Road Report: cinq

             One of the methods with which we can grow and advance, is to be a participating member of our community, family, tribe.  And the best part about this, is that we can all fashion our own way to suit our own individual journey.

Teaching and Learning

Giving and Sharing

             By asking the most important question, ‘how may I serve?’ we’re then truly listening for our answer, making us better able to step forward and elevate our path.

             I know, sometimes the Low Road is exactly where we need to be in order to get the grittiest work done.  But, that’s a place we can always hop down to, then jump back up off of.

             Here, thanks to our new addition, is an inspiring idea about how to keep us on track.

“Devotion  ~  44  ~  Nature Spirits

Inspiration, Contemplation, Nature, Faith

The presence of (Mr and Mrs) God is (are) everywhere, so if you feel disconnected from the Divine,  you are the one who left.

Your Nature Spirits are beckoning you back to a place of awareness that reconnects you to your source.  Do not allow your mind to isolate you in fear or get stuck dwelling on misery.

Instead, go outside and take in the natural world – which is a beautiful gift for you to enjoy.  See the Divine all around you.  Focus on the beauty, power, and holiness that nature affirms.

Humbly surrender to this greatness of forces present in all things, including you.  Your Nature Spirits’ message:

breathe in the Divine.  You are Source, and Source is you.”

Travel Notes:

will simply be the reporting of a phenomenal Nature Spirit sighting.  One delightful hummingbird showed up this afternoon, as a reminder.  And we are thankful.

             Also, we went to a ballgame HERE.  It was gorgeous.

Road Report: veir

             Exactly at our half way point, the adventure is going supremely well.  I have complete faith that the rest of our trip will continue in this fabulous way.

             It’s been so awesome, in fact, that I’m easily receiving messages and ideas for sharing.  This morning I woke up with a reminder for us to continue our gratitude in:

gifts of Mother Nature.

             Ideal! Right where we were all sitting, at our festive event earlier, there were some gorgeous towering trees.  (See Instagram for a phone photo.)  Yep, I saw those signs.

             Today’s draw is also beautifully encouraging, as well.  And when we blend it with our suggestion from the Universe, it becomes a very powerful combination.  Entirely appropriate for this wedding weekend.

oracle cards, commitment messages

“Commitment  ~  36  ~

‘A true commitment is a responsibility of the heart, mind, body, and soul.  This is a good time to make one.’

Partnerships formed at this time are harmonious and powerful.  The Commitment card also indicates the natural evolution of a relationship from its inception to a literal or metaphysical marriage.

At the very least there is a promise of fulfillment in some form.  However, you must be conscious of what you’re committing to.  Be clear about the nature of your commitment and your responsibility to it.

Others are more willing to enter into partnerships at this time.  Remember that your partnership with Spirit – and the highest version of your own self – will engage the highest self in another.”

Travel Notes:

are all about dogs this time.  Because, there are some everywhere we go.  And everywhere we are.

              From my Aunt Jenny, to her Pomeranian companion:

Ted.  You haven’t done something, have you?”  (He had, we thought, evidence being the foam bits of dog-toy guts we found on the floor.)

            About Tess, the Great Dane we’re staying with for several days,

she ate an entire box of biscuits.  But not the box!” when we were discussing past fried chicken and biscuit-with-gravy dinners.

Road Report: the third posting

             Before we left town, I knew that a new deck for our card altar was on its way to us.  So, I waited.

             Ta da!  THIS ONE has appeared.  And today’s Channeled Message did, too.

             We all have our Team, and right now is a perfect opportunity to say thanks.   By acknowledging and accepting this help, we are inspired and guided.

 oracle cards, inner child

 “Imagination / Inner Child  ~  7  ~

Nocturnal Dreams, Daydreaming, Reverence, Fantasy

Your Divine Inner-Child spirit is knocking at your door, inviting you to step away from a serious life filled with too much work and drudgery and allow yourself some well-deserved playtime.  YOur life is presently overcontrolled by others’ needs and much too burdened with responsibility.  Consequently, you’re losing touch with your inspiration and creativity.

Listen to your Inner Child.  Take time to daydream, fantasize, visualize, wonder, and explore.  Feed your Inner Child with art classes, theatre tickets, concerts, and other types of recreational activities.  If you don’t honor your Inner Child’s needs, she/he will get your attention by throwing one heck of a childish tantrum, manifesting in a chronic bad mood or a nasty depression.

You need this magic right now.  Your Inner Child’s message is:

Come play with me.”

are not accompanied by a photo but you can use your imagination.  We spotted an amazingly gorgeous snowy egret.  Right next to the freeway.  Majestically and silently perched on a wall near someone’s neighborhood.

Road Report: el numero dos

             I’m pretty sure, as a kid, and all of my growing up years, my family never took a vacation.  I know that as an adult, I certainly never have.  Road-trip traveled, packed like the potato famine immigrants we came from, in an unsafe vehicle to see family?  Oh, hell  yeah.

             Probably the closest we’ve ever come, us Pentacle People, was when we’d take the witchlings to the coast, or those few camping trips we made with family and friends.  But still, a true vacation, like I’ve read and heard about?  Nope.

             This journey is a funny combination, a kind of hybrid.  Still not quite a vacation, though it is similar to our wedding travels/honeymoon trip.  And, interestingly enough, our anniversary is today.

             Ooops, I guess a Special Occasion Draw would have been appropriate.   Oh well, after 32 years married (34 years together), we’re used to just being ourselves and taking what comes along.

             Here’s what I was directed to flip over for right now.  It’s a nicely authentic message, no matter where we apply it.

animal messages, oracle cards, seal symbology

“Seal  ~

‘Hard work and inspiration are the foundation of true creativity.’

Seal inhabits the watery depths from which spring imagination, intuition, the power of dreams, and the infinity of creation.  That Seal gives birth on land shows that these landscapes of your mind may be made material.

Do your dreams show desires not yet acknowledged?  Then the time is ripe to make them your own.

True creation and inspiration are also yours, but will remain discarnate without the hard work which alone can give them form.  Seal’s wisdom is arduous, but its rewards are immense.”

             And moving on to Florida (2 of ‘em), a super illegal Colorado, more than one Wisconsin, a new New mexico, an Indiana trailer and truck, a very interesting Missouri moving company trailer, and one lone Pennsylvania (who really just wanted to be in our way).

Road Report: First

              We are in a hotel.  Oh, how I do so love these accommodations.  ANY accommodations!  With extras or not, lush or sparse, don’t even care.  Just the fact that it’s a great big clean room, somewhere else.

             We’ve just begun this journey, and that can be so much fun.  I’m wondering if we may have a theme this time.  Hard to say, I’m merely the radio.  But I’ll let you know the minute I hear.

             What I do know though, is that I’ve been working very hard on not taking any stress or negativity with me.  Here is the affirmation I’m being directed to share, as we spiral ever upwards:

“I am glad to be alive and so grateful for the good that has come my way.”

             And doesn’t it go beautifully with the daily draw?  True, so true.

fairie messages, laughter, oracle cards

“Laughter  ~

‘Every cloud not only has a silver lining, but it also has a humorous side.  Try to objectively stand back from your situation and find a humorous twist.

Laughter will help you see your life from a new perspective so that you can receive creative insights and solutions.’

You are much too serious about life right now, according to the fairies.  They aren’t asking you to neglect your responsibilities, let go of the sacred reverence for life, or defend your emotions with jokes.  Instead, you are asked to see the humor that runs through the thread of life.  Like a brilliant comedy, our lives become more enjoyable when we can see them through the eyes of a humorist.

Laughter helps us to stand back and see ourselves and our situations more objectively.  When we laugh, we relax.  And when we relax, creative solutions and renewed energy course through us more easily.  

So, take time today to laugh.

Affirmation:

I find the humor in life, and I laugh easily.”

Travel Notes:

this will be the only time during our trip that we won’t be staying over with family.  Between the two of us, Dan and I have lots of generous and loving relatives.
