Today we’ll be looking at two things. Wait. Three things. Yeah, that’s it. Three things. Our message du jour, The Daily Dog, and….. hell. Four things. Yep, today we’ll be looking at four things. (Edited to add: turned into five things, I’m simply a Pentacle Person, through and through.)
Dragonflies (which I spelled incorrectly yesterday but I don’t care) are where we’ll begin. Here is the place that was mentioned in our comments, it tells about symbolism. It’s GREAT! Long, but wonderful. Go there. Seriously. Read it all. It’s terrific! Thanks Robin! This answers SO many questions. Also, wow.
Do you remember when Hanny sent me a new water bottle? Have I even told you that story yet? Well, she did. Send me one. It was a promotional or a special deal or a research item of some sort for this article. AnyHOO, I took it for a ride today. And promptly dented it. BADLY.
Totally not my fault. It jumped out of the nice holder dealie that Anna from the bike shop installed for me. (Not her fault either.)
Also? Aluminum is hard to get a good picture of! The top was scraped and damaged (which maybe you can see). The bottom was gouged and scratched (which you clearly can NOT see from this angle). And several spots on the lower portion of the body of it were dented and smashed and marred beyond help (which you can kinda see in this shot).
After I got home* Dan tightened down the screws on my cage, and I drank all the water. The functionality of the container was not hampered in the least. Certainly a sturdy product my Hurricane gave me.
*I was using the bicycle as my green mode of transportation. Today was teeth cleaning day!!! Which, if you recall, I adore. We have a new girl in the office. She’s delightful.
On our card altar we have a tweak. Much like the fallen hydration unit, not my fault. Seems as though lots of crap is beyond my control today.
“The Spirit Whisperer ~ 3 ~
divine guidance, higher knowing
As an Ally, the Spirit Whisperer comes to you heralding the miraculous and the inspired. She whispers guidance from the Divine through your higher senses so that you can hear her wisdom and know her love for you. She is committed to helping you intuit the next right action and steers you away from trouble.
The Spirit Whisperer keeps you inspired to move forward, always knowing – just in time – the correct next step. She guides you to fulfill your highest purpose. When she appears, it is a sign of inspired ideas that, with continual action, lead to success. That is a very good omen.
If your question is about a relationship, the Spirit Whisperer speaks of soul connections, past lives, and great learning through mutual mirroring. She will whisper how long, how short, how deep, and how sweet the relationship can be. There were soul bargains made even before you both were born here, and an exploration is in order. You may move forward, but keep listening to the Spirit Whisperer for the lessons that the vulnerability of love brings.
As Challenger, the Spirit Whisperer warns that you are about to go astray and need her guidance. Red flags are waving, and you must pay attention, lest you find yourself cleaning up messes you didn’t even know you made.
She challenges you to start again and trust your intuition. In time you will be back on track. On this occasion you can’t possibly go wrong since you’re that much more aware of the possible challenges you need to step away from.
If this is about a relationship, you may be repeating something in your past that you don’t need to relearn. Stay away, as this may end up a costly distraction. That said, lessons learned over and over make for great wisdom later.”
Before I’d read this definition I had decided to touch a bit on past lives in tonight’s post. Funny how these things work out.
Oops, I got distracted by a barking Grand Dog there for a bit and had to step away from the desk.
Danger averted, we’ve checked all exits and Max has cleared the way for me to continue. Where the hell was I? Oh right, past lives. Okay, so. I see them. And you can too. There is an exercise that will help you. Sometimes mine happen spontaneously, but other times I need to go track one down.
Begin by envisioning, or adding on to, a sacred space location in your mind’s eye. You’ll need a staircase of some sort. Or simply steps leading down will also do. They can be ultra basic, highly decorative, or anything in-between that pops into your head.
At the bottom of your stairs or steps is a long hallway, row of doors, archway, or some other lengthy corridor that will fill our needs for this project. Again, leave it up to your imagination. The only requirement is that there are portals of some sort which you can go through. Doors work well.
Making a point of breathing consciously and regularly, approach the entryway that feels right to you. (Sometimes you need to walk up and down a few times to get a good impression of where you should be going for this particular situation.) Say clearly that you are able to SEE, but have no need to FEEL, all that you experience, and move forward. Chances are that there will be some pain in the lifetime you are going to be locating. After all, you did DIE at the end of it. So protect your current psyche with the assurance that you are now merely an observer; it’s not necessary for you to relive all of that emotion again.
Go with it. Allow yourself to watch, gather knowledge, honor the experience, remember significant points, and recognize those people who are with you now. When I do this I also look around for some sign of what year I’m in. It’s helpful to also listen for names and locations.
Recently I had some physical manifestations that were bugging the ever living shit out of me. This exercise was hugely beneficial in narrowing down what was going on when (and why). We mirror our past lives in many ways. When we have died at a specific age it is not uncommon for us to experience symptoms of what killed us at the same time in our current lives. Illnesses are often paralleled with when we had them (or died from them) in other lives to correspond with this one.
I’ve had excellent success with this type of work, and I really hope you guys do too. Do not give up if you don’t get a clear ”movie-like” vision the very first time. Also, don’t second guess your memories. No, we weren’t all famous people, but we were all SOME people, totally worthwhile individuals, as we are now.
