Spiritually Significant

             One of the difficult parts of being in this life, and wearing these bodies, is the limitations of our physical brains.  Especially when it come to our own personal journey.

             We think we know what’s best, but sometimes it’s just not.  Sometimes we’ve wandered off the path, and we need to regroup.  We have become lost, or we are simply AT a loss.

             In order to get our bearings again, to reacquaint ourselves with the blueprint/map, we often need to just let go.  Which we all know is supremely hard.

The Highest Good

             Acknowledging that we ARE okay, and that all WILL be well, WILL work out, is also a challenge.  But again, letting go is the simplest solution.  No matter what our mind may insinuate, really, thinking is not the answer.

             There are even occasions where we can now look back and see how this DID benefit us in the end.  How we thought a situation was going one way, was heading in a certain direction, but then.  It SO fucking wasn’t.

             The solution came from a place we’d never even imagined was possible.  Or, never even imagined at all because we were unaware of its very existence.  Our brain was of no help.  And yet, in the end, it all got worked out.

             Still within our regular rotation around the card altar today, we have the most ideal draw for this message.  The illustration can’t help but bring a smile to our heart.

the high god of gratitude and service, oracle cards, messages of helping

“The High Lord of Gratitude and Service  ~  2  ~

selflessness, humility, conscious action

The High Lord of Gratitude and Service has arrived to help you find true purpose today.  Feeling gratitude for each moment you experience, and loving what is and what has been, will remind you that every breath you take holds a deep and profound awareness.

Through small actions and selfless service to another, you are automatically placed upon your highest path, whether you’re immediately aware of it or not.  The presence of this Ally lets you know that you are on the correct path to fulfilling your desires.

You’re also notified that your actions of service and attitude of gratitude will yield riches beyond your wildest dreams, as long as those riches aren’t the goal you have in mind.

Giving service with no thought of return is what’s required of you today.  This would also be a good time to write a list reminding yourself of all the things in your life and the world around you that you have to be grateful for.

If your question refers to a relationship, let gratitude be  your guide.  Be thankful for all you learn from this person.  Truly, there are no friends and no enemies, just teachers along life’s journey.

Be grateful for the laughter and even for the tears.  The attitude of gratitude is a magnet for true love in all forms.”

Wisdom Of The Hidden Realm Oracle Cards by Colette Baron-Reid

Today’s Sharing:

is to inform everyone that my lost bank card was found.  In the pocket of a rarely-worn (now that it’s been so warm) garment which was thrown over the arm of a chair and totally overlooked.

             My new one arrived mere days after the in-person request (and I had been issued a temporary), so there wasn’t any lost-time, and we knew it was in the house some place.  But now, I’m trying to figure out what the lesson was here.  Surely it can’t have been to hang my shit up in the closet?!

World Touring, Or Not

             When we set off on our journey to more mindful living, we become better able to observe and appreciate all of the differences that we see in the individuals around us.  We notice how we’re all so unique and fascinating.

             All of us, traveling our paths, walking in shoes of our own choosing (or making).  Going to the places which call to us.

             These are the images that I was shown this morning.  These various and assorted adventures and expeditions.

Far and Wide

Near and Close

             It matters not one bit if we are a global wanderer or a neighborhood trekker.  It matters not one bit if we have a passport or if we simply tour our own backyard.

             What aids in our healing and helps us to learn our lessons, is that we do what feels right.  We go wherever we are called.  See what is pleasing to our souls.  Follow our hearts to the location which soothes it the most.

             The dichotomy of someone who has set foot in multiple countries on assorted continents, with that of a person who has never been more than ten miles from where they were born, is what makes us the diverse, special, and beautiful beings that we are.

             We inhabit the landscape which nurtures our spirit.  We live (and visit) where it feels like home.  As it should be.

             Returning to our regular rotation around the card altar, today’s messenger is exactly the one we’d like to have on our side.

oracle cards, animal messages, badger

“Badger  ~

‘Abandon compromise and fight valiantly for what  you believe in.’

Bold Badger, her distinctive stripes a badge of courage, fears none.  Throw trepidation and fear aside.

Like Badger, abandon compromise and the dissembling that leads to defeat.  Take a firm unwavering stand and speak your mind, regardless of others’ opinions.  Fight valiantly, openly, and aggressively for what you believe in or risk losing it forever.

Remember, however, that play is important too.  As a cub it honed Badger’s awesome skills, as an adult it assures her continued prowess, as it will yours.”

Today’s Family Update:

is to announce that our newest baby did arrive last night.  His name is Skyler Luke and he’s delightful.  Our Mad Hat did an amazing job, all without a drop of medication or pain relief.  Talk about a rock star!

In Full Support Of

             Allow me to explain a bit of this channeling process, a routine that has developed over the past year.  (Stay with me, the reason will be clear soon.)

             I wake up and (mostly) understand what I’ve been shown or what feeling, emotion, is being transmitted.  I go upstairs to jot the message down as my notes.  I stand in front of the card altar and wait to hear which deck we are to draw from that day (whether we’ll be within the regular rotation, or outside of it, and if outside of it, which stack).

             Then I go about whatever needs to be done in my life that day.  At around 9 or so each evening, I sit down at my desk and type in the post.  (Keep this timeline in mind as you read along.)

             Today’s message is about being there for our loved ones.  And about how they are there for us.

Gather Together

             The sole image that I was shown, alone and perfectly crystal clear, was of hands.  First just two or three pairs, then, more began to appear.  All palms up, overlapping, all in a circle, all offering support and healing.

             All brought together as an outpouring of love and companionship.  Unconditional support.

             As we turn now to our daily draw, the message becomes complete.

oracle cards, togetherness messages

“Come Together  ~  4  ~

‘Love needs to be shared.’

Love needs to be expressed.  Drawing the Come Together card is a sign that you are on the path to discover the nature of this emotion in all its forms of expression – romantic, familial, unconditional, spiritual.

In each instance, there is another being involved.  Love involves a give-and-take between you and a significant other, a relative, a friend, an animal, and/or Spirit.

This card assures you that love has come calling and seeks a partner in its dance!  Know that you are cherished.  Like a magnet, you’re attracting love into your life.

This is the time for harmonious, caring partnerships.”

The Enchanted Map Oracle Cards by Colette Baron-Reid

Today’s Sharing: 

is to let everyone know that my (late) sister’s daughter will be having a baby.  Any day now.  Her pre-labor activity have begun.  So, by tomorrow at this time, our family could have increased by one small boy.  Good luck, Madalynn, you can do this!

              (If you look back over the past few months, she’s been replying in some of the comment sections.  As “Mad Hat” because that’s what we called her when the kids were all actual kids.)

Intuitive Conduct

             The over-riding attitude for what I was shown this morning can best be described as looking like an old-fashioned wooden wagon wheel.  Spokes aimed in, to the central point.  This is all about combining, to create a whole.

             Remember the image and definition of carrying our own sticks (which I can’t find right now, but you know what I mean)?  Well, add that to the recent suggestion about responsibility.  Blending all of our ingredients, like a tasty recipe, we have today.

In the driver’s seat.

             Now, that doesn’t mean we aren’t including mass transit, because that’s also included (and supremely valued).  It’s more about the control, and knowing which bus, train, or plane to catch, still counts.

             The views which were shared with me earlier were of all manner of conveyance.  Every form of vehicle, animal, and appliance ever acquired, used, or invented to get people from one place to another was an image that I got to see.

             The theme stayed the same, no matter the scene: we are the conductor, driver, pilot of our own destiny.  We take the reins, steering wheel, throttle to move this adventure along.  Even if it’s just our own two feet ambulating us, it’s still us.  It’s still our individual selves who are responsible for getting ahead and moving forward on our path.

             Another message that I received was about paying attention.  And then, when I was directed to draw from outside of our regular rotation again, I saw why.

angel messages, raguel, clairsentience,

“Clairsentience  ~  

Archangel Raguel:

‘Notice your recurring physical and emotional feelings, as they signify Divine guidance.’

Additional Meanings:

‘Please honor your feelings.   Don’t be afraid of deep emotions or intense feelings.  I can help you distinguish between your own feelings and those of others.

I’ll also help you clear away any energies you may absorb.  I’ll guide you toward people, situations, and places with clear and loving energy.

Your repetitive emotions and physical feelings provide information, so please notice and follow these feelings.  They are answers to your prayers.

Ask me to help translate confusing messages so that you will clearly know which steps to take.’

Working with Archangel Raguel:

Like an air-traffic controller, Raguel oversees archangels and angels, ensuring harmony, cooperation, and order among them all.  In the same way, he’ll help you sort all your feelings, enabling you to notice, understand, and follow them.”

             Not only is it against all sense to ignore our intuition and the messages we’re being given by the Universe, it’s also unhealthy.  Especially in light of all those “accountability” reminders we’ve been hearing lately.

Today’s Affirmation:

(is from Louise Hay)

Gratitude brings more to be grateful about.  

Today I am grateful.

Answering To It

             Since we know that there are no mistakes, merely lessons (and as Spider showed us recently, strands, some more productive than others), then how are we held accountable?  How do we know where the “accidents” fall and where the intent lies?

             Just as with everything else, the knowledge is within.  When we listen closely, look back at patterns, discuss with our Team, all of this begins to get very clear, as the shadows drop away.

             Our message from this morning was about that self-accountability.  That sense of being responsible.

Claim it.

             We’re being instructed to stand up and say, “yes, I did that.”  If it’s appropriate, we may apologize.  If not, we simply move on.  Having learned.

             Another part of claiming our own is about believing in our soul’s choices.  We’ve selected certain paths and options TO learn.  And to teach.

             Remember, we are all connected.  So when we take responsibility for who we are, and what we’ve done, we are setting good examples, as well as promoting healing.  And those actions spiral upwards.

             Stepping way from our regular rotation around the card altar today, I was directed to select from that stack we enjoy-but-don’t-always-want-to-look-at.  The draw has brought out validation and our gift.

goddess messages, oracle cards

“Goddess of Nature  ~

‘You reap what you sow;

Your dream is coming to fruition.’

This is a time to reap the rewards and benefits that are derived from the seeds of a project, venture, or idea that you planted some time ago.  It has not all been plain sailing, and many a time you have doubted whether your many efforts and labour would ever be rewarded.

Yet harvest time has come.  A time when you reap what you have sown.  Accept the blessings about to come your way and realise that they are the result of the love, courage, dedication, and commitment you have shown in the recent past.

Give thanks to Mother Nature and enjoy!”
