Let’s begin with some astrological updates.  Neptune is now on the way out of Retrograde.  I know next to nothing about this planet.  Mercury is my connection, so learning about another is fascinating to me.

             Fortunately, we have an outstandingly fabulous resource in Sarah.  She explains it all HERE .  Have you seen this post yet?  Well, go now.  We shall wait, patiently ……..  Back already?  Good.  Because this aspect of who and what we are relates perfectly to what I was just reading.

             The idea that we cannot have both faith and fear simultaneously is one that pops up all over the place.  With this Neptune info, we can see where that struggle comes from: ego!

             This afternoon, before I got out of bed, mine was put in its place.  I thought I was waking up earlier, and sorting out the message in my head, but then, the entire aspect of my dreaming state changed.

             It became a sort of mysterious fantasy-based reality.  Like if someone had asked me, “what would you want if you could have anything?” and my ego answered.  There were tempting images of monetary wealth and growing prosperity.  All of it selfish.

             It became hard to pull away.  But then, I didn’t have to, my view switched again at that point.  As my subconscious stepped in and reminded me that we CAN have so very much.  To a point.  But when we are greedy, or self-minded, we lose out on sharing.

             Then, I heard this:

Sure, the journey can be challenging,

but know that the gifts, blessings, and lessons it brings are more than worth the trouble.

             When we move our minds to a higher plane, we become richer than we ever could imagine.  In validation of that Chase Your Dreams message, we CAN go after what our heart sings for, but we should never do it simply from that ego starting point.

             We are encouraged to Go For It, even if the road is a bit rough, and navigating those pot-holes is challenging, in the end we CAN succeed, and we CAN have all that we want.  Or ya know, what we need, anyway.  All of it is part of our great adventuring as we journey along.

             Leaving our regular rotation around the card altar, we’ve come to yet another validation.

angel messages, abundance blessings

“Angel of Abundance  ~

A steady flow of abundance is about to manifest.

The Angel of Abundance has shown up in your reading today to bestow a special blessing upon you.  Accept this blessings of light and allow it to flow through your heart and mind; allow it to both illuminate and inspire you.

A steady flow of abundance is about to manifest in your life because of  your willingness in recent months to give and receive in equal measure.  True abundance manifests when we love and value ourselves as much as we love and value those that are dear to us.

Keep an open heart and mind and continue to give and receive freely.  Accept all the abundance the universe is offering you in the clear knowledge that you deserve it.”

             Isn’t that the perfect summation?  I don’t need to add a thing to it.  (Also, this image is the one that’s on the backs of these cards.  It’s stunning in its simplicity and beauty.)

Today’s Mileage:

was to the pool and back, in the full-on dark, both ways, for a total of 3.88 miles, in 24 minutes 30 seconds, with an average pace of 9.5 MPH.  Side note to tonight’s ride, as I was leaving the house and plugging my earphones in to the hand-me-down music player that I use for alone-pedaling trips, I realized no sound was coming out.

             That would be because it was stone-ass dead.  I have not been on the bike in so many days that it has completely run down and I hadn’t even noticed.  I ended up using my phone (which has all the same music on it).  Not for the first time am I glad for this upgrade.  (Yeah, something I never thought I’d say.  But I just did.)

  1. Given that I am trying very hard to figure out who I am, who this Authentic Self is, the idea of right now letting go of all that is highly uncomfortable. How can I fall into nothingness, then come back to something when I don’t have a something to come back to?

    Abundance is good. Cindy is buying me cold-weather wear, which I am grateful for but uncomfortable accepting. I want to have my own personal abundance so that a) I don’t have to depend on the kindness of friends, b) I can take care of my own needs, and c) I can eventually give to others without putting myself into a position of need in the process.

    As usual, lately, the messages are a very big challenge to me. It would be easier to face them if I weren’t already drowning in challenges.

    See Barb’s reply, it was spot-on.

    Also? Stop worrying about repaying, and just say thank you. We watched this woman named Anne Burrell the other night, she says, “accept and move on.” So, let’s do that for a while and see how it goes.

  2. I’m in the pretty early stages of “authentic self,” Skye, but I think if it truly is authentic self, you can’t lose it. What we give up is “ego” self, that part that says “if I don’t have this job/relationship/amount-of-money I will die”– but the soul-being that we truly are we can’t lose. If that makes sense.

    Julie, I wonder if you could say some more about what you meant when you said we cannot have both faith and fear? I feel like I feel those two at the same time fairly often– I might even say that it is faith that helps me move past the fear.

    You know astrology is not my thing, but I found Sarah’s musings on Neptune to be pretty interesting. Thanks for pointing them out.

    Good suggestion! I’ll do some meditations and see what else comes up with that “fear/faith” idea.
    And today, I saw a car with a HUGE window sticker:
    heed His message

    I was like, WTF?!

  3. *sigh* I’m going to let all this percolate while I try to keep my head from exploding due to sinus. It’ll be interesting to see if I can manage to get this much posted. I’ve already accidently deleted one comment. I would stomp away, but it would hurt too much.

    No, stomping away won’t help. Deep breaths and focusing on the letting go? Now THAT, that would help.
