Happy  Birthday om

I knew my blogiversary was in May but I did not realize it was on the auspicious occasion of Buddha’s Birthday, and Memorial Day. So it’s a Celebration! Three years, my 3rd Blogiversary! Cool! I have been so richly blessed knowing all of you, who have inspired me, informed me, entertained me, and give me lots of loving support. Blogging has been such a rewarding experience that I never suspected would enrich my life so very much.

I love you all~ Namaste~ Now to BBQ!

Here is a post for the Let’s Go Retro Blogging Challenge!

Renewed and refreshed.  It has been way too long since I have practiced Qigong on a daily basis. I have wanted to do so but…. haven’t. So today I meet Tashi my new Qigong teacher. Tashi is an  an Internal Martial Artist and energy cultivator since ‘95. Tashi had study Auricular Medicine, Cranial Sacral, DNA Reprogramming, Light Body’s, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Meditation under a number of exceptional masters in their fields.

What a great class. Feeling the Chi once again coarsening through my body. Now to reestablish the discipline to continue everyday.

Qigong is an ancient Chinese health care system that integrates physical postures, breathing techniques and focused intention. The word Qigong (Chi Kung) is made up of two Chinese words. Qi is pronounced chee and is usually translated to mean the life force or vital-energy that flows through all things in the universe.

Here is a video, 11 minutes of instruction, movements starts at 11 minutes.

 In honor of Mercury Retrograde, May 18 – June 11, let’s go retro. It is my first week off school, and I am looking forward to some blogging fun this summer. I propose a Retro Blogging Challenge ~ Prompt is “Retro,” so you can reuse, reblog and oldie but goody, and link me, or discuss a retro topic, its a wide open theme. I am not going to set dates, lets do it until June 11. Let’s Rock this Mercury Retrograde and make it work for us. Reassess, reevaluate, redecorate, reorganize, redistribute, reassign, rediscover……..

(Oh and I will add all links on my blog, so my readers will see you.)

 Christina A. version

Finally I found an angle on this prompt for this week’s Dungeon Prompts, Overcoming Ourselves…..

It takes me the better part of two days to visit and read all the blogs I follow, which can only be done in the summer when I am not in school. But…..I love doing it, I am educated, informed and inspired by my World Press blogging friends…lol I know Word Press but it really is World Press.

I read Sreejit’s post, My Journey, which made so much sense, especially after reading his mother’s blog and having a discussion with her yesterday. After reading Sreejit’s journey I thought of my own but I am still reading and catching up on blogs. I came across a friends post “Enjoy Every Sandwich,” which is a post about cucumber sandwiches, not her usual fare, she write some deep, and thought proving post as well, but for some reason the play on words caused the song from The Sound of Music, Climb Every Mountain, to pop into my head, and even while I am typing this and listening to the nice OM video shared by Julianne Victoria, it is overlaid with Climb Every Mountain. No, I am not done yet with the preamble. Getting there, wait for it, wait for it….lol now I am just being silly.

So still reading blogs, and not done yet….I come to my friend Ken Sheetz blog post, The Robin Williams Visitations. I love that Ken just puts himself out there. I have had to really push on that one but if you read my blog you can see that I now, just do it. I believe Ken because it has happened to me too, not with Robin and not often, just a couple of times, most recently last year when my friend died, which you can read about here. But a celebrity appearance has been made and it was several years ago, and I worked with him for about a month. He had first visited my friend as she was working at Warner Brother’s Studio lot, as she told me what happened, he started talking to me too, and she and I worked on something for him. I will not go into it now but it was very real, perhaps another time? It got me thinking about my journey and overcoming myself.

I have not overcome today’s self but I have overcome yesterdays, and maybe last weeks, last months, last years……Maybe, and then again, maybe not. It is a moment by moment process.

I thought about my journey since working with that departed celebrity, and how what a literal journey it has been. Only a year or so later, after listening to a missive from my Higher Self, which instructed me to leave California by November 1, 2010, and the absolute courage it took to do that. I had lived there for 30 years; it was my life, my beloved apartment, and my friends. I didn’t really want to do it, but I felt that I must, so I took the steps, one at a time. Then I spent a couple of years back in Louisiana which I had escaped many years prior, it wasn’t for me, but I have lots of love and gratitude to my brother and sister in law Renee, for giving me a space to heal. You see I had completely broken down in LA, after my best friend died, and my finances were a shamble.  Thanks to my family I had a lot of peace and quiet time to recoup, also thanks to my family for pushing me out of the nest. So then my journey from Louisiana, west again to Arizona, this too took courage as I chose to make that trek alone driving. So many of you were there for me on that journey…thank you!

So I am still overcoming myself every day. I need to overcome myself right now, and go get my phone fixed. Ugh, I just don’t want to. Lol

Please do go and check out some of the links I have shared. If you are not already acquainted with these blogger buddies of mine, you might just like them? 😀

Thank you all for adding beautiful colors that I paint my perceptions with. I love you all~

Namaste

Butterfly Journal

Monthly Contemplations for Spiritual Metamorphosis

I have been given the great honor of reviewing The Butterfly Journal, a book written by my friend, and fellow Word Press blogger, Julianne Victoria. The book is based on metamorphosis, as the caterpillar transmutes in its cocoon to emerge as a dynamic and beautiful butterfly, so can the soul of the human. Alchemical magic occurs as the DNA of the caterpillar switches off and the DNA of the butterfly switches on. It also takes strength and effort for the butterfly to emerge from the cocoon, the same strength and effort it takes as humans to come out of the cocoon of sleep into the awakened transcendent light of full consciousness.

In The Butterfly Journal, Julianne takes the reader/writer step by step, assisting us through stages of emergence into our being, allowing us space on the pages to express the process. Can you imagine what a fascinating read it would be if the alchemical process was journaled by the fairy like insect? Well we are not insects, but we are magical creatures in the midst of a magical process of transformation and growth of spirit.

As I the take the journey of spiritual metamorphosis, I invite you to come along. Pick yourself up a copy at Amazon, or Barnes & Noble, and from time to time I will share some of my reflections, as I use the Butterfly Journal in my odyssey of expansion.

You can follow along with Julianne Victoria, the author as she shares her journal entries here.

Namaste my little Flutterbys ~ ƸӜƷ~
