Appreciation, Gratitude, More

28 days of pain is behind me…emotional pain for which I am now grateful!  These days have brought to me two different books which are changing my view of my life:  WHEN THINGS FALL APART by Pema Chodron and WOMEN WHO RUN WITH THE WOLVES by Clarissa Oinkola Estes.  The former is a Buddhist nun and the later is a Jungian analyst. They are both major undertakings, and they were brought to me by good friends who felt they would be good for me at this time.  They were good friends of mine and the Universe, and they were right.  Pema Chodron has become a daily practice, and Clarissa has become a major challenge, once accepted, so very worthwhile.   Like any challenge and work with the soul, there are very deep moments that are best explored and then left behind.  Those deep moments occurred last night, but, as always, sleep became the antidote for those of us who are steeped in spirituality and the Universe.  Those moments had to be experienced before I could move on, and I have moved on.   The morning mirror talk was sound and positive.  The calendar for my LIVE Facebook sessions for February is complete and focuses on the month of Valentines Day and the emotions that month brings.  I am calm, I am stable, and I am resolute to be appreciative for what I have.  More than that, I also am grateful for walking through these 28 days with Source to get through the initial days of 2019. As I continue my work with Pema and Clarissa, I am now appreciative more than ever for who I am.  I am a “wild” woman, and I now understand that in a beginning sense–I have another 200+ pages to go!  It explains to me who I am as an independent woman who is tremendous boat rocker.  Many would like me to just settle down.  It ain’t gonna happen.  I have the soul of a “wild” woman.  I am who I am supposed to be.  I may not be understood by many, but I understand myself so much better because of these last 28 days, and, you know what, I am smiling again.  Smiling because I am once again reminded that the Universe, aka as SOURCE, is with me, and there was a reason for these days.  Sometime, some how, I will realize what that reason was, but, until then, I am appreciative of the wonderfully soulful friends who walked with me through this valley of time, who understand my levity in the face of pain, and to whom I am forever grateful that SOURCE provided you in 2019! janicelitterst@gmail.com Advertisements

Easy Like Monday Morning…Really!

Monday mornings should be easy for everyone…spread your quiet joy to everyone you meet this morning, and this afternoon, and tomorrow, etc.  It is amazing what a smile can do for the person sharing it and the person receiving it…it opens hearts, it allows receptivity, and it gives a glimpse to our connectedness, our oneness.

Strong & Smiling for the Future!

There are five elements in life:  space, fire, air, water, and earth.  No matter who you are and how you are influenced, you will be out of balance on your journey to where you are headed.  Some will face imbalance more often than others, but the secret is to recognize when things are not quite right […]

Money: Foundational Personal Sustainability

When Maslow created his Hierarchy of Needs, the foundational piece of the Triangle was basic needs such as food, clothing, and shelter.  Today, for many, those basic needs are not even available due to their financial situation.  Over the many years I have had in government services and traditional financial services, it is my total belief […]

Here I Go Again…I Quit as an Adult!

For those of you who regularly read my blogs, they have really been a disappointment this past week…I was going through a tantrum time and really needed a nap and to be sent to my room, which never happened until the last 24 hours. So, with a deep breath after the tantrum, a literal red cape […]
