Several times this afternoon and evening I stopped. With a purpose. I was mindful. I appreciated the moment and the surroundings. I honoured the serenity/splashing. Nothing like yesterday. It was beyond wonderful.
Not that I didn’t DO anything, because The Deputy and I were very productive. (I even biked out to class, with a stop on my way home.) It’s just that the entire period of time was on MY terms, in MY time-frame. And I was so thankful.
Tomorrow will be busy as well. But again, not hectic nor tortuous. And the forecast is for no rain. Just continuing fog. Which is also incredibly (surprisingly, even) wet, albeit a softer, slower type.
When I was waking up today (to the sound of a slow-cooked dinner being put together), I heard this:
At first it felt like a repeat of some reminders we received not so long ago. But I know that each one of these messages is valuable in its own right. And that we only get them exactly when we need them.
When we team up with others (either in this world or the Other Side), we are sharing our joy and our burdens. We are gaining a perspective which maybe would not be there if we were alone. We are increasing the positive (or negative, if you’re sitting around having a whine-fest).
That mutual association is vital to our very life, and to the growth of our soul. This one is saying, don’t forget that the journey is not a solitary one. Support and guidance are always available. Always.
On our card altar we’ve come around to this delightful stack, with a terrific additional message.
“Explore Your Options ~
It’s time to look at other possibilities.
It’s a good time to make changes.
Sometimes we think, this is the way it is, and we don’t see other options. By drawing this card, you are being asked to question any situation that you think can’t be changed.
Take a moment and pretend that a magical mermaid has granted you three wishes. You can have anything you want! What will you wish for? The truth is that most anything you desire is possible, and this card asks you to explore your options. At first, you might do so mentally – through daydreams and nighttime dreams.
Then it’s important to turn those possibilities into realities by breaking them into small goals that you can accomplish today. When you explore the new opportunities, the energy of the Universe begins flowing in the direction of your dreams. Any step that you take – no matter how small – will help you see the options that you may never have noticed before.”
