Do you remember the last time you held a seashell to your ear and heard the sound of waves seemingly coming from the shell? No matter how many times I do this, I am still fascinated by those mysterious sounds of waves coming from inside the shell. It’s magical!

As a child, I loved holding my grandmother’s painted conch shell to my ear and listening to the strange roaring sound. My grandmother told me it was the memory of the ocean still held inside the shell. At that time, I was amazed that I could be so far away from the ocean and still be able to hear waves in an empty seashell.

Much later, I learned the scientific explanation for this sound. It is the magnification of the noise that is already all around us, noise that we normally don’t even notice. It is called ambient noise. And the so-called “ocean” sounds differ depending on the size and shape of the shell you hold near your ear.

Of course the romantic and nostalgic idea that a seashell holds the memory of the ocean surf is far more romantic and preferable in my mind to the scientific explanation. However, I like to think that both are true… that not only does the shell amplify sound, but that it also carries within it a memory of sorts – the memory of its formation, its growth and the creature that inhabited it. Some people would call it the energy of the shell itself.

Our own personal objects can exude a certain kind of memory or unseen energy, especially those objects we use daily over the course of years and the ones that we are particularly fond of. And it is these very objects that become the treasures of those who succeed us, because they somehow sense our presence within those objects. If you think about it, you may remember some item from a parent, grandparent or friend that has special significance to you because it brings back many pleasant memories.

So, this week, as you handle your own personal belongings, give some thought to the energies and memories you are building into your favourite things.

 

 

 

 

 

“If you were to take a company of men and wished to put them under your immediate control as soon as possible, you would not drill them in the time-honored method used by armies. You would start them and stop them and start them and stop them and start them and stop them and start them and stop them and then you could change them anyway you wanted to.

“I (realizing this one way or the other) many, many years ago had a very recalcitrant crew. And I used to do things to these boys in the first few weeks that they were aboard on the basis of starting and stopping them. And they finally fell into line and would handle the ship the way they were supposed to. …

“Where you have an individual who is heading for succumb at a mad rate and he’s not going to change, you can put yourself, with relationship to him, in a position where he has no choice but to change. By doing what? By starting and stopping him.”

Your action for today is to reflect on whether you are trying to get even with someone. If you are, notice the cost to you.

Have an extraordinary day!

A Vision for The Golden Rule

Here is a wonderful Vision sent to us from Michele Boucher from Canada. Thank you, Michele!

Plain and simple. I NOW Live and Breathe in a World in which the Golden Rule is anchored into the Divine Hearts of each Man, Woman and Child who inhabit our most precious and bountiful Mother Earth. “As you do unto others, so you do upon yourselves.”

There is a benevolent and beneficent wind traversing the globe and it carries with it a most promising message of connection and peace. Each of us nourishes the Divine Matrix, raising the vibration of Gaia, thereby shifting All That Is into Heaven on Earth.

We Breathe a Collective Sigh of relief as our hearts simultaneously anchor the fifth dimension into the Cosmic Grid.

With Gratitude Unparalleled, So Be It and So It Is!
Michele
Canada

 

 

 

 

“Beingness and controlling things are the same thing, in essence. The real nice, smooth way to control anything is simply be it. And a person who cannot be something cannot control it. …

“You think some bully walks down the street and starts to sock you in the eye or something of the sort, that you should immediately counter with your—what? Your arms and hit the bully back. Well, that’s just about as silly as you can get. …

“What do you do? How do you keep a bully from beating you up? Well, you just walk around behind him and you say, ‘Gee, I really love that guy. I really love that guy, knck, knck, knck!’ That’s all. What’s he do? He says, ‘Hmm.’ No randomity.”
