Trying for Tranquility

             When I turned our card over today, I literally Laughed Out Loud; it could not BE more perfect for our current theme.  And if you know me in any way, you know that “silence” is probably the very LAST word that could be used to describe me.

            But, I knew that this draw was what we needed to be looking at right now, it just goes so well with all that I was shown this morning, it has everything to do with these same sentiments.

            (Also?  Oh, yeah, we got us a theme.)

Let go to bring in.

             When we open ourselves to quiet, contemplative moments, being still, we are becoming available to healing and lovingkindness.  When we create a void, it must be filled.  Combine these two Universal laws and we have our key for right now.

             Release what no longer serves.  Recharge in our stillness.  Receive the gifts that we so earnestly deserve.

“Stepping Into Stillness  ~

‘My power is born in the majesty of silence.’

Card Meaning:

Take a moment to enter into the silent, deep places within you.  Be still.  Let everything go, and focus on what is truly important.

Imagine spiraling down into the source of your essence.  Breathe deeply.  Allow your body to relax into the present moment, the here-and-now.

The Universe wants you to know:

Deep within you is an inner sanctuary.  Having this inner peace, however, doesn’t mean that there isn’t chaos or disharmony around you.

It means that no matter what is occurring in your life, you can observe it from a place of stillness.  Surrender to the sweet energy of quietude; avoid the temptation to embrace the drama and urgency of life.

Affirm that you have all the time you need.  Power is born in stillness, and your potential is dramatically expanding in the majesty of silence.

Questions to ask yourself:

What do I need to stop or surrender in my life?  How can I enter into my inner stillness?  As I become still, what will expand in my life; what will contract?

Affirmation:

My power is born in the majesty of silence.”

             There are parts of Daniel’s uniform which don’t “wash” real well.  And yet, they need to be cleaned, or at least, refreshed.  A few years ago we invented our own product for general misting purposes.  It’s like the commercially available ones, but not filled with unpronounceable petroleum-based toxins.

             Spritzed on just about anything absorbent, our success-rate has been entirely positive, we continue to be wonderfully surprised.   (Not to mention, it’s stupid-cheap to make.)

             Basically, the ingredients are just cheap vodka, distilled/infused greenery (flowers, herbage from the yard), water, and a few drops of essential oils (he blended four this time).   The latest batch is beyond yummy.

             (Because I know some of you will ask: clary sage, rosemary, myrrh, and one other which escapes me now.)

One thought on “Trying for Tranquility

  1. Great recipe for freshening the body armor, and way better than Fabreeze, which is what everyone else uses. I need to make some of that for car deodorizer. I have mint and lavender in abundance.

    Good message for today. I think I will go be silent in the yard…next to the mint.

    Yes, make some!
