If we don’t know how a situation will come together, and even if things appear not to be working in our favor, God and The Universe are at work. And good things are happening in ways that we can’t even see, and in ways we had not originally planned on. If we can remain open-minded and keep looking for the good, we will be able to see these divine interventions appear in our world much sooner.
If we can trust the process, and act accordingly, the situation often plays out even better than we originally planned on, and hoped for. This is just part of remembering that the Universe is with us and working for us all the time.
If we can remember this when going into meditation and let go of having to know how things will work out, we will have better focus and deeper meditations. If we can remember this as we walk through life, our life will be more enjoyable and we will see situations magically coming together more.
When I hear the Om vibration it means I am in tune. My mind has slowed down. I am a part of everything. And nothing can go wrong.
When I hear the Om vibration it means I no longer have to search. I am in the place to be right now. I must know and remember this.
When I hear this wonderful sound, I now have the answer. Even if it does not feel like it, I am on track once again.
At times it simply means to pay attention. Othertimes it means that this is the answer, especially when I have been searching and it appears with a thought that I may have otherwise discarded.
When I hear this sound it means I should no longer have fear. I am moving into oneness. I should keep good thoughts of a world most do not know exists.
Hearing this melody means God and The Universe is with me, along with my teacher and my teachings. I am blessed beyond comprehension. As I continue to pay attention it will only get better.
As I tune in to this wonderful voice I am awakening in the dream, to my real state. I am peace. I am love. I am happiness. All is accomplished. Anything else is simply extra wonder. I will see the magic of the Universe as I play my part and watch it unfold.
When I hear this universal vibration this is the end of worry, the begining of life beyond my dreams, the result of my meditations. This is life anew. I must move with it. Live by it. Cultivate it.
I just got married a few weeks ago. It was a somewhat of a big wedding, and a big deal in my life. By the way, this is not my first marriage. As a matter of fact, it is not my second marriage. This is my fourth marriage. I have heard it said that the fourth is the charm! What? You haven’t heard that one? LOL. Having said that, I must say that everyone says that Kelly and I seem to belong together. They also talk about how we look at one another, and they rave about how wonderful she is. People also tell me that I deserve to be happy, and I say, “perhaps I have truly figured it out now.” Let’s hope so lol.
The wedding was to be outside in the courtyard of the Baronette Hotel, and the reception to be in the ballroom connected. The day was starting out cloudy with a slight chance of rain. I soon found myself thinking about a story my grandmother told me years ago about a man who was reported to be not the nicest man in the world.
This man had done a lot of misdeeds, and his loving family worried about his fate in terms of God and Heaven. On his dying bed he told his family that God told him that if it was a sunny day on the day of his death, that following day, that meant that he will be forgiven and make it to Heaven. That day was predicted to be a very stormy day, just like the previous day, and the family was quite sad. But to everyone’s surprise, not only was the forecast wrong about the terrible storm expected, but it became the brightest sunny day. My grandmother said, “That was God!”
I wondered if that would be the case with our wedding. Would God step in and make it a sunny day? It was gloomy that morning and I was hoping that there would not be rain on our outdoor wedding and our guests. I thought about the story Gee Gee (my grandmother) told me about the dying man. I thought to God and the Universe that it would be nice if it was sunny for our wedding. Then I wondered if I was tripping and being superstitious, thinking that story was perhaps told to me way back then for my fourth wedding day experience.
When the wedding started and we were at the hotel in the courtyard, it was gloomy but at least it was not raining. But it looked like it would at any minute. I said to the minister who was marrying us “at least it is not raining.” She said, “even if it does, we will continue the ceremony in the rain.”
As the ceremony began, I was thankful that the rain did seem to be holding off, though it was quite gloomy as I stood at the altar waiting on my beautiful bride. As Kelly walked out and began to come down the aisle, suddenly the sun came out shining down upon us. I was surprised thinking ” Wow! God is with us.” Even more to my surprise, after the wedding, person after person talked about how the sun came out just as we stood together, They all said that it was God shinning on us. My good friend Kevin Ransome’s comment was the most memorable when I saw him the next day. He talked about how gloomy it started out and how cold he was sitting in the courtyard. Kevin then said, “as soon as Kelly came out, the sun came out and started beaming! And I instantly got warm!” Then he said, “That was God!” I thought to myself “I was not tripping at all. It happened just like in the story. That Was God!”
So many people told us what a great time and how much fun they had at our wedding and reception. Some said it was the best time they ever had at a wedding. Others thanked us for a great date night. Others said they were inspired by us, our love, and the love they felt in the place. Once again I am convinced all of that was God. Because these were all the things we had hoped for and more on our special day.
I apologize to anyone who wanted to be there that we could not invite. There were so many people I personally wanted to invite, and I kept being reminded by Kelly and the wedding planner that the venue only allowed for a certain amount of people. And I have a large family. To all our people who were there and were not there. We love you.
I am sitting here in my positive place. I know this for several reasons. It just dawned on me that I hear the inner sound roaring. The inner sound is the OM vibration. When I hear it, I feel so good. The great masters will tell you that you can hear the Universal vibration when you are in touch. I have found that you can hear it when you have somehow slipped into the eternal place. During such times, all worries have gone. The outside world is not as important, and all of the sudden there is a ringing or humming in the silence.
I am sitting here in my positive place. I know this for several reasons. While sitting here I can barely feel my body. It’s like the rest of the world has gone away. I was thinking about what it’s like being on the beam, while reading poetry and remembering beautiful times. And then, wow no more worries! I guess I got lost in the moment. What can I say. I litterally feel like I am floating as I sit on my wonderful couch.
I am sitting here in my postitve place. I know this for several reasons. I am reading, writing, reflecting, with no thoughts of accomplishing, not knocking accomplishing, but right now there are no concerns. I feel like there is no other place, yet I am at peace with all places. How can this be? I feel like I am one with the grass, one with the trees, one with the meadow, and all will be ok. There is no need to prove, no need to act, not in this moment, and it feels like forever. I am so alive, here in my thoughts, I can travel any place in my mind. I feel so good.
I am sitting here in my positive place, realizing that soon I will have to physically leave where I am and get up. My only thought is that I must take this place with me and carry it where ever I go. I must walk in peace. I must walk in love. I must take more time to sit in silence and know all is well.
I had just woke up from my dream excited, as I lay there not yet able to walk again, but looking forward to walking in the near future. I lay there happy and enthused about my businesses and life, even though I was struggling to keep my two businesses going without me being there physically. I was thankful to have the chance to live the best life ever. I could truly say I was happy to still be here as Craig with my two broken ankles and all.
I was 56 years old (still am) and on the mend from an accident and injury, and just about to learn how to walk again, still in a wheel chair. It was truly blowing my mind that I was going to choose to be happy in this particular situation. I was asking myself, “Why choose this life and situation, when the others are so great without that level of challenge?” I was half asleep and half awake, coming out of the most interesting dream.
(In Henry Ford Hospital West Bloomfield June 2, 2021)
In the dream I was one of several young people marveling at the realization that we could time travel and choose who ever we wanted to be, at whatever point in life we choose and live from there. It was a feeling of being beyond limits and quite comforting. The posssibilities were vast. It felt totally real, and somewhat mind blowing at the same time. I was realizing that I had a choice of any of the lives I was viewing and I also had the choice of the life I was living as Craig here in this time space that I am in right now from whence I am writing.
All of these possible lives and experiences looked quite tempting, and was a part of who I was. Sort of like I had been living them all and now I had to chose only one to continue in. What I found quite fascinating was that I was leaning towards choosing to be Craig, and not just Craig, but me during one of the most challenging times in my life. And yet I had this opportunity to be in these other freer lives, and not have the challenge of being in pain and wondering if I would walk again, learning how to walk again, and having to rebuild my businesses.
But then in the midst of making my choice, it came to me in a flash, so keenly. “I have children and people who love and need me.” I could see the various ways I had to be there for them. I also had such great potential to live out the most incredible story and life. One in which I would be helping so many, and be totally into my Dharma, my passion, my proper place in life, and living it to the fullest. This is when I found myself waking up to this reality, totally excited, ready to jump into my new life! I was Craig once again, on this new journey ready to learn to walk again, and revitalize my business, with my two broken ankles, broken tibia and all!
(Halloween 2021 Me and my girlfriend Kelly, and my good friend Terrill. I was starting to walk again. Terrill was the Hulk, I was The Spirit, and Kelly was, An Athenian Goddess)
This morning I woke up thinking about the Coronavirus and life, and how the world is so uncertain and changing. I also thought about when my father asked me “What have you learned from this?” He was speaking in turns of this virus hitting the world by storm. I spoke about money mangagement and making sure there is always more than enough. I talked about changes in my business. I thought about sharing more love to the people in my world. I thought about doing things that I am now forced to do. Now I know that next time when the ideas come, to move on them early. Some of these changes I am making I thought of doing years ago. I’m sure it would have made life easier back then if I acted, and I would be on a different level now. Don’t get me wrong, I love my life and my accomplishments. Life has truly been wonderful thus far. But I do have some aspirations that I would love to move into. As I was thinking about all of this, it really hit me. I absolutely have to be the person I want to be in my heart of hearts unapologetically.
I decided to open a book, any book, and if the page was talking about doing this, then that is what I would do. I would no longer hold back in life, especially when it comes to teaching and sharing spirituality, metaphysics and meditatation. I was excited at the idea of truly becoming free, free to share without the fear of taking things too far for those who may not be approve of what I have to say.
The page I opened to was in a book that I had never read. It was leftover from when I used to own my spiritual bookstore. It was one of many. It was a book on Tarot. The funny thing is, I don’t even get into tarot cards, but I said to myself “my answer will be on the page I open up to.”
It spoke about an old card called The Angel, or The Last Judgement. It represented an angel, or messenger, blowing a trumpet, and attached was a flag bearing a symbol of the aeon of the age of Osiris. It also spoke about the destruction of an old world and the begining of a new. This angel was the messenger who brought news of the new aeon, or era to earth. The paragraph ended talking about the importace of revealing.
As I read, it was like an out of body experience. And I could barely feel my body. This was my confirmation! How much more clear can you get than that? Unapologetically blowing a trumpet with the news, revealing. I thought to myself. This is what I was to do. Blow the trumpet loud! What are the odds I would open up a book that was talking about this? I decided there will be no more holding back. I will share. I will talk about dream interpretations, visions, meditations, and lessons, no longer wondering if it is too much. I will be me 100%. I will share through writings, poems, video, song, by what ever way it hits me at the time and let the chips fall where the may. Any way, today I share this by way of journaling so I can remember not to hold back on my expression.
