The Love Frequency

046e2c9a31325eacebc56e4d493f9a70

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner many people have love on their mind. Love is not necessarily romantic, but it is instilled within us and something we cannot live without.

People claim to not need love; they hide it away, lock it within themselves and throw away the key.

They pretend that it does not exist and that it is unimportant.

Many people experience it, and lose it only to pretend that it was never there and not really that important to begin with anyway.

It has the power to uplift and destroy.

Sometimes it creeps in like a flood, and other times it hits like an earthquake.

Often times it erupts like a volcano, over running everything within its radius.

It can hit to the core of your being and make your whole life illuminate with a radiance that is both indescribable and unexplainable.

What is really funny about Love is that, it is uncontrollable.

To know Love is a little taste of heaven on earth. Love never decreases in measure, it only increases. Love never dies; it only lives on in the depths of your being.

Spread a little love today and watch the world change around you!!!

“Love is patient, love is kind… It always protects, always trusts, Always shares, always perseveres. Love never fails.” ~I Corinthians 13:4

Memories From Three Years Ago

me-rene34

February 04, 2014 one of the most traumatic events of my life occurred, I was robbed and raped.  I don’t write a lot on my blog about my personal life, but this does not escape my memory.  I remember that day well. Everything changed. Those of you that have been following me know that I am an invalid and this was unimaginable when I woke up at 4:30 AM to a knife in my side and a man on top of me with his other hand over my mouth.  His first words were, “I’m going to kill you.” Calmly I replied, “Kill me.”  He kept repeating this because I believe he wanted a scared reaction instead of my calm attitude and I kept answering him the same.  Kill me.

I could see that he had been in my room for quite some time as every cabinet and closet was opened.  He had to be extremely quiet because I sleep lightly. I also could feel that he had taken my father’s wedding ring which was on a necklace around my neck.  I knew I would never get it back and it was the only thing I had left of my father’s.  I really was not afraid of dying.  I was concerned about being cut up and permanently damaged.

Keeping my calm demeanor serenely I began praying out loud.  This really aggravated him and he stuffed a scarf down my throat, but I continued to pray. At a time like that you realize the only help you can get will be from The Divine!  He did what he wanted to do and left quickly because I could see that somehow he had become afraid.  I believe it was because of all of the divine entities that came into my room at that time.  I kept praying until I was positive he was gone.

At that point I called Rene, my son from another mother. He was here within ten minutes and I cannot begin to say how happy I was to see him. He held me as I cried. That was what I needed in that moment.

Anyone who has been through a robbery/rape can relate to what I’m saying.  Yes, I have healed in many ways, but I will always remember this incident.  Thanks to a donation I was able to install a metal security door on my bedroom, so now it would be close to impossible to get into my room at night.  Because of that security door I’m able to sleep without great concern.

For anyone who goes through an attack like this remain calm and pray because you will find help from beyond.  I do not claim to be an expert on rape victims, but I know what worked for me.

I am a survivor of rape. It isn’t anyone’s job or right to call it legitimate or otherwise. I am standing up for all rape survivors. I’m One!

The bottom line to remember is: “You live, You win.”

Many blessings to all of you survivors,

Elvis Presley’s 82th birthday!

 

Elvis Presley in 1969

Elvis Presley in 1969

82 years ago, January 08, 1935, Elvis Presley came into this world. He certainly shook it up forever. I remember being five years old and seeing him the first time he was on the Ed Sullivan show. I stood in the middle of the living room dancing much to the delight of my family. My mother loved him from the moment she saw him because he came from a poor southern upbringing just like her. You can say from that moment on I was a rock and roll fan.

In 1969 Elvis made his big comeback in Las Vegas.   My best girl friend and I saw him perform the very first week at the International Hotel. He was really on top of his performance in 1969. Dressed in an all black karate suit he came on stage without all the glitz, sparkle, and glamour and just rocked the house.

In 1969 one of my best friends was in the marines and on the weekends he would bring his buddies to my apartment and they would play music and different games. I will never forget this one young man who kept playing my album “Elvis 68” over and over again one weekend. The song he would play the most was, “If I Could Dream.” It is a powerful song that Elvis felt was his message to the world about how it could change if it wanted to. He went to Vietnam and never made it back. To this day when I hear that song I still remember that young man.

I continued to see him perform in Las Vegas over the years and his voice was always outstanding, but there was a change in him and I did not feel him connecting to the audience. Little did I know of his troubles.

I felt a great loss when he passed in 1977. He was so young and so much ahead of him. He lives on through his music and movies. The world was never the same after Elvis Presley. He definitely made a major impact that lasts even now. Not bad for a poor southern boy.

Gone but never forgotten and he always will be the King of Rock And Roll! John Lennon once said, “Before Elvis there was nothing.” He of course was referring to Elvis’s music. I am enclosing my favorite song “If I Can Dream” by Elvis Presley.

All I can say is that I am glad that I lived to experience so many great musicians in my lifetime. There’s no question that Elvis Presley is the King of Rock And Roll. You will never be forgotten Elvis.

Please share your memories and thoughts about Elvis.

Happy birthday in Heaven Elvis,

36 Years Since John Lennon Was Assassinated!

7faces-lennon

It is hard to believe that it has been 36 years since one of the beacons of light that shined upon our consciousness and our world was extinguished.  John Lennon touched the lives of so many people with his music, his strong views about peace, and stopping war.  He was willing to expose all parts of himself the good and the not so good.  Yet, he always remained true to himself.

It’s Time to Move the Clocks Backwards

dont-forget

It’s time to “fall back” before you go to bed Saturday to return to Standard Time.

But many wonder why we have to go through this rigmarole each spring and fall, beyond the important reminder of changing the batteries in our smoke detectors.

Daylight saving time began in Europe during World War I to conserve energy, and then briefly migrated to the United States in 1918. It became a fixture in America after World War II.

The theory goes that by reducing the amount of indoor light used before bedtime, less electricity is used. A recent federal study found this to be the case. However, researchers have said the savings are negligible in modern, 24/7, computer-driven world, which I completely agree with.

In any case, synchronize with your community. Move clocks back an hour at 2 a.m. Sunday November 6, 2016.

The sun will rise and set earlier. But there will also be less sunlight for outdoor activities and shopping. More cars will be out at night, when visibility isn’t as good. Many people will vote after work Tuesday when it’s dusk or darker.

Back in 1972 it was a major energy crisis, which exists still today, and the government stopped the time change for two years. I found myself feeling physically and mentally better without these adjustments to our lives. It worked really well in 1972 and I think it would work the same way if we continued leaving the time the same year round. This is just my opinion.

Where do you fit in the “spring forward, fall back” time continuum? I would love to hear your opinions.

As for me I will be out of sync until I reprogram my body to accept this change.  😦

Fall blessings,

The History of Halloween and Samhain

copy-of-254413_10151126948028740_371639456_n-copia

It’s Halloween – the celebration the ancient Celts called Samhain. This marks the Celtic beginning of the New Year and winter. This celebration starts at sunset on October 31 to sunset November 1.

Samhain is the Gateway to winter, where the veils are especially thin between these worlds of the seen and unseen. The Celts called the unseen realms the ‘Otherworld’, a place of beauty, rest, and renewal. Samhain is a time in the cycle of the year for slowing down. For connecting to your deep self and resting there in the healing power of your inner nature. It is the turning of the seasons where you can commune with the earth mother’s womb from which all that is created is birthed.

This marks the time to honor the worlds of the seen and unseen – our everyday world, and the worlds of imagination, mystery, and spirit.

Halloween is also a time for honoring your loved ones who have passed. Perhaps today you may want to light a candle and recall in your heart the cherished memories of loved ones who are no longer in the physical world.

Or you might simply gather some colorful autumn leaves to place in a bowl on your kitchen counter, to acknowledge what you would like to shed in your life and what you would like to seed deep within you for rebirth and renewal.

Straddling the line between fall and winter, plenty and paucity, life and death, Halloween is a time of celebration and superstition

TODAY’S HALLOWEEN TRADITIONS

The American Halloween tradition of “trick-or-treating” probably dates back to the early All Souls’ Day parades in England. During the festivities, poor citizens would beg for food and families would give them pastries called “soul cakes” in return for their promise to pray for the family’s dead relatives. The distribution of soul cakes was encouraged by the church as a way to replace the ancient practice of leaving food and wine for roaming spirits. The practice, which was referred to as “going a-souling” was eventually taken up by children who would visit the houses in their neighborhood and be given ale, food, and money.

The tradition of dressing in costume for Halloween has both European and Celtic roots. Hundreds of years ago, winter was an uncertain and frightening time. Food supplies often ran low and, for the many people afraid of the dark, the short days of winter were full of constant worry. On Halloween, when it was believed that ghosts came back to the earthly world, people thought that they would encounter ghosts if they left their homes. To avoid being recognized by these ghosts, people would wear masks when they left their homes after dark so that the ghosts would mistake them for fellow spirits. On Halloween, to keep ghosts away from their houses, people would place bowls of food outside their homes to appease the ghosts and prevent them from attempting to enter.

Halloween evolved into a secular, community-based event characterized by child-friendly activities such as trick-or-treating. In a number of countries around the world, as the days grow shorter and the nights get colder, people continue to usher in the winter season with gatherings, costumes and sweet treats. Leave treats on your doorstep to protect yourself from the wandering Spirits and dress in costume to hide from those in Spirit who may try to approach you.

So call it Halloween or Samhain take time to celebrate and enjoy this special time of year.

Warning Will Robinson…Orionid Meteor Shower! October 21, 2016

meteor-shower-calendar-th

The Orionid meteor shower, where Earth passes through debris left by the Halley comet (officially known as Comet 1P), is currently peaking. The shower started on October 2 and was visible for around a week but now is reaching its most intense period during October 20 and 21.

Although, if you miss the meteors there’s still the opportunity to seem them all the way through to around November 7.

The shower happens every year in October and sees the meteors travelling at around 41 miles per second – this is a relative speed of 148,000 mph (238,000 km/h). Usually, the meteors appear fairly faint in the sky but in areas with dark skies, little light pollution, and minimal cloud, there is still a chance of them being visible.

Enjoy the show,
Cherokee Billie
