ROSEMARY’S EXPLORATION: Here’s the thing…

May 27, 2015 Leave a comment

Everyone is doing the best they can with the resources they have at any given moment.

This is my mantra. I remind myself of this often.

At first it was a bit difficult to embrace. I kept coming up with caveats, exclusions, reasons why this didn’t apply to someone or some situation. It never occurred to me that this also applied to ME – I was focused on forgiving others.

But the more I worked with this concept, the more I embraced it as a way to live, well, the more I came to believe that this is true for EVERYONE, including ME.

So what does it mean to totally and whole-heartedly embrace this idea? What resistance is showing up in you as I invite you to consider this?

Can you, as I did, come up with a list of exclusions to this, people that this couldn’t possibly apply to? Mass murderers? Abusers? That person who cut you off in traffic today or stole your parking place? Your parent? Your spouse? Your neighbor?

Think about this: do you think that any soul comes into this lifetime wanting to hurt other people as its purpose? What spirit wants to be the ‘bad guy’?

People look around at their options and choose one to act upon. You do this, too. Sometimes people are influenced by others to the point that their view is narrowed to only one option. You, from the outside, might see that they had lots of other choices. But, inside their situation, with the information that they had or the influence that they experienced, they did what they thought they must.

Look back over the decisions that you have made in your life. Do you tend to count up all the ‘mistakes’ you have made? Do you think of the ‘wrong decisions’ you have chosen?

What if I now say that, if you were to go back to that point in your timeline, you would make the same choice that you made then because of the information (resources) that you had available in that moment? If you went back knowing what you know now, you would be taking some extra resources with you, wouldn’t you? The knowledge that came from the feedback you received after that decision. BUT you didn’t have that information when you were making the choice you made.

Everyone is doing the best they can with the resources they have at any given moment.

Imagine how you might feel if you look at your ex-spouse, your boss, your friend, the person who cut you off in traffic through the lens of this mantra. There is probably a story behind each situation that you don’t know and that story defines the resources that that other person had available to them at the time.

Now look at yourself and your life. Your story defined the possibilities for action that you were able to see at any given moment. It might never have occurred to you that you had more options because you believed that if you chose to do X, then Y would happen. Immediately after you made the choice, you might have received more information but you didn’t have it before you made the choice. Can you forgive yourself now?

Here’s the thing.

You are always at choice. So is everyone else. And you can only choose among the options that you see before you, based on the information that you have, or think your have, in your reality at the time you make the choice.

Everyone is doing the best they can with the resources they have at any given moment, including you.

Learn and grow and keep making choices. Also, keep looking for possibilities that maybe you can’t see yet but someone else can help you to see. Increase your resources and you increase your choices.

You are, and always have been, doing the best you could.

ROSEMARY’S INSPIRATION: Here’s the Thing!

Memorial Day, memories, honoring the ancestors. Rosemary’s inspiration is her mantra for life! This is the most important thing to remember! And it applies to ourselves, everyone around us and yes, all those ancestors too!

Happy New Moon in Taurus! Celebrate with Haiku

May 19, 2015 Leave a comment

For this New Moon I’ve written three Haiku. The bull does like his beauty, both light and dark!

Moon Death

Mourn the losses deep;
Moon death carries them down.
But wait; look west. Birth!

Moon Drift

Celebrate the gain.
Moon drift carries her beyond.
Light breaks to the west!

Moon Dark

Rest through the night deep;
No struggle, no pain – Moon dark.
Light returns – renewed!

And here, from Rosemary, is all the New Moon information for the next couple of weeks, as we move into this waxing moon phase:

“When the Moon is dark it is inviting you to shine your light into the world. Be the beacon of light that is needed to show the way. The light is within you.”

 The Sun and Moon joined up in Taurus for the New Moon at 12:13 am Eastern Time on Monday, May 18, 2015 so we get a double dose of that healthy, earthy beauty-loving Taurus energy. When these two luminaries come together we get the personal energy of the Sun, representing who we are, magnified by the energy of how we feel – the Moon.

Are you ready to claim who you really are? To claim how you really feel? This is a great time to shed the shells! Be YOU, fully YOU, just the way you are, which is PERFECT!

And if there is anything that you are looking to bring into your life, send out your request now, during the energy of the New Moon. Stay in gratitude even when you don’t control the timetable. Let your gratitude grow while the Moon grows from dark to Full in the sky.

This is also the start of a 3-week period where Planet Mercury goes retrograde – it appears to travel backward in the sky. Mercury represents communications so be careful. Check those emails and tweets before you send them. Read and re-read contracts or, better yet, wait until after June 11 to sign them. Others will be distracted, too, so pay close attention to your driving and drive defensively.

This, too, shall pass. Creative people often find Mercury Retrograde periods to be inspiring so take some time to go inside and explore.

I am so excited about the difference that essential oils are making in our lives! I recently twisted my knee and went right to the oils for relief. Swelling was minimal and I attribute that to swift and frequent application of the oils. We’re still filling the diffuser with a combination that makes dealing with allergies a thing of the past, even though the pollen is so heavy that we’re getting the car washed all the time. If you are living a more natural life then essential oils are the way to go. We’ve replaced our medicine chest with oils and I believe the plants are where our healing energies can be found. Would you like to join me online to learn more about what we’re doing with essential oils? Send me an email and I’ll let you know:rosemary@TheScientific Mystic.com

Are you a spiritually-grounded Conscious Entrepreneur who is not yet making the income that you would like to make? We see a lot of people like that who would like to know how to be spiritual, of service to others and profitable at the same time. And we want to help. So we’re offering a FREE teleseminar on Thursday, May 21 at 8:00 pm Eastern Daylight Time/5:00 pm Pacific. We’ll be sharing ‘3 Keys to Being Spiritual and Profitable.’ We’ll send you the call-in information so mark your calendar and register below!

Set your intention today for the energy of the New Moon to assist you in bringing you into the life of your dreams!

The Hubble picture today celebrates the 25th anniversary of this magnificent “light gatherer.” Here’s more info:

APRIL 23, 2015: NASA and ESA are celebrating the Hubble Space Telescope’s silver anniversary of 25 years in space by unveiling some of nature’s own fireworks — a giant cluster of about 3,000 stars called Westerlund 2. The cluster resides inside a vibrant stellar breeding ground known as Gum 29, located 20,000 light-years away in the constellation Carina. The comparatively young, 2-million-year-old star cluster contains some of our galaxy’s hottest, brightest, and most massive stars. The largest stars are unleashing a torrent of ultraviolet light and hurricane-force winds that etch away the enveloping hydrogen gas cloud. This creates a fantasy celestial landscape of pillars, ridges, and valleys.

May 20 FREE Essential Oils Class, Severna Park, MD LINK

May 21 – 3 Keys to Being Spiritual and Profitable, a webinar at 8:00 pm Eastern LINK

June 1-2 – Red Elephant Flight Club, Orlando, FL

Enjoy the energy of this Taurus New Moon. And be aware of the Mercury retrograde period!

A New Poem from “Rhythms and Cycles” – Barns

April 29, 2015 Leave a comment

I have been neglecting this blog and you, dear readers. It seems Spring is blooming in so many directions, with out-of-control growth, that some ground needs to lie fallow for now.

But this past Sunday evening an event triggered lots of “stuff” for me, including today’s poem from my collection I’ve called “Rhythms and Cycles.” I’ve published many here before but none quite so personal as today’s.

The barn on my family’s farm caught fire and was destroyed together with several other smaller buildings and all the contents. Blessedly no one was injured and the homes are both safe and sound. The wind was from the north blowing all the burning debris across the highway and into fields to be safely snuffed out.

Here is a picture of the farm as I remember it from my younger days:

Farm Home

 

And my poem:

Barns

Many red, some white, even
Orange and green,
Old barns paint Wisconsin’s
Countryside.

Norwegians, Germans, even
Some Brits
Raised barns tall, building
Statewide.

Turn of the century came
Famers, cattle and plows.
Indigenous woods and grass lost to
The immigrant tide.

And the tide sweeps along as
Farm patterns change.
Old barns don’t serve now, their time
Set-aside.

They tumble and fall, rot from the core;
Old barns neglected even catch fire,
While those who remember sense something
Has died.

New Moon News

March 20, 2015 Leave a comment

Greetings Readers! Here’s the Celestial Weather news from Rosemary:

Spring forward into the beauty of a new season! Of course, Mother Nature really is the one in charge as we prepare for a first-day-of-Spring snowfall. But the crocuses are starting to pop up so can daffodils be far behind?

If your energy has been off-kilter lately you can blame Pluto and Uranus. These two planets are squaring off to invite us to awaken and transform. And when you read the Moon News below you’ll see some other things going on in the heavens that can affect your moods and energy.

I’m excited about a lot of fun events coming up. Be sure to save April 25 for the Bazaar! And we’ll be attending the Annapolis Film Festival at the end of the month. Will you?

Welcome to all our new members of RosemarySpace! We’re happy you are here!

“Open your heart to yourself. Everything you need to know lives inside you. Do not apologize for being you. You are the unique one the world has been waiting for. Be who you really are.”

Solar Eclipse 7-11-2010Lots of celestial news for you! On Friday, March 20, we have THREE big events happening: 

There is a New Moon at 5:36 am Eastern Daylight Time (EDT). Then a Total Solar Eclipse at 5:45 am EDT. (People are flocking to the Faroe Islands to see the totality.) And the Vernal (Spring) Equinox occurs when the Sun moves into the sign of Aries at 6:45 pm EDT.

“Q. How many fairy godmothers does it take to change a light bulb? A. Into what?

…Now is a good time to believe in faeries and to acknowledge all tiny tickles: desires, wishes, imaginings, beliefs, seeds of ideas…” [from We’Moon 20215]

The Spring Equinox is the start of the astrological year and a time of new beginnings, new growth, the emergence of trees and flowers and even longer days. What new desires or wishes are showing up in your heart? NOW is the time to plant them as seeds and watch them grow as the Moon grows in the sky from the New Moon/Dark Moon to her fullness in 2 weeks.

Believe that the Universe is a generous and supportive place in which to live. I mean, do you really have a choice of living somewhere else? Think of the Universe as your Fairy Godmother, ready with her magic wand to grant your biggest wish. What would you ask for?

Now is the time to ask! The Moon is shadowing the Sun for the solar eclipse so that we receive pure Moon energy, loving, emotionally-supportive energy. Take a moment now to reach into your heart and decide what you really want, what really matters to you. Now ask for it and also ask that you be shown how to move toward the realization of that dream.

Dream – Ask – Act. That’s the process. Then be grateful for whatever the Universe brings you because it is in keeping with your highest good.

What topics would you like to explore? I am working on a class schedule for the coming months and would love to hear from you! Dreams? Dowsing for Decisions? Spiritual Technologies and Tools? Let me know! I offer classes online as well as in person in Maryland and elsewhere so we can make it happen even if you live far away.

This Spring I am extending the Hypnosis for Healers Class into Part 2. If you weren’t able to join us for Part 1 you can purchase the recordings and materials here [LINK] and then join us in person in Maryland for Part 2 [or get the recordings]. We’ll be doing a lot of practice with creating guided visualizations for specific purposes. If you work with clients, lead meditation, do any kind of visualization exercises, you’ll want to learn the techniques and tips in these classes!

SAVE THE DATE: SATURDAY, APRIL 25, 11:00 am – 3:00 pm

The Shop for Mom (& Yourself!) Bazaar is happening! We have many amazing vendors bringing their wares for you to explore so that you can get ready for Mothers’ Day or just have fun and shop for something YOU would like to have. Bring a friend and come for a visit. More details coming soon. Be sure to reserve the date on your calendar! [Benefits our spiritual study center but there is no cost to attend!]

Take advantage of all this Energy of New and start something BIG this Spring!

ROSEMARY’S EXPLORATION: Honor and Love Yourself!

March 13, 2015 Leave a comment

This is a time to honor yourself and to LOVE yourself! Most of our training is about loving others, caring for others, helping others. But I have come to see that this training can lead us to believe that serving others means denying our own needs, serving until we are depleted and forced to cry ‘uncle.’

This moonth is about loving yourself enough to have love and service energy to spare to give to others.

Lisa Nichols teaches about ‘serving from the saucer.’ She says that a teacup represents you and the saucer catches the overflow when you are filled up. Don’t serve others from the teacup, which you must keep filled if you want to be of use to others.

Instead, serve from the overflow in the saucer. When the saucer is empty, you must fill up the cup (you) until it overflows again. If you empty the cup, there is nothing to give to others.

This makes sense, doesn’t it?

I frequently hear clients struggling with trying to find balance between taking care of others – children, parents, spouse – and taking care of self. Sometimes they have to get sick to get a day off! I hope you hear Lisa Nichols’ idea as permission to fill up your cup before you have to get sick.

Love is a powerful energy. It is meant to be shared, to radiate outward. But, remember, that ‘All love flows from self-love.’ Until you really embrace that belief, you will give until you are depleted and then you cannot help either yourself or others.

Self-love is not the same as the selfish belief that others don’t matter. Self-love says, ‘I love myself enough to take care of myself so that I am able to take care of others.’

That spiel on the airplane about ‘put your own oxygen mask on first before you help someone else with theirs’ has real meaning. If you pass out from lack of oxygen there are 2 of you in trouble!

So during this time, ask yourself, ‘How can I best serve myself? What is my inner self needing/wanting? How can I give that to myself?’

Maybe it’s time to explore what is holding you back from having great joy in your life. Dissolve the blocks that keep you from manifesting magnificence. Let them go as the moon gets smaller in the sky.

Clear the way for the new energy that is wanting to come in at the next New Moon on Friday, March 20 at 5:36 am Eastern Daylight Time. This will be a special day – with a Total Solar Eclipse and the Sun moving into Aries – Spring Equinox!
