Mediation Meditation

Standard

Mediation tomorrow.
You read that right,
MEDIATION.
As in, if my soon to be ex-husband
and I manage to collaborate tomorrow
we will reach some sort of resolution,
and this part of the saga will be over.
Please pray for me to be clear,
stay open, and breathe.
I want to move forward.
I want this to be over.
So I will bring my meditation
into mediation.
I’ll breathe and pray while I wait.
I’ll breathe and listen
before I answer.
If I can meditate during mediation,
I can meditate anywhere.

Anybody who prays, sends good vibes, visualizes or otherwise believes in the possibility of something existing beyond 3D reality:

Please hold me in your heart and in your thoughts and prayers as much as you can tomorrow, Monday, November 26, 2018, from 10AM EST on. Best prayer:  Lorien, breathe.  Best visualization: Me, my children and my soon to be 
ex-husband happy, healthy, peaceful and at ease, striking a good life balance. Any and all prayers and good vibes are welcome. Thank you in advance!

Help Me Create An Angels Playlist

Standard

Hi friends…as I was wallowing in my sorrow and misery a few days ago, something reminded me that I’m not alone, and suddenly I had this idea to reach out here…I mean, why not? What if this blog could be a place of connection and collaboration as well as a forum for self-exploration?  I became excited thinking about joining minds and energy for a common purpose, and these days any excitement at all is a step in the right direction, so I decided to go for it.

My first idea for a collaborative project is super simple and easy:  it’s a call for songs that make you feel uplifted and inspired, that break your heart open and remind you of the presence of the Divine in your life.

I have always loved the idea of angels watching over us…and music is one of the ways that I feel the Divine communicates with us.  What if we co-created an Angels playlist, made entirely of beautiful music that speaks directly to our souls??  Do you know of any songs that have an angelic feel or theme to them?  What if we put all of our songs together and created a playlist that would be comforting, soothing, welcoming, uplifting, healing, inspiring?  What if  this music could help some fellow wayfarers on the path feel a little less alone, a little more inspired, hopeful?

Please leave a comment with your top 1-3 divinely inspired songs and any pertinent info that will help me to find them (album, artist, etc.).  Once I have a few song titles I’ll create a playlist on Spotify and share it here.  Thanks so much for your help, friends.  I look forward to hearing from you.

With hope and gratitude,

Lorien

A Birdcage Cover

Standard

It’s past my bedtime,
1:29 am, to be precise.
The crickets sing in unison
a most beautiful lullaby,
and in the background there’s the distant whoosh
of cars hurtling through the night on the highway.
I should’ve gone to bed hours ago,
but instead I made a birdcage cover for my brother in law.

The birds were waking him up in the morning,
and I thought to myself, “It should be easy enough.
“Let’s make a cover for the cage to keep the light out.”

I took measurements, we got some fabric yesterday.
Today I measured and cut the fabric
while my mother in law sewed.
We made a  great team;
she told me all sorts of funny stories,
and the birdcage cover took shape before my eyes.

We were persistent, even when midnight rolled around.
We snuck into my brother in law’s room to do a fitting,
and then back downstairs to the sewing machine
to attach velcro closures.

I asked the birds to behave themselves,
put the cover on the cage, and
loved the job I did.
The cover fit, and it looked pretty great.

I’m tired as hell now,
but my heart is full–
and I have a birdcage cover to show for my time.
