A Survivor Story

This survivor story is laid out in an “S” story, perhaps you will see some similarities in your story??

It began by a journey back to Ontario from Vancouver to say our last goodbye’s to my, then partners, father who was dying.

As I shared in my last in my last post, On our way to his parents house he snapped and surprised the shit out of me, by strangling me in the taxi.

He was sent to the hospital and diagnosed with schizophrenia and released to go back to B.C. a few days later…which left me to live in this S story;

An 'S' Story

In the Spring of 2013 I was in shock, scared, scarred, separated, stranded in a sense, with only a suitcase, dealing with sadness, stress, shame, strife, struggle, social services, suffering, surrendering, support, shy, sisterhood, shifts, striving, sorrow, set-backs, selfish, stopped and went Silent on Social Media.

I began Al-anon a 12 Step program, slogans, sponsor, step-work, service, which gave me the strength  to become strong, connected back to Spirit, Sharing, Sacred Spaces, Starting from Scratch, Stillness, Symbols, Study, student again, strength, Signs, Synchronicity, spontaneity, Soul Sisters, stories, Self-Love, Starseeds, Sensitivity, Stubborn, Silly, Secrets, Stagnation, searching, safe, secure, single, Smiles, Stretching, Savasana, Singing, settle down, Storytelling, Signals, sorry, sick, satisfied, sympathetic, shadows, structure, steadfastness, Shining, Source, Spirituality, Self-Suffccient, Success, Sensual, Simplify.

In the Summer of 2015, one Sunday on a sweltering night, I made a salad and an alfalfa Sprout slide half way down my throat.  Stupid me, I drank some water to wash it down and it lodged deeper so I couldn’t swallow. Thankfully, I had a friend over, who literally Saved my life, with the heimlich maneuver.

Then I was Shaken, stalled for days, sleeping a lot, shed some more skins, to stand before you as a Survivor.

The Storms of my life brought me on a downward spiral and then back up, delivering me home to my True Self.

The “S” story has ended with me living by Swans in 2017 and getting my Sparkle Back.

I have been blessed to learn more about the symbol and message of Swans as a totem. I even started a playlist on youtube of the Swan Story

The Swans had babies and I can totally relate to the ugly duckling story and the transformation of Surrendering and Trust to have Beauty and Grace fill my life.

I am finally Ready to Speak again, through this blog, share my Passion and purpose for Being in this world 🙂

Namaste,

The Cosmos are Calling and the  journey of the incredible story of Cosmic Breath has Compelled me to Call out to our human family yet another Sept. with a serious invitation to join this great spiritual quest, to finish 2012 Strong!

A message of Potency and Power that occurred after the Blue Moon, the second Full Moon in Aug. It had such break-though energy and showed up with a totem the next day…The first video is the 29 geese and the second video is my husband reading the meaning of Goose…Keynote message is: Heed the Call of the Quest.

These two videos have begun the Call for you to join us in a magical lifestyle and for us all to join together to Finish 2012 Strong.

Now for the printed version of what my husband just read from Ted Andrews~ Animal Wise Tarot book.

Goose” ~ Heed the Call of the Quest.

Geese are migratory birds. Their leaving in the  autumn stirs the imagination and inspires us to seek out new worlds and dimensions. Their honking is an invitation to follow them on the great spiritual quest, a journey that hints of fulfilled promises and dreams which only great quests can bring.

The sacred quest is a journey to find our spiritual essence and how best to express it within our lives. All quests bring transformation,enabling us to break free of restraints and to come into our own power. When Goose appears,we can expect to have our imaginations stirred toward new ideas, new travels, new dimensions-whether of the body or of the mind.

All geese have very keen vision. When Goose appears, our own vision will improve, our physical vision as well as our spiritual vision. We will begin to see what possibilities lie ahead of us. To grasp those possibilities, we must loosen our grip upon things of the past, leaving them behind. Whatever is lost or left behind will be found again later, for whoever goes upon a quest will succeed.

When Goose migrates into our life, we are being invited to experience new wonders and new possibilities. The opportunity for great adventure and fertility should be acted upon.

The goose epitomizes the mystery of migration. They constantly shift patterns, creating drafts and easier flights for those behind them, reminding us that those who embark upon quests make it easier for others to do so…..that last line is the one that touched my husbands heart…

Much more to come on the Cosmic Breath and the Sept Equinox..for the magic, it has never been more important to live it than now….

This blog was first set up as my journal with teachings from my native elder Dave Courchene. I have not seen him since I began this blog in 2008 but his teachings and my actions are still in sync. After I did the radio show on a love connection with Mother Earth…an article came out about Dave being in Ottawa…it reads:

The Spiritual Backstory of the Crown-First Nations Gathering

By ICTMN Staff February 20, 2012

Anishnabe Elder Dave Courchene, winner of the 2012 National Aboriginal Achievement Award for spirituality and the founder of Turtle Lodge, a center for learning that envisions all the races coming together in the lighting of the eighth fire foretold by the elders.

“It is said by our elders—the wisdom keepers and the visionaries of our people—that we have entered a very special time. And it is a time of great opportunity. It is a time that we are witnessing changes happening around the world,” Courchene said in his speech and prayer explaining the spiritual nature of the gathering and its relevance to the material world.


“Our people foresaw all of these things,” he said. “We consider today very historical to be able to come together and to reflect on the original instructions that we were all given as human beings. And that was to bring peace and love into this world.”

The sentiment was acknowledged privately, before the opening ceremony, when Prime Minister Stephen Harper presented the three elders—Courchene, Bertha Commanda and Barney Williams Jr.—with tobacco. Then on behalf of the three elders, Courchene presented him with a scroll, while Barney presented one to Assembly of First Nations National Chief Shawn A-in-chut Atleo. The scroll highlights Ogitchi Tibakonigaywin—the Great Binding Law of the Kizhay Manito (the Creator) and the Seven Teachings.

I Love The last paragraph…

“I call upon the drum to call us to order,” Courchene said, explaining to the various cultures assembled that the drum represents the heartbeat.


“I call upon the drum to carry these words that the elders continue to speak about, that we will find that courage to be able to do the right thing,” he said. “There are many many ways to do the wrong things. But there’s only one way to do the right thing. And it’s written in our hearts. All we need to do is find the courage to listen to the voice of the heart that speaks to all of us. Because we are all within the human family.”

Later, in his speech and opening prayer, Courchene emphasized the importance of putting children and mothers back into the center of our lives, calling on participants to remember the “original instructions” that all were given by the Higher Power to bring peace and love into the world. He emphasized everyone’s connection to Mother Earth.

In numerology, 11 is considered a Master Number and is said to hold an angelic vibration that makes wishes and dreams manifest more easily.

11 is also believed to be the number of Spiritual Awakenings and signifies the rising of consciousness.

The Oneness and Cosmic connection was created on today’s radio show, Tune in and feel the Love as it is present now and in the days to come.

The Energy was so High it cut off the broadcast for a few minutes.

 

I invite you too, to experience the warmth, and Love, bath over You.

On the 11th day of the 11th month of the 11 year, this energy is amplified, making this date highly magical and auspicious for all of us.

Cosmic Breath I invite you to try it anytime to fill you with Radiance, Vitality and Joy +++ you’ll hear more benefits on the episode.

We gave and received  our Love energy to 7 planets  and the sun because of time  restrictions. This show  is a good launching place to start  you off and then you can add more of the Cosmos on your own.

We are all being called to get creative and think bigger. We are all being called to learn how to play again and to relax into the joy and temporariness of life.

Life is really a game, yet sometimes we get so caught up in the drama and seriousness that we forget to play!

I invite you to Play in the unfolding creation of the Cosmos and call upon them to be your Allies.

In Love and Joy

Today I awoke to a beautiful sunny day with snow on the mountains and I dropped into a contemplation….

That snow at the top of the Mountains will become our drinking water. Then it hit me..the association to  a mountain as Mother Earth’s breast and the snow being referred to as Mothers Milk.

I deeply feel the connection, Yes the sacred connection, that we are all being taken care of, every human, plant, animal..etc The element of  water  is abundant and the Mountains play a big part in keeping it this way. Today I will not take my life or the blessings in it for granted.

Its Magical… My deepest desire for this world is in the name and tag of this blog…. Sacred Connections, Connecting back to Mother Earth and the simple gift of today’s insight fills me with joyful hope.

Together anything is Possible….do you Believe?????

I live in North Vancouver and for months before the Winter Olympics came the motto was everywhere…..Do you Believe?…and the outcome….YES!! We believe!!

A shift happened during the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics, not just for Canadians and the Athletes… but upon our Mother Earth itself.

The Winter Olympics 2010 in Vancouver has just ended and we are now gearing up for the Paralympic’s which begin March 12.

There is so much to reflect upon, the pride for Canadians becoming United through our national sport of hockey. Gaining a hero, and the world record in the most gold medals. As Canadians we were happy with the first gold ever to be won on home soil, however with the last gold we became united as a whole. Oh Canada, our home and native land, had meaning for every color and creed of humanity, even if they were not born here. We  broke through limiting boundaries & borders in our minds and hearts on Sunday Feb, 28th.

From my own experience living in North Van. The party on Sunday turned to the streets it was like being in a parade..we drove around waving our huge flag out the window, honking the horn, waving, celebrating with the many cars on the road and with all the people on the side walks. Every Canadian  had glowing hearts for our home land in the true North Strong and Free. The young carrying hockey sticks, waving exuberantly as we drove by. Many people jumping up and down,The elderly with their pointer fingers in the air,  representing we are Number ONE. It didn’t matter what colour anyone was, we were one energy cheering, smiling from ear to ear, wooooohooooooing, and crying tears of joy. I have never experienced anything so incredibly connecting, spine-tingling, and euphoric. It was the ultimate high, a nation believing, Willing a final game win and achieving an unexpected outcome a, world record.  Our desire for a goal in hockey to win the game, meant more than setting a new world record of the most gold medals in the history of the Olympics, that was just icing on the cake. Canada is Golden.

Together anything is Possible

Symbolically, on the world stage the goal for many Canadians living in the Province of B.C.  focuses on the inner gold of peace. The vibration of this land has been raised over a long period of time, with all the ceremonies done by First Nations peoples combined with all the spiritual communities. Just look at who this land attracted, The Dali Lama, he set up a peace center in Vancouver.

Wake up call

So many people, including myself have been telling the world ” a shift is coming,” well I see the shift just happened last week. Mother Earth herself is trying to get our attention and she has begun this year ,2010 with more intensity of  using the elements to Wake us up. While the Olympic Flame was burning brightly and the vibration was being raised even more with all the celebrations with so many people around the world gathered in one place. Other places  of the world where being thrown in chaos with the elements of Earth, Wind and Water. I interpret these “Wake up calls” as a choice we have to change/shift our focus away from what we devalue. Using the Winter Olympics as a guiding experience of what we do value. Its not chase for the outer gold that brings true happiness, it is coming back to reaching for the inner gold. The treasure inside is  what helps us  go for our Dreams and use our talents to bring joy to the world, as the Athletes just displayed.

Yes, we have heard this before…but maybe it will really sink in this time and we will not go back to sleep. We have before us two ancient ways of living in this world, we can continue to support destruction and war or  finally filter more into supporting the youth, the games and what they stand for symbolically. We can leave a legacy of a healthy earth for future generations, we are on the threshold, the choice is ours.

Time for Peace

Perhaps if we look at Canada a young child, as William Shatner said in the closing ceremony its “the final frontier.” And this Frontier of Canada welcomes all our brothers and sisters as belonging to one home Earth, just as a young child will play with other children easily and without discriminating. What does Canada symbolize as a nation? Peace. What do the Olympic games symbolize? Peace, humanity, unity. What is the average age of the Olympians?  The youth. What do the youth want and have always wanted? Peace

Maybe instead of saying, “Love not War” or Peace instead of war.”  We could ask ourselves this question ” What do I choose, Play or War”

In fact, Sport is comparable to war, but without the killing. The same amount of tears flow, but as we just witnessed with the Olympics they are tears of joy and pride, not of heartache and injustice.

What do you choose, Play or War?
