Fare thee well 2014

It has been a very intense and overwhelming time for me lately. I have so many unanswered questions, loose ends, and unfinished business that will remain a mystery as this year closes. While I typically do not view the end of the calendar year as an accurate time to usher in new beginnings, years of cultural conditioning orient me to use this window to clear out what no longer is needed. We cannot totally eliminate our 3D cultural orientation while in a body, or can we??

As I walked outside tonight to take out the trash, I looked all around and prayed fervently for a sign to guide me. No creatures were in sight, yet..

As I approached my front door, one by one all the light fixtures at the apartment complex began to turn on. My prayer was answered! It is all about the light.

I call this blog litebeing chronicles so that I can use myself to illuminate the planet with all I have to offer. I have so much more inside of me. I have not mastered litebeing consciousness yet.

So I close this year with a huge thank you and a wonderful video that encourages us all to shine brightly onward.

WordPress is a Divine Messenger

Dear fellow bloggers and bloggettes,

This will be short and sweet. Got my annual WP report and it was pretty standard fare. That is until we got to the countries section.

Guess how many countries visited litebeing chronicles this year?

Anyone have an inkling?

How about 111?

Yes, you read that correctly.

111 countries!

Now either the top brass know my affinity for 11s and are playing a prank, or it is Divinity in motion.

There are 195 countries in the world and I am thrilled so many have visited here. But  111, well I am overjoyed. Grace once again has made an appearance to let me know I am fine. I plan to write for the rest of my days, God willing… public domain

WordPress is indeed, a Divine Messenger that knows no limits..

Thank you for visiting and assisting me in spreading some lite.

Kintsukuroi: Broken Places are Golden

Let’s all create beauty by celebrating our dark and broken places. We can transform our wounds into golden shafts of light. Jamie’s post is a treasure, especially at this time in our history.

Sophia's Children

A piece of pottery that broke, was repaired with gold, and is now Kintsukoroi. Do you see the Rune symbol?(Image shared on a Kintsukoroi post on Camiimac.) A piece of pottery that broke, was repaired with gold, and is now Kintsukoroi. (Image shared on a Kintsukoroi post on Camiimac.)

I admit, the sheer beauty of some of these words calls me to them and inspires me into their mysteries!

Kismet, Wabi SabiWu Wei (the art of non-doing), and Kintsukoroi, for example. Each has its own mystery, its own invitation to us.

Kintsukoroi, for its part, is the exquisite inclination to see the potential beauty in and then make art from the shards of something that’s broken.

As Leonard Cohen sang, “There is a crack … a crack in everything; that’s how the light shines through.”

Those working the magic of Kintsukoroi piece things back together, using precious metals like gold, silver, and I’d suggest copper, because it’s beautiful.

Why do they do this? Why do they bother with something that most…

2014 Wrap-up Challenge: Present Your Gifts

By JD Hancock from Austin, TX, United States (Merry Christmas 2010) [CC BY 2.0 (], via Wikimedia Commons

Since I decided I would take whichever day was left for my blogging challenge, I kinda suspected I would get Christmas Day. Yet I figured I would wait and write my post on the day I was “given.” It is indeed Christmas Day and I am relishing the quiet while I type. This post is my present to all of you.  So in that spirit please read on…

First I want to let you in on a little secret. When I devised this challenge and created the theme, I was hoping that focusing on gratitude would lift my spirits. I was imagining that those who were called to participate would connect to form an energetic web of light that exuded grace, miracles, and blessings. As per usual, this challenge has proved to be miraculous in scope with surprises at every twist and turn. And it isn’t even finished yet!

When I looked at my aspects for my solar return chart ( birthday chart) for November 6 2013 , I saw that Saturn would be exactly on my Sun. The solar return chart illustrates the events of a one year cycle from the day of your current birthday through the next. With an exact Saturn to Sun conjunction and Pluto in Capricorn squaring Uranus off and on all year, I had a hunch this would be an arduous year for me. I reflected on my first Saturn in Scorpio transit and recalled the losses, disappointments, and successes. I recalled graduating from Temple University’s Master’s Program in Counseling Psychology , making amazing friends, and living alone (without family or room mates) for the first time in my very own apartment. It was a difficult cycle, but oh so rich in lessons and blessings. This year is no different in that regard.

The children’s story The Little Engine That Could immediately came to mind when I was reflecting about this year. It is a story about chugging along productively, despite the obstacles. Please consider this story as you read along:

Which lessons did you learn?

I learned so many things this year. I learned that my greatest fears can be made manifest. February is one of my favorite months but it was brutal this year. On the same day I discovered I had skin cancer that required surgery, I also was told that my long time friend and neighbor had abruptly passed away. What we focus on with our attention and intention is what persists. Worries about Cancer finally showed up as Cancer. The good news is that it was treatable and gone from my body. A scar remains to remind me of past battles and my ability to choose my thoughts differently in the present moment. My friend is also gone, but her passion for animals and all of nature certainly live on. I also learned that I can keep redirecting my Self, even when I am tempted to give up. Like that little engine, my natal Saturn in Capricorn teaches me the wisdom of striving to improve and to move mountains one tiny step at a time.

How did you serve others?

I served others by clearly communicating my limitations. This is not typically my sweet spot as I prefer to pursue excellence. Yet being genuine and transparent requires honesty and admission of human imperfection. I also served others by unabashedly sharing my love and affection. I rarely say anything I do not mean so sometimes I worry that I may come off as phony. However, it is more important for me to cherish those I love and shower them with my expressions in the forms of truth and light. My heart never fails to lead me in the right direction and it served me well this year.

What blessings did you receive?

Generosity from family and friends was often unexpected and never taken for granted. With financial difficulties dominating most of this year, I always had more than enough. Sometimes the sources were unexpected. Not only was I gifted with opportunities to travel, enjoy art , celebrate nature, and dine with abandon, I was given one of the best presents ever, NO JUDGEMENT. I was gifted unconditional acceptance for being me! I hope to pass it onto as many souls as I can. The value of acceptance is beyond measure and is difficult to put into words. Let’s just say it is priceless.

Speaking of priceless, I have made so many amazing new friends this year that feel like eternal long- lost connections.  I have also developed closer bonds with the established ones and re-united with an oldie but goodie. My WordPress family continues to grow by leaps and bounds in a spiral-like motion. One click leads to another and all of a sudden I am collaborating with my moonies or chowing down on curry in real-time with a “new” bloggette buddy. public domain

Was there something you lost that turned out to be a blessing in disguise?

This question was created many moons ago. When I developed a Grief and Loss group at my program, I collaborated with a wonderful soul who was part of the team that I supervised. At some point he asked me if we could expand the focus of the group and suggested we look at all types of loss. This question came out of that process. Months later when Special K cereal began the campaign ” What will you gain when you lose?”, I knew the Universe approved of this query.

I discovered that I can make a difference with lasting impact, despite an eventual outcome that was not to my liking. I had 2 full-time jobs this year: One temporary and one “permanent”. Both assignments required I work harder and longer than typically required. Learning new skills usually comes easily and quickly to me, with boredom being the harshest obstacle to transcend, This year, it was not the case. I had to familiarize myself with tricky computer programs and databases with little help or support and often under immense pressure and scrutiny. Very, very Saturn! I also had to endure the toxicity of work environments that were unstable and unforgiving. Ultimately both assignments were taken from me, swiftly and without much explanation.

But silver linings abound in both cases. Without any provocation from me, I was showered with gratitude for my service. When I returned to the temp job to pick up some belongings, I encountered one of my clients who was deemed ” difficult”. She peppered me with questions about my departure which I could not answer. She told me how much the clients loved me and what a difference I made. I was overcome with emotion and brushed aside tears. At the other job, I had an opportunity to provide supervision to new therapists who were beginning to hone their skills. I developed a rapport with one young woman who initially questioned her decision to work in this field. In just a few months, she was blossoming into a confident, savvy, compassionate clinician. She soaked up all that I offered her and was open to my observations of her group and individual sessions. She repeatedly told me how much she learned from me and how much my attention and guidance meant to her. I was so sad to sever that bond, yet so excited to see how much she had benefited by my presence in her life. 

Did you receive any “gifts” in terms of powers or skills?

I did not receive any new powers or skills, but had ample opportunities to refine and practice my intuition and  increase my capacity to reach out to others. My experience of synchronicities has snowballed into an almost daily phenomenon. Nurturing and honoring each “episode” had brought me more and more. I question the purpose of these “happy accidents” less often, and prefer to take them in with appreciation. As someone who loves new experience and detests change, taking risks has often posed a very paradoxical challenge for me. While I have many times found myself led to be a pioneer and move in unfamiliar territory, it was never without a trace of anxiety. When a surprise invitation appeared to interview a film director, I thought I was dreaming ( not the lucid kind !) and was initially skeptical. Fortunately I followed my intuition and faced my fear of uncertainty. Skyping with Shawn and interviewing her for her film Saturn Returns is an experience that I will always treasure. It comes as no coincidence that I wrote about a film on Saturn during such a Saturnian-filled year!

 I discovered a core belief this year ~ that life is unsafe for me. I think I always knew this at some level, but this year’s journey brought it to awareness. But here is the thing: every single risk I took resulted in so much joy and love. When I am in that space, no fear can touch me and I am at one with all that is, the great IAM. For example, I spent Christmas Eve with a dear friend at her home. I only knew a few people there and was worried I might feel out-of-place. I cast these worries and doubts aside and reminded myself how great I feel when I am open. Well I made a new friend at the gathering with ease and grace. Within seconds I felt that we were meant to meet and the host told me she thought we would connect! This year has really reinforced for me the magic of being innocent and open. The little engine that could really chugs along when unencumbered by expectations, projections, or judgements.

Thanks to all of you who have accepted me, warts and all, into your hearts and into your circle. I am excited about this new year and expect to open new doors and walk through them with excitement and awe. My recent decision to embrace radical gratitude was wise, but not without its own set of unique demands. However I leave 2014 inspired to embrace my life and begin to grasp the magnificence of being human. I invite you to do the same.

May your heart be open to receive the gifts already on their way.


Postscript: I wanted to end this with a song and at 8:10 pm one popped into my head that really summarizes 2014. In a word, Brave.

love, litebeing


Have you noticed that 2014 is speeding by? Call it the aging process, shifting consciousness, or preoccupation with the big questions, all I know is that before long, the annual blog reviews will be posted and we will be looking at resolutions for 2015 ( maybe).

We had so much fun last year that I am proposing a new blogging challenge here at litebeing chronicles. All WP bloggers are cordially invited.

This one is really simple: Present Your Gifts!

What were the gifts of 2014? 



This can be approached in many ways :


Which lessons did you learn?

How did you serve others?

What blessings did you receive?

Was there something you lost that turned out to be a blessing in disguise?

Did you receive any “gifts” in terms of powers or skills? 


wikiart public domain

Get the idea. Make this as straightforward or esoteric as you like.  

You are the creator.


The plan is easy: This challenge will take place throughout the month of December. Pick a date by notifying me in  the comments section below and I will keep track of the schedule. Once you post to your blog, link to the challenge 2014 Wrap Up near the beginning of your post. Also link to the next scheduled blogger at the end of your post. I am available for help , don’t let that deter you.   All mediums are acceptable ~ music, art , prose, video, animation, poetry, photography, etc. These are stories that deserve to be celebrated and shared, like brightly decorated presents wrapped in shiny paper and sparkly ribbons.

If you have not participated before in such a venture, you are in for a treat. Take a look at last year’s challenge to see what we created in 2013.

I know that for many of us 2014 was very challenging , with the Grand Cardinal Cross, Uranus-Pluto square, Saturn in Scorpio, Mars retro in Libra, yada yada yada.  I certainly would agree that I have been challenged. But I also was gifted in some extraordinary ways.


How About You?

Greetings from Bizarro World

These past two weeks have been out of control. Virtually all of the choices and decisions I have made on my own behalf have proven to be faulty. Where have my superpowers gone? I do not have a poorly placed astrological transit on which to deflect responsibility for my current situation. I keep asking myself if Mercury is retrograde in an alternative universe.

I often take solace in a lesson well-learned. While I have learned a few lessons, I feel too fried to appreciate them. For example, my living room has been plagued with  a mysterious dripping water/knocking sound for a few weeks. The intensity and frequency has increased over time and it has become  a new form of cruel and unusual punishment. The noise would disappear when people came to hear it. The wall that it was coming from had no water stains or leaks. I began to wonder if my home was haunted, but it did not seem likely.

Today the mystery was solved and I was not even close to guessing the right answer. My old ( ancient) desktop computer speaker was the culprit. The maintenance people were ready to tear up walls to examine heating pipes and it was a speaker! My intuition must be on vacation in Barbados, because it was the farthest thing from my mind.

On top of that, I totally misjudged one of my neighbors who also is part of the maintenance team. He was kind and generous and did not judge me crazy for hearing intermittent noises that had nothing to do with the building. Where has my ability to read people gone? I really regret not seeing him clearly.

I have been making messes everywhere I go lately, from the bank to the supermarket to the laundry room to the public library.  This morning I made another practical but apparently poor choice that is putting my finances temporarily at risk. I consulted others and took my time with my decision, but in the end it created drama and I am not out of the woods yet.


A Course in Miracles has a famous line that goes like this:

Do you prefer that you be right or happy?

The former leader of my ACIM group would quote this line over and over and it has stayed with me over the years. I often prefer to be right and happy. Today I am wrong and unhappy, but I understand the value of this question. Indulging the ego in its quest to win at all costs is not the way to go. I also suspect that getting to the bottom of everything is also a fruitless pursuit. Many friends over the years have suggested that I just embrace the mystery. I must admit that I love a great mystery and my intense curiosity is one of my main reasons to get up in the morning, so…..

It is quite humbling to be so off of my game without any excuses. I have been sleeping well and the Pluto Uranus square is waning ( for now). I don’t understand what is driving this train. Am I picking up the energies of other beings ( human or otherwise) ? I do say a protection prayer at least once a day. Am I just plain exhausted from a year fraught with challenges and loss? Maybe I am putting too much pressure on myself to find meaning in what may just be a spell of bad luck. I have not neglected my radical gratitude practice and I am spending time in nature on a regular basis. Apparently doing everything right is still wrong sometimes.


Or perhaps this is a typical way to enjoy the holidaze in Bizarro World?


I will share this catchy song with you, but don’t go anywhere. I  do have a few announcements after this musical intermission :



1-Have you been following the 2014 Wrap-up Challenge? Here’s the link to the post with the current line-up here. The blogs have been very moving and quite diverse. I am so pleased that many of the regulars have returned and some new folks have also heeded the call! Please read their stories and be amazed  and inspired. There are still some dates available, so I cordially invite you to collaborate with your WP family in bidding goodbye to 2014.

2-Despite my new residence in Bizarro World, I still can perform dreamwork with a vengeance, read a mean astrology chart ( or a nice one), or see the sugar-plum visions in my head regarding your future.  So if you are curious about my services, now is a great time to get a reading.  I am currently having a special sale for the remainder of 2014. Please visit here for all the details.

3- They say good things come in 3s: The third announcement is that I have a show to plug. My ever-synchronous mind has ascension on the brain. Since I got bit by the ascension bug, I have been looking for more information on-line, at the library, and elsewhere. Well, I discovered there is a 3 part ( get the 3 theme) miniseries on SYFY channel called Ascension that I highly recommend. It kinda just appeared on my cable TV guide. At first I was stunned to see it there. The plot is not what I expected ( par for the course these past few weeks), but it is really unusual and clever and addictive in the best way.

You know we try to keep it positive here at litebeing chronicles, but we also keep it real. I have truly been struggling  lately and welcome prayers, love, Divine light, and positive energy. So I humbly admit that even litebeings can be off of their game and get a bit disoriented and lost. I hinted at this possibility (way back when) on Blog Story.

Thanks for reading and commenting and returning here time and time again, post after post, for close to 2 years.



I like this so much that I thought ” Oh yeah, let’s reblog! ”
And so I did, courtesy of my bud Sindy Sue.

Wes Annac – 8 Signs You May Be A Mystic – 12-16-14

Are you a mystic? You know if you are, so read on and learn more!
Let’s remember what this season is truly about. I will try harder if you do the same 🙂

Higher Density Blog

feature_image_templateWritten by Daniel, Expanded Consciousness, December 15, 2014 –
Here’s the definition I use for the word “mystic”: a person who claims to attain, or believes in the possibility of attaining, insight into mysteries transcending ordinary human knowledge, as by direct communication with the divine or immediate intuition in a state of spiritual ecstasy.

I understand it’s not a word everyone is familiar with. Buddhism is my path, but it’s not really correct to call it my religion. It’s a mystical path, not a religion. At least, that’s how I see it.

I realized not too long ago that I had a mystical worldview. Mystics have been present throughout human history. Mysticism pre-dates organized religion, but it’s something that has been almost lost in the modern world.

Here are some signs that you may be a mystic like me.

1) Personal connection rather than texts and doctrines.

INFJ at the Holidays?

Happy 12-12 everyone! Could not let today pass without some new material, so…

I was ready to dive into an astrology article including Taylor Swift, but she will have to shake it off just a little bit longer. I am sensing a need to write about how to navigate the holiday season with fun and a lot less drama. I have wanted to write about INFJs and HSPs ( Highly Sensitive People) for a while, and this seems to be the perfect time.

wikiart public domain

 Where is the INFJ in this picture?

He or she is probably in the basement or store bathroom with their hands over their ears! The INFJ personality is very sensitive, intuitive, headstrong, and idealistic. This  archetype is also generally quite introverted, perfectionistic, and value-driven. I think the HSP personality is a derivative of the INF ( Introvert Intuitive Feeling) categories in the Myers Briggs system.

As a card-carrying member of both clubs, I can unequivocally say that this time of year can be difficult. While I am still carrying out my radical gratitude practice, I am also aware that taking practical steps towards improved self-care should not be brushed aside. Be grateful that you are swamped with party invitations, but don’t feel obligated to attend all of them.

Here are some helpful tips for INFJs and HSPs and the people who love them. Take them with copious grains of salt and discernment. You will know what works best for you.

1 – Goody – goody, my inner self replies. INFJs love lists, plans and calendars! We are not the most flexible people on the planet and can get stressed out with spontaneous or last-minute changes in plans. It is OK to decline an invitation or suggest a quiet get together after the holidays. Know your limits and respect them.

2 – If you are at a dinner or party with an INFJ or HSP and engage them in small talk or gossip, don’t be surprised if they tune you out or head for the nearest exit. We like to communicate, but we don’t do meaningless chat. Ask us about what we are reading or our favorite causes. Tell us about your hopes and dreams or your ideal travel destination. Don’t bore us with tales about The Housewives of Las Vegas or details on your brother’s latest get rich scheme.

3 – We get overstimulated quickly and crowds make us uneasy. I have learned to pick and choose my social activities wisely. If I find myself in a setting that is too loud or negative or just plain chaotic, I will seek out someone whose company I enjoy and strike up a conversation. If that isn’t possible, I will excuse myself and leave. I am not shy and can easily initiate conversations. INFJs and HSPs are not necessarily shy wallflowers. Where you fit on the continuum will determine how introverted and sensitive you are, and that is often subject to change. Introversion does not imply shyness anyway. It means that we are drained by people. We are energized by going within.  I love interacting with people in real-time, but I need to have some control over my environment and know my limitations.

4 – If you notice you are overindulging in food or alcohol, it may be a sign that you are stuffing your emotions. I have coped with over-stimulation in the past by drinking way too much and I don’t really like to drink! Listen to the messages that your feelings deliver to you instead, and don’t behave in ways that don’t serve you. There is a difference between enjoying holiday treats and self-medicating. If you do not know the difference, get some support so that you can learn what works for you. Ask yourself if it is really worth it to alter your brain chemistry just to be in a room with people.

5 – Sensitive types often react to stress in a variety of ways. We are prone to migraines, digestive issues, and allergies. Some fragrances and noises trigger these reactions. Do not take it personally if we cannot be around your perfume or cigarette smoke or accompany you to a rave at the local warehouse. It isn’t you , it is us. Sensitivity is such a tremendous gift, but it comes with a price.

6 – In this hyper-consumerism culture, the pressure is high to buy, buy, buy. INFJs love to please our loved ones with unique, person-specific gifts. We delight in these details and remember that you adored that one-of- a- kind brooch while window shopping last July. Again, it is important to be kind to yourself. It really is okay if you cannot afford to buy everything for everyone all of the time. We can be so hard on ourselves and that self-criticism can be projected onto others when it gets out of hand. Let yourself off your self-imposed hook. If money is tight or time is limited, use your creativity instead. Bake, sew, knit, draw, or  photograph personal tokens of holiday cheer. It really is the thought that counts at the end of the day. This is why I really prefer Thanksgiving!

7 – Last but not least, feed your soul. HSPs and INFJs really benefit from the following activities: walk in nature, meditate, pray, create art, visit places of beauty, do yoga, take frequent breaks from your routine to just BE, write, play an instrument, read…  The more you love yourself, the better prepared you are to be in the world, but not of the world.

Please let me know if I forgot anything. Fellow INFJs and HSPs, I know you are out there!
