Happy Birthday, Sweet Mama

Today is May 20, 2015. It is 3:54 AM. I am wide awake. Twenty days into my blogging on process, I have posted more this month than I have in the last year and a half! The more I unpack ‘process,’ the deeper I plunge into mystery! It is like snorkeling near the Captain Cook monument in Hawaii. Oh, the joy! The color! The variety of life beneath the deep blue sea.

But seriously, why am I awake? For one thing I remember today is the 100th anniversary of my mother’s birth. It makes me thankful she had me late in life so I can still be young! Imagine, if I had been born when she was 18?

Happy Birthday, Sweet Mama. I love you! 


That’s really not why I am awake. I am stretching my blogging muscles. I am getting addicted to writing endorphins. Whether anyone reads it or not is perfectly fine. I am digging into the process. It is good. It is good like ripping out an old flower bed and replanting it with fresh new blossoms is good. At the end of the day your muscles ache, but the sense of accomplishment is like having all the gifts wrapped for Christmas a month in advance! Four weeks from now when the geraniums and petunias are established and flourishing you’ll sit in your garden and sip iced tea with your BFF and it will be good. Oh, so good!

But, like unpeeling the onion, that’s really not why I am awake. Lying in bed I was trying to figure out how not to internalize worry. When something is bothering you deep in your soul, it seriously can’t be good for your body. How do you let it go?

It was then that I turned my mind to the Possibility Prayer.

Mind! Awaken to Possibility!

As I pondered the backstory on this one line alone, honey glory oozed into all the achy crevasses of my soul. I felt rebirth and then I recognized the irony!

I have been placing my hands around my head in prayer commanding my mind to awaken with possibility and what happens?

I’m awake at 3 something in the morning for now three days in a row and I don’t regret one minute of this sleeplessness because I am awakening at a very deep level!

I am awakening to the healing process. And that’s not all. I can think of a dozen directions I could go next in unpacking this one line alone.

I stop in the reveal process to rejoice! Isn’t this what I asked for?

So how do you let go of those nagging worries? Shift! Get that Possibility Prayer flowing! Put your hands on your dome piece and call for your mind to awaken!

Mind! Awaken to Possibility!

Watch what happens! Nagging worries evaporate. You sense restoration flowing deep within your soul, your body.

You simply can’t entertain worry and possibility at the same time!

One idea and then I have to go–I could catch a bus to the world famous Pike Place Market and photograph possibility! Oh, wouldn’t that be glorious? Would you like that?
