Day 132 - August 11, 2011

Have you ever stopped to wonder when did life changed course from where you thought it was going? Well, let me tell you: you are definitely not alone.  Just this morning, as I was sitting in the lawroom, waiting for YourBenchman to show up, I had one of those flashes of I-don't-know-what.  He he.  I was sitting there, looking around at all the activity going on around me. Humans coming and going, dressed in their best war suits, trying to out-do each other in an unspoken competition, when I realized that a few months ago I would've never dreamed I would be here.  This was definitely not in my plans.  I mean, not at all!  Last trip around the sun, when I left my gainful employment, my thoughts were focused 100% in The Boys.  I thought I was taking a leap into the arms of Spirit and letting the Boys carry me away.

Let me tell you how that all started.  I had not been all that happy at my place of gainful employment, however, happy enough to remain there until the Universe opened a new door for me.  Well, the thing about being willing to let the universe surprise you is that IT DOES!  One day as I was sitting at my labor table I had this moment of clarity. I felt like I was being carried by a wave that I was not going to be able to stop and the thoughts that kept coming to my mind were thoughts of leaving that place of labor behind.  I ignored the thoughts for a little bit, but the thought would resurface when I least expected and every day they were more and they were stronger.  Until one day I have to say that I was almost led by the hand.  I was working away and then I just felt the urge to pick up the phone, call my upyoubyone and request a face-to-face.  And so we did, we met and I informed her of my decision.  I was leaving my gainful activities.  As I walked out of her box I felt a wonderful feeling of relief; that same feeling was replaced with a profound feeling of fear that same evening! (thankfully, just for a few minutes!).  Anyway, why was I telling you all this?  Oh! Yes!  Now I remember! Because I thought the I was being led to do something extraordinary with The Boys and as it turned out, I am doing a lot of extraordinary things with my personal life.  Now, don't get me wrong. I am doing AMAZING things with The Boys. Just the fact that I channel is already amazing.  But what I meant to say is that I did not picture myself doing this type of activity by now.  I'm just saying...

I'm not complaining, because these activities bring their own set of satisfactions and I am enjoying the ride tremendously. But do you see what I mean by letting the Universe surprise me?  Wheeze!  Am I surprised or what?  Now more than ever I am open and excited, or rather, I am in expectation to see what else the Universe is bringing to me.  Life is sooooooooo darn good!

this 7-day period is coming to a close and I must confess to you that I am not looking forward to the next 7-day period.  Diva is taking off to her new adventure!  Yes!  Isn't that amazing?  I am so excited and happy for her and at the same time, the very human side of me, is holding her breath. Don't worry, I don't hold it for too long.

Well, my dear friend, it's time to hit the nest.  I hope you had not been missing me too much!

Take a few minutes to breathe deeply and appreciate YOU!

Day 131 – August 9, 2011

Ladies and gentlemen! Boys and girls! Tomorrow is a big day for our dear Grasshopper as he starts the first day of his Not-Lowschool. I must report to you that Mr. G is a little bit on the anxious side of things but excited as can be. So…Everybody: cast those magic spells, send those positive thoughts of love and flow to the Grasshopper! (I told him I would do this..hehe).

As far as I am concerned, I had a pretty good day. It started by going to a house of law with the Grinch in order to settle old discrepancies. Everything went well and HisBenchman was very nice. We were out of there in no time. That felt so good! It was like having this pending matter dangling over there. Now it is settled! Thank you Universe!!! Mr. Grinch was actually using is Mr Charming fascia today so we had a nice conversation.


 

Yesterday the day was spent working at the other lawhouse for a new YourBenchwoman. It was an intense day as far as work is concerned but a learning one and I always appreciate that. I did crash and burn on the nest almost immediately after I got home. I had been up since the ungodly hour that follows 2 am and was leaning heavily on the tired side of the scale. This morning I felt like a million Washingtons!

Oh! You're going to laugh. Guess what I was hearing on my way to the lawhouse? Aretha's R-E-S-P-E-C-T. Now, is that empowering or what. It seems to me that it was also fitting to the situation!

Oh, I saw my butterfly today!!! Yay for butterflies!!! It is so nice to see that the Universe is with me ALL THE TIME. Now I shall retire, have a little time with The Boys, and then… off to another amazing conference with the fluffy!!!

I hope your world is as magical as mine. By the way, thank you for sharing your story about the butterfly up in the snow. It was priceless!!!

Days 129 & 130 – August 6 & 7, 2011

It's funny how sometimes we mask our own emotions from ourselves because we don't want to face the fact that the emotions that we are holding may not be all that positive. We put our best foot forward in hopes that that not-so-positive emotion will dissolve and become a thing of the past. And many times that is exactly what happens. There are other times, though, when you think you've got it all figured out and it only takes a word or a song to bring all those emotions right up to the surface. That has been the case with the imminent departure of Diva to the city that never sleeps. I had been putting my best face about this whole thing and really ignoring the fact that deep inside (not that deep, actually) I felt this profound not-so-positive feeling in my stomach about it. Well, the day before this one I met with a non-related relation whose offspring is taking off to the city of romance. His idea of the journey is similar to that of Diva. He is pursuing a dream. He wanted to have a chat with The Boys prior to leaving and so I stopped by to see them. After his chat with The Boys, my dear non-related relation unloaded her fears and sadness about his upcoming departure. Everything was fine and dandy until she said: "Just to think that he is moving out; he is leaving the house and I won't be able to see him walk in the door every day; that kills me." That's all it took for me to realize that I had been hiding these very same feelings under a cover of excitement for her. So later in the evening, when I got to the palace and was having a conference with the fluffy, I allowed myself to let those tears roll and get it out of my system. That too is a form of relieve and I so appreciated the fact that I was able, first to recognize that those feelings were lurking somewhere in the back of my thinking apparatus, and second that I allowed them to come out in the form or water from my eyes. I'm not going to say that now I am ecstatic about her departure, but I can tell you that I feel much more at ease. And you want to know something? Meditation is the key. I'm not kidding! If it weren't for the daily meditation dose, I truly think that I would be a basket case by now. You see, meditation gives you that edge; that powerful stance that keeps you standing when you feel like breaking down into tiny little pieces. I know some of you are thinking "But you broke down and cried." I see crying not as self pity but as an escape valve. It was my way of letting go of the resistance that was building up inside of me. Once I was able to do that, then the resistance disappeared.


And so, having taken that out of the way… let me remember what else happened this weekfinal? Well, Lord 1 and Lord 2 were out and offered for us to play in their water hole. So we asked the Manager and the Sensible One to come join us. It was the Sensible One's anniversary of his arrival to the hologram, so we made that our excuse for an impromptu get together. Only us. It was so much fun and so rewarding. THANKS TO THE UNIVERSE FOR AMAZING NEIGHBORS! As we were having a good time around the H2O my dear butterfly came by to greet us. She was small and of a very pale yellow color. Just lovely. The weather has been so not-cold lately that I haven't seen many of our friends around, so I took it as a sign that the Universe is paying close attention.


Today was the perfect example of a lazy Sunday. I woke up at the regular ungodly hour to do the phone work, then I went back to slumber for little longer, then had our amazing Sunday Morning Call, and then went right back to the nest and slumbered for about 3 more hours. Mmmmmmmmmm! That felt heavenly!!! The rest of the day was spent enjoying the palace and the offspring. I can't think of a better way to spend my time, can you?


Now it's time to join our dear friend fluffy and drift away into slumber. Loved talking to you again.
Hasta mañana!
