In thematic news from the Universe today, our daily draw says the same thing that yesterday’s did. Or pretty close anyway. This message is like an affirmation for my afternoon. I met with *A* and we congratulated each other on what a great team we make. Much progress already, in this project of creating a better Me.
“Sodalite ~ intuition, perception, meditation, calm, strength, determination
Keep your calm for this will help strengthen your determination to quietly pursue your dreams. Set aside a little time each day to meditate and reflect on all that you wish to create in your life. Be guided by what you instinctively feel in your heart and trust your intuition, for in doing so, you will draw to you all that is necessary for you to create that which your heart so desires.
At the same time, let go of rigidly fixed expectations or time frames, and trust that your dreams may manifest in ways you have not yet imagined. This card is a positive confirmation; keep the dream alive.”
A lot of what I am working on, personally, is about letting go. So this was really so perfect. It’s also a brilliant reminder of how we are in charge but we aren’t. We have some control, but we do best when we relinquish much of it. Releasing seems to be a challenge for many of us.
I’ve been aware of how much I need to let go for a long time, and as I’ve been acknowledging that reality, it’s truly getting easier to do. With some things. As far as expectations are concerned, I have few left. And I don’t mind this situation, not one little bit. (Funny how that works out.)
Before I got on the bike earlier, and headed out for my appointment, I briefly drove the vacuum cleaner around the living room. We are practicing some new/renewed behavior training with Max, as I reclaim space here in The Burrow. Unfortunately, my old belief that nothing good ever comes from housework nearly derailed me. But then a miracle occurred.
That earring* got sucked up. And made way too much noise. So I shouted (because that’s my initial reaction to nearly everything) and quickly shut off the offending machine. Dan came over as I was loudly exclaiming many bad words. He rescued both parts. I am supremely relieved.
*Not my jewelry but I will repair it for the Empress it belongs to. A new French Wire is easy to replace. Whew!
Speaking of my youngest daughter and the Grand Dog who still seems to be with me a lot, here is another phone photo from our trip. It was accompanied by the caption, “windows are for viewing.”
When I go out, and leave Mr Maximum and my Beloved to their own devices, it’s always fun to find out what they did in my absence. Today, it was this.
In one area of our front yard these is a small composting type of pile, where all manner of detritus goes. We had two small (left-over from LAST year) pumpkins that my mother grew, so a few months ago, they went out as well, and that’s what you can see. Near Hedgehog. Right after that shot was taken though, this precious toy was retrieved, and brought safely inside.
