Compassion – A Life Changer
Copyright © by Veronica Hay
 Compassion    A Life Changer

I have been thinking a lot lately about the word “compassion” and how there does not seem to be a lot of it around these days. Judgement is much more prevalent. I think because sometimes when we judge another, it makes us feel temporarily better, like we are smarter or more superior in some way. But judgement never soothes the wounded heart or opens the tender soul the way compassion does. It closes them down, affects our health and the quality of our life. Perhaps many other well intentioned people feel that by being compassionate to others they are allowing or even encouraging them to show weakness, and not be strong enough to rise above life’s challenges. Nothing could be further from the truth.

I am not talking about sympathy or pity as these certainly do not empower anyone. Most people don’t want or need pity, but they certainly do require “love”. We all require love. As I have said many times before, it is quite frankly all that matters in the end. What I am talking about here is the simple joy of human kindness and caring. I am talking about sensitivity, warmth, tenderness, and big heartedness.

And so, I implore you to ask yourself where and with whom you could be more “compassionate today? Where could you reach out, surprise someone who is going through a very difficult time and let them know, that while you may never be able to truly understand or even relate to what they may be going through, your heart goes out to their suffering and turmoil? Please resist the need to fix them or offer any advice that they have not asked you for. Just ensure them that you are holding them in deep compassion, bright light and tender love. And that you are seeing them emerging victorious, however that may look like for them. Remember that sometimes a kind word to someone on their journey can and may even save a life. So, please don’t hold back.

And the person to start with today with this process is YOURSELF! Offer true kindness and compassion to yourself for all you have gone through to get you to where you are now, in this moment, no matter what that may have been.

And so, I would like to take this opportunity to send my deep love and heartfelt compassion out to every single soul who visits this blog. Your strength and courage has served to uplift all of us and moved us forward. I acknowledge each and every one of you individually for coming this far. I treasure your presence here and I salute you. I wish you Godspeed on your journey, my dear and precious friends.

Love and blessings, Veronica

 Dont Give Up On Your Miracle!A friend was telling me about a serious medical condition that they were experiencing some time ago which went on for several months. It was truly an awful situation to go through and had inflicted them with much pain and anxiety.  The medical doctors were not able to help her except to make things worse. My heart went out to her just listening to her story and knowing that she had experienced so much anguish deeply saddened me. But then out of the blue, she simply said “And then one morning I woke up and the condition was gone, it had totally disappeared and has never returned since and I know in my heart that it never will”.(And it never has.)

I was overwhelmed with JOY when I heard her say that and filled with wonder once again at the possibility of a “miracle” happening at any moment, in spite of the circumstances one may find oneself in.

It was a matter of “grace”, a true gift and a reminder for me and I hope for you, reading this here, that anything is possible and to never give up believing that things can and often do change for the better in an instant.

I just wanted to share this story with you all here this morning. So, no matter what you may be going through in your own life, emotional turmoil or a physical disorder, know somewhere deep in your heart that there is hope, there is love, there is Joy and it is waiting for you. Never give up believing in the possibility of having your very own miracle. And never give up encouraging others to do the same.

 Captured by MIRACLES   Overtaken with JOYCopyright (c) 2014 by Veronica Hay -
www.veronicahay.com

Let MIRACLES sneak into your life today while your back is turned.
And JOY seep into your being when you’re not looking and overtake you.

Let the INSIGHTS on the other side of your mind
tug away at your soul and their divine messages
whisper into your tender hearted ears.

Let your HEART disclose the answers to the questions you have been searching for while you were looking the other way.

Let your BODY tell you what it wants to eat, to play with, to think, to encounter, to experience and to rejoice and delight in.

Let your FINGERS write or type or play
what they have been wanting to reveal to you
but you haven’t allowed them up until now
because you have been too busy or pre-occupied.

Let your EYES see in spite of the darkness
that may surround you when they are closed and shut.

Let the SILENCE awaken truths locked away until now and reveal hidden meanings in the simplest of things.

Set your EMOTIONS free, let your feelings dance, feel the sensations surface and ignite.

Let the PASSION deep inside you bubble up and burst forth into the biggest, brightest smile and let it overtake any sadness, grief, or anger that still may be lurking there.

Let your LAUGHTER surface in the most unusual ways and in the most unexpected places and uplift those lost and disillusioned souls who share your path.

Let your life be Captured by Miracles and Overtaken with JOY – Now!

I felt compelled to write my own tribute to actor Robin Williams.
I am sharing it
here below.

Take care and have a peaceful day.

A Tribute to Robin Williams  1951 – 2014
Copyright © by Veronica Hay August 13, 2014 – All Rights Reserved.

Robin, I am currently working on a “How To Manual” for those delicate souls arriving on the earth plane. It is something I have felt we have always needed and it gives step by step instructions on how to really live each day with passion, fire and exuberance. Your face is plastered on every single page, your voice heard in every word, your brilliance demonstrated at every turn, all making it the next best seller.

During your time here on earth, you were totally and utterly yourself, the most authentic and real piece of work I have ever encountered. You thought outside the box. Hell, you threw away the box! You gave new meaning to the words passion, spirit, vulnerability. You didn’t care what any of us thought of you and if you did at any point you never let it stop you. Life was too important for that. Life was too big for that, too grand for that.  The world could not contain you, nor did it want to. It applauded your every move and spurred you on as every cell and atom in your amazing and magnificent body danced and rocked in everything  you did.

You were multi-talented and multi-faceted, like a sparkling diamond left to heat up in the sun; warm, generous beyond measure, compassionate and humane to those less fortunate, infinitely kind, loving, giving and big hearted.

You saw things in people and places and life that most of us were blind to. Much of it served to fuel the rocket ship inside you that blasted off every chance it got to places most of us only dreamed of venturing into. Some of it scared you, even haunted you, but never deterred you for very long.

I think you shined the most, at least for me, on the silver screen and I remember a profound moment when you changed my life forever. It was in a dark movie theatre all those years ago in the middle of the film, “Dead Poet’s Society”  where I sat and listened to you speak words that I knew were meant for me and only me! You spoke them with a passion that made my jaw drop and touched my heart in ways I didn’t know were possible. I went back there every day for a week and sat and waited for you to say those words to me again, and again, those words that sent me in a life changing direction forever. And even though you didn’t write those words yourself, it was the way you said them to me, just to me, that ripped me open and exposed my soul.

You were an extraordinary piece of work, a phenomena greater than the Grand Canyon or the Eiffel tower and just as recognizable. You didn’t give a damn what people thought of you and when you were performing it was only you and only me and only the hungry masses who waited with bated breath for what ridiculously funny or incredibly silly or terribly morose thing you were about to do. Most of the time I think you had no idea yourself and just gave your body, mind and spirit over to something greater that wanted to come through, that wanted to be born, that wanted to celebrate all that life had to offer.

It was as if the pixies and the fairies and the aliens of which you introduced us and seduced us and stole our hearts with and all kinds of strange and eccentric beings were given birth through you. You set them free, you set yourself free and the world applauded you and laid itself at your feet in gratitude. Nature understood you, the sky welcomed you home, the wind blew at your command, the sun got up early to shine its glorious face upon you for the miracles you created for all of us here.

You were not perfect, far from it! But who of us ever is? You were totally and utterly human and vulnerable in every way. You felt great pain and experienced deep sadness, but isn’t that part of the journey that we all sign up for? Who of us has not called out in anguish, cried tears from a broken heart or felt remorse, confusion, despair, grief and melancholy? Who of us has not wished we ever made the choice to be here? Who of us has not had at least a moment or two, when life became so overwhelming that giving up seemed like the only option? Who of us has not been seduced even in some small way by the myriad of physical offerings on this planet to help stop the pain, at least for the moment and gave into that?

Yet, even in your darkest hour, in your choice to end it all, though a sad and tragic one, you made a difference for so many suffering souls who have been hiding their pain from the world. Now perhaps they will be able to talk about it, to let go of the shame surrounding it and open up to the truth inside them. I believe your death has greater significance here, perhaps more than even your life, in giving so many, finally a voice, a chance to be heard and perhaps understood for the very first time, with compassion and love. Even in your death, your genius shines through and is allowing the healing to begin for so many.

I for one am proud to have been on the same planet at the same time you were. I am honoured to have walked on the same soil that you did, and breathed the same intoxicating air. I am in awe of what you have taught all of us. You made it all worthwhile for me and for so many of us.

And when you passed over all of heaven rejoiced to have you home again, a job very well done, a life very well lived, a mission courageously accomplished, a legacy filled with grace and love. You will never be forgotten and the laughter, joy and magic you gave us all will continue to sustain us in ways and places not yet even imagined.

For all of this and for all that you are and will continue to be now and in eternity, I salute you and I thank you.

Veronica Hay

 Non AttachmentIt is very important not to be attached to the outcome of things that we do. Not to care so much or at all for that matter about what people think of us. This is very often easier said than done and something that I have been working on of late.

We have grown accustomed to feeling good when people approve and admire us and tell us so and feeling hurt or taken aback when they criticize us.

But this always sets us up to hand the power over how we feel about ourselves to someone else.

We need to be able to do, say, and act from our own authentic place, in spite of the outcome, to be able to simply do or say what calls to us, because it brings us joy and / or feels like it is something we must say or do and let go of the outcome or consequences.

This has been very true with my own writing. My mailing list, websites and this blog, consist of people in various stages of evolution. Sometimes, what I have to say may confuse or even upset someone, but that doesn’t mean that I have to be afraid to say it. Some people may take what I say and run with it, allowing it to open them up to insights and possibilities they had not even considered yet which is always my hope and intention. Others may think I am just crazy and unsubscribe or not return here. Their response must not matter to me, otherwise it will colour what I have to offer and not be as pure and heartfelt as I would like it to be. People will always pick up on that at a deep level. You cannot fool them. When you come from your heart, it always shines through. When you are pretending, because you want to be liked, admired or accepted, you are really not fooling anyone but yourself and it never works out in the long run.

I have always wanted to offer something deeper here, something much more meaningful than a nice, uplifting quotation. Don’t get me wrong, that is still a great thing to offer but there are hundreds of places online where people can get that. But much is going on in the world right now and we are moving far beyond all of that and into places we have not ventured into before. Many are confused, in turmoil and struggling. It is my feeling that people want and need so much more now and it is my hope to fill that void regardless of where it may take me.

I simply need to be true to myself and offer what I have to give or what comes up for me at the time. And it may be a very light hearted piece such as I sent out last Friday, about making wishes for others, or something much more profound. As I said, this is something I work on everyday still.

I thought this might be something for you to think about in your own life this morning. Where are you being true to yourself and where do you hesitate to come from your own authentic place and why?

Wishing you a true, meaningful, authentic and heartfelt day.

Let JOY be a bigger part of your life today.
Seek it out.

Look for it in the cracks, in the crevices,
in every little nook and cranny.

Immerse yourself in its wonder.
Feel its power.
Let its light embrace all that you are.
See it coming around hallways and opening doors for you.

Play with it, cajole it, caress it.
Surrender to its impulses.
Succumb to its temptations.

It will not steer you wrong or lead you astray.
Walk with it, talk with it. Let it lead the way.
Make it real for you.

It is always wanting to show you what is possible.
It will bless and heal your body in ways you had not imagined.

It sleeps in your soul. Awaken it.
It knows the secrets of your heart,
the ones you are not even aware of yet.

Let it tickle your fancy, pinch your funny bone,
restore peace and ease to your day.

Share it with those you come into contact with.
Even the ones that annoy you.

It will pave the way for riches and mend your broken heart.

It will whisper ancient truths into your ears.
And you will begin to remember why you came here
and how much you are needed and loved,
especially in these troubling times.

It is your friend, your confidant, your long lost lover,
come home again to steal your heart.

Welcome it in NOW!

 A Smiling HeartSomething that happened this morning made my “heart smile”. It was a great way to start the day. A smile in one’s heart is very different from a smile on your face. It is much deeper, more profound, and touches both the giver and the receiver in ways you may have never noticed before.

A smile in your heart makes your body quiver with delight. It whispers to your cells and encourages them to move towards the perfection that they are always aspiring to be, when we are not interfering with our own natural healing by telling them things that are just not true.

A smile in your heart lightens your burdens, restores your soul and quiets the endless chatter. It awakens memories of truth laying dormant inside. And it gently tickles you in all the right places, sometimes causing spontaneous laughter and mirth.

So, my dear friends, what kind word, deed or action could you say or do today that would bring a smile to someone else’s heart as well as your own?

Have a beautiful day, with a smile in your heart all day long.

 A New Way of BEING in the WorldThe planet is speeding up and things are coming to the forefront to be dissolved. We are moving through a lot of old stuff (issues) and belief systems and letting go of the density that surrounds them. So, many of you are already noticing or will be noticing things coming up in your face to release, GENTLY. You no longer need to struggle with this as in the past.

Lately, what I have been noticing is how much we want still to be so much in control of things and other people. In the last few weeks, I have had people ‘want’ things from me, that for a number of reasons, I am not prepared or able to give them. As a result, these relationships are starting to break down or fall apart, which is exactly what is supposed to happen. We can no longer cling to things or people who no longer serve us and letting go can often be difficult. We like the familiar, the habitual, the comfortable, and it takes great courage to venture forth into the unknown, without what feels like our safety net.

But we need to let go of our desire to control and manipulate others into giving us what we want and think we need, and begin to just love and accept them, ALLOW them to just BE and begin to see the blessings that they have for us, just the way they are, when our eyes are truly open to the gifts they have to offer. We need to finally let go of the judgements and the conditions we put upon others in order to SET OURSELVES FREE.

And, we need to be “who we are” whatever that may be at this moment in time on the planet. Many of us don’t have a clue what that really is as we have been playing games and practicing roles, and doing what we thought we “should” be doing, for so long, that we have lost touch with our inner core, our authenticity, our passions, our true self and consequently with our emerging divinity.

So, I would suggest that you slowly start to notice how you act in the world, how you respond to the circumstances and people that are presented to you, what messages you are giving out by these responses and actions, many of which you may not even be aware of and what automatic roles and games you may still be playing. Right now, may be the perfect time to just give yourself permission to let them all go and venture forth into a new way of BEING in the world that is much more amazing than you may have ever experienced before. It’s certainly worth the effort.

I wish you Godspeed on your journey, my dear and precious friends.
