My Legacy in Life
By Cynthia Bergsbaken Photography.
As we get older, we start thinking of, “If I was to die tomorrow, how will people remember me?”
What do we have to show that we were living here on Earth? Good question.
Then we start to think of our lives, thinking of the past and looking at everything we have done.
Did I do exactly what I had wanted to do in this life? Will I be known for what I created? Or will people and family not even know the real me and what I had done in life.
At this point, I had decided to write a book on my life. It would include only the positive, happy parts of my life, showing the kids all my experiences I went through. I placed this on my goal list to work on every week.
But then after a month of thinking of this, writing some of it down, I realized maybe this isn’t what I had wanted to do. I found myself procrastinating writing it.
Just this morning, I was still thinking of “what my legacy would be”. I had my inner voice come to me and suggest it would be “kindness”. This was really a nice idea, but I really wanted something more personalized to me.
Then I heard my inner voice suggest my Reiki business. Now this was a nice thought. This was also very personalized to me, because I’m the one who created this business- all aspects of it. I’m the one who runs it, helping people become empowered in life again.
Then I was thinking, after I die, my business will probably be shut down due to no one in my family being a Reiki practitioner.
My inner voice spoke up to me suggesting to me not to worry. I already have my legacy, it is my children.
I co-created with my husband and God to create two beautiful, intelligent, kind children who have their hearts full of love. They have memories and experiences that we have shared in life that will be remembered with much love.
As I thought of all this, I thought up a story that really shares this idea.
In life, we find experiences that fill our hearts with joy and love.
Gardening is a joy in my life, as long as I don’t have to weed gardens full of Thistle weed every week.
Life is like watching a Sunflower grow.
We plant the seed and we give it water and nurturing. The plant grows strong and fast.
The problem is, some of the seeds will not survive.
Some seeds are planted in too shallow of dirt. The roots are not able to penetrate the soil well enough to continue growing in times of drought. These plants will die early in life.
Then there are the seeds that are planted in good soil, but are not able to grow fast enough . These plants are overtaken with weeds. The weeds are aggressive, choking out the sunflower plants still young in growth. These plants also die early in life.
But then there are a few seeds that are planted in good soil and are able to grow without the weeds choking them out. These plants will grow to their maturity, showing their own glory and light to the earth.
These plants stand strong with beauty and grace, emanating their light from their single being. These are the seeds that are here on Earth to bring the rest of us in to God’s love and light.
They show us the way to our own highest light paths. They act as guiding stars to us, while we travel in the middle of a dark night.
Then, like all others, these sunflowers will also die. But they die with no fear. For they have produced, in all of their glory, seeds, positive seeds that have been left behind to start the process of life all over again.
For this is the sunflower’s legacy in life.

Receiving Reiki healing is a great experience. But like any other form of service you receive, it is wise to feel comfortable and confident about and around your practitioner.
Here are a few tips about choosing the right Reiki practitioner for you.
*Meeting with a new Reiki practitioner before committing to taking their service is a must. Asking questions not only about the Reiki service they provide, but a little about the person. Each Reiki practitioner has a different personality and different beliefs, just like anyone else in the world. I would suggest you meet up with the new practitioner days ahead of any thought of receiving a Reiki session. This way, you can get to know the person and understand: what Reiki techniques they use, if they are combining other energy type work with their Reiki, what is the type of Reiki they are using, understand the difference between Reiki types, Get to know the person.
I have read articles from people that have received their f…
What is Ho'Oponopono and why should it interest me?
This technique is an ancient Hawaiian technique for clearing out your Subconscious mind. The Subconscious mind is also known as our "Inner child". Our Subconscious minds contain all the information and memories of our existence. Our Subconscious minds are like computers collecting all the data that comes to us as energy. Energy that is equivalent to emotions, thoughts, ideas, thinking, etc. This technique was brought to the public by Ihaleakala Hew Len, PhD.
Dr. Hew Len is a psychologist who was working with mentally ill criminals in Hawaii using this technique to cure them. This technique uses "love" to heal. It sounds like a fairy tale, but it is proven through Dr. Hew Len's accomplishments of healing all the criminals in Hawaii's hospital. He did this without even seeing the patient!
This is just a quick back ground of this technique. My intention is to actually give you the technique to star…
When looking at our present life's experiences, we truly do not have all the facts. Our vision is clouded.
I have been recently looking at some of my childhood beliefs and fears. I was able to feel how I felt at certain moments as a child. I have seen how childhood beliefs and fears are able to affect us in our present lives.
I was a 4-year old child that spent my days playing and being with my Mom. My brother was in school, while my Dad was at work all day. For a few days, I was left without my Mom's attention due to her stay in the hospital. One day, my Dad, my brother and I, with excitement, drove to the hospital to pick up my Mom and our new baby sister. As we drove home, I got the idea I could take care of my sister the way I did for my dolls. I asked my Mom if I could help take care of her. My Mom told me I was too young. That day was the start of my beliefs of rejection, being left-out, unworthiness, unloved, and jealousy. My Mom spent her day giving much lo…
