Over and In

             Reminiscent of yesterday’s theme about the “one sock” process, this morning’s message arrived in living color, with sound and much emotion.  The mindful slowing is really (really!) important here.

Address the core.

             When we pare down the most overwhelming problems to their very basic structure, their very skeletal framework, they can be quite manageable.  Of course, that’s not easy, either.

             In fact, the very process itself can be challenging.  So, back to our simple-ing down, we go.  Stripping back all but the very root.

             The images that I was shown were calming (not at first, though, eventually).  “Sit still” was the initial instruction on how to begin the centering.

             “Go within,” was the next.  When we are calm, one with our breath and heartbeat, we are able to hear* the most.  Which leads us to accomplish the most.

*Hear, and see, and smell, and feel, and sense on all levels.

             To go along with this message, we have left our regular rotation and gone with the newest cards for our daily draw.

“Flying  ~  20  ~

‘You have the power to see things from a higher perspective.’

If you were a bird flying high in the air, what would you see?   When you soar above life’s challenges and opportunities, a new perspective becomes available.

Today you have invisible wings that allow you to swiftly bring your circumstances into alignment with your highest purpose.   This is a sign that your waiting is over, that all your hard work has paid off and the things that you hoped for are no longer beyond your scope.

You have the ability to reach for the stars and find one with your name on it.  Spread  your wings and soar.  The angels are waiting for you.”

             Interesting side note.  Last night I had the most fascinating dreams/visions of flying, parachuting-and-landing.  Then folding up the ‘chute, to go out and do it again.  Never any plane in sight, just the skydiving views.

The Latest Project:

is this one that I finished last week.  Hand-quilted, both hand- and machine-pieced.

             This one (18 by 19 inches), and a blue version (20 inches square), are now available at our Etsy shop.

The back.  It's one solid piece of fabric, the quilting is what makes it look shaded.   Apparently.

             They are intended as place mats, or centerpiece mats.  But really, they could be used as an accent to anything.  If, ya know, you were a decorate-y type of person.

  1. Awesome quilty things! I love quilty things. I have sundresses that are quilty. And bedspreads. And a back pack. I envy your skill set! 🙂

    The funny part about me learning to quilt is that I knew it was a “skill” which I already had, from another life. I remembered it. But then, this is a NEW life, with NEW ways, so I had to learn it all over again.

    (The same with playing the piano, but that one was more than this wee smooth brain could recall.)

  2. Love the flying theme & the card! I had a thing for unicorns & pegasi when I was a little girl.

    The “quilty things” are gorgeous indeed! (And thanks, Robin, for that awesome new terminology 🙂 )
