Hippie Lady Ideas © 2016

Thoughts, ideas, hopes and dreams of a self described hippie. I'm the boss of me. Don't tell me how to be a hippy or how to spell it. ✌Psst.. I use to be OkSecretSquirrel.

I can’t sleep. Ever. I rest four, maybe five hours a night. I can’t stop thinking. I lie here in this big king, memory foam adjustable bed and tweet. I tweet a lot these days. I have Facebook and during the day I Facebook some. Some days I post several times a day. I’m bored with my existence. It sounds terrible. It sounds depressing to say I’m bored with my life.

It isn’t bad.

It isn’t sad.

It isn’t depressing.

Is it?

It is just a fact that I’m in the middle of my life and I don’t know what to do next.

The things I come up with seem ludicrous.

Travelling and photographing 100 plus year old buildings that are abandoned.

Photographing little known, forgotten, cemeteries.

Being a clown.  That sounds fun.

Opening another second hand shop.

Write a book even if no one reads it.

Drive all over the United States. Leave my home and just drive until I’ve hit all continental states. Screw Hawaii. I’m not all about flying unless I absolutely have to. I may at some point change my mind about the flying thing someday but for today… No need, no desire.

I feel like I’m not normal.

Not sure if that is a bad thing.

Light Bearer there is Hope! Shine. Earth Needs You. 

I just came across this. I don’t like to focus on the person who wrote this. I know nothing about her or what she is all about. I did provide a link to the author at the bottom. I like this message very much, regardless. 
Light Bearer, any limitation that you feel blocks your path is an expression of a memory you carry deep within your physical, emotional and energetic bodies of times when your efforts were limited by situations in which your light was rejected.
These are often expressions of your martyr and victim consciousness, when you offered yourselves as a healing light to your soul groups knowing that they were not yet prepared for their transformationthrough your help, Lightbearer

It was never your mission to change the world, your role in the world is to shine your light in all of its expressions.

And you can do that, no matter what the world does in response.

The world will eventually turn towards the light when it has experienced enough darkness. When the world can find power in love it will no longer need fear. But it must experience both to make that choice. Lightbearer, you can be the love the world needs to have as one choice among many.

All Light bearers have had lifetimes of service in the world, to be forces for change and transformation. The light was always extended even though there were many lifetimes when it was extinguished because the world wasn’t ready to release its fear.

Those times you felt betrayed by Source and the belief that you were abandoned and not supported as a source of light and love was created. This belief has reverberated throughout your lifetimes and it is strongly expressed within your soul group.

Through the ego, Lightbearer, you have translated this role of bringers of the light to mean that you have come to change the world. But you have simply come to be a source of light, a connection to the light and love and Source for those who are willing to see and recognize it to acknowledge it and accept it into their own hearts and being.

From these experiences you have pushed yourselves further into dimming your own light, limiting the expression of your Lightbearer gifts and not choosing the path of powerful creation for yourselves. If the world does not change and accept you and your gifts, you believe that you are not worthy of the joy, love, abundance and success that are your divine birthright.

Lightbearer, You martyr yourself on behalf of the light and yet that is merely an expression of your own fear that by being powerful you are a threat rather than an inspiration. You can be all you desire and want to have, every dream is possible for you when you shine your light and are willing to accept blessings for yourselves.

The path of the martyr and victim is not the highest expression of your energies and limiting your abundance is not in integrity with Lightbearer truth. You can be all things within your life as you express who you are to a world that may or may not accept it.

Be your truth, that is all you can do, and allow the world to follow its path until it is ready to make its own transformation.

You have come to bring the truth of divinity and ascension to the world, Lightbearer, now express that in your own life and you will be the change the world seeks. Each of you can change the world when you begin within your own reality and shine your light within you, illuminating your own shadows, releasing your fear, connecting to your inner resources and being the light in your life so you can also en-lighten the world.

1960’s An Amazing Time

My parents love music. I love the music that played while I was in the womb. The music that played in the background of my youth while I was laying in the floor with my toys. I love the music that played in the distance while I lay in bed at night. Let’s not forget the music that played on the car radio while we fought with our siblings in the backseat. It is the soundtrack to life.  

I listened to music more than watched tv in the 1960’s and early 1970’s.  The small black and white televisions in most homes didn’t give you the mental stimulation that music did and it was all around us.  

Listed here are some of the songs that came out the year I was born. 1966

Paint it Black – Rolling Stones

Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down) – Cher

Just Like Me – Paul Revere and the Raiders

Did You Ever Have To Make Up Your Mind? – Lovin’ Spoonful

Reach Out I’ll Be There – The Four Tops

Green Grass – Gary Lewis & The Playboys (Great SUMMER song!☀️)

Woman – Peter & Gordon 

Lightnin’ Strikes – Lou Christie

Cherish – The Association

Bus Stop – The Hollies 

Uptight – Stevie Wonder

Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs -Little Red Riding Hood
Wild Thing – The Troggs

Eleanor Rigby – The Beatles

Sweet Talkin’ Guy – The Chiffons

I haven’t been writing because I’ve just lost my dad a little over a week ago. Today is the celebration of his life. I will post more about my dad in the coming weeks but for now, this is just a short goodbye to my dad, the ole man, the hippie, the Christian, the maker of stained glass, the keeper of the rocking chair. He loved a cold beer and classic easy going rock, and to rock away his time next to my mother, his wife of fifty years.  We all have to go sometime and when he went I’m happy to say he wasn’t too worried about any of us. He was proud of his family and loved us all.  Goodbye dad.
