I Really Like My Life

Every once in awhile the thought that I really like my life floats through my mind. "Sitting" with this thought for a bit makes me feel that yes, I really do despite all the craziness of the world, despite all the fear and hate that is being generated. I sometimes start listing what I like about my life-- I suppose a kind of gratitude list.

So, here goes, some of the things I like about my life: 

I like my family and friends (and love many of them).

I like where I live, beautiful Vermont, in the area known as the Upper Valley encompassing Vermont and New Hampshire straddling the Connecticut River.

I like many of the people I have met here.

I like that there are so many interesting things to do. 

I like (no love) the work that I do, that it helps people find their way, helps them find or stay on their paths.

I like that I was able to create, along with my book designer and photographer, a beautiful book. 

I like that I am able to communicate daily with my angels and guides, to have their guidance and wisdom.

I like that I am able to take care of myself, and that I am able to get myself out of bed in the morning and put myself to bed at night. 

I like that there are many good "regular" and "alternative" health care practitioners that I can access to take care of my health.

I like that there are so many food cooperatives in VT and NH. And, one of the yarn companies in VT (Green Mountain Spinnery) is a cooperative. Don't know how many other companies in the area are cooperatives.

I like that so many creatives live here crafting everything from food, to tinctures and salves, to art. 

I most likely could go on for quiet some time about what I like about my life and where I live.

Energetic Roots

Meditations often ask us to imagine energetic roots growing deep into mother earth. In fact, someone I consulted that I do a short walking meditation each morning that involves seeing my energetic roots growing into the core of mother earth to send the golden healing light moving down through me into the earth and the healing earth energy moving upwards into the universe above me. I imagine the 2 energies communicating to each other as well as to me. 

I once read that trees (and I imagine all plants) communicate with each other through their roots. I think that, if trees and other plants communicate with each other through their root systems, then it is surely possible that we communicate through our energetic root systems to other people and, what the heck, to animals and plants. 

Assuming this is true, is this part of the reason that, on the most basic of levels, there is no barrier, that everything flows through? I think that this is certainly something to contemplate.

What do you think?
