My Constipated Cat & the Universe

Hello friends. It has been awhile. Teaching is hard and long hours, but I love it. Sometimes, I don’t love it. lol I am almost half way through my first year, not that I am rushing it. It is almost surreal having your dream manifest before your very eyes. I mean yes, I did the work: I went to school, I graduated and I took the test. I guess what I am saying is, you can do whatever you set your mind to. If I can do it, anyone can do it. My siblings, and myself, were raised by a high school educated single mother, and I did this in my early 50’s gradating at 60, and now 61.

Now to the constipated cat. My kitty is a stray, an outdoor cat. I would not call her Ferrel, because she is just too domesticated. I think I wrote about her getting knocked up a couple of years ago, then I raised her babies to adoption, and had her fixed. So she will let all of us pick her up and she will come through the house but she does not want the door closed. being an outside cat, how would I know when she was, or when she wasn’t going poo? She started acting strange and talking, and trying to poo in front of me, for several days. Finally I consulted a friend, who told me hairballs could cause constipation and to give her oil. Since she had this problem for days I decided she needed a good dose of oil. I decided on my favorite, coconut oil, which I dosed her with for three days. I think the problem is solved. Coconut oil is my cure all, that garlic, and rubbing alcohol.

And now lets switch channels to the universe. All I can say is wow, just wow! I am seeing things revealed in ways I always knew were true. Things coming to mass consciousness, light shinning on everything, and some real ugly truths are also being brought up and out. Humanity can be low, because it has been asleep and controlled, but, no longer. I am seeing amazing things unfold from every aspect from the mundane to the miraculous, to the mystical. This has been one great ride. I don’t believe in any way that my job is done here, but I can say that I am fulfilled. I am blessed and grateful. I wish happiness and good health to you all.

You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your

love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You

yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.

The Call

remnants~ Katherine Ace

I don’t know what to write. I had an epiphany today but it doesn’t make me feel any better. That was that my existence or rather my incarnation as Sindy is not necessarily about my happiness. Many years ago I made a very serious vow, a vow to my Being, or Higher Self, (whatever you wish to call it.) The vow I made was to make the purpose of my Being’s incarnation as Sindy my top priority. I stand by this but in my journey since my friends death three years ago, when I lost my balance, left my home and friends, started a new life, moved again and started another….I forgot. Yes, I completely forgot that I made this very serious vow. So in that, I have to realize that my life is not necessarily about my happiness, or lack thereof.

Now we all know that I am in fact blue and a bit depressed, but that perspective is on me. I can choose to feel otherwise. The menopause probably isn’t assisting me at all. Lol So, get thee to the (Chaste Tree extract,) herb store Sindy. Anyway my point is this; my life has a purpose according to my Beings divine blueprint, now I am pretty sure my having a positive attitude will be required to attain it.

What is my Life Purpose you ask? Or maybe you didn’t, but I will answer the question for the sake of continuity. Here is the answer: I don’t know. I really wish I did. I think it has to do with all that the tools I have gathered thus far and possibly write or teach. I don’t know, so I continue my education and just go forward seeking the guidance of my Higher Self.

If one thing we say or do influences someone that achieves world peace or becomes a great leader….well then, that would be good for me. I think that would be good for my Being but I will have to give them a call, we have lost touch with one another lately.

So Namaste, really, I mean it.


Connecting For Balance


Blessings to all~ Day 12, Connecting for Balance~ Deepak speaks of our modern connecting through social networking and how it is a new way of connecting and how we are virtually tapping into the collective consciousness which we can use to improve our world. He also see we need to connect the old fashion way with eye contact, hugs and kisses.

The centering thought, I cherish my every connection.

The mantra, Tat Tvam Asi, which means, I see the other in myself and myself in others.

Have a very blessed day~


Eating For Balance


Day 11 is Eating For Balance~ Deepak begins by saying “Food is Consciousness,” we are reminded to eat healthy live foods, and to eat in conscious awareness. Eating in harmony with our bodies. All good stuff!

The centering thought, I chose foods that help me thrive.”

Day 11 mantra, Om Vardhanam Namah  which means, I nourish the universe and the universe nourishes me.

Much love everyone, now to Biology homework. Fun stuff!

Stay tuned for an exciting presentation on something I am really passionate about.

(¯`´¯)I Am Brahman. Such is the truth. °*˜ƸӜƷ˜


Breathing For Balance


So technically yesterday or Wednesday was Day 10, Breathing for Balance. All of us meditating, spiritual types, or athletes, know the importance of the breath. Deepak does not explain the different types of breathing probably because he is teaching the general masses, but he does emphasize focus and slow steady breathing. He spoke of pranayama but he did not explain it as I was taught, as alternate nostril breathing. When I was taught the pranayama we did however use the same mantra, So Hum.

Day 10’s centering thought, I am one with the breath of life.

FYI this picture filled me with joy when I first saw it last Friday. I hope you have the same experience.

Much love,


So Hum


Sorry to be a day behind on my blog companion series, with the Chopra 21 Day Health Meditation Challenge. Oh well. It’s All Good~

Day 6 mantra was So Hum, translated I Am. I love I Am, and have had transcendental moment using I Am as a mantra. The centering thought was, “I am perfection. I am healthy. I am strong.” 

I am~perfection. I am~healthy~ I am~ strong and so are you~

Soaked Almonds

Ayurveda recommends to soak and peel your Almonds before you eat them, to make them more easily digestible & nourishing and to increase the life and vitality contained within them. The skin is said to be hard and heat producing.
Research confirms that soaking decreases the amount of phytic acid and thus makes the goodness of Almonds (protein, fiber, omega-3 and 6 fatty acids, vitamin E, magnesium, calcium, and zinc) easier to digest..

How to soak-
~ Place your Almonds (Organic preferred) in a bowl.
~ Pour boiled and cooled water over the Almonds.
~ Cover the bowl
~ Allow to soak overnight.
~ Rinse next morning with fresh water.
~ The skin will be soft & loose. Peel the skin away & enjoy!
Here are some advantages that come from soaking almonds.

Sunday Morning Java

It Sunday morning somewhere, at least it is here. lol I thought I would take a moment while having my coffee (which is very good) to update my friends here in the Word Press blogasphere. Two weeks of school and well underway, I will be finishing up my online Psychology class this week, and my online History class next week. Thank Goodness! So much reading, tension has let up a bit but menopause has not. Yuck, being a crone sucks. I desperately need my herbs Chaste tree extract, and just my luck the only health food store in town was closed yesterday due to power outage. Really?

Fall is in the air, last night it was actually a bit chilly outside, so exciting. I have been considering buying a scooter to commute to school. Scooters are great on gas and inexpensive. I can either buy a clunker of a car that would need repairs and drink gas or buy a brand new scooter that gets 80 miles per gallon? My only concerns are safety and weather. So that is about it. I had to select a play and I am not so sure I like the one I chose. We shall see. Much love blogger buddies.

Happy Fall Sunday!
