Sounds and faces on The Path

20 january 2016Where will you walk today?

Who will you invite to walk beside you?

Will someone you encounter see something in your face or tone of voice that makes them smile or even want to turn around?

Think about how it is that our mere presence on the Path of Life takes us to new spaces that inspire our spirit. Find something today that gives you the strength to walk towards a place of understanding.

You never know who might follow.

Entertaining Angles Aware

I’ve learned that life is filled to overflowing with opportunities that can only be considered ‘magical’ or ‘miraculous’. When you experience one such moment your life is transformed and you learn to tune in, never wanting to miss another.

Yesterday was filled with many of those moments. It started when I woke up, and the instant I turned on the bedroom lamp the lightbulb exploded. It turned out that the lamp was ‘fried’. An hour later when it happened again, the ‘message’ seemed clear; Pay attention! When energy starts blowing out, I’ve learned to take it as an emotional heads up…

Yesterday was filled with many of those moments. It started when I woke up, and the instant I turned on the bedroom lamp the lightbulb exploded. It turned out that the lamp was ‘fried’. An hour later when it happened again, the ‘message’ seemed clear; Pay attention! When energy starts blowing out, I’ve learned to take it as an emotional heads up…

The day before, I’d scheduled a Skype call with my friend Elmer, forgetting that it was the same time that guests from out of town were due to arrive. But connecting with him was an absolute priority, and so I was continually checking my email to confirm the call with his beloved wife Anne, and struggling to focus while doing my best to not to burn the evening meal that was far more complicated than it ought to have been given the circumstances.
I was in the kitchen with my friends Jahnavi and Marylou, when two things happened; first, the energy in the room suddenly felt electrified, a sense that made all of us aware that ‘something’ was going on. It was then that I clearly heard Elmer say “Hey Lynnclaire.”

Telling them what happened, while neither Jahnavi nor Marylou heard him, without discounting my experience, I suggested that our guests might have arrived. They hadn’t, but it seemed certain that Elmer had.

The evening progressed and no email came to confirm the Skype call. Shortly after my guests left for their hotel, I opened my email to find a note from Anne that came in at 18.14. My energy dissolved reading her simple words telling me that Elmer passed at 9 AM their time, 17.00 mine; the exact moment when Elmer’s energy appeared in the kitchen and he called my name.

That he made a house call, stopping by to say farewell came as a surprise to no one. It remains an experience of grace, one for which I will be forever grateful. In the highest sense, it was an example of synchronicity, which for me is when human will, two or more, and the Divine spirit agree, and then come together to cooperate in what is most surely the work of regeneration. In this instance synchronicity produced an opportunity for closure, a chance to say hello and goodbye. All I can say is that for the Universe to take Elmer Schettler at this time means there’s a big job that needs big boots and an incredible heart to accomplish. That he rode the arc of Love from the red rocks of Sedona to Switzerland’s Alps for a cosmic hug, was a remarkable ending that sent us both towards a new beginning.

Strangly enough, today every time I’ve touched a lamp the bulb has instantly blown out… Sharing this with Anne I learned that recently a friend gave Elmer a new nickname because he kept coming up with all manner of ideas… The name? “Lightbulb”

Pay attention. You never know who may be waiting to greet you.

Seasons and Cycles

Today as Mother Earth continues her pirouette, in the North we are counting down the remaining days of Autumn (as the kids ridiculously mark the calendar, already naming the number of sleeps until Christmas). In the South friends are shedding layers, watching as the verdant greens of Spring transform into the muted tones of Summer.

The Gift of Reflected Light

torus Only when you know that you deserve are you free to truly serve.

What do you have the courage to consider accepting today?

Will it lighten your body or weigh it down?
Does its spark have the power to ignite your heart?
Will it call forth thoughts that lift, connect and transform how you think?
Will in spin through your inner world to link north and south with east and west?
How will it make today count in light of Eternity?
Will it kindle authenticity and uplift your spirit?

That which is noble transforms your life and radiates from inside out.

How will you be a sphere of inspiration today?

This photograph is a torus of light; the echo of a resonant pulse that became visible
as a beam of light was reflected through a crystal glass filled with water as a rhythmic pattern of sound was added. The ring-pattern shown here, captured in space and time,
is a pattern match to those blown by dolphins as they emit sonar frequencies in the sea; the hole in the centre, think a bagel or doughnut, is the vortex that most recognise as the dynamics in Doppler radar (scroll down to ‘Velocity’ for an image that may surprise you),
a forest fire, a hurricane or a the powerful funnel of a tornado.
