Sunday Morning Coffee Musings: Yin and Yang

Cup of coffee and clementines

Have you ever had a week where it seems as if as much good news you received, you would receive some bad news as well? You are happy and sad, joyful and concerned. Mixed emotions. How can I be upset when this very good thing happened? How can I be happy when this sad thing happened?

The Yin Yang symbol or concept is that everything in the universe has two opposing forces, yet complimentary to each other. The symbol itself has specific meaning from it’s circular appearance to the way the black and white intertwines. One aspect of this symbol and concept is that one thing dominates for a time and then it is replaced by something else that dominates. Such as Life and Death. Also the black circle in the white part of the symbol and the white circle in the black part is an interaction of each force in all things.

We experience the Yin and Yang in life on a more noticeable level during some periods of our lives. For me it was this week as I made great strides towards advocating for myself with my doctors and nurses. I had breakthroughs concerning a particular ordeal. And then I was dealt some blows. My emotions were pulled in many directions as I was rejoicing, feeling optimistic and also feeling aggravated and concerned. I could say “Oh just focus on the good” and while that sounds logical and spiritual, I thought I should just “feel” until things mellow out. You know how a scale moves until the things placed on it of equal weight balances out? Yeah, I think that is what needed to happen. So this morning, I am balanced in my emotions through the process. I revel in advancements made and I take care of the necessary trouble brewing.

Marching Orders for a NEW ME

 

marching-orders3

I don’t know if you make New Year’s Resolutions or goal’s or if you call them other things. I don’t know your religion or beliefs but, some of us go to church and we get the mandate for a new year via a Pastor or Priest. However you decide to embrace the NEW YOU this year I wish you all the best.

As you may see from my blog, I am who I am and I make no apologies but, I may make some accommodations depending on how the Spirit or Universe moves me. So, I had three dreams early New Year’s Day and in those dreams I found instructions for my NEW YEAR. I believe there is a:

1.Spiritual call made in church for a NEW YEAR. I adhere to the instructions in my church.

2. I believe there is a global call  made by the Divine and the clues are from the previous year. I think globally I hear one word. REFORM. A reform on every level. Just think about the major things that have been a constant thread in 2015 and challenge globally. You can think global warming or security issues everywhere. I feel this year will begin a task of reformation. Even in the way we think about each other.

3.Then I believe there is a personal mandate. You have MARCHING ORDERS (military term for instructions basically) given directly to you by God/Divine/Universe/Spirit or created by you.

My marching orders in short were:

1.Don’t give up completely on love but, put it to the side while you focus all your energy on your dreams.

2. It is now time to use the jewels located in depths of your soul. I (God for me), hid them there for such a time as this. Put on the characteristics of navy blue and emerald green. These colors represent your instructions for your purpose.

3. I will show you how to look like a million bucks for the rest of your life. Even into old age you will not age. Taking care of your body more so with food than an exercise craze. (God knows my personal health challenges).

Thanks for reading and I hope you have your MARCHING ORDERS. Salute!
