This afternoon was very accomplished for me. I biked, I spent some time with Ryon and his punishing weights, I showered, and I baked*. Tomorrow I have an additional list of shit that needs to be done, but I’m hoping Dan can join me. Erranding is always more fun with a friend.
*Another round of muffins. Less spoon needed, still edible. This time I forgot to add in coconut, so I put it on top at the end.
Look at this. On my way home I spotted that food truck near the bike path. It was there two weeks ago too.
Must investigate this further. The Deputy says he might have seen it in Mayberry not too long ago. Since my beloved Devour guy has left town (hopefully not forever) I need a new food van to frequent. And this one is VERY conveniently located.
In my busy day the card flipping had to wait until I got back, instead of happening first thing. But when I did see it, I was SO pleased with the illustration. Not to mention what it has to say.
“Explore Your Options ~
It’s time to look at other possibilities.
It’s a good time to make a change.
Sometimes we think, this is the way it is, and we don’t see other options. By drawing this card, Heaven now asks you to question any situation that you think can’t be changed.
Take a moment and pretend that a magical mermaid has granted you three wishes. You can have anything you want! What will you wish for? The truth is that most anything you desire is possible and this card asks you to explore your options. At first, you might do so mentally – through daydreams and nighttime dreams.
Then it’s important to turn those possibilities into realities by breaking them into small goals that you can accomplish today. When you explore new opportunities, the energy of the Universe begins flowing in the direction of your dreams. Any step that you take – no matter how small – will help you see options that you may never have noticed before.”
The imagining/manifesting messages are some of my favorites, reminding us that there are practically no limitations in this exciting world. Also, as direct lines of communication from the Universe and our Teams, they come along when we need them the most.
Just like this e-mail I received from Corina yesterday. Precisely the words needed at exactly the perfect time.
“Last night as I lay in bed I was pondering various things, and this just started coming to me, and I had to get up & write it down:
It is only when we love ourselves for who we are that we can truly start to change. For when we love ourselves unconditionally, exactly as we are in this moment, we can let down our defenses. We no longer have to say ‘Well, this is who I am’ in defense of our ‘weaknesses.’ We can step back and ask ourselves ‘Is this who I truly am?’ And in this way we can identify the ‘parts’ of ‘who we are’ that really aren’t part of our true selves, our Divine Selves. We can see the ‘parts’ that have been bestowed upon us by our parents, religious doctrines, society, our friends, and our detractors. When we love ourselves completely, we can know which parts are truly our own, and which are false beliefs about ourselves that have been instilled so strongly in us that we came to believe they were our own.”
When we clear away the old patterns, and we look forward to all of those endless options out there, we can’t help but begin to transform. And by transforming, we are learning our lessons in the highest and most positive way possible.
I’m going to grab a muffin now, and go sit for my Quiet Three Minutes with that adorable wee merbaby, seeing my wishes come true.
