particles23Something amazing happened last week in Britain that affected the whole world. When a middle aged woman, somewhat less than stylish, walked out on stage of the tv reality show Britain’s Got Talent people expected the worst. But when she opened her mouth to sing the touching number from the Broadway show Les Miserables everyone was stunned at what they heard.

This was someone with more than a beautiful voice. More than someone who was comfortable in her own skin. This was someone who could reach into your center, grab your heart and touch the most basic part of your soul. She didn’t let go untill the end and even then people felt the impact long afterwards. Their heart and soul was open as it seldom, if ever, had been open before. There was weeping, smiling, giggling and amazement. A week later people are still talking.

Susan Boyle is a 47 year old woman who devoted her adult life to caring for her mother. She was ridiculed as a youngster for her learning disability. When asked why she selected this particular song she replied that it summed up how she was feeling about her life. She dreamt of becoming a professional singer but life had killed her dream.

Well Susan you were wrong. Your dream is still very alive and we are all part of it. May you continue to touch the souls and open the hearts of your audience. We need you to help us realize this part of us that we no longer recognize. The world is a song and the song is exciting.

I Dreamed A Dream (excerpt)
There was a time when men were kind,
And their voices were soft,
And their words inviting.
There was a time when love was blind,
And the world was a song,
And the song was exciting.
There was a time when it all went wrong…
I had a dream my life would be
So different from this hell I’m living,
So different now from what it seemed…
Now life has killed the dream I dreamed…

abundance-of-the-universe3Today we had the first real snow of the season. I decided to give myself a bonus day and stay home from work. It had promised to be a big storm but in the end was just moderate. The snow put me in the mood to finish my Christmas cards, since they usually don’t get done til after the new year, this was something big for me. Sometimes they don’t get done at all.

It had been quite a while since last contact with family so I decided to do the dreaded Christmas letter.  At first I thought there was little to report, I spend too much time working and too little time playing. But as I wrote I found my life had been more interesting than thought. Soul Collage has been a very important bright spot to me this year. There is not a lot of time to devote to cutting and pasting but each moment has been precious.

This card is called Abundance of the Universe and it tells me…

I am the one who holds the abundance of the universe in her hands.I am the one who creates from the stuff of stars.I am the one who knows the universe will manifest my desires, be they negative or positive. It is easy. What I dream of can be mine. Be careful what you wish for.

In these difficult economic times it is important to remember that the Universe is indeed abundant. When we concentrate on worrying about what we don’t have, or might  not have in the future we are denying the gifts that are offered to us from The Infinite.

suspendedWelcome to Suspended Soul. This is my first blog and my first post. As I sit here typing, I am watching  “A Charlie Brown Christmas”.  This is my favorite season of the year and one of my favorite Christmas programs. It reminds everyone to think of the important things in life.

Creating a balance in daily living is my goal. Suspended is another way to say balanced. The picture you see here is one of my Soul Collage cards. It says to me that I am the one balanced between heaven and earth. I am balanced between night and day. I am the one who dances on the edge of infinity.

 Suspended Soul is a collection of thoughts on many subjects including Feng Shui, Soul Collage, real estate, music and whatever strikes my fancy. I hope you enjoy visiting.
