We, the Pentacle People and some extendeds, have often wondered if there’s a competition gene.  Has science found it yet?  Because if it’s out there (or, more accurately, in there), this family was born without it, going all the way back, many, many generations.

             It’s not that we don’t follow and cheer for a number of professional and college sports teams, we all do.  (Football and baseball, almost exclusively.)  In our day-to-day though, we’re just not always out for the win,or the power over.

             Stepping on others, in our race to the top, simply holds no appeal.  We’re not even IN the race.

             These are the ideas and reminders that I woke up with today.

Complimentary, not competitive.

Work together, not against.

             In the focus of our life purpose, “going head-to-head” is not the best choice.  Standing “side-by-side” is always a better option.  Any time we can be as one with many, instead of divisive and separate, that’s the route to take.

             The esoteric depth of this message is defined beautifully within our daily draw.  Look at what’s sitting on the card altar right now.


“Gold  ~

 value, confidence, self worth, money, wealth

This Gold card is a symbolic reflection of your true inner worth.  At the core of your being there exists a pure golden essence with an infinite capacity to create.

You are being urged to look within, to go beyond the superficial personality and connect through contemplation and meditation with your true nature.

There is a yearning within you to manifest all your heart desires.  At the top of that list you will discover a yearning for financial wealth and freedom, and for the self confidence that money can bring.

Do not delude yourself that somehow money is bad or that it does not align with your spiritual ideals.  Money is just as much a part of (Mr and Mrs) God’s creation as we are.   In actuality, it is neither good nor bad, rather, it is something to be valued and put to good use.

Sit quietly for a few minutes each day and lovingly imagine yourself having and achieving all your heart desires.  Then, set a goal – one that you feel is achievable in the short term. 

Focus on it each day until it manifests.  Then set a new goal, and so on.  Goals are reached one step at a time; an ongoing journey you head towards.

Set clear goals, yet remember to always keep focused on the present, for it is in the present that all unfolds.

You deserve to be and have all your heart desires.


Within my heart flows a river of gold.

I am one with the eternal light of creation.

I manifest my dreams.

I create abundance in my life through love.”

  1. Oh, Londonmabel, you made me laugh! Don’t we all wish!

    And, yay, for you and another water day! (Though I have to wonder about some of those positions “under?” water?)

    No, we don’t go under the water, our pool has bars on the sides, it used to be an Easters Seals-owned facility. So everything, classes as well as premises, are adapted for special needs. With the option of stretching or moving further if one is able. The teacher of Aqua Yoga is trained (and much experienced) in standard practice and adaptive.
