Christmas Eve dinner with my sons it occurred to me that everyone whose birth faith was Christian will recognize Christmas – at least in one way or another – whether they even ever were practitioners or not. Although Hanukkah is not a main Jewish holiday, some non-practitioners born into the Jewish faith may also identify the season in their own way.

At the time the thought that came to me was that even a drunken person sitting at a bar alone at Christmas with no friends or contact with their family would at some point likely raise a glass to the person sitting beside him or her or to a passerby and say in a drunken slur, “Merry Christmas,” or some Holiday greeting.

There is a lot hype around the Holiday Season that is responsible for much of the focus on the externals of Christmas. But the season also brings with it much goodwill towards people – especially to those in need.

And unless we are overworked, get completely stressed out about it all, or are simply a bah-humbug person, it is a happy time with lots of good wishes all around and many fun-filled activities and gatherings.

It is our familial, generational, and cultural backgrounds
that keep us tethered to the traditions and symbols we hold dear.

The generations and centuries our ancestors spent commemorating these holy days is held in our cellular memories, and our cellular memories affect our DNA. This is why it is almost impossible to be completely non-affected by faith-based holidays.

And although the religious meaning of Christmas is to commemorate the birth of Christ, there are many Christmas traditions and symbols that don’t have a religious or spiritual meaning, like Santa Claus, but there are also many others that unbeknownst to us do.

The wreaths and evergreen Christmas trees, as well as the angel atop the tree are part of Christmas traditions that have deep spiritual meanings than many of us have lost touch with.

And in both Christianity and Judaism the giving of presents and the use of lights and candles have been a consistent symbol of the holy seasons.

Newsletter September 2019, I Have Evolved So May Have You

As I wrap up Book 2, Overcoming Unconscious Influences,*  of my new series I discuss some of the nuances to becoming our Best Self. I explain that we must not only forgive those around us for what they have or have not done, but we must also allow for them to have evolved past who they were then – just as we have likely evolved from who we once were. *(Title has recently been changed from Becoming Your Best Self).

Unless we see others as they are today – not through echoes of how they may have been in the past when they hurt us, acted badly, or they were negative, judgmental, or aggressive, we are keeping how they were alive in us. We are keeping the hurt alive in us, or, we are allowing the negativity they spewed a space in our being.

To evolve, we must relinquish our emotions and judgments around negative attitudes and behaviors: ours – those of others and those from both the present and the past.

We are living in a time of great evolution. Of personal, spiritual, and societal evolution. As individuals, we are meant to evolve. However, we all evolve in our own way and on our own timeline. And the social structures that support the ideas that flow out of evolutionary moves forward follow – at least in democratic societies.

As humans we have always longed for love, fairness, compassion, and inclusivity. It is a memory of what once was – before form. We have been frustrated why others can’t extend these, and baffled why society can’t create the structures that support them. Our frustrations reflect what we know can be, should be, but what is not.

Newsletter May 2019 – Inviting Grace into All We Do

Grace quiets our ego mind. This allows for our neediness, negative thought-patterns, and slew of constant desires to subside, creating space for personal and spiritual growth.

The purpose of prayer, meditation, and spiritual practices is to quiet our mind so that we can tap into the love, joy, and sense of peacefulness within. They connect us to our essence. And allow for grace to flow to and through us. However, we can find the love, joy, peace, connection, and allow for grace to fill us up in many other ways.

When we are joyfully focused, are able to awaken a sense of wonder, or bring an attitude of heartfelt service into whatever we are doing, what we are doing becomes like a meditation. We become open to receiving grace.

Eckhart Tolle tells us in A New Earth that “Expansion and positive change on the outer level is much more likely to come into your life if you can enjoy what you are doing already.”

Whatever we are doing at any moment in time can fill us with grace
 if we bring the right attitude to it.

Newsletter May 2019 - Inviting Grace into All We Do

In the East, it is the attitude people bring to what they are doing, not what they are doing, that is considered most valuable. They believe any task done with a loving attitude and proper focus is transformative, and if done with reverence acts as a kind of worship.

When we bring a sense of reverence to every day tasks we are embodying gratitude and humility. Gratitude and humility act together to quiet the mind so we can connect to our heart-space – our essence.

And it is from our heart-space that we can access joy and peaceful feelings, and arouse a sense of awe. It is where our passions arise from.

(Links to Subscribe to this Free Monthly Newsletter, to my Blog Pages, and About Books are at end of message).

Seva, or selfless service, is a requirement for those who participate in Ashrams, and the helping with the menial jobs of looking after the building and property is done in relative quiet. Most who follow this practice say they feel in a state of grace when doing their assigned task.

This is not only because they are working in a holy place already imbued with grace, but also because the mindful focus on the simple task quiets the ego mind allowing for connection to and opening of their heart-space.

An open heart allows for grace to fill it up. And when done with a loving and selfless attitude any act of service uplifts us spiritually, as it is a manifestation of our connection to the Universe and the Oneness we all share.

With the right attitude, any act of service can fill us with a sense of grace.

Newsletter May 2019 - Inviting Grace into All We Do

Working directly with the earth offers us great benefits. Field workers in the East often use their work on the land as a meditation bringing a sense of reverence/worship to the tasks. For them, it is not only a service as it is part of the chain of bringing sustenance to others, because as they lovingly connect directly to the earth, they are respecting the reciprocal exchange we have with Mother Earth that many saints, holy people, and the Indigenous peoples believe we share.

Still, we can derive satisfaction from, and find peace and cultivate joy in any type of work we do, because no matter what our everyday job or passion we bring forth, we are serving others in either practical or uplifting ways.

Doing tasks with an attitude of joy and service,
we are working from a heart-centered place,
which opens us up to the flow of grace.
 
Doing tasks rushed or with a begrudging attitude,
we are working from a mind-centered place,
which blocks the flow to grace coming into our life.

So, as this time of year brings with its many outdoor tasks, let’s ensure we bring a positive attitude to it all so that we can enjoy the many benefits working outside offers us.

Newsletter March 2019 – Inspiring Renewal In Others – Part 1 of 2

As we move out of Winter and into Spring and embrace the renewal of spirit Spring brings with it, let’s remember that our communications with others can also inspire a renewal of spirit in them, or, it can deflate them.

When our words, attitudes, and behaviors uplift and encourage others, they can more easily follow their hearts, embrace their passions, and feel empowered. And we convey that they are emotionally safe around us. Safe to express themselves fully. Honestly. To open up and speak from their heart. To be vulnerable.

Although at our highest levels of awareness we don’t need those around us to speak, be, or act one way or another to feel safe and comfortable, most of us are not at those levels. Many of us are sensitive to the nuances of what our communications with others hold – to the direct and indirect messages imparted.

It is not only the words we use that convey our messages and intentions in our communications with others, there are also many non-verbal cues that are passed on, and these cues are picked up – either on a conscious or subconscious level.

Everything we say and do is filled with the consciousness we are coming from.
We raise our consciousness by bringing love and its qualities to what we say, and do. 
These work in tandem to raise our vibration, and that of the world.

Newsletter March 2019 - Inspiring Renewal In Others

The Words We Use Do Hold Vibrations. So, let’s choose our words carefully. Choose soft words. Kind words. Encouraging words.

Our Delivery: To ensure another feels emotionally safe around us, we must ensure our tone and body language convey a sense of openness and good intentions.

Our Tone. The tone we use can completely change the meaning of our words. A soft tone conveys an openness and allows for the other to feel emotionally safe. A loud,  or harsh tone conveys a combative, judgmental, and/or bullying attitude and those more sensitive, or anyone not sure of them self at the moment will feel threatened.They will become defensive and conflict will ensue, or they will create an emotional barrier and avoid future communications.

Our Body Language. Body languages covey underlying attitudes. A soft, non-aggressive stance coveys a sense of openness and allows the other to feel secure expressing them self. An aggressive stance, like with arms firmly folded, or when physical boundaries are not respected stresses the other, and again emotional walls go up.

This message is based in concepts in my 2 books. This is the cover of the most recent.

Links with more info on both books are below.

The Intentions Behind Our Words Are Passed On. (continued in Part 2),

In Part 2, which I will post next week, I will finish the last section, as well as

Talk about “The Requirements of Good Communication Skills” which consists of:

1) Allowing for Two-Way Communication, and

2) The Importance of Really Listening.

Newsletter – January 2019 – Subtle Resolutions

Subtle Resolutions We Can Make

The beginning of each year brings with it hope. New possibilities. And often resolutions. As we are now a few weeks into 2019, many of our New Years resolutions may have fallen by the wayside. However, we can still aim to better ourselves in more subtle ways.

Most resolutions focus on “doing” or “not doing” – on behaviors. And as important as it is to become conscious and improve behaviors that may not be serving us, we can gain more clarity, increase our happiness and peace of mind, and improve our relationships with simple attitude shifts. We can:

Become More Positive: Our whole outlook on life will shift. A more positive attitude will invite more positive people and circumstances into our life.

When we replace anger and negative attitudes with calmness, acceptance, and more positive attitudes we feel more peaceful. And our relationships will start to improve.

Being positive allows for more openness, and openness allows for better communication, which improves and creates more harmonious relationships.

Become More Accepting of Others: As we become more accepting of others, we benefit by clearing our mind of its judgments. A clearer mind allows for more clarity regarding our path forward, and allows us to focus on more life-affirming aspects of living.

And our subconscious translates this acceptance of others as being more accepting of ourselves, helping us to overcome any self-deprecation of not being perfect.

Making Peace with Situations: We have all experienced difficult and/or unfair situations. It is only in making peace with tough situations and giving up the focus on them that we open ourselves up to better ones. Our past and society has taught us to blame, to keep the drama of it all going, and even to seek  revenge.

These attitudes only keep the negativity of situations alive within us. Letting go of the thoughts, details, and scenarios of past or current situations we don’t like and replacing them with the thoughts and dreams of what we would like to happen in our life now is what will make room in our energetic being for better circumstances to enter our life.

Below is information on my newly released Book 1, Why We Are the Way We Are,

of  my new ‘Our Journeys to Peace’ Series.

Forgiving Others – Forgiving Ourselves: We have all only ever done our best within our level of awareness. Society has only recently acknowledged that compassion, understanding, equality, fairness, and acceptance are qualities that we need to adhere to become happy and contended people.

And our current spiritual awareness has shown us that happiness and contentment is our God-given right. Most of our individual pasts did not support these qualities, nor promote happiness. Neither did Humanity’s history.

It takes time to overcome our personal and collective programming. It takes understanding to forgive others for their past or present shortcomings of positive and life-affirming attitudes and behaviors.

And it takes courage to look at and forgive our past attitudes and behaviors that did not reflect what we now know we must all embrace.

So, as we all attempt to adopt these newfound ways of being and navigate the world differently, let’s remember we are all just doing our best to shift and overcome our past programming – and that we will all still falter from time to time.

Let’s remember to continue to forgive others – and ourselves when we forget to be the loving, accepting, and positive beings we were all meant to be, who are able to create harmony in our lives, and are able to feel inner peace and just BE.

As we continue to embrace all that 2019 brings with it, let’s keep the hope alive, do our best to better ourselves in whichever way is important to us, and forgive our self, and others, when we forget to be hopeful, positive, accepting, and loving.

My Best Wishes to All of You and Your Loved Ones for a Happy, Healthy, Life-affirming, and Safe 2019,

Rosemary McCarthy© January 20, 2019.

Newsletter, November 2018 – Self-honesty / Honesty With Others


 

Self-honesty / Honesty With Others

We hear a lot about the importance of being honest with others, but most of us don’t realize that being honest with ourselves is what allows us to be honest with others.

When we are honest with ourselves – in touch with and accepting of our feelings we can afford to be honest with others. We are not in denial of our emotions; not fearful others will discover something we don’t want to share or discuss. Our hearts are clear and open. We are able to have intimate conversations with people. To speak our truth. Confident enough to explain where we are coming from, and why. To “bare our souls,” if appropriate.

October 2018 Newsletter – Making Changes / Embracing New Ideas

As Humanity continues to evolve, we are all being guided to shift, change, and be open to new ideas.

Society is evolving. It is making major shifts in how we deal with each other. We are embracing new ideas- like fairness and equality for all. We are changing how we view others. How we treat people – no matter how different they are than us. This is not easy for everyone, however, to create the world we all want society has to change its perspective.

Individuals are also being guided – nudged to evolve. To shift ideas we have created of how our lives should be. Things around us are changing. Evolving. And we have to adapt. Universal forces are pushing us to replace what is keeping us living life from a limited perspective to embracing what will open us up to greater possibilities.

Newsletter – September 2018 – Decluttering …

Decluttering the Physical Unclutters Our Mind

As I am moving shortly, it is the process of preparing for my move that brought about this month’s theme on decluttering. Going through all my things reminded me of the spiritual concept that clearing out our physical environment clears out our mind.

Our Possessions Make Our Home. Give Us Comfort.

Our Old Possessions Are Familiar. They Help Us Feel Secure.

However, we sometimes hold onto unused, unneeded, and unnecessary possessions. Things from our past. And we often don’t know, or even remember, how or why we acquired them. Why we keep them.
