May I begin this post with a huge helping of Gratitude? Because I’d like to thank the Universe, for all of my massive blessings. I can? Great, thanks.
We live on a pretty tight budget, and have mountains of debt. That’s just a fact. The whole world knows that cops don’t get paid shit, and I’m clearly Dan’s biggest expense. (Being a Tarot card reader is not self-supporting, in my case.)
So on Tuesday nights, when we are able to purchase food (good food, organic food, locally grown food, close-by-to-our home food), I feel as though we should acknowledge it as the gift that it is. One that, all too often, gets taken for granted. Frequently by me.
This is a chance to express my gratitude, to say thank you, to step away from the whining and the MeMeMeMe shell-fish-ness for a bit. I live in a beautiful place, surrounded by many (MANY!) people who care about me. What gifts! I sent you my most sincerest thanks, to one and All.
As I woke up today, from a tremendously positive and uplifting dream, the words in my head felt slightly melancholy. But I needed to stop being sad, so I chose to stay with the Happy of my subconscious wanderings. Our message and my intention were again combined.
there is someone,
closer than you realize,
who can use your help.
It seemed as though this was saying several things at once. Please, anyone reading right now, look around in your life. Is there a person near by who maybe can use a helping hand? Or possibly it’s just time to offer an extra nice smile to those that you come across in your day.
As our daily draw reminds us, we truly are all connected. So when we help others, we are helping for the higher good of every one and every thing, including ourselves.
“The Cosmos ~ 41 ~
The Cosmos appears always as an Ally and never as a Challenger. Creativity in all forms is represented by the Cosmos. This is a sign to place your attention on creative projects . . . . they will be successful. Remember that all of life is creative, and you are always co-creating with the Divine.
The Cosmos also represents the principle of infinity and the vastness of the energetic exchange of consciousness influencing all living things. This teaches us that every intention we set is, in fact, contagious, with the power to influence others. We are entangled at our deepest energetic place, so we can’t help but have an effect on others – from an individual level to a global one.
This is a sign to remind you to open up to the well of creativity deep within you and be mindful of your thoughts and actions: both are influencing your outer world.
Most important, keep taking action toward your goals, as the Cosmos responds perfectly to manifest your highest Destiny. Expect to be inspired and to meaningfully touch others with all that you create!”
First of all, how fabulous is it when we get an Ally, who is NEVER a Challenger?! It’s fucking awesome, that’s how!
Next, if you get a chance, click on this illustration, to see the fine details. Or go to Colette’s place, she may have a better rendition. I can’t add anything else to what she says here, it’s complete. And way damn inspirational.
Wisdom Of The Hidden Realms Oracle Cards by Colette Baron-Reid
includes a map, from Dan, HERE. We went to the library and the gym and then got a treat. For a total of 11.097 miles, in 1 hour 11 minutes 18 seconds of pedaling, with the same less-than-speedy pace (9.3 MPH) as yesterday.
This shot is for Karen Buys, who thinks we maybe make this regular stop far too often, or perhaps it’s just that she’s tired of seeing it on the Deputy’s Facebook page.
Wedding Weekend Sharing:
is a view from our seat. Of the bride and groom, and the wonderful setting.
My camera skills seem to be getting worse, not better. But this gives you a nice general idea of how lovely Paige and Ryan’s event was (and how lovely they are).
