If I am to be completely honest, I’m not feeling too fun at the moment. I have always been accused by my clients and most friends of being “too happy”. A dear client who transitioned at 86 used to say “OH NO, here comes Ms. Happy” when I showed up twice a week to put her through the exercise paces. The last thing she wanted to do with COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) was see me and yet it was the high point in her day.
I think of her today and the many I have lost over the years ( B.C. before covid) that were so near and dear to my heart. Some of them who had weathered the storms of the ages and some not able to see their kids graduate and I know they would be turning over in their graves right now with the current state of affairs in our country,
I stay happy because I usually stay away from the news and don’t allow toxic informaion that I have no control over to invade my psyche. I energetically stay positive and send energy by tapping into divine truth that raises my level of counsousioness and recharges me so I can be a conduit for others to do the same. It does no good to go down the tubes when I know that healing is going on at it’s deepest level and cleansing out the toxity in a situation is vital, no matter how ugly it gets. We have a choice, we can align with the divine and be a vessle for light and love to enter through darkness or we can let it envelop us.
I was glued to the news inbetween clients and shaken like most people I know, as we watched the unfathomable of breaking into our capital and vandalizing sacred ground incited by our leaders. I’m not here to talk politics. This is a deep time of mourning no matter what you are for or against and violence and threatening our democracy no matter what, is deplorable and never ok. So, I guess you would say, I’m in shock and mourning.
I decided on January 1rst that I would write a quote everyday this year and at the end of the year, if I don’t have the book I’m workng on ready, I will have a book of meditative quotes from the year. I wrote this for next year.
Jan. 6th 2021
Let the music of silence fill your heart with stillness
The lyrics might be out of tune and your ears might need to filter out
The noises all around you
Surrender and let go as you dance through your day in light and love.
It’s hard to ignore voices of the outside world especially in despicable acts of violence trying to drown out truth.
How do me maintain composure and honor and do what’s right, when every ounce of you wants to retaliate?
It’s not easy to be witness to the atrocities of the world, destruction, violence, greed, anger, racism, rape; whatever the case may be. Last year today it was an assault to our democracy in America. Wherever you live, who ever you are, you know the feeling of being a victim of unjust behavior. We have every right to feel sad, scared and angry and yet we must remember that truth prevails and light overshadows darkness.
Our own inner world and mind can be as damaging to ourselves as what happens in the outside world.
Close your eyes and breath and ignite the light so we together can collectively find peace amidst chaos and confusion. Breath in and breath out as you settle the restlessness in your bones, so you can be part of the solution not the problem.
Sing a song of joy and goodness as you ignite the light.
On a happy note, I ended up staying home while my husband and son headed to the lake last night so I could take care of my soul on a deep level and enjoy the stillness of the morning. I’ll head up later but in the meantime, the morning is heaven as it always is when the sun comes to greet the day and I’m cuddled in, nestled between the sheets with my beloved cats.
I’ll be wandering to the lake soon after meditaion and my morning ritual of writing and the fun will begin. However you find yourself, honor your feelings and heart and treat yourself well. Enjoy your weekend and find respite no matter what’s going on in your world. I’ll see you on Monday with some exercise tips and an interview that Yvette from Priorhouse did on me, in case you haven’t seen it yet.
And have fun. After all, it’s Friday Funday and someone has to do it, so it might as well be you.
Stay Blessed, be bold and know you are love.
Thanks so much for reading and Please remember to like (if you do of course), comment and or share if you are inclined. It’s so much appreciated.
Hello my friend
The quote a day is a great idea and will lead to a good book! Oh Cindy / what a great idea to do that – like a small step a day!
And I hear you about watching the news – it can be overwhelming and filled with lies
– or just too heavy to say the least
Thanks sooo much! I haven’t missed. a day yet So that’s a good sign!! Kind of like exercise.
It’s a way to have it feel tangable and doable.
Omg you are sooo right.. Now I see why I didn’t watch it for years!
you are a gem!
You are a gem too!
awww thats so much Yvette!!! ❤️
So many cats. They are all so cute. I always had a question what exactly is democracy? The meaning to which I have never got in reality. Anyways being a human being, time moves on, life never stops. Sun shines bright, Moon never leaves the sight.
One is my daughters who was visiting. Oh good question… I always thought I knew. Have differences but come on people let’s not be destructive… that would be it for me.. acceptance of our differences and yes, thank God for the sun and the moon and the stars that shine their light on us daily! Thanks for that! ♥️
Wow. I too will have a cat and a dog soon I believe.
Welcome always 🙂 (Heart)
Ohhhhhh that’s sooo exciting ❤️❤️❤️👏👏Make sure you take pics and post them!!!! I can’t wait to see them. !!!!!!
Ah me too excited and can’t wait to have them in my life. Will surely once I get them. 😀
What kind of dog are you getting? Good you are getting a cat and dog at the same time to accliomate them. 👏
I am thinking of adopting one each. Lets see when I head for this quest. 🙂
That’s a great time for bonding!!!! do it.. lol.. easy for me to say.. 🤣🤣
Lovely post, Cindy. <3
I note that you were troubled by the Capitol mob, but not owned by it. You moved through it 🙂
Totally and yes for sure, moved through it with trepidation of days ahead. Thanks for visiting Paul!!! ♥️
Very welcome 🙂
🤗 Hope to see you Friday.. Really loved doing this post.. ❤️
This was such a timely write and I especially loved how you said, “We have a choice, we can align with the divine and be a vessle for light and love to enter through darkness or we can let it envelop us.” I hope everything turns out well in the end ❤️
Your cats look so adorable! 😍

Yeah that link apparently didn’t work but it did for me.. so I took it down for now. and Hopefully, people will find My Heaven Meets hell. I posted it yesterday but it say 2 days ago. odd
I saw the heavens meets hell post and figured it’s the one, confused me a bit when you asked if I saw your today’s post to😏
You can however change the date on a post. When you do this, it publishes on the reader a fresh.
