Thoughts on Abortion from a Seven Year Old Boy

small baby in utero“Mommy, tell me something that is happening on the news.” Dante asked as I browsed the news feed on my smart phone.
“The news are not always good.” I said, trying to avoid talking about the news.
“Tell me something bad that is happening in the world!” Dante insisted as he pointed to one news article, “How about this one?”
He clicked on a news article that said, Abortion demand ‘soars’ over Zika.

Oh boy…here we go.

I explained to him that there was a sickness that is transmitted when people are bitten by a certain kind of mosquitoes. While most adults might feel like they got a cold, but mothers who are pregnant with babies might grow babies with very small heads. Babies with small heads often lead a miserable life and die very young. So many mothers want to ‘let the baby go’ while the baby is still small in the mother’s belly.
“How do you get rid of a baby from the mother’s belly?” Dante asked.
“Er…” Finding the right words to explain this to a seven year old I said, “They stick a tube up to the place where the baby is growing and suck it out.
“What!?” He turned around and faced me with a wide-eyed look, “How can they just do that?”
“Well, the mothers feel that if the babies are going to be born with small heads and live miserably, they might as well stop the pregnancy. The problem is, this is illegal is many countries.” I said.
“Why is it illegal?” Dante asked.
“Well, some people feel that even if the baby was still tiny, like the size of a pea, they will grow into a baby in a few months. So they might feel that if killing a full sized baby is illegal, then killing the baby the size of a pea should be illegal too.” I explained.
“Wow…” Dante muttered.
Curious about what his thoughts were about this heavy subject I asked, “What do you think Dante? If you were these mothers, who might have these very sick babies, would you consider having an abortion?”
As I waited for his answer, I saw his eyes welled up with tears as he responded with one simple question, “Will the baby feel hurt inside the mother’s belly?”
“I don’t know Dante…I don’t know…” I said.

Dante’s brother Cedric came over to play and that was the end of this conversation. I was very touched by Dante’s consideration for how the an unborn baby would feel even if the baby was the size of a pea.

A Thought on Failure

You may have thought you failed
But you did the best that you could
You listened to guidance
And connected her
Deep into the Light
Where Love exists

You did the best that you could…

Be the Light that You Are

Even without words
You can make a difference
By BEING the Light that you ARE
Being the Light transmutes ignorance without effort

Meet people where they are
Love and accept them as they are NOW
Not who they SHOULD be
And when they awaken
They shall know
Where to find you

Wisdom from a Tree

“I believe you may have a strong connection to plants.” I said to my friend as I sat across her at a vegetarian restaurant.
I wasn’t sure why I said this but I had a strong intuitive feeling that this was true. After over a decade of testing out my intuitive hunches, I finally came to the conclusion that I should really trust myself because my accuracy rate was pretty high.

Besides getting the hunch that my friend had a strong connection with the nature around her, my intuition also showed me how I was going to help her.

A few weeks later we made the trek out to a beautiful lake surrounded by beautiful trees. We picked a spot by the lake and sat down. When my friend told me she was ready to proceed, I told her to choose a tree or a plant nearby she would like to connect with.

She picked a tree beside her and I trusted my instincts and guided her to connect with her inner wisdom. Within minutes, my friend felt the Being that was the tree.

“What do you feel like?” I asked.
“It feels like my hips are very heavy and I am deeply anchored into the ground.” She said.
“How far do the roots go?” I asked.
“It goes all the way down to the edge of the lake…the roots of every tree are all interconnected together! So above the ground, the trees may seem separate from each other, but under the ground, they are all connected!”
“If the tree can tell you something now, a message that it has for you, what would it say?” I asked.
“The tree said ‘we are all One’.” My friend replied with tears streaming down her face.
She was not just getting a message, but she was experiencing the Oneness of the entire forest and all the life around her. There was a sense of awe in her voice when she spoke. It seemed like she deeply felt how loving and connected the trees were to one another. The forest was not a lonely place, it was a very vibrant place full of love, connection, and a sense of community between all the plants and animals.

After my friend shared her insights with me, I realized that the forest is very symbolic of life as a spiritual being in a physical body. The physical body is like the individual trees in the forest, seemingly separate from one another. The roots are like the spiritual being that inhabits the body — deeply connected to the souls of other beings.

We are all connected to each other at the roots of our soul, even if we seem separate to each other.

A Matter of Choice

Message from the Universe:

Remember, you can always choose how you feel.

It may seem hard at times, as if the bad feelings have taken over.

Know that you can always choose to look at things,
A little differently,
With more love and forgiveness,
More appreciation and gratitude,
For all of life’s experiences and lessons.

Strange Occurrence

“Hey May, did you try to come to my yoga class today? I had to close the door at 9:30 am and I saw someone outside the door who was late and couldn’t get in.  I was pretty sure it was you!” My friend texted me.
“It must have been a future time line you saw because I was pretty sure I was at home. Although I had planned to go to your class next week!” I replied.
“Future timeline!”
“Although this might suggest that in a future timeline, I will be late and get locked out of the yoga class.” I mused.
“She looked exactly like you May!” My friend insisted.
“I am also pretty sure that my twin sister was sleeping on the other side of the world in Taiwan” I said.
“I feel better now knowing that it wasn’t you trying to make the class and I couldn’t open the door.” My friend said.
“In the future if this happens, I’ll just fatten up some more at the Starbucks next door!” I needed to make sure she won’t feel bad in the future.

Ten hours later when I thought back to this conversation I wondered if I had mastered the art of teleportation…

A Pro at Manifesting Abundance

Another funny bedtime conversation with the kids…

Cedric: Mommy and Daddy are going to have to move out of the house one day.
Dante: No! Why? (Dante loves this house)
Cedric: Because we are going to grow up and leave the house and they might have to move somewhere else!
Dante: I tell you what Mommy, I’ll buy you and Daddy a house to live in.
May: GREAT! (I like where this conversation is going.)
Dante: Or better yet (sneaky look on his face), I’ll just send the bill to CEDRIC! Muahhahaha…
Cedric: That’s ok. I want to be RICH one day. Wait, correction, I am GOING to be RICH when I grow up.
May: Wow, Cedric, this is awesome, you seem 100% sure that you are going to be rich!
Cedric: And I am going to have infinite dollars!
May: Er…
Dante: What JOB are you going to do to get you all that money?
Cedric: I don’t need a job, I will just find thousands of dollars on the floor.
May: I love how confident you are Cedric.

I guess that was a reminder that I was talking to a seven year old boy who is just getting familiarized with all his numbers.  Recently he was just walking around and he picked up $200 from the floor near some vending machines. While I turned the cash into police in case someone else was looking for it, I was quite amazed how he was able to find the money where others might have overlooked the cash. Now he is a firm believer that money simply shows up easily for him. It seemed like he was well on his way to mastering the art of manifesting abundance in his life. I definitely didn’t tell him he has to go to school, get good grades so that he can get a good job. At the age of seven, he has got it all figured out.

While some parents reading this might feel like I may be misleading my kids into believing that money actually grows on trees, I sincerely believe that too many people are taught early on that having money requires hard work. If what we believe shall manifest into our physical reality, then I would rather that my sons believe with certainty that they are and will be abundant and that abundance can come to them easily and effortlessly.

The Cure For Loneliness

Recently I facilitated an inner wisdom session with a yoga teacher and here are the golden nuggets I learned from this session:

Love, is the highest and most important mission.

To solve the despair in the world requires more people to get in touch with their inner selves.
The lack of connection people have with their inner selves is the true cause of loneliness.
When people are connected to their inner selves, they will no longer feel lonely.

They will make the best choices for themselves and the environment around them.
This is the best way to create a sustainable future for generations to come.

I personally felt incredibly touched by this inner wisdom session because it helps me realize the why behind what I do with my work – to help alleviate the pain and suffering in the world by helping people connect to their true inner selves and listen to their own inner wisdom.

Together with many healers around the world, we need to do our best to connect and be our true selves and help others to do the same.

Self Fulfilling Prophecy

Today I was schooled by my 8 year old…here is what happened.

“Dante, you should put your skipping ropes in this little backpack here.” I picked up a blue and grey backpack and motioned for Dante to put his skipping ropes in there.
“I’m not a fan of that bag, it just isn’t my kind of backpack.” Dante sneered at the supposedly ugly backpack.
“Well, skipping ropes can be easily lost…” I prodded.
“Nope, not my style.” Dante insisted on holding the skipping ropes in his hands until he got to training class.

When Dante got to his training class, the coach told the students that skipping ropes were not required so they can put the skipping ropes away. Dante gave his skipping ropes to me for safe keeping in my small purse.

After the training class, Dante asked for a quarter for a gumball candy and I had to take the skipping ropes out out my purse to access my wallet. But when I got home, I noticed that the skipping ropes were no longer in my purse!

“Dante, I think I might have lost the skipping ropes today when you asked me for a quarter…” I said.
“Didn’t you say earlier that skipping ropes are easily lost?” Dante said with a smug smile on his face, “You should be careful with what you say Mommy, because it might just come true!”

These were the wise words of an eight year old boy…

Why is it so hard to say “I love you”?

Dear Universe,

What should we talk about today?

Universe: “I love you”. You say that more to your cats than the people around you.
May: I know right?! Why is it so hard for people to say “I love you”?
U: Because it makes them feel vulnerable. They are really fearing that people won’t love them back, stemming from the times from childhood and beyond (past, future, and parallel lives), where they wanted love but did not receive love in the way they wanted.

To be here (on earth) to some is the same as separating from the eternal love or the place where eternal love used to be.
From the time of “perceived” separation from the place of eternal love, we are trying to get back to that place of eternal love.
People do all kinds of things to achieve that sense of unconditional love and bliss. Some take drugs, some engage themselves in dangerous activities…some seek unrealistic expectation in relationships – trying to dictate what love should be.

In the realm of Spirit, which every individual is capable of accessing, there are no limits to time and space. You can be at one place and then “be” instantly in another space. You are omnipresent. You won’t need to go anywhere. You are everywhere and henceforth, you are always and already in the place of eternal love.

If you knew this, you no longer need to seek love from others. You already have all the love you need and more. You shall have unlimited love to give without expectations.

It is easier to say, “I love you” to your cats because you can restrict their movements by holding them and making sure that they don’t go anywhere. You know they cannot say, “I love you” back, so there is no expectation of how a cat should behave when you profess your love to it.

But with other humans, it is different, people don’t always respond in ways you expect them to and therefore, there is the possibility of feeling vulnerable…and seemingly abandoned if the response you get from the ones you love was not what you expected it to be. If you can draw love from the place of eternal love, then you would be able to say “I love you”, whenever and wherever without worrying about not receiving certain types of expected responses.
