A Lucky Child

This is an exerpt from a post I wrote on December 11, 2013 on my original blog www.ifyoucouldseewhatihear.wordpress.com.  With everything going on in the world today, today specifically, I thought it was appropriate to re-post.  Let us think about those less fortunate than us today, in all parts of the world, who just wish they were home.

This past weekend, I read a book that really made me stop and pause, and think about just how lucky I am to be warm inside, with my family around me.  How Lucky I AM – period.  That book is A Lucky Child by Thomas Buergenthal.

This morning I was outside doing some work in the back yard, filling up holes that had been dug by dogs…and it reminded me of the time I spent working as a merchandiser at Lowe’s in the garden department.  I love gardens and plants.  I love talking to people about gardening.  So I thought this would be a great job for me – active, outdoors, and since I started in January it would be brisk and keep me moving.  Yea, the day I started we had a cold snap and it froze.  Unloading and moving wet heavy plants around when it’s freezing, not cool.  This morning reminded me of that time and how miserable it was.  But that’s nothing, LITERALLY NOTHING.  Not even a drop in the bucket.  I’ve got nothing on little Tommy Buergenthal – the child – yes, CHILD – that survived  Auschwitz and Sachsenhausen concentration camps.  He survived the Auschwitz Death March.  And when I say child I mean CHILD, he was liberated from Sachsenhausen at the age of 11.

This past week whenever outside dressed in many layers – long-sleeved t-shirt, heavy jeans, sweater, scarf, heavy coat, and still freezing – even just walking from the car to the grocery store –  I have thought about Tommy.  Who walked the Auschwitz Death March while starving, in what equated to nothing more than thin pajamas, boots too big and no socks, with rags wrapped around his feet..  And I think, could I have done it?  This child who by what he describes as “luck” – his mother was told by a clairvoyant that he was “Ein Glückskind” – a Lucky Child.  She knew that her son would make it through the war – never doubting it.  Miraculously, he did make it, in that time relying solely on luck, the kindness of others, his own Continue reading “A Lucky Child”

UNBREAKABLE

Growing up we had everything we needed. 5 kids – at times in private school – on a cop and secretary’s salaries. Now as an adult, who with my husband at times have struggled financially because I stayed home – with 2 kids – I have no idea how my parents did it. But I am grateful EVERY SINGLE DAY for the sacrifices I know they made to support and love us.

 

HernandezThrough all the extra jobs and all the boxes of hamburger helper because it went the farthest, through the fear of not knowing where the money would come from, because I’ve been there too, I am grateful. Through the hugs and encouragement because it’s what they had to give – not the money to buy name brands, but what they could afford. None of that stuff matters, it all ended up in the trash, or at goodwill, or who knows where? But the hugs and the love – the unconditional love we were given and Continue reading “UNBREAKABLE”

Are you seeing Miracles? Start by SEEING EVERYTHING.

Miracles are going on all around us and although there is no degree – although we tend to start small.  We start with what we can – or allow ourselves to see.  So the question is – Are you seeing Miracles?  If not, why not?  Here are some answers.  And if you keep reading, you’ll see a little miracle, after all the gunk that is….

CLUTTER.  Mind clutter.  I’ve noticed a pattern with people lately – One I used to fall into, and still do on occasion, but now I catch myself.  I’M SOOOOOOO BUSY.  But take a second.  Think about it.  Are you?  ARE you?  how much time are you spending on things that DO NOT MATTER or contribute to your (and the people around you’s) quality of life.  Facebook.  Twitter.  Reading about celebrities – people you do not know and do not know you.  I’m not saying don’t use those things, but use them less or pick 1, only 1.  Notice when you start and when you stop.  10 minutes is more than enough.

DRAMA.  Yours or other people’s.  Doesn’t matter.  Getting down and dirty into someone else’s, or needing to tell your drama story – again, this is KEEPING you away from true quality of life, the true RICH experiences you deserve.  Drama is not a rich experience.  Drama is perpetuating foolishness.  It’s that simple.  Once you take a few steps back you can REALLY see it.  Drama creates DRAG.  Bags dragging on the ground is what I see.  Roots intertwined, creating a suffocation and inability to grow.  Do your friends stress you out?  Do you call them only to bitch, and do they call you to do the same?  It’s time for new friends.  You are holding yourself back from miracles. So many people have told me, “But wait!  What if that person is my MOM/SISTER/BROTHER/DAD??”  Oh yea, I hear that all the time.  ALL the time!  Should the fact you are related to this person have anything to do with the fact you are allowing the relationship to hold you back from miracles?  (Notice what I said – you are allowing the relationship to hold you back from miracles.  I didn’t say  THEY are holding you back from miracles.  See what I did there?  See what you are allowing?  BAM!

Here’s the flip of those:

CLEAN OPEN SPACES:  Clear out the crap.  Then do another sweep and clear out some more.  I’m in the process of doing this, in my home.  Clean it out and DON’T IMMEDIATELY GO LOOKING FOR MORE!  Don’t replace what you just cleaned! We all do it, notice it, and stop.  It works the same way in life.  Instead of buying more disposable crap, get rid of it all and get one GOOD thing that does the job.  You only need one.  (I only need one, maybe two black t-shirts.  Do you know what I pick up the most when I go shop?  PUT DOWN THE BLACK T SHIRT!  YOU ALREADY HAVE 10!)  See how this carries over to FB, Twitter, Instagram, TMZ, You don’t have to read Every Article on FB.  Pick one.  Move on.  DON’T read the comments.  They will only piss you off and contribute to that mind clutter.  Leave some open space – for spontaneity, to do something different, stop and chat face to face with a friend…great things can happen in that “open” space.  Take your kid for an ice cream, throw the ball for 10 minutes, you get it.  There are no screens in open space.  (Sorry)

DON’T PLAY:  Divert Divert Divert.  Present positive conversations instead of negative ones.  Thing is, sometimes that doesn’t work.  Be ok with that.  Just don’t return those phone calls, or if you are able, let that person know you can’t have that conversation anymore, but say it with love – Literally – tell them, listen, “I love you, but I just can’t talk about that anymore”.  Or simply say “That doesn’t work for me.”  Simple.  To the point.  Not a lot of words, and more importantly NO EXCUSES.  I learned that from my Mother In Law Years ago – and I still use it to this day.  No Judgement, no fluff.  I share it with people all the time and see that light bulb go on…wow.  Yea, that DOESN’T work for me!  You’re welcome.

Some people will feel judged by that, but remember, you are trying to see miracles, don’t let that stand in your way.  Invite them to see miracles too!  Some will take you up on it, some won’t.  That’s just the way it is.  Maybe the invitation plants a seed that you will never see grow.  But the seed is there none the less.  Pretty cool.

Do these things and then…going through your day, notice EVERYTHING.  Let your vision open.  Use the peripheral.  REALLY use the peripheral.  Here’s an example – a couple of days ago I went out back to let my dogs out.  The sun was shining on the grass, and I noticed a twinkle.  I’d been standing on the back porch just looking at…well, nothing.  Just looking around the yard, when I saw that twinkle.  Can you see them?  bigger picture blades of grass

They caught my attention because I WASN’T REALLY LOOKING FOR ANYTHING.  I was just in open space.  I wasn’t trying to accomplish anything, or make something happen, fill the time with something.  But when I saw that little twinkle, I thought, “huh, what’s that?”  and I walked over.  This is what I saw.

blades of grass

And I was amazed.  Each blade that held a drop and almost all of them did – was beautiful in its own right.  But together, they were stupendous.  And they were everywhere.  I took a few minutes to take the pictures and just enjoy them.  I felt like each one was smiling at me, happy to be recognized.  Miracles are HAPPY to be recognized.  This was a beautiful shared moment.  The picture cannot express the feeling I felt being connected just momentarily to these tiny sweet blades of grass.  I looked out later, and the drops were gone.

Open space allows for miracles to be seen.  Tunnel vision does not allow for miracles.  When I work with kids I tell them, SEE EVERYTHING.  We practice it.  I tell them look at me, but notice – not by looking – but by using your peripheral vision – tell me what color socks the kid next to you is wearing.  It freaks them out that they can do that.  I tell them, practice seeing everything.  When you train yourself to “see everything” you start catching the little things.  And that’s where a lot of the miracles are.  That’s where we start seeing them anyway.  Connections happen, in the little miracles.  When you start connecting to the little things, you start CONNECTING the little things.  You notice synchronicities.  Then you notice more.  And when you notice more, you start to talk about them, then you talk less about drama.  This is the way this happens.  You are open to the new and forget, simply forget about the old.  You are ready for experiences that SERVE you, and in turn you can SERVE others.  Remember the clutter?  Does it serve you?  If it doesn’t get rid of it.  Does the Drama serve you, so you in turn can serve others?  You know the answers.  See the connections.  They will only get bigger and more frequent.  See EVERYTHING, and you will inevitably SEE MIRACLES.

And when you repeatedly see miracles, you start to TALK about miracles.  Then you talk about miracles more and more, and the only conversations you have are about miracles.  And they spark other interesting conversations and connections.  Believe me, I see it EVERY DAY.  Sure you still go to work, but you see it differently.  You still have to  go to the store, get gas, drive your kids around, but you live it DIFFERENTLY.  You begin to see things differently, then you begin to do things with intent.  You still go  on Facebook, but for shorter periods of time, because your life is fuller with good stuff.  People start to send you stories like this one.  And you know where I got it?  My Mom – sent it to me….on Facebook.

If you have time read the article and watch the video, but definitely read the article – it lists way more miracles than the video does.  And please note: this is not about religion.  This is about a direct connection, synchronicities that cannot be denied, and a little boy who was dead for 45 minutes who came back to life.  It’s that simple.  If you enjoy it, or feel lead to, please share.  Let’s talk about Miracles.

Have an amazing, miracle filled day.

 

Entrainment, Family Connection and Call of Duty?

Entrainment is something I’m going to start talking a lot about because it’s what’s coming in for me to share.  I’m going to start putting practical information on here about how to open the connection to the upper mind.  You can call it whatever you want – Psi-mind, psychic abilities, the ethers (yea, what Einstein was talking about) consciousness…whatever viewpoint works for you, the words don’t matter.  Entrainment is basically the program.  As in get with THE PROGRAM.  All this stuff is happening all around us all the time.  Period.  Dispute it or not, it doesn’t matter to me.  Here’s how you get to it if you choose.  For some it’s easy, for others too difficult.  It’s as easy or as hard as you want it to be.  But it is absolutely obtainable.

 

  1. Entrainment (biomusicology), the synchronization of organisms to an external rhythm. Entrainment (chronobiology), the alignment of a circadian system’s period and phase to the period and phase of an external rhythm.

I’m going to challenge the definition and push it a little.  The Entrainment I’M talking about is the synchronization of organisms to an INTERNAL RHYTHM.  We all have it.  And you know what we do with it?  We hide it, we cover it up, we pay attention to ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING BUT THIS RHYTHM.

WHY?  Because it’s easy.  There are so many deterrents from THE PURPOSE that pull our attention away.  Facebook, Netflix, The View, any given bullshit news channel (both sides, I’m not picking favorites here), fake celebrity news, ANY housewives reality show, really – it all has a name: ENTERTAINMENT.  Such similar words with such different meanings.  When did we have to start being ENTERTAINED 24/7?  what is all of this crap CONTRIBUTING to our existence?  Does it enrich us?  No, it keeps us from our true nature  – it keeps us from ENTRAINMENT.  Keeps us from THE PURPOSE.  So what can we do?

TURN OUR ATTENTION to what matters.  Real Relationships, Family, Friendships.  I’m going to use family as the example here.  Are your family experiences rich?  wedding pic me jim ninaAre you creating memories with the people in your home?  I’m going to start posing what may be some hard questions here, but this is what I’m here for so keep reading or close the page.  It’s your choice.  I’m also going to give some solutions, you can start small and build on them.  So I’m not just going to call you out and leave you hanging.  I’ll even give you some examples to work with – some things that have worked for me/my family and continue to work for me in real time.

When you have a conversation with someone – actually listen to and care about what they are saying.  Don’t just be thinking about what you are going to say next.

This is an asshole move that a lot of us do all of the time.  But dude, don’t do it to your family.  How many times have you been telling (insert loved one here) a story and they just
walk out of the room?  Yea, remember how that feels?  Don’t do it to other people.  It sucks.  For GOD’S SAKE don’t do this to your kids.  Even if it starts with a 5 minute conversation – that is a real interaction – that’s a win.  Take it.

Talk about things the other person is interested in, even if you aren’t.

You may be thinking – Why?  Because it ENGAGES the other person and they want to share what they enjoy, even if they won’t admit it.  Here’s an example of what I’m talking about from my personal experience.  My son plays MINECRAFT.  He also plays FIFA and CALL OF DUTY.  None of which I  was interested in.  But you know what I AM interested in?  MY SON.

So something interesting happened – back when he was playing Minecraft like a fiend – literally this game is like crack to kids – he would build these elaborate places, buildings, scenes out of nothing.  As I was walking by he’d stop me and say “Mom, look at this.”  and show me a little something he had made, like a cart on an elaborate track that goes all through his structures and underground, actually some pretty cool and creative stuff.  I’d actually take the time to SIT DOWN and look at it and have a quick conversation about it with him.  What started as quick conversations became longer ones, which included, “what are those shuffling things?”  “How do you keep from forgetting where all your stuff is?”He was Engaging me and in turn we were Interacting.  That was a first step.  He saw I showed interest, and began engaging me more and more.  If I hadn’t shown interest, he would have stopped.  But soon he was building these elaborate scenes FOR me.  To show and share with me.  It made me feel special, and I know it made him feel special too.  Sometimes he’d call me in to watch something when I was busy, but I always made sure to let him know I’d be there as soon as I was done, and I wouldn’t forget.  FOLLOW THROUGH is a big part of Entrainment, disappointment is a backslide.  So if you are going to start practicing entrainment, it’s ok to start small.  But make sure you follow through.  And sometimes things don’t stick and that’s ok too.  Alex tried to teach me how to play Call of Duty.  He said, “It sure would be fun if we could play together, Mom.”  Now WHAT 13 year old boy wants to play Call of Duty with his mom?  Yea, it’s pretty rad.  But I suck at Call of Duty.  It makes me dizzy, especially split screen, when I see someone I just start firing like crazy, and end up getting killed.  Alex is yelling at me to shoot this guy or that guy or to go left, and I’m yelling back that I CAN’T while my guy is spinning in circles and I just suck at it.  We end up laughing so hard we can’t even play, but playing isn’t the point.  He still asks me to play sometimes, but we just laugh and I’ll sit down and just watch him for a while.  Still engaging, just not interactively – which is ok too.

OK so all for now.  Entrainment is a way of life, start somewhere.  Engage, start at home.  START WHERE YOU ARE.  And don’t judge your interactions.  Ask questions and wait for the answers, don’t be just thinking of yourself and what you want to say next.  A lot of Entrainment is focusing on others,  instead of yourself.  And it’s freaking refreshing to do once you get used to it.  Here’s something else to think about – a HUGE accessory that we have come so connected to that is trumping Entrainment on a ridiculously regular basis.  So I’m going to say it, and just straight on address it.

FOR GOD’S SAKE GET OFF OF YOUR GOD DAMN TABLET, IPHONE, FACEBOOK ETC.

And yes, I’m yelling.  And yes, I do it too, but I’m doing better.  Alex still plays Playstation, just not ALL THE TIME.  When you DISCONNECT and instead ENTRAIN a funny thing happens, the more you disconnect from technology and connect with people, the less you miss technology.  I’ve started having Phone Free Sundays and it’s refreshing.  Liberating.  And I’m not here to judge ANYONE, I’m just here to say there is a different way.  If everyone in your family is in separate rooms all of the time on devices, or just as bad, all in the same room, but on devices – there are opportunities for Entrainment that are just passing you by.  So PUT DOWN YOUR DEVICES and Interact with your family.  Even if it’s just to all put your attention towards something – like a TV show you all watch together every week, start there.  Then try having a conversation about it.  A big part of Entrainment is REPETITION.  There is a time and a place for everything, the time for devices is not ALL OF THE TIME.  Put that shit DOWN!  Disconnect SO you can Engage.  In person.  Personally.  An interesting thing that happens is you may learn something new about the person you are interacting with, or about the topic around which you are interacting.  Or about yourself.  Either way, it’s spending time together and that’s a WIN/WIN, a win for you, and a win for the other person, then a collective win too.  Pretty Awesome.

Do you have an entrainment story you would like to add that works for you?  If so please share it in the comments.
