Well hello little badass calendar
Well aren’t you full of good advice today…
Great advice, really, for those who are just having a bad day or three.
Now I’m not in the habit of comparing pain because that’s not healthy.
But I am sure that you will agree, little badass calendar, that making broad sweeping statements about keeping one’s frequency high and doing work from a place of power and joy isn’t really good advice while facing the death of a loved one, trauma, or the jagged edge of the abyss.
It might be proper advice if, for instance, I have a hangnail, cannot find smoked turkey legs at the grocery, or am contemplating a belly button.
Wait – just whose belly button am I contemplating? If it weren’t my belly button, I wouldn’t need to raise my vibration – it would already be rocking and rolling.
I do agree, however, that power and joy are preferable to suffering.
When I was in the midst of the trauma of Larry’s death, walking along the edge of the abyss (while contemplating jumping), and thinking there was no way out, I had to make a conscious decision that I just could not suffer anymore.
It was a hard decision to make. Part of me wanted to stay in the suffering, woe-is-me state, and live there for the rest of my life.
After I decided that I could no longer live in a state of suffering, I realized that Larry, my Parents, Grandparents, sister Dana, are all still here with me – in my heart, soothing my soul, walking beside me, talking to me, and giving me advice every step of the way.
The realization brings me great comfort, joy, power, and peace.
My take on it is this:
I was always taught that when we die our souls return to the presence of G-d.
Where is G-d?
G-d is everywhere.
Since G-d is indeed everywhere, then it stands to reason that my loved ones who have died are also everywhere. All around me. Right beside me. The veil between the living and those who have transitioned to their next great adventure is very thin.
All I have to do is be open, still, accepting, and listen.
XO Lisa ❤️ living a gratitude filled life!
