Hold On? (Knowing When or If To Let Go)

Holding On Letting Go

“Hold on when the world ain’t treating you good, you gotta hold on.  When everybody’s looking at you funny, you gotta hold on.” ~Alabama Shakes Lead Singer Brittany Howard   It’s the fall season. Look at the trees as the leaves change colors.    It’s an entire process. Part of that process is that some leaves fall before others.  All the leaves don’t fall at the same time.   Some hold on until the very end.  They let go when it’s their time to let go. Sometimes you need to continue to hold on until it is time to let…


“Get Busy Living (Letting Go) or Get Busy Dying (Not Letting Go)”

Get Busy Living or Get Busy Dying

    On my daily walk around the school building today I happened to look up in the sky. I saw an airplane so high up above the clouds. I looked at the trail that it had made in the sky. I didn’t have my phone on me and had to walk back to the car to get it to take the above picture, but the plane was long gone by the time I got back to that spot. This made me think that we can get STUCK in our daily lives…daily problems…daily jobs…daily folks we talk to…daily stuff and…


Letting Go of Loved Ones

There is an energetic wrenching or pulling that takes place when a loved one dies. No matter how you put it when a blood tie goes, something changes in the universe – your universe.   When that blood tie is your mother it’s like the center has shifted and you have to find your barring – a new normal I guess. Breathing Feels Different Now… I kind of feel like an orphan now that I don’t have a mother or father living. I’m sure you can’t be considered an orphan at middle-age, but that’s how I feel.  It’s a hollow feeling….


Just Go…Let Go of Your “Normal” Schedule & Go

Seems when I just go and do things that I’m led to do I have the most rewarding experiences. So this weekend I just went… To See A  Documentary Heard on NPR there was a documentary being shown at a local church.  So, I just went to see the documentary called The Final Gift about a lady who lost her brother to murder and her journey to make sense of it.  It led her to get a master’s degree in Criminal Justice, making a documentary, and not just talking about but actually participating in Restorative Justice. Watching the documentary was…


Letting Go Of Thinking That You Are The Only One Talking To Your Dead Friends

Letting Go Freely

MY DEAD FRIENDS by Marie Howe I have begun, when I’m weary and can’t decide an answer to a bewildering question to ask my dead friends for their opinion and the answer is often immediate and clear. Should I take the job? Move to the city? Should I try to conceive a child in my middle age? They stand in unison shaking their heads and smiling-whatever leads to joy, they always answer, to more life and less worry. I look into the vase where Billy’s ashes where it’s green in there, a green vase, and I ask Billy if I…


Just Quit Thinking You Walk This Journey Alone – Your Ancestors Walk With You

You are not walking this journey alone. Your ancestors walk with you. The wisdom of the future is contained in the mind, hearts and souls of the past. In order to go forward, sometimes you must go backwards.  Sometimes you must ask for help from your ancestors.   Their spirits are still alive.  They live in and through you.  Draw from their power. They are waiting for you to use the power that they have been building for decades, for centuries even. YOU have the Know-How, YOU’VE developed great skills, YOU’VE Prepared Yourself Now Do Something! Have the courage to let go of…


When You Just Quit Living Will There Be A Soul’s Graduation?

Hopi Prayer

HOPI PRAYER of  The Soul’s Graduation Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight On the ripened grain. I am the gentle Autumn’s rain. When you awaken in the morning hush, I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry. I am not there. I did not die. My Spirit is still alive… This…
