Wake up and feel life today

It is a few days before the New Year of 2019 and I am always up so early in the morning and use this time to reflect and give gratitude. That sounds like such a mulled over statement these days, almost as if you are saying hello out of habit. What makes reflecting and giving gratitude different these days for me is the intention and heartfelt energy I put into this special time.

2018 was drastically different. I was in Seattle recovering from a bone marrow transplant procedure. The whole ordeal took almost a year to go through. 2017 We had just bought a beautiful, peaceful sixteen acres that was a canvas for a dream of mine to live out the last part of my life with the retired horses – I did equine/canine bodywork for over 15 years. My husband supported me all the way and we started building loafing sheds and pastures. Then in May 2017 I was diagnosed with AML, leukemia and my world came to a halt as far as living on the farm.

I was given three months to live if I did not seek out treatment right away. As much as I wanted to seek out natural methods and inner voice kept saying bone marrow transplant will cure you. So I listened and moved to Seattle with the help of two amazing families that housed me while I went through treatment. It was the hardest time in my life and my husband, and family as well. Yet I can only speak for myself in saying that it opened up a whole new way of looking at life. I spent years before learning many self help and spiritually tools to be a better me. All the tools came together for me during that year of 2017 and has continued to surround my very being. I have always been very spiritual but what I learned that would take me one step further is letting go and at the same time never push away the light whatever it may bring.

When I reflect, chant, pray, and give gratitude I have to feel it in my heart so that there can be that vibration in me that feels a connection. Just saying things out of habit should not be said.

You need to feel it and say it and put it out there.

Wake up and feel life today,
