LIVE AND LEARN

Read the last Daily Message titled, ELECTRIC WORD - LIFE!

Audio'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]

I seemed to have run out of minutes the past two days to post a Daily Message. This morning's Musical DLG ™  (Musical Download from God ™ ) called "Dream On" by Aerosmith was a nice surprise. I don't recall ever waking up to this song and you would think at one time or another this would have been one of my awakenings simply due to the spiritual overtones but when I do hear this song it always reminds me of my Source.

It's no secret, I enjoy experiencing Life on the fly through loud, active and nutty participation rather than through quiet voyeurism. When I'm old, wrinkled, completely gray and rubbing my gums together, my great-great-grandchildren will be braiding my hair as I tell them another crazy story. Each story is going to have the same moral, "Live and learn." I'd rather live and learn, rather than curl back in fear because I don't know what's around the corner. I'd rather live and learn through listening, laughing and sometimes debating or even arguing with the different people I connect with along the way. I'd rather live and learn through my own curious bad decisions, rather than have never risked. I can't even imagine! And I'd rather say, "Oh hell yeah I did!" rather than say I didn't because I was too busy to stop, close my computer screen and get in the car. This is my 50th year folks and I guarantee you, when I look in the mirror and see the lines on my face, I'm set on having a 'Live and Learn' memory (Good or bad) to go with each of them.

DREAM ON
by Aerosmith
(The lyrics are below the video)

Every time that I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face getting clearer
The past is gone
It went by, like dusk to dawn
Isn't that the way
Everybody's got their dues in life to pay

Yeah, I know nobody knows
Where it comes and where it goes
I know it's everybody's sin
You got to lose to know how to win

Half my life
Is in books written pages
Lived and learned from fools and
From sages
You know it's true
All the things come back to you

Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laugh, sing for the tears
Sing with me, if it's just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the Good Lord will take you away, yeah

Yeah, sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laugh, sing for the tear
Sing with me, if it's just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away

Dream On Dream On Dream On
Dream until the dream come true
Dream On Dream On Dream On
Dream until your dream comes true
Dream On Dream On Dream On
Dream On Dream On
Dream On Dream On

Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laugh, sing for the tear
Sing with me, if it's just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away
Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laugh, sing for the tear
Sing with me, if it's just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away

This morning's Musical DLG ™  (Musical Download from God ™ ) called "Ray of Light" by Madonna actually started my awakening at 11:53 PM last night. When I heard my DLG click 'on' again, just like an alarm clock is was 12:16 AM, then 1:23 AM, then at 2:47 AM I thought back to God, "Okay. Alright already. I'm getting up." I'm a fairly energetic gal who can run on four hours sleep easily but that 11:53 PM business was even too early for me. I can't remember the last time I had a song wake me up with such persistence.

I Love this song because it always feels so liberating, psychedelic, exuberant and full of spiritual ecstasy. I remember in an interview Madonna said this song was about coming to terms with her responsibility as an individual. This was after she had made her way to the teachings of the Kabbalah long after her more radical moments. For me, this song also has a responsibility tone. With about a 95 percent success rate, it's fairly easy for me to let my frustrations, tears or any kind of sadness go down with the Sun. It doesn't happen all the time but most of the time that is fact because it's what I choose to do. I'm much too concerned about happiness to choose otherwise. That's how I tailor my Life. Quite honestly, it's too much dang work to wake up frustrated, in tears, sad or fearful; therefore, my choices are all about creating my piece heaven on earth in my own whacky little universe. It's not as self-serving as it sounds, but yet, it is. So in a sense, this song is about me being a responsible individual to myself first. When I'm happy, I'm freakin' contagious!!! And as I always say, "Never make anyone more responsible for your livelihood and happiness than yourself. That's either a lot of pressure on them or a loss of control from you." Quicker than a ray of light she's flying, Quicker than a ray of light I'm flying. The lyrics are below the video. Enjoy!~

RAY OF LIGHT
by Madonna
(The lyrics are below the video)

Zephyr in the sky at night I wonder
Do my tears of mourning sink beneath the Sun
She's got herself a universe gone quickly
For the call of thunder threatens everyone

And I feel like I just got home
And I feel
And I feel like I just got home
And I feel

Faster than the speeding light she's flying
Trying to remember where it all began
She's got herself a little piece of heaven
Waiting for the time when Earth shall be as one

And I feel like I just got home
And I feel
And I feel like I just got home
And I feel

Quicker than a ray of light
Quicker than a ray of light
Quicker than a ray of light

Zephyr in the sky at night I wonder
Do my tears of mourning sink beneath the Sun
She's got herself a universe gone quickly
For the call of thunder threatens everyone

And I feel
Quicker than a ray of light
Then gone for
Someone else shall be there
Through the endless years

She's got herself a universe
She's got herself a universe
She's got herself a universe

And I feel
And I feel
And I feel like I just got home
And I feel

Quicker than a ray of light she's flying
Quicker than a ray of light I'm flying

This morning's Musical DLG ™  (Musical Download from God ™ ) was, "Her Eyes" by Pat Monahan. I used this song before in a Daily Message about three years ago and as it turns out, it just so happens to be 'The Scorpion King's song for me. It's interesting that this song came after an evening of him making fun of my quirks, peculiarities and oddities. If he was standing here right now, he might even chime in and say, "crazy." Yesterday we were laughing about the fact that he had no idea what he was getting into when he met me and how he definitely has his hands full.

You see, my Scorpion King isn't really interested in astrology, Feng Shui, chakra's, Reiki and all of the other metaphysical, spiritual and health practices that I wade into. I'd say he's a spiritual man, only much different spiritually than myself. The man has circled the globe several times and has seen many difficult cultures so his influences are quite different than mine. He understands that my spirituality also includes a serious does of religion with a hefty dose of philosophy. Huh? Can you mix spirituality, religion and philosophy? I can, I will and I do. We are most definitely two different people. Our energies are more closely related when it comes to the great outdoors, socializing, nutrition, movement and exercise. We even do Yoga together. All of the other stuff, is all a little 'out there' to him. And that's okay because he respects what I do and gets that it is important to me. Just like I don't have to be so enamoured with what he is into but I respect it just the same because it's enjoyment and fulfillment to him.

Well last night after brushing my teeth, the funny bug kicked in, so I ran into the bedroom and did a flying dive into bed. As I quickly settled myself unable to hold back my giggling, the Scorpion King shook his head saying, "Oh yeah, leave me to do all of your Feng Shui baloney." Only the word wasn't baloney, know what I'm sayin'? You see, I like the bedroom door closed because of the layout of the hallway to the bedroom, it's an energy (Feng Shui) thing. And I like the bathroom door to the bedroom closed as well, it's an energy thing. I like the closet door closed too, not because of the closet monster but because it's an energy thing. Needless to say, we always get a huge chuckle out of Life when he's doing anything remotely in alignment with my whacky energetic quirks. The last thing he whispered to me last night after we stopped laughing was, "She's a Gemini Capricorn," which got the funny ball rolling all over again because it refers to a line in today's song. I happen to be a Sun Sign Gemini with a Capricorn Moon. Everything about this song is me, except the Mets tickets. Enjoy the relationship comic relief and Happy Valentine's Day!~

This morning's Musical DLG ™  (Musical Download from God ™ ) was, "Let's Go Crazy" by Prince. I went to a Prince concert 'once', which was enough. I'm not a fan of performances with multiple costume changes. Cher did the same thing. I go to a concert for the music, not the costume. (Rant, Rant) See, now that's why rock n' rollers are such great performers. They get out there, jam, sweat and sing there heart out until they are soaked and out of breath. I remember after a Bruce Springsteen concert, he wore the audience out and we left breathing heavy as if we were the one on stage. It was crazy!

And speakin' of crazy, that brings me to today's Musical DLG ™ . I just Love this song because it gets me all fired up throwing caution to the wind! And I Love the way the song starts out like you're at a funeral. When you think about it, a lot of people live their Life like it's a funeral with long faces and a melancholy attitude. Well, I'm a person who absolutely believes in the afterworld, which is another reason why I'm livin' this Life outloud, crazy, on my terms and full of electricity. I'm just takin' it all in, until POOF, when I turn to Light and leave the planet. By the way, those of you who are parents, owe it to your children to show them some crazy regardless if it wasn't shown to you as a child or what others might think. I suppose the motivation behind this song is loosen your strings because some of us are wound just a little too dang tight and seriousness has over-run the fun. It's time for some crazy!

As a side note - typically I like to post the video with lyrics because it doesn't take as long to buffer (load) but I couldn't find a video with just the lyrics and music. So I guess let it play through and come back in a few minutes and enjoy. Lyrics are below the video.

LET'S GO CRAZY
by Prince
(Lyrics below the video)

Dearly beloved
We are gathered here today
to get through this thing called Life

Electric word Life
It means forever and that's a mighty long time
But I'm here to tell you
There's something else
The afterworld

A world of never ending happiness
You can always see the sun, day or night

So when you call up that shrink in Beverly Hills
You know the one - Dr. Everything'll Be Alright
Instead of asking him how much of your time is left
Ask him how much of your mind, baby

'Cuz in this life
Things are much harder 'than' in the afterworld
In this life
You're on your own

And if de-elevator tries to bring you down
Go crazy - punch a higher floor

If you don't like the world you're living in
Take a look around you
At least you got friends

You see I called my old lady
For a friendly word
She picked up the phone
Dropped it on the floor
(ah, ah) is all I heard

Are we gonna let de-elevator
Bring us down
Oh, no Let's Go!

Let's go crazy
Let's get nuts
Let's look for the purple banana
'Til they put us in the truck, let's go!

We're all excited
But we don't know why
Maybe it's cuz
We're all gonna die

And when we do (When we do)
What's it all for (What's it all for)
You better live now
Before the grim reaper come knocking on your door

Tell me, are we gonna let de-elevator bring us down
Oh, no let's go!

Let's go crazy
Let's get nuts
Look for the purple banana
'Til they put us in the truck, let's go!

C'mon baby
Let's get nuts
Yeah
Crazy

Let's go crazy

Are we gonna let de-elevator bring us down
Oh, no let's go!
Go crazy

I said let's go crazy (Go crazy)
Let's go, let's go
Go
Let's go

Dr. Everything'll be alright
Will make everything go wrong
Pills and thrills and daffodills will kill
Hang tough children

He's coming
He's coming
Coming

Take me away!

I'm a big Dave Grohl fan. OKAY, alright already! I'm crushed-out on him. If you aren't familiar with Dave, he is the former drummer of Nirvana and Scream before he became the lead vocalist and guitarist of the Foo Fighters. Basically, he's just a freak of nature on talent and I think he's awesome. Anyway, this morning's Musical DLG ™  (Musical Download from God ™ ) called, "Learn to Fly" was by the Foo Fighters. Dave Grohl says, "This song is about the search for some sort of inspiration, the search for signs of life that will make you feel alive."

This song always gets me wound up and ready to throw wrenches. I have an insane amount of energy and figuring out ways to channel it can be quite the challenge. I'm always looking for new signs of Life, something new to experience, teach or learn. Throwing wrenches is a term I use when I'm ready for some new action, a self-made revolution, even if I have to stir the pot wildly and splash the walls. It's not emotional drama I'm after or personal attention for that matter but more along the lines of action coupled with direction, acceleration and positive effect. As I laid there in bed listening to this song play in my head I could visualize myself opening doors with a swift P90X Kenpo Karate kick, smacking all of the red buttons in Life with palm of my hand that set off alarms and opening the windows where my energy bellows out and touches what it's supposed to.

While all of that sounds much like the exciting life of a lively misfit, that's exactly what I could have become, a troubled lively misfit had I not searched for inspiration. I might have preferred to listen to the devil on my left shoulder instead of the angel on my right shoulder. Most importantly, I needed to channel my energy into something constructive and productive. When you are learning to fly, you will know your energy is constructive and productive when there is a sign of Life. And you can start small. It's the difference between clothes on the floor or clothes hanging in the closet. Dishes in the sink or dishes in the cupboards. Look around! If you are looking for inspiration or looking for a sign of Life, start cranking your productive and constructive energy at home and watch your surroundings come to Life. Besides, it's probably time anyway for you to stretch your wings, kick yourself out of your own comfey nest and learn how to fly on your own.

The first video below shows only the lyrics. The second video is the official video of the song. The interesting thing about the second video is it shows the actions of two lively misfits who nearly took down a plane through their antics and the ones who saved the day was the famous band members who were channeling their energy productively and flying high in their career (Dave Grohl and his bandmates). This is two clear examples of the 'channel your energy' spectrum. Notice how all of the bandmates play the roles of the pilots, flight attendants, some passengers and then of course, themselves. Enjoy!~

I just Loved this morning's Musical DLG ™  (Musical Download from God ™ ) called, "Blurry" by Puddle of Mudd. I know, what the heck kind of name is that for a band? This is a fantastic song and you may not recognize it until you hear it. This is one of those songs where I sense that it is me and God having a conversation. In other words, me talking to God and Him responding to me. That's the way the song flows. Most songs are like that to me anyway.

As I laid in bed listening to "Blurry," allowing the message to flow into me in order to carry and distribute to you as His vessel, I was reminded of my own Spiritual Progression Path ™  and how I arrived at this point today. I do a lot of readings for individuals who are are right there on the edge. Not on the edge of suicide but teetering on the edge of tears and crazy. The edge that feels defeated, alone and quite frankly, pissed off and exhausted from all the effort only to go without another day. I laid there watching this forced visual flash across my eyeballs and I knew that I was being reminded on purpose of my own path.

Reflected in the lyrics below, I remember having a conversation with God a couple of times when I felt defeated and couldn't hold on anymore. After closing my clinic and choosing to build this massive website, I had experienced some really tough times getting to this wonderful point that I'm at now. At this writing it was about 8 years ago. I felt like God had blessed me with all of this talent in writing and communication but I could not understand why it was not happening faster. I felt like God had shoved all of this talent in my face, like dangling a carrot and all I was getting back was pain and struggle. I wanted Him to just take it all away if it wasn't going to be easier or if I wasn't going to be successful. I just wanted to be put out of my misery.

Then one day, just when I was getting ready to give up, I checked my statcounter and saw a surge in visitors that lifted my spirits but at the same time scared the pants off of me. This meant I was doing something right and I was going to make it. I was actually going to be successful. It was that point of no return where I had turned the corner. There was no going back now because I had rounded the bend. I was really going to make it. At the same time I had realized the enormous responsibility that I created for myself. OMGosh, what had I done? I started crying out loud to God, "Oh my God, what have I done, what have I done!" What I heard back from His Voice of Authority was, "Oh shut up Loretta, this is what you wanted." It's funny how God speaks to me in a tone that I know and understand.

I believe the enormity of what I'm supposed to do with my work requires that I understand my clients. This is serious work that I do and I believe that I had to prove myself to God because I was going to be His 'someone' just like the song says. Think about it, how could I be His 'someone' giving advice, direction and comfort in walking through the fire, if I haven't walked through the fire myself? As you listen to the song below (grab a tissue) and scroll past the video to the other lyrics I typed out below where I show how God was speaking to me and where I was speaking to Him. Enjoy!~

BLURRY
by Puddle of Mudd
(Lyrics are below the video)

(Me speaking to God)
Everything's so blurry
and everyone's so fake
and everybody's empty
and everything is so messed up

(Me speaking to God)
Pre-occupied without You
I cannot live at all
My whole world surrounds You
I stumble then I crawl

(God speaking to me)
you could be My someone
you could be My scene
you know that I'll protect you
from all of the obscene

(Me speaking to God)
I wonder what You're doing
imagine where You are

(God speaking to me)
There's oceans in between us
but that's not very far

(Me speaking to God)
Can You take it all away
can You take it all away
well Ya shoved it in my face
this pain You gave to me
Can You take it all away
can You take it all away
well Ya shoved it in my face

(God speaking to me)
Everyone is changing
there's no one left that's real
to make up your own ending
and let Me know just how you feel

(Me speaking to God)
cause I am lost without You
I cannot live at all
my whole world surrounds You
I stumble then I crawl

(God speaking to me)
you could be My someone
you could be My scene
you know that I will save you
from all of the unclean

(Me speaking to God)
I wonder what You're doing
I wonder where You are

(God speaking to me)
There's oceans in between us
but that's not very far

(Me speaking to God)
Can You take it all away
can You take it all away
well Ya shoved it in my face
this pain You gave to me
Can You take it all away
can You take it all away
well Ya shoved it in my face

This pain You gave to me

(Me speaking to God)
Nobody told me what You thought
nobody told me what to say

(God speaking to me)
everyone showed you where to turn
told you when to runaway
nobody told you where to hide
nobody told you what to say
everyone showed you where to turn
showed you when to runaway

(Me speaking to God)
Can You take it all away
can You take it all away
well Ya shoved it in my face
this pain You gave to me
ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
this pain You gave to me
You take it all
You take it all away
this pain You gave to me
You take it all away

Audio'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]

It's a been a long time since I've consistently written a Daily Message. As many of you know from previous Daily Messages, I wake up every morning without an alarm clock and instead to a song playing in my head that is clearly audible to me, only it's not audible to anyone else. It doesn't sound like it's in my head, it sounds like it's coming straight out of the radio. I call these early morning awakenings my Musical DLG ™  (Musical Download from God ™ ), which I've experienced since I was a little girl, probably since I was around ten years old. This mornings Musical DLG ™  was "Firework" by Katy Perry. There's no doubt, this is a very over-played song but the last three days have put it completely over the top for me. Every morning for the last three days, there it goes again, "Cause baby your a firework! Come on show 'em what you're worth!" I finally gave in to the Musical DLG ™  knowing that more is being expected of me and I need to get my organized game back on track. I can do more . . so I should do it!

As a result of this mornings Musical DLG ™ , your Spiritual Progression Path is back on track, the Daily Horoscopes are being updated a day early and I will begin writing Daily Messages again according to my Musical DLG ™ . I've had a surprise in the works for you for a couple of months now (since November 2010) and I'm well aware that I can't release it unless everything else is back on track. So there you have it; God has His way of getting through to me like He does anyone else. Generally I don't wait until I experience something three times but this particular song I did and this morning, it finally registered. I'm an original (as you are) and it's time to get my originality back into action. Enjoy the song, the lyrics are below the video. It's an awesome video all the way to the end.

FIREWORK
by Katy Perry
(Lyrics are below the video)

Do you ever feel like a plastic bag
Drifting through the wind
Wanting to start again

Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
Like a house of cards
One blow from caving in

Do you ever feel already buried deep
Six feet under scream
But no one seems to hear a thing

Do you know that there's still a chance for you
Cause there's a spark in you

You just gotta ignite the light
And let it shine
Just own the night
Like the Fourth of July

Cause baby you're a firework
Come on show 'em what you're worth
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby you're a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
You're gonna leave 'em fallin' down-own-own

You don't have to feel like a waste of space
You're original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow

Maybe you're reason why all the doors are closed
So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road
Like a lightning bolt, your heart will blow
And when it's time, you'll know

You just gotta ignite the light
And let it shine
Just own the night
Like the Fourth of July

Cause baby you're a firework
Come on show 'em what you're worth
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby you're a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
You're gonna leave 'em all in awe-awe-awe"

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
It's always been inside of you, you, you
And now it's time to let it through

Cause baby you're a firework
Come on show 'em what your worth
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby you're a firework
Come on slet your colors burst
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
You're gonna leave 'em all in awe-awe-awe

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
