Continuing Spring-like weather this afternoon.  On me, as I pedaled downtown.  By which I mean that it rained (or hailed)  nearly the entire time.  Oh wait, at one point there was sun AND rain, simultaneously.   VERY appropriate for the season!

             My reason for going that direction was an appointment with *A* today.  We discussed the concept of Past Lives-Future Healing.  I’m sure I’ve blogged about it before, but let’s pretend we don’t know that, and I’ll catch us all up on the basics.

             The phrase is actually a book by Sylvia Browne, but the notion captured me immediately when I first heard about it.  It makes SO damn much sense!  We sometimes carry cell memory and soul reminders over with us into THIS life, often manifesting as illness or conflict.  THAT was our topic this afternoon.  I have baggage.  Leftover crap that really needs to be dealt with.  Especially since some of it I’ve been carting along for MANY damn lives.

             This entire construct corresponds so nicely with the Present Moment Consciousness work we’ve been doing here, too.  When we actively BE HERE NOW, we are better able to release those old negative patterns and issues from before.  When we focus on the Zen Balance of CURRENT AWARENESS, we are better able to appreciate where we are and what we still need to work on.

             Our message from the newest stack in our rotation expands on this idea, and it goes a step further.  Like, once we’ve established that serenity, we can then move forward, making great progress on our spiritual journey.

“Breaking Barriers  ~

‘I am expanding beyond limitations into joy and freedom!’

Card Meaning:

There are times to go with the flow, but this isn’t one of them.  Now is the time to break through self-imposed barriers.  Gather your inner forces, and break free from whatever is holding you back.

What The Universe Wants You To Know:

Don’t let fear – or even reason – prevent you from overcoming barriers.  Trust your instincts and push through.  Remember to keep going and don’t stop.  Just as it takes effort for a chick to hatch out of its shell or a seedling to push through the hard-packed earth, this is your time to use supreme effort to break out of your own shell and reach the light.

The energy of ‘breaking through’ isn’t always neat and tidy, so it’s okay to feel messy and chaotic for a while.   Eventually the situation will sort itself out and peace will reign.

Questions To Ask Yourself:

Do I have any self-imposed barriers or limitations?  Are there any situations, people, or places that I need to break away from?  What could my life be like if I plowed through my blockages?


I am expanding beyond limitations into joy and freedom!”

             First, I love this affirmation, that’s why I put it up twice.  We really need to keep repeating it.  Also, in my notes from this afternoon’s appointment I have written down, “how much more could I help others if I was not so distracted by my physical-focused impairments?”  Questions To Ask My Own Impaired Self Elf should be a separate and specific category.

  1. Hmm – I have tahini in the fridge.
    The Mad Quilter sounds way cool. A quilter with a sense of humor and drama. Doesn’t get better than that.

    Not much better, no. 😛

  2. I should have blogged about my last therapy session immediately, because I have forgotten what we did, and there was a breakthru of sorts. I remember it now a little bit because of this card. It was about breaking thru the blockages, or something like that. Sigh. I’ll have to ask her on Monday, our last meeting. 😦

    Very cool affirmation. And I hope the tahini cookies came out fabulously.

    They came out very good. Different from the last batch, slightly. They are sort of odd, just because of what’s in ’em, but yeah, definitely good.

  3. Love this!
    I think of the negative issues of the past as chips that block the inner workings of my machine. They aren’t always present, but when they prevent the wheels from turning I have to dig them out and throw them away. The worst thing to do is ignore or go into denial. Show them the light of day, kick them to the curb, and in that way grow and proceed efficiently.
    I’ve been tossing a ton of chips this past year, but even with that progress there is still work to do.

    At first this analogy really bothered me, just the THOUGHT of some foreign thing inside delicate gear works HURTS! But then, I used that very idea while I was mentally processing a difficult situation this afternoon.
    So, Robena’s machine chips for the win!
