Bargain Hunting

             There are those among us who are serenely satisfied.  And then, there are others.  Some who (like me!) have, what Dan calls, a screaming case of The Wants.

              No where, in the Grand Plan, does it say that we must go without.  That we must all live a stripped down monastic existence.  (Which is beautiful and clean and perfect for a monk.)

             No.  It is absolutely fine to acquire and appreciate lovely items.  They bring us joy and they are worthwhile.  Which is exactly what the Universe is all about.

             However, what we need to keep in mind, is that we can’t just fling ourselves at the market place, shopping bags flailing behind us like mad little greedy trolls.  We need to go with care.  And with…….

a critical eye.

             Discernment is our key word right now.  Being cautious, and watching out for those perfectly timed miracle deals.  It is in our best interest to be thoughtful, mindful, and bring special treasures into our home by choosing wisely and with love.

             And speaking of perfect timing, our daily draw couldn’t BE more on target.

oracle cards, mermaid and dolphin messages, synchronicity,

“Synchronicity  ~

‘Your prayers and questions are being answered by synchronistic events.

Notice them in order to increase their flow.’

As a result of your prayers and manifestation work, you’re now attracting synchronistic events.  Those ‘chance meetings,’ information that you just ‘happen’ to receive, and other synchronicities are really answered prayers.  

By drawing this card, the Universe calls your attention to the synchronicity and serendipity happening in your life.  The more you notice these magical events, the more they’ll occur for you.   Even better, write them down in a journal as a way to stimulate more synchronicity in your life.

You may already know that there are no coincidental or accidental occurrences.  This card reflects your recent focus on positive thoughts, which are being directed toward your desires. 

Like a magical energy beam that can influence physical objects, your optimism and faith are reshaping your life into a masterpiece that reflects your higher self.”

Today’s Sharing:

is this delightful duo of hand-drawn greeting cards that we recently picked up while attending a local festival.  (This was a mindful and budget-friendly purchase, in keeping with our theme.)

The other one, with its back to you, is a similar design.

The other one, with its back to you, is a similar design (but I wanted to show both sides).

 

             Whenever there’s art on display, I look to see if they’ve reproduced their work smaller.  I can’t do anything like this, but I always appreciate those who can.  And I like to support them whenever possible.  We all have our strengths!

Further Sharing:

is that I just found out more about this artist.  HERE is her site, and HERE is her Etsy page.    Now, leave me alone while I  stalk her unmercifully  go see if she’s on Twitter or Instagram or Pinterest.

  1. How can you not love a card whose message is brought by dolphins? Very cool! On our recent travels, there were many things that would have loved to have come home with us, two in particular: A Black Forest cuckoo clock with bears and tubas on it (really!) and a kilt. Baring that, the other usual suspects (sweatshirts/t-shirts) could have been found a-plenty. Our limit was bulk; as much of our travel was done by 3 or 4 people in a vehicle, we could only have one small suitcase apiece. We ended up with postcards and refrigerator magnets (yes, we do that) and saved probably close to 1,000.00 by doing so. Which is nice, sitting here, as we get the bills starting to come in.

  2. Wow. I really like this artists work. She has a picture of two kids hunting fireflies that is awesome.

    I have been trying to restrain myself from even the bargains till I put this house to rights. Unless there is a clear and useful purpose. I realized when I redid my monthly boxes last year that having things I loved didn’t do me any good if I never saw or used them. Sooo, I’m doing my best not to add to the pile until I’ve put everything back to rights.(whimper) All bets are off when it comes to crystals though. 😀 (Renfest starts next weekend, I think!!!)

    Well, yeah. Crystals!
