This post has the potential to show up belated. But I’m not beating my tardy self elf up over it. Shit happens. And today, shit DID happen.
One of the biggest news items I want to share is how I escaped death. Oh, wait, maybe I’m slightly exaggerating. But it COULD have been very bad. A wasp hit me in the face then fell down my shirt. While I was on the bike.
I was so shocked at the occurrence that I yanked on my top and kept pedaling along. Funny, like my legs weren’t attached to the upper half which was being assaulted. The offending insect flew off.
Probably because there is more air-space than cleavage, I was not stung. Whew! Dodged a bullet there. Dan and I were talking about it later and we surmised that IF there had been contact I totally would have just fallen off into traffic.
Good thing that wasn’t the case. Later though, I also averted disaster when we stopped to pick up a quick dinner before gathering our groceries. Everything I tried to order was out. Gone. No longer in the building.
He asked the nice serving girl to give us a few moments, and then talked me off the ledge. It took a while, but it worked. See how far I’ve come, you guys?! We stayed, I didn’t fall apart, it all turned out nicely.
Also nice? Was today’s channeled message. Very uplifting and gentle. A pleasant reminder for anyone who isn’t in the habit of doing this.
Spiritual cleansing is always a good idea.
It can be done so many ways, depending on your time, commitment, and belief. But one of the simplest is to just stand calmly and quietly, with a nice candle burning if you have one and lean that way. Then raising your arms you sweep away all negativity. Use large motions, as if you were wafting off a bad smell.
Using incense, sage, and crystals are additional options. Cleansing with salt, or salt water, air or fire (heat, really) all work well too. Whatever you choose, as long as you follow through with this suggestion. Remember, we get these recommendations at exactly the right time.
Much like this card today. I was directed out of our regular rotation so we could see this one.
“Awakening Your True Self ~
You are beginning to recover your natural identity, including your old sense of humor, interests, passions, and desires. Trust that any confusion or changes you’re currently experiencing are part of your healthful evolution.
As if a cloud has lifted from your mind and heart, you are beginning to see life from the perspective of your old self…….
Now, you are emerging. You’re back! As you recover your authentic self, your life and your personality are going through big changes. Hold tight, and allow these changes to occur. The fairies ask you to trust that the parts of your life and personality that are falling away are inauthentic and unnecessary. Know that you’re building a solid foundation of truth, and that everything is working out perfectly right now.
I now give myself permission to be true to myself.”
