Our Lady of Calvary Retreat Center Joy!

I just returned from another awesome weekend at Our Lady of Calvary Retreat Center. It is hard to believe I have been going to this awesome place for twenty two years, and have met so many amazing women. The retreat team are all wonderful and really do a great job at meeting ALL!!! our needs. Delicious healthy meals, casual conversations to spiritual direction and more.

 This past weekend I had to share with one of my group members Elizabeth what a angelic voice and mannerism she had. Every time she spoke I felt a and heard a gentle soul and  a sweet heart.

We made a point to share some time together in the early hours on Sunday morning, Elizabeth was anxious for the coffee to finish brewing while we shared some small talk, before long we were in my room and Elizabeth shared some of her poetry with me.This is one of the beautiful poems she read to me:

Lessons from a Tree

I see a gentle glow

a soft glimmer

on a tree touched by the light of the sunrise

and it is joyous and peaceful.

And when the wind blows

I see the tree flows with the breeze

no defense

no resistance

no struggle

no complaints nor questions of

‘why?’ ‘why now?’ ‘why me?’

it is still and grounded

what is given is enough.

~~Liz R~~

Underneath Elizabeth poem reads: You must not expect anything from others. It’s you, yourself, of whom you must ask a lot. Only from oneself has one the right to ask everything or anything. This way it’s up to you – your own choice. What you get from others remains a present, a gift! ~~Albert Schweitzer~~

So for today I thank Our Lady Of Calvary Retreat Center for another great weekend and I thank my new friend Elizabeth for the gift of sharing she gave me.

Our Lady of Calvary, 31 Colton St. Farmington, Ct 06032      Telephone:  860 677 8519

I hope soon you make a point  to spend some time at the Retreat Center, I promise you will leave with a happy heart and a renewed spirit.

The Real Woman Creed!

hugging bwomanI have been going through a summer  purging this month, so far I have given 5 extra large  plastic bags of clothing to our local community center, and major paper clean up. And  of course I absolutely must go through every piece of paper in the pile. I came across a 5X7 postcard that is beautiful, with affirmations written by Jan Phillips to support the strength, courage, and beauty in all of us.

The Real Woman Creed


I believe that within me lies an extraordinary radiance, and

I commit to letting my light loose in the world.

I believe that the source of my power and wisdom is in the center of my

being, and I commit to acting from this place of strength.

I believe that I possess an abundance of passion and creative

potential and I commit to the expression of these gifts.

I believe that the time has come to let go of old notions and unhealthy

attitudes, and I commit to re-examine what I have been told

about beauty and dismiss what insults my soul.

I believe that negative thoughts and words compromise my

well-being, and I commit to thinking and speaking

positively about myself and others.

I believe that young women are in need of positive role models, and

I commit to being an example of authenticity and self-love.

I believe in the relationship between my well-being and

the well-being of the planet, and I commit to a life of mindfulness

that regards all living things as holy and worthy of my love.

I believe it is my spiritual responsibility to care for my body

with respect, kindness and compassion, I commit to balancing

my life in such a way that my physical being is

fully expressed and nurtured.

I believe that joy is an essential part of wellness, and I commit to

removing obstacles to joy and creating a life that is full of exuberance.

I believe that a woman who loves herself is a powerful, passionate,

attractive force, and I commit, from this day forward, to loving myself

deeply and extravagantly.


So I hope my summer purging find  has reminded you how strong, courageous and beautiful you are. Here is to what we believe.

Saint Matthew’s Church Prayer Group

St Matthews Church, Tulsa OK I received a letter from St Matthew’s Church Prayer Group on a day I thought I was not going to be able to carry on. I was tired, weak, fear was choking me, and clearly the trauma, emotional abuse was taking a toll on my health. It was in 2008, and my life was just one enduring horrific episode after another. I did not have a support system. If I chose to share just a small piece of my story, I would hear “Oh!, you are a smart girl you will figure it out.” So the letter I am about to share with you, became my support system for years.

Dear Sister Morley,

   REMIND YOURSELF, “WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU IS NOT AS IMPORTANT AS YOUR REACTION TO WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU.” Self-respect, self-worth, self-dignity are birthrights. Nothing is more torturous than having indignity heaped upon you. Yet, no purpose is served when you allow people and wrongs they do to draw you to their level. When your self-worth, and dignity is undermined, a justly conceived resentment is generated… but no matter how just the resentment is… it is more self-destructive to you than to anyone and causes a blockage of divine, special energy flowing to you.

   KNOWING YOU DON’T DESERVE TREATMENT YOU ARE RECEIVING, REFUSE TO ALLOW IT TO AFFECT THE WAY YOU FEEL ABOUT YOURSELF. NO ONE KNOWS YOU BETTER THAN YOU, EXCEPT YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER. GOD IS CONCERNED ABOUT WHAT COMES OUT OF YOU MORE THAN WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU..FOR THIS IS THE GREATEST DETERMINING FACTOR IN YOUR FUTURE. Allow The Holy Spirit to lead you and guide you, ” YOU WILL BECOME WISE AS A SERPENT, AND HARMLESS AS A DOVE.”  JESUS SAID THIS IN [MATTHEW 10:16]. I’m not talking about becoming a floor mat, because a floor mat is what people walk on and wipe their feet. Respect others and respect yourself. You will find The Holy Spirit showing you how to handle people and situations, instead of having them handle you!. You will become the head and not the tail in every episode.

   Be mindful not to make promises lightly. An unfulfilled promise could influence you to avoid one that you really don’t wish to. Spend more time working on the ” creative person” within you. “A PERSON WHO WRONGED YOU NEEDS YOUR PRAYERS MORE THAN TO BE CENSURED.”

   Injustices and wrongs experienced in your life become part of God’s MASTER PLAN, The  Holy Spirit will over time use present and past events to reveal shortcuts to you concerning your future. Those who surround you influence what you will become, and accomplish. Choose relationships carefully.

   Your faith will be challenged. Someone wants to quarrel. REFUSE TO FEED A CONTENTIOUS SPIRIT. It will tire your spirit and break your focus. Re-direct any negative conversations to the positive aspects. You can change confusion to opportunity for a miracle! Focus on your future, which is changing fast.

   Realize that God sees the injustices of men and He will turn it around into His MASTER PLAN for your life…He will make it all work for your good, in His Divine way…leave the vengeance and punishment up to God, but accept that those who surround you influence what you become and all that you accomplish.

   You must keep in mind that although Satan is your enemy…Jesus warned us to be aware of men, also. Matthew 10:17, 18. “YOUR ENEMY IS ANYONE WHO ATTEMPTS TO HINDER OR SABOTAGE THE ASSIGNMENT AND PLANS GOD HAS REVEALED FOR YOUR LIFE.” [GALATIANS 5:7-9]. An enemy is anyone who weakens your passion for your future and your dreams. Trust in Jesus, the higher you fly in life, the less dead weight you can carry. Refuse to listen to the words of fear that try to cut you from within and from without through the doubters around you. STAY FOCUSED ON THE PRIZE AND NOT THE THREATS OF THE ENEMIES. The Lord is my helper and I will not FEAR what man shall do unto me.

   Here is what God is saying to you today:

“For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the Lord…” Jeremiah 30:17

Your Brothers & Sisters in Christ

Saint Matthew’s

My prayer for you is that this letter will give you the lift, and renewed faith to help you get through the next minute, the next  hour, or the next day.

Hugs Casey

Don’t Be Afraid To Fail

Mountain picI received this in a email from my friend Kim quit awhile ago, and thought I would share it with you. It was  a message published in the Wall Street Journal by United Technologies Corporation, Hartford, Connecticut. Never did I dream it would take me over two years to get to it. I hope this message will remind you to keep trying. Just knowing that day will come, and we can all celebrate together.

                                                      Don’t Be Afraid To Fail             

You’ve failed many times, although you may not remember.

You fell down the first time you tried to walk.    

You almost drowned the first time you tried to swim, didn’t you?

Did you hit the ball the first time you swung a bat?

Heavy hitters, the ones who hit the most home runs, also strike out a lot.

R.H. Macy failed seven times before his store in New York caught on.

English novelist John Creasey got 753 rejection slips before he published 564 books.

Babe Ruth struck out 1,330 times, but he also hit 714 home runs.

Don’t worry about failure.

Worry about the chances you miss when you don’t even try.

To your greatness.

Hugs Casey

Abuse Can Happen to Anyone

Lead singer of the popular band Chvrches, Lauren Mayberry, wants you to know that domestic violence and abuse can happen to anyone. Lauren shared her personal experience with abuse publicly, with an important message to spotlight: Just because someone doesn’t hit you, doesn’t mean that they aren’t hurting you.

We’re so thankful for Lauren’s courage in speaking out and shedding light on emotional abuse, the hidden signs and the deeply damaging emotional scars that it leaves. Indeed, domestic violence includes psychological violence and emotional abuse, which are too often overlooked, excused and minimized. Please go here to read Lauren’s story

My Afternoon With Dr. Bernie Siegel

Bernie SiegelWhat a great afternoon I shared with Dr. Bernie Siegel, at the Town and Country Club in Hartford, Connecticut. This amazing event was sponsored by the Happiness Club of Hartford. 

Dr. Siegel’s new book Love, Animals & Miracles was front and center on the sales table. But I assure you, all eyes were on this gracious, sweet, loving, wonderful man – one of the top 20 most spiritual people alive on the planet.

He shared many of his favorite treasures/messages and spoke about how important it is to love everyone and everything.

He tells us to stay in the present moment and do all you can to have a great day. I would love to share some other notes that I scribbled down …

  •  “Difficulties redirect us.”
  •  “Quiet your mind and you will see the truth.”
  •  “Quiet your mind, and send a message.”
  •  “Do what is going to make you happy.”
  •  “Find what makes you lose track of time, and you will live longer.”
  •  “You want to help people – listen to them.”
  •  “Relationships keep you alive.”
  •  “When you find pennies, you’re on the right path.”

In the picture (above), I had just finished thanking Bernie (that is what he prefers to be called) for his testimonial for my book. Here’s what he had to say:

“Your words of wisdom are so true. As a survivor you have so much to teach others and in a sense re-parent them. When you have not been blessed by wise parents, teachers and other authority figures adversity can be what enlightens you. We can all be helped by your wisdom and not have to experience the adversity to become enlightened.” ~Bernie Siegel, MD author of 365 Prescriptions for the Soul and 101 Exercises for the Soul. “We are all wounded and working at becoming complete.”  

Learn more about Dr. Bernie.Siegle at I hope you enjoyed his words of wisdom. Here’s to loving you.

We Carry It Longer Than You Can Imagine

I recently wrote a blog post about how our precious little children carry way too much emotional baggage into their every day lives – I am talking about exposure to violence and the effect it has on them. Most people have no idea that we have a national crisis that affects approximately two out of every three of our children.

Powerful Low Key Shot of a Sad Young Blonde Child

There are 76 million children living in the US. Approximately 15 million children witness, and over 46 million endure some form of abuse of and psychological trauma. Over 35 years ago, the U.S. Surgeon General, Julius B. Richmond declared violence a public health crisis of the highest priority. Yet today in 2016 this crisis still remains.

When I speak at events, I am often bringing  awareness of the difficulties children endure through such traumatic experiences. Violence has the potential to profoundly derail their safety, security, health, happiness and the ability to just be children. The ability to be able to just be kids and jump, play, learn, and grow in a safe environment.

Exposure to violence in any form harms children. Different forms of violence have different negative impacts. Our children our suffering with posttraumatic stress disorder [PTSD] , eating and sleeping issues, depression, anxiety, hyperactivity, and increased aggression to name a few. Many internalize incredible fear, decreased responsiveness to adults, developmental delays, some may have short and long term physical, and emotional problems. And the list continues.

Our children are being neglected, robbed of their innocence, robbed of their childhoods and their birth rights. They struggle with powerlessness and abandonment issues. They become experts at not seeing, not feeling. They become numb. It is hard for them to trust, burdened with shame and guilt. They often lose their voice, shrink from success. Day by day the peace, love and joy are squeezed out of their little bodies and these issues continue well into their adult lives.

The doubts and insecurities are different in the minds and bodies where abuse has lived. So just for today lets remember it is easier to build up a child than it is to repair an adult.
