It was interesting that some stranger in a fancy maroon colored sports car would stop in front of our house, compliments our siding and said he wanted to meet us about “some ideas.” I wouldn’t be concerned but for three things. The “kid” reminded me of a guy I know who is a hustler … kind of greasy looking in t-shirt, and looks Mexican or at least part. Reminds me of a bit of a junkie. The car is not one, which fits in this backwater town. And he admitted that he had been driving around town looking at places. Not right at all. The final thing is my senses tell me NOT to trust him. Should I be worried? It is possible.
I am posting this here because I am saying that I trust my instincts and intuitions. If I feel something isn’t right, no matter what anyone else says, I trust this to be true, not what others say.
Today I when I got up, I didn’t realize that things were going to go nuts! First I spilled the oatmeal from it’s container, which wasn’t so bad. I got the dogs and hubster over to mom’s by 830 then headed to get gas … or so I thought. I swiped the card as usual and get things set to go. Got authorized. I started pumping and it shut down. It finally came up with the sign, “Thank you for shopping with us, your receipt is with the cashier.” Now that is all well and good except it hadn’t pumped any gas! I had to do it more the once before it worked right. The next incident was after working with the calves today was at lunch. I bought my son lunch and went to pay for it (Cash this time) and the cash register would not acknowledge that I was paying! The next stop was when I went to get groceries. Not only did the resister wipe off the purchase of the pears but it would not open the drawer. The final obstacle was another cash register which followed the same pattern as the one at the grocery store! Boy am I glad to be home! Not more machines except my computer! I just hope it doesn’t happen again!
I have noticed that there are a whole lot of skeptics out there, not only about magic but about ghosts. Both exist, and I know if people would open their minds, they might be able to actually experience them Ghosts are mostly those who forgot to move on or preferred to stay between life and death. Most are not even malevolent! They are not like what the movies portray them to be … Nor are they evil demons trying to turn us to the dark side. They can be felt, sensed, experienced. I am not saying there is no evil out there, I am just pointing out that between the so called Christians and the media these Ghosts have gotten a bad rap. I believe those who get hurt from these so called hauntings have actually asking evil to come into their homes. Why do you think that witches and other truly spiritual people cleanse their places of any negativity in their homes and other places. Now I am sure that people will diss this and say I don’t know what I am talking about, but I have found it to be true though my own experiences. Research it and see.
I wonder why people disregard situations and happenings as coincidence. Those who consider that have no real sense of wonder nor, it would seem, spirituality. Magic is subtle yet the monotheists call it miracles while those not so spiritually inclined say that it “would have happened anyway”. Still, there are those of us who see every special thing that occurs as a form of magic or gift to those who would accept it. Just a thought for the day.
I love that phrase from the Dream works movie “How to train your Dragon,” and I am using it because it reminds me of the week we’re having. First, my husband lost a five inch binder with all his classes and notes (which he needs so he can finish his testing. We have torn the house apart and even parts of Mom’s house looking for the thing yet we can NOT find it. Then to top it off, Phillip came home to his Grandmother’s from the store (he was spending the night so he could help her out the following day) and when I came to get him, his wallet had vanished. I know he had it with him when he got to his grandmother’s house on Monday. Now this is Weds., and still no sign of either! Makes me wonder if Trolls do exist and they make our lives miserable. You know, both houses have this tendency, and I have never really lost anything, just “misplaced it” but this is ridiculous!
People have lost their sensitivity. They no longer talk to their ancestors on a daily basis nor do they allow themselves to believe they (the ancestors) are there with them on a daily basis. They no longer feel the touch which sends shivers deep in the pit of their stomachs nor do they feel the comfort when they are stressed or sad. We forget to communicate with those who have passed beyond the veil because others have told us they are not there. We are told that ghosts are evil and that we should trust in science or one GOD only. That is bollix! Bogus! We are loosing touch with our rights, our skills and our loved ones because we choose to shut them out. All because someone else chooses NOT to believe or to believe that this is bad.
Communicating is as easy as just talking to them, asking for guidance and compassion. It is not wrong to talk to them, tell them what your day was like, ask them to watch over you when you feel lonely, unhappy or overwhelmed. They still care about us and we should still honor their memories by talking to them. Share your day and see. You may feel silly at first, but as you progress not only will it become natural, but you may find answers to questions in the way of dreams and inspiration. Think about it.
Ever walk in a place of nature, where man seldom treads? I use to, and I rather miss it. My husband and I were up around Door-county, Wisc. a few years ago. We got to stay in two motels. It was around the time when the leaves were turning and it was getting colder. Behind one place there was a park with hiking trails, but it looked like few people tread those paths, and in fact there were a few times we lost sight of those marked places. The area reminded me of the mountains of Idylwild, Calif. A small community set in the mountains amongst the tall pine trees. As you walked those areas, for just a moment all you could hear in the deafening silence was the wind and birds. Sometimes you could catch a glimpse of a deer or rabbit, sometimes even a squirrel scurrying away. As I walk these places, clearings, meadows, trails so seldom used, I listen to the silence and the voices there within that silence. It is what brings us closer to our creator(s). Far closer than the machines and technology which we seem to cling so desperately to for some bit of companionship without the companions. When I walk these places I feel the presence of those long gone and seem to touch what we of the “modern era” have almost completely lost. Our instincts and humanity. For what are we with out the connection to the past and those who have gone before us? It was they who blazed the paths and got us to where we are today, yet we ignore and berate them. We think we are so much better than them. There is a saying “look to the past or we are doomed to repeat our mistakes. I believe that the saying is so very true, and that with out this sacredness of nature and those less traveled paths and roads which connect us to our past, we will truly be lost indeed.
