You all know that Julieland is pretty much all about me, right?  We’re not political here (unless it’s an issue that relates, politically, back to me).  We don’t cover current events (unless that event, somehow, connects to me).  And we don’t really touch on anything that’s too controversial (from my point of view).

             So, we won’t be discussing the heinous and atrocious information coming out of Boston, others are doing a better job.  However, I do need to mention it because it’s actually one aspect of what we ARE going to talk about.

             Over at Sarah’s place, she calls it the Eclipse Season.  I didn’t know there WAS such a thing.   There is, and it’s wild.  In the middle of it we’ll be seeing meteor showers.  And this afternoon our message from the Universe just chimed right on in.  Turmoil, we’ve all been feeling it.

             Eclipses, falling rocks, explosions, tumultuous weather, every tiny bit of it unsettling.  We aren’t makin’ this shit up, kids.  It’s real, and it needs to be faced.  Or dealt with.  Or at the very least, acknowledged and learned from.

             For those of you who pray, I’ll be joining you, in my own individual way.  For those of you who do not, but who believe in the benefits of sending good feelings and loving energy, I’ll be joining you, too.  The more we share goodness, the easier all of this will be for every single one of us.

“Time to Move On  ~

It’s time to let go of the old and worn out so that the new can come in.

Be drawing this card, you are altered to fact that you need to make room for the new by letting go of the old.  First, let go emotionally and intellectually.  In other words, ‘quit’ or say ‘good-bye’ in your mind and heart.

Once you do this, the physical letting-go will happen naturally, in a peaceful and harmonious way.  Ask the Universe to help you make this transition, and don’t plan, scheme, or worry about how your letting-go (or replacement) will occur.  Put all of your energy into prayer and faith, and leave the rest up to Infinite Spirit.

You’ll get definite guidance whenever it’s the right moment to take action.  Until then, stay lovingly detached from your old situation.”

             May I begin by addressing this illustration?  Because it’s not one of my favorites, or rather, the being in the scene is not my favorite.   The sky and water are TERRIFIC, so I’ve left it as it is.

             About the message, read it over again.  Especially the part about us not planning, plotting, or scheming.  This is crucial.  Seriously.  With all of the shit we have coming down on our heads right now, the best way to deal with it is to release.  Let.  It.  Go.  All of it.

             We can’t question these things, or we’ll just get headaches.  For me (and we all know that’s where it all starts and ends here), it’s another lesson.  I’ll channel an affirmation, and go listen to one of my CDs.  I will be releasing.  Letting go.  In the vaguest, and most genuine way possible.

My ow personal deputy, setting up my own personal lettuce patch.

             He used his own dirt, the kind he makes (from the compost/ worm bins).  And then right after I took this shot, we found out that there is a frost warning for tonight.  Because, of course there is.

  1. Well… Hmmm.

    And that’s about it for me right now. 😦 Joining in the prayers for Boston and all victims and their loved ones.

    1. Oh, and thank you so much, Julie, for always being here to bring a smile and laughter into my life, even when my heart is aching. For that I am so grateful. Even when I don’t have much else to say.

      Thank you for showing up. 😀

  2. Great card, and great message for this turbulent time. And I echo Corina above; don’t have much to say, and I am grateful for your blog here, helping me focus some of the world that I don’t consciously pay much attention to. I will send you a picture of my self watering lettuce patch.

    That means so much, thank you.
    And yes, pictures would be great!

  3. We have wee little tiny baby lettuce growing!! It’s about 1/4 of an inch tall, but it will grow! Yay for gardens and hope and love. And I give you this, that a friend posted this morning:
    “For Equilibrium, a Blessing:

    Like the joy of the sea coming home to shore,
    May the relief of laughter rinse through your soul.

    As the wind loves to call things to dance,
    May your gravity be lightened by grace.

    Like the dignity of moonlight restoring the earth,
    May your thoughts incline with reverence and respect.

    As water takes whatever shape it is in,
    So free may you be about who you become.

    As silence smiles on the other side of what’s said,
    May your sense of irony bring perspective.

    As time remains free of all that it frames,
    May your mind stay clear of all it names.

    May your prayer of listening deepen enough
    to hear in the depths the laughter of god.”

    ~ John O’Donohue, To Bless the Space Between Us: A Book of Blessings

    So perfect,
    thank you!

  4. Very good way to address things. And now I want to look into Eclipse Season.

    I hope your lettuce babies survived the frost. If they did and there are more frost warnings, maybe you can bring them inside at night?

    I will go over this message a few more times because I am in transition and would so love for the new to come to me more effortlessly!

    Take care.

    Inside won’t work, but we could put them on our outdoor table which is under the covered section of the deck.

  5. Like you, I had no idea there was such a thing as an Eclipse Season. I’ll have to go digging and see if we can see them from here.

    Don’t have a lot to say. Between the tax mess and Boston, I’m kinda brain fried.

    Throw a sheet over your lettuces for the night. They’ll be fine.

    Karen, thanks for the poem. It’s lovely.

    See reply to Skye in above comment; they’re a bit too delicate right now to hold up a sheet on their own.

    11:09 p.m.

    1. You could put them under the outdoor table, and then put the sheet over the table, with a big enough sheet and small enough table. Or you could use chairs in the same way. A roof covering might not be enough, since they just got transplanted, and were most likely used to a nice cozy greenhouse before that.
