Today I am vacuuming the apartment.  I hate vacuuming.  I have to tap to get in the mood to do this necessary job.  I have to tap to let the job of vacuuming be a meditation for me.

 

Well, guess what?

 

It worked!

 

I was vacuuming and breathing as I moved my body back and forth with that blasted machine………..I began thinking about my sons.  I was thinking as I vacuumed and as I meditated how I love them so very much.  They know now, since they have children of their own, too, that feeling of utmost love that is unconditionally present when you look at your child.

 

So, was it any wonder that the following thought came into my mind?  Because I love my sons so very much, I trusted and knew with a certainty that amazed me, that they have chosen the most perfect women for them to spend the rest of their lives with.   It came to me as a revelation how perfect, as soul mates, their wives are.

 

It came to me that my trust in their intelligence and decision-making was at the highest level right now, and that this is because I can say without any doubts, their spouses are there for them and ready to grow entirely, that is, mentally, physically, and spiritually, with them for the rest of their lives.

 

OK, you  caught me, I did have to stop vacuuming because tears came to my eyes then…….

 

I am so blessed to know this and feel this in my heart.  Way to go, Forrest and Kevin!  You are the pride of my heart!  And I know you will continue to amaze me for the next 50+ or – years that I’ll see your learning and growth.

OK, OK, my older son had told me about blogging several years ago. He is a computer expert, and he knew I enjoyed reading and also writing very much. I began yet did not keep that blog up then. I had more life that seemed to be necessary to live, family and friends to keep up with, a move to California, volunteering with San Diego Reiki Corps, 2 years in the United States Peace Corps, Ukraine 2010-2012. All along, I was continuously studying and applying Gary Craig’s tapping methods ​via tapping called EFT, Emotional Freedom Technique, studying EFT then with Dawson Church, then a study and practice of massage therapy techniques in Nepal and Thailand.

Beginning to blog was a result of my tapping practice. I realized I wanted to share more of my ideas and solutions. It is also thanks to a fellow tapping coach, Christine at http://www.practialcalearners.com, that the value of sharing solutions to life’s problems became even more apparent.​ Resources ​benefiting me were available from Dawson Church, Donna Eden, Gene Monterastelli, Joan Borysenko, Rick Hanson, and others. How could I not share in this explosion of great ideas and solution-focused work​ using energy​?

What are the values of blogging?

First and foremost, blogging is a meditative practice. Instead of focusing on 77 ideas at once, in blogging, you must concentrate on one idea or theme and ​develop​ that idea in an orderly fashion. Authorities say we have over 60,000 thoughts in a day, most of these thoughts are repetitive. So, way-to-go, blogging helps your mind to be focused. Blogging would also help to train your mind to be more concise. And I notice I relax as I am writing, so it may benefit you also all around physically as well as emotionally and mentally.

Second, blogging becomes a way to open your heart more and even trust more. Yes, of course I practice daily yoga and energy practices including tapping ​and Donna Eden’s Five mInute routine​. However, blogging makes me see that what I share unconditionally and without fear opens me up and makes a difference in my feelings towards myself and all others.

Third, blogging encourages you to train your mind and become clear about what you do feel or think about a topic. Or, if no single answer, blogging is a way to record your uncertainly about a topic. I have so many ideas that are here in my drafts. I only hit that “publish” when ​I feel blog is ready to be shared with another human being. Even if my uncertainty shows in the blog, that’s ok, A blog does not need to be perfect but may be published to uncover my own feelings and thoughts and those opinions of another person who may have a reaction to my blog.​

What a relief to know blogging keeps that basic sense of always being a mind trainer. And I had worried that the art of writing, I ​very much ​enjoy writing letters, had died out…..no way!

Fourth, and maybe most importantly in your busy lives of so much technology and not enough listening: You will be heard. You will be heard maybe by thousands, or maybe by five people, yet know with certainly you are essential in this world. What you blog has an influence on the world around you. Your ideas and solutions and sharing are essential, just like YOU are ​ESSENTIAL ​to our world.

So, get out there and blog! ​S​tart slowly or start quickly, but share and open your heart and know that your can trust your blog to help guide and organize your feelings and thoughts in all planes of life​.​

Have you been encouraged to blog?​ Who or what is that person or event who got you started?​ Let me know……..
