A Tribute to My Auntie Sherril

AuntSherril2Last night, for the first time, I sat with a loved one while she peacefully took her last breath.  I had so many revelations through these moments.

The world has become a lot dimmer and the Heavens became a lot brighter last night as my beautiful aunt Sherril transitioned to be with our Creator.

Aunt Sherril, I will miss your smiling face, your warm hugs, and your infectious laughter and sense of humor. You were a wonderful mother, a beloved auntie, a devoted daughter & wife, a phenomenal grandma and, according to my mom, the best sister a gal could ever have! » Read more..

My Transformation 2013-2014, A Pictorial Review

“I was emotionally messed up and, truth is, I hated myself….”

I was nominated by a few people on Facebook to share some pictures of me that make me feel beautiful.  I’m posting them here, because I want to also share why they make me feel beautiful, in hopes of inspiring others: 1.  I was very, very sick… and also very wounded inside.  I was emotionally messed up and, truth is, I hated myself.  I had so many » Read more..

Why I Refuse to Share…

I inevitably come across social media posts with reckless images of someone abusing an animal or child, urging me to share the content.  For the love of humanity, I refuse to share.  Below are some of my reasons why, and a glimpse into what I do instead.  Read on to discover the importance of your own vibration and in joining me in this practice.

Everything in the Universe moves and vibrates.  That includes us.  The thoughts we have (and hold) have an immediate impact on our vibration and, much like a ripple in a lake, our vibration influences our own environment; every life we touch; and the world at large*.

HippieThoughts

So, when I am asked to share these images and horrible stories, I simply refuse, because:

A.  I think about how I FEEL when I see these images.  That feeling is something I am vibrating out to the Universe.  What I vibrate at impacts my life and every life I touch.  Which raises a couple of questions:

  1. Why would I want to hold that vibration (and therefore attract similar vibrations back toward me)?
  2. Why would I want to add that vibration to the Universe, therefore impacting every life in it?

B.  Once we see the image, it’s in our mind and heart.  Our experiences, thoughts, and environmental input are not just in the head, they are also experienced in the body.  Every image you see; every book you read; every movie you watch, every experience you have, every trauma you experience – they are all stored in this mind-body system.  This includes the energy bodies, and it includes That which is connected to All That Is.  So, one must ask ones Self, “Why would I want to proliferate this image (and associated feelings) into my own body?  Or that of others?  Or out into the All That Is?”

C.  The All That Is holds the Cosmic Web of Consciousness; every thought that exists and has ever existed.  Not just your thoughts and experiences, but that of every other person who is currently living or has ever lived.  The more negativity we proliferate into the Cosmic Web of Consciousness, the more negativity we build up in our current societies and all generations of the future.  What’s more, this negativity must eventually have an outlet.  The same as people are driven to random acts of kindness, susceptible ones are also driven to random acts of violence (such as the 2012 Auorora ‘Batman shooting’ or the terrorist acts of the twin towers).  They are all acts, driven by what is stored in the All That Is.  Better to proliferate love, is it not?

D.  Most people’s initial reaction to something like this, is to wish the same harm upon the perpetrator, thereby proliferating even a bigger storm of negativity and impure thoughts back out into the All That Is.  As we can see in paragraph C, this has monumental impacts upon the entire world now and in the future.  Hate breeds hate.

E.  Once I have seen an image like this, it is very difficult to keep it from popping into my consciousness over and over again.  For most folks, every time the image pops into their consciousness, it will create a holding pattern of keeping them in that lower vibration and bringing up Screen Shot 2014-07-04 at 4.52.16 PMmore and more negative thoughts.  Again, these thoughts and feelings get proliferated out into the All That Is and, eventually, those thoughts & feelings must have an outlet.  Why would we do this to our Brothers and Sisters?  Or to ourselves?

So, when I see a post like this on social media, instead of proliferating the negativity and opening the door to my Brothers and Sisters to have the images burned into their consciousness, I pray instead.  I pray and ask God to bless the perpetrator and the victim, and I pray for the liberation of the souls of both.  Then, I post something positive on my own wall; be it a post of gratitude, or a funny.  I hope you will join me in this practice of holding and proliferating a positive vibration, for the Greater Good.

Blessings, Love and Light to you!

In Love and Gratitude,

Jodi

*Studies have been performed, having a monk or a group of people meditate (holding a higher vibration) to see if it could reduce crime rates in the area.  Preliminary statistics from one study (published in the New York Times) reported that violent crime dropped 23.6 percent in the first four weeks.

How to Manifest the Perfect Man (or Woman)

I am the world’s luckiest woman. My Love takes such good care of me. I am currently in an Ayurvedic clinic in India where most of the staff here do not speak very good English.  My Love (an Indian Native) generally handles the communication with the staff.  He recently left on a business trip, and before he left, he fetched a supply of water to last me until he returns, he told the nurses to take care of and watch over me while he is gone, and he pre-arranged for my breakfast to be delivered every morning (he takes care of that when he is here).  He made sure I have everything I need and the day he left, he told me how beautiful I am, AND he gave me the most amazing massage after I told him my muscles were hurting. Wow.  God must really love me, to bless me with such an amazing guy. Truly. So grateful. Thank you, God. He truly is exceptional. I’ve never met anyone like him. Next to God, he is my total best friend.

Listen, I haven’t always been so lucky in love.  I’ve had my fair share of losers.  (Okay.  That’s probably an understatement lol).  So, how did I end up with such a phenomenal guy?  Well, in New Age speak, I ‘manifested’ him.  In old school talk, I prayed for him and my ‘prayers were answered’.  Which ever verbiage works for you, go with it!  

You see, through the years, I’ve said many prayers for that right guy, and I had made many a list of exactly what I wanted in a man.  Men would come into my life that would actually possess these very qualities I was hoping for, yet the relationships just didn’t work.  So, what did I do different this time?  It can be summed up into two words:  Allow and Surrender.  This time, I said my prayer and I surrendered the rest to the Universe, or my divine.  After that, I just forgot about it and went on with life, with the faith that God would bring the right man into my life at precisely the right time for us both.

My prayer was also different.  I didn’t ask for a man that has any specific quality, like being kind and caring and loving.  I didn’t ask for a man that looked a certain way or had financial stability.  I had already learned that asking for these things didn’t work.  So this time, I simply surrendered it to my divine and asked for a man with pure intentions, the most beautiful heart; whom I have things in common with; who would have my best interest at heart and would be the perfect match for me Right Now.  Then I left the rest up to God.

I didn’t stipulate that it needed to last forever either.  Instead, I realized that God knows exactly what I need in my life right now and whether or not it is a relationship that’s here for a reason, a season, or a lifetime?  Well, that’s really not my business until or unless it’s revealed to me.  In other words, I gave up my crystal ball and simply left it all up to God. 

It was shortly after that prayer that Terrance showed up in my life.  I’m sure glad I left all the little details up to God, because Terrance has far exceeded all of my expectations of how a man could enrich my life.  Had I tried to inject what I wanted into that prayer, I don’t think I would have someone as amazing as Terrance because, in my consciousness at that time in my life, I didn’t even realize men like Terrance existed outside of a fairytale.  Thank GOD I didn’t limit myself!!

My point?  Don’t pray for a man or woman that will do this or that for you.  Don’t pray for a man or woman that looks a certain way.  Don’t pray for a man or woman that has this quality or that quality.  Don’t pray for a relationship that will last forever.  Instead, pray for a man or woman that has pure intentions and a heart of gold.  Pray for the man or woman that you can have fun with, who will make you feel like a goddess (or a stud), who understands the value of the human spirit and will have your best interest at heart.  And then once you’ve said that prayer, surrender to the Current Moment; to Right Now, knowing that God or the Universe will deliver exactly who you need at exactly the precise timing that you need him or her – not a millisecond sooner or later.  

Have faith, that if you are still single, there is a reason for that.  And if you are tired of being alone, whose to say God isn’t spending this time forming and shaping and molding you into the person your ‘One’ is going to recognize and, if you met a minute too soon, maybe s/he wouldn’t recognize you at all?  

Have faith, that if you lost a love, it wasn’t yours to keep.  Whose to say God didn’t bring that person into your life to mold and form you into the person you are meant to be; the person your ‘One’ will be able to recognize?  Perhaps the last love that you lost was brought into your life simply as a mirror to teach you about yourself.  If you learned anything valuable or had any valuable experience from it, then there’s a lot to be grateful for… many spend a lifetime alone without ever experiencing romantic love at all.  Many don’t even know what it feels like to know that someone’s got your back.  If you do, get own on your knees and thank God for that.

Once you say your prayer, LET IT GO, with the FAITH that your divine is going to bring that right person at precisely the right time for you both and not a second sooner or later.  If you’re constantly thinking about wanting a man or the fact that you don’t have a man (or woman), then guess what?  That’s what you’re vibrating out to the Universe, and if you’re vibrating that out to the Universe, then that is what you are creating.  So, instead, say your prayer and release it into the Universe (hand it over to God) and then surrender to God’s will in your life.  In the meantime, move foreword spending the next however-long-it-takes working on YOU and finding out what makes YOU happy because by doing that, you are already getting one step closer to the love you deserve (and the love your One deserves to receive).

Everything happens in it’s own time.  If it’s not happening, it’s not time yet.  God doesn’t always give us what we want.  God gives us what we WOULD want if we could see what God can see and if we knew what God knows.

Experiencing God

IMG_6302 Previously, I shared my experience with you about the phenomenon of the divine holding the coin to the wall… and I’m sure this was really hard for most of you to believe, having not experienced it yourself.  I was actually able to get some videos of this phenomenon at a different site; the Nandi bull in Mysore.

I’m sure it may still be hard for some to believe.  I showed one of these videos to a friend here in Mysore, and even seeing a video, she refused to believe there wasn’t some trick behind it.  She was just certain that there was tar on the bull, or that it was magnetized.  It’s unfortunate that her mind wouldn’t let her believe… because it’s such a beautiful, sacred experience.

If you ever get the chance to come to India, bring coins with you.. because this is one experience you must have before you leave; especially if you lack in faith.

Here’s a video of me, channeling my divine to accept my offering.  It’s one of the most amazing experiences of my life.  Notice, in the second video, you can see the coin sliding beneath my finger-tips, so it’s evident that the bull is not magnetized or tarred:

 

Here is my friend, Bala, during his first experience of this phenomenon:

 

And my friend, Raphaela:

One person said they felt electricity come through their arm.  I don’t remember what the other said.  Personally, I felt heat come through my arm.  Thank you to my beautiful friends for being a testimony to the divine for the world to see.  Thank you to Spirit for allowing the recording and flowing through on this day <3

If you lack in fath, see how you lack in faith.  Ask your divine to reveal itself to you; to give you an experience that you can’t deny; an experience that you can carry with you for a lifetime and never doubt again.

Catch the GLB (God’s Love Bug)!

heart-bugSomething’s happening.  You may not know it yet, but it’s taking the world by storm.. and it’s contagious.  If you read this post, you will likely catch it.  You’ve been warned.  You see, it’s the divine (or call it what you will – Spirit, Creator, God, the Universe.. what ever resonates with you).  It’s God’s Love Bug… the divine expressing itself through-out the Universe, in a language we can all understand; in the language of the divine.

The divine talks to us all the time, through various avenues, and one very powerful means of communication is through visual symbols.  The language of the divine is Love, so how can the divine express love visually?  Through hearts!

Yes.  Hearts!  Seriously folks, check out these pictures. They are just a very small sampling of the collection I’ve captured, throughout my journey in India, of this phenomenon.

The divine is everywhere, expressing itself through hearts, to show you that you’re not alone, that your divine is with you every second of the day and will always be with you.

The divine expresses itself through love.  Through a piece of paper on the floor or ground – or through trash:

Through the rocks:

Through the animals – seriously folks, I can’t make this stuff up lol!  There are too many miracles here to deny it.  How many perfectly shaped heart rocks have you seen in your life time?  How many animals with hearts?  Aside from the two pics of me kneeling by the calve, these are all different animals that have crossed my path!  Even the calf that looks the same on the second row.. notice one has white legs and the other doesn’t.

 IMG_7067 IMG_7070

It expresses through food; a ‘Good Morning’ message from the divine in your breakfast fruit salad, a treat given to you from a friend, the shape of freshly delivered pizza, or even a left over crumb (Note:  These fruit salad pictures were taken on separate occasions):

 IMG_6789 IMG_6756  IMG_6752 IMG_6696 IMG_6694IMG_6803 IMG_6211  IMG_5999

Through trees and leaves, through the way the grass grows, through the asphalt and other nature bits:

IMG_6900 IMG_6994  IMG_6820  IMG_6727 IMG_6680  IMG_6196

But how do I know it’s the divine?  Well, stay tuned for that story.  However, I will share this:  I was walking down the street discussing this with a friend.  Suddenly he stopped in amazement.  I asked him what was going on.  He said he asked God, “if this is real, then show me a heart”.  He then looked down and there was a heart on the sidewalk right by his foot! It looked like an oil stain of some sort, or perhaps something wet on the cement.  Later, I went back to take a picture of this heart – and it was gone.  True story!  Life is full of miracles (if you remain open to them)!!  Check out today’s Soulystic Suggestion below and open yourself to God’s miracles today.

♥ – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – SOULYSTIC SUGGESTION – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – ♥
Ask your divine to open your eyes to be able to see the signs He is sending to you.  Ask Him to let you know that He is with you at all times, and that you are not alone <3  Marvel at the miracles that unfold next.

If you catch the GLB (God’s Love Bug), please share your photos with me on my Soulystic Living Facebook page!  Too many people feel isolated and alone these days, let’s get this message out to the world!!
