Post 240: The Wow Factor

Wow! I’ve really found myself again.

Transformations and transitions have been powerful.

I looked through some photo albums this early morning and I actually remember joy and happiness and love. I see the person I was and am. I see what a wonderful, nurturing mother I was and am. I see how beautiful I was and am.

I spent so much of my life doubting my exterior and internal beauty.

I’m realizing I am beauty.

I have energy. I’m motivated. I’m excited for life. I’m hopeful.

I recognize my challenges, but carry a hope that all will be okay.

I’m counting my blessings and recognizing what a glorious life I’ve had.

All in all, every wish I’ve had as a child has come true. And every goal I had as a young adult has been met. I know if I died today, I would be content.

I have helped people through my various vocations and writings.

I have reached out.

I have been caring and thoughtful.

I have placed others first, but also learned to pamper and love myself.

It really is quite glorious.

I’m at a time in my life where I am learning to appreciate my uniqueness and also recognize my commonalities with other people.

I am less rigid and structured, more able to relax and understand my thought processes. More able to accept who I am and what I am.

I am even able to look in the mirror and like what I see.

So much growth.

I am very pleased

view from my home in the early mornings

I’ve spent the last two weeks reawakening and cleansing the energy in my house through the practice of feng shui. And I’ve reveled in the process, spending some nine to ten-hours straight some days working on the house. (Can you say “fixation” ?) The inspiration and motivation to clean and organize my home came after more than five weeks of being couch-bound and sick from a series of infections, the longest standing being viral bronchitis.

Symbolically and energetically, while facing physical health challenges, I cleared out much stagnant energy within my body through my constant coughing and removal of chunks of phlegm. (Pardon that visual image.)

Now that my interior being has had a good scrub through, I am setting about to clear out the gunk from the exterior of my life.

Everyday I cleanse my home, I feel lighter and happier in spirit. I have more clarity than I have experienced in years and have been welcoming many gifts through this energetic cleansing process.

I feel reconnected to a part of me I haven’t felt in years. I am reawakened myself in my ability to recognize the effective and beneficial parent and homemaker, friend, and spirit I am.

*as a side note, both days I cleaned my study, the feng shui area for prosperity and money, I was rewarded within hours with unexpected monetary awards.

Expired supplements and medications discarded.

Release of pain and suffering.

Welcoming of health and wealth of energy.

Release of fear of losing past happiness and hope.

Welcoming of present happiness and merriment.

Sorting through photo albums and photos.

Removal of past untruths.

Welcoming the beauty I was and am. Welcoming the wonderful memories of the family I have helped lift and raise.

    1. Thanks so much bulldog. How is life there? I am very, very thankful for our view. It is like an ever changing giant photograph right outside our windows. I love how the water changes hues based on the season and weather. Today a very dimal grey, but just as lovely. Great hearing from you.

  4. Recently I’ve started to veg back into my old interests of Astrology and Crystals. I’ve never looked at Feng Shui but I might just do that.
    I’ve spent so long looking at the traits and characteristics of Autism and other Special Needs but lost the link that some of us are just typical to our star sign. That would be a great post – to look at the similarities!

    1. I thought about your comment a lot yesterday. Yes, indeed, our astrological signs do make a difference in our traits, don’t they. So much is just who we are….only as humans with human brains we seek to catergorize to make some sense and order. Thanks for your comment. Wishing you lots of light and love. ~ Sam

  5. I am trying hard to begin the process of cleansing my life through cleansing my home. I have a new house cleaner and she is very good and has agreed that, each time she comes, we will spend one hour tossing and sorting and other necessary things that I simply have difficulty with.
    I needed this post, Sam. It has helped me mentally prepare.

    1. On the same wavelength again, hey, dear blogging bro??? I do hope you stick to it and clear out the clutter and excess; it certainly lightens your spirit and makes life in general easier. Keep me apost. 🙂 Much love and light to you.

  6. I have just started reading your blog and am so grateful to have found it. My 12 year old daughter has Aspergers and your beautiful description of the traits of girls with aspergers is like a gift to me! It fits so well and has given me an insight and an understanding that I have not found anywhere else. Thank you.

    1. Your words truly bring me comfort and feelings of thankfulness. At times it’s hard to write and share parts of me, but your comment helps me much. Thank you for taking the time to write your thoughts. Much appreciated. Best wishes to you and your daughter. 🙂 Sam

  7. What an amazing post dearest Sam… sorry have not been as diligent on my blog visits… hospital procedure tomorrow…and still in midst of pain and decision making. So glad I stopped to see this though — I need so much to do this cleansing thing too… physically impossible for me to do a lot i the house – but I know how much it frees you up energetically. This was beautiful my sea sister ~ xoRL

    1. Hello lovely sea sis. I certainly miss you. I miss my blogging family, and you especially. How are you? How was your procedure. You are on my mind. Thank you for your kind words. Always a joy to soak in your energy. You could write “poop” and it would likely resonate with the energy of fertilizer and nurturing. 🙂 hehe

      1. Hi there sweet Sam ~just a quick one as have been evacuated due to pending Hurricane (Sandy) …I miss you too sweetie ~ go see me at age 8 on my latest post when you can – you will get a kick~ In the meantime hope you are well… and sending lots of love ! ps: procedure has not given relief yet — but he did confirm my femur pops out of the socket ~ lovely hugh? xxooo

      2. Please keep me updated on the storm and evacuation. I hope you are safe and do not lose power. Sending you light and love. That sounds painful. Take care and speak soon. Hugs and love.

Thank you for your comments :)
