Slightly-Brit and Manchild (my daughter and son) are exchanging closet organizing systems. Actually, Manchild isn't even involved, except for having to get his stuff out of his closet so Slightly-Brit and I can mess with it (and, of course, we DID ask him if he was ok with this).
We found FIVE of those lava humidity-soaker-uppers in the bottom of Manchild's closet - put there one at a time (and forgotten instantly) by his strange mama (that would be me).
Manchild's current bedroom used to be mine - we switched rooms awhile ago - and it seems I never did get all my stuff out of the back of the closet.
But what I wanted to say to you today is: I wanted to tell you that I'm feeling awful about not getting much done at Square-Peg-People lately. There's a lot of behind the scenes stuff happening, but you can't SEE that.
There's a whole change in tone, a huge shift wherein we will be making the invisible visible: the spiritual (I did NOT say religious) foundation will be obvious, the energy will be focused in a "cleaner" way - toward the positive, away from any victim thinking. Blah blah.
Lots going on there, but again - you can't see it - and really, sometimes I can't either. Sometimes lately I've felt like I'm in the soup - everything muddied - neck deep in chaos. And I DO believe the beauty and order are in the works, it'll shine soon (but "soon" - as I mentioned to my sis just this morning, is a relative word).
And none of that is what I wanted to say either, but it's backstory.
The story is - here I am, mucking around in closets, decluttering, wondering about the future of my business, about as confused as I can be - and I found out that The Beloved (The Universe, God, The Source*) - is handling my marketing.
I got a newsletter yesterday from Eliana Gilad and followed a link to where she talked about her amazing book, "Quiet in the Eye of the Storm". I talked about the book in an earlier post. I've talked about it to a lot of people. I LOVE this book. As I read down the page I saw ME - Eliana had included some of my words of praise about her book, a picture of me, and a link to Square-Peg-People.com!
So, even when I'm not doing the visible work I want to be doing - my name, the business name, is getting "out there" - and, in this case, in connection with an absolutely amazing person and her incredible work. It's wild what happens when you're right where you're supposed to be - which, for me, is on my hiney in the middle of the river of grace.
That's my story today - that I found, even in the confusion and turmoil, when my eyes and heart are aimed right at Love - when I put myself right where my heart leads me (EVEN if I'm confused) everything is working for me! I'm connected!!
Now - let me tell you a little about Eliana. She runs a healing music center in Israel - and says: "I am passionate about how the ancients used voice and music...especially the music therapy of the biblical prophetess Miriam. This is my passion and life's commitment to revive it for modern times."
Her book, "Quiet in the Eye of the Storm", teaches (using story - real-life stories) 5 tools of peaceful living - and now has music to accompany it. It's a short book, goes straight to your heart and changes your life! Of all the books I've reviewed and/or recommended over the years, this is #1. Bless yourself, check it out here.
*I don't know alot, but I know this: Just like you can call me Karen, Toots, Flighty (was actually my nickname as an undergrad), Hey YOU, Sweetie, Bitch, or anything else - and if you are looking me in the eye (and particularly if you are looking with love in YOUR eyes, but really - any kind of connection look - even anger) - I will know you are talking to me -------- same thing goes with The Beloved. And it's not my job to tell you what name to use - what connecting look to use - figuring that out is your job. Might even be your life's work.
