Our message today is from gathered sources. What I heard, saw, felt, and later, what I came across in my day.
There are a few parts to it, one being the idea from our daily draw (which I was made aware of no fewer than three times, not including when I flipped that card over).
Another calls us back to an earlier reminder of how we need to reach out when we are struggling. Not try to just shove our way through life unaided.
The one clear word which made itself known was:
So, as I see it, the suggestion is to decisively and without hesitation, ask for help and then rest. Which, ya know, as a message, is pretty nice.
(And, I adore this illustration. Maybe this will be the next one that I need to get enlarged. It’s such a pleasingly calm and serene image.)
“Sleep ~ Guardian Angel
Take a look at the topic of sleep in answer to your question. Most likely, this is a message for you to get more rest. Cut unnecessary activities from your schedule and get a good night’s sleep.
If emotional upsets are keeping you awake, give them to the Universe and to your angels. You can easily do this by mentally picturing your angel holding a bucket. Put any troubles into the bucket, and watch the angel take them away to Heaven, where everything is resolved.
Make sure that your sleeping space is conducive to a good night’s rest. Your increasing sensitivity means that you need to avoid chemicals or allergens in your bedroom; and it also needs to be dark, quiet, and cool. Fresh air can help you as well.
This is also a message to take more time for rest during the day. You’re pushing yourself too hard. Avoid or cut down on stimulants such as caffeine, sugar, nicotine, and chocolate.
Take frequent meditation breaks – even two minutes of closing your eyes, taking deep breaths, and holding positive thoughts will help.”
I can see more of what Doreen is going for here than I did the first few times I read this definition. But still, I won’t be cutting out chocolate or sugar any time soon. I no longer drink coffee, but that’s not to say a tea or a chai wouldn’t be welcome as a lovely treat.
Also, it’s important (absolutely!) that we listen to this suggestion about the Quick Two Minutes. Seriously, stepping away for a just that gentle recharge makes such a positive difference.

is this view of where I took a tiny rest earlier in the afternoon.
I have my choice of two bus stops. The one that was shared last time (and is viewed below), and this one. The difference of distance is less than .o1 of a mile. (Or something very math-y and small.)
My son says it’s the route of a three sided box. Imagine that we are leaving The Burrow, going right at the gate, right out the driveway and down past two addresses worth, right again down more hill for an entire long block, then right again for another half a block, then on your right, will be that small oasis featured above.
And if we were to look up the hill, we’d be directly BELOW our house! But with other people’s homes in the way.
The other option is to head left up the hill from our driveway, for almost 2 blocks and then drop down to this.
As I said, it’s really a matter of whether I want to march up/down a-bunch-all-at-once, or, more gradually. Either one though, I have the option to sit and rest. Win win.
