May we practice gratitude. May we fill our hearts and resonate with the grace of God's gifts, past present and future. Honoring the Light within while expecting Miracles...~ Karena Virginia


God's goodness is something one cannot learn to know at once; it takes time to understand it. But little actions of kindness which we receive from those around us we can know, and we can be thankful if we want to be. In this way we develop gratefulness in our nature, and express it in our thought, speech, and action as an exquisite form of beauty. Karena Virginia


The great Sufi poet Sa'di teaches gratefulness as being the means of attracting that favor, forgiveness, and mercy of God upon us in which is the salvation of our soul. There is much in life that we can be grateful for, in spite of all the difficulties and troubles of life. Sa'di says, "The sun and moon, and the rain and clouds, all are busy to prepare your food for you..." ~ Karena Virginia


If we answer every little deed of kindness with appreciation, we develop in our nature the spirit of gratefulness; and by learning this we rise to that state where we begin to realize God's goodness toward us, and for this we can never be grateful enough to God's divine compassion. ~ Karena Virginia


Gratefulness in the character is like fragrance in the flower. A person however learned and qualified in his life's work, in whom gratefulness is absent, is devoid of that beauty of character which makes the personality fragrant. ~ Karena Virginia


Another practice is to close the eyes and visualize, feeling grateful for things in advance. Don't let your mind creep in and start to make plans. The goal is just to allow the experience of gratitude. Here is a visualization exercise that I love: Picture yourself in the most beautiful environment. Look around you at everything you have been blessed with. Include your greatest dream, and imagine it with you in your beautiful environment. ~ Karena Virginia


While sitting in our warm beds, or finding a cozy spot to sit in our home, we can be silent, breathe and feel grateful. Here are some beautiful affirmations that I love to use: ~ The Universe always provides me with everything I need. ~ My life is full of blessings, and my gratitude grows everyday. ~ I am grateful for all the insights I am receiving daily. ~ Karena Virginia


We can use a gratitude journal, simply writing a few things we are grateful for in that moment. Consciously practicing gratitude opens powerful pathways of grace. When we sit in the attitude of gratitude, we find that abundance begins to build in our lives in the most miraculous ways. ~ Karena Virginia


If we want our days to be aligned with own highest aspirations, the way to begin is being grateful for them in advance. We can wake with giving thanks for simple things such as the ability to breathe freely, the greatness of being alive, our families, our beautiful friends, and all the goodness around us. ~ Karena Virginia


Each morning is a gift and each sunrise is a powerful time for prayer and contemplation. In the hours before dawn, the sun's rays begin to hit the earth in a rising perpendicular angle, and seem to amplify whatever it is we are focusing on, carrying it into our world. ~ Karena Virginia


The attitude of gratitude is one of the most amazing tools for co-creating with Spirit. We can give thanks for our most heartfelt dreams before they are in our lives. This form of gratitude shows the universe that we are ready for the miracles that are on their way. ~Karena Virginia


The full moon is a lovely reminder to cultivate gratitude for the wonders of each moment, and also to release anything that is not serving us. Many of us are experiencing things in our lives that are falling away naturally. But sometimes when we think of letting go, we can become fearful and feel a sense of loss. Our initial reaction can be to cling more tightly, even when the Universe is patiently opening the way. When this happens it is an opportunity to shift into gratitude and thank the Universe. We can hold gratitude for the way these things served at one time in our journey, and also have gratitude for how we are being called to release now. Instead of resisting or blaming, we choose forgiveness. ~ Karena Virginia


Don’t grieve. Anything you lose comes round in another form. ~Rumi


To KNOW. You are LOVED. Healing is so close. Miracles are everywhere.Some go unnoticed, some are advertised to the world. It does not matter. We just trust. I ask you to trust that there are so many miracles waiting for you. Expect a miracle today. Expect a large miracle. Expect a small miracle. Blessed are those who expect favor and goodness, for Spirit meets us at our level of expectation. ~ Karena Virginia


We are all vessels of love. The Divine flows through all of our hearts and hands. ~ Karena Virginia


A Miracle is simply a new awareness that a dimension outside ourphysical bodies is always working towards serving our highest good. A miracle is a shift in perspective from fear to love. A miracle is a gift from beyond that helps us recognize how very loved we are. ~Karena Virginia


When the heart gets into prayer, every beat of the heart creates a miracle. ~ Yogi Bhajan


Let's remember that we are the light of the universe. You are the light of the universe. And together we are all the light of the universe. ~Karena Virginia


Our Aura: It's an energy field and it's extremely magnetic. When we have an expansive aura, everything and anything is possible. We just draw in magic and we just draw in goodness. ~ Karena Virginia


Our Aura: When we have an expansive aura, the universe is attracted to that love and that light that surrounds our physical bodies. ~ Karena Virginia

靈魂書寫(Soul Writing):享受在自由的身心靈自修的靈修裡 ( Free Spirit Voyage / Formation )

靈魂書寫(Soul Writing):
享受在自由的身心靈自修的靈修裡 
(Free Spirit Voyage / Formation )

談談於我喜悅的事,就是自由自在的身心靈探索跟閱讀學習,比起很多對身心靈跟靈魂議題有深入愛好的人喜歡參與工作坊,我可用的時間跟別人不同,彈性也不同,此外喜歡一對一自由彈性時間學習,而不是團體學習,此外沒有一定追隨綁約的上師或是固定不變的信仰,我的信仰就是純粹的光和愛,與自由的在這個二元的物質世界探索光與愛的正面或是反面。

因為時間彈性與多數人不同,往往不適合我參與類似工作坊的團體學習,此外團體這調性也不一定適合我,因為我其實獨立思考外,愛問問題,方方面面都熱愛自由,包含靈修與信仰。我始終信仰並實踐自由,方方面面,於每一件事上忠於自由。

我偏好大量閱讀新世紀書籍和聽身心靈領域的演講影片,例如kundalini Yoga和各式各樣的冥想方式,還有聽很多瑜珈大師或是當代開悟大師如艾克哈特·æ‰˜å‹’的演講,還有賀氏書屋(Hay House)身心靈大師講者作者如Louise Hay, Dr. Wayne Dyer, Sonia Choquet和Robert Holden的演講或是書籍文字資料,以及許多智者大師如一些有名的瑜珈大師的演講,或是像當代很多天使跟高靈如賽斯、歐林等等(Seth, Abraham, Orin....)的充滿智慧光明與愛的傳訊,當代智者大師無數......

不管是身心靈領域或是藝術領域,我不方便出去上課配合團體時間,也不喜歡上課的形式跟束縛時,我通常都上時間上富有彈性的網路課程(E COURSE),就是有空的時候就看網路課程影片或文字資料學習。

總之,每當我有一點靜心時間,或是夜晚睡前,我就深深地享受浸瀅在自由的身心靈學習探索跟靈修裡,不追隨服從特定上師信仰,但發現所有的身心靈大師跟天使高靈分享的智慧核心必然十分相似,分享的都是同樣的智慧,而且比起久遠的經典符合當時的歷史人文環境下採用的說法,其實當代大師高靈的智慧更趨近現代的環境。

我從小就非常非常熱愛靈修,只是以前是在安逸無事時清修,現在是在扎實的環境與養分豐富的身心靈沃土裡,難行能行,克苦耐勞修心,以我最愛的自由的方式,實修實做自修,同時最重要的做自己和完成自己,忠於自己獨一無二的靈魂屬性,不做他人的靈魂。

Much Love, 
Morrisa

自由書寫(Gratitude Journal):輕安自在(Free From Relationships, Holiday Transportation And Family Gatherings)


自由書寫(Free Journal):
輕安自在(Free From Relationships, Holiday Transportation And Family Gatherings)

談談感恩的事,智者身心靈大師和成功的人都談到感恩倍增跟轉化擴散自身能量的力量。

其實,從2013å¹´èµ·,因為我媽本來就會隔週會北上來幫忙,我弟偶爾會上台北,所以我們不再需要於年節回台東娘家。

因為我媽一個人坐火車,比起三個人買機票人擠人經濟實惠又便捷可行得多,而且其實我多年來在娘家已經沒有什麼私人物品,而且本來就是世界人,其實不會覺得想要回娘家,見娘家親戚鄰居反而是壓力,也不會想念台東,因為我環遊過世界,更偏好到世界上旅行(*只想出遠過旅行去),因為娘家的環境主要是媽媽弟弟跟一隻柴犬在使用,而且小善帶出門搭機不方便,在娘家我們出門也不方便,因為沒有自己的交通工具。於是,逢年過節,我不需要再考慮煩惱任何訂票交通等等問題。***總之遇親戚只是心理壓力非樂事。

雖然說,類似中秋節聽到跟小善同年對面高分貝的妹妹在跟家人高聲聊天,烤肉之類的家族聚會,我不能夠否認,我會開起一點音樂,盡量不要聽到,而且我知道我們這樣長期照顧行動不方便的孩子,自家很緊密團結,相對不適合交通外出聚會(連上樓都不太方便),也真的不會想要聚會多聊天,做事生活休息和照顧好家人比較實際。總之遇親戚只是身心壓力非做休閒娛樂想。

我不能否認像這種中秋節的中國人重視團聚的場景,我會覺得有一點跟多數人都不同的反差,有點安靜,有一丁點反差下的安靜寂寞。因為我們本來就較不適合交通外出聚會,也同時無意願聚會聊天。特別是另一半本身很安靜少話,孩子又是非口語型的,寂寞我偶然也有那麼一丁點(only a teeny-tiny little bit & nothing but a difference & contrast to the majority of people ),在中秋節這種中國人愛親友群聚的反差下。不過,反之我們本然不適合也不愛聚會本然是事實啊。總之遇親戚是身心壓力(身體上在外和在他人前照顧孩子更累,心理上也比在家或ㄧ家三口自由行更累)。

不過,記得有一年,大概是還沒有孩子以前,我們曾經到婆家家族親戚的頂樓(6f無電梯)去露天烤肉,其實不是只有認識的親戚,還有大半我們不認識他們認識的人,所以其實也是現身一下待不久,然後一樣有點無聊外加不自在,因為我們是非愛聚會型偏好熟悉的人。而且多年後小善行動不便,我們基本上不可能再爬上那沒電梯的六樓,跟大半不認識的人聚會。更何況那時是新婚還沒孩子,現在是結婚滿十一年長照九年多和天長地久,在家長照都很辛苦,夫妻關係經營在長照下,都是很不容易維繫好的,我不可能再喜歡參與婆家家族聚會而以為樂,方方面面而言,那顯然是壓力而不是休閒娛樂。

然後,假想是跟其他人在平面樓層聚會,就算想起來會比較熱鬧,其實也是假想,那中間要閒聊的話,不管是我們說什麼(另一半基本上就不聊天),還是聽別人說他們家的事,我覺得反而是心理負擔。

反而終歸,一樣任何年節假日,「自由行」自家開車帶著善善到平面庭園式餐廳自由飲食遊玩,永遠最符合我們的調性跟需要。停在自家們口的平面車庫的休旅車,是我們最便捷的親友,大自然也是最無語無負擔,不需要多說多聽一句的摯友。

比起烤肉聚會聊天,彈彈鋼琴閱讀本書,寫寫作於我們可能更輕安自在。

日日如一日。

基本上不親友聚會的小善,日日年節非年節都開心得很,就是日日如一日,沒有什麼年節之分,也沒什麼聚會之分。

我感恩,我們日日如一日不需要舟車勞頓,訂票花錢,年節返鄉。

我感恩,颱風天家人平安在家閱讀休息與從事興趣。

我感恩,家人都不是像颱風還必須冒險外出工作的很多行業的人,我們可以平安在家裡。

我感恩,家裡的車和房是我們的兩個家,固定的跟行動的。還有那片安睡的床。

我感恩,年節不必不自由自在的聚會聊天跟交通往返。

歐普拉說,每天至少真的寫下午五件感恩的事,感恩是強力的自身能量磁場轉化動能,會吸引更多值得感恩的好事來臨。

感恩平安,輕安自在,不熱鬧,自由無擾,無牽掛無負累。

Sending Peace, Love & Light To The Entire Universe,

靈魂寫作(Soul Writing):最感恩自己 (Self Gratitude)


靈魂寫作(Soul Writing):
最感恩自己 (Self Gratitude)

在練習感恩時,後來覺察到我把深深感恩我自己放在最後。我其實應該優先最深的感恩自己。

即使我的靈魂選了這高階題目來修,也要我的身體願意配合吃苦耐勞負壓。

其實,這些年,其實最苦和耐受最大壓力的一個人當然無疑是我無他,還有我媽,一直持續都有一對一長帶,特別是心理情緒壓力與未來規劃上。另一半在辛苦時,通常都是有我在看頭看尾,和從旁協助,所以壓力不會大到那樣一個人承受。

不管是身體上或是身心靈上,都時常是七手八腳,和一心多用的那種極大的壓力下,不足為外人道,是神經全都都繃緊,很難放鬆一時的工作。長年下來,就是身心靈的日日時時高階課程。全身肌肉自然日益訓練壯大結實......

如果人要學習感恩,其實第一個需要感恩的是自己的身心靈,願意配合自己的靈魂功課的難度高度。感恩和愛自己,懂得底線跟界線的人,於是才不會把自己當成受害者。

優先感恩我自己,才有能力談到感恩。然後,簡單生活與人際,築樂而明白自己的需要跟生命目的(價值完成),不再以負壓耐苦為模式。

靈魂書寫(Soul Writing): 時時與你的靈魂校準(Soul Alignment)

靈魂寫作(Soul Writing):靈魂校準(Soul Alignment)

近來睡前總是在聽高靈Abraham談吸引力法則的演講,其實許多身心靈大師與天使高靈們(如賽斯)都在談很相似的核心議題-與你的靈魂校準。

Abraham常在談時時與你的靈魂校準

對於你靈魂的最大益處跟最高目的來說,你時時都必須注意你的感覺跟情緒,因為祂是你生命本身的直覺導航跟重要的內在感官。

凡於你感覺對的好的那些時刻,它符合你的靈魂的意圖,就是於你的靈魂意向來說,是符合你的靈魂顏色跟本質的。

例如,也有服務為天命的靈魂,也有創作為天命的靈魂,傾向群聚或是單飛的靈魂,愛熱鬧或是愛安靜的靈魂......

世界上有無數種意向跟本質的靈魂,或是相似的靈魂家族,但總之為了不走錯路,或是走屬於別人的路,就是時時與你的靈魂校準,問心(內在感官)最準,這是我和屬於我的獨特的那條路跟天命嗎?內在感官是我們價值完成的導航系統。

靈魂寫作(Soul Writing): 愛情做的人(My Soul Type)


靈魂寫作(Soul Writing):
愛情做的人(My Soul Type)

我覺得世界上應該有三種人:愛情優先的人,親情優先的人,跟友情優先的人。

以我的靈魂本質來說,祂是愛情優先的人,一輩子都是愛情優先的人。

即便是進入婚姻家庭,也始終是愛情優先的人。永遠都是。

因此我會寧可一家三口活動,而不是群體或家族活動。兩人活動,而不是參加團體活動,因為我重視維繫在現實生活中不易的愛情與兩人世界。自助旅行,而不是跟一票人去旅行。

我的靈魂,祂其實是正紅色的,愛情與熱情做的人。而孩子是愛情的結晶,兒子也是我親密的小情人。

靈魂寫作(Soul Writing):天地為友:我們適合自由&低干擾的生活( Keeping A Peaceful Mind )

靈魂寫作(Soul Writing):
天地為友:自由&低干擾的生活(Peaceful Mind)

本周與心理諮商深談到,其實我(們)需要的是自由與低干擾的生活。然後,其實人可以與自然萬物皆為友,不一定是指人與人之間經營的長遠社交關係。人與人的社交往來,是必須有來有往靠經營,不過不一定適合我們這種努力在照顧自己家人的家庭。

我其實一直以來,在使用網路工具,也是一直維持著自由與低干擾的方式,不會多建立連結,不需要我知道的太多資訊或是人際網路,反而會帶來無謂的煩惱跟負擔。反而,我自由自在地以我另類的方式在使用網路工具。一直以來,皆是如此,無一例外。

因為,現代社會其實很多事都是事務性的,比方辦理什麼事需要跟特定單位的特定人員辦理,跟平常有沒有建立長遠關係不一定相關。然後,資訊其實很透明,不一定需透過口耳相傳,很重要的資訊,一定會知道,其實可以查資料和做功課,又過濾掉人這關的好處或相對煩惱(一體兩面)

過度資訊,反而是一種負擔。多聽到一句話,於心反而是負累。人生於世,生一張口,有時候口語的作用本是正反兩面都有。

因為,以長期照顧家庭來說,其實本身就已經是長期自己在努力維持一個身心靈的平衡,其實像是人與人的社交,都是有來有往,其實是經營來的,可是我們其實需要很簡單和不需要多想的生活,來維持長期不易的緊張壓力下的平衡。

有事辦事,反而比維持人際社交來來往往簡單無擾。人際社交,有來有往,其實不是單方面不需要經營的。簡單面對事務處理與生活本身,反而適應我們的生活型態。

生活簡單,不需要知道世事他人事,直接應對事務生活需求本身,反而適應我們簡單生活的需求。古人或今人也多有清幽隱居於山林的清修隱者,簡單生活的人,我覺得少了經營人際社交,單純面對生活的本然,與鳥語花香與大自然為友,其實是一種更適合我們無負擔生活的方式。不是更心中無礙,更心中無擾,輕安自在。

生命故事:關於寶石戒指(My Life Story:About Gemstone Rings)





生命故事:關於寶石戒指
(My Life Story:About Gemstone Rings) 

記得在不知道幾歲的時候,有一次在玩我媽的婚戒,然後她的各色各種寶石戒指剛好可以讓我戴滿十隻手指,那時候我還是孩子,沒有半個飾品珠寶,所以那十個各色寶石戒指像是稀世稀世珍寶,讓我一直念念不忘,一直在等哪一天,我媽會把那盒寶石戒指拿出來送給我,好像把全世界的美好轉交到我手中那樣。當時我媽說,以後等妳結婚時,可以送給你。後來,事隔多年,那盒寶石戒指也不知道到哪裡去了,我媽說那是舊時款式,已經過時了,現在買新的就好了。

其實,我還是念念不忘那盒小時候戴過的稀世珍寶。小時候看過的最好,還有很懷念小時候玩穿我媽的中跟鞋,其實是很樸素的款式,但是一穿上去,就有長大的奇妙感覺。

其實,這九年多來,我的雙手十分勞動辛苦於照顧特殊兒和扶抱承重,以前還畫過我的雙手在哭泣掉淚的畫,十年前我連打針都找不到血管,是很軟的好命的手,現在手背看起來就知道是常勞動的常勞做的手,看得到清楚的血管,然後,總之,去年我為自己買了多只寶石戒指來慰勞雙手的辛勞。也等於把我盼望多年的我媽的那盒稀世珍寶買回來。在出門時,或想慰勞疲憊的雙手時,就會戴上寶石戒指以平衡,與增添雙手的質感。
