Facebook Factor

I "friend" people on Facebook for a few reasons. 1) I met them in person. 2) a trusted friend suggested the connection and 3) I enjoyed something that they posted or commented on.

After seeing this picture below, I "friended" Christopher.

"Mitakuye Oyasin. Sunarrow."

He lived in Arizona and we never met in person nor had an in depth conversation.  We did however comment on each other's posts.  He inspired me. I became accustom to seeing his posts in my daily "news feed." When he posted that he was stepping away for awhile to meditate in the desert, it didn't faze me. That was his pattern, but this time he was away longer than normal.  When he finally returned he posted a beautiful piece of artwork with a caption that lead me to write the personal message below.

Dear Christopher,
I was wondering where you were. I saw the painting and read your post a few times. I slowly, very slowly realized what it truly means.  I never thought that meeting a friend through Facebook would have such a deep connection to my being.  We have never met but seeing only a glimpse of your being, I already care about you.  How can that be?  I thank you for sharing everything that you do with everyone on Facebook, your thoughts, feelings, art and spirit.  I’m not trying to send you a farewell message as that’s not the point of the message. But please know that even though there is distance physically either by location on the Earth or in Spirit, your connections has been made.  Much love and blessings to you and May you keep your heart a glow no matter what happens.  Love and light, Naomi

Hello Naomi, thank you for sharing your thoughts, you see on a quantum level within the quantum heart we are as one. As far as my message on facebook goes many people were wondering where i went so i thought to be truthful and simply tell them, plus this is a teaching moment for us all.

Wow.. his "life is a teaching moment."  I was also shocked that he stated I "see on a quantum level within the quantum heart we are as one."  I didn't understand what he meant.  I didn't know what to say. Yet, I kept watch as he posted daily messages of hope and love.  Again, he was an inspiration.  Unfortunately, on February 14th, 2013, his posts stopped.  Within two days, one of his close friend's tagged in a post stating that Christopher passed.  I swear, the moment it was out, his wall was covered with messages from everyone on his list.  He had friends all over the world. I wasn't the only one that felt the connection.  We all were grieving together and missed him.  I was very fortunate to know him in a virtual space. I was grateful that I wrote to him because I had to say something. We both had a heart connection.  Maybe that's what he meant by the quantum heart we are as one.

As time passed, people continued to tag him in posts.  I, then, made additional connections through him.  If he only knew. I still visit his page to view the beautiful art and his message to the world. Guess what, I peeked now and someone posted something new to honour him.

Now that's the FACEBOOK FACTOR.

Watching Over You

This healing song came to me last night.

Watching Over You

You are being
watched by loved ones.
Everybody loves to
see you smile.

Oh, watch how you feel 
when you go to sleep.
I am with you darling.
I am watching over you.
Over you.
Over you.

I am here beside you.  
I am watching over you 
with a loving eye.

Connected By the Unknown

“Mr. Sanderson, what are you doing here?” I said aloud.  Brenda didn’t know what I was talking about. 

“Mr. Sanderson?” she repeated with a look of surprise.

“I’m sorry but it’s Mr. Sanderson.  He was my middle school teacher and he wants to speak too.” I directed the statement to Brenda.  “Mr. Sanderson, I’m doing a reading could you please come back later?” I said aloud again.

“You know Mr. Sanderson, the teacher with red hair?” Brenda spoke up.

“Well, he had grey hair when I knew him, but he always told us he was a red head. Wait, you know Mr. Sanderson?” I said with a puzzling look on my face.

I was giving Brenda a spirit reading.  We met during a Reiki Level II attunement.  We connected immediately and felt a kinship right away. When I shared that I did spirit readings she wanted one.  I was connected to her cousin who had a high and regal energy.  He felt like a spiritual leader or teacher.  He was misunderstood by the family and he wanted to explain that she too carried that energy. 

Yet, Mr. Sanderson kept interrupting and calling me, cherry blossom.  I had to say something.  Brenda and I stared at each other.  How can that be possible that we both had the same teacher? She was at least 30 years my senior. It was all surreal.  Imagine my surprise that Brenda and I had much more in common that we knew.  Thanks to Mr. Sanderson for speaking up.  SNORT.  Not only did we share Mr. Sanderson as a teacher, we shared the same Reiki Master.  How cool was that? 

Have you ever encountered someone where you felt completely attuned to?  It’s happening more and more to people.  It’s that deep sense of knowing that fills you.  You look into someone’s eyes and say, “ahhh, I know you.  I know you.”  What do you do with that energy?  Is it always a blessing to recognize someone before having a conversation with them?  It could be a blessing.

I believe that we have deep connections with people everywhere we go.  It’s up to you to follow through with those feelings.  Sometimes people think, ‘that’s my soul mate.  Oh God, you’re my soul mate!  I’m in love.’

Hold up. Wait a second.  Not so fast.

That person is a soul mate.  A mate, a friend, a person who if you let them know you may be a major influence in your life.  It depends on how you respond to the encounter.  What’s the point of this entry?  Start the conversation, any conversation.  There may be someone or something out there beyond the known looking to support you.  Take a chance but take your time.  Little by little it will be revealed to you.
