How I Became A Channel + Bonus Book Chapter

Here is the story of How I Came to Be… a Channel, Healer, Mystic, Guide, Writer, Poet, Soul Seeker, Spirit-Singer, Angel, Speaker, Teacher, Compassionate One, Lover, Mother, Heart-Centered Happy-Maker, Divine Helper, Light-Giver, Hope-Bringer, Peace -Maker, Beloved One, and Miraculous Daughter of God – just to name a few!

This is a milestone for me. Not only is it my birthday this week, but it is the beginning and the ending of something significant. I have been doing this blog on this website for 5 years now, and have just been working diligently on a big change, including a new online platform, and a new way of being and doing my work. Before I share that, I’d like to share how all this came to be. After 5 years, I’ve shared bits and pieces, here and there, and if you go digging I’m sure you’ll find them!

But I thought it would be good for me, and for those who are interested and drawn, for me to share more about this process of transformation that I have been through, and its miraculous results! – and it will be a wonderful celebration for me to see how far I’ve come before I start the new!

How on earth am I going to do this in one post? Or two? Perhaps that is why I started a book. For now, I will just write and see what comes…

When I was little, my favourite song to sing was “You are My Sunshine”, and as my mother sang it to me, I then sang it to my children (though I changed the last words to “forever and a day!…”), and even now I sing it because it makes me happy. To make happy is an extraordinary gift, and one I have. I can take the most dismal situation and turn it into pure gold, treasure beyond measure, the heart as pure as snow. Laughter abounds, hearts are mended, and truth is what sings to me as a result. That is a miracle. And that has always been my gift to the world.

When I was ten or twelve, my mother would take me to other friends or relatives’ churches on occasion. We never committed to one, but I saw the impact that faith in something greater made. I felt the energy of spirit when people felt lifted. And I believed there was a Christ, or Jesus, but he didn’t live there in a building, however consecrated, he lived in me.  I always felt the emotion in my heart somewhere, that this was a special kind of love I could not find anywhere else. Yet it was always with me, everywhere I went, when I was alone, or with other people. The truth is, I was never alone.

I never became a religious person. I never saw myself that way. I saw myself as an independent thinker, a deep spiritual seeker, even at young age. I imagine (in my now imagination anyway!), I was quite a burgeoning philosopher, as in “philo-sophia” or “lover of wisdom”, and I loved my mother’s middle name, “Sophia” for that very reason, and so I gave that middle name to my daughter also.  There was something beautiful and mystical about it, about the unknown, or the “knowing that cannot be named”. Every name is just a symbol, a reminder of what lies behind it. There is always more!…

little blue diary

When I was a teen I became quite an actress, an expresser of truths, a mystical writer and puzzler of sorts. I would love to confound my teachers with my deep musings, and indeed I did! I never knew what I was going to write before I wrote it, not for creative writing anyway. It was like some mystical force went through me, my high mind, my deepest truth, my most profound learnings that came from somewhere else, and would land on the page unapologetically and without explanation. I was not into explaining as I do now, as a teacher, I was more a student who did not have the knowledge of where those ideas came from. I just “channelled” them, though I did not call it that. If I look back, I now see the seeds were sown long ago, the pictures I drew of a woman with angel’s wings, a medieval looking saint with love-filled eyes… all of these echoes of some other reality I tapped into. Never did this ability suddenly come or go away. It was always a part of me, and still is to this day.

In my twenties I “lost my way”, yet I didn’t. After being tremendously creative, I spent a long time as a “normal” working girl. I secretly hid my deep writings and would steal time to print them off of the big mainframe computer printer at work! It was my way of survival – to keep my soul alive and singing while I attended to “other things”. Work and family were most important and kept me going, as a young wife and mother. My soul expressions would have to wait – at least a little while. It wouldn’t be till over a decade later that any of it would come to fruition.

Hey, I'm sexy AND I can save the planet

After 9/11, a corporate takeover and a subsequent maternity leave, I finally escaped the “work force”, and let myself live more. I danced, I sang, I wrote, I spent time in theatre and as a professional actress in tv/film. It was a whirlwind and I loved it – until I went through a series of losses, including a significant death, which led me to doing A Course in Miracles, which in itself is a channelled material from the higher realms.  This deepened my inner life, and caused me to question more and more.

Then the recession hit in 2008, and my own inner seeking became heightened and acute. The world was changing. Something bigger than me was going on.  I knew I was here for more than just myself, or my own enjoyment or achievement. As much as I loved it all, it was fleeting, as everything can be in this life. I needed to return to my deeper roots, to the little girl who just knew herself without apology, and the teen who dug deep down into the mysteries of things and found sustenance there.

This time, I was reaching higher, and wanted to find my liberation, my life’s purpose and the ultimate plan for my life. I felt a deep inner call that I needed to change, to give back, and I needed to do it now!

In 2009 I went on a spiritual quest in Southampton, New York, for a screenwriting course at SUNY university. I wrote about this in Meeting Your Soul Companions. This awakened that part of me that “just knew” there was something more for me to do. I had become a partial channel through doing A Course in Miracles, and would often have written dialogues with the divine. This relieved some of the anxiety I was feeling, and directed my steps for the years ahead. These communions with my higher self/guides/angels were my “go-to” place and although I have learned other ways of reaching the inner planes through hypnosis and direct channelling, I still just “talk to” my angels, Jesus and guides as if they were right there. They are my “imaginary friends”, the ones children are told do not exist. Well, mine are still there, moving in my life, alerting me to any dangers, and pointing the way forward.

After my awakening, I had some highs and lows not knowing what to do with myself, and it was on the cusp of my 40th birthday, and that inner call and necessary change I referred to earlier had become a “DO or DIE” within me. Instead of explaining what that was, I am going to do something I’ve never done. I’m going to give you right here a chapter out of my unpublished Book of Miracles memoir, on the journey to New Orleans six years ago, and what happened to kick start this whole process…

What Is Channelling?

Many people ask me, What is Channelling? and what is the difference between a channel and a medium? etc. Here is my answer, followed by the answer that came to me through channelling…

Before I get into how my channelling gift developed and the recent events which led me here, let me attempt to define channelling with my own inner wisdom and experience, followed by my Divine channel’s answer to the question, beyond my own limited frame of reference.

What Is Channelling?

Krista’s Answer: 

Channelling is… an ability to convey God’s or Divine Beings’ or Spirit’s messages through someone who is both open and clear or pure of heart. Some people can channel deceased loved ones and other beings, that are not necessarily of the higher realms. I do not do this. I only channel beings of the highest realms, and those they bring forward, who are sometimes loved ones who have crossed over, or other people’s relatives. However, this is not my main purpose or gift. I associate mediums with those who primarily channel deceased loved ones; and there are good mediums like Theresa Caputo, of the TLC show, The Long Island Medium, who come from the white light of God, and not so good mediums who channel lower entities or “whatever comes through”. This can be quite dangerous and not recommended.

The purpose of my channelling is to uplift humanity and correct or heal misperceptions, give solid information or guidance, provide comfort, reassurance and encouragement, and channel healing at the deepest level, whether physical, emotional, mental or spiritual. It is always wise, loving and powerful. Anything less than that is either my own ego interfering (the conscious mind), or someone else’s from a lower realm, which I avoid.

I protect my channel by eating good vegetarian plant-based foods, limiting or eliminating alcohol or sugar, water fasting on occasion (sometimes weekly for a whole day, that’s 24 hours), prayer and meditation, forgiveness and surrender to a Higher Power. I also say the Lord’s Prayer and the Channelling prayer before I channel, calling on God, Jesus and the angels, and sometimes Archangels to clear myself, and the space I am working in. This clears my channel, heart and mind, and allows my body to become a pure vessel of light so that I can convey the wisdom coming through me, to help myself in my own life first, so that I can then be of service to others, including my family, friends, clients and those who find my work.

When I am prepared, I then go into a deep trance using my training in hypnosis, using a kind of inner guided visualization, I connect with the golden light, and when I feel the energies opening within (especially around my crown chakra at the top of my head), I begin to move or speak… I identify the voice (or collective voice) that comes through me as the Angels and other Divine Beings. Sometimes as part of the healing session, I bring my clients into trance with me, and we journey together, while I guide and convey the messages, following the directions given to me by my Divine helpers.  What comes through is what my client needs (not necessarily what they want to hear, but what they need to know or experience for their highest good in that moment). This may involve messages about your life, or journeying to the life between lives to experience yourself as a soul, meeting your guides and angels, or even experiencing past lives for healing and forgiveness. It is always to free you in the present so you can live your true life’s purpose now and be of greater service to humanity. 🙂

One quick side-note: a question some of you may have… Can anyone channel? I don’t think so – at least, not yet. I do believe it is a gift from God and a service that is directly related to my (and other’s) life’s purpose at this time.  It also requires a lot of dedication and commitment in order to do it well and accurately. However, everyone can receive messages from their guides and angels in some way (like inner knowing, nudges, signs and synchronicities or through angel cards like Doreen Virtue’s), and many already have good intuition or psychic abilities – but they may not have been developed to the extent of being a full channel, conveying the words, wisdom and divine energies of Heaven for the purpose of healing. That is not to say they are not gifted, or that their words of reassurance and love are not powerful – it’s just not the same as full channeling. You have to experience it to see the difference!

There! That’s my answer! Whew.

Now, let’s see what happens when I channel…

 

The Channelled Answer:

Audio – Listen here…

Transcription of channelled message:

“God’s Will be Done. God’s Will is nigh. All are coming into alignment with God’s Will. It is time. God is coming through all the channels of light that are available to Him at this time, for God’s Will is done through others, through you, through all who are open, and who are willing, who are able to convey the messages of Spirit through their channel of opening, for God’s Will is done through the mind, through the heart, through the soul. This opening comes through in the best ways for the individual. It is not always done though the spoken word, sometimes it comes through an idea, a thought, a process, a system; it comes in many ways, the inspiration. The channelling comes through many people, through many ways, many ways. This is one, this is one; and so it is, that this way helps those who are open to receive the Blessings that come. For God’s Will comes through this channel, and God’s Will comes through you who receive it, for you are a part of that, and you cannot be a channel without someone to receive and so you connect and become One.

The Oneness is what creates the channel, for it has a purpose, and without that purpose it has no sense and does make any sense. It must flow through to someone/something, it cannot be just for one, it must be for all, for all are benefiting from the use of the information, as well as the energy.  The energy flows through one to the other and back and forth, and spreads as well, it is something that cannot be contained, it goes out into the realms of spirit as well as the physical earth and all the inhabitants of that plane, and so everyone is lifted. It comes.  It does not happen through a linear sequence, it comes through the arterial? brain, it comes through a different witness, a process of creation. God’s Will comes through the energies of the system, the person, the creation, and it trickles out from there into all who are willing to receive it. They are willing but also not willing at the same time. Many channels are blocked at this time. We open them slowly through this process of awareness, and channelling is one way to open and to unblock those who are open to it, yet still resistant as well. This is one way we can reach all who need this work and who can relax and receive it. It does not require a lot of effort, but it does require an openness to receive it and a willingness to follow the guidance. For guidance does come through this method of creation.

God’s Will is for you to benefit, not to receive information that would not help you, and so the other ways that God reaches people are through many, many systems on earth, on this planet. There are many ways, many ways.  God’s Will is flowing through the internet, through many ways where people read information, many ways that people find to communicate with one another, even in the texting and communications that go back and forth between individuals, seemingly indifferent and not important and yet something occurs: there is a communication, a witness, a receiver, someone who is caring for the other and reaching out into the distance to pull them into a Oneness, a connection. God is working through every relationship on the planet at this time, and in this way, every relationship is a channel of the Divine. 

God’s Will comes through relationships as well. Even those who are challenged and are struggling with relationships, are being challenged to uplift themselves and connect at a higher level, to see the other as… a dream, as a witness, as a part of themselves, as well as an extension, an extension of God, for God is with all, all, All beings, whether they are aware of it or not. The channels are open in some and not in others. God Wills all channels be open, but this is not always possible in this short period of time. It will not always happen, for some can not do this alone, and so others who are more open and light come to help and to receive the information on their behalf and to spread this love. It is coming NOW through the various channels who have been prepared for this path. This path is for those who are walking with God, and who need to convey this information in order to be at peace, for their channels Are Who They Are, they cannot function without creating and extending the love that is within them, and that flows through them at this time; it will create tremendous anxiety to suppress the information, and it will also create depression for those who struggle with depression are simply closing down their channels and have not opened up to the light, and do not see the purpose of their lives.

.
This is a message from the ethereal realms for you to open up your channel to the light and find someone who can help you, for God will work with you through them, and you will become One in the process and receive all that God Wills for you, for you are a part of God and cannot go alone on this planet anymore. No, there is no room for loneliness, there must be joining, and channels are always communicating and connecting with and for others; they are never solitary, they are always for the benefit of all, including themselves, for God lifts them as well, and it is a healing process both to receive and to give the information.

There is more… there is more coming, and the more energy that comes, the more channels need to be open in order to receive the Blessings that come. This planet has been a dense one, and we ask that you lift yourselves a little higher through the various methods that Krista has outlined in her message, including her diet and her way of channelling and her way of overcoming resistance through forgiveness and through prayer.

It is important that people find a way to loosen and lighten themselves from their heavy loads and burdens, to find a counselling ear, to find someone who can listen, and to be at peace and to create connection. It is important at this time to find and open the channels of God, and to connect those who are struggling with the light. These are the light workers who have come to do this work, and that is why it is important at this time, for simply speaking from the human ego or voice is not always enough, and sometimes we need to speak a little stronger and clearer through an open channel, in order to have the information be received clearly without any human interference. For God’s Will is not always perceivable from the density in which you are now standing, and from which you speak in a normal day-to-day existence.

It is important to lift oneself through meditation, hypnosis and other methods that come through these channels. Listen and learn, learn and listen, find a way, find your way through the darkness to the light. For that is the only reason why the channels are here, to open up others, and to be at peace, for God is coming through all, and all are being asked to open at this time.

The density causes concern for many, the heaviness and the burdens of this world, the violence and the illnesses and the disease, dis-ease of mind, for God knows that all are struggling, and there is no reason to struggle anymore. There is a way through the darkness into the light. You are being called now to hold onto the light, and to witness the light, and to speak from the light.  If you are listening to this message, you are being asked to receive it in a way that calls you forth as well, for you are not simply receiving the information for your own benefit, you are also being asked to go forward as a being of light, and to begin to recognize yourself as a being of light, and not just a physical person. You are more than that. All is well. You are more than that! There is more, more for you to do in this world. The work of God is very complex and diverse, there are many, many, many parts to it, and you can play your part very well. You simply have to ask, and you will receive the answer through various methods. You may receive it within yourself  by simply going still and listening, you may also channelling through the methods that have been outlined, by seeking a channel or becoming one yourself. You are already a channel, you are simply not open yet. There are more people on the planet now who can do this work, and there is no reason not to find one who can help, for all you need to do is look and you will find one of your brothers or sisters who is a couple steps ahead on the path and who is calling you forward. Simply join in and become more aware of yourself and what is possible for you now. You will find more hope and more freedom this way. You will find more upliftment. You will find more possibility and more answers for all the things that concern you. There is no need to struggle, there is no need to fear or be in pain, for God is with you and has provided all that you need to hear and to receive the messages that are coming your way…

Please be at peace, and know that we are with you at all times. We love you. We send you Blessings. We send you forth into the light, into the love that this world so desperately needs. You are within the realm of Spirit when you speak, when you move in this way, when you receive the Voice, when you hear the Voice, and when you call forward your own voice to speak in this way. God will come through you as well if it is your will and His. If it is the Divine Will for you to be a channel it will be so, it is a Calling and you will know. It is simply a Calling, and all will come forward when they are ready, not everyone is ready at the same time, and so no one can be forced, no one can be told they must come. That is all. It is an invitation to come forward and to be at service and to be at peace, for you will be healed along with all who come into your contact. You will be healed along with them, and you will be joined with many, many people who seek on this path for freedom and enlightenment that all the planet so needs…

.

There is (more) coming! There is more coming for All, All on this planet at this time. Not one will be left behind, not one will be left out. There are messages, there are people and energies and interventions for all who are asking, for all who are seeking, for all who are calling forth to God, asking for help. They shall not be deterred, they shall not be left behind. Even those who shall die or move forward into the afterlife, will be answered, all will be answered in time. All, all receive what they can receive at the moment that they can. The world play that plays out is not always in/from God’s Hands, for God’s Will be done, but the human ego is very strong and plays its own will out in time. God’s Will is for all to wake up and to be happy, for all to realize their potential and to love one another as themselves, for God Wills that all find love within themselves through the channels of light that they are. Everyone is a channel of God but they are asleep, that is all. You, you are not asleep. You have woken, you are listening to the message. You have come this far, and you will continue on your path. Know that you are not alone, that you have done well, that you have taken a step forward, and that you are being called forth to do more work. There is more for you, and there is more for all. But those who are ready will receive more because they are ready. It is in wait for all who are coming towards God and being led Home…

That is all for now.”

Feeling God When You Feel So Alone

One of the downfalls of being a “spiritual” person (we are all spiritual – but that is a misnomer I sometimes give myself and others who are dedicated to the path of enlightenment/ truth/ spirituality/ authenticity/ love), is that I don’t often give myself permission to fail or fall.  Or is that perfectionism? My article on Spiritual Perfectionism deals with that topic. But here, I want to go a little deeper.

One of the most difficult things for me and perhaps others to do, and one of the things I do the best when I do it, is to be real and raw when something is bothering me. To tell the truth. When I do it I sometimes say too much and risk disapproval or abandonment. (The worst abandonment, though, is self-abandonment, and so given the opportunity I will choose the former). And when I don’t risk it, I bury it under a deep dark place because, after all, ‘I am the light’. The danger of knowing I am the light, and yet I feel darkness, is that I may pretend it is not there, hide it, or worse, give in to it. Alone, I may be tempted to believe that there is no hope, that no one hears me, and that my darkness is the truth about me. This is not the truth, and yet when I FEEL that way, it is the most challenging time to reach for light.

So what do I do when I feel so alone, struggling with something seemingly on my own, and yet not alone? Even surrounded at times by well-meaning family and loved ones, I can feel as if no one understands, I can feel judged or wounded, even if no one says anything against me – it is a thought I have about myself, that hasn’t yet found its way into the light to be healed. How can I find my way through that darkness and reach for the light within?

person and golden sun spiritual direction

 

One of my friends said something profoundly wise the other day as she listened with compassion – a rare gift. Knowing me as she does, that I am one to hide away when the going gets tough, she coaxed me out and provided a safe cushion to lean on while I unloaded myself. She said, “What if going within is not something we have to do by ourselves? What if going within just means going into your heart, and that means reaching out to other people, soul connection? Maybe connection isn’t just a solitary thing, maybe it can be done together because we are all connected?”

As a channel, I have learned, rather reluctantly because I have never been a good meditator, to go into a deep trance (hypnosis) and access my spiritual essence, and even talk to guides and angels. You would think, given this incredible gift, that I would never feel alone. “You can talk to Heaven? My God! Lucky you! I wish I had a direct line to God!” Well… I do. So do you, but I STILL feel alone. I don’t say this to give you no hope, I say this because the deeper message here, is that maybe God can’t be found by myself.

IMG_9956 (1)

Maybe God is a two-way street – or better yet, an intersection – or a busy square where many souls greet. Maybe God cannot be found locked away in a solitary cave or room (though some have found him there, too). Maybe God greets us most when we are in love, when we are forlorn and being picked up by a friend, when our husband hugs us after we feel broken and fragile, when we listen to children playing in the pool, walk barefoot on the dewy grass, or let the dog lick our face.

Maybe God is in the details. In the laughter and tears, in the rolling hills, in the depressing days of sadness where we feel so lost, and the miraculous times of healing when our hearts receive the love and hope we so desperately need from just the right person – or another unlikely place.  

Maybe love is not just in our pleas to God, but in the listening and receiving.

As a ‘spiritual person’ (I will say it only one more time, I promise), I can also be tempted to think that it is OK to give love, to extend myself beyond my own limits for others so they feel loved, but it is not OK for me to receive it, to need it, to want it, to grab for it, and even to lose it. It is not OK for me to fail or fall down. To feel alone. To feel small. It is not OK for me to be a human being who talks to angels, and sometimes would rather be with a flesh-and-bones friend whom I can see, touch and feel.

Maybe it’s OK to admit that God isn’t up there, all alone in his high cloud without me – maybe it’s OK to greet God right here, in my own world, no matter how lonely or messed up I feel. Maybe God is right here, right now, with me and you as we read and write these things, together. And in the illumination that comes from finally letting the dark cloud out of my head, and letting my heart reach out one more time – to God only knows who. Because in that moment of truth, that moment of connection, wisdom comes, and communion.

And isn’t that what God and love is all about?

How to Forgive Others

Sometimes “people” get the best of us (or so we think). The truth is, we are all suffering from the same dis-ease: being human!  Here is how I began to resolve this very human problem and achieve greater peace and clarity.

I had been tested lately, with an old pattern that caused me to be angry with myself and others. Just when I thought I was above all the madness, it hit me. And my irrational brain fired off chemicals of alarm and warfare. Things came out of my mouth that I knew were not true, and yet I felt they were. I would defend them to the death, even though I felt miserable saying them. I wallowed in self-pity and despair…
It took me days to figure this one out! How could I have been given so much insight and wisdom, and still suffer from this same problem? How long would it take to finally be rid of it and not feel such hate, such victimhood?

I was even angry at my angels for not saving me from this devastating problem. Although nothing on the outside was really wrong, on the inside I felt such pain and sorrow, and just wanted them to take it away and fix everything. Where was my miracle now? Now, I was really mad!

This was a very humbling dis-ease. It was a dis-ease of mind, that we all suffer from on occasion, some more than others. I couldn’t see the benefit to this kind of feeling, and yet I couldn’t quite let go of it either. I wanted revenge – not in some evil way, just a little punishment for the one who had offended or hurt me? These are not thoughts I am proud of, but I confess they were there. I wanted them to change and say they were sorry. I wanted them to come to me downcast and change their behaviour towards me. I wanted everything to change except me!

Does this sound familiar?

Be the change you want to see in the world. –  Gandhi

 

Then in my frustration and despair, I was growing impatient for a solution. But more than this, I wanted to understand everything so I wouldn’t repeat it. That was worth much more than a temporary fix or a ‘just make it go away’ attitude.

In my meditation I asked for the angels to help me. I was still angry, and I expressed all my feelings without holding back – I just let it all out, tears and all! Funny enough, there was a lot of grief under there – as many experts believe anger hides a deeper hurt, pain or sorrow. I saw this as a long-standing problem, not just a recent event. I wanted to resolve it at a deeper level, and be free of it. I cried out in pain, but what I was really asking for was love and clarity…

Then it came. Though I was doubtful in my present condition that it was possible, I listened for guidance and it came. I heard the still, small, voice, this time in the voice of Mary (Mother Mary), and Jesus, who guided me to go up a little higher, in my consciousness or imagination, and stand with them in heaven. This was unusual. Usually, we ask them to come down to us! Well, this time, I was being asked to climb a little higher in my consciousness, and imagine that I could be raised up to where they were standing.

I arrived in what they call the “interlife” where souls go between lives, where we see the bigger picture and learn our lessons. I could see why this was a good idea, given that I wanted clarity, and couldn’t see it at all from my limited perspective.  Instead of seeing with human eyes, they asked me to stand side by side with them (squeezing their hands) and looking out upon the world and my situation through their eyes and my newer perspective, and then to tell them what I saw.

Then it came to me. I saw that I was really being tested and challenged to overcome my anger, not just for myself, but for all of humanity.  My healing was healing everyone involved!  I no longer blamed myself for this problem, and saw that it was something that affected me and many, many more for generations, including those I had been angry at!  If I could overcome this anger and learn to forgive myself and them, I would be free, and in time, so would they. This was really a service, a difficult but very important service, and I was being guided and helped to make it through with flying colours.

All would be OK.

I also felt no anger while I was in that state of mind. I felt a peace and calm, with a sense of understanding and clarity.  I saw the purpose in everything. The situation and future were so much brighter than I had imagined! All things would improve if I could complete this one task. Forgive myself, forgive others, and let go of the anger. See it as a service, and remember the larger perspective. Then I would be patient, and not demand others change for me. I could see that it was me that was in the process of changing, being guided to a whole new way of thinking and being that would liberate both them and me.

This was good news!

For one who did not, in my limited smaller perspective, think it was possible to feel better about this, I did. The anger was gone from me. I didn’t need the other person to do anything to deserve this happiness for myself. I was forgiven. And I could enjoy happiness and peace of mind again. This was the lesson.

Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespassed against us. –  The Lord’s Prayer

And with this renewed sense of calm and inner purpose, I began to write about this very topic, and share my insights with those who could be helped by them. And I could begin to enjoy being my wise, loving self again. 🙂

And that was a miracle to me!

Meditation on Happiness

Recently I had to drive from Canada to the U.S. for over nine hours to meet with some Cincinnati women who were going to Tuscany with us in July. I determined to myself that this would be an adventure, and I would be happy, and do some good while I drive. This may seem like an impossible task but it isn’t!

Let’s compare two apples:

The first apple is worn and a little bruised. It has been sitting too long out on the counter, and bugs are starting to get to it. Everything “bugs” it and it begins to slowly deteriorate. No one wants to eat this apple. Once delicious, it is now fairly useless, but can still be composted.

The second apple is delicious. It has been refrigerated, and lovingly protected. It has been washed and handled carefully. The person who is handling it sees the apple as an extension of the universe and expresses gratitude for it, before taking a nice big bite out of it right to the core. It is fully used up and even the apple is happy to be used!

The first apple is like most people who drive on the highway for long distances or go to work in the morning, or do anything that is perceived to be tedious or difficult. They spend their time eying other drivers or complaining about delays. They may even get into accidents when they become careless or distressed, and swerve the wrong way. Or they may forget to feed themselves or stop for a break, and fall asleep at the wheel. Disaster can strike. This is not a happy scene.

So instead of starting off on a trek with gloom and doom, with the agony of how long it is going to take, or what is awaiting us on the other side, why don’t we begin our journey like the first apple? Eager to be of service, and delicately and lovingly prepared. With a heart of service, and a feeling of delight to be used. With this kind of care the apple stays in good shape so that it can be eaten at just the right time. And we are always at the right place at the right time, and available for miracles, for happiness, and for joy.

When I am driving I look to the left and the right. I say prayers for everyone, including myself. Let me be of service. And if there is a delay or an issue, or even an accident, I send angels, I surround it with love, including all the people regardless whose mistake it is – even if it is my own!

At the border I got delayed, because of what I do. The man seemed friendly and full of curiosity about me, and so one question led to another until I found myself sitting in a little office off to the side with some other people, wondering what I could say or do differently. Then I remembered something more powerful that cleared the way: God is sending me where I need to be. He has prepared me, taken care of everything, and now I am sitting here resting, and all these people are not in my way – they are here with me. We are all in the same boat. Might as well enjoy it.

Furthermore, the security officer who was making me do all of this was actually caring for me too. As I opened my mind to this possibility, I could hear that very man, who sounded much more authoritative to me in the beginning of my stay there, say to his associate, “All of these people are being helped.” I thought about that: “helped”. He was doing a service too. This softened my heart toward him and I breathed a sigh of relief. He was just doing his job. Before I could pause too long, the man at the counter announced:

“Krista, you are good to go!”

This is what it means to be happy, even when circumstances are not. We can transform ourselves, and even perceive others differently, affecting circumstances that we will never know, beyond our wildest dreams. We never know who or what our kindness and good thoughts will touch – even if unspoken. Even if we look like we are just sitting there resting, minding our own business. We can have thoughts of love.

Love saves the universe, and it saves time too. And it makes us happy, even when circumstances tell us not to be. We can be careful, we can be safe, but most of all, we can be happy.

Amen.

 

P.S. By the end of that day, I arrived at my destination well spent, and marvelled at the beauty of the landscape and the palatial house that awaited me. My host greeted me by the door, helped me upstairs, and fed me a beautiful nighttime meal with fresh greens and soothing tea. We laughed and shared stories, and planned for the next wonderful adventures ahead! 🙂
