Observations On the Go

I’m celebrating the birth of a new age. December 21, 2012 was the end of a 26,000 year cycle for our planet, give or take a few years. December 22, 2012 was celebrated as the birthday for planet Earth’s new age. People in 150 countries came together on the Internet and in spirit to bring in this new baby. I find that exciting and amazing because the Internet is just over 30 years old and yet itself was birthed in time to assist with the planetary birth.

No matter who we are or where we live, we have to have noticed that things are changing at a rapid pace these days. The planet’s alignment with the center of the Milky Way speaks to another alignment happening in the human consciousness. We cannot separate ourselves from what is happening in the galaxy or on the planet. We are a part of it. Some say we are causing it. Our perceptions are shifting daily and taking us to a new place in human history.

I choose to think the shift is for the better. If we all start thinking about how we can cooperate with each other, that one shift in consciousness will radically change our planet. For me, I’ve started looking at all problems and challenges as needing a win-win-win solution. We can create solutions that are good for you, good for me, and good for the planet all at the same time.

Over the past few decades, we have witness some pretty amazing horrors and yet we have to see these events as part of the birth process. Speaking as one who’s given birth, it hurts like hell and sometimes there are numerous complications. On the other side though, you get to see the child you’ve been carrying and all memory of the pain leaves you. All you see is the beautiful miracle of life in your arms. So I’m giving a huge, warm hug to the Earth. I love you, all of you. Regardless what some people may think or say, good always wins! Stick around long enough and you just might get to be a witness.

Light and Love,
Janice

Building A Dream

Celebrate that we can imagine great things and work to manifest these ideas. Great opportunities are on the horizon for CHANGA. We will have good things to report very soon. As we stay the course, what’s needed is daily focus and action to pluck the dream out of thin air. We can visualize the housing and happy deaf and hard of hearing people living there and enjoying the benefit of our efforts.

Building the dream takes discipline to stay the course with daily action when there may not be any signs of success. When we have a big dream, we don’t work for immediate gratification. That will only derail the effort.

Daily action is that pesky stuff like research, writing out a plan, making the phone calls, asking for help, learning something new, enduring the unthinkable because you believe and know that you will cross the finish line.

The daily action of building a dream can be celebrated. Rejoice in the seemingly mundane tasks because it means you’ve started on the path toward your big idea and amazingly energy rushes in to meet you. Resources come forth out of the blue. Someone calls with an introduction to a friend who can help. You pick up the phone, make that call and discover that people were waiting on your arrival.

Your daily action may feel as though you’ve become a turtle in the great race of life. Just remember, even the snail made it onto the Arc.

Light and Love,
Janice

How I’m letting go and celebrating the release …

Look around and you will likely discover that you have some true treasures in your life. Sometimes we are very present and expressing appreciation and love for these gifts. At other times, we take them for granted only to discover their true value when they leave us.

Sometimes these treasures are the people in our lives. They bring joy and love, a sense of security and friendship. Then one day they announce that it’s time to move on and you don’t get a vote in that decision. It can really hurt and be tremendously sad. You think about all the time you’ve had together but mostly the time you will miss together. Yet a part of you has to celebrate the change when it’s truly a calling to move on in life toward more growth. When you truly love someone, you want to see them grow. It doesn’t seem fair when it means you have to separate. One of love’s lessons is the letting go part.

I’m seeing a new friend move on and it’s sad but at the same time I will celebrate with him for the joy of the unknown and his own growth. I’ve learned that fighting the change just makes it more painful. And thank God for cell phones and facebook. It doesn’t have to be years before we see each other and speak again.

Light and Love.

Celebration

It seems that everybody is celebrating something this month.  We are coming to the end of the year, and the end of an era.  We seem to be getting ready for a new birth.  CHANGA is also experiencing a newbirth and a celebration.  The celebration of a newborn brings with it hope and new light.  CHANGA is being reborn this season with hope of a new project that will move forward the dream of deaf-friendly housing.

Across the country we are hearing rumors of people talking about the subject now.  There is a growing awareness of the need.  As we move toward the end of the year, we are accelerating into that new hope and exploring opportunities to provide housing.  I was told last week, if you build it, they will come.  I then saw evidence of that when I stumbled upon a property that had lost it’s way and had been a beacon for the deaf.  Hopefully we can make it shine once again and provide a great new community for the deaf and hard of hearing.

We celebrate the hope of this newbirth and speed our way to that destiny.  It almost feels like Luke, Leah and Han in Episode IV – The New Hope.  For those of you who might be living in the pliestocene period, I’m referring to Star Wars. 😉

Light and Love.
