THE MEANING OF BIRTHDAYS

FIRST – ABOUT MY FATHER

As birthdays are a time to celebrate an individual, I’d like to write about my father, whose birthday is coming up on June 4 – a day I always honor and remember. He passed in 2001 at 79 years of age after twenty years of heart problems (two bypasses, carotid artery surgery on both sides, a pacemaker and multiple hospital stays). His leaving was a blessing and relief for him. He had been in hospital with the threat of death so often in the last five years of his life, we had prepared and grieved so when it happened, we all – including him – had been through the worst.

A SOUL-MATE ENCOUNTER

When we think of “soul mate”, we think of the “One Person” we need/want to complete us. Our “other half”. Having this person in our lives gives everything, mostly ourselves, meaning.

We want to continue it in this life, especially if it was a full, satisfying journey. Other times, we desperately want to connect with someone we’ve loved from another life when that life was incomplete, as in a great relationship existed but was cut short by death or forced separation.

In more immediate ways, the planets in our solar system affect us on a day-to-day basis, helping us adjust to the new vibrations by challenging us. The fastest way to grow and learn is through challenge. Read More

THE VIBRATIONS WE GIVE OFF

“You cannot get through a single day without impacting the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.” …Jane Goodall

While I believe Ms. Goodall was talking about choices of kindness, understanding and generosity in day-to-day thoughts and actions, her words also pertain to the energy or vibrations we give off, consciously and, more importantly, subconsciously. While it may seem we can’t control our subconscious thoughts and actions, we can if we’re aware where they originated and why we have them. And we have a willingness to want to change within.
