Agreeable Combined

             Another branch off of what is becoming one of our standard themes is where today’s message will take us.  I saw images of people working and being together.  And enjoying themselves, in the process.

             It was delightful.  But, there was also a tone of strength about everything that I was shown.  Like, it’s empowering to be the helper as much as the helped.  We are fortified when we are together, more when we are many.

C0 – operating.

             As in: partnership.   This idea of energy exchange has come up several times recently.  Any time that we connect with someone, there is a transfer of energy.  A back-and-forth happens.

             When we co-create, co-work, or co-operate, or any other type of team effort, we expand the positivity on a higher level than can even be imagined.    We manifest Joy in the doing of things together.

             Within our regular rotation around the card altar right now, this is being validated by what showed up as our daily draw.

oracle cards, gateway messages, savoring pleasures

“Savoring Pleasures  ~ 

I fully embrace bliss in my life.

Card Meaning:

Fill your life with people, experiences, and places that bring you delight and joy.  Live deliciously!  Release the need to be practical in all situations.   Surround yourself with beauty and sumptuous pleasures.

The Universe wants you to know:

You are not meant to solely work hard and be dutiful and diligent.  Life should be lived abundantly and fully.  Give yourself permission to be happy and experience profound gratification.

Embrace pleasure wherever you can.  Create personal environments that fill you with deep satisfaction.    Cherish your friendships.  Love often and deeply.  Allow your senses to be satisfied.  

See, hear, taste, touch, and feel the beauty within and around you.  Drink well, eat well, and dance into the early-morning hours.

Questions to ask yourself:

How can I experience even more pleasure than I do now?  What helps me embrace bliss and delight?  What do I need to release or transcend in order to live fully and sensuously?

Affirmation:

I fully embrace bliss in my life.”

Safe, Cautious, and Caring

             It has become a most fascinating way to wake up, this message-every-day phenomenon.  Now, nearing a full year since it began, I still don’t understand it entirely.  But, as you well know, I also don’t question it.

             As long as they keep arriving, I’ll keep sharing them.  Some mornings, the images and feelings are much more urgent than others.  Each one is distinct and individual.  Today’s falls on the “important” side.

Taking Care

             As you ALSO know by now, I’m not exactly Sally Safety.  (Bike riding with no shoes is merely the latest incarnation.)  However, that doesn’t mean I’m not aware of my surroundings, or possible dangers.  Nor does it mean that I am careless.

             We’ve discussed situational awareness here before, and this is similar.  When we are alert, we are better able to understand what is happening,what is taking place, both within and without.  Which also helps us to stay knowledgeable.

             But this message talks, too, of Self-Care.  Taking Care is another way of saying CareGiver*, so today we won’t be having a daily draw.  Instead, I’m sharing my other calendar page for the month.  Because when we start with caring for our selves, we are also caring for our Mother.

*The Giving and Taking being a fair energy exchange.

"I appreciate the beautiful world I live in."

I appreciate the beautiful world I live in.

             Along the side we have this, from the 2014 version of “You Can Heal Your Life”:

“I love this marvelous planet.

The earth is a wise and loving mother.  She provides everything we could ever need.  There is water, food, air, and companionship.  We have an infinite variety of animals, vegetation, birds, fish, and other natural wonders.

We have treated this planet very poorly, using up valuable resources.  If we continue, we will have no place to live.

I commit to lovingly taking care of and improving the quality of life in this world.  My thoughts are clear and loving and concerned.  I express random acts of kindness whenever I can.  It is my planet, and I help to make it a better place to live.

I imagine a peaceful planet, with a clean, healthy environment for all.  I see all the people on the planet opening their hearts and their minds and working together to create a world where it is safe for us to love each other.

It is possible, and it begins with me.”

             Thank you, Louise Hay.  This is the perfect way to celebrate Earth Day.  (I apologize for the rhyme, it was unintentional, but also unavoidable.)

OutReach

             If you celebrate this Spring Holy Day, I hope yours was festive and beautiful.  My mother and I have postponed our family event for a full week.  Big long story, no one died, it’s fine.  She and I just have a poor relationship with time (as everyone already knows).  I’ll keep you updated.

             As far as spiritual messages go, the images that I was shown this morning were brief.  And clear.  Also, they seemed urgent, and important.

Lend a helping hand.

             It seems that our support is needed.  Someplace.  And from what I hear, each and every one of us, individually, will know precisely where and when, at the right time.

            So, we should be ready.  And, as our daily draw reminds us, we are never to be of assistance out of obligation or guilt.  We help only out of a true and honest caring.   (If we actually couldn’t care less about the situation, well then, don’t bother with it.)

oracle and self-care cards, messages of love

“Love  ~

Choose love.

Let your love become a powerful force for change.”

             And don’t forget what these cards are called.  Because when it comes to helping, and being a helper, we always need to start with ourselves, then work out from there.

Fresh geese babies!

Fresh geese babies!

             We rode along one of our local river’s tributaries this afternoon.  And were gifted with so much adorableness we almost couldn’t stand it.

And duck babies, too!

And duck babies, too!

             There were several (5?) more ducklings in this group, but Dan was too close to Mama, so I made him get back on his bike.  My favorite part of spotting them all was the tiny wee noises they make.

              (Caiman, croc, and gator hatchlings make a similar sound, which is similarly beyond adorable.)

Ready, and Waiting.

             Keeping in mind the fluid and flexible nature of the Universe, and how it opposes rigidity, today’s message needs to be understood with caution.  Because we are NOT being told to be overly structured.  (Even if, at first, it kinda sounds that way.)

             We are, however, being given a suggestion which will ease our human/scientific brains.

Plot, plan, prepare.

             This alliterated recommendation arrived with some seriously unpleasant images.  I was shown views of what could happen, should we disregard the care of others, disregard the emotions and suggestions of those we love.

             For full comprehension of this message today, it will help to accept that our life in this body is exactly where it needs to be.  THEN we are better able to step forward, with a considerate, heartfelt, and über carefully constructed map of where we’d most like to be headed.

             Adding to all of that, this daily draw has arrived, taking us outside the regular rotation around our card altar.  I was very specifically directed here, as if it were an additional piece for our puzzle.

angel messages, oracle cards, patience,

“Patience  ~

Archangel Jophiel:

‘Your dreams are blooming more rapidly than you realize.  Still, they need nurturing and patience.’

Additional Message:

‘It takes time for a seedling to push through the ground and mature into a flower-bearing plant.  Yet, each moment of a plant’s life cycle can bring joy to those who notice its beauty.

In the same way, enjoy the process of realizing your dreams.  Slow down and feel gratitude, as each step brings your manifestation into tangible form.  Notice the lessons and love that spring from every moment that you engage in acting upon your dreams.’

Working with Jophiel:

Jophiel helps us experience more grace and peace in our lives through slowing down and noticing the beauty that already surrounds us.  She asks us to savor and enjoy each moment, rather than hinging our happiness on some future goals.

Call upon Jophiel anytime you feel rushed, stressed, or unhappy.  She will increase your awareness and appreciation of life’s everyday miracles.”

            Yes, it is lilac season, and I still don’t have any of my own bloomings.  The new (baby) shrub in front seems to be a slow-starter.  We may need to get her a companion.  For now, I’ll just clip from what is hanging over my side fence.

 

 

As Need Be, As Is

             Among us are teams, duos, couples who pair well and share generously of their gifts.  They’ve been together “forever” it seems.  Their relationship is idyllic.

            Maybe, maybe not.  What we’re really seeing is the concept of YinYang in the flesh.  That God/Goddess ideal, but up and walking around in current times.

            It isn’t always a male-female match though, or even a romantic combining. (That part’s not even really the point.  On a spiritual level we are all/both genders, so the divisiveness over body design and physical interest is absurd and beyond ridiculous to even discuss.)

            This type of Power Couple (on the metaphysical plane obviously, not in a monetary sense), have come together for the highest good of all.  They’ve chosen this path specifically.

            Their “assignment” here is about being . . . . .

side by side.

             Working together in such a way as to be inspirational is the purpose.  Wearing their Pairing in clear and honest fashion so as to reach the most, those  who can be aided best by this exact situation.

            At some point in our lives, our past-present-future lives, we have been this duo.  And will be again.  It’s a valuable lesson in mutual respect, lovingkindness, selflessness, and generosity.  While it is challenging to walk a path alone, it becomes twice that to do it as Two.

            Back within our regular rotation around the card altar today, the message of this concept is validated by what our daily draw shows.

“Molybdenite  ~

a message from the stars  

Your life is always held in perfect equilibrium by the divine natural order that exists within all creation.  Believing that you have somehow failed or made the wrong decision or choice is simply an illusion.

There is nothing you need to change or fix in your life, apart from your sometimes unbalanced perceptions – mainly your self criticism.  Know that you are always worthy of love and you are eternally blessed.

Start to accept all of who you are, as you are, and  you will see your life magically and lovingly transform.  All is in perfect divine order.

From a spiritual perspective there are no mistakes in life.  Every experience is a lesson in love and wisdom.”
