So remember yesterday I woke up having had a dream (I dream about Martin Schulman — coincidence?) and found a new message on my blog? I wondered if I had the dream because her message was there waiting for me. I replied to the message and later noticed an email from her. She briefly mentioned her study interests and they coincided with my own, down to being a writer and fellow devotee of Sai Baba. She graciously sent me a pdf of a book she’s written about her awakening experiences. I love how the Universe arranges these meetings according to our vibrational resonance.

I dream about Martin Schulman — coincidence?

This morning I dreamed I was in a fascinating conversation with astrologer Martin Schulman, author of the Karmic Astrology series. I checked to see what I had of his on my blog and found thru links that his source website was inactive. I was bummed because it had such good info. I saw I had a comment from the night before on the post asking about Schulman. So did I dream about Schulman because someone had (as yet unbeknownst to me) asked me a question and was waiting expectantly for an answer, or is it coincidence and synchronicity or something else?

When visual clues fail, act as if it’s there

It’s disconcerting sometimes when typing in a program and my visual cues disappear. I can see the empty box where my icon is greyed out. So I remind myself I’ve done this many times before and even though I don’t see the icon there, I have faith that if I click the greyed out box I will have been correct. Our intuition is like that, we may get a hint of something but we have to move forward and have faith it’s the right move to allow the magic to unfold for us. We have to act as if it’s there because we know it’s there whether we can see it or not. Don’t be thrown off balance when all your visual clues disappear. That’s just your inner eye unfolding.

Friends are surprised I do Horizons on my own

Friends say they’re amazed that I do Horizons Magazine on my own when other local publications list staff and volunteers. The layout and design part of it is easy — time consuming but easy. The administrative part of it (billing for ads, maintaining corporate docs) also time consuming but easy. It’s in the chasing of the advertising dollars that the real work lies so I leave that to the other local publications. Horizons was never designed to create income. It pays for itself but my income is derived elsewhere. If I had staff selling ads, the magazine would be much bigger. Ten years ago — when I was very visible attending and working conferences — the magazine was 64 pages, half of them ads. Now it’s half that and I appreciate the smaller size. It’s less work. I’ve had many of the same advertisers and subscribers for 20+ years. Horizons is not for everyone, it’s a little offbeat, it attracts some deep thinkers, visionaries, workers on the inner planes, those on the leading edge of thought. I’m thrilled to have gotten to know so many of them through the years, even if it’s just through Facebook.  If you’re on FB, find me and say hi!

OUR MISSION STATEMENT

Established in 1992, Horizons Magazine is designed to inspire, educate and entertain those who are exploring the body/mind connection and seeking spiritual solutions to everyday life.

The point is to fill up your happy tank

A friend asked, “What’s the point of it all? If we’re going to just live and die, what’s the point of trying to achieve anything if it all turns to dust?The point is not achieving. The point is the emotional journey you take as you go this way and that. The point is to follow emotional happiness. That is also how you serve yourself and your fellow man. –:– When you are filled with happiness, you exude a nonphysical ‘good’ into the environment and anyone around you has access to thoughts and feelings of happiness, not unlike accessing good thoughts from a collective thought bank.
–:– Why bother to feel good ever if we’re going to eventually die?
–:– Because those thoughts and emotions build up and follow you from lifetime to lifetime, making easier and happier future lives. I cope with life by training myself to have an interest in things around me, looking for the fun to be had, looking for the helpers, looking for the silver lining, looking for someone to give a kind word to, by training my self talk to keep me motivated and uplifted. That is my contribution to emotional well being on planet Earth. Your being here matters, your being happy matters, the happiness of others matter. Never think it’s pointless. Become an emotional missionary in this lifetime and follow happiness, feel happiness, collect happy thoughts and feelings so you can remember happiness when things are not so happy. Fill up your happy tank to overflowing, that’s how you silently help your self and your community. In this lifetime and the next.

The morning of the white van stalking

945am a long white van with very dark windows drove driving slowly past my house then came back around twice, driving faster and blowing his horn. He’s got a luggage rack on top and the front seat windows have less tint. He went past me twice more heading east, once more heading west, horn blowing and looking toward my house, front window open. He must have turned south to go around the block. I wondered if maybe he was the one who called out my name at 4:44am on May 27th. I wasn’t going to report anything because it’s not against the law but the next day someone rang my neighbor’s doorbell at 5:30am. No one was there. From my office, I saw the neighbor’s front lights go on. I had not heard a car. When his lights went on, I’d been talking to my cat, who was sitting on the perch outside the office window, trying to come in. Whoever it was parked elsewhere and in the dark behind my hedge I saw nothing.  My neighbor told me about it the next day and I told him my incident. He is going to make a police report. He thinks he knows who it might be in both our cases. Knowing the story about a former friend of his, I do not disagree. He’d been helping a friend who he later cut off for being dishonest. The guy began stalking, calling and hanging up repeatedly, calling neighbors, me, his minister and other associates and slandering him.  He’s begun the calls again and now this. it might be related. We’ll see. or not. I’m not worried, I don’t attract people who want to do me physical harm. May it ever be so.

It was not unlike the Kia Sedona here

A friend asked how do I cope

A friend asked me, “with all that’s going on, how do you cope?” I cope with life by training myself to have an interest in things around me, and by always looking for the helpers, looking for the silver lining, looking for someone to give a kind word to, and by training my self talk to keep me motivated and uplifted. Not always easy to do but, like anything else, it works when I work it.
