Happy Father’s Day (to our dads on Earth or in Heaven)

Father’s Day can be a happy day, filled with picnics, cards and nice things you for or with our dads. Father’s Day can also be tough. Your dad may be deceased or may not be someone you have ever spoken to. Dad might be fully participating in your life or not in it at all. Dad can be the best dad on the planet, or he might not be someone you’d pick as your friend.

But no matter how you feel about Dad, HE had something important to do with giving you life. There is ALWAYS something to be grateful for. Sometimes it may be not be very easy and just thinking of Dad might make you said. If your dad is in Heaven right now, he is there with my dad.

If you’ve read my book, We Don’t Die, you know I believe in life after death and that our dads are still around. You know about ‘remote viewing’ and the ‘power of prayer.’ Even if your dad is alive and you haven’t spoken to him in years, I believe that you can quiet your mind and have a conversation with him and a part of him will hear it.

There are no guarantees, I know, but take a few minutes today and thank Dad for the gift that he gave the world, YOU. You are special and there is no one like you! No matter where your dad is, either pick up the phone, give him a hug, quiet your mind and have a conversation with him across the universe. Trust that he will receive it.

For all of you dads reading this, know you are special and you’ve made a difference to people. Happy Father’s Day!

Do We Disappear or Do We Just Change Form?

Since the beginning of time, I imagine humans have been asking “What happens to us after we die?” I took a walk today and couldn’t help but ponder how many things change form, but still exist in one way or another.

This gigantic boulder was the first thing that made me think. If this rock is as old as the earth, it may be 4.5 billion years old. To you and me it looks like just a piece of rock, but if we broke it into the tiniest bits imaginable, it would only be vibrating strings of energy.

As I continued my walk I came to this pile of firewood. Each piece had once started as a part of a tree. The tree had started as an acorn or some other kind of seed. Nourished by water and earth, the energy within the tree cause it to grow big and strong. Now, although the tree has been chopped down, energy still exists within the wood. Throw a match on it and the energy burns and changes form into fire which is heat. Is the energy gone or did it just change form? Next I came to a puddle, that was almost dried up after the rain we recently had. It will only be a day or two of hot weather and there won’t be any trace of the water. Does it mean that the water died? Or does it mean that it just changed form and evaporated and still exists as the energy it consisted of?

I ended my walk thinking about these flowers. Beautiful! The exact color with the sun shining on them just doesn’t translate well in the picture. Made me think that we will only have a short time to enjoy the beauty in front of us. However, when things disappear it doesn’t mean they are gone for good. They either turn to energy like fire, water may come back as rain, and flowers may start new life and bring beauty again.

There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.”

– Albert Einstein

Loveability and love-ability

Happy Sunday. At 6:44 AM I did my usual routine of glancing at emails, checking out Facebook and Twitter posts and even trying to figure out the world of Google+. I happened to see a post from Dr. Robert Holden aka @drrobertholden and did a little of my usual iphone investigation. Dr. Holden is the author of a book called Loveability. Without too much thought I downloaded it on kindle and started reading.

As much as I’d love you to believe I wanted to read this book so I could inspire you in your life, I am reading it for me. To the world I appear like I have it all together, that my life is awesome, ready for my book tour and inspiring the world with my best-selling book. The quote I read this morning more sums up me:

“Make sure your worst enemy doesn’t live between your own two ears.”¬† –Laird Hamiliton

You see, in between my own two ears lives a voice constantly reminding me that I’m not enough, less than other people and most often says “I’m unlovable.” Of course, my higher self knows that this is untrue, yet as my dad always say “Actions speak louder than words.” Here’s the facts: 47 years old, single, haven’t had a date with a man in a long time, overweight, messy bedroom, and petting my cat Harry, watching ‘The Voice’ on television and some low fat Edy’s chocolate brownie ice cream seem to be my regular comforts. Needless to say, I bought the Loveability book as I know there’s something missing in the area of “self love.”

In the beginning of the book a woman asks Dr. Holden “So how do you find love?” His response, “Well, first you have to recognize that you are what you’re looking for.”

Contemplating that sentence has started opening me up to self love this morning. I AM WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR. Generous, caring, fun, strong, creative, dependable, and smart are some of the words people use to describe me. Yes, I would love to be loved by someone like me! This is the opening for my own self love, I think. Sandra falling in love with Sandra.

What are the kind words people use to describe you? How are you doing at self love? I tend to think a new world is possible with perhaps some new results for each of us. Ok, enough blogging for me. Back to reading Loveability now. Thanks for writing it Dr. Robert Holden!

How to Wake Up Your TRUE Self Every Day

Do you have those mornings that you don’t want to get out of bed? That you’d rather be on some remote beach out in the middle of nowhere. You’re thinking about all the responsibilities that you have and things on your to-do list? You are dreading the day?

When the thoughts get overwhelming and before you hit the ‘snooze’ button, take 5 minutes and wake up your TRUE self our ‘Soul Self.’

First, know that our minds are mostly on autopilot. There’s a voice we all have in our head that is constantly chatting away, mostly with unempowered thoughts. We cannot make that voice go away, but we can put it in the ‘back seat’ and let your Soul Self take the wheel for a little while. You want to start your day off right? Here’s what you do:

Have a note pad next to your bed. When you wake up spend a couple minutes answered these 3 questions:

  1. What am I grateful for?
  2. What successes have I had?
  3. What do people love about me?

Taking just 5 minutes to write down those answers will change your outlook on your day, I promise. Remember, you are not the person that you think you are. You are the person that other people see you as who has accomplished all of those things! You are more powerful than you give yourself credit for. So, spring out of bed and have a great day!

We Don’t Die – And Neither Do Our Animals

I sit here looking through old pictures on my computer. I cannot help but notice all the pictures of Millie and Ozzie, the precious cats that I got to love for so many years.

Millie was a stray cat that showed up on our doorstep on a cold winter’s night back in 2001. I had been scratched pretty badly by a cat as a kid, and remember when Millie showed up at my house. Only fear was present and I wanted nothing to do with this cat. However, not wanting to harm one of God’s creatures, I put some water, tuna and a box with a blanket outside, so she would not freeze to death. The next day when I opened my front door wide to clean the things up, Millie sprang out of now where and leaped into the house. That’s not the only place she went, she crept deep inside my heart.

Millie was ‘with child’ when she appeared and soon gave birth to baby Ozzie. What a joy it was watching this kitten mature into the handsome cat he grew up to be. Unfortunately, our boy got very sick joined my dad in heaven, who had passed away the month before.

Two years later we lost sweet Millie, too. She had pancreatitus, and couldn’t be saved. The tears of losing Millie reignited all the grief of losing my dad, my grandmother and Ozzie. Thankfully, I turned to my own book for comfort. Truthfully, I didn’t want to, because I thought I knew the words. However, 7 hours later I was not only comforted, I was sure that Millie was in a great place with no pain and plenty of butterflies to run after. She was reunited with her son, Ozzie and my dad and grandmother are keeping an eye on her until it is my turn to cross over.

We don’t die and neither do our pets. We will see them soon enough. I am grateful for the time I have had with them, as I learned so much about myself.

Here is on of my favorite poems:

The Rainbow Bridge 

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….
