Another good quote for the day:

The reason things always work out for the best, , is because this is actually the highest of all spiritual laws.

Any apparent exceptions are simply evidence that work is still in progress.

Celebrating the Jewish New Year 5775

Posted Friday, September 26th, 2014. Filed Under Voices of wisdom | Leave a Comment

As this time of the year approaches I sit down to look at my year and reflect on it. Last year was a difficult year – the year of the liar and lawyer for me. While it proved to have really tough moments I didn’t think I’d make it through it and I did. And in fact I moved through some things from my past that I have wanted to deal with. I say our gifts from G-d come in the most interesting ways.

This year has not only been tough for me, I have seen my friends go through different and challenging moments for them.

When we talk about our year I know for me it has been a transformational and life-altering year. I am stronger than ever, physically, emotionally and spiritually. As with the video I posted, I had some failures and really dark moments AND some very successful moments. What was so incredible was seeing who was really there for me in my darkest times: my family, certain friends and people who I would have not known or thought yet they were there to pick me up on my sad or hard days.

From this journey also came an awareness of the people who are all about them/takers, who do not speak their truth and those who are plain liars. Being a natural giver and sometimes ‘saver’ to a fault, this was disheartening for I was forced to see people in a different light. Some were easy to let go of in my life and others I still grapple with a decision – do I want to be surrounded by this person or not?

As I sat yesterday in the Rosh Hashanah service we said a prayer that reminds me what the Jewish High Holidays are all about and where I want to go in order to bring in full joy, peace and abundance for 2014/15 year that not just me but all of us are so deserving to receive.

I want to share the end of this prayer which is first said silently and then aloud as a congregation: The Amidah:

“O Lord,
Guard my tongue from evil and my lips from speaking guile,
And to those who slander me, let me give no heed.
May my soul be humble and forgiving unto all.
Open Thou my heart, O Lord, unto Thy sacred Law,
That thy statutes I may know and all Thy truths pursue.
Bring to naught designs of those who seek to do me ill:
Speedily defeat their aims and thwart their purposes
For thine own sake, for Thine own power,
For thy holiness and Law.
That Thy loved ones be delivered,
Answer me, O Lord, and save with Thy redeeming power.”

When I read this I thought to myself, this is where I desire to go to — forgiveness. I know the forgiveness is more for me than the person I aim my forgiveness at. It does not mean I am not empowered. I will continue to stand up for what I believe in. What I will do is stand my truth and not be concerned with the person who wishes to destroy me or take me down.

As for the takers in the world, liars and people who do not speak their truth — I can forgive. I am not sure, again, that I want them in my life. I want people who are authentic and true friends. I’d rather hear the truth even if it’s not easy to hear and may hurt for at least we can work through it or in the least agree to disagree and go our separate ways. I much prefer that to the person who looks me in the face and smiles like everything is ok and it is not.

I want to end with the TUT message from today:

“What wouldn’t you give to live, love, and be happy, deliriously happy, forevermore?

Well, that’s just it, you needn’t give anything, . Just decide to live, love, and be happy, deliriously happy, from this moment forward.

And I shall provide,
The Universe”

Just do it.

I want to wish everyone a wonderful weekend. I hope that you can walk away with something personal for your life and somehow I have made it better.

All my love,

At first when I heard about the tragedy I was furious. What kind of world do we live in? I wanted to shake people and say, wake up we cannot continue to live like this: fear and anger and mistrust. And then I received emails over the next few days and read a articles about heroes and how the people of Boston and those attending dealt with the tragedy.

I want to share a number of these with you.

In the morning after the Boston bombings I received my daily “angel” message:

“In the adventure of life, at first, no one gets it. So help is sent.
Then, over time, some start getting it, but no one lives it. So more help is sent.
Soon, some start living it and even more start getting it, and an upward spiral ensues.
Eventually, of course, everyone is getting it and living it… But the earth’s not there yet.
So the question to ask yourself, Sandra, is, “Who shall I help next?”

You so get it,
The Universe

I realize that the souls like me see the world differently and know we do not have to suffer any longer to live a good life. We are deserving. I struggled with the question: at what point as human beings does our love for one another become greater than the hatred, fear and anger we have for one another? This is true on an individual level as it is on a world level. When I read this note it reminded me to be patient and compassionate and not everyone is where I am at. For me that means I can live a life filled with love and compassion for my fellow human beings and see that the collective conscious is changing.

I then read the paper the next morning and saw the picture of the eight-year-old boy who was one of three to die at the scene. The sign read: No more hurting people – Peace. Of course this drew so much attention. But do people really get it. This little boy stood for hours likely with that sign before the incident. Did anyone go up to him and say, yes we agree. It took his death for the world to look up and pay attention. This boy was a true angel who chose this path so we can remember to treat our fellow human beings with love and compassion. The idea of suffering and the need to suffer no longer holds value. Again, this belief will depend where you are in your self-awareness journey and how evolved you are. I want to thank eight-year-old Martin Richard for his presence in this human world and know his soul has gone on to a better place. His family lost an angel but the world gained one.

Love and compassion. That is what ensued immediately following the blasts. People like 53-year-old Carlos Arrendondo ran to help a man whose legs had been blown off. His actions saved the life of that runner. The people of Boston pulled together in a way that we as humans seem to do when there is tragedy. The advanced trauma people were amazing. I love to see this coming together. My only question is why do we have to wait for tragedy to happen for our better selves to emerge? We are moving from a “me” to “we” society and I believe that more and more people will begin to live this way. I can tell you from a health perspective it is much healthier on your body when you live in love versus anger and fear.

One of the articles I read interviewed a man returning home from the race. This is what he had to say about the Boston incident: “Everyone we met, from police officers to volunteers and mostly the common citizen, was nothing short of awesome. They’re a formidable people, the Yanks. I grew up next to them (in a border town) but I’ve never been more impressed.”

Another interesting fact in one article talked about the mindset of a runner. The Japanese-born (and part-time American) author Haruki Murakami wrote in his best-selling memoir, What I Talk About When I Talk About Running,”Most runners run not because they want to live longer, but because they want to live life to the fullest.

And so the running will continue. The people of Boston will not be brought down. I heard that the Toronto Marathon organizers have put some more security measures in place yet the race will go on.

The last article I want to share was one I received the following day and I loved it. Amy Ahlers, The Wake-Up Call Coach, wrote a beautiful piece:

subject line: Boston, Fear, Love & Kindness (Wake-Up Call Wednesday)
Dear Sandra,

I had an entirely different email I was ready to send you today. I had it all prepped to go and then the tragic events at the Boston Marathon occurred and I felt inspired and compelled to send this to you instead.

I just left the East Coast, was actually boarding my flight home at JFK when the news of the bombings broke. I love the East Coast so much and am sending all the love and light I can muster.

When events like this occur, it is so difficult to process and we can begin to lose hope and faith in humanity. What I do know is that there is more goodness, more light and more love on this planet than anything else. As Patton Oswalt said in his brilliant facebook post:

The vast majority stands against that darkness and, like white blood cells attacking a virus, they dilute and weaken and eventually wash away the evil doers and, more importantly, the damage they wreak. This is beyond religion or creed or nation. We would not be here if humanity were inherently evil. We’d have eaten ourselves alive long ago.

So when you spot violence, or bigotry, or intolerance or fear or just garden-variety misogyny, hatred or ignorance, just look it in the eye and think, “The good outnumber you, and we always will.”

So here is what I say we do. Let’s find a way to bring more goodness and kindness into the world TODAY. I challenge you to commit 5 or more acts of kindness today. They don’t need to be big or earth shattering…here’s some ideas:

-let someone go in front of you in traffic or the grocery store
-play peek-a-boo with a crying baby that needs distraction
-pay the toll for the person behind you
-call your mom or aunt or sister or friend and tell them you love them
-take your child to the park, leave your phone at home, and swing on the swings
-take your pooch for a big hike and watch him strut his stuff
-say something kind to yourself that you’ve been longing to hear

Won’t you join me? Let me know your 5+ acts of kindness on my Facebook page and let’s inspire one another. Together we will bring more love and goodness to the world to remind us all that humanity to good.

Sending you light,

I want to end with a question and one you can ponder: What kind of world do you want to live in, one of fear and anger or one of love?

I choose the latter.

If you are not where I am that is OK. Honour where you are at. Question it and see if this is truly who you are or is it the story you have bought into.

I will continue to bring light to this world.

This weekend take time to see what good you can offer: opening a door, smiling, giving an honest heart-felt compliment, receive love from others who want to share and always be true to you.

All my love,

This is my daily TUT message sent to me on Thursday, Dec. 13, 2012:

Words of Inspiration – TUT messages

While it’s often fashionable to dwell upon what might have been, Sandra, what’s usually overlooked is that really and truly, it couldn’t have.

Because, invariably, any romanticized versions of how things “might have been,” are based upon fictionalized versions of the past.

The Universe

Love this!

The odd thing about the often long and lonely path of life, Sandra, is that when you get to the end of it and look back, you’ll find that it was neither of these.

The Universe

The only economy that matters, Sandra, that can actually put money in your purse, wallet, or the cracks of your sofa, is the economy created by your thoughts, words, and baby steps.

Every day, someone new, near you, becomes a millionaire.

The Universe

The best thing about every financial meltdown, Sandra, global or otherwise, is learning that whatever was lost, can be recreated.

Hold on loosely,
The Universe

Do we need challenges in our life?

Posted Friday, June 3rd, 2011. Filed Under My Daily Dose | Leave a Comment

I loved this TUT message sent to me. It reminds me of how we often learn through our challenges — and remember who we are and our brilliance of who we are and what we can accomplish:

How adventurous would life be, Sandra, if you were “challenge free”? If you had the perfect body, perfect self-esteem, everyone adored you, and you won the lottery every Sunday?


Now what if, painful as they may temporarily be, you could choose a life during which challenges might arise whenever your thinking needed expansion, on the sole condition that every one of them could be overcome no matter how daunting they may at first seem?

Everything makes you more,
The Universe

Thoughts become things… choose the good ones! ®

I receive a tut message every day. This came today and I love it:

The “right” circumstances, people, and opportunities are just like “good” ideas – they come to you fastest, once you relax.
