I raised a first class bitch

A couple of days ago I found a large envelope in my mail box addressed to my married daughter with my address on it. This has not been her address since she graduated from high school in 1997. It isn't unusual for me to occasionally get mail  for people who have never lived in my house. Usually I just toss it, especially if the person is deceased.

I kept looking at this envelope because it was from Prudential, the insurance company where my ex-husband had a life insurance policy. I had assumed  the money had been sent to my daughter as he died four months ago and even though I was the beneficiary they were not giving it to me. Unfair or not that's just the way it was. Insurance companies can get by with a lot nowadays.

Tossing the envelope was an option but I decided to open it to see if it was just junk or something important. As it turned out it was something that needed her attention. They apparently had been trying to reach her and needed her to return a requested form. so they could close the account. If they didn't hear from her by a certain date the money would be put into an unclaimed policy fund.

I immediately hand delivered the envelope to her house with a note explaining why I had opened it.

Always looking for something to blame me for she had a fit because it had been opened.

If she wasn't such a self centered person she would have thanked me for giving her a heads up. If it had been my intention to keep her from getting the money I would have tossed the mail and she would never have known that she was about to miss out on a large chunk of cash.

Someday karma will catch up to her.

Out of my hands

I had no intention of listening to or viewing any part of the inaugural proceedings this morning, but apparently someone had a different plan.

I had a chiropractic appointment first thing this morning to try to get my neck to stay in alignment. If you missed an earlier post it is apparently the reason I have been having some weird symptoms like light hotheadedness. This morning the adjustment left me feeling a bit strange, but I knew I had to pick up a couple of items at the grocery case the snow continued. So I forced myself.

On the way home I tried to tune my car radio to a station with calming music. This is when an unseen source took over. The only station I could get featured Rush Limbaugh and the inaugural proceedings. Pence had just been sworn in and the swearing in of the 45th president of the United States was next.

I left the dial where it was and listened to a beautiful version of God Bless America, sung by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir..As my car headed into my driveway the swearing in of President Donald John Trump began. Oddly, I had a feeling of peace. Perhaps I was simply following the direction of an entity with a lot more power than I had.

Respect vs. disrespect

Talking to a person that I have a great deal of respect for, I said that I didn't understand what the protest marches were proving. In my opinion they are a waste of time and money. The response from the other person was, "the marches are sending a very loud NO!" After digesting that I can see his point. The marches, assuming nobody gets injured or killed, are simply a way of expressing an opinion of an event that could possibly interfere with our country's well being..

I'm not involved in politics, but like a very large portion of Americans I am greatly concerned about our future leader. He has got to be the most disrespectful being I have ever come across. If I were one of his children I would be totally embarrassed. I feel very sorry for his youngest son, who is not old enough to stand up for himself and express his thoughts. Parents are supposed to be positive role models for their children. In this family all I see is a generation of brainwashed souls.

The question I am dealing with this morning is- when you intentionally call a person every dirty name in the book ( not sure what that book would be) in retaliation for what he spreads around is that respect or are you  just adding to the general disrespect in you own way?

As I have written in the past, I cannot respect this man. On the other hand I am not willing at this point to disrespect him. My only tool is to express my opinion through my blog which is exactly what I am doing this morning.

Attitude is adjustable

In trying to decide what was causing my latest health issue I had to go back in time and rethink what has been going on in my life lately. Mainly finding the reason for my light headedness, headaches and blood pressure problem, all of which were causing serious anxiety symptoms. Did I miss something I wondered?

Although my blood pressure had come down over the last couple of days I was still suffering from the other problems, mostly a very stiff neck. Nothing I tried fixed this problem. I even blamed the new glasses I had been trying to get used to. That was a wrong assumption because I hadn’t worn them for a few days and still had the disturbing symptoms. 

Yesterday, still trying to collect pertinent facts, I told my primary care person that I thought it was due to all the negative energy out there in the universe. I am aware that some people absorb energy from others so the thought wasn’t that farfetched. I am aware that I do have some spiritual gifts. Everyone does.

Noting this morning that even after taking a muscle relaxant last night I still could not relax my neck. Realizing there was one more option I could try, which I had put off as a last resort, I made an appointment with my chiropractor. It had been almost two years since I had an adjustment. Fortunately I was able to be seen this morning. 

Intuition is a wonderful thing when one does not ignore the shove!

My neck was so far out of alignment that the doctor believed it was interfering with the blood flow to my head/brain, thus causing the problems I was having.  After the adjustment and ultrasound therapy on my neck I felt a world of difference. I have another appoint on Friday and you better believe I will keep it.
Blame is adjustable after you consider ALL the facts.

I’m thinking that possibly this thought could apply to the president elect. I have come to the conclusion he honestly believes he can make positive changes in our government, but his method is just deplorable. He reminds me of a bull in a china closet. You have to pick your battles. 

He also reminds me of a local female who managed to get elected to our City Council several years ago. She began her term of office thinking she could change everything that she felt was wrong with our city government. As a result, nobody listened to her and she accomplished very little.  

Not only do you need all the facts, but you need to be able to adjust your attitude and strive for balance.

An interesting morning

I didn't sleep well last night and woke feeling rather strange. I had a follow up doctor's appointment yesterday to touch base on my recent spinal CT scan, which concluded that I have spinal stenosis. It is no longer causing pain, but my provider is still strongly suggesting a sciatic block. I believe it is way too early and have said no. Something happened to cause my blood pressure to be high and I ended up having it taken three times during my visit. It finally came down to an acceptable level, but I am still having trouble figuring out why that happened. It had been doing great.

This morning I decided I had better check it out and was startled when it was even higher than yesterday. To make a long story short my son ended up taking me to the ER. I was really afraid I was going to have a heart attack, stroke or be admitted to the hospital.

You know that saying about worrying about things that may never happen? Well that was me this morning because it was even higher when I arrived at the ER. Higher than it had ever been in my life as far as I know. As it turned out it was an anxiety attack according to the attending doctor, whose first question to me was, "What are you upset about?"

I listed a couple of things that were causing stress and then added and Trump! I thought it was a joke until I realized it was probably truer than I realized. There has been so much negative energy floating around since the election that is is quite possible I "inhaled" some of it. It's really very hard to avoid the mess the country is in at the moment and not worry about the future.

I don't see anything anyone can do about what will happen less than a week from now. In my opinion protest marches are the biggest waste of time and money that anyone has come up with. Although it is very hard to ignore the negative energy that is everywhere, for my own well being I am going to do just that.

Even though the morning might have been interesting, I have no intention of a repeat performance.

A Sacred Message

Today while reading a copy of my Amazon Kindle book, Journey of an Enlightened Egotist I ran across a section that was so appropriate for current events I could not resist sharing so here it is:

While gathering (spirit) stories a man named Gabriel called me saying he was interested in my project. We talked about concepts that we seemed to share and he indicated that he had a project of his own involving spiritual energy that he wanted to tell me about.

The next morning he came to my house accompanied by his wife and two children. Within minutes of arriving he put a pair of divining rods into my hands and began trying to convince me that I could use them to communicate with God.

In addition to the rods I was holding, he and his wife and two year old son were demonstrating how to use the ones they were holding. It reminded me of a three ring circus, pieces of metal swinging in every direction. I later decided the man would have made a good TV evangelist or a used car salesman.

Because he was so "good" at what he was promoting, I admit I was briefly convinced that what he was telling me was true. That is until I received a telepathic message from my Creator, reminding me that we already have a one on one connection and therefore I have no need for anything or anyone else to speak for me. All I have to do is talk directly to God and listen quietly for the reply.

Reflecting on the incident caused me to realize how easy it is to be taken in by frauds who claim to have all the answers. The only defense against unscrupulous characters like Gabriel is a strong personal belief system.

A personal stage

Much is being said about the man who will apparently be the next president. Nasty things are being tossed out into the universe by both those for and against his election. Let me state right from the beginning of this post that he will never ever be my president. It is impossible for me to have any respect for someone who is capable of spewing so much hatred. I believe karma will eventually take care of the situation and that something unexpected will happen on January 20th, 2017. What that is I actually have no idea. 

My post  today is with celebrities who think because they have a stage they can use it to mouth off and say whatever they choose. Those who have money and power have never impressed me. I am impressed by how people treat others not by their material possessions.

I have a problem with anyone who tries to sway another just because they believe their own publicity. If it wasn't for the advances in electronics very few would even know who these people are!

 From my little stage these are my thoughts on the current events that are in the news. Agree or not that is your right.
