When the Universe Speaks to Me

Sometimes tension and stress accumulate so gradually that we just don’t notice, or at least I don’t always notice, and then it becomes the unhealthy “normal.”

It’s been a troubling week on many levels. Shootings in America, the passing of two acquaintances, and the illness and hospitalization of others – every day has brought a new challenge.

Earlier tonight, when I least expected it, someone posted a music video on Facebook. I was intrigued that it was played with two of my favorite instruments, a violin and the harp.

Some music seems destined to soothe the soul, regardless of beliefs.

This tune is one of those songs.

It is an instrumental and it’s powerful. I found myself taking a deep breath and releasing stress without even thinking about it. I felt better.  The music was my medicine. I listened twice, shared it to my timeline, and kept on browsing.

I clicked onto another Facebook page, and would you believe that I saw the same song title posted by someone else, performed by another group, this time with vocals?

I love it when the Universe speaks to me.

That’s why I knew I had to share them here. I like to blog about the things that help me, so I can have easy access to them later. This is my stress-releasing musical post. I hope someone else enjoys it as much as I do.

Both videos are posted below.

Take four minutes to relax to this beautiful and harmonious melody that truly is music to soothe the soul.

 

Be Thou My Vision
Audrey Assad
Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light
Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one
Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise
Thou mine Inheritance, now and always
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart
High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art
High King of Heaven, my victory won
May I reach Heaven’s joys, O bright Heav’n’s Sun
Heart of my own heart, whate’er befall
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all

Peace. Be still.

Tribal Family History

Today I was fortunate enough to see a posting on Facebook by Gianni Crow, who feeds my soul often with his words.

My father was a home builder, actually a contractor, and was very successful. He was well known not only for his skill set, but also for his integrity and honesty. He always said that a man was only as good as his word, and his word was solid.

As an adult, I began searching for distant ancestors of my father. I discovered that the name meant “boss” in Dutch, and that many of his ancestors were ship builders.

This was particularly interesting to me, because my father’s brother and at least one of my father’s grandchildren went into home building, and one ended up working for a boat manufacturer for a short time. Other members of the family also had short term work in some type of building industry, such as drawing house plans, installing tile floors and patios, etc.

Coincidence? Not in my mind.

As GC quoted, it’s Tribal Family History.

That’s why I was thrilled when I read the following. These are the words that express my feelings… I simply could not find them on my own.

Grandfather said: All human beings had a tribal family history before they got civilized and forgot their true meaning in life. ~GC (Gianni Crow)

I’ve often said “it’s in the blood” when unusual coincidences occur, but tribal family history strikes a more resounding chord within my heart.

We are so much more than we know.

I hope you are enjoying the journey.

Numerology for May 2017

I love the many and varied methods of divinology. My favorite continues to be Tarot and Oracle Cards, because they are directly tied to my own energy and have given me amazing guidance in the past. Some believe that such readings also employ the generous guiding energy from angels, spirit guides, ancestors, and other benevolent beings.

Reading the cards, in my opinion, is similar to bibliomancy, which is a common practice among many of the religious.  Bibliomancy is when people choose to open a book randomly, seeking a word of wisdom or guidance. Again, this practice also draws from the energy of the seeker, and some believe from God or Jesus, or even the angels and the saints, especially when the chosen book is the Bible.

But today I read about my personal numerology for May, 2017. It has some good advice, so I think I’ll follow it. Interestingly, I love learning new things, so this is right on target.

Personal Year 7 — Personal Month 3

Oh golly! The 7 doesn’t enjoy the 3 any more than it does the 2. You can, however, always find something that challenging numbers share. If 2017 feels a bit more isolating for you (7), than this is also a month to begin studying a new craft, a new hobby, or a new topic. The 3 will remind you that it needs to be FUN. After all, that’s a keyword for the 3. It doesn’t matter what you want to learn, so if you believe physics is fun, go for it. It’s up to you. Don’t give into boredom — learn something new. Remember — make it FUN!
