Spinster

By the 19th century, the term spinster evolved to include women who were so finicky that they refused to marry. During that century middle-class spinsters, as well as their married peers, took ideals of love and marriage very seriously, and spinsterhood was indeed often a consequence of their adherence to those ideals. They remained unmarried not because of individual shortcomings but because they didn't find the one "who could be all things to the heart".  

Word spinsters. Word.

Let's be better...

I could just as easily speak down to you, but I don't. 

I try to ignore your disrespectful tone because I love you and I don't want to fight. 

Why does it feel like you want to fight with me?

I really want us to get along

You may get in my face, and I may try to diffuse the situation and talk you down, but I won't forget that you got in my face.

My mom said a lot of this stuff too Lenny


My mama said
That your life is a gift
And my mama said
There's much weight you will lift
And my mama said
Leave those bad boys alone
And my mama said
Be home before the dawn
And my mama said
You can be rich or poor
But my mama said
You can be big or small

But I'm always on the run,
Always on the run,
But I'm always on the run.

My mama said
That it's good to be fruitful
But my mama said
Don't take more than a mouthful
And my mama said
That it's good to be natural
And my mama said
That it's good to be factual

But I'm always on the run,
Always on the run,
But I'm always on the run.

My mama said
Baby don't ride that crazy horse
And my mama said
You must push with much force
And my mama said
Go get all that you're after
And my mama said
That love's all that matters

But I'm always on the run,
Always on the run,
But I'm always on the run ( on the run )

But I'm always on the run,
Always on the run,
But I'm always on the run.

Hmm, what say mama, you want it
Hmm, right now, got to hold on, yea

No I haven't joined a cult. These words just ring true to me :)


"This is my time of chilling.
This is my time of re-aligning the energy of my source.
This is the time, when source takes over my apparatus.
This is the time when source is communicating with my cells.
This is the time, when source is resonating with the cells of my body.
This is the time of complete relaxation, for me.
This is the time of complete renewal for me.
This is the time, when my body renews itself.
This is the time when my vibration restores itself.
This is the time, that I push the reset-button.
This is the time, when I let all that has been, just subside.
This is the time, where I begin in a new vibration, that will really serve me.
This is the time, where I allow the momentum of my Vortex to begin moving into my life-experience.
This is the turning point for me,
but not a turning-point that requires action!
In fact, it´s the opposite.
It requires de-activation.
It requires re-laxing, it requires softening my vibration.
It requires letting myself be.
It requires trusting that all is well!
It requires letting the source within me revel in that, which is me.
Anything like that, that you can say... don´t you all wanna take a nap, now?"  - Abraham Hicks

I just wanna be...

"I just wanna be.
I don´t wanna explain anything to anybody.
I don´t wanna explain where I´ve been.
I don´t wanna explain where I´m going.
I don´t want to explain how fast I´m getting there.
I just wanna BE.
It´s just me and the source within me, reveling in my physicalness, right here and now.
Just me.
Just starting over, just me. Just starting over.
And tomorrow, it´ll be an easy day of unfolding.
The momentum will just increase.
Everything that comes to me, everything that´s in my Vortex, and all that I have planned, is now going to address me, and meet me, and rendezvous differently- now, that I have achieved this softened, trusting, worthy-feeling-state-of-beingness." - Abraham Hicks

Joy Factor

"Your joy factor will remain constant as you are continually refining your ideas of what you want, and that’s why it is so important for you to get everybody else out of the equation. They’ve got their own game going on; they don’t understand your game. Give them a break; stop asking them what they think. Start paying attention to how you feel. Joy will be yours immediately, and everything else that you have ever thought would make you happy, will start flowing, seemingly effortlessly, into your experience." Abraham Hicks

Savor The Moment

"The Universe knows the essence of what you are reaching for and is yielding to you what you really want in the moment that you relax and let it all in.

As you start enjoying the essence of your desire, and not needing the manifestation of it, you become the owner of it, so to speak, without the complication of the details of manifestation. 

The essence of your desires will never go away. Your desires are eternally yours, and they will come to you at the very best time. You can influence the very best time by saying things like "The Universe knows the bigger picture. I'm going to let it deal with the timing of this. Meanwhile, I'll just do everything I can to keep moving happily along." 

In this inclusion based Universe, you get what you think about, whether you want it or not. And so, if you're saying "yes" to it, or if you are saying "no" to it--you are including it. In other words, sometimes you think there is a shortage of good things: "Good things will run out before I get mine." Humorously, you say, "What if I get to the dock, and my ship has already sailed?" And we say, there'll be another and another. Your Stream of Good never runs out. You don't have to tire yourself by trying to lap up the good--just enjoy the good you are lapping up. 
Savor more. Enjoy more. The more you savor the deliciousness of this moment, the more there will continue to appear before you more moments to be enjoyed." - Abraham Hicks

Funny story from work tonight

My friend at work has a problem with his voice which has been diagnosed as stress related.

He asks me to tell the specials of the night to his tables because sometimes people have trouble understanding him completely.

So, I went up to one of his tables tonight and I said "I am going to let you know what the specials are because Dave has a funny voice".  I didn't mean to say it like that, but that's how it came out.

So the guy at the table immediately and hilariously said to me "Is he your ex boyfriend or something?" ha ha

And then I laughed but I got a little flustered because I was not in any way trying to make an issue of Dave's voice problem. 

Anyway, hilarious customer continued with "Are there any other weird things we should know about Dave?"

Omg too funny.

I went back to Dave after all of this happened and told him what I said so he approached the table and said  in his very strained voice "Hi I'm Dave the strange guy with the strange voice" and the couple laughed because they were fun people with a great sense of humour.

I went back to the table later in the night to clear some plates because Dave was busy with another table and the customer said to me "I don't know why you broke up with Dave, he's a really nice guy!"

I wish all of the people I met were so hilarious. :)

Snake

My dad found a snake on the counter in my parent's house yesterday.  In January.  In Ontario.

He said "Do you think it's your mom sending us a sign?"  as I was on the other end of the phone googling snake meaning.  I said "I'm searching that right now."

And I found this:

"As snakes shed their skin through sloughing, they are symbols of rebirth, transformation, immortality, and healing. The ouroboros is a
symbol of eternity and continual renewal of life." 

and this:


"In many parts of Africa the snake is looked upon as the incarnation of deceased relatives.
 
My mother just keeps telling us she's around and I love it.

Shooting stars and meteors

I saw a shooting star on August 31st and two Octobers ago.  

And probably other times but those are the most significant ones to me.

And I saw a meteor tonight.

It was a huge ball of white arcing fire shooting through the sky in my town.

I found this interesting:

"Our best estimates of the total incoming meteoroid flux indicate that about 10 to 50 meteorite dropping events occur over the earth each day. It should be remembered, however, that 2/3 of these events will occur over ocean, while another 1/4 or so will occur over very uninhabited land areas, leaving only about 2 to 12 events each day with the potential for discovery by people. Half of these again occur on the night side of the earth, with even less chance of being noticed. Due to the combination of all of these factors, only a handful of witnessed meteorite falls occur each year.

I ran back in to my work to tell them about the fireball I saw and they said "You saw a meteor?  Maybe your luck is going to change!"  Fingers crossed.

Are you fucking kidding me???

Dear imbecilic researchers,

Fuck you and your research.  You are talking shit.  Spend a few months in my body and then tell me that it's imagined or a reaction to society's views on female cycles you fucking jerks.

"PMS doesn’t exist. Period.

Don’t blame premenstrual syndrome for feeling depressed, stressed and irritable. Turns out it may be a myth, according to a recently published paper in the journal Gender Medicine by a University of Toronto-led research team.

The researchers don’t dispute physical symptoms linked to menstruation, such as bloating or abdominal pain. But after reviewing 47 studies they found no clear evidence to support the idea that a woman’s menstrual cycle puts her in a negative mood in the days before her periods.

“This puzzlingly widespread belief needs challenging,” concluded the authors of Mood and the Menstrual Cycle: A Review of Prospective Data Studies. 

Gillian Einstein, one of the report’s authors, told the Star, “We have a menstrual cycle and we have moods, but they don’t necessarily correlate.” 

So why do women attribute feeling down to their menstrual cycles?
For one thing, PMS is a social construct, rooted in negative feelings many cultures have toward menstruation, a natural female function, said Einstein, a neuroscientist and director of the Collaborative Graduate Program in Women’s Health at the university.

Another possibility, she suggested, is that “this is the time of the month when women are given permission to not be sweet, docile and cheerful — expected attributes of women.
“It may be the time of the month when (women) feel they can say what’s on their minds.” 

Or as comic Roseanne Barr once put it, “Women complain about PMS, but I think of it as the only time of the month when I can be myself.”

PMS has long been the butt of jokes, with some referring to it as Pissy Mood Syndrome and Pardon My Sobbing. But turns out there may not even be anything to joke about.

For their review, the U of T researchers combed through studies dating back to 1806. They found 646 that dealt with mood and the menstrual cycle — but only focused on 47 that met vigorous scientific criteria. 

Of those, 18 showed no evidence of negative mood at any time of the month; another 18 found women were moody before and during their period; seven found classic PMS symptoms and in four studies women were actually crankier when they weren’t premenstrual.
A problem with much of the data was that women knew the real purpose of those studies, which may have influenced their responses. 

“What’s interesting about this review is that this is the information that the medical community, psychiatric community and people who are treating women who come in complaining of PMS — this is the literature they rely on,” said Einstein. “And, it’s not that great. Most of it doesn’t meet strong standards of evidence.”
To fill the need for more rigorous research, the team of researchers did their own studies. They found no relationship between women’s hormone levels and their moods, either positive or negative. 

Negative mood was much more strongly linked with poor health and high stress levels.

Sure, women are sometimes cranky, snarky, even weepy. But that’s more likely related to their circumstances. 

If women are really stressed out, or struggling with a bad life situation, they’re doing themselves a disservice by chalking up their negative mood to PMS, because then they won’t get the help they need, said Einstein.

“There are lots of things in the social sphere that affect women that are not completely tied to the biology of being a woman,” she said. “Don’t underestimate the power of life’s circumstances to affect how you’re feeling.”

Regrets

 I found this in an article...

A word about regrets. Never, ever allow regrets to dominate your thoughts.  Don’t let them rent a room in your mind’s chambers and NEVER let them move in!  Think about it this way – what if it had been YOU who’d passed away?  Would this loved one have things he or she would regret?  Of course!  We’re all human, capable of human frailties and faults.  But, would you want them to be haunted by regrets or guilt?  Of course not.  You’d want to tell them, “Forget about that.  I never gave it a second thought – I know you loved me.  Only remember the good times.  I don’t want to be remembered with tears or pain – I want to be remembered positively with laughter and smiles.”
As Washington Irving said "A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts." It is indeed a great loss to lose your mother...

A Mother's Love

A Mother's love is something
that no one can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
and of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away . . .
It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
even though the heart is breaking . . .
It believes beyond believing
when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
of the rarest, brightest gems . . .
It is far beyond defining,
it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
like the mysteries of creation . . .
A many splendored miracle
man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
of God's tender guiding hand.

My dream last night

My mom sent me a single pale pink rose in my dream last night.

"Generally speaking, a single rose can deliver the message of 'I love you'."

"In the field of dream analysis, analysts believe that dreams featuring pale or light pink roses indicate immense feelings of love or femininity as a primary focus."

"Pink roses are used to convey gentle emotions such as admiration, joy and gratitude. Light pink rose blooms are indicative of sweetness and innocence."

"These are a sweet, innocent pink. Romance is not symbolized. The pretty pink rose buds could be given to a very young girl. The open pink rose flower, to a woman whose virtues you admire. She could be your eldest daughter."

Love you too mom.  Forever.

The worst thing that could ever happen has happened

And then I got this email from a positive thinking website that I subscribed to that tells me:

"There's nothing unpleasant, unkind, or unjust that has ever happened within all of time and space, Robin, that I won't eventually undo, reverse, and make right, one billion times over. 


Guaranteed."

I'm just wondering when the unpleasant, unkind, and unjust is going to be reversed because right now nothing feels like it will ever feel even the slightest bit better, ever, let alone a billion times better.

My boss tells me that the chef at my work was in the men's change room, and he moved his jacket and this kid I work with's jacket fell down and out came TWO bags of cocaine. I have NO idea how to make that first sentence less choppy, so just go with it. Chef accidentally knocks over kid's jacket at work, two bags of cocaine apparently fall out, chef tells my boss what happened, and she tells me. I say "Well HOW would he know that it was actually cocaine?" and she says "He tasted it." and I say "So he knows what cocaine tastes like? Is he a chef AND a cop???" She says "Ha ha, yeah that's the best part of the story".

At the store...

I am at the cash and there is a woman behind me.

No mistaking that it is a woman.

Cashier says to me: Thanks have a good day!

Cashier says to the woman behind me: Do you need a bag SIR?

I start walking away SLOWLY so I can hear if he says something along the lines of: "Oh sorry ma'am* that just came out wrong!"

Nope. Nothing.

And of course she doesn't correct him because HOW RIDICULOUSLY EMBARRASSING would it be to say "I am not a sir"?

I really hope she didn't go home and like freak out or something just because that idiot cashier decided to pretend we didn't hear him call her sir, and now she might think she looks like a dude.


*Ma'am is the WORST thing you can call a woman in my opinion.

I would rather be called a cunt.

Seriously.

But either way I would despise you.

Unless you were REALLY young and you called me ma'am, then I might let it go because you were trying to be respectful of my oldness.

My first and last blind date...

From the beginning. My friends are starting to feel sorry for me because I am still single. So one of my friends decides to try and find me a man (which is really sweet of her). She knows this guy that is a client at her hair salon (who she says is REALLY cute and nice) and she asks him if he would be interested in meeting her friend. So he says "Yeah okay, I am not sure about this blind date stuff but let's try it."

She gives him my number.

He calls me.

I will sum up the phone conversation by cutting and pasting the emails I sent to my best friend about it:

Me:

"Talked to him on the phone tonight and one of the first things he said to me was 'A lot of women think I'm arrogant, but I'm not arrogant, I'm just SUPER confident so if I come across like that to you then just tell me to stop it' WHO FREAKING SAYS SHIT LIKE THAT????? IN THE FIRST TWO MINUTES OF SPEAKING TO A PERSON????? And then he said 'I am surprised you haven't heard of me or my brothers, we were pretty infamous, not always for good things' I am actually scared a little. But still going to do it to say I did. Gawd, gawd, gawd."

BFF:

"lol, i am laughing at your description...i can just imagine!!!!!
i am thinking not your type either - but who knows what may happen ha ha"

Me:

"I so want to bail, but maybe you are right, maybe I could sell him a house or something. lol SO not my type."


BFF:

"You will have to fill me in when you get back lol. i am very proud of you for going though, regardless of the outcome, it's a huge step for you! that's right, sell him a house! now that is the right attitude!!"

Me:

"I think I will bring a tape recorder so I don't miss anything he says. Or I guess I could just take notes. Cuz just IMAGINE what kinda shit he is probably going to say after he has a couple sips of beer and has known me for more than five minutes. ;)"



Okay so flash forward to the "day of reckoning". Why the fuck am I actually going? I don't know, because I said I would and I am a sucker? Anyway, K. calls and says "We can go with you so that you are more comfortable because we know him" and I am like "HELL YA, please come!"

So dickhead calls (oh what did I call him?) and says "Are you ready to go out?" And I say "Yeah...K. and L. are going to come, is that okay?" And he's like "Yeah okay, so I will meet you all there? Cool."

We get there and penisface (Wait what? That's not nice...) is already there. I am introduced and we all sit down.

Then fuckface says...

* Actually I will just cut and paste the emails I sent to my BFF AFTER the "date" was over.*

Me:

"
As expected...

We all had dinner and he was annoying, and insecure, and opinionated but cute. Apparently I am just not shallow enough to get over bad personalities. At least I went, even if I had chaperones.

He announced (during dinner) that he had a DUI, and he decided to keep it on his record instead of getting it taken off because it's a good reminder NOT TO DRIVE DRUNK. Ugh.

AND he is really picky about ribs, he likes fall off the bone ribs, he will only eat halibut NOT haddock, the restaurant sucked, and blah blah fucking blah.

He has longish hair and he had it down, then UP, then DOWN - every time he went to the washroom he changed it. It was like I was watching a play...that I DIDN'T WANT TO WATCH.

He also told me he likes to give fast food employees a hard time if his food is not hot. I told him (because he asked me - even though I was trying to act like I was mute) 'I would just ask them for a replacement meal because mine is cold', and he said 'NO you have to intimidate them so they NEVER do that to you again" When he was telling me the he likes to intimidate fast food employees thing ALL I COULD THINK was I need to go home and BLOG this.

I think I am going to stay single forever if that's what's "out there".

HOLY SHIT, how can somebody SUCK so much?

Cashier at discount grocery store:

"Are you making something special? I have never seen anyone buy so many tins of sardines at once."


My awkwardness is legendary. And I hate sardines. My dog loves them though.
Email to my boss:

"I think the hand scanner fired me tonight. I tried my number three times and it said my ID was temporarily invalid. I waited for a bit and tried again and it still wouldn't accept my ID. So Dave said to send you an email. This is the email."

Email back:

"I am glad to see you are taking the firing so well—I was a little nervous and really wasn’t looking forward to a face to face — it has been real — happy life!!!!!!"


"Happy life!!!!!" made me lol. And almost roflmao.

Girl I haven't seen since high school (we went out for Thai food recently):

"When you came to our high school in your long black coat and big black boots I thought 'oh here comes trouble!'"

Me:

"So you decided to befriend me?"

Her:

*laughs*

Her:

"You taught me how to drink beer. I kept saying it's burning, I can't do it, and you said you've got work at it."


Ha. She also said I was a rebel, who disliked mainstream stuff. Ahhh the old days.

I didn't write this list and I don't work at Swiss Chalet but it made me laugh.

It's from the Facebook group "I work at Swiss Chalet and therefore I hate my life".

Ha ha. Just stumbled across it.


THE RULES:

1. Do not ask me for a spoon for the chicken sauce, you are making me sick.
2. Just because i have a name tag on doesn't mean you get to use my name. Ever.
3. I don't know why the white meat is more expensive. It just is. Get over it. It's like 50 cents.
4. No...it's not lemon soup. It's a finger bowl, you wash your cheap hands with it. And stop joking with me about it being lemon soup. I've heard that line nine times today. Shut the fuck up.
5. If you're not planning on tipping properly, take your ass over to the take-out window. They're even more unhappy than us, and will be waiting there to serve you with a frown, and probably some cold fries.
6. Your meat IS going to be a bit pink, you DID ask for the dark meat. Suck it up
7. Do not ask for skinless quarter chicken...do it yourself. Kindergarten is over.
8. Do not expect a finger bowl if you order a pot pie and salad. USE A FORK!
9. NO you cannot have a soup as your side. Pick something else!
10. Do not expect anymore service after you pay your bill. Vacate your table in a timely manner so I may fill it with another group of clueless morons in an attempt to actually make money.
11. When you come to the take-out window, know what you want. There is always a line, and I do not enjoy when you're holding it up.
12. When ordering at take-out, there is no need to tell me your order is "to go". Especially when you say it six times. I think I got the hint when you ordered it at the take-out window.
13. If you want to get my attention do not SNAP YOUR FINGERS AT ME LIKE I'M A DOG! Just because I work at a restaurant that doesn't mean I'm your slave.
14. When every booth/table in the restaurant is full don't bitch about where I seat you. Sit your ass down or go to another restaurant and wait an hour to get sat there.
15. When a hostess brings you to a table in the back of the restaurant do not make a smart ass comment such as "If you would have taken me any farther I would be sitting in the parking lot" and then laugh. It's not witty, it's just annoying and you are not the first one to say it.
16. Do not tell the hostess that you don't want to sit around people/children. ESPECIALLY ON WEDNESDAYS WHEN KIDS EAT FREE! Children have to eat too. If you don't want to be around people then STAY HOME DAMMIT!
17. When I ask you if you would like a booth or a table that is a hint that you are too LARGE to fit in a booth. Take the hint, and save us your bitching and the pains of reseating you five minutes later! No one wants to see you try to wedge yourself into the booth so that you need the JAWS OF LIFE to get out!! And yes, all the booths really are the same size.
18. Stop leaving your coupons on the end of the table like we're going to forget about them. It's not really that important.
19. Dont ask for hot water and 5 lemons, order a fucking tea. It's not that expensive yet. Or better yet, get a pop, so I don't have to take the time to prepare said tea.
20. Don't eat your entire meal and then bitch that it was shitty. You're not getting it for free if there's nothing left on the plate.
21. Don't fucking touch me. I'm not here for you to pet. Give me your order, and leave me alone.
22. If you see a hostess stand, that is a clue there may be a hostess working in this restaurant. DO NOT SEAT YOURSELF. Especially at a dirty table.
23. DO NOT, under any circumstances, bring your check up to the bar to pay, at least in the Buffalo area stores. We haven't had a cash register there since Labor Day of 2005. If it says "please pay server" on the receipt, it might be a good idea to do just that. If you approach my bar, I will only scowl at you and remind you it has now been fifteen months since the register existed.
24. Don't tell me how unpleasant your last visit was. Or your last three visits. I don't care, I don't want to hear it, and I'm not going to do anything about it. Maybe you should just stop coming. That would work out better for both of us.
25. Learn simple math. Please. It is not my job as a server to teach you the difference between a half and a quarter. If you don't know which one is bigger or what they are, you may want to reconsider going back to Kindergarten, or asking the six year old at the table next to you.

"What if you don't care what anyone before has said, and you don't care what anyone else has experienced and you just rely on what you know to be true for yourself? I couldn't care less if anyone could/would qualify what I know, they can suck it."

A trigger of remembrance

For many years the numbers 11:11 have been mysteriously appearing to people all over the world. Often appearing on digital clocks, the sightings of 11:11 tend to occur during times of heightened awareness, having a most powerful effect on the people involved. This causes a reactivation of our cellular memory banks. There's a stirring deep inside, a hint of remembrance of something long forgotten.

The appearance of 11:11 is also a powerful confirmation that we are on the right track, aligned with our highest Truth. Throughout the years, I have personally encountered thousands of people all over the world who, have experienced repeated sightings of 11:11. They all want to know what is happening to them and why. What does the 11:11 signify?

11:11 is a pre-encoded trigger placed into our cellular memory banks prior to our descent into matter which, when activated, signifies that our time of completion is near. This refers to the completion of duality. When the 11:11 appears to you, it is your wake-up call. A direct channel opens up between you and the Invisible. When this happens, it is time to reflect on whatever you are doing for a moment and Look Larger. A transfer is in position. You can enter the Greater Reality if you wish pray or meditate and seed your future and also, you can be seeded by the Invisible. You can ask for help in some specific area of your life or simply listen quietly and receive a revelation.

The appearance of 11:11 is an always beneficial act of Divine Intervention telling you that it is time to take a good look around you and see what is really happening. It's time to pierce the veils of illusion that keep us bound to an unreal world. You have been chosen, because you are ready, to step into the Greater Reality. To lead the way for others into a new way of living, into a Greater Love. To ascend from
duality into Oneness.

The 11.11 is the bridge our vitality and oneness. It is our pathway into the postive unknown and beyond.

The Doorway the 11:11

This can presently be perceived

as a crack between two worlds.

It is like a bridge

which has the inherent potential

of linking together

two very different spirals of energy.

As we unite together as One,

bringing together our fragments of the key,

we not only create the key,

but we make visible the Doorway.

Thus this bridge functions

as an invisible door

or a doorway into the Invisible realm.

The 11:11 is the bridge

To an entirely different spiral of evolution.

The symbol of 11:11 was pre-encoded into our cellular memory banks long ago.

Returning our cycle of incarnations upon the Earth. The 11.11 has rested dormantly within us since that faraway position under time-release mechanization, combined with sealed orders which would only open when the 11.11 was fully activated. It has been gently sleeping, awaiting the moment of triggering. And now the 11:11 is finally activated...

11:11 is the pre-encoded trigger

And the key to the mysteries of the universe and beyond.

Some of you have recognized this symbol as something of significance, yet have been unaware of its true meaning. With the advent of digital clocks many years ago, the significance of 11:11 began to make itself felt, often appearing on clocks at times of accelerated awareness. For those of you who have know that 11:11 was something special, we now need you to come forth into positions of leadership. For you are important parts of the key.

I believe we are or connected to an invisible spiritual thread, through which we can transmit information, thoughts, and feelings to each other, even if we never met. Use this channel to send help, prayers, love and positivity to humanity and all our animals.

To my amazement the tragedy in New York and Washington happen on the 11 of September, flight number 11, and the twin towers from a distance looked like the number 11. So please pay attention to the line in my article that says that it is time to take a good look around you and what is really happening.
