The Life I Want

My Wish.jpg

As I look at this I see what I would like my life to look like, a snapshot of what I would like it to look like.  It is also my wish for others.  As I make this journey to create a new life, one that pushes past the fibromyalgia, there are days when the meds calm everything down the pain, all the stuff that comes with it, the lack of sleep etc.., and I can see this all happening very easily, and then there are days when it’s a lot harder.  Today I went to my neurologist for a follow up on my hand which was in pain a few weeks ago and she didn’t like the way I was moving my neck so she did a check and I ended up having to get my homeopathic with a touch of cortisone, again, though I had shots six weeks ago.  Does it make for a tired me at times and the ideal life seem a bit distant? Yes, but not impossible, not with grit, with faith, with determination.  That means I have to ask questions about whether the choices I am making are healthy in the long term, and I have to not be impulsive, spontaneous if stirred in the Spirit by the Spirit, yes, but that’s different than impulsive.  I hope to build this life, this snapshot for the long term using meditation that helps me ask and answer crucial questions, enhance my gifts.  Life can be an amazing journey, in spite of the bumps in the road. 

Amen 

What Are This Gal’s Goal, Plan?

I think it’s important to have a core goal, an idea of what you want to do and achieve with your gifts, so I thought about this even for myself and I would love to share that with you. 

Artistically and as a Motivational Caoch:

Impact wise:

In terms of the impact, I would like my work to inspire, and empower, to help others to grow in their spiritual life (not religion, spirituality, spiritual path be it Christian, Zen, Judaism your choice and journey to make, not mine), and be impacted overall and inspired to rise and fly like the eagle, never be defined by your circumstances or the victimology etc.. others try to place on you, you may even feel as you navigate through  life..

Professionally:

I hope to grow in my gifts, skills, to earn my daily bread, become self sufficient to the max, soar like the eagle in this photo, while inspiring etc…, to do so via my blog, online seminars and then live ones.   Working in collaboration with other artists, coaches and such will be something I look forward to.  I will be happy to work with groups as regards local businesses in NYC, my live seminars I will hold in Manhattan for the most part.  I hope to leave all reliance on any government program behind, be totally self sufficient to live an friendly, homeopathic oriented life, by earning my daily bread with the gifts and skills that the Creator was kind enough to bestow on me.. 

How will I develop those skills? study for one and practice, practice, practice! In life we never really should stop learning, studying on some level, never.

I will of course always hold a view that is capitalist, firmly constitutional, federalist republicanism, and the Christian faith, holistically will always be an important part of my heritage, so that Christ Consciousness, teaching of boundaries, getting closer to hitting the mark rather than missing it is an important part of that holistic approach and view in what I do.  This is my goal.

If you wish to find out more about online seminars, please stay tuned as I will be posting an events and news post every two weeks with links to tickets etc.., so keep checking in!

May the sun always shine upon you, always!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Amazing Grace – My Rendition

soaring eagle

It’s officially Memorial Day and to those who give of themselves, their life etc.. for liberty thank you.  This song I think is one of my favorites, and so with an improv tune and a thank you, as well as remembering my dad who served and was wounded, I give you Amazing Grace.  I will leave my sharing of my poem about faith and freedom for Independence Day, the one I wrote.

 

What’s Cooking?

What is the latest news, well a few things going on.  Where do I begin? Hmmm.

Arts:

  • I continue to work on new stuff, so please check out https://katherineappello.bandcamp regularly to see what is new.
  • I am looking to organize my first Meet and Greet in July, late July, with some poetry and improv singing
  • For the holidays, hope to do a holiday show

Coaching:

  • I have set up a seminar -https://www.eventbrite.com/e/connect-to-the-intuitive-self-tickets-46473937799
  • It is the first in a series of seminars.  This seminar and meditation is an hour, and for those who wish to wish to stick around after to ask questions or chat I will make myself available for another half hour.
  • Around the holidays my hope is do do a live in person seminar, rather than just online, maybe early December

That’s the latest and I hope everyone has a safe and blessed Memorial Day Weekend.

 

 

 

A Lover’s Farewell

Northern Lights II

I came across a website that had public domain songs, poems and one particular piece the first stanza caught my eye and thoughts and reflections started coming at me, so I decided to record them and share them with you.  

Happy Memorial Day and to All those in our Military, Law Enforcement, and to those no longer with us, like my dad who served in the military, was injured, God Bless.

Why Feedback Matters.

Number One Music allows me to send outa newsletter every 10 days and I recently sent one out and here are a few of the messages I have received.

Carolina:   “I never get bored this tune Even In The Greatest Storm. I love this tune so much and Thanks for producing this track.”

Pasquale  “hi I just have to say that you create a very good music and it appeals to a lot of people. I’ll be listening to you, I’ve just added your n1m page to my faves.”

Efrain: “hello you’re far too talented not to share what you can do with a vast audience and make a living from it –

I believe that ability shines through and that you’ve got plenty…”

Lesley “now THAT’s music ive been listening to this all day, seems like you can never get tired of it!”

One or two of the music blogs I submitted to the feedback was that the vocals, the accent threw them off though they liked the lyrics, but the melody was a bit too laid back for them.  On that track I didn’t do the vocals.  The feedback on any project we do, from a few different sources, provided we don’t take it personally as an attack on us, but rather feedback on the material can be very useful.  These comments and others tell me I am on the right track and if I look at which songs got the comments, what genre, style people are drawn to that I put out there, then I know what to focus on, so it helps me.  It also gives me encouragement to keep going, and hopefully the day comes that I can earn my daily bread with the music and coaching.  Feedback helps us to know where we are, what maybe we need to work on, focus on etc… and where to go from here.  In the creative business, or sales, it is not personal, though it feels like it at times, when what we put out there is not readily accepted by all, but not everything can be liked by everyone, or appreciated by everyone.  We need to keep that in mind and not take it personally.  Feedback is important in life.

Amen

 

Problem With the Met Gala

met gala 2018

This is not even counting the bondage rosary mask.  Scripture tells us that in the latter days truth will be twisted and mocked and what is evil, unhealthy etc… will be lauded as good.  All you have to do is look around you and know that is true.  This shows that.  Even worse is that the Church gave their blessing, the Vatican sending the Choir to sing at the Gala had to know, and so did NY’s Cardinal Dolan, he even took photos with the Gala organizers I believe.  These people wearing these garbs belong to an industry that mocks the Christian faith, not any other faith group, no it gets all upset if you use the word Islamic Terrorists or Jihadists, but mocked Pence for his expression of faith, mocks Conservatives and Christians constantly on and off stage, simply for believe and adhering to, especially those who fully do, to God’s Scriptural Truth, Biblical Truth.  Does the media dare do so with any other faith group?  No they don’t.  Mainly because Catholics, Christians in trying to love thy neighbor etc…don’t really war against those who mock us, we don’t do jihad.  The sad part is that the Church sold out, it sold out to the things of the world, the very thing that Jesus said we were not to do, we were not to be of this world, neither was the church to be.  Yet the Vatican, Dolan sold out, sold out to the world in the name of whatever.  If the Church sells out, well what example of scriptural faithfulness can they provide?  Same with the debacle of the Boy Scouts undermining the role of male and female, their beautiful differences, the differences in how they learn.  This sacrilege of this Gala really brought home how degenerated Hollywood, and society is, and how sad the Church has become, how it has through so called Social Justice and in different ways sold out, and sold its’ soul.  That really is a terrible day and thing for humanity, and it is going to be up to the patriots and true faithful of scripture to get the church and things back on track and regain the soul of the Church and nations. 

Shalom and Amen

It’s Up, Woo Hooo!!

The site is up and I hope to have the first full length meditation up for you this week.  I hope you listen to the songs on soundcloud  ( https://soundcloud.com/kathy-appello) and then consider purchasing them on bandcamp.  A percentage of all proceeds will go to organizations such as Water, UJF, Americares, Gary Senise Foundation.  The same goes with donations to this blog.  I hope you will donate or purchase on bandcamp.  God Bless.

Happy Thursday.  I wanted to update everyone on what is going on with me and what I am working on.  

In regards to the seminars, I really hope that for future, you will register for any online seminars I offer.  I really would like to have a minimum of 15 people.  I will schedule it for May or June, the next one and provide the link once I have at least 15 people registered.  As for the music, I decided to put all the songs in one place, sell all my works in one place, so all my songs and meditations, spoken word material will be sold on my bandcamp site https://katherineappello.bandcamp.com/, which will be fully set up by Monday, that’s the plan.  I am dealing with some fribomyalgia stuff, my right foot is bandaged, have to say off it for a few days, try to as much as I can.  That is frustrating and this diet where I have  print out of three pages both sides, of what I can and can’t eat, is annoying, as I have to take the list with me every time I go shopping.  I have to make sure any product I by is GMO, Gluten Free, Soy and Wheat Free, also Lactose Free.  It’s been a frustrating, but also good week, as I decided to streamline things.  I refuse to let it knock me down, rather keep me down.  That’s the latest and I hope to have new songs up for sale and the bandcamp  site fully up by Monday.

Amen
