Re-Vital-Isation

Hello Friends,

It’s been awhile since I’ve actually written a blog article. Another strange year, to be sure, and I did spend some time writing and publishing my new book Dealing With Sh*t: Becoming Your Badass Self: Fry, Lorrie K: 9798746815446: Amazon.com: Books I’d be much obliged if you purchased a copy. If you like my brand of writing style, I have no doubt you will enjoy the newest in my line of “Sh*t” books. (not about poop, in case you were wondering)

Anyway, I have been quite busy. The Colorado winter was long and cold this year. In March, we had an enormous amount of snow. When you are retired, you naturally spend more time at home. Now, I don’t mind this, being a homebody, but I do like to get out and walk. Not bloody likely with 2 feet of snow and more coming. So we traded snowballs for cactus.

Colorado in March
Arizona in June

I had been feeling anxious and restless throughout the early months of the year. You could blame it on the snow and cold, or blame it on the viral insanity. I suppose those things are true, but it was more than that. I felt an urgency to leave Colorado. My lovely, beautiful, 5-year-old home in a great neighborhood with food and drink and shopping all within a 5 minute walk began to feel like a prison. I was constantly on edge with keeping up with maintenance, not that it needed it, but you have to keep things up to avoid bigger issues later on. My Sweetie was usually off working on a project, so I took care of things. I had plenty of entertainment at home, as well as an infinite amount of information to be found online. But something felt “off”. I longed for some fun. I longed for less responsibilities. I longed for warm weather. There is nothing quite as nice as a swimming pool, beach, patio, bistro or afternoon cocktail in the sunshine, providing it’s not too hot. We have friends that were already living in Arizona. We had made several visits in the past few years, but I wasn’t that excited about it at the time. Still in my stress-filled work coma and couldn’t appreciate the good points. But suddenly, it seemed the place to go.

In April, we took a road trip to Phoenix to see if we wanted to relocate. We took a few days and drove around, and decided that the Sun City/Sun City West area was the place to be. Plenty of things to do, shop, eat, drink and be merry – or my newfound slogan “getting jiggy in the desert with the old people”. We did some digging into the real estate, and a couple weeks later my Sweetie flew down for a couple of tours. He picked the house I hoped for, on a golf course with a beautiful view from 2 sides of the home. He made an offer and it was accepted. Then began the real work. If you have ever moved, you know that it is a great deal of work, stress, time and money. Thankfully, we were both retired and had the luxury of time. Add to that, the listing and selling of our then-current home. People traipsing through trying to get a good view of the home, but with moving boxes stacked everywhere. But it happened, and it afforded us the home, the move and a renewal of our new home.

We went from a 5 year-old home to one built in 1973. Very interesting. Now, I love mid-century modern so this was just right. A three-story home to a ranch, which is wonderful, to say the least. The prior owner had maintained the home quite well, and it has some very cool characteristics, which we are preserving. If you want to know anything about these homes, look up Del Webb and Sun City. Loads of storage, big windows and patio doors open to the outside – and get this – big clothes closets. Yes, really. Although, it was a little short on space for my shoes, but most places are short on space for my shoes. I believe I’ve written about them before.

It began as a beige box. Beige walls, ceiling, trim and carpet. We ripped out the carpet and installed laminate flooring. We painted everything white, except for accent walls in this happy yellow color, incidentally called “Smiley Face”. (The original Smiley Face was created in 1963 – a true mid-century modern icon.) It kind of makes me feel like I’m at a beach; my favorite place in the world. Talk about re-VITAL-isation.

Still a little unpacking and work to be done – waiting on library bookshelves

My anxiety and restlessness came from a serious need to release a lot of my responsibilities and learn to play and have fun. I wasn’t really having that in my Colorado life. Colorado is a beautiful state, and Denver is very vibrant, but it is all primarily oriented towards the outdoor life. Nothing wrong with that, I had done plenty of outdoorsy things. But, when you are older, you just aren’t feeling the need to pitch a tent, load/unload a camper, hike or any of that stuff. Not that older people CAN’T, but I and my Sweetie were true urbanites. If you know anything about Sun City/Sun City West, then you know it was designed for the over-55 crowd. I have seen more 80-somethings, who are healthy and active, in the 6 weeks I’ve been here than I ever have before. If you get bored here, you are probably dead. There are 8 rec centers, and probably as many golf courses (I’m not a golfer) in this city, with plenty to do at each. I’m loving the walking pool. Like a water-filled rat maze and you walk in a current. Great exercise in 100+ degree temps. And then there is Bell Road. If you can’t find a place to shop, eat, drink, get services of any kind, then you just haven’t left your house.

Have I said yet that I love it here? Let me count the ways. I feel as though I am beginning to blossom and really enjoy life. Sure, we’ve been very busy and tired from working on the house, but that is short-lived and will soon be done. And then it’s “party on, dudes”. I think it’s about time for an afternoon cocktail.

The Last Jedi

yoda-1091030_1920I haven’t blogged much lately. I’m not feeling inspired, but maybe it’s just because the energetic field is a bit choppy. I feel like the Last Jedi, getting bounced around in my starfighter, dodging torpedoes, and the nearest LZ is through a minefield. I think you get the idea, even if you aren’t a Star Wars fan.

I’m an Empath and I can’t shut it off. An Empath is a highly intuitive person who can sense and feel all the emotional and energetic frequency around them. An Empath can also be a Healer and naturally transmutes the frequency from low to high. Sort of a human vacuum cleaner. Normally, this is a good thing and has served me well through my life. The situation now is not normal and I’m bouncing around. I sleep 9-10 hours a night. I don’t need to go into any details about current events, but from an Empath’s view the energy goes from high to low with very little in-between. Before I go into that energy, I would like to explain how you can calm your now moment.

You must connect with your heart center. This is your solar plexus, the area where your heart and gut meet up. Think about times when you have had a “gut reaction”. Pay attention to this. If you are given information that causes an emotional reaction, pull that into your solar plexus.  How does it feel? Sick, uneasy, peaceful or happy? This is how you determine your “truth” about the information. Just because someone tells you something, does not mean it is true. You need to learn how to discern what is or isn’t true through your internal guidance system. You can also seek guidance from your spiritual connections: yours, directly to Spirit, not another person’s guidance to you. With current events running rampant with inconsistent information, you must learn to rely on yourself unless you want to get stuck in a quagmire of low energy that will wear you down.

The collective low energy vibrates in fear and anger. I have often said that “ignorance breeds fear”. Whether you want to or not, it is important to do a bit of research into what is making you afraid. Are you being told something and you are scared? Use your solar plexus to determine why you are afraid. Not dealing with fear can rupture into anger. You might project this upon someone who does not deserve your outburst. I sense a great deal of the fear-based energy when I am out in public. Part of transmuting the energy means I have to pull it through my physical body, and it moves through as anger. Yes, ick.

There is also a great deal of old grief in the collective. Many old patterns are rising to the surface to be healed. Much of this comes from the degraded feminine. Abuses, betrayals, submission, suppression, to name a few. To all the Men who are reading this article, I am not picking on you nor am I angry with you. If anything, I am angry for you because these patterns were established many centuries ago and you might not even know that this is happening. It’s the mission of both sides to unite in equal and loving ways. Children are also suffering from collective wounding. This is activating our Inner Child, and might be responsible for the many meltdowns we are witnessing in adults. So, yes, I am a little busy and a little tired. Rest assured, I am up to the task as I have much support from the spiritual realm.

The higher frequency in the collective is such that I have never felt before. It vibrates so pure, so bright, that the moment I tap into it all the yuck I have absorbed is dissipated. I am filled with a sense of peace and an absolute knowingness that everything is working out for the highest and best good and we have nothing to fear. The Universe has our backs and Divine Creator has everything under control. There is more energy in the high frequency range than there is in the low range, and it is gaining more ground each and every day. It only feels as though there is more low energy, simply because it is dense. Kind of like fog, which hangs close to the ground and blocks out the sun.

I hope this message helps you and maybe lifts your spirit a little higher. What happens when there is fog? There might be rain, or storms, but what comes after? A Rainbow, a beacon of light from Divine Creator to remind you that ALL IS WELL and you are never alone.

Thought For Today, October 18, 2020

The energy of this past week has been very powerful. Are you feeling it? Me: third-eye headache, hips hurting, allergies, and not sleeping well. Plus, I can feel the different energies coming down from above. Are you experiencing symptoms? Rest as you need to, eat what your body requires, drink lots of water and just go easy on yourself. These are all Ascension symptoms. You are not sick and you are not losing your mind.

Things are going to be crazy for awhile. It is important to stay centered within and holding as much higher Light as you can. You can do this through meditation, by envisioning pure white Light coming down into you from the Universe. If you don’t, you will make yourself fearful and slightly nutty from outside events.

The Matrix, the illusion we have been living in, is breaking apart. The mind control we have been fed is getting released from our physical bodies. If you think you have been living a good life, just wait, it’s going to get even better.

The Age of Aquarius, the new Golden Age, arrives on December 21st. This is our new beginning, the opportunity to create the life of our dreams. Hold the Light within you and envision a beautiful future.

Are You A Good Witch or A Bad Witch?

As we watch this crazy battle of good vs evil being played out across the world’s stage, it’s difficult to determine what is good or evil, truth or fiction, real or false. What you think is real might not be, due to the massive use of blue screen televising, AI, and edited footage.  Maybe, even I am a robot.  Since I am eating a cookie and drinking coffee as I type, I assure you I am not.  (Double chocolate chip, by the way.)

First of all, listen to your heart and your gut.  How does something you read or hear feel to you?  Does it feel positive and uplifting?  Is your gut calm?  All information has an energetic footprint, as does our body.  If something doesn’t resonate with you, you will feel off, maybe agitated or even ill.  Your heart and gut are very powerful discernment tools to help you determine what is best for you.  It is completely individual and unique.  My truth might not resonate with you, and your truth might not resonate with anyone else.  It is ALWAYS about HOW it makes YOU FEEL.

What if you’re not sure, or afraid of making a bad choice?  Remember, choices can be changed at any time.  If you are not sure about someone or something, look for consistencies.

Bad or evil people will promote fear messages – “if you don’t do X, you will suffer”.  Will often use demeaning or back-handed messages – “you really shouldn’t wear pencil skirts, and anyway, they send the wrong message”.  (A good friend will take the pencil skirt and hand you a much nicer style along with a real compliment.)  Bad people will come back at you, if you protest their message, with “I was only joking” or something similar.  Fear and demeaning messages are how they gain control of you, or program you into submission.  They will be consistent, and even relentless, eventually creating a low self-esteem belief system within you.  They rarely ever do anything for the greater good, even when it appears that way.  “I’m donating $XXX to this organization”, and if you investigate that organization you will find they are heavily invested in it or have some other way of benefitting from that.  Evil people hoard money and their sole purpose of getting it is from using other people to make it for them or as simple as cutting other family members out of wills and estates.

Where they fool you into thinking they are good, is through their subtle manipulations.  Always, always keep in mind that a person will tell you exactly WHO they are in the first moment you meet them.  If your first encounter makes you feel uncomfortable, uneasy, or even queasy, Do Not forget this.  If you don’t pay attention, and keep going back for more, you will be sucked into their power game.  It’s always about power and control.  The more evil they are, the more power behind the words.  “If you think it’s bad now, and you do XXX, it’s going to get a whole lot worse [for you]”.  Those seemingly subtle threats are REAL.

Okay, so now that I’ve frightened the sh*t out of you, I’ll move on to good people.

Good and Light people will be positive and supporting.  When you are around them, you feel calm and at ease.  If a good person has a bad day, or does something bad, it’s not very often and they will typically tell you they are sorry or that they are bad company that day.  Even if there are bad events happening, they will do or say something to lift your spirits.  Good people often do nice things for others.  They typically don’t hype the things they do.  They are sometimes the brunt of bad people’s messages or comments, so you need to look into their lives to find the positive actions.  Bad people hate good people so they love to tear them down and make them look bad to you.  Good people aren’t without their faults and might come across as overbearing.  It’s not because they want to control you, it’s that they want you to have a better life and will tell you how to do that.  Good people will work for their money, but they aren’t afraid of sharing it with others because they know they will always have what they need.

In either case, it is important to watch for consistent messages and behaviors.  With each repetition, check in with your heart and gut and evaluate your feelings.  Trust those feelings, not just what someone else tells you.

We are living through a massive spiritual battle right now and it is difficult to discern the truth, much less understand what is happening.  This battle has been foretold for centuries and it must play out to conclusion.  We are moving into a better place and the Light has already won.  We are watching a movie (consider viewing “The Matrix”) and feeling the need to stuff ourselves with popcorn to survive.  In some ways, I think that the Divine Creator is putting out Its own psy-ops (psychological operation) on the human collective.  The evil is going away, but we have to see it and hear it in all its very worst before we can fully accept how bad it is.  If we didn’t, and there was the slightest little doubt that “maybe some of them aren’t so bad”, the evil would continue to plague us and then we’d have to do this all over again.  I don’t know about you, but once around is too f*cking much for me.

Thought For Today, August 19, 2020

The amount of anger sweeping the planet is causing forest fires and buildings to explode. That is some serious releasing of old, stored energies.  Try not to get caught up in someone else’s projections upon you.  It’s not yours to heal.  Step back, stand strong in your Light and doing your own healing work.  Imagine what life will be like when the angry energy dissipates and is transmuted to Light.

This Explains It

And people look at me like I’m Big Bird, when I try to explain the “Great Awakening”.

I Can’t Believe What I Heard

good-1122969_1920
Image by Fathromi Ramdlon from Pixabay

I’m reposting this, because there is a lot of cognitive dissonance going on right now.  The important thing to remember is that your truth is that which resonates within you.  Does it make you feel good or does it make you feel bad?
********

Cognitive dissonance occurs when you suddenly hear completely conflicting information about a long-held belief.  It causes stress and anxiety, and can change your brain pathways to that which resemble someone with PTSD.

A good example of cognitive dissonance is someone who began smoking during the years that the Marlboro Man commercials were running.  Sexy, mysterious, the actor playing this role made smoking look cool and tough.  These ads were soon followed by Joe Camel.  Both depicted a habit that was thought to be completely acceptable.  And then. . .lung cancer became the new enemy.

Many smokers went into complete denial.  “That won’t happen to me.”  Some thought they should just cut back.  And there were others who probably thought “what the hell, I’m going to die someday, anyway” and increased their consumption.  These behaviors were maladaptive, in order to lessen the belief’s conflict.  Cognitive dissonance occurred when they encountered someone, or heard evidence of smoking-induced lung cancer.  Cortisol would flood the body and eventually contribute to chronic inflammation, the root cause of most diseases.

Cognitive dissonance can occur when a trusted source of information suddenly denounces everything they supported, or even removes evidence of such.  I believe we are in a time when such things are occurring.  So, how do you reconcile conflicting beliefs?

Avoidance can be helpful, but might be just putting your head in the sand.  Defiance, which may or may not get you into trouble.  Changing your belief, but you might want to perform due diligence of fact-checking both sets of beliefs.  But ultimately, it comes down to what do you feel in your gut.  Your gut is an extremely powerful sensory device.  You’ve had that sick feeling when you are around someone who makes you feel bad or is scary.  Trust that feeling.  Make time for meditation so you can tune into the Universe and ask for guidance.  Don’t worry if you don’t hear anything immediately.  The Universe will get the answer to you in multiple ways, even with a song playing over and over in your head.  When you feel inside that you have your truth, seek out like-minded individuals who will support you.

Just don’t make yourself sick over someone’s lies.

Sanity Is Within You

So many people are feeling out-of-sorts, stressed, angry, sad, and even slightly nutty.  We should all give ourselves a break considering the wild ride of the first half of 2020.  Messages of doom and gloom, inciting fear, added to conflicting information, comes rocketing at us from every direction.  You can’t help but feel a little bit insane, and begin to doubt yourself.

Stop that crazy train and take a good long look at your life.  Up until January, what has your life looked like?  Have you been in a career?  Are you able to support yourself?  Do you have a family?  Do you have a home and are you able to provide food and other necessities for yourself and your family?  If you answer yes to one or more of those questions, then you’ve have likely led a reasonably normal life.  Maybe your life is still like that, in spite of the outside world.  Seems pretty sane to me.

Then everything changed.  And you have talked about it with everyone.  Maybe differing opinions have entered your conversations.  Maybe discussions have been heated.  Maybe even you are not on speaking terms with some people.  Maybe words like “I don’t understand you” or “radical” have been tossed around.  And doubt is now roiling around in your gut like bad pastrami.

It’s not them, and it’s not YOU.

The planet has been building up a pile of sh*t for eons.  Every angry word, every incident of disrespect, every act of putting someone down, every moment of shame, blame and guilt, everything that is harmful to another, has been stuffed down and suppressed for our entire existence.  And like bad pastrami, it’s gotta come out.  (I know, disgusting analogy, but you can agree it’s effective.)  The time has come to . . . deal with our mess.

Just as you would if you had an upset tummy, you spend some time alone.  You rest, turn off the television or other noise, drink some tea, and maybe soothe yourself by soaking in a warm bathtub.  In other words, nurture yourself.

All that outside noise, is just that: NOISE.  Tune it out and stay out of the fray.  Don’t get sucked into a nonsensical battle with your nearest and dearest, because all of this is just temporary.

The world is going through a change, and the present insanity is a necessary part of the process.  How can something become better if you don’t clean out the bad plumbing?  It was destined to happen, and it will all be for the better, so the less you resist the easier it goes.

If you are the warrior type, then find a positive place where you take action.  If it is angry and fearful, that is not where you want to put your energy.  If you are the behind-the-scenes worker type, then put your energy into helping others.  If you are just trying to manage your life, then fill yourself up with the energy of Love.

What is the energy of Love?  Honoring yourself and your needs.  You are lovable and valuable.  You treat yourself as you want to be treated.  Loving yourself is not selfish – it is NECESSARY.  When you fill yourself with Love, you light up like a beacon.  People are drawn to your radiance, and it shines outward to everyone you come in contact with, thereby changing their frequency to that of Love.  What do you think would happen if everyone did this?  Think about that for a moment.  Pretty spectacular, huh?  The insanity, kinda like, disappears doesn’t it?

How ’bout we start right now and agree to fill ourselves with Love every single day.  I’m in.

Thought For Today – June 27th

Stay neutral.  Many people are stressed and snappy with all that is going on.  Don’t get sucked into their emotional turmoil.  Take a deep breath and let it roll off of you.  None of it is about you.
