Living life through strength
Journeys of Life released Sunday their first honorary award, “Order of the Rising Phoenix” to Kate Silberberg, a warrior of spirit against cancer. The small business award is to commemorate the journey behind the store’s own struggles against the damaging fire it endured in Fall 2011 and its official recovery six months later in May.
Jean Haler, owner of Journeys of Life, made it extremely clear of why Kate deserves this inspiring award in newsletter.
Kate is at the Cancer Centers of America with her husband Brad where they have been since the beginning of the year. Kate traveled there in hopes of finding alternative treatments that would arrest her cancer. This has not been the case. Kate has shown amazing strength and faith as she continues to live out her days in Tulsa. Just like at The Mesa, Kate is teaching art classes to other residents. She talks with other terminal patients sharing her deep spiritual roots and shows all who come in contact with her how to stay in the moment. Kate has accepted that she is dying with dignity and grace. Because of her courage, deep spiritual convictions and her endless devotion to teaching others we give Kate Silberberg this award.
Kate and Brad Silberberg are founders of The Mesa Creative Arts Center and Mesa Healing Center located in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania. Native American teachings and Amethyst Bio-Mat sessions are just a couple of the unique highlights that this husband and wife team offers to the world.
In hopes to keep positive energy flowing to Kate and her gift to this world, I along with Journeys of Life ask you to take some time to send a card or letter to Kate. We all have risen from ashes at some point and needed words of encouragement to keep strong.
Kate Silberberg has moved into her next life this past Wednesday. Your thoughts and positive energy is still needed for her family and friends.
Well, the time has come to close another chapter. Technically, there are two more days with the book, but I thought it would be fitting to end here as that’s what’s on the cover and I did have a week delay in the first place.
The affirmation for today -
I forgive my false projections I have placed on the world.
Today I had much to forgive as I developed a migraine that lasted all day. The pain in my head was overbearing so I had to take it easy and remember to drink water and Celestial Seasonings Tension Tea to recuperate. Meanwhile, avoiding my laptop was my true challenge. I held back as long as I could, but duty calls so as a celebration here is a letter that I am dedicating to you.
I may or may not know you in real life but I wanted to tell you that I forgive you of any thoughts and actions. I also am forgiving all the ignorance that you possess. We all don’t know every single detail about this life we are living in and can only follow what truths we are absolutely sure of. I believe that love is that element that wraps us all in a strong bond. I hope you can feel the source too. Lets forgive the past for it does not matter now. The only thing that is certain is the here and now. Breathe in the value of living and I am sure you will feel so much better. Thank you for taking this journey with me and I hope more miracles come to you in many forms. You too have this power inside of you and I can’t wait to help the world with you by my side. For the highest good, as we will so mote it be.
So there, a great sacred journey thus far and I am so grateful to be able to share it with you. How did your day go? Got any weekend plans? Check out the Day 40 morning reflection vlog and let me know if My Inspiration Network can help you out. Thanks for reading.
Today’s mission is to feel grateful for all the wonderful new perceptions you have on the world. A new moon is upon us so with this energy you have a two week span to direct your energy and attention to starting new.
The affirmation for today -
I am grateful for my new perceptions of the world.
A smooth ride with the Universe came to me today and I was able to enjoy so many lil perks of the day. One of those perks was re-watching Kai Langer on The Ellen Show. It is amazing how someone so young could get all this attention. But it’s the same attention offered to many children. I did not think a 4-year-old could really know all those lyrics to Bruno Mars’s song: When I was Your Man.
Kai Langer is no different from other children. He has the typical judgement that innocence possesses before it is polluted by family, school and society. I am grateful to realize the potential in all children. They are in fact our future and deserve to develop in a more loving world. Some kids move along the path more quickly and pick up on their ego’s voice and fear earlier dictating their outlandish selfish behavior in life. Since many of us don’t witness each others’ lives as we age, we cannot truly know where the fear first settled. It takes a very observant and open being to know for sure why they are motivated to do the things they do. I can say I am one of those beings and my motivations change, but all stay under the big umbrella of pure greatness. (This is my clever way of not saying exactly what I mean because I don’t know who all is reading this post.)
Let this new moon energy help you to shift your perspective on the world. Be open with love and you shall see many things you haven’t thought of before. Not everyone is motivated by the same things you are and not everyone has had the same experiences you did. Empathy and intuition keeps us together as we interact with one another and our perceptions of the world will change as we change ourselves as well.
My miracle moments -
- Donuts – Finally after weeks of not having my favorite treat, my mother bought donuts!
- More snacks – My mom actually bought way more than just donuts. She went grocery shopping and revealed to me that she was tired of not having anything enjoyable anymore.
- Movie Time – I watched an interesting movie with Nicolas Cage in it. It Could Happen to You was on Movieplex and I loved the perspective of happiness displayed in the film. Money changes people or more likely to bring out the ego.
- New moon magic – Performed my knot magic for the new moon. The green string is sitting on my altar and I lit my wonderful Possibility candle. I was trying to hard to make the ritual work when it came to lighting the candle. I didn’t have the purpose to other than it was the new moon and it is a candle for possibilities so I simply want a whole bunch of possibilities to come to me for employment.
So there, a great sacred journey thus far and I am so grateful to be able to share it with you. How did your day go? Got any weekend plans? Check out the Day 39 morning reflection vlog and let me know if My Inspiration Network can help you out. Thanks for reading.
