Mind over Mattress

 Today I was reminded that Mercury is retrograde starting tomorrow, as my car seems to be giving trouble to name just a few of the things that have been a challenge today. During a mercury retrograde, it is the perfect time to do a life review, and that is exactly what the doctor has ordered for me (well, me being the doctor too).

So, anyway, I did decide to get up and feeling a bit like ziggy these days, when I am usually such a positive and optimistic person, I thought it was best to do something and just laugh for bit. I did watch the Winnipeg Comedy Festival and a old Bill Cosby special on PBS
that made me laugh ... It does help.

I have been watching more TV over the past few months that is my normal as sometimes it is just noise when I have lie down anyway because my shoulder is so sore and one of the things I have really noticed is the amount of advertising and commercialization for beloved holidays. The US Thanksgiving commercials seem to be about nothing but shopping and buying gifts - like they want us to buy into buying gifts for everyone from the postman to the guy who lives 5 blocks away and smiled at you once. And then, I see that people who can't afford to spend money on a lot of gifts are already stressed out about Christmas and how they are going to make ends meet. Personally, a smile means more than a gift card...not that I am not happy to receive. I just think we need to really evaluate what we spend our time doing and spending our money on. I am planning to give my upcoming book to my family and a few friends that I buy for. As always I give away some certificates for free healing sessions and readings too, and also some handmade items. The things that I have from my crossed over grandmother that I have always kept are some tree decorations that she made - they really mean a lot to me and. From my father, I don't remember all the gifts he gave me, it is the love that I remember the most. So, I am thinking it is far more important to make time for each other and love each other than it is to give them things... That is what people will remember when I gone... Let us relax and enjoy, have some laughs, sing some songs, play some games... that is my wish for a merry christmas season. 

 As I do my review, I am finding that I have had to surrender certain parts of life. Since I currently have no regular income and can't currently work at a regular job, I am living off what I make doing readings. I have not been busy enough to completely support myself so some things have to be let go that I would choose not to. I have decided that there is nothing I can currently do to change things and I will just keep the faith that it is all as it should be. If my work is important enough and part of my divine plan...then I will trust that everything will be fine and work out. I do practice what I preach and have been asking for help and intervention. I have received some wonderful emails from amazing people offering me love and support and few have pre-ordered my book or let me know they will be on pay day. This means a lot to me, especially right now as I am looking at what is working and what isn't.  So, thank you for love and support it means a lot to me. 

I have been trying new things and to do things differently. I have been asking myself if perhaps there isn't something I can be doing better or in a better way. At times I am finding that some of the things that have been coming my way are not part of who I am as living my authentic self and that there is an energy wanting to pull me into ways that go against my grain. I do believe we should go beyond our comfort zone in order to grow, but lately it almost feels like Darth Vader is calling me to the dark side. I don't mean I am tempted to do things that are sinister or illegal, but they do go against my personal code of what I deem acceptable. So that is the conundrum... do I sell out my beliefs in order to make enough money to get buy, or just have faith it will work out and that I am doing exactly what I need to do right now?????

Today's angel message really spoke to I thought I would share it here too...

this is today's message from the angels....

Making changes isn't always easy

Change often takes strength and courage. Try new experiences and adventures as they help you grow and learn. This brings you closer to your Divine life purpose and is why you leave home and choose a finite experience. Call upon us to lean on and light your way as this is how we work on our Divine purpose, learn and grow.

Trust that your desired outcome will occur very soon. Have patience and don't try to force things to happen or give up when they are just around the next corner. Keep surrendering and releasing any worries or fears to us. The more that you can stay centered, the more easily we can communicate and show you the signs that light your way.

Trust that when you invoke your angels to work on your behalf, we are working non-stop behind the scenes to help you. You are loved, safe, and protected always.

Affirmation: "I am open to explore new ways of seeing and being in the world as I creating that which I desire."

You are dearly loved and supported, always, the angels

Thank you, Mahalo, Merci, Gracias, Vielen Dank, Grazie, Спасибо, Obrigado, 谢谢, Dank, 謝謝, Chokran,Děkuji

Sharon's Take ~ November 2011 Finding Balance

Already it is November and our first snow fall of the season is happening as we share. I am not particularly fond of driving in the snow, however I do enjoy the pristine beauty of newly fallen snow. The fresh smell, the stark whiteness intermingled with evergreens and the smell of chimney smoke in the background. These are more memories of childhood than like I experienced in the city, and so now when they happen it is like bringing out an old friend to play, or perhaps bringing out my inner child. I always loved snow as a child and spent many hours 'stranded up in the north' digging out forts in the snowbanks, sliding down the ravine, and skating like I was trying out for the Olympics were wonderful ways to pass the time. I think I am guided to share these memories as it is important to remember the wonderful times and bring that energy in the now and it is also very important to find time to go out and play as you did as child. It helps to cleanse our energy fields, release and rejuvenate. Make some plans to enjoy and play over the next month, just as you did as a child.

Energetically speaking November should be a good month. Meaning that it should feel fairly smooth to those who are sensitive to the energy. It is still important to keep your focus on what you are trying to accomplish, and it should be easier to keep that focus. I am personally better at working with the higher energy than the lower energy. I seem to be extra sensitive when it is low and work harder at bringing my levels up than I do when it is high. When it is high, I use any manic energy well. The last month, it has been lower and have had to spend more time boosting myself up, not taking anything personally and being more disciplined and keeping my focus.

November should be less stress if you go with the flow. Consciously deciding what you are working on helps to bring balance and harmony to your world. During this month the focus is on keeping the garden growing. Fostering and promoting better relationships with those you love and care about, releasing the ones that don't work and trusting that there are healthier possibilities for everyone involved. Feed what you want to grow and let the rest go their own natural evolution. People and situations always come and go, it is the cycle of life. Be thankful for the new and the old and utilize and be thankful for what you have now. Love with all of your heart, regardless!

Focus on creating peace and harmony in your relationships. Be truthful and honest with yourself and decide whether any of your relationships are raising you up or bringing you down. If they are bringing you down, and you are not prepared to release them at this time, how can you cultivate them into something that uplifts you, for surely if you are not feeling uplifted, neither is the other person, and while you are not responsible for the other person directly, you are responsible for and to yourself. So, look deep in your heart and listen to the message it shares back (a voice that speaks to you only in love, ONLY in LOVE). Look for the gift and how you can build upon that to create a better, more loving and relationship. Trust what your heart tells you and act upon that divine wisdom.

Develop a strong spiritual practice. Decide that you are worth it. Meditate daily, this is a must do. It does not have to be long. It just needs to be done. Take a moment and focus on your breath, your heart beat, the heart beat of mother earth....and when you feel all of your hearts beating together, ask, explore and listen. Set the intent to have a great day filled with kind, loving and gentle people. To be in that place of peace and shine brightly for others to feel your love, and a day filled with miracles, both experienced and witnessed as you go about your day. You have all the tools, assistance and wisdom available to you, it is up to you to utilize them now. Get really clear on what you desire (not how you desire it to come) and then be open to receive. Let the guides and the angels have the details, keep your eyes on the feeling of the desired outcome and celebrate each moment of the journey while you get there.

Be sure to release judgement, for yourself and decisions you have made as well as for others. It is enough to work on your stuff, let others be free to work on their own in their own time. Love them and let them be as they choose to be. There may well be life changing decisions and situations happening now. Trust that it is all part of the master plan of what you have been wanting. It is so vitally important to let go and release the past and the old energy. Although it isn't always fun during those times, the view from the other side is always, always so much better than you can possibly imagine. Keep going, don't give up and trust. There is great rewards awaiting you. Use your powers, for it is indeed time.

There will much opportunity to get involved in an event or meditation for the 11-11-11 energy (which is a human energy, however also an opportunity for us to gather together and effect all.), as well as Remembrance Day, so let us remember to give thanks to those who risk and give their lives, regardless of how we feel personally about war.  Mercury is Retrograde from November 24th to December 13th. And a happy Thanksgiving to our USA family.

There is still time to book a Goddess Reading Special, it is an amazing deal and the readings amaze me each time.

Love, blessings, and gratitude, Sharon

As an Empath ~ Love them Anyway by Sharon Taphorn

Emath seems to almost be a buzz word for the metaphysical community. I think the first time I heard the word was in nursing school. They wanted us to become empathetic and not sympathetic as it seemed more authentic. As someone who is was aware of what was going on around her as long as I can remember, practicing empathetic responses was no challenge.

I don't know what it is like to not be able to 'read' people. Much like commander Troi on Star Trek, I always knew what other people were feeling. I knew if they lied, I knew if they were sad, happy, scary, good, etc. I understood emotion more so that I actually read minds. However, I could do that as well. I spent more time delving into the world of the emotions. I did not always know what was mine and what was theirs, so I had to learn and understand how to work with the energy that is around me.

I think that roughly 80% of the population is going through some kind of empathic awakening. It is one of the sixth senses and allows us to gain a better understanding of what are fellow journeyers are going through. It helps us to develop compassion. It is a shift symptom, or ascension symptom, or perhaps I should say a reward. As we learn that others can feel our feelings and thoughts, we (as a species) will begin to clean ourselves up. It is the result of our evolutionary shifts.

As we awaken, we are at different levels of awakening.  And therefore, we are all different levels of developing and using our empathic abilities. I sometimes meet people who are really into the latest buzz word who say...Oh, I am 100% empath on the quiz. I am 100% tuned in, and then that same person turns around and gossips about another, or speaks knowing untruths, or is out of truth in their behaviour, and I wonder how they think that is empathic. That is not to say they are not in some way working on developing it, it does however lend to the notion that metaphysics is flaky or odd.  As I experience my journey, I have had to come to terms with accepting that people can lie, regardless of the path they are on.

I remember the first time a best friend lied to me. It broke my heart. It was just a little, irrelevant lie, so I was surprised that it hurt so much.  I think that because we were such good friends, that she wouldn't feel the need to lie. I already understood lying. This seemed different. I now understand that the level of growth I was at, at that time was to learn how unimportant lies really are. I had stories of rug being pulled out from under me before and always tried to go to that place of 'finding the gift' and that if I loved them enough once to call them my friend, then I loved them enough to get over anything with them. This often baffled a few people in my life, however it seemed so much important to me that the rest of the 'stuff' that happens. Once again I have found myself feeling a bit let down by the actions of someone I deemed to be of higher of integrity. So, I am reminded that first, don't take things personally, and second, that is better to know up front that some people aren't living in integrity, and it is better to know this than to wonder if you reading the situation wrong and second guessing yourself. Also, to Love them Anyway.

As we explore being in our truth, we must discover what that truth is and how we fit into things. As we evolve and develop our senses we need to discover that source of deep, compassionate love and understanding for each other.  We need to look into the heart of the person standing next to us, not the colour of their hair, or skin. Develop looking into our own hearts before we speak or do. These are empathic qualities and learning to work with them.

Practice daily cleansing of your auric field and chakra systems. Doing a cleanse in the shower each morning is a perfect way to start each day. Knowing where your energy field is at all times is important. Set it consciously. If you are encountering a lot other people from all walks of life during your day, bring it closer to your body. This lessens what you pick up from others. If you are going somewhere where you want to be tuned into everything, make it larger. Remember to clear it when you are done to not carry around so much of stuff that belongs to others. Do regular clearing meditations to release any cords we have with others, or they have with us. These are a few tips that can make a difference in how you experience the world. Find groups of like minded and like energy people to hang out with, at least a few times a month. Find a support group who is on a similar path to your own. Know we will always be on different paths while we are still climbing the same mountain.

We need to learn to "love them anyway", as Mother Theresa said when asked about her compassion for all living things. Love them anyway!
