ALPHA AND OMEGA…the beginning and the end….

i get really heady in these last few days before the great unfolding of a new year approaches. so much to disect and ponder with a year gone by, and so much anticipation with what could potentially lay ahead….not to mention as a collective we (the world) ponder such things, then i alone sit in an even more personal reflection as my birthday falls on the very last day of the year. so i have all the nervous anxiety with reflecting on my year gone by, and with the entire world fuss about the new one coming ahead.

i have always had a difficult time with this time of year….new year, old regrets or should haves, or time wasted, or effort not applied…then birthday…older….where am i in life? what the hell am i doing with myself??? you get it by now, yah??

 

THIS YEAR IS DIFFERENT!!!!! i am so excited for this time! i am so grateful for the gift of new beginnings; new firsts; new ALPHAS…..i can change, mold, shape myself into exactly what i want to be, what i want my world to look like, and how i want to contribute in the world. there is no greater gift than the gift of making new choices or keeping the same ones….

choice.

change.

correct.

and you cant have an ALPHA without the OMEGA…because with “Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.”

the bow on that gift i was talking about earlier?? is the ability to drop the old. 

drop it.

shed it. 

let it go.

if it didnt work, THE END.

such a gift to start anew. to be able and willingly courageous to end habits, scenarios, choices that simply have come to a dead end. aaaah…..we are free to choose. and the power to follow it through comes from the power in us that is Greater than ourselves. we just call on it.

upon coming to a new year and a clean slate untainted, i have such gratitude that i can have a new beginning each and every day. i tend to forget that sometimes, but i hope you remember as well, you can start over everyday, every hour, midday stuff isnt going right…correct it then and there. you have the power to choose.

the power to choose an ending to an old beginning and to choose a new beginning from an old end…..and sometimes the end never comes, its just a beginning, un-ended…….(total Chrissy Snow moment)….

i send out a blessing for us all in 2013…we only live once, and if youre gonna do it, do it this year…theres no time better than now!

this happens to be the year of the snake. it is a charming one, a smart, positive and cunning time! Go with it, shed your old skin and feel the refreshing surge of new energy.

 

i believe in you.

 

happy new year.

happy new you…if you want it…. 😉

embrace the magic 

embrace each other

but all this start by embracing you.

sometimes water is thicker than blood…..

everyday i take for granted my lil glass bottle full of my herbs and water that i  sip on daily. its such a part of my daily routine that i wouldnt even recognize myself without my green bottle in my hand.

a friend of mine has made me very aware of a charity his charity has partnered with to bring fresh clean water to Ethiopian children. the water that is available to the children is vast. there is plenty of water on hand but it is not drinkable. WAVES FOR WATER or (you can find the mission at) http://www.wavesforwater.com is helping transform the water by supplying the village with filters and a system that will successfully provide all of that water available into pure drinking water.

this project will help eradicate cholera, typhoid, dysentery, e.coli, and so many other water traveling diseases from their water source.

everyday, i sip on my herb infused water and dont even take a moment to give gratitude for the ease in which i drink it. it is expected. i feel entitled to pure drinking water, and yet there are people, children, babies, animals, and elderly that dont get the simplest form of what i think is a human right. pure water. these facts and insight remind me to be grateful for the water i get to drink. and for the record, i am entitled to healthy water as i feel EVERY LIVING BEING IS ENTITLED TO PURE DRINKING WATER.

i am going to gift myself for Christmas a water filter for the children of sister donna francis’ refuge she built called HEARTLAND located in Argisa, Ethiopia. this is the greatest gift i can give myself. $50 for a filter buys me peace of mind. peace of mind knowing some little girl out there will have pure water whenever she needs it. and i am blessed enough in these rough economic times, and even though things are tight for me, i can offer $50 bucks for a whole shelter of children to have drink. this makes my soul leap! 

i invite you to also donate if your heart is pulled toward this mission. there is a link below. you can donate anything you can. if you dont have $50 for a filter and you have a beautiful $10 bill to give…you will be blessed beyond measure just the same. if you want to give more perhaps, they wont say no to it. and again, you and the children will be blessed beyond measure.

there is something that takes place in an exchange such as this. the universe steps in and self corrects the imperfections. there is correction for all involved. correction on a soul level, and correction on a physical level.  and in this exchange water becomes thicker than blood. because we all are one. WE ARE ALL ONE. sharing pure water with those who need it; joins us. we are relating on a human level. maybe we’re not related by blood but by water and spirit, and sometimes that can be far more powerful.

all my best-
