The Angels of 2014 - My "Teachers"
The hour glass of my life grows bottom heavy, making each year that passes more precious and bitter sweet than the last. Every grain of sand that spills is a milestone, an opportunity missed or seized. The top of the glass grows frighteningly empty but a closer look reveals its treasure. Gone is the sand... Gone are my precious years but in their place is the wisdom of each grain and each day. Stacked in invisible glory, marking my life far better than virgin sand, are the gritty lessons of this lifetime well lived. Silly old time, alone you're meaningless anyway. It's what we do with you that is the currency of eternity.
Yes my life is well lived not by luxury and privilege, but by Carpe Diem, self scrutiny and personal truth even when it leaves a harsh imprint. I've learned to love praise and criticism equally because within both is the wisdom that tops my hour glass and drives me. Those truths shows me what is good and not good, and gives me the experience to discern the "take away" from the "leave behind". Every grain of sand is time orchestrated by Angels and each moment is a mirror. After all what is "life" if we don't observe ourselves in every moment, striving for a better way, a better "me" , a better world for each other...
I thank my angels for this lifetime although, at times it has been rough. My greatest blessing is that self pity and despair never took up residence overly long. My heart wants to sing and my eyes want to twinkle and my legs want to dance. And even when earth bound circumstances lived are sometimes tragic and repulsive the "take away " is always so exquisite and tenderly beautiful. It is by Thy grace that I have learned to find beauty in the most horrific things and use that healing energy to source me....to forward rise. There lies the true meaning of my life and I hope a courageous legacy.
One does not accomplish this alone it takes great "teachers" sent by Spirit, orchestrated through Angels. As we connect and crisscross lifetimes in triumph and tragedy we are all each other's teachers. Weaving cords of serendipity that attach us to each other with lessons learned and unlearned, completed or repeated...I like to think of my teachers as my earthly Angels.
In 2014 ...I received amazing gifts from these people... my Earth Angels. My heart is filled with gratitude for all of you.
Ron, my colleague taught me the value of loyalty through is dependable nature in the midst of chaos.. Liz and Tom showed me you can call for " help" and that your sincere friends will answer, when you're awfully sick! Damaris taught me friendship grows down a winding road of wiped tears and shared laughter ,of frustration and nurturing, but it is always love that fertilizes it. George taught me friendship doesn't have to be loud but can flourish inside of a quiet dignity. Margaret taught me that time often gives false security in its lengthy connections and sometimes the strongest lifelines break and you have to be your own best friend because everything has a season. I now can be grateful for "the season" and let go. Kathryn in her death taught me that sometimes a legacy can be created with an army of solders that stretch across the ethers but brings us together here. I learned that a souls light work does not cease with the death of a human form. Steve taught me how to spy a wolf in sheep's clothing and that true discernment doesn't come from looking at another but at yourself. I now listen to my dashboard, if the check engine light is on I stop to refuel and never let anyone dim my light! I learned the importance of surrounding myself with affirming people. Al the Shaman taught me to travel without leaving my chair. I learned to find the mystic in the most unpredictable places and how to "see" beauty others miss. Annie with her cherubic sparkle was a looking glass where I found my own family healing through her parallel experience. Tim taught me how beautiful communication can be when two people "get" each other . And that I can "trust fall" into a mans strong arms and survive even if their "catch" breaks.... because through my disappointment emerges a more mature heart.... One that knows people are either enslaved or free but always basically good and that ...even the best men sometimes break promises. I learned the best promises kept are the ones we make to ourselves. Louann taught me transformation is possible with the power of intention as I watched her manifest life change in miraculous ways. Addie my beautiful flower child, gave me hope through the optimism of youth and taught me resiliency and trust and connected me with Spirit through Art....what an amazing gift!. Karen J brought laughter back to me with her beautiful raucous abandon and the wild light in her eyes. And sweet Kirsten taught me respect for animals as I have watched her dedicate her beautiful light work to saving countless furred ones. I was blessed to share Munay Ki with Thelma as she opened us to a new way , the beauty way of the world and taught me new found respect for the universe, Mother Earth and Father Sun. Gregg taught me geographical distance does not matter when a true spiritual connection exists. I learned the infrequency of shared moments does not lessen their significance. True friends pick up where they leave off regardless of time or distance. And beautiful Kaytee whose smile lights up the room has taught me patience, sometimes I swear I see her wings flutter...by listening to her stories of life I know miracles happen every day. Janet showed me how one souls death can link many in life through a common grief and that it brings healing and solace. I learned hearts that are alike find each other sometimes orchestrated by those no longer here. Gil taught me to feel the vibrations of the universe and to use its unifying pulse to calm my chaos. I am now more grounded. And Linda D taught me you can find beautiful souls in the most unexpected places, so always be on the look out. Joe taught me there is still magic in the world...through music but most of all through his kind yet weary heart. Because even though its a heart that's been sewn together like a well worn teddy bear... It still gives much more and loves harder than anyone I know! His bravery inspires me. And Carol my newest Angel thank you for teaching me that serendipity connects those of us who are meant to meet... so always ...believe.
Thank you my beautiful earthly "teachers" of 2014, for sharing and loving and walking with me for awhile. Whether through pain or joy I am grateful for the lessons you brought me. Whatever the circumstance of our crossing my "take away" has been more than my " leave behind". Each one of you has given me a perfectly wrapped gift that contributes to my ascension. I am such a lucky woman! You made it an awesome year of growth,!
I wish you all

This Blog is the story of the miracles, challenges and lessons of my life journey. Years ago when I hit a personal "rock bottom" my despair led me to seek answers and my quest for truth began. Amazing events propelled me on a spiritual journey of transformation.. Miraculously, through these experiences my life has become my teacher and my friend.... I hope my words connect us and allow us to walk together for a time as teacher and friend to each other. The most valuable thing we have during this human experience is our connection to love. The love in our soul for a higher power and others is the only thing that is real. I honor these connections through my writing. Theses words are my gift inspired through the heart of Spirit for you. I hope by sharing my journey it will enlighten, inspire and ease yours as it does mine >> ... Peace... Georgia Rose
