Laughter with Betty and Joan
Kate Loving Shenk did such a beautiful job reporting her feelings and insights about our interview with Charly Leetham — I am going to let you read her report first. I will have more to say about this tomorrow. It was a fun interview and a happy uplifting experience.
I was happy to attend the teleinterview of Joan Adams and Betty DeLorme 7/8/08. Charlie Leetham did an expert job in interviewing these two energetic ladies, whose laughter and
love lit up the telephone lines and cellular phone towers all across the globe!!
Betty and Joan are sisters and several other family members attended the call. They all were full of life and exuded great vitality!
By the end of the call, my vibe was revved up! I wanted to go dancing! But instead I found my favorite jazz station on the radio and called my brother and had a wonderful chat!
Two of the Electronic Book contributors were on the line besides Joan and Betty, and they were Buz McGuire and me. Buz is the author of “The Power of Release” and is the Executive
Director of the “Viral Happiness Initiative,” and both raise your energy as you read them.
Everyone on the call had a Southern accent accept for Charly with her Australian, (and me with my East Coast USA). This gave a musical quality to the call which was melodious
and soothing, adding to the good will and beneficience of everyone there.
When Betty was discussing the need to celebrate everything in our lives, her optimistic spirit was what I was listening to. And yes, celebration is so important. Noticing the greatness
and all the miracles of life, slowing down enough so that these gifts are noticed in their entirety, that every color, smell, emotion are embedded forever in memory.
Everytime I successfully start an IV, I do an inward little dance!
Today I picked juicy, plump red delicious rasberries off the vine and ate them all.
That in itself was a celebration!
Joan discussed the synchronicities and magic of how the book came to be. Betty and Joan decided around the holidays of 2007 that they would write and compile this project, and by March 2008, all the contributors had submitted their unique gifts, and family members pitched in to help put it all together.
It sounded like one of thse miracles of creativity where you allow all good things to come to you because of happiness and receptivity to the creation at hand, focusing and loving every moment.
Charly asked about the contribution of Todd Silva, “Give Away A Dollar A Day.” This great idea came to Todd in an AHA!! moment and has started a small movement that has every potential of growing over time.
This is how it works: You take a dollar bill and tuck it in unsuspecting places so that someone finds it at a later time.
Joan said it’s like finding a four leaf clover, which transported my mind to my dear mother, who absolutely loved to pick four leaf clovers. You couldn’t take a walk with her in any timely fashion because she’d end up crawling around a clover patch looking for those elusive four leaf beauties. The amazing thing is, she’d always find 1, sometimes 3 or 4.
So Todd’s latest Give Away A Dollar idea is to tuck a dollar in a gas cap, so that a person doesn’t feel so badly about the gas prices. Joan said she likes to drop a dollar behind the dog food in a store to contribute to the coffers of someone’s beloved four legged companion!
The idea of spreading feelings of abundance and prosperity is what makes this method a real mood enhancer. You are giving away “only” a dollar, but in the act of giving, happiness
becomes a new found habit because you are giving energy in the form of money every single day.
This metaphysical act creates more and more abundance.
Today I walked the “Grotto of Lourdes” in Emmitsburg, MD, where Mother Mary is said to heal the pilgrams who go there. This place is regarded as a Power Spot on this planet and plane of existance.
Power Spots are real and they raise your energy!
Walking the “Grotto of Lourdes” reminded me of a labyrinth where you are able to stop at each station of the cross with beautiful statues of Jesus as The Sacred Heart and Mother Mary and all the Holy Saints and Apostles at various surprising places behind an old growth tree or at one place a purple “Veronica” peeked out behind a prominant bush.
And there were two beautiful chaples along the way where you could sit and meditate and pray. Nature in all her beauty was gracing this lovely place.
I lit a candle and asked Divine Mother to help me with a “problem” that has stalked me for 35 years, more pressingly for the last seven. And naturally it’s too early to say what the miracle will be but my perception has changed about this so-called problem.This is a miracle in and of itself, says A Course In Miracles.
I even got a rosary to use as I finger the beads while doing Kriya Yoga.
We all had a wonderful time. My companions had spent their formative years in this Grotto so they felt as if they had come home.
I also felt totally uplifted by the experience!! By purposely going to a place where healing is known to occur, transcendence pulled all of us into higher and faster vibrational fields where
forgiveness and love are naturally present.
My challenge of 35 years didn’t seem real in this plane of reality. In fact, it no longer feels like “it” has any power over me at all.
Letting Go/Letting God?
Touched by Mother Mary?
No matter what, the Blahs were Banished today.
This and much more are the gifts of keeping the mind open for joy and transformation.
