Timeframe for Grief

candle-heartIs it even possible for things to get ‘back to normal’ after someone you love passes? I don’t think so. I have found that with the passing of a loved one, a friend, and even an acquaintance, there is no going back to the way things were when they were still here with us. There’s nothing normal about life anymore – even things as simple as eating their favorite foods, going to the mall, a meeting, or a gathering  where we’re surrounded by others, and certainly communicating with people take on a whole new perspective and meaning.

When my father passed more than 20 years ago, it shook up the lives of our whole family, the community of friends my parents had created, and everyone who was involved with our business. To this day, I still wonder what life would have been like for us had he not passed at the tender age of 52.

There’s simply no way to know.

And guessing about or dwelling on this can make a person a little bit crazy.

Of course, life does go on. And so does death. In the past year, many people I have been close to over the years have left this earthly plane. Most recently, with the passing of my beautiful nephew Sean, I am reminded that life is uncertain, and that we are guaranteed nothing in terms of time in these physical bodies. We only have today, and there’s no ‘back to normal’ at all. Instead…

There’s a Whole New Normal

What’s a ‘new normal’? It’s whatever we’re living right now. And it’s totally our call. It’s an individual choice, and it’s not a one-time thing. It’s a moment-by-moment decision. We can keep on doing what we’re doing and trying to live how we’ve always lived in spite of the void or we can make some changes.

In my experience, most people balance between the two – trying to maintain some kind of ‘normal life’ and wondering what that really looks like.

There’s No Right or Wrong Answer.

Everyone is different. We must honor ourselves as we go through the grieving process. We must feel our way through and find what works for us. And mostly we must create for ourselves a ‘new normal’ that has at least some semblance of truly living.

As for me, I find that I am in a heightened state of awareness and I am allowing myself room to explore options that I have previously considered off-limits or ‘crazy-thinking’. I recognize the preciousness of life and want to live it fully – whatever that means in the moment I’m in.

Now is the Time for Allowing.

I wish for anyone who is grieving that you allow yourself these same freedoms. Be gentle with yourself and those you love. Remind yourself that life is a gift and a mystery, and that you get to choose what you do and how you feel in each moment. Hug your family, your partner, and your friends – and hug your co-workers too.

Life has brought us together on this planet for a Divine reason. Let’s lovingly embrace our physical co-existence for as long as we have it – and our Spirit connection forever.

I invite you to share in the lessons I’ve learned over the years by reading my new book, Powerful Intention Everyday gratitude Book II. It is a daily guide for living with intention and gratitude. Visit my website for details: www.SueUrda.com Enjoy!

Namaste`, Blessings, and Peace

Generalizations, Clumping, and Judgment

We are all OneAs humans we tend to group things. Our brains systematically categorize, rate, and even judge whatever or whoever is in front of us at any given moment – assessing the situation for danger or safety, acceptance or rejection, and where we go from here.

Within a matter of seconds, and sometimes even a split second, we clump people and things based on our past experiences and observances – and then we act accordingly.

Usually Our Brains Serve Us

In a surprisingly short time, we make decisions as to whether or not to move forward or retreat. We quickly determine if someone will be our friend or rival, confidante or enemy, collaborator or competitor. And within moments, our prejudices, fears, insecurities and judgments weigh in and our lives take a turn on a dime – unfortunately often based on misconceptions and generalizations.

Why Are We So Quick to Judge?

I recently found myself observing someone make a very harsh statement and rush to judgment about another individual based solely on his nationality. He said something like, “You gotta watch out for those _________.” (Fill in the blank with whatever nationality comes to mind.) He continued, “I don’t trust them as far as I can throw them. I know they’re not all like that but you can’t be too careful.”

I was in disbelief and disgust and I made a comment to the effect that we can’t judge everyone based on their culture or on our experiences with other individuals. I was met with, “Well, I can.”

The Past Does Not Equal the Future

This phrase is a quote from Anthony Robbins, and it can be extended to making snap judgments and generalizations. Just because we have a certain experience with one person, it doesn’t extrapolate to all people of the same nationality, gender, class, size, sexuality… the list goes on. One person does not define a whole group of people.

When we set such limiting beliefs for ourselves, we are limiting our experiences in this world. By not getting to know others as individuals, we set ourselves up for relationships that are not only less interesting, but ones that keep us confined to our ‘comfort zone’, and so we limit our overall growth as individuals.

We Are Each Unique and We are More Alike than We Are Different

Encountering situations with people like I mentioned above has opened my own eyes to my own prejudices and preconceived notions. Even though I think I am open-hearted and loving, and I aspire to see people at the soul level, I know I have been guilty of clumping and generalizing too. I can look back and see how this way of thinking has limited my life experiences.

I am willing to open myself to the possibility that I can free my mind of judgment while still maintaining a discerning mindset. As a perfectly flawed woman, I am open to see the flaws of others as individuals and forgive them along the way if they have judged me – perhaps unfairly clumping me into a group to which I don’t really belong.

We Are All One

These words haunt me a little bit right now, because I don’t want to admit that I am one with the individual I wrote about earlier who was so harsh a judge based on close-minded, bigoted thinking, and yet, I know it is the truth. We ARE all one and we ARE more alike than we are different.

At the same time, we are all unique and singular individuals. I celebrate our similarities and our differences. I know we are all brought together in this life experience for a reason that may be beyond our current grasp of understanding. And I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that we can all be clumped into a singular category as children of God. I take comfort in this knowing, and I strive to open myself to all that is.

I Invite You to Dwell in this Knowing and Openness too

With lots of soul love for you, Sue

Living Beyond Judgment

How many times have you said or heard someone say, “I don’t mean to be judgmental but…” It’s often the precursor to an interpretation about someone else or a situation. Let’s face it: being non-judgmental isn’t easy. It’s human nature to process what another person says or does and label it as good or bad or right or wrong based on our own value system. We are trained throughout our lives to see things from one perspective—our own—and to label people’s actions, situations and circumstances through that lens. What if we readjusted our lenses to a new vision— a vision that has the clarity to see that every individual is on a personal journey, experiencing life exactly and perfectly for him/herself. This doesn’t mean we have to agree; it simply means that we acknowledge a person’s choices as his/her own, even if we would choose differently ourselves. Is it possible to be completely non-judgmental? I believe the mastery is in the journey. That moment of awareness when a thought of judgment enters your mind is a time for pause and reflection. Being aware of the thought will eventually lead to a new understanding, greater acceptance, and deeper love. Like anything we want to master, it takes practice. And the more we practice living beyond judgment the more we can open our hearts to others.

Nobody Knows Like Your Body Knows

Senior-Woman-Yoga-230x300You want answers and you want them now.  And you don’t want just any old answer; you want the right answer for your specific inquiry right now.  When you consult your thinking mind, you will find a good deal of information.  Your mind will guide you to the pros and cons, it will lead you through all your past experiences that relate to the question at hand, and it will provide all the options that are available.  Is this really what you want?  Lots and lots of options?  No.  You want the answer that is perfect for you, and you want it right now.

There is one sure-fire place that this answer exists – no exceptions.

It is within you.

The tricky part may be to access the answer.  How can you do this?  Three simple steps:  Get quiet, ask the question, and feel the signals that your body provides.  If the answer is right for you, you will feel lightness or a warmth.  You may get a tingling or a feeling of peace.  If the answer is not right, you may get a pit in your stomach or a random pain, or a sense of uneasiness.  Your body signals are unique to you.  With practice, you can even ask your body for a specific signal as a yes or no – like your right hand to rise or a tingling in your chest area.  What is happening is that you are accessing the internal guidance system that exists within you.  This guidance system will always provide the right path for you.

You must simply tune in. 

Now, that’s Powerful!

My Spirit Groans

As I headed out around 6am to take a walk I embraced the beauty of the skies. The clouds seemed to be so perfectly formed as I grasped the magnificence of their overwhelming beauty. I am in awe of the Creator. In awe of the fact that the moon and the sun, even though out of their normal position in the skies continues to take my breath away. The entire universe is shifting. As the skies continue to shift I know that there has been a shift in spiritual realm which has hit the earth realm. This is the calm before the storm, but OH, the glory of it all.

Sometim111es I wish I could just fly up to the clouds and play in them. I would love to be able to just take off at will, but that time will come. Todah Yah. I praise the Most High God in the beauty of holiness and in all of HIS GLORY. I feel your love. I look forward to the day you that you will take us out of here. I know that something has got to happen soon. Your love for us ignites me in my spirit. I know, that with no doubt, that I need only you and that because of you, everything is, that is.

We cannot control what is happening in the heavenly realm, but we can control what is happening within ourselves, our spirit man. At the end of the day, The Most High God is all we have and the heavenly hierarchy which is laid up before us, is at hand. The more beautiful the skies become, the closer we are to what is coming. Embrace the Most High God for He embraces you. Stop embracing self, stop embracing things. Allow yourself to operate on that higher spiritual frequency level called love. Live and breath love. My spirit groans to become one with His creation. Selah.

shining your light + not playing small :: what mark will you leave on the world?

How will I be remembered?

It’s a question I’ve pondered many times this year and analyzed, when a close friend died tragically over a decade ago. About a month prior to her death, we were on the phone, at the time she was working through “stuff”, I listened. I had no idea it was the last time we’d ever speak again.  Before saying goodbye, I’ll never forget Dana’s last three words of gratitude for our friendship were, “you inspire me”. That was it. About a month later, I got the devastating news.

This year was tough, the sudden loss of my Grandmother in March- she was “my moon + my stars”, nearly losing our son three days before his high school graduation, due to a freak accident – a clip to the side, while playing flag football, then death of my Aunt in July. I made the decision to take time to go inward… to catch my breath. With memorial services, a family reunion and Shane leaving for college in just over a month, this was the perfect time to self- reflect, re-frame my life and take stock of priorities.

See No Color and my coaching practice, was close to launch, I had worked tirelessly preparing, but was this the right thing, at the right time?

Many of my friends, family and acquaintances had lived through similar circumstances over the last two years.  I wasn’t alone in the myriad of experiences and obstacles that challenge our faith: divorce, finances, jobs, illness, death, or simply just feeling “stuck”.  I accepted quiet solitude and the knowing that I could access family and the dearest of friends, by simply “being” with people and basking in their presence. Life seemed to just “show up” for me in the most unexpected ways, offering renewed confidence, in the life I’d created and a sense of belonging. The idea that adverse circumstances and situations often times are the impetus of reframing our existence is a powerful one.

     During times of personal crisis, it begs the question…

What innate gifts do I possess? How plentiful are my emotional reserves, will I be remembered, am I significant?  When you are conscious in this life, are aware that there is no time to waste, are willing and ready to receive by bravely letting go of fear + realizing your inherent gifts: LIFE PRESENTS ITSELF. 

Shine on baby.

A quote from author and minister Marianne Williamson, from A Return To Love.  Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world .  There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Whatever Your Calling, It is God’s Work

sue4There are some people who say “I have a vocation” or “I have a calling” or “I know that what I am doing is my purpose in life”. I used to be envious of these people until I realized that they are no different than anyone else on this earth, and they are certainly no different than me. These people simply had allowed themselves to be open to their purpose – and actually it’s even more than that…they have allowed themselves to decide what their purpose is.

Every thought, word and deed is a step towards your purpose.

What I have come to know is that each of us IS fulfilling our purpose whether we know it or not.  Now you might think that, given your current circumstances, you couldn’t possibly be fulfilling your purpose or doing God’s work. Maybe you don’t see yourself in a position of strength or having accomplished what you know is possible for you. Maybe you feel like you are floundering or that what you are doing isn’t important enough to be your purpose in life. Here’s the thing … whatever is happening in your life right now is exactly what is supposed to be happening for you. It is the direct result of every thing you have done and every thought you have thought. If things were supposed to be different for you – they would be. This is the divine design of the Universe. There is no other way.

So what is your purpose?  Your purpose is whatever you decide it is. It is not magic. There is not ‘the one thing’ that is set in stone as your life purpose. The truth is that people choose their purpose by making a decision to follow their guidance – whether they allow this guidance to come from their heart or their mind is of no consequence. As soon as the decision is made and you begin to move towards it, you are on the right path for you. No matter what.

Your purpose is your choice. Choose to love it.

co-creating your dharma + desire ::

Dharma or (Destiny): Our true place in the cosmic process. Desire: The true meaning: “of or guided by the (sire) stars”.

What is Desire? Have you ever experienced the rush of desire; that feeling of passion for someone or something you cannot wait to wake up or go home to? The healthy exuberance of creative possibility, or the excitement of the artistic unknown: a life that’s self-actualized by your own design is attainable, if you’re in tune with your dharma, destiny or calling. Have you wondered why some people make what seems so out of reach, so undeniably effortless? The answer: Unwavering Belief + Desire. They’re not seeking outside approval, nor do they spend time scrutinizing the actions of others; so passionate about what they desire they are unrelenting at setting their own bar, bunkering down and staying their course.

Co-creating a life you take pride in, is to be willing and open to the potential for possibility or failure, but in the inherent knowing that your power lies deep within. It’s all there and always has been. To seek external approval is as to deem ourselves unworthy and undeserving. It is the furthest point from “the divine”, that we can be. It can automatically throw walls up for failure. The onus and responsibility to guide our own course, is on us and only us. To do right by ourselves not only betters us, but betters society as a whole and solidifies the concept of self-sustainability and interconnectedness.

To follow our heart’s desire, hold every encounter every experience with reverence, as it is our dharma or cosmic blueprint; that demonstration of faith and strength sometimes shows itself, in the unknown. It too, can even be in the uncertainty that a shred of proof exists. We have the potential to become the co-creators and Rembrandts of our lives.

You can do this. I PROMISE.

We can either watch life from the sidelines OR ACTIVELY PARTICIPATE…. Either we let SELF-DOUBT and FEELINGS OF INADEQUACY prevent us from realizing our potential, or embrace the fact that when we turn our attention away from ourselves, OUR POTENTIAL IS LIMITLESS.” ~ Christopher Reeve

Christmas Unplugged – Using the Law of Attraction to Create Your Holiday, Your Way

Christmas Unplugged LogoThe Law of Attraction, What is it?

The Law of Attraction is a powerful universal law that affects everything in your life and the lives of those around you.  It is similar to gravity, it is always there, it is working in your life right now. You probably have heard the Law of Attraction stated in many different ways:

“Like attracts Like”

“Thoughts held in mind produce those in kind”

“Cause and effect”, “What you focus on you attract”

“Whatever you think about either positive or negative, you attract”

“Birds of a feather, flock together”.

In the popular book “The Law of Attraction” by Esther and Jerry Hicks, The Law of Attraction is defined as:

“That which is like unto itself, is drawn”

 

How does it work?

The Law of Attraction responds to the thoughts and feelings that you hold at all times.  They may be thoughts about the past, observations of something in your present or day dreaming or thinking about something in your future.  You could be complaining about what you don’t have or what you don’t want. The thoughts that you are focused in the PRESENT are creating a vibration in you and the Law of Attraction is responding to it.

Now remember, you may not be doing this deliberately or consciously, but only you have the power to attract what comes into your life.  If you are focusing on something, whether positively or negatively, you are attracting it, even if by default.

Here’s an example.  If I ask you not to think about the color of your car, what happens?  You think about the color of your car.  The universe works in the same way.  When you declare:

 

“I don’t want any more illness”

“I don’t want to be tired”

“I don’t want to be so fat”

“I don’t want to meet any more jerks”

 

The universe responds to and provides more:

  • Illness
  • Tiredness
  • Fat
  • More Jerks

 

Now, for the science behind it.  Everything that exists vibrates at some subatomic level and your thoughts and feelings have a vibratory frequency.

The barometer for your vibrations is your emotions and feelings. Whenever you feel and have emotion about something, you create a vibration for it and that vibrational frequency- like a radio transmitter, draws to you those things that vibrate at the same frequency.

If you give your attention to the negative things in your life and focus on what you don’t have, instead of what you want by talking about it and complaining about it, then you feel the feelings of frustration, overwhelm, worry and fear, sadness. You are now vibrating at the level of those feelings and you will attract things that are a match to that vibration….those things that make you feel more frustration, overwhelm, worry, fear, sadness.

The more you are a match to that frequency, the stronger the vibration that you are transmitting and the more you attract at that frequency.

The Bottom line…. you get what you think about and what you feel, whether you want it or not.

How do I use the Law of Attraction to Create my Holiday Season?

Here’s a tool that will assist you in shifting your vibration and attracting what you want for your holiday season and in your life.

Creating Clarity Tool

This tool helps you to get clear on what you desire and begin to focus on it, thereby using the Law of Attraction to attract it to you.  Complete this tool for your Ideal Holiday or Christmas Season, or for any of the individual activities, interactions, parties, spending, etc. related to the season.

  1. You’ll need a blank piece of paper.  Draw a line across the top of the paper about an inch from the top.  From the center of this line, draw a line down the middle to create a large “T”.
  2. At the top write: My Ideal _____ (i.e. My Ideal Christmas, Holiday, Event)
  3. Label the left column “Don’t Want” and the right column “Do Want”

SO WHAT DO I WANT?

  1. In the column on the left, make a list of the things that you don’t like or want to experience this holiday.
  2. Now, read through the list and in the column on the right list the opposite of what you don’t want, listing it in a positive way, stating what you do want- including how you want to feel.

Note:  You can create a separate clarity list for any of the individual activities, interactions, parties, spending, etc. related to the season.

  1. Read this list daily.

Creating with Intent

There is a common misunderstanding as to what Creating with Intent really means. Creating with intent is not the same as creating an intention to be/do/have something. When you use an intention statement, in the form of a positive affirmation, to create an intention you will often see it formed like this…. “I intend to experience prosperity and abundance in my life” or you might see “I intend that my business is flourishing and income is flowing freely”. Another way it is common to use these statements is to say….”It is my intention to let go of fear with ease and grace”. When you use these types of statements you are creating an intention. This puts what it is you desire to manifest into the future. Energetically, it puts your manifestation into some future point of time. These types of statements are not definitive statements. Why would you intend to manifest something? Why not just manifest it?

Creating with intent however is creating with focus, attention as in the word intensity. It is creating with intensity, the intensity of your focus, attention….your energy.  This brings your energy into the present moment. The Law of Attraction responds to your energy, what you are feeling. The stronger the intensity of your desire, the larger the manifestation of that desire.

When you create with intent, you have a vision, you can feel that vision. You focus your energy, your thoughts on how that vision feels. When you hold onto this you can actually feel the energy grow and expand.

All things are created energetically long before they ever manifest.If you want to manifest something do not intend to do so but do so with intent, with the intensity of your energy and let that energy grow and expand.

Heart-Centered Networking ~ Demonstrating the Change

Web Banner - PY!LCJoining in Sacred Activism by Merging your Conscious and Unconscious and Cultivating Global Healing ~ One Soul at a Time.Presented by Malathy Drew

Heart-Centered Networking is about completely transforming the way in which WE have been taught to exist in this world. It is about living your soul’s purpose, doing that which makes your heart sing and making a difference in the world! It is about connecting with other human beings and realizing that when WE come together in a spirit of collaboration and support one another, everyone thrives.

Heart-Centered Networking is about opening to a completely different paradigm than anything that any of us that are alive on this planet have ever experienced before now. It’s like being at the end and the beginning all at the same time. It is a time for extreme Compassion, for self and very importantly for others. It’s a transition time. It’s a birthing and it requires commitment and Action.

In Social Media, depending on where you are in your life’s journey and the ability that you currently have to hold a continually open heart, you can show up in a multitude of ways and levels. You can just watch, you can hit the ‘Like’ button on posts you resonate with or you can hit the ‘Share’ button and pass the information along to your network. If you have the courage to show up and share your experience, then you can start conversations on your page and you can comment on other peoples post in your network. Finally, the final phase is going into the large networks and just shining brightly.

About Malathy Drew:

My name is Malathy and I am the Visionary of Heart-Centered Networking which is a complete shift in paradigm of Networking, Promotion and Marketing. WE utilize the immense Power of Facebook and Twitter infused with the Transformation that is created when You are committed to merging your conscious and unconscious.

Probably like many of you reading this, I have experienced many emotional and personal ups and downs, tragedies and triumphs, as well as successes and failures in my life. It seems that much of my life was spent  living in what I like to call the “Tornado of Destruction”. I traveled through life for many years trapped in my own hell, caught up in my past and scared to death of my future.

I have overcome this fear and have learned that LOVE is truly the answer to all of my questions.

My name literally means ‘the overcoming of suffering’. My life has been a testament to just that process. I bring a lifetime of transcendence to bear in the art of Heart-Centered Networking, the core concept behind Whispering Energy.

During my life’s journey, I have become aware that I have been given a precious gift with my mission of healing. I have realized that it is only by being willing to walk through the depths of our own suffering that each of us can reach glorious and exhilarating heights of joy, bliss and healing beyond our wildest dreams. I look forward to meeting you in Heart-Centered Networking.
