Something to SEA: Rainy Day Clicks for 3/19/2016

Hello, friends on the day before spring arrives, and it might arrive here in the northeast with a wintery furor!  As of press time, the forecast is between 0 and 60 inches of snow sometime between late tonight and Monday.  At least whatever falls should melt quickly. It’s been an eye-opener of a week in many ways for me.  I’m more confident in my writing, but less confident in my health as this lupus/fibromyalgia flare just won’t quit.  It’s got me feeling very defeated right now, and the only remedy is rest.  If it doesn’t let up, I will really need to reexamine my life and my priorities, but I’m holding onto hope that the pain and fatigue will hopefully decrease soon.

Here are some interesting links from the week that I’ve saved…and of course, there are more than the usual links to things relating to Ireland, most provided by the cosmos and by one of my favorite strong spirits (the compass is pointing there, and all signs point to GO!).  Here’s hoping you’ll find something you enjoy!

Oprah & Deepak’s 21-Day Meditation Experience, Shedding the Weight: Mind, Body and Spirit! starts on Monday! Join me for a wonderful experience!

Sea My Tribute to Dr. Wayne Dyer

20150831 Beach Photo

Six months ago, if you had asked me who Dr. Wayne Dyer was, I wouldn’t have known.

Today, I am saddened to hear of his passing.

I haven’t read his books.  I haven’t listen to his talks or lectures.  And I do not follow him on social media.

However, as I have been learning more about myself this year, there are two quotes that have been very influential in how I perceive myself.  Both quotes are from Dr. Wayne Dyer.

The first is, “Begin to see yourself as a soul with a body, rather than a body with a soul.”  The day I read that was the day that I changed my thinking about how I saw myself.  I have never felt comfortable in my own skin, but looking at my body as the vessel for my soul really made me feel more at ease.  It’s my soul that matters, not my body, and finally I can look at myself with confidence and acceptance.  My soul finally feels at home.

The second quote is, “You are not stuck where you are unless you decide to be.”  While I have felt “stuck” for a long time, I have realized over the past few months that I am in continual process of learning who I am.  And it’s been a very rewarding and beneficial journey so far.

Thanks to Dr. Wayne Dyer and his words of inspiration, I sit here today sharing my thoughts and experiences with you.  SoulSEAker is a real entity, and I am navigating it’s journey.

My sincerest condolences to Dr. Wayne Dyer’s family and friends during this difficult time.

Until next time,

Jill
