What’s one of your favorite Thanksgiving memories?

What’s one of your favorite Thanksgiving memories?

I was thinking about this today, thinking about this Thanksgiving and remembering a very special Thanksgiving when I was young. It’s still one of my favorite memories and I am fortunate to have lots of them.

I think I was around 5 years old and it was the night before Thanksgiving.

A big truck pulled up to our house and seven or so of my dad’s friends all came into our dining room. They started to bring in boxes of food, veggies, turkeys, and cans and all sorts of stuff was piled up everywhere. Then, my dad pulled out a long list and all the men started filling the boxes from this list. I knew some of the men, but not all of them.

Of course I asked what it was all about.

My dad told me this was a list from the priests and ministers and rabbi from our town of all the people who may not have enough money to have a good Thanksgiving dinner. So he and his friends got donations of food and money from stores and people to fill these boxes so everyone could have a great Thanksgiving.

I asked to help and I got to count out the potatoes and put them in the right boxes. They kept talking and laughing and working until there were piles of boxes filled with food in the living room and dining room.

Once the boxes were packed they took out a map and put it on the table. My dad explained that they were figuring out the best roads to take so they could deliver everything.

When I asked him who the families were, he smiled and said, “We don’t know. We ask the priests and rabbi not to give us their names, just their addresses so they won’t feel funny or embarrassed that they don’t have enough food this year.

I know my eye must have been wide open at this point. Then he said, “We drive to their house, put the food on the porch or front step. Then we ring the bell and drive away.”

I was in awe. I didn’t know what to say, but I was so proud of him.

They took all of the boxes to the truck and came back in to say goodbye.
Then I looked at all the men in my house and saw they had hats on. I’d never seen those hats before and so I asked one of the men what they were.

He said, “We are veterans and these are the hats we wore when we fought for our country.”

I looked again and all the men smiled. They wore their hats, stood taller and looked at me. And my dad said, “You know, we all just really like to help.”

Then they left laughing and joking and got into the truck and drove away.

I’m tearing up right now, remembering that band of brothers in my house making Thanksgiving for people they would never really know.

Thank you Dad, and all your friends for a simple memory that still moves and inspires me today!

Love, Self-Discovery and Shopping

We can’t get enough love.

We have to sing about it and celebrate it and tell people about our love. We want and need more love in our lives and our world.

Self-discovery is a pathway to love.

Self-discovery is you, engaging in your Self to find your beauty, love and purpose. When you’re really and continually engaged in your own self-discovery, you open to your magnificence. Through self-knowing you resonate to those qualities even more. You open to the love within and the love that radiates.

Shopping is actually a journey of self-discovery.

You see, when you’re shopping, you’re looking for things that enhance and complement your life. To do that, to find what you’re looking for, you have to know who you are and what you want. You have to know your comfort level, your dreams, what you want to do, what inspires you. And then you go shopping. Shopping is your quest! And when  you think of shopping, the energy shifts into clarity, fun and the unexpected!

In this episode of the Cosmic Coffee Break, I’m guiding you in a meditation and wisdom teaching, Love, Self-Discovery and Shopping, to will help you connect with the power of self-discovery in shopping and attune to the true frequencies and multi-level qualities of love today!

If you think about looking for love as shopping, then you can see the journey and play in the beauty of your own truth.

Join me for this fabulous journey of Love, Self-Discovery and Shopping!

Stop In The Name Of Love

Have you ever said something you wish you could take back?

You said a little more than you should or said something by mistake and now it’s too late. And you kept on talking, kept on putting your foot in your mouth.

Maybe you hurt someone, inadvertently or even intentionally and you just wish you hadn’t! And for whatever reason, you had to continue to explain, even though you knew it wasn’t getting any better. The momentum of saying what you were feeling or thinking was stronger than your better judgment or your compassion at the time.

Don’t you wish you just caught yourself and stopped?

Let Freedom Ring

It’s in my heart and mind today, to share the spirit and blessing of freedom. Independence Day in the US is the day when the people joined together to declare their freedom. It was a statement of strength, recognition and hope. Together, they met and agreed on this very powerful sentence of declaration that changed our world.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are
Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

The Declaration of Independence is even a statement of intention and focus to say, “we are free to create our lives and our world, to live and be free to pursue our path, purpose and dreams.”

Holding this beauty of spirit and life, I’ve created this short video, Let Freedom Ring, that honors that truth within ourselves. Let Freedom Ring is a poem of invocation, to invoke the powers, blessings and hope of freedom for all peoples on our world. We are the ones, who must create our world and hold the light of the highest in all we do, say and become. We are the ones who can show a clear path and light the way to the love, honor and truth we want as guiding forces in our lives and our world.

So, today, I share my poem, Let Freedom Ring, to invoke the blessings and the forces of freedom that live within us and that can echo words of empowerment, strength, beauty, love, harmony and inspiration for us all. As a poem, I hope you find it art. As an invocation, I hope as you listen, you feel the energies being called into play.

Right now, take a slow deep breath.
Center yourself.
Take a deep breath and affirm the words.

You may feel my voice calling in the freedom, calling in the energies of freedom and calling the bells to ring for our growth, spiritual expansion, healing and love.

Let Freedom Ring.

Please share the video with friends and family, so they can feel and experience the expansion and new possibilities in their lives that are invoked by this poem and video.

Thank You
Many Blessings,

FILL YOUR HEART

Blog-Lumari-FillYourHeart

It’s a beautiful morning. I am an early riser, so I’m available to watch the dark quiet skies filled with stars, slowly brighten into morning colors. I’m up before the birds. Today, the skies blush with dawn. The birds sing and my ‘love doves’ gently call out to the morning.

I sit drinking organic Sumatran coffee that is hand roasted by a local company, listening to music. And I write. Quiet mornings are a perfect space for me to write. Two new books are on their way. Finished and soon, ready to be published and shared with you. I’m in the flow of writing and two more books are ready for their births. Writing fills my heart. The words, rhythms and guidance allow and encourage a beautiful flow.

Every day, I do things that nurture my spirit and connect me to the higher aspects of living inspired. I do things to fill my heart. That’s what I want to share with you today. Continue reading
