Merry Christmas 🎄!

We decided as a family a few weeks ago we were going to put Christmas up early!

It’s been interesting how many people I’ve read and heard are doing the same thing!

These are our reasons and how we are going to make sure Thanksgiving is still part of it and not crowded out:

We are going to create a gratitude jar that these little wooden hearts I have will have a gratitude written on them each day through Thanksgiving and even after….

Why we did it?

We wanted to have that very visual reminder that Christ is the reason for hope….for everything!

This year hasn’t been an easy one for anyone….and it’s naive for us to think it’s all just going to go away…..

There are days the heaviness of how divided we are as the body of Christ is very heartbreaking….and we as a family wanted to be reminded of how we are fighting the good fight….that His path is narrow and frustrating at times……but it is the path to true freedom….

Soooo we are celebrating the hope Christ represents….and how his coming years ago was for our salvation….

And His future coming is for our purification….atleast that’s how I see it…lol….

Anyways…..

Are you planning to put your Christmas tree and decorations up early?


Have you?!

And what is your reason why you have or haven’t?!

Many blessings and prayers always,

Kelly 😘

Does living in His Will always mean we enjoy it?

I have pondered this quote many times in my life….

And I think the emotions and the state of the world is a perfect example to understand this quote to its fullness…..

When we are living in Gods will….when our energy and frequency is in alignment with Him…..

When we are aligning our health, our life, to live the best version of ourself, we are thriving on this journey…..

But it doesn’t mean we always enjoy the path that it takes us on….

We are able to experience the full healing health that the frequency of peace and joy and enlightenment resonates through our body….it surpasses any other type of emotion…

Do I enjoy that I am asked to put a mask on in different places…no…

Do I enjoy that the people of God are divided on so many things right now….no….

Do I enjoy it when I have symptoms due to autoimmunity issues flare up…..no…..

But…I trust that if God has permitted something it is for my greater good…

What part do I need to take action to better support my body?

What action do I need to take to better love others around me?

What action do I need to take to be the change this world so desperately needs?

Now isn’t that a better way to look at the full beauty of this quote?

Have a glorious week!

Hugs and blessings always,

Kelly

TRUE CHANGE: Reformation from within!

I have loosely followed the drama of the news for about 10 years now.  I use to let the news consume me.  I would either let it spin in my head or there would be things I just didn’t understand and I hated not understanding so that would spin as well.

I made a deal with God 10 years ago…..I would stop obsessing over the news and I would trust He would ensure I would be informed on news that I really needed to be aware of.  Now you might ask if I am intentionally not reading or watching the news how am I going to know something?  Well, He would have specific friends or family members that know me well share things with me.  Things that I would resonate with.  News I would understand and not obsess over.

The last 6 months though….ugh.  I have still intentionally not watched or read anything BUT the downloads of information that have been thrown my way by God through friends and family has been well… let’s say more than I could possibly want to consume but I know I need to continue to be in the loop in order to truly discern and pray for all that is going on.

This has had me reflecting on censorship.  Part of why I walked away from the news years ago was not just because it wasn’t serving my mental health or my soul,  it was also because I KNEW I wasn’t really getting the whole story.  We may be a country that is supposed to be about not censoring yet it happens…..and it is happening by the ocean full right now.

We have organizations and groups of people pulling down statues and re-writing history books.  They don’t like that the people being honored to have lived a full picture story ie-meaning they were human they did some really good things but they also lived in times when not so great things took place.

Now I know you’re going to say, Kelly, you’re oversimplifying it….and I challenge you to think….no we as a people are overcomplicating it.  I think when we as a people start overthinking things, start trying to get into the weeds of things then that’s when we forget to be childlike in our love and compassion.

Yes, there are historical figures who were this or that…..but they did good things too…..heck lets take a look at some of the key biblical characters (outside of Jesus) they weren’t perfect…..they did good and bad things!  Hello: Abraham…Moses….David….Peter!!!

St. Francis is one I love to look at as a great example of this conundrum….he knew he wasn’t perfect….he knew there were issues in the church…..yet he didn’t stick his head in the sand nor did he try to banish the Church and erase it’s history or even run from it…..  He stuck around to make a difference.

And that is what we should each strive to do.  Whether it is in our everyday life as a citizen or even the life of our health.

I think about how even though I may have had moments in my life where I really didn’t like the skin I was in I never gave up on it or tried to permanently alter it.  I dug in deep to address my mental health, my emotional health, my spiritual health so I could truly address my physical health.

I think we could all take a page from Saint Francis’s life right now….maybe if we were all willing to dig in and address the true internal issues….not complicate things….and not run away or ignore the issues….and keep things simple and pure then maybe just maybe we can heal the hate in this world….and HEAL THE HATE WE DIRECT TO OUR OWN SELF.

Because this is the BIGGEST AHA I hope you will grasp…..when we are able to finally TRULY LOVE OURSELF that is when we will change the world….because you can’t give love, true love… if you don’t already love yourself!

Many hugs, prayers, and blessings as always,

Kelly 🙂

LABOR PAINS

Women who have given birth understand the real range of pain their body and even their emotions and mind go through during those last moments before they deliver their beautiful baby after 9 months of carrying them, loving them, nurturing them, and protecting them.

I did carry my beautiful baby girl but I actually never felt the labor pains because I had to have a c-section…..BUT my “labor pains” were presented in other ways….

Why am I talking about labor pains?  I have been reflecting on this ALOT recently because of the last 9 months.  Depending on where you live will depend on if you have truly been dealing with all this upheaval for a full 9 months, more than 9 months, or the shorter end of about 7 months…..either way it has been WAAAY too long!

And the true labor pain is around the corner in a little over 30 days.

I think anyone who doesn’t see how the election is connected to how COVID is tearing apart our families, our communities, our health, our faith…..well is naive or truly doesn’t want to see what is going on.

I know I haven’t been on here much this year…..as I stated in a previous posting,  SILENCE ON SUNDAY, I felt there was really nothing new I could add to the chatter and all those who are out there sharing all their opinions and thoughts.   But I realized I was wrong…..I can add something…..we all have someone we resonate with.  Information that resonates with us.  And if my perspective and my sharing my journey through all this insanity can help even one person then I realized I need to quit not showing up here.  Because believe me I have sooo much to share.  I have gone through more emotions than I can possibly list.

And as one of my favorite bloggers, BEAUTY BEYOND BONES, has said in her posts often it is……I too am not one of those bloggers who write a whole bunch of stuff ahead of time and schedules it out…..I write at the moment just like she does.  It might not be the most efficient way to have a blog but just like her, I write what is going on emotionally in the moment and how can you pre-write that…..you can’t……and if I am going to share with all of you my heart well it needs to be in the moment!

The funny thing is I have “written” a blog post for you all almost every day of the week in my head this year…..especially the last 7 months.   But I just haven’t’ put it down on paper.  Why?  Again I thought “they are already hearing this”, “who wants to hear one more thing about what is going on”, and “I don’t want to write about the facts or data or yuck of it”……why I thought I had to share other than how I have always shared here, I have no idea!  But no more….cause I have so much to share and I am committing to showing up at least once a week again.

Back to labor pains….another blogger I follow MARK MALLET has been writing some amazing posts about what is really going on with all this….the spiritual connection to everything…..and one of his amazing posts was actually called THE LABOR PAINS

I recently had a friend I hadn’t seen for months reach out to me after Mass and ask me if I was a hugger..lol…oh am I a hugger!  I hugged her with the intensity as if my life depended on it.  And I lost it. Meaning I started to cry…a cleansing freeing cry!   She had nooo idea all I had been experiencing the last 7 plus months…..and she was so sweet trying to ask me if I was okay.

Which is really a double edge question I think for all of us.  Are we really okay?  

The first big issue I have with everything going on is how we have been told to not touch others….to not get near each other…..blah blah blah….it has fed fear and it has increased mental health issues over the last 9 months.

TOUCH….we were made for TOUCH, FOR COMMUNITY….it is healing….touch brings down our fight or flight physically, mentally, emotionally…..touch is even so important for our soul!

I am tired of going for a walk and seeing people take a wide way around me….and even wearing masks OUTSIDE!!!!

I am tired of the hate….the shaming….the bullying….

I am tired of hearing from some that after the election all will go back to “normal”….

I am not a “Debbie downer”…..but I am also not a “PollyAnne”……

I have “seen” and felt the true battle that is going on since February…..and it has been a deep hurt within my heart and soul knowing that others don’t see it…..and even worse look at me like I am “crazy”…..

So what gets me through all this?  MY FAITH!!!  My relationship with GOD!  And knowing that I have a choice:  I can choose to give in to despair even pretend it is all okay…… OR I can face it head-on…..recognize and acknowledge even the darkest feelings of this time and see GODS love…..FEEL THE HOPE….turn to GRATITUDE and KNOW God never permits something if it won’t benefit us!

As you enter into your new week….how are you counting your blessings, counting your gratitudes?  How have you been holding up during 2020? 

Many hugs, prayers, and blessings as always,

Kelly 😉

Are we having a Galileo Moment?

A dear friend of mine and I have for years reflected on how there are often times in the Church the problem of the “baby is being thrown out with the bath water”.

Many years ago I was introduced to MRT (Muscle Response Testing) or Muscle Testing for short. I was also introduced to EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) or Tapping for short.

At the same time God was having me study and dissect things like: yoga, shamanism, pendulums, crystals, essential oils, and more.

I have wrestled with Him many times on each of these topics and have even blogged here on several of them…..

But not on some of them… due to “fear” of how it would come across.

Fear that I would be accused of being pulled into the “new age” movement.

Fear that I would lead anyone astray.

Fear that I would be rejected.

But something that has become super clear to me during the course of the last few months with ALL that has been going on with the world in the balance of good and evil…..if you don’t believe that what is going on is spritual warfare I challenge you to truly take it to prayer….

Anyways…..what I have realized is that I MUST not be afraid to speak about some of these topics that Catholics, Christians may shy away from or even reject all together.

First, let’s remember that GOD CREATED EVERYTHING.….so just because something is being used by non-christian groups or even worse by groups that are truly in alignment with the enemy DOESN’T MEAN THAT THAT CREATION IS BAD!

I think a really good example we can all relate to is a GUN!

A gun in and of itself is not evil…it is not good or bad….it is an object. How the person holding the gun…..what their intent is….that is what is dertermined if it is used for good or evil.

So with that vein of thought…..an example of a tool that has been hijacked by the enemy is a pendulum. Galileo actually created the first pendulum. And there are lots of different types but the bottom line it is about measuring energy. And that’s physics.

But what happens when we as Christian’s hear about pendulums we automatically think of divination, witches, fortune telling…..heck I think of a 90’s show where I saw it being used over a map often times.

BUT….we must go back to understanding WHAT IS THE INTENT of it’s use. When we are grounded in Christ. When we are understanding muscle testing, we are able to understand that it is just another way of muscle testing without having to use so much energy while muscle testing. It also can be a more accurate way of muscle testing.

Crystals are a huge issue for so many people….but something that this beautiful faithful friend reminded me about was WE NEED A CRYSTAL TO LIVE…..SALT!

And it goes back to when we focus on the creation of crystals and not the creator then yes there is a problem. But when we go back to the days of creation…..it says that ALL creation is for our wellbeing. So why wouldn’t the stones and earth be included in that?

St. Hildegard writes extensively about the plants, animals, and STONES for our health. And this is the thing….one of the most conservative popes we have, Pope Benedict XVI, canonized her a saint AND made her a doctor of the church.

Now when we start talking about yoga…..as I have written many times on this subject…..something new I want to share is how do we not know that God had not originally shared this form of movement and worship to a Christian but they dismissed it….

Remember God doesn’t enforce anything on us…..He grants us the gift of free will…..thus we are given the opportunity always to use the gifts and talents He equips us with or to hide them or even dismiss them….

Something God has really been having me dig deeper into the last couple years but especially the last 6 months is understanding the definition of shamanism…..and is it even conscievable for a Christian to practice shamanism?

If you would have asked me this 4 or more years ago….I would have said absolutely not…..but just as He had me really dissect yoga….He has been having me dissect what it means to be a shaman.

But first let’s look at some of the gifts of the Holy Spirit….particularly Charisms: prophecy and healing to mercyteaching, almsgiving, perseverance, joy, encouragement, hospitality and  leadership.  St. Paul lists nine examples of the Spirit’s manifestations in 1 Cor 12:4-11.

There are many different cultures who have different definitions of what a shaman is……the most simplistic that they all have in common is “healer”……now how some of them go about it is NOT of God in my opinion. They are “channeling” into forces they have no business entering into….opening doors and issues that could be more harm than good.

BUT……when we are always seeking GOD’S WILL FIRST….and if HE leads us to help someone in a particular healing way…..then how can we say no?

Throughout all of time there have been people who are considered seers, shaman, mystics, etc…..and each of these can be looked up on bad or good…..it truly go’s back to the root of INTENT!

A wise spiritual director once shared with me about how to help my daughter with her particular gifts and talents, her charism. He said with her gift comes great responsibility. As she learns more about it, and acknowledges it she will have a choice in using it for good or for her selfish desires or even worse for the enemy. So continually leaning on God and asking HIM to guide her with her gift of when to use it or not to use it is imperative.

Which brings me to the next important lesson God poured into me years ago….that I try to adhere to each and every day of my life…..which is……just because something is permissible doesn’t mean we should.

There were even some amazing saints who got caught up in their own gifts and would pridefully seek answers or allow their will to be the lead rather than God’s will.

So our challenge….with each gift….each talent…..each charism…..is to seek being that BRIDGE FOR GOD to help others heal. And to not easily dismiss what might be being used in the “new age” world as all evil. Maybe it just hasn’t been used in glory of GOD before. And isn’t it time we took back GOD’S CREATIONS and CHARISMS to be that vessel for HIM?

I would love to hear your thoughts and reflections!

I don’t ever claim to be an expert or even right on any of this…..this is my journey…..and my journey with God is going to look different than yours!

What I do hope is that you open your heart to hear what HE is saying to you and always “gather” with atleast one other person as you discern…..because that is when revelations take place….it also means darkness or clouding of a message can’t reside.

Have an amazing week full of blessings…full of health….full of hope….full of healing!

hugs and prayers always,

Kelly 😉
