Swept A Swirl

Is it just me or is it Life’s objective lately to throw some really hard punches and fast balls? What a week!  Another one!  Am I ever on a streak here!  Every time I try to catch my breath, WAMMO, hard balls come a flying and it is all I can do is to hang on for dear life!  I’m not even sure what I am hanging on to anymore but I’m hangin’!  (smile)

Well, instead of going on and on about all that transpired in one week, I’ve opted instead to switch gears to write some encouraging words to you.  Seems as if so many are having such a hard time lately and together we are getting the stuffing kicked out of us.  So here are some thoughts I pass on to you …

Just do your best in any given situation.  If it gets to be too much take some time out for you.  Now for me this is not easy because it seems as if anytime I lay down just for 5, let’s say, one of my fur kids jumps on me to tell me, “Mom, I need ____.” And then I have to interpret what that message is which ultimately leaves me yep, getting up and carrying out the request.  If I do not, oh believe me, that lovely, sweet baby of mine will bug me until I can’t take it anymore.  So, I’ve learned to first fetch then and only then may I rest for a few.  The bosses I have …  *sighs*

Oh but I Love them.  Don’t get me wrong.  LOL

If tears are near, release them, then wipe them dry and know you can do whatever lays before you.  Rest more.  Get out in Nature.  Watch a good movie.  Soak in a bath.  Listen to some calming music.  Spend time with your fur kids.  Do something you Love to do.  Call a friend and go for a walk together.  Give your spouse or Loved One a hug and tell that person you need a hug too.

For those of us who understand what I am about to say, know that the emptiness and chaos you are experiencing now is indicative of you spiritually moving up a level.  That always happens when we come to impasse and no matter what we do we seem disconnected or blocked from our Beloved Source. This can be truly frightening.  I know it was for me until I began to see the pattern and now when this happens to me (every other day or so lately … no joke!) be patient, wait the period out and when it is over, the Divine Doors will not only open again but the Gifts shall pour forth.  This I speak from personal experience.

Laughter.  This for me is the quickest way to shake off the discouragement and chaos.  Just laugh.  I’ve ignited a kid in my Mother with my silliness and laughter and to hear her laugh brings such ultimate JOY to my Heart.  So much so in fact that a smile stays on my face all day long!  What a Blessing a laugh is!  A smile is another quick pick-me-upper.  Just smile.  Did you know you use more facial muscles when you frown then when you smile?  Did you know that with age your face begins to show whether you smile more or frown more?  I don’t know about you but I want smile creases on my face!

And due to the fact I am a very deep thinker who is always problem solving, I have deep creases in between my eyebrows.  Oh well.  At least this makes for an interesting canvas to gaze at.  My face tells its own story.  (smile)

Just please hang in there.  Know you are not alone and together, because we are friends, we can get through this phase that yes will pass.  In encouraging each other we will look back someday and fondly smile, as we remember how much Love we felt going on some wild rides.  Take good care of yourself!!  If you don’t, the consequences are just not worth it.  Just promise me you’ll care for you as best you can.  I am and so can you.

  1. I am a deep thinker too Amy. Cino also will not give up when she wants something. Sometimes, I even get a bit mad at her and kind of yell at her, but then I feel so guilty about it. Saying “shhhhh” to her works often. But I usually give in too. 🙂
    Hang in there, keep praying-he is listening, and maybe check out my Sunday Pause (Paws) with some pics and videos of Cino playing. They might cheer you up. 🙂

    1. Sometimes, LeeAnn, it is very hard for me not to push of whoever is on me demanding attention. I’ve actually done it and OH how badly I feel because always that cat truly is in need of something. The times I am so tired I’m ready to drop it takes super human effort for me to get up when all I want to do is take a power nap. My cats are so in tune with me and their needs they know they can “communicate” with me and depend on me figuring out what is required. 🙂 ❤

    1. Thank you, Jet. I actually used that energy to “fight back” when those hard balls came my way by creating the posts from last week, some pretty heavy hitters. Other times I do duck and shed a tear or two. Life has not been easy of late. Bless you for reaching out to me today! ❤

  2. Really beautiful crocuses, Amy 😀
    I think, that we are many living with these feelings now, by one or another reason. I take my time off, when I feel the need and haven’t done much for a while, more than the most necessary.
    Please take good care of yourself too, dear friend.
    Much love ❤

  3. That’s such a pretty flower, Amy. Regarding those fast balls, preseason baseball has started. I’ve swapped my Steelers hoodie for my Pirates one 🙂 Seriously, you have given us good advice. Who doesn’t need a hug sometimes, humans and fur kids. Our poor dog had a bad belly overnight. She’s super-clingy this morning, and, of course we’re complying with her wishes.

    1. Make sure you give Maddie lots of hugs, yet sometimes when animals are not feeling good they really don’t want to be bothered, much less hugged. OH I relate to clingy in spades. That’s what our “kids” do when they don’t feel good because they depend on Mom to help them. I really hope her tummy has settled down by now and she is curled up fast asleep. It’s amazing how much of our day is geared to accommodate our “kids”. At least it is in this house! Thank you for the beautiful comment and YAY for baseball. If that isn’t a sure sign of Spring I don’t know what is. Enjoy my Crocuses while you can because from what I hear they are soon going to be buried under a lot of white stuff. Much Love to you this evening! ❤

  4. Good advice, Amy. One of my beloved fur babies is a ‘healer,’ (I call her a thera-kitty 🙂 ) several times a day she comes to me and sits on my chest over my heart and PURRS for the longest time! It is her way of telling me to take ‘time out’ to center myself. She is such a blessing, I don’t know where I’d be without her!

    1. I have a few like that, Eliza, with Karma, who recently passed being the Master Healer in this house. Just today I had my Cookie stepping on my stomach that was cramping and really bothering me and OUCH! Yet she was so perfectly intent on what she was doing I let her go. And sure enough within moments relief was felt as I passed “wind”. Other times I will have Sassy or Cookie curled up on my chest purring away. Heaven. Pure Bliss. And yes Healing! I don’t know what I’d do without my babies. Oh yes I miss my Karma so much yet it seems others are now willing to become Healers. Beautiful! ❤

  5. Aww, a lovely message in this. You have such a great outlook on life. Crises be dammed!

    And there’s nothing wrong with being a deep thinker… I think I must be one too. I’m constantly frowning! I have to douse my face in coconut oil to keep those lines at bay – it works a treat!

    Much love, my friend ❤

  6. I love this post, Amy (surprise, surprise… lol) Yes, laughter brings back some lightness and helps to distance from the identification with the problem. Also, tears are so important to let all the accumulated pressure go. But what is most important is the knowing that this all is temporary. It gives us the strength to hang in!

    1. Thank you SO much, Erika. I just read your comment and being in the middle of “stuff” needing to be addressed here, I really haven’t yet responded to many comments. I wanted to share with you that just yesterday I questioned Source IF I stopped doing what I do here at Petals (getting the Messages out) would my Life get any easier? I never did get an answer so, with that in mind, I continue to walk my talk and follow my Heart. Yes this too shall pass. Dang, it’s been tough for me!!! That much I will say. Much Love!! (((HUGS))) ❤ ❤ ❤

      1. I know what you mean! I understand that you might feel a relief when you stop blogging. It is just something less in your head. But then again, it is something which is part of your expressed passion. Perhaps it suffices if you just take a time-out from blogging but don’t quit! I am at a similar point regarding my singing. Just need my head free from as much stuff as possible for a while in order to focus on what is about to come in the near future. So, I absolutely understand you, Amy!

      2. It’s more then that I think. There is an accountability that I must stand up to when I post the Whisperings I hear from Spirit. I could slack off and start digging into my lower emotions for example, something I am tempted to do at times dealing with some awful people. Seems the nicer I am and the more I stand up for Truth the more I get slapped. Nope. Accountability it is. And yes I have slacked off blogging a bit compared to what I used to do. Life right now is very fast paced and I must make time for me in order to accomplish all I have to do. 💖

      3. Amy…. this is your path! What you describe here shows it so clearly. I know what you mean with getting slapped when being nicer. It is not slapping it is training! You are meant for more and you are cleaned out. It is a painful path but in order to get rid of what hinders you to fulfill that call needs to be cleared out first. So you need to face your inner world, get to know yourself better, gain insights and at the same time free yourself from the blocks. This is amazing what you wrote here. You said, you asked and did not get an answer? This is the answer. I am having goosebumps all over and tears in my eyes writing this.💖💖

  7. Hang in there, Amy. I like your let’s do this attitude about it all. It’s a passing storm and a nice day awaits you. I too am a deep thinker and often find myself thinking about situations over and over. It is part of who I am and a lot of the time, it gets me no where! Sometimes we just have to let things be and trust it will come together. It will. Stay strong, my friend 🌹🌹❤❤❤

  8. AmyRose, what great reminders to relax and have fun, taking our focus of the non-stop bombardments of love energy that is making sure Humankind evolve. I’m in the middle of posting a similar post about what is happening… and how when we understand it becomes less challenging. In the meantime I am thankful for my friends here who join me on this journey to true freedom. Much love and laughter to you, barbara x

  9. Hello dear Amy!
    Lovely to visit you, it always is.
    As always your photos are stunning and gorgeous. However, today I found all of the words I read especially poignant.
    Thank you for your caring creativity! _Resa xx

    1. Dearest Resa, I read your comment last evening and for real, your words are a huge confirmation for me. I’ve been in a phase questioning whether to go on or not here, or whether anyone is even “getting” what I am writing. When I read your comment tears sprang to my eyes giving me such incentive to keep going here. I’ve taken some time off right now, needing to do so, but I just had to get back to you telling you the major role you played in my life. Bless you, Resa!! And thank you!!! (((HUGS))) ❤

      1. OMG! What a beautiful thing for you to say!
        I’m glad you’re taking some time off.
        You have a lot of followers who love your love, your words of encouragement, comfort and strength.
        However, blogging is a joy, not a job!!!!
        Blog when it feels good, when the time is right. If a week or 2 go by, so what?

  10. Such wonderful Advice dearest Amy.. And I had to smile on your next post about the weather forecasters being fired lol. Not nice for them personally I know.. But maybe the weather manipulators said their programmes would create havoc and it failed.. 🙂
    Yes lots of things going on at the moment.. And those of us who like us know about energies understand.. And you have given great advice.. I am only happy the weather here is brighter than where you are at the moment, Lovely as it is in and I loved the Macro shots by the way.
    I managed to go walking, and spent a little time in the allotment, I didn’t do too much as I just have not the energy right now..
    I am working my way back wards, and I am still sending to you in prayers and to your mom.. And taking time out to rest is really what we should all be doing more of..
    Doing this and nurturing ourselves as our hearts open to these powerful changes right now is the best thing any of us can do to help ease the woes of the rest of the world.. As we find Peace within ourselves..
    Sending lots of love dear Amy..
    Take care of you..
    Love Sue xxx ❤

    1. Dearest Sue, between my life and these energies I seem to be in a whirlwind just not able to get grounded. This whirl is pricking my darker side, and my anger, making me realize just how much I have been exposed to from this world because I am “nice”. Too many emotions are at the surface and until I can get them in order and come to understand why, I will not be interacting here. I’m completely fed up trying to be the one who is always there, no matter what is going on in my own life and putting my own needs aside. The time has come for me to say I will get respect for I deserve it … and I’m speaking not about my blog, but in life in general and from some I have contact with in my life. I’ve been taken so for granted but no more. I’m allowing my “badass” self to be seen, and if others don’t like it, I honestly don’t care right now. I used to be real good at badass. I know how to be badass. And for now coated with a learned tongue in cheek way, I act badass … in a firm, yet gentle way. I’m dealing with a lot of anger, anger that still needs to be resolved from my past. Resolved it will be. Oh if I have any way about it, it is resolved. So be it!!! Much Love to you …. I’m not communicating with most. Know that my Heart nudged me to speak Truth to you. ❤

      1. You know Amy this is so relevant what you are saying right now.. I am having acupuncture treatment for suppressed Anger.. a blockage between liver and Lung..
        It transpires that Anger rises during the Spring.. especially this time within the Moon phases etc.. So it makes sense what you are saying to let it all come out…
        Did you get to see my last post about Energies.. I can not remember if you made a comment forgive me if you did.. But So many people are saying the same… I have an interesting Video I will post later.. only 10 minutes which I think you will relate too… we are all waking up and helping alter the matrix…. Keep going with your intuition and keep within the flow,, of your own inner calm while making others away you are no longer a doormat.. ..
        Love and Hugs my dear friend.. Sue xxx

  11. This is such an encouraging post Amy. I’m a super deep thinker too and have no doubt I have many frown wrinkles but I’m working on turning those into smile creases. Much nicer to look at! Warmest wishes to you Amy, keep dodging those balls and keep laughing 😊
