Sleep Off*

Morning Meds ; 6 8 19

One our grandsons spent the night, a very lively kindergarten graduate.

Sadly he still enjoys sleeping with Cheryl and I.

I had all the fun that I could take and by 2 am I was headed for the couch.

I woke up late, nearly lame and was wondering how I had broken my neck in such a short amount of time.

Grandma and Rennick were still asleep.

I had time to regain some mobility, meditate and get into a better of frame mind by the time I heard him stir.

Very shortly after, he came busting into where I was still meditating.

I told him I wasn’t done and if he wanted he could watch tv.

It didn’t work, he climbed into a chair behind me and said he’ld be quiet.

I said “Ok, but let me finish.”

I finished without a peep out of him.

We spent the next hour talking about rocks, feathers, I Ching Tetragrams, the difference between meditating and praying, crystals, candles, incense and sage.

I showed him my favorite rocks and why I liked them and where I found them.

I have one I found that looks like a claw, that’s why I picked it up, but if you set it on the floor and the light of the candle passes over it, it looks like the face on the mountain on Mars.

I was really excited when I first noticed it. A perfect face pattern created by the shadows.

He did inform me that some of my rocks and feathers where in the wrong place and corrected it for me and he really wanted to blow out the candle.

It ended up being a very delightful mornings.

It made me think of how indigenous children would have learned in days past.

He was talking with Grandma about it while we were eating breakfast.

He said he was in papa’s peaceful room.

I felt honored that it made him feel that way.

They say that watching children will bring the youth out of you.

I spent Friday with Rennick, age six and Reagan his sister, a busy twenty month old.

They are right, there wasn’t a bit of youth left in me by the time they went home, but I sure had been shown a lot of love.

* Reagan always calls a sleep over a sleep off. She is now a very busy four year old.

My wife Cheryl and I live in St. Joseph, Missouri. She is retired and watches three of our 12 grandchildren and 1 greatgrandchild. I work as a maintenance man at Highland Community College in Highland, Kansas. I have a BA in Art with an emphasis in ceramics. I am a second degree Reiki practitioner and BQH (Beyond Quantum Healing) practitioner. I started writing spiritual related posts in 2018 and started sharing them on a few different Facebook sites. This site is to consolidate and re-share them. It is also to share short stories based on images seen while in meditation. My hopes are that it will inspire others to use the powerful tool of visualisation to enhance their spiritual journey. Thank you.
