Have you ever watched a late-night horror movie, only to need a great comedy to shake off the willies right after?
Scientifically speaking, you intuitively found a natural way to raise your vibration from one of fear and dread to one of laughter and love!
Today I feel the need to write a Perfectly Positive Post to follow one I published yesterday that dealt with a negative issue. (Not to mention the fact that my writing about that subject yesterday drew a peculiar experience into my reality…hmmmm)
If you took two minutes to watch this funny video yesterday , then you’ll understand me when I say that I accidentally put some Tobasco into my pie! Yucky!

Zen! (The Fine Art of Doing the Right Thing at the Right Time and Being Present to that Now!)
Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go “Govern” (control) my own “Ment” (mind) by practicing some Zen-O-Tonic Now Time!
Aren’t you just sick and tired of others doing your job? Yes, it’s your job to control your own mind, by thinking for yourself. (the cynic in me would say to hurry up and think for yourself before it’s illegal.)
Did you know the word government literally means “mind control?” (Govern- control and ment- mind). It’s no secret that the most sure-fire way to control any person, group, or society is through fear. But don’t we all know fear fuels more fear, or even worse… it helps to create very real, physical manifestations in an unwanted reality.
I recently caused a healthy dose of “agreeing to disagree” on my FB wall by posting the picture above with statistics about the relativity of risks we face daily. If I had it to do all over again, I would’ve edited it to read “Healthcare” instead of “Obamacare.” The point I was trying to make was that the media does a bang-up job of sensationalizing any and all negative occurances in society until we find ourselves trembling at the very thought of this happening in our “backyard.” I would bet the national debt that the true stats on good vs evil in this nation, world, universe goes something like this… 99% Good vs 1% Evil. The Media just “corners the market” on their shining ability to blow that all out of proportion.
In fact, “some” would even go so far as to say that the “ment govern” folks would perpetrate such heinous acts as a means to an end. How convenient that these “ment govern” people would strike such fear in the majority of the population that we “the free” (otherwise, extremely rational and intelligent people) would beg for our liberties to be taken away. Years ago, I watched a few videos regarding the “crazy” conspiracy theories of the possibilies behind major national and world events and it caused me to “Rasa” my “Tabula!”
In other words, I questioned everything and came to the conclusion that it might be time to erase everything I ever thought I knew and start completely over. Since I subscribe to the Micro/Macro thinking I allowed myself to believe that if an indiviual could committ a heinous crime, then a whole government or agency could clearly be guilty of the same. Yep, I’m a believer in a long history of False Flag operation operations all over the world, perpetrated by all countries, at one time or another.
Well, two beautiful, intelligent and caring friends started going back and forth about the accuracy of the statistics.
In every way I can conceive,
People die from Living.
And in my heart I must believe,
The mind can be forgiving.
But these events, extrememly Rare-
Don’t really happen often.
For most of LIFE is Wonderful,
And won’t land you in the coffin.
I have so much to say about the recent events in Connecticut- I could speak to this issue until Infinity!
My 6-year-old son, Ben wrote this note the day before he died. I was a school teacher where he attended school and he usually hung out in my room at the end of the day. On this day, he rushed in to find my room empty (I was in another teacher’s classroom), but chose to leave the sweet note before heading off to find his dad in the carpool line. I found the note and tucked it away in my organizer.
Flash forward to a few days later after the car accident that would change my life forever. Surrounded by family and friends, I reached for something out of my organizer and the note jumped out at me!
I share this personal story (purposely leaving out a zillion details), to make my point that events such as this, however painful, and unfathomable, are RANDOM!
In the same way, the events in Connecticut are too! RANDOM! A favorite author of mine posted on her FB page that it “seems that the world is crazy- with recent events in Norway, China, Colorado… etc..” Let’s educate ourselves and get about 7 billion things straight… Considering the world’s population, the acts of violence (tragedy in any form) are RANDOM and the acts of Kindness and Love are RAMPANT, occurring every second!
In the world of Competitive Media you won’t hear about those “boring” happy stories because the media can’t muster up enough creativity to monetize Good News!
I dare say that guns, knives, poison, etc…. don’t kill people. Thoughts kill people. Yes, I said it. Plain and simple. The very anxiety, fear and hate that’s being splashed and smeared across my FB newstream is from the same ocean the killer bathed in for years. It’s like the “frog in boiling water” analogy.
Remember, if you throw a frog in boiling water he jumps out immediately, but if you place him in warm water and slowly turn up the heat, he’ll acclimate to the higher temp and won’t even know what killed him!
Is our society acclimatizing to a climate of fear, letting things go unchecked? Are we raising our children to believe in a “culture of death?” Whatever happened to our “culture of LIFE?” It’s there IF we choose to seek it out. Some people have to SEE it to believe it. Others, have learned that Believing is Seeing! Doesn’t Jesus say, “Blessed are they who believe who’ve not yet seen?” As we pray for those mourning, can we refrain from seeing them as they are- “weeping and mourning in this valley of death?” OR, even better, can we just use our imaginations to SEE them on the other side of this- smiling, laughing, living, LOVING and letting go, while bathed in an Infinite Peace that surpasses all human understanding. Can we even send Light & Love to the gunman and his family?
Most of all, should we shield our children from ALL the nitty-gritty details? I mean really now, where do you stop if you make it your goal in life to warn your children of all the horrible “What If’s”. What kind of life might the gunman have experienced if he’d been raised with all the wonderful “What If’s” scenarios.
Maybe that’s why God gave us a remote control. Go straight to the happy channel that will lift you up, instead of stopping at all the others to whine about what’s wrong- this is a skill I’m still trying to perfect. I refuse to believe that we live in an “Evil World”, growing darker by the hour. God gave us FREE WILL to choose our thoughts and this could be a great opportunity to look around and list all the wonderful aspects of this world.
So, my question is this- Can we simultaneously spend a few moments sending Love and Light to ALL involved while letting go of the fear and anxiety surrounding the tragedy? In these days leading up to December 21, 2012, remember that our intentions and thoughts are magnified. This can be the “best of times”, or the “worst of times” but the Creator gave us the free will to choose. Most of all, what will you say to your children? Here’s what I say, “Yes, these things do happen… but they are extremely______________?” My girls fill in the blank with a resounding- “Rare!”
Now let’s all go talk about the infinitely wonderful things happening in this world today and make it our intentions to experience JOY!
I really hope you know just how much I Hate You!
(Dang Auto-Correct! What I really meant to say was, “I really hope you know just how much I love Hot Yoga!”)
Do you know how much Pain and Suffering you’ve caused me?!
(Dang Auto-Correct! That should’ve read, “Do you know how much I love Painting Surfers in the Caspian Sea?!”)
I wish you and all your little friends would go take a flying leap off the nearest Cell Phone Tower… all 50 of them!
(Dang Auto-Correct! I really meant to say, “I wish you and all your little friends would go take a Fluffy Heap of my newest silk towels to the pool… all 15 of them!”
Wait? Who are you anyway?
You are… that one planted seed of a Negative Thought that goes unchecked! The root of All evil. All crimes. All illnesses. All drama.
For all I care you can R.I.P. in a giant hole in Central America! Touche’
(Dang Auto-Correct! That should’ve read, “For all I care you can RIP a giant hole in the Captain America boxers you planned to return to Target.”
My Daddy was an incredible human being! He left this planet eight years ago, but I think of him constantly, especially around the Thanksgiving Holidays. He was very Will Rogers-esque in that he never met a man (or person) that he didn’t like. In fact, his idea of family was always, “The more, the merrier!” (This helps explain why we have a beloved, “informally adopted” brother in our clan.)
I’m intrigued by this most popular holiday, the one where we attempt to gather with close family and friends to confess and count our blessings. So I set out on a personal quest to discover how Some People choose to celebrate this Family Holiday. Well, after many hours on the road and too many interviews to count, this is what I’ve come to know…
I know Some People who gather everyone in, Family and Friends, no restrictions apply .
And- I know Some People who invite only the “Happily Married” Family and Friends. (Really, this is what I was told in one interview. They even quoted statistics that help them carve out the guest list… “50% of all marriages end in divorce…”)
I know Some People who welcome relatives (cousins) of ALL ages.
And- I know Some People who invite only those with children whose ages match up perfectly. (One person implied that this makes playtime much easier.)
I know Some People who call for Potluck, once the main Tom Turkey course has been established.
And- I know Some People who invite only the people who know the menu “routine.” (I think this is supposed to prevent any sort of food drama?)
Now, I find the results of these interviews rather disturbing… as in the very ideas disturb my peace of mind. I told my husband that I couldn’t understand how Some People could be this way. He promptly replied, “You don’t need to understand them. You just need to look away.” My children couldn’t imagine these choices, these traditions either. They actually cried at the very thought… real tears. Sensitive little humans that they are.
So, I guess I’ll sum up my findings by saying that-
I know Some People who say-
That just knowing Some People doesn’t make them Family.
Some People believe that Families are made up of people (blood and/or water) who want to be around you- at your house, their house, a party, even for the holidays. (or so I gathered in my interviews.)
As one participant put it, “Yes, of course blood is thicker than water, but when the blood turns to scabs, scabs turn to scars and scars turn to chronic negative thoughts… It’s time to turn to new skin, or possibly just New Kin.
Just Imagyne a world where more people could be like my dear old dad…
OR better yet-
Just Imagyne a world where we only devote our time and energy to those people who really enjoy our company.

The Rules for Dealing With the Elephant in the Room
1. Blindfold at least 5 people, have them reach out to identify the creature and be sure in fact, that it is an Elephant in the room!
2. Whatever you do, don’t beat it since it is not a dead horse. I repeat, IT IS NOT A DEAD HORSE!
3. Acknowledge Him/Her in a nice, peaceful manner and speak, thus forward in the most loving manner.
4. Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don’t be mean.
5. After the initial encounter, if the Elephant refuses to leave, MOVE to a different room.
6. Warning!!! Repeated encounters (and dialogue) with the same Elephant in the room can cause a Multiplying effect of Elephants, sometimes exponentially!!!
7. If the Elephant refuses to budge after the first encounter, do yourself (and everyone in the room) a favor. Repeat step 5.
