Attentiveness

             As we talk about Change, the cycling of seasons, and adaptation to what is new or unknown in our lives, we also need to keep in mind what we do with all of this material.

             What I was shown this morning will focus our attention on not acquiesce, so much as acceptance.  (And yes, they ARE different.)  We are reminded that when we see what needs doing, and then DO IT, we are not only in service, but we are advancing our own soul’s journey.

             To see and know, then do and follow up, is to be the best kind of steward.

Comprehension and Compassion

             As you know, my favorite way to approach my own shortcomings or “down” attitude is to get out of my own head.  To reach out, lend a hand, and be of use.  It works.

             And that’s what we are looking at here.  Accept and understand, feel the need, and then, act on it.

             Another excellent way of moving forward, emotionally / physically / spiritually, is what our daily draw brings up.  The next step of getting out of our own heads is to get out of the house.

             Yes, even in the Fall and Winter.  Remember, there is no bad weather, merely inappropriate clothing.

“Outdoors  ~  

Archangel Jophiel:

‘Go outside, get some fresh air, and connect with nature to relieve stress and gain new, creative ideas.’

Additional Message:

‘Connecting with nature helps synchronize your rhythms to the universal heartbeat.  In this way, your natural timing improves so that you are in the right place at the right time.

Being in nature renews your spirit and revives your energy level.  Get outside every day, even if it takes some effort on your part.  Once you’re in nature, take time to smell the roses and observe the glorious beauty.

 Know that you are part of nature, and that you are also beautiful.’

Working with Archangel Jophiel:

She sees beauty in everything and everyone, and helps you do the same.  Jophiel knows that when we spend regular time outdoors, we’re cleared of lower energies, and naturally have a more beautiful outlook on life.

Call upon Jophiel to ease your schedule to allow for outdoor time . . . . connect to nature in any way that pleases you.”

             He’s quite content to just sit there.  Until, ya know, I move into the vicinity of the kitchen.  So far, no problems on the Grand-dog sitting front.  Well, with that one exception.  First day here, rolled in gawdknowswhat and had to be bathed immediately.

             But otherwise, mostly smooth-sailing.

  1. Silly Granddog… Happy dog, however, it sure looks like.

    Good message about the outdoors. Gotta go dig out my raincoat for the dog walk today. Should be some new sniffs for the pups.

    I tossed a light jacket into the saddlebags, but then, it was too muggy and I felt not-great, so I just drove to the pool. With no coat at all. 😕

  2. Some of us can’t afford the clothing that would allow outdoors in winter. That’s as far into a rant as I’m going, ’cause what they are charging for “good” winter wear just freakin’ exploded my head clear off. What’s that shit made of, gold? (deeeeeep breath). AAARRGGHH!!!

    Moving on. I will be excavating my plant stands in the near future. The electricity be damned. Once upon a time I had plants all over my house. I’m going to go back down that road. I’ll bring the outside inside. I was much happier in the winter when I was puttering around the house watering and pinching things back. Lord knows I could use all the extra light I can get in the winter.

    Yeah, I’m in a snit. Can you tell? 🙂

    As for the Grand-dog, he’s adorable. If I had to guess, he probably found deer poop to roll in. Why dogs love deer poop, I do not know. Be glad he didn’t eat it and then come in the house and puke it up all over your carpet. Getting that smell out of your rug is a major job!

    I totally get you on the pricing.
    In. Fucking. Sane.

    Idea, though. There’s always the old-fashioned way, layers of natural fibers (wool, mostly). Purchased second-hand or dug out of the attic, very affordable.

    Yes, bringing the outdoors inside is an excellent solution. But also, we all could still definitely up our out-in-nature time.

    In regards to Indi and the Very Bad Smell, it was most likely turkey poop. The deer don’t frequent our frontyard, and the grand-dogs are mostly all too small to go in the backyard.

    • TURKEY POOP?! OMG. EEEWWW!!! That stuff is beyond disgusting. My mom gets turkeys in her yard ’cause the neighbors put food out for ALL the animals (the husband now has mental and health issues, poor guy). (And their backyard is now a manure mud pit.) {{{HUGS}}} to you.

      I have wool. And one year I just asked for GC’s for Christmas so I could buy a parka and boots rated for minus 30 degrees. They help somewhat as long as it doesn’t go below about 25 – 28 degrees above zero. With them I’ve got about an hour. My circulation is such that if it’s 80 degrees out and I’m sweaty and go sit in the shade and the wind kicks up, I start turning blue and everything shuts down. It’s a real bite in the ass.
