Day 13 – April 2, 2011

I can't wait any longer! I've been itching to come home and sit at the computer so I can tell you about my day (yes, it's all about Moi!). I am so excited! The Universe adores me. There is no doubt about it. None!

OK. I'll start from the beginning. Remember the other day I had dinner with the Members of the Star Chamber? Well, while at the table the subject of me needing to find a dwelling came up. I told them how I had a month to go and I still hadn't found anything worth living in that I could afford. A few minutes into this conversation one of the Members mentioned that he and his partner may have a home for me. So, to make a long story short, I saw it today. O-M-G!!! I loved it! It has the greatest feel to it! So, if the Members and I agree on the details, I will be moving there!!! I am so excited! It is perfect for us. The Boys are always saying "Let the Universe surprise you," and I've discovered that the surprises can be so amazingly beautiful! When you have a concern or a problem, in this case me not being able to find a home that I liked and that was within my budget, and you just trust that the answer will come, even though you may not know where it will come from, the Universe has unlimited ways of bringing that answer to you. I would've never thought the Members had an extra home! Actually, I didn't even know that these two particular Members were coming to the dinner until that same morning! By letting go. By being open and trusting that the Universe was going to provide me with a home, I allowed this wonderful manifestation. It is all in relaxing our expectations, dreaming, asking and then letting the Universe work for us while we have a drink and file our fingernails. I promise you, I would've never guessed that the answer was going to come this way. Ever. By taking my fingers off of the pulse of the Universe, I gave it free reign and the answer came in. Most of the time we want to put action, we want to solve problems, we want to look for the relief, and what we do is that we only delay the response. I did not have a specific home in mind. I only knew I wanted a home with a nice vibration where the Grasshopper, Diva and I could live comfortably. And the Universe brought me more than what I asked for! Oh! And you want to know why I know this house is perfect for me and is a sign that the Universe adores me? Well, because I've always wanted a home with a red front door, and this one has not one, but two!! J

It is taking a little bit to convince the Grasshopper about this home. He feels it is "less" than what we have right now. It is all about perception. I tell him he just has to align with all the wonderful things that this new home has. He will get there. It's his process. I know that once he's there, all comfy in his room with all his awesome stuff, he will start getting excited. Especially when the neighbors invite him to swim in their amazing, Olympic-size swimming pool! Tripod will be excited to roam around. I will be more than comfortable!!!

Later it was lunch with Mrs. Yum and the Lizard at our favorite pho place. Yummy! The Lizard came with us and he's spending the night with us. We then went to have the Red Bullet inspected and off to Ms. Bite's home to pick up some amazing tamales. There I ran into LadyLust. I wish I could've stayed a little bit, but the backyard creatures were waiting for me. Now it is off to the movies. I'll let you know how it went.

I had a session with a member of the monthly group. She told me how much she likes this blog and it really lifted my spirit!! More? You bet!

Today I found my butterfly as I was walking around the backyard of the Palace-to-be. She was lime green and happy as can be.

Hope you are finding reasons to smile. See you tomorrow. Ta-da for now!

Day 12 – April 1st. 2011

I knew today was different. To begin with, there were no arguments with the Grasshopper this morning. (Yes, you read correctly). He got up on time, took his shower, got ready in a flash, fed Tripod and Freckles and all of this with a huge smile. Weird, but nice. I'm not complaining. We left home early and treated ourselves to our weekly hot beverage in the fancy disposable cup. Now THAT was nice. We had time to talk a little bit. I was kind of sleepy and quiet but he graced me with his insightfulness and talked about his goals for next school year. He is such a joy! I dropped him off and came back home for a lesson with Studious. I enjoy these lessons very much. She is a joy to talk to. Today, we didn't even pull out our books. We talked about our lives (in Spanish, of course) and the hour went by quickly. Then I went to work for a few hours. And I mean, I worked for a few hours! Whoa! By the time I left, I was so tired I couldn't even think straight.
On the light side of things, while at work I received a call from someone who had given my book ("The Unverse at Your Feet") to a friend of his and was full of compliments. He said his friend had found the exact answers that he had been looking for in a long time. He wondered when I would be translating the book into Hindi… maybe one day. Who knows? I think the possibilities are endless.
I got home to find the Manager and Grasshopper visiting and playing with Tripod and Freckles. So nice to have her around! I also heard from the Author. I can't wait to talk to her. She always has a very open and honest perspective on things. I haven't talked to Mrs. Yum today. I miss that girl! She always makes me laugh. We get so involved in our daily lives, in the "I must do"s of life, that we don't make time for the things that really lift our spirits. We are so involved in the games that we ourselves have invented in the hologram that we forget that the force that drove the manifestation of our energy into matter is the force of love, of happiness. And that is the reason why we are here.
I've had the opportunity to look at contrast right in the eye. Every day it seems! And I think (notice I carefully chose to say I think) that I'm starting to understand the purpose and the nature of contrast. I've heard The Boys say many, many times that the purpose of contrast is to cause that "Ah!" moment. The purpose of contrast is to shake us from our comfort zone. But that is it! Contrast is not designed or supposed to last. What makes it last is our perception and our attention! (Another example of how we play with time). So take for instance an unexpected bill. You are faced with that expense, it shakes your comfort zone because you were not counting on that. You lose your balance for a moment; but if at that moment you decide to relax and leave it all to the universe and not worry about it, the answer makes its way to you right away. Then the 'problem' was a problem only for a short period of time. However, if you are anything like me, you get the bill and you hold your breath even as you are opening the envelope. Immediately you start thinking of the resources that you have or not have available, and wonder if you'll be able to pay it. You even make a quick account of the funds you have in the bank and how much money you owe and how long it's going to take you to finish paying all your debt, if you have any. Right there, we are giving the contrast strength and it starts gathering momentum. Since we are like the eye of the hurricane, as we focus our attention on the contrast we are conjuring all the forces of the universe to make it important. Big. Great. And so it lasts. And as time passes, it keeps gaining momentum and mass! Isn't that true? I know that contrast has to be because without it we couldn't leap or move forward, but I am starting to truly understand that it doesn't have to stay. It doesn't have to grow. And most importantly, it doesn't have to consume us! I am learning to say "Universe, take this one. I can't deal with it." Invariably, the Universe does take care of it. I am starting to let the Universe surprise me and I am having the time of my life!
Don't forget the Sunday Morning call!
Hope your April Fool's day went by smoothly. Mine did. I wasn't the victim of any practical jokes. Or maybe I was and I never found out!
I am now going to say hello to my pillow. It's calling my name!
See you tomorrow!
By the way, I LOVE all your comments! Thank you!!!

Day 11 – March 31, 2011

I am so proud of Diva! She really stepped into the plate today and helped me out a lot with things that were needed around the Palace while I went to work. Yeehaw for DIVA!!!!! She is awesome!!!!

Tripod and Freckles are learning to share living space. Today they paid a visit to the groomer together, like good siblings. They are so cute! I do believe what The Boys say about animals being here to help balance the vibration of the planet. They definitely balance mine! It takes a few strokes on Tripod's face for all my worries and troubles to take a second place in my mind. Thinking about this, it is so easy, if you think about it, to balance your vibration. It only takes one deliberate step for the Universe to take ten thousand. You think one positive thought and the Universe brings you an avalanche of positive manifestations. You smile and the whole world smiles back at you. Think about Tripod. He lives the moment. Literally. Tripod is missing a limb but he's not crying about it. He doesn't whine or complain or try to inspire pity. He just goes about his day like nothing. Chasing squirrels, and also climbing on furniture when I'm not looking. He can climb on the Red Bullet like nothing. He even lifts his only hind leg to pee on trees! Every time I see him I think about the countless times I have let a broken heel or a lost button threaten the harmony of my day.

Today for some reason I thought about romantic love and how easy it is for us to confuse love with dependency. How easy it is to lose our vibrational balance and make others responsible for our happiness or our unhappiness. We fall in love with someone with whom we completely align. For a while we choose to only focus on the things about that person that are in complete alignment with us. We put the other person on a pedestal. We don't ask for anything because we feel abundant by this person's side. Just being with him or her makes us feel complete. We make them our excuse for being happy. And then one day we wake up on the wrong side of the bed and we decide that enough is enough; that we have been way too benevolent and "what is so-and-so doing for me?" "I give and what do I get in return." And so on! It seems like we take a 180 degree turn and go from being generous, magnanimous, adoring, loving ourselves and loving our partner, into a feeling of limitation, of lack. Comparing and measuring what we give against what we are receiving. We suddenly become aware of the lack. And so lack becomes a reality for us. Now we make them our excuse for walking away from our Inner Self, from our Source. And at the end of the day it is all a matter of choice (again, that pestering word!). At the end of the day it was all about focus! My dad used to say "It takes two to tango" and he was so right! If one chooses to remain happy with who he or she really is, with "self", then one can love and adore that other person forever and ever because the other person is not responsible for making us happy. We are. I am responsible for my own happiness! Woo-hoo!!!! I'm not kidding you. When I realized this for the very first time; when I really understood it, it was like if a huge weight had been lifted off of my shoulders. I did not have to wait for someone to come and want to make me happy! I could be happy regardless! Yeehaw again! And this knowledge attracts the best partners together. Right? Right!

Where did that come from and why? I'd love to know. I could've skipped including it here but I promised to write an honest blog and here it is. With pets and all.

To be faithful to our tradition, I will report on the Grasshopper. He's in a much better mood! We did not have our routine talk this morning as Diva was in charge of driving him. We are looking forward to the weekend and spending some time with friends. I am scheduled to start packing house this weekend. Something I really, REALLY, don't look forward to, but that I know that the Universe will find a way to make it easier and lighter on me.

Thank you for staying with me. Thank you for taking this journey by my side. I sense your presence and can almost feel your eyes rolling, sorry, reading! Hehehehe Now, seriously, you make me strong.

Day 10 – March 30, 2011

WE BROKE THE SINGLE DIGIT MARK!!! Woo Hoo!! I am not this consistent even with my personal diary (just kidding, just kidding). This is exciting. Thank you for your great support and for all the comments and emails. They really are a GREAT motivation to keep on going with this adventure. Don't run away yet; I'm in a much better place than I was yesterday (it wasn't such a bad place after all).

Today I chose to live in pure magic. Notice my choice of words. I did not say "today was magical," or "I thought today was magical,", but "I chose…" It went sort of like this: I woke up this morning and sat on my bed to meditate. 3:00 am give or take a few minutes. I meditated for about 30 minutes and then tried to go back to sleep, but my mind was so alert and active that I just couldn't fall asleep. I could tell my vibration had really been raised through meditation because I had a feeling inside of me that reminded me of when I was a little girl and the family was getting ready to go on vacation in a few days. It was a feeling of excitement and expectation. Do you remember how the other day I mentioned how the Universe had prepared me for what was to come on that particular day? Well, in a different way, I felt the same type of emotion this morning. And as I laid there on my bed, in the dark without being able to sleep I started stating my intentions for the day. I said to myself I would think positive things and look for the bright side of things and of people. I promised myself I would find my butterfly of the day and at least ten reasons to smile. But then I thought something else. What IF I wanted this day to be magical? What needs to happen in order to make this day different from any other? And the answer was right there in front of me. I only had to make it my intention to see the magic in the day. Well dear friends, it worked.

I fell back asleep and then cursed at the alarm clock and overslept. Got up, woke Mr. Grasshopper and rushed him and me out the door as soon as I could. Mr. Grasshopper has been leaning a little bit towards the drama side of things lately. It's a long story and I'll tell you all about it on another day. Please remind me if I forget to do it; I am so self-centered with this blog that I forget everybody else, hehe. Anyway, our drive to school was half fun-half drama, but it ended on a very good note. I remembered a funny story that he loves to hear, and we laughed together and told each other just how much we love and appreciate each other. Then, I rode with Miguel Bose and we sang all the way into work. Oh baby, we sounded GOOD! At work everything seemed to fall into place. Things ran smoothly and people in general were in a good place. I was able to get a lot of things done. And then…I saw HIM and he was very happy to see me. To me, HIM is a sight for sore eyes, I mean, for my eyes at least! This was just the icing on the cake (the chocolate cake). As unattainable as HIM may be, I still think he's gorgeous and would've been a great catch.

When I got home I found a package from the Ambassador. He sent me newspaper articles and a magazine with an article on him. It is amazing to see how far he has gotten. Is there anything higher or better? Who knows! Last time I saw him he said something that, to me, explained it all. He said: "when people ask me if I ever get tired of my job, I tell them I don't know, because I'm not working, I'm playing. I love what I do." And it shows! I am so very proud of him! We all are! I also spoke to Mr. Beatle! (Didn't I tell you that my day was magical?).

I am so happy for the Manager! She started blogging and her blog has the sweetness simplicity and elegance that she is. I just know it will be a great success.

Wait, it's not over yet. Then I had dinner with the members of the Star Chamber (I haven't come up with stage names for all of them, so for now, I will refer to them as "members"). It was so much fun. This is a group of people who have very bright minds and their hearts in the right place. They are true stars and the organizations for which each one of them works are very fortunate to have them. We grew closer thanks to a project we all worked in together about 7 years ago. The project dissolved, but the friendship remained. I do not believe that any of them is aware of my "other side", my channeling; but they have certainly enjoyed the benefits of having The Boys come through without being aware of it. Anyway, dinner was pure magic. The food was excellent and the conversation even better. I may have found my new home even! More on this to come later.

Now, this will top it all off. Trust me. Have you ever seen a butterfly flying at night? Well, I hadn't before tonight. Actually, I didn't even think that they could. But tonight, as I got back to the Palace, I was walking towards the front door when I felt something on my face; I waved my hand to brush it away and realized it was a Monarch. Doesn't that just blow your shoes off? Isn't that pure magic? I choose to see it that way. I made it happen by choosing my perspective on things!

Good night, Houdini. See you tomorrow!

Don't forget to comment!

Day 9 – March 29, 2011

Hello my dear friend! Thank you for being here again! I must be honest with you. This is probably the tenth greeting I have typed in tonight. Inspiration just does not seem to be on my side this evening. I know what the culprit was. I fell asleep in front of the TV and then woke up remembering there were dishes to clean, emails to respond and a blog to write. Hehehe The good thing about writing is that it is just like going to the gym, you just have to start. The rest is much easier.

Let's start at the beginning. This morning I was already worried about Tripod and Freckles when the Manager informed me that the forecast called for thunderstorms. That's all I needed. I panicked. I couldn't leave Freckles outside; they would fight and there was nobody at home to watch over them. A dark grey cloud of worry formed on top of my head and followed me all the way into work. First thing I noticed when I was a few blocks away from home was that I had forgotten the device. Uh oh, I thought to myself, this is NOT going to be good. My conversation with the Grasshopper was centered on worrying about the circumstances, my thoughts were focused on worrying and a general feeling of heaviness overcame me. No kidding! Was I in some sort of mood or what? I didn't even sing on my way to work! I don't know what came over me, but it was like if all of a sudden I lost all my faith and all my understanding of the way that the Universe works. Anyway, I got to work and you guessed right, the experiences started matching the mood I was in. Duh, what was I expecting? My mood started turning from bad into worse.

And then…. Aaaahhhhh! A light from the other side made its way into my life! I remembered that it was up to me to worry or to start moving into a lighter vibration. So I started working on that. I would lie to you if I said it was easy and that my mood improved in a matter of minutes. It took a little bit longer for me to be in a really good place, but all it took was a start. All it took was the first positive thought about my situation. The minute I told myself "There's really nothing you can do. Instead of feeling powerless about this situation, think that Freckles and Tripod are co-creators in this and that you all attracted each other into this relationship. So, if they are at home fighting, there's nothing you can do until you get home. Chill, Channel, Chill!" I took the first step towards feeling better. It never fails. It really works like magic. Before I knew it, I was joking with my Sassy friend and feeling ten times better than this morning. I cannot help it. I have to laugh at myself every time! It's amazing how long it takes me sometimes to align to the same messages that I interpret! J

On a brighter note, I am happy to report that I feel like a million dollars. Yes, you heard right. I feel like a million! I just knew you wanted to know this…

When I got home I found that the animal kingdom was in good order. The Manager and the Sensible One were here and nothing was out of place. It is so refreshing to know that I have so much love and support in my life! I am so fortunate!

Then I dragged Mr. Grasshopper to a much needed mane-cut. What a difference! I had actually forgotten how much handsomer he is now that I can see his face! Back at home I found a message from Mrs. Convert telling me about a small accident she had yesterday. Perfect excuse to call her! I love talking to her! I called her and we spoke for about 40 minutes on the phone. We are so attuned in so many ways, I thoroughly enjoy our conversations. As it happens, she apparently has a strong sense of gravity. She has experienced several close encounters of the third kind with the ground and yesterday was one of them. The positive side is that Mrs. Convert did not have any broken bones this time!

Then I called Ladylust to report on Mrs. Convert's mishap. She was busy visiting with Ms Pretty and admiring Little Butterball, so we didn't talk for long. Ladylust and I don't see each other very often but we check on each other almost every day. I adore being in her company! She is so funny! And she has some stories to tell! There is a bond between the three of us that will never be broken.

As I am typing this entry, Diva is sitting next to me. She would like for me to include a little bit of background on each character. I thought about it for a moment, and decided that for the moment, you are probably having more fun trying to decipher what kind of role each of these characters plays in my life.

I can't believe this has been day 9 already! See you tomorrow as we break the single digits!

Don't forget to leave us a comment or a suggestion!

Day 8 – March 28, 2011

Has this been a day or what? Hmmm! I don't even know where to start. One thing I can tell you for sure is that the way that this day is ending looks nothing like the way it started.

I believe that when you channel, you find that life challenges you to become more, even with the simplest of things. By this I mean that now everything
has a meaning. And when I say "everything" I mean everything. I can also tell you that my Inner Being, the Boys, The Universe, God, lets me know ahead of time when things are going to be interesting.

For instance, take today for example. This morning I just couldn't get up to meditate. I woke up at the regular time and without even thinking twice, I went right back to sleep. The morning routine with the Grasshopper was not much different than others. The mandatory "I don't want to feed the Tripod! Why don't you feed him today?" but in general, it went smoothly. We acted silly all the way to school and laughed a lot, we even had time to stop for a hot beverage of a certain brand along the way. So far so good. THEN, I get to work and my first impulse is to quickly go to the chapel and put in my 10 minutes of meditation. There's nothing weird about this, only that I had this weird feeling inside of me that felt like someone kept telling me "just in case." I turned the other cheek. I had some other "advances" during the day; little things that may seem irrelevant to you but that now that I look back I know they were not warnings, but more like notices letting me know things would not be as expected.

I came home and my first impulse was to find out if the Enlightened One was on Skype for a chat. I completely ignored the fact that he's 6 or 7 hours ahead of me! See? Another thing that was different from every day. To make a long story short, we had a very nice conversation. We always laugh a lot and he is usually full of practical advice. There Enlightened One and I go back a long way. That's a story I will touch on at a later date.

Here comes the meat of today's story. Be patient. I left work, and on my way to pick up the Grasshopper I listened to the messages on the device and found one from Grinch indicating he had left Freckles outdoors and that by now she was probably running low on food. He is out on a trip and won't be back for many days, so he was asking for me to go feed her. Mind you. Grinch lives 40 miles away from me. Driving over there was something I did not look forward to tonight. But I did. I called the Manager and we went to pick her up. That changed everything. I had plans of working on my book tonight and also on going to bed really early, but the Universe had other plans for me. The Manager cried all the way back home. She wanted Freckles to be with her or with me, where we could take care of her. So, we did what we do best, we called in The Boys! By the way, they are wonderful drivers. They told us that Freckles is exactly where she wants to be and that we should see this as an opportunity to spend time with her. That she has actually attracted this encounter with us. She's a joy to have around, but she had made Tripod super nervous. He just doesn't appreciate having other beings distracting my attention from him, and he makes that clear. I hadn't seen Freckles for 2 years. I've missed her so much! She used to be my baby when I lived 40 miles away! It's amazing how them, just like us, never forget their pets!

So, in retrospective, that impulse to go meditate first thing in the morning helped me be in a good vibrational place for when one person forgot her manners when she spoke to me; it helped me be even more excited about seeing someone from 10 years ago; it attracted my conversation with the Enlightened One who, even though was probably going to bed at that time, stayed up to talk to me and then, it also prevented me from destroying Grinch's reputation once and for all. That is what I mean. The Universe is constantly letting us know of what's up ahead, but we are so busy that we don't pay attention to those signs. I knew this morning that 'something' was going to be different today. I didn't know what or how it would happen, but I knew that I would definitely find out. I didn't feel apprehension or fear. I just 'knew'.

So… I have been talking for 8 days straight about me, myself and I. I personally am having a blast. But I would love to hear from you. Is there anything in particular that you want to hear about? We have time. 357 days to go!

Time to go. See you tomorrow? I certainly hope so!

Day 7 – March 27, 2011

I am so glad I decided to write this blog! I see now that one of the many reasons why I have to do this is to shed some light into some people's idea of what "the mission" of a channel is all about. Some people seem to be watching my every move and wondering why I am not doing more in order to bring the message to a larger audience.  A few months ago this was bothering me quite a bit, so much so that I even remained almost "unreachable" for a while, because I was not liking that kind of criticism; it was making me go against my flow. That is sooo funny! Nothing can make me do anything! But that was my perspective at the time. Very well, let's look at this from a non-physical perspective. The "job" of a channel is very easy. We just have to allow. If I understand the message that I convey the way it is supposed to be, I do not need to do absolutely anything. All I have to do is live and let live, and the means will be provided, the doors will open and the people will come. Exactly as it has been happening for the past 3 years. I think the most appropriate word here would be to "chill". I'm not supposed to be looking out for the means to bring the message to more people; however, by me softening my resistance, by me aligning more and more with the message, by me allowing my own energy to flow, I keep the doors open so that those who are seeking this message can more easily access it. But this action is not unilateral! Those who are seeking are the most important part of this co-creation, and they MUST be in alignment with this message in order to find it. The Boys have said it ad nauseum, they are here not because I bring them, not because we must be lectured, but because those who ask have come into alignment with the message. There! I just got off the hook, LOL.
I love Sundays because I start my day with the Sunday morning call. If you have never been on the call, you should make it a point to be at least on one of them. The energy during those calls is flying so high that magic actually happens sometimes. Aaaahhhhhhhh!!!!!! (As Melody Mountain would put it) Pure bliss! We have our "regulars" and every now and then a new person joins us on the call. But everyone contributes to the amazing energy that builds up. MA-GI-CAL.
Today The Boys were specific about them being here. They said "we don't come down to play with you, we come out to play!" I don't know about you, but to me it meant a lot.

After the call, Grasshopper and I went to have a gigantic brunch. He had been asking to go to this particular establishment for many months now and today was the day. We enjoyed it so much! But by the time we left, I was ready to fall back asleep! So much food! We took some food to the Diva, who was very, very appreciative of it; then we went to the movies and watched a great show. Picked up the Manager, had a lovely visit at home. We summoned The Boys and played for a short while with them and then the Manager left us.
That's really it for my Sunday. A nice, relaxing day. This week I have a lot of work to do, so I am mentally preparing for it. Now I'm going to call my good friend Mrs. Yum for updates on the latest gossip and then off to bed.
Hope you have a lovely week. See you tomorrow!
