The Bliss Mistress Guide: Drinking It All In

by Edie Weinstein


Sitting at my favorite local coffee shop called The Zen Den, in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. I think of it as my office away from home and like the setting of the television show Cheers, a place where “everybody knows your name.” Today, I am enjoying time engaged in what child development experts would refer to as parallel play. My friend Lisa is sitting opposite me with her lap tap Apple open and she is typing away as well. Since both of us are solopreneurs who work in the home, we decided to get together to be in the presence of others as we let the creative juices flow. I am not an introvert by nature, nor am I reclusive; but rather a social butterfly, and yet there are times when writing is a solitary act.

Listening to acoustic singer-songwriter music and the low tones of conversation, as well as the pleasant hiss of the cappuccino machine. That instrument, along with the talent of Michael, who is one of the baristas, created a decaf chai latte with almond milk and a frothy cinnamon sprinkled heart with the initials PMA (for Positive Mental Attitude) scripted on the surface. It looks as sweet as it tastes. The foam has dissipated, but the attytood of grattytood remains. 

Watching a teenaged girl hug-dancing her mother. In an unusual late fall, feels like late summer day, mom is wearing a red vest and daughter is garbed in a long sleeve t-shirt and baseball cap.  She is telling her mother that she doesn’t want to fill up too much since, she explains, “I want to save room for sushi.”

I feel a sense of excitement about all kinds of opportunities that await me in every aspect of my life. I will be ending 2015 surrounded by abundant love in Spirit and form, family, friends and creative dreams come true. Feeling vital and energized. Taking better care of myself than ever before. Have released the identity as ‘cardiac patient,’ following a heart attack in 2013. Have been engaging in exercise both in and out of the gym as a way of maintaining wellness, rather than for the purpose of preventing another cardiac event.

Early next year, I will be flying to Nassau to attend a retreat at Sivananda Yoga Ashram that is led by the wondrous Joan Borysenko. Called Writing Down the Light, the focus is on re-writing your life script. As a wordsmith, I am constantly editing my life story. When the opportunity arose to attend, a huge YES coursed through me. It all flowed into place as I registered and was able to use frequent flyer miles to jet me to a place I have never visited. Who knows what phenomenal friends and fantastically freeing experiences await? Open to discovery. Ready to leap into the next year.

I welcome in 2016 with the same gifts, as well as the certainty that all is arriving in my life by Divine invitation. Drinking it all in…..slurp~!
