The realizations keep coming

Two weeks After the Hay House conference, the realizations continue.

Since the I Can Do It weekend, I have added a regular meditation practice to my daily prayers( I have been tapping more consistently ( and have begun doing energy medicine on a daily basis ( As a result, my morning routine has become longer and more important in my daily life. In addition, I have started having twice-weekly visits from a nurse, who relieves my husband from the task of my daily showers, gets me dressed and helps me do daily exercises. I use the standing frame every day for one hour. This, in addition to my daily Qi Gong practice has really changed my perspective and has changed my daily life.

So — How is it going? I guess my best answer came directly from my environment. After having a difficult night’s sleep, and no time to do my morning prayers, or any morning absolutions, my nurse D arrived to help me get showered and dressed. We completed my exercises, and as we ended, she asked if everything was ok with me. She commented that she did not feel any energy or excitement coming from me – that my aura seemed low-energy and much heavier than usual. I realized right then that my efforts at lightening my spirit and connecting with my higher self had absolutely had an effect that others could see/feel, not to mention how I felt on my own. A significant message from the universe that happily, I did not miss.

When I started this blog, the name “Diva on a Detour” came to me one day, and it really resonated. It definitely caught the spirit of what I was feeling at the time – this diagnosis of MS had gotten in my way, and I needed to get around it — get back to normal asap. But according to, the word “detour” is defined as ” a roundabout or circuitous way or course, especially one used temporarily when the main route is closed.” My latest realization is that this is not a detour, but this experience is my journey. The route is a circuitous one — much different than I ever expected — heading towards a new normal, but this is my route. I may even need to change the name of this blog to reflect this realization — more on THAT later….

As I end this blog entry, suffice it to say that my life continues to change, and that the realizations continue. I advance with excitement and a strong determination to grow and build on this strong foundation to create a big, meaningful life, every day. I encountered this quote from writer M. Scott Peck today (the universe continues to support my efforts!), which really reflects the attitude that I have moving forward:

“Life is difficult. This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths. It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it. Once we truly know that life is difficult-once we truly understand and accept it-then life is no longer difficult. Because once it is accepted, the fact that life is difficult no longer matters.”

– M. Scott Peck



  1. It is a joy to see your personal growth. Thanks for the M. Scott Peck quote. If I recall correctly, it is the beginning of his book The Road Less Traveled, which you have just prompted me to reread. Thanks
