In yesterday’s message, we heard about how uncomplicated, but still challenging, it is to switch-out negativity for a better attitude.  Today, we need to go further.  Apparently.

             There are massive volumes devoted to the idea that a mindful life is more beneficial.  And that’s what I was reminded of this morning, along with this:

the depth of simple.

             Interestingly enough, this is actually a concept that I’ve been a huge proponent of for a very very long time.  Now, am I good at living it?  Nope.

             It is totally a struggle to disengage from that auto-response of “GAH!  What the fuck?!”  Which makes our reminder right now all the more valuable.  When we consciously set out to step away from that default reaction of PANIC! we are already making great strides.

             Healing and serenity are not a destination, they are the journey.  So when we make progress, we know we’ve done well.

             As I stood before the card altar earlier, my attention was drawn to this stack.  So, clearly, the Universe knows we’ve earned a nice reward.


“Miracle Healing  ~

‘Expect a miracle.  You have prayed for assistance, and it is forthcoming.  The more completely you surrender your situation to (Mr and Mrs) God, the more rapidly you will realize your healing.’

Heaven is completely on your side, and your prayers have been heard and answered.  You needn’t beg or petition for help, as your situation is already healed in truth.

The healed reality is one of several parallel realities currently available to you.  You have the choice, through your thoughts, emotions, and intentions, to experience the highest possible reality for yourself.

You access your healed situation through faith and gratitude.  To feel these powerful catalyzing emotions, say mentally or aloud, ‘I am tired of thinking about this situation.  I don’t want to deal with it any longer.  Here, I’m giving the entire thing over to the Universe, so it can be resolved.  Thank you so much for taking care of everything.’

Then, detach completely from the situation.  See yourself placing it in the palm of the loving hand of Divine Source.  Feel grateful that your situation is now resolved, and be open to the creative solution that greets you.


In truth, everything and everyone, including myself, is healed right now.  I focus on this truth, instead of on illusion of fear.”

Today’s Sharing:

is what I learned while on the phone with my mother today.  She mails her rent checks to the property management firm.  In a beautifully illustrated greeting card.  With an uplifting or inspirational phrase inside.

             Because, as she told me, “those poor girls are probably barely making minimum damn wage, and all they get all shittin’ day long is bitchy complaints from grouchy old people who aren’t having any more fun than they are.”  She thought it would be nice for the office women to open a pretty card with some happy thoughts included inside.

             And as Dan said, because THAT’s who my Mom is.  And THAT is a lesson we can all learn from.

  1. “It is totally a struggle to disengage from that auto-response of “GAH! What the fuck?!” ” THIS! I AM going to beat this response to death before I die. I swear. I’m better now that I’m older. But still. It must go.

    Oooo, such a wonderful thing your mother does! Definitely one for the ‘attitude of gratitude’ list.

    Also, I am having one of my ‘that spelling doesn’t look right’ days. So I went to another page to type in ‘attitude of gratitude’ (Yeah, I should have just scrolled down your page to the ‘Wisdom’ section but didn’t think of it till after. Guess I was supposed to go ‘a-googling’.) And the following link grabbed my eye and I clicked just take a peak. It’s a little sappy, but I really liked the bottom part of the article. Enjoy!

    Thank you so much for sharing this!!!

  2. Your mother sounds delightful. What a lovely, warm, gesture to make. We should all take a page from her book.

    If more people were like my mother, we’d live in an amazingly wonderful place.

  3. Probably should have waited to read this card until the end of the day, instead of the beginning, since reading it before my crappy day (part 2) didn’t help. With Mercury in retrograde and all of my messages telling me to retreat, relax, take time for myself… All right, Universe. I am giving this crappy situation into your hands. I am tired of thinking about it, and I don’t want to deal with it any more. Thank you for resolving it for me.

    Also, your mom is awesome.

    Letting a problem go is sometimes the only good part of a bad day.

  4. and me. Love this card and the message, and I have a couple of things that I am more than happy to give over. I don’t know why I didn’t think of it myself.

    Because, we can NEVER think of it for ourselves. It’s why we need our friends. 😉
