There are some of us who purchase pre-worn garments, and others who shop exclusively for new clothing.  What our message talks about today is the correlation between this observation, and how we deal with the lessons in our lives.

            Sometimes, the adventure of hunting down a piece of clothing is very similar to the drama/joy of walking our path.  We often end up with an item of great value in the process.

As Is

             When we accept that some things just ARE, then we don’t have to keep expecting them to be another way.  Used clothes shopping is a gamble, and it takes time.  New clothes shopping is also chancy, but maybe doesn’t have that lost-in-the-wilderness hunting feel to it.

             If one person has more time than money, and also feels like purchasing from big-box retailers is not a way she wants to live, that’s a perfectly valid choice.  Just as, if an individual has plenty of cash and wants to go out and acquire something new and shiny.

             It’s about choice, and options, and being able to say, with conviction and pride, that we stand on our own feet and we select from what is available.  We live with our path As it Is.  We accept that sometimes, an old pre-owned item might work as well as anything new and expensive.  Both will do the job.  It’s up to us to decide where we go to get it.

             In the regular rotation around our card altar right now, we’re being handed a validating gift.   And when we are presented with such, we say, thank you.


“Beryl  ~

resolution, stress reduction, potential new possibilities

An ongoing problem or dilemma will soon be resolved in an unexpected way.  As a consequence, your stress levels and anxiety will decrease.

Through this, exciting new pathways open for you and you discover new possibilities for your life.  As this current situation is resolved you will simultaneously and subconsciously let go of a past regret or guilt that has only served to sabotage the creative possibilities that have been available for you for quite some time.

It is time for you to shine!

Open your heart and you’ll see the unlimited potential that resides within you.”

  1. I’ve never heard of Funkins either. I wouldn’t want them for outside. It sounds like they’re light and we are on a hill which = wind. We have problems with the paper bags things – AARGH I can’t remember the damn name – you put sand in the bottom of the bag and then a candle and it lights up the bag. And, anyway, NO SEEDS TO ROAST!

    However, I think they would be perfect for inside the house. None of the furry residents would think they’re food and you wouldn’t have to worry about them rotting and stinking up the place or ruining the furniture (it is amazing how fast some of those pumpkins will give up the ghost). 🙂

  2. Thank you. I love Beryl. Such lovely light through this gem. It was my maternal grandmother’s name, and my aunt’s name, so it’s extra special to me. I could use a dose of validation with a side of stress reduction. : )

    Absolutely EXTRA special!
