We Are Spirit Having A Physical Experience
Living Our Deeper Song
Think about it – before we were born as humans, we were simply spirit, part of an all-encompassing, expansive, originating whole. We still are that, we are just not as aware of it as we could be. We are here as humans to both contribute and learn.
So what does it mean to be spirit? It means we are all one energy and there is no division, no reason for wars and hatred because we are all spirit.
Life consists of a series of spiritual experiences. We must see our most mundane tasks as spiritual expression. We learn from everything we do and everything we think. When we bring our awareness of being spirit to everything we do, our life experience changes.
Spirit is all-encompassing. Spirit is inclusive. Spirit is loving and kind and aware. Spirt is in all things.
When we experience ourselves as spirit, our responsibility changes. We must rise above our human view and express ourselves as the spiritual light that we are. Be aware of how you walk in the world. Be your best version of spirit in human form.

How Do You Know When It Is Time To Change?
First you have to realize that the situation needs to change. Then you need to see what is pulling you off track. What has changed? What is no longer working? What new opportunities have presented themselves?
You know it’s time to check your inner compass when things get hard or when what you are doing is no longer working and when new ideas and opportunities keep popping up.
You always have choice and the choices you make will open new paths and make you choose to leave others unexplored. How do you know when it is time to change? Keep exploring.
What Do You Want To Learn In 2024?
I want to figure out my role and participation in helping the world heal and balance and change.
I want to make more in-person friends both on staff and among the residents.
I want my eyes to let me keep reading and writing.
I want to learn something unexpected.
What do you want to learn in 2024?
What Is Your Energetic Signature?
We all came here to increase our energetic signature on the web of life where we are all one. How we do that is a vital element of our uniqueness and our life choices.
It may be that we move through our life as an example of serenity and compassion that others see and seek to emulate. It may be that we are an activist in an area that calls to us and we educate and motivate and organize. Our role is probably somewhere in between.
We may change one life or maybe we will knowingly or unknowingly impact many lives by our presence. I think my energetic signature is curiosity and a search for wholeness. What is your energetic signature?
Explore A New Point Of View
When you move to a different point of view you gain a whole new perspective. A dog’s perspective is entirely different from a tree’s perspective. A child’s perspective is different from an adult’s perspective.
A new viewpoint does not need to be dramatic. Seeing the world from another perspective, whether spatially or mentally, can introduce you to all sorts of hidden treasures. The root of the discovery process often lies in finding another way of looking at the world.
How Do You Show Your Love For Yourself?
Is it a bubble bath? A glass of wine? A new computer? How do you show your love for yourself?
My brain is my favorite toy. We have great fun together. I nurture it a lot. It is the source of my connection with others. It is a source of inspiration and choice and new experiences.
My body gives me pleasure. At 91 it is still supportive of interaction with others, some activities and relatively good health. It has been a good supportive body all my life.
My spiritual inquisitiveness has been a major source of adventure, taking me on many journeys and experiences that enrich my life and expand and deepen my contribution. I keep exploring and experimenting.
What do I need to add to express my love for myself? It is a relief to find friends among the younger staff here. I don’t find old people very interesting because they are not actively inquisitive so my 13 years in a senior independent living facility was lacking in stimulating social exchanges except with the younger staff. Now I have access to smart, young fellow healers and it is enriching my life.
I have younger like-minded friends I speak with on Zoom who enrich my spiritual path and nurture me as close friends.
I have a creative spiritual practice that includes nature and music.
I seem to have many ways that I show love for myself. How do you show your love for yourself?
Disposal Of My Body
I want to be buried in a mushroom suit. It is an organic assist that helps your body return naturally to the elements. I really like that idea. My son-in-law has some rural property and I would like to be buried there under a young weeping birch tree I can nurture. It is legal in Kansas. I am not sure it will happen but it is what I would like.
Strip Away Anything That No Longer Sustains Growth
It can be a belief. It can be an expectation. It can be a fear. It can be a misunderstanding or misinterpretation. What is stopping you from growing or exploring or changing?
Sometimes we need more information. Sometimes we need to walk down the path a little way to see how it feels and what unfolds. And sometimes we even want someone to tell us it’s not ours to do.
It’s important for you to notice what you no longer need or what is holding you back and then identify your apprehension about the choices before you. Identify those barriers and see how valid they are.
We all want to keep growing. Make a point to strip away anything that no longer sustains growth.
Unsubscribe And Give Yourself Room For New Ideas To Come In
I have begun to unsubscribe to subscriptions that I do not read or whose topics no longer resonate with me. It is a waste of my time and I simply delete then.
I am looking at how I spend my time – how interesting it is – how it deepens my understanding and expands my awareness. When I release things, I create room for new ideas to be explored. I’m looking more closely at how I spend my time – what I focus on, what I accomplish.
Do I have new goals for the coming year? I want to make certain that my choices move me forward – provide new insights – inspire new action. I will keep reading and inspiring and evolving and see where it leads me. Give yourself room for the new ideas to come in.
Create A Process Of Releasing
My friend was not caring for herself – poor grooming, eating unhealthy foods. Her self-care had gone by the wayside. It was New Year’s Eve and I suggested she do a releasing ceremony in the form of a long shower in which she washed away and released all that no longer serves her. There would be tears and sadness and relief.
There are many forms of releasing ceremonies – burning, writing on paper and tearing it up, burying it, releasing it through soap bubbles. Create what works for you.
For part of my releasing ceremony I journaled a thank you to my experiences in 2023. I choose the gifts I wanted to bring forward and increased my awareness of what I wanted to leave behind and not repeat.
You may want to create a ceremony releasing the end of the day or the end of a project or the end of a relationship – any place that you feel that you need closure and release and completion. There are many ways to create a process of releasing to clear your path ahead.
Move To Trash
It was very good to go through part of my computer files and hit “Move To Trash”. It was a good sense of releasing and cleaning house. I am keeping way too much on my computer.
Is it time to review your storage pattern? I’m glad to come across my favorite quotes but there are ideas I am never going to address again that I can delete. If I do, I will have a new viewport from which to start. How do you clear out the files on your computer and how do you organize it for the coming year?
How To Attract Your Next Opportunity
Look around and your next step will be shown to you.
I am looking for new ways to contribute that expand and deepen what I get to learn and experience. The universe knows this or I would not even be having these thoughts about wanting to expand. That’s the universe clearing and nudging and preparing the soil for a new adventure.
My job is about identifying the opportunity that is mine to do. It will not be a particularly wide selection because the universe has been guiding me for a long time and we both kind of know where I’m supposed to go next. So my job is going to be to examine and explore and choose from the carefully selected ideas the universe will place before me.
Your next opportunity will be found by looking around you at the nudges and offerings and situations the universe provides for you to choose from. Keep on the lookout. The universe is already lining up new opportunities for you.
It is foggy outside my window. It is like being in a cloud. It is hazy and I cannot see very far. It makes me want to go within and contemplate and see what I think and feel. It is a time for introspection. It is time for stillness and awareness of self. I sit in silence and listen to my inner world.
The Universe Has A Plan For Us
I am very excited. It was a totally unexpected gift from the Universe.
Years ago in New York City I took an oil painting class that at its essence was about trusting your Inner Voice and painting whatever showed up. For me it was abstract and colorful. I painted 30 or more of them in NYC. I have two left and they are on my wall in my small space.
In a recent arts and crafts event, Patricia, the social worker who organizes them, had some 4×6 glass frames that she traces designs on for people to paint and I realized that was the perfect size for me to resume my Inner Voice Painting and I can hang them in my big windows! I have a lot of stained glass and dream catchers in my window now but it is a very big window so I have a way to do my Inner Voice painting again. The Universe does take very good care of us in many different ways.

Nudges From The Universe
It was an unexpected solution – a creative way to meet a need.
It was an unexpected solution – a creative way to meet a need. A piece here – an observation there, and the Universe brought them together in a simple solution.
