I had quite the adventure today as this was my first hiking adventure since Sedona last September. I recorded myself several times to document this but all I could seem to focus on was the MOSQUITOS!!!!
Mind you I have never put myself in front of the camera intending to post, this was just for me, initially. Then I decided that I am going to put myself out there just because. So here I am.
I woke up in time to go to either yoga class, but deep down I couldn’t figure out which one I felt like going to. I really wanted to run my errands and I had to work at 4pm. So being that I just woke up and couldn’t make any decisions for myself first thing, I went to my pendulum to ask which class I am going to.
I wake it up and ask, it proceeds to tell me that I am not going to either. I ask are you just being intuitive, and the reply was yes. So I decided to run my errands. I get up shower and go.
As I drive to my first destination, I enjoy the music playing in my car and the sun that is shining bright through my sunroof. I feel as though I’m living heaven on earth. So peaceful and at ease.
I pull in and park my car and realize that I will still have time to get to the next yoga class when I am done. I get out of my car and smell some weird rubber burning smell. I look around and notice they are doing construction. But it didn’t seem as if it was that. I walk around to the other side of my car and didn’t smell anything. I retrace my steps to the drivers side again and stuck my nose in the tires to see if it was my car. Sure enough, it was my rear tire. I decided to go in and get what I needed and then come back and regroup.
When I came back outside I googled burning rubber smell in tire. It came up with all these things that were not something a new car owner would want to hear. So I immediately called the dealership and told them I don’t feel comfortable driving around in my car with whatever may be happening. Greg, was on the rcvg end and graciously got me within 15 mins.
As I sat on the bench outside of the dealership I began to realize that my pendulum knew. And as I pondered the intuitive aspect of myself and the pendulum, I see my first butterfly of the season. Blessed to witness nature and all of it’s creations.
Greg came out with the mechanic and told me that it was a slide that bound. So they loosened it up in the brake. Great, done. I go in to grab my keys and get the paperwork done and this little lady comes racing up to me…
“OMG, you bought my car!!! You know the color of that car is called sandy beach?”
I was slightly confused for a minute and then when she said that about the color I realized this is the previous owner, and how cool because I live on the beach. She begins to tell me how she named her car “GIGI” short for Great Granma. my jaw just about fell out of my skin, I named her Golden Goddess and my dad calls her GIGI for short.
I must mention what this lovely lady looked like. She’s a granma, wearing flip flops and yoga capri pants. She had a tank top on and a hot pink long cardigan and her hair was white, and dyed it purple.
I thought to myself, of course you were the previous owner…I am so grateful that it was this lovely funky woman. She was the sole owner until I purchased it. With less than 50k miles, she said don’t you just love her, we didn’t really go anywhere. She will take great care of you.
I asked her if I can take a picture of her with the car. She loved it. At our parting, I had a citrine crystal in my car and I felt I needed to give it to her. We hugged and we left each other with the greatest feeling. Literally made my day and hers.
Thank you so much Bobby, for approaching me. So grateful I met you, you have a beautiful soul and spirit!
My pendulum knew something was going to happen that I wouldn’t make it to yoga. And I am so glad this was the reason.
Today is mothers day and as I was driving to go pick up lunch for my mother and I, I notice how green everything is.
The scent of Earth permeated the air. The grass uncut in luscious greens. It is so beautiful I thought to myself. I saw a man cutting grass as I approached him and rolled down my window, just to take in the scent of fresh cut grass; which is my favorite. I wallow in it as I drive by breathing in deep.
The greenery is breathtaking and when you are somewhere that doesn’t have as much greenery you can really appreciate it when it comes to Spring. Everything is alive and growing after the cold winters of white.
I would like nothing more than not to work tonight and just sit in dirt and smell it. I went to the store to go buy my mom some flowers today and when I got out of the car I began walking on black mulch. It too smelled heavenly. I would have liked to just stand there for as long as time permitted to just take it in. I did stand there for a minute and took it in but I would have liked a little longer.
The scents of Spring are finally here. The blooming trees and plants are beginning to grow and it is majestic. There is nothing in the Universe quite like Spring. I am so beyond grateful to be able to witness this Spring here in Maine for the first time in about 20 years.
This is my favorite time of year, one because it is my birthday time and two because it is so beautiful to witness the growth of Mother Nature. So much gratitude, thank you Mother Earth for providing this season to us all, so we can all appreciate the beauty you have to offer.
I want to give back to those that risk their lives everyday so that I may do everything that I do. I can only imagine what our military families go through each and every day.
My story, As a kid I did not want to join the military because all I knew is that they made you cry and break you down. I wanted nothing to do with that. I was bullied throughout my school career; I certainly did not want to relive any of that. As time went on, I realized how much our military really does for us and I wanted to join because I wanted to help. By the time I decided this I was in my early 30’s and I had only a small window of opportunity. The person I was with was adamant on me not doing such things and at that time I was not capable of standing up and just doing it.
In time I found myself meditating often and found reiki. I met a woman whom I had a session and it changed my world. I knew then that I wanted what she had. I contacted her and in months to come I became a reiki master.
I wanted to give back and now I can.
I especially wanted to help active military and veterans, along with their families because I understand that what they go through isn’t just physical it’s emotional and even spiritual. The things they don’t share, eats them from the inside out and this affects family members as well.
Even though I have not been personally affected by this, I know millions are. I want to help.
I am offering to 3 individuals 3 reiki sessions for 3 weeks consecutively. Must be active, veteran, or immediate family member.
If you would like to be considered, please visit my website www.budderflie.com and contact page. Fill out the form and in the message space, please provide what is going on that you would like to receive reiki. Also please let me know how you would prefer to be contacted, via email, text or phone call. If out of country I will email, or we can zoom or skype. Also, if you are chosen, please let me know if I can announce your name online that you have been chosen. If anonymous then I will use your zip code. Upon being chosen I will ask for military ID.
I will choose 3 people at the end of this month. May 31st,
If you are not chosen, don’t worry I would like to see how
this goes and do this again, monthly.
It’s been 5 days since being home and I sort of feel lighter. lol. I have changed the way I eat. I go to yoga in the morning and then I come home and have a protein shake with all my vitamins in it (kale, organic protein powder, fruits and berries, cucumber, carrots, my Green Vibrance powdered vitamins). Then around noon I’m hungry so sometimes I’ll make 5 eggs, because that’s totally perfect for me, or I just picked up my chicken from trader joe’s and I will make plain tacos with avocado on a corn tortilla. To me, they are very yummy.
I used to eat with sauces and dressings but now I don’t care too much for the extras. I believe, in my own humble opinion, that whatever you eat should taste amazing without all the condiments.
And then when I leave for work I will eat either tacos or my fake delicious meatless burger patty atop spinach, mozz cheese, tomatoes, and cucumbers. And it is good! So are the tacos, but when I make the salad yummmm.
When I get snacky, I eat a granola bar or pineapple or both. But I completely took out fried foods and I am trying not to go out to eat everyday like I was doing previous. It’s too easy to have someone make your food and pick it up. But for me that means I’m eating tons of pizza or sandwiches. Those are really delicious but really heavy.
I am tired of feeling heavy; and that is why I am eating in. And this is how I eat in. I am not a big candy eater, or sugar fanatic but occasionally I will crave sweets. I won’t go out of my way to buy them, ever. But if they are wherever I am in the moment I may or may not buy something sweet and delicious.
When I go out for dinner and not pick up, I tend to look at the dessert menu first only because it is rare for me to go out to dinner solo, so when I do go out and treat myself I will partake in the dessert action. However I will eat dessert first and dinner after, I just take half of my dinner home for another meal! hahaha
This is my first week starting over and so far I feel good and I get hungry more often but I snack on light healthy stuff, because that’s all I have. I do not even have any bread in the house. Some days, I wish I did but I’m glad I don’t because I know how bread makes me feel after eating it.
I work in a restaurant of fried foods and bread. I stopped eating all of that and the snacking at work because it makes me feel yucky. And what I definitely know is that the way I am eating now is way better than what I was doing. As I sit here and eat the leftover coconut cream pie my coworker gave me!!!
