If You Had One Wish...

My daughter is really into
TinkerBell right now.
This phase seems right on time.

First, she was wicked into trains,
then dragons which was scary,
then dinosaurs and I had concerns....
followed by horses,
then Harry Potter and Star Wars which I loved because I geeked out with her!

But then, all of a sudden as if right when the spring flowers bloomed..BOOM! TinkerBell.

And it got me to thinking about
Fairies and wishes and....
Wishcraft
naturally.

Since retiring my position this winter with Dark Beauty Magazine, I have to be clear
that Krafty Kitty has not left the building. She's intently studying Jedi mind tricks from many schools of energy and thought and dimensions. It was time I put my $ where my pie hole is and so far I have this to report: What a brilliant world it is we live in my friends!

Just brilliant!

The colors are amazing! The music, food and laughter are to be devoured!
Joy is the drug of the future! Happy feels nothing less than amazing.
Happy is a choice and feels remarkably more fun than sad. I learned that Happy is achievable and when you are there, you only hope it's contageous.

But there are few of us who really view things that way.
When I find those who are like minded, even for a moment I hold them close.
(SEE FREE HUG FRIDAY FOR DETAILS).

I meet dozens of people daily.
Some of from the Tri State Area.  Scores are from the Wilkes Barre-Scranton area.
Philly and the entire state of New Jersey are at a close tie at the moment.
And I must say, New Yorkers have been few and far between lately.
Which bums me out because they are my favorite!
But I digress. The aforementioned do not include clients, neighbors, community members and friends.
That's a lot of persons, people, energy, and what not in a twenty four hour time span for one person. And most faces are focused on or never fail to mention the UNHAPPY circumstances of the (or their) world.

Yes, I am your witness. Yes, I will continue to  hold space for your pain
and send it up as an offering to please help you see better days.  It is my honor to do so.

But, when I meet  people who embrace the same kind of language I do, the same ideals:
like attracting like no matter if it's positive or negative, who commit to choosing LOVE intently, I breath it in knowing that it feels so much more.. like home.

I will not lie.  It's hard.  I know it is. On top of everyone else's 'stuff' there's my own complete with doubt, tinges of fear and tears. But every day doesn't have to always be 'that way'. And I am living proof. I want to scream at times when I find moments of joy.
Love and  happiness are like flowers waiting to be uncovered like the first spring morning when the fairies everything to life. There are wishes to be made on birthdays because it's always someone's birthday somewhere! Miracles need to occur it's the natural order and there are dreams to be realized, love to be shared and babies to be born. All of this, like the nature and seasons are inevitable.

Which brings me to the extinction of Fairies and wishes. Once the earth heats, when the ice caps melt,
 fairies will spontaneously combust forming a second sun. Just kidding but it's plausible.
Anyway.  The point is: Anything is possible, plausible and yes!
SHIT SUCKS. Somewhere, somehow. Obviously. What happened in Boston just reminded everyone of that. If it's not devastating weather it's crazy people! There's NO need to ask for more of it by focusing on the horrific.  This will only breed more of the same.

So let us break the cycle! When something big transpires ie;  Boston or the earth quake in China, please don't forget to celebrate that there were heros, and survivors and the miracles that occur. Stay in the light.
Pray. Forgive.  Forgive.  Forgive.

I was driving this morning when I noticed a  bumper politely reminding me to ask myself:
What would Jesus Do? He'd be busy making sure there was plenty of healing going on.  Naturally.
He would see that life went on for the highest good. Exactly what the Fairies do.
Neither get caught up in the drama they just go.

Human sacrifice is a cry for
MORE PEACE.
Not more gun or border patrol.
The whole world is churning.
Not just the inside walls of America
and WE NEED MORE PEACE
to get to peace we must first find the
path to Love.

So that is my ultimate wish for you.
For everyone! Before the Fairies become extinct
and we all get sucked into another dimension or
North Korea pulls a nuke, let us love each other like we love ourselves and damn it!
Let us LOVE ourselves!
Let us pray for forgiveness
for us for others.
Let us invite PEACE first
by practicing being
LOVE.

If TinkerBell showed up tomorrow, or I accidentally uncovered a lamp in my shop with a sleeping genie in it, I'd ask for the above so that the world would radiate as a more loving, less scary, intently caring and not overbearing of arms planet for my five year old and all her friends who want to believe in fairies to grow up in.

Dearest reader, it's your turn.
What would your ONE wish be?
Leave a comment below.
Let's invite love into our conversation and into ourselves
as a cure and let us be peace.

Amen.

XOXO

ILL COMMUNICATION

I hate cellphones. Honestly I do.

While I applaud the advancement of technology 
and the connection you and I have because of the world wide web...
I wish we could all just walk away from cell phones at least once or twice a week.
In fact I believe there is a Cake song with this sort of sentiment.

I used to say that unless I can teleport from it, I don't really want it.  
But now I have a fancy HTC and I'm on it all the time, Email, Instagram, Facebook, texting, clients, family, friends, paranormal emergencies, vendors, etc.

I know I need it for business and emergencies and to "stay connected" 
but at the end of the day this connection is an illusion.
And some times it is straight up bullshit.

If I really had my way, I would  bury my phone six feet underground, bring back the rotary, light up the streets with corner pay phones and reinstall land lines providing jobs and what not that this economy needs.  I'd also have my communication go a little retro through love letters, post cards and sometimes yes....a fax.  If anyone really knows me ...even a mix tape! What?

This idea of always "being connected"ironically keeps us separate.
And many of us are experiencing pain and illusion because of this.
People are becoming more anti social and sincerely socially inept.

Please allow me to explain.

When a text is sent to someone and the receiving
party doesn't respond after 4 seconds or a
voicemail is left  and your call is not returned for a few hours
a common misconception in the time &space between
is that there is a problem or...something is inherently wrong.  

The stories we create in between the noises
or vibrations our electronic devices make are an illusion based in ego and fear.

I have been guilty of these stories. Chances are you are guilty too.
This unnecessary stressor does not serve the greater good.

Here's how to deal.

First, when you call or leave a text without an immediate response
please respect that everyone is busy and just because at the
very moment you're free it doesn't mean the other party is.
They may be driving.
They may be on the toilet.....
like this lovely lady....just doin her thang.

It really could be that simple. 98% of the time it is.
But unless that other person is your child or employee
- no one owes you an explanation of their whereabouts.

There is too much stress to add more
stress in your life over nothing.
Let's reframe this and work on the bigger stuff folks.
We have a whole lot of world to change.

However, if you are repeatedly calling or texting
without response each and every time you may want to take a moment
and reconnect with your values.

Don't spend time on people who don't have time for you.











If your child is asking you a question, put your Iphone down.
If you're creepin on facebook for the third time before noon, put it away.
If you are reaching for your phone more than the book you just bought...read your damn book.
Don't take phone calls or text during dinner with family or friends.  Or at the movies COME ON!
Please stop texting and driving and lastly just STOP communicating 'that' way.
NO one really likes your wtf's lmfao, rofl lol's and smiley faces.


If something is really important to you, don't put it in a text message.
Save it for a phone call or here is a novel concept - tell the person or persons while using hand gestures and a smile. It doesn't hurt to do this over coffee or dinner :)

Be present!

We the connected people have become quite aggressive,
yet terribly passive,
scared, yet so damn angry and wrought with worry all of the time
simply because of our beautiful technology mis matched with some ill communication.

Being present to what's and who is in front of you is the best way to communicate.  Thoughtful cards aren't a bad idea either.

So this week, how could you
or will you communicate differently, lovingly?  Better?

Leave a comment or shoot me email with a complaint :)

As per usual I Love LOVE and your joy is important to me.
Spread the good word.

XOXO

4 Reasons Why Badmouthing Others is BAD For YOU.

I was talking today with a friend about the importance of words.  How you use them, positively, negatively any which way.  Words are like weapons.  Once you put them out there, they are pretty much impossible to take back.  Sure you can say you are sorry but it doesn't wipe the blood and guts off the floor from the initial bullet wound.  Forgiveness is key, but let's be mindful of our words from the get.  Dig?

Here's a repurposed blog to go along with those thoughts.

Everyone gets hurt. No one is perfect. People mess up. Mistakes are made. But the cross you bare when you badmouth someone else's questionable deeds or good fortunes, their life advances or personal tragedies is a very heavy one.

When you engage in loose lip service per say "warning" peers or anyone within earshot about someone or someone's "drama" or perhaps you seem to regurgitate the pain someone has caused you over and over to friends, strangers, clients, family members....well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but you are creating a very slippery and unhealthy slope on your own behalf. 

Let's to be perfectly clear and woo woo at the same time: all relationships are mirrors. Which means that when you dislike something in someone else you're actually exposing the very deep profound dislike for the same precise qualities that dwell within you.  And then when you sprinkle that with gossipy trash talk, angry tweets or negative Facebook status updates (ambiguous or not) you move further away from both inner and outer peace.  And bonus! You deepen unnecessary negative chaos shifting that same energy back toward you.

Finally engaging in this type of behavior is super bad for you and your health and here's why.


It makes YOU look bad. Literally. When you engage in anything less than positivity your entire being radiates anger, jealousy, and bitterness.  Why should you care? Freedom of speech is what this country was founded on!  Right! And everyone is entitled to their opinion. But let's be honest, no one likes Carrie Cry Baby or a Negative Nancy or a Derrick Downer and your mouth looks so much better decked out in a smile than it does staining the name of another.  And after a while, you gain a rep that makes you the kid that no one wants to play with or invite to the parties anymore because your that
"friend" who brings everyone down.
So before you run your mouth
stop and ask yourself these questions:
Is what I am about to say kind? Is it true? Is it absolutely necessary? If the answer is NO to ANY one of those questions do yourself and everyone else a favor, keep your mouth shut.

Negative words create even
more negativity for youIf you are not familiar with the Law of Attraction you need to be. Like attracts like. It is that simple. What you say or think unconsciously or consciously becomes something and bounces back to you.  So while you are busy ranting and raving about "other people's karma" be very aware that you're creating a shit storm of your own coming right for you.
So focus on keeping your side of the street clear.
Glass houses are so easy to brake and are a terrible mess to clean!

You are being a brat. And being a brat is actually making you SICK.  Wasting your precious life energy on other people's stuff supports stress.
And if you are not hip to it, lots and lots of stress builds a pain body thus creating poor health and even worse cancer. But don't believe me.
READ SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH HERE.

It's not kind
A Course in Miracles teaches: Kindness created us KIND. But within every spirituality there is a simple foundation that pretty much declares basic human courtesy...do unto others as you would have done unto you. Be mindful of the way you treat others. If you run around like a raging lunatic spewing hate on any and everyone that "you think deserves it" or "is your direct competition" do you think people will go a step out of their way to be nice to you, wish you well or patronize your company?  NOPE.

A wise woman I know once said: if only put in practice the art of listening rather than constantly processing information and regurgitating nonsense. Then confusion and drama would be at a minimum and intuition and possibility would flourish and surprise you. 




My love and blessings of great health and prosperity to you and everyone around you!

XOXO
