The message I woke up with today seems fairly basic.  Turns out, it’s kind of not.  Not everyone is doing all that they can to address it properly.  (Or, at least, to the best of their abilities.)

             What do we need to stay healthy?   Stay healthy and do our jobs?  (And by “jobs,” the Universe means walk our path, serve in the highest possible way.)  We require very few simple components.

            All of them equally necessary.  But this morning’s line item was made more obvious than the others.  Both spiritually and physically.

Rest

             When our bodies and minds don’t receive adequate unconscious time, we are on the road to illness.  On a direct bus to Unhealthy Town.

             There is no way to say this without upsetting a few folks, but it’s how things are.  “Surviving” on small, too few hours of sleep is not a trait to be proud of, nor something to strive towards.  It’s a dangerous and disruptive problem which needs to be solved.

             Yes, there’s science behind the idea, but more importantly to me, that’s the actual truth.   Being tired runs our body down.  Period.

             Bottom line, we must get enough rest.  And we must get it on a regular and steady basis.

             Still within our regular rotation around the card altar right now, we’re being reminded of another Truth.

mermaid messages, rest, blessed change

“Blessed Change  ~

‘A major change brings you great blessings.’

Although you may feel as if your life is upside down right now, everything that’s occurring is for the best.  This card assures you that the changes in your life are actually helping you leave behind that which no longer serves you.

Your spiritual purpose with the old situation is now complete.  You are urged to stay centered in grace and acceptance.

Keep affirming,

‘I welcome Divinely inspired change, and I stay centered in the eye of the hurricane as change occurs around and within me.  All change is for my highest good.  I know that love is stable and always provides for me and my loved ones – no matter what our outer situations appear to be.’

Change ushers in fresh opportunities to learn, grow, prosper, and create new relationships.  The key is to keep breathing and enjoy the changes, even if they are intimidating.  

If the Universe pushes you toward new responsibilities, know that you’re qualified in Heaven’s eyes.”

has no photo, just news because I saw it from the bus window.  A neighbor of mine was unloading bee boxes from a big truck.  Somewhere, in a near-by backyard, we have tiny new friends to pollinate and keep our spot on the map happily sweet.
